“I am Krishna”- book launch by Deep Trivedi

Aatman Innovations launches ‘I am Krishna – The Master of Mind & Life’ by best-selling author Deep Trivedi

A biography on Krishna’s life as An artist, A Lover, A Politician, A Psychologist, A Businessman, A Visionary, A Spiritual Guru

Chennai: Renowned author and pioneer in spiritual psychodynamics, Deep Trivedi launched his book ‘I am Krishna – The Master of Mind & Life’ today launched. ‘I am Krishna’ is the world’s first attempt at historically documenting the life of one of the world’s most revered personalities – Krishna, a man of flesh and blood that walked the earth several centuries ago. The highlight of the event was the presence of popular Indian actress Ratan Rajput who was in discussion with Mr. Trivedi about the book and his thoughts behind his work.

An undeniably powerful personality, the book depicts Krishna’s personality and his journey from being a cowherd boy to becoming the King of Dwarka. Krishna was the master who knew the art of enjoying life to the fullest even in difficult times and his is a classic example of a Rags-to-Riches story.

When asked about the book, Deep Trivedi, author of the book said“’Krishna’ is a name synonymous with victory and flamboyance, yet he has always been an enigma. Through this book I have tried to bring out the diverse facets of his personality, which otherwise, are difficult or rather impossible to comprehend, in its entirety.”

He further added, “Krishna is such a multi-dimensional personality that there has never been a dearth of names by which he has been addressed such as Vasudeva, Madhusudan, Kanha, a supreme being or the numerous questions asked based on his personality and actions which invariably make people curious about him. This book contains the answers to all these questions, and that has been possible only after a long and thorough study of all the scriptures related to Krishna such as Mahabharat, ShatapathaBrahmana, AitareyaAaranyak, Nirukta, Ashtadhyayi, GargaSamhita, Jataka Katha, Arthashastra, Indika, HarivamsaPuran, Vishnu Puran, Mahabhashya, Padma Puran, MarkandeyPuran and KurmaPuran to name a few.”

Since the author of the book is a pioneer in spiritual psychodynamics, the book depicts the psychology of Krishna at various important points and its subsequent transitions, which makes it clear for the readers as to what he did and why. Written in first person, the book gets Krishna to talk about his life, his thoughts and reasons for doing what he did. Most notably, it tells people that he was not born a god, and that he attained self actualisation from his deeds and actions. Assuming someone as god or destined to be god, shuts all your doors to learning from them and their legendary life whereas Krishna is the only perfect and complete man history has ever witnessed and his life offers a lot to imbibe and learn for everyone.

A lot of guests who were present at the event couldn’t let go of the opportunity of getting their personal copies of the book signed by the author himself and posed next to him and the actress for a memorable photograph.

The book is priced at Rs 399 and available at all leading book stores and e-commerce sites.

MGR Book Launch Images & News

MGR Book Launch Images & News

‘MGR A Life’ , a biography written by R.Kannan on the life of late Superstar/ ex chief minister of Tamilnadu,  Man of all seasons and reasons Mr.M G Ramachandran was published by Penguin publications. Madras book club along with penguin publication organised this event in Kalaivaanar arangam , Chennai. Member of parliment , Mr.Shashi Tharoor have away the first copy of the book to the head of ‘MGR kazhagam’ Mr.R M Veerappan.
“Mr. Kannan,  who has always been a member of Dravidian party has written this book. Kannan,  who worked for the U N worked hard for seven long years to finish and bring out this book. MGR’s early life, Cinema life, political life, his tenure as the chief minister of Tamil nadu, his demi god status, his relationship with Periyar, Anna, Kalainjar, Shivaji ganesan, Kalaivaanar and Jayalalitha has been established so well in this book. Publishing this book now after the historic ‘Jallikattu’ protest seems to be the apt time ” said Penguin publishing’s Chief editor Kamini Mahadevan.
Member of Parliment Shashi Tharoor said, ” I have not seen people come in such huge numbers, like here, for a book release in the north India. Even though I was born in Palakkad, my mother lived in Coimbatore for 15 years. Iam proud MGR also belonged to Palakkad. I am a huge fan of MGR right from my childhood. I have watched many of his movies with my brothers. MGR was the first super star in India to achieve heights in politics. He is the one who changed the Tamilnadu’s electorial political culture of regional party vs national party to regional party vs another regional party. By heart he was a congressman. When he was shot in 1967 his photo of wrapped neck played a huge role in deciding the winner of then state election.
Anna was very impressed with MGR and his ever growing fame. After Anna’s death MGR became a king maker. Kannan has wrote in detail about the poverty MGR has to face in his early life, his image, his forced entry into acting out of poverty and not out of wish, his schemes as a chief minister and his relationship as a mentor  with Ms. Jayalalitha. Expanding kamaraj’s mid day meals scheme was one of the biggest achievements of MGR. He rightly felt an empty stomach will not let a child think about education. He has genuinely inspired me a lot. I request kannan and penguine publications to come up with books on other political stalwarts of South India too and I want Kannan not to stop writing even after coming into public life” ‘Hindu’ Ram said,” just like this book I would like to see such efforts to bring out books on Kalainjar Karunanidhi, Periyar, Annadurai and Kamaraj. It is very important for the author to not be biased while writing biographies. There were times when DMK was laughed and bullied by a political leader. Dravidian parties can never be underestimated. They defeated Congress and came into power in 1967 , there has been no looking back for them ever since.

