I am not creator. I am contributor. I have always expressed my gratitude in my applications, written to the appealing authorities with selfish professionalism to extract favour from their arrogance, in holding a God like position, in their senses.
Professionalism is always for the self first. I have done all this for my self growth and for satisfying my ego. My ego has been a driving force in my professional journey. It has shown me both short and long paths to tread in this journey of life. I opted the path as per situational demand.
I think my sense of gratitude was not by heart, so it never gave me happiness after any achievement. I was deceiting my self. I had many companions in my professional journey, posing as my well wishers in front of me. But they used to dig my grave behind me for their egos. That was also a way of showing gratitude.
So, I understand that gratitude is a vehicle that carries everyone’s ego forward. The result of ego may be in positive or in negative, affecting the progress of units of executions. Rest lies in the hand of destiny.
Destiny is torch bearer. It is controlled by almighty. It is said that one can change destiny but that is also in control of almighty.
So, I think my sincere gratitude is to almighty. In my journey of life, I show my heartiest gratitude to all who have brought smile and happiness for me without expecting anything. My sincere gratitude in reality is for those who gave me experiences through their behaviours and attitudes. They have prepared me for odds and made me bold for existence. I reveal my gratitude and indebtedness to nature who has taken care of everything for my life. I have no sense of gratitude for my parents because I may not be selfish for them. My all thoughts end with them. They are my beginning and they are my termination. The lap wherein I got love, peace, security, safety and learned lessons of life has no suitable word in any language of the world for measuring and expressing gratitude. I may reserve my will above all for them. I always miss them. My mother is above all and her lap is above God’s heaven. So, all my gratitude are to everyone visible or invisible in life’s journey.
May I give gratitude to me for always being me. I do am, my destiny. My gratitude is to destiny.
She gives me a name.
She is my friend,
She is my life,
She is my destiny,
She is my love,
She is my flower,

She has to be for sure,
I have to give her opportunities.
She has her own identity,
I have to give her strength.
She is a gender,
I have to make her perfect.
She is the maker,
I have to give her time.
She should be self,
She should be a book,

She should be tough,
She should be water,

She should be earth,
She should be open,
She should be closed,
She should be medium,

She should be power,
She should be inspiration.
She should be for others,
She should be creative,
She should be for nature,
But she should be for her own.
When you get something, you think big to excell. When you loose someone you think big to excell. Our lives swing like pendulum between something and someone. This philosophy of life is lone controlling factor
of all activities in the world.
The something instigates life, one by one, towards completion, but it is never completed and remains alive for something more. That’s why we are struggling with ourselves for something.
The good or bad histories of the world are the results of such somethings. The present days prevailing activities in the world – corruption, fight for supremacy, economic war, environmental issues, lobbying etc. are because of this something more. This something may also be desire, encouragement, zeal, enjoyment, greed, and cause of all sorts of social vices.
Something is responsibility. Above all something is essential element of life. Actually something is Carrier for nothing.
In pursuit of something from childhood to adulthood and old age, one day life says goodbye forever. When the someone leaves for unknown place, something is left here in this world, in hands of others, craving for something. This departure changes the course of thinking upto highest level of disillusionment. Life appears to be meaningless for something. This is the ultimate truth beyond something.
We should enjoy beginning of life from something to departure from life to unknown. The end of life is imminent. Nothing is permanent. This thought if prevails, the world may become heaven and lust for something may be need based. We may act for salvation. Peace may spread. World may be a global family, caring each other as the God wants.
Competition is bone of contention. We only think all these at funeral ground and after that the world moves on, never stops. We indulge into daily course of existence because we are learned fools. This is the real fact.
In modern time, something is getting more importance as the life is changing to show business knowingly or unknowingly beyond truth. We have reached upto the level of false status symbol expressions, that every one has been competitor of self. There is need or not but I will tell about myself because I have something to show. But it is to be judged. Sometimes smiling face has hidden griefs. The fake one appears as real due to something.
