molting process

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

If we consider a snake, over time, it gets a new skin, and its old skin dies. Its not easy for the snake to get rid of the old skin. It has to wriggle through rocks and narrow spaces and put in considerable effort to get rid of the old skin. Its quite uncomfortable – […]

obituary of Sanjay

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Bangalore — Sanjay Mysoremutt, 36, died Thursday, June 2, 2011 at Bangalore. He leaves among others, his almost 4 year old jovial son, his affectionate wife, his caring mother and sister, family around the globe and many wonderful friends.

luck at home

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Yesterday evening’s rain was phenomenal – they were the strongest winds I’d ever seen. From our 10th floor the view of the neighbouring building looked like a waterfall, with water flowing horizontally, it was an amazing sight! I had closed our window because the water usually comes in through it, but I had not known […]

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Prashanth’s photoblog Payaniga is usually pretty good and I’ve often used the monthly calendar wallpapers that he shares. But this particular picture simply left me breathless… 8) UG‘s quote comes to mind… If you have the courage to touch life for the first time, you will never know what hit you. Everything man has thought, […]

quotes by Douglas Adams

I watched the gorilla’s eyes again, wise and knowing eyes, and wondered about this business of trying to teach apes language. Our language. Why? There are many members of our own species who live in and with the forest and know it and understand it. We don’t listen to them. What is there to suggest […]

love is blind?

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

Well known saying that “Love is blind” Today I came across a quote so uplifting that it simply took my breath away… Though I felt I should avoid writing about meditation any more as I’m too much of an irregular novice, I could not help sharing this quote here 🙂 (More about it the reader […]

open the door to new possibilities!

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

Many times I find it quite hard to get out of a cocoon of what is well-known, and look at something new. I want to cling tightly to whatever I know as safety and security, without ever wanting to LET GO!! 😈 I hope this photo serves as a reminder that only a very few […]

how to be a good listener?

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

With one of my friends, sometimes after we’ve had a good conversation, I feel that my heart feels so light and unburdened. In fact some conversations are so absoulutely fulfilling that I become so happy at the end of it, irrespective of any outcome (or lack of it) of the conversation! How come this happens? […]

"all I know is that I know nothing"

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Socrates had said that, and that’s probably the only one thing I for sure about myself as well, and least of all I want to have any intellectual knowledge about God. Its always been hard to explain to anyone why I avoid using the word ‘God’ or saying anything even remotely religious or abstract as […]
