On the auspicious fifth waning moon cycle during  winter
Season  in the holy land of India, in Jagannath Puri Dham,
Effulgence newborn baby boy appeared to father Kedarnath Dutta
And mother Bhagavati Devi. In the British government, Kedarnath Dutta
Was deputy magistrate of the Puri district in Orissa and  superintendent
Of the world famous Lord Jagganath Deva temple.Child was named Bimala prasad .

Later on  to establish preaching centers for the propagation
Of the loving message of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu,

To recite the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra one billion times.
He took almost nine years to complete these numbers.

During the period when Bimala Prasad performed this one billion Nam-Yagna,
Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur and Srila Gaur-Kishore Das Babaji Maharaj,
Spiritual shelters to Bimala Prasad, departed from this world .
Out of their separation, Bimala Prasad felt a lack of shelter and
Decided not to establish any preaching centers but
Continue to chant  Holy Name every day for  rest of his life.

In a morning dream, Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s
Associates appeared before Bimala Prasad and told him:
“You should change your mind and progress to propagate
Loving message of Mahaprabhu.” Bimala Prasad responded
By asking: “But, where is the manpower?” After hearing Bimala’s query,
Sriman Mahaprabhu’s associates promised to send him  manpower.

Paramananda Vidyavinode, Srila Bhakti Pradip Tirtha Goswami Maharaj,
Kunja Bihari Vidyabhusan, Sundarananda Vidyavinode, Vinode Bihari Prabhu,
Pranavananda Das Brahmachari  and others. Bimala Prasad  felt  inspired
To establish preaching centers for spreading the loving message of Mahaprabhu.

Between cast and creed, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna,
Appeared in the form of Sriman Mahaprabhu, took Sanyas,
And became Sri Krishna Chaitanya.

And established a parent center for the entire Sri Gaudiya Math

August thirteenth today is INTERNATIONAL LEFT HANDERS DAY
A day unique to felicitate yet another nice creation of God
Just a little away from the normals! Left handers said to be
More intelligent and industrious than the right handers!

Pity at times some look at the young left handers with contempt
It should be our endeavor to praise their unique usage of their left hand
Left or right, their character and conduct must be great and noble
Their attainments and achievements to be appreciable!

Great celebrities in dozens adorn the world of left handers
Amitab Bachchan, Abishekh Bachchan and Kapil Sharma
Obama, Bill Clinton, Laxmi Mittal and Ratan Tata
Gautam Gambhir, Sourav Ganguly and Yuvraj Singh!

Probably I should not have been born on Thirty First July Nineteen Forty One!
On the seventh day of my birth,  great,  noble  Nobel Laureate Tagore passed away.
Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music,
And Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the early Twentieth century.

Became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature
In Nineteen thirteen. his poetry was viewed as spiritual and Mercurial;

Into Bengali literature,  freed it from traditional models based on  Sanskrit.
Highly influential in introducing the best of Indian culture to the West
Regarded as the outstanding creative artist of the modern India.

Pleasure was mine to translate his Gitanjali in Tamil and published
