Marikamba Goddess
The temple of goddess Marikamba in the town of Sirsi is a splendid example of syncretic evolution of tribal and so called brahminical customs and rituals, befitting Hindu ethos.

How I wrote 'Gita-Rahasya'
Lokamanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak writes that "Gita does not preach renunciation". He says Gita preaches action, and asks everyone to study Gita for its philosophical beauty.
