Return

I think that a suitable word denoting completion of a cycle is ” Return “. In a wheel, a point returns to its previous location in completion of one circle but it goes ahead and reaches to the location by repeating the cycle. This is applicable to all. No one can move without completing a cycle.

Nature is an open book, where a number of cycles are running continuously maintaining close coordination with each other. There are cycles in air, in the sea and within the earth. If any disturbance is detected its effects may be hazardous. The important seasonal cycle- summer – rain and winter, is well known on the earth. There may be a deviation in other parts of the earth. This cycle mainly depends on the temperature, cloud and wind. The wind cycle depends on the temperature, to carry clouds which depends on low-pressure zones to discharge water as rain. This season’s cycle along with another water’s cycle is the life of nature. Nature maintains her existence with the temperature and the water.

Every creature depends mainly on these cycles. Besides, there are the food cycle, growth cycle and many more essential cycles in nature. But the water cycle is important for sustainability. Nature frugally uses this valuable gift. Nature behaves like a miser. She uses water for creatures, stores water on the  earth for use and sends back surplus water to the ocean for maintaining the continuity of the cycle. Nature, for this, has a unique transportation system of rivers, leading to the ocean.

Nature is very kind. Nature is very cruel also. At last, nature takes all things back from her dwellers, whatever she releases from her warehouses. All creatures from  invisible to visible take essential items from the earth and surroundings for origin, growth and performing worldly duties. Nature very kindly support a life and supply essentials for sustainability. But she has defined return policies for her treasury. When a living thing becomes nonliving, her systems and agents get activated automatically at the proper time to take back all essentials used. The body decays and becomes useful for others. These cycles run continuously in nature.

Humans are also part of nature’s cycles. But they have a brain. They think, because of this, they have interfering qualities through thoughts, behaviours, emotions and greedy attitudes. They do not have their cycles to challenge nature but they have a sequence of karma (actions ) followed by fruits (results). In this sequence, karma controls the type of fruit and fruit may control the further course of actions followed by results to carry on the sequence which controls the life in the human kingdom. Karma is mainly controlled by attitudes, behaviours, surroundings and emotions. But the greed of humans plays a vital role in deciding the path of karma. Though humans, based on experience in the past, may anticipate the relationship between karma and results, yet they are disturbing nature. Humans are fully dependent on nature from day one to the last day of their lives. But in the name of sustainability, they are taking more from nature than they can return. Most of the resources are non-renewable and non- replenishing.

Nature has suffered from humans to the extent that her seasonal cycle and the water cycle have been disturbed the most. The results of karma are backfiring on humans and their existence is in danger. Nature is taking its course to sustain and is giving a warning to humans to be careful to change their thinking before it is too late.

We have potential beyond imagination. We have to rise to the occasion to limit our needs to a minimum. Otherwise, the fruits of actions will be annihilating. We may not save ourselves with all technological advancements. The return may be to the stone age but on the wheel of destruction what we are witnessing in the form of different types of wars between countries in the world. We are forgetting that our cycle is completed from the almighty to the almighty via natural duties with the assistance of nature made by the almighty. We are so intelligent that in this cycle of life we always fight for the existence of the almighty and we fight for my God and your God but we forget to define a human and humanity. We should celebrate a human day also for our sake. We should also think about fixing a day in the name of God, in a year, to remember that we are sons and daughters of only one God.

My shadow

Because of me and myself, I have a shadow. My shadow is best companion of me in day or in light. It is black and unseen in dark. I have virtual shadow in night. My shadow increases and decreases in size owing to source and distance of light. I may have many shadows as per number of sources of light. I am in grief that I may not have shadow in dark and in the sky. I may not give colours to it.

My shadow helps me alone in deciding many things. I get knowledge of directions and probable distance of source of light except the distance of Sun. My shadow always has its identity, except one time it has lost its identity informing me because shadow- shadow interaction began for third shadow. Now my shadow is not in my control.


My shadow has no life but has the philosophy of life. Outer shadow needs outer source of light but inner shadow needs own enlightenment because problems of world are due to internal shadow. Our attitudes, thoughts, actions and interactions are controlled by this shadow. My physical shadow shows directions and distance but inner shadow makes blind and covers self consciousness. Inner shadow is limited to self body, but affects the surroundings. I have to search peace. I have to spare me from immoral things. I have to be immortal from mortality. I have to be selfless. I have to be of use for others. I have to leave arrogance. I have to search and follow truth. I have to overcome my inner shadow for all these changes. Every thing is within.

My outer shadow will not be with me forever but inner shadow may make my life heavenly on earth. I have to meet a path shower guru ( teacher ). I have to do noble deeds. I have to be me first, for others.

I read books. I got confused. Every book had its limitation. No book was complete in itself. Some books were for allurements. Some books were self praising.

Ultimately, I have a thought and concluded as under – that worldly duties should be performed in pious manner without harming anyone. I can change the world but I have to change first. Smiling face, soft words, and ready to help attitudes give peace and make life easy. Only deed should speak. Name should be used for identity and not for boasting. No one will carry any thing at the time of departure from this world. So attitude of hoarding should be beyond mind. Opportunities should be shared and needy should get first preference. Everyone should respect each other and should behave as servant, not the master.

All these are possible but inner shadow should be in control through fact finding and removing all greedy attitudes. One should have faith in self. Nothing is mine forever. Everyone is important. Everyone is a tourist in the world and is on tourist visa for  certain  duration. If I help someone, it means I have helped myself. Such attitudes  may be sufficient for control of inner shadow’s hunger. I am ready to bear the fruits of my deeds. I have hope. I have to Judge myself, other may not truly judge me. May God bless me and my soul rest in peace on earth and in heaven.

I know that God is great but I have to give him the chance.

THAT DAY – A STORY FOR CHANGE

That day, I was witnessing the other face of her mild appearance. Till that time, she was in dilemma, to continue in that city or not. I knew her, as she was one of my classmates. She was not the front or back bencher. Her favourite place was in the middle but I preferred back bench for my comfort in  the classroom. I had attitude from very beginning, which still continued,  to wait and watch, before making companion, then friend if frequency matched. Because of that, I had only a few friends.

She became my friend one day,  after many  long discussions on life and its meaning. She was serious and I was always in light, joyous mood to have concentration. I had my style. One day, I dared to ask about her liking for the middle bench in the classroom. That day,  I had seen, for the first time, a light mood in her, when she smiled and said to have balance between ups and downs. I had guessed that that had been a serious smile. Life needed balance to exist in this biased world for females, leaving homes for a cause – she said. That day she told about the reason of her special psychology.

She had revolted in her conservative family of a village,  for higher study in university and was meeting her needs by self employment. I had got not sympathy but honours for her, since that day.
Naturally, I became more supportive to her. I could not be her shadow but a good friend was in me for her.

That day,  I had seen that she had cried, as her father had given ultimatum to be back to village for marriage. Marriage was the sole responsibility of her father who was impatient to complete it for the sake of  village and community. She had refused but her mother, who was supportive to her, came to settle the issue. I had met her mother, as mediator for her dreams. I got that tradition was the hindrance. She did not want to be in house, helpless like mother and grandmother fully dependent on males whether husband, brothers or sons. She knew that education could only break the ice. Her mother was worried about getting a match in community after her higher qualification.

That day, she had broken on her fate in the hands of males. She wanted to change her destiny. I knew that she was really nervous. I was also helpless. She looked towards me. I could not face her, as I was also student. Her eyes asked support. That language was silent.

That day, I immediately met to an NGO supporting females for education. She was recognised for her will and new light of hope in her life and for many other females. She grabbed the opportunity. Her mother blessed and left with encouraging words to not forget rituals and be the example, for others.

She was finally left alone to sail in the world. She started a job in the same NGO after completion of education. I was also earning in the same city and  frequently meeting her as friend.

One day, during discussion it was concluded that present engagement was not the end of the tunnel. It was decided to hold commanding position through administrative services. Due to her firm attitudes,  commitment and continuous preparation, she was finally on an important chair to deliver for betterment of others.

She was glorified for her achievements. The leader of her community felicitated her. Her father and relatives were abstaining from her because of their egos. But that barrier was broken when she reached her village to lay foundation stone for girls school. Her motivational speech, encouraged girls and villagers took pledge to send their girls out of village for higher education. It was a sea change in the village’s history. She was given credit for her foresightedness that education was important weapon to change destiny. Her father was also getting respect from officials and villagers. She was accepted by her father who was repenting on his traditional attitudes, under pressure of community.

I was happy to note my role in the whole changes in a life and for a good cause. But that was not the end for me. One day, in  an auto taxi she reached to my office without security and  entered into my chamber hurriedly. To my utter surprise, she called my home’s nick name, lovingly given by my mother. She took a seat before me and without any hitch,  told that she did not want discussions on life any more, that day, because she had discussed a lot with me. She wanted to give her life and took someone’s life. She wanted to give meaning and momentum to her life for future and continuity of her legacy. I told that I could not help in that extremely private matter. She laughed and said that was our matter and no one else was involved. She had decided to give ritualistic name to our friendship for social acceptance. I discussed a lot but she had taken permission from my parents. She was knowing that I had denied marrying many times. That day, she was woman of substance, eager to excell in all aspects of life. That day, her smile attacked on my nerves. I was the sailor for her – yours faithfully.

Ultimately, she took my hand and my life for her to be one. The good deeds continued. Story of life began and got meaning by the grace of almighty for others, from that day.

We were reciprocal to each other

New year’s resolution

We always think of pleasures. We always think about enjoyments. We may think for  collective approach or individually for the same. We adopt several means for extracting enjoyments and pleasures. These mood changing means affect nerve and ultimately affect the brain.

Enjoyment is a part of life’s activities. We want it to occupy the maximum part of life. We have devised many materials and resources for the same. All of them affect activities and life.

We may consider enjoyments as natural right. We have many occasions of enjoyments which may be situational and conditional. We get enjoyments from birth of a child to marriage to many activities in life in natural ways. Except these we take enjoyments artificially from consuming man made materials. These have enjoyments from short durations to long term.

We may notice in day to day life that consumptions of enjoyments emitting materials are increasing and have been fashion. Now a days, the more someone enjoys with such items is considered the more advanced and modern . We may get frequent news of such persons increasing in number.

These materials  give enjoyment for sometime and they are harmful to health and destroy money leading to bankruptcy. We may get many families starving because of such habits. These pleasure giving, heaven showing materials are initially welcomed but later become habit as addiction and consume everything of the individual. Such habits may produce criminals in long run.

We become so much habitual to them that we ignore the warnings written or known about the health hazard on their consumptions.

We should know that enjoyment is related to  mental status of individual and may not be permanently achieved from artificial resources. Our God has made us with treasure of enjoyments giving thoughts. They range from purpose specific physical to personal relations with nature, music and society etc. These may not be harmful to anyone if it is not blindly practised.

These God gifted sources of enjoyments are mainly creative and ultimately give peace to the mind, improve health and habits. They do not affect actively or passively to self or others. One may get enjoyment alone in a room or collectively in crowd.

We may get enjoyments beyond our made world, with nature’s beauty and spirituality. We may get permanent enjoyment without wandering here and there. These sources of  enjoyments make the life simple,  stable and lead to spirituality which imparts permanent pleasure beyond worldly affairs. All questions are answered in life. Even smile becomes pious and silence gets transmitted in spiritual enjoyments.  We get enjoyments in giving only.

We should use our wisdom to get enjoyments from useful sources leading to peace of mind, society and nation. We should migrate towards simplicity avoiding troublesome path affecting health and family.

The new year is starting,  with the smile of the  Sun, defeating the darkness and lighting the earth, giving meaning to every creature for continuity and sustainability. Everything happens peacefully.

Our resolution for new year should be like the Sun – remove darkness and bring happiness socially and spiritually to spread love and peace. One should help self and others in needs, avoiding artificial sources of enjoyments.

WISHING        EVERYONE    A         HAPPY  AND  PEACEFUL  ,  ENJOYMENT GIVING     NEW  YEAR




Dreams

Dreams and works have no gender. Everyone is entitled for the both. Most of the time selection of works need dreams. Dreams are encouraging growth engine for individual, societies and nations.

A dream ascertains goal and instigates the brain for determination to tread the path for concerted efforts for fulfillment of dream. Dream of every individual may or may not be same. The prevailing situations control the fulfillment of dreams or compell for changing the dreams. Time is the strongest factor and controller of reality for dreams come true. The government’s schemes and priorities in the interests of nation create opportunities and may change dream of individual.

If we go through the priorities of nation we may analyse that the demand changed from civil engineers to agriculture officials to electronics to computer science and from IT to currently, artificial intelligence and robotics. All these changes were controlled by overall need of a country for generating employments and improving economic conditions, increasing safety and security etc. of people. The  developments of neighbouring countries and relationship  also control the priorities of a nation. All of  these, change dreams of many from time to time.

It is said a man of principle never changes and always strides for dream. This is must and appreciable. But this is also expected that a man should be adjustable to the situations as the bending trees never break in storm and stand erect after passing of storm. Everyone should be like such trees and should wait for the congenial atmosphere for dream’s fulfillment.

If you are hungry you need food first. If your family is in trouble you have to save. You can’t ignore your responsibilities because of your dream.  But you may try to fulfill your dream, the moment you think of being self reliant and get yourself in comfortable situation. There are many examples where age is no bar for fulfillment of dreams. The zeal should  be alive.

Whether we agree or not financial conditions play vital role in life.
Whoever has excelled in any profession has worked hard to the maximum relentlessly. We may learn from the success stories of such achievers that  there is neither short cut for fulfillment of dreams nor wrong means help achieving the dreams. If any student tops the class or institution by adopting unacceptable means then he may be happy but his dreams will seldom be fulfilled. Any one may get degree in engineering or medical from institutions accepting donations but professionally may not be useful.  Most of them may be like a carpenter who quarrells with his tools because of incomplete knowledge. Any unacceptable, illegal method should not be encouraged. We should justify our dreams through our work.

In this complicated and uncertain world we may not realise our dreams alone and need well wishers  and cooperation of all needed for those dreams. It is known that  one swallow does not make summer. Every foundation stone in the construction of a mansion is most important and valuable. We should always have second options to avoid disappointment, if first dream fails to be materialised.

We should not be  sheep and fall into the well. We should analyse our weakness and strength and pros and cons of a dream. We should choose dreams beneficial to the humanity. One fault may be annihilating.

Dream is a driving force. It should be positive to benefit the humanity and the nature. It should be imitative.

Fruits of actions

The known results oriented actions attract the most. It is inherent in our nature. We do not  hesitate to react to routine calls as results are known. It is by nature that we think on actions and their results. It is beyond imagination that any action does not bear fruits. We apply our brains where we have to deal with unknown world or relations. A student knows that the result will be as per study but the future is not known. But we know about most of the actions and their results happening in nature. It is known that a seed germinates and becomes tree and bears flowers and fruits on time. The periods of various seasons in different parts of world, barring some exceptional situations, are defined. We know that all actions in nature are not fruitful to civilisations and some of them are harmful. Accordingly we remain ready for results with cautions, except in a few exceptions.

Human Life is not like that. Our lives start from unknown and end into unknown. We know that only a few actions are common in humans but the brain plays major role in many actions and results may or may not be anticipated. This complications of brain  have affected the most and  play main role in imagination and interpretation.
Perhaps brain enjoys and dives into unknown to drive the humans ahead for a cause. Sometimes, there may not be coordination between brain and  actions, between saying  and doing etc. If these are because of diseases they may be curable, otherwise,  they create problems to the whole world.  The selfish attitudes develop and results create more harm than good.   We are witnessing political turmoil and war in different parts of world because of such type of brains. Even nature is sufferer because of the brains.

