Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good morning. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary that term refers to:

a) the first part:beginning.
b) the opening words of a text of a medieval manuscript or early printed book.

It derives from the Latin language, which means:”to begin.”

After three years of meticulous preparation via the weekly blogging of a series called “Emotional Frustration” and several months of extremely focused and arduous research, study and writing processes,we have finally completed the homonymous manuscript.

All along this challenging process, we have been steadily supported by the love and advice of our two children, Noel Marie and Gian Luca, who are pictured in this image, sharing a barbecue in our patio a few weeks ago. Gracias chicos!

Moreover we have been blessed with the loyal reading and pointed critique of several people like yourself who have taken the time to review our web page. Thank very much for your spontaneous friendship and affection. Merci beaucoup!

Last, but not the least, we would like to thank our God Almighty for firmly holding our hand, all along this treacherous journey through the media-deserted issues that cause the endemic Emotional Frustration.
Grazie Dio Tuttopoderosso!

  1. Dr. Sahib, you and your children have taken huge pain in readying the manuscript and sure enough when such a book comes in the market it will have a huge acceptability because it contains ocean of experience you have had in your life – not merely of your profession as a Doctor but also your acceptability by others in the society as a most considerate individual.

    With God’s grace your book when presented will be liked by the people.

    With warm hugs and regards

    1. Good afternoon, my dear spiritual friend across the oceans. When the ping announcing your commentary came through, I was busy editing the manuscript and that nice surprise filled me with joy: it really felt as if a good friend was paying us a visit to find out how we were. Thank you very much. It will take me a few more days to revise it entirely and make amends. As Ernest Hemingway once said: “there is no good writing; only good re-writing.” Yes, we did a great effort all of us, as my children supported and helped in this process all along. Let’s hope that your words come true and the public likes it. Anyway, we are already feeling the incredible exhilaration of the creative process, which heals all wounds. It’s a s if we were trying to touch back God’s finger, which had given us life in the beginning. We have religiously kept, on the left hand side of our writing station on our desk, a postcard of that Michelangelo painting that we had gotten when we visited the Sistine Chapel in Rome. To create art is to try to give back some of that Divine gifting.
      A big hug. Arrivederci!

      1. Good morning Dr. Sahib.

        Thanks sharing the commentary of yours. It is a fact that whenever we undertake to do something unique, we require the help of our love ones besides that the bounties of our God are hugely required. This way, we get solace that what we will transact would come out with flying colours.

        I am happy that your manuscript is ready and you require to go through it all again for refining the work already done. Great works are done with good intention and good intentions have the blessings of our Lord; always.


      2. Good morning and thanks for your nice commentary, my dear spiritual friend across the oceans. As always your kind words soothe my battered spirit and prod me to move along. A big hug. Arrivederci!


        I am sure with the grace of Almighty God, your efforts will pay huge dividends. thanks for your commentary.


      4. Good morning. I wanted to personally, sincerely congratulate you for the big win of Narendra Modi in the general elections. The Indian people are awakening to the fact that there are malicious politicians that want to agitate hatred and division for their profit. But when the time to cast their ballot arrives, they try to dispel their poisoned message off. It shows the civic maturity of your great nation.

      5. Good morning Dr. Sahib.

        The win for Modiji has revealed two factors: that the people have matured themselves and realize that electing a motley crowed with no leader will put the country in dire straits. Secondly, the caste based politics which used to rule the roost has been ignored by the people. They have voted without any leaning towards any caste, region or anything other narrow considerations. Besides getting more than 350 seats out of 542 speaks volume since in it the contribution of all is there – Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and other religious group. In the words of Modiji: IT IS THE WIN OF PEOPLE OF INDIA. I for one feel on the Seventh Heaven since a stable Govt. means much for the country.
