I am a homemaker with two kids a son and a daughter aged 9 and 6 yrs respectively. I love telling stories to my kids. It has helped them to grow up better and they are more relaxed at the end of the day. My other hobbies are listening to music and reading. I have always believed our ancient wisdom holds the key to many of our questions. You can reach me at roopa.hebbar AT gmail.com

Nice. What is the source of this verse?
namastE, SReemati! Thank you for the wonderful quotation. I think there is a typographical error in the last word of the first line (actually the second pAdam of the SlOkam) of the samskR^ta version. The Roman script version is fine, I think. It should be महान् रिपुः instead of महान्रिपु .
आलस्यं हि मनुष्याणां
शरीरस्थो महान् रिपुः |
कृत्वा यं नावसीदति ||
Thanks again for the gem.
