At Vipassana International Academy, Igatpuri:

At Vipassana International Academy, Dhammagiri, Igatpuri:
Attended 10 days Vipassana meditation course at Igatpuri. Spent 12 most exciting (though silent) days of my life. What an experience! I successfully observed “A Complete Noble Silence” (Arya Mouna- no talking, no newspapers, no TV, no cell phones, no music n so on) throughout the 10 days! Ya, I survived without my phone/book/laptop/internet/family/friends/pen n paper for 10 whole days! By the end of the course, I almost forgot what my netbook n phone looked like! They also got some well-deserved rest!
The location too was awesome. It was surrounded by a thick forest n hills and there was a giant Pagoda in the center. All the thoughts of the meditators were reflected against the hills and bounced back in pure form. Vipassana is science based and has no religious association. It is a technique to observe sensations on your body and become neutral to both happy / sad sensations.Yes, everyone should experience it at least once in a life!

VIEW (Voices of the Indian English Writers)

Both first n second issues of our journal VIEW (Voices of Indian English Writers, an international Peer Reviewed Journal of English Language and Literature ISSN 2347-7717) received to me today. Due to technical problems, issues are delayed to get printed and hence both issues are brought together.
Feeling happy that VIEW is being 'viewed' and 'reviewed' by literary scholars and critics with appreciation. Feeling nice to be associated with Dr. Ratan n Dr Jaydeep for these two issues of 2013and could help them in editing, correcting, formating draft of issues. Now this journal will appeare in new form with new editorial board from 2014 issues. My one paper and one review on my one of books also appeared in it.
