Saying YES to learning Sanskrit

I have different dreams which i wish to materialize in this life.One such dream was to learn sanskrit to read ancient texts such as vedas,upanishads, puranas in their original form.This idea was lying dormant in me for years.In April 2013 i heard from Mr. Madhu , a psychology counsellor about a ten day sankrit speaking camp at Vettikode about 5 kms from my village.Immediately i said yes.........

The ten day camp went well and it ended on 26.04.2013. It was very difficult for me to attend considering my time constraints running Orangis Online.However i had a resolve to do it. The program was conducted by Vishwa Samskritha Prathistan or Samskrithabharathi which is a non profit organisation working to spread sanskrit. There is no FEE for 10 day [20 hour] Samskritha Sambhashana Shibiram (Sanskrit Conversational Workshop).The teacher is taking the class free of cost. Only the organisers need to arrange interested students and a place for the class to happen.After the class i felt so happy…

Cutting Rubber Trees Using Chainsaw for Firewood

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has asked every villager to use firewood instead of LPG cylinders for cooking food.He vowed to remove subsidy given to 6 gas cylinders per year to a household.So i obliged him by obeying his advice and uprooted 5 rubber trees near my house. I hired a contractor to do it for Rs 4000.The guys were experienced folks. Four of the trees were standing between two walls.I did not wanted the walls to be destroyed.

However the activity took so much time because of the risk in the four trees to the walls. One of the wall was a two feet high wall to seperate the pathway to the house. Other side was the boundary wall.Still the small wall got damaged. But they repaired it by putting the broken part back to the wall and applying cement grout as glue.

Wonderland

a fool's futile attempt to make a poem.

Wonderland do you exist?
If you do exist, get me out to there
because i want to know how it feels
Passengers have went.
But no one is back.
Are you a dead space or a feeling i get when i peel my skin off.
It is a legend that you ride on a horse
that is dark coloured and with red eyes.
Are you a villian or just a daredevil?
Are you a she or an ET?
Questions?Questions?Questions?More Questions?
Somebody told wonderland is a lie
to make men & women focus....
another neverland!
