Engagement

We have divided day and night into twenty-four hours. We have most of these times for ourselves. Even then, we think of some engagement for the rest of the time we feel free. The rest of the time is a main controlling enzyme of the quality of life we lead. This controls the “me” time of an individual for the whole life.

Everyone has complete time for themselves in childhood. That time decreases as the age grows but twenty-four hours of day and night remain static. Everyone has to adjust the life every day within this stipulated duration. The making or devastation of life depends on self-controlled activities. So the activities should be well planned considering all  prospects. If they are governed by moral values, the future of individuals and society, in turn, will be progressive, free of all sorts of shortcomings. Otherwise, the reverse is also possible in life, due to immoral practices.

The moment selfishness overshadows all positive norms, the trouble starts, greediness occupies front seats and life becomes hell. These types of thoughts ruin the present and future of family and society.

The past of life is mainly influenced by the behaviours and attitudes of parents, friends and relatives. The best of those should be taken for building the life in the present. This legacy is passed on like that from generation to generation. The dominance of positivity in actions, emotions and attitudes etc. makes life heaven and peace prevails in the surrounding. The godly environment inculcates thoughts – live and let live- everywhere. There may always be additions in life. This type of engagement we may get from religious thoughts.

Engagements should be both professional and personal. Personal engagements, controlled by mental ability and maturity, give direction to all types of engagements. Professional engagements give means to survive and do good for society. Purposeful life depends on both in the changing world.

Sitting idle without ideals is harmful. Engagement is a must. Otherwise, life will be like stagnant water. Stagnant water becomes rotten. Thinking, for the betterment of humanity, should be a continuous process with respect to developments. Short goals pave the path for large goals. These are steps on a stair to reach on top to see the world and give return gifts to the society which has given opportunities and meaning to one’s life.
What the world, we find at present, is built by deep thoughts of ancestors in a progressive manner. We should have similar types of thoughts for engagements.

The negative thoughts may ruin self-life. Selfless is always better than selfishness. The present is the gate to the future. The present demands utmost utilization. What we sow so we reap. The fruit of action may not be personal.

Engagement is extremely private and a privilege of every individual. But its effects may be long-lasting. We may take a few qualities from nature’s creatures for timely engagements. Engagement is the necessary content of life. We should be engaged both mentally and professionally. Engagements as per interests fetch pleasures and satisfactions. The best engagement is forgetting self for others’ welfare. Even God loves it as the first step towards salvation.

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.

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.

Love – My will

I am happy, I want love.
I am sorry, I want  love.
I am alone, I want  love. 
I am lost, I want love.

I am to dream, I want love.I am to move,
I want love. I am to stay, I want love. I am to continue, I want  love. I am to bear, I want love. I am to yield, I want love. I am to sleep, I want love. I am to sweat, I want love.

Love me to grow. Love me to love. Love me to console. Love me to play. Love me to help. Love me to hate. Love me to sow. Love me to reap. Love me to believe. Love me to live. Love me to die. Love me to swim. Love me to sink.

Love me to be sure. Love me to be confident. Love me to be me. Love me to be lovable.

Love me for others. Love me for yourself. Love me for myself. Love me for all. Love me for nothing. Love me for everything. Love me for greatness. Love me for nature. Love me for creatures. Love me for less. Love me for more. Love me for beauty. Love me for ugliness.

God I am your part, don’t depart, always love me. I am in love of love for your love.

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.

I am not bad

After a long time, I am in mood. I know that I may learn lessons even from a child. I have been to school to get certificate as license for getting service to be useful to clear dues to the society. I know nature is an open book. I have learnt a lot from it. I have finally understood that nothing is mine. I accept that I have to leave all my copyrights here before departure. I have seen people, hoarding for nothing. They are helpless when government’s agencies raid for  properties purchased disproportionate to their income. But I am astonished to note that  my neighbors are  boasting on raid of income tax department. It proves that they are rich by hook or by crook and having money, but are not traitors. They get more respect, more invitations to attend functions, after raid. Even media give coverage to them.

