THE STORY BEHIND 

THE RELIGION/CASTE BASED POLITICS! 

The citizen mused.. 

'I distinctly enjoy a 100% 2 freedoms in my life under the democratic ruling in practice in my country..

The no 1 of that being my freedom of expression in my life! 

When I proceed to talk on any specific issue, the concerned Specialist group challenges me on lack of experimentation from my side.. 

When I talk 'what is what' about any ruling issues, the powerful around stop me from doing that through a threat of physical attack.. 

When I talk of any general issue around, the concerned group invariably stops me from doing that through a threat of litigation.. 

When I try to talk as a representative of my own group, my group Head gives me guidelines on what to talk.. 

I am left with to talk freely only what I learnt in my schooling and feel safe which 
no one objects, no one questions and no one modifies! 

Thus I enjoy my freedom of expression for a full 5 yr term being constantly tossed upon the frying pan from end to the end with the freedom from which end to which end being totally my choice alone when 

The second freedom of mine.. The Right to Vote surfaces!

Here in, I'll be free to elect my Ruling Rep again for getting tossed upon the frying pan for the next 5 yrs but 
Electing the Rep sure saves me from directly falling into the fire below my pan 
As that process indirectly prevents the readily waiting dictator to take over once for all making me lose both the freedoms at one stroke.. 
Else no regrets..

Let the caste/religion based politics be part and parcel of my life!'

THE TRUE STORY OF A MAGIC WAND!


That night I was restless.. 

Yes.. I want to help the difficult and less privileged people around me max and bring a meaning to their living in the fastest way.

But I was constantly discouraged here not to overdo and advised to be in the right path.

'That soon made me rage within.. 

Why can't I do a good thing straight away? 

The people are sure stopping me to bring in the faster change; I don't know why!'

‘Give me a magic wand and I will bring a drastic change to the social surroundings the next moment!'
I thought.

Lo.. To my surprise.. 
The next moment the wand was in my hands.
'Yes..This's what I wanted and
None can stop me now from doing what I wanted!'

In no time, 
I wielded my wand with certain numbers in the list and
That change I wanted instantly materialized.
Yeah! Truly a great achievement; isn't it?

What next?

Let me include more and more numbers and bring the great change in their lives.. 
Sure.. That too soon happened in no time..

What next?

Yes.. Include more.. more and more! 

Wait.. What's happening?
Where are those more and more numbers here?
The wand had sure done it's job perfectly and wiped out all those differences in no time..
With no more numbers left and peace ruling everywhere!

But without numbers, what further is there for me to do in this life?
No.. I don't allow it.. I shouldn't allow it!
Then?

It's simple.. Let me create the numbers required..
I have the magic wand and I can sure do what I want..
More numbers than earlier!

Suddenly I woke of from my deep sleep..
God.. It was a dream only.. But sure a very bad dream!

The Unbalance in Nature is a fact and no doubt, setting right as much as possible is my task here
But that sacred work ever is thru' 
2 noble traits of me alone with
nothing less and nothing more of it too at any time Viz.,

Lessening my self interest all along and
Putting in my efforts max in the direction required!

They alone bring the true harmony in living by reducing the gap between haves and have nots in this world.. 
And my life should continue thus here all along with a firm belief that

I am not the doer but I do my job well!

THE TRUTH OF MY OWN UNDERSTANDING AND THE UNTRUTH OF MY OWN IGNORANCE!

*** When the Contemporary Philosopher was approached by the grieving lady who requested Him to help her bring back her dead husband alive as she could not cope up with the separation, the Great Man remarked,

  • "Can you please tell me which husband of yours you want alive?"
Stunned with His questioning, the lady looked at the Philosopher not able to make out the meaning of His asking thus.

The Great Man said,

  • "Your husband from the time he was born on the earth to the time he passed away was sure a different individual at every moment of his life. I want to know which of these infinite personalities you want in front of you at this moment?"
The lady instantly understood that as change is an ever green aspect of one's life, death automatically becomes one instance of that change and yearning for constancy there indirectly has no meaning ultimately. That soon made her feel light and helped her freeing herself partly of her grief.

*** When the grieving mother approached the Lord asking him to bring back her succumbed child and take off her pain, the Great Saint asked her to fetch a handful of mustard seeds by borrowing from any house which never witnessed sorrow in the times known.

The lady instantly moved from house to house to get the item asked by the Lord. People were ready to relieve her pain by lending their mustered seeds but when informed of the other condition there, every one expressed their own limitation there as sure they experienced certain sorrow in their life thru' the separation of one of the family members.

  • She finally returned empty handed but no doubt with a better understanding that death is common to all those born which truly balances the existing ecology 'as is' around!
*** When Prince Yudhisthira was asked a final question by Lord Yaksha,

"What is the strangest part of man's living on the earth?"

He instantly answered,
  • "What is born is sure to die in this world. Strangely, man forgets this Truth very much in front every moment, continues his thinking that he is permanent here and thus lives his life!"
Whenever I look at such Great Revelations made by the Great Personalities of Earth from time to time who all along lived a life of Truth, I may temporarily be carried over by that Truth and it may sure appear to me that I could understand this and that's all the living of life with me in front..

