International Congress of Religious Liberals in Boston little did he know that his journey would change the life of millions in a western world This was a time when eastern teachings “from the land of snakecharmers” were looked down upon and not considered “wise and scientific” But in a few years Ghosh who later came to be known as Paramhansa Yogananda achieved what no one had before him He gave yoga to the West Not as something spiritual but as a science — demonstrating the superiority of mind over body and of soul over mind So much so that the Autobiography of a Yogi written by Yogananda was the only book Steve Jobs had on his iPad It was given to the 800 people who attended Jobs’ memorial service Now more than half a century after he passed away Yogananda’s life has been documented for the screen by Academy award-nominated filmmaker Paola Di Florio and her co director Lisa Leeman The film Awake: The Life of Yogananda has won awards and accolades in various countries and is set for a pan-India release on June 17 four days before International Yoga Day “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to get International Yoga Day recognised by the UN and we are aware of that But the important thing is that the film is finally coming to India Knowing that it’s going back home to Yogananda’s home is very powerful and moving” says Di Florio in a telephone conversation from Los Angeles For decades filmmakers have been trying to make a film on him “Lisa and I were non devotees It’s important to make that distinction because in a way that gives a fresh approach My personal story is that of being transformed by his teachings over the course of filming I did become a devotee at the end of six years of filmmaking but it was a process” she says Share This Article Related

art But one has to see that it’s the journey of humanity His autobiography was a fantastic resource” says Di Florio The filmmakers have included interviews with Pandit Ravi Shankar George Harrison and Deepak Chopra Harrison’s interview is archival and has been given by Yogananda’s organisation The documentary has been narrated by actor Anupam Kher who is the voice of Yogananda in the film “Anupam

BCCI top brass had an inkling that all was not well but they were taken aback when they came to know that captain Virat Kohli and chief coach Anil Kumble were not on talking terms for the "last six months" Another important thing that has come out in the open was that the Chief Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman also didn’t straightaway give the green light to Kumble’s extension File photo of Indian captain Virat Kohli right and Anil Kumble AP "There had been reports that the CAC had okayed Kumble’s extension They had okayed his extension but with a rider They had said that Kumble should be retained provided all pending issues are resolved" a senior BCCI official who was present in London during the whole episode told PTI Post the ICC Champions Trophy final there were three separate meetings at the Indian team’s hotel The first was where Kumble met the BCCI top brass and members of CAC followed by Kohli meeting them The last and the most "eventful" meeting was when Kohli and Kumble were made to sit across the table The talks failed completely as there was no communication "The two had stopped talking to each other since December when the England Test series got over There were problems but it was like shocking that the two didn’t have any proper communication for the past six months On Sunday evening after the final they were made to sit across table and they both agreed that it’s not working out" When asked what was the problem the source said: "When we spoke to Anil separately and specifically asked him if there’s any problem he said he has ‘no problems with Virat’ He was also told about the specific areas where Kohli has reservations about his functioning while Anil said these were non-issues" The official sounded helpless "Look if one of the two protagonists feel that there are issues which seemed to be non-issue to the other one only these two can then sort out Once they sat across the table both realised after coming out that it has gone beyond repair Anil’s tickets were booked for Barbados His wife was also supposed to join him but he knew it was over" the official added Asked if he could be more specific the official said: "Let’s put it that Virat felt that Anil is entering an area which was his domain For Anil who has been a decorated player and an India captain he has his own beliefs and ideas but the final call always stays with the captain" he said Mumbai | Published: November 22 2013 12:42 am Related News The Bombay High Court Thursday issued a notice to Pakistani singer Adnan Sami

