LIFE WITHOUT INTERNET.. A BOON OR A BANE?


Two works around us continuously go on and in Sanskrit they are termed as 'Nitya Karma' and 'Ni-Nitya Karma' meaning the 'Essential Works' and the 'Non Essential works'.. And sure, in the absence of active Internet, the Essential Works of ours which very much depend on the Net would instantly come to a grinding halt.. 

Here we really become helpless as the modern tempo around, the speed of certain actions and the quick connections existing would be zeroed down instantly and seen in that way, our life truly becomes miserable.. So we should never expect great things to happen in the real absence of modern high speed Internet.. Seen thus, let us actively work together supporting the scientific temper behind it's existence and its future growth..  

Again seen from the point of view of human touch and human interaction, Internet with us serves as the instant tool greatly helping us cutting down the distances and other difficulties of physically reaching the remote places of the world and thus keeps our relations with our families, friends and all the other acquaintances intact which in fact is in the right direction of true human development..

But seen at the other side of too much use of the Non Essential part of it, we should sure come to attention, start teaching and guiding our children to leave that part of it as much as possible except for the limited relaxation purposes as this facility truly serves no great purpose when thus we glue our selves hrs together to our Laptops, Smart Phones and other latest Electronic Gadgets in the field totally forgetting our own required necessary interaction with Mother Nature and the our inter personal touch with fellow humans for a true Inner Personality Development..

This part of our very much forgotten life no doubt is a curse on humans with the advancement of high speed Internet and the related modern gadgets and here alone we would be truly freed when the Internet for a while gets off from us..

Looking back to my own experiences, there were few occasions in my life which are truly worthy of remembrance when the Internet was totally unavailable with no mobile connections too for few hrs..

One such instance was during our trip to Canada as we drove thru' the gigantic Rocky Mountains from Baniff National Park to Jasper National Park for about 3 hrs in the evening hrs with huge sheets of blue waters surrounded by snow clad mountains with no major settlements noticed all along equally with not much vehicular traffic seen on the road..




During that period, we 8 people in our vehicle were in total communication with the Nature around in its original state, freely exchanging own inner feelings and thus were totally together as a Unique Human Expression where Man and Nature appeared join in perfect union..


Such beautiful interaction with Mother Nature could be experienced for those 3 hrs just because all were freed from their gadgets and phones for those hrs without a say..

The next time, when we visited Ysoemite National Park in US where wireless life is ever forced out with




limited Internet facilities, our stay at the place was max towards the exploration of beauty of Nature around..


The third time on our visit to Hawaii Islands, on our return to Airport from Haleakala National Park we had to travel for about 2 hrs on the shorter Route thru' the back side of the National Park where except for a tarred road that too of an ordinary narrow one the rest was Nature as is with sea waters on one side,



tall mountains on the other side backed by spread of greenery all round with no wireless communication to the virtual world.. The journey was truly breath taking with such a natural beauty around which would have been never be enjoyed in full if active Wi-Fi would have distracted us in that time.. Truly a blessing in disguise..

BOOK KNOWLEDGE Vs THE PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE!

### It was the huge workshop in the premises of the Heavy Industry.. A Unit had to be installed on a platform where the fixing was found to be a little complicated as the entrance was narrow and had a sizable twist..

The young Workman was worried.. 

  • "To fix this Unit at the back, I don't have any access.. How to reach to that much depth, install the Unit and tighten the bolts? There's no go, I should design a special tool for this and am sure, if I put in a good effort it comes out as a sophisticated tool and will be useful in future in all such instances.. Let me do it.. It's a chance to show my capabilities.. Let me brush up a bit of my Tool Design knowledge for a while.." 
The Senior Workman was all cool..

  • He quickly enquired about the matter, directed the young man to bring the Unit, himself sat in a comfortable position at a height, slowly introduced the Unit into the tunnel like space positioning it on it's seating area, introduced a spanner into the duct and tightened the 4 mounting bolts with his experienced hands! 
### The Furnace in the Metal Industry was very hot.. The flame was bright, white in color and was glowing like anything simultaneously throwing out a lot of heat..

The young Technician was worried.. 
  • "At this point of time, I should take the temperature of the flame.. This Instrument appears sleek and how can take it near the flame and position it there? I should carefully do it.. I'll first read the Dos and Don'ts in this context, follow them meticulously with necessary precautions and then only go near to the Furnace.." 
The Senior Technician was all cool..

