The gaps between

Looking at the clouds,
We feel a little drowsy,
Lazily moving in sky,
Away from things noisy.

Slowly gliding through the sky,
Smoothly and easily,
Don’t know when hours went by,
Makes the scene artfully.

After seeing some time,
After forgetting the world,
You will notice a rhyme,
A pattern will emerge.

A cloud cloud comes, it goes,
Another comes to fill its place,
This phenomenon almost foreclose,
Any chance of empty space.
Only just for a few seconds,
Blue sky is allowed a gaze.
Where sunlight can shine,
Across all the cloudy haze.

Here, exists a great metaphor,
Showing how our mind works,
Realizing what otherwise a slur,
Finding some great perks.

Replace clouds with thoughts,
In our big and complex mind,
They come and go in lots,
So much thinking can make us blind,

So, to think with clarity,
We may need a little sunshine,

Focus on the tiny divide,
Between the thoughts,
Where mind is a void,
Just an empty slot.

That is where magic happens,
There a great idea shapens,
The point of all thoughts adhesion,
It is worth atleast some admiration.

And great has become those,
Who have seen the sunshine,
In these void gaps,
A state of pure crystalline.

Einstine, Hawkins, Walt Disney,
Spend hours gazing at nothing,
It really does seems funny.

All the great discoveries,
Not happen when they are,
Deep in work with all furies,
But rather when the just relax,
Without all the wordly worries.

It doesn’t mean you just rest,
Always sleeping in your nest,
To enjoy the great fest,
You need to pass Karma test.
(Karma is hard work, you need to do)

After all, there can be no gap,
Without any cloud on sky map.


The electron on which forms and world are built
Leaped into being a porticle of God,
A spork from the eternol Energy split,
It is the infinite’s blind minute abode.

In that small flaming chariot shiva rides
The One devised innumerably to be;
His oneness in invisible forms he hides
Time’s tiny temples of eternity.

Atom and molecule in their unseen
Buttress on edifice of strange onenesses,
Crystal and plant, insect and beast and man,
Man of whom the World-Unity shall seize,

Widening his soul-spark to an epiphany
Of the timeless vastness of Infinity
                               – By Sri Aurbindo

           Saw this outside a peaceful temple. Got a feeling of safety on reading this. So sharing it to spread the feeling

Against the tides by sheer power of will

The tide hit hard and
You have worst card

Not prepared for this assault
You have no chance to revolt
You will be doomed
Even if it is not your fault

Fate will force you to surrender
Who can go against tide and thunder
No eat to escape it
No torch of hope lit

You will be drowned
In the depth of darkness
And forgotten forever
In the land of lightness

This tide threatens your very existence
Will you fall to circumstances
Or be different and
Refuse to take part in fate’s dances

The choice of for you to make
As anyone else including fate
Has in it nothing at stake

The tide seems targeted at you
But its aim is not to destroy you
It may merely following the verse
Due to random events of the great

The tide of dead, does not have a will
Or am important role
It is like a saucer ball
Rolling as directed by us another will

Just like the players control the ball
You can control the tide by you will
Before it makes you fall.

Instead of drowning,
Surf on the tide
Instead of enemy
It will become your bride
Who will carry you on the banks
Where there is happiness
And you may think
Adventure was worth the price

So never lose hope,
Never be in despair
As you have your will
That can make any Strom,
Any tornado, and tide still

