RAKSHA BHANDHAN.. A 'LIMITLESS' LOVE!

       

 Indian Bloggers

       The brother was 21 and the sister turned 18.. "Now, I can do all of my works by myself!" proclaimed the sister proudly..

"That's great of you.. All the best!" said the brother with a smile..

The next day, the sister had some urgent work to be done which was a bit difficult for her to handle all by herself.. The brother without a say was helpful to her indirectly so that she could complete her work well by herself.. When the sister thanked him, the brother smiled and said,
  • "Help to a sister from her brother is always giving out in the form of his monies, time, energies for the ultimate betterment of her!"
       Later in their life after certain settlement, on a day the brother happened to go to his bank but took certain extra time there to return.. When he returned, the sister asked, “Any hold up?” 

The brother replied,  
“Nothing..  I was withdrawing some Personal Loan money sanctioned to me.. The procedure took time and further there was a long queue at the Cash Counter..”

“I understand that.. Are you in need of money urgently?  I could have given you something..”

“No urgent need from my side..”

“Then why do you unnecessarily pay additional interests in taking the Personal Loan, withdrawing that money from your Account and keeping it with you in the house now?  You could have applied and taken that whenever you needed the same..” 

“I agree but it's not for that..  See.. You may suddenly ask me some money due to certain expenses which you may not like to tell me in advance.. That way seen, I may be able to plan my own but yours is truly unknown to me..  At that time, you may not have enough and I too may not have with me that much..  And it certainly takes some time to get the loan sanctioned.. That's why I applied in advance and keeping the money ready with me!” 

The sister was truly astonished with such a caring reply from her brother.. But she had her own questioning in spite of that care shown by the brother.. She asked,  
"You said.. It's a Personal Loan.. How is this a Personal Reason?" 

The bother smiled and said, 
"Why not? You are my person in my heart..  So, it's always a Personal Loan!"

Further he smiled and said,
  • "Help to a sister from a brother is not only giving out his limited monies, time, energies but some of the possessions too beyond for the ultimate betterment of her!"
       It was the Marriage Function from the brother's side.. Guests were pouring in.. The other side guests were out numbering and some of them were the VIPs of the Town.. The sister with her family had a hectic job for the day to help out in the function.. Her husband could not come to function due to certain urgent work.. 

Having finished helping out her brother in the function, the sister took some time to relax for a while and sat to a side as the children were playing leaving the center seats to the VIP guests..


The brother busy at the function in the Pandal noticed this from distance, after a few minutes got down and straight came to the sister and said.. "You are the number one guest of ours, the VVIP family guest to be in this grand function.. Come and sit in the centre of first row in front of me, grace the Event till the end and be with us!"


Further, he said to the sister in softer tone,

  • "Help to a sister from a brother is not only giving out his limited monies, time, energies and some of the possessions beyond but further bringing down his own level too for the ultimate betterment of her!"
      After a few days one evening, as the brother and sister were walking towards home on a side of narrow road, suddenly an important item of the sister which was in her hand fell into the dirty waters by the side.. 

The sister felt instantly that an important thing was lost but could not put her hand into waters and search for the same as the waters were too dirty and was thus in all tears.. The brother simply kept his hand into the waters, waded through, got the item, carried home, washed it as well as his hands with soap and water and gave it back to his sister saying with a smile, 
  • "Help to a sister from a brother is not only giving out his limited monies, time, energies, some of the possessions beyond and further bringing down his own level too but if required cross all these and voluntarily get into a lesser state of living for the ultimate betterment of her!"

THE 'UNIQUE' FINAL TOUCH DOWN..


The Aircraft soon touched its max height and leveled off.. The gentleman unfastened his seat belt and stretched out a bit in his seat.. As he was doing that, he noticed that the Passenger next to him was not at much ease with a certain tension seen on his face.. He just smiled at him for which the Co-passenger responded and asked him in mild tone, 

“Sir! How much time does it take to reach our place?”
“It's a two and half hr travel, Sir!  Are you traveling for the first time by Air?” asked the gentleman..
“Yes! Actually, I thought of going by train.. But there was no time and my people said it's better I reach in time by Flight..”
“Are you feeling comfortable?”
“No…Not like that.. It’s a bit scary to sit here like this!”

By that time, the gentleman understood that the man was tensed up over the safety in flying.. Being an Expert in Flight aspects and a Frequent Traveller, having travelled widely to the Corners of the World and enjoyed flying, he wanted to infuse a certain confidence and positive attitude in his Co-passenger.. He smiled and said, 


“Sir! All the Aircraft we regularly travel are quite safe.. So much care is taken in building, maintaining and flying the Aircraft that I can, with a 100% confidence say that Air Transport is a safe way of traveling!”

The Co-passenger appeared showing some interest in his talk….


The gentleman continued his talk 
on the Flight Safety Aspects for some time all along munching a few snacks served to him, as the Co-passenger listened with all attention.. 

"Many safety procedures are followed and many safety precautions....... 

Equally certain stand-bys too are kept ready for any rare failures while in operation.......

Again, if you actually go by statics available with us and look into the world Records on Reliability of Flying……… 

All this info should make us ultimately feel that Air Travel is the very safe of mode of transport compared to any other Transport available with us!”

