Chamois rambled on about the writings of Rabindranath Tagore the legendary poet, Sas and writer who won the Nobel Prize in literature and nineteen thirteen, the first Asian to do so. To Gore's work was formed during my father's childhood or so he said Beverly cleary was during mind, but I didn't feel explaining Ramona Quimby to him. Wesley United both excited about the food I told them all. We were. rejected the side of my brown notice. I've always loved Indian food as Wesley. Plan, is to give you all home cooked food by Cook is very good yesterday. I bought special fresh fish for you. Various types of fishes. You cannot get this fishing, America brand new good fish. We'll take care of you. I've got Indian white wine, red wine, and Indian beer showing said, i. had never had a drink with him before. Now, we're talking I answered. Hit. Surprise me to learn that he had his own cook though we soon realize that this is a very common in India. We were initially hammering out the details of the trip. Schmil asked us to bring a gift for woman who stayed with him. I. Quietly wondered if he had remarried without mentioning it, he hadn't. It turned out. The Shimo was referring to his Cook Aparna. Part of the reason I resented my father I was young was I didn't feel like I had one. There was a cultural gap between us. His upbringing in India never yielded to American assimilation as well. A generational one. Schmaltz, almost fifty years older than me. High. School. I had a friend named Paul live down the street. His father stand play the guitar and Talk Paul. WHO's my age how to play? They were in a classic rock band together, which performed covers the Beatles. Billy. Joel. Mac musica locked. In highschool standing vitamin to be part of the band's new keyboardist, this was the street light band. I felt more of a connection to stand in my own dad. There's no way to talk to Chamois about how rumors was one of the best albums ever made. He didn't know what rumors fleetwood Mac or actual rumors were. Fatherhood met his mind and my desire for what I believe to be the quintessential American experience. My white friends had were two vastly different things. To Jamal being father was a black and white equation about putting forth the hard work through whatever means necessary so that the family could survive. In America. In theory, it should have been easier to do that. That's why he emigrated here. I never saw it that way. As, a kid in New Jersey. Suburb Life Wasn't just about survival was a kind of privilege I never realized I had. A wonderful relationship to be about playing catcher riding bikes together. I WANNA show. Maldonado. My friends and teach me how to shave. I. Want someone to talk to girls and tell me where babies came from. That was America I thought. Especially, considering the experience by white. Childhood, friends were having. where I wanted less for mother in many ways, less pressure west interference, I badly wanted more from Jamal. The cultural gap was widened further by my father's pride and being an immigrant. I saw his pride as a burden especially in middle school and high school were feeling like an outsider was a constant hardly anyone in class. Look like me. If they did I bet I would have spent more time with other parents murder from all and my assumptions about race and parenting would have been different these feelings. Especially, the ones I had equating whiteness with being American weren't justified irrational with benefit of time. I can say they were wrong. The truth is that I'm not sure the my relationship Jamal ever had a chance. Even if my parents had had a stable healthy marriage, the gap between my father and me may have been insurmountable. He didn't understand what it meant to be an American child going up in Nineteen Ninety S I didn't understand what it meant to be h house India, most important. I didn't understand what it meant to be a father from India to millennial son here in the united. States. He certainly made a good faith effort, but the execution was and boy did I, resent him for? Year. After year, my dad's showed up to my little league game about understanding the rules. Struck, out early and often. One time I swear, I, saw him standing up cheering for me after I struck out. I am fairly positive that he thought that's what was supposed to happen. My son doesn't have to endure the punishment of the basis. But my career didn't make much sense to an electrical engineer from India. He knows that I'm a journalist and a writer for the New York Times. But what that means has always been something into him. Shock understood a bit more but not too much growing up the television she approved of me watching outside of seventh heaven. Of course, was the news. She didn't understand what into broadcast but she loved Peter Jennings ABC. She liked twenty twenty or sixty minutes. She was a news consumer in away. My father wasn't. This, probably wasn't content, but her appreciation for the news, probably nudge me toward being reporter. My first started at. Boston University, my goal was to become a sports broadcaster. I want to be the next Bob Costas and call NBA Finals Games on television. I was never good at sports. So this was the next best thing. When I watch games on television, I would move the television broadcast games myself. I would do the same when playing video games. Say initial ninety, four on second genesis. Eventually I became a bit bored by sports and shifted to hard news. I was a sports director of the college radio station at Bu and found myself disillusioned by just how regular athletes are. They sometimes wanted to show up late for work and act? Ranki look mother, they're just like us. After college my career took several detours. Let's call them forced detours including stops at the Boston Globe dinner. Renew my contract NBC, a layoff Aljazeera, a layoff. And Major. League. Baseball. This was fought. I landed the job of a lifetime and twenty fifteen. I was tapped to be a campaign reporter for CBS, News. One of the candidates? I was initially assigned Donald J trump. My initial reaction? I won't have to cover that guy at all..
