Savitri – A Soul for Any Age Written by Eloise & Miriam  Monday, 18 October 2010 07:06
It was a real pleasure to see children of Udavi School on Friday morning being excited about the theater play. Under the gentle guidance of versatile director Jill children proved to the audience that they can be great actors, beside expressing themselves in other language. The beauty of classical great poem Savitri lies also in that, that it can be told and expressed on many ways, and the time doesn't play significant role in it. Jill skillfully engaged the sited audience, mostly consisted of Udavi School children, to keep them alert and active as she gave them a role to play as well.

The pompous nobodies on the editorial board are entitled to nothing. What they do is a service to the Divine and has NOTHING to do with RIGHTS and ENTITLEMENTS. Whoever came up with that statement was arrogating to himself/herself rights they did not possess. The Ashram has no business officially speculating on alternative readings of Savitri based solely on it's own grammatical/contextual/content-based/ etc. etc. mentation-based ignorance.
What the scribe heard is none of their business and shows a Titanic arrogance that would turn the whole Savitri topsy-turvy. What is there to prevent the same presumptuous brain from using the same logic to suggest alternative renderings of EACH LINE in Savitri? Nothing. There would be nothing to prevent each line of the Savitri from being thrown into dispute. While you can keep mocking Sunil based on totally irrelevant counts, we all know what he meant by eat the menu, your own words, howsoever grammatically correct betray an alarming lack of intelligence and mala-fide intentions against those who choose to question the integrity and correctness of those who question the integrity and correctness of the Savitri itself. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 5:41 PM, October 20, 2010
Continuing on the theme of practice:
