My mother-in-law, an epitome of love and compassion

Those were the early days of my transfer from Goa to Mysore, after serving in different stations like Shillong, Lucknow, Vijayawada and Goa. I loved Mysore pleasantly because of its natural charm and beauty…. the fragrance of the jasmines, magnificence of the palaces, broad and wide avenues, lip savouring snacks and many more attractions fascinated me. More than anything, my relatives were living closer i.e., in Bangalore, which was only 150 kms away. We had

Woman- A Source of Strength (Shakti)

The woman in ancient India was an epitome of strength and was worshiped as the Goddess. The trend of worshiping the Goddess is still there but in modern India,  the scenario seems to have entirely changed to a different one, where a woman is regarded as a second-grade citizen. Gender discrimination, gang rapes on little girls and women of every age, acid attacks and other kinds of violence against women are perpetrated in every city

When Spiritualism Goes Glitzy And Glamorous…

By C T Joshi, Senior Journalist, Bengaluru  A publicity-crazy religious-spiritual leader recently appeared as a half-clad wrestler in a  wrestling pose in a TV advertisement. It was cheap and laughable, undignified and unbecoming of his position in society. There is a yoga-cum-ayurveda  expert. Once he had roped in dignitary after dignitary to speak highly of him day after day through the “idiot box”. That is to advertise him day after day. If his work was solid,

By Jayanth Ramanujam I had seen this book a couple of times, both at the airport, while I was waiting to board my flight. On both these occasions, I had just glanced cursively through the blurb and kept it back in its place. Main reason for doing so was the context of the book was not that appealing.

Monumental structures, majestic highways, massive irrigation and power generation water spots provide testimony to the hard work of civil engineers. Even the topmost earner in the