"rabindranath tagore" Discussed on Omnibus! With Ken Jennings and John Roderick
"Who for most of his life, had almost nothing to do with US presidential scandals, and then at the end really did in a surprising way that I think well. Surprise and delight that amazing and a bath. He! Rarick was interested in kind of the heritage of Russian nece and medieval Russian this in particular fascinated by Russia's land. This is something. Comic Common Slavic Brethren. Believe in kind of an idea muscular. Russian past that we don't know much about in this hemisphere well, and I don't think I, think part of the reason is, they don't know much about because it's largely made up. And there is a there's always been a Russian identity crisis that I think. There's been quite a study about it, but you know they think of themselves alternately as descendants of the Greeks true, you know true. Like torchbearers of Greek ideals, but then also maybe they're kind of rugged Central Asian. Haya near the ancient reuss of of Ukraine or the descendents of a lot, maybe some. Stuff with wolves? Jason Yeah. The the Vikings came down the Volga, and it does look a lot of I've looked at a lot of Eric's art. He was a Russian symbolist of the. Late Nineteenth early twentieth centuries. Part of the world of art which was a magazine, started by Sergei Thiago left the Great Ballet Impresario. The Russian symbolism is largely a poetic movement lot of lot of poets and some musicians. He was the great painter and looking at his early work. Celebrate history so much so that it reminds me. Like an American culture, it almost looks like the boy's own book illustrations of like an NC Wyeth type where you've got kind of these colorful slavic looking ships with maybe dragons on the prowse plying the Volga. A lot of maybe like when there's religious subjects, the angels and the Clerics Whatnot are. Drawn in the vernacular I Russian icon painting, Kinda Flat Gold Leaf Look, is it arts and crafts era kind of is because of that icon painting influence a lot. There's very limited subtle pallets which in a way looks very modern, and maybe it's why it reminds me of magazine. Illustration Very. Kind of strikingly graphic. Not in the sense of explicit, but just in the sense of designee right for work of that period. So, is it a? Is it decorative art? Yes, it's beautiful. Strong design sense strong. Sense of geometry is the impression I get, but also just the subject matter is. Bearded clerics and sailors and boatmen in herdsmen, doing Russian things in a kind of nondescript past. Oh, Russian things. They're doing Russian things they do look like I'm see I'm looking at them now. They do look like sort of a well. How would you describe it? I have a friend in Anchorage who does Alaska Art Work Yeah and a lot of it is about wolves and the northern lights and skiing. It's not that different from Remington or these painters of the American west with big skies, and a lot of show dramatic, shadowing on rugged mass, purple Purple Light as the Sun dips below the Mesa or whatever, but there is a kind of like what seems almost native American By that I mean kind of twentieth century appropriation of Native American art turned into fine art in. In. Towel House I can see like a primitivism. And I think that's probably in line with the heritage of you know who who were are, Kramer, are mythic ancestors right? Wow, interesting! I! Don't want any of this art. I Don, I don't dislike it. It's like it's like a really lushly painted. Prints valued panel over your couch. Maybe that's exactly what you mean about it. That's not. One hundred percent. Actually. rarick was still living in Russia at the time of the Russian revolution. I think he actually emigrated to lake. Ladoga in Finland for maybe health reasons. His health wasn't good and as a result. Says Finland is is where you go. Oh, they probably had baths, mineral baths, and the clear mountain, air, or something I, don't know what they had in any case. When the Bolsheviks took over, he stayed there, and he was skeptical because he was anticommunist, but he was skeptical the Russian revolution, because he didn't think they were good for the arts. Although you'd think somebody like this, producing these beautiful heritage murals would be exactly who lennon would want. Yeah, they're not far from socialist realism I agree. And I think he actually was considered for different commissions positions. But in the end, he decided to stay out of Russia, and he ended up never actually going back. That's a pity. After nine hundred eighteen, he bounced around between. Finland and eventually London, and then eventually as we shall see the United States and points even. Further removed further removed from the United States his words hell. You say if you can imagine. We're in the middle of the map as long as the map is not produced in. His wife Helena at the time became very interested in eastern religions. Boy this was very faddish especially when he got to London. When your wife becomes interested in eastern religions that spells the end, so no matter what his issues were, he probably wanted just to go to Finland for the waters and she'd be like honey. Have you tried yoga? Yeah, that's right. She was really into Buddhism, which was not uncommon at the time and got him excited in reading. The, bog, avowed GITA and the police of Rabindranath Tagore and he also started to get interested in. Eastern thought. Cou. He Had Not yet been published, loved the Zen and the art of motorcycle. Good good. That's great. I'll do an omnibus on them. Cycles hadn't been invented, so it was like the art of sleigh maintenance. It was the Russian version, but once he got to London, of course, the office control every element of high society at that time, and so he easily runs with kind of this kanawha stick..
