Modern Vanaprastha

Modern Vanaprastha

Serene Pelican resident A. Ramasamy draws a comparison between life at a senior living community and the life prescribed to seniors in ancient Hindu text Manusmriti.

Living peacefully, happily and actively in old age

Living peacefully

Serene Urbana resident Dr A. Sreekumar Menon writes about the unpleasant aspect of ageing and how one can combat them. “Left with more idle time now, they may not know how to spend time. They get bored easily. They should develop an attitude of being active and keeping good spirits.”

SWEET SOMETHINGS

Sweet Something

Serene Indus Valley resident Sujatha Sathiamurthy writes about the importance of staying in touch with happy memories. “When I hear all the talk about “leaving the past behind,” I think it is too broad a statement. For sometimes, the memories of “sweet somethings” are required to bring back the smiles on worry-creased faces…”

IT’S GOOD ENOUGH

Good enough

Serene Pushkar resident Geeta Gopalakrishnan gently nudges the reader to be happy when things are good enough. “The concept of “everything” or “nothing” gets undue importance, and “something” gets lost in between. The charming concept of “good enough” was invented to serve as an escape from dangerous ideals.”

The charm of the unspoken

Serene Indus Valley resident Sujatha Sathiamurthy writes about her fascination for poetry as a medium of expression. “Poetry truly transcends limits – be it time, space, circumstances, even reason. And yet it is so appealing. The more abstract the content, the more we can relate to it. What a paradox!”

Birthday musings

Serene Urbana resident Dr A. Sreekumar Menon pens down his thoughts on how birthday is a day for reflection.

The sound of music

Serene Urbana resident Dr Rajaram writes that music is omnipresent and therapeutic. “In 1961 students and faculty at Annamalai University studied the effect of music on paddy fields. They found out that the fields exposed to Nagaswaram music of Rajaratnam Pillai every morning grew faster and better over a period of four months.”

Listening Vs Reading

Serene Urbana resident Dr A. Sreekumar Menon writes, “There are limitations to learning by listening when compared to learning by reading. Our mind can grasp much faster than we can speak; there is always idle time for the mind to wander while the spoken words get imprinted on it.”
