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!
Work supports living; emotional bondage appears so.. Next time, whenever I try to emphasize in my Office on my family issues in front of urgent work, let me quickly come to senses and find out which choice is better
  • Safeguarding the family beyond or
  • Taking up my job with all seriousness! 
With my Boss over a knotty problem, let me evaluate which words are better.. The
  • The pleading words.. “What else I can do?" or 
  • The questioning words.. "What can I do?” 
There's always a gap between 'what is right' and 'what my subordinate thinks as right'.. Man Management forever is
  • Living to the level of that thinking right within the Code of Conduct and
  • Constantly trying to educate the person on the real right! 
In any business when certain monopoly ends and competition surfaces the hitherto oft used words,
  • 'Cool', 'Funny' and 'Authoritative' instantly get replaced with strange words
  • 'Hot','Serious' and 'Submissive!'
As laxity takes a certain hold on the working man the earlier
  • 'Laughing man' at work soon becomes a 
  • 'Laughing Stock' with no great job to do!
I should never respond to my work as if it belongs to me.. I should ever see that some one who is paying me needs me as
  • My skills are mine alone till 
  • My prospective Employer takes cognizance of them! 
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
  • 'Sweat', 'Swearing' and 'Condemnation' become sure the sweet words with
  • 'Ease','smile' and 'Praise' invariably becoming sour!
It's ever difficult to get a knowledgeable seller..
  • Let knowledge continue when it starts speaking more but 
  • 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!

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
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!'"

The miser got off from giving a charity and declared..  
"My money sure takes care of me whatever!" 
The wise man smiled and said, 
"Whatever, your progeny sure takes care soon to see that it really doesn't take care of you!"

The spendthrift spent away freely and declared..
"My God sure takes care of me whatever!"
The wise man smiled and said, 
"Whatever, your God sure expects you first to take care of yourself with that given by Him before He takes care of you!"

The miser held Rs 250 tight to his chest and said,
"It costs Rs 250 a week and I can't part with such sums in my life!"
The wise man smiled and said, 
"The problem is our life has another max of 2500 such weeks on the average and beyond, those notes will sure be taken off your chest as they burn!"

The spendthrift held Rs 2500 loose in his hand and said,
"It' costs just Rs 2500 a week and my living status can easily afford it!"
The wise man smiled and said, 
"The problem is even a million has got just 400 such 2500s but our life on the average is sure more than 400 weeks!"

The miser mused,
"I love to protect my money in the best possible way!"
The wise man smiled and said, 
"No problem.. The smart people around you looking to pocket it in the end will sure help you in that!"

The spendthrift burst out,
"I love to enjoy the world with my money in the best possible way!"
The wise man smiled and said, 
"No problem.. The smart people around you looking to relax at your cost will sure help you in that!"

"Sir! Myself and my friend of the same age and qualifications entered our jobs 5 yrs back on the same day.. Today at 40, he surprisingly got his promotion and I was silently denied. The moment I think of this, I become agitated and I don't like any more this friend of mine.

How can I get over this feeling of jealousy in me and become normal? Can you guide me in this line?"

"Dear! I understand your problem and I tell you.. You shouldn't allow this evil jealousy presently simmering in you to takeover you fully. You may not know but out of my personal experience, I very much saw the harm this dreaded one does in our life making us totally helpless.

You know.. I've written my own song on this enemy and by facing worst situations, I've finally mastered it, tamed it and brought it in my control.. You too can do it if you go deep into it's basic structure.. If not controlled in time, this jealousy of yours soon

Jeopardizes your interests
Endangers your safety 
Attacks you with greater intensity 
Lures you again at the next opportunity 
Overpowers you in the nick of the moment and 
Unleashes it's evil intentions on you making you play the eternal game of 
Sobbing profusely with crocodile tears and 
Yielding temporarily thru' a smile
In front of others all along making you retain a volcano within!'

To tell you frankly, this used to be the song of my life all these years and I sang it so deep in my heart and bi-hearted it to the core as I passed thru' the stages of life with similar experiences, thus went deep into it's structure, grasped it at it's root and eliminated it once for all..

Just a minute.. My phone is ringing. Yeah! This friend of mine is on the other end.. We both were contemporaries in many aspects of our lives..

Hello.. Yeah.. It's me.. How are you? What? Is it? So nice to hear the good news.. Great.. Oh.. You are giving a party.. Yes.. You should do it.. Sure I'd be your No 1 guest there.. Ok.. The thing is.. I'm a bit busy now.. Very urgent matter.. I'll call you back in an hr's time.. Bye then.. All the best!