  • He noticed the young man's effort, signaled to him to stop that and said, "Note down the temperature I tell.. Now the flame is steady.. It's......deg C... The variation is just + or -..... deg C.... Yes! The color of the flame very much confirms that right temp required for us... Make ready the Items to be heated!" 
### It was a huge Library in the Central Area.. A Member entered and requested help for locating 2 books for borrowing purpose..

The young man at the Desk was worried..

  • He quickly brushed up his Learning, caught hold of the Index Nos for the books and straight headed to the related Shelves but found them not there.. He was in certain confusion when he equally found the status of the 2 books as not issued.. 
The Senior there was all cool..
  • He quickly enquired the matter, looked at his watch and said to the Assistant, "Go straight to the end, turn right, go to that end and search in the last Rack at the corner on the top shelf.. The first book will be there.. Again, do the same exact the opposite end, the second book will be there.. They are the places where the Regular Readers usually hide their favorite books!" 
The Assistant searched and the first book was just in the place his Senior told.. But not the second book.. When reported the matter, the Senior Man smiled and said,
  • "OK! Then tell the Member that it's with the visitor sitting in the corner to the right of the second Reading Table.. I think he had not yet left the place..The man is tall, thin, fair in color with thick spectacles.. The Member can request that gentleman in case he needs the book very badly!"

THE 'ONE TIME SOLUTION' FOR MANY OF OUR 'HUMAN' PROBLEMS!


A young man was travelling in a city bus.. At a stop, a busy individual got into the bus with a live call on his mobile phone.. He sat in front of the young man and started talking and laughing aloud on the phone instantly attracting the attention of other passengers in the bus.. 
  • The talk was quite loud and continuous with bursts of laughter in between causing disturbance to others.. As the bus conductor approached him for issue of the ticket, the man without stopping his talk, signaled to him on his destination and gave a Note.. Murmuring in himself, the conductor issued his ticket and moved on..
  • The loud talk and laughter continued for 5 mts but to the astonishment of every one around all of a sudden, it changed to smiles with a lowered intensity but continued.. Another 5 mts passed thus.. 
  • Suddenly, every one around heard him saying ‘Hello…. Hello…. Hello….’ and it looked the party on the other side had disconnected the call! 
  • The man still continued talking in himself in a further reduced tone.. Subsequently, he was found muttering within and in the end was seen cursing the man who was on the phone at the other end a few minutes back.. 
In another 5 mts, the man's stop arrived, he got down from the bus and slowly disappeared from the scene with his head totally bent down!

Seeing the incident the young man thought, 


“How nice it would have been had this man proceeded his talk knowing clearly well in the situation
  • His own requirement, 
  • The extent to which the person at the other end of phone was really interested in the interaction and 
  • How people around him were inconvenienced in that process! 
If I really want to live happily in this world, it's ever my duty to see that 
  • I interact exact to the requirement in a situation to the max extent possible and
  • I carry on this interaction to the extent the other party permits with certain cool and beyond just manage the situation for the completion of work.. In the process,
  • I'll take care to see that other people around me who are not a party to this action are never inconvenienced or put to trouble! 
  • In addition, let me forego a few of my own assets and facilities too in a limited way here to help control the activities and create certain peace around..
And ultimately, this discipline alone is going to be ideal for me at any point of time in my life as in such a scenario, none can really point me out and nothing can truly affect me as here, I would be truly identifying myself with my 'Original' as is to the best of my knowledge!”

Concurring with the young man's thoughts, Slokas 23 and 24, Chapter 2 of Srimad Bhagavad Gita were heard being recited melodiously on the distant loud speakers with the meaning explained in parallel.. 

'Nainam chindanti sasrtani nainam dahati pavakah
nacainam kledayanty apo na sosayati marutah
achhedyo yam adahyo yam akledyo sosya evaca
nityhsarva gatah sthanur acalo yam sanatanah!'

'Weapons cannot harm, fire cannot burn, water cannot wet, wind cannot dry up the Soul.. It is (just) indestructible, incombustible, insoluble and unwitherable, eternal, all-pervading, immovable and primordial!'

'ONE' TRUTH; 'N' INTERPRETATIONS!


“Awake! You are carrying certain constant tension within you and silently suffering in your life even though you appear happy and cheerful outward.. This is because you are not attentive all along and somewhere neglecting your ordained duties..
  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 
Thus saying, the Master concluded His speech.. All who attended the speech were greatly inspired by the Revelations made and the Advice given by the Great Man..

