‪#‎India‬ celebrates birth anniversary of the great epic hero ‪#‎Rama‬ . . . (missing Google doodle for this day)
Srimad Valmiki ‪#‎Ramayana‬ is an epic poem of India which narrates the journey of Virtue to annihilate vice. Sri #Rama is the Hero and 'aayana' His journey. . . This epic poem Ramayana is a smriti which is translated as "from memory". . . .It is composed of verses called Sloka, in Sanskrit language, which is an ancient language from India and a complex meter called Anustup. These verses are grouped into individual chapters called Sargas, wherein a specific event or intent is told. These chapters or sargas are grouped into books called Kaandas . . . While stabilizing the original text of Ramayana, historians surmised that portions of two Books [Kaandas], namely Book I, Bala Kaanda and Book VII, Uttara Ramayana are later additions - "The first and the last Books of the Ramayana are later additions. The bulk, consisting of Books II--VI, represents Rama as an ideal hero. In Books I and VII, however Rama is made an avatara or incarnation of Vishnu, and the epic poem is transformed into a Vaishnava text. Click this link to read original Valmiki Ramayana with translation in English. . .

The Three Oddest Words
When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past.

When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it.

When I pronounce the word Nothing,
I make something no non-being can hold.

 

By Wislawa Szymborska (The Nobel Prize in Literature 1996)
Translated by S. Baranczak & C. Cavanagh

"Yes, of course, this novel is a tribute to many women and also Virginia Woolf’s mother who in those days devote herself to nurture the family with values and warmth. Mrs. Ramsay's character portrayal supports the idea of ideal Indian woman as described in Sanskrit shloka: 
‘Karyeshu dasi, Karaneshu manthri;
Bhojeshu mata, Shayaneshu rambha;
Kshamayeshu dharithri, Roopeshu lakshmi;
Satkarma yukta, Kuladharma pathni’.

"In the play we have ‘waiting’ and in the painting ‘longing’. Both connote 'desire'. In addition, there is a stony path in both, the play and the painting. The painting, it is said, inspired Beckett. . . We can see on one side there is a barren tree and on the other side a grown tree (full of green leaves). So, perhaps a person by the side of barren tree is Estragon (with blank mind) and a person by the side of grown tree is Vladimir (full of thought).
