The Boat with a Stern Ring

Once upon a time, there lived a family of four, a husband, Eric, wife, Isabel, a baby daughter, Eline and Eric's mother, Naomi in a very beautiful place. Eric, a  scientist, was researching on a certain species of plant which helps in curing all diseases. He bought a plot of land with a small house and a large area of paddy fields on one side and a small rivulet on the other side. It was a beautiful perfect setting for a family to grow  and a calm place for his research. The family lived happily there.  One day, Isabel had severe bleeding and Eric immediately took her to the hospital leaving behind his daughter in the care of his mother. His mother assured him, "Son, don't worry, everything would be okay, just get to the hospital with care." Bidding his mother both goodbye, Eric left for the hospital in town, with Isabel. Naomi, knelt down near Eline's bed and started praying, but suddenly, she felt water on her legs. "Holy Heavens!!!! what is happenin

"Oh!!!!! Jooji Boooji"

Today, there was a christening, you know, the christians give their initiation to christianity through christening. The child is unaware of any such process, just the discomfort of having to be petted "Oh!!! Jooji Booji", Oh!!!! Nnnnnnuuu Nnnnnuuu", etc..etc.. by the whole lot of friends and relatives. But for the parents, it doesn't matter, because its a tradition passed on from generation. And the people who started, our forefathers, they knew one thing. If they hadn't take the initiative, then we would not be, what we are. People think and criticize, regarding initiating babies into a religion. They should be given the freedom to choose, what religion to take and all the reasons of not to initiate. I do not know, what would be your mentality. But I am on my ancestors side. Initiate immediately after birth. Can I ask a question? Why do our parents save money? Why do they build houses? Why do they give education, from when we are toddlers? Why do we tak

The Roundabout

One of my friends lost her family due to certain circumstances which could be termed, thrown out of home. They burnt her certificates and no money to survive. She became literally alone in the streets. I do not know, how she survived, but after several years, I met her and she was a changed person. I was expecting a depressed person, but to the contrary. She was at peace with herself, no hatred or no hurt. When I asked, how she became such a person? She replied to my utter surprise. “I came to this world with nothing but my body and I return with nothing, not even my body. My family helped me understand it and I would be thankful to them. Why should I cry for something, which I don’t own. Why should I run in amassing money? Why should I crave for my own home? God provides me, what I need. He knows me better than I know myself. If I need a home, He will give me. If I need a dress, he would cloth me. If I feel hungry, the food would reach me. The only thing I need to do is, keep my

The Dragon Warrior

Yesterday, I happened to watch the movie Kungfu Panda. There are three things that touched me. The first one, which really awed me was the selection of the dragon warrior. And the person selected was a Panda who had no knowledge of the basics of kungfu whose main focus was eating. But still he was selected, why? Is it really possible? The answer is always an emphatic Yes. That is what we should know. In the real world, we all are born with lots of drawbacks, that is natural, but there is a gem within us, which has been camouflaged by our flaws. We always are focusing on our flaws, which makes us the imperfect beings. But we get to unwrap the gem through circumstances which we face on a daily basis. Years back, if someone had told me, Meena, you would have your own blog and you would write several books. I would reply, without an iota of doubt, "In another life, not this one." Really I did not like to write because, I was not good at writing. but circumstances, made me to

Pass On Your Effect

For me, I am glad I am a human being. Not because, I can do several antiques, but we hold more power than any living beings. You might be wondering what antiques. Simple, the best way to watch people, have a cup of coffee near a hectic road, with lots of shops, traffic, etc..etc... Then you will get to see the antiques of human beings. While I walk to work, I used to wonder, the topics of thoughts, I cover in a span of twenty minutes. When we meet our foes, friends, so different are my thoughts. When I see food, another set of thoughts. But the funny part is, we don't openly air our thoughts for all to hear, do we. But, without our knowledge, thoughts have taken control of us, are you aware of that? No. But now, its time to take note, its very important that you control your body and mind with your soul, which shows the right direction. How do you know, that soul has upper hand of your body? You would not be angry. No hatred for others would touch you. You would alway

I Have Lost Hope

I do not know, what my aim in life is. I have only tried not to hurt anyone. But still, I do not know, why I was born. Today, I faced death. If I had passed away I would have been really glad, not because I am scared of life. It is because, I have not made any difference in anyone's life. The blog I write was my own growing. It helped me a lot. But, this world is not for me alone. I have to give space for the others. But, when I do that, I wanted to give my best to my fellow people. Not like an Einsteen or Newton or the saints or great people. But like you and me, first family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, then the world. I think, I have failed everywhere. As I write this, my tears want to come off its confinement. My life is a failure. But I wish and pray, that the whole world will be happy and their wishes be fulfilled. Today is my brother's b'day. I wish him a happy birthday. May God bless you. I really hope God sees my dilemma. See you tomorrow. Unti