“Truly wonderful and highly inspiring speech.. 
The Master says,

  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

What great guidelines the Master had given here.. Suddenly, I feel so calm and relaxed.. I should some how attend tomorrow's Program too.. Let me see.. Oh! It's already late.. Have to go now.. See you then, bye!”

Saying thus, a man bid bye to his friend and left the place in a great hurry.. 


The friend thought,

“Of late I know, I'm not taking care of my health and a little reckless in maintaining the same.. 
The Master says,

  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

From tomorrow, I'll follow a rigorous discipline.. No more long Saturday hangouts and too many Sunday feastings.. Instead good food, sufficient exercise and reasonable rest for more number of days.. And this's going to be my discipline in life here afterwards!” 

The man who was sitting next to him felt,

“I know I'm careless in respect of my Job and Career Growth.. 
The Master says,

  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

Seen this way, forever I'm going to remain at working level only! Today’s speech is truly an Eye Opener.. Here after, I’ll take care of my job with attention; the most important thing to do in my life..” 

One of the front benches pondered,

“Am I performing my duties correctly in respect of my finances and my family welfare? 
Some people indicated indirectly that I am careless here..The Master says,

  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

From tomorrow, my first care and attention is in this direction only.. Let me firmly say 'NO' to any deviation here!” 

An Introvert in the audience thought,


“All the while I was finding fault with my friend.. The Master says,

  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

When I can't truly love my friend and create a confidence in him, what a personality am I? Tomorrow, I am the first to open my heart with him and try wash off my ill doings.. Further, I'll strictly discipline myself never to do such mistake in my life hereafter..”

A deep Thinker who attended the Program in search of a permanent solution for the unrest within firmed up,

“I was thinking all these days that I'm sincerely doing my duties in my life.. The Master says,


  • Be attentive, care for your duties and feel happy & safe in your life!” 

Am I truly 'Rising' in life? I should do something beyond the regular here and try taking care of the needy more with my resources, help them in their life for betterment and thus grow myself truly in the Spiritual line.. Then alone, I would be free from these eternal haunting sorrows of my life.. And this's going to be my discipline in life here afterwards!”

THE ENCHANTING MUSICAL NOTES(?)


The gentleman staying abroad for many years was on a short visit to his Native Place and was welcomed with all warmth by his close friend at his Home for the stay..

“Welcome dear! Happy to see you here after so many years.. How are you? How's the family? What are the children doing? You should have come with the family.. We would've spent some nice time together and would have visited........

OK! Leave all that.. You must have got tired of flight delay, jet lag and the last 2 hr Road Travel.. Please freshen up, we'll have Lunch and you can rest for a while till evening.. We've some works to do, will be out for few hrs and would be back by evening.. And, this is your room.. Relax in this time and feel fresh by evening..

I forgot to tell you.. Please keep the windows closed.. We keep the front door open with the curtains pulled in so that cool air comes from inside.. Anyhow, this is winter so no fan is required.. Else you can never rest peacefully.. The noises of people around disturb you continuously..

We've this one problem in this house.. We should have checked well before buying it… The Market is next to this house.. The continuous conversations, screaming, shoutings and all those sounds…………. We made a life time mistake here..”


The gentleman soon had a small lunch with the friend's family, bid bye to them and went to bed to relax.. But the silence in the house never allowed him to fall asleep and kept him awake as he was accustomed to hear certain constant sounds while in abroad during his usual week end afternoon naps such as..
  • The sounds of starting, water splashing, whipping, again water splashing etc for almost half an hr of the Washing Machine.. 
  • The sounds of starting followed by the constant rotation sound and finally the machine coming to a halt making a screeching noise after some 20 minutes of the Dryer.. 
  • The continuous water sprinkling sounds followed by jets of water hitting the vessels and repeating the same for another half hr approx of Dish Washer.. 
  • A big start of motors followed by a continuous air blow sound of AC plant.. 
  • A continuous humming motor sound of the Air Humidifier.. 
  • Certain sharp conversational sounds and some Western Music on TV.. 
As those familiar sound were truly missing at that moment, he could no more lay down on the bed, got up and opened the windows facing the Market Area.. Instantly, certain cool breeze started blowing in from that side too making him feel refreshed followed by the sounds of continuous outside conversations..
  • “Sir! I can’t sell this for the price you asked for.. If I start doing that, what money can I take home and feed my family?” 
  • “Madam, these are the fresh items arrived just now.. You are almost the first buyer here..” 
  • “Give me Do Chai today.. My friend is here.. He has come after a long time..” 
  • “Let’s have a break.. Are you not hungry a little? Let’s have our favorite Chat at..” 
  • “It’s continuous holidays for schools for 3 days.. My daughter wanted to see the Market and buy something for herself..” 
  • “Ok! Dear! I'm going now.. Please, come home tomorrow.. I‘ll show you some of the……” 
Suddenly, it was an experience a totally different world.. No.. No.. Surely not the new.. A quite familiar one only not experienced for a long time.. May be noisy sounds that too not of less intensity but when felt deep in heart they were highly welcome, sweet, pleasant and cool on ears as if certain Enchanting Classical Music was being played on an old Gramophone Record Player.. 

