"BEAR HEAR NOW"
On a small iceberg, somewhere near the North Pole, a little bear goes up to
his mother and asks, "Mom, what kind of bear am I?"
"You are a polar bear, son," replies his mother. "Are you sure I am not a
brown bear?" he asks. "Quite sure, son," she replies, "you are a polar
But the little bear is not satisfied. "Mom," he says, "maybe I am a grizzly
"What are you asking these questions for, son?" asks his mother. "You are a
So the little bear walks across the iceberg to his father. "Pop," he says,
"am I a panda bear?"
"No, son," says the father, "you are a polar bear."
"Not a koala bear?" asks the baby bear. "No, you are a polar bear," says

Right now the Osho Meditation Resort is filling up with juicy friends from around the world. the pool is heated, the Osho Auditorium is cooled. and in the cappuccino bar, today's gossip, tomorrow's gospel, can be heard just above the laughter. The Osho Meditation Resort remains a meeting place of friends.

Jet lag always seems to play with my mind until my body lands. Hugging helps.
Come if its easy. Easy is right.
I remain your friend…this snowman melts in your love, kp

Ps…By the way, I am finished with taxi rides, I just got my Indian driving license so we can safely cruise the pot holes of Poona together on our way to dinner.
On the other hand, if you prefer an intimate evening at home, we can relax and order tofu burgers to take out…
“LAUGHTER is the very essence of religion. Seriousness is never religious, cannot be religious. Seriousness is of the ego, part of the very disease. Laughter is egolessness.”