"rabindranath tagore" Discussed on The Ziglar Show
"Stronger Robin. This'll be interesting as we just did year recorded the main show and of course spent a lot of time talking about habits so I know these are well thought out for you so I'm eager to hear the specifics of your habits and again as I talked about the one. What is the goal you have for yourself that I'm sure changes in each category over time Especially in the area of health will start there. What are the things that you desire to be at the level that you want to be at in your physicality in your in your health and wellness and then what are the things that you do from an exercise and nutrition standpoint to achieve that? Sure so Kevin. You know what's really important to me is energy. I think in many ways energy as business person as a leader as a human being is more orden than even intelligence because you can have great ambitions but if you don't have the energy to execute on them nothing really happened so I I really tried to manage by energy and protect my energy. Another goal is to extend life as long as possible and just to be as healthy as absolutely possible. I appreciate that managing and protecting an injury. That was the key to professional cycling. You gotTa keep it to where to where you needed at the end. So what are the habits that you do or routines that you have for your for exercise and nutritional aspects so one of them no surprises the five? Am Club victory. Our Twenty Twenty twenty formula as you know Kevin the first pocket is so. I love running on a treadmill. I'm a huge fan of spinning. Because you can really through the sweat released. Bdo neff brain derived neurotrophic factor which promotes neurogenesis and repairs brain cells damaged by stress. While I'm running I also hydrate even right now. I mean I just. Hydration is incredibly important metabolic function. It's an incredibly important to cognition. And it's I think it's incredibly important for detoxing so the morning routine and making sure I exercise. Treadmill spinning is very valuable. I also try to do weight because you know that strong core is very important. also took not giving any any Medical Advice Uber Vitamin C. And a strong supplementation program has kept me. Just throw these years of traveling very strong so good supplementation programs to meet the to massage protocol. I talked about the five. Am clubs saved my life? Which IS NEAT massages? So powerful to release talks ins to keep me peaceful to Release tension and stress just very powerful What else would I say sunlight? Something that I don't think it's talked about enough but I try to Sunbathe for twenty minutes to release the Vitamin D. Fresh air like just getting out in the woods woods close by powerful time in nature and the final thing is I would say on area or habit number one of physical and nutrition. I I really am a big fan of fasting. Yeah it throws a human body into a state called a toffee which is really powerful for building. Your immunity fasting also keeps my mindset. Very clear you talked about energy. I fast and gives me incredible energy once I start eating that I feel like taking a nap and the last thing I would say is I. Try to clean a try to avoid processed foods and vegetables. Good strong protein as much as possible. Yes and as we're recording this during the epidemic of the corona virus. That's what I thought his fasting Good Three Day fast. You don't eat anything. Save some food and you don't go to the bathroom you'll need toilet paper here either. Way a good habit family and friends or you can just say relationships and I liked that too. I've not talked about that often. And a goal scenario with my guess. What is a goal you at hold up? This is what I want for relationships and then do you have any specific habits that you're employing to keep them where you want them. This might be a little counter intuitive but the most important relationship is our relationship with ourselves in so many people can say well. You know I'm I'm all for my family. I'm all for my team for my clients. I don't have time for myself. And it's almost as if that's an expression of well that would be selfish. I actually think caring for your four interior empires in the five. Am Club hearts sentenced. Soul set builds. A world class for relationship is not selfish. Itself lasts because if you don't you're not at your best mentally emotionally physically spiritually. You're nothing for your family your depleted for your customers. Your unhelpful. To Your neighbors. You are empty for society so that the goal is to build a strong self relationship because that is the key to other relationship in terms of family. I would say I want to build a relationship of authenticity deep. Love along with happy memories magical moments so that when I'm gone my family would say he was alight. He was a protector. He was a great family leader and he was also someone who created some very fun time for us that I will replay and listen to again and I am grateful that tens of thousands of people will hear that one right there. I love that I've never had that response of the relationship with self. I'm fervent about that one because I ran aground because of my backwards thinking on that my