After scoring a century, a batsmen heaves a sigh of relief as well as raises his bat in jubilation and acknowledgement to the crowd. He knows that the crowd maange more! He takes the crease with renewed energy and begins all over again aiming for another ton. We are in a similar situation as we embark on our 101st issue. I thought it is a good idea to revisit the very first issue of
Lexspeak which started with “Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya” (which in Sanskrit means “may the light of knowledge remove the darkness of ignorance”). 100 issues later, the spirit remains the same as I share the whole prayer from the Upanishad
Asato ma sadgamaya Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya Mrtyorma amrtam gamaya
Lead me from untruth to truth Lead me from darkness to light Lead me from death to immortality
This is a true prayer that should be on all our minds and lips as we strive to be good professionals and human beings. As good corporate citizens, I am sure you are aware of the advance tax to be remitted today – or else it could turn into taxing times!
Fresh, young minds are at work to continue the Lexspeak initiative that rests on the ancient prayer. Should you wish to refer to any of our older issues, do visit our Resource Centre at sharadasc.com.Warm regards
