1. Introduction:

1.1
In the vibrant politics of Tamil Nadu, she has always had a unique persona. She's been somewhat of an enigma too. Imperious by nature, impervious to flak and projected as the Puratchi Thalaivi (revolutionary leader), former chief minister J. Jayalalitha seemed above the law.


1.2.
Till its long arm reached out to arrest her for abuse of authority and malfeasance last fortnight. From her palatial bungalow in Poes Garden to her rat and mosquito infested cell in the Madras Central Jail by the Cooum river, the fall from grace was as dizzying as it was dramatic. Nemesis did not creep up on Jayalalitha. It caught hold of her and dealt her a stunning blow.


1.3
When the state Cabinet met on December 5, Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi discussed at length with his colleagues the political fallout of sending the AIADMK supremo and once all-powerful Iron Lady of Tamil Nadu to jail. Halfway through the meeting, the decision had been made. "This is the right time. The people and the courts have begun to question why action against her is being delayed," a junior minister said.

THE END.

Thank you for reading

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Biography :

Personal Life & Legacy :



Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel tied the knot at the age of 18, to Jhaverba, who was twelve years of age then. Following the traditional Hindu customs, which allowed the bride to stay with her parents until her husband had a decent income and an established household, the two stayed apart for a few years until Sardar Patel had definite income to fall back on.

Along with Jhaverba, he set up a house in Godhra. The couple was blessed with a daughter, Manibehn, in 1904, and a son, Dahyabhai, two years later.

In 1909, Jhaverba, who was suffering from cancer, underwent a major surgical operation. Though the operation was successful, Jhaverba’s health continued to decline. She passed away the same year. Patel was against remarrying and instead raised his children with the help of his family.

Patel’s health started declining in the summer of 1950. Though he was taken care of intensely, his health worsened. To recuperate, he was flown to Mumbai, where he lodged at the Bi…

LORD SRI RAMA THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-10.

So the Epic of Ramayana is a long meditation on the superior manifestation of God in the form of Sri Ramachandra. Terror was Rama, thunderbolt was Rama--says Valmiki. But butter was Rama, a rose petal was Rama, all compassion was Rama--says the same sage Valmiki. In anger, Rama was fierce like fire,--fire comparable only with the fire during the dissolution of the cosmos, and at the same time nobody could be so compassionate, good-hearted and simple as Rama himself was. This is the dramatic contradiction of personality which Valmiki introduces into his Epic, to bring out the greatness of the divine personality. What are the characteristics of great men? They are harder than a diamond but softer than a lotus-petal. The great Masters are harder than a diamond and, therefore, you cannot do anything to them and they will never budge from their principles. You cannot shake them by your powerful logic and argumentation. This is only one side of these great Masters. The other…

LORD SRI RAMA THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-2.

The whole of the Ramayana is an Epic of humanity. Humanity does not mean mankind but that which particularly characterises human nature.

It is in this sense, Sri Rama is oftentimes called the paragon of humanity, an example of the perfection of human nature.

This perfection of human nature is not inclusive of the foibles of man in his lower endowments.

In the majestic words of Valmiki with which the Epic commences, we are given a description of what this perfection of humanity is, as an answer given by sage Narada to a question put by sage Valmiki as to who is the ideal of human nature.


"Whom do you think, O sage, is the perfect embodiment of humanity in this world and can you give me an example of such a perfection?" was the question put by Valmiki to Narada.

And then, Narada commences a dignified description of a personality whom today we know and adore as Sri Rama.

That majestic feature of bodily personali…
