A Great Guru Remembered
Meanwhile, Amma has a tribute for Prof. Dikshit.
In the Indian culture, a mentor (guru) is awarded the status of a supreme deity. In modern times, it is rare to come across the sacred bondage that is glorified in Indian culture between a guru and a disciple, but it does happen -- read Gadiyaram Ramakrishna Sharma's account for instance.
Prof. Diskhit was a guru to my entire family. A true well-wisher. Like a song I have been listening today:
Guru is the Supreme Maharaja
His bounties endless
His generosity, boundless
He is the all giving Kalpataru
Especially the gift of Liberation (mukti), given by my guru.
Separation of Blog and Business
Not that it matters, the President of GoDaddy is a "right wing nut job" (via TriNetre). The mistake he did though, was that he linked his company's site to his personal blog and infuriated many customers.
Aaman Lamba of Self Audit book tagged me the other day. I've never done one of these memes, and probably won't start now.
However, I think the type of books one possesses or reads tells a lot about a person, so here it goes:
Total Number of Books: (estimated) 7000 -- Of course this includes my inherited collections which have already been donated to Kamat Memorial Library being built to honor my dad.
The Last Book I Bought: Kannada to English Dictionary compiled by L.S. Sheshagiri Rao
Last Book I Read (currently reading): Daatu by S.L. Bhyrappa, The Life of Pie by Yann Martel, and Tamilu Talegala Naduve by B.G.L. Swamy
Read about my all time favorite books
