It was one of the days for the daily laborers starting with the tedious work of 
Tarring up the 6 lane wide road for 
A smooth, shining and perfect getup by evening..

The perfection no doubt needed the right effort put together in 
Cleaning the area, 
Clearing the debris, 
Filling up the pot holes and 
Making it ready for tarring and
The laborers were into it with all seriousness..

Soon, the huge automatic tarring machine started rolling on steadily
Dumping the ready mix behind it on the road with 
A group of laborers simultaneously actively working behind smoothing the little up and downs that came up in the process..

In front of the machine, 
An aged frail man slowly lifting and carrying little debris to the side of the road,
A little away a young mother, the first Teacher of her child having listened to the cry of her little one away under the care of an old lady sticking to her work for a few minutes more helping out the tarring process go smoothly before attending her Baby and
An old lady of the group, carefully checking the use of a torn SUITCASE thrown into a nearby garbage bin
were equally seen 
All simultaneously making sure that their activities do not create a Traffic Jam in the already halved road.. 

The usual daily moving vehicles, 
The luxury cars with shutters up avoiding the dust and noise and 
The buses carrying school going children
passed by on the half cleared road with
A huge Billboard near the active working area seen carrying a discrete message of 
The road to prosperity..

As the Clock ticked on thus endlessly, 
A few in a Celebration mood of going on their vacation, 
A few heading Home for rest after their continued work beyond normal hrs,
A few at the back of certain unexpected emergencies and 
The rest on their on daily routine errand
Moved on endlessly with 

A fallen Rose severed from the plant in the near by park next 
Standing as a mute witness to all that happening!

Looking back at 60+, I was ever interested / prepared myself in instilling 3 Basic Values in the minds of my children as I brought them up in my life invariably making them equip themselves with the fundamentals of leading this life happily having a true meaning to it and thus remain fit..

The A,B,C,D,E,Fs of these 3 Basic Values go thus..

  • Brighten up the prospects of having the best future thru' dedicated learning and the related training but along with that Express too what you are within to have a meaning to your immediate life!
Here brightening up the child's future prospects thru' good learning/training and subsequent employment in his/her adult life is a must else the basic existence itself is indirectly threatened and I had necessarily taught this Value No 1 to my children from the right age without an exception..

In the process, the children might not find time to express themselves which was their basic gist of this very living and thus I equally made my children do that without losing sight of the higher meaning to their lives..

  • Face the inevitable competition with no second thought but along with that Accept too what comes thru' wholeheartedly!
Here, facing competition next to me is inevitable in this life as the concept of 'Survival of the fittest!' ever rules our lives and thus I necessarily imbibed this Value No 2 too in the mind of my children if not directly indirectly from the appropriate age..

In the process, the child should never be put to undue mental stress and thus it was my duty there to continuously make the issue in front look lighter there by tuning my children's minds ultimately ready to accept what comes thru' heroically and thus remain stable!
  • Care for and share with others without an exception but along with that Discipline yourself in respect of time, money and energy!
Here, caring/sharing is no doubt the divine expression and one should necessarily get into this habit from childhood. Thus imbibing this Value No 3 in my children again was my responsibility and I never side lined this at any point of time as they should grow ultimately into total personalities in their lives..

In the process, disciplining oneself in respect of his/her time, money and energies is a must and thus it became my duty there to tune up my children's minds to the ever limited availability of these resources and the necessity of doing all that within those limits!

The Post is written in line with the requirement of this week's IndiSpire Prompt What are the 3 most important values that you would teach your child? #responsibleparent

  • "The precious garden plants need better watering. The heat is more and if we don't water them regularly, I doubt their proper growth. Water all the plants in the front and back yards till the land becomes wet with moisture. In my bungalow
Water is plenty and never in shortage!"
  • The family will be sitting in the front open space in the evenings for relaxation and to have some cool air. Sometimes the neighbors drop in. The weather is very hot. Spray lots of water the front area to make it sufficiently wet. That'll sure cool the area towards evening. In my bungalow
Water is plenty and never in shortage!"
  • The fountain in front is not working properly. I called the repair person and he may be at anytime here before noon. Be ready and help him out in his job. I want a min height of... ft of the rising waters in front of the house and nothing less. The beauty of rising water jets is the unique specialty of my bungalow. You should guide the repair man and do the required. In my bungalow
Water is plenty and never in shortage!"
  • The bath tub is to be filled full with water. Yesterday you missed doing it and left early. When you come for work, you should come prepared to stay full time, isn't it? Today at least, please see that the tub is filled full and kept ready for my bath.. In my bungalow
Water is plenty and never in shortage!"
  • The back yard and garage need some floor cleaning. I want you to finish that too today itself with the floor cleaners and water.. In my bungalow
Water is plenty and never in shortage!"