Human brain is the director of actions. Actions ultimately control results. Results may be useful or useless. Results may be  beneficial or harmful. It is obvious, if we sow thorn we should not expect flower.
We have been accustomed to many activities and their results in so many years, but the technical advancements are influencing the brains and results. We, for examples, are in discussions and researching on the effects of waves emanating from mobiles and mobile towers on brains of humans of different  ages. Apart from this, artificial intelligence and remotely controlled instruments and apparatuses are affecting the brains and healths. Useful researches are being used for harmful purposes. We may assume that both human civilisation and nature are at stake because of criminal brains and technical advancements.

The age old concepts of fruits of actions are same and will never change, but other developments with time throw effects on thinking, means of actions and results. Ultimately we are not controller of all types of actions. In holy book ” Gita” it is said that overall controller of fruits of actions is almighty and we are to obey him. We may only act but by order of almighty.

The day we become successful in regulating the life and death, we may expect to control fruits of actions.

Stability

The Stability word is complete in itself. Stability in any aspect, either related with life or situation or nation or nature is imperative for evolution and developments. It is an indicator of suitability and is a must for sustainability.
We expect many kinds of stability, related with worldly as well as spiritual aspects. If we take it for granted, worldly stability inculcates  sprituality for existence of heaven on earth. As far as the worldly stability is concerned, We should look towards the giver, the nature. We know that nature is an open book. If we go through the history of origin of life on earth, it becomes evident that the first life appeared after the suitable stability in nature. Whenever, the stability is disturbed, nature’s wrath is witnessed in the form of volcanoes, earthquakes, cyclones and floods etc. to re-establish stability.
When we look towards worldly stability, our historical evidences on ancient civilisations reveal the attempts made by our ancestors towards stability, from individual to family formation to concept of societies and communities. Many civilisations were at their pinnacle of growth and stability had modern days concept of town planning and facilities of that time.

We are carrying the concepts of family and relations established from our ancestors. This has taught us as to how to take care of each other and share with each other. This type of stability should be considered first suitable step towards meeting the challenges in society, community and so on. When every thing becomes favorable, automatically peace and happiness, prevail and home becomes like heaven on earth.
The close knit family is boon as first step towards salvation.  This stability comes due to stable and permanent fiscal sources in this materialistic world. But after industrialisation and other developments of easy life making tools and instruments, the stability in a family has been disturbed to an extent that the family concept is at stake. We are getting more disturbed with developments and becoming more self oriented. We want every thing with our limited resources, mainly fiscal one. We have forgotten our efficiencies. Pandemic of this twenty first century has added fuel to the fire. The fiscal resources which are already limited, have been on the verge of exhausting. This turmoil has distracted from all the controlling concepts of balance and peace in life, in turn, affecting the journey towards sprituality. No country has been left unaffected from this pandemic.

This pandemis should be treated as open warning from stability, against rat race for unequal developments, ignoring nature’s stability. Interdependence among nations for sustainability is demand of the time. It is the time to forget individual’s supremacy. It is better to opt for minimum requirements for livelihoods to avoid distress and depression. The sprituality and world should be saved from becoming hell for stability . Otherwise nature will bear all consequences, at last and sprituality will be less meaningful.

Prayer

Somewhat I have some wealth to buy,
Somewhat l have some place to rest,
Somewhat I have someone to share,
Somewhat I have something to say,
Somewhat I have something to show,
Somewhat I have everything to enjoy.

               BUT……

Somehow I have lost my morality,
Somehow I have lost my soul,
Somehow I have lost myself,
Somehow I have lost my life,
Somehow I have lost your touch,
Somehow I have lost your love,
Somehow I have lost your teaching,
Somehow I have lost your favour,
Somehow I have nothing to share.

                   NOW……

I am guilty,
I am sinking,
I am loosing,
I am wandering,
I am selfish,
I am sin,
I am  tired,
I am lost.

My almighty forgive me as I am your son and part of your soul. You have sent me and have taken care of me. I search you in all places of worship. I search you under the sky and within four walls with a roof. I am confused. Your name is changed everywhere. Everyone wants to prove his God is superior to other’s God. Their styles of worshipping, methods of teachings and spreading of your existence are different. Their principles are different. They are competing with each other in their own laid down rules.
I am really confused to know as to who are you? You, please, come and see your world, you made a copy of your heaven and we have changed both your world and you, as per our needs. Here, in this world you have shape. You don’t have shape.