Having thus concluded his talk with an air of pride on his face, the gentleman suddenly looked at his watch and said, 


“Oh! Its nice that we spent almost the journey time talking on Air Safety.. It’s time to land now.. See, the Aircraft already started descending.. We have to fasten our seat belts and make ourselves ready for landing.. This is one of the safety requirements during take off, landing and in times of turbulence.. Anyhow, I hope you feel better now with all what I told during our travel.. That’s where one’s confidence really goes up……..”

“Now you can see.. it's coming closer to the ground.. Yeah.. Count down follows.. 4..3..2..1.....Thud.. See.. So smoothly, it touched the ground! Here too the speeds are still quite high.. That's why the Safety Rule says that we should have the seat belt put on till the Aircraft comes to complete halt and the glowing sign is switched off.. Ok.. Now.. It's over.. We have reached our place.. We are 100% safe now.. And here, all this you yourself have seen now with your own eyes.. Are you now fully satisfied, Sir?" 


saying thus the gentleman looked at the Co Passenger with a big smile on his face!

The Aircraft further slowed down, left the main Runway but as it entered the Taxi way came to a quick halt all of a sudden.. There was a certain silence in the Cabin for few minutes and the seat belt signs continued to glow.. The Cabin Crew Members moving around started saying to the Passengers, 


"Please keep your seat belts fastened and stay in your seats till further announcement!"

The gentleman for a while couldn't understand what had happened.. He noticed in front of him, when one of the Passengers unlocked his belt and made an attempt to stand up, the Hostess quickly said to him, 


"Sir! Please sit down in your seat and keep the seat belt fastened!"

For few minutes, none was knowing what was going on.. Absolute silence alone ruled the Cabin for those minutes.. The Co-Passenger nervously asked the gentleman,

"Sir! You said the journey is over.. Then, why are we still sitting like this?  Why no one is moving? What's happening?"

For a moment, an unknown fear suddenly gripped the gentleman.. It was the usual practice after landing, the Aircraft to move towards the Terminal in few minutes and all busy themselves to move out of the Aircraft with the seat belt signs switched off.. But anything like that did not happen in that Scenario.. Instead all were made to wait just like that in the mid way without any information.. 


His tension mounted and in no time, the greatest fear gripped him.. 


"Is the Aircraft hijacked? Is it getting diverted to the unknown lands?  What is the fate of the Passengers if that happens now? Else for no reason why the Aircraft had stopped abruptly after landing and all were asked to be in their seats? Why no one is talking????"

For a minute, totally forgetting about his Co-passenger, the gentleman himself started perspiring imagining the worst going to happen..

Soon, the door at the back was opened contrary to the usual front but still none were allowed to get up from their seats..

As the gentleman started shivering in the tense moments that followed, next moment the suspense drama totally unfolded when suddenly a Team of Health Professionals rushed in with a stretcher, went round an ailing Passenger some distance away, slowly moved him on to the stretcher and quickly took him out for further Medical Care as all the orderly sitting Passengers never hampered their way!


Subsequently, the seat belt signs were off and the Passengers too were asked to disembark at that point itself and all were further transported to the Arrival Terminal by the Airline buses slowly and safely!

THE 'OPEN SECRET' BEHIND THE UNIQUE 'FOOD FIX!'

A funny story of modern times heard by me a few years back and retold here..

"A middle aged man got fed up and could never adjust with the mixed tastes of foods of local and foreign origin served outside in the City to satisfy the taste buds of the modern younger generation acquired thru' their wide travel across the Globe.. His own kith and kin were also part of that group and beyond in a short time, developed a craving for such tastes too..

In such times, suddenly the news spread like a wild fire that a new Eatery that came up in the City was serving one of the best delicacies with a special taste and aroma developed thru' years of experimentation! The result.. Young people thronged the place in large numbers, there were long queues in front of the Eatery for a tasty bite and smelling the aroma of food served followed by lots of talk, praise etc..etc..

The gentleman too visited the place one cool evening with his children and their families rather to say was made to accompany them.. Soon they were at the Special Table with many varieties of foods spread out all round.. 


The food was served fresh and hot in sumptuous quantity, of course at relatively a high price but while eating, all praised the taste and aroma of the same saying, 

'Hmm.. Excellent, Wonderful, so tasty!' 

etc.. etc! For the first time, the gentleman too liked the food and unknowingly he said aloud to the surprise of others by his side, 'Oh! This food is really good!'

In that small Eatery, the kitchen was just a few steps away from the Dining Area with 2 Serving Personal at the counter and the Cook working behind seen well by all..


Suddenly the gentleman had a strange wish.. He was happy beyond and decided to thank the Cook for doing a good job there.. 

Accordingly, he moved to the Place while others were busy in eating, met the Cook inside and said.. 

'Thank you dear!  Even in these modern times, you could make a few of the dishes where an old timer like me too could link something to my taste buds.. This is the first time after many many days, I could relate something to my liking.. I feel really happy today!"  

The young Cook heard his praise, smiled and said, 

'Sir! Thank you very much for the praise.. But all this should go to our old Chef my Grand Father who actually is the Master Expert behind all this.. You can just meet him and convey your happiness.. Please do come with me!'  

Saying thus, the young Cook took the gentleman in where he was introduced to the aged Owner of the Eatery.. The gentleman thanked the elderly man and said, 

'It's nice to meet you! You seem to belong to my earlier generation.. Great.. I got a similar taste of delicacies of our times..'

The Old Chef smiled and said, 

'What you had eaten are the same delicacies of my younger times.. I did nothing to them except giving new names and a change to the presentation style! 