"No problem, Sir! I'll finish all these works. Today, I need to go early for 2 hrs. And tomorrow I need to take half day leave!"

"What, dear? Yesterday suddenly you went early without informing in advance. Today and tomorrow you will be off part of the day. If you go away like this daily, how these works will be finished? What's the urgency?"

  • "Sir! In my present rented house, since a fortnight the water supply is affected. All these days, we had to buy water from out side for our essentials. Yesterday, we saw a different house in a new area readily available for rent without this problem and decided to move there. 
  • Today evening, we are going there to check once again the position of water supply in that area and move to the area tomorrow. No problem, we'll finish our entire shifting by half day easily. You may know, for people like us,
Water is never plenty and ever in shortage!"

  • The Boss never praises me easily and if not uttered a word for the moment, that itself is the biggest praise of my life. If really praised a bit longer, there's sure another meaning to it.. 
I'm soon going to be replaced!
  • Many times, I am cornered by my Boss for no fault of mine. But that's nothing compared to the double cornering my boss faces from the Top..
I'm sure the privileged individual in my Role!
  • The Boss' scoldings are two way blessings for me.. 
No more major scoldings in my personal life except the routine ones and forever I'm capable of smiling in times of many difficulties of my life!
  • My Boss can max scold me that too only sometimes.. 
I'm unharmed with no visible signs of physical damage all along!
  • Whenever I am singled out at my work by my Boss, I should smile heartfelt within because 
My job is intact!
  • The Boss is always in office before me and I shouldn't feel unhappy for that earlier presence because the other way, 
I've to play that Role too in addition to mine for a while!
  • The Boss is never happy with myself leaving office in office hrs on many of my personal works except very few.. The indirect message here forever is
'Delegate.. Delegate.. Delegate!'
  • I may work all the 24 hrs of the day but in the end, the Boss invariably demands another hr of work from me and
Sure corrects it to 2 in no time!
  • When the Boss puts my Colleague along with me in my work, it never means that I'm helped out at my work.. 
That's the best place to train my Colleague of course, sure to takeover reins from me soon!
  • From Boss, forever the worst and the best comments are
'OK, leave it.. Call (so and so)' and 'You got to improve a lot!'

A man was a little more calculative and was always spending monies somewhat below his level. A friend of him was a man of less calculative nature and was always spending his finances somewhere a little beyond his level.

Both were leading their lives with their families with those disciplines each justifying his own way of doing.

The spendthrift used to say,

  • “There's no tomorrow in life..
  • Let me live today’s life better by spending my monies a bit more..
  • What's the use of storing every pie when nothing comes with us?
  • Let me save but equally let me live myself too today!”
The other used to contest,
  • “Life is long..
  • How can I throw away even small amounts for these flimsy enjoyments which bring ultimately nothing in my life?
  • Why not I keep even small monies too for future as it's said that in tough situations, even a Rupee looks like a lakh?
  • Let me save and let me have a secured future!" 
Thus, both the friends never used to agree with each other!

One day both of them happened to meet a wise elderly man who was their well-wisher too in their lives.. They expressed to him their own views in respect of the right way of living the life.

The elderly listened to both of them, smiled and said,

“My dear! In life the true understanding should always be like this,

  • There's no reasonable tomorrow for me that needs lesser monies to live my accustomed life but there is no better tomorrow for me that needs greater monies to live my happy life!
  • My reasonable monies sure stay with me till the end with just a good care from my end and my ill gotten monies sure slip off from me towards the end in spite of a meticulous care from my end!
  • Money beyond is not required for me today but it's sure mine if I take care of it today and money minimum is required for me tomorrow but it's sure not mine if I take ease with it today! 
  • Throwing away money with ease today takes away my hold on my decent living tomorrow and hoarding money with greed today takes away my hold on my happy living tomorrow! 
  • Charity done beyond is a dent in my decent living and is equally a dent in the receiver's dignified living. That done meager is again a dent in my dignified living and is equally a dent in the receiver's decent living!
With this knowledge at the back, let us live for today with reasonable spending, plan for tomorrow with reasonable outlay and save reasonable monies for the day after!