altruistic. I'm GonNa pour out and poor until I was empty. So thank you. Robin mental is the next spoke and again. I've not asked it in this way. Is there a mental goal mental measuring? Stick you have yourself and then. What are the things that you employ to do that? My mental goal would be the mindset of a navy seal blended with the mentality of for Spartan Warrior with a little bit of Kobe Bryant. You know mental focus agility and intensity pulled into that I I love it I love it. It gives me a great visual picture right there on the Spartan. You've come back that you mentioned that in the first one is well appreciate it. You know it's we are in a time if incredible volatility and you know the Spartan mothers used to say to their kids. Come back on a shield. Come to the Torius or you know. Don't come back at all and I think through our morning routine and our evening rituals and our daily practices by bullet proofing. Our mindsets. And I know we're GonNa talk about some tactics but then what most of the world sees is tragedy. We we can see as an opportunity to serve to be more helpful to navigate the store that you come back. I think you said it. Come back victorious maybe I paraphrase it. Come back victorious or on a shield reminds me of the old. I don't remember who said it. The man in the arena quote. The glory goes to them. Not The spectacular. Say The spectator out there. But whoever's in there getting bloodied at least making an effort go succeed or fail. I love the perspective. I believe. It was Theodore Roosevelt's thank. You run the arena in the arena. That's it you got it. Financial is the fourth spoke financial goals there. Obviously you've done well in that area but some some goals you have there. And then what are the consistent habits that you employ now or maybe have employed in the past? Now get you where you are now. Sure I have again. Maybe a contrarian take on well. I've worked with billionaires and NBA Stars and many of the Super Rich as their mentor. For Twenty four years and I found a lot. There are a lot of rich people. Money is all they have and so I would say wealth is a few things I acknowledge you know. Having money in the bank is provide freedom but I want to offer cure many listeners and viewers say being able to buy what you want is well being able to do. Great things for your family is well. Feeling that you're free is well. There are so many super rich people who suffer from not enough nece addiction. There's a a story I talked about in the five. Am Club they were Joseph. Heller in Kurt Vonnegut too great authors were at a cocktail party at the home of a long island financier and I think it was Heller. Lookit Kurt Vonnegut he. What do you think you know? Our host made more money yesterday than you're GonNa make all your years of future royalties and the other author replied to his buddy. He said well. That's okay I have something the billionaire would never have and I can Keller said what's that we said the feeling that I have so I would say wealth is is your health. Wealth is feeling you have enough. Wealth is having a good family. Life while is long walks in nature. A mountain bike rides in terms of some specific tactics to bring value to your people. I would say live simply especially now I would say live within your means. I would say be masterful at your craft because the marketplace rewards mastery even in times of volatility. People will always pay for the best I would say. Keep your keep your deathblow again. I'm not giving any financial advice but you know. Low Leverage is a wise thing and then I think tithing in philanthropy unbelievably powerful on as a way to not only do good for other people but increase your own spirits. And you're hopefulness in your own happiness. In this time. We always feel good where we do. Great things for other people. Well I appreciate that. That is a primary label attributed to you is humanitarian. I think that's one that everybody listening here desires to embody as well spiritual is the fifth. Spoke tell us about that area my my I think you know I I wanNA build my relationship with God. I want to build intimacy with my greatest self versus might go itself. I actually have a distinction in my work. Are we have our hero excels in our go excels in our ego excels or about? You know we're thinking about ourselves. I want to build a strong core where I'm an instrument of service to as many people as possible so spirituality demean me as a great relationship with God a great relationship with my strongest sell in being a humble. Serve it to as many people as possible. That is very dear to my heart but my dad. When I was growing up used to use the words of Rabindranath Tagore. Who's degrade button? Golly poets. My Dad used to say Robin when you were born you cried while the world rejoiced said son. Live your life in such a way that when you die to world cries while you rejoice at the beautiful that is beautiful heroic versus ego itself. I've not heard it put that way I will that henceforth you are listening to the Ziglar Show and our habits episode with Robin Sharma. Next in the career spoke is when Robin talks deeply about the power and assessing of mentors that I believe will be really convicting to you..
