Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Mrityor Ma Amritam Gamaya – Immortal Mr. Lee Kuan Yew

asato ma sat gamaya
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
mrityorma amritam gamaya

In the moment of untruth let me see the truth
In the moment of  darkness let me see light,
In the moment of death  may I be granted the elixir of immortality

(Brhadaranyaka Upanishad)


Only a few are granted these wishes. Only the deserving. Only those who have made a difference to the world they leave behind. Only those who leave behind a positive balance of karma.

There has only been one like Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. I never thought I could cry so much at the passing of a political leader – of a country that I step into only at age 32.  I read his biography soon after and was swept off my feet by his thinking. He established the proverbial “Ram Rajya”  & Tagore’s dream in Singapore.

Am totally reverent of the father of Singapore.

He is immortal. Through his life’s work “Singapore” he will live on forever!