The mutual respect between political leaders for each other even though being rivals, has gone away after the death of MGR. Once MGR deported JPR from his car when the latter addressed Kalainjar as Karnanidhi. Such was the respect MGR had for Kalainjar even though they blonged to opposite parties. The same way Kalaignar was the first person to come to MGR’s house to pay his last respect when he heard of his death news. MGR worked so hard in politics to become the chief minister. Other Cinema stars who think they can get into politics and reach heights easily,  I must say they are living in a fool’s paradise “Tamil nadu congress head Thirunavukkarasar said , ” Sashi Tharoor said he is happy to see so many people turn out for a book release unlike in North India. This is Tamil nadu where people are so encouraging to such events. Mr. Kannan has not only elaborately wrote about MGR’s early life, Cinema journey and his last days, but also written well about the people who were associated with him. He has given out instances and information that even MGR’s close associates did not know. There was a huge dissatisfaction among the DMK party members when MGR once said Kamaraj is his political leader and Anna is his political guide. When he was a superstar in Movies he got a salary Up to 8 lakhs per movie. He lived like a king. For such a person there is no need to earn through corruption in politics. He was so clean and down to earth . He got joy in giving to others. During the Nagapatinam floods, When he himself got into the field to talk to affected people and ask them what they need, they said  all they want is MGR to be healthy and happy and they are more than happy just to see him and d’int  want anything more , even in such adversity. He was always fondly called ‘vaathiyar’ by the people of Tamil nadu. Jayalalitha was the opposition party leader In 1989. Her alliance with Congress  and the crutial role Rajiv Gandhi played helped her become the chief minister in 1991. One should never under estimate  the role of Congress in Tamilnadu politics. This book is not just about 40 years of MGR’s life it is also about 50 years of Tamilnadu politics “Mr.R M Veerappan said , “MGR produced his first movie ‘Nadodi Mannan’ having gotten a loan of 50 thousand from AVM. It was a blockbuster and he got back in lakhs but he never amassed wealth for himself. During India- China war he donated a huge sum of Rs. 75 thousand to President Jawaharlal Nehru for which he got a return letter from the president thanking MGR for his gesture and help. Not many people know this. But Kannan has not only written about this incident but also published that letter in this book. MGR has had arguments with Anna. But not even once Anna has any issues with MGR. Even though MGR was a Keralinte by birth he never encouraged having people from that region around him. M G R in his movie Nadodi Mannan itself told what all good will be done if and when a Dravidian party comes into power. Anna appointed a younster named Srinivasan to contest against Kamaraj in the 1967 elections so that kamaraj can win easily. That is when we released MGR ‘s photo from the hospital getting treatment. When people started calling DMK as MGR’s party Anna said it is a pride that people think of DMK that way. MGR was gv instrumental in DMK’s growth. Even though MGR is no more , his fame will live forever ” . On behalf of Madras book club,  Mr. Muthaiah gave the thanks giving speech.