Something motivates for more and more and controls all activities the world over but someone shows the reality of world. The choice is personal – something or someone. Both are separate but sail in the same boat in the river of life.
We should respect and enjoy someone with something within pleasant limits, in true sense, to create heaven on the earth
The super brain developed in human is the main concern for alround happenings in the surroundings. It has full potential to change the scene, attitude and universe.
It is the concept that full potentials of its complicated efficiency has not been utilized. Otherwise, the history of the world would have been different. The brain starts functioning from very first day in life and controls all activities.
Perhaps, in the history of homosapiens brain has played vital roles beyond imagination. It has still more in store, to unveil the secrets of universe. If we leave apart these aspects, it is of utmost importance that brain has affected and developed behaviors in humans, the most. On that basis, we differentiate the good or bad, moral or immoral and legal or illegal etc. actions or activities of any one. These terms are respective to each other and may have different importance, in a fraction of the society, defending the need.
The same moral values for a thief, a pickpocket or starving person on one hand and a fully satisfied, rich person on the other hand have different meaning, at the same time. The difference is need based. But, it never implies that moral values harmful to the society should be justified due to some deficiency which may be removed or rectified.
The same brain, in this regard, should provide opportunities for availability of bare minimum requirements of bread, clothing and house to maintain the morals of all, as positive.
It should not be forgotten that belly and brain have relations. When belly is full, brain works satisfactorily. This may help in developing positive, congenial and acceptable attitudes in the society.
The practice of moral values in the society is must to make it freely liveable.
It may not be ruled out, despite fulfilment of all needs, certain sections of society have hidden agenda to destablise the balance in their interests. They have always been there and will always be, as harming agents. Their definition of moral values are different and may change as per need. They deserve suitable reactions, for the sake of society and nation. There are different moral values at every stage, for every walk of life from beginning to the end of life.
All moral values are the milestones in the development of social structures and are established from the time immemorial in the history of mankind. There might have been several refinements, amendments and/ or modifications in moral values, as per changing needs and demand of time in due course of developments. We have reached at this stage after due diligence of our ancestors. We may go at length on these essential established values for academic records. But their essence in establishing peace, harmony and brother hood in the society should always be continued for betterment in future.
It should be remembered that you, he and I have limitations regarding thinking and self interests. So every step in life has impact on the structure of society through moral values. As a multi storey building stands on many columns, likewise moral values are pillars in the structure of the society. Our social structures may collapse without them, as multi storey building collapses on damaging the basic columns of support. A minor mistake may have devastating effects. All moral values have emanated from brain, from time to time and all such values control brain for behaviors in the society . These are essentials to be continued.
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.

I did in the wold what you wanted. In your world – everyone was with me but no one was for me. Everyone loved me but not for me. I was for all but no one was for me. I had relatives but for namesake. I was borrower but no one was lender.
I am your child I want to remain like that to be innocent in my life, please accept me. I am yours, I want to be yours at last, please accept me. I am from you. I want to be lost but in you, please accept me. I want to be merged but in you. I want to be submerged but into you. I am a drop of your ocean. Please save me from nexus.
Let me be I, let me be me, let me be myself, but at last, let me be you and yours forever. Let me rest in peace.
And my, the last will from you is, let me remember my mother always, even with you, only. Please ignore my sin.
A few lines of mine on Gandhi ji, the Bapu, may not define him or draw any conclusion on him. He was the belief and trend setter. He was the beginning and he was the end of thoughts of his time. We have knowledge of Gods and even proof is often asked to establish the truth. I think, beyond proof, the Gandhi ji was God of worldly habits. He lead and lived every aspect of life. Whatever conclusions he drew at different stages of life he applied them timely for taking further actions. He experienced the “truth” in childhood but applied for the rest of life in leading the mass. He even exposed his personal life for the benefits of all.
His life was an open book. The more you read the more you understand the meaning of life and responsibilities.
He had shown the world as to how to live with minimum requirements without disturbing natural ecology and using local resources. His every action was lesson to the world.