Thus a type of emotion sets in me but sure it is temporary and short lived only as my inner nature in no time mesmerizes me that life is permanent on the earth and accordingly I start moving with my activities.

This truly is the Power of Illusion with me and just because something is clear to me at mind level, it never means that I am the embodiment of that Understanding. Thus, all Great Personalities who are/were truly Embodiment of this Truth can sure inspire me in this direction thru' their preachings and living but really can never take me to that Truth level which ultimately I myself alone have to do.

Till that time, the IndiSpire Topic If you could bring back someone from the other side of the rainbow bridge for just one day, would you do that?#defeatingdeathforaday

forever remains with me as truth of my own understanding as well as the untruth of my own ignorance and that life I got to live here never able to answer the IndiSpire question with a 100% surety.

No doubt my life should continue at this level thus thru' time in front at the back of nothing but a dedicated and honest work diligently discharging the ordained responsibilities of mine all along which no doubt lessens/partly removes my ignorance in this life paving way for dawn of certain truth which aspect of course again finally is thru' the Grace of Almighty alone..

Thus seen the life in front, let me without an iota of doubt do my job to the best level known to me, offer a sincere Prayer for the Ultimate Illumination and remain in peace!'

ONCE IN A WAY.. SURELY, A COMEDY OF LIES!

The Customer rang up the phone..

  • “The activities are planned to start at 0630 PM. The time is 0600 PM. The Supplies have not come to the spot!”
The man at the other end replied,
  • "Sir! We are already on the way. We'll sure be there by 0630 PM!”
The Customer was a bit annoyed. He raised the level..
  • “Your people should be here at least by 0600 PM. They are saying that they come only at the exact time. By chance they get delayed on the way?"
The Supervisor said,
  • “Sir! I understand your anxiety. No problem.. I am coming there at 0615 PM itself and I follow up with my men!"
The Supervisor rang up the Team Worker, 
  • ”Where are you now?”
  • “Sir! we take a min of 45 mts to reach the place. That way, we will be there only by 0645 PM!
  • “Ok.. You come there by 0645 PM and I can be there by 0630 PM as I'm 15 mts ahead of you in traffic. Let me ask our Boss to talk to the Customer and answer him on the 15 minute delay from our end because of heavy traffic!”
The Supervisor rang up the Boss and explained the situation. The Boss asked,
  • “Can all of you reach there by 0645 PM?”
  • “Oh! That is very easy, Sir! In fact, I'll be reaching 15 mts earlier as I'm ahead in traffic!
  • “OK.. Be there at 0645 PM but tell the people there that you were waiting since 0615 PM, your men came there exactly at 0630 PM and you were all searching for the Customer!”
The Supervisor could not understand head and tail of what his Boss had said. As ordered by the Boss, they reached the place at 0630 PM and 0645 PM and told the related people when asked that they reached at 0615 PM and 0630 PM and were searching for their Customer. The people there asked them to wait saying that the activities were yet to start. Got relieved, they were relaxing for a while when the Customer came to them at 0700 PM saying,
  • "Is everything OK?”
They again repeated the Boss' words,
  • “Sir we are here from 0615 PM and 0630 PM onwards waiting for you!”
  • “Good! Actually the activities start at 0730 PM but I just brought you in advance saying that it starts at 0630 PM!”
In no time, the Boss rang up to the Supervisor..
  • "Okay.. I saved you this time and saved our Agency from getting a bad name. Next time no excuse; I expect you to be in time!"
The friend with the Boss who was hearing to all that talk asked,
  • "Dear! How could manage this with such an open lie?"
The Boss smiled and said,
  • "The Customer was going in front of our Office at 0600 PM in his vehicle. To reach his home, he takes 1 hr minimum and without him the activities can't start. I estimated this and quickly told my folks to say that they were there from 0615 PM and 0630 PM. When the Customer reached at 0700 PM my people were already there of course from 0630 PM and 0645 PM only.
I agree that there were many 'ifs' and 'buts' in this entire drama. I just took the calculated risk from my end as there was almost no go for us with the Customer ready to corner us and saved ourselves from getting a bad name.. And luckily it clicked in the nick of the time and helped us!”

WHEN THE CORRUPTION RULES INSTEAD OF THE RULER..

A king working on the lines of democracy suddenly decided that no homeless would be in his kingdom. Accordingly, he passed his own detailed Order thus..

"***All homeless hereafter will never be seen on the roads.

  • The younger group of them will be given jobs if they can do and if not, will be trained for the requirement and provided jobs. 
  • The older group will be positioned in homes provided for them under all the care required. 
  • The children's group will be sent to children's home for their growth and up bringing. 
  • Rest who can't take care of themselves will be looked after thru' certain exclusive welfare schemes specially provided for them.

The progress in this direction will be diligently followed up and feedback will be provided to the immediate higher ups at regular intervals of time by their respective action groups.

Take necessary funds and immediately start implementing this Scheme.. You understand what I mean!"


