The Evil Eye

Many times, I have been asked, what to do if someone has cast an “evil eye” on me. Kissi ki nazar lage toh kya karna chahiye. The first thing to do is to not bother about it. Gurudev had once said, this is all simply on the periphery and will just vanish in no time. […]

This and That

Anshika was one of the first followers of my blog. She started following whatever I had written since she had been 14. I had run a few contests on the blog many years ago and she had managed to win a dinner with me! 🙂 It never happened and this time while in Delhi, I […]

A Quick Note on Grace

Q. How do Grace and Seva make things work? Shouldn’t commitment and hard work also be taken into account? I am a big believer of commitment and perseverance. For example, if I have done a lot of Seva, which is supposed to make Grace flow in my life but if I do not study much, […]

Interstellar

I don’t like Chris Nolan’s movies. There, I have said that out, however blasphemous it may sound to many, many people reading this. I didn’t like the Batman series – too dark and dismal for me and I felt that Superman was made into an unnecessarily psychotic, depressed and slightly confused person – Hardly the […]

Thoughts on Vertebrae

I have been taking CST for years and it has made a huge difference to me. Right from the time I had my back issues to in the last few years, when my health had been a little delicate, the CST touch always used to rejuvenate me and make me feel great. Sri Sri University […]