The War of Kurukshetra

Sorry, yesterday, I wasn't able to talk much, as sleep was trying to overcome me, I had only one thought, bed. But there is one thing, which I don't understand, why we should sleep? Yeah, I know, good for health, etc..But why should nature create such a state for all its living creation on this Earth? Have you wondered it? Well wonder it now. Actually, in the Bible, I have not seen a literal sleeping of Jesus, well there is, this sleeping in the boat part, but other than that, nothing, saying slept at night. But why is it like that? Is it not very important? Hmm.. actually, we will have to think about it. Sleep, hmmmm. I love it. And I feel, you people too like it, don't you? Do you know why? Because we are dead to the world for some time, that means, we get a chance to forget our sorrows, hurts, losses, whatever bad we are facing will be dead for sometime. But, do you know its not healthy? To cover our problems in sleep? Do you know problems are good for

I Became A Singer

O.K. So you might be womdering what miracles happened in my life. Well, don't get too surprised, you can call me a miracle child, oops.. sorry, woman. Do you know that I didn't have a voice to sing. Even now, the voice is same, if I have to sing an octave, I'll have to unseat myself to get that stage, you know, raise from myself up with my sound. No, its no joke. But the sad part is, I love music. I love to sing, anyway I can praise myself, that I do perform well, when in bathroom, that's a commendable achievement, right? Hmmmm. But I didn't want to stop myself there. But where do I start? As far as my resources goes, it starts in the boarding and end in the boarding. So if ever I want to learn a song, who has no talent, then forget the thought. But that is when miracle happened. You know in boardings, everyone are made to sing, whether you liked it or not. Since, I loved it, I gave my best shot. I was selected to sing for the church choir, its shocking, righ

Don’t Insult God

Basically my upbringing was of a spiritual trend than the normal live and jive. Don't think it was purposely done. When a lady is given a convent education, then prayer is a part and parcel of the education, along with all the disciplinary life style. Waking up at 5.30 in the morning and go to church for the mass at 6 was not a very happy ritual then. But rules are always rules, when you are living under their supervision. I have always thought, why prayer. It was so boring. I literally slept through mass, my whole of my growing stage till high school, after that I became seniors, which would not be a good practice. For the outside world, we go to church, pray morning, afternoon, evening. So we should naturally be God's pet. But is it true, that by always praying and going to church or temple or mosque can get you into the good books of God? Well, I can surely say, No. My son, he is averse to long prayers. But his grandma has a long list of prayer, which would natural

To All the Losers, Welcome Aboard

Today, as I was reading a book, I just went through the details of the author. The achievements she had in her life is simply awesome. Seeing her superb credentials, I felt myself smile. I for one has nothing to boast of in terms of academic qualification or professional qualification, but one thing I can say with confidence, wherever I was, whether in school or college or home or at work place, they missed me, which means, to make a difference, we do not need much qualification or big professions. Just use your heart and love what you do. It would be the perfect job, you have ever done. Long time back, when there were not much channels or movies in television, I saw a movie, which really touched me. It was the movie of a heart surgeon. He undertook, the most complicated surgery and never failed. But he never spoke much. But one day a doctor questioned his qualification, which he hadn't any. He was just a cleaner in the military hospital, to tell the truth, he was a slave, who w

To All The Liars Of The World

Continuing Yesterday's venture , of returning to the womb. We have to take several steps. I will give an example, my own example. It was when I was small. I was a joker, which means, I would crack jokes and make everybody laugh and sometimes, it included lies too. But as I grew older, I do not know, how I outgrew out of it, but I didn't feel anything funny about these jokes. I completely stopped it. But the sad part was, the lies returned to me amd was repaid in the same coin. Since I hadn't done much damage with lie jokes, I had to bear only a few but the consequences of it extended my whole life. I had to live with people who only lied or averse to truth. I was shocked. How did this happen? Then I knew, my destimy was conmected to lies. Either, I totally abstain from lies and reach my destination without casualty or churn around this mess of lies I have already created and go on creatimg more of it. You might think, lies is O.K. But believe me, its better to die than

