It is very interesting toknow that 3 three legendary personalities lived on 19th century and their connections..


Max Muller (1823-1900)
Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931)
Swami Vivekanandan(1863-1902)


Something Surprising... 
His Masters Voice (HMV) had once published a pamphlet giving the history of gramophone record. Gramophone was invented by Thomas Alva Edison in the 19th century. Edison, who had invented many other gadgets like electric light and the motion picture camera, had become a legend even in his own time.
When he invented the gramophone record, which could record human voice for posterity, he wanted to record the voice of an eminent scholar on his first piece. For that he chose Prof. Max Muller the great German-born philologist of England who was a great personality of the 19th century.
He wrote to Max Muller saying, “I want to meet you and record your voice. When should I come?” Max Muller who had great respect for Edison asked him to come on a suitable time when most of the scholars of the Europe would be gathering in England.
Accordingly, Edison took a ship and went to England.
He was introduced to the audience. All cheered Edison’s presence.
Later at the request of Edison, Max Muller came on the stage and spoke in front of the instrument. Then Edison went back to his laboratory and by afternoon came back with a disc.

He played the gramophone disc from his instrument. The audience was thrilled to hear the voice of Max Muller from the instrument. They were glad that voices of great persons like Max Muller could be stored for the benefit of posterity.
After several rounds of applause and congratulations to Thomas Edison, Max Muller came to the stage and addressed the scholars and asked them, “You heard my original voice in the morning. Then you heard the same voice coming out from this instrument in the afternoon. Did you understand what I said in the morning or what you heard in the afternoon?”
The audience fell silent because they could not understand the language in which Max Muller had spoken. It was ‘Greek and Latin’ to them literally. But had it been Greek or Latin, they would have definitely understood because they were from various parts of Europe. It was in a language which the European scholars had never heard.
Max Muller then explained what he had spoken. He said that the language he spoke was Sanskrit and it was the first Sloka of Rig Veda, which says “Agni Meele Purohitam”
This was the first recorded public version on the gramophone plate.


Why did Max Muller choose this?
Addressing the audience he said, “Vedas are the oldest text of the human race. And “Agni Meele Purohitam” is the first verse of Rig Veda. In the most primordial time, when human beings of the Western World did not even know how to cover their bodies and lived in caves and hunted for food, the Indians were much advanced and had attained high civilization. They gave the world universal philosophies in the form of Vedas”
When “Agni Meele Purohitam” was replayed, the entire audience stood up in silence as a mark of respect.
The verse means:
“Oh Agni, You who gleam in the darkness, to You we come day by day, with devotion and bearing homage. So be of easy access to us, Agni, as a father to his son, abide with us for our well being.

Here is an extract from The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda.
“While our study had proceeded thus for a while, Swamiji raised the topic about Max Müller and continued thus: Well, do you know, my impression is that it is Sayana who is born again as Max Müller to revive his own commentary on the Vedas? I have had this notion for long. It became confirmed in my mind, it seems, after I had seen Max Müller.Even here in this country, you don’t find a scholar so persevering, and so firmly grounded in the Vedas and the Vedanta. Over and above this, what a deep, unfathomable respect for Shri Ramakrishna! Do you know, he believes in his Divine Incarnation! And what great hospitality towards me when I was his guest! Seeing the old man and his lady, it seemed to me that they were living their home-life like another Vasishtha and Arundhati! At the time of parting with me, tears came into the eyes of the old man.
Disciple: But, sir, if Sayana himself became Max Müller, then why was he born as a Mlechchha instead of being born in the sacred land of India?
Swamiji: The feeling and the distinction that I am an Aryan and the other is a Mlechchha come from ignorance. But what are Varnâshrama and caste divisions to one who is the commentator of the Vedas, the shining embodiment of knowledge? To him they are wholly meaningless, and he can assume human birth wherever he likes for doing good to mankind. Specially, if he did not choose to be born in a land which excelled both in learning and wealth, where would he secure the large expenses for publishing such stupendous volumes? Didn’t you hear that the East India Company paid nine lakhs of rupees in cash to have the Rig-Veda published?” Even this money was not enough. Hundreds of Vedic Pundits had to be employed in this country on monthly stipends. Has anybody seen in this age, here in this country, such profound yearning for knowledge, such prodigious investment of money for the sake of light and learning? Max Müller himself has written it in his preface, that for twenty-five years he prepared only the manuscripts. Then the printing took another twenty years! It is not possible for an ordinary man to drudge for fortyfive years of his life with one publication. Just think of it! Is it an idle fancy of mine to say he is Sayana himself? 
[The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda; Volume 6; Conversations and Dialogues; Part IX, Pages 495-496 
Following points are proved from this extract:
1) According to Swami Vivekananda, Max Muller is the rebirth of Sayana Acharya.
2) Sayana has taken birth again to revive his commentary on Vedas.
3) No scholar in India was of Muller’s calibre and Muller was firmly grounded in knowledge.
4) East India Company paid NINE LAKH (nine hundred thousand) rupees in cash to publish the Rig-Veda.
5) Vedic Pundits shamelessly took money from East India Company, the occupiers of India (Aryavarta).
Vivekananda hails Muller in a letter written to Mrs. Bull on 30th May 1896, as follows:
“…Day before yesterday I had a fine visit with Prof. Max Müller. He is a saintly man and looks like a young man in spite of his seventy years, and his face is without a wrinkle. I wish I had half his love for India and Vedanta. At the same time he is a friend of Yoga too and believes in it. Only he