It's just some personal call.. I need to call him back in an hr's time.. Okay.. Follow what all I told you.. Sure good will happen and you'll be out of your problem soon.. Bye then!"

Subsequent to all that as the thoughts ran deep the mind of the elderly man, he was seen after years of calmness

Murmuring within which 
Slowly increasing to a muttering level soon
Rose to a cursing level and finally made him
Rage with an unknown anger deep within..

As the thoughts of the extra benefit his friend got at that age over him with all other conditions remaining same till then with the enemy presumed to be eliminated long back seen singing it's own song with a mischievous smile..

"Luckily your life might have passed 
Calmly all these years with 
No major comparable events with your next man 
But today I caught you in no time 
When such an event surfaced!"

  • “Dahi le rahe hon? Ek choti si kaali mirch aur namak ke sath roti dahi vaastav meh ek achha naashtha banaatha hai….” 
I was astonished to hear suddenly such a comment behind me as I stood in the queue in my grocery shop with few tins of curd. As I looked back, I could see my neighbor smiling at me.

I knew this man. The one forever I never liked as he invariably in every meeting crosses his limit, without hesitation invades into your privacy and talks all that unnecessary. In fact I very much hated this habit of a few of my Indian Community around me Viz.,

Intruding into privacy of others unnecessarily!

And very much wished they change. But never it happened and with more closeness and time, this interference was on the rise only.

At that point of time, all of a sudden there was an occasion for me to go abroad for a long period.

I thought as I heard that at the new place people give so much importance to one's privacy respecting it to a max level.

Soon my travel to the new place took place, and after relaxing a few days at home overcoming the jet lag, I started moving out everywhere seeing the surroundings and constantly interacting with the people making a note of their customs and habits.

To my astonishment, I noticed people maintaining number one discipline as they communicated to their next man carefully weighing each word they spoke starting with my neighbor's little girl's words,

  • “Hi! This cup we don’t need any more. Keep it with you. Thanks a lot. Bye!”
Extending to strangers on road, at shops and malls saying..
  • “Hi! How are you?” 
  • “Did you find everything?” 
  • “You are welcome!” 
  • “Excuse me.. Thank you very much!” 
  • “It's OK.. Good bye!”


“How much care these people take in their dealings with others? Every word is weighed to precision before one speaks to his/her next man and the same is taught and insisted upon from young age!" I thought.

Soon I started going regularly to the nearby Super Stores for purchase of my daily essentials. Equally at my end too similar routine words used to come out of my lips during the interactions there.

Thus passed 3 months of my stay at the new place and the newness having faded slowly to my surprise, I started noticing a sort of artificiality in the behaviors of people around me.

A quick introspection revealed that they sure were not at fault there as that was their culture but I, as a seasoned personality of my place had slowly become a misfit in the new place with the 'inside of me' constantly craving for the deep rooted my familiar interactions and expressions at my place.

As I continued my stay beyond, it became so routine that I started repeating the required words without my knowledge and the person in front used vanish from my mind the next moment..

Soon, I became sick of the new routine life with no change and was living counting my days of stay there.

That day early morning, as usual I visited my shop to buy some fresh curd and was soon at the Billing Counter. Suddenly to my utter surprise, I heard a gentle voice asking me with all warmth,

  • “Dahi le rahe hain? Sabi log Roti dahi khaane keley jaroor pasand karte hain aur aapko bhin bahut pasand hogan.. Kya mei sach bolaa?”
Without a sec delay, I instantly responded with a big smile saying,
  • “Aap Sahi Bola!"
The new friend finished my billing, took the cash and handing over the item again responded with all pleasantness,
  • “Alvida, Dhanyavaad!”
for which I could no more hide my emotions and suddenly said aloud with a great warmth in my heart to the surprise of every one around
  • "Bahut Dhanyavaad, Alvida!"

'Kiska hai ye tumko intezaar main hoon na..'

A mobile phone goes in public..The man picks up the phone, identifies the caller and shouts in a high pitch,

  • “How many times I told you not to ring up to me like this? I can't extend any more help. Enough is enough!” 
forgetting the great meaning of those very lyrics heard just before and instantly disconnects the phone while others around look at him curiously!

One more mobile phone rings longer in an office..

'Kiska hai ye tumko intezaar main hoon na..
Dekh Lo idhar to ek bar main hoon na!'

