Hello! I am Ramana Rajgopaul affectionately called Ramana, Rummy, Rummu, Raj, Gopal, Bhaiyya, Sala etc. More formally, I am also called, Mr. Rajgopaul, Sir and the odd Mr. Ramana too. I am also called Ramana Sir by some very interesting people. I have tried to get them to call me Sir Ramana without success. Another young reader pointed out that he calls me Uncleji and that should be included here. Various grand nieces and grand nephews also call me Thattha, which is Thamizh for grand father.
I will be 74 years old in June 2017. I am a retired Management Professional with a need to write to stay sane. I use this blog as a vehicle to write about whatever occurs to me. I hope to receive a lot of comments which will help me along the way to nirvana.
I live with my Multimedia Professional son Ranjan and his lovely wife Manjiree, who I call my daughter in love, in Pune, Maharashtra, India. We have been in Pune, India from 1990 and I hope to spend the rest of my life here. I lost my wife in March 2009 after forty years of marriage.
When I am asked as sometimes I am, much to my dislike, what I do, I reply one of the following:
1. I am a retired hippy.
2. I am a Putra sevak. Translated from Sanskrit it means, I am a son server.
3. I stopped doing a long time ago.
4. I solve crossword puzzles.
I enjoy writing, mentoring and training young people and somehow, I seem to attract quite a few of them often.
As can be seen from my tagline, I strongly believe that all wisdom is by hindsight and I am willing to share my wisdom for what it is worth, with those interested.
If you wish to contact me you can mail me at rrajgopaul at gmail dot com. I will normally respond immediately as long as the communication is not offensive.
