 Keeping it together

When the blues hit, And the smiles are almost true. The tiniest crack appears,  revealing the storm within.  But I still sail through… The dawn is drawing close, The dusk threatens to be gnawing… The night holds the demon Can we skip this one time… Skip it this time, utters a blur So I lock those lids soaking the warmth of the sun. With eyes wide shut, and the seeping daylight, My demons that hunt,

Be the Same or Change

Be the Same or Change

It feels I have crossed ages when I don’t write. You know every single day we live; we have something new to dream about, something new to chase, something new to create, something that keeps us alive. I encountered myself thinking too much about everything these days. From issues big or small, I have been redefining the ways I deal with them. For an instance, I just began to think why should I write frequently.

Dwelling with Soligas

Lifting up the poverty stricken Soligas (a tribal community), and merging them with the better economy of the mainstream. This was a mission often pursued by Varaaha. He had many stints dwelling with them to educate them according to the demand of that time. Go through his own narration (with even the relevant graphic created by him), on how he resolved a problem affecting two families, during one of his stays at B R Hills,

Do I do this?

Do I do this?

It was a lazy Sunday morning. I was trying to open my eyes, but my eyelids were too heavy for me to lift in one go. Taking the advantage of my heavy eyelids, I stayed in the bed for some more time. In next few moments, I felt the rapid vibrations of my cell phone. I suddenly felt the keenness in my eyelids. With all the energy, they stood up and my hand went straight

Varaaha on untouchability

In most part of his life, Varaaha went on discouraging the treatment meted out to people of the lower caste. Here is how he explains an instance on the topic, to which he himself was a witness. Straight forward narration, without addition of any flowery word here or there, was his speciality. Hope we will have a positive imagination in us, by looking at the down to earth graphic he scribbled to support the script: One day

Many Religions One India

Many Religions One India

Witten by: Deepthi Musley Unity in diversity, All for one & One for all, United we stand divided we fall. A country of the people, by the people, & for the people at the heart of nationality is yet to identify itself with the true meaning of freedom even after seventy years of independence. Our motherland has never isolated her children as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jains, etc., & neither did she cut & offer

How to get a nett positive balance in your relationship’s saving account?

How to get a nett positive balance in your relationship’s saving account?

Weird? Is it? What do I mean? Whenever we mention the word relationship, it triggers a positive vibe in the brain. The very genesis of the word is “relation” is optimistic and therefore at the drop of this word, we all scout for names that we either have positive relations with or want to have positive relations with!!! But there also is an unknown dimension to it. Relations that are destined to happen.  Relations where

Peace with Mother, is the Foundation of Peace with All

Peace with Mother, is the Foundation of Peace with All

Mother’s love is Peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved – Erich Fromm On my last article, I have written about being at peace with own self, which is the basis of bringing peace in any relationship. So here I am talking about a relationship which begins at the very beginning. The relationship that we share with our mothers. We are connected to our mothers before we know our self, even

Humanity First

These are times when India is facing a bit more number of threats to its sovereignty than we’re probably used to. At least as far as my knowledge goes, I haven’t seen the media report Chinese and Pakistani incursions or any other threats from these countries at the same time. Also, the internal security challenges aren’t on the decline either. It’s as though we’re disintegrating, we’re recognizing our differences but these external threats are keeping us somehow weakly glued. I recently read in an article the divide between Hindus and Muslims, North Indians and South Indians and between other social groups is increasing. The ‘Unity in Diversity’ has been remained to a bookish phrase. Is this a problem? I say yes. Is there a solution? Yes, but trying to forget our differences and suddenly unite won’t help. It will never even happen. If the branches start to dry up, perhaps the roots need to be diagnosed.

Take control of your emotions before they take control of you

Take control of your emotions before they take control of you

In one of my corporate assignments, my boss had this habit of not receiving my calls when I most needed to talk to him, whether it was for some approval, some advice or some help. After a few more unanswered calls and messages, I used to feel crestfallen. You name every disruptive emotion and they had taken their high seat in my being. Rejection, dejection, frustration – it was all there. These feelings would totally

We miss Varaaha

Past writers didn’t have the opportunity to what’sapp or blog, like we do. What came to light is only a small percentage of their achievement. Keeping this in mind, I’ve decided to begin by introducing the creations of handcraftist-cum-author-cum-cartoonist T R Varaaha Murthy.   We witness many Varaaha inspired writers and cartoonists in Karnataka. There is no scarcity of folk art followers, who often used to sing and dance with Varaaha. Followers preserve Varaaha sculptures

Foggy Marathon

Foggy Marathon

Marathon, 15 Kms, as big it may sound, it gets bigger and harder once you say it is. My experience of marathons has always been overwhelming I would say.I could hardly run 100 m initially. I always counted myself one amongst as those on the other side of the fence who say , ‘WOW’ , ‘GREAT’ how were you able to do it. Never realizing the fact that I too could do it. The only
