A photograph of the begetter (Pitr), the Sahasya Pandit Narendra Khardoori. Pandit Khardoori had wrestling as his hobby. He was trained in this sport by none other than the great spiritual master Pandit Gopi Krishna. It must not be ignored that two genuinely great wrestlers ever, The Great Gama and Rahim Baksh Sultaniwala were of ethnic Kashmiri Butt or Bhat (Kashmiri Brahmin) stock. Moreover, also Pandit Gopi Krishna was known to be a Mahayogi, a brilliant person and a good wrestler. Also he was extremely close to Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker.
MY NURTURER: The towering educationist Pandit Niranjan Nath Fotadar. Me with Pandit Fotadar (MRST, London) and Panditani Indira Fotadar, 1956. Pandit Fotadar was the Headmaster of the elite school of Kashmir, namely Tyndale Biscoe School in the 1940s. Eventually Pandit Fotadar as a result of difference of opinion with the then Principal Dr. Phil Edmonds (a myopic individual) resigned his position and left for Delhi. Following this he was appointed by the Government of India to direct the settlement of refugees who had arrived from the newly created Pakistan. Edwina Cynthia Annette Mountbatten also aided Pandit Fotadar in this colossal task.
Upinder, 1993. At approximately 220 lbs, I was then close to the peak of my physical ability. However, in 1969-71 I was surely much stronger though I weighed close to 165 Ibs!
Demonstrating my (2008 and 2017) physical prowess. I can never ignore the contribution of my late beloved brother Ramesh Kashmiri, Pandit Jagdish Ram Acharya (Sanawar) and Maheshji Gupta of Kanpur. Also other than training in my opinion my Kashmiri genes have evidently contributed towards this. My diet a Bharati one (Kashmiri in this case) consists more often of a large quantity of meat (never beef considering that Lord Indra is the protector of cattle), milk (one liter whole milk with four raw eggs daily), nuts, usual food, fruits, etc. At times also Koshur Haq!
Upinder, 2012. Rode this beast at 120 MPH (193.121 KM) on the Agra-Delhi road. A little more throttle and I would have been sitting on an unpinned hand grenade.
Shri Khan and Upinder. Shri Khan is at present (2018) a Senior Leader of the Congress Party. Shri Khan was the bosom and loyal friend of my late brother.
Pandit Dr. K.S. Bajpai and Upinder, 2018. Pandit Bajpai genuinely reflects our Bharati civilization.
Upinder with the late Pandit Narayan Datt Tiwari (1994) discussing international politics. Pandit Tiwari played a role in the independence movement of Bharat and later a sizable role in Bhariti politics. In general Tiwariji was a refined and a cautious politician though, however, sadly in his later years (due to some untoward developments in his life) many individuals who were loyal to him were obliged to distance themselves from him. As is well established many of us Bharatis follow our ancient time-tested Sanskriti (reinforced by the thoughts of Gandhiji) rather stringently. Nevertheless, no one can deny that Tiwariji contributed significantly towards our beloved Matarbhumi-Bharat.
Quite easily done in July 2019. The homework has been done and the groundwork laid for my genuine old age.
Upinder, Queens, New York City, 2020. Upinder enjoying apple juice. Moreover, Upinder never consumes alcohol, since experience from our time-tested and ancient Bharati civilization has clearly made evident that alcohol consumption produces adverse health effects. Thus it is preferable to obtain antioxidants from natural sources rather than from drinks containing alcohol. Furthermore, not surprisingly the following data complements the experience of our Bharati civilization: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-45283401
Upinder outside one of his Alma Maters (Mater in Sanskrit and other Indo-European languages means Mother) the one and only Rockefeller University. This exclusive University is known to be a factory for producing Nobel laureates
