Narakasur again

November 10, 2015

Driving back to my home in Goa last night, I saw many fully constructed Narakasurs along the way home.

Saw many groups of children stopping cars for donations….

But regrettably my physical energy fell short of mental excitement. Flight delays and flight detours caused by cyclone Roanu  had exhausted me – so no fresh interactions with any new Narakasurs or their slayers.

Here is an old note from a few years ago:

Happy Diwali to all!

May this year be filled with inner light and energy!
