    Yep, that's the game we, my plants and I, play too. Curry leaves, tulsi, jasmine...
    Some plants have even declared that I am capable of killing cactus and refused to live in my home.:facepalm:

    Wow Kamala, Awesome! I have always believed that when we are ready, help comes in many forms and some make an indelible mark on us and then we realize that it was always there. I am glad you could find answers in Ramanujacharya's philosophy. And as for Bhajagovindam, don't even get me started. I grew up listening to it almost everyday and play it here as well. Come to think of it, I am so grateful to my parents. We had a tradition growing up, nothing imposed - Bhajagovidam, hanuman chalisa everyday Lalitha every Friday and sometimes tuesdays, venkateswara suprabhatam every saturday and sunday was my favorite while dad would sit in his easy chair and listen to Bhavadgita rendition by Ghantasala, perhaps two hours of it all the while dad shedding tears in understanding, singing along surrendering himself! All this would be playing while all of us were busy getting ready for school, doing chores or homework in the morning!

    I am glad I was of some help. And as for that Cassini story missy, believe me we are all here waiting and some of us (read me :biggrin:) eager to use it in our classrooms. Seriously Kamala, next year my social studies unit focuses a lot on space and I will be using your material as I begin my preparation in these material. Thank you so much for that.

    Dearest Srama,

    What a post to uplift me. Is it a planetary movement or what? I was a bit down emotionally last few months as my studies take a serious turn, dealing with supercritical supervisors and assessors and so many young sudden deaths related to me since the start of the year. Believe me, I am happy to take criticism and improve my self if it was conveyed constructively, but what I got thrashed me down. But, when I was at the lowest, somehow universe sent me blessings which triggered me to bounce back.

    You are so right if you are open to receive then help comes in different ways. Your writing is so touching and it has a power to make a person smile or feel better. You are blessed Srama.

    Thank you and love,
    Vani

    Dear KKrish madam,
    Children and I treasure your space articles. Please bring on the Cassini on Saturn, we are looking forward to it. And also, thank you for introducing me Ramanujacharya. I will go and read about him.
    Take care and love,
    Vani

    Dear dear Vani,

    Thank you for such a warm feedback.
    I seem to wonder that too and often these days. I do not know if it will help you if I say you are not alone. My world has been topsy turvy too and while I am not searching for answers, I am trying to make sense of what's happening around me. You are fortunate to see the blessings as they come. That is the way to be. May you continue to receive those blessings.

    Thank you for your generous words. As much as I say I am grateful to able to put my thoughts and sometimes intense
    feelings down, it makes a world of difference to know that the same words also make a difference to others too. It is very gratifying. Thank you Vani, thank you!
