Drain the anger

Sometimes in a bad mood,
Even with our dear once,
we can act a little rude,
Ok ok, may be a lot rude.

Like a wishing from Grandma,
Full of childhood nicknames,
Even after you done diploma,
(you’r grown up)
Fills you with some old flames.

This feeling of anger,
is a big big danger,
Right from your health,
To closest relationships,
Can become​ endanger.

So this has to be dealt with,
Before it gains control over you,
Before it finds your mind’s pith,
And it becomes a hollow bamboo.
(you are unable to think anything)

So how to find a way,
That keeps anger away,
So, for you life can lay,
A beautiful​ every day.

There is a technique, I learn about,
That stop you when, feel like shout,
Simply just tire yourself somehow,
Drain yourself of that wild energy,
Use it for something, make you proud.

A great weakness of anger,
It needs lots of energy,
To keep your mind, a boiler,
Cut out this ancillary,
Your emotions will be milder.

Go out for a run,
Jump on a trampoline,
Do a difficult math problem,
(that also drains energy)
Understand what I mean.

This may be a little trick,
For sure, difficult at first,
But, easy after some ticks(time),
Help you cope with outburst,
And you may never get sick

Slowly,
Will become part of your routine,
You will be wondered,
At the sudden change of scene (of your life)
You will become, more savvy, less mean,
It has worked for me,
Like my personal, psychology dean.

The virtue of sacrifices

image
Greatest symbol of Sacrifice

God’s greatest gift to mankind
Is our body , soul and mind
Without these gifts even
Our existence will be blind.

So, why not enjoy these gifts
Why not do everything
That make our spirits lifts
Why do we need to care about
Any on this world’s shits.

This feels a great virtue to live by,
Enjoying life full and hard,
Drink, play, dance , don’t be shy,
Why sacrifice anything at all,
Sacrifice are great, feels like a lie.

You may feel like this,
Sacrifices has no bliss,
If you feel so, I am sorry
You are giving
Something great, a miss

True, sacrifices take away
Something you like
A close friend , memorables
Or a desired bike

But, there is a happiness,
Free from many distress,
Leaving something for others
May feel like a bless.

A mother wants a new handbag
So, with her friends, she can brag
But, instead she decided to take,
A cake for her children, she can bake.
Sacrificing her bragging for a cake,
What you feel
Is she more happy, or regret make her shake.

The satisfaction she will feel then,
Cannot be written with a pen.
A little regret for this feeling
Is what we call good dealing.

Everyone wants to enjoy their life
Think what happens,
If everyone do what they like,
Students will never study,
And play all day with their buddy.
Air station personal will sleep at night
Forgetting about sky full of flights.
Your father go to bar, to feel like a guy,
Instead of singing you a lullaby.
Soldiers will leave border to their fate,
As they are missing their mate.

Can you imagine such a world,
It will be like a flying bird,
Heading senselessly
Till it is blasted to shreds.

Sacrifices are the engines of this world,
That keeps it functioning and move it forward
Small and big ,sacrifices made by everyone of us,
Never get unawarded, for the world is are a plus,
In return you get, satisfaction, happiness and god’s own trust

DREAM Real or Lies or can be realized

See the dreams
They are beautiful, majestic , unreal
And many times are nightmare

Whatever dream I see
It feels like another world in me
Don’t you feel upset
When it turns out not to be

These dreams are a lie
After all we can’t fly
Then
In dreams Why we feel so alive
Sometimes better than our lives

In dreams we see, we smell, we hear
We feel joy , we feel fear
We may live a new life
But still we say, they are unreal

Well, reality is a cocept of relativity
What is real for someone
For other it may be falase
What other may see as impossible
Someone may make it possible

World says we humans cannot fly
Wright Brothers says we can
Indian’s nightmare , they are tanned
Is a beautiful dream for wrestners
Who take vacations in tropical lands

What is real is what you believe
Is a sham, it is a lie
What you believe becames real
Is the true to be lead by

You still think dream
Cannot be real
Of I say you  too are
Can you make yourself bear

Ancient Shastras and Puranas
Tell about our real existence,
That we are just projections,
In the dreams of Lord Vishnu,
Controlled by his will,
There is nothing like our own stance.