In my younger days, I used to cook these delicacies in my hotel where I was employed.. Slowly, the coming up younger generation i.e., your generation stopped liking my food and my hotel had to be closed.. Thus, I lost my value and my job.. But, I could not change myself and adapt to the new cooking.. I continued the same cooking in various small places and somehow survived.. Thus my life went on..

No doubt, subsequently my son actively got into the new cooking styles but he too became outdated in time and thus our family had a low profile for many years.. After all those years, by luck we got some money released due to a court settlement.. At once, we decided to open this small Eatery which any how was our family tradition of living and give modern youth these my old famous recipes only; that's all.. But, it just clicked! 

Today, I'm the famous Cook here, my son is the Owner and my grand son is the young Cook..  As you see now my Eatery is very special in this city with the secret actually known to our family alone!'

The gentleman thanked him again and while moving just asked, 

'You told the Truth as is.. How do you say that it's still a secret? If people come to know about this......'

The elderly Chef smiled and quipped, 

'No one goes beyond here and even if few people get doubt, they too don't bother.. They just want my food not the back ground.. That way seen it's going to be an Open Secret all the time!'"

THE 'SACRED MESSAGE' AT FINGER TIPS!

Indian Bloggers
For a while, it was the very strange behavior of 4 fingers of the right hand suddenly rising unnecessarily and feeling proud of their own limited capacities..
  • "If I simply show myself towards a man, it just means that he is nothing in life.. I've this unlimited power of straight away bringing down the dignity of a man in front of others.. To look at me straight, he is ever afraid.. You might have heard many times, people under rage saying to their opponents, 'If you again show your finger at me...........' There, he is just referring to me alone as he is so much conscious of the damage I can do in that context.. My importance forever is great!" 
thus was saying the so called index finger at the back of a vicious smile and untold pride..
  • "Yeah!  You are right.. But, you know.. Here.. I'm too not less.. I've my own unique power with me.. Whenever a man of power decides to punish the other, he just moves me a few times towards himself.. That's enough.. It straight away creates terror in the mind of the other.. Means the man opposite is simply gone.. I help such powerful people just with such a little movement.. My use thus forever stays with the rich and Powerful!" 
were the immediate reactive Comments from the middle finger..
  • "I was listening to both of you.. Yes.. All of us have a unique role here.. I may not terrorize a man but myself forever is in different Role because of my unique nature.. Any ring to be worn in Ceremonies and in day to day matters goes over me alone.. That's why I'm specially called the ring finger.. Further in some ceremonies, a type of leaf is always tied to me.. It's a unique status for me.. I'm all by myself! What do you say?" 
were the next assertions of the so called the ring finger..
  • "OK!  I too have my point here.. Don't expect me to be small and insignificant.. You don't know my importance.. Even a child makes use of me for rest room requirements and none can say 'NO' there.. And, whenever a man starts counting, I'm always in number one position.. If more counting is on hand, one counts up to first 3 on me and then only looks at you all.. My importance stays here, forever thus!" 
were the assertions of the so called even the little finger at the back of its own pride..
  • "Now.. Look at our lazy friend here by our side.. We have our own special powers but he himself has nothing but laziness with him.. Further, he proclaims forever that we are always here to do good and nothing else.. Great preachings as usual.. 
  • But worthless by himself.. Only whenever some one works hard and wins, he simply shows up to say that the best is done.. The other man struggles and this guy simply does nothing all the time except to say in the end.. 'You did it!' What's the greatness here? Any one can say that.. Really, a waste personality by our side!"
The thumb was silently listening to all that talk but was equally silent all the time and thus was humble..

The day passed care free but the next day was the day of certain activity so to say too much activity wherein the man was straight way getting attacked as the enemy laughing at him was readying to do the max damage..

"Come on!  We should not allow this any more.. Enough is enough.. The enemy is rising.. We should put him down with one firm blow.. We have to save ourselves.. OK, now listen.. All of you curl up together and be ready.." 

were the orders of the middle finger..

"Yeah! We are all ready.. Already curled up together.. But......" 

saying thus others paused for a while looking at the thumb..

"We doubt.. We can't do anything here, unless our thumb too is with us in this.. And instead of doing that if he exists as is as we curl up.. Oh!.. No.. What message is conveyed in this process? Nothing but, straight away thumbs up to the attacker.. My God! We are gone.. We have no go here.. We've got to request our friend.. Without him......"

Just then the calm looking thumb all along, coolly embraced all of them extending itself over to them with unexplained love thus firming up their single aim conveyed thru' the message.. 

"OK! Now.. Fight, End the Evil and Establish the Right!"

The Number One Sacred Message conveyed by the Great Book Srimad Bhagavad Gita from the centuries unknown!

THE GOLDEN MEAN PATH!

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
Let my Family be taken care out of the expression of inbuilt self interest within me but let the rights of the Family Members be always honored through a dispassionate selfless attitude..

Let my Profession be pursued out of a deep self interested drive within me to express in a unique way but the related hard Work done in connection with that be purely on the basis of a selfless attitude alone..

Let my Personal Take-care be definitely out of a self preserving attitude in me but taking caring of the next man to me to a level my status expects me to do in the situation be at the back of selflessness alone..

Let me indulge minimum in Worldly Enjoyments as the thrust within me will not keep quite otherwise, but let me streamline this self beyond bringing out a selfless service in its place..

