No! I dont think “Alike” !!!

Really, I am taken by surprise today after a small chit chat with my neighbor named, hmm lets keep it as “J” . He is in his 3rd and already he has some take on life, which he thinks “Cool”. We started our chat

Me: : Hey, aren’t you playing with them, you like cricket don’t you ?

J: Yeah, I like to play, but you see they are grown ups and they don’t take me..

Me: OK, what about your friends, aren’t they coming now to play with you ?

J: No, they will come only in the evenings

Then suddenly he remembers something and asked me, ” What is those children doing in your terrace on evenings ? ( my aunt takes tuition to some children at evenings )

Me: That’s tuition, they come to study.

J: Do you take that ?

Me: No, my aunt, she is interested in that.

Then all of sudden he got one more question to ask, ” What is your age ?”

Me: I told mine

J: So now you should be Choosing your girl, aren’t you ?

Me: Why do you ask this ?

J: Yeah ! That’s the age to choose your girl, whom you think you will marry.

Me: So, are you interested in Marriage ?

J: ME !! ??? No way, I need to lot of things b4 I get married.

It was a simple talk, but lots to be learned out of this.. First we should be aware that, we are not anymore in so called slow generation, we are marching forward with full speed entering the world with so many types of people. There were so many people who would think alike, but now there are so many people who think differently.

Actually we are in the middle of the battle, we are surrounded by the people who were “thinking alike” and those “think differently”, there are exception to every rule, there were so many thinkers who would think out of box even during those era where every body were thinking alike. They fought, they raised their voice, they supported their type people, but at the end they couldn’t raise their voice beyond certain boundaries.

I can’t take some beliefs which were followed from ages without questioning, I need an answer for it. In our community, we wont do the regular pooja which we do every morning, if there is any death in our family. Are we now against “God” or are we on strike ? Ok, if this is some bad thing happened to our family, then why don’t we do this pooja on even if there is any birth in our family ? Again we are on leave for 10 days … Now is this strike for good things happened to your family ? I don’t get the meaning behind this… Like this there are thousand things, which cant be answered but are followed.

I am not able to question them, since I am surrounded with those “alike thinkers”, I need a break now. I can’t take this. Though, we say ” untouchable”ย  is sin and now we don’t have them anymore, still I see this happening in a community in Mangalore, who call themselves as the proud ones or those who are also called as brahmins. These Tulu speaking people offer lot of homa’s and pooja’s for their own well being, and offer a good lunch or dinner following the ritual, but they don’t allow any “other” cast people to sit along with them and have the food. I have also witnessed it. The boy is asked to get up from the row and asked to come after these people had their food. Isn’t this also an act of Un-touch-ability ?

Still we are way behind doing all this spiritual things, which doesn’t needs any more growth. Its grown to its heights, please stop them. I am seeing them coming down slowly in cities, but I don’t know whats happening there in villages ? Still there are so many groups fighting for their caste and religion, everyone is brainwashed with this name called “Religion” and “God” . Or else why shouldย  group of guys get agitated when Mr. Sachin told he is an Indian ? Still there should be lot of thoughts passed on to this.. will continue..

Another way to look at the world !

You can ask me, why do your post is always on ” Life ” why not something else ? But, I am really fascinated with my life. It comes with new challenges and opportunities, so I always see my life as ” Mysterious One ” . I have tried and trying lots of new stuffs everyday, thinking something would come out of it. I can give some examples like, I never used to read books as such, every rule has an exemption so I used to “Study” rather “Read” my school text books. Now a Days, I see my hands holding new book each day, I am loving to read, even if its just a newspaper, I see it in a different paradigm now. Same way, I used to like photography but now especially today, I am loving it more. May be I will be using this hobby in more serious way. Somethings which I have never ever thought in my life is all coming to me now. I am loved by an angel, I am taken care by them, I am respected for what I am.

Do your commitments with dedication and love, the consequences of it will be like a scarecrow for fools and beacons for wise people. I have no regrets in my life now, I see it with great confidence and purity. I was constantly bogged down looking at my academics, but now I am not worried of it anymore. I know what I have learned in my practical life, I never saw them in school/college text books. I am great full for my angel who is constantly pushing me forward to do lots of new things, which I never used to think of.

I am sure, you will find the angel of your life in the right moment, never get bogged down due to the passing problems, face them with courage . After life is a Journey with a good experiences. Do pass on your take on life, I would love toย  experience them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Divide and Rule !!

