THE 'SINGLE ACTIVITY' THAT I EVER LOVE TO DO!

Indian Bloggers

The distant Relative rang up..
  • "Dear! I never thought you behave like this.. What's your problem here? I just asked you a small help, that too...."
The mind consoled, 

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!" 

The Client shouted..
  • "My dear! Look.. You don't know me.. I take this phone and make one call to your CEO, you know what happens.. Next moment.... "
The mind consoled, 

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!"

The Boss in rage said..

  • "Don't tell me what the Client had said.. I think you are not attentive.. He need not talk to CEO.. If you continue this, I myself...."
The mind consoled, 

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!"

The Sub-Ordinate of a certain muscle power showed the finger..

  • "I expected you Sir, to be coming to our rescue.. but I never thought you play your game thus.. "
The mind consoled,  

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!"

Heard in the neighborhood,

  • "Dear! What had happened to you? We expected a minimum decency here in our Community from your side.. I suddenly noticed...."
The mind consoled, 

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!"

And on the road the Stranger pointed out,

  • "Hi! What are you saying? I thought you to be a gentleman and you are coming and questioning me here? if you talk one word...."
The mind consoled, 

"There should be a limit to anything Yaar.. This man is too much.. God only will show the way.. Be cool.. He'll get his due back soon!"

But the man firmed up..

"Let it be the distant Relative, the Customer, Boss, the Sub-Ordinate, the Neighbor or the Stranger on road, why not I lessen myself reacting here in the usual way of supporting myself in the situation and instead straight away firm up with a single thought in my heart.. 

'This moment, the so called Opponent here in my life is no way really a man to be kept away as he is my man, continuously associating with me in this life the max and is equally not angry but expressing his own difficulty or pain more verbally for which I'm indirectly responsible even if I had done my job well.. 

If seen at greater depth, all this interaction is indirectly my own need and so 

  • Let me be patient here, 
  • Let me sincerely listen to the grievance of the aggrieved party and 
  • Let me equally and readily start doing the best in that line to help him/her..'"

God smiled and instantly Blessed the man from above.. 

"You are sure with me, dear in this job as the whole Creation are my children and here you are truly helping them to redress their day to day problems!"

This is the story that ever strikes me in my life and this Single Sacred Activity of genuinely looking into my next man's need a little more than I'm asked to do exactly thus helping him/her around as much as possible.. And this one alone is the Number One Activity in my life I love to do this moment!

THE NEVER SEEN 'SMARTER GUY' IN THE TOWN!


The young man was very active in understanding certain aspects of work and life in general..

"He is quite a smart fellow!" 


Were the then Comments from his Seniors and Colleagues.. And the youth believed that beyond till on a day his purse was picked in a crowded City Bus with his ID, Driving License and a few ATM Cards lost along with the cash.. Further, he had to struggle too for a while to get back his Original documents/cards..


He was soon a man of mid thirties, a Manager at work and family man in personal life..


"He is the smartest Manager around.. None can be compared with him at his age!" 

Were the Comments in his work area..

“I don't look at these comments.. A few ups and downs have already taught me enough in my life.. They alone guide me now!" 


He thought and was managing issues with him well when on a day he was squarely blamed for lapses in his Project handling issues as few Rivals at work suddenly put him to a corner.. There was no go; He had to swallow all that but soon recovered and was active again..

The next 10 years passed.. He was then the Chief Manager at Work and a well known middle-aged Parent in the neighborhood..


"A Chief should be like that.. Never he neglects a single issue in front of him.. Real smart guy!

Were again the comments around..

“They may say anything.. But now, presently many work for me whose age is same as my years of experience in my work area.. The valuable experiences of life alone count here and they are ever the guide for me.. ”


Was his firm belief then and with that belief, he soon ventured into the Real Estate Field, carefully read every line of the Property Documents and booked a Villa in the city promoted by the Noted Builders when a serious Court Case had put the progress of the construction to a total halt indefinitely.. Having thus lost some Investment, he shelved the idea of his Dream Project and settled with a smaller flat..

No doubt, the years rolled by and he was the then grey haired man of 55 years..

“They say that it's the man that brings dignity to the GM's Post.. Our GM Sir is exactly that.. The smartest man in life!" 


Were soon the praises around..

"Forget all this talk.. Real maturity in life comes with the actual greying of hair alone and now I'm of that age.. And this never comes unless one lives through almost the entire life necessarily failing a few times!" 

Was his assertion when suddenly on a day the Partner of his Firm had out-smarted others who in no time lost 'Big Monies' and it quickly boiled down to the point that the then GM was careless in his approach for that to happen.. Thus the man was straight away asked to resign and go..

Soon he joined as the GM of another Company but with low profile and retired from there in a few years.. The real matured man was finally at home having the whole bunch of experiences of life in the field of Employment, on Family Problems, in Money Matters and in other Personal Issues with him ready to advise all, of course with a 'tailpiece' added every time, 


“My experience in life itself is almost double the ages of many young men and women around me and as such I can assertively say this..


In this life, invariably there's always a smart man next to you without an exception.. Whatever care you may take, you'll sure be followed up from the other end and at times, may be overpowered without your own knowledge.. 

Hence an ever good discipline here is.. Be ready to doubt those your own capabilities in front of these smarter people and thus constantly 'Be on Guard' every where.. Further at any point of time, venturing in steps alone is the right way so that any unforeseen loss will never become a crippling catastrophe in your life!”

LOVE ALONE HAS ITS PLACE IN 'TOGETHERNESS'; REST ARE MORE OF A SHOW!

