NEW COMMENT ON RAMNARINE SAHADEO’S BOOK: MOHANDAS K. GANDHI, Thoughts, Words, Deeds, ISBN 1-4653-4282-6

August 29, 2012

  

“This compilation of Mahatma Gandhi’s thoughts and words, and his commentaries on the Bhagavad-Gita show the relevance of them to our troubled times.

These words are eternal; they carry in them truth that transcends all creeds and times, and speak to the human quest for purpose and meaning all through the ages.

In making them available to the people at large, Mr. Sahadeo shows his commitment to peace and goodwill amongst all people.”

INDIA 66th ANNIVERSARY OF INDEPENDENCE

August 15, 2012

INDIA INDEPENDENCE DAY !!

“Here is thy footstool and there rest thy feet where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

When I try to bow to thee, my obeisance cannot reach down to the depth where thy feet rest among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

Pride can never approach to where thou walkest in the clothes of the humble among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

My heart can never find its way to where thou keepest company with the companionless among the poorest, the lowliest, and the lost. [ Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore ]

And in the heart of every twilight
where dreams are measured beyond sleep
where darkness has no forgiveness to offer the dawn of resplendent light
where every birth is bestowed the right to live, but bequeath the urge of plight
I come to offer prayer for our forefathers
who drifted to lands afar unknown in sight.
(Leonard Dabydeen)

Jai Hind !!! Happy India Independence Day !!! Best Wishes to all my FRIENDS, ASSOCIATES, BROTHERS AND SISTERS in India and of Indian origin around the world across oceans and seas and rivers, over mountains and valleys. NAMASTE !!!