In no time, the gentleman found himself highly relaxed, was soon back to his bed with all those sweet voices and familiar sounds pouring into his ears as Soothing Well Known Musical Notes and in no time went into deep sleep for few hrs forgetting all that strain of his travel till he was woken by the sharp tone of his friend abruptly..

“Oh! you opened and forgot to close the windows? I wonder, how could you sleep so well with so many noises around? I'm sorry for the trouble..

We've this one problem in this house.. We should have checked well before buying it… The Market is next to this house.. The continuous conversations, screaming, shoutings and all those sounds…………. We made a life time mistake here..

OK, we are back now.. Please freshen up and we'll visit……..”

THE REAL FIRST CRUSH IN MY LIFE.. MY QUIRKY FRIEND!



Infatuation may be the way of youth and that way as I remember, the 
True First Crush
in my life never came up till I attained mid thirties with the max family responsibilities attached and all of a sudden for the 
First Time 
am made to experience the direct contact with this 
Single Quirky Friend..

In the early years of my life, I remember I heard a lot about my this quirky friend and
read many stories in connection with that and the associated quirkiness as
some alone could keep this life time friendship and
some couldn't do so and ultimately became the simple acquaintances therein
as they weren't able to withstand this friend's quirkiness beyond a limit..

Soon I had developed a great Crush on this quirky Friend and
initially it looked nice and easy to handle the situation
but as time passed, this friend of mine became too tough and truly quirky and 
because of that, a few times I got into real crisis situations to deal with..

A few easy going people advised me not to go too close there
as the situation makes one eternally run round with no cool in their life,
but in my heart, a certain drive
prompted me not to leave this friendship whatever may be the outcome but
equally advised me that since I have a body to live which needed to be safeguarded for reasons unknown, 
the quirkiness might expose me to direct damages if not on guard and so
the middle path appeared truly safe for me where in the situation would become 
a Win-Win as I live thru' my life with a min cool..

Thus I firmed up a 100% in my mind to manage the issues in front on which I already committed without 
getting into additional new commitments 
and decided to move on in my life with this truly
FIRST CRUSH QUIRKY FRIEND 
of my life Viz., 
THE HONESTY IN ME
and the ever close Companion there in.. 
THE ASSOCIATED PEACE WITH ME 
and never leave their company!

THE 'TWO BEST' NAVIGATIONAL APPROACHES OF OUR LIFE!


An Ardent Devotee once approached a Great Saint in an Ashram, bowed to Him and said,

“Reverend Sir! Day and night, I constantly see many uncertainties around me ready to strike at any moment as I live thru' my life..

In spite of myself Navigating thru' my life with all care and attention, a particular uncertainty suddenly surfaces in front and asks a question,
  • ‘Have you taken care of me in the present situation?’ 
And here, I do not have a 100% answer to that as my care in that situation appears to be limited and with that limited entity as I proceed, the next uncertainty is seen in the queue with the same question..

Thus I find no way to be at Peace in my life at any point of time.. Unable to do anything here, when I start listing out these uncertainties, to my surprise I find the list really endless!

I am thus caught in my life and constantly live with the despair that springs up out of this turmoil.. Is there a solution for me?"


The Saint said,

"Dear! You can really do nothing in respect of this phenomenon of the Universe except continue doing your activities with all sincerity to the best known to you and not waste your energies with the futile attempts of dominating the Universe out of your inherent fears..

