Be Patient

It is hard to ignore some things in life. It feels things are unfair. May be that's not how we should look at life. Work hard and forget the rewards. Be proud and happy in your effort - easier said than done! That's got to be the goal. Lets go!

This is their defence

Was reading the legal discussion on the issue of triple talaq - the defense put out by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is amazing
"Granting a husband the right to divorce indirectly provides security to the wife. Marriage is a contract in which both parties are not physically equal. Male is stronger and female weaker sex. Man is not dependent on woman for his protection. On the contrary, she needs him for her defence," said the affidavit, adding that triple talaq wards off the possibility of a rise in murders of women whose husbands want to divorce them.
So the act of treating women unequally is valid because Muslim men will resort to even worse things? Seriously? I mean come on!

Omkar

A new addition to our family - Omkar S Eluru. 

I was always fascinated by the word "Om". From Wikipedia - The Brahmana layer of Vedic texts equate Om with Bhur-bhuvah-Svah, the latter symbolizing "the whole Veda". They offer various shades of meaning to Om, such as it being "the universe beyond the sun", or that which is "mysterious and inexhaustible", or "the infinite language, the infinite knowledge", or "essence of breath, life, everything that exists", or that "with which one is liberated".

In addition to the meaning, the use of the word in two of my favorite songs - Omkaru nadana sandanamai from Sankarabharanam [see here] and vidhata talapuna from sirivennella [see here] were instrumental in my choice. I look forward to listening to these songs with my son in due course. To be sure, I am no expert on music - but these songs were some of finest music i could appreciate and they have been songs i go back to listen to soothe myself. 

With this new addition, our lives will never be the same again in a good way. I am looking forward to this new phase of life.
