Devil’s Advocate: A bundle of paradoxes

Sir, Launching of Karan Thapar’s book ‘Devil’s Advocate – The Untold Story’ (Star of Mysore dated Aug.28) was indeed a very well-organised programme and equally well-attended for which Mysuru Literary Forum gets all the credit and also to those who interacted with the highly articulate  author. Karan Thapar is not an easy person to deal…

Vote and Vote Right

Sir, The Urban Local Body elections are scheduled for Aug. 31 and the need of the hour is good leaders with intelligence and integrity.  It is unfortunate that good people are shying away from taking this responsibility.

Adi Shankaracharya and Swami Vivekananda

Sir, KBG’s Abracadabra titled ‘Pavan Varma’s Parakaya Pravesha of Adi Shankara – 2’ (SOM dated Aug.23) was interesting. At the end he has mentioned that Deepak Thimmaiah wondered if there were more Shankaras, who accomplished all that is attributed to Adi Shankaracharya alone. In my opinion, it is like wondering how Swami Vivekananda could accomplish…

Human values lost in the rat race !

Sir, This has reference to the article “Rat race, is it worth it?” by N.K.A Ballal (SOM dated Aug. 23). Ballal has rightly touched the very root of our present education system at the cost of enjoying life. Academic parameters are the only benchmark to assess a child and in the rat race, human values…