Here you may utilize your Navigation Skills in the direction of either
  • Continuously exploring the vast unknown around you through that known to you thereby doing a yeoman Service to the world at large 
or
  • Surrendering to the Almighty with a great devotion merging yourself with the infinite unknown within with an offer of a sincere Prayer which goes thus.. 
'You alone can lead me amidst this Ocean of turmoil and none else in the world.. I humbly keep up my Navigation Sails and steer my ship of life in the Path of Dharma as known to me at this moment.. I sincerely Pray to you to Show me the Light, Guide me and Take me out of this Ocean safely and thus make me ever Peaceful in my life.. I hereby surrender to You in Total!’

By living thru' one of these disciplines alone, you will truly find a solution to your present confusion thus paving way for the Ultimate Peace in you!"

THE 'TRUE IMPACT' ON THE FUTURE PERSONALITY!


The little boy was too demanding..

“I want a big car and I want 10 small cars. I want all now!”

The mom said,

“Why do you want so many cars? It’s too costly to buy like that!”

“No. I want!”

The mom said "Nothing doing!" and the child started crying.

“OK! This time it's allowed. One big car and only 2 small cars. We don't have so much money. Tomorrow we'll go to your Toy Shop!"

she consoled the boy and he slept for the day.

As promised, the mom took the boy to the shop the next day and they were soon lead to the place where different car model toys were kept on the display..

The moment the boy saw different colors and different sized cars, he was on to them, picked up his favorite models, the mom paid the bill, got them packed and they returned home.

The child was too happy. He got what he wanted! Soon the pack was opened and the child had gone beyond his excitement.




“Come.. Let’s play!”

The mom sat with him and in no time, the play was ON and went into full swing joined with his other toys.

The little boy was moving one of the small cars too fast. He shouted, 

“The car is jumping across the River. See!”

Saying thus, he moved the car too fast back and forth, it suddenly went off his hand and fell at a distance..

“No…. No…. No....”

Thus saying aloud, he picked up the metal car and threw it out of an instant anger within having failed in his 'Mission Impossible!'

As the mom was picking up other toys from ground a little away, the metal car straight away flew and hit her on her forehead. The impact of the child's throw was quite enough to cut her forehead skin a bit deep and leave her profusely bleeding..

She instantly got stunned with what happened, the lady of 30 who was all the time proud of her slim figure and beauty had a greater impact on her psyche as she got injured at the same place where the beauty really mattered.

She suddenly became wild, crying aloud pushed the child away from her with a certain force and was helpless for a while. No doubt, the injury needed immediate attention as the cut was deep. A medium size cut on one side of the forehead was clearly seen after the wound was washed. It would definitely be seen as black mark for months and months and in case if it stays like that for a life time?

She was instantly depressed with those thoughts and became sad but equally could do nothing in the situation.

But as the First Aid was given, she was told that the scar would appear for a while but ultimately would merge with skin in course of time. And for some time she had to put up with the mark and the time of healing might be a few months, she was told.

The child got stunned. He started crying. His Mom’s crying had its own impact on his Psyche too.. He could not bear that. He became totally silent with his Mother’s mood off.

Soon, the mom recovered. Whatever be it.The child knew nothing. It was not his fault. But it was the right time that he be taught the 'Right' without an exception. It was a little astonishing for other members of the family, as she in no time smiled at her boy, took him nearer and started teaching him the ‘Good Play’ while dealing with his toys in future.

“Dear! Here afterwards you'll not throw things as you like. People do no like it. From now on wards, I am going to see a nice child playing with toys and keeping them in order. Is that Okay?"

she asked the boy.

No doubt, that was the biggest boon for the child right at that moment and instantly he was overjoyed with his Mom’s mood back. He firmly nodded his head in affirmation and turned towards her extending his tiny hands. The mom instantly became emotional, took him closer, showered her endless kisses on the boy and hugged him tight!

The boy never knew the agony of his mother at that instant, forgot all that the next moment and further may not be remembering the same as he grows up but the incident and the mom's timely counselling indirectly brought an instant positive impact on his subconscious mind to see that he would never behave in a wild way at any point of time in his coming up adult life there by paving way for the growth of one of the

THE 'SACRED SONG' AT WORK PLACE..

8 hrs of Work brings in the Remuneration immediately 
But not for long unless soon it's coupled with 
More hrs at Work and Working Smart 
To keep up the Quality/Schedules followed by a 
Certain Customer Satisfaction
Which too has its own limits till
One starts Performing and Retains both 
The Customers and Profits of the Company, 
Thus Truly Grows in Profession and 
Continues to perform at Senior Levels to bring in 
More Customers/Orders and 
The associated Growth to the Company!