"rabindranath tagore" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"This week we put out a playlist of some of our otter and mostly more upbeat episodes out of the Archive. We called that playlist offbeat history with this ongoing coronavirus pandemic. We thought it might give folks who are practicing some social distancing or sheltering in place or otherwise having some more time in relative isolation a little something extra to help pass the time. and several of our colleagues, other shows in our IHEART podcast family have done the same thing, and so we've launched new feed for all of those, so it's all of those pandemic collections. It's called the best of stuff, and you should be able to find it wherever you get your podcasts, and that will move on to today's Saturday classic. It is World Poetry Day so today we're sharing an episode from the Archive. That's on poet Rabindranath Tagore. who was a Bengali poet and was the first Asian Nobel laureate? This episode originally came out on November. Twenty, second two, thousand ten, and it is from previous hosts. Sarah and Dobalina so enjoy. Welcome to stuff. You missed in History Class A production of iheartradio. And welcome to the PODCAST I'm Sarah. Dowdy and I'm very happy to be joined by my new CO host today. I'm Dobalina Chakraborty I will be joining Sarah and talk to you about history stuff with you. Yeah, Dobalina is the homepage editor here at how stuff works so she basically programs the whole homepage every day, so if you've ever visited the site, you've seen Lena's handiwork. Yes, and I hope you've clicked on lots of. Quick, lots of links. That's what we all want you to do, but Dobalina. Why don't you give us a little background on this topic and explain why he picked today? Sure well today's topic. Is a little bit maybe appropriately, maybe inappropriately personal to myself. My parents are from India their Bengali and our topic today is Robin to Gore who is a well known Bengali figure, probably best known for being the first Asian Nobel laureate. And it's one hundred fiftieth anniversary of his birth, so it's been the news a lot lately. Yeah, there's a lot of stuff going on to celebrate his birthday Sierra including the coca, the film festival has showed movies that are based on his works People are performing his plays. School children are performing his songs and his dance dramas, and so it's a big to do. There's a traveling train which seems like probably the best part of the celebration. In my opinion, the traveling train indeed awesome. It is visiting cities throughout India until next May and each car features kind of a different aspect since featuring mostly arts type stuff, the other celebrations Argon Museum on the move, essentially exactly great but a Lotta people don't really appreciate how. Just how much of an accomplished artist this guy was! How much of an accomplished poet he was! He was a singer a philosopher. In politics. He was an educator, a reformer He wasn't a politician exactly, but I mean his influence. There is pretty great, too. He he just touched on so many different things kind of. A. Kind of inspiring when you start looking at his life and also sort of makes you feel like. Not Up to that what? Right so his work in the political arena and his reformation efforts that you mentioned last. Those are probably the things that are lesser known about a most people know about his arts. His involvement in the art scene in India all his contributions. There's far songs plays dramas. Everything goes, but. I think that people don't know what contributed as far as politics. Lenny's. He's not that well known in the West at all so I. Mean we have a lot to explore? Even things is famous for an India. Definitely one of the things that he is famous for that will take a look at today. He was knighted by the British government, and some accused him of being appropriate or shall lead us. There's some controversy around that night to talk about a little later. We will but really what we're going to look at. It is just was he a national astronaut was this just a different approach to nationalism for him his involvement in politics. And look at his renunciation of the of the knighthood, and what surrounded that? So before we get into that? Let's look at his beginnings. He was born, may sixth eighteen sixty one in Calcutta into a well to do well educated very artistic progressive family. Yeah, he was really exposed to a lot as a kid, too. I mean his family would have been reading Sanskrit and ancient Hindu taxed in Persian literature and known Islamic tradition, so imagine it this real melting pot in his home of learning and. Just a lot of intelligent discussion I imagine definitely I think it was unique to any culture the time and Let's talk about that time a little bit. It was during British rule in India, when he was born and his family. The Gore's they were very active in the Bengal renaissance it, which was basically a movement that began in the mid eighteen sixties to protect national culture. It was really to preserve the local culture. The arts all the things that has family wanted to celebrate the traditional heritage and it was a response to English. So they would throw festivals every year. That featured Indian songs and poems and dances, and you mentioned wrestling match. Earlier I thought that was kind of surprised during in there, but hey, it's a part of culture and. The Arts with a little wrestling boards aspect of culture I like sports. So in addition to being involved in the yearly cultural event. To Gore's father wgn off to Gore. He was very involved in something. Called the Brahma Samaj the Roma was basically of movement within Hinduism, which was established around nineteen, twenty, eight, or so, and it was an attempt to reform Hinduism. What I mean by that is that it incorporated some aspects of Christianity it denounced things like polytheism and idol worship, and also denounced the caste system so through this they were trying to enact some sort of social reform, but it never really became widely popular. Yeah, Yeah I mean it even though I. Guess it's still technically around today. It didn't really grow much past the Twentieth Century or the Early Twentieth Century Yeah. It's definitely recognized as a movement within Hinduism but I don't think it reached. Maybe the heights that to Gore's father wanted it to. The BRAHMA SMUDGE movement it did lose steam the twentieth century, but the important thing about that is that we can see into Gore's life that it was combining these and western ideals that will see kind of throughout his development, and in his work and his philosophy, so that's the beginnings of that I guess yeah, but I mean if we're talking about his childhood intellectual life aside He was Kinda lonely that close to. To his parents? This is according to his own memoirs His Dad was gone a lot traveling on business and some people have suggested that he just didn't really get much attention and love growing up and sort of felt neglected in that respect. Yeah, he did. He just give us a accounts of traveling with his father and his adolescence, but from what we can tell. He wasn't really that close to anyone. Robie is he was sometimes called wasn't really close to his folks but that might have been a good thing because he was given a lot of freedom, because of that he was given a lot of space to develop creatively into right, and that's exactly what he did. Yeah, so he started writing at a very young age and kept on doing it over. Over six decades ended up writing about two thousand five hundred songs and twenty eight volumes of poetry, drama opera, short.