Let us be disciplined thus, all along our lives with a constant additional reminder at the back of our minds,
  • ‘I am only a Trustee for my finances as they never belong to me. As a Trustee, I'll do my job of using, protecting and improving my finances through the best known methods. This alone is the Sacred Job given to me in this world!’
And if followed truly, this whole of discipline is sure the ultimate financial wisdom in our lives!”

Around 50 years ago when telephones were rare in the country and plastic was unknown in food industry, a young man on his official tour took his aged mother along with him to show the temples of pilgrimage importance around the place of his visit.

The son with his mother checked into a hotel in the early morning hrs for their stay in the new place. After readying himself, the son told his mother that he would finish his office work quickly and try to come back by lunch time so that they both could have lunch in a good hotel and then go around the place seeing the important temples in that area. The mother agreed and the son left.

But his office work continued and so the son could not make it out for lunch. When it was nearing lunch hr, he got good hot lunch packed in a steel carrier and sent to his mother through one of his attendants asking him to wait there and get back the carrier after his mother finished eating her food. The attendant being a local had a difficulty of communicating to his mother and so the son sent a chit writing in his mother tongue a short communication which read thus..
  • "Ma! I am sending the carrier lunch thru' my attendant for you as I'm busy with my work and can't come now to the hotel to take you for lunch. 
  • You finish eating and send back the carrier. I'll eat later after finishing my work.
  • Evening we can go out for our dinner!" 
Strangely, after an hour the attendant brought back the boxes intact. The son got wondered and could not understand the reason for that. The attendant informed that he handed over the food and the chit to his mother and collected the boxes when she returned them to him. The son too immediately couldn't do anything as he had to rush for his work.

Finally after finishing his work by evening, he quickly came back to hotel and asked his mother,

“Ma! Why didn't you eat the meal I sent to you?”

The mother replied,

"I read your chit and opened the lunch boxes. After seeing the contents, I felt like not eating and send back the carrier as is!"

"Why? You did not like the items?"

"No.. I thought the quantities are not enough for both of us!"

"Why both of us? I wrote that I'd eat my lunch at my Office!"

The mother showed the chit sent by him. The son read it allowed..
  • "Ma! I am sending the carrier lunch thru' my attendant for you as I'm busy with my work and can't come now to the hotel to take you for lunch.
  • You finish eating and send back the carrier. I'll eat later after finishing my work.
  • Evening we can go out for our dinner!"
The mother said,

“I thought that you'll also be eating part of that food!”

The son instantly understood the way she interpreted his words in the 2nd line of his message. He laughed aloud and said,

"Then at least, you could have eaten half of it and sent back the remaining. Why you didn't eat anything at all?"

The mother smiled and said,

“Dear! Don't I know your hunger? That full carrier food is also sometimes not enough for my son when he is really hungry.. I can never take a chance here and make you go hungry!”

The ambitious young Rep of people's group in the province decided on a day to bring to the notice of his Ruler the wrongs being done in his ruling.

Soon with the required info as he reached the venue of seat of power, he found that he had to go thru' 3 Levels of Screening Court Officials.

The 1st Level Officials said,

  • "Prove yourself that you are the person as per the papers!"
The young man took pains and proved that thru' certain push and pull. As he moved further,

The 2nd Level Officials said,
  • "Why not we ourselves resolve your issue?"
The young man took pains and persuaded them thru' certain push and pull. As he moved further,

The 3rd Level Officials said,
  • “Hope the big man will not be disturbed by this!”
The young man took pains and convinced them thru' certain push and pull. As he moved further,

He was finally lead to the Chamber of the Ruler. The young man wished him and quickly presented to him in brief the problems people were facing and requested him to intervene in the matter.

The Ruler listened to all, smiled and said,

"I'm ready to address these issues right now and give a solution but my implementation has to pass thru' the same 3 levels you presently passed thru' to reach people..

Whatever resistance you encountered in meeting me, double of that will be faced by my papers while going out with the same

The 3rd Level Officials saying,
  • “Let’s hope the big man has not decided wrongly!”
And delaying the movement giving reasons which none can understand including myself,

The 2nd Level Officials saying,
  • "Why not we ourselves decide on the quantum?"
And try to cut down the original proposals to half or less with such an innovative convincing which again none can understand including myself and

The 1st Level Officials saying,
  • "Prove yourself that you are the person as per the papers!"
To the ultimate beneficiaries making them go round and round endlessly!

