Dreamer in me.. Seeking Answers!! Believer in me.. Finding them!! :)

The Blessing

“Why am i Still Living? What Wrong did i do to deserve such a Life?” asked Abhimanyu to his most loved Deity Lord Ganesha. Abhimanyu, A 9 year old Boy who now lived with his Maternal Grandparents in Nasik after losing his Entire Family when he was just 3, including his Parents to the infamous Earthquake in Bhuj, Gujarat. He miraculously was found unscathed while the Bodies of the Dead were being recovered from the Debris.

Thereafter His Custody was given to his Maternal Grandparents, who Loved him and tried to Raise him well, But He had undergone a lot of Trauma for a 9 Yr. Old Child and Depression, Fear of Acceptance and in the Process was losing out on the Ability to comprehend things. He would often stay away from Peers and had little or No Real Friends but for His Favourite Deity: Lord Ganesha

48e7be74924f777b0f96e7e81765d88d

So Everyday, He would visit the Ganesha Temple and talk for hours with the Shrine. He would complain about his Life and how he felt like a Burden to his Ailing Grandparents who lived with Bare Minimum Earnings but yet try to Give the Best of Everything to him. Lord Ganesha would simply smile back at him, or so he thought and often this resulted in him pleading and yelling at the Lord.

This day was different though, After he returned back from the Temple. He helped his Grandma make the flour for the Chapati, Ate with them, Drank the Milk and went to Sleep. But he kept tossing and turning and was unable to sleep, So he got up to have some Water. There he saw Lord Ganesha holding a Glass of Water for him. Ganesha said “Drink this my Friend!” Abhimanyu took the Glass from him and Drank the same. The Water tasted different as if soaked in Sweet nectar.

Abhimanyu said “I Hope this isn’t Sweet Poison to take me with you! I can’t go right now, Don’t want to leave my Nana-Naani at this age like this. I want to Do something in Life for them, before you take me away.” Ganesh ji smiled back and said “I know! Am not here to take you, You are my Dearest Friend and have lots to do in this Life for yourself, Your Family and The Society at Large. I just came to speak to you. One on One.. Man to Man talk”

Abhimanyu laughingly said “Ganesha you are only Half a Man and i am just 10 (Was his Birthday). So the Man to Man talk doesn’t really fit.  But Yeah, i would love to talk to you.” So Ganesha held his hand and took him outside the House where a Bright Red Bajaj Chetak was waiting for them. Lord Ganesha took the Handle and asked Abhimanyu to jump on to the back seat. Then Ganesh ji’s Scooter flew and  took him back in time to Bhuj just before the Earthquake and showed him a Visual of How His Parents saw the Ground shake and they vehemently ran to him, put him in a trunk with a Small Hole and took him to the Open Garden of their home as mortar collapsed and gave the Trunk a full blown push before they collapsed under the Debris.

Abhimanyu’s whole world spun in front of his eyes and he realized how much love and affection he was showered to when he was a Child. Ganesh ji asked “You really think you have a Bad Life? Come with me.” Then Ganesh ji took Abhimanyu to another Distant place where Abhimanyu saw Young Orphans being drugged, abused and Organs being removed and forced to become beggars by Mafia syndicates. Abhimanyu asked “You’ve opened my Eyes, My Lord but Why do you allow Butcherism by Mortals?” Ganesh ji replied “I Don’t play a Role in anyone’s Karma. The Consequences of Every Action is a Reaction. Their Karmic score will determine their Life ahead.”

Now Ganesh ji parked his Scooter atop a Tree in a nearby Forest and told Abhimanyu to ask Questions which he was carrying in his Heart. He would like to answer them all today.  Abhimanyu fell short of Words initially but then asked Ganesh ji “What Wrong did my Parents and Family do to deserve such a Death and why am i still Living? What is the Purpose of My Life?” Ganesh ji replied “Karma as i said is the Answer my friend, Not just of this Life but some are a Part of One’s Past Life too. You are living because you died at a Tender age in your Last Life when you tried saving a Baby Elephant from being Eaten alive by a herd of Crocodiles. The Mother Elephant was crying for Help as She was caught in a Deep Swamp and you heard it.” The Whole scene played out in front of them where a Young Boy jumped at the Head of a Crocodile and Threw Stones at them so the Baby Elephant got a Free side and he stomped his way out of the herd of Crocodiles but The Child fell in the Water in the Process and got Eaten by the Crocodiles.

