Village vignettes - Wisdom

 Eashwaramma, my neighbour, friend, philosopher, guide.
"Eashwaramma, what does your devudu give people who follow dharmam ? Does he give them rains ?"
"Hah, one rain for those who follow dharmam, and another for those who break it ?", she laughed at me.
I persisted, "Then what will he give, Eashwaramma ?"
She answered, "Manasshanthi" ("A calm mind").
