FAILED SYSTEM !

 

When the wet soil of the unkempt village turned muddy, it became very slippery and small puddles formed everywhere. The slope of the broken huts had many holes and gaps those which allowed the raindrops and then the gush of rainfall to go inside the breaking houses…

People awaited for the rain to stop and the continuous downpour had started playing havoc. Destroying the fodder of the cattle, the harvested stock too had got wet and had been damaged.

What could they all do? They couldn’t stop or control arrival nor could decide the departure of the showers.

Science has progressed a lot says everyone; the lone farmer never understood what it meant. If anything can’t be in control of ourself,what advancement is it? Since centuries, he has stood there like other farmers praying for the stopping of the rainfall.

Had the government helped him in shifting the harvested stock to a safer place ,it would not have got wet . Does constructing a cemented or pucca warehouse to stock the grains of the whole village a huge task to do, that till today the heaps of gigantic livestock is kept in the open on the mercy of the rain gods. And when it rains suddenly, it is covered by the soiled torn sheets of polythene and tarpaulins which remind of the torn condition of the country.

What a shame! When governments change, much is talked about policies,amendments ,regulations and enquiries,basic few things if done by individuals and their  collective effort can change the condition of the country forever.

The smallest unit of administration thus which has been created at the Panchayat level of village doesn’t help nor initiate,or the higher levels do not coordinate to let such changes happen in the society leading to complete failure of the whole system of administration.

But government nowadays is run by politicians, who play politics first and then take a step for the welfare of country and humanity.

Little Sonu was yet to understand all this dirty filth of life and he was making paper boats to let the white boats sail in the puddle. His tiny sails floated and went through small puddles, like a ray of hope in the darkened night of the storm.

It has not been long since “Suroor ” was published on Amazon and received a wide and touching response from everyone who has read the book. The thought behind “Suroor ” was intense and it delved deep into insights regarding the journey of a soul which wanders on earth in search of true happiness.

We all are such souls,seeking happiness in every dream,ambition and path of life ,yet we fail to experience the true feeling of it.This book dwells in such a voyage through a poetic form reflecting the real experiences of human on earth.

You can visit the website of “Suroor of the Soul” to read more about the reviews,interviews and updates regarding the topic which we  think has endless and limitless expeditions.

“AMBROSIA”- THE FOOD & DRINK OF GODS

“Ambrosia ” -The eternal food and drink of the celestial beings and gods which makes them immortal.

prspctiveonlife-1181422800-fractal1

Phtocredit:blogedutics.wordpress.com

Well! This is what we have learnt and read through our mythological scriptures. What is so special about this food or drink that makes it so extraordinary and provides immortality? Is there any mixture of potion added or some unique composition which makes it stand out from the rest?

Ambrosia is sometimes depicted in ancient art as distributed by a nymph labeled with that name. In a myth, an opponent to the wine god Dionysus, violence committed against Ambrosia turns her into a grapevine.

Amrita is a hindi or sanskrit word for Ambrosia.

Amrita is produced in the “ocean-churning” samudra manthan legend, which describes how the devas, because of a curse from the sage Durvasawere to lose their immortality. The two sides,god and demons then churn the ocean and create (among other wonderful things) amrita, the nectar of immortality.

Amrit too ,according to yogic philosophy of Indian spiritualism,is considered to be the liquid which is secreted while being in ecstasy and utter bliss ,during the assimilation with god or while having such an experience during meditation which carries the soul to different realm of consciousness.

Ambrosia is considered to be a sweet liquid,similar in taste like honey,referred normally as nectar.

The whole gist reflects the drop of ambrosia or the essence of Ambrosia ,the food, is not a substance that can be used as an intake to get immortality of life.

It is the sweetness that is extracted when we churn out the evils from our body and mind ,leaving behind only the immortal part ie.the soul.It is in fact the drop of nectar which gets secreted when the soul reaches the ultimate level of consciousness and leaves behind the rest to experience the spiritual bliss,which make it immortal.

THE FALLEN DEW!

 

IMG00181-20100407-0922

 

“It has been my destiny” said the morning dew fallen on the surface of a leaf.

“I was so happy there up  in the blue skies, amidst the moving dancing clouds “.

It isn’t same here, even though I can see the verdure closely and can feel the freshness of the veins of thy leaf…

“It wasn’t long before when I had grumbled and had wished to see the earth through my eyes .I desired to feel the beauty with my touch.

As I lie here on your cheeks now, I view the world with a different perspective.”

The leaf fluttered in silence and listened to the outpourings of the fallen dew.

