Thieves

Legal definition of thief may be meaningful. Thieves may be categorized in places. Social norms for the categorization of thieves, in practice, may be different everywhere. Some may justify the situation-based actions of thieves. Some may identify thieves on preoccupied speculations and practices. But the legal definition of thief finally prevails.

When I see around us and think about theft,
my views summarise as – I am one of the thieves. It is true everywhere. The action of stealing may be classified as direct or indirect. The direct ones identify the person and penalise. Sometimes direct action may be because of helplessness or need-based. Occasionally inactive operational systems may be involved in such cases as instigation. Even then it is punishable. We may write or deliver at length on this type of theft. Words may be stronger, mightier, influential and encouraging but there should be remedies also. No one is born a thief.

When I say I am also a thief I agree to indirect actions. I have not utilised time and opportunities completely or wholeheartedly. If I analyse from childhood I find that I do not have rosy pictures in my memory. I have seen hoarding attitudes in humans, disproportionate to their honest, just, professional and official incomes. Most of them, though socially recognised for their lavish lifestyles, has never been noticed by the inspecting authorities or monitoring agencies. We may assume that everyone is sailing in the same boat. All such thieves are cousins. Who will bell the cat? Everyone knows the secrets of each other and loves power and not responsibilities.

Such indirect actions of theft are like varieties of worms harming wherever possible. They want to get more than their positions’ entitlements and pursue wrong practices because of greed. They are not honest to the chairs which they adore and spread corruption. These are affecting the growth of the nation, tax evasion and escalating the cost of various projects due to delays in their implementation and timely completion. The public money collected by direct and indirect taxation gets wasted. Ultimately everyone suffers. Due to corruption, the qualities of completed projects and products are not up to the prescribed standards. Most of the roads, dams, buildings and bridges etc. are damaged or collapsed untimely. All types of enquiries carried for fixing the reasons are as an eye wash to divert the rage of public and to protect all responsible fellows. In my view, responsibility is not fixed to the system only but all general public are also responsible. Where ever possible, they also enjoy contributing through their share by not matching with assigned duties. Most of them remain busy commenting on others’ work ignoring their duties.

The country remains busy most of the time in making arrangements for basic needs because of these corruptions. These activities stay upliftment of public and instigate direct stealing in general. Political parties after ascending to the thrones dictate their terms and conditions for development. Most of the time the initiated projects of development and other schemes by rival political parties, occupying the thrones earlier, appear to be futile and detrimental to the society and nation. Such projects are derailed for want of funds or modified to suit the policies of the current government. The ultimate sufferer is the public and public money. It is an unending problem.

We have provisions for legal punishment to direct thieves but we have reservations for other types of active personalities because they are the lawmakers and they have also the right to make decisions. They may twist words of law as magicians.

Ultimately, our requirements are cheated and we are deceived. We move two steps ahead and recede one step behind. Thus we are progressing in leaps and bounds. We should express thankfulness to them who are honestly doing their jobs within their limited resources. They are heroes of our time.

We are the intelligent fools that we know many things but we know nothing. We should know that not a single empire having rich history is surviving because of its reasons. It means nothing is permanent. We know neither a king nor a rich person has carried a penny with him on death even then we are mad for money. We know that we may not give assurance to generations to come for wealth or a good living even then we respect money as everything, forgetting relationships, duties and responsibilities. Money can buy many things but not honesty, God and peace. We should not be direct or indirect thieves. We should do good for the development and upliftment of society and nations. Everyone will be happy and comfortable.

All future generations will be grateful to their ancestors for their foresightedness and rituals for the meaning of life. We should encourage noble and imitative practices for the amelioration of social justice. We should be satisfied with minimum requirements to share fare deals with other creatures of nature.  

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.

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.

Love – My will

And my, the last will  from you is, let me  remember my mother always, even with you, only. Please ignore my sin.