I am not being religion bias
It’s being proved by mordren wise
Greatest Physist and theorist
Says there is a great possibility
That our universe is 2D

That’s right! Our reality
Can just be a show of comedy

If you are real
Then you may also be a dream
So how can you say
Your dreams are just dream

If not , then tell you a secret
With your faith and determination
You can bridge the gap
Between reality and dream station
Afterall this if the only difference
Between Science and science fiction.

The ironical Sudama

    Sudama was a very close friend of Lord Krishna. They spend most of their childhood together. But when Lord Krishna became Dwarika Naresh (king of Dwarka) , poor Sudama went to Lord Krishna’s palace to beg for help to save his family from poverty.
    The story is as such that when he reached the palace gates, he was stopped and harassed by the palace guards. Even when queen Rukmani saw him (she doesn’t know he was Krishna’s friend), she pushes him out.
     Sudama was harassed until Krishna was told about his arrival. After that story takes completely opposite your.

     Thousands of year later, when this story was being enacted at Mata ki Choki(religious function devoted to Goddess Durga), act takes an ironical turn.

Poor Sudama with lots of money

    When Sudama entered , instead of being harassed by palace guards he was welcomed cash. garlands and notes of 10 rupees by all the devotees around.
    It is tradition, where you welcome the pandli members (those who sing Bhajans (devotional songs), and may entertain with some acts relating to mythology) with garlands and some money.
    Now,  the hands of poor Sudama were filled with some serious cash(zoom the pic). With backstage a little far away, he had no choice but to carry on with the act as it is.
     This incident is really an irony and funny to see the clash of Indian traditions.
       Religious and funny. The combination don’t seem often.

      
    

Electron

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
plan
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

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?)
    
    

   
    
      

There is always something to give

      The novel ‘Shadowfell’ may be only all average teenage fantasy novel. But a thing that I liked about it is the like ‘there is always something to give’.
     The protagonist tried to give always give something to a needy even if she was herself one.
     But this seems possible in a story only.
     Have you heard a begger giving something to help someone. Or a bankrupt company investing in another company? I haven’t.
   How can we give something if we have nothing ourselves?
    With this thought another thing I remembered. It was said by a Pandit in some Shanti Paath( a Hindi ritual ceremony).
     The topic was levels of helping.
The art of helping can be along 3 levels

1. In the First level , we directly help others by giving some materialistic resource. It can be financial or non financial or physical help.
     Like you give your friend a ride to home. Or give some money to help a poor or help an blind man to cross the road. 
    This is the highest and most punya( your goodness count of Karma) awarding as you give some resources (time, money , others) that may be
useful to you in this life or Right now.

2. Well if you are as good as the needy person , you still have the second level. You can talk to will You can say condition words to release some of hours tension.
     It may not solve his problems but at least his inner feeling will trouble him less. 
     If you have nothing material to give use your words. Motivate him to face the problem. Don’t let them think negatively. May be this is what he needs. May be sing a song for him.
      This level awards less punya points then first level.

3. If you can’t even do this. Because of any reason like cultural differences or this is not the place for you talk or you think that the person may misunderstand your words and intensions . Or you are far far away. But you soul wanna help.
    One thing you can still give. A small prayer. Pray to the god which ever you beleive in. Pray for him to be victorious in facing the problem.
     You can always pray and it hold value. If you cannot help directly ask God to do it. This is the last you can do.
    May be it not seen enough. But something is better then nothing.
      It awards the punya points but already you will be satisfied that you have donr something. And you will also show gods that you have the spirit to help those in need .
      This process that there is always something to give even when you have nothing.
      Here ends this post. Hope you like it. I will pray for you.
   