Let the Artistic Quality in me be definitely out of a deep rooted self expression but anything beyond that be avoided through a selfless attitude for greater good..

Let the Environment be modified to the minimum extent for the self expression of mine with all ease but beyond that for all other luxuries, let me say no to this self interest and look at the aspects of Environment Preservation more selflessly in the greater interests of all..

Let me Pray to God out of the deep self expression within me which is part of my own culture and brought up but when it comes to the Worship carried out by a man next to me, let me honor the same equally through a selfless behavior..

Let this balance in my life be ever maintained thus between the 
Self Expressive Tendency 
(which I naturally love to do) 
and 
Selfless Behavior 
(which in general is good for me)
allowing the life go on AS IS
as
what is being Truly Selfless is
totally unknown to me at this moment
and
when that moment dawns on me too
can never be equally predicted.. 
May be the next moment 
May be after countless births on this earth 
but till that time,
the only safe way here to sail thru' my life is..

THE GOLDEN MEAN PATH!

AIRTEL 4G.. THE FASTEST INTERNET CONNECTION!

I've some thing to say here in respect of the Airtel 4G connection at my home taken about 8 months ago..

I am a Retired Professional and after retirement, I have my own activities mostly at Home only and all these are totally connected to the usage of active Internet Connection..

No doubt I'm an old timer, may not be familiar with the usage of many of the latest Terminologies and Gadgets in this context but I can sure speak on the basic use and express my satisfaction over the Service Uniqueness and Dependability..
  • I have 2 of my children staying abroad (US and UK) with whom I needed almost daily interaction thru' a dependable Video Connection..
  • I'm an active Blogger with IndiBlogger and I am very much interested to bring out a number of Blog Posts through Indivine for the benefit of my Co-Bloggers expressing my personal views on life aspects and living this life happily.. 
  • I'll do actively many of  my financial transactions online on a regular basis to keep up all my requirements updated..
These 3 activities occupy almost my full day extending beyond the day a few times and to do all that, I needed an active Internet Connection at Home..

As I checked with many Service Providers around and my own requirements in this context, I found the recently launched Airtel 4G to be totally satisfying to the dot requirement..

  • In respect of the Video Talk we use at Home thru' Face Time App on I Pad, I Phone and Mac this activity very much needed it's own speed.. As the children from abroad communicated on FT, the most important requirements of the occasion were clarity of the picture, high resolution, high speed downloading and the continuity of communication.. These are very important in a good communication especially with close members of the family staying far off where this close personal communication of ours with them becomes a very important part of life at this stage for me and for my wife..
  • As for as my Blogging activity is concerned, a dependable Internet Service was very much on the look out so that the spirit of active Blogging is never hampered and further speed becomes more important here when I have to read other Blog Posts where down loading is quite heavy.. Here I found that the support of Airtel 4G is highly welcome as the speed of this Internet Connection is really amazing..
  • Regarding other financial transactions, continuity is the most important factor as well as the speed else many transactions short close as waiting is not allowed beyond.. So again speed of the Internet Connection and dependability becomes the number one factor here, I found for this too Airtel 4G appeared to be the right choice..
Apart from these, other family members use continuously Whatsapp and here large data in the form of photos and files have to be transferred continuously.. They too found Airtel 4G as ideal for this purpose..

And equally too, getting the connection was the simplest matter in this case.. 

As it was newly launched, we just walked into a Franchise Outlet Office next to our home and met an Airtel Rep.. He instantly sent home two of his Assistants with the instruments to demonstrate the Speed and functioning.. When we have satisfied with all that, the Rep just asked us to fill up an Application Form for the Post-paid Connection, we paid off the necessary initial amounts, received the Router, again a Rep visited our home and made it functional with their own Official SIM.. 

As the house is big and as it is a wireless connection, the Rep advised and located the Router very near to window of one of our bed rooms, suggested that we purchase an extra Wireless Repeater and locate it at such a point in the middle of the house so that the signal comes easily anywhere in the house..

All these settled in a day and we with our active connection were soon on our job with all ease..

As far as the monthly payments are concerned for the usage it's a simple matter, just pay off the bill on the Airtel Website online and get the instant Receipt..

There are many Plans to offer, Initially we chose a higher Plan but the next month decided to go the next lower one as the usage was found to be less.. The matter was simple, we walked to the Office again and it was changed by the Person sitting at the Desk in a minute and with a big smile..

The Rep suggested us to switch off the Router when not in use for a longer time in a day and invariably in the night as then we will be saving on the unnecessary traffic visiting the Net work..

I may not be familiar with the later developments and availability of other Products in the Market, I just wrote here my personal experience with the Service Provider and I'm fully satisfied with the speed and dependability of this 4G Network offered by Airtel in our country as on date and till date, this Facility with us never failed on a single occasion!

A 'LIFE TIME' LESSON!

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

Once there was a certain misunderstanding between the right hand and the left hand.. It happens a few times when we are too close and familiar.. The right hand soon openly started boasting itself on it's worth..

  • “I have my own Value here and there's no single doubt in this.. Many people are right handed with an exception of only a handful.. Means, I am the most skilled One by the side of man and here, the left is nowhere comparable to me!" 
The next day by bad luck, the left hand got hurt.. The doctor attending the man advised a total rest for the hand for 2 to 3 days..

