Oh Mind!

Instead of truly helping me out in my life issues, at times you color the same and present it in a way that totally distracts my attention..

You plan so meticulously my Programs and make ME believe in their implementation to the root level, totally making ME forget the fact that life a few times can move in its own direction with neither prior intimation to nor prior permission..

You drive ME concentrate so well on every Rupee spent making ME thus assess it's worth in spending rather than advising ME remember that those Rupees finally would not come along with ME..

You evaluate so nicely the faults of others and the mistakes done by them centuries ago not making ME forget the finest details therein ever coolly making ME forget my own similar mistakes all along..

You work out for ME so well a Program to enjoy the best in the world by making ME probe the nook and corner of the Centers of Fun and Excitement making ME totally forget the fact that here moderation alone is the true safeguard..

You meticulously guide ME on safeguarding the welfare of my people through a fine division without allowing ME see the fact that those on the other side too can equally be helped in the process..

You firmly make ME believe in God but instantly force ME to be stingy when 'Giving' surfaces thereby totally making ME forget the fact that the Entire Spirit of Godliness lies in nothing but 'Giving' alone..

You often make ME hanker on take pride on my own self expression again making ME forget the very fact that others too have Great Ideas worth paying attention..

You assert ME try rule the surroundings indirectly through coercion when truly no such Powers are given to ME at anytime..

You many times cajole ME escape into the imaginary scenario of supporting my own opinions there by totally diverting ME from the very physical Scene of Reality in front..

And strangely I, instead of seeing you as indisciplined and dangerous there, firmly believe you as disciplined and valuable only thus deceiving myself again and again and remain there stagnant in the so called 'True Personality Development!'

THE 'SACRED SONG' OF MY LIFE!

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

  • “In spite of being so careful too, my health failed here.. I don't know, why it happened so.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • “I took every precaution but still this mishap had happened.. Luckily, it just had gone with a scratch.. Today, am totally disturbed.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • “Oh, why did I get into this Financial problem at this stage? It’s nearly a lakh that is at stake presently.. It would be really a big relief for me if I get over this crisis soon.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • “I'm confused.. Am in this Litigation now because I believed the wrong people.. I should have been more disciplined in these matters.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • “I'm afraid of that man around me.. He looks too influential.. Let me negotiate and settle for something for the present.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • "I'm off to the distant Lands away from my home for a long time.. Have to go else the small earnings here take me no where.. I wish everything goes well.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • "Presently, am directionless.. Every Path in front appears confusing.. The forces around are seen not less.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • "The future appears bleak.. Which ever way I try moving, there seems to be a problem.. The most unfortunate situation.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • "My name is at stake.. Have to do something.. Let me first come out of the present hitch.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”
  • “I was a success all along and with the same faith am venturing into this.. I very much believe in my own capabilities.. Hope tomorrow would be a better day for me!”

Ten different people and ten different problems..

  • Failure of Health,
  • Ordeal of the after effects of a Mishap,
  • Wealth at stake,
  • Going thru’ Litigation,
  • Facing a Threat,
  • Living thru’ Separation,
  • Exposing to Unnecessary Thrust,
  • Feeling Helplessness,
  • Defamation on the anvil and
  • Taking a Risk..
But sure, all with a single Hope…. ‘Having A Better Tomorrow!’

The same Evening, all of them were at their Worshipping Place to Offer their Prayers to the Omnipotent and the Omnipresent with total Devotion in their Hearts for the Ultimate Take Care..

Here, I'm sure I'm too none but the eleventh man in the list with my own problem in my life being at the same Worshipping Place at the end of the day, for a better tomorrow!

No doubt the Almighty would play His 'Divine Tune' to our Living invariably bringing in the 'Sure Peace' in us whatever be the end result provided we try singing the 'Right Song of a Promise' all along our life to the best of our efforts Viz.,


'Show-offs will not divert me,
Sweet words will not trap me,
Obedience will not carry me away,
Monetary Returns will not make me yield,
Influencing will not hold me,
Politicizing the issues will not change me,
Abuses will not deter me,
Threats will not weaken me,
Back-stabbing will not leave me wondered and
Apathy will not make me pardon
When Truthful Actions lack in the other person and untruth is forced upon me!'