Indian Bloggers
Two closest friends who were almost together from their childhood had to depart on a day to be almost permanently away from each other.. Just a few days before departing, their emotions ran high, each embraced the other tight and decided to have the best Photograph of theirs together on that occasion captured thru' the latest Digital Camera Technology.. 
  • Accordingly, they searched for well known Photo Studios in the City on the Net and selected one after seeing their ratings on the related Web Pages, explained their emotions to the Owner and requested him to take the finest Photograph of theirs together in their Studios.. 
  • Having got such a Classic Photograph, they quickly searched the Internet Web Pages and got a good Caption to the Photo which indicated the deepest Bond between them and got it written on the top of the Photo.. 
  • Further they searched for expressing their own feelings of togetherness on certain Standard Web Pages, got the best message, instantly felt to get the same written at the bottom of the Photograph where there was ample space and 
  • Finally, they registered on the Web Page for the Expert's Advice in that context who in turn asked them to add a Tail Piece to their Expression! 
The message of their togetherness bond was seen on the Photo thus..

'This Picture of Ours

  • Taken through the costliest Camera, is framed for a life time remembrance and the right Caption herein brings out the true inner feelings.... 
  • Shows invariably togetherness.. 
  • Truly depicts the lifetime smiles.. 
  • Would forever be appreciated when seen.. 
  • Would instantly bring out the old memories at gross level as soon as noticed.. 
  • May equally glow with the additional colors of surroundings.. 
  • Would stay for a generation.. and 
  • Would surely be many times commended upon!' 
  • They subsequently made 2 copies of the same and got them both framed with a Class Frame from a Standard Photo Frame Shop and each retained one such frame.. 
  • Equally it was planned to up load the Photograph on Social Network so that all friends and relations of theirs would see and appreciate the same..
One remarked, 

"My Dear!  Our bond forever is reflected through this Photograph which we both keep with us for a life time..
  • The Unique Photograph truly expresses our Friendship..  
  • Here are our phone numbers, E-mail addresses and we forever constantly would be communicating thru' these Media and thus keep up our unique togetherness for a life time.. 
  • Our smart phones forever carry this Unique Photo of ours and would be seen whenever we open our phones thus ever remembering our togetherness.. 
  • Further on our Laptops the photo of ours together with this message will appear the moment we open our Computers!  

I think this way, we are going to express the best of our togetherness for a life time!" 

The other friend instantly concurred with that with a big smile! An elderly wise man listening to that talk too, instantly remarked..

"My Dear boys! 

  • True Friendship does not lie in all these memories and other specified acts meticulously practiced thru' Digital World in each and every step of yours however great they may look.. 
  • It lies forever in one's readiness to sacrifice own for the other and this attitude prevails only when 'Love' plays major Role in your Friendship.. Such a Love between two friends forever..
  • Needs no reference for Existing, needs no briefing at any time and is forever depicted through right actions alone.. 
  • Is invariably the Togetherness and no additional expressions are needed to define 'It'.. 
  • Smiles all the time with Peace reigning in the Hearts of all.. 
  • Needs no appreciation but is ever praised upon.. 
  • When expressed, truly brings out the total of every subtlest memory gone into the sub conscious level.. 
  • Has it own unending Glow.. 
  • Is Eternal with no time limit set.. and 
  • Is just experienced; needs no additional comments! 
Tell me, presently where are you both truly in this Scenario?"

THE 'UNIQUENESS' OF MY NATIVE PLACE!

Indian Bloggers
I might have traveled to the distant lands a dozen times in my life where the habits, culture and behaviors of people are definitely quite different from those of my Country or especially of my Native Place..

(Actually mentioning the name of my Native Place is immaterial here and so I just leave that and proceed..)

In all these places, no doubt I very often came across everywhere smiling faces, never forgetting attitudes, always wishing for good, the best ways of saying greetings, send off etc showing off care…care….care… all the time.. A few examples being..

At Food Store..

“Hi! How do you do?”
“Did you find everything?”
“Here you go!”


At a Coffee Shop..


“Hi! How was your Day?”
“It’s 3XXX and 55YYY please!”
“There's your Coffee….Enjoy!”


At a Mall..

“The Shop is straight Right 100 yards away!”
“The Rest Rooms are to your Left….”
“You are Welcome!”


At a Public Place when encountered with a Stranger..

“Excuse Me..”
“Thank you very much..”
“It’s OK!”


At Home, when a problem was being fixed by a Service Agent..

“Hi! I am from.. There was a Complaint..”
“That’s the job done..”
“Good Bye..”


No doubt very Orderly behavior everywhere and big smiles around.. But as days moved, I distinctly could notice some special thing missing amidst all that talk, order and further the prosperity around..

As my time of visit was over to the new place I recently visited, I am again back to my own Place.. And from that day onwards I'm amidst my older interactions with my people as usual going on around..

“Hello! Sir! How are you? It’s long time I’ve seen you…. How was your visit? Sir…. Listen….There was a problem in your absence….”
“Hello Sir! Why are you coming in my way? What happened to you?”
“Where do want to go? Why are you not in the queue?”
“Hello! Please move on…. If you simply stand like that when will we reach our place?”
“Yes! You should have crossed the road a bit carefully.. It’s OK!….Leave the matter now!”
“Who will give this item for…..? Do you know the prices of these……?”
"The Place is somewhere in this area…. I was there once…. I tell you…..I think it is…..”
“Can’t you see in the front?”


Thus went on and are going on till date the immediate dialogues, push and pulls, irritated voices, enquries with no proper reply, some sarcastic remarks and even a few scoldings etc etc..