    

Why Hindus worship so many gods

    

image
Idols of Hindu gods

It is believed that there are 84,00,000 gods and goddess in Hinduism. This figure is greater than all gods ever mentioned in any other mythology put together. Though main are 20 – 25 only. But still why so many. All other main religions like Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism etc. beleives in existence of one good only. They bellringer that God had no form. Neither human nor anything else. Take Allha. Even Christ is not mentioned as god.(he was son of God)
     History has shown that every religion who has worshipped good which are shown as having forms(humans or otherwise) , those who are diety worshippers had been destroyed. Greeks, Egyptians and many more.
     However,  Hinduism not only survived for thousands of years, it also spend and not of the third largest religion in the world. How a diety worshipping religion flourished when all others were finished???
    To know answer to this we need to understand the concept of Aatma. Aatma on Sanskrit means ‘true self’. It is user to refer to the soul or spirit that resides inside our body.
     Can I ask who you are? You may tell me you are Rita, Shanti , Sophi, Bulma , Joseph or whatever your beautiful name is. You are not your name or your body. You are not your eyes out your mouth out your senses. You are a spirit. A child of God. You may see yourself as your body which has a form. But your true self is formless just like the almighty.

     So why are we trapped in this body. Why our spirit can’t be free. Why do we need this form?
    
       I am assuming that you all know about GUI(Graphic User Interface). It is the thing that lets us communicate with our computer by means of icons and clicks. Think of there was no graphic user interface was developed. Those who know about DOS know how difficult was it to interact with the computer. It is really tiresome for writing long commands for functions that take 2 clicks nowadays.
      GUI helps us interact with computer. It doesn’t mean that it is really the thing being that is doing the actual work. It is not the code that is truly carrying out the work. It is just an illusion(just like in movie Matrix) to let us communicate with the computer.
   Similarly
       Our body, our face, our senses are just an interface between us an the outside world.
       Our true self lies inside. We need this interface because we can’t imagine anything without it. It enables us to understand the laws of the universe and physics that covers our life.
      Would apple have fallen on Newton’s head of concept of mass does not exist. Would Newton have discovered gravity if he was not able to see our feel that apple?
     We can’t even imagine anything that doesn’t have form. That doesn’t have mass or volume. Even our feelings, love, friendship, hate are towards something that has a form.
     Try to think of God as form less. Let alone praying to him, you can’t even imagine him.
     Even if you can constitute a vauge picture can you feel the same connection as you feel to Krishna or Jesus Christ or Gurus or anyone you pray to. It is very hard to imagine something other that data that out senses receive.
     Can you imagine something that has no smell, taste, sound, colours and you cannot feel it. You may friendship or love but they are directed towards something which have form.
      That’s why almighty takes many forms or send his messengers to us. To remember us our duty towards our fellow beings.
    All religions have mentioned that God is one. Good is one but take many forms, so that we can imagine him, can connect to him.
      This theory is an important part of Hinduism and is mentioned many times in our holy texts.(puranas and Vedas and Upanishads).
      It is one on the most important teachings of holy Gita also.
     Many westerners think that we are diety worshippers. But let us tell them that we are proud of it. We promote the concept on One god to rule then all. But we are also personally connected to our dieties.
      We humans can be more close to a form rather than something that we can’t even imagine. Isn’t this also the reason for Jesus to come to earth.
     Lots of thanks for reading and understanding our ideology.
    