That Order of the king instantly was passed down the line successively thru' certain delegation at each level and equally thru' an equal dilution at that level and implemented vigorously with the funds successively used up for personal gains of course all along never missing passing on the core message thus..

"***All homeless hereafter will never be seen on the roads.

  • The younger group of them will be given jobs. 
  • The older group will be positioned in homes provided for them. 
  • The children's group will be sent to children's home. 
The progress in this direction will be diligently followed up and feedback will be provided to the immediate higher ups.

Take necessary funds and immediately start implementing this Scheme.. You understand what I mean!"

"***All homeless hereafter will never be seen on the roads.

The progress in this direction will be diligently followed up.

Take necessary funds and immediately start implementing this Scheme.. You understand what I mean!"

"***All homeless hereafter will never be seen on the roads.

Take necessary funds and immediately start implementing this Scheme.. You understand what I mean!"


Finally the message was received by the men who physically passed on the same to the homeless on roadside asking them go away from there with the left out final single line,

"***You understand what I mean!"

The homeless instantly moved away but soon returned and continued repeating that going away and coming back all along their lives!

THIS CONFUSION AND CLARIFICATION FOREVER GO TOGETHER!

A young man was truly confused as the Great Sayings and what the Great Men a few times spoke of in that context were exactly found to be opposite like..

  • ‘Save enough finances for future as you earn since it's your primary duty in this world!’
And the opposite
  • ‘You should spend reasonable monies on good living and on Charity as these are bounden duties with you!’
  • ‘Eat well and thus maintain a good health!’
And the opposite
  • ‘Eat frugal and fast yourself to purify!’
  • ‘Work hard as it is a Sacred Duty with you!’ 
And the opposite
  • ‘Do Meditation all along and be at Peace!’
etc..etc.. Finally on a day, he came across a story of a Great Saint Himself to protect a robber said to the Security Guards,
  • 'I did the robbery!'
When all along the Great Saying ever on the anvil was
  • 'Speak the Truth!'
That was sure seen as the limit to his confusion, the next day he approached the Head of the Monastery in his neighborhood and sincerely sought the clarification on his doubt..

'How come one would develop faith in such scenario when the Great Men themselves spoke/did the opposite?' 

The Head smiled and said,

“Dear! What appeals to you is not That!”

The man looked at the Senior Personality on the matters unable to make out head and tail of what He spoke. The Head continued,
  • “What appeals to you is always out of a self interested thought as that basically protects an individual and Mother Nature has instilled this protection in all living beings for basic survival. The animal instinct may okay it's requirement 
But
  • Human considerations should necessarily rise above this level as the Purpose of Human Birth is entirely different with each individual sure involving in a certain self negation however small it may be in his/her life and thus rise in this one precious life in front. 
The very sign of this rising is nothing but living with a certain attention in one's life wherein this appealing would constantly be checked/questioned and clearly distinguished from the need in front.

Thus as you live your further life, the Clarity that comes thru' in you will itself guide you further and you will surely be knowing at every instant, what to do and what not to do without a single doubt!”

THE TIGHT ROPE WALK..

A dad had a peculiar problem.

  • When he was authoritative, his growing children used to be obedient and follow his advice and instructions but in that scenario he used to feel 'bad' that he was harsh to them.. 
  • The moment he became lenient, there used to be chaos and some order lost and in the process as a responsible father, he once again needed to correct them and that correction invariably used to be again through authority alone.. 
Thus he was feeling sad and could never understand the right way of action in that context. One fine day, he discussed the same with an elderly well-wisher and at length sought a right solution to his problem.

The elderly wise man listened to him, smiled and said,

“Dear! I understand your sensitivity here but whatever be your reaction, you agree that you have to do the ultimate good to your family.

The children are bound to listen to you if you insist in the right way as that alone is good for them. But along with this, your harshness and forceful thrusting may come up without yourself knowing it. And that should definitely be avoided here.

There if you are lax beyond at the back of an emotional feeling in you of not disturbing their relaxation, your people soon try skipping over the right and that's never good to them at any point of time in their life..

So, your day to day exercise should be..
  • Hold the reigns and be tough but only for a specific period in a day and 
  • When it's time to relax, truly relax without a feeling that you should maintain a distance to do this management, simply be with them and communicate heart to heart.
And your discipline again starts the next day without fail!

Thus move on in this life at this stage cyclically following the discipline of being strict, listening, strict, listening, strict etc whatever be your feelings out of your emotional attachment and manage the day to day activities in the right direction!"

CONTEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS..

The 5+ yrs had to go for many extra curricular activities at the young age. Naturally those extra activities in school curriculum as well as outside the curriculum were invariably on Sundays and holidays and that way the child was continuously made to involve into all those activities.





For a while, the grandpa felt a lot for the little one struggling to learn/do so many new beyond normal studies and there was a question in him for a while..

'Should the boy be put to that much hardship at that tender age making him tire beyond?'

For a while he was restless and almost decided to discuss his point with the family members to see that the boy was taken off partly from all that additional work load.

