I have always wondered about the life of a "saint" or a "sadhu"(Hindi). There are certain criteria which should be met by this people. We had a lots of such ideal personalities in India. Here in our country we can find many of such sadhus, some times even in metros.Those who choose the life of a hermit are very much seem to be cutoff from the outer world.Their lives seem to be calm and quiet. But one thing is sure it is not easy. They reminds me of our old "Rishis" of golden vedic periods. Most of the people think that being modern or forward-looking means, fashionable,using high end gadgets and living in metros.But the real modernism must begin inside you, in your thought, in your deeds etc.Your mindset should be modern in order to have a modernistic approach.