Ganesh ji said Life is all about Karma and You are my Friend and Chosen one, Channel your Energy towards the Greater Good for People and see how this Life that you sometimes Curse would become the Most Beautiful thing in the World. Abhimanyu said “Will you Guide me?” Ganesh ji replied “Always!”

Abhimanyu that Night at a tender age found his Purpose in Life and a Friend for Life: Lord Ganesha.

If Your Friend has done these Few things for you in this Zindagi.. Never Let Them GO!

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”~ Lisa Kleypas, Blue Eyed Devil

If Your Friend/ Philosopher Or Guide does any or all of these things.. Never Ever Let them go:

  • Calming Influence : Even a Well Balanced person occasionally loses their cool. We all have the ability at times to become very emotional and tense owing to sometimes intrinsic reasons and sometimes because of what’s going on around us and we cant quite control it. If you’re feeling anxiety, rage, sadness or just heavy stress, a person who can see you struggling and knows how to COMFORT you is a definite keeper
  • Understanding Your Humour: Laughter is a quintessential part of life, not only as a delightful cherry-on-top during good times, but also as a way of coping when things are hard or going badly. If you have someone in your life who understands your particular brand of HUMOUR be it Sarcasm, Rhetoric or Burn filled and can add, share, compliment and have fun in the laughter with you, hold on tight!
  • Common Interests/Hobbies: Everyone needs some HOBBIES in their life. The Fun and leisure activities we do outside of work and career allow us to unwind and release stress and tensions that build up from the pressures of the daily grind.When your Friend can be a part of these passions and activities and enjoy them right along with you, everybody wins.
  • Mutual Respect: Respect for each other is the trivial part of any good bond and relationship. It is built by honesty, reliability and trust. If both can truly RESPECT each other as people, even in the heat of a difficult argument or stubborn disagreement, the relationship will be Strong and almost unbreakable.
  • Accountability: In a Friendship, One should always do their best to support the other and embrace whatever their Friend chooses to do, but sometimes the best and healthiest way to support someone is to be HONEST with them and call a spade.. A Spade. A True Friend would never lie to you simply to spare your feelings or avoid confrontation. If someone really loves you, they’ll call you on your Possible Mistakes, and if you really love them back, you should be receptive to their criticism and know that it comes from True caring and concern.

am writing about Jug in my life for the #DearZindagi activity at BlogAdda. The Person surely knows who he is.. 😉

THIS Is The Simple Reason Why We Lose Interest In People Who Show Too Much Interest In Us

So, why then do we feel uninterested in the partners who see this “Better ness” in us? The answer lies in the depths of our being.

partner-unsure-adoption-couple-2160x1200

On a very deep level, there’s a small part of each one of us that believes we are not worthy of being loved. It is this insecurity that makes you place a lesser value on yourself.

So, when a person desires this lesser value, we naturally place a lesser value on them.

The natural train of thought eventually reaches the conclusion of “there must be something wrong with you for liking someone like me.”

We do not live comfortably with this mindset. We live comfortably in “the chase” of someone else, or in the completely rejection and heartbreak by someone else.

That is where we feel most at home. For whatever reason, we’d rather seek out rejection than have affection from a lesser-valued person.

As we can see, the natural inclination to avoid those who are interested in you happens for two main reasons: the need to better our offspring by partnering with someone who is “better,” and our own insecurities about how worthy we are of love.

The even bigger question now is: how can we use this understanding to better our lives and well-being? Having learned this, how many of us will start to give others a chance in lieu of rejection?

The ego is a hard thing to overcome, but if we can, we open ourselves up to a whole new realm of thinking.

How many of us will strive to overcome insecurities for a chance at happiness?

A Wonderful Little Parable About Self-Belief

Once a businessman was up to his neck in debt, and could not see a way out of his situation. He was in the red to his creditors and his suppliers were demanding payment every day.

He went to the park to distract himself from his worries but all the same unhappy thoughts remained stuck in his head. The man dropped his head into his hands, casting about in his mind for ideas which could save his business from bankruptcy. Suddenly, an old man appeared before him.

“I see that something is troubling you“, he said. ”Won’t you share your thoughts with me?”