THE VERY MUCH NEEDED 'INTROSPECTION!'


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
A young man fresh out of the College full of energy received his Appointment Order for a job he applied for and reported at the place on the D-day at the stated hour.. 

On his acceptance of the appointment as per the Hierarchal Reporting Structure of the Organization, he came under the care of a few Senior Disciplinarians who initially asked him to sign up many papers saying that therein he agreed to the strict Rules and Regulations of the Organization in vogue..

Further to the same, he was briefed exhaustively on the strict discipline required at Work, Code of Conduct and Procedures in Work Area like being obedient to the Superiors, not wasting time in unnecessary movements, not talking aloud or representing in Groups, not disturbing others at work, not entering the Classified Areas without permission, using judiciously precious entities like papers, writing materials and other stationary items, saving on Computer printouts, power and water etc, etc, etc.. 

Puzzled with the too many constraints and limitations imposed on him at a single stroke, the young man straight away asked.. 

“If restrained thus from all directions, what  Great Work will I really do here that would be useful to the Organization?”

That's how forever reacts a youngster.. A personality, full of energy and openness everywhere ever ready to bring out something NEW into the world!

Very appropriate to say that this energy and openness of young men and women should be streamlined and rightly utilized for the betterment at the place of work, betterment of the own family and betterment of the society at large.. And this energy and thrust should neither be allowed go waste wherein the precious output is lost once for all nor allowed to go freely in an uncontrolled direction causing definite damage and bringing untold misery around..

Such young personalities are invariably kept under the fold and care of the experienced/elderly in the line up and are controlled and monitored with certain Authority but unfortunately here, the controlling many times goes beyond what is really required.. And exactly to say, here only the young forever want their freedom as that enables them rightly express in the way they want..

Thus the experienced / elderly in direct contact with the young should see that these young men and women are never kept under their grip with selfish motives which can happen often but allowed to explore and bring out the ‘NEWNESS’ to the world..

That ‘NEWNESS’ alone has the right place in the world which does its own good of finding out the cause of suffering at large and eliminating or reducing the same.. And such an energy is with the youth and only with the youth and with none else in this world!

Thus, let there be a true awakening in the minds of the experienced / elderly personalities of the society that this precious energy of the youth forever is given out to the world freely and freely only but never given under the chains of over dose of Discipline and imposition of too many Customs, Rituals and Practices and too much of Morality!

And that day is sure the ‘Day of Liberation’ for all!

MY DAD IS REALLY GREAT!



The little girl was with her dad in the Toy Shop….

“I want that toy!” she was nagging and forcing him to buy what she asked.. The dad just checked for the price and the next moment, it was seen beyond his reach.. Not so easily affordable.. Immediately, the child was cajoled and brought out of the shop and the dad bought another cheaper substitute toy to please her.. She was all the way silent and no doubt, the dad noticed it but kept quiet for the time being.. She came home, ate her food and slept early..

The next day morning, as she got up from sleep at her usual time she found in front of her the same toy she asked for.. The dad was not there immediately as he had left home early to work more to make up the finances spent.. He returned home late in the night for the same reason and the girl slept by that time.. Further to that, the little girl safely kept the toy with her as a precious item and occasionally used to play with it..

Soon, days passed into months and later into years..

The girl had grown up and was in her twenties.. She got a good Academic Degree, joined a job of her like and was posted in the best place on the behalf of her Company..

Days passed and the year's Father's Day was ahead in a few days time.. And on one of those days, a big Check was received by the dad in his name from the daughter..

The dad immediately phoned up and asked her, “What for is this?”

The daughter said, “I'm held up here with my job for a while and as such am unable to visit you on this coming up first Father's Day after I got my job.. On the eve of this Precious Day for me, I am gifting this lump-sum money to you as a token of return of a very small percent of the cost of the item one day you purchased for me! Please buy whatever you like out of this and spend the day happily.. Best wishes to you dad, on this Special Day of a Father!”

The dad not understanding what she said asked her back, “Dear! I don't get it what such a big item I purchased for you paying thousands of Rupees at any time in my life? As I look back, I never did anything like that so far!”

The daughter replied with all warmth, “Yes dad, I agree that out of the great love for me, you will never remember such Events of your life where you had taken care of me to the best possible.. I too know that such a buying was never there in our lives at any point of time..


