Sayonara “Damodara 2006”

It was a month we wished the dusk would never end. The Butter Thief
binding us with Him. Many with tears, alas! The glorious month glided
swiftly in churned butter.

Injured soldiers

The haze had left us all sick. Some were vomitting and others coughing and having diarrhea. Just as they recovered, their Final exams were due.

Then it was time for making Deepavali cookies. In my eagerness to do the Deepavali Caroling I had forgotten about allocating some time for making the cookies.The Lord must have been hungry for those cookies, so I guess we all fell sick for a good reason….to feed him with those cookies.

Deepavali Caroling


The same crowd attended the Damodara celebration in my house for the last couple of years. I was getting frustrated – most relatives and friends don’t seem to have the same frequency when it comes to spiritual understanding. Only one was chanting seriously. Her husband attends our festivals regularly. I decided all we can do for the rest of them was to feed them prasadam and give them an opportunity to show a ghee lamp to the Lord. Perhaps in the next lifetime they will take up KC seriously.

This year I decided I must attract new people but the question was how. (more…)
