English Word Learning Program: Recondite; Compendious

Our learned, veteran ENT expert with 41 years of experience has recently started another group for learning and understanding English words. Maybe, at the initial stage of our lives and as a mandatory requirement all of us are compelled to go through learning new words. But, after schooling and settling down in their career/life, most of them conclude that whatever is learnt is more than enough and no more learning is required. No doubt, it is a popular tendency there is no dearth of eternal learners as knowing, understanding and learning is a never-ending exercise for those having the urge to keep learning, irrespective of one's age and stage in life. So, let us be thankful for the Doctor preferring to remain anonymous and including me in the group having 300+ members almost all of them being doctors and medical practitioners. Let us have a look at a couple of words for today:

Difficult or impossible for one of ordinary understanding or knowledge to comprehend: DEEP

A recondite subject.

Relating to, or dealing with something little known or obscure.

Recondite fact about the origin of the holiday

*To a craftsman, the ancient article with recondite and scholastic words was too abstruse to understand.

*We had to work from material that was both complex and recondite.

Compendious: Containing or presenting the essential facts of something in a comprehensive but concise way.

"A compendious study".

Containing all the necessary facts about something.

A compendious description.

Short but complete, including everything that is important.

This is a compendious, judicious collection of poetry.

Large and including many different things:

He had such a compendious vision of what it meant to be alive.

In the end, a compendious sum-up and an expectation were brought out.

Paul Mamu becomes part of Dharwad's history

People originally from Dharwad and most of whom migrated decades ago elsewhere across the state, country and world in search of green pastures were in for a sudden shock since late evening on Monday. They all shared similar sentiments, fond moments and profound grief in the passing away of Paul Cardoza of the renowned Hotel PAUL’S at Vidyagiri. He was 69 years old and not at all an age for his generation to bid adieu. Walks to Death: Paul Cardoza was a little bit hefty for his height and age; otherwise there were no visible symptoms to hint of any ailments he had been challenged with. Even on the fateful day, he attended to the chores in the hotel until the afternoon before proceeding to neighbour Hubballi for a cardiac test. It is said that he literally walked to the health check-up facility to undergo the examination. No, he was not destinated for it as he suffered a massive stroke and never to recover! A jovial personality: In the passing away of Paul Cardoza Dharwad has lost one o

Dr Godwin Shiri: An Accomplished Theologist, Author, Research Scholar and Social Scientist..

Dr Godwin Shiri as the name itself suggests is truly a Godly person who won the hearts of people all along and wherever he went across the globe. He is a well-read, widely travelled religious personality having contributed any number of books and translations of eminent philosophers. He is turning 79 today and looking back there seems to be a huge list of accomplishments worth cherishing on the way. Priest on his own inclination: Dr Godwin Shiri himself voluntarily opted for the priestly vocation of becoming a Pastor at a young age, much against the wishes of his family. The sight of the Cross of Lord Jesus Christ and the scenario of thousands of workers marching holding red flags in his native town Mangaluru had a lasting effect on him as a young boy. Recalling the good old days Godwin Shiri admits-"Perhaps they sowed in me the seeds of compassion and social justice".
