Breathing new life into samadhis


Damdama Baba Sahib Singh Bedi and the samadhi of Baba Kaladhari in Una are significant monuments of Punjabi heritage. They are now being restored to their original glory without the help of government funds, says Roopinder Singh.

Lord Karan & legend of the bee
by Ravi Bali
HE Mahunag temple in Himachal Pradesh is a unique temple. It is dedicated to Lord Karan, whose feats are chronicled in the epic Mahabharata. Lord Karan was a mahadaani and his acts of charity are a legion. Situated 25 km away from the Karsog valley on the Shimla-Mandi highway on an elevation of 1830 metres, the temple commands a panaromic view of the valley on one side and the northern Himalayas, on the other.

Too soon old, too late smart

OUTH is wasted on the young", observed Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Quite true — but only upto a point. Many of us would agree, that if only we had had the wisdom and experience of age in our youth, we would have taken different roads, made better choices and enjoyed life more fully all those years ago.
