HBD

Last time I think I celebrated (did I?) my birth day without my family was in 1998, the year that I came to US. 12 years after here I am; alone and aloof (wrong word!). Wife and kids are having their time in India with Kids specially having tons of fun.

Well, everyone has their resolutions over new year and I normally (usually, actually generally) don’t. So while messaging my wife this morning I promised her that I would do some things that I suppose to and be a good dad (which I am :). Conviction is a step away from realization, and when they both meet together, you need will power to stay put. So, for a change I make my resolution over my birth day that I will always try to do my best, for the best. God had been kind, very kind and bestowed me with everything I wanted and I did not, so no complaints there. If there is a way to become a good human, I guess all my strengths should be there, which I will try to. If there is something that I still wish to ask God, it would be me.

My wife always tell me that I have so much that I can give to my family and specially my kids. Yes, I do have a lot that I can give and I haven’t. So for a change it is time that I give gifts on my BD. One that stays for ever and one that lasts for ever, LOVE.

May God bless me on my BD to share only my LOVE to all others. Happy Birth Day to me 🙂

Feeling sad

It is with great regret I let you know all that my close cousin’s husband had died in a road accident yesterday night. He was on a bicycle on his way to the university when a car hit him. Initial reports say that he might have died on the spot. My cousin with whatever little help that she is getting is still standing bold and coming up to the terms. Its takes great panache of a brave face from her when she called me last night to convey the sorrowed message to me. I salute her fortitude and can only say that I am here in need.

May God bless his soul and give  her peace and tranquility.

Happy and Diwali

DeepavaliWondering myself why? Isn’t it Happy Diwali rather than ‘Happy and Diwali’. Tapping my heart I was confirmed that my instincts were right. I wish Happiness and Diwali for all the citizens across the globe.

While the festival symbolize the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, it is a true festival in every sense. Never I have been more happy in my life than I am now, which makes me to question myself, why? If life has any meaning other than breath, bread and body, I had the bliss of being a human being trying to make things ‘simple’. Nobles of past have shown us myriad paths to self-victory which are seldom put in action by us. Blessing everyone Happy Diwali will deny the wishes to be happy forward. My last article of Diwali reflected how I missed my homeland and its festivity, but mature since then, made me feel what true happiness really is. Without driving the darkness inside, celebration will be a myth and festivity shall only adore pale colors. Diwali is about us, it is about looking at the light and think of what greater are we than that lifeless lamp, which still shine bright to drive out darkness.

Vivekananda reiterated the fact that the source of all miseries is thinking about others. He did not mean that we be selfish. His emphasis of philosophy was to think that we are many but one and our actions often gives out its results taking the form of ‘others’. There is no greater thing that God and God is in all good things. I have been fortunate to have ‘Sat-Sang’ which forms the onus of becoming a complete human.

So I wish you once again my fellow beings that be happy and celebrate Diwali. Every light that you lit today shall only shine and every deed that you do from today shall only do good.

Ah! The Bliss..

I am proud that I share a commonality with this guy. We are both born as Indians and this could happen only in India. Its been long time since I have heard anything this outstanding. More than a protege this kid’s voice is golden and godly. Hemanth is a little champ performing on stage for ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champions’. Watch it for bliss.

Potpourri

SorrowMy heart is with those who have lost their near & dear in Southern India’s floods. I am guilty of not extending any sort of help other than lambasting the officials supervising the relief efforts. Nevertheless good Samaritans from across India have done their citizen duties helping the victims and extending their faith to keep them going. I wish mother nature had little more sympathy on those poor people, which eventually she did, and bless them with crops and fruit.

Chinese aggression as I have mentioned in my twit reminds me Nehru’s description in one word, backstabbing. Powerdavid-and-goliath hungry dictators ruling that land will someday learn the lesson of aggression and more than anyone, history shall repeat again and teach them a message. A wise man shall accept a strong nut than a weak wise. Their identity as a modern nation very much in debts to Nehru’s protege and it seems to me that people who have forgotten their past never will have a future. I am waiting for the time to give the answer!

Terrorist brief siege at army headquarters in Pakistan was the most funniest news I read in recent times. Please forgive me as loss of life is loss of everything for some people. suicidalHowever, terrorists storming army headquarters to me was like terrorists attaching terrorists, which bound to happen one day. You can only wait for the snake to bite you when you milk it for a while. Pakistan’s state policy of ‘sponsored terrorism’ will one day eat itself. It’s like an AIDS patient threatening others that they’ll have sex with others unless they confine to their ideas. The patient will die one day, a MISERABLE DEATH.

Gas prices are on rise in US forecasting greater demand in travel. Someone really thinks that people are brainless dumb asses. gas_prices_largeNever in the history of this great country there was a demand for gas more than in summer. With unemployment closing in on two digits, people are trying to get to all corners to cut the costs. Some greedy bastards set the ‘future’ prices on a speculated demand, which is nothing short of what I call terrorism (inflicting greater pain on mass population without provoking and reason). The Government shall first have to tackle these financial terrorist before running after those whom I think deserves the least of the attention at this time.

Happy Birthday to Truth

MahatmaNo man with the same skin and soul will ever walk on this planet again like the ‘Mahatma’. A true inspiration, lived his life dedicated for peace and truth, he lives amongst every one of us whenever we think of our souls. Other than the GOD himself, I do not think that there is any other soul ever lived who is more simpler than this great ‘Atma’. Mahatma Gandhi has exemplified his deeds following the path of ‘ahimsa’ and personified the world with his thoughts and words.

He is the ‘father of the nation’ to the most vibrant of cultures in the history of mankind and he is the beloved ‘Bapu’ for many a billion. If simplicity is anything but truth, only Gandhi proved why he is the only ‘Mahatma’ to have born as a simple human and spirited us with the great gift of ‘Satya-Agrah’.

It takes for one an entire life, it takes one an entire culture and it takes for one an entire civilization to have achieved what Mahatma has done without sweat and without fear and with a smile that speaks only truth in his life. Very few in our history can cast a shadow as big as Mahatma, one where feels relieved from lies of life, misery and unhappiness.

Mahatma Gandhi has experimented with truth and finally prevailed like no other. He is no GOD but no less, as the GOD himself wonders how he creates such a soul on this planet.

The greatness of this man is his simplicity.

Happy Birthday to MAHATMA, the MAHAN ATMA.

Happy Birthday to me :)

This is the 10th draft probably making up for publishing. Wanted to share so much stuff but in the end, I thought to stay happy and just not try anything else. Lakshmi gave a wonderful and memorable start and I know she would end that with the same.

I wanted to wish myself a very Happy Birthday for not what I am but for what you all feel I am. Love or hatred, friendship or enemity, close or far, big or small, it doesn’t matter. The world around me enough colorful and lovable to cherish and think about everyone who were and in my life and I pray for them and the rest of the world to be only Happy.

Happy Birthday to Me 🙂