Editor’s note: Atal Bihari Vajpayee one of the shrewdest politicians of India is known for negotiating multiple paradoxes: from militant nationalism to his secret family life; his stint as a communist; his indulgence in food; and his attempt to project himself as a moderate if not a liberal Exploring crucial milestones of Vajpayee’s career and his traits as a seasoned politician a new biography — ‘The Untold Vajpayee: Politician and Paradox’ by Ullekh NP (published by Penguin Books India) — looks at his relationship with leaders of his party and his love–hate association with the RSS and its feeder organisations Thoroughly researched supported by hard facts and accompanied by inside stories and anecdotes insightful interviews and archival photographs The Untold Vajpayee will open a window to the life and times of a poet-politician ** On 27 February 2002 a group of people from a Muslim populated area of Godhra had set fire to a few bogies of a train — the Sabarmati Express — which carried pilgrims from Ayodhya a town considered holy by the Hindus Massive riots broke out mostly targeting Muslims for nearly a week All the killing and pillaging in Gujarat had given Vajpayee a bad name the more so because Gujarat had a BJP government in place with a chief minister who had reportedly not risen enough to the occasion to rein in the violence Vajpayee was blamed for his failure as PM to get rid of Chief Minister Narendra Modi who reportedly shouted back at a Muslim leader on the phone for seeking help after a mob had gathered outside his house Some hours later the Muslim leader was lynched and Modi is alleged to have asked the police forces to let the violence continue At that moment Modi seemed to be the villain who brought a lot of shame to the central government ‘The Untold Vajpayee’ by Ullekh NP; published by Penguin Books India Modi had also dared to publicly snub Vajpayee at a press conference where he was seated alongside the prime minister The reporter wanted to know Vajpayee’s message for the chief minister in the wake of the riots In controlled displeasure Vajpayee stated that Modi should ‘follow his Rajdharma’ He explained that Rajdharma was a meaningful term and for somebody in a position of power it meant not discriminating among the higher and lower classes of society or people of any religion In a bid to stop Vajpayee from saying something scathing about him Modi turned towards Vajpayee tried to catch his eye and said with a strong note of threatening defiance ‘Hum bhi wahi kar rahe hain sahib (That is what we are also doing sir)’ Vajpayee immediately changed tack and said ‘I am sure Narendrabhai is also doing the same’ Three days before his foreign tour in April when Vajpayee visited the Shah Alam camp in Ahmedabad which housed 9000 Muslims displaced by the riots he was deeply touched when a woman told him that he alone could save them from the hell that their lives had become Now on the flight to Singapore Vajpayee was worried he would expose himself to more humiliation while outside the country His grouse was: why am I being paraded abroad at such a time Shourie suggested that the PM speak to Advani who had by now become the deputy prime minister about the possibilities of salvaging the situation — it could even mean replacing Modi But even after the ‘pep talk’ with Shourie Vajpayee appeared cheerless He told Shourie that he would speak to Advani about it They reached Singapore; there were no meetings scheduled for the first day The next day there were several engagements including ceremonial visits to dignitaries which included the former ruler Lee Kuan Yew The Gujarat issue came up in an interview on the third and final day of their stay in Singapore The journalist who interviewed Vajpayee first stated that Singaporeans were wary of communal disturbances clearly indicating that he was referring to the recent riots in Gujarat under the BJP rule Then he shot off his question: ‘And in India such disturbances have happened not once but several times In this regard what can Singapore learn from India’s experience and what can you share’ Vajpayee paused and rubbed his forehead. before answering betraying a level of discomfiture in answering questions related to the Gujarat riots Then weighing his words he said ‘Whatever happened in India was very unfortunate The riots have been brought under control If at the Godhra station the passengers of the Sabarmati Express had not been burnt alive then perhaps the Gujarat tragedy could have been averted It is clear there was some conspiracy behind this incident It is also a matter of concern that there was no prior intelligence available on this conspiracy Alertness is essential in a democracy We have been cautious And if one does not ignore even small incidents like one used to in the past then one will certainly be successful in fighting terrorism’ Clearly he was on the defensive and the issue worried him no end It was Vajpayee who had asked Modi to take over as Gujarat chief minister PTI Photo ** Before