But as I re-look into all these again and again,  I could sense that 


  • There's some unique warmth in all these interactions, 
  • The irritated and angry remarks even though are hurting a bit, otherwise are quite normal as problems in front are too many for many and struggle is much much harder, 
  • The questioning looks quite well justified as unless one picks up the Pace, living would be coming to a halt in no time and 
  • And behind all what they say or what not they say, people live through humble life at the back of ever-limited resources with them but never with a let down feeling!

And in this context, I could very clearly see my inner feelings forever firming up with a Single Message from deep within that.. 

“Wherever I may go, I have to come back to this my Sweet Home Town ultimately one day.. It's my Dearest and Ever Remembered Place on the Earth! 


I love my Place more than anything else on the Globe.. Whatever my level be, ultimately I am always a King here; nothing less of that at any time! In whatever fashion all these my people may interact with me for the whole day at the end of the day, they are always my People and forever are Unique to me in this Entire World!"

THE TRUE 'OM SHANTI OM!'

Indian Bloggers
The Telephone rang up..

"Hello, dear! I'm....... Speaking.. How are you doing? The reason I rang up to you is..... See! Here, we need to necessarily spend some monies and not spending the same at this point of time is never going to be the right way.. I suggest, tomorrow we both will go to the bank........"

A few minutes of silence and again there was a call..

"Hi! Prakash! This is..... Speaking.. See, Yaar! unless we make our efforts, how can the present problem will get resolved? Listen to me.. I advise you to come with me day after tomorrow when I'm planning to go that side and let's put in our own efforts for a while............. Don't keep quite here, dear! we have to do this much atleast for the present!"

Again silence ruled for a while and there was a third call soon..

"Is it Prakash? Hello dear, how are you doing? The reason I rang up to you is........Yaar... I'm not absolutely finding any time to do that job..... It's a must that this is done before.... Can you do one thing? For a day, take some time off and go that place... I'll give you the address.... You must do it........ Don't delay here.. It's never good for all of us!"

The man in no time was in full tension not knowing what to do in the situation in front!

Many times, such situations will be with all of us and not knowing what to do, we'll be feeling utterly helpless running here and there for a while..

And that should never be the way, I should have my own life in the right way and equally there I should not be having a even an iota of doubt in my action as finally in that alone lies my true safety..

And if this safety is seen as the prime requirement of my life at any time, an advance care on my behalf alone truly solves all the issues in front of me..

A little introspection in this context..

  • The 3 Entities with us viz; Time, Money and Energy are forever in shortage in our life and God has never given to any one at any time these 3 in plenty..
  • And the associated point is, whatever be that limited given to me, unless they go on the right cause which is the requirement of the moment, it forever results in certain pain in me in my life from whose influence I can never escape..
  • And the last point is that there are my own doubts here as well as there are equally some tainted people around me who out of their self interests would try to influence my actions thus leading me to the wrong conclusions in all such cases which seemingly look right for the moment..
Once the job is done, all will leave, the repercussions forever are mine alone and none would either be ready to take up the coming pains or would be able to do so for rest of my life..

So forever, the number One discipline with me should be.. Let me ever be careful.. Very very careful.. Whenever I need to spend my these precious Time, Money and Energies with me, with a firm belief that..


  • Never they should be wasted and
  • Never they should go on the wrong cause but
  • Never they should be less for the right cause..
And I here, neither should yield nor surrender at any time to all those influences and indirect threats brought on to me and thus rise in my life as a True Personality..

The Ever Safe Personality in this One Life in front!


Where in alone, I ultimately would be able to answer the Almighty Who forever expects me in my life to Ration, Utilize and Save these 3 Precious Entities of my life as per His Ultimate Order alone!

Thus the Words Viz; Time, Money and Energy forever form my favorite 3 Words equally with the connected 3 Words Viz; Ration, Utilize and Save simultaneously existing behind these 3 Original!

HERE, THE 'RIGHT CHALLENGE' IN FRONT IS FOREVER 'HAPPINESS' ALONE!


