Karma is among the most used, yet misused and misunderstood concepts today. Yes, it is said that as you sow so shall you reap. More simply it means what goes around comes around. Put more explicitly it can be said that your deeds, good or bad, will be repaid to you in kind.
All this boils down to the principle of cause and effect, which is what Karma basically is. This is quite a scientific, yet commonsense concept. For isn’t it commonsense that tells you that if you plant weeds in your garden, it won’t yield flowers. You don’t even need to know the law or concept of Karma to understand this.
As a child, my friends and I walked from our village to school two kilometers away in Thana town. The only mode of transport for travel within the town were horse-drawn tangas or tongas. We couldn’t afford to use them on a daily basis. The squeaky state transport buses didn’t ply inside the old, quaint town. When we went to Bombay city, we trudged the nearly 4-km distance to the Thana railway station to board a train.
I recall in my childhood, along with my friends, climbing the banyan tree in the centre of our village, to get a better, panoramic view from above. Behind the banyan tree was a small Shiv Mandir. After school, we would meet and spend joyful hours under the shade of that banyan tree.
