Celebration of Sri Rama Navami Festival by RANDOM THOUGHTS Sri Rama Seva Mandali BURDENS OF SECRETS


e are only as sick & miserable as the secrets we keep! Not letting others know who we really are, keeps us continually off balance, while in their presence. We cower, shrink and feel small in their presence. Risking full openness, even with friends is not easy .For various reasons valid & invalid we buckle up many times. One forgets to realize, however, the pain that accompanies secret-keeping far exceeds the potential pain of self-revelation. There are unexpected gifts for our complete honesty. You are at ease & peace with yourself. Next, you are discovering that we are like others. We are not unique in our shame nor our self- abhorrence. And the attachments to others inspired by our decision to share ourselves strengthens us. The pain of alienation diminishes. We begin to sense our equality, one with another, and we experience TRUST. Guilt diminishes each of us. Sharing secrets of our own and others lessens the pain of guilt. But more than that, our freedom secrets nurtures healthy personal growth. Hiding nothing convinces us that we have nothing to hide. We are free to try new behaviors, move in unfamiliar directions.. No need to wear a mask, no need to pretend what we are not helps us grow in stature. YOUR BURDENS ARE ONLY AS HEAVY AS THE SECRETS YOU HANG ON TO. - Chandrasekhara, resident of 3rd Block, Koramangala

Sri Mallikarjuneshwara Temple - Dharmapuri

Architectural Wonder of Divine Faith I

n the heart of Dharmapuri near the fort (kottai) lies a beautiful old temple of 8th century in a 1.5 acre plot, a complex of small shrines welcomes you. There are two factors unique to this temple. . . One is that the Devi Shrine is on a higher than any other Shrine - greatness of the mother, Durgambika (called here as Ambika Sulini) - a realistic depiction of the woman power slaying the demon Mahishasura. 18 steps leading up the sanctum. These 18 steps are worshipped and asthecially decorated on special auspicious occasion. The other is that the Lord Shiva temple shrine here known as Mallikarjuneshwara inside are supported by 4 ornate sculpted pillars each weighing 250 tons, the beauty out here is that the pillars don't rest on the ground - like the one at Lepakshi - Andhra Pradesh.

Lot's of kings, poets, sages have worshipped and prayed at this reverned place making it a holy place of divinity and power. Lord Rama is believed to have done his penance here.

n 5th April 2018, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) released a statement directing all regulated entities, including banks, to stop dealing with individuals and businesses involved in virtual currencies. This amounts to a ban on banks in dealing with companies or individuals that trade in cryptocurrencies. "Virtual Currencies (VCs), also referred to as cryptocurrencies and crypto assets, raise concerns of consumer protection, market integrity and money laundering, among others... In view of the associated risks, it has been decided that, with immediate effect, entities regulated by RBI shall not deal with or provide services to any individual or business entities dealing with or settling VCs," the RBI said in a statement. As per this directive, Banks will not be allowed to facilitate sale or purchase of cryptocurrencies, which means crypto investors will not be able to transfer money from their bank accounts to crypto-trading wallets like Zebpay, Koinex, Unocoin, Coinsecure, and others. Although this decision does not directly ban cryptocurrencies, it makes trading in them almost impossible. This move might create panic among investors. Further It is going to be difficult for the people to find an exit route out of these currencies. This will impact nearly 50 lakh Indians who have invested in cryptocurrencies, as well as India's crypto exchanges. RBI decision has left these 50 lakh investors in confusion on what to do with their cryptocurrencies.? Will cryptocurrency exchanges shut down? Or will they hang in by only supporting crypto-to-crypto trading? If they shut down, what will happen to the investors' money? No one really knows. Cryptocurrency exchanges may

approach the supreme court of india and challenge the RBI on its stands. This could go either way but could help to buy some time for the exchanges; If the exchanges are lucky, Supreme court may protect the interest of the exchanges but may put some stringent regulations. Crypto exchanges can continue over the counter trading with cash. User still be able to buy and sell cryptocurrency using only cash. Cash transactions can take place even without the banks. With the new directive from the RBI, many unregistered black market exchanges can pop up. Some cryptocurrency exchanges may become Cryptocurrency Escrow. Cryptocurrency escrows are different from exchanges. Cryptocurrency. Unlike exchanges, Escrows do not take Fiat money in crypto transactions. Escrows do list the sellers and the potential buyers. Seller can deposit their Cryptocurrency with the Escrow, An escrow only takes the bitcoin from the seller, and sends a signal to buyer to transfer fiat money to the seller. Once the seller confirms the receipt of the fiat money, Escrow will release the bitcoin to the buyer keeping the transaction fee in bitcoins and never touches the fiat money. How to protect your cryptocurrency in the current situation. 1. Move your cryptocurrency to the exchange outside India: you can use your friends or relatives to exchange your cryptocurrency to fiat money and hand it over to you. This may incur taxes as per the country’s regulations and money transfer charges. 2. If you intend to hold your crypto for a longer period, then you can move your cryptocurrency to an offline paper wallet 3. If you feel paper wallet is not safe, can buy a hardware wallet and transfer your crypto to it. 4. If you want to sell your bitcoin, approach an Escrow agent who can find a buyer..
