I believe most of us think of Norway as a quiet little northern European country, where people are quiet and low-key, where the government provides for citizens' needs and where very little happens that would be considered "newsworthy" in this world where the media gravitates toward negative stories. What a shock to hear about this atrocious crime carried out in cold-blood, killing dozens of innocent people.
Even worse, in my opinion, is that this zealot felt that he was…Continue

Say 'S' to Gandhi
The syllable ‘S’ must be revered as the most favorite one as many of Gandhi’s principles and doctrines start with that letter. Perhaps, most of the words in the Devanagari or Sanskrit language have that sound in the beginning of the word.
The Gandhian Smriti(literature) comprises the words starting with ‘S’ alphabet.
