...that you are okay just the way you are...and so is
everybody else.

Sometimes we want the kind of acceptance that we
arenot willing to give. Yet life is a two-way street,
and we do so much better when we send to others
what we want them to send to us.

Just a gentle reminder today that you are wonderful,
and the person right next to you is, too!

What a fate ?




"Had Shastri (Lal Bahadur)lived another 5 or 10 years, it is

 highly unlikely that Indira Gandhi would ever become PM 

and it is certain that her son would never occupied that 

office, Had Shastri been given another 5 years on earth, 

there would have been no Nehru – Gandhi dynasty, Sanjay 

Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi would almost certainly still be alive, 

Sanjay Gandhi would be failed entrepreneur and Rajiv 

Gandhi a recently retired airline pilot with a passion for 

photography, Sonia Gandhi would still be a devoted and 

loving house wife and Rahul a middle level manager in a 

private sector co."

- from Ramachandra Guha 's recent book: Patriots and Partisans

Amazing




It's a newborn, still in the sac. It's was an amazing opportunity to see something so rare. Like a glimpse of what it's like "on the inside". Hope you all appreciate it as much a s I do. I can't believe how squished up they are, inside of it! Amazing!

Giving birth with the amniotic sac intact is called a "veiled birth." It is very rare but it is possible. It is less painful because the water cushions the baby's head, meaning less bruising for both of you. Don't worry about the baby drowning, he or she will not take a first breath until he/she hits the air for the first time, and the placenta will continue to provide oxygen until that happens..

....that happiness is good health and a bad memory. 

Ingrid Bergman said that, and it is so true. Memories,
of course, bring up moments that are past, whereas
happiness is always found in the moment that is here,
now.

Constantly remembering bad things, or sad things, can
rob you of your present -- that is, your pre-sent -- joy.
Happiness has been sent to you in advance by God. It
is here, in this moment, if you will seize it...and share it.

....that a point of view different from your own might
be wellworth entertaining.

Sometimes it is not easy hearing an idea that is
different from the one you are advancing -- yet it
might be that second idea for which you were actually
reaching for.

Answers arrive in more ways than one. Sometimes
they come through us, and sometimes they come
to us.

...that if you become ruffled with every comment that
you consider a 'slight,' you will never find peace.

Nor will you find it by always separating yourself from
those who ruffle you. You can only end so many
friendships before you find yourself very much alone.
You can keep making new friends, of course, but
sooner or later they will ruffle you -- and then what?

Perhaps the better course might be to let the ruffle
go. People rarely mean it when they do that, and a
touch of gentle tolerance and easy forgiveness every
day is even better than an apple...

My Diary - 18th March 2013



I have today refreshed the Concert No. 88, 92, 116 of D. K. Pattammaal under the label "Concerts".

One of the reader has commented that he is not able to have access to the refreshed concerts even through the column,"search in the blog". The problem may be due to "not typing exactly as Concert - Dr. Balamuralikrishna", as I have typed. Any variation may not give the positive result. Alternatively, you can go to the label "Concerts" and go page by page to locate the particular concert number by going to the new posts at the bottom of the page.

My diary - 15th March 2013



Dr.Rahul kumar has left a new comment on your post "Stotra to excel in studies - 2": 

Can you provide a print button or a link for download ? I want to memorize these lines. 


Yes. You can right click on the matter, and save it in any format you want and then you can get a print out, if you want.

I have today refreshed T.S. Balakrishna Sastrigal - Ekaadasi Mahathmiyam under the label "Devotional"

Is not India shining ?

India is a leadership driven society—it suffices to look at Popatrao Pawar, the village head of Hiware Bazar in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. In the span of twenty years, he transformed his drought-struck poverty-ridden village into one of the best models India has seen.



Before he took over the reins, the village suffered many problems: there was hardly any agriculture in the village from a lack of water, causing villagers to migrate elsewhere as daily wage labourers; the school was non-functional; domestic violence and village fights punctuated lives as alcoholism was rampant; and the surrounding eco-system was seriously degraded.

So how does one actually make a village rise against such problems?
The first thing Pawar did was get rid of the 22 illicit liquor dens, ban consumption of liquor all together, and ban tobacco and gutka.

Then he inspired the villagers to pitch in to build dams and dig ponds to trap the little rain that came in. This new water management system helped immensely as the wells soon filled, allowing farming to begin anew with fields becoming lush and green.

Not wanting to take change for granted, Pawar got water audits done so that there was a close check on water availability. Water was never wasted, as selfless villagers built 52 earthen bunds, two percolation tanks, 32 stone bunds and nine check dams—All through the use of the same government funds available to any other village.

Before 1995, there were 90 open wells with water at 80-125 feet, whereas today, there are 294 open wells with water at 15-40 feet. To put this into context, other villages in the Ahmednagar district have to drill nearly 200 feet to reach water.

Farming flourished as Pawar got farmers to invest in milch cattle, making milk the new gold of the village. While milk production was only 150 litres per day in 1995, today, it has crossed the 4,000 litre threshold! All this helped reverse migration see over 60 families return with the desire of becoming farmers once again to live life with dignity.

Now there are decent-looking houses all over and villagers look content, glowing with happiness. The monthly per capital income has crossed Rs. 30,000, and in a village of 235 families and 1,250 individuals, there are 60 millionaires!

Today there are only three families who live below the poverty line, but the village is now working to help them improve their income with hopes that in another year, no villager be poor. All this is more amazing when taking into account that in 1995, there were 168 BPL families in the village.

But Pawar has not only tackled the economic needs of the village. With regards to the waning ecosystem, he facilitated the planting of over ten lakh trees to fuel languishing bio-diversity; even Babool trees that were earlier cut for fuel are now cared for, as villagers began harvesting its gum that sells for Rs. 2,000 a kilo.

One would think that these accomplishments already make Pawar one of the great leaders of India, but on top of everything, Hiware Bazar is spotlessly clean—all without sweepers; villagers take pride in keeping their home clean, and defecation or urination in public is unheard of. Best of all, now that cleanliness has overtaken the village there is a crucial benefit for the villagers: widespread disease has become a thing of the past.

In addition, to get children to learn the benefits of good governance, Pawar began a children’s parliament giving them specific roles to work under. The “Education Minister” for example, goes from house to house inquiring if the school is functioning well. Even the teachers themselves learn from their students and respect this monitoring to incorporate the childrens’ advice into their work!

But how did Pawar address caste and communal conflicts that often divide society into sparring aggressive groups? It was very simple: he relentlessly stressed that change could not be brought about without communal amity, and his efforts were so beautifully embodied when the village Hindu community built a mosque for the only Muslim family in the village for them to not have to pray in the open.

And how has Hiware Bazar brought a new respect to women in the face of strong gender inequality in India? First of all, Pawar has got the gram panchayat to take care of the education and marriage expenses of the second daughter of any family, but also, out of the seven-member panchayat, three are now women. In addition, Pawar has stepped down from the village headman’s position (remaining as deputy sarpanch) to allow a woman to replace him.

Finally, to bring in holistic change, Pawar is now motivating villagers to adopt family planning. A lot of stress is being put on health and hygiene as it is crucial for the future of the village. In fact, Hiware Bazar is also the first village in India to persuade couples take an HIV test before marriage.

Interestingly, none of Pawar’s suggestions or schemes are opposed as the village has full confidence in him as he goes about trying to better their lives.

Hiware Bazar has shown that stimulating change is easy.  All it requires is good leadership and the political will to empower others in rising to a better future.
