    A great piece by Kabir. It is amazing that in these ‘pragmatic’ times when consumption is the order of the day, you have recalled Thoreau, his fantastic experimentations, and the meaning of true austerity, ‘voluntary poverty’ and deep silence. No wonder, M.K.Gandhi understood the man. At one level, television channels and newspapers are filled with ‘breaking news’ and catching headlines, spreading the ‘real’ stories about political scams, violence and corruption, and disseminating the mythologies of consumerism through glossy ads. Yet, yours is a magazine that exists like a small but beautiful lamp that illumines the soul, and dares to recall the music of existence. Carry on, friends.
