That 80's era..

Our morning used to start with tune .. how can one forget this montage and the tune behind it..
DD Morning :)
If you lived in the 80’s and 90’s, some of the Kannada DD serials which would linger in your memory :) also not to forget, the message ಅಡಚಣೆಗಾಗಿ ಕ್ಷಮಿಸಿ followed by a TV screen would be filled with multicoloured bars (or shades of gray in a B/W TV) and a high pitch whining sound. It was an era of weekly soaps. We had all the time and memory to remember our serials and used to wait eagerly for an week to watch the next episode.
Some of the serial which I can recollect are..
Crazy colonel - Ramesh Bhat with his trademark laughter
thirugu Bana
Guda dha bhoota – Prakash Raj at his best. (Opening track)
Bisilu Kudure
Ajithana SahasagaLu- B V rajaram minching as Mr Holmes
Sihi Kahi – Sihi Kahi Chandru and Geetha
Maya Mruga – the first daily serial in Kannada, I suppose
Sutta Mutta – Who can forget Aparna
Officaayana by T.S.Nagabharana
Munnota – this one was never missed since it gave sneak preview of upcoming programs for the week.
Chitramanjari – Can anyone forget this program?
and many more.. what are the ones which you used to follow or watch on TV?

Zeitgeist Movement

Zeitgeist does NOT offer a cure. It offers a mega dose of the disease itself.
With America politicians and representatives ignoring the masses and passing off the debt of banks on to the general public,Zeitgeist Addendum seems to further the cause for this New World Order, neo-socialist paradigm.
The world war marked a climax in the history of mankind, it heralded an era of diplomacy, corporatocracy and finally hypocrisy ;-) . The world as a whole might have taken huge strides in terms of infrastructure, communication , value chain , monetary systems, aid mechanism etc.
Let it not be forgotten, however, that there is another side to the picture. These activities has eroded psychological, spiritual and physical values- of mankind. The activities which must constitute a primary responsibility have taken a back seat in the name of globalization and distribution/creation of wealth - whether natural or human.
The movie at the end of this link (Video) talks about the money creation process - and the inevitable social ramifications and consequences of it. It provides a deeper insight into the agendas of the WTO, IMF and World Bank, and the strategies of the west pursues to clandestinely and rapidly extend its economic empire, without anyone even knowing it is an empire.

The Venusproject is a nice attempt to dream about an ideal society which would conserve all the world's resources as the common heritage of all of the Earth’s people, eliminate artificial boundaries (Osho view point) and then create a resource-based world economy. A few devoted people have dedicated their time to research on these aspects and atleast few people like us must inform others of the humane benefits of this new direction.

The cry of the soul

Give me love
Give me peace on earth
Give me light
Give me life
Keep me free from birth
Give me hope
Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with,
heart and soul

Oh My Lord . . .

PLEASE take hold of my hand, that
I might understand you . . .

George Harrison (1943-2001)

The world around me says Make no little plans. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work. Think big.

Where am I today? How did I get here? Where should I be going? And how should I get there?