Mother nature is not even targeting us

       On   I was sitting at my home studying for upcoming exams, just then I felt the bed is vibrating , and so does the floor and everything around. Wah! What was happening. A 7.9 earthquake struck Nepal and the entire northern India including Delhi (where I live). The vibrations were low in Delhi. But it continued for more than 2 minutes. I speculated that some place would not have been so lucky.
       The epicenter of the earthquake was at Katmandu, Nepal , a country that was not at all ready for such calamity. Till now dearth tool has reached above 10,000 and increasing. Three is how damage to infrastructure and reconstruction would be worth about 60,000 crore rupees (10 billion dollars i.e approximately 40% of country’s GDP).
      Nepal is a poor country full of poors . This calamity has featured everything for many. More than 1.4 million children are homeless, cold and hungry. Millions are relying only on uncoupled noodles for food.
      Why all this to the most vulnerable? Why mother nature showed its wrath on these poor people? Mother nature should be living and caring. When you look at those people anyone will doubt this.
      So does mother nature is not do divine, not do loving and caring, not so mother like. She brings earthquake, tsunamis, feminine, eruptions killing millions and destroying everything for millions more. Separating the families, killing dear once, destroying someone’s home. This is not what we except from a mother. Do we? Mother should be exact opposite.
        So do we abolish the phrase mother nature ? Do we start believing that there is nothing divine about mother nature? Does humanity is an orphan ?
        If you agree on this you w will change your opinion in next 5 minutes. Just read till the end .
        Do you know how much energy is released during a normal earthquake? It is really more than 10,000 times the energy released when Hiroshima was destroyed by the fat boy(code name of nuclear weapon that destroyed Hiroshima during world war 2). Yes you hear it correct. That much energy. Even a cyclone have energy around 2-3 thousand Hiroshima bomb. A tsunami easily have energy of 1,00,000 Hiroshima bomb. What that means. Even a normal earthquake have the potential to destroy 10,000 cities.
     But does any calamity in the entire human history has done such case destruction. No, because otherwise humanity will not be thriving on earth. I believe that we would not even present on this planet. Human race would have been extinct thousand of years ago.
        We are fortunate that mother nature is not specifically targeting us. Otherwise………
       We humans give too much importance to ourself. May be we are at top of the food chains. We are most intelligent being. But we all know how much we are dependant on nature. We are a very small civilisation at the corner of the vast universe. We areusext to nothing when compared with mother nature.
      But mother nature doesn’t think like that. She considers us her dear children. She had given us the air we breathe, tthewater we drink, solid earth to live on – perfect conditions to live a good life.
    Then why these calamities come. This is because even mother nature sometimes require to release some pressure. Do you know if an earthquake have never happened in human history. Earthquakes are result of movements of tectonic plates. Only way to stop earthquake is to stop this movement. But this movement is important for recycling carbon that is an essential condition for life. In big planets like Saturn or Jupiter where there is no tectonic movement for to very strong gravity , life will be not possible (even if they have all other conditions to support life).
      Hence, whatever mother nature does is for the well being of her children. There is colletral damage in everything. We have to understand that mother nature have very big responsibly of maintaining this universe and all her children. She cannot love only a few.
     May be you have lost someone dear in a natural calamity(I pray that out is not so), you may find my opinion offensive. Try to put your self at the place of mother nature. You will feel great power. But with great power comes great responsibility. This is one of the greatest law of nature that it cannot break itself.
     Even then she tried to protect us as much as possible. Like in Nepal earthquake 10,000 people died and in Hiroshima more than 1,50,000 people have for in the nuclear blast.
      Mother nature have given us so much and what we have returned. Ecological imbalance or global warming. Harming her other children. Do you think she will tolerate this. All this calamities are just a small warning. Warning for us to rectify out mistake when it is still time. Else we will be punished. Mother nature will protect life at any cost. Even if cost is our extinction. She has done this before (like when dinosaurs proceed to be threatening to other life forms they are blown away) , she will do it again if necessary. It is better if we improve before that.
      May be we cannot stop any natural calamity but we can at least help those affected by it. This way we can show her that we are deserving of her love and much. Pray with me that soul of all who lost their life in Nepal earthquake may test in peace in the lap of mother nature and born again from her womb to live a happy life and serve their fellow beings.
      Thanks for reading. May you have a blissful life.
      

See beyond the eye

We learned a lot about the Moon, but what we really learned was about the Earth. The fact that just from the distance of the Moon you can put your thumb up and you can hide the Earth behind your thumb. Everything that you’ve ever known, your loved ones, your business, the problems of the Earth itself—all behind your thumb. And how insignificant we really all are, but then how fortunate we are to have this body and to be able to enjoy loving here amongst the beauty of the Earth itself.