But if you remember exactly, one day you struggled and purchased the dearest toy of mine when I became sad and was silent for a while for not able to have that with me..  Seen from my side, it was something a very highly valued item at that point of time compared to any other thing in my life and I was the happiest over that! 

Out of that great satisfaction alone, I had grown to a full Personality and all my capabilities of today which the world around values so much have come out of that contentment and great feeling of my childhood.. Rest of the support given and the monies spent on me had their true worth mainly at the back of this happiness alone.. Such a strong foundation was truly made by you by your timely care and attention for me in your heart! Today, as I look back and try to give any value to that gift of my childhood, I'm forever seeing it much, much less only as the love behind with which you bought the item for me is truly priceless!”

A FOOL'S PARADISE!

Kindly refer to link for the edited and modified post without changing the core message.. Sorry for the trouble!

THE FUNNY FLYING EPISODES..


###  As the Passengers were waiting in the Boarding Lounge beyond the departure time of their International Flight without any sign of the boarding announcement, a Senior Crew Member came up inside the Lounge and announced at the mike.. "Ladies and Gentlemen! One of the ground vehicles had just touched the Aircraft and damaged the paint outside the skin.. The Aircraft cannot takeoff till the Experts decide on the rework required to be done and the same is completed.. We are sorry for the delay and I request you all to be patient and relax for a while.. Soon, we will be serving some snacks and drinks at your place!”

The Passengers murmured within but there was no go for them and they patiently waited in the Lounge as snacks and drinks were served.. Time moved on thus and after a delay of nearly 5 hrs, the boarding announcement was made to the relief of all.. The tired Passengers quickly boarded the Aircraft, occupied their seats and put on their seat belts.. All was ready for the take off.. 

Before switching off his mobile phone, one of the Passengers who got fed up with the delay was heard by many around speaking on his phone aloud.. “Oh, God! This's too much.. I never had such a bad experience even in my train journeys I made so far in my life.. For a small repair like this, they held up all of us for such long time.. There is already 5 hrs delay here and it appears, this may not be the end.. The flight time from now is 10 hrs and in this time, at least if the Aircraft doesn't slow down or further not held up on the way, we will be reaching the destination roughly by 2000 hrs of our time.. Too tiresome!”

###
  The clean well lit Aircraft on the prestigious International Route was ready to move as all the passengers boarded, sat in their seats and the door closed.. At that point of time, the Pilot made a special announcement.. “Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen! This is a historic moment for our Airlines to start the Engines.... We proudly announce that our Airlines having taken this latest World Class Aircraft for lease from the reputed --------- Aircraft Manufacturers is introducing today on this Route for your comfort and pleasant journeys with us here afterwards.. Some Special Souvenirs are being distributed in this context.. I request you all to stay back in your seats, relax and enjoy the historic Flight!”

Listening to the announcement, one of the Passengers with a clear apprehension on his face asked a nearby Stewardess a bit nervously, “Is your Airlines, flying this Aircraft for the first time after the purchase?” And soon he was comforted by the Stewardess who said that it was already a flying Aircraft with the Airlines making the first Flight on the current Route!


###  The Aircraft was cruising smoothly in the early morning hours of the day on its routine Flight with clear skies around.. As the Passengers were sitting and relaxing in their seats, they noticed the smart smiling Stewardess with a pen and paper coming to every Passenger and requesting them to write a few good wishes for some of the members of their Crew as it was their first flight experience on a Commercial Airline Route.. First take off, first level flying and first landing experience.. As the Passengers were happily writing their own comments and good wishes, one of them with an extra admiration on his face asked the Stewardess, “Can we meet the Pilots once to wish them personally for being on this Aircraft for the first time?”

THE SANCTITY BEHIND THE PRINCIPLE 'PAISA VASOOL!'


The Great Man was approached by a stranger one day  who said to Him, "Sir!  I'm hungry.. Give me some food!"

The Great Personality replied, "I've a work to be done.. Please complete that and I'll give you food!"


The stranger retorted back, "Sir, how can you ask a man to work when he is hungry and weak?  Can't you be sympathetic to a man in distress?"


