Life, I've figured, is a continuous process of weighing and matching theory and practice.
The gap between the ideal and the norm is large and reducing that distance is the work of a life time!
Each time I enter a temple, I go with the pious resolution that I should pray to God, ask for his Grace only and not make any demands.
But the minute I'm in front of the Deity, my resolutions are forgotten and my idealistic theories are lost.
That which is uppermost in my mind is a prayer; for success, for health and for happiness. For that which is mine and for those that are mine.
After all this time, I still wonder, where exactly does theory meet practice?
