In memory of Thatha…

More often than not, they were all stories of Gods, demigods, their progenies – describing various adventures and pastimes. My mom, often says that the …

Resurrection….

Has there been a moment in your lifetime when there was a startling current that would’ve surged through your spine, which would’ve made you stand up and take notice of the fact that you needed a huge make over?!!

ಹೊರೆಸಿಕೊಂಬ ನಾಯಿ ಮೊಲನೇನ ಹಿಡಿಯುವುದಯ್ಯ?!!

ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ರಾಜಕೀಯ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿ ಹದಗೆಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗಿರುವುದು ಹಳೆಯ ಸುದ್ದಿ.  ಕೊಳೆತ ಶವಗಳ ದುರ್ನಾತವನ್ನು ನಾಚಿಸುವಷ್ಟು ಅವಹೇಳನಕಾರಿಯಾದಂಥ ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆಗಳು ದಿನೇ ದಿನೇ ಎದುರಾಗುತ್ತಿವೆ. ದೇಶದ ಎದುರಿಗೆ ಮಾನ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡು, ತಲೆ ತಗ್ಗಿಸುವಂಥ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿಯನ್ನು ತಂದು ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಾರೆ, ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜಕೀಯ ಮುಖಂಡರು. ದೇಶಕ್ಕೇ ಭ್ರಷ್ಟಾಚಾರದ ಗೆದ್ದಲು ಹಿಡಿದಿರುವಾಗ, ಮನೆಯೊಳಗೆ, ಮನೆಯೊಡೆಯನನಿದ್ದಾನೋ ಇಲ್ಲವೋ ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿಯಲು ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಶ್ರಮ ಪಡಬೇಕಿಲ್ಲ. ಹೀಗಿರಬೇಕಾದರೆ, ಈ ರಾಜಕೀಯ ದೊಂಬರಾಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಇನ್ನೊಂದಷ್ಟು ಪಾತ್ರಗಳ ಸೇರ್ಪಡೆ.  ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಸ್ವಾಗತಿಸಿ ವೀರಶೈವ ಮಠಾಧೀಶರನ್ನು! ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ರಾಜಕೀಯದ ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆಗಳನ್ನು ಗಮನಿಸಿದರೆ, …

Surviving the Wild…

Errr… ahem! (Cautiously tip-toes.. looking around… hoping for some readers lurking in the corners. Not finding any.. there is a sense of strange relief and and also disappointment!) Now before you jump into the conclusion that am a refined version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, lemme assure that my polarity of emotions is just …