He was not having any political background but his only strength was thoughts influenced by religious books like the holy Gita. His message to the world was very loud and clear; that we could win and survive with strong, well thought, disciplined and planned execution and continuous monitoring upto the last result achieved. With these firm thoughts his views of non use of weapons and non cooperation to the mighty empire, helped the country in getting liberation from slavery without shedding too much blood.
His thoughts are still being applied in different parts of the world as peaceful weapons for liberation from slavery. He had proved that weapons could not deter the determination and rule for long period.
His message of non violence should be the moto of every citizen of each country. The world may see the heaven on earth, the nature may flourish and concept of global village may be true, if Gandhi ji is well understood by heart and not by mere theoretical approach.
It should be clear that piling of weapons may not bring happiness and power in country but it reveals the weakness of that country. History is the proof, not a single mightiest kingdom is surviving on earth. Violence shows the sense of fear and insecurity. It has long term effect on humanity.
Gandhi ji had understood that and had analysed the strength of people and mobilised them in India and South Africa.
There are differences on the actions taken by Gandhi ji. Tones of papers have been used to analyse him but It is my thinking that Gandhi ji was a messenger sent by the almighty to show the world the real path of peace and non violence. Further, through him, we get lesson that minimum is sufficient for living a good and self satisfied life.
If we follow them, certainly there will be peace on earth and everyone will be happy. Present situation of wars and lobbying among nations may be avoided. There will not be starvation in the world. The prevailing natural problems may be minimum because of minimum requirements from the nature.
I think, Gandhi ji was a soul to show the world path of heaven by his deeds and thoughts. We should agree that he who walked the talk, was reality.
No one may elaborate him, but adjectives can complain to him for lack in superlative degree, for expressing the extent of his stature and noble deeds. Even, many peace recognising and prize giving institutions or organisations of the world could not bring laurels to themselves by missing him in the list of their recipients. They missed the bus of history because of biasness. Now, they need recognition and explanation, because Gandhi ji was both introduction and explanation in himself.
He was so simple that a continuous single line may depict him without any decoration. Draw a simple line and a long stick on paper or any where, that is our beloved Gandhi ji who made a horizon beyond all horizons.
Every future generation has to read and believe that a torch bearer of humanity was once here on earth, who loved everyone and lived for others and sacrificed his life owing to violence against which he had fought, while he was praying for all. A violent end of peace bearing lamp. Gandhi if you die in memory in any age in the world, that will be indication of dying civilisations and humanity. Still you are an inspiration to every movement for liberation and day to day problems.
Is there any end of writings on Gandhi ji who was loved by enemy too?
If you want to explore the world and know the culture, traditions, different languages and living styles etc. of a place, then you have to be like a nomad, always on migration. Most of the countries or sea routes known to the world are because of this quality. If you want to imagine then you would have to close your eyes as if you are a blind. Light is not necessary for imagination. Perfection comes like that. If you want to address the world, be like a dumb. Analyses of words is must to influence others like weapons- war or peace. If you want to think, isolate yourself, correlate within, and visualise outer world, you will know the power of thinking.
The outcomes of these human qualities have affected the making of civilisations and history, knowledge of many secrets of nature and universe,writing of literatures related with all walks of life and necessities- morals, medicines, economics, administration, rulings and duties, etc.
They are still in existence. Imaginations and thinking are mostly found in cartoons and stories related with children. They have effects on children. Even scientists are working on many of them to realise the benefits to humanity or security of a nation.
At this age of life, I find that the most important classical imagination of childhood game, I played with my friends, is the ” hide and seek”. Everyone might have certainly played this game. The lesson from this game we get is that all players become happy on their success. What a great idea on a game, no one is looser and all enjoy and remain happy.
Like wise, migration has discovered two countries- India and America. These are the two democratic countries influencing the world’s other countries in many ways.
We may have true friends and well wishers if we analyse and use words as miser. More the words and there will be more complications in relationships.
If we miss these four essential pillars in day to day life, then should try to imagine to migrate to develop new thinking for addressing the concern with effective words.
