I am worried that I still haven't married my daughter.” Everyone present was surprised to hear that Shri Bhishmaji has a daughter despite having taken an oath of celibacy. Shri Bhishmaji continued to describe that this unmarried daughter is his mind. Our mind is not single; it is attached to wealth, name and people. Shri Bhishmaji claims that his mind is single and he would like to wed it to Shri Krishna.

Each tree had a name which revealed their identity in terms of the size, shape or taste of the mangos they gave. Thus thondan mavu (thondan indicating big size, mavu is mango tree), Thatha Kokkan gaining its name by the parrot-beak shape of the lower end of the mango, Chunayan, indicative of the sour taste of the mango, Mundan being small in shape, Panchaarakkandy again declaring its extra sweet taste, Panchaara being the colloquial word for sugar, Balinchian disclosing its bland taste and so on were the names of different mango trees in the large compound.

Years pass; courts, people and the media soon move on to other cases.” The same feeling, in different situations has been finding expression through word of mouth, media reports and on faces of aam admi captured by electronic media and telecast across the world. The simmering discontent in the minds of one billion plus people who toiled to make India rich and were denied any share in the end-product of their work is there for all to see. This discontent is finding expression in various forms, some peaceful, some violent, and most of the time as statistics on hunger deaths, increasing number of people going down the “poverty line” which itself is defective and designed to camouflage real situation. The political leadership is being blind to the realities when they are trying even at this late hour to resolve the issues being focused in well-intentioned movements like the one spearheaded by Anna Hazare. The issues get dodged or diverted by raising trivial differences of views, where the real problem is the fear of any ‘watchdog’. 3) The Commissioner for Lost Causes : Arun Shourie In conversation https://youtu.be/40t26lmte3Q The Book : Commissioner For Lost Causes https://amzn.eu/d/dp7fBfP A comprehensive account of dramatic incidents like getting governments to swallow legislation against the press, unseating of chief ministers, a prime minister unspooling himself even as manoeuvres to unseat him are scotched, a deputy prime minister trying to dislodge colleagues with fabricated documents, people's movements ending up as rivulets in the sand, The Commissioner for Lost Causes discusses Shourie's innings, the calumny hurled at him, his dismissal, and his being recalled and removed again.

A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. Saint Basil In a letter Saint Basil described his spiritual awakening : I had wasted much time on follies and spent nearly all of my youth in vain labors, and devotion to the teachings of a wisdom that God had made foolish. Suddenly, I awoke as out of a deep sleep. I beheld the wonderful light of the Gospel truth, and I recognized the nothingness of the wisdom of the princes of this world.
