This year began on Vaikunta Ekadasi. Other than the fact that my parents have chapathi for lunch and dhalia for dinner on Ekadasi, I have not given much thought to it all these years. But since the beginning of this year, I have been fascinated by Ekadasi. Not for its religious or spiritual significance but as a unit of time. Ekadasi falls roughly every two weeks. A month feels too long and a week feels too short but a two-week time frame feels right for just about anything. Life seems more manageable and goals more achievable, one Ekadasi at a time!
