Justice Smt T Rajani, speaking on the occasion said, as a mother and a judge I have immense concern in the upbringing of the children and the growth of a person. As judge who worked in a criminal court, I used to come across several accused, who stood in front of me in the accused box and I could visualise only one thing that of the person as a child. Just imagine as a child he is as innocent and as pure as any child born in any family we come across in any house. The thing that used to bother me was, what transformed that innocent child into a criminal and brought before me. I don’t have big suggestions and answers to this, but would like to narrate one of my life experiences here if It can be of use to you in your life. Basically I am a non-believer, but to oblige someone went to a Swamiji, though with lot of reluctance. But that visit revealed to me one great principle of life. We were supposed to take a meditation class, that swami came into the class and said your class has started now and just walked out, we were wondering as to who will take the class in his absence and after a few minutes he returned and said your class is over. We all wondered what this nonsense was all about and I felt that my opinion about swami’s is coming true. Then he asked us what did each one of us thought about the class. Each of us had something to say, that’s when he posed questions to us. The questions were, Do you have a friend with whom you can share everything? Can you share with that friend details of all the people you love? Can you share with that friend the people you hate? So it dawned on me that I don’t have a friend in the sense the Swamiji meant as I can’t reveal several of the details even to that friend. He basically wanted that purity of thought where such anomalous incidents don’t occur in your life and you will be able to share everything with your friend, that was a great lesson. The other lesson was having a non-judgemental attitude. Just imagine how many judgements you passed by the time you go to sleep, right from waking up we begin passing judgements. All the students here make judgements, first judgement against their mother who wakes them up early in the morning, saying all mothers are like this. But that judgement of your mother brought you to where you are today. Likewise we make several judgements before we go to sleep. I have one suggestion to all of you, the suggestion I took from the Swamiji, just before you go to sleep take 5 or 10 minutes and count all the judgements you made and the validity of those judgements. That will improve your thoughts to each and every decision you make in your life. This small suggestion I made to you will make a difference to your lives as it has made to me.
Speaking on the occasion Sri Trivikram Srinivas responding to questions from students said, I am a very odd person, I don’t party, don’t go out much, don’t remember most things, but remembered one thing, I narrated a story to Venkatesh for 3 hours and after listening to that he asked, why I didn’t meet you all these days, that was a moment which is memorable and in your language ‘got a kick.’ He advised the students to have a goal of accomplishing success which makes them happy and not a success that doesn’t make you happy. Fear is nothing but unknowness, we feel out of fear that there is no exit for the problem, but exit always exists, but we can’t make out and when we explore, we find that exit. I have many people who inspired me, who shaped me and made me to take on the life without fear.
ResoFEST was organised to provide students some respite from the monotony of daily studies, besides enabling them to exhibit talent unknown to their friends. The festival was an opportunity for students to re-energise and get back to their studies with greater vigour as they prepare forthe most crucial test of their lives, says Purnachandra Rao N., Director, Resonance – Hyderabad.
