Baba was always fully up-to-date on the latest news, be it politics, art and culture, sports, medical science, religion or philosophy.

Somehow, He always seemed to have "inside information". He could hold forth with great ease on current affairs, politics and politicians, sports, especially soccer, international and national events of importance such as the the US liberation of Afghanistan, the Olympics or Kumbh Mela.

Inspired by Him, the Sri Gauranga Ashram web team thought to create a section wherein we could keep abreast on developments in religion, culture, medicine and spiritual values, since there is no dearth of news coverage for all the other (not so good) aspects of our life and times.