At that moment, suddenly, there was a flash in his mind.. And as the old man sat in his easy chair and thought over for a while, slowly a certain message was seen percolating within him..

'Contemporary knowledge/skills are the most important entities in one’s work life.

Any additional knowledge/skill with one away from own specialization is contemporary knowledge/skill assuming that he/she is update in his/her specialization.

Partly, contemporary knowledge/skills are taught up to the class where the schooling ends in one’s life. Rest of this knowledge/skills are acquired through one’s interaction in society and extra interests and this varies from person to person.

One always does one's work through one's specialization the best, no doubt about that. But doing alone is not all. One has to sell his/her work else money will not come.

That selling is a trick and one's basic skill or specialization alone can't do that unless there is less supply and more demand in the market. But most of the times it is definitely the other way in the world; more supply and less demand! So one has to sure create demand and compete in respect of the supply.

May be the quality of work which is out of one's skill alone may limit competition from others to certain extent when pricing and timely deliveries are taken care. But surely creation of demand depends upon one's skills of social interactions and all knowledge in that direction to the maximum.. And here only the contemporary knowledge/skills sure play a definite role!

The Employer may primarily take up the task of creating the demand but he/she definitely expects his Employee to assist in this. Therefore, an Employee does not have much choice in that!

So, next time when children are seen involving in anything beyond studies, pause and think.

That requirement is sure part and parcel of the coming up in life well, of course with the core specialization as base.. And that expression is never a waste in one's life!'

WHY AM I UNHAPPY?

FIRST OF ALL, LET ME KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPINESS IS..

My life is not one 100% of my make alone. Let me do my bit here all along upholding the 'Right' to the best of my knowledge, that's good enough. 

Better leave beyond and relax for a while! 

LET ME ADAPT TO NATURE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.. 

I am originally from Nature and never from anywhere else. Listening to my 'Original Mother' never lets me down. 
Where's the doubt here that something else is superior? 

FOR A WHILE, LET ME KEEP MY HATRED IN COLD STORAGE.. 

I only make or mar my life and no one can touch it, if I decide upon that. 
Whenever I point out my finger at the other man, the other 3 fingers of mine might have curled in silently but the cosine of their action is never less and ever pointed towards me only. 
Better I know this the earliest! 

LET THE ENQUIRY SPIRIT NEVER BE EXTINGUISHED.. 

I have a deep quest within to do something and be something worth beyond all the worldly achievements. 
Let this be never killed through the rotten monotonous routine which keeps me static endlessly!

THERE'S NO GO FOR ME OTHER THAN BELIEVING IN ONENESS.. 

All human beings and the life around have many characteristics common whether l like or not. They are all already One long, long back before I was born. So the earliest I look this side, the better! 

THEY SAY.. 'WORK TO THE CORE!' WHY SO? 

Work alone moves the world. Let me contribute my 'Best' here without a second thought as I continuously consume.. 
Neither small in quantity nor less in varieties! 

LET CHANGE BE THE NO 1 PARTNER OF MY LIFE.. 

Every Moment is a new situation without an escape. 
Let me ever live through this change and experience the 'New' rather than remain stubborn sticking to the old of endless repetition! 

'GIVE GIVE GIVE..' BETTER I BECOME ATTENTIVE HERE AT THE EARLIEST! 

A man believed.. 
"My money alone saves me!" 
Days passed into weeks, months and years, it happens. 
No doubt by that time, a fortune was with him but he became old and that money surely saved him.
It changed hands fast, freed the man and made him Spiritual the next moment.
Is it worth waiting till that happens? 

SHOULD I NOT TAKE THE MINIMUM REQ? 

The greedy man decided, 
"I'll not waste this food. Let me eat it off!"
A wise man remarked, 
"You are right. Let it not be wasted.. 
But it rots better in dustbin rather than in your stomach!" 

HAVE I FORGOTTEN THE LAST POINT.. WHEN DID I PRAY TO GOD? 

The 'Next Moment in Life' is forever a toss in spite of my best efforts. 
Why not tune up to this 'Great Reality' for a while? 
If done, there alone lies my 
'True Prayer!'

NO DOUBT, IT'S ALL BUSINESS!

A young man got into a new but a mediocre job which never payed him much and he equally could not shift to another job too immediately as the Employers preferred a certain work experience from his end.. He was not satisfied with his immediate earnings and wanted to boost the same thru' an indirect business continuing his job and accordingly decided to venture into a small business all by himself afresh.

As he had no experience in the field, some one told him to take advice from one who was well known in the field but actively not doing any business in that line. When contacted, the man advised him on how and where to invest his finances. 3 months passed and on a fine day, the young man incurred a big loss and instantly found that one fourth of his investment gone at a single stroke.

A close friend told him that the previous Adviser might have been tipped by the big man in the field and so it would be always better to get a second independent opinion, average out and decide in all such ventures. And the young man had no way other than go for it. Another 3 months passed. It looked worked, but still there was a loss in the business and after all calculations the young man found that he lost an additional of one eighth of his investment.

