Robin Nagle: What I discovered in New York City trash
Unwittingly the talk brings home the fact that the economic development and the creation of waste vary in direct proportion. The poor and underdeveloped countries create less garbage. Reuse, Repair and Recycle is the mantra for them. They cannot afford the luxury of 'use and throw' model , a very common feature in the developed(western?) countries. Perhaps, it is their basic need to create demand to run the factories running. Development and material prosperity has the darker side too.

Judy MacDonald Johnston: Prepare for a good end of life
Thought provoking talk. The issue of life and death, as also the state after death has mystified believers, atheists and scientists since time immemorial. Quest for the search of truth will continue till eternity. However, succor can be found in Hindu vedic philosophy enunciated in the holy book Bhagvat Geeta. Chapter two mainly deals with the eternal reality of the souls’ mortality. The crux of teachings is summed up in verse 2.22. It says that just as a human being giving up old and worn garments accepts other new apparel, in the same way an embodied soul giving up old and worn out bodies verily accepts new bodies. Soul cannot be harmed by weapons nor be burnt by fire nor dampened by water nor dried up by the weather. Soul is immortal, body is not. One may reject the philosophy but there is no escape from the fact that its recognition makes life and death more meaningful and free from fear.

Myshkin Ingawale: A blood test without bleeding
You have proved the adage "Try and try again till you succeed at last"! This is a perfect illustration of ‘Gandhian Engineering’ referred to by Dr. R. A. Mashelkar, the noted Scientist in his TED talk (subtitles in 23 languages including Marathi). Hearty Congratulations and best luck for future. I propose to translate your talk also.

Ananda Shankar Jayant: Fighting cancer with dance
It is a shame that heloise.obyrne is incapable of appreciating the Indian music and the dance. Before commenting he ought to have done some homework on the oriental art. That apart, the whole story is inspiring to any sensible and sensitive person. His comment need to be ignored if not deleted.

Ananda Shankar Jayant: Fighting cancer with dance
Dear Ananda Shankar, I am sure many TED viewers like me have been enjoying again & again the superb performance and touching narration in this video. May I request you to take up another theme close to your heart and share with the viewers another divine experience? I hope TED and you will not disappoint us. My translation of the English sub titles into Marathi & later publishing the story in a Marathi newspaper from Pune was received well. May Almighty bless you for taking us to higher sublime level.