The Official too takes the call and instantly saying in a harsh tone,

  • “You've disturbed me beyond. No use of saying ‘sorry’ now. We are not sitting here all the time to answer your questions. Keep down the phone!' 
cuts the phone forgetting the very great meaning of those extended lines heard just before while others around keep a pin drop silence.

They aren't a few cases in isolation alone. Once in a way, they happened in my life too earlier and further will happen too if I am careless and expand beyond. A strange situation where all of a sudden, I would find no control on myself!

But.. If I calm down a bit and look at the turmoil of the situation, I easily understand that my bout of instant anger indirectly depicts a constant unrest in me.. Meaning.. I am continuously aiming at something but it's not happening that way in my life..

Thus I am forever tossed between 'my wish' and 'the Reality!’

Can I do some thing about this? Yes.. No doubt if I truly firm up that whatever is the inside turmoil,

I should ever try to meet the very purpose for which I am connected to people in the world!

As I discipline myself thus, it instantly instills a certain confidence in me, brings back peace and restores control over the situation..

And that's not the total..

It adds up bit by bit every time I do this making me more stable in my life at the back of additional reminders in me that
  • An escape here is no salvation and getting glued to my own is my petty selfishness..The mid path alone is ever ideal for happy living! 
  • Amidst the so called uncontrolled and unmanageable situations too my mental clarity can exist if I'm determined to push thru' the so called worst in front! 
  • My confidence forever is a product of my knowledge and myself digesting the inevitability in front!
  • Diverted energies produce pain and exact effort put in ever frees!
  • At the honest level, the individual is truly known; dishonesty makes the man sure unknown indirectly!
  • Fear goes when the mind is cleansed and living to the Reality straight away cleanses the mind!
  • Being Humane in life is the basis for upholding the Principles of Dharma and no short cuts to this ever found to exist in this life!
  • Every observation of mine is a mixture of Truth and untruth and my calmness is directly proportional to how much Truth is in my observation!
  • Investigation and exploration are the true natural traits in an individual and love and peace are the outcome of these two!
  • Laws protect, morals elevate, Truth frees.. Sticking to law gives me a decent life, keeping up morals makes me truly humane and sticking to Truth spreads Eternal Peace around!

Once, a Group of 4 Experts approached a king and said,

"Your Majesty! We have a unique formula with us for betterment of man who is constantly suffering from one problem or the other in his/her life.. The formula is called 'WE CARE' at our end which improves basically the

  • Consumption, 
  • Assimilation, 
  • Rejuvenation and 
  • Expression 
Aspects of man at every instance and makes him/her feel 'Truly Great!'

Our 4 Experts with their Assistants will do a marvelous job in each field of above Specialties straight away contributing a one time improvement of about 70% in that direction with the Assistants helping out in the remaining 30% thru' their follow-up and support.. 

The entire change takes about 3 months to materialize in all with few exceptions here and there which any how occur in all fields of living..

Kindly permit us to go ahead and help our people!"

The king was much pleased with the presentation of the Experts and straight away gave them permission to go ahead with their ambitious plan and help out people even though the wise Minister modestly objected saying that all that would not help ultimately..

In no time, big advertisements came up in each and every corner of the kingdom asking every one to make use of the unique facilities provided by the Ruler at a nominal cost and feel better in their lives!

People in numbers soon started taking full advantage of the highly acclaimed combined Expertise for 3 months but to their utter surprise in the end instead of becoming perfect they felt sober and dull with

The Great Feeling of Originality

seen no where with them..

The Experts quickly clarified in that context..

"That's because of few after effects of our doing the max but they are all temporary only. All of you will be alright soon!"

The people who took the benefit of the combined Expertise finally returned with a mixed feeling in them coupled with a hope that soon they would become better..

And.. Yes! The Experts were 100% right there as people sure slowly and steadily became normal with their stamina and vigor returning to a 100% level along with..

The Great Feeling of Originality

back in it's place 

But equally too appeared the earlier problems which slowly and steadily shot up almost to the same old level!

IT'S 'ME'.. IT'S NOT 'ME!'

