Thanks to Sri Venkata Subramanian for sending this and other photos. I wanted to share this first and rest later.
This photo has rekindled my memory. We were living in Dalmiapuram. Those days, one may not purchase every magazine – you can’t afford to. My mother signed up for a magazine circulation club for Rs 5 per month or so. We get Vikatan, Kumudam, Kalki etc. As a 10 year old boy, all you like to see is colorful photos and particularly on the cover page. This one issue is still fresh in my mind because of His penetrating eyes. Seeing this same cover page after three decades is a pleasant feeling.
You can’t take eyes off this one!
Looking back those days, today, we only get garbages from most leading magazines – Vikatan, Kumudam etc. At the same time, more spiritual magazines have come out today – may or may not be at the same level of quality from those days.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
