It is customary to first introduce oneself. I do not know how to it. Yet a few words. I am an ordinary citizen of the Republic India at work. I am one of those who gaze at the stars even when deeply mired in mud. I would say no more than what a Hindi poet said:
क्या राह में परिचय करूँ, राही हमारा नाम है
चलना हमारा काम है
[What should on our way I tell you about myself? I am just a wayfarer on my way.]
We would interact on this blog; and we would know each other through our words. I invite you to my exclusive bower. Whatever I write, I would do so with all good faith, and candour. Feel free to comment on the ideas I would express. We all are weighed by our Destiny. I do not have any agenda to promote.
I must express my love and gratefulness for my wife who is the first to enter my bower to stimulate me to some thoughts. She enters with her earthen lamp in her hands reminding us of the Buddha’s instructions to all of us: “Appa Dipo bhabha” (be thou thy own lamp).
I would tell you about myself in my Autobiographical Memoir (in the press).
तमसो माँ ज्योतिर्गमय
