Mahant- literally means Maha anant or supreme bliss ,mahaan atma or great soul who enjoys supreme bliss..

After what seems like aeons, have heard of somebody who has done something more than pay cursory lip service to deserve this title.

He has single handedly, merely by the force of his presence and weight of his words averted what could have been a major crisis in Varanasi.

Not just that.

His stand and averments made renowned lyricist poet Javed Akhtar (husband of actress Shabana Azmi) exclaim “I want to touch his feet!”

After reading the report, one is compelled to boldly assert

Don’t quite know what that means? Its not some mumbo jumbo but IMHO a really thought provoking terminology, coined I daresay for the youth , by the youth.

Simply put, it is the period between ages 21-29, when yougsters are reacting to the bombardment of information of newer choices and are enjoying the ‘thinking out of the box ‘ syndrome. (more…)

Clicked on links and found this from Candides Notebook..


Moments such as these, which arrive so unexpectedly in the life 😦 of a blogger, help to brighten it^**^up, apart from the fact that one can always present this with a flourish to hubby every time he cribs “What is there to gain from all of just dont care for me anymore…free time is comp time..lets go to the movies..look what the papers have to say of the causes depression.. give it up..”

Women ‘get blame for being raped’
Distressed woman
Fewer than 6% of reported rapes result in a conviction
A third of people believe a woman is partially or completely responsible for being raped if she has behaved flirtatiously, a survey suggests.)
The Amnesty International poll of 1,000 people also found over 25% believe she is at least partly to blame if she has worn revealing clothing or been drunk.

Amnesty says the “shocking” findings show government policies are failing.
And the director of public prosecutions told the BBC the report “highlights some areas of real concern”.