On one of the week-ends, 2 friends with their families decided to go out to a distant place on a 2 day Picnic.. In the morning hrs, one of the friends who offered to drive the SUV, sat in the driver’s seat with seat belt on, adjusted the mirrors for rear view and set his position..
  • “During driving one should constantly keep looking into the mirrors.. There lies the safety!” 
He remarked.. The families behind smiled at him and the vehicle moved on.. On the way the gentleman filled the Fuel tank full and checked for the Tyre pressures..
  • “It's safe to have full tank on long drives with the right Tyre pressures including for the Stepney!"
He said.. The members nodded their heads and the vehicle continued moving..
  • “Regular maintenance of the vehicle at an extra cost ensures safety all along!” 
He proclaimed in between the journey.. The members were silent..
  • But soon, the man's driving was rough, too much braking and pulling along with murmuring and shouting at other road users.. 
  • The members were tight lipped all the time.. There were certain beautiful Spots on the way, but seeing the man’s mood they kept quiet and the journey continued thus endless except for the usual breaks in between.. After 5 hours of almost tense travel finally they reached the destination.. 
  • The man while reversing to park the vehicle touched the left mirror with an adjacent wall projection and the same broke into two pieces..
The day and the next day were spent at the new place and the families started back home at around 9 PM after their dinner..
  • "It's dark.. Night driving is really a tough job as you need to be in total attention.. This car now does not have the left mirror too.. I'm tired.. I can no more concentrate on driving for today!" 
Proclaimed the earlier driver friend much before the journey beginning.. No doubt, the other friend offered to drive for the return journey..
  • As he sat in the driver's seat, he quickly checked all the essentials at one stroke without uttering a single word and moved the vehicle so smoothly with no shocks, bumps and no sudden braking, the families instantly felt quite comfortable..
  • On the way initially, the relaxed man in the driver’s seat kept his passengers further at ease, briefly interacted with them at certain times all the while keeping a watch on the road..
  • In the initial one hr travel, the friend as he continued his driving, was seen giving preference to a few difficult people on the road with all politeness leaving out his turn and got a ‘Thank You’ from them.. 
  • Towards mid night the weather became a bit rough with incessant drizzles hitting the road and the visibility getting quite impaired..
  • "Be careful with the opposite vehicles.. You are not able to see much because of the darkness, rain and the associated mist around!" 
warned the morning driver who was sitting by his side..
  • The friend took extra care, reduced the speed of the vehicle, was careful while the opposite head lights were striking at him with the visibility around quite reduced in the shutters up condition..
The treacherous environment continued thus and soon they encountered a huge pool of rain waters thru' which the vehicle has to pass..
  • "We are gone.. How to pull thru' these waters? If we are bit slack in hitting the accelerator, the vehicle comes to a dead stop in the middle with waters entering the exhaust.. God only should save us now!" 
remarked the first friend..
  • The driver signaled to his friend to keep cool and with a firm footing keeping the gear in I st position steadily pulled thru' the deep waters with the raise of accelerator and simultaneous brake control all along the engine running in an excellent condition..
The first friend was almost breathless..
  • As they further traveled, the driver made it a point to explain to the family members the importance of the 3 places on the way which they missed while coming even though he could not stop for them there as it was past midnight..
  • And finally the families reached their homes around 4 AM indirectly quite relaxed even though they missed part of their sleep.. 
When they thanked the friend for driving well all the way, he smiled and said
  • "I love driving and while doing that job I am happy and keep others too happy!"

THE ESSENCE OF PRAYER DURING THE PUJA DAYS!

A man was reminded of his habit of forgetfulness with which he very much concurred..

"Yes! It's true that I forget in few minutes what I decided to remember.. It happens..

The other day, I was carrying some important documents in a packet with me as I traveled.. I decided that I should be careful there in not leaving the packet anywhere and for a while I was in my utmost attention.. But still it happened.. Not once but 11 times I simply forgot that I'm carrying an important packet and recollected in a matter of 2 hrs.. It's really funny!"


"Yes!  It's really funny with our memories.. 11 times you forgot in a span of 2 hrs!"

"Yeah! I remember even now, it's exactly 11 times and with the 11th time I was at home!"

"Are you sure exactly 11 times or.......?"

"What do you mean? My memory is not that bad.. I still remember all those 11 times, I forgot about the packet in my hand and was back to senses in a short time!"

That's how the man's talk went on!


It's a joke and looks funny here but the question is am I not too equally doing those funny pretensions in my life when it comes to speak out the Truth.. i.e when I have to call a Spade a Spade?

Yes.. I'll never do that in the right way.. Meaning.. I'll not call a Spade a Spade so easily..

Instead, 
  • I very quickly change the color of the Spade according to my liking, 
  • I change the shape of the Spade according to my wish, 
  • I change the size of the Spade according to my ego, 
  • I talk on the use of the Spade according to my own interests, 
  • I express concern over the danger of the Spade out of my fears, 
  • I try to glorify the Spade as I see its worth and 
  • I condemn it's presence when I dislike something about the Spade!
This drama in me eternally goes on and what comes out in the process I continuously believe as the right.. Sure doubly right! Not only leaving the matters there, my people too should concur with me, thus I should be on the throne in the eyes of every body and those who oppose heroically will almost be seen as the life time enemies thus dividing the entire Humanity eternally.. 

The truly sad part of my life!

No doubt, a 100% deviation from this behavior, is truly not possible for me to get off as the enchanting colors and fragrance smell of my doings never leave me so easily but equally why not I try doing my bit here with all sincerity and rise with a firm conviction that..

This Spade will never be called as any other except only the Spade to uphold the dignity of Humanity around me whereby all around me live and express with their own freedom in their life and never I surrender here and in the process whatever smaller life that would come to me from the world point of view will be accepted by me with all Grace as the Gift of God for the one life on this Earth known to me this moment!

As I worship Mahishashur Mardhini with all Devotion during these Puja Days, let me Pray to the Goddess with an ardent feeling in me to liberate me by slaying this very Demon of Ignorance in me as much as possible and thus Bestow Her Eternal Blessings on me!

LET ME SOON RESPOND TO THIS 'WAKE UP CALL!'