I have no money and no respect among my neighbors. But I am famous in my area because of by habits of drinking coloured or colourless water, that is tasty liquor for me. It is my best friend and encourages me to do the impossible things. I forget myself and people get entertained in gratis- free of cost. Older ones give intelligent comment, as well wishers of my family and repent on my plight. But the children and young ones enjoy from my drain dwelling. Every dog of my street recognizes me as friend. They take care of me on the street better than sensible neighbours.

Really, I feel myself very bad person for family as well as for the society, when I am normal. I want to meet my natural end at the earliest for benefits of all others.

But I have changed my mood and am thankful to invisible eye opening, ever changing and challenging virus sir’s effect COVID-19, the pandemic. Everyone was fearing by the grace of virus sir and preferred to be in self locked house. What a pleasant surprise- mother nature was happy. Air and rivers’ water have cleaned themselves, pollution free. Sky was clear. For the first time I saw stars twinkling with joy. But I was in trouble only for my sweetie liquor. It was not easily available as there was complete lock down and market with enticing liquor shops was closed. There were complete dry days. I used my days fruitfully, I got some knowledge from discussions on economy by law maker leaders through TV during lock down. This added fuel to the fire and I became a little bit nervous due to non availability of my tonic. But one day virus sir got pity and some shops were permitted to open. It was to my utter surprise that my heart catching, all time attractive and life giving lovely shop of liquors were given first priority. I, for the first time, understood the vital role of liquors in the earnings in economy. I felt proud to be consumer of economy booster. There were cartoons in many news papers and social sites on the importance of brain soothing liquor in economy. It was more encouraging and I felt myself in heaven. But a few state governments raised taxes on my beloved liquors to fill their coffer. It could not deter my determination to be by the side of my enticing bottle, full of energy and enjoyment. I was thanking to all my friends who introduced me to this life changing liquid and made it my habit for ever.

Now, my doubt, on banning  the liquor sale by all political parties in their manifestos during election and there after keeping them in cold storage till next election, was clear. I was so grateful to virus sir that my special role in the economy became evident. I was feeling proud and was on the top of the world. I congratulated myself first time in life on this so called bad habit. I remember a dilogue of a very famous film and think in the similar way for me – I am a drunkard but I am not bad man.
Now, I know good habit constructs but bad habit contributes. Now, I have gratitude to myself. Otherwise, I always pay the same to others and use to be obliged for trivial assistance given by them in carrying me home in night. I, even, usually express thankfulness to not deserving one for nothing. It shows my humbleness, a good habit of liquor’s effect.
Now I have courage to have a demand  that area  around the shop upto certain distance should be declared as prohibited to avoid disturbances in peaceful and heaven feeling, consuming milieu and tress passers will be prosecuted strictly. In such areas of comfort real meaning of democracy is understood and unity within diversity is strictly observed without vested interests. Everyone does not want  disturbances in heavenly sitting, concentration, discussion and at last during unification with bottle wherein soul is floating. Every drop matters for its lovers in the line of water conservation,  where every drop of water is assumed to be saved.
So, neglecting my brothers of pious soul, useful to the nation may have hazardous effects, because this profession is economic booster not only in rainy days but also in happy days. Persons like me are respectable and deserve space in society, because we follow rules and my shops are functioning under license. If possible there may be my day. I am waiting for welcoming function for all our brothers who are contributing in uplifting the standars of living of others via economic growth. We are givers and givers only.
If every one of us give details of direct as well as indirect benefits of this so called bad habits, there will be shortage of papers to jot down. Every drop of pleasure giving, grief removing and idea generating nectar like pious liquid is giving everything and needs proper respect. A separate chapter on liquid economics on liquors should be devoted in the concerned subject. We are finally thankful and express sincere gratitude to virus sir for making known to the world, the power of common but special liquid famous as liquor.

G A N D H I – Beyond Horizon

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?

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.