"I agree with you... If you are really hungry and weak, I'll give you food immediately... Please eat it, relax for a while but promise me that after that you would finish the work I've planned to give to you!" said the Noble Man with all calmness..


The stranger flatly refused the proposal saying that the Man whom the world was honoring so much seemed to be too calculative and after a few minutes left the place.. All along, the Great Man was firm and never yielded beyond..


The story very much reminds me of one of the most Sacred activities eternally going on the Earth i.e., 

  • Working with all sincerity to make a Living.. 
A little deeper.. 
  • Doing Productive Work with all sincerity to make a Living... 
And at the deepest level..
  • Doing a sale-able Productive Work with all sincerity to make a living.. 
And nothing less can replace this most important activity of the world!

Thus, whenever I'm in a deal in my day to day life, it's one of my duties there, to bargain over the right price for the Item or Service in exchange.. And this bargain has its own edge, it should never be done for name sake and should be done by putting my heart and soul into it.. When I thus get into the Sacred Activity of bargaining, it is sure going to stir up the Seller and soon would put him on his heels where in he had to look into his Costing Aspects of his Product and trim up the inefficiencies if any with him.. This ultimately balances both sides and would make the flow of easy monies come under stringent check.. Further to that price fixing, I should still not leave the issue but suggest to the Seller through my assertion that he can still balance the deal by disposing off some of his underutilized items with him at that point of time to me which look useful to me in the situation.. 


This way done with all sincerity, the deal is indirectly well balanced as it rightly helps both the Parties and the Law of Supply and Demand is rightly met in the scenario.. Seen from any angle, this is only right way of keeping off excess and easy monies in circulation bringing out the Ultimate Truth in the world Viz., Right Pay for the Right Work, of course with no room for greed and exploitation any where from both the Parties....

From childhood, I've noticed this attitude of getting the Right Value for the price they pay in the people around me.. Be at the Groceries Shop while buying monthly Provisions always being happy with the Seller when he used to pack each item after weighing a little more free for the Customer and add a bit of extra of the material and further offering a free drop of the material Home if the billing exceeded certain value, be at the Book stores While buying routine Stationary Items offering the New Year Calendar or Diary in the beginning of the year or be at the Fancy and General Shop where certain New Products are given as Samples for the Customers along with the routine Products.. These Practices forever kept or are keeping ultimately the Customers happy by providing or getting them the Right Item for the Right Price..

Our Economy no doubt is quite stable because of one of the reasons of this attitude with almost every one of us being ready to bargain for the ultimate worth either in cash or kind as many of us do not have the free flowing monies with us and those limited monies with us too are earned under the same conditions of stringent give and take.. Thus, when my precious monies or so to say sacred earnings are in the trade, I naturally become tough in all my bargains of utilizing the monies well, demand the best and thus optimize my living..

With the background of such a Reality, Lufthansa Airlines seemed had newly launched the Premium Economy Class in their regular Flights.. This indeed is a boon for a few needy Passengers such as the elderly, those in difficulty and mothers with small babies.. By providing the extra space, comfort and the related additional Services with a little extra cost which worked out optimum for them, the Airlines truly is going to help these people who other wise would have to adjust with normal Economy Seats with no room for stretching their legs and thus suffer silently as many could never afford the cost of a Business Class which may provide those amenities liberally but with a very high cost attached all along.. The Airlines' Proposal works out to be the best in the Scenario for many ordinal Travelers and for a few Better-offs too whenever they make their Travel..

NOW FOR SURE, WE KNOW THE REASON WHY CHILDREN ARE BEHIND THEIR GRAND PARENTS!


It was the difficult day for the Mom and the Little One and for the Grand Pa too at the Park.. All along, the Mom expected a certain discipline from her boy but the Kid never obliged to be at that level foregoing his freedom..

The Mom was helpless for a while and left him to his own.. The child too was not less.. He was just adamant and didn't budge even an inch.. And silence alone ruled for a while..


The Grand Pa saw all that for a while and just mentioned to the daughter, "Dear! The boy has to be naughty and noisy.. No child should be silent even for a moment unless he / she is tired.. The punishment is too much for his natural behavior.. Take him nearer, give him what he wants and let him play around!"

