Pictures from Udupi hpn March 7, 2009 - 11:28
Some photos from the December archive. I had visited Udupi to meet a friend and to take some photos of the well known Udupi Mutts. Looking back into the archive, I've got some really nice shots :-) Here are few from those: Lakshmi Narasimha This was the top of a building right after exiting from Krishna Mutt. Liked this shot very much. Geeta Mandira Geeta Mandira.
More noise than news on National News Channels hpn April 12, 2007 - 11:05

I'm no great fan of the Art of Living Foundation. I'm not a follower of RaviShankar, as well. But the good thing about the personality is that he isn't like the other bunch of gurus of India.

How about some of those very much hunted old texts in Sanskrit? How is it when you get it in your own language? ;) Here's that pandora's box. It has Bhagavadhgita, Meghadhutam, NyaayasUtra, Rigveda-Pratishakhya, Tarka Sangraha in Kannada, Sanskrit, Gujarati and Telugu; Adding to those, there are Ashtaadhyaayi, Apishaala shiksha, Taittiriya-Pratishakhya. Lets bow to whoever has done this nice work! :) Also, found hanuman Chalisa re-written in Kannada script today... Get it here.