In the process before one evil is controlled, either
  • The beneficiaries may cease to exist or 
  • They may lose interest or 
  • Another new evil enters the system and fills up the place of the earlier one!"
Hearing that, the young man became dull and looked at the Ruler with a blank face. The Ruler continued..

"Do not feel despair..

Ultimately, we the like minded people, the Ruler and the Ruled together with a never failing inspiration in our hearts Viz.,


the Ruled all along doing the max feasible at his/her level fully out of his/her own freedom, alone can push thru' such resisting system by our side and help address the problems of people in the best possible way!"

That evening the boy turned 6+ was unhappy.

  • "What's the matter, dear?"
The grandpa asked.

"His class teacher promised to put him on top for the day but forgot to do that!"

The daughter replied with a hidden smile.

  • "So another boy's name was there?"
Asked the grandpa..

"No She forgot that and his chance has gone for the day.. And he is pestering me to remind her on this!"

  • "Dear! What's the big thing here? If not today another day she'll do that!"
The grandpa tried to console the child.

"No My chance is gone. Grandpa! Will you please talk to my teacher?"

The boy pleaded.

  • "No problem, dear! I'll sure ask her. But before that shall we do a funny thing? You sure will like it!"
The boy instantly wide eyed asked,

"Okay.. Tell me that!"

  • "Get a paper, scale, pencil and an eraser!"
The boy quickly arranged the 4 and said,

"Here they are!"
  • "Draw a straight line of 5 cm length!"
The boy drew the line of 5 cm length and looked at his grandpa..
  • "Now Draw a line of 7 cm next it!"
He did that too and looked at his grandpa.
  • "Show me the smaller one!"
The boy instantly showed the 5 cm line.
  • "Now.. Erase the 7 cm line and in it's place draw a 3 cm line!"
The boy again did that silently not knowing why his grandpa was asking all that..
  • "Now tell me which line is the bigger one?"
"The 5 cm line!"
  • "See.. 2 minutes back, your 5 cm line was smaller but now it is bigger!"
The boy was instantly mesmerized with the age old trick played by his grandpa..
  • "See.. Dear! These big and small are so much changing. One minute it is big and the next moment it is small. Should we really care for these quick changes?"

Said the boy with a certain firmness seen on his face.
  • "And the top and below are also like that.. We need not bother for them!"
The boy silently nodded his head. The grandpa took the boy closer and said,
  • "Dear! You shouldn't bother for these. They'll be changing a little this way and that way. But if you do good work all the year, I'm sure you'll be in the top few.. That's enough for us.. So close your eyes and say..
'I'll study well all the year and do what my teacher and mom says.. That's good enough for me!'

The boy closed his eyes and sincerely repeated what his grandpa had said.. The grandpa patted the boy and said with a big smile,
  • "Very good, my boy.. Now.. Take your bike and let's go to our park.. You can practice your learning.. After that, I'll buy your favorite ice cream.. Okay?"
"Yessssss.. I'm ready, Grandpa!"

Screamed the boy with an unknown happiness and ran towards his bike..

Having instilled in his boy the fundamental concept of facing healthy competition thru' good work at that young age, the grandpa felt highly satisfied and the next moment they both moved on towards the park!

For the first time he being in the driver’s seat of the car and the Instructor by the side, as the vehicle straight pulled into dense traffic with little control from his end, the single thought haunted him all along,

  • “Can I wade through this hazardous traffic and drive to my destination?”
And he was totally a lost person..

After few classes of learning, on a day when he changed the gear without fully pressing the clutch pedal and got an instant comment from the Instructor with a stern look on his face,

  • “My car is gone. Why are you so nervous?” 
He silently bore the brunt of that anger..

During the driving test, when he couldn't meet the important parallel parking requirement with the Instructor simultaneously making the sarcastic comment,

  • "Oh! You couldn't do it, is it?" 
He was heard murmuring within..

"It's really difficult!"

During that time one day, when he sat in his own car to practice learning with his friend by the side, it became a new tension in him and the same soon climaxed when he failed to pull through a steep up slope with the vehicle refused to pull, some one said from behind,

  • "Hi! What are you doing? Move!"
And he requested them saying,

"Please wait.. My friend will pull the vehicle!"

Soon as a permanent driving license holder, he was on the road himself confident of driving into every corner but unexpectedly on a day drove into a narrow lane, got held up and when shouted upon with scoldings,

  • "Do you have licence? Move!"
He gave back,

"Yeah! Every one makes mistakes. Why don't you wait for a minute?"