The daughter shot back, "Dad! It's easy for you to say all that.. If he does not listen to me now, tomorrow he will not listen to others too and none would like him.. And that is going to be a big problem for me and for him too.. He needs to be disciplined for a while.. There's nothing wrong in this!" she said with all firmness..

The Grand Pa knew that indiscipline is a problem with children but his question was.. 'Does a child being naughty come under that?'  But that was not the time for him to ask his daughter anything as she was already furious with the boy and decided to implement her own style of bringing him to her line..

Some time passed..

The child rolled over on the floor, lied down to a side for a while, started gazing to a corner next to that but in between was trying to look at his Mom expecting some thing to happen.. And he equally noticed his helpless Grand Pa silently watching him.. But the Mom knowing well the boy's tricks never yielded even though she was observing him from a side..

Soon the limit reached, there was no go for the child, his reference seemed to be lost and he burst into a big cry suddenly..

The Mom instantly reacted and comforted the child but still she had her own firmness in her mind..

"Dear! I like you only if you do what I want.. Then I'll give you everything and take you wherever you want to go.. Will you just do what I tell?"

The boy could not believe that.. He was almost in low spirits but the way shown by his Mom gave him a tremendous boost..

"Mommy! Can I have my bicycle for a ride?" he requested in return..

The Mom said, "Yes! You will have your bike.. So now do what I say.. OK?"

It was too much for the Grand Pa... "It's over, isn't it?  Why test him further? What other great things he has to do now? 
Just take him nearer and comfort him!" he ordered the daughter..

Strangely, she never heeded to his advice and instead of listening him she said, "Dad! Please.. I want the boy to do this..You be sitting there in silence!"

The Grand Pa had no go there and instead of arguing with his daughter, he decided to do what she wanted.. But within, he was feeling bad for his Little Grand Son under going all that disciplining..

The Mom turned to her Kid and said, "Dear! Go to your Grand Pa, put your hands round him and repeat what I say!"

The Little One instantly did that without saying a word..

"Now say.." continued the Mom.. 


'Grand Pa! I love Mommy very much..
I love you and Dad too..
I'll listen to what all Mommy says..
I'll not trouble Mommy, you and Dad!'


The child did say that ditto and again looked at his Mom for further instructions.. That looked to be too much for the Grand Pa but he just stayed there unmoved for the moment..

"Now hug him closing your eyes!"

The Little One quickly did all that 1:1 but as he closed his eyes, he secretly opened one to see what his Mommy would say further which the Grand Pa could equally see..

The Mom with a smile she said, "Now you are a good boy.. Take your bike and go with your Grand Pa!"


That's all.. Next moment, the loud Wordings..

"Hi! The bicycle is mine now.. Am going!"

"Yeah! The bicycle is yours now.. Am coming!" 

Simultaneously reverberated the surroundings with the Little One and his dear Grand Pa jumping in joy and instantly the child ran towards the bench where his bag was kept with an ecstatic smile on his face, grabbing his cap and putting it on his head reversed, got onto bike and pushed off at a great speed 

With the aged Grand Pa in a double ecstasy equally running behind the boy to the astonishment of the Mom herself and a few nearby visitors to the Park for a while!

THE SILENT QUESTIONS WITHIN.... BUT ANSWERED IN NO TIME!

