| Poem of the Day|
Today is Yugadi festival, and I've been humming this song...
namage eke bardao?!
ele sanatkumara deva,
ele sahasi chiranjeeva,
ninage leele serado?!!
(Like the flowers,) why didn't you give us a daily birth
and a daily death?
Dying at night and being born in the morning...
O the adventurous Creator!
Aren't you fond of Magic anymore?!
- from Kannada, Song of Yugadi by D.R. Bendre (Portrait)
My greetings to all our friends and readers on the occasion of Yugadi.
It is on the Yugadi day that the temple chariot in Honavar is
brought out of its garage and is constructed for the Car Festival. I wish I was there today!
Links for the Day

Nickels from Amazon
I don't know if you've seen this, but Amazon is giving away nickels for every click. I've earned fifty cents so far!
