Recently I came across an article in op ed of Deccan Chronicle,and thought it’s apt to understand the meaning of Maya  (illusion),in our day to day life’ by sharing the same . Before we proceed further, you should know that Sudama, is a childhood friend of Hindu Deity Lord Krishna. One day Sudama wished to have a glimpse of God’s Maya (illusion). He had heard a lot about Maya but never understood what it was as he was always surrendered to God. One day, he finally asked Lord Krishna, “What is Maya? What is the form of Maya? How does Maya untangle a man?” He directly sought answers of these questions from Lord Krishna and kept requesting him to show a glimpse of Maya. Lord Krishna replied that when time comes he shall give him the answers and also show him Maya. Then he said, “Let us go to Yamuna to take bath.”  Both of them came to the banks of Yamuna to take bath. After taking bath, Lord Krishna started dressing in Yellow and in the meantime Sudama went to take a dip in water. At the time of taking dip, Sudama felt that the river was flooded and he was being washed away in it. With great difficulty, by […]

Just 2 minutes read I am not sure at what age person can be described as a  Old Person ! Every  country has its own criteria I hope.Who decides ? How does it feel like to be old ? I always felt I’m not old rather  becoming younger as I am aging. Can I decide and declare to my family that that I can never be old ? and nobody dare call me old ! Or Can I decide and declare that I am old ? Is definition of old age is by the number of years or by appearance ? Young people may appear old and old people may appear young by looks.Some confusion being added up. Also the funny part is how each age group think of the number when asked about the definition of old age in years, Those below 20 say old age starts at 60 Those around 50  say old age starts at 70-80 Those around 70  say old age starts at 90 + Simply calling a person ‘old idiot’ ……are we succumbing to ‘racism ? Who is right and who is wrong ? Younger generation feel,they are looked down by the older generation and if you ask older generation,they say it’s just the opposite. Why majority of the people are secretive about their age ? Does it look bad in the society if you reveal your age ? Nothing makes you look older than […]