Adding many states, is this really a needed one ? This question always peeps in my mind whenever I read the newspaper, since its always in the heading.. Telangana and all those Rao’s fasting or acting like fasting or whatever it means. Some 90+ MLA’s have already resigned and the speaker gets continuous resignation letters. Now even the speaker is thinking on resigning or I dont know if Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy is already resigned.

I also read the news that, there is a severe shortage of food supply to the state since all the means of transportation is on halt. Moreover, always crowded Tirupati Devasthanam is completely crowd-less ๐Ÿ™‚ . Many outstation people are stuck , dont know what to do. Why this hungama all around ? Why can’t we be united ? No stop giving some lame reasons like, smaller the states more well its governed. Its not only the size of the state matters, its also those stupid religious issues matters the most. You need a separate state not just because it can be easily monitored or administered, since your so called religious group stay in that particular area, you need a separate state now. So that you can always win the election or you can always have your own mother tongue and keep uplifting only your community. Whyย  partiality to Telengana why not to Gorkhaland ? Gorkhas are been in this fight for so many years, but their request is not fulfilled, why only for Telengana ?

Some states or part of the states needs importance, if they are really backward, if there is no basic necessities or people are totally ignored, no economic development, then there is really a need to re look at the state level administration, like how these Gorkhas are facing problems. If a place like Hyderabad needs to be separated, I don’t know for what reason? Now almost entire states in India needs to be separated from their home states. Everyone needs a new state, TamilNadu needs a Vanniyar community state, Karnataka needs a separate state in north separating itself from Bangalore, Uttarpradesh needs Poorvanchal, Harit pradesh and Bundalkhand.

So whats the point behind this, is this only for development of India or for “their” own personal wish fulfillment ? What ever is the reason behind, I think we should think about other stuffs which are haunting us like economic development, Global warming, Education in India and so many other quality stuffs ๐Ÿ˜›

Wish to hear some great reviews on this topic, please pour your comments, lets brainstorm this x mas ๐Ÿ™‚

World at its best – But save now !!

There is lot of talks happening at Copenhagen, are we listening to them ? or is anything happening there, few may ask. I would say, more than Copenhagen it should happen at every place, starting from your home. We first need to come out of our ego, that its not only our world there are few others sharing it with us.

Some simple things can change lot of things, we cant see the change unless we change ourselves. This idea of walking came into me few days back and now I am following it very strictly. I agree, this walking dint start on this purpose but now as I am aware of so many things on global warming and its effects, I have started to see the change in me in order to see the change in others. You too can feel the difference when you start walking for the nearby stores or for a radius of 2 kms to 3kms which will save a lot of fuel and carbon emission not only that you can stay fit ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to energy efficient appliances, try using them they make wonders in energy consumption, I have already planned to change my old time tube lights which would roughly consume 40 to 50 watts of electricity to some LED kind of lights which has the same power but which would use 6 watts to 16 watts. There are more better ideas like using CFL ( Compact Fluorescent Lamp) but it would cost little bit extra but worth it !

I am lucky in one way to have my mom at home, she keeps telling me to switch off the fan or lights when not used ๐Ÿ˜› , if you don’t have anyone at home to remind you about this, now start to put this in your “things to do” list immediately. It saves more electricity than you imagine, you know it can light up a whole village.ย  I think,ย  Chennites shouldn’t worry about lights at morning, we always have sun shining on us ๐Ÿ™‚ I always recommend to shake hands with nature and get along with it.

Investing in alternative energy is always better and safe way to live. Think of solar powered heaters, solar powered lights and much more. There are plenty of solar powered appliances, start investing on it than on some hi tech music system or running 3 to 4 air conditioners together.

We have started this war against nature, now we are facing serious threats. Now we should act cleverly. Its easier to destroy this planet but think what will happen to our younger generation or the generations yet to come ? What wrong have they done to us or to this very planet ? Not only to human race, there are so many animals gone extinct because of this.ย  A lot of things can happen, summers getting longer, Crops getting damaged due to sudden change in weather, Earths atmosphere is getting more un-predictable by more rains at some places and lots more like melting of ice and rivers overflowing etc..

we needย  to think seriously, we need to get united and face this than saying,” hey! this is not for us”, some big people are talking something at Copenhagen and they would come up with some solutions. If we don’t co-operate with those leaders then how can they bring some solutions? Just think about it… a food for thought ๐Ÿ˜‰