Immediately, some of the works to be done at that point of time were postponed and some were forcibly done by the right hand alone with lot of strain.. It was a Herculean Task for the right hand and in no time it got tired beyond.. Thus, the right became really helpless for the moment.. 


  • “How much I was wrong here? I thought that I could do everything by myself.. I now, know the importance of my friend the left hand.. I can never do the best in life without the left by my side.. It's silent contribution is always there behind my every success!” 
Seeing the repentance of the right hand, the man thought,
  • “In this life, I can never do my job well without the sincere contributions however small they may be, of my people around and it's ever my duty to straight away acknowledge that fact and be thankful to all these Personalities without a say!” 
Everything rots in time and there even the best discipline of a man is no exception! And the same thing happened here too.. Soon, the right hand had some of the best times non-stop..
  • People held it and said ‘Please, excuse me!’ 
  • They took it, kept on their head and said, ‘Bless me!’ 
  • They holding it said, ‘Thank you’ when the right gave them gifts and the like.. 
  • And the same People wished thru' a shake hand making use of the right.. 
  • Further in front of God, it was just preferred without a say! 
And the right hand felt that all the praise was for it alone..
  • "Here the left hand no where comes into picture.. I'm all by my self.. 100% of this credit is my own and by claiming this I'm never disrespecting my friend the left!" 
Thought the right.. Thus, the pride had over taken the right in no time!

But life is strange and moves totally in a different direction contrary to one’s expectations.. It happened here too and it was then the time for the right hand to get hurt! The pain was a little more with swelling seen around.. The attending doctor advised certain treatment and rest for a week.. All the well-wishers of the man visited, held the right hand and wished for speedy recovery but they had to leave, leaving the pain at the back..The right, thus was helpless all of a sudden!

Just then it felt, the cool touch of left hand by the side doing a service through gentle stroking when the man started comforting himself as advised by the doctor.. The left hand sincerely attended to it's job and cooled it's friend by relieving the physical pain to some extent.. And, the right soon started relaxing under that care!

The right hand thought,

  • “I can't imagine how much my friend, the left hand cared for me in this situation.. Here, nothing else would have truly comforted me in a better way!” 
Seeing this, the man further thought,
  • “All that glitters is not gold! My people may laugh with me but they should equally be ready to weep with me in my difficulties.. Here, a true friend alone will do that and such friends are always few in numbers.. May be such true friends are next to me silently doing their work unnoticed by me in all these good times! The right way of living here is never fail to recognize the worth of such dear Ones by my side and thus live safely in my life!”

THE BOSS AT 'WORK!'


  • Every one knows that the 'Alarm Clock' and 'Stop Watch'  are the Prime Gadgets of Time Keepers of our life and the Boss never losing a bit of patience continuously drives the Assistants use these liberally through out their active life thus making them prosper through a good Time Management.. Which Well-wisher in our life will really do this Tiresome Task other than the close family members?
  • ‘Familiarity breeds contempt!' is the Saying and sometimes, a family too is no exception here if the situation comes up thus.. Let's feel happy that the Boss never allows this to happen so easily in the active days of our prime life! 
  • The Boss is the ‘Key Solution’ for many personal problems in life.. As the Boss takes away the Assistant from the scene, many personal problems of the Assistant get resolved automatically perfectly through the own efforts of those who anyhow would be the ultimate beneficiaries of all that.. 
  • Time is Money!’is the Precept the Assistants learn before coming to their Boss.. 'Boss is Money' is the conclusion they carry subsequent to that  for a life time.. 
  • A few Bosses go on shouting at the Assistants eternally to such a level that shouting soon makes those Assistants Experience Self denial with least effort which other wise may need years of rigorous Meditation and Penance but still not guaranteed!
  • Who else pays money and sets rights the defects of a man to the root level in this world other than the Boss?  He / she in that context, may take Work from me in return but that any how I've got to give to the world continuously if I've to live thru' my life.. 
  • Sometimes, a Boss is the Personality who promises a drop back home but drops the Assistant exactly mid way and goes right or left saying urgent work from where either the Assistant has to walk ahead to reach the destination or walk back to the original pickup point to have the usual transport and none can protest even an inch in that context there by the Assistant invariably developing the Master Skills of how to keep calm and smile in the toughest situations of life..
  • A Boss forever says.. “How can you go early?” if I'm leaving a few minutes early from the work, “Can't you wait a few minutes?” if I'm leaving on time, “You are going away so soon!” if I'm leaving after a stay of two hrs, "Welcome dear!" at this moment and "Why are you here disturbing me?" the next moment.. I agree that here, I'm continuously tossed on the frying pan but when I look back, I can see myself to be the fittest personality of my life outside!
  • All the Bosses in the field quickly form a net work and forever keep track of me on what I 'm doing bit by bit and exactly assign my position in the field as is and they never go wrong there.. Who else will take so much interest in me other than my close family members and faithful friends around me?  Sure, an important job very meticulously done!
Of course, equally an important Warning here..
  • 'Having thus understood that the Boss is an indirect Savior in life everywhere, if any Assistant at any point of time decides to go into an 'Obedient Mode' with respect to the Boss, they are very much mistaken as from the next moment, the Boss straight away makes their life surely difficult with some exceptions here and there!

WHAT'S COOL? WHAT'S HOT?

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

"Sometimes, my son isn't listening to me.. He says he knows what to do.. I'm worried if he goes wrong somewhere, how to take care of all that?  I don't know what to do in this situation.." 

