  2. Dr. Abdul Kalam has written greatly about the great gesture of Maha Periyava who prevented the shifting of the Islamic mosque next to the Kanchi Sri Matham, even though it was initiated by the Government.

  5. Dear Blogspot followers and Mahesh,

    I’m writing this as Kalam’s mortal remains is nearing its final destination – something struck me on the parallels between three great souls who lived in the times close to each other – Swami Vivekananda, Mahaperiyava and Dr Abdul Kalam. The common denominator that stands out are simplicity, renunciation, brahmachrayam, accessibility, and a continuous desire to uplift humanity – look at the result.

    The existence of the theory of karma and rewards proportional to the merits gathered needs no further proof. Benefits may be felt by one who have these great qualities in their lifetime itself, but such thing as keerthi will mean nothing to these great souls and they are perhaps indifferent to such things. The far less evolved ones like me will have to wait for the next birth perhaps.

    In these days of Muslim hatred and fear, it is refreshing to see a Muslim man sitting so close to our Acharya. This one photo conveys so many messages. It happens only in India.
