  1. Happy to read the post on Basavanna (Jagajyothi Basaveswara as he is reverently referred to in Karnataka) and the illustrative verse composed by him in English version. His short cryptic but simple verses were, in addition to their spiritual /religious content, a treasure house of advice for leading a purposeful life,a code of conduct regulations in short.In one verse he says this mundane life is a work shop of the Creator,one who acquits himself “here” will be accepted “there”,not other wise. In another he says ” if you say ‘Ayya’ it is heaven, if you say ‘Hey’ it is hell. Quintessence of behavioral science!
