A boss connects with the real Boss

After I recently commenced a new job, my boss showed me his book collection, and one of his books was the BBT’s Veda. He couldn’t recall how or when he got hold of the book. I then showed him our Manor promotional video, which he in turn sent to the chairman of our company (the former vice president of Samsung), who then asked to visit the Manor. We arranged a visit during office hours on a Monday, and we spent three hours...

A doubter bends towards Krsna

I'd put a stall close to Chembur Station in Mumbai, which a middle-aged man out of curiosity stopped to check. He looked at the books and, looking at me, said “Madam, why are you wasting time with these books? I do not believe in all those things.” Challenged in this way, I wanted to refute his words, knowing that it's difficult to persuade such a person. I told him, “Sir, I can give you some answers, but...
