...that every increased possession loads us with a new
weariness.

Life is not
about our physical or material possessions, it is about
the agenda of our soul. When material possessions
serve that agenda, they can be wonderful and are to
be celebrated. But if they come between us and the 
soul, then we may very well be delayed on our holy
journey

Our journey is the path back to peace, to harmony,
to deep inner joy, to love, and to God.

....that you must invest three percent of your income in
your self-development in order to guarantee your future.

Brian Tracy said that and he was right. I know you really
want to take that class or that seminaror that spiritual
growth retreat, but you think you can't afford it. The truth
may be that you can't afford not to.

Try following your highest impulse. Your mind rarely
invites you to explore things that are worthless -- and
your soul never does.

..that if you are going to fuss over things, it is important
to pick your battles.

The ideal, of course, would be to "fuss" over nothing.
But given that we are all human, that may not be possible.
What is possible is picking much more carefully the things
that we are prepared to make a fuss over.

Ask yourself: "How much difference will this make when 
I'm 85?" If you think it will matter then, let it matter now.
If you make everything matter now, you may not get to
be 85.

....that the cycles of life are endless -- and always serve
you, because life is a process that serves Life Itself.

When things seeem to be shifting away from you,
moving in the other direction, closing doors,
shutting own opportunities, remember that all things
are cyclical -- including Life Itself.

What you are experiencing is temporary -- whether it's
"good" OR "bad." So stop calling it one thing or the
other, and simply embrace it as What's Happening Now.
You'll move through it all much more peacefully. And
one day you'll call it ALL "good."

Laugh ! It is good for health



A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to The ostrich, "What's yours?" "I'll have the same," says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That will Be $9.40 please" The man reaches into his pocket and

Pulls out the exact change for payment. The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man Says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke."

The ostrich says, "I'll have the same."

Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again. "The usual?" Asks the waitress. "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and A salad," says the man. "Same," says the ostrich. Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be $32.62." Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and Places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. "Excuse me, Sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?"

"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and Found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered Me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money Would always be there."

"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people would ask for a Million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"

"That's right..Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?"

The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick with a big ass and long legs, who agrees with everything I say.."

Will this happen for the better future of India?


This was an open letter written by Mr. Chetan Bagat in Times of India. How good it will be for India, if Mr. Modi and Mr. Nitish Kumar come together
Dear Nitish-ji,

I remember visiting Patna in November 2010. It was right after your election victory in which you clobbered your opponents. There was euphoria amongst common people. From the airport taxi driver, the hotel reception staff and litti-chokha stall owners to journalists to IAS officers, everyone spoke about how Bihar was changing for the better because of you. I am your fan too. We remember the lawlessness and lack of progress in Bihar before you. You have transformed one the most difficult to govern regions of India. You also have impeccable conduct, with the right amount of humility, inclusiveness and secular attitudes.

With such a positive image, however, one thing is surprising. One cannot help but notice a bit of insecurity about your voter base. It is as if you are not sure people in Bihar will vote for you if you do not get your Hindu-Muslim calculations right. For why else would you oppose Narendra Modi as a choice of PM candidate for your bigger national ally BJP, when he is clearly the frontrunner in that party?

Sure, Indian politics works on votebanks. Even a novice political analyst knows that no Indian politician can win without getting the caste, religion and community math right. However, you are no ordinary politician. In a country where the world politician is akin to abuse, you are one of the rare few that command respect. Unlike other politicians, people vote for you, and praise you because of your work.

Perhaps in your earlier days, to establish yourself, you had to play identity politics. Today, Nitish Kumar wins because he has done stellar work. He doesn’t need to be insecure anymore.

We must have a competitive election in 2014, as that will keep both the major parties on their toes. Indians deserve choices, in the leaders that might govern them.

We know who leads the Congress, and there is little debate there. In the BJP, Narendra Modi seems to be the clear standout candidate who can put up a solid fight with the ruling party. This candidate has not been chosen on a whim. It is a result of the popular mood. By not respecting that decision, you are, in a way not respecting the popular mood.