(മുപ്പത്തിനിലാം വിവാഹവാർഷിക ചിന്തകൾ)
              
ഈ ജീവിത നൗക തുഴയാൻ തുടങ്ങിയ കാലം മുതൽ
പ്രതിസന്ധിയുടെ ഓളങ്ങളിലും
പ്രതീക്ഷയുടെ താളങ്ങളിലും
ഇതികർത്തവ്യതാമൂഢരാകുമ്പൊൾ
"സമ്മിലൂനീ..സമ്മിലൂനീ..*
എന്ന പരിദേവനങ്ങളിലും
ആശ്വാസത്തിന്റെ കമ്പിളിയിൽ
മൂടിപ്പുതച്ചു കിടക്കാതെ
പ്രഭാതം വിടരുമെന്ന പ്രതീക്ഷയിൽ
ഉറക്കമിളിച്ചു കാത്തിരുന്നവർ ഞങ്ങൾ..

പാതി വഴിയിലധികം ഈ നൗക പിന്നിട്ടിരിക്കുന്നുവല്ലോ?
ഇനി ആ 'തുരുത്തി'ൽ എത്താൻ
കുറഞ്ഞ ദുരം മാത്രം!
കുറഞ്ഞ ദുരം മാത്രം!!

പാറകളെ തട്ടിയും
ഓളങ്ങളെ മുട്ടിയും
യാത്ര ചെയ്തതിലത്രയും തന്നെ
മഴവില്ല് വിരിയുന്ന താഴ്വാരങ്ങളിലുടേയും
കുളിർ മഴ പോലെ സ്വപ്നങ്ങൾ പെയ്തിറങ്ങുന്ന
നീല തടാകത്തിലൂടേയും
 ഈ നൗക യാത്ര ചെയ്തു.

ഈ ഹരിതമാം ഭൂമിയിലെ
നീല ജലാശയത്തിലുടെ അനസ്യൂതമാം  യാത്ര തുടരാനാഗ്രഹമുണ്ടെങ്കിലും
ഇനി ആ തുരുത്തി*ലേക്ക്
എത്തിപ്പെടാൻ
കുറഞ്ഞ ദുരം മാത്രം!
വളരെ കുറഞ്ഞ ദുരം മാത്രം!!

FATE AND FLIGHT NEVER WAIT ANYBODY


 

[My son Rawaha has left for Kuwait after much long stay. This period was luckily comfortable to me as I was bedridden due to road accident.He has to join his new job there at once.. Pls pray & go to following lines which has come from my leisure thought just after his departure)

FATE AND FLIGHT NEVER WAIT ANYBODY


You stood with a tear that rolled down your cheek,
As I opened my eyes, I just caught a peek
of you trying to cover it, not wanting to show
your sadness at parting. I know; I know.
And we talked and we hugged and we smiled at the day,
wanting to hold on; wanting to play,
But no time ,for again fate has taken a hand
Fate and flight never wait anybody.

Set you to work as you leave the hot land
To generate money that both of you need,
To start your new life, your new seed.
And I wish your better half always be better to you.

You made me comfortable those bedridden days.
Aftermath distress of the road accident I met.
I felt your presence soothing in pain.
Now, I felt your absence helps your gain.

While I unable to walk with my fractured leg,
You fetched me where ever I wished
I realized I won't expect help from others as if from you
I' be satisfied if your better half stands for your betterment in full

When I caught you as if my walker with my fractured hand
I sensed your mood; your feeling forlorn,
But sadness is not what either should feel,
the happiness shared, and our love being sealed.
Those are the feelings that keep us in touch
While you parting us in the cloudy morning.
Wishing you the pleasant morning in the desert home,
With outstanding memories of our own home.

K .P. A Wahab

Thanks to all for making wedding reception a memorable event...



Dears & nears
We have no words to express our gratitude to those who made wedding reception of our son Rawaha and our daughter-in law Najitha a great success and beautiful and ever memorable event. Especially to our Gulf relatives & friends who extended their stay ignoring their children’s school opening days and who did flying visit for 2 0r 3 days ignoring high ticket rate.

However, I hope and pray this spectacular event at the serene ambiance of “Sargaalaya” craft village might have  an unforgettable experience to every participant, hence not a loss for your attempt. We hope you have  appreciated the “Dinner with Gazal” , “Suhani Rath”,  colourful fire works, “Mailanchy Paatukal” & our Children’s fine arts performance. (photos & movie will postnext time)

Once again we submit our thanks to every participant. And at the same time we suggest it is a loss to those who escaped from our invitation, though it is only few persons.
Wahab KP, Ayisha Farhath, Rawaha, Rassal, Rasween & Najitha Rawaha

 

HEARTIEST WELCOME TO RAF-HA
