This Women’s Day – Musings Of An Old Fool

First and foremost I would like to put a disclaimer that I am old and some of my views sound outdated but before you throw them out of the window I would like to make my point. It's Women’s Day! At office we welcomed all the ladies with chocolates and roses. On such a day... Continue Reading →

Vihar in Rural India

Spirituality has been a part of my existence and as I grow older I’ve had the inclination to delve into it more. Vihar has always fascinated me. Our Jain Monks are allowed to stay at one place only during the monsoon months. The rest of the eight months they must travel by foot, from place... Continue Reading →

My Tryst with Covid

The third wave has finally ensnared me. My wife got it first and a few days later I showed the same symptoms. The gen in the market is that this wave is milder yet virulent. I wonder what the delta variant must have been like if this knocked me off my feet. The body pain... Continue Reading →

The Importance of Sight

We have organised over a dozen Medical Camps, in Kalandri, over the last decade. Of these 14 medical camps, 11 have been for eyesight, with 700 successful cataract operations. It is my personal experience and I may be wrong, but sight seems to be the most important sense to a person. Especially once you become... Continue Reading →

Kashmir – God’s Own Canvas

If Kerala, the south western strip of India is called God’s Own Country then Kashmir the northern most part of India surely deserves to be called God’s Own Canvas. God has definitely put in immense time and effort in her strokes. Now, I've done some fair bit of travelling across the world to very discerningly... Continue Reading →

PALITANA – A Beautiful State of Mind

Dawn was just breaking as I started my climb at 5.45 up the 3700 steps to the Jain Temple at Palitana, nestled on top of a hill. There was not a soul visible in sight, which is so uncanny given that it was the day after ‘Samvatsari’ which is the day of forgiveness. The peace,... Continue Reading →

2024 Olympics – Climbing Up The Ladder

Zeus and Hercules must be sitting up there and having a great laugh. The two Greek Gods in whose honor The Olympic Games began in the 8th  century BC, would be holding on to their sides, rolling on the floor, laughing. The ultimate test of sports endurance and what a massive imbalance. Two Asian countries,... Continue Reading →

Glorious 60 (Part 2 – Coming of Age)

At a juncture when I was about to start my Masters in Physics my father suggested I move to Bangalore to start another office. I just jumped at the opportunity without thinking twice. Studies, shudies!! who wanted to get into that. Bangalore meant FREEDOM! Yes it also meant work, but after work I had complete... Continue Reading →

Glorious 60 (Part 1 – The Age of Innocence)

It’s been 60 years, some glorious and some not so glorious, but they have been my 60 years, full of experience, which I treasure and make me what I am today. Why is reaching 60 considered such a landmark? Apparently it marks completion of half the years of one's lifetime. 120 years is considered the... Continue Reading →

India is in Her Villages

Kalandri to me evokes a sense of peace and tranquility. A tiny little village set in rural India, it is in Rajasthan’s Sirohi District, around 150km from Udaipur. Even though I was born and brought up in Adoni, Andhra Pradesh, my forefathers came from Kalandri, Rajasthan. It's like Adoni is my Karma Bhoomi and Kalhandri... Continue Reading →
