What do you live for?

by host4kfn

I’m sure all of you have faced this question at least once in your life time, perhaps during childhood or teenage, someone asking you, “What’s your ambition in life?” It doesn’t matter what you answered then, it is a question worth pondering over any day of your life. What do you live for? The sad […]

A Call to Go Beyond Bhakti…

by host4kfn

It is a well known fact that Hinduism recognises three paths to moksha, namely, the Karma marga, the Jnana marga and the Bhakti marga. Which path a person chooses is purely a matter of one’s preference. Interestingly, even though all the three margas are considered valid paths to salvation, most Hindus follow the Bhakti way. […]

An Irony on Easter Morning!

by host4kfn

A careful reader of the Bible cannot miss the Easter Morning Irony. Take a look at the two disciples walking down the road to Emmaus from Jerusalem (Luke 24:13-35). They were downcast, dejected and confused. Why downcast? They had been with Jesus for a while and had accepted Him as their Master…now he is no […]

Have you ever been a victim of Hasty Generalization? Let me explain what I’m talking about with an illustration. (Disclaimer: All characters appearing in this illustration are fictitious.

by host4kfn

When 87 yr old Tiwari, a former senior politician, was put to shame for fathering a son out of wedlock and then denying it, his unwitting remark was, “This is my personal matter.

Learning to Let it Go…

by host4kfn

Just the other day, I was watching the movie Hansie, a remarkable and true account of the former South African Cricketer, Hansie Cronje (1969-2002). After years of isolation from the international community (because of apartheid), when the nation was re-discovering itself, Hansie became South Africa’s golden boy. As captain, he took his country’s cricket side […]

Bee Surprised!

by host4kfn

What’s to fear in one small bee? Not much, but put fifty or sixty of them coming at you relentlessly and then you know the meaning of “Apiphobia.” That’s exactly what happened to me a few months back! Conducting the funeral of a dear friend’s father-in law; the last thought on anyone’s mind was the furious attack of a […]

The Practice of Prayer

by host4kfn

1.  Twice a day set apart a minimum of fifteen minutes each as soon as waking up and just before going to bed. 2.  Sit up straight with your legs stretched and body straight and the body relaxed.  A kneeling position with hands and head slightly lifted up with eyes closed is found to have […]

Steinway & Sons, which was founded in 1853, is the maker of the finest pianos in the world.  They make grand concert pianos and also smaller family living room pianos. Steinway pianos are unique; no two Steinways ever sound exactly alike. Each and every Steinway has its own distinctive personality.  Some have a quieter voice […]

Faith-Life Connection

by host4kfn

Faith and trust are most essential for the very existence of human race. For example, we trust our milkman. If we have a little doubt about his milk, we would not be able to have morning coffee with milk in it! We trust rail way time tables. We trust taxi drivers. We trust people around us to make our […]
