July 13, we didn't have electricity which affected WiFi (hope it doesn't get autocorrected in transmission). Mobile time had to be rationed. So we could talk more. Yesterday we had a hospital visit.

Agreed. Shakespeare wrote in 'The Merchant of Venice' : "The quality of mercy is not strain'd It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath : It is twice bless'd It blesseth him that gives and him that takes". Agreed. Both these qualities-forgiving and showing mercy- rightly belong to the domain of God for all those who believe in God. But how can we say that the same God sends pestilences like the latest one Covid19? Even now many Americans believe, like their former President, that the Covid was sent by the Chinese from some pestilence manufacturing factory in their country. In a sense, it is better to think so rather than attributing it to God. Some western philosophers like Kant will say that, because God being perfect, it is only logical to presume that it was He who had sent the Covid. We may also say that, considering God as having opposing attributes is there in Hinduism too quoting lines from Vishnusahasranamam (Thousand names of Vishnu) But these are all apex level thoughts. In my limited knowledge of the puranas I have not come across any story where God is depicted as an evil character or any instance of any one addressing Him as 'Duraatman' (The evil soul). In a purely subjective sense, one may say that Covid was a 'divine intervention' if it had taken away a Hitler-like neighbour, but it is not very proper to say that this pestilence that consumed millions is 'divine intervention'. Even those handling economics at macro levels are using this expression! At least our esteemed readers, I hope, will abstain from doing so, for it seems to be an insult to the Bhakta poet Melputhur who addressed the Lord as' Kaarunyasindho' ( the ocean of compassion). (As regards the observation "Even now many Americans believe, like their former President, that the Covid was sent by the Chinese from some pestilence manufacturing factory in their country." If this is the official view of their country, they would have invited Chinese (and the invitation will be gladly accepted) and established several factories to manufacture the C-thing and patented it. The virus would have been given free to allies from where our friends would have smuggled it here and sold in black market. If there was someone above, watching, the fellow would have eradicated poverty and corruption (present koshish is to remove the word from the dictionary) and supplied free food, drinking water and electricity to all, like Kejriwal. I think the almighty is comfortably sleeping. Let's not disturb. Personally I consider good sleep, good appetite and good health as a blessing, even for Gods-Warrier) E Faith Dr Charan Singh https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1547311081718104064?s=20&t=wzANzfKrk7TtocEHJK1BOA Unity in Diversity - 312 दीन का दइआलु माधौ गरब परहारी चरन सरन नामा बलि तिहारी God, you are kind to hapless and destroyer of pride Namdev is at your feet and seeks your sanctuary to be protected Namdev, Raag Dhanasri, 694, SGGS F Leisure Weather Forecast* https://photos.app.goo.gl/4qeaMJGJjxPTvwgP8 *Shared by Sudha Warrier Mumbai Some short stories* : 1. Today I donated my watch, phone and R500 to a poor guy. You don't know the happiness I felt as I saw him put his knife back in his pocket. 2. I miss times when I was working at the zoo. My boss fired me just because I left the lion's gate open. I mean who would steal a lion? 3. I was in a cab today and the cab driver said, "I love my job, I'm my own boss. Nobody tells me what to do.“Then I said, "turn left". ~~~~ EVER WONDER- WHY Why do supermarkets make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get to the Pharmacy for their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front? Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and yet get a diet coke? Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage? Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darkens our skin? Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed? Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'? Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word? Why is it that doctors and attorneys call what they do 'practice'? Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavoring, and dish washing liquid made with real lemons? Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called the rush hour? Why didn't Noah swat those two damned mosquitoes? Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?? Why don't sheep shrink when it rains, whereas Sweaters of Wool, does? Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal? *Shared in groups by S Venugopal 3) Got-Rum?* An Army officer was visiting a temple in South India, Poojari came close to him & asked in low voice: "Got Rum" !!? He winked and replied: "Yes, in my car, two bottles of Old Monk, Bacardi and Black Dog Whiskey." The Poojari became very angry and asked him to go back .... His wife who realized what went wrong, elbowed him and whispered in his ear, "Pandit ji was asking about your GOTRAM(गोत्र) "... aur tum ko Daaru ke siwa kuch aur sunaee nahin deta.. *Shared in RBI Retirees Group Thiruvananthapuram G Quotes about waiting https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/waiting-quotes Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