Indian Bloggers
The man of 30 yrs was loaded with full family and the associated responsibilities.. Exactly at that point of time, the Philosophical Quest in him prompted, 
  • "It needs bundles of energy and concentration for an enquiry into this line which will do the ultimate good to you.. You really have a 100% of all that.. Why not make a beginning now?"
  • "If I start doing that now for sure, my young family would suffer a lot.. Let all things in front be streamlined and stabilized first.. And that alone would be the right time for this activity!" 
He reciprocated with all coolness.. Life moved on.. He was soon a man of 40 yrs.. The Quest in him again reminded him of doing something at that stage..
  • "You are already a quarter less of your energies.. Why not make a beginning now at least?"
  • "If I start doing that now, what happens to my family and the associated responsibilities? Let first the crucial things be streamlined and stabilized.. Then, sure that would be the right time for this activity!" 
He reciprocated with all confidence.. Again life moved on and he was then the man of 50 yrs.. The Quest reminded him of at least doing something at that stage..
  • "You are already a half less of your energies.. Can you do something now?"
  • "If I start doing that, what happens to my expanded family and the associated responsibilities? Let first things be streamlined and stabilized.. Then, that would be the right time for this activity!" 
He reciprocated with an assured feeling.. That too happened and in no time, he was a man of 60.. The Quest again reminded him of doing at least something at that stage..
  • "You've just only a quarter of your earlier energies now.. Why not make a beginning now at least?"
  • "If I do that, what happens to my friends, my activities, the engagements and the hectic movements? Things are now getting streamlined and stabilized.. Let all that happen and that alone would be the right time for this activity!" 
He reciprocated firmly with all fullness.. That way, life never stopped and he was finally a man 75 yrs..
"My people appear to be no more my people.. They have their own interests and they are not caring for me.. I feel sorry for not listening to your advice.. Can I do something at least now?" he was pleading..
"How's that possible now? You've not sown the seed for it in the right time.. I'm weak now and I can't do much except streamline your day to day issues.. Pleading is of no use now!" said the Philosophical Quest in him with a weak smile..

"I don't understand what you say!" enquired the man..

"See! Philosophical Living for you never lied in separately living leaving off the ordained responsibilities with you in your life.. And that Philosophical Living forever is 


  • Nothing but caring for the other man too next to you in your life as life moved on without reducing a bit of care towards your own family and your people! 
That way done earlier, there would have been a greater meaning to your life at this stage.. But here, all along you believed in the fundamental wrong Viz.;
  • 'My own man is dear to me; never the other!' 
Without correcting that thinking in you at any time with the right Viz.;
  • 'My own man no doubt is dear to me but never at the cost of hating the other man!' 
And the very error accrued in your living over a long period time completely misguided you and left you sure a man of certain pain today.. I'm sorry, I can just do nothing for you at this stage!"

THE 'TIMELY HELP!'

Indian Bloggers
A man visited a Monastery, bowed to the Head and asked thus, 

“Reverend Sir! It is said in our Scriptures that God sends TIMELY HELP to every one of us.. I do not see such HELP around me at any time neither for me nor for someone.. Does it mean that the Scriptures say wrong?"

The Head smiled and silently asked him to follow to the terrace of the building from where the man could clearly see the outside main road with various vehicles busily speeding, the opposite shops and people moving around on their own works.. The Master asked the man to sit for a while and observe the happenings there..

  • As traffic moved on, a young man in haste cut across the road to cross the same but could not complete the move in time.. The next moment, he faced the wrath of the vehicle drivers who instantly shouted at him pointing out his glaring mistake and the young man had no go but to say  a big ‘Sorry’ to them and retreat.. 
  • Soon, a High School student made a mistake in respect of Traffic Rules.. An elder next to him instantly instructed on how to adhere to the very Rules from his own safety point of view and thus taught him  a 'Right Lesson' in time..
  • A very old man, was trying his best to cross the road.. A young lady saw him, immediately came forward, helped him and made him cross the road.. The vehicle drivers too waited patiently for them to walk across.. 
  • A child walking with his mother to a side, suddenly ran towards the traffic in a playful mode and the mother cried aloud.. A young man, shot across to the point, pulled the child in the nick of moment and brought him to the side.. The vehicle drivers taken a back by the happening, instantly became alert and a few without an exception advised the mother to be extra careful and thus moved on..

The Head looked at the man and asked, 

“Is your doubt clear now?” 

But the man looked at Him still with a doubt seen on his face.. The Great Man smiled and said, 

“Dear!  Here, you might have observed 4 incidents around you in a short time.. 

  • In the 1st case, the capable young man who thought he could do the job easily had to face the wrath of drivers on road when he erred and thus had learnt a lesson instantly.. Here the HELP from God was there to teach the RIGHT through the shouting from others..
  • In the 2nd case, the adolescent boy no doubt needed further guidance and support and that HELP had reached him in time thru' the elder next to him who rose to the occasion and taught him in time the RIGHT..
  • In the 3rd case, the very old man truly needed HELP but he never left what was possible for him and behind the sincerity got that instantly through the voluntary service of the young lady who felt proud of doing such noble RIGHT work.. Rest too, waited for her to complete the job and thus helped the man cross the road.. 
  • The last was totally a case of innocence and helplessness.. Here, the HELP was instantly by the side through the presence of mind of the young man.. Rest of the people on the road were all just in praise for the noble cause with their own advice for the mother and thus equally every one did their RIGHT part there..

Dear!  We all belong to God's Creation and this concept of HELPING EACH OTHER  for DOING THE RIGHT or GETTING THE RIGHT DONE is very much built into our very Creation.. Thus, the HELP from God is ever by our side both in correcting the erring person and assisting the obeying person towards the ULTIMATE RIGHT; no further doubt here!"

THE 'GREAT LEARNING' THAT NEVER SHOULD STOP!

The daughter residing in the distant place visited her parents' home after a long time with her 3-1/2 yr old son..  As soon as she arrived, the scene at her parent's home had a dramatic change..

The grand child became too noisy in no time and the grand father too was equally making great hung-ma in taking care of the boy.. The next day, the gentleman took his daughter and the Little One to the Toy Shop..

"He will be too fussy when he selects his favorite toy and later we don't buy for him.. Better avoid taking him towards the area where costly toys are kept!" 

Cautioned the daughter.. The grand Pa smiled and just took the boy to the same place where many costly colorful toys were on the display.. The boy in no time pulled out with great difficulty a very big Model Toy Car costing nothing less and said, 

"I want this!"