Two friends had a great plan of spending a coming up vacation and soon were on the train to the place in the comfort of the luxury AC First Class travel..
  • “Our Hotel booked at the Camp has the facilities of ultimate comfort and can simply be described as Heaven on the earth.. The food is going to be classic as the best Chefs are going to be into it.. The Guest Service would be beyond description” said one friend pondering over the planned relaxation stay.. The man moving round the Compartment on his routine work there overheard the talk and murmured within.... 
  • "Oh, God! On one hand these people can enjoy so much in their life but I have just enough for a living and even to get that have to continuously work very hard in my life.. Why did you make me like this in my life?"
  • “We are expecting soon some monies too.. You remember, we had put up some bills sometime ago and there were a number of queries.. Thank God! It seems the file is cleared and that money is coolly ours now.. In fact, I have planned this trip with the back up that coming money..” the friend over took the conversation nodding his head mischievously.. The man listening to all that again murmured, 
  • "They can do anything and get away easily.. And for ever the monies are theirs only.. That way, I can never get anything extra except my salary.. God! Why did you put me in such an awkward position?"
The train moved on.. A few hrs passed.. In time, it started raining and the winds became gusty.. Soon, the temperatures dropped below normal but there was no problem for the two in the comfort of AC.. The first friend continued.. 
  • "Last week I got a letter; you know from where? How can these people refuse to do my work? They were not knowing my back ground.. I just made one phone call and things are back to normal!”
  • "See.. These people are given so much power to twist the matters as they like.. If some one challenges me, really I can't do anything except adjusting and avoiding.. God! Why have you made me so weak not able to protest on a single wrong being openly done?" the man grumbled overhearing their talk..
  • “You need not go that extent.. The people there are really very timid.. Last time they had done similar thing to me.. I just went there and showed my anger verbally.. That’s all; it worked.. Show up your resentment once there ends the matter!”  the friend was heard replying..
  • "I did similar thing once and I had to face a hell out of that doing, had to say sorry for the ambitious approach to assert that I am not small... Now, I know that I'm nothing in front of these powerful people... God! Why am I such a small man in this world?"  the man again felt within as he further heard that...
  • “OK! Leave that issue.. I recently booked a Villa with M/s…..... If you really own such an Estate Property in our city, there is nothing like that! By the way, a few more are still available.. Why not you too book one? We can be together at one place..” the first friend changed the topic..
  • "See! these people can plan such great things in their life.. Every one agrees that a shelter above is a must for all.. But with so many years of working, I still live in a small rented house not able to buy my own.. Please tell me God, why did you put all the eggs in one basket leaving nothing for others like me?" the man was equally angry within for the prevailing wide difference in the livings when he heard that..
  • "I too want to buy there.. You know that great man…….. He lives there and I don’t like him.. The moment I book a flat there, he starts commenting on my monies, the sources etc etc.. He is a thorn in the shoe.. I don’t know when he will have a punishment from God for troubling people like us.. I don’t want to see his face!” the friend said a bit agitated..
  • "Yes! These people can openly talk like that and if at any time I talk a bit in that way, immediately I am advised 'What are you thinking? Do you think you are a great man? Be in your limits..' thus come the Sermons.. God!  Why am I so much vulnerable to attacks by others so easily?" the man felt depressed when he heard the same..
By that time, the train had slowed down and stopped at a very small Station for long time.. The two friends did not notice that for some time.. The rain increased with strong gusts of wind in between.. The atmosphere was terrific.. The temperatures had dropped down quite low by then It was lunch hour but there were no signs of any Service around.. The two friends got out of their compartment and made an enquiry with a few co-passengers.. An elderly man of wisdom with his back drop experience of facing toughness of life answered in a calm tone…. 

“Sir! Our weather predictions have totally gone wrong and Nature has its own way.. The track is flooded all along.. The train can move neither forward nor back.. We are all caught surrounded by floods of water.. There is a small village quite a distance away from here but presently reaching there itself is a hectic problem..The Station In-Charge is rationing the food available.. The temperatures are likely to fall further towards evening and hope the Power would not fail.. Presently none can do much in the situation other than patiently waiting for the conditions to improve soon.. Meanwhile, it's truly Wisdom here that we all offer a sincere Prayer to God for the Ultimate Take Care which at this point of time, the Almighty alone can do that equally for one and all!"

AM I 'BALANCING' HERE MYSELF?


