There are super examples of how the so called lowly women have had the blessings of learned but so called intellectuals/upper castes. The birth of the Vishnu roopa Veda Vyaasa is the outstanding example. Born to Paraasara Rishi from a fisherwoman, Veda Vyaasa has no parallel in our scriptures and puraanaas. Similarly, the son born to this Rishi from a "daasi" became the inimitable Saattwik purusha Vidura. Has not the Hindu society accepted them as great men? Even if the then society had not accepted them, would they have ceased to be great? Greatness does not depend on to whom one is born but how one's qualities are moulded. II The story of the sons and the question which son is better> I am reminded of the story of King Lear. Subbaraman 2) M G Warrier Mumbai A reader wanted to know more about D Krishna Warrier.

About Ascetics https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/ascetic-quotes Like : I'm a fairly ascetic person. And I do most of my writing at night. You don't get distracted, your brain goes into what you are writing about, into the world you're writing about, rather than into the world you're in.
