Autobiography of a yogi chapter 1 summary
Paul McCartney - Flaming Pie by Paul McCartneyThis has to be the most inspired album in Paul McCartneys solo career. It was written during the era in which Paul was experiencing a popularity resugence due to the Beatles Anthology project, and the time when his beloved wife, Linda was slipping away due to illness. The rockers have bite. The ballads have purpose. And the lyrics on this song collection are probably his strongest since the late Beatle period. A cool guest appearance by Steve Miller on a pair of songs. And some exceptional production by Jeff Lynne and a gorgeous string arrnagement by Gorge Martin on the albums most affecting song, Somedays.

A very good book which I read, more than 40 years back. I introduced it to my sister who helped to translate it to a vernacular language. The second step in the 8 steps of Patanjali is Niyama ,misspelled as Viyama. The supernatural experiences narrated in it, I just rejected and even scoffed at those days, as a teenaged engineering student. Now after nearly 50 years I am not that arrogant and hence I can only say that I am just unsure of it.
