Mahabharat

"Jeevan ka yeh sampoorn saar hai"
--It is the essence of life and existance

this song perfectly emotes Arjuna’s feelings before the Yudh.

Farewell, new Mahabharat!

It was fun while it lasted… tragedy, comedy, and unintentional comedy included. Thanks for the memories and all the new friends :)

Hindu Mytho Meme | Events 1/8: Birth of Krishna || (Part 1 x)

"Mother."

She was still trying to see, blinking and blinking to make her eyes focus.

"Father."

Vasudev was using his hands to shield himself and strained his eyes, trying to see what was before him.

Devaki’s vision finally cleared. Her mouth dropped open.

Vasudev’s face mirrored hers, gazing upwards.

"My beloved parents," the Supreme Lord said to them, his voice making the ground beneath them quiver, it was so deep. He was looking down from a great height, his dark skin glowing like a burning ember. His dark eyes were vast as he gazed from one to the other. "You see I kept my promise to you."

Devaki suddenly remembered what promise. Lifetimes ago, when she and her husband had asked for a special boon of the Lord.

"You asked for a son like me," he told them, "and I promised you would have one."

Vasudev nodded, remembering.

"Then I realised that there was no one like me. I resolved to come as your child myself, to keep my word to you both."

Devaki was overcome. The Lord of all the world was before her and she was his mother.

Vasudev gazed up at the awesome sight before them. “We thank you for this honour.”

The Lord raised his arms. “The honour is mine, Father. Now you must take me across the Yamuna river to Vraj, to Nanda’s house. There Yashoda has just given birth to a daughter. Leave me there and bring her daughter back here.”

Vasudev nodded.

The Lord turned to Devaki. “But, Mother, why are you quiet? Are you not pleased to see me?”

She shook her head in disbelief. “I’m most pleased. I’m only quiet because I’m waiting to see my son.”

He tilted his head and smiled. “But here I am.”

She gestured to his body. “This is not the form of my son. This is the form of my divine father.”

He laughed, making their skin tingle with the thrilling sound. “Mother, your word is my law, ” he said. “Very well. You wish to see your son? Then here I am.” In a moment the blinding light went out and only a baby was left on the ground, newly born from Devki’s womb. Both of them rushed to lift the tiny child and cradle it, already forgetting the awesome sight that had been before them.

May God protect us.

Let us all be content together, Let us help each other

Let our lives be full of devotion and divinity 

May we feel no enmity or jealouy towards each other.

Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

Ahh…so it’s over

In a way I’m happy it’s over- not because I wanted it to but because some things are best appreciated when a little yearning remains.

The highlight of the episode for me was the Gandhari-Krishna scene. For me, that scene symbolizes our relationship with God. We curse and blame him for all miseries, seldom thank him for our fortune but he’s always there for us- ready to embrace us, forgive us and guide us towards the right path. The way Gandhari clung to Krishna was a very poignant and touching scene.

SRJ, you’ve made me into a Krishna bhakt. I wouldn’t call my self an atheist but if there is one God, I’d like to worship, then it’d be Govinda.

Once again, a big thanks to Swastik PH and Star plus for making this magnum opus. Any creative or actor who’s worked with them should grab an opportunity to work with them again. Not too many PH are so organized, goal oriented and friendly.

Would love to stay in touch with a number of you…a big hug to all of you.

Thanks to everyone who read my posts, OSs and comments…