Another friend advised him to take 2 such additional opinions in the field from two independent parties and decide based on the average of the three and the young man had no go again but to follow that. Next, six months passed thus. He was stable for a while, initially certain loss was there but of negligible percentage and soon profits showed up in small numbers.

A third friend advised him always to average out the best opinions available around and act. The young man soon followed that. But the success was again limited as the profits too averaged out.

Finally a well-wisher advised him to go to the man who was a Stalwart in the field and take his advice. The young man accordingly went to him, got the advice and returned.

And thereafter, he consistently made sizable monies in his life without a break!

What did the Stalwart in the field advice him in that context?

Kindly ref to the ANSWER here. 
Thanks for the patience!

NO DOUBT, IT'S ALL BUSINESS.. CONTD..
  • The Stalwart advised him to resign from his on going job as well as stop venturing in all those businesses and as he had got certain min experience in business dealings, offered him a Senior Position in his own Company for a handsome salary!
Thanks once again for the patience!

THE 'MIN QUALIFICATION' REQUIRED FOR ENTRY INTO SPIRITUAL FIELD!

3 young men once approached a Saint in an Ashram and requested Him to accept them as His disciples.. The Master gave them a 'Single Instruction' to complete a particular task and report to Him after a fortnight on the progress. All the 3 moved on accordingly, spent that time on the task assigned and at length returned. The 1st young man said,

“Reverend Sir! I couldn't exactly do the job you asked a 100% but completed in a limited way!"

The Master said,

  • "You could have at least done to the level I advised!" 
The young man replied,

"I was afraid of the consequences of doing thus!”

The Master looked at the 2nd one.. He said,

“Reverend Sir! I could do the job you asked a 100%!"

The Master said,

  • "You could have done a little more than I advised!" 
The young man replied,

"I was afraid of the consequences of doing thus!”

The Master looked at the 3rd young man.. He said,

“Master! I started doing the job you asked me to do. But soon I was convinced of a better way of doing there with a certain associated risk and as I couldn't do anything less in that context, I firmed up and completed the job in that direction!"

The Master said,
  • "But I never asked you to do all that!"
The young man replied,
  • "I agree but my intuition propelled me to do in that way and I could never say 'NO' there!"
The Master instantly accepted the 3rd young man as His disciple. The 2nd one protested saying that he did exactly in the way the Master asked him to do but still was not taken as His disciple. The Master smiled and said,
  • "Forever ready to do something beyond setting aside one's own fears as well as the inhibitions all along giving importance to the intuition within is the primary characteristic of a person in the line of spirituality and one who aspires to be in that line better exhibit this quality before entry into the related Institution.. 
  • And this fine way of doing our actions in a better way truly to say has an 'Infinite Depth.' An Evolved Soul alone can see at that 'Infinite Depth' where in all actions cease into a totally 'Action less State!'
  • For all others who are not at that level, continuing doing the ordained duties with them to the best of their abilities alone is the safeguard in their life till more Clarity comes through the decent of 'Grace of Lord' which is part of 'The Divine Plan in this Universe!'”

DECENT Vs MESSY BEHAVIORS

In the initial stages of friendship..

“Hi, friends.. I'm Ramesh, your Colleague of this Department. Nice to meet both of you.. I heard that you both are Experts in...... Great to have you with us!”

  • “Oh, it's you, Ramesh? Am Suresh from..... I think, you praised me beyond. Heard that you are one of the stalwarts of.......!”
  • "Hello.. This's Dinesh from..... Nice to meet you too.. Thank you for the praise!"
After a certain acquaintance,

“Hi, My dear Suresh & Dinesh! Small suggestion, yaar to both of you. Sure, you both are doing a great job but as I see, if you can do few changes in......., the results would be too good. It's just an advice from my side as a friend.. Sorry for the interference!”
  • “Yaar, What are you saying? This Suresh ever welcomes such advices.. We are very much interested to know that.. What do you say, Dinesh?”
  • “Sure, you are welcome, Ramesh here.. But presently I feel that I'm okay and I'll definitely consider your valuable advice if I face a problem here. Thanks for such a friendly support!”
Then onwards in private..

“Dear, Suresh! No doubt you did a Good Job. But just deviated at ……….. which is very important from the perspective of………”
  • “Sure Ramesh, right now I set it right.. And thank you very much for the correction!”
Subsequent to that..

“My dear! You have again repeated the mistake where I asked you to correct. I very much told you to be careful in…….”
  • “Oh, it happened? OK, I'll try making it alright!”
And further beyond..

“Oh! Dear! What happened to you? Once again.. Can’t you be careful at this point which I stressed so many times?”
  • "---------"
Finally on a day..

“What dear? Something seems to be eternally wrong with you. Any sensible person will not do this silly mistake a second time.. I feel.....!”
  • “What are you saying, my dear Ramesh? Tell me.. first of all.. Who are you here to talk about me like this? You are just my Colleague and not my Boss, do you know? Just keep off.. I think I allowed you too much and you are sitting right on my head all along!”

TRULY A SECULAR INDIA, WHEN..

