Talk:Random Thoughts

From The Sannyas Wiki

Several remarks about the colophon of this 2018 book:

"English translation of Naye Sanket" : if correct, then that would point to a mistake in this Wiki's understanding, we thought that the "Random Thoughts" portion of Wings of Love and Random Thoughts comes from Amrit Kan (अमृत कण). To be researched.
Also the individual Thoughts need to be researched, as here there are 225, and the earlier collections have 224.
"Previously published in Wings of Love and Random Thoughts (1978)" : We don't know about that edition. Only about a "Second Revised Edition : Delhi, 1979."
", and included in The Long, the Short and the All (1994)" : we don't know about that edition. Last one would be 1984.

Send me some page with text, 3-5 will be enough. I will check with Hindi editions.--DhyanAntar 13:00, 9 January 2020 (UTC)


Spot checks of notes (1-5, 26-27, 104-105, 152-153, 200-201, 224-225) show clearly that Naye Sanket (नये संकेत) is book from which this book translated.

Good notice, Sugit, Random Thoughts portion is also not translation of Amrit Kan, which looks as another book. Random Thoughts portion in The Long, the Short and the All and Wings of Love and Random Thoughts has 224 notes (short texts), but Hindi Naye Sanket 225! At least first edition of 1967. Perhaps translation either skipped one note or joint two.

Any questions?

I will correct info on translation source, please check if i corrected on all pages.--DhyanAntar 16:15, 9 January 2020 (UTC)


224 - 225 not matching are solved now. First edition of Naye Sanket (1967) has 224 notes, number 166 is missing at all, so they are numbered 1-165, 167-225.

Sugit, you stated 225 (chapters) on main page (of Random Thoughts) and 224 numberes short texts in TOC. Please check if this Eng book also has missing no.166 and if there are indeed 225 notes.--DhyanAntar 08:31, 31 January 2020 (UTC)


This book has a chapter "166". A quick scan does not reveal any missing numbers.

An association: could it be that some missing "note"/"quote" has been inserted? --Sugit (talk) 08:51, 31 January 2020 (UTC)


In order to find out i need to compare all notes with Hindi book.

What we can do now - to check numbers of all notes in Random Thoughts.--DhyanAntar 09:24, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
