MY (ONLY) NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

We saw the frail old lady standing noontime in the hot Vizag summer, holding a cheap plastic bag in her left hand. Her hands looked more like dried twigs and grinding poverty was written all over her thin frame. Seeing us approaching slowly in the car, she waved the plastic bag at us with a tired smile on her face.
My wife looked at me and smiled in quiet assent as I stopped the car near the poor woman. We knew that the cheap plastic bag would be holding the season’s offering called ‘Tati Pandu’ meaning palm fruit in Telugu, a simple fruit full of watery juice for thirsty throats. Though quite a few passersby would stop for this cheap fruit, most others preferred the colas and other drinks to this rustic delight. Sadly, even many among those who paused to buy would bargain away any measly profit these miserable sun- burnt folks hoped to get after several hours in the merciless heat.
After we gave the amount quoted by the astonished woman for the full bag…

BHARATA, THE EXEMPLARY BROTHER OF SRI RAMA.

Seldom have we seen or read about a brother from a Royal family who was so sincere and devoted to his brother or sister like Bharata was to Sri Rama. Bharata was in fact, a half brother, being son of Kaikeyi, one of King Dasaratha’s three wives.
As we all probably know, Bharata was, against his will, forced to become the King of Ayodhya instead of the eldest son of King Dasaratha. The latter was sadly tricked into this by the cunning manipulations of Kaikeyi, with the help of her wicked lady attendant, Manthara.
Bharata, unlike most other such Royal brothers in history, didn’t jump and grab the opportunity. He was thoroughly unhappy about this deceit of his mother and even threatened to assault her, though she was doing it for his ascension to the throne!
That’s why Bharata should be considered as the noblest and most exemplary brother ever.
In fact, Bharata ,in consultation with the wise sages like Vasishta, decided to go to the forest where Rama, Sita and Lakshman had gone for thei…
BHATTATHIRIPAD AND POONDHANAM

There is a very touching story about the great Sanskrit Scholar Sri Bhattathiripad who wrote the poetic 'Narayaneeyam' in praise of Lord Krishna.
Narayaneeyam is a poetic narration by Bhattathiripad about the omnipotent Lord Narayana and his ten ‘avatars’ or births on Earth ,including as Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. The poem is deeply devotional in nature as it dwells on the Divine Glories in all its verses.
Earlier Bhattathiripad had been afflicted by very painful arthritis. When he started composing the epic Narayaneeyam at the famed Kerala Guruvayoor temple of Krishna, the pains are said to have vanished miraculously, due to the Blesings of Lord Krishna, the presiding deity of Guruvayoor temple.
However this success unfortunately made him a bit proud of his achievement. When another poet, a humble person named Poondhanam approached him timidly to have a look at the latter’s work called ' Jnanapaana' ( Which too later became an epic poem…
