Megha, The Bhakta with Firm, Unshakable Trust & Whole-hearted Bhakti for Sai

Trees - The Lungs of Our Planet

We all have been witnessing a deficient monsoon this year. Most parts of India have received very less showers and hence the threat of drought and effective price rise is looming large over our agrarian economy with ever growing population and needs.

You & Me Firm Together, Nothing Can Stand in the Way... Ever

Just the other day, I happened to watch the live telecast of the women’s 5000 metres final at the London Olympics. The finishing line was just a few metres away and an Ethiopian runner was giving it her all, to be the first to cross the finishing line. She had left the other runners way behind… she ran and she ran and finally crossed the finishing line… first! Meserat Defar had indeed

Nandai's birthday

Tomorrow is the 12th of August, our Param Poojya Nandai’s Birthday. To Suchitdada and me, She is our Taai our dearest and most loving elder Sister. We all celebrated her 50th Birthday last year in a grand manner.  To describe Nandaai in a single sentence is no mean task, but is achieved quite magnificently through the following words “Aniruddhachi Shakti Nanda Avatarli Jagati“, [Nanda, the all pervading Strength and Power of Aniruddha has manifested herself in this World].

Power Grid Failure & Its Social Implications

By now everyone of us must have come to know about the collapse of eastern, northeastern and northern electricity grids that knocked out power in 20 of 29 states and affected some 620 million Indians (around half of India’s population and 9% of the world’s population) causing havoc at train stations, airports, hospitals and on roads. For instance, Delhi Metro had to evacuate passengers from trains that stopped mid-journey. The