A man attempted doing a work, found from the beginning not encouraging and soon failed in that. But his initial firm assertion in respect of his Faith continued as usual with a never failing smile on his face..

  • "Yes.. It's just a probability of success or failure here in our life in spite of putting forward our best efforts. Here, seeing for ever cause and effect, believing in doing good and leading a life of true expression out of my own freedom.. They alone define my life!"
Soon he made up his mind and took up the 2nd work. That progressed well to half of completion to his joy but beyond that to the surprise of every one, suddenly failed. In no time, the man started speaking out with a certain Faith established in him..
  • "Yes.. The cause and effect and the probability of happening may be the factors here but doing good everywhere and beyond believing in God alone are the realities distinctly seen by me at this point of time!"
He took sometime to recover, picked up courage and took up the 3rd job with his faith firmly ruling within all along. Soon everything went on well and it was a 100% success there. In no time he started speaking the importance of one's own in Faith in leading a happy life..
  • "Yes.. Leave all that talk of cause and effect, probability of happening etc.. It no more interests me. Firmly believing in that He alone moves me all along myself doing good followed by a sincere Prayer at the end of the day completes my day on earth at this point of time!"
As life moved thus, he suddenly experienced a medium sized road accident with his confidence all of a sudden shaken to the root followed by an agony of physical pain. No doubt, some advices were around on how to get over all that and he soon started doing all that at the back of very slow recovery.
  • Right at that point of time to the surprise of every one, the man totally left his earlier talk and started regularly Praying to his Deity as per his own Religious thinking imbibed from his child and the Associated Faith with a total surrender attitude thus.. 
'Om Trayambakam Yajamahe
Sugandhim Pushti Vardhanam
Urvarukamiva Bandhanath

'We worship the three eyed one lord shiva who is of spiritual essence and nourishes all beings. May he severe our bondage of samsara and thus liberate us!'

On an average that being the way almost everyone move in life sooner or later zeroing down in their life towards their belief in God thru' a surrender approach, it's time such firm belief of faith of an individual whatever is respected by every one 'As Is' without an iota of force to modify it and further wish for the betterment of the individual to progress in that line.

Thus continuing one's Faith in life simultaneously carrying an equal regard for the next man's Faith should go on in our life. Here all are equal, none less or none more and the State should make a note of it, allow it freely go on without a discrimination between individuals or their groups and thus make its own Rules and Regulations independent of such individual Faiths respecting them in their own places..

And a better India forever is thru' such ultimate Sacred Feeling alone in the hearts of the Rulers and the Ruled at any time!

The Post is written in line with the IndiSpire Prompt We, the people have remained secular in principle only. The ground realities tell a different story. Should we do away with secularism? Alternately, what can we do to strengthen secularism? #SecularIndia

MAKING OWN IN TIME GENERATES CARE AND DISOWNING IN TIME STIMULATES GROWTH!

A father of 4 children once bought a big special banana fruit bunch full of banana fruit to be ripened and kept the same in a corner of his house for consumption by the family over a period of time.

The next day morning, the children had seen this and secretly kept an eye on the bunch. And after sometime, it all started..

  • First, the little one secretly took one fruit and ate it off.. 
  • Seeing that, his next sibling took one and finished it.. 
  • Soon the third one followed and took away one..
  • The eldest too casually plucked one and consumed it.. 
Thus continued the eating each repeating his doing even though the bunch of fruit was not fully ripe.. A few of the fruit was thus over by evening!

The father noticed that when he came back from work and quietly understood what would have happened. Instantly, he decided to bring the situation under control through an innovative plan.

He immediately called all the children, in front of them divided the whole bunch into six equal parts, kept two parts for himself and the mother of the children and gave away the remaining 4 parts to the 4 children saying,

  • “They are yours from now on wards!” 
The children immediately became attentive and very carefully started protecting their shares. From the next day onwards, each started comparing his with that of others, consumed the fruit slowly over a period as they ripened and thus finished all. In the end, the parents gave away their portions not consumed to the children equally and made them further happy!

Seeing that, a neighbor remarked,

“You have done really good job!”

The father smiled and said,

“It is not just eating alone. There were several other good things my children learnt in the process.

  • They all came to know how to take care of their own..
  • They developed a habit of not touching that belonged to others..
  • They started competing among themselves in a healthy way for their own betterment..
  • They utilized the items in good condition all along..
  • They were peaceful within themselves all the time and thus learnt to be content and happy with what they got with the restlessness vanishing from their minds in no time which was very much there before the division! 

And the last important learning is..
  • We both the parents too learnt a valuable lesson here that in future, we should start parting with certain of our saved monies equally among our children as they grow up for a cause and in their exigencies of course keeping sufficient funds for us. 
That will truly result in the monies becoming useful for them for their growth with the responsibility of protecting those excess monies simultaneously taken off from us!”

EXPERIENCE TRULY SPEAKS THUS!

The young man who newly joined a Company had only two important activities with him for a while in respect of the Motto of his Company Viz.,

'The Customer is an important person in our premises!'