— Jim Lovell, Apollo 8 & 13 astronaut, interview for the 2007 movie In the Shadow of the Moon

     Living your life on this planet can you keep everything behind your thumb. Can you say that everything around you or inside you is insignificant? Your family,  friends, your video games,  smartphone,  drawing book – your entire life. Can this all be insignificant?
         Of course not. Your life is a gift from almighty.  So are your family and friends.
       A single life can be so big,  so complex,  so much to discover.  Let this all be multiplied by 7 billion (population of the world). Earth has so much in it.  It has so many different experiences,  so many stories,  so many souls- so much worth.
          Yet an astronaut standing on moon sees what,  a small sphere which he can hide behind his thumb. All the people,  their stories,  history of millions of years can be hidden behind a thumb.
      Isn’t that amazing. It clearly proves the fact that there is much more to the universe that a naked eye can see.
     It is not important what we see,  how we see it and how we interpret it is important.
      Yesterday,  when I was going to attend a wedding,  our car got trapped in traffic jam. The jam was caused due to 3 buses that are taking two third of the road and moving with the speed of the sloth. It was really irritating.  Looking at the buses I remembered similar incident but that had happened in GTA Vice City(a violent video game).  At that time, I had got out of my car and blasted the f*****g bus with a rocket launcher.  That had felt awesome.  I imagined to do the same thing here also(thanks god Papa don’t keep rocket launcher in his car).
        The paint of the window panels of the bus was dark and I was not able to see inside the bus. But as our car move closer I saw a faint shadow of a mother with her child clutched to her inside the bus. Suddenly,  I realised what I was thinking a moment ago.  How wrong and sinful it will be.  In my guilt, I spent rest of the journey in silence.
       This incidence tells us that the human nature is such that we depends on our eyes too much. Eye is most important sense of human beings, but we should not forget what makes us human. Our rational thinking and our ability to understand beyond what our senses can tell us.
         Everything we see,  we hear,  taste, touch or feel has as much deeper meaning than it appears to be. I am sure you have heard the phrase ” behind the scenes “.
       Let us take an example of a hit movie.  Imagine that you are waiting for its screening in front of your tv. But before begging the screening they give a little intro of how the movie is made. How the writer got the inspiration for story? How the director imagined it? The hard work of the entire team.
         So the movie for which you just have to on tv have not dropped from the sky. It is the result of the passion and hard work of many which you can’t see.
       If you give a little thought to it, you will find that there are various levels of this behind the scenes. Like for the film hard work of the entire team along with latest technology is required. For this technology you require genius minds. And such geniuses can only be humans in this planet. For humans to live,  air, water and food is required. For these elements are required which comes from almighty himself.(all things lead to him in the end).
      The basic idea is we should not be blinded by our eyes(wow that sounds ironic).  There can be a whole world behind it.  Try to see beyond your eyes. May be you can find something worth appreciating.
        A thing that one of my teacher told me holds great value in my life. He told me ” Whenever you decide something is boring and not worth your time, Try to bear it  for just 10 minutes. And then decide again. I am sure you will find something interesting “
        I have experimented in many things and found it very true(like in reading or blogging or programming.  I love them now ).  It has helped me in many subjects which I should have despised.
       Everything weather how stupid it looks or how boring it feels,  is the creation of almighty and can have a great history or hard work of many.  Can such a thing cannot worth your time. Learn to appreciate these things.  Don’t be a fool to think that something is rubbish.
       Aesthetics is one of the basic and most important quality of human race.  If you can’t love something,  can’t appreciate something you will not be able to feel true happiness.  Even to master any discipline like history,  philosophy,  IT or physics,  you need to first learn to appreciate it.
          See any book of any subject weather sciences or humanities or arts anything,  in the initial chapter you will always find introduction or background or history of that subject. Why it is given? Why not directly come to the main topics. It is because they want to first capture your interest.  To tell you that it has not come out of the sky.  It has a history and hard work of many behind it. It is worthy of your attention.
        Try to be more than just a watcher.  Be an observer.  Be an interpreter.  Be aesthetic.  Try to look beyond your eyes. It will make you a better person as well as a better learner.
           With this let us end this article.  I hope you like it and you appreciate it’s meaning.  All the best for your life.