With almost an year’s constant driving at the back of seeing many odd behaviors of people on road, one day having squarely failed in a planned overtaking attracting the attention of near by drivers who out of frustration when shouted aloud,

  • “Why don't you be at home instead of coming on to road and troubling us like this?” 
He replied with an equal anger,

"Talk sensible and mind your business!"

Next few years passed with no incidents on the road at the back of a matured feeling in mind that driving was really interesting and helped everywhere in movement, when suddenly a beginner on the road made a mistake and came right in his way and had a narrow escape with some one commenting from behind,

  • “That boy is a learner. As an experienced man, what are you doing?"
Apt he replied,

"What's your problem? I know how to take care!"

As further years rolled on with no look back, the then well experienced man on the road one day, as he was parking his vehicle on the side of a narrow road and another less experienced driver driving through requested,
  • "Can you move your vehicle a bit in?"
He said with a big smile,

"A vehicle double the width of your car can easily pass through the passage. I think, you need a few more driving lessons!”

Soon he was the seasoned driver of late forties forever having a basic responsibility of safety on road in his mind and when commented by a passenger on a long drive saying,

  • "Great driving.. So smooth, safe and comfortable all along without a single jerk!"
He smiled and replied with total confidence,

"Driving is an art and each individual responds to it in his/her own style and each is correct in his/her own way except a few. It's equally a complex psychology of an individual developed only through years of experience being constantly on road with the vehicle taking care of people moving around along with the requirements of inmates for ever keeping an eye on safety aspects with a pro-thinking in the mind,

  •  'All along, there is a man around who can unexpectedly do a costly mistake and let me be on watch for that too!'”

“Sir, I am doing my best around. But still I attract criticism in my doings. If I miss anything there, I agree that it's my fault and I've to correct the same. And I'm ready too to make up any loss or damage that resulted because of that..

But people around me never understand this and ever talk something or other on my doing saying that what I do is not the right..

I'm unhappy and sometimes feel like stopping all these works and get off from the scene!"

“Dear! To distinguish between the right and the wrong is not that simple.. What appeals to me max here is a little more correct compared to what appeals to others. That’s all..

The infinite gap between the Original Truth and what I perceive in life is my ignorance. This is associated with simultaneous feelings of

Guilt and

In me together called strife in life.. No doubt, when it strikes,

It appears profound,
Feels like that life is not worth living
With a deep negative feeling of something missing!

The reason for this feeling is that my ‘self’ is not recognized for a moment and I wish very much the same recognized at any cost!

Tell me, how much am I correct here in pointing out people around me when actually I too can't cross my limit and understand my right a bit better?

If you catch this point, it's evident that the only safe way of living the moment is..

‘Continue doing all the essential works without a stop!’

No doubt, a difficult task and those moments of continuing doing the essential works do look like a total loss of personality.. A feeling of

'My kingdom is lost!'

But when I involve thus patiently, that’s all.. I've conquered myself and

'My kingdom is back to me!'

In a definite time depending on the level of hurt, I would be seeing an equal level of calmness along with the good accrued out of the right deeds done by me in time!

Remember the Sun God ever rises in the East and never stops setting in the west after 12 hrs of duty of heating the half globe and continue that for the next 12 hrs on the other half without a sec rest let whatever be happening on the earth..

Isn't it my No 1 duty here to pay the Salutations to the God of our life with a promise that I too never stop doing my job in the right way known to me without a single concern for what others talk on my doing equally not questioning on their limitation?"

At work I can't have my free will and my job too simultaneously.. If not understood, better I rewind and check myself whether I

  • Stood in the queue praying to every God on the earth for getting that job or
  • Was in my easy chair with the prospective Employer/s standing in queue at my door!

Doing something for sometime not according to my liking is work.. Seen thus in my work life most of the time except on few occasions

  • Let the sales be soon handed over to the smarter one by the side!

  • Every child is born with certain original traits in him/her. 
  • Again, thru' birth, he/she acquires some of the parents'/their hierarchical traits as genetics and 
  • He/she acquires a few traits thru' interactions with the society and people in general as he/she grows up.. 
There's almost nil control on the original traits of the child that come thru' his/her birth and genetics and later, any change there if takes place for the good, it's sure either luck or by the grace of god.

