Albert Einstein’s ‘Theory of Happiness’

In 1922, Einstein was at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, where he was on a lecture tour, and had recently learned that he had won the Nobel Prize.
While staying at Hotel, a courier came to the door to make a delivery.

The courier either refused a tip or Einstein had no small change, but Einstein wanted to give the messenger something nonetheless.

So on a piece of hotel stationery, Einstein wrote in German his theory of happiness:
"A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness."

On a second sheet, he wrote another message: "Where there's a will there's a way."

He told the bellhop to save the notes — they just might be valuable in the future.

Engineering Marvel Of India’s Master Builders

Rashtrakutas were great patrons of art and architecture. They were the great builders. The cave architecture reached its excellence under Rashtrakutas. And it was Krishana I who built the world famous Kailasha Temple at Ellora. Image
This masive structure is carved out of the single rock (monolithic) hewn out of a mountain which is truly a remarkable engineering feat of the 8th century. The Kailasa temple dedicated to Shiva, is exquisitely chiselled and carved.
It has four parts in all- the main shrine.. Image
entrance gateway, intermediate shrine for Nandi and a mandapa surrounding the courtyard.

Kalaripayattu: The World's First Martial Art

Sage Agastya is considered to be the creator of Kalaripayattu. Speculated to have lived sometime around 15,000 BCE, Agastya is one of the ancient saptarshis, a revered Vedic sage. He is considered to have fathered the ancient form of warfare which is speculated to be either a..
direct translation or parent form of Kalaripayattu. From this account, there seems to be no doubt that Kalaripayattu is the oldest art form of war.

The word kalaripayattu is a combination of two words, namely, ‘kalari’ and ‘payattu’ which mean training ground and fight.

When the battle was over, Ravana was killed by Bhagwan Rama. Mandodari saw his dead body and she grieved and said many things. An entire chapter is dedicated to her in Ramayana.

The meaning goes like this, “In the past, by performing a great penance..

you conquered the senses and conquered the three worlds. Now, as if revenging that enmity, those very senses conquered you.”

And it is a great reminder to all of us that no matter what we possess.
Indulging in worldly things like anger and revenge can take it away and cost us dearly. So while it may be difficult to achieve a victory it is equally or rather more difficult to maintain it. That’s our takeaway from this Vijayadashmi.

Of all the foreign travellers to the Vijayanagara Empire, Domingo Paes recordings are of unique values as they provide first hand vivid and graphic account of his personal experiences.
