Jananee janma bhoomishcha .....

अपि स्वर्ण्मयी लंका न मॆ लक्ष्मण रॊचतॆ ।
जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसि ॥

यदा राम-लक्ष्मणौ लंका नगरीम् प्रविष्यवन्तौ, लक्ष्मणॆन उच्यतॆ यत् वयम् अत्रैव वसामः , ऎतत् नगरी अतीव सुंदरी इति । तत्क्ष्णम् राममुखॆन श्लॊकमिदं उदितम् ॥

In seach of Seeta, Rama with his brother Lakshmana enters Lanka, the beatiful city. Lakshmana seeying that beauty asks his beloved brother whether they can stay there it self.. Rama being maryaadda purushottama, replies him with this famous verse.

Meaning: Hey Lakshmana, evethough Lanka is very cool place to stay, I dont like it as Mother and Mother Lands are more than Heaven ..

Folks.. so do I feel.. 6 months back arrived in the US for project work. Learnt a lot, got many new friends, experienced all the excitement.. but can not stay more.. Mother and Motherland is calling me back .. Flying back to Bangalore starting on 4th .. Very very excited to go back..

ರವಿಯು ಮೂಡುವ ಮೂಡಣದಿ ಏಕೆನ್ನುವುದೆ ಆ ಯೋಚನೆ,
ಉದಯ ರವಿಯಿಂ ಸ್ಪೂರ್ತಿ ತಳೆಯುತ ದಿನವ ಬೆಳಗೋ ಚಿಂತನೆ

ನದೆಯ ಮೂಲವದೆಲ್ಲಿದೆಯೋ ನಾ ತಿಳಿಯಬೇಕದು ಯೋಚನೆ,
ಸಲಿಲ ಸರಿತೆಯ ತಟದಿ ವಿಹರಿಸಿ ದುಗುಡ ಮರೆವುದೇ ಚಿಂತನೆ

ತನ್ನ ಬದಲಿಸೋ ಯತ್ನದಿಂದಲೆ ಪರರ ಮೆಚ್ಚಿಸೋ ಯೋಚನೆ,
ತಾನು ತಾನಾಗಿರಲು ಎಲ್ಲರ ಹೃದಯ ಗೆಲ್ಲುವ ಚಿಂತನೆ

ನೆನ್ನೆ ಮೊನ್ನೆಯ ಗತ ದಿನಾಂಕದ ನೋವಿನಲ್ಲಿದೆ ಯೋಚನೆ,
ನಾಳೆ ದಿವಸದ ಹೊಸ ಭವಿಷ್ಯವ ಮಾಡು ಸುಂದರ ಚಿಂತನೆ

ಬಿಡೆಯ ನೇ ನಿನ ಮನಸಿನೊಳಗಿನ ಅರ್ಥವಿಲ್ಲದ ಯೋಚನೆ,
ಸ್ಫೂರ್ತಿ ತಳೆಯುತ ದುಗುಡ ಮರೆಯುತ ಮಾಡು ಸಾರ್ಥಕ ಚಿಂತನೆ

Driving on Freeway

It was an Unforgettable experience for me to drive for the forst time on US roads. Had been travelled to Dover, New Jersey from my place. It was around 150 mi.

All started when Kannada Audio members decided to meet at Oak Tree Rd, Edison for a Kannada movie called Poorva Para. I decided to hire a car this time, eventhough not driven much here in US. Was quite excited about it. It was a kind of Adventure for me. Here goes my list of preparations:

1. Went to DMV and took drivers manual and read all 12 chapters
2. Called Herts and booked the car
3. MapQuested all the routes and all possible permutation and combinations of return journey. I had plans to goto Phili also.
4. Called all the folks telling my arriving time and my schedule.
5. Took all friends' contact info.
6. Took my laptop, camera and some clothes.......

I was excited when I collected the keys from front desk and I drove a round to acquainted with it. Started from Endicott by 4:30PM towards Dover. When I reached first freeway I80 south I was actually horrified to see the speeds. I was driving at 50.. suddenly I could feel the speed.. everyone was forcing on freeway like anything. For about 5 min I was tensed.. But once I was into it, it was cool. I drove at around 65-70 mph. Its around 100-120 KMPH. Never had drven with such speeds. I could not feel anything. It was very normal. I reached Dover at 7:15PM without any problem..

Happy?? Independence Day

Supposed to me celebrated with great feel of satisfaction, but are we really done with the fight? Yes, politically we are free from invaders like Greeks, Moghals, French, Dutch and English but are we culturally, financially independent ? I dont feel so.

I can not see that ray of Cultural independence in Bhaarat. Still have that strong feel of inferiority complex. Still have that feeling that anything coming from outside is good and we don't have capacity to produce one. Is this because of Lack of confidence? May be ..

Midnight Aug 14, 1947, Bhaarat became independent. But can not forget the fact that we a new and cruel enemy got created on that particular day. How can anyone be so happy on a particular day on which he lost very important piece his belonging. This is an sadest irony for Bhaarat.

Let us hope we get Cultural and Financial independence in very short time period..

Vande Mataram..

Delicacy of Pronunciation

Indian languages are very unique in nature. Pronunciation is one of the key features of them.

I remember one of the Samskrita Shloka regarding the pronunciation of words..

व्याघ्री यथा हरॆत् पुंसान् दंष्ट्राभाम् न च पीडयॆत् ।
भीता पतन भॆदाभायाम् तद्वद्वर्णान् प्रयॊजयॆत् ॥

Meaning: Cat carees kittens by jaws. It should make sure of two things.
  1. that kitty is not hurt by its sharp jaws
  2. that it tightly grips kitty under her jaws so that kitty does not fall down

Author of this verse conveys that even pronunciation of words/letters should be taken care with such delicacy ..