Break the Barrier of Religion

Now, imagine we have thrown away anger, we are without anger, no one can make you angry, Hurrah!!!!!! Hip.. hip.. Hurrah! !!! It's cool, isn't it? Hmmmm.,... it is, but we have a long long way to go. We should break the barrier of religion. You might ask why? I am not saying, you should unfollow any religion. I am requesting you to take the good of all religion. Look at the world around, do you eat only traditional food? Have you ever tasted food other than your countries? The Chinese, the Indian, the french, Italian, American, the whole world habe different traditiomal meal, do you think, by eating other country's food, it would be treason. If so, then it's no use reading this blog. Look at the plants, we graft, we bud, we do genetic engineering to the seeds, why? Because we feel, the original seed cannot produce the desired result, so we take the good qualities from other seeds and merge into the one we have, do you know what that means, our seed is good, b

Daily Life Crucifixion

Yesterday, I told not to be angry, right, bit I missed on one thing, don't think you are solely to blame for anger, people are there for sure, but for those people, you should have the courage to forgive. While I am saying this, I was thinking of the trial, persecution and crucifixion of Jesus. Why was He brought to trial and all the atrocities he had to take. Do you know? Or I will ask differently, did he do any wrong to get a death sentence? We all know, he was innocent, when Pontious Pilate washed his hands off innocent blood. Anyway, we are not going into the reason, but we are going into the attitude of Jesus, the disciple Judas betrayal, all the disciples fleeing away from him, when He needed them most, disciple Peter, denying Jesus, all the people, who saw his miracles, who might have been the recepients of his healing touch or some of His miracle too shouted 'crucify him'. How might have Jesus felt, but He didn't utter a word and before death, He asked God t

What is the speciality of Islam?

Don't think I have left out the religion of Muslims. Do you know the specialty of this religion? It has no idols. Do you know, in christians, the first commandment God gave to Moses is somewhat in that line. Which means, that it is a very important, factor on the facet of findng God. Now the question is, which idol does it signifies, do you know? God didn't mean the idols we make with clay and keep it in chirches or temples. Its the idols we keep it in our heart, that God hates. If I was your lover and if you think of someone else instead of me, be known, you are out of my heart and my life the very next moment. I know it would be the same for you too. Now we have several obsessions, like be coming rich, famous, having a car or whatever, these idols are what we should forefeit, that's what Muslims highlight through their religion, that we all should incorporate in keeping our relatiomship intact with God. I hope you understood what I am meaning. All religioms are

Jesus, the only way to God

Hiiii I know, I have gone a bit weird, when I told that there is a way to reach God. But its true. We have it, the religion of christianity shows it, through Jesus. No I'm not joking, Jesus is the way, truth and light. You might want to know, how, When you read the Bible, there are so many meanings, which is too complicating. But I'm not going into that part. We just need to know the way to God. Its through Jesus. That doesn't mean you will have to die on the cross. No, but you will have to go through the hardships like that of Jesus.I will give an Example Naina is a software engineer, she has family, good job, name, fame, whatever one can dream is all there. She was happy and contented. But one day, one of her software she created to one of the famous companies crashed the whole system, all their entry got lost. She couldn't rectify the problem. She lost her job. Her family ridiculed her. There was no one for her to share her sorrows. She was totally alone.

Why can' We Recreate the Pyramid?

I hope I was able to give some idea about God. And I also ensured that only by uniting theouhh him can you have life energy. Now you might want to know, why do we need life energy. Man has a history of decades of years. Can I ask a question? According to the advancement of technology, which age is livable or tolerable? Paleolithic? Mesolithic? Neolithic? Sorry, I do not the name of this age or is this age? Well the answer would be truly his age, but I differ on that. Look at the egyptian pyramids. When was it built, well, I'm not so sure well nearly, 2500 B. C. Look at ots perfection, even now, with all these technologies, we are not able reproduce it, why. Simple because we have no life energy. Every civilization has some or the other forms of uniqueness, the Romans, the indus or the indians, americans, everyone has so much to boaat of, whoch we canot reproduce, so we are forced to preserve, or conserve it. Its all necause, the people at that time had more life energy,

303 million Gods

I know, its not easy to explain God. If I ask you explain nature, would you be able to do it? You might, but you would not be able to do justice to the real nature, that much multifaceted is our nature, then just imagine, how would we be able to explain its creator. In india, though we have all religions, Hinduism, is the major religion followed. The specialty of this religion is they have more than three hundred million Gods. Shocked, right? You might be thinking, how can that be possible. Well, believe it, its there and I would not negate it too because what they say is true. I'm not joking, eh. The saints and hermits, who follow Hinduism, was in fact, pointing out the different facets of one God. They have Sri Ram, who is a just King, Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, Lord Ganesh, who clears all obstacles, etc...which means, they simplified God for the simple hearted people, but, we on our small thought, misunderstood. So imagine God with more than 303