The above Sequence alone brings in the Appreciation, 
Supports a Resume that speaks itself subsequently and not me 
and creates a Chain of Bosses/Employers around who come 

To Really Know Me! 

This Performance
Starts with certain gifts of God which are exclusively given to me,
Is built through Qualifications and Training I acquire,
Stabilizes through my Hard Work,
Qualifies through my Devotion at Work and
Sustains only when the Almighty grants me 2 Boons Viz,

A Good Physical and Mental Health,

A Stable Customer demand and a Chance to take over the nearby areas for my Employer!

What is feasible I should do; 
In respect of the rest, I should accept 
The Status quo and 
Pray to God for continuance of the Precious Entities
in front of me and thus live forever with 

A Positive Outlook!

THE 'EVER MISSING TONIC' OF OUR LIFE!

The Right Moment
was just in front of the man.. And no doubt 
That Very Moment
could have been sure filled with 
A Noble Thought, Word and Action 
wherein
The Thought 
could have 
Wished Good 
for the other Man, 
The Word 
could have 
Brought Cheers 
to the other Man and 
The Action
could have 
Straightaway Helped 
the other Man! 

But the
Hidden Hurt Within
squarely prevented the man from doing that whereby 
The Thought
became
A Planned One
to 
Manage
the situation, 
The Word 
came out as 
Lip Sympathy
followed by a mild 
Deceptive Criticism
and 
The Action 
surfaced as a simple 
A Wash off
where one can never be 
Pointed Out!

One Precious Moment passed thus taking away 
A lifetime Golden Opportunity
to 
Excel in life
but sincerely paving way for 
Another Such Opportunity 
in the form of 
The Next Moment!

'ALL IS WELL' HERE, IF IT ENDS 'WELL ALONE!'

The time was 3 PM, the close of Working Shift hrs.. The gentleman got up from his seat, closed his bag and was about move..

The telephone rang.. It was from the Boss.. The order was come to his Chamber after half hr.. And as the gentleman kept down the phone, his mobile phone rang.. The family too wanted him in half hr at home to take care of some urgent personal work..

The man was directionless for a minute.. But Thank God, he could quickly recollect what his elder well-wisher had said once upon a time in respect of such a situation in Work Environment, firmed up within, instantly over the phone arranged for family the support required and straight away headed to the Boss Chamber..

The Boss who had gone to GM's Office had not yet returned and the gentleman sat there awaiting the Boss arrival.. In between, he followed up with the family over phone for any major hold up in their plans, found everything OK and as he further started waiting there, the once said words of his well-wisher were ringing in his ears..

"Your working at any point of time during the Employment is never limited solely to working hours stipulated by your Organization.. 

The reason behind this is that when you enter into a Contract in respect of your work with your Employer, you carry a promise to him/her that his/her business / task for which you are compensated will not come to a halt, slow down, lack service support or suffer damage just because you are off from the work.. This promise invariably exists as you take up your Employment to serve the interests of your Employer..

Thus, when you continue to be on the Contract of your Employer, all the time you should work with the discipline of helping out his/her task/business the best from your side and you are off from it only when such an absence doesn't hinder the progress there even a bit.. 

Specifically speaking, your Extra Working here at any point of time invariably is due to one of the 3 reasons Viz.;

  • Your Customer may need your help all of sudden and in order to achieve the highest Customer satisfaction which is the primary motto of a good business, you need to address that then and there itself..
  • You might not have completed your planned work to meet the Monthly/Qtrly Schedules set in advance and to meet all those deadlines and thus to take care of the Employer's planned deliveries.. 
  • Your Employer might have planned Vocational Training for you which you must undergo to acquire extra skills required at work all along your Original Work Plan remaining the same.. 
Thus Overtime Booking at Work becomes a truly a necessity..

Of course, seen from the side of the Employee's welfare, the Employer out of greed, may make an individual work beyond for better returns and thus may exploit the man at work through longer hours of work and work loads beyond..

With the back ground of all these facts, the State Rules ever stipulate 8 hours of work in a day with weekly offs, holidays and leave from work to take care of the welfare of man at work on one side and allows Overtime Booking too on the other side thru' certain extra welfare measures for the Employee such as..
 