Thus was complaining a man to his well-wisher with all sadness on a cool evening..


The well-wisher smiled and said, 


"Don't worry, dear! I'll try to convince and educate the boy.. Let me talk to him once.."


Accordingly he met the boy the next day evening and after few enquiries just said, 


"My dear!  I would like to tell you a story of mine for while.. Don't mind listening?"


The boy said, 


"Sir, You are elderly and you always tell for our good only.. I'm listening!"


"OK.. Listen.. 

I once visited........... and on an afternoon I was away from home sitting in a Park under a tree shade when my family members were busy with certain purchases.. The weather was quite hot and I was feeling exhausted with the heat of the day.. As I was thus taking rest in the cool of the Park under the tree, a very elderly man passing that way saw me, smiled and remarked.. 'Very beautiful weather, isn't it?'


For a moment, I could not understand what he was saying and what to reply but at length smiled and replied, 'Yeah! It looks so!'


'Funny old man.. He doesn't know what to talk!' I was wondering thus for a while after he left.. 

Tell me, what do you think when a man speaks thus?"


"Sir!  Where's the doubt? I can say that his talk is straight away meaningless.." 


OK.. Now listen to what happened further.. 


Days passed and the weather continued to be hot.. And again on one of those days, I had to move out on a particular afternoon.. The place happened to be the same Park Area and it so happened that I had to wait there only for a while..And I decided to rest under the same tree shade for a while as that alone was the bushy tree in that Park..

But soon, I found that even there it was not comfortable and for a minute I was not knowing what to do.. "Who called this place a better place to live? Always hot..hot..and hot alone..." thus I was cursing within myself..

When I was thus sitting there for a while, it so happened that the same elderly man whom I met on the earlier occasion, again came under the shade of the tree saying, "My God! What a heat?  Really hot weather!"

I smiled at him, nodded my head but was laughing within myself.. 'What dear?  Do you remember, sometime back you only called this weather beautiful?  There should be some sense in your talk!'


Now tell me, what do you say over the behavior of the old man?"


"Sir! Where's the doubt? He was totally meaningless in his talk.. Must be a mentally sick man!"


"But you know dear, after a short while, a strange feeling overtook me.. 'Yeah! He was sure right only.. The weather here is pretty hot in summer and these months its max.. The old man was definitely right in calling this weather beautiful 2 months ago, when under the same tree I felt comfortable then.. Now, I couldn't stay there even for a little time as I felt the weather really hot.. How I mistook him at that point of time and thought him to be meaningless? Actually, I was foolish in not able to understand his matured talk!

Now tell me dear, what all your dad tells you out of his maturity that too only for your good, how can that be wrong at all at any point of time in your life?"

THE 'REAL' INDEPENDENCE!


    Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
    A crow got a piece of meat, flew to a branch of tree to eat the same.. But in no time, a dozen crows together followed and tried to attack it.. The crow flew branch to branch to escape from the attack, but the dozen crows equally followed.. Finally it decided to drop the piece of meat to the ground and did the same.. The chasing crows in no time went after the piece of meat madly fighting within themselves leaving the original crow undisturbed..
    A Sage having seen that thought, 'The only way to be at my freedom and Peace in this world is to drop the attachments with me!'

    That's how a Sage amidst us thinks forever!

    But as I'm far, far away from this Strength with my own many desires and interests in the world, the above story for the present should remain only in Books for me and would sure be a pure fiction to me!

    It means in reality, I'm an average man and as I'm interested in having a certain of my own, the same would be under a constant threat of being lost from my hold at any time.. In order to lead a happy life, I should necessarily be strong and attentive all along thus protecting all this of mine thru' my effort and thru' the help of my people around me and in this fashion alone I can truly expand myself and enjoy my freedom continuously..

    No doubt, I should ever be into doing this work and never let this be diluted at any time as protecting my freedom and thus be independent in my life ever becomes a duty with me..

    But let me not forget that at any point of time in my life, I'm equally a dynamo of another extra ordinary feasible action too apart from this ordinary living of my life, as in this process I can always help people weaker than me never limiting it to the lip sympathy or justifying that the existing bad could never be touched upon so easily..

    This unique quality of mine should never be lost sight of and should be continuously nurtured and groomed thru' extending a helping hand to this very effort of securing freedom to the one by my side too and that invariably is a Noble Act in front of me which with my own energies, strengths and skills I can easily do in whichever profession I may be working and whatever life style I may be leading.. And here, there's sure no bar to and no impossibility of this happening in my life!

    During the Independence Struggle of any Nation in the history of the world, the Protests of such Nature alone from every corner added in bits and pieces in time became a huge opposing force to the suppressing Rule of Iron Hand and brought down all those Fortresses and Empires too to nothing in time! 


    So the better belief in the present scenario is that we are never really independent at any time in our life even though much is talked of free living and the real independence is ever with us only the moment we feel within that we forever are one in this struggle.. 

    And here at any time, the lesser freedom noticed with some one by my side itself shows that I have a work with me which my lethargy and selfishness is keeping me off from doing and in this context, let me straight away firmly say a big 'NO' to this attitude at that very moment itself..

    This awakening if truly prevails in me irrespective of my surroundings, I'm sure a free personality within myself and would soon be becoming independent in every aspect of living.. No doubt here!

    NATURE'S PLANS FOREVER ARE 'UNIQUE & DIFFERENT'; NO DOUBT HERE!

    Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
    It was the early morning hrs of the day..

    The man just about to open the tap of his bathroom wash basin, saw a small Black Tiny Creature busily moving at the bottom of the basin and he suddenly stopped that action saying within himself..

    'Thank God! I acted timely.. Else the Tiny Creature would have been washed away in the stream of gushing waters to drain and further bottom down in no time ending it's existence instantaneously.. And knowingly, I have no right to do that where Mother Nature forever Protects..

    Let me do my part of duty here and save it in the right time..

    I should take it out from there and leave outside..

    But, the problem here is.. Any touch would be too much for the Creature..

    Then how to bring it out safely?

    Yes! The better idea here is.. Try with a white paper.. A thin white paper kept near to it will help as the Busily Moving Creature would sure get on to that if I wait.. Then leaving it out would be easier.. Let me do this very important work first.. Rest can definitely wait!"


    The man thus became busy and went to the next room to get a white paper so that the Black Tiny One could be seen clearly on that..

    Meanwhile, his little girl got up from bed, came to the washbasin to have a wash and was about to turn the tap..

    "Ooh! Dear! Wait for one sec.. Don't, don't open it.. I'm coming.." 


    The man shouted from behind and ran to the basin..

    But no way.. That Message could not overshoot the girl's action followed by the man's helpless look down at the basin water gushing out with sudden force.. All instantly happened!

    And the next moment....

    The Tiny Little Black Creature busily moving in the white basin seen crystal clear under the bathroom bright light from above..

    Instantly flew off beautifully from the basin escaping the dangerous gushing waters ready to smash it, flew further up and up and finally vanished from the Scene in no time!

    THE 'WRONG' HAS TO BE ULTIMATELY 'ANSWERED', 'NO GO' HERE!


    He was the man of Money, Authority and Muscle Power..

    "There's no point in Praying to God for each and every difficulty.. As a man, you should first act and then only Pray to your God for closing the issues well.. If you leave out what is in your hands and helplessly look at your God, what the God too can do beyond?”

    Was his assertion all the time and there forever he looked at those three Entities as true saviors.. Life was fantastic and was moving on thus.. 


    Soon, there was a problem..

    “How much Money do you need to do this work? Simply, ask me what you want but never say, I can't do it.. OK?” 


    Thus he spoke with an air of Confidence at the back of his huge Monies but sure touched the easy path there.. And at the end of the day, he offered a routine Prayer to his God for the ultimate take care.. 

    No doubt, the issue was straightened in no time!

    "See! There's nothing what we can't do.. Do that first and then only Pray to your God for the ultimate touch up.. How foolish it is to look at Him for solace at the earliest pain?"

    Again, there was a sizable problem where money might have played its role but that was not enough to resolve the issue..


    “Do you want Mr…..... to put a word to your people.. Just tell me, I can get it done.. No prob.. But, I want this be completed by tomorrow evening positively!” 

    Thus flowed his words of Authority definitely beyond.. And at the end of the day, he offered a routine Prayer to his God for the ultimate take care..

    No doubt there too, the issue was straightened just like that!

    "See! There's nothing what we can't do here.. Do that first and then only Pray to your God for the ultimate touch up.. How foolish it is to look at Him for solace at the earliest pain?"

    The time moved along with all that thinking and suddenly he encountered a very big problem.. Slightly the frightening type..

    “Look, dear! All my Monies are here and whatever Authority you want I can get that.. Just want, your Group to say 'OK' to this.. Hope there won't be anything like 'NO'.. Do you understand what I say..” 


    Thus flowed his words there backed by a hint of Muscle Power if that issue was not taken care.. And at the end of the day, he offered a routine Prayer to his God for the ultimate take care.. 

    No doubt there too once again, the issue was straightened in no time!

    "See! There's nothing what we can't do here.. Do that first and then only Pray to your God for the ultimate touch up.. How foolish it is to look at Him for solace at the earliest pain?

    What's left out now? Anything can be done on this Earth if you just become conscious of your  own Money, Authority and Muscle Power; that's it!”


    Thus started ruling the so called highest self confidence in the man!

    A few years passed thus and calmness ruled all along.. But the Saying goes, 'There's a calm before the storm!' It truly happened there too and that day finally came up.. 


    And there, it was the most trivial and the toughest problem of life!
    • The man quickly looked at his Money.. It was instantly clear there that that could never address the problem in front.. 
    • Next, he looked at his Authority.. It appeared that all the Authority wielded till then could never help complete his job there.. 
    • Finally, he looked at his Muscle Power.. No doubt, that was intact there, but the man himself was not happy to deploy the Power in that context.. 
    A few times the problems of life will be just like that, we can really do nothing there and that's how our life is defined around us!

    Finally having seen no way in front, the man banked upon his own words, looked at the Almighty and prayed within his heart that no one other than the Lord alone would rescue him at that moment as it was sure beyond his Capabilities..

    And no doubt, there was a Response for that which came down as an Instant True Message from Above..

    “Yes! Your own earlier words vouch here very much.. 


    'There's no point in always Praying to God for each and every difficulty.. As a man, you should first act and then only Pray to your God for closing the issues well.. If you leave out what is in your hands and helplessly look at your God, what the God too can do?' 

    You alone have to act here, it's very much in your hands and that action is again nothing but unwinding the wrongs done in your life all these days through a sincere repentance and necessary self punishment for misusing the Monies, Authority and Muscle Power bestowed on you basically for Survival at a decent Level of Living and further doing only good to the world! 


