Gam Ki Andheri Raat Mein

Gam ki andheri raat mein
Dil ko na bekarar kar
Subah zaroor aayegi
Subah ka intezaar kar

Which means: Do not despair as you go 'through' the dark unhappy night. Morning will surely break in! Wait for it!

If you refuse to look at the brighter side, and hope for a better tomorrow, you will get sucked into the whirlpool of depression.

I once said at a lecture: Create your own joy as readily as you create your own sorrow. I believe that statement changed, at least, one person's life. How do I know that? Because she told me. You will say: " I do not create my sorrow" Most 'sorrows' are created because we 'do things' not for ourselves, but to be praised by others. That is like the 'pot of gold' at the end of the rainbow. There will always be a person with a 'richer husband, a more beautiful wife, a more expensive car, a more luxurious home… 

I am not saying that you must not be ambitious…I am saying that strive for more, for yourself… not to keep up with the Jones's. Your possessions will then, not possess you. They will be there for your comfort…and all that comes, and all who come close to you, will feel blessed…and so will you.


Kanchan Pamnani is/was my student…now she has moved on and how!

She appeared in the Savvy Magazine of August 2006…wait! there is more…she is featured with personalities like Aung San Suu Kyi,  Barkha Dutt, Arundhati Roy, Sonia Gandhi, Aishwarya Rai,Medha Patkar, Preity Zinta, Rashida Bee, Aruna Roy, Kiran Bedi, Bharati Mamani, Sheila Dixit, Mukhtaran Mai….

Who is Kanchan?  Together with the other ladies she symbolizes Rabindranath Tagore’s poem: Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high…Where knowledge is free…

Kanchan is visibly disabled.

…She has her own independent practice with work related to corporate, testamentary and property law. She is forever smiling and insists that she has “many miles to go…”

Are you still whining?

 I got a nice note from a friend:


We require each other for support and strength.
Glad Kanchan Pamnani became a lawyer although she is
blind and that you were one of her sources of
support and strength.

The ego and the Self dwell as intimate friends in the
same body, like two golden birds perched in the same
tree. The ego eats the sweet and sour fruits of the
tree, while the Self looks on detached. For as long as
you identify with the ego, you will feel joy and
sorrow. But if you know you are the Self, the Lord of
Life, you will be free from suffering; the supreme
source of light; the supreme source of love. You will
transcend duality and live in a state of Oneness.
-Mundaka Upanishad
