Birthdays and Life

Here's a couple of shots of my son Nitai's birthday.

birthday:

Nine years ago Nityananda Rama (Nitai) was born in a chilly maternity hospital in Vrindavan, India. We celebrated that day on the weekend with a small get-together with some of his friends, cousins and other relatives.

birthday:

My elder son Caitanya (below), aged 20, is in Jagannatha Puri at the moment, a sacred seaside city on India's eastern coast. He is having a ball, catching up with old friends from his seven-year sojourn at Indian gurukulas (boarding schools).

caitanya:

My daughter Joelene, 26, is in Sydney, poised to give birth to her second child.

joelene and sebastian:

Time rolls on. I'm feeling rather old.

More Famous Last Words

Machiavelli:

Here's a juicy one:

"I desire to go to hell and not to heaven. In the former place I shall enjoy in the company of popes, kings and princes, while in the latter are only beggars, monks and apostles".

- Niccolo Machiavelli, Florentine political theorist, died 1530.