Every thing may change and may be modified. We may change and write fates to ensure the accuracy and flexibility according to convenience. But four pillars are necessity to humanity, civilisation, nature and world for existence.
Our ancestors have shown the way to know the world for sustainability and continuity

Every creature in the world has importance and assigned job to perform in life. But in case of human being it may not be true. The natural importance in completing the life cycle is only assigned. Other activities are controlled according to the age of individual from childhood to old age through young stage. Humans have many privileges bestowed by nature as special case for appreciation of her treasure.
Among all creatures, something makes humans special in nature and that is developed brain. Humans have utilised brain for developing a very important system of learning called education. Education is only essential need which unfurls the universe’s secrets and paves the path for meaningful complete life with due care of the nature. Education has unlimited scope but need a systematic approach which may be termed as strategies. Hence, we may consider that formulating strategies need education to be useful and purposeful.
The strategy may not be same in every case. Though education is very important, yet values and importance of experience of uneducated or lesser educated people may not be neglected. We have traditional thoughts that without proper training or education, success is doubtful. We, should also analyse that in many cases even after vigorous training, expected results are not achieved in various fields such as administration, economics and growth etc.
We may meet in life certain persons who are not educated or having minimal education but their experience mattered more and they are very successful in life. They are sometimes very useful in formulating the strategies and achieving the goals. We may get examples in field of agriculture, labour intensive work, caring and tourism etc. where local or migratory people are very friendly and helpful in making strategies and their executions. Even in field of defense they are very useful. So raw education may be taken as tool of strategies and not as guarantee for success.
We should consider that experience comes with age and is a tool for refined approach in making strategies and taking decisions. We should appreciate that many innovation are made based on the situation and requirements, by experience of both educated and uneducated persons. Still it is continuing. The same is true in case of making strategies. Recognition and appreciation of such people are necessary for existence and continuity of thoughts and developments. When the nature has capacity to change, we may also adapt to sustain. Change is first requirement for creation and continuity otherwise, extinction will be fate of humankind. So developmental strategies should be based on the history of nature and imagination of origin of life and survival.
Nature has shown the importance of strategies of step by step growth upto a level suitable for incarnation of humankind.
Experience may save them.
The beginning of life, from invisible, needs addition from minimum two in counting following nature’s law and universal truth. This addition makes complete sequence of future of generations to come. It is true atleast for the mankind.
As the knowledge increases with age and experience, at suitable stage of life, we are taught the first lesson of life’s journey – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These are the four governing musketeers dominating all kinds of knowledge. We apply them frequently to achieve success in the eyes of judging society. While addition and multiplication are having increasing tendencies, the subtraction and division are having opposite tendencies of decreasing or diminishing. These pairs of calculations control the entire nature’s operations and functions as balancing factors.
Since, the life starts with addition it plays the most important part in making the world suitable on every aspect of the nature. It is the symbol of continuous growth in definite pattern. Whereas the multiplication denotes growth by additions in leaps and bounds. It may be uncontrolled many times inviting disturbances.
Subtraction and division are two factors counter acting the influences of addition and multiplication. These are main factors in balancing all types of ecology. These factors may also be heinous sometimes leading to extinction of species and also paving the path for addition and multiplication of more advanced species in the nature.
Such is the case in life’s ecology also. Addition and multiplication make the society and are symbols of cooperation. These are symbols for growth, rich history, favorable atmosphere and happiness. The subtraction and division, in controlling bonding factors, lead to devastation or further growth of society. If they change the attitudes and inculcate the thoughts of selfishness, and instigate the behavior of bosses unruly, the ultimate outcome may not be easily imagined but it will definitely be heinous for society.
It may be astonishing to note that we have knowledge but for self, though knowing the long term effects. Social mutations may be in control if we take a risk of being able to make conqueror by utilising the same four muscatears. Rest is in the hand of the limitation of nature’s laws. We should follow the laws for the cause of humanity and almighty. We are directly or indirectly controlled by them. We are not independent for our existence. Sustainability is the prime concern for humans, because it is interdependent on various necessary factors.
