|Bow our heads before devanagari
Kochi : Standing before the microphone at Vismaya Studio, Mohanlal said, 'Samsritham kevalam upanayana samskaravathaam pandithaanaam thatha devasambandhaanaam stothranaam eva bhasha ithi ya vadathi sa doore thishtathu.' Samskritham was flowing like a river from the tongue that set fire to cinema theatres. Lal was bowing his head once again before the language of the gods which fills the soul of Indian culture.
After the drama 'Karnabhaaram', Mohan Lal has devoted himself once again to the cause of Samskritham through an album prepared by 'Samskritha Bharathi'. Lal introduces the songs in this album in Samskritham itself. Dubbing took place in Vismaya Studio on Friday. Lal found time for Samskritham while shooting for the film 'Run Baby Run' directed by Joshi.
Lal stood before the mike throughout the dubbing. 'It is better to stand while speaking in Samskritham,' he said indicating his respect to the language that is still alive.
There are seven songs in Samskritham in the album. Lal's job was to give lengthy introductions to the songs. He could pronounce even the not-so-easy sentences. Enquiring and understanding the meaning of each word, Lal read out the sentences after knowing the soul of the sentence. Surprised with Lal's performance, both music director B. R. Shankaranarayanan and Samskritha Bharathi general secretary Dr P Nandakumar said in a single tone: 'No one will believe if you say you have not learnt Samskritham.' 'It was his performance in 'Karnabhaaram' and the words he spoke after receiving the doctorate in literature from the Samskritham University that brought us to Mohanlal,' they added.
'Do we not become happy when doing things we have not done before,' says Mohanlal about his Samskritham programme. He surprised the album's backstage workers during the dubbing by remembering long dialogues of 'Karnabhaaram' which he had acted long back.
Through this album, Samskritha Bharathi aims to take Samskritham to the common man and make everyone aware
|Spirituality in modern time.
Its important to regain our old glory. Sri. Suresh Gopi, shared the stage of "Kshetra Samrakhana Samithi" is a positive move. It would encourage our youngsters to involve in social activities.
We need more such steps, ours is a great culture with great history. We have nothing to be ashamed of. We need more role models for our youngsters, who can involve in social and spiritual activities.
We should know to deal with the people when they are down, innocent family all together end up their life. You read the news papers, see the suicide stories and see the realities. It makes us all sad. While suicide is often a desperate last act due to frustration, its hard to see why our people did not have alternatives. Because there was no proper counseling and they feel, they are isolated in their difficult time.
Lack of spiritual education and lack of faith in God and lack of prayers are also the cause of all mental debacles. We have to focus more on social engineering and communal activities to bring all our people together.
Sri. Mahatma Gandhiji had written, "when disappointment stares me in the face of and all alone I see no ray of light, go back to the Bhagawat Gita. I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies and my life has been full of external tragedies and if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of Bhagawat Gita".
I have seen plenty of successful people in our community, entrepreneurs, professionals, celebrities, business personalities, who become famous in career and wealth, they all are strong Hindu believers. So, its necessary for our academician, celebrities, rich and famous to come up and guide our less fortunates, youngsters, who are struggling in uncertainty, lack of confidence and lack of guidance.
We all can pray for a good tomorrow.
What is happening now is a great awakening and we will come back victorious at the end, we will achieve what we dream and the old glories would return b
