Happy Dussehra! : 2 Years Since my First Blog Post

Wow, its already been 2 years(according to the Hindu Calendar)since my first blog post here on this blog! Now that I look back, a lot has changed since then. But this is not the blogpost retrospecting over my past two years(will save it for some other time); its about wishing you all a Happy Dussehra! 🙂

The word Dussehra is derived from the Sanskrit word Dasha-hara – Dasha meaning Dashanan(Ten-Headed) Ravan (The Demon King) and Hara meaning defeat. This day marks Lord Rama‘s victory over the ten-headed demon king Ravana; it also marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demons Mahishasur; thus signifying the victory of good over evil.

So here’s wishing all the readers of my blog, a Happy Dussehra! May you succeed in all your endeavors in life! May God bless you all!

Best Wishes,

Abhishek V. Potnis

It has become a central building block for…

My First Post

Hello Friends !

On the auspicious day of Dussehra, I  publish my first post to this blog. I have started this blog to share my thoughts about various aspects of life – from philosophy to technology. I am a would-be Computer Engineer, so do expect more of tech posts than philosophical ones.

As you may know Dussehra signifies the victory of good over evil. So, with this I wish to personally pass on a message, which I firmly believe in – It is not the external evil that needs to be fought, but the internal evil…….

So friends, Wishing you a Happy Vijayadashami ! May you all prosper and be happy always !