She had been a mute listener, an avid lover of pure feelings and thoughts.

As the drop slid from one end to another, she cupped herself properly ,so that it shouldn’t  not fall down to the rough ground!

The morning dew smiled and clung to the leaf tightly.

She had discovered her real destiny.

BLOSSOMS OF LIFE!

There’s some magic in the air.

The same breeze which blew everyday carries a new fragrance,or is it the old scent of the falling flowers? The advent of the spring with love or the advent of love in silent steps as spring of the season.

Whatever ,the world is a mystical place now, with beautiful chandeliers of the old times,glowing and illuminating the once stranded path.The hanging charismatic memories burning as the lanterns of pendants.

Love blooms again in silence ,the fragrance in the diffused atmosphere is the same,whether years ago,or today .

Time cannot hold back the moment once  it arrives with a blossom .

DAILY PROMPT : LUXURIOUS

What’s the one luxury you can’t live without?

Daily Prompt: Luxurious.

Won’t  it be great when we own everything that we desire for or wish of possessing !!!

Simultaneously it is as boring as a dead bird,for our dreams die the moment we acquire it…Life is a beautiful journey which continuous to excite and enthrall us with its ever surprising bends and incidents.The adventure of crossing such unseen hurdles and reaching the top has its own enjoyment.

Ever thought ,why mountaineering or trekking is exciting and interesting,for we  view the world around us with a  different perspective  while walking on the path . The courage of moving without looking back , the fearless thought of reaching the peak adds to our character a dab of dynamism. The scenery which we perceive  looks  new and charming. We enjoy every level of the difficult path and our each breath to the fullest. The enthusiasm to attain the goal is more while we are struggling to accomplish it than when we actually reach it.

It is this effort that drives us on the path of our life with zeal.The luxuries of life can provide comfort to our physical body for sometime ,but in long run they fail to keep our zest . The essence lies within ,the  happiness that we feel and experience is the most treasured and cannot be bought .It is in fact a luxury.

For luxury doesn’t mean to acquire something by paying money for it. It is n’t the cushion on the cuddling sofa,or the lampshade at the corner,neither the penthouse in a posh locality,nor the swimming pool inside the apartment that gives us immense pleasure…

it is the life ,the fresh breath of life which is the true luxury!

For my soul, ” To breathe freely, is to live in luxury!

It is the sense of excitement that we get from small things which gives us the extreme satisfaction and contentment.

Imagine  what a luxury it would be ,to sleep amidst the tulips,watching the clouds float over the blue skies,the butterflies dancing on the fingers and the soft breeze swaying the hair.A tiny cottage  of wood,where fresh air would be the exotic air conditioner and chirping of birds would be the song of the morning different for every season…

Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Feel

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.—Kevyn Aucoin

“We are what we choose in life,we become what we feel about life”.

An invisible force which touches the innermost core of our heart  and causes upheaval , yet remains unseen, neither can we deny its existence nor can we reject its feel!

DOOR TO THE BLISSFUL OCEAN!

 DSCF3093

The wooden door behind was an architectural delight. The glass pane fitted in it enthralled me.

As I pushed the door ajar, an alley of sophisticated grandeur gleamed.

Facing the beautiful green lawn the tiny drops of pink and yellow“ coloured flowers bloomed in the background.

Beside the quiet swimming pool which attracted every onlooker to have a dip in it the walk along provided a soothing feel. A small gate opened out of the garden and lo! It faced the blue gigantic ocean.

Was life as simple as this?

Passing through an alley of troubles and distractions,or a dark one surrounding our minds with fear would we find a way or a door which would lead to the ultimate blissful ocean!

What a mystical world this is ! yet it shows and provides every disheartened heart a solution to lead it through the darkness onto the path of light.But man is known to be more intellectual than the other living beings on earth ,or it presumes so and hence it tends to lose the connection with the divine which the nature tries to demonstrates through its different ways!

Fear the most common and dreadier situation of a mind and heart which kills the innocence and the liveliness of a soul,ultimately deadens the once energetic and cheerful being!

For fear of money,power,life,health,family,affairs,status,society,love,hatred,insecurity is the leech which would suck the blood out of a person slowly while the individual remains unaware of the reason of the unnecessary pain and ache!

Born free on this land, a mind which has been given a body to take care of has the power to do wonders and which the soul keeps on reminding .

We just need to listen to that voice of ours and concentrate our attention on the power of our mind to achieve the impossible.

The fear of these useless things would vanish in a glimpse and the flame of the liveliness of a person will always remain ablaze!