Value of time in our daily life

    Time is considered as a very important source . As important as money. We have realized the importance of time in buisness , governance, management and all the major and minor fields.
   But we usually not think about this significant of time in our day to day life. We usually take time for granted. How many times have you had a thought like “let is do this tomorrow not today” , ” we will do it 5 minutes after. After all what does 5 minutes matter.”
    But 5 minutes too can matter. If you neglect them they may not affect your routine. If you utilise them properly they may save you from lot of trouble.
    Here, are some of my experiences where 5 minutes have mattered.
    In the morning usually Papa drops me collage. He insisted that we should leave by 7:40 am  . First day I delayed for just 5 minutes. It started a argument between us. I fail to understand what is so wrong if I am just 5 minutes late.
   Well I understood when we reach the circle of Dhaula Kuan( a busy intersection in Delhi, India). It was already full of buses and office going people. It took around 20 min to cross it and I was 10 min late for first period.
    Next day I ensured that we leave at exactly 7:40.
    With just going 5 min early we got much less traffic and empty Dhaula Kuan circle. I reached collage 15 min early. This incidence taught me an lesson with remembering.
     As I usually reach early, I started noticing who reaches the college first, second and so on. A ranking system formed in mranking
    I observed that ranking is someone can drop to 6 or 7 places by just 2 min delathathis may seem childish. But this is applicable on many other places in life like a race or FCFS services.
    Weather you are first out last may depend on 5 minutes.
   Do you know that according to a research an average person wasted around 6 years of his life doing nothing. How these wasted 5-5 minutes converts to 6 years is matter of awe.
    Think of you can utilise these wasted years to do something you love – read books, watch movies, spend time with your dear ones , won’t your life will have much more meaning.
    Avoiding these delays is not so difficult as it seems. tommy. t have to plan your day.
    Believe me just making even a rough time table with achievable targets can increase you productivity my 150%(2.5 times) and your happiness by 50%.
    Research of many years and experience of 100s of successful. It will  people is backing this fact.
      Try this you will feel this yourself. Today before going to bed make a checklist of things you want to achieve tommrow. It will hardly take 5 min. List may cointain anything . Even stupid things (like plans to irritate your sister). Make a resolve to beat it tomorrow. At the end of the list save 5 minutes to make targets for the next day.
      With time as this habit will become part of your daily routine you will be more productive, confident in yourself and a more happy person.
     Because there all will also be part of your daily routine.
      Thanks for reading. Have a happy and productive life.

Wisdoms of Warren Buffet

      Well who haven’t heard the name. A great billionaire of America.
Wikipedia describes him as
Warren Edward Buffett ,born in August 30, 1930, is an American business magnate,investor and philanthropist. He is the most successful investor of the 20th century. Buffett is the chairman, CEO and largest shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway, and consistently ranked among the world’s wealthiest people. He was ranked as the world’s wealthiest person in 2008 and as the third wealthiest in 2015. In 2012 Time named Buffett one of the world’s most influential people.”
        I too have heard the name. Thought he was another billionaire of America. But this WhatsApp message created a respect in my heart for him and his philosophy


Sayings of Warren Buffet
On earnings : Never depend on a single income . Make investment to create a second source.
     Even if you save much and put out in a bank, you cannot besolution  protection of your hard earned money. The world is dynamic in nature. How can be so sure the bank will remain in future as well. The solution is create a second source. And what is better then investment. Invest in real state, jewellery, bonds, stocks etc. That is the mantra of Warren Buffet also.

On Spending: “If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need
  Said very nicely. The aim should be spending for living and not other way rthingsDo a simple exercise. Think and make a list of things in your house today you not need. You will be surprised. Think hope much money you have wasted on this.
    It is not necessary that you have to own the latest phone or car etc. These are material things. You may want to purchase them now. But what about when you lose that momentary interest.
    Instead save money for times of need. Because at that time only this money will be your best friend. Not your car or phone

On Savings: “Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving”.
        This must be strictly followed. First ensure the future, then, only you can enjoy the present worry free. Am average earning person should save atleast 50% of his income. Believe me that is only possible if you set aside that amount at the 1st of every month (the day you get paid). After that you will be surprised where your salary is gone.
       This practice is enough** to make you a billionaire before you retire. (Who won’t want that).

On Taking risk: “Never test the depth of the river with both feet”
    It is true that higher returns means higher risks. But it doesn’t mean that you should put all your money in most risky investment in greed of higher returns.
    Do not take just risk take ‘calculated risk’ . You must judge well the resource in which you are investing in. If you yourself cannot, consult a good financial advisor.
     But never go throwing your money anywhere meeting on your luck.
    Check with one feet first what is the depth on the risk.

On investment: “Do not put all eggs
in one basket”
       Imagine you have purchased 4 eggs. You put them in a basket which you trust can carry them. And the basket from your hand. All your 4 eggs will break
    But consider of you had put only 2 eggs in basket, 1 in your pocket and 1 in your other hand. Atleast 2 eggs will survive the accident and you have something for breakfast.
     The money follows the same rules. You need to diversify where you put your money. Never put your savings in just one type of investment. Use different resources (like save in bank, stocks, bonds, precious metals etc.). So that failure on one does not mean your savings resulting in null.

