Poor Horse Didn't Cause Violence: Ashvamedha
I often read about horse of Ashvamedha in my childhood. My idea of it was close to the picture below. "The hose was then let loose and the army followed it." But it was confusing...surely the empire building did not depend on the random horse movements. Kar...

Aesop's The Fox and The Lion: 21st Century Version
This is what Aesop wrote many centuries ago: "A fox who had never seen a lion one day met one, and was so
terrified at the sight of him that he was ready to die with fear. After a time
he met him again, and was still rather frightened, but not nearly so muc...

Story
Introduction
आठवत,आठवत- आईला, ताई-मावशीला, कुमुद-मावशीला, शोभनाला, श्रीधर जोगळेकर-सरांना, पंडितराव खाडीलकरांना, वाकडमानीला, चिंट्याला, ढोलीला आणि मिरजेला…कधीतरी पुन्हा मी तुम्हाला भेटेनच!...ज्ञानेश्वर: "कां पावो शीतळता लाहे| कीं ते डोळ्याचिलागीं होये| तैसा परसुखें जाये| सुखावतु||"...समर्थ रामदास: "भाषा पालटे कांही, अर्थ वाया जात नाही"...नामदेव: "नामा म्हणे तुमचे घरी सोनें दाम। आमुचे घरीं तुमचे नाम।"... समर्थ रामदास: "जरी भक्षिता मिष्ठान्न, काही विष्ठा काही वमन / भगीरथीचे घेता जीवन, त्याची होये लघुशंका"...जी ए कुलकर्णी: "अरे, निर्बुद्ध, जड़ जगाविषयी बदलती रुपके करत राहण्यापेक्षा तुझ्या रुपकांप्रमाणे जर जग बदलत जाऊ लागले तर तुला तरी जास्त काय हवे सांग.", "तू आणि मी मिळून अजूनही त्या भडव्या नशिबाला टांग मारू", "त्याने प्रेमाचा व शांतीचा संदेश सांगितला, पण प्रसार झाला तो तलवारीच्या जोरावर; त्याने निरिच्छ्तेवर भर दिला, तर आता त्याच्या धर्माचा आधार आहे संपत्ती. हा तुला त्याचा विजय वाटतो, तसे पाहिले तर त्याचे सच्चे अनुयायी एखाद्या खेड्यातील वसतीपेक्षा जास्त नसतील. पण म्हणून का त्याच्या शिकवणीचे महत्व कमी होते?"
