Goddess Lakshmi on Swim Suit (Bikini) at Sydney Fashion Show – Fashion Designer Lisa Burke

Goddess Lakshmi on Swim Suit – image of Goddess Lakshmi printed on the bikini. The designer who toyed with image of Goddess Lakshmi and the sentiments of Hindus is Australian Designer – Lisa Burke. Her label is called Lisa Blue Swimwear. This lack of respect for the oldest religion and lack of respect for the religious belief of more than a billion people was displayed at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (RAFW) held in Sydney (Australia) from May 2-6. Nothing is going to happen to Hindu tradition because some insensitive Lisa Burke wanted to expand her fashion business empire at the cost of one of the most widely worshipped murti in Hindu tradition. But it causes a problem to millions of Hindus who have to interact with non-Hindus daily. The image of their deity on a Swim Suit sends out wrong signal to non-Hindus. They have to face embarrassing comments and situations. Not all people are Gandhiji to be tolerant and peaceful and neglect such insensitivity. Such disrespect might make a p…

Rabindranath Tagore – Pearls of Wisdom

Today is the Jayanti of Rabindranath Tagore. Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not be for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it. Higher than detachment is transforming what you want to get rid of. God’s great power is in the gentle breeze, not in the storm. Much rather should we lose all than barter our soul for an evil victory. Those in whose minds the reality of the ideal is not clear, and love for the ideal is not strong, try to find the compensation in the success of the work. Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation.
Rabindranath Tagore