I am totally confused. Please call me back. My place is not here where I loose your prayer, where I loose your love and touch. This world is very poor. I am very helpless, need you. I request, ” no second life ” please.

The magic word “Should “

The grammatical use of the word” should” is not the concern  here. I have a different thought for this magical word. Everyone should walk the talk. Such are the sentences indicating the instruction  to be followed or obeyed. The word “should” simply  implies that something expected is or was missing. It expresses desire. It indicates that the special happening might have changed the person, his or her family, and society  etc. The positive or negative results affect directly as well as  indirectly having long term or short duration influence. The decision to follow  ” should ”  should be with intense care, because any one may use it with malaise intention.

Every one may give  ideas or suggestions. It may be used for self safety both as weapon and as blaming instrument also. This word ” should ” gives rise to series of questions which demarcate imperfections.

The impeachment is better than implementation. After all this is true for ever and it should not be forgotten. Enjoy, it should be healthy. Really this word is having a good time in all time. But be wise and it should be. Depending on mood – it is harsh or it is polite. It is political too.

This word is having great meaning in our life, searching peace, humanity, and sustainability etc., in this world. We should always take care of this word to move towards making the world as heaven. It is a word having a continuity towards completion. The present condition is because of this word. If you think of this word in the context of any profession, you will notice the magic of this word in achieving the mission and objectives. We should be obliged to this magical word ” should “. It is applicable every where. It is like spice. It is a tasty and inspirational word. I think that everyone has mastery in the use of this appealing word.

NEVER THINK WHAT AFTER ME

It is misconception in older generation, as to what will be after me? What will be the future? How this new generation will handle the situation?
Such questions are commonly heard in offices and other places where experience and expertise come in due course of work’s execution and problems’ handling. The bosses express their views, opinion and vision like this and forget about their beginning.

There are no questions on age and experience but the discussion leading to discouragement in new comers at a working place may never be welcomed. Any working place should be treated as next home and behaviour of the boss should be like guardian as being father figure. The boss should know that post does  provide forceful respect but real respect is earned from behaviour and attitude. Otherwise, relationships will be formal.

We should not forget that most of the workers are gathered from different places having different backgrounds. The boss should treat them as a family to extract the best from them. If boss has discipline wise, region wise, religion wise and caste wise, biased approach in dealing subordinates, the desired results may not be achieved. The working atmosphere will be venomous. All these expose the fear of boss of losing status and importance.

There is always difference in thinking and working styles in between two generations.
There may not be any excuse. The onus lies on the older generation to accommodate. Younger generation need attention and proper guidance.

If the boss does not treat the subordinates well, like sons and daughters, he or she doesn’t deserve to get respect after retirement from service. This type of grievance of non respect from subordinates is common by retired boss. It also depends upon the traditions formulated by preceeding bosses for each other. We should remember that you reap the same what you sow.

So questions of doubts on future should not be raised in sarcastic manner to humiliate new comers. New generation is always ambitious, agile and more mature. They have proved their efficiencies in studies and have capacity to excell, if get proper treatments. They have already faced tough competitions to hit the target.

There is always an exchange offer, give respect and take respect. New generation has changing attitudes- both services and bosses. They may not wait till retirement because this life will not be met second time. Because of stupid and arrogant bosses, most of the time, subordinates  may leave services or take premature retirements and offices loose assets.

The situation worsens when the boss projects to be like God. This attitude is very heinous for the country and needs complete surgery to make a man in reality, a man by behaviour. Such bosses give rise to revolutionary movements against odds and they need more attentions.

The selection procedures of top bosses should be on  strict norms in the interest of office and not because of seniority or some sorts of relations in higher-ups. This type of selected bosses raise questions to quench their complexes. The working atmosphere may be at stake. Boss may  not be always right.  Boss does not know everything because of chair.
