happy earth day


Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam”, translated from Sanskrit will mean “this entire earth is my family.” This is what the sages felt and lived centuries back. And not just the sages, even the ordinary man loved and respected Nature. The sun. the moon, the earth were all gods. Sounds primitive, no? But think of it. The concept is definitely wiser now that we stand on the brink of losing our earth forever if we do not wake up . Let’s not take this precious gift to us as granted. This is the womb from where our bodies came, this is the mother who nurtures us,................bearing our weight as we walk over its bosom unmindfully..........forgiving us, ............and the ultimate rest place when we no shall no longer be in our bodies.
Think at least once before switching on your ACs, using detergent powders,cutting off trees,tearing off papers insanely…………..and well you know the list is so long.
Let us come together. We indeed are one family.
Let us join hands for this beautiful earth – our home.
A VERY HAPPY EARTH DAY TO ALL OF YOU, and this comes a day before in advance.

I think if we could actually see what we leave behind as consumers. We would be shocked. We live in a disposable age with no regard for the environment around us.

jodha akbar - a true love story

Thirteen years back I had seen Allahabad Fort built by Emperor Akbar in 1583 A.D which stands erect even today except in those places probably the zenana which are very near to Yamuna where it has sunken in. This is the area which Akbar had designed especially for his wife Jodha. The windows of the side where this rajput princess often stayed face Yamuna, a river worshipped especially by people who worship Krishna. The architecture was in such a way that that the river used to flow inside the fort touching the walls of her palace so that she did not have to go out but could bathe right in the river staying in her palace named as Jodhabai Palace. When I saw it for the first time I was very young then… my mind full of romances waiting to be lived…it had brought a smile to my face… I thought that’s the way it is between every man and woman on this earth. Life teaches otherwise. To fall in love is easy…to be in love for a lifetime is more often a dream.

It was a thinking out of box when As…

amrita - imroz a gospel of love

This is me and that is you and in the chasm is the dream
wrote a woman once of her relationship with the man she loved and lived with. Some love stories reverberate like hymns in this universe. Love is a spiritual force in itself since it is a part of the inner world. In terms of events it happens between two people in a particular time and space but its fragrance spreads across time and space both.
Amrita-imroz A love Story is a contemporary love legend which Penguin India brought to the world. It is best described not as a story of a woman or a man but a biography of a love story penned by Uma Trilok who was fortunate enough to spend some precious moments with the lovers just before Amrita left her body on October 31, 2005 at the age of 86. Being a Reiki and Pranik healer, the writer formed close ties with Amrita and Imroz and what came out is a book which is so soothing that it takes you to yourself.
Love is a word which carries a halo around itself when used as a word. Ironically in…

who needs to be liberated?

Everyday I read that women need to be liberated. One question often comes to my mind: from what? What is it that a woman needs to be liberated from?
Equality is a definite yes-yes but at what cost?
In order to be equal to men why must a woman behave like a man, eat, dress act even abuse like a man? That’s selling the essence of a woman too short.
And does It not say that we are no good; we were born lesser so we shall become like you.
To fight against men women today are emulating them . Aggressive. Assertive. And in turn lose their femininity, grace, poise, beauty.
But who said that we need to fight against men in order to be equal? And who needs to be equal? To whom and why?
And what does a woman needs to be liberated from? Nothing at all. She just needs to be herself.
It is men who need to be liberated.
Liberated from the way they see women.
Liberated from the task of assigning roles for women.
Liberated from the way they put their own expectations on her of a demi-goddess.
Liberated from the…