POLITICS PREVENTS ; LITERATURE PROVIDES INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF POET VAIRAMUTHU AT THE KANNADA CONFERENCE

Poet Vairamuthu was the Chief Guest at the Kannada Literary and Cultural Conference organized by the Department of Kannada, University of Chennai along with Kannada SahityaParishath and released the Souvenir of the Conference.  His inaugural address is given below:

          “Politics and religion divides Men.  Whereas Art and Literature merges the hearts.  That’s why I very much appreciate and welcome this Kannada Literary and Cultural Conference.

          The Tamilians and Kannadigas are the children of the Dravidian culture.  Researches have disprovide the contention that the language of Kannada has evolved from Sanskrit.  Language of Kannada has evolved from Tamil, indeed.  The world of knowledge has accepted the fact that with changing time, Sanskrit merged itself gradually in Kannada which brought in various changes in the form of Kannada and it evolved as yet another language.

          For ages and ages, many Tamil words are being used as Tamil only even until the present time. Hand – leg – eye – father – mother – sister – annan – virtue – fish – knowledge – the list goes on and many such words are one and the same in Tamil as well as Kannada, in terms of their phonetics and semantics.

          We cannot forget that the Jnanpith  Awardee Shri Masti Venkatesha Iyengar is a Tamilian, and a native of Srirangam, Tamil Nadu.  At the same time, the famous Tamil poet Gnanakoothan is a native of  Karnataka.

          The Tamilians and the Kannadigas have differed in the issue of water but never had any difference of opinion in exchange of Literature.  Whenever we read ‘Akkamadevi’ of Kannada Literature, the voice of Love of our Tamil ‘Andal’ is heard in our ears, as a melody.

                      “KozhalinidhuYazhinidhuEnbaThammakkalThothal Sol Kelzathavar” – thus by the transliteration, the Kannadiga brothers have spread the fame of our Thirukural.  In the same way, Tamilians have translated ‘Sarvakngyar’, the Kannadiga Seer.  That’s why the statue of Thiruvalluvar was erected in Karnataka and one for ‘Sarvaknar’ in Chennai was erected, for establishing cultural exchange between us.

Such a tradition of cultural exchanges are not something new among us.  The famous King KarikalChola married his daughter to the Kannada King SriVikramawho is from the lineage of Ganga dynasty.  If we consider this point, then the Tamilians and Kannadigas are matrimonially related as “In-Laws”.  Hence, we ask you to provide the required water of Kavery to us, rightfully and legally.  That’s why we request you not to build a Reservoir at Mekedaatu and invite you to build a bridge with the Language, together.

          Politics prevents; Literature provides.  So, let us not approach problems with a politicized brain but with the tender Literary heart.  I strongly believe that this Conference is a great effort in building the cultural bridge between the Tamilians and the Kannadigas”.

          Manupaligar, President of the Kannada SahityaParishath, Prof. SivakumarSalya, Prof. R.V.S. Sundaram, University of Pennsylvania,  Kannada Poet ThotharangaGauda, Prof. Thamizselvi, Department of Kannada and students of the University have participated in the Conference.

The Indus Challenge – Synopsis

Bharat is in chaos. While the kingdoms fight each other, Alexander’s forces gather for the assault, their leader lured by tales of supernatural weapons and the elixir of immortality. Only one man can save the subcontinent from domination by the Greeks: the young Chandragupta Maurya, trained under the aegis of the ‘dark brahmin’, Chanakya. When an ancient seal is found, sharing the secrets of the brahmastra, the redoubtable weapon of the Mahabharat, it is up to Rudra, young commander of the Mauryan Nava YuvaSena and lifelong friend and confidante of Chandragupta, to decode it. Along with his fellow commandos, and with the able guidance of his guru, Rudra embarks on a quest that takes him from the snowy peaks of the Himalayas to the seas of Rameshwaram, hunting the clues that will lead him to the brahmastra. On the way, he meets the Chiranjivis, ancient beings tasked with divine duties, and learns the secrets behind his own birth, and his mysterious powers. But Rudra must be careful, for not all enemies were dispersed with the death of the mighty Alexander. Treachery lurks in the home, and when Rudra is framed for the attempted murder of his sovereign, he must pull every trick at his disposal to reveal the enemy, and save his kingdom from plunging, once more, into bloodshed and chaos. A historical, mythological adventure story, The Indus Challenge is sure to appeal to readers interested in the storied past of India, and the legends woven into its soil.