  • "Let me expand and enjoy max in my life.. I'm just the man of that interest!"
I thought.. Soon certain thing went wrong and I found something missing in me..
  • "May be, I was not careful and so it happened.. Let me take the right care here!"
I thought.. That soon turned me into a true rationalist of my life.. Sooner than that, there was a disturbance..
  • "In spite of the right care, a miss can occur.. An extra attention sure takes care of that!"
I thought.. That further refined me to be a careful rationalist of my life.. Again there was a disturbance..
  • "In spite of all this, a miss is just a probable happening.. Let me equip myself to take care of that!"
I thought.. That lead me to be a realistic rationalist of my life.. Again there was a disturbance..
  • "Whatever has to happen will happen.. Let me do my best and not bother beyond!"
That squarely put me in a new life of rationalism mixed with the thoughts of uncertainty.. Again there was a disturbance..
  • "It may be easy to say but when it happens, I'm not the same as earlier to digest all that thought of!"
I thought and was clueless for a while.. There was a gentle knock within..
  • "Are you truly expressing yourself what you are at your heart?"
That lead to me search in my heart and soon my originality was max out.. I thought that that artistic expression is the 'true me' till a day I found my expression all along tainted with pride..

I finally thought that my search ended as I corrected myself there to be..

An artist of my original expression with the pride making way for the next man in my heart thus valuing the other man's expression along with mine!

There was a Message from above..
  • "It's just the beginning in your life searching for what you really are.. No doubt, this search is endless but never goes in vain..
  • As you rise thus continuously giving more and more place in your heart for the other man simultaneously continuing your basic expression.. That infinite journey of yours.. 
Continuously finding a 'new of you' every moment is nothing but the Ultimate Search for Me established in Eternal Peace!"

“Master, it's many times heard thru’ and read in our Sacred Books that the Great Men and Women of the earth had acted in varied ways at certain specific instances of their lives even though we all the time were firmly told to act in a particular way in line with our duties..

For example..
  • The Great Warriors of Kurkshetra who were truly Worthy of Worship have stayed totally on the wrong side when they could have easily come out saying that they would never support the wrong.. 
  • Again knowingly well that their king was not the righteous man, why at all these Great Personalities were in his Court?
  • The Great Philosopher used to say, ‘Work, work, work…. There is nothing equal to that!’ but again used to say sometimes, ‘If you find time, stop all works and meditate!’ 
  • The Master used to jump on the grass while walking on it saying, ‘I don't want to harm the grass as I walk!”
  • The Great Saint when caught by the security forces of the king with the possession of jewelry dumped in his lap by an escaping thief declared, "I had stolen the jewelry!"
Why didn't these Great People speak as well as do exactly the same what they all the time asked us to do thus setting True Examples from their side?”

“Dear! The very reason why these Great Personalities, a few times did the other way is purely out of the Divine Love towards the Humanity and here they have their own reason for the very contradictory action done by them at a particular moment and simultaneously have no reason too..

That means.. At the back of such an Eternal Love, any action done is forever justified as the Right Action of the Moment and the entire Universe too gears up at that single moment to support such an action.. 

But in absence of such Love, a small deviation too from the ordained duty would become wrong and the person done so has to repay that one 100% in future!

The simplest similarity to this action is a parent's response towards his/her child and no particular gross way is defined there to be implemented except that within legal boundaries as it is very much presumed that the love behind all such actions ultimately does good to the child and each such way as decided by the parent is freely allowed to be implemented..

The Great Men and Women of the Earth who proclaimed all such contradictory looking Sayings were just there to unwind the left out effects of their earlier deeds and were truly the Evolved Souls at that point of time. Thus their Actions and Proclamations forever are Sacred and are approved all the time!

And the Great Men and Women expected every one of us first improve ourselves in the quality of our ‘self’ thru’ the very discharge of these duties and thus steadily rise in our life!”

Hope you remember me..
Me the one, 'n' number of times in the past fallen
a prey to the enchanting power of yours..

Yeah.. How can you not know me? 

When the time is ripe,
you precisely overpower me in a second, 
make me look to the other side
very efficiently getting your job done to perfection! 

I thought of being fully attentive, 
never fall a prey to your gimmicks.. 
It appeared working but in the nick of time 
I was caught in your precise trap.. 

This method, that method
I tried to keep you off,
no use, you know how to in the right time 
show your colors and embrace me tight.. 

I kept reminders after reminders in my diary 
to see I would not be tricked by you but 
your mesmerizing skills are too amazing and 
I was ever overpowered there.. 

I kept endless alarms day after day 
not to be carried over by your enchanting show
 constantly thinking 
‘I Wish An Alarm Would Ring Loud And Notify Me Whenever…‘
you try to overpower me but 
they stand no where when you firm up 
to make me turn to you..