The Grand Pa without a murmur took him to the Cash Counter with the piece, got it billed and packed and handed over to the boy..

"Dad! He is pampered.. If you do like this, I can't manage him tomorrow.. And our precious monies are going on unimportant issues!" 

Protested the daughter..

"Dear! I already planned to cut down certain of my spending elsewhere and am saving those monies.. So we are well in control from finance point of view.." 

Assured the old man with a smile.. They came back home and opened up the package.. Soon the toy was the total attention of the boy and he was too inquisitive in experimenting with the same.. 



No doubt it was very interesting but the same interest in no time had its ultimate effect on the piece of show.. Soon a wheel was out, the steering wheel got jammed, a few scratches on the otherwise shining outer skin and a big dent at the back.. The car that way took a different Avatar in a short time..

"This's too much.. He just spoiled the costly one!" 

Complained the elderly lady..

"It's alright.. No problem.. But here, you really don't know the great learning that had gone into our boy's mind in the process!" 

Clarified the gentleman..

The boy was again active.. So to say too active.. He had many paints with him and he was soon into a Great Painting Session with the encouraging Grand Pa by the side.. 

As he was too playful and the Grand Pa was too supportive, that had its own ultimate effect once again.. In the form of the boy splashing the paints with him on the floor and on to the walls quite liberally.. 

The daughter was just too angry.. 

"Oh, God! He just spoiled the newly painted walls and the costly floor.. What a mess? Dear! Now, your Grandpa has to get the entire area cleaned / repainted.. What a work you had given him?" 

She shouted at the boy..

"Dear! Just leave him.. I know what he had done.. I'may clean a bit here but am not removing the marks in full.. They are going to be the remembrances of my Little One having visited this house once and played with his loving Grand Pa!" 

Said the man with a smile..

"Dad!  You may tell all this but at the back you are actually pampering the boy beyond.. Tomorrow, he will quote this and will not listen to me.. What good are we doing here to our child ultimately?"

The daughter asked.. The dad smiled and said, 

"Dear! Just tell me one thing.. What are you young people doing in the Weekends after a Week's hard work?  Are you not unwinding totally during that time?  And by doing all that, your minds are becoming fresh to take up all that stress and strain of the coming Week.. 

Here, our boy too once in a way needs to get himself off on a bigger scale from the monotonous discipline you parents are continuously imposing on him.. That way, when he comes to me, he too is unwinding himself thru' this pampering for a short period and goes back with a total happiness within himself.. It's all part of a Great Learning here.. Tell me.. Should we not allow him too like you all to do this for his own ultimate good?"

THE 'PARALLEL' ART OF LIVING!


A smart man was into a new Business.. A totally new Business, and totally in a Novel Way.. 
  • “Our Product is a Unique Piece of........ on Earth!  You visit us at our Place and experience the difference…. You'll agree to what we say!” 
Was the bold Caption of an Advertisement suddenly seen everywhere for a while.. And equally it happens as on a fine day, a few people decided to visit the place and oversee the make of the Product to assess the Maker's Assertion!

As the  men and women entered the Venue, they were greeted with all warmth and were soon lead to a Central place.. There, the Entry Point carried two distinct Boards.. 
  • The first had a few slogans handwritten with beautiful color pens and chalks,
  • The second had a few humorous cartoons imprinted saying how ‘Good’ many times was never talked of and ‘Nice' alone stressed! 
There the bottom most Caption very much attracted the Visitors..

‘We've totally freed ourselves from this non sense…. 'Nice' is OK but not at the cost of 'Good!’

People moved further an
d at the entrance they were lead to a Special Room wherein a certain History and Geography were in front of them.. Meaning..
  • The History of the Product describing how the same was used in ancient times and patronized by the famous people of the world, through beautiful sketches and paintings.. 
  • And the Geography talking of the places of the world where the ingredients were grown/available from Nature, the quality of the same depending on the place etc etc..
After the Brief, they were led to a Hall with a few neatly arranged chairs and tables from where sitting under the centuries old fans with the cool breeze from top, the Visitors in a relaxing way observed the Makers of the Product at a distance in glass cubicles.. Busy in their own ways..
  • A few smiling and singing, 
  • One dancing in his own style and moving the items around, 
  • A man looking intently through a glass into a process and adjusting a certain mechanism and 
  • A few moving busily around..
All in their special Attires.. Clean in Looks.. With their own Caps.. The Scene looking totally a category of its own.. And above all.. 
  • The Head clearly seen at distance standing and over seeing the activities going around!
The Scene no doubt,  reflected the true quality possible on earth when attention was paid, patience practiced, sincerity expressed and hard work followed!

Finally, the people were led out thru' serene Outlet Passage with a warm send off by the Staff and all the Visitors soon were home bound with every one carrying a great value and importance to the Product in their minds..

After a while on the D-day, the Product was launched into the Market, the sales in no time picked up and soon touched the skies with continuous profits flowing in..  No need to say further that the Owner in a short time happened to be the talk of the town and subsequently becoming a well-to-do Personality around..

Time never waits, life went on thus and the Owner soon became old.. And finally there was a day when all that precious knowledge had to be passed on to his only son who had to take over the Business..

The Owner described all the relevant procedures, processes, presentations, descriptions etc to his son and said in the end, 

“Dear! Continue all these as 'They Are' and you will shine the best in this business with your customers by your side for ever!"

The son with all curiosity asked, 

"Dad!  This's is fine.. But you've not told me the Superiority of the Product by itself in respect to its Content and Usefulness!"