"rabindranath tagore" Discussed on CRUSADE Channel Previews
"Being this really fascinating journey can you? Can you take the journey in kind of give us just a quick summary sort of the executive summary of his intellectual journey which takes him through sort of Hindu Mr through the maths and Sciences through Hindu mysticism and then back to his Catholicism part of the film? I'm very proud of this because you can't really understand Wolfgang unless you understand this incredible journey to which you alert when he applied to cornell he was asked and this is a memorable moment in the film they said. Why do you want to study physics? And he said I wanted to study physics because I am convinced that that is the she into understanding the world and then he has this wonderful little pause with this sort of ironic little Wolfgang Unions Smile. And he says it is to say I changed my mind. The interim so at the the reason that he changed his mind in the interim is that he that he encountered the Super Metro he encountered this initially through an encounter with the Hindu poet. Rabindranath Tagore at recounts his first exposure to this incredible edible powered his brilliant by one of the great pleasures. I had from researching this project was to read to Gore. He's brilliant and he entered a world that transcended the domain of mathematical physics. All of a sudden with something he never been in touch with before and then he was raised nominally athlete but there was no. This was Austria at the end of the empire. This was not exactly a mystical Catholicism. Let me put it that way. And he was so taken by this experience of something beyond the mathematical and the physical that he became a true seeker after after wisdom went to India and actually intended to attach himself to. Asab you and make the profession. Try and climb the ladder of Acetic Religion in India. And there's A. There's a story to be told there long story short. He did not do so and he did not do so because there was always one question. he was never able to get a addressed to his satisfaction. Even though he went to I mean this guy went deep into the Himalayas. He went to the Latte asked. Living Out of tradition upon thousands of years and his question was always this. He said if I could if I complete this course if I complete this ascetic Rise ones when I get there is anything left of of the men is there and he said he was invariably told no so. It's this sort of Nirvana the annihilation that we get all this. These in a Pantheon systems listening congress in the crusade. Premium Channel Partner Veritas Radio Network. This brother Marie. And we're interviewing my guest. Rick Delano retirement restoring the cosmic icon with Wolfgang Smith. So he turned off as it were. He's disappointed by this concept of annihilation that he's that nothing exists of the man. Afterwards he describes it as the drop of two in the ocean. Though the the gets no larger and the DUDEK disappears. What what was it? All for the what fascinated me was that even even so he comes back. He's in. He's in the United States. Eventually he gets married to Teja Who was a doctoral student? I I I guess at Oregon State right where he was teaching. That's correct and and she was a Catholic and she was a pious Catholic. He describes her as far as a deep deep deeply rooted Catholic and now she made no overt efforts to to convert him but she he finds out later that a Franciscan priest and Tara are both pranksters conversion but he kept looking for wisdom. And he's reading. I was W- apparently what converted him was reading two books. The commentary in Saint John by Saint Augustine in its Gospel. And then the the life of Saints Catherine Tanna. Which is its ECLECTIC reading. I mean the the the the no this. This is the profound thing. What what's what's what's profound here and again. I'm very proud of this. In the film is an indispensable presence in this film. She died the day that we were originally scheduled. I knew who with Wolfgang was the day. That tail left this world dear so I was never able. I was never able to meet her. What it was incredibly apparent to me that that this formation of this man owes so much to to the simple prayerful beseeching of heaven almost like Saint Monica. You know praying year after year after year with the Franciscan Father Giovanni and I know Wolfgang well enough to know that you would have been absolutely wasting your time to try and argue into. It would have been a complete waste of time. He's way too smart not going to happen so they were smart enough to take it to the supernatural and they laid it at the feet of Heaven and this was how he was eventually brought into contact with these. Two seminal works. The commentary on Saint. John's Gospel of Saint Augustine and Catherine of Sienna and these two things working in concert did the trick because what what had the Hindus done for Wolfgang they had set him up finally to understand what it is about our holy faith that is found absolutely nowhere else. And it is the incarnation the income son of God. This was the answer to everything that he had been looking for. All of a sudden his Christianity was not something inherited or something you know that he did on Sunday when he was a little boy. And you know all the smarter. People sort of snickered added in the meantime. Here's where he confronted the living. Lightning the power of our holy. Faith is in the incarnation of the son of God because now that Christ has become mad it becomes as the fathers would say it becomes possible for man to be deified..