Mostly, these traits have to be modulated and guided in a streamlined way by the parents for the good of the individual and society instilling certain new behavioral traits and values in the child's mind constantly taking off from the 

Carelessness and 
Criminal tendencies 

that are likely to crop in thru' the negligence of parent and indirect suppression in the form of rigid discipline..

The parents' resources which vary over a wide range in our society in fact have less impact on this criminalizing attitude unless they go below the basic survival level and any decent resource can do a wonderful job here if the love and attention are shown in abundance without fail.

This love and attention from the parent truly plays a great role in streamlining the constant learning process that goes on in the child without a break which basically helps a personality to grow and in return help the world thru' the similar love and care.

In this scenario, the child silently expects his/her parent to support him/her as he/she..

  • Continuously explores never taking that around for granted making the parent sure test his/her patience.. 
  • Keeps off from an orderly life around making the parent refrain from insisting too much in that direction..
  • Goes on accepting what comes in front easily without many reservations forcing the parent make a note of and allow that expression.. 
  • Eagerly awaits to respond to love alone and nothing less of it at any time which the parent should show in abundance.. 
  • Digs into the unrealistic issues keeping parent ready with the right answer.. 
  • Readies to learn many quickly thru' the right parental support by the side.. 
  • Constantly believes and observes never forgetting the minute response and complacence from others making that go into memory and work to perfection in later life all along driving the parent to be supportive there.. 
  • Craves for nothing but continuous attention, nil pity and no help in issues of nil danger everywhere keeping the parent on his/her toes.. 
  • Takes all that required development thru' play shunning all along the targets if any imposed and expects the parent to be truly supportive on that.. 
  • Other than allowing mild saying here and there, forever shuns disciplining by the parent straight away demanding the parent to be disciplined first and the last.. 
  • If imposed upon a milder discipline too, tries to deviate expecting the parent allow a part of that forcing him/her eternally guide, discipline, allow concession, restrict again and thus continue.. 
  • Demands instilling confidence by the parent beyond health and safety care to enable learn max in the early years.. 
  • Makes the parent take pains and monitor the daily schooling work rather than aim at looking the Progress Report in end and 
  • May not say against the parent's advice but would sure be watching the actions therein which would be memorized in total ever expecting the parent do the right first and then alone talk!
If truly made a note of all these and supported through 

Care and 

the parent sure helps in molding his/her child into the future young and energetic adult useful to the society and the surroundings thus weaning off his/her ward from developing the possible criminal mind/attitude!

    • I'm no one to change others as I've to change myself alone.. 
    But the opposite alone goes on endlessly with me as I am sure that I've changed enough!
    • I am no great chooser in my life except accepting that in front 'As Is' and modifying my 'Expectations' accordingly..
    But no use of thinking all that as I've already bundled my 'Sure Expectations' neatly packed and kept in my cup-board.. Beyond, I never feel less at any time for choosing in my life!
    • I hardly know myself..
    But ask me, I can talk extempore tons on myself endlessly!
    • Every one around me sure loves his/her freedom very much..
    But I happily go on stopping others' aim/plan in life till that person physically stops me from doing that!
    • My activities are just a speck amidst the Universal Happenings..
    But strangely I feel that I alone move the world!
    • My extra capabilities should ultimately help the less capable.. 
    But auctioning them for a price which the needy would sure pay at the back of an unnecessary fear I instill in them is very much interesting to me!
    • Truly speaking, my mind plays endless dramas in front of me never allowing me to be under my control.. 
    But strangely, I feel that I'm in perfect control of myself one hundred percent!
    • In reality, any extra movement of mine than the required is a hindrance in the world.. 
    But I constantly aim without a single hesitation to expand myself to the nook and corner of the same world!
    • If I can just manage my time well without pain, I have truly conquered myself.. 
    But I just kill this time continuously thru' too many avocations of mine coolly and safely storing my pain for future release in an avalanche form!
    • If I can't dance to my tune, my life is nothing but a prison.. 
    But many times, I happily welcome my prison by continuously dancing to the tune of my people indirectly feeling within that I love them a lot in the process!
    • If I fail, I invariably have the message ‘Wake up!’.. 
    But instead I quickly sleep more there 'Escaping' into my own world happily!
    • Had I known my limitation, part of my job would have been done well..
    But since I can't think of it, I forever end up necessarily blaming my fate for all my troubles!
    • Had I simply stood for a moment to the others’ adverse comments without reacting, many of my tensions would have gone for a life time..
    But since 'Giving Back' is very interesting without a say, those tensions never leave me for a life time!

