EXPLORING

Blinking lights stop

Wifi router says

You are lost

My right elbow rests

On the computer table

Left palm on forehead

Blinking my eyes on

Tells me you are lost in eternity

Continue questioning

Will there be a comeback?

OMG!

Inquisitiveness plays role

Mind wanting to reach out

 Helpless in silence

Voice from inside echoes

If there was a mantra

To make it a comeback

No in vain says another

By then, the lights blink

My eyes stop the blink

Happy as ever

Throwing myself like the net

How a fisherman throws his net

Into the waters

Of the world again

Exploring

Fascinating Jacqueline 

 

 

 

 

 

Jacqueline is one of the most fascinating women I have met. Months back she requested me to have my interview, it so happened I could not give my time to her and requested her to postpone it for a while. She was kind enough to give the time.

My mother was seriously ill and I had to take care of her and back in India during November last year the demonetization of 500 and 1000 rupees currency notes affected business and normal life here. Due to other reasons the interview was getting delayed. But Jacqueline was keen on me to send the answers to her questions. I am really grateful to her for this.

I have learnt from this Blog World through persons like Jacqueline. She being busy, in the other day to day activities of her own, conducts various activities on her blog. A person with such great gratitude is to be adored and thanked. All for the good of others she writes Posts, Poetry, and Links to Blogs. Throws lavish Blog parties frequently, by which so many friends meet and build new relationships. She also gives an opportunity to expose talents and introduces people to a larger audience by conducting interviews.

Now that, its an opportunity to know more about me and my thoughts and my philosophy of life, please go read my interview on her blog as I would want all my friends to go to her and read it. I would not want to re-blog it also for the same reason. I give here below the link.

Please express your thoughts about my blog and about me in the comment box below or on her blog’s comment box. Thanks so much to you all for being with me in my journey.

HEALER OF THE BROKEN HEARTS

Posted on Updated on

This post was published on 11th April 2016

HEALER OF THE BROKEN HEARTS

 

I see

I go astray

For I see broken hearts

Everywhere and wherever

For once they were full of Love

Shaped diamond shinning

Into pieces

Lost its grandeur

Quality not deteriorated

For still the Love persists

Hearts left alone

But full of Love

No doubt

Craving to be again

In the love

Want of response

Self pride pushing back

Wishes & Ambitions sword played

Thus broke Hearts in pieces

I stand no more

To see

Them parted

What meaning love

Shall carry

Continuance of situation

Shall inspire no one

To love in future

Hence I beg

 Give me the Cross, Jesus!Cross Image 1

Oh! Shiva! your TrishulTrishul Image 1

Or something divine

Even a stick

The Power

 Shall work

                                         For I want to be

 Healer of the Broken Hearts

IN THE PURSUIT OF BUSINESS

Posted on Updated on

This Post was Published on 14th March 2015 

   IN THE PURSUIT OF BUSINESS!

Mind Your Business! A popular phrase everybody use. Why? Why only that word ‘Business’ has to be used, maybe some other word could be used; why only that? Is it because everybody knows the meaning perfectly? Is it because one wants to tell that I have some business to do and do not disturb me? Is it because one wants to tell; you do whatsoever you want but do not poke into mine? Is it because the word has become an aversion, because of the interaction with business people in this world, which is a compulsion?
You cannot live in this world without doing Business! If you are not at the receiving end; you are at the giving end. With or without your knowledge you are contributing to the business of this world and are keeping the world moving. This world has to be kept moving you see!
The Hindu order of society called the “Varna Ashrama Dharma – Varna stands for the vocation in which man is living to live a livelihood and Ashram stands for the state in which way the human being is being lived. Both of them are divided into four – In Varna  the Brahmana, (the one who imparts knowledge) Kshatriya,(the one who protects the society) Vaishya ( the one in the pursuit of business) and Sudra  (the working class) . In Ashrama – the Bramacharya ( one who is from childhood to young age having not married), Gruhasta (one who is married and leads a family life) ,Vanaprastha ( one who leads a social life and serves the society) and Sanyasa (one leads a life away from the mundane world, a God seeker) . This order as to how a society has to be lived is prevalent since the dawn of civilization and till today in any part of the world it is the practice. It is not to be confused here that the order is for the Hindu society, it is an order ordered for the whole world. Apart from the two words another word is added – the Dharma which stands for the honesty, loyalty and truth in leading and for the living of the other two. It is important to observe anywhere in this world if this order is not there the whole society is in chaos. The vocation in which one practices has to be in the limits. That society which practices it to the fullest is in peace and cheerfully harmonious. That’s the beauty of the “Varna Ashrama Dharma”.
Coming again to the word Business, which is one aspect of the Varna – the Vaishya – one who is in the pursuit of business, the one who benefits from selling his merchandise and services for a profit. The buyer also knows that he has given a profit for having received the product and services.
In the modern business world we find the selling of merchandise to the customer weather he/she likes or wants it or not. The Ads seen in Newspapers, TV, Radio, Sign Boards and the like; are a proof of the attempt. The customer and consumer may or may not realize of the attempt. The whole idea is to sell and make profits; thereby emptying the pockets of the buyer. The most common advertisement phrases used – ‘Get More Pay Less’, ‘Sale upto 70% Off’, ‘ Buy One get Two Free’ and so on; the idea of the business is justified. On the contrary the opposite happens, either he pays more or the whole buy was unnecessary.
Now, in the society we are living in, we find the business like attitude even in noble professions like medicine and education. It is common to see people talking very casually; that those people in these professions have taken to business. Doctors unnecessarily prescribe medicines and advise various high cost tests, for they get a ‘cut’ (commission) for recommending the tests and medicinal prescriptions. In educational institutes (the Brahmana aspect) collecting huge amounts as donations for admissions from KG classes to PG has been a popular phenomena. Even running of religious Maths; a place of sanctity and where Dharma is to be preached has turned to  be a place of business. The Government Machinery as a whole –the Kshatriya aspect has come down to the level of doing business with people. Bribes, Corruption, Kickbacks and Higher Taxes, have been the order of running a government. The Governments have been a major threatening partner in all businesses having to collect exorbitant taxes; they are the major shareholders in profits only and not in the loss of the business. Whatsoever amounts it collects from various sources but still it is not satisfied, it has a constant watch like the eagle’s eye as to from which source it can pocket money.  If these states of affairs continue, it is an invitation to the no law and order situation. Once the patience of the people gets exploded then there will be disorder, unharmony and violence, which may even lead to civil wars.
The Chaos, The Disturbances, The Terrorism, The Strikes, The Civil Wars, The Bandhs Etc; are all reflections of the disorder in the society. We find it in many countries of the present world.
If this is the order of society; then the next generation will continue to do the same. One has to build on the foundations laid by the elder generations. Every vocation has its own means and limits. The whole society is interdependent and is not to be intermingled. Everyone cannot choose to be In the Pursuit of Business. Those who have chosen have to adhere to the Dharma.

All People mentioned in the Tags come under the Varna, meaning Colour, but not the colour of Skin. It means the vocation that they are in, as mentioned in the Post. 

 I give a Few Links to know more about the Varna Ashrama Dharma. In no way it is to be understood that I am preaching about Hindu Philosophy. In a broader sense it is to be accepted as a universal thought. If lived by all countries, peace shall prevail and shall form a happy society.