"Your. The world's largest public book. It's packed full of people the young and the old men and women the rich and the poor, and they're all flicking through their favorite books. He authors get the sort of idealization that is normally reserved the film stars and cricket as so what's capturing the redesign attention this year. Well, the most popular genre a self help books. I must pick up some for myself and see what all the fuss is about. You can also get books in many different languages on the shelf in front of me. I can see some in English others in Hindi whilst there were also novels in Bengali and Tamil, but it is the English ones that are the most sought after dipiazza g is one of the organizers of this event, he told me that many parents do not want their children reading Hindi or Bengali books to them. They have to be an English. So you'll find that rather than reading the Nobel prize winning. Poet Rabindranath Tagore in his native Bengali parents are making their children read his poems in English. Instead, it is a status symbol he adds. If you're seeing with an English book, it's a sign that you're moving up in the world. So you'll find some people here with an English novel in their hands. Even though they cannot speak word of the language. It's ridiculous. He adds. So why are people still in love with books when in other parts of the world, they're going out of fashion, author sandy ROY says one of the reasons is rising literacy rates every year? There are more and more Indians who can read. So that means the market is growing, and it's going to grow a lot more. This country's literacy rate is currently seventy five percent, which means that over the next few years. There are still millions of people who will be looking to buy their first novel. The many reading is a new experience. So this still in love with it. Another reason is poor internet. Penetration. India may have the second highest number of internet users in the world. But only one in four people have access to it bookseller, Anita Dasgupta says that many people in rural India have no choice, but to read every time they go online at just crashes. She has a big smile on her face as she tells me that because it's great for her business that of course will change over time. But for the moment, it means that more than two million people attend this book fair every year in a world where many people attending away from books hearing, call cut at the still an essential part of this city's culture, it was best summed up by young customer who told me books that like oxygen. We have to have them. Otherwise, we cannot survive thousands of people at this book. They're thinking exactly the same way. Rahul tandem. Sometimes they say the darkest hour is the hour before dawn. But of course, without a watch. We can't know whether there's a dark our still to come, and that's pretty much the position Britain is in with Brexit. It's attempt to leave the European Union. Our political correspondent, rob Watson says certainly things do look dark last week began with the cloud giant Nestle announcing it was cancelling plans to build a new model in the UK in parts because of uncertainty over BRAC says the Bank of England slashed its economic growth forecast. And we learned that financial services companies have already moved around one trillion dollars worth of staff operations and customer funds out of the UK to Europe. Meanwhile, with less than two months to go with still no clearer as to how the UK will leave the issue. Yes, talks have resumed between Britain and Brussels. But. Without any sign of a breakthrough just as the division and deadlock continues and domestic British politics it likely boils down to this will the EU offer. Theresa May just a little extra concession at the last minute, and will ultimately MP's be so terrified of either a nodal Brexit Brexit a tall that they vote again at the last minute for something very like Mrs Maes original tale. I guess we'll find out soon enough maybe, but I want to end with the most talks about moments of the week. Yes. The comments from the president of the European Council. Donald tusk that there was a special place in hell for those who had promoted Brexit without. And I quote, even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely it predictably divided opinion in the UK with Brexit is saying it was comments like this that made them. Glad the UK was getting the hell out. Sorry. I couldn't resist that while. Remain said Mr Tusk was simply telling it like it as the theatrics. And the politics of the blame game aside for me, the exchanges were sobering reminder of something far more profound. Namely that in many ways, the UK and the EU are a bouncer become rivals and competitors. And that is a very big deal. Indeed, arguably, the most profound change in European politics since the end of the Cold War, rob Watson, that's it from the world this week for now if you've got any thoughts on what we've done or you'd like us to do.