  • Fixed Over Time hrs for the day,
  • Extra remuneration for the extra hrs,
  • No of days to work thus continuously without a Holiday,
  • Compulsory Holiday after that continuous working with the Overtime,
  • Immediate fixed time rest after the Regular Shift and before the start of Overtime for the day, 
  • Free Canteen Facilities during the Stay for the day and 
  • Free Transport to drop back home at the end of the scheduled stay for the day! 

And again to say.. These Rules are basically applicable only for all those Levels in the Organization below the Supervisory Cadre.. Supervisory level and above, the Employer generally may just compensate thru’ a 'Time Off' and nothing more and he/she is free to do that!

MY EVER LOVED 'MUSE' IN MY LIFE!


In one of the old classic films as I had seen and remembered, the gentleman in the taxi would be discussing some serious subject and at the end of a certain say he confirms the same by repeating the word, ‘Right?' for which the co-passenger invariably nods his head as he truly understands the 'Spirit of the Right' behind the talk.. 

Like wise the gentleman says 4 times in approx equal intervals of time and when he looks out at the end of the 4th time, he would see himself at the starting point itself, the taxi driver all the while sincerely following each of his ‘Right Saying' for a 'Right Turn!'

The joke here may be too classic but ultimately seen from both the sides of the driver and the passenger, both were 100% right, none had done an iota of wrong and thus each carried their own strength and respect even though what materialized ultimately was something totally different!

Thus seen clearly, it can be 100% emphasized that ultimately the 'Right known this Moment' surely wins everywhere.. A perfect 'Win-Win' situation even though the result may be anything!

A few words here on this Right and the associated wrong too in parallel..

  • The Right Thought, Talk and Action with me are forever in perfect Unison without creating a tension in me at any point of time.. Whereas the wrong thought, talk and action each means something different every time creating endless tensions in my life! 
  • The Right in the world ever stands by itself as firmly as a rock.. The wrong here is eternally shaky without a base constantly looking at the Right for the earliest support.. 
  • The Right on the face of it may appear feeble but That alone ultimately drives out the seemingly strong wrong without an exception..
  • There's always a single Right Action in front of me to be completed at a particular moment of my life.. Where as the wrong actions are countless in number each luring me in its own way and equally creating its own confusion..
  • The single Right known to me for the moment may not be the Ultimate Right or the Absolute Right but that alone sure leads me there all along retaining my peace with me.. But the single wrong that initially lures me, makes me restless, drags me into countless other wrongs and finally leaves me as a corpse of confusion and nothing in this life!
  • The Right never changes because I wish It be something different, extra interesting, more rewarding or less troublesome.. That way, the wrong instantly suits me and goes according to my 100% liking! 
  • The world may never be behind me appreciating all along as I am into the Right but, the moment I do one single wrong invariably questions me endlessly and never leaves me go scot-free even once! 
  • Even if somehow I come out of the clutches of questioning for deviating from the Right which a few times may be possible, the fag end of my life in such a scenario would never be great and invariably zeroes me towards a state of total restlessness.. The less said here, the better! 
  • If dedication is missing in my Right Action, or It is not done in time or required energies are not put into It, the next Action needs more vigor which involves all that correction needed for the earlier non performance and the accumulation thus ever continues and never stops! 
  • Ultimately I alone have to pay back all that debt from my side with compound interest and without an inch of default as that is the Eternal Law of Universe which forever Guards and Regulate the Life on Earth where in I forever am a Registered Member! 

Seen totally with such back up, my 'muse' in my life is going to be forever the 'Sacred Right' alone known to me this moment as that one alone ultimately can truly 'Inspire' me in all my future actions!

THE 'GREATER PHENOMENON' OF THE UNIVERSE!


It was ascertained from times immemorial that a Particular Method of Working/Living would bring in Certain Fixed Results.. But people equally questioned this rationalization, as sometimes there would be no logical explanation to co-relate Happenings with the Effort put in and many times to the point of Exactness too as ascertained thru' the same logic!
  • Like the logical saying that if a man walks at the speed of 5 km per hr, he reaches his destination of 2.5 km in half hr but to affirm that he 100% reaches his destination is a million dollar question ever hanging on us!
A few people with such a doubt once had approached a Great Master to get a clarification.. The Master said, 

“It is a fact that when you perceive yourself as limited, all around you too exactly appear to be working with a perfect reasoning depicting there a definite Cause and Effect pattern and no other equation is seen having a place there.. A feeling that I do, I achieve, I satisfy myself and I experience will forever make one perceive this Cause and Effect alone in his/her life..

