  • To die again and again, by Saroop Krishen
    It is interesting how on occasions great minds belonging to two different civilisations, almost a world apart, express some of their basic thoughts in words which appear to be echoes of each other.

    Schopenhauer, the famous German philosopher, describes the life of man on this earth in the terms of a weakling riding a very strong and well-built horse which is rushing along at breakneck speed in a hilly area. The problem, however, is that the horse is blind and without any reins or stirrups. The rider thus has no means whatever of controlling it and can only see helplessly that any moment the horse might dash itself against the rocks or plunge down a deep gorge along with him. His heart is thus in his mouth all the time: in fact, the danger to him is so grave and imminent that it makes him die a death again and again.

    Ghalib expresses the same thought in almost identical terms. His couplet on the subject runs as follows:

    "Rau mein hai rakhsh-i-umr, kahan dekhiye thamey/na haath bag per hai, na paa hai rakaab mein." (The steed of life is in a rush, let us see where it stops/ there are no reins in my hand, nor are my feet in any stirrups).

    Sindhu Darshan festival to help promote tourism
    by Ruchika M. Khanna
    Are we finally beginning to get out of our communal nemesis? Well, the change in the political leadership at the top hopes to redefine the cultural heritage and reconstruct the religious thought to a nationalist thought. It’s time that the pure is separated from the profane. As Swami Vivekananda has rightly observed, “Each nation, like an individual, has one theme in life, which is at its centre. In India, religious life forms the centre.”

    Hence a reawakened Hinduism (not religious bigotry, but a commitment to a selfless way of life and to the cultural heritage of the land) is a must to keep the country’s institutions from fragmenting. If the celebration of festivals without associating these with narrow religious motives is the first infantile step in this regard, let the spark spread everywhere so that spiritual secularism reigns.

  • Khan Saheb in Kashi, Shekhar Gupta, Saturday, August 26, 2006

    Far from all the noise over Amsterdam and the war on terror, in the Ustad’s shehnai lies the note of reason

    What was the difference between Hindu and Muslim, he asked. What, indeed, when he sang to Allah in Rag Bhairav (composed for Shiva) and brought to tears the Iraqi maulana who had just told him music was blasphemy, “evil, a trap of the devil”. Khan Saheb said, “I told him, Maulana, I will sing to Allah. All I ask you is to be fair. And when I finished I asked him if it is blasphemy. He was speechless.” And then Khan Saheb told me with that trademark mischievous glint: “But I did not tell him it was in Rag Bhairav.” click here to continue reading