    And remember, presently only when the Self Purification Process from you is first completed with all fairness, I can do my further bit and rescue you out from the present turmoil!”

    THE 'NON-STOP' ADVISING HAD FINALLY BORNE IT'S FRUIT!


    Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
    • “Hi! Why are you looking so dull and weak? Is it the age to be like this?  It appears to any one that you don't have any energy even to stand and ask a question.. Ask firmly what you want.. OK, tell me quickly now!” 
    Thus were the angry shoutings from a man who came across the boy of 15 years in some deal.. Soon the boy was a young man of 22 years..
    • “Young man! What happened to you? Don’t have energy? In your age people should be ready to move mountains.. You seem to be unable to carry even a single piece of stone.. My boy is also like you.. I don’t know what’s wrong with you youngsters…” 
    Were the sarcastic comments from the Parent of his friend when he went to see him at his home.. He then turned to a man of mid 30s….
    • “What's that so much fat on your body? Seem unable to move your body even a bit.. In this age, you'll have so many responsibilities and so many works to do around, how're you going to manage them all? Take care my dear! If health goes everything goes! Trim yourself by joining some Gym..” 
    Were the instant comments from a well-wisher.. Time passed.. He was a middle aged man of 45.. One day, he was on his usual morning walk gasping a little more for breath..
    • “Hi! I am……. I regularly do my walking here and of late am seeing you here almost daily.. You don't look so old and why are you gasping then? You need to maintain your stamina dear.. Else it’s not good for you at this age.. You should do something fast..” 
    Were the soft comments / advice from an elderly co-walker.. He was soon a man of 55 yrs..
    • “Walking is the best for you at this age and further going round all the routine works by walk.. Leave your vehicle and start the activities by foot.. It sure helps you.. There seems to be still some fat in you.. It should get off from you.. A must here!” 
    Were the routine words from his Boss.. Soon he retired and was past 65…. One day, as he was taking his evening Tea at a road side Tea stall, a young boy of about 15 yrs while asking the elderly Shopkeeper muttering a few words, left the item in his hands accidentally spilling something all round..
    • “Hi! Why are you looking so dull and weak? Is it the age to be like this?  It appears to any one that you don't have any energy even to stand and ask a question.. 
    • See that gentleman.. How steadily he took his tea and is drinking so well..What's his age? Learn from him.. Go and ask how he became so trim and steady.. Next time, I'll not excuse you if you create such a nuisance in front of my shop.. 
    • Ask firmly what you want.. OK, tell me quickly now!”
    Were the words from the Tea Stall owner!

    THE OFT FORGOTTEN 'SUPER SKILLS' BEHIND THE SHOW!


    It was Sunday morning hrs and the young man with his group of friends was relaxing at home over some hot tasty stuff as breakfast with steaming Coffee by the side.. The outside was quite chill with the winter low temperatures and the Sun was brightening up the cool weather with certain heat but it was still not good enough for the severe low temperatures of the season.. No problem, the friends were comfortable with their warm clothing on along with inside warmth of the house with sun light warming them up through the glass window..

    The hot topic of the day was how the performance was at the Event of Yesterday's Special Program they attended..
    • "I tell you, none can beat the man who was the centre of attraction behind the yesterday's Event.. His contributions there were unmatched and I bet none could have handled that so easily.. We can never dream of such super skill with anyone in this scenario!"
    • "Not only that, you know at the Event, there was a special arrangement made........... where the skills and capabilities exhibited can never be described on paper..... One in million alone can do this!"
    • "Hats off to the main personality there who excelled....... All of us are nothing in front of this special skill brought out in this context!"
    • "I Know, but you see the one who was active all along...... How much effort he would have put in to organize the whole thing....... Can any one around do that? We all will surely be helpless the moment......."
    • "Leave them all.. Just think of that one specialist in the field.. Had that person been not there, can we say rest all could have done all that so well? My adorations here are forever for him alone!
    The elderly man of wisdom who was sitting in distance looking out simultaneously listening to the discussions too moved to them and said..

    "My dear Boys! Whatever you may talk and express, let me with your kind permission, touch upon some specialized additional skills also that were contributed here without which the whole Event would have been nothing and our comments too would have been nothing here!"

    "Strange Sir!  What other great skills are involved here? I doubt very much and whatever they be, they should be the minor ones only, I'm sure!"


    "Ok!  Let me first say this..
    • There were equally the group of men and women involved who produced and supplied the food we ate all along regularly and kept ourselves fit first..
    • There were equally the group of men and women who had struggled and made skilled clothing supporting all of us everywhere and thus kept us ready..
    • And there were again the group of men and women who struggled and built buildings and Mansions to accommodate every one of us and spend our time coolly..
    • Beyond seen in gradation, there were equally countless number of men and women who worked incessantly exhibiting their own skills doing and producing the rest of what we needed..
    for our today's Event to go on, become a success and be commented upon!

    Don't you feel that all these men and women too here needed Compliments when we talk thus and the rest I can say in the order in which their items were/are being used by all of us? 

    "----------"

    Then, how much am I right here if for a moment, I just forget the existence of all these men and women who provided such Goods and Services around me which truly supported / continue to support so much of my basic living and the associated happiness above which alone I can express / am expressing all this so freely and happily?"