The dad smiled and said in a softer tone, 

"That's a secret here and promise me never to disclose this to any one at any time in your life..

Actually, our Product in no way is truly Superior to all those available in Market at much cheaper price and definitely I can say that it is inferior when compared to the similar ancient Products that were with us once upon a time! 

Again, as the background of the Product could never be changed, to get good business out of the same, I tried a lot improving its presentation to people and it just clicked here in a great Way.. And the success you are seeing around soon followed!

Further you may not believe..The strange part of this entire drama is..

Even the people working with us presently too don't know this background but sincerely believe to this day that our Product is Really Superior by Itself!”

THE OTHER 'TEN WONDERS' OF THE WORLD!

Indian Bloggers
(Here, the meaning of the Amateur as given in the Free Online Dictionary is taken as one lacking the skill of a Professional..)
  • The Expert forever does a single Work of his/her Expertise alone and none else.. The careless Amateur, instead talks proudly of everything around and claims of doing many such works just like that..
  • The Expert is never freely available and it's a joke if some one says so.. The negligent Amateur, instead is seen everywhere around all the time ever promising the moon which never would become a reality..
  • The Expert hardly talks at Work as he/she ever concentrates.. The no experienced Amateur instead, will have too many stories to tell during the same time without a single exception..
  • The Expert no doubt will have sound sleep every night without a say.. The adamant Amateur, instead struggles there day after day as that requirement would have already been partly fulfilled during the day..
  • The Expert rarely gets into the details of his/her payments at Work.. The easy going Amateur instead, never leaves the matters there, probes and investigates endlessly to find out why so much alone is paid..
  • The Expert invariably gets a call from a Prospective Customer while at Work.. The relaxing Amateur too sure gets one like that but invariably from a troubled Customer alone.. 
  • The Resume of an Expert would forever be on the finger tips of the prospective Employers.. No doubt, that of an never learning Amateur would neatly be filed as a number of paper prints in those files alone which soon would be collecting tons of dust..
  • The family members of the Expert naturally become capable as he/she equally imparts them the true meaning to all learning and they ever carry respect for their Head.. Here, the members of the seasoned Amateur have no go and still may become so but only surely after writing off their Head.. 
  • Even God gives Way for an Expert allowing him/her continue doing his/her Work.. The head strong Amateur, instead is sure seen as the number one obstacle everywhere around..
  • Such an Expert at his/her Work is always a Great Wonder in Nature.. Here, a take easy attitude Amateur too is a wonder but exactly for the opposite reason!

THE OFT FORGOTTEN 'SPECIAL GIFTS' WITH ME!

Indian Bloggers

"How many times I told you all to be disciplined and take care well in advance.. You never listen to me.. I'm truly the man sitting here with tons of experience in life, having read in and out of life and forever knowing the right and wrong.. You here never care for my suggestions in spite myself knowing totally what is what but are taking your own decisions.. What else I can say here? As stated in our Great Epics, all can't get the depth of this understanding and foolishness in the world prevails forever!"

"We understand that we are less experienced and are not able to get in and out of everything as you could do.. But we too have our ambitions and expressions.. Why don't you see this point while you talk like this? After all, can't you be sympathetic to our wrong doings too along with your teaching?"

"What dear, Are you telling an old man that too seasoned one on how to cough? Don't tell me how I should behave.. Better you all streamline your talking first!"

"Yeah! What all you say here, is to just listen to every bit of yours and sincerely follow that.. Then what is called our life? Don't we too have our own ambitions?" 


"Enough.. I don't want to listen to anything further in this..Your behaviors are beyond..."

"That's not fair.. You take all reigns into your hands and talk..."

"I say, don't point out me.. I did so much for all of you.."

"And you have no patience here... We just wanted... But you go on talking......"

"Hello! I say.. You are exceeding the limits.. I don't want to talk any more on this.. I'm going!"


Saying thus, the man totally in a fit of rage left the place angrily murmuring within himself cursing almost aloud the Opponents all along as he drove his car fast till he noticed the fuel at the Reserve Level.. Still raging in anger, he speed-ed up to the nearest Gas Station, positioned the car and as the Service Boy came up in front of him, said aloud without looking at him..

"Premium Petrol Tankful!"

The Service Boy was still standing there.. The man's anger shot up.. He madly shouted, 

"Hi! I already said Tankful Premium Petrol.. What else do you want?  Can't you do the job told to you?"

Saying thus, as he turned towards the boy for the delay and looked at him, he had instantly seen the Service Boy with a cheerful smile and with great obedience signaling to him thru' his hand movements confirming the tank to be filled full simultaneously showing the Petrol Outlet and further saw him getting into his job..


There was an instant Message from the Almighty from Above..

"These Precious Gifts like Talking,Hearing, Grasping and Understanding etc are specially given to you by Me to enable you listen patiently to others who are not up to your level, understand them and advise them with compassion on what is possible for them for their good.. 

Leaving all that Sacred Task that is in front of you, why are you here taking the reigns into your hands out of a proud feeling and ruling the people by your side though these very Gifted Capacities of yours?"

THE EVER BLOSSOMING UNIQUE SMILE!

Indian Bloggers
### That day, I was at my friend's house in the early morning hrs after my usual morning walk.. His Little daughter studying First Grade who was already up by that time and active suddenly brought all her School Certificates she got till then and was showing to me.. I carefully counted the Certificates one by one, smiled at her patting on her back and said, “Oh! You already have 6 Certificates of your own.. Great!”