    The young man worked 8 hrs producing a product and claimed the salary as his right..

    The inner voice said..

    • "You may claim that as a right now but soon that can be secured only when you bring out the quality item in standard time!"
    He put in good effort, achieved that and then expected the salary as his right in general..

    The inner voice said..

    • "You may claim that right now but soon that can be secured only when the quality item produced in standard time is ultimately sold in the market!"
    Coupled with extra knowledge and good effort, he achieved that too, got his next promotion and expected the salary with all firmness..

    The inner voice said..

    • "You may claim that salary now but soon that can be secured only when the quality items produced in standard time in your group are sold in the market!"
    With added smartness to his the then capabilities, he could achieve all that, got his next promotion and decided to receive his salary..

    The inner voice said..

    • "You may receive that salary now but soon that can be secured only when the quality items produced in standard time in your dept are sold in the market with the competitor reasonably kept away!"
    Backed by seniority and vast experience, he could achieve almost that in front, got his next promotion and waited for the salary..

    The inner voice said..
    • "You may get that salary now but soon that can be secured only when the quality items produced in standard time in your division are sold in the market with the competitor reasonably kept in distance and the customer ready with the next year's order!"
    Finally, as luck favored him, he worked day and night, could achieve the ultimatum and got his next promotion all along not bothered to check the monies he received into his bank account..

    Soon on a day, the CEO messaged him,
    • “Yesterday, one of our men went to the Customer Meeting with a mark of spilled soup on his dress. The Customer instantly got put off with the bad appearance and presentation.. 
    • Later he conveyed to me that he is thinking of placing the next Order on M/s……….. You know, he is our Potential Customer covering half of our orders and unless..
    We offer a temporary price cut on our products, he can't be pleased.. Let's go ahead with this proposal and let every one of us be prepared to take a cut in our salaries for few months from now onwards and........!”

    I searched some of the dictionaries in the library in my neighborhood;
    The meaning given there couldn't be understood in depth.. 

    I went thru' lot of fiction material related to the entity; 
    The concept was seen still evading me..

    I discussed in depth with the learned personalities;
    Their wordings made me sure more confused.. 

    I questioned the wise earnestly; 
    I couldn't make out what they talked.. 

    I decided to part with certain of my resources to buy the entity; 
    The entity was simply found unavailable there..

    I travelled here and there; 
    I could never catch hold of it anywhere..

    I probed the nature around in total solitude;
    The answer was not found there too..

    I visited the few Monasteries known to me; 
    I got silence alone as the answer..

    I might have visited 'n' number of temples in the process;
    God was not ready to bless me with that understanding..
    I wouldn't have left clarifying even with the inventor of the word itself had I chanced to meet that Personality; 
    I had my own doubts whether there too, I would have got an answer to my satisfaction..
    That Auspicious day, I reached home and before I could knock on the door, as
    MY MOM 
    opened the door for me and welcomed me with a big smile..
    was seen laughing at me for my foolishness all these days saying..

    'How could you forget and go round and round endlessly searching for the meaning of this simple word 
    when the very 
    was in front of you.. 
    All these years 
    incessantly working for your uplift and betterment
    bringing you up from nothing to what you are today?'

    That day I woke up at 0530 AM..

    • "God.. The sharp light is already up.. Let me pull the curtains in!"
    were my instant grumbling remarks..

    At 0800 hrs I got readied for my Office and moved on..

    • "The heat for the day started!"
    was my murmur that followed soon..

    The bus was crowded and the heat soon made me sweat profusely..

    • "When this agony will end?"
    were my the then thoughts that ran parallel..

    Reached my Office and switched on AC..
    • "At last I'm saved for the day!"
    was my instant gratifying feeling within..

    The power was down during lunch hr with the hot lunch in front and the fan standstill on top..
    • "Why not take a short vacation to a cool place?"
    was my feeling of escape at that point of time..

    Feeling desperate thus that night as I dozed off after my dinner, suddenly I heard a knock on my door. As I got up and opened the door, my friend was seen at the door and seeing me he screamed aloud saying,

    'Dear Are you still sleeping? ! Do you know? It's 8 AM now and the sun has not come up. We are at a loss not knowing why it had happened. It appears to be our doom's day!"

    I was taken aback.. The friend was heard saying something beyond..

    Suddenly the alarm set to 0530 AM went off wildly and I was shaken from the bad dream. So to say a very bad dream..

