    subject About Rajnikant shenoy

    I went through your chat transcripts with ’Rajnikant Shenoy’.

    He seems to be a paper tiger.

    Such creeps are best avoided.

    However, if he murmurs again -- I will take over.

    BTW, there are some people who have great expectations from men in Saffron. They expect every saffronite to be a peacenik like Mahatma Gandhi (turn the other cheek). That Shenoy is either a Crypto-Christian or has taken Gandhi’s pacifism too seriously.

    Either way, my gut feeling says that he is just a paper-tiger and a barking dog.

    However, if he troubles you again. Do inform me. I will settle the issue in my own way.

  • Yes, I repeat, mine is purely a labour of love, motiveless, without any pecuniary interest whatsoever in this effort of mine. As such, when I say ’I care a fig for it’ (I mean, for any pecuniary benefit from my effort), why should you get needlessly upset over it, and indulge in character assassination, I am really at a loss to understand. Yes, you and your web master by all means, keep for yourself all the monetary benefit arising from your efforts; I will never make any claim over your labour, for it is unethical (On the contrary, I have even congratuated you, unreservedly, for your commendable effort in making the world know about ’The Glory & Grandeur of Hindu Festival’, though you have not cared to mentioned it in so many words). What is wrong when I say this? Why you should needlessly take offence against me? I am really surprised at your intemperate language. As I have already noted, the source from where I received the material has been duly acknowledged and it was posted in good faith.

    As a civilised person, with a minimum courtesy, kindly read again (without tearing a line from here and a line from there) what I have written (I reproduce it again below) carefully, fully, thoughtfully, line by line, without any rancour whatsoever, without pouring your venom, without disparaging any one. Any way, I leave it to your good sense and discretion, and also to the discretion of the readers to come to their own conclusion, reading the comments posted online here:-

    Please take up the matter with him for further details, as I have already informed you.

    As for me, the main purpose is to highlight ’The Glory and Grandeur of Hindu Festival’ in a world infested with the rabidly anti-Hindu forces, who, time and again, choose to denigrate our great Hindu Culture, Tradition and the Sanatana Dharma, as a prelude to their nefarious proselytizing activities, brainwashing our gullible masses, to wean them away to their lesser religions/creeds.

    Being a true Hindu you should really feel proud about this and indeed should thank me for this labour of love of mine, rather than finding fault with me for my selfless and motiveless services, as a Hindu Monk. You should know I don’t have any pecuniary interest in this effort. You and your web master, both keep all that for yourself. I care a fig for it.

    Any way, I must congratulate you for your commendable effort in making the world know about ’The Glory and the Grandeur of Hindu Festival’, though you have not cared to mentioned it in so many words.

    Pl keep up your good work. swamijyoti ===============================================

    You call yourself a Swami with all that arrogance? :-O

    A simple acknowledgement or mention of our website would have settled it, but you seem to take law into your hands!

    Law will take its course, but first, lessons to learn from me now!

    Swamy Vivekananda may turn in his samadhi listening to such arrogance from so called follower of his! :-D

    I think you must take a crash course in anger management before calling yourself a Swami first, and lifting articles from other sources and gaining supremacy over people with your pseudo spiritualism next, Swami Zee! :-D

    Thanks for the compliments on my efforts. I do it without any expectations as yet!
    I don't lift articles from other sites also. I don't pin the blame on some Taranath Dinesh or Harish as well, if at all someone pin points at me!

    Your thought management looks not only bad, but sad as well, looking at how you shun the responsibility of lifting articles and blaming others for your failure! :-D

    If you understand Kannada, there is a saying - 'Aane kaddaroo kalla...adike kaddaroo kalla!'

    If you don't understand, kindly ask your friend Harish Kamath to decipher that in Sanskrit! :-D

    May the spirit be with you, Khodays, or others! :-D

  • I guess, our webmaster will come out with a decision in this regard, for he is the sole proprietor of that article as of now.

    Thanks for the clarification. Good gesture in this regard is well appreciated.

    However I think, to avoid any embarrassment in future, better be careful and see to it that articles from other sources don't come under copyright infringement when you reproduce them according to your convenience here or in other blogs!

Volunteers clad in red dhoti robes popularly known as 'Paatte Thodopu' were seen enthusiastically running around with small 'Kataars', serving devotees sumptuous feast of piping hot steamed white rice and the side dishes! Different sweet dishes were served to all the devotees on all the days of feast. Thousands of devotees the world over, gather every year to witness this event and to taste the prasadam in the form of feast. It is more or less, a get together for the GSB community every year! Every year, Rathotsava Feast is served in at least 5 rounds within the Temple and the surrounds. The annual Rathotsava this year is signified by 'Mrigabete Utsav' and 'Small Theru' on the 1st of February, 'Brahma Rathotsav' on the 2nd and 'Avabhratotsava' or 'Okuli' on February 3rd. On all the five days, the deity is taken out with enchanting manthras around Car Street in a Pallakki or sedan. On the final day today, HH Shrimad Sudhindra Thirtha Swamiji, the most pious Guruji of GSBs graced the occasion and delivered his message of peace and harmony to human kind. Present during the Ratharohana were Dr. P. Dayananda Pai and Sathish Pai, patrons of GSB Community, The Trustees of Sri Venkatramana Temple and other dignitaries, who were blessed by the Swamiji and were given the prasadam. Deities of Lord Venkatramana and Goddess Padmavathi were ceremoniously brought in the golden sedan to the Brahmaratha. After five rounds, amidst Jai Jaikaar by the devotees, the deities were taken up the ladder and installed within the Ratha. Pooja was offered by the devotees who patiently waited in the queue till almost 11.00 P.M. Feast was served within the Temple surrounds to thousands of devotees while the pooja was in progress. The Brahma Ratha was pulled around midnight, while people greeted The Lord with utmost devotion! Fire crackers greeted the Lord with colours and sound. Kodial Teru attracts people from all communities. Now a days, many a GSB youth take their friends for the feast to share the joy of the festival and togetherness! It also inspires young hearts for match making! -- Vivek Shenoy - 13 -
