  9. He must be a student of the Veda Pathashala there. Such students do have the amazing "shine of wisdom" in their eyes. They follow a rigorous routine, help out in the temple rituals,at other times attend Vedic classes in the pathashala & in leisure time do normal activities boys their age do-carry mobiles, listen to music, play cricket, browse websites etc.

  10. Thank you so much for the info Ramakrishnan.
