The Swami and the “Friends”

A raging controversy in the Internet, Press and in conversations about the so called indiscretions  of Swami Nithyananda is going on these days.  For those not familiar with the Swami he is a young sanyasin well versed in sanatana dharma who is also an erudite scholar.  I  came to know of him through the columns […]

A Selfless Soul in the Service of the Community

Among the teeming millions of Indians there are a few who go about doing little things for society unobtrusively without any expectation of reward or glory. They go about doing their things even though there is hardly any appreciation for their work. I am going to relate one such person whom I came across recently. […]

A Monumental Effort

The prodigious run machine scaled new heights in his illustrious career when he accomplished the hitherto uncharted pinnacle in limited overs cricket to reach the magic figure of a double century without being dismissed.  In the annals of cricketing history the feat has not been accomplished by cricketers of any hue. Hail the phenomenon that […]

Will the present religious practices lead one to salvation?

Religion is the fulcrum on which one's life turns from one experience to another.  Great many religious leaders have over centuries attempted to give a direction to man's yearning for spiritual experiences. Man finds through this experience the path for realization of self.  The ultimate self realization is achieved by great souls by renouncing all […]

A Letter to my daughter, Raji…..

Dear Raju, We haven't exchanged  mails for quite some time.  I thought I might set it right by mailing this.  Of course we have been getting news of each other via telephone.  But the freedom of writing in detail cannot be accomplished by a few minutes of a conversation over the 'phone. I am in […]

Cricket- You Beautiful Game!

History was made for the second time in recent years on the 15th December when India and  Sri Lanka met in an exciting cricket match.  A total score of 825 in one day from only 100 overs is unheard of in the annals of the history of the game. Yet the result  was reached only […]

Reading Maketh a Man

It has often been said that reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. We read for different reasons – to be informed, to be educated, for pleasure, for peace of mind. Reading can quicken the pulse, equally it can soothe the soul.  It provides answers, it provokes questions.  Francis Bacon, the […]

My Grand Daughter Sara

Amongst the loveliest things one enjoys in one's old age is the companionship of kids. Their utter innocence and love overwhelms you.  The child is the father of God so goes the saying.  Some of their pranks amazes you no end. I had recently an occasion to spend some time with my youngest grand daughter […]

Story of an Unfulfilled Life

I am pushing 80 and my thoughts these days are those of reviews of days gone by, the things I have done or let slip away and tried to fulfill many ambitions that I nurtured during the long journey.   As a toddler I looked up to my mother for solace and comfort.  There was […]

Exercising my memories

Words have always fascinated me.  It is reported that the English language has banked over a million words and continues growing!   For nearly four score years I have been romancing with the English language, learning  a clutch of new words every day and try using them in conversations or writing.  This way I developed a […]

THE FALL OF THE MIGHTY

England regained the Ashes, a mythical jar containing  the bails burnt into ashes by a few disappointed Englishmen after England was defeated by the Australians in a test series many moons ago.  The urn is presented to the team that wins a series.  The biennial contest is played on home and away basis between the […]

Roger Federer – The undisputed King of Tennis

Roger Federer became the undisputed King of Tennis early in July this year. Yet it could not have come about.   History was beckoning Roger at Wimbledon this year.  Having pocketed the hitherto elusive French Open earlier he completed a successful  Grand Slam campaign and was ready for the assault on the Wimbledon Championship. Winning […]

Evolution of mankind

Recently I read a treatise on how the human being evolved since time immemorial.  It was evidently written several centuries ago by the Rishis of ancient India which retains its relevance even today.   This knowledge is founded without the tools of modern science when the first requirement of every physician today is to take a […]

Cycle of Life and Death

There is a pattern in Life.  Our ancient philosophers have stated that man is made up of a body and a soul.  While the body is discarded after it has served its purpose the soul is liberated perhaps to find a different body.   This is to say that the soul is not perishable as is […]

Technological Revolution

Way back in the Fifties and Sixties in India,  IT as we know it today was not even in the horizon. Life was going on most of the time in a leisurely and languid mode. There was no indication of the rapid strides that were being made in the evolution of techology in the rest of […]

Debacle

Dhoni's men were humbled in the T20 World Championship but there is no room for recrimination.  In any game of contest between two teams of equal strength one team has to lose especially in the T20 format which is the most unpredictable of the three forms of cricket where there is no room for strategy […]