Tell me.. 

Why are you after me like this? 
Why do you make me a slave of yours and feel eternally happy? 
Can't you leave me to my freedom? 
What ultimately is your aim in continuously playing thus with my life? 

I wish how nice my life would be if 
I can just get out of your clutches but.. 
As I look at myself carefully once again, 

I understand that you are indirectly 
in my life as without you by my side, 
What charm is there other than 
the boring routine 
never leaving me a moment? 

you are sure the enchanting one of my life as
you truly make me say to others' 
once in a way else 
The pride in me
never allows me to do that for a life time! 

Indirectly thanking you, 
For being by my side
remaining supportive for a life time!

In the car the boy sat with his grandpa and was following the GPS..

"The traffic is red.. We'll go late.. I can't study today!"

"No prob.. You relaxed a lot. As soon as we go home, you are studying!"

The child was silently observing outside and the GPS. Meanwhile the mom got a call..

An old Post edited and re-written as a story without touching the core message to suit this week's IndiSpire Prompt What do you think about yourself? Share your views. #yourself is brought out here to feel who actually I am..

The story goes thus..

The day was the auspicious day of Maha Shivratri.. People from centuries had

  • Fasted, 
  • Visited the temples of Lord Shiva, 
  • Kept themselves awake through out the night thru' Singing/listening the devotional songs.. 
The earlier day itself, the devoted mom away in her home town advised her son in the city who did not yet settle in his life thru' marriage to visit at least the nearest temple and pray to God for good to happen..

The son who always carried his own version in respect all such rituals and austerities murmured within,

"How can I do my work if I go and stand in queues for hrs to see God? All these rituals are not for a man like me. They are only for people who have time with them!"

but was in no mood to hurt his mother's feelings and so replied to her softly,

"OK, mom! I'll try to do that!"

As usual he got up that day in the early morning hrs to prepare and go to his office but strangely a little stomach upset held him up. Soon he felt quite uneasy in his body and decided to go an hr late to the office.

But the situation only worsened, there was no go and so he conveyed the same to his Boss by phone who instantly advised him to take off for the day.

The son thus remained at home with no hunger feeling and he decided not to eat anything except taking plenty of fluids.

By afternoon, he felt better but continued his fluid intake till evening without solid food.

As he started making some preparations for light dinner, his colleague who took off because of the festival called him casually on phone and knowing his condition instantly said,

"Yaar.. I'm coming to take you home.. Relax at our place to night and tomorrow you can go to office if you feel well!"

Having said thus, the friend in one hr’s time was at his door step with his car and soon both moved on.

The evening traffic was dense with extra festival rush and both the friends were held up near the famous temple of Lord Shiva on the way for almost half hr moving inch by inch in the traffic. All along, melodious devotional songs on Lord Shiva played near the temple premises were heard on few loud speakers installed on the road side.

Soon both the friends reached home, had a light dinner and spent few hrs up to midnight looking into few routine issues.

At 12 midnight they went to sleep, but strangely the new place kept the son awake for a longer time which continued almost the whole night. Added to that, few devotional songs from distant loud-speakers too kept him awake. In the early morning hrs, he fell asleep a bit but in no time the friend woke him up.

Both the friends soon readied themselves and headed to their Office. As they moved, near a certain temple premises, a strange feeling overtook the son instantly.

“What had happened to me in the last 24 hrs? Indirectly

  • Fasted the whole day with no intake of solid food,
  • Was held up near the temple of Lord Shiva on the way 
  • Did not sleep almost the whole night and all along 
  • Was listening to the various devotional songs played everywhere!
Further, I was off from my active work too in no time which hitherto I was thinking that I can never do it!”

Just then from the temple premises, the first sloka of Nirvana Shatakam (Atma Shatakam) was heard on the loud-speakers being recited melodiously with the meaning explained in parallel..

'Mano Budhyahankaara Chitani Naaham,
Na Cha Shrotrajihve Na Cha Ghraananetre
Na Cha Vyoma Bhumir Na Tejo Na Vayuh,
Chidaanandarupah Shivoham Shivoham.'

'I am not mind, nor intellect, nor ego, nor the five senses, nor the reflections of inner self

I am beyond all that. Again

I am not the ether, nor the earth, nor the fire, nor the wind as

I am indeed that Eternal Knowing and Bliss, the Auspicious (Shivam), Love and Pure Consciousness!'