"The Great Stories go thus....
  • “The rich man of the Town had a very bad dream one night.. He suddenly lost his monies, name, fame, was imprisoned and put in a Cell with its own cold away from the warmth of his family.. Utterly weeping in himself, he was looking at every corner for solace and nothing seemed helpful! Suddenly he woke up from the dream profusely sweating and looked around.. Instantly, he found himself in his own home with the family sleeping by his side and with all his wealth, name and fame intact! He felt highly happy and relaxed with nothing really lost and thus further went back to sleep blissfully for the rest of the night…. In a similar manner, One who is truly delivered from the turmoils of mundane life will forever be freed from the conflicts and sorrows of life and from their harrowing hold!
  • When the night watchman on vigil at midnight was casually repeating the words, 'Hoshiyaar.. Jagte Raho (Be alert and be awake)!', all got up from their sleep, checked the doors for security and went back to sleep.... But a young man thought, 'Am I really sleeping in my life?' He thus got a Great Instant Awakening through this normal message, opened the door at that midnight and walked off into jungles for ultimate Meditation and Penance! 
  • A crow got a piece of meat, flew to a tree branch to sit and eat the piece.. But in no time, a dozen crows attacked it together.. The crow flew branch to branch to escape from the attack, but the dozen crows equally followed.. It was restless for a while and finally in a total helpless state dropped the piece of meat to ground.. The chasing crows immediately left the original crow and went after the piece of meat fighting within themselves.. The original crow rested peacefully on the branch of the tree. A Sage passing by saw that and thought, “The only way to be at Peace in this world is to drop the attachments with me!” 
"Sir! What's the use of all these stories to a normal person like me? In spite of listening to all these, a man behaves almost in his own way and never becomes truly Spiritual.. Renunciation is never for people like us.. Better we get into some productive talk and the related activities.. They alone are more useful here.. Spirituality is a myth for normal humans as the world is very much real for them!"

"Dear! You are very much wrong here.. Even though the stories talk of the state of mind of the highly evolved man, a silent Message for an ordinary man like me too is there here to be more awake in my life to the Reality that the Rose is given to me with a thorn too attached to it!"

"But it appears, I have no choice here.. My ignorance is too thick to remember this constantly and I forever see the Rose as a beautiful flower only and nothing less to that!"

"Yes! That's very much true and here, the only way in front of a normal man like me is to be honestly doing the duties attached to me as I live my life around.. Let that be at home, at work, in the neighborhood or in the bazaar! 


When I thus do my duties equally remembering these stories, the same stories truly come to my rescue and divert my attention partly from the worldly objects for a while.. If done with all sincerity, soon these Noble Works alone take out the force of the attractions around resulting in a some clarity where in the rich man's dream experience gets lessened..  

When I thus become more attentive constantly negating the attractions thus spending less time in that direction with more in the direction of my duties, ultimately a certain Level of Calmness is bound to come to me which surely makes the rich man's dream truly distant!

THUS GOES ON....THE SO CALLED 'LIFE!'

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
The child started walking.. Uncountable advices from people of all walks of life poured in instantaneously..

  • "Oh! Be careful.. He may fall down!" 
  • "From now onwards, he'll never make you sit for a minute!" 
  • "The foot path ends there at the intersection.. Some vehicle may be coming from that small lane.. You have to take care here.." 
  • "You got to keep a constant watch on him.. Soon he starts running.." 
  • "On hard floors running is a bit dangerous.." 
  • "In crowds it's a problem.. You should constantly hold his hand.." 
  • "Child restrains are available if required.. Generally grand Parents use them to hold their grandchildren moving away from them.." 

The young man got into running every where with a style.. Many remarks and advices from friends and well-wishers soon followed.. 

  • "You should really go for the Marathon Race.. That's the age!" 
  • "Yes! Running in the open air is one of the best exercises to keep trim and fit.." 
  • "For safe and comfortable running, good shoes are a must.. Also light dress makes......." 
  • "Keep a monitor on your body which tells you........."  
  • "I wanted to tell you that the casual walking with which I've seen you in the past is never good for your age.. You should be fast in all and should be running everywhere for your works.. Good.. You are active!" 

The middle aged man changed over to the fast walking style.. Some suggestions from his Contemporaries and Seniors were around for a while.. 

  • "Walking is ideal for this age.." 
  • "A few Aerobics added to your daily routine is the perfect fit here.." 
  • "A good health is crucial in this age at the back of various responsibilities hanging over around.." 
  • "This activity cleanses your mind and reduces your stress levels.." 
  • "Unknowingly, walking brings its own new friends to you.." 

The elderly man decided to walk slow.. Only A few around casually remarked..

  • "Everywhere slow is good for this age.. Here too!" 
  • "More Adhyatmika Chintane is right for this age.. Slow walk and interaction with Nature truly fit in here for that.." 
  • "This walk can be part of our day to day small works too which anyhow we got to do at this Stage of life!" 

The very elderly man had to walk very slow.. People many times over took him without uttering a single word!