    As I rubbed my eyes and looked outside my window, in the distant horizons I could see the morning twilight with the chirrup of birds very much confirming that nothing had gone wrong and the precious Rejuvenating Gifts of Nature are intact around me.. 

    In few minutes, as the Sun God appeared on the horizon, instantly I came to full attention and folding my hands Offered my Morning Prayer thus..

    “God! Forgive me for the way I thought as the heat around me had gone up.. In the process I forgot that 

    You do an Eternal Job of keeping me at peace by heating my surroundings enough for the day so that my energy levels are brought back from the earlier day’s cooling in which I took so much relaxation.. 

    The eco-balance is perfectly maintained and the timely rains are guaranteed with the right evaporation that took place around thru’ this heating alone..

    The so called man made life extending into night with so many lights and sounds around became possible only from the basic energies that You had passed on to all so generously.. 

    The fuels one burns in moving around many times where the free movements are never questioned are again part of these energies that have come from You alone.. 

    And you daily without resting for a second having completed your job on one half globe, go to the other half to continue doing Your Job allowing me freely reap the benefits of your energies..

    I hereby bow down and offer my Salutations to You!"

    An old Post that straight addresses this week's IndiSpire Prompt

    It looks very much evident that I am perfect but when the right time comes, I suddenly notice that I am nowhere near to it. Write a post justifying this reality! #theperfectme

    is edited, abridged and brought out here not altering the core message a bit..

    A young man who was straight forward having no faith in any of the staunch beliefs often used to assert,
    • "What's the point in stopping active work and the other streamlined activities in the name of these blind beliefs? It's almost a sin to do that!" 
    Once when he vouched on his health and spoke something, some one said, "Touch Wood!" Without attempting doing that, he instantly asserted,
    • "It's Okay.. Ultimately it's me that should face anything, isn't it? Let me see the end of this!"
    And when a similar thing happened the 2nd time but the health issue was of a bit serious in nature, still he remarked with all coolness,
    • "Once we've a body means there would be certain ups and downs.. No point in relating all that to something which has no base!"
    But unfortunately when that happened a 3rd time with an associated greater agony in facing it, the young man got shaken up a bit feeling almost helpless and confided to a well-wisher..
    • "I never believed here all these days but now, I am at my wits' end totally shaken up on my own rationalization!"
    The elderly looked at him, smiled and said,

    "Dear! That's where this 'my confidence' plays an eternal trick on me based on my own ideas and feelings of 'What I am' in my life.. This 'What I am' is such a variant in our life ranging from almost the basic mundane side of life at one end to the highest spiritual side of life at the other end like..

    ### When a professional swimmer was with his friends, one close friend asked,
    'If all of us are in a danger of drowning, whom do you save first.. Me or any other?'
    The swimmer instantly said,
    'Me, of course!'

    ### Many may say
    'My child is highly intelligent!'
    But ultimately, there's no truth in that saying because the world has people of varying intelligence!

    ### When a philosophical elderly gentleman said,
    'In practice, the normal ‘I'of ours can never see the situation in front as is!',
    The bewildered friend queried,
    'How can the normal ‘EYE’ not see the happenings in front?'

    ### When the ardent Aspirant knocked at the door of his Master, the Master asked,
    'Who's that?'
    'It's me!'
    The Aspirant said..
    'Me means who?'
    'To Know that only, I am here!'

    ### When the Great Saint was asked to describe 'I', He said
    'A salt doll went into the deep sea to find its depth, in the process itself got merged with the sea waters and ultimately there was the single one sea alone proving the Sacred Saying, Aham Brahma Asmi, the highest level of identifying the 'Me' within!'

    See, dear!

    When the Great man was asked to be cautious about his mighty enemies, he said
    'They may torture me or kill me and I am ready for both!'
    And He meant it a 100%!


    When the Master was questioned for not working and spending time in talking on Philosophy, He smiled and said,
    'I need not work.. I do not have any desire to satisfy.. For my body maintenance, some of you may feed me and if not let this body end!'
    He exactly meant what He spoke!

    Such Truthful Assertions from Great Souls alone ultimately stand the test of time but not the usual ones I make in my day to day life!

    So in life, 'What I am' is surely unknown to me at this stage of life with my level of understanding as that needs 

    Boundless energies, 
    Infinite concentration and 
    Limitless sacrifices

    At my end before establishing the Truth therein.. Till that time, it is ever a safe practice for me to 

    Pause and 

    Rather than quickly affirm saying 'I am sure that!'"