The future of India depends on how well you can come to terms with your apprehensions and insecurities about backing the candidate chosen by your allies.

Do you really want the fourth generation dynasts to have a cakewalk election? Do you really want India to have a PM who never talks to the media or takes questions from people? You, of all people, have come up as a politician on pure merit. Will the end purpose and culmination of all your achievements be to indirectly support a dynastic family with a ruler that will be rarely there for his people?

In asking for a secular PM candidate from your allies, you are implying certain BJP leaders are secular and some are not, which is an indirect slur on the party you are partnering with. It isn’t fair.

In fact, if you do have apprehensions about people’s secular credentials, whether real or perceived, you are needed even more. For you will be the perfect counterbalance to keep any occasional communal tendencies in check.
Nitish Kumar will not only be partnering and supporting the BJP to ensure it does good work, but will also be watching and monitoring, to ensure the secular fabric of the nation is intact. In this way, you are extremely vital in this partnership. You are of course, also vital in your appeal in eastern parts of India, where Mr Modi may not have such a following.

I hope you will reflect on what is at stake here. India’s youth is waiting, almost clamoring for a real leader at the top. You can either help make that happen, or play politics like the rest of them. However, the difference is Nitish-ji, you are not like the rest of them. We have hope from you.

Frankly, if politics were to be played, there can be a solution to your hesitation about Mr Modi. There can be a front candidate, who is more palatable and Mr Modi behind him. This will keep up the appearances, keep you happy, and still give Mr Modi the control.

However, this would be wrong. We have had enough of political games. We don’t want puppet title-holders with unaccountable leaders hiding behind them. Why fake it? If BJP supporters want and see Mr Modi as their leader, why put on a front for appearances? How will it be different from the current setup?

Hence, please for the sake of the country, relent a little. Your vote in Bihar is secure. People of Bihar, Muslims or Hindus or otherwise, have faith in you. They will understand the reasons for you supporting your allies’ choice. You don’t win on vote bank calculations . You are a brand. Your name alone makes people stamp on the ballot paper.

Let’s make 2014 a real fight. And then, may the best man win.

The Nightingale Is Back! Way To Go, Nithyasree!






"Feb.3, Sunday evening was special at The Music Academy Madras/Chennai. For, it was a special concert to celebrate Sri Thyagaraja as an aradhana. Special by two well known vocalists - S Sowmya and Nityashree Mahadevan. Special because Nityashree came on stage a month after she bore a personal tragedy - losing her husband. And the wonderfulness of this concert was the free spirit, verve and passion with which Nityashree performed this evening. With that trademark smile and expressive eyes." (courtesy: Kutcheri Buzz)
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled the light. ~ Albert Schweitzer

They - Sowmya and Nithyasree - may be competitors alright but the picture above (courtesy: Kutcheri Buzz) clearly shows the basic human warmth and camaraderie between the two singers.  Kudos to Sowmya for having shared the stage with Nithyasree yesterday.  The first outing when you stage a comeback after a personal tragedy is the most difficult one and a little bit of support at that critical juncture, is of immense help indeed.

Nithyasree, by bouncing back so soon, has proved that it is all about regenerative capability really because as somebody said "the issue is not simply surviving difficult times, or about emerging stronger, more capable, and wiser than before - it is about having your regenerative capabilities so that you can take advantage of newer opportunities and finally store the capacity to deal with yet another, inevitable downturn that is waiting beyond the bend."
May Nithyasree go from strength to strength now and may she bless us all with her divine music! Here's wishing her all the very best!

..that the opposite of a correct statement is a false
statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may
well be another profound truth.

Niels Bohr said that, and he was right. In fact, there
have been few statements in the history of statement-
making that were more accurate than that one. So be
aware and stay awake! The Law of Opposites
sometimes leads you to a Divine Dichotomy.

Two opposing truths can exist simultaneously in the
same space. Do not therefore assume that That Which
Opposes You is That Which Is Not Good For You.
It may be just the reverse.
