The winner takes it all
What is sport in the larger scheme of things? Is it life's little dramas played out on a stage? Perhaps it is one, says NIRMAL SHEKAR, whose players spend their lives pondering victory and defeat.

Of dark clouds and silver linings

SAINATH in the conclusion of a two-part article.

Listening to J. Krishnamurti
J. Krishnamurti was one of the foremost religious thinkers of the 20th Century. Thanks to technology, his teachings are available to us in their pristine form, in CD, audio and videotapes. This gives future generations the opportunity to hear and see the Teacher in the original and also access those perennial solutions to fundamental human problems, writes S. RAMACHANDER.
