It does feel good to be back hereTough people go through tough times. There is a saying that Tough times do not last, but tough people do. This happened to me as well. The first challenge was the conducting of my daughter's marriage, under severe conditions. Somehow, by God's grace, it went on well. Furthermore, there was this shock of losing some close friends due to Covid-19. Though I was sick a few times, I escaped from Covid-19, thanks to the two vaccinations.
And then I did come across some good family members who suggested that I go back to doing some rituals, as mandated by the community to which I belong. I did that and am still doing it. It was also suggested that I start wearing ear-rings in both my ears, similar to what the Tamil pundits and temple priests do, I did this with some reluctance, but found that to be very useful. It did make my mind calm and I have now started to realize that inner peace can play a great deal of difference in the tough times.
All that I want to ask is to find out from Rao Sir and others, whether wearing the earrings is now becoming so common? I do find many people going back to the old times. Is this a good way, as we sometimes tend to forget our roots. Undertaking long journeys has been tough, though.
Hope everyone is okay. This Covid-19 menace is still around and I do hope to be able to contribute in the same old fashion. And get back to writing articles.