But there are equally Infinite number of happenings in Nature which go through again an Infinite number of processes and procedures that can never be deciphered and quantified at any time through the limited human mind experiences.. And that's exactly where our Mother Nature with Her own Beauty of Wilderness simply exists As Is around us..




This concept of Infinity with respect to Nature and Universe can never be grasped by human mind through any amount of rationalization and reasoning.. And exactly, here alone fits in the concept of Faith that exists in Human Being..

This Faith in an individual is nothing but his/her own Spiritual Level of Understanding.. This Elevation in an individual in his/her life which can never be quantified in numbers does its own Wonders indirectly which hither to no other imposed self disciplines could bring in.. And here each individual becomes Unique by himself/herself or we can say that that Personality is Unique..

Experience of Divinity or Oneness in the Universe too is a phenomenon related to this Faith as such an experience is ever away from the ordinary rationalization and reasoning.. Here, each individual is full with his/her own Faith or Belief, IT cannot be shaken up once established and IT would forever be moving UP constantly towards the Ultimate


Such a Great Faith alone brings in the Greatest Wonders to the world and the Great Men of the world too could do a Yeoman Service to humanity through such Faith..

And all these Programs again, would be part of Nature with time when certain Order suffers and dis-order prevails and leveling becomes an important activity as Sloka 7 Chapter 4 of Srimad Bhagavad Gita ever reiterates this..

yadayadaahi dharmsya 
glanir bhavati bhaarata;
Abhyuttham adharmasya 
tadaatmaanam srijaamyaham!

Whenever there is decline of righteousness, O Arjuna and rise of unrighteousness, then I manifest myself (on the Earth)!"

WHERE DO I STAND HERE?

  • My house may be broader; but the entry is ever a problem when my mind is not so!
  • My age may command respect but equally demands a responsibility attached!
  • Myself, happily living around strong emotions is like playing a gripping game with sharp swords.. 
  • I may say truth but simultaneously I should allow my people to hold, test, evaluate and then only accept what I say! 
  • Nature is ever the perfect umpire next to me in the clever life games I'm ready to play!
  • No great learning is needed for me to be at my peace.. Likewise, not having too deep faith in anything around is truly the opening gate of my freedom!
  • No one really had asked about me; I'm only presenting myself to them.. Likewise, no one had stopped me from leading a decent life; I only happily have embraced the indecent life!
  • The funny part of my life is.. My energy, time and capacity are always limited for the world requirement but never the other man’s and I openly say that! 
  • My wisdom forever lies in caring more for serious life making a joke of easy life!
  • I should ever meet the requirements but never the extensions!
  • When my relationship is a fact, easy pardoning should be a fiction with me!  
  • The depth of my liking is truly unknown to me.. Equally I don't know what I'm made of till a situation comes up!
  • My sincerity maintained and my respect earned are ever directly proportional!

'FREE PLAY' Vs 'THE CONDITIONAL MATCH FIXING!'


A man mused..

“I had taken all precautions and am guarding myself all the time effectively.. 

  • I keep good habits, follow the safety norms, discipline myself everywhere and am law abiding.. 
  • I keep sufficient monies ready for any exigency which are easily accessible.. 
  • I've all important telephone numbers of my close friends and relatives so that their help can be sought in the nick of time.. 
  • I pray to God regularly and surrender to Him as He alone takes care ultimately everywhere! 

But still I am constantly worried, not able to relax in anything around me and feel lost many times where as my friend who more or less does similar activities is seen forever happy, relaxed with what's in front of him and appear contented!” 

His friend recalled..

“I had taken all precautions and am guarding myself all the time effectively.. 


  • I keep good habits, follow the safety norms, discipline myself everywhere and am law abiding.. 
  • I keep sufficient monies ready for any exigency which are easily accessible.. 
  • I've all important telephone numbers of my close friends and relatives so that their help can be sought in the nick of time.. 
  • I pray to God regularly and surrender to Him as He alone takes care ultimately everywhere! 

I am happy, relax with what is in front of me and feel contented where as my friend is constantly worried, not able to relax in anything around him and appear lost many times..

As I, forever carry a single additional thought in me without any preconditions that 


  • 'All people along with my care are basically good and are with me always..' 

where as my friend says that he can believe there only

  • 'When the give and take match otherwise never!'"