The question and spirituality

If we spiritually think, it becomes evident that life is a question in itself from entry to the exit from this world. The pertinent question of invisible soul may never end. But we can not yield to it and stop asking question. Question has place value, importance and may have quality.
  Every question asked has two main aspects. First the questioner wants to explore and enhance knowledge or wants to examine the answerer. Exploration may make the secrets unveiled to the world and may prove to be venom or nectar for the world and nature, depending upon the traditions and changing thoughts of humankind. Since the world’s  configuration has diversity in social development, biasness, regional cooperation, economic growth and opportunities to excell, the outcomes of exploration  may be useful or useless accordingly. The views of supremacy,  dictatorship, conquer and slavery may get venomous approach towards the same favorable outcomes. Ultimate gainer or sufferer is the world and nature. So before the outcomes are to be on floor, the question on their effectiveness  should be  deeply taken care of. We know the threat and usefulness of the same technology in atom bomb making and nuclear power generation. The atom bomb is being used as threat on the existence of civilisations while nuclear energy is used for the betterment of humankind.
Question asked to examine the knowledge has many aspects of showing the right path, srength, assessing the weak points and generating crave to be one of the best in the field or it may be for mockery of the answerer. This may instigate to know more or generate hatred towards the  questioner.
Thus answers of questions may be useful or useless according to their acceptance by the beneficiaries in the world related affairs. But the same may not be true in case of spiritual world for questions on almighty. Every answer may add to the knowledge on search of the almighty. The most common question on almighty may be about existence. I myself think there is someone to look after and to control not only humans but also every creature on earth. The creator certainly might have abode to welcome all of us.
The only common thing in all creature is the soul which comes in the world on the path of love and departs on own for the love of the almighty who has assigned every one duty to perform in the world.
Every role is well defined for every soul in the nature for assistance in performing the
acts of almighty. So the questions on the almighty may have no different answers,    ” except the style in placing the words in different order “.
It is the sole purpose of the soul to make the question alive in different forms by unveiling the secrets of universe. This question related with almighty is a  bonding factor among all animals, plants and humankind. No one may exist alone but in fact assist each other for existence. This is the secret coding by the almighty. All questions to the almighty lead towards purification of soul from time to time, to do good before saying goodbye to the  world.
Love is the ultimate requirement of almighty. Questions come from love, for the love to all and for the almighty. There may not be  your God or my God. The benevolent God has no discrimination between his own creations. We are the sole reasons for such heinous crime of favoritism, for our sake to prove superiority over others and try to impose our vicious thinking by hook or by crook on weak and helpless people. Even violence, muscle power and fiscal allurements are used for this purpose to increase the followers to please the God. We ignore the godliness.
  There  are many questions but it is the only answer – the God is love and love is God. Any more question may be futile. Live whole-heartedly, God will meet us. Live for all, God will call us. God is so kind.

Four Pillars

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

Old is Gold

The old one is always gold- most valuable having manifestation of the nature. We should hold his goldenness because  he or she is leaseholder, householer, placeholder, stakeholder of our lives. He or She is at the threshold to influence us manifold. His or Her bold face unfolds golden folders of pretold doldrums scolding the time. His or Her foothold has withhold us together. His or Her smile is like marigold.

We sould always be thankful to them as we treat them as our path to begin this journey of life. They should not be neglected rather their experience and guidance may be of great use for the betterment of  society. Wherever olds are neglected down fall of the culture and fortune starts early. When they start  keeping silent in the home the fate of that family starts deteriorating day by day and doomsday starts early.

We should never forget that history repeats and we have to sail in the same boat and we may reap the fruits of whatever have been sown. There may be worse scenarios. The life is the best teacher and behavior is the path to tread in future to face the music. This is always true. The old one is a living library. They are hidden treasures. Our furure’s golden days lie in their pandora’s box.

Strategy and experience

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.

Four Musketeers and Life

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.

Habits

   I have both good and bad habits. I always had attitudes for my thinking and good habits when I was in my village.
When I went to my district headquarter for higher education after passing the class 10th exam, I faced with the facts that all my earlier good habits were ridiculous for  city dwellers. There I learnt the new good habits of going to cinema and tried smoking also for belonging to developed category. I became cunning and wicked. Even I changed my thinking and speaking  style. But when I went to  bigger city for further study in university all my habits of yesterdays proved to be sign of backwardness. I adopted new habits of bunking classes for nothing, roaming here and there in search of smartness, demanding more money from home despite knowing the financial condition of father. I became more selfish to show  smartness. Now, I recalled as to how my elder brothers and their friends used to discuss on cinema, heroes and heroines showing their  knowledge and smartness. I also recalled the villagers who had left the village for ever. Whenever they came for short visit they proclaimed that villages are not worth living and people are very backward as compared to people of cities.

My journey for education witnessed the various stages of developed  attitudes and habits from village to small city to big and bigger cities. In short, it was like categorisation of undeveloped, underdeveloped, developing and developed nations of the world and stereotype attitudes towards each category. Our country is still considered as country of snake charmers and poor beggers despite our rich history and stupendous contributions of ancestors in science, maths, universe and medicines etc. and modern developments in various fields. Such attitudes are there for villages in cities. Once upon a time our country was famous as sone ki chiriya( golden bird).
Finally, I became a very good, smart, self centered and  selfish professional. Though I knew all my adopted  good habits were bad or worse as I was a villager by birth and having selfless helping attitude. I used them for survival, wherever necessary, in the so called developed big, bigger and biggest cities.
But at last, I accept,  I was lost with no identity. I am still a villager by heart. No city without villages can flourish. I have settled at the countryside and road has reached upto my village. I am afraid of changes. ???
We should never change our good habits. We may refine, define and confine them to be more confident in changing world. Humanity should get importance for over all developments and self-interest. We should take lessons from ancestors and utilise experience of seniors. We know old habits die hard but existence and continuity should get preference. Morality may fill every gap.
We have tried to make harmful cocoons around us in the name of developments. It is better to be wise to look into the future from the outcomes of present. Simplicity paves for completeness and spreads smile.
Such habits will pay forever.