Reproduce those words in all the examinations his Department had conducted and repeat that in front of his Boss to impress upon him..

In 3 yrs time, he was made the Group In-Charge and had to deal with the Customer along with his Boss a few times.. The discussions and the impositions from the Client soon made him firm up in his mind that..

'The Customer is not just the important person but a VIP too in our Premises!'

In the next 4 yrs, he took over as Manager in his Department.. Soon, he had to face some tense moments in his new Role with the Customer on few occasions.. That made him re define his earlier Concept Viz.,

'The Customer is not just a VIP but indirectly a King too in our Premises!'

And equally say that in front of his Sub-ordinates whenever he was with them..

Thus passed some years.. The then man of forties had changed his Company and taken up the Senior Executive Role in the new Company operating in a much fierce competitive environment..

He almost had some sleepless nights over the never ending Customer's questioning and the Boss commenting on his new Role.. It was soon a 'Do or Die' situation for him and the Senior Official in no time accepted the 2nd Company's Motto..

'The Customer is a King in our Premises!'

a 100% in his heart.. And thus moved his life for the next 10 years..

On a good day, he was promoted to the Post of General Manager of his Company at the back of his valuable contributions at work.. The new GM reiterated in his inaugural speech at the back of valuable experience in dealing with tough Customers of his Company saying..

'The Customer is not just a King but some times more than a King too in our Premises!'

Time never stopped and soon on a fateful day, the GM was asked to go from the Company due to failure on his behalf in respect of timely deliveries from the Company to the sensitive long standing Customers resulting in certain Customer dissatisfaction.. And that was truly a bad experience for him for a while and from then on

'Forget about more than a King, the Customer sometimes is like the God in our Premises!'

had become his firm thinking. No need to say, he got his Posting again as GM of the Rival Company.. Soon he was again in limelight and his new Company made him its CEO in the next 2 years..

The CEO had the toughest time of walking on the razor's edge in satisfying the Company's Clients.. But his vast experience in the field had truly helped him there to tide over every crisis and he thus became a successful man in his Mission ultimately..

Thus towards the end of his Career, the seasoned CEO ultimately believed a 100% in his 3rd Company's Motto Viz.,

'The Customer is God in our Premises!'

MANY TIMES, THE 'MISSING LINK' IN A DEMOCRATIC SET UP!

The General Body Meeting of the Welfare Association started and as usual the heat was ‘ON' with full force from every corner at the back of many questions and befitting answers for all.. The Members were venting out their woes and the Management Committee was quickly replying to that and getting off..

At a particular instance, there was a question from a Member totally on a personal issue in respect of one of the Services provided by the Association for the benefit of the Members and he requested the Association to intervene and instruct the Service Provider on the issue.. The President quickly answered,

“For problems like this, the individual has to directly deal with the Service Provider and settle the issue. The Association has no role here as we've no knowledge of the personal exchanges taking place between the Members and the Service Provider. We just provided the Service Facility for the benefit of the members and we never restricted a member from negotiating with the Service Provider or going to a similar Service Provider outside!"

The Member who raised the question and others listening to that could not speak further as the answer given by the President had such a force of conviction. Silence prevailed for a while and the President readied himself to go ahead with the further Agenda for the day. Suddenly a Senior Member got up and said,

  • “Sir! I've a point here. Can I say that?"
Everyone including the President and the Member who raised the issue were surprised with the interruption as they all thought that the issue had no base. The President looked at the Senior Member and asked him to say what he wanted to.. The Senior continued..
  • "Sir! You can't say what you have said and get off when you represent our Association working on the lines of Democratic Principles and brought in the very Service into the compound for the benefit of the Members.. Democracy is by the people, for the people and of the people.. Here, the member has always a place to voice his/her grievance, however small and however meaningless it may be!"
The President interrupted and said,

"We never stopped him from doing that. I just said that what happens between the 2 Parties is unknown to us here and because of that alone we don't want to interfere here!"
  • "I agree that that knowledge is not with the Association and it's totally an issue between the 2 Parties.. But the Association alone brought the Service Provider into the Premises, isn't it?"
"That's our job and we did it in the right way only!"
  • "Then please complete the purpose of bringing that Service too inside!"
"I don't get your point!"
  • "Please receive the complaint from the Member as is, let it be answered in the time feasible without loosing sight on the spirit of the problem and let the solution be such that majority of the Members feel that it is addressed in the right way without getting off from the Principles of Natural Justice!"
"We made it very clear that we have no role here to play. As you said, even if we receive such a paper, we have to answer this alone as reply. That I am telling in the AGM itself and closing the issue.. Isn't it the better way?"
  • "Sir, unless you gear up yourself to accommodate not a befitting reply but a solution to the problem thru' certain negotiations between the 3 parties whatever because of your indirect role in that, the final purpose of instilling faith of ruling in the Members on the lines of Democracy is never met. 
And instead of speaking with such a spirit, if you simply say that it's not the issue of the Association, such a talk straight away defeats the very spirit of the Democratic Approach!”