the delegation left for Cambodia that day Shourie asked Vajpayee whether he had a chat with Advani The prime minister looked distraught but answered that he had not yet had a word on the matter with Advani Modi’s mentor On the same day 9 April Vajpayee met the Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen and other officials He also made ceremonial speeches at Phnom Penh Over the next two days the prime minister signed various pacts with his Cambodian counterpart and announced that India would offer 10000 tonnes of rice for distribution among the people of Cambodia especially among the flood-hit He also visited the famous Angkor Wat temple where Shourie again found Vajpayee to be distracted and lost in thought He asked Vajpayee again if he had spoken with Advani and he answered in the negative The Indian delegation led by Vajpayee returned on 11 April The next day senior BJP leaders were to attend a national executive meet in Goa Shourie went home and took a shower He was reading a book when he got a call from Brajesh Mishra asking if he had booked tickets to Goa Shourie said he had ‘Please cancel them You are going with the PM and the deputy PM in the PM’s aircraft’ Mishra said emphasising that if he didn’t go both Vajpayee and Advani would not talk if they were left alone in a plane When Shourie boarded the plane Vajpayee was already there seated next to the window and facing him across a table on a window seat was Advani The external affairs minister Jaswant Singh was also there The plane took off and after a few minutes Vajpayee took a newspaper from the table in front of him and opened it so widely that he didn’t have to face Advani at all A little while later Advani also picked up a newspaper and began to read Shourie and Singh looked at each other and sighed Then Shourie surprised himself He pulled the newspaper out of Vajpayee’s hands and interjected ‘Vajpayeeji newspapers can be read later also Why don’t you tell Advaniji what you wanted to tell him’ Vajpayee kept the newspapers away and muttered in his usual style about what had to be done First Venkaiah Naidu would replace Jana Krishnamurthi as BJP president Then he said ‘Modi has to go’ By the time they landed in Goa the decision was taken: Modi would go ** For all his bravery perhaps Vajpayee was afraid of younger leaderspublicly questioning his authority PTI Photo Eight months earlier in late September 2001 amid massive political infighting it was decided that Modi would replace Keshubhai Patel as chief minister of Gujarat On 1 October Vajpayee asked Modi to meet him in Delhi where Modi had lived for the previous three years Modi had put on weight from the last time they had met Vajpayee joked about too much ‘Punjabi food’ and then got to business Modi had to go to Gujarat as CM to prepare the state for the next elections due in 2002 Vajpayee said Modi’s immediate answer was a ‘no’ Vajpayee insisted because the Keshubhai Patel administration had incurred public wrath over not doing enough for the people of the state after the 2001 earthquake Some members of the government were in cahoots with unscrupulous builders indulging in shoddy construction Some of them enjoyed Patel’s patronage Modi told Vajpayee that since he had been away in Delhi as the general secretary in charge of several states he had been out of touch with local politics Even so he agreed to spend ten days a month in the state However a short while later Modi agreed to accept the CM’s position after being convinced by his mentor Advani to do so Advani knew about Modi’s lack of administrative experience but was very fond of him Finally Modi was sworn in as chief minister of Gujarati on 7 October 2001 ** At Panjim in April 2002 the national executive meet began and a short while later Modi took to the dais and said he would like to step down as chief minister over the riots Immediately people from several sides got up and said there was no need to do so Whether it was orchestrated or not Shourie wasn’t sure But according to him Vajpayee felt that it was a coup Sensing that things were not going as planned Shourie got up and described what had gone on between Advani and Vajpayee on the plane and the agreement they had reached thereafter But shouts kept emerging from the delegates: ‘It cannot be done Modi cannot be allowed to go’ Vajpayee immediately understood the situation and said ‘Let’s decide on it later’ ‘It can’t be decided later it has to be decided now’ somebody shouted And as if on cue it became a slogan Shourie observed that Advani hadn’t said anything though he knew very well that Vajpayee wanted Modi out Seeing things take a different turn Vajpayee kept mum opting against a confrontational stance Perhaps for all his bravery he was worried about younger leaders publicly questioning his authority He would never forget that humiliation Extracted with permission of
