You have a formula !!


“The coconut shell is symbolic of the human body”-It should be as strong as the shell!

“The white coconut is symbolic of the Human M ind” It should be as white as the white coconut!

“The sweet water is symbolic of the Human Heart” It should be as sweet as the water !

– SRI SRI RAVISHANKAR

in his Q&A session at Pollachi ,Tamilnadu, India

Note: coconut is offered for worship in Hindu temples

Yoga Guru Ramdev on a mission to cleanse politics!



Besides, in every country, the means is the same after all, that is, whatever only a handful of powerful men dictate becomes the fait accompli; the rest of the men only follow like a flock of sheep, that’s all. I have seen your Parliament, your Senate, your vote, majority, ballot; it is the same thing everywhere, my friend. The powerful men in every country are moving society whatever way they like, and the rest are only like a flock of sheep. Now the question is this, who are these men of power in India?—they who are giants in religion. It is they who lead our society; and it is they again who change our social laws and usages when necessity demands: and we listen to them silently anti do what they command. The only difference with ours is, that we have not that superfluous fuss and bustle of the majority, the vote, ballot, and similar concomitant tugs-of-war as in other countries. That is all

Yesterday was Maestro Ilaiyaraja’s birthday (6/3/2011) this post and the song is dedicated to him!

(Lyrics taken from the internet and translation done by me)

This song sequence

The lady dancer dances well in the initial stages as per the raga or composition of Ragavendra but due to her arrogance and ignorance about the qualities of Ragavendra, she stumbles and unable to dance as per the composition and  admits her limitations.  This Tamil language movie came in the year 1986.  Maestro Ilayaraja was the musician for this hit song !!
