    @Amulet
    Your mention of Guru Gobind Singh triggered some nostalgic memories in me. When I was in State Bank, I was asked to inspect and audit a Branch in Poanta Sahib on the Banks of Yamuna. Poanta Sahib is one of the major pilgrim centres of Sikhs where Guru Gobind Singh wrote his 10th Granth. I was there in 1976 and as the SBI had close liaison with the Gurudwar, I was allotted a room in the guest house adjacent to the Gurudwar and it had a wonderful view of Yamuna from the balcony. I was amazed by the devotion of the Sikhs visiting the shrine. The Gurudwara served free food to all the visitors which used to be quite heavenly to say the least. Yamuna was in full flow during my stay there.
    I can never forget that experience.

    @Thyagarajan
    My dear Thyagu
    I like these Colgate ads. The present one who is doing the lead role is samanta but she is not half as good as Kajal Aggarwal used to be.
    I am listening and hence this comment!

    Ravana is portrayed both with two hands and twenty hands.

    Twenty handed Ravana looks clumsy as compared to the two-handed one. If I had twenty hands, I would spend half the time in deciding which hand to use for what. It will be very cumbersome to sleep at night with twenty hands unless of course there was big mosquito menace when twenty hands would be helpful.
