Welcome to kasarabada.org

This issue carries information on a Trust in the name of a person dear to Kasarabadas namely Prof Bhavaraju Sarveswara Rao who scaled Academic and Professional heights. A profile of Prof Bhavaraju Sarveswara Rao is also added for information. This information is available at the links indicated above and the same are also carried under Trust

For Lovers of Sanskrit we have another variation.

It is normal for the writers to go overboard in their descriptions. If one looks at ‘ Fortune” or the “Lakshmi” , in our folk lore all of us would have gone through Bhartruhari subhashitaalu/ Vemana Satakam /Kabirs Dohas giving four lines on one aspect indicating how fortunate one can be "Acquiring" fortune or by staying away from "Fortune".

But finding all 'the misfortunes of having fortune' in one go would be like a ready script written for an NTR or MGR to deliver in ringing theatrical tones . That is what we come across in " Kadambari", a legendary Sanskrit Classic of “Bhasa”. It come out as part of an advice to an young prince . As usual we were tempted. Yes we are pleased to reproduce the paragraph on "Lakshmi" under 'one more thing' !!

Lest we lose track, the advice of Sukanasa to Chandrapida ( Characters in "Kadambari") goes from how difficult is "Fortune" to how "Fortune" may affect the attitude of a person. And all this is said not to dissuade the young prince from acquiring"Fortune" but to alert him to possible diversions and ask him to guard against the same !

This issue also carries the 85th Chapter of Dasama Skandha of Bhagavatam. This chapter is about Krishna's Parents Devaki and Vasudeva. And Devaki displays the natural trait of a mother's anguish. Having known that Balarama and Krishna brought back to life the son of Guru Sandipani as a Gurudakshina , Devaki bares her feelings for the seven children killed by Kamsa. She Asks Krishna to bring them back. Krishna acting as a dutiful son would brings them back to life. The chapter 85 covers that story.
