A Hymn Of Gratitude


How do you feel after climbing a hill? Stand at the pinnacle of a mountain top?

Gratitude fills my heart.

There is deep satisfaction, at the culmination of an eventful journey -where words were my constant companions. A path which was profusely lush with hymns from the Holy Bible and the various Upanishads. Where Hanuman mantras merged seamlessly with propiatory shlokas praising the Goddess!

The first draft of a major translation project stands completed! Almost three hundred pages of sheer delight as a translator!

I am inspired by the humility, the brilliance and wisdom of the unassuming writer, who  gave me  full freedom and heartfelt  encouragement  at every stage! Thank you, thank you for the great opportunity!

On Navami,  when the splendour of the Goddess of Learning is casting its mesmerising magic all around, I bow before her graciousness in making me the chosen instrument of her wishes.

Guide us towards light…Mother! To work harder, to spread the beauty of learning, to quietly do our bit in this magnifIcent world, without getting sidetracked into what you may deem worthless in your divine wisdom.

‘But when they measured it with an omer, those who gathered much had nothing over, and those who gathered little had no shortage…!’

Thank You Again!
