Art of Living Foundation and us

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. He isn't a guru who conjures golden rings from nowhere; he isn't a guru who calls himself the avatar of god. He just seems to preach the very fundamental stuff that most of us are familiar with.

Cynic, are we?

Here's some interesting set of observations (or I choose to call it that way) which probably has some truth attached to it. Looks like we often fail to see these and let ourselves sail away with time, embracing things as they come our way.

Couldn't resist pointing to this very well shaped write up that discusses the gruesome situation that seems mere possibilty, but embraces someone somewhere and the horror is known to only those who've been through it, and what compels them to move to what might probably become an hasty decision that takes their life. I would've pointed to this from my link blog rather, but this one with all its comments is too good to read & deserved to be mentioned here. Click on! UPDATE: sham's epilogue to the same in Kannada.

Me and pramod were coming back from Majestic this evening after some small purchase we made there... when this unfortunate thing happened. I was moving straight ahead with my bike near hudson circle. Somehow, I was indecisive of the direction in which I was supposed to turn, and I slowed down to take a right turn. This guy from nowhere with his son on the back hits the back of my bike, falls down and this was enough for the traffic mamu standing there to call us aside.

Dirty Politics

ramlalla, in his blog 'Contradiction', writes... " But just a few months of power has corrupted the Congress' political vision. As an observer, and admirer, of political manouvering irrespective of party, I just cannot fathom the logic of the Congress' hounding Uma Bharati. " I think almost everyone might be thinking the same... after all, is hoisting a flag in some disputed idgah such a big crime? Whats Congress doing with power in its hands? Dirty Politics, for sure!
