Okie doks intrepid readers. Welcome to 4.0.

So if you are not doing so already, do pick up DEVI and give it a whirl.

Updates ahoy!!!!

whew! man talk about being swamped. September flew by and we are halfway through October now.

Now the big news :

DEEPAK CHOPRA presents INDIA AUTHENTIC VOL 1. BOOK OF SHIVA (ISBN-10: 1934413089 / ISBN-13: 978-1934413081) collecting #1-5 of the series is going to hit the stands on 17th Oct 2007.

Silent Rain

A City Sleeps
Darkness falls

Wisps of hope
Mist of dreams

Silent night
Silent rains

Someone weeps
remembers yesterday

Another sleeps
Dreams of tomorrow
