The Parallel Lines

Seldom comes a soul who lives for others! Mahatria Ra's unique method of blending spiritual seeking with materialistic ambition is changing the way spirituality is experienced. He is uniting a world that has been divided in the name of God and religion, through ‘Faith’ and ‘Love’. Endowed with a deep connectivity to existence and enormous spiritual strength, He...

Cambridge

Cambridge ! A city where the unknown manifests into the known; where visions become reality; aspirations strive for perfection & the divine intervenes for realisation... The birthplace of many a revolutionary thought backed by concrete action that has impacted the whole of humanity... Considered one of the most academically selective institutions, Cambridge is ranked the...

Not for Sale!

Swami Vivekananda is world renowned for having represented the Hindu faith in the Parliament of religions in 1893. His address at Chicago is considered the turning point of modern understanding of the Sanatana Dharma. His exposition and representation from there on revolutionised the outlook of the world to Indian thought and ethos. To briefly highlight,...

The Inception

One of my all time most favourite movies is Inception. Hats off to Christopher Nolan for presenting such an abstract concept with such creative ingenuity and precision. Every one plants thoughts into the others. When a Shakuni influences a Duryodhana or a Mandira instigates a Kaikeyi, while the implant is deliberate by the perpetrator, it...

You were just an idea…

You were just an idea - not even mine An idea enshrined by a million hues... You then became a desire - now born in me A desire that grew from dream to real You became my search - a very deep longing A craving that brought tears every day You soon became an aspiration...

The Beacon Beckons…

‘Come let’s dance’, He gathers me in His arms Higher, Deeper, He carries me Beyond Smiling wider than the skies, tears deeper than the ocean, Spring in every step, twinkle in every breath, in every cell I dance ‘Take the spot light, let others applaud’ – He benevolently calls ‘It’s too Sacred, too Divine’ –...

The Magic Ingredient

'Every body seems to have an opinion on what I must be doing - except me!' said the young girl. She was good in Math as compared to Social and Physical Sciences. So she had opted for the 'Commerce' group in school. One thing led to another, she had to choose what to study at...

The crystallisation of a CULTure

When a group of individuals have a common view of life, adhere to a common set of values and choose a common standard of behaviour, it is said to be a culture. Even if one of these parameters are missing, it ceases to be a culture. For instance an organisation’s culture is based on the...

In just a day…

As a child I would accompany my parents on their shooting trips every opportunity I got. We would travel by bullock carts in a remote hot village one day only to fly off in first class the next to the most exotic place; enjoy breakfast at a roadside cart with our crew and experience dinner...

My Krishna

I was nine years old. I saw my dad sitting at our ancestral desk writing a letter. Curiously I peeped over his shoulder to ask ‘who are writing this to?’ My dad replied ‘To your Paddu athai’. I was curious. She lived just a few streets away and we were going to meet her and...

Through Loving You…

A sea of beautiful big eyes looked into mine. They were all eager and waiting to hear what I had to say and also to share a trillion thoughts running in their minds. I was sitting amidst 1st year college students - girls all on the brink of adulthood, in their last teen year. And...

Is everything OK?

That is one statement that sends shivers down my spine. You see it almost always is from people who don’t want it to be ok for, those who care know and don’t need to ask! Playing God is something we all would love to do. Given the slightest opportunity, we will want to don that...