The Little One, wide eyed exclaimed, “No, I've one more Certificate of mine!” 

I asked with all curiousness, “What's that?” 

The child replied with a cute smile showing up all her innocence, “It's my Birth Certificate!  But dad always keeps it with himself and never gives me!”

### After a while, his 3 yr old son too joined us for a while.. Suddenly a mouse ran fast in front of us and escaped into a hole in the wall.. The boy with all curiosity was looking at the hole.. I smiled and said, "Do you know? It's a mouse!" 

The boy in no time exclaimed with a big smile.. "That's not the mouse.. The mouse is on the table near the Comp in my dad's room!"

### I was soon back home.. There was a need to buy some items and I had to catch 10 AM bus to go the Shopping Point located in the near by Mall for the purchase.. Accordingly I traveled, got down the bus and as I was walking into the Mall Area, a Scooterist who appeared to be working in the Mall but already late for his work was seen coming very fast on his vehicle to park his scooter in the parking zone.. In the process, he had to pass through the same Security Barrier put up for the Customers' vehicles coming in.. 

As I was observing the young man on the two-wheeler, he waved from distance to his friend at the gate indicating that he was already late and dashed through without coming down in speed across the barrier and in seconds crossed the metal pole just in time raised for him by his friend, the young gate keeper with few centimeters of clearance above the helmet, went to the Parking Area and parked his vehicle.. The next moment he was out of sight from there as he must have gone to his work spot but my heart beating heard louder continued with me as I imagined the 'perfect balanced act' performed by the 2 young men never leaving exchange of smiles between them and equally smiling at me in the process..

### I finished my work and was returning home..The bus was not crowded and I had my seat.. At the next stop, a young lady with her kid of 3 years in her arms and his school bag at the back got into the bus and simply stood in front side of the bus holding the bar next to her politely refusing a seat offered by a person saying that it was just a 2 stop travel.. 

She in the process took out her purse from her hand bag, appeared giving the exact change for the ticket, kept the ticket back in her purse, folded the same and kept it in her hand bag all the time holding the bar firmly around one arm with the child in the other.. Further, she was continuously listening and talking softly to her child who was communicating to her his own school experiences of the day in between praising the boy for the 'Great Little Work' done for the day.. The journey continued thus for about 10 minutes, her stop came up and she, with all elegance and care, got down the bus and headed homewards.. So much Complex Work handled so well without a single complaint outward or a remorse feeling within all along with a smile on her face..

As I got down the bus at my next stop and moved towards my destination, a beautiful feeling had overtaken me in no time with cheers filled in my heart when I remembered the day's Events one by one at the back of 

The Ever Blossoming Unique Smile

seen around..

And whenever I happen to see such a smile by my side let that be either from an innocent Child or an active young Personality, the next moment I simply forget all of my own problems that were pestering me till then for a while and respond with an equal smile at the back of an unknown happiness within me!"

THE REAL MEANINGFUL LIFE!

Indian Bloggers
An elderly gentleman was living in a joint family of his children along with their families.. It was really a big and happy family.. Every one was educated and industrious and the children were well disciplined..

But unfortunately, the elderly man was not a happy man all the while.. He was often complaining that the younger members of the family all the time were not so friendly with him, always busy in their own works, not paying attention to him many times, sometimes feeling a little uncomfortable with his nearness etc..etc..

He was thus sad..

As he met his old friend in a Park one evening, he could no longer control and keep the problem to himself and vented out the anarchy at home including the sad part of it.. How he was sidelined!

His friend happened to be a great introvert.. He was truly a problem solver and was a great success in life.. He understood his friend’s problem and wanted to give him a piece of advice.. He said..

“See my dear, we are aged and we have gone thru’ the many turmoil of life, a mixture of pleasures and pains.. Please tell me, did we not have tough life in our younger responsible days? In those days, we too were desperate and equal number of times we too were showing our disgust and used to vent out our feelings.. So, this is a very much natural happening in these instances..” 


Saying thus, he paused for a while.. The elderly man was looking at his friend keenly.. The friend further continued..

“The youngsters of your family are well educated, have steady jobs, work hard and thus are truly the responsible people.. Here, they have to take care of their children’s up bringing and all are totally involved in their duties thus.. In fact the reality is that the situation in your family needs lots of attention, energies, strengths and finances and beyond this many sleepless nights added too.. 
All your people have determined to do this unique task together for the welfare of the family and in this context only, everyone is running round with no time to breath.. 

Their journeys in life are like sailing ships on seas with sails unfurled... Their directions depend on winds blowing, they are in the middle of waters and they have to constantly steer the ships to reach ultimately the shore safely.. This is the present great task with these busy young men and women around you.. 

Compared to all this bustle, our lives are now simply devoid of all this turmoil except our age related health ailments.. We have safely traveled, almost are near to shores, in calm waters, almost furled our sails and thus are free from the direction of winds and peaceful on home front issues.. 


In such a situation, by being free and by staying at home, we can definitely help these coming up families in general with our small energies such as taking care of the young kids in time, being helpful with saved finances where required but not in a wasteful way and as a head in general for advising and guiding on trivial issues.. This task is very much in front of us at this point of time in which we can actively involve.. 

Strangely leaving all this, how can we find fault with our own people for not showing attention and asking for the same?  Do we really need anything like this?" 

While parting, the friend smiled and whispered in his ears..


"More or less, we have lived our lives the best, dear; But the young are going thru' this process presently.. Tell me, should we not help these youngsters now at this stage?  In fact, the real Peace is with us  only when we sincerely do this job totally with all honesty but nothing less of it any time!"
