My beloved mother passed away at around 8.30 pm on past Thursday. By God's Grace, I and my brother could give our affection, physical and emotional support to some extent (As she had her own pension, she had never been dependent on any one financially). I'll post a few recent photographs of her and my beloved father (who passed away nearly 20 years back) when I find time.

Saturday Softrock

As I write this post in a sunny afternoon viewing a musically magnetic performance by a Softrock band called "Boy", my memory takes me back to the softrock era. I think that Softrock fans like me would be glad that Softrock hasn't gone away from the performing arts scenario.

Shree Raama Navami

Today is a very auspicious day for Hindus.  It is celebrated as Shree Raama Navami.  This is the day on which Shree Mahaa Vishnu took avataar as Lord Shree Raam and descended on the Earth during Trethaa Yugaa. On this auspicious day, marriage of Lord Shree Raam with Seetha Devi  (an Avataar of Shree Mahaa Lakshmi) is also performed in many temples.

Mark Knopfler to Milow

As I write this post, I have the pleasure of viewing a nice performance by a popmusic group known as 'Milow' on DW TV. Their music resembles that of Mark Knopfler in its simplicity and magnetism.
