Our economic slowdown: the government is in denial

After a month or two of living in denial, the Modi government seems to have grudgingly accepted that our national economy has slowed down. Our Finance Minister (FM) Nirmala Sitaraman has held, at the behest of tough taskmaster and No.2 in the government packing order, Home Minister (HM) Amit Shah, several pressers last week, to announce a slew of measures intended to revive public consumption and investment...[By Philip Mudartha]

Back to Bellevision: A journey through diabetes, and neuro-illnesses

If you had heard about my ill-health, you had heard correctly. I was suffering from hard breathing, and breathlessness while walking daily in the morning in the nearby garden. I could not climb stairs at all. I was worried that I may die soon. Driven by worry, my fasting blood sugar skyrocketed to above 300 mg/dl. I constantly thought of the killer disease. The more I worried, the more it pushed me deeper into depression. I couldnā€™t sleep; I used to wake up in the middle...[By Philip Mudartha]

The Heart-wrenching story of Kumpala Selen Preethi Pinto

The Fourth Commandment: Honor thy Father and Mother

After the three basic commandments concerning the just relationship to honor oneā€™s father and mother, the Decalogue contemplates at once the whole gamut of filial relations.

Social Environment as the Nursery of a Personā€™s Upbringingā€¦.

Every human being is born in a family. Traditionally, a family meant husband and wife, at least, besides parents, in-laws, siblings, children and so on. Now-a-days, even though the traditional sense is retained to a certain extent, situations like single parents and separations have become common.Despite all this, it still makes sense to say that every human being is born in a family. This family not only brings up the child into existence, but also nurtures him or her physically, socially,...[By Philip Mudartha]

The joy of growing plants and flowers at home!!

To my mind there is no spot of ground however arid, bare or ugly, that cannot be tamed into such a state as may give an impression of beauty and delight. As an English proverb that says, if you want to be happy for a year plant a garden. A garden requires patient labour and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. Itā€™s true that I have a wide range...[By Francis Saldanha]
