  1. On Vasishta’s Curse, the verse said “implored Ganga to woe a man; birth and release us”. I am curious to know how Ganga is going to execute this, since she was punished to live as mortal. It gets really complicated when mortals and deities lives get intertwined. Just mortals alone, and we barely manage to cope, LOL.

    1. Hello Windy,

      Writing in verse leads to many subtle hints that demands much from a reader, I agree. Couple this with my poor abilities as a poet (which I am not – LOL) – and you have a recipe for complications. Perhaps if you reviewed Ganga’s behaviour in episode 1 – it might prove helpful.

      This is also another reason, I plan to launch short stories in my newsletter. Look out for it.

      Keep safe, keep well,

    1. Oh dear, Ian

      How can I ever not want to receive comments from you and all the friends and subscribers who encourage me with their visits. You saw my reply to Windy – I’m snowed under and also made a royal balls up trying to navigate the new WP theme I uploaded. LOL.

      I also miss all the wonderful stories from you and Jane and Jane (in the UK and USA). Once I launch my newsletters, I intend to catch up with all your wonderful offerings.

      Keep safe and keep well,

      1. I hope you are avoiding physical contacts as much as you can Eric. We all have to visit doctors, chemists and supermarkets to survive but it’s risky with this potent virus in spite of government stringent rules now.

  2. Hello Eric,

    I am finally able to post comments on your newly upgraded blog. For a moment, I thought you had blocked me out, LOL. Sought the help of Jetpack and they are extremely patient and helpful.

    I am excited and look forward to reading the short stories of the great epic, Mahabharata. The verses are beautiful but I think I am more a short story person. Will wait for your newsletter.

    1. Hello Windy,

      I’m very sorry that you were unable to post comments on my blog and had to seek help from WP/Jetpack. The error was all on my part. When setting up the new theme for my website, I grappled with the new “block style” formatting and “ticked” some check boxes that prevented any and all comments. WP/Jetpack contacted me and I set it right. My sincere apologies.

      Currently, I’m going flat out to get my newsletters ready and there is a whole lot to do – learning to use new software, designing newsletters and researching, writing and editing the short stories. I hope to launch the newsletters c/w with the first short story in April. Look out for an announcement next Friday.

      Keep safe, keep well,

I like to hear your thoughts
