Going beyond…

Robert Frost once wrote: "Two roads diverged in a wood, I took the one less traveled by And that has made all the difference." What a classic line that is, for a century later we all still relate to it. In the August of 2013, Krishnashtami day, my Master told me to come and live … Continue reading Going beyond…

Of a ‘Life’ beyond labels
