Just sharing my first post on this site posted two years back.
“Don’t know how to begin… A sad day for India… 30th January Martyrs Day here in India… The day the Mahatma was killed in cold blood… Cannot support the thought of killing him… My ‘namaskaar’ to the ultimate sacrifice…
At the same time, do think that what would have happened if the Mahatma had lived? Am confident that he would have done some constructive work in India… Revered Pandurang Shastriji Athavale (founder of Swadhyay movement) believes so…
Villages and cottage industry are/were the hub of economics in just liberated India. That was overlooked in the race of technological revolution. The 5 year plans were a complete hogwash to misguide us, Indians. From the day of independence, successive governments talk of development and technology, but do they care for Humanity? The cradle of Humanity, the Indian civilisation, is lost in all this…
So on this day, remembering and saluting all who in their own small way tried to contribute to Humanism. Maybe this is the only way to remember the Mahatma…
During this journey of two years, am happy that I could write down my thoughts in the form of blogs and express myself clearly.
Am a God centric person, my “namaskaars” first to Him, who takes care of me and gives me ideas to write.
I am deeply grateful to all those who follow me here and also those who read my blogs, comment and give constructive suggestions too.
Am also deeply grateful to my parents, especially my mother who inculcated a habit of reading, which has opened up my mind and help me think.
Also grateful to Param Pujaniya Pandurang Shashtriji as He has moulded my thoughts very carefully on the right path.
At the same time, His daughter, Param Pujaniya Dhanshree Athavale- Talwalkar for shaping up those thoughts and helping me express myself.
At last cannot forget my wife and kids who have given a constant support to my reading and also have been bearing my late night reading lights which have disturbed their sleep.
Have written 79 blogs till date (this being my 80th) and hope to write many more in the future. I share a wish with you all, that some day I would love to see these blogs in a shape of a book. A book which might be helpful for the coming generation to understand the importance about the country and the festivals celebrated across the country. Still have many more to describe.
I once again thank you all and especially Word Press for providing me a platform to express myself.
Have a nice day!
