Jumping with joy !!

Today we received the much awaited 80G exemption for ShikshaDaan. It helps us raise more resources and thereby impact even more beneficiaries positively. Phew ! It has been a tough two years because we met so many deserving scholars as we travelled across India, but we were unable […]

A journey left midway …

Today morning KTV was showing the movie “Johnny”. Its a Tamil movie made in 1980 starring Rajinikanth in a double act and Sridevi, as the actress. The storyline is interesting and simple – Sridevi is a popular singer, and Johnny (Rajinikanth) is her ardent fan. Rajinikanth as Johnny is a […]

What makes a leader ?

In the recently concluded T20 match between South Africa and India, the man of the match was Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. He took five wickets and became the first Indian bowler to take 5 wickets in a match in all formats of the game. That’s great and congratulations to him. […]

Your pooch, your poop !

Today we were supposed to be in Murthal early in the morning, having parathas with Anupam, Dhruv, Geojo and Nitin but the plan fell through as Anupam wasn’t well. So we used the time to go for our walk. The daybreak was almost half hour away and there […]

BMK Gita-Gyan 13 C2V23 – Integrity

Verse 23 from Chapter 2 is also something that I chose for the Bhagavad Gita recitation competition at the Ramakrishna Mission, Shillong way back in 1982. Its again a classic verse that speaks of how the soul is unaffected by weapons, fire, water or wind. नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि […]

BMK Gita-Gyan 12 C2V22 – The New

I remember using this verse (verse 22 from chapter 2) during a Bhagvad Gita recitation competition that I participated in at the Ramakrishna Mission in Shillong. वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णाति नरोऽपराणि | तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णा न्यन्यानि संयाति नवानि देही || 22|| vāsānsi jīrṇāni yathā vihāya […]

The first Naga shawl

My father was posted in Shillong during 1980 to 1983. So we got to enjoy a beautiful Shillong before the hoards of Maruti cars took over Burra Bazaar. From Shillong, Appa would go to Tezpur, Zakhama, Bomdila and a few other places on temporary duty and Appa was […]

BMK Gita-Gyan 11 C2V21 – Assumptions

Verse 21 from Chapter 2 of the Bhagavad Gita talks of the how human beings assume that they can kill another human being when in reality, the soul is imperishable… well, this isn’t the only thing we human beings assume. :):). वेदाविनाशिनं नित्यं य एनमजमव्ययम् | कथं स […]