SURE, A BRAKE TO SELF EXPRESSION!

A man mused, 
‘All along I strictly follow a rule bound discipline.. How can any one question me on what I do beyond expressing my freedom?’

The wise man said, 
“You can sure do so provided you within yourself answer without an exception the 
5 Noble Questions 

Have I taken care of my health and safety in the best possible way known to me? 

Have I reasonably worked to the best of my abilities for the day’s Earnings at least to coverup for what I have consumed, for the people' needs whose take care is my responsibility, for the Savings required for future and for spending on the minimum Charity needs? 

Have I taken proper care of my monies in respect of a reasonable spending, growing and safe guarding? 

Have I cared for the people around me and done their related works under the ever remembered theory that one can wield his stick freely around only when one has taken care of the Saying, ‘Your freedom ends where my nose begins’ in the true sense? 

Have I sincerely felt in my heart for all those people whom I considered all the while as not my people and whom I know as my people but do not like their behavior and doings temporarily and wished for their well being as they too are Part of the Creation on whose behalf one day I invariably have to answer the Almighty? 

and remember the 
10 Golden Precepts

Association with good people is the biggest asset of my life.. It's worth loosing all the unnecessary with me in that context! 

The ultimate of my Philosophy/Religion is nothing but caring for the other man impartially! 

I always have abundance of emptiness! 

The force that brought me into this world will not listen to me so easily! 

The highest Level of Understanding the Truth leads to Total Silence.. Better I ever know my grading here! 

The drive in each creature for a particular work is the basic plan of Mother Nature for completion of Her Goals where in invariably lies my need! 

The best Motive in my life is knowing the Truth;nothing less is the best! 

The Cosmic Energy is One.. The Whole Energy is available to me if I wish to make use of it! 

Real achievement in life is the ability to leave my issues in front as they are if required! 

Happenings are too Powerful; I am nothing when they are Unfavorable! 

With such a discipline alone you can expand, express and do what you want in this world else it is ever a sin to do so under the name of freedom saying in a big way.. 
‘All along I strictly follow a rule bound discipline.. How can any one question me on what I do beyond expressing my freedom?’

THUS CONTINUES THE FORCE OF HABIT!

The ‘Right Moment’ was in front.. 
And that Moment could have been filled with 
Whatever possible Nobler Action, 
Sure a Heart Warming Word and 
Doubtlessly a Higher Level Thought
With the Action 
Straightaway ‘Helping’ the Other Man, 
The Word 
Next moment ‘Bringing Cheers’ to the Other Man and 
The Thought 
100% ‘Wishing’ for the good of the Other Man! 

But with the ‘self interest’ within just preventing me from doing that instantly 
The thought was 
A ‘Planned Approach' to Manage’ the situation, 
The word was 
A ‘Lip Sympathy’ followed by ‘Mild Deceptive Criticism’ and 
The action was 
A simple ‘Wash off’ well protecting myself from being ‘Pointed Out!' 

The Precious Moment passed thus with 
A ‘Lifetime Golden Opportunity’ permanently ‘Lost’ 
The next moment sincerely rolling in front 
With no escape seen from
'The Relentless self interest!'

IT'S TRUE.. GOD DOESN'T GIVE EVERYWHERE!

On that cool Sunday morning hrs, the rich man of the town in early fifties was in his comfortable easy chair surrounded by a few young visitors each praising the man saying..

  • “Sir! I worked with you some time back and you used to constantly drive me in my work......... 
Because of all that, today I am........ Your grace and goodness Sir!"
  • “Sir! You used to constantly advise and guide me on how to develop one's own business...... 
Because of all that, today I am...... Your grace and goodness Sir!"
  • "Sir! Long back when I was with you a few times, you used to constantly advise me to get into a good investment planing and grow my limited monies.. 
Because of all that, today I am...... Your grace and goodness Sir!"
  • “Sir! Thru' you, I developed the right contacts in the right time with prominent people in our town.. 
Because of all that, today I am...... Your grace and goodness Sir!"
  • "Sir! I wanted to express myself as...... in my life.... and you often used to encourage me there saying if there is a will, there is a way. 
Because of all that, today I am...... Your grace and goodness Sir!"

Just then, there was a call on the mobile phone.

"Excuse me!”

The rich man said and went out to answer the call. No doubt, the voice was mild and soft but some tones were quite harsh in between..
  • “I asked you to search for a good job with your qualification and start working hard instead you wanted to do that business..
  • I made elaborate plans for you in that line but you quickly left it in the middle, chose to invest in financial institutions and make money..
  • I gave you good advice on how to invest the finances in a wise way but there too you never showed interest, left in the middle and decided to work in the political field..
  • I introduced you to prominent people of our town but you never showed a interest beyond in that line and decided to exploit your music skills and grow in that line..
  • Seeing your interest, I provided all the back ground required for that but there also, you soon fizzled out and left people who expected a lot from you totally disappointed..
Now you again want these monies and how long I can supply like this? I am totally at a loss to know how to make you a man of some substance.. Tell me truly..

What are you today in your life all by yourself?"
