“Another life-lesson: until our minds are emptied, how will we receive?”
Arun Shourie, DOES HE KNOW A MOTHERS HEART

“To derive joy from simple things; to derive joy from beautiful, giving persons; to give back, indeed to give away; to be thankful, as we are so often told we must be, for small mercies.”
Arun Shourie, DOES HE KNOW A MOTHERS HEART

“The third set of facts that has an immediate bearing on the question at hand is documented beyond doubt by now. And that is the plasticity of the brain. While it used to be believed till even a few decades ago that the human brain stops ‘growing’ once one reaches adulthood, it is a commonplace now that the brain keeps changing, and can be made to change literally till we die. Nor is it just the way the brain functions that changes, the very structure of the brain changes. The interconnections between its components, the ‘cubic space’ devoted to particular functions, the ability of components to take over the functions of other parts—for instance, the areas devoted to receiving and processing visual inputs taking over the function of ‘hearing’—in each of these and many other ways, the brain remains plastic.8”
Arun Shourie, DOES HE KNOW A MOTHERS HEART
