Amma (back from her pilgrimage to the Himalayas, via telephone): "I consider fortunate to have met such towering personalities like Mukta Venkatesh, R.K. Narayan, and Chaduranga. They have enriched my life so much!"
While I don't think of it often, I have been truly priviledged to meet many great men and women. The voluntary organization RSS, where I was a cadet during the 70s, was full of men of great personal character and descipline. Being born to academic and intellectual parents meant that I frequently came in contact with writers, poets, scholars, and artists. Most of my father's customers in his Scientific Photo Lab had PhD.s, and were devoted servants of science.
People inspire others not just from their knowledge or attitudes, but also from intrinsic human qualities, like courage. My father, for instance, was greatly inspired by the misery of life. The way poor folks fight through life's harsh realities excited and inspired him, and that inspiration can be seen in much of his works.