On Expectations: “Honesty is very
expensive gift. Do not expect it from
cheap people”
      Very important. With growth of human race, their greed, lust for power, selfishness have also grown.
     Never trust anyone with your savings. Honest people (in Hindi we will say like raja Harishchander) are more rare then diamonds on this planet at the present.
      If you are investing your hard earned money in something judge the resource yourself. Not trust just anyone.

    Wow! Now I feel like I can be the next Warren Buffet.
    He is a genius with great ideas.
He had earned billions of dollars with these ideas.
    Now you know them also. Decide yourself what you will do with them. Thanks for reading. Hope you like this article.
Gold luck for life

The irony of hunger

        Will most of the things that comes to WhatsApp is rubbish. But some messages may force you to think. Some may even force you to doubt the ways you live and perceive life. One such message is this

      भोजन और प्रसाद में बस इतना अंतर है कि….
भोजन थाली भर भर लेते हें और छोड़ देते हें…
प्रसाद जमीन पर भी गिर जाये तो उठा कर खाते हें…..

” भोजन को प्रसाद मान लें तो कभी  बर्बाद न हो”………
“इतना ही लें थाली में, व्यर्थ न जाए नाली में”
English translation
There is only one different between Parsad and food. People fill their plates with much for. Even then they threw it. But they even eat a single grain of parsad that had fallen on the ground.
    Waste plates of food but can’t let a single grain of parsad be wasted.
   If we can assume normal food is Parsad, then nobody will sleep hungry in this world “

Parsad ,in Hinduism, is food that is offered to God as a tribute for  his blessings. When god has taken a small share (or we assume good has taken it) , the remaining is returned to devotees

   Parsad has great significanse in this great religion. Parsad is given to us by God himself/herself. It is a form of his blessing.
      You cannot refuse it even if you have diabetes (parsad is usually sweet).  And wasting it is considered a sinful act. I have seen people picking Parsad from the floor that has mistakenly fallen and eating.
     This is the kind of respect we give to parsad. Because it is considered blessings of god in the form of food. And who will want to waste that?
   On the other hand, we are not so respectful to normal food. Why? Because it is normal. It doesn’t give any divine blessing. So we take it for granted. We fill our plates with everything and eat what we like and test goes in dustbin.
      Is this right?
Of course not. Do you know that 805 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, almost one in nine, were suffering from chronic hunger.
    3.1 million children die every year due to under nourishment. That is 41%of total children’s death every year.

    ….While the irony is that the world produce enough for everyone. It is a fact started by UN.
    For the world as a whole, per capita food availability has risen from about 2220 kcal/person/day in the early 1960s to 2790 kcal/person/day in 2006-08.
    So why do many people go hungry? Why do many children die for to under nourishment?
     That is because the good you waste. That good I waste, we skill waste. Approximately, one-third that is 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted every year.  
    Is this not a very disturbing fact?
  The food is the fuel of human body. It takes on many resources like water oxygen, fertilizers, sweat of our farmers and many more to grow.
      It is the life itself. And does life is not a blessing of the Almighty? So how normal food can be less than any Parsad? And it in okay of this blessing goes into dustbin or down that drain? Would you also treat Parsad like this?
        I remember when I was a kid I usually lift my meals incomplete. Seeing this my grandmother used to tell me “it is not right. Every chapati, every grain of rice, every spoon of dal have Anndevta (God of food) sitting in it. If I wasted anything he will get angry. It will be an utter disrespect for him.
If you will waste him, then he will waste you.
     This meal you are eating is very precious. There are thousands of people who will kill for it.”
      At that time I thought it was just a bluff that were told to children. But growing up I realized most of our is true.
      Food we eat is no leads than blessing of God. So it is Parsad in every sense.
     Therefore, we should never take it for granted. We should respect it as we respect Parsad. It is NOT wastable.
     Pledge now that you will never waste good. Learn to estimate how much estimate how much food is actually required in your home. Eat to live and not live to eat.
      Even if something is left, try not let it decompose and not throw out. Try that it teach and needy. Also spread awareness about it.
      Believe me , it will be the true devotion  of the Almighty. It will give much more blessings than eating Parsad.
      Hope you liked this article and take something with you before closing your screens.
     May God bless you. (You know now how he solo. Don’t you?)