"Cottrill frontline on BBC World Service. They came from Punjab and Tamil Nadu Bihar and at the process to fight for the empire. It's estimated approximately one and a half million Indian soldiers served in World War One in Egypt Gallipoli and on the western front an estimated seventy five thousand gave their lives Jew in the great war. History has mostly forgotten those sacrifices, but essentially later the memory of those servicemen lives on in the poetry and prose written during and after the conflict. I spoke to the literary historians Dr shunned the Jalil and professor Shantanu dance about India and the subcontinent responded to the conflict through literature. Moth Meghan decided there ought to our freedom. Lies on the soil of France. They told that India's war contribution would be rewarded not by independent data real nationalism. But by dominion status. It would still be. Under empire, but it would have more political autonomy. I have Indian heritage my parents grandparents from from the job when I was born in the U K, and I had no idea I'm ashamed to say about the contribution of one and a half million Muslims Sikh and Hindu men from India to Britain's efforts in wobble one. So to meet feels like that is a part of history that hasn't been told I certainly didn't know about absolutely. It's a very important part of history that needs to told it's absolutely fantastic that it is being told at the same time. I think there's a sanitized version of empire going on. We need to tackle head on the brutality of empire. There was forced recruitment in one thousand nine hundred eighteen when men were tied up and forced to recruit this things we never get to know. So at the time, which poets and writers spoke out about the conflicts through their work rotunda. I think the earliest response seems to be a Tagore's Rabindranath Tagore's in December nineteen fourteen Rabindranath Tagore is the body. If India the great Boyd also won the Nobel prize, but she returned later. His boy tree is still song and recited in school assemblies, for instance, in the Indian subcontinent now, he he is writing and using troops from the Indian caste system from one of the Indian epics called the Mahabharata and he's linking European mercantile interests with the expansion of the buyer, and he's writing I according here business is now no longer trade and commerce. It is now married to the empire wants the merchant owned material things. Now, he owns human beings the difference between then and now is only the times when the king and country will one the empire Bill does a now the traders who indulge in import and export in Faulk on us the world the best war. Room that they go wrote. It's not about the first World War. It was written ten years before the first World War, and it absolutely envisages. The first full work is writing it on a last evening of eighteen nine the last son of the century sits amidst the blood red clouds of the west and the world wind of hatred. The naked passion of the self love of nations in its drunk and delirium of greed is dancing to the clash of steel and howling. Vengeance the hungry self of the nation's shall burst in a violent so fury from its shameless. Feeding forty made the whole world it's food and licking it. Crunching it and swallowing it in big morsels it swells and swells. He's writing it about the war war, and he says that aggressive expansionist nationalism won't end here. And soon the big Nations European nations. They will fight each other. What did the nineteen gala of India? Serology Naidu right about. Yeah. Russia. Yeah. There's this incredibly sweet and lyrical poem by solution. I do deployments called the gift of India. And so it was and I do as congress leader. She's an activist poet herself. She's been born into privilege has been educated at London and Cambridge. And in this poem, she talks to the rich gifts of Raymond or green or gold that India has given. But she also talks the priceless. Treasures that India's given namely her sons who went marching to the drumbeats of duty and who all sleeping in nameless forgotten graves. It's a lovely poem. But it is the response for loyal elitist. I think we basically need to re conceptualize what we mean by war literature because literature is not just. Literature of the trenches not just the poll Treville Ferdinand secrets assume because I think the fundamental differences that this soldiers may have been non literate, but they're intensely literary because they had grown up on their robust oral culture of Banja. So the moment we step outside Europe. I think we need to completely reframe the word literary on the word boy tick, and I'll just read out a couple of letters because they're full of images metaphors similize because emotion such as horror longing. Love the erupt through this literary troops from sore so announcing written on tenth of July nine fifteen daddy's conflagration all around, and you must imagine it to be a dry forest in a high wind in the hot weather with abundance of dry grass and straw. No one can distinguish it. But God himself this NAACP pastoral poetry because they've grown up in the agriculture world of. One job and the fall back on that to express their intimate feelings the point in the absence of testimonies. I think literature fills in the gaps of history, and that's why we have to engage with literature in because they are the archive of feeling from that age Dr auction the Jalil and professor Donnie, douse.
