Frozen thoughts is a monthly magazine published from Chennai. I didn’t think a magazine from Chennai will beat Readers Digest and reach the first place i.e. my favorite magazine. Suggesting to subscribe for more peace of mind.
The editor of that magazine runs an organization for the improvement of society. When checking the frozen thoughts web site, found the Alma mater site and found that they broadcast the editor’s speech live on Sundays 7AM to 9AM
T.T.Rangarajan's speech is broadcasted on Headlines today on Saturdays from 6.45AM to 7AM. It is titled 52 Thoughts. On 2/4/2011, it was the 5th episode
Those who miss that can check for frozen thoughts in you tube. The editor’s speech is in good English, given without any notes, no searching for, what is that word, mmm.. ya.. words. The points spoken may be known but the way they are told is just great.
Below are the excerpts from one such speech.

One story. One guru and his sishya returned to their hut after traveling for a long time.
Half of the roof was damaged in the house. The guru said “lord your ways are your ways, you know we need good ventilation”. At night the sishya couldn’t sleep staring at the sky. He complained to the guru about that. Guru said, “lord your ways are your ways, you know staring the stars will help us in falling asleep fast”. Suddenly it started raining and they came out. Sishya said,”we are suffering in the rain”. Guru said,” “lord your ways are your ways, you know we didn’t take bath for a long time”.
The sishya got fed up with the guru. He asked the Guru why he is not complaining and always thankful to the lord. The Guru said,”I don’t even know whether god is there.I don’t even know to whom I am saying this,but my approach is making me happy”
