    Dear Bhargavi,
    Yes, you are right.
    For the first, let me quote a "local " example !
    When we start a thread on a topic, which we feel passionate about, there is very poor response or practically no feedbacks. But there is the satisfaction that we wrote on our pet topic and expressed our views!
    I would even say, Krishna placed all facts in front of Arjuna to help him arrive at a decision though we know that he had to do it to deliver Gita !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Madhu,
    Thanks.
    Do not worry that Krishna is not around us today. But his Gita is here to show us the way !
    The philosophical theories are given in simple language and the suggested schemes for self-improvement are unique in their variety and effectiveness.
    Gita just gives the pros and cons of every issue and allows the individual to take one’s own decision. Do we not learn better that way ?
    We must remember that after listening to the Gita, Arjuna did not become a hermit ! He fought a fierce war and won over his enemies !
    That is why , of all our scriptures, Gita is considered as a practical code to life.
    Love,
    Chithra.