The businessman told him about his problems, about his lack of money and his bank’s refusal to give him some extra credit to promote his business. The old man listened without interrupting, and then said:

“I think that I can help you.”

He asked for the businessman’s name, wrote out a cheque and put it in the surprised man’s hand.

“Take this money. I’ll meet you here in exactly one year, and you can then give it back to me”.

The man didn’t have time to say anything before the old man had melted into the crowd.

The businessman looked at the cheque. In the space for the amount of money, the old man had written out a sum of $500,000, and below it was written the name — “John D. Rockefeller.” John D. Rockefeller. One of the richest men in the world!

“I can do away with all my problems in an instant!” he thought. But instead, the businessman decided to put the cheque in his safe. The thought of its existence alone gave him the strength he needed to work out a way to save his business.

With renewed vigour, he closed some good deals and managed to have the terms of his payments extended. He was able to make some big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and began earning money again. And a year later, he returned to the park with the cheque.

At the appointed time, the old man appeared. The businessman was ready to give the cheque back and to tell him about his successes, when a nurse came running over and grabbed the old man.

“I’m so glad I finally caught him!“ — she exclaimed. ”I hope he didn’t bother you. He often runs away from home and tells people that he is John D. Rockefeller”.

The businessman just stood there feeling stunned. Throughout the preceding year he had been busy as a bee doing business, buying and selling, in the belief that at any moment he could use that half a million dollars to save himself if the situation demanded it.

Suddenly, he realised that it wasn’t money — real or imagined — that had turned his life around. It had been his new self-belief that had given him the strength to achieve all that he wanted.

So remember, be proactive. At the crucial moment, belief in yourself always plays a key role.

P.s.: The Story isnt mine, i read it on Social media and found it riveting to post it on my blog.

Happy Women’s Day! A Gentleman’s Perspective..

106268__art-steven-donnet-willow-girl-tree-crown-leaf-sunset-plants-hill_p.jpg

Some wonder where her Magic lies?
She’s Cute but not the Uber Glam types.
Some attempt to ask her but barely pay attention
Sexism for “The Few” has become the convention.

The Reach of her Arms, The Sway of her Hips..
The Stride in her Walk, The Smile on Her Lips.
She walks into a Room, All Calm as you may please
Some Stand Others want to fall down on their Knees.

The Tap of her Heels, the Flow of her Hair
Men try humbly to show her how much they care.
They say a Woman should be two things: Classy and Fabulous
Why then can’t Men be Sweet, Caring and Chivalrous?

I as a Man apologize for some Morons you may encounter
The Perverts, the Cat callers, the Jerks and the Stalker
Please don’t generalize.. Not all Men are the same!
A Select few cannot bring The Entire Race to Shame.

We’ve all graduated with our Values and Come a long way
The Person we all were yesterday introduced us to Our Today.
In the End I’d like to Quote .. Bill Maher
“Women cannot complain about men..
Until they start getting better taste in them.”

Proposal at Moonrise!!

Soothing Breeze, A Glistening Beach,

The Dancing water and the Shining sky.

I raise my Toes to their utmost reach,

To Dance without a tune.. Don’t ask Why.

Flower petals in such Fresh Flowing Winds,

The Setting Sun & The Rising Moon..

look like Butterflies flapping their Beautiful Wings,

I eagerly await the Time, to meet you soon.

You shine in My Vision of you with all your Light,

Your Smile makes me adore your incoming wink..

My Love for you instantly takes a flight,

Like a White orchid suddenly turns blushing pink.

Even from a distance, You still amidst the crowds.

My Heart beats faster as the sun bids adieu

I collect my thoughts, I choose my words..

For I Wanna tell you today, How much I Love You!

Movie Review: Brothers

hqdefault

Went to watch ‪#‎Brothers‬ (the Indian Adaptation of ‪#‎Warriors‬) yesterday. Karan Malhotra’s blessed with a good casting as Akshay Kumar & Sidharth Malhotra are perfect for their roles. What the Director has conveniently forgotten inspite of increasing the screen time is the detailing of the Sub Plots and has left most of it to be in auto understand mode by the viewer. Shefali shah plays a pivotal small role and enacts the varying emotions well.. Jacqueline fernandez has a small role too and she has improved in her acting skills evidentally.

All in All Jackie shroff, Akshay kumar & Sidharth malhotra carry it well. The Actions sequences are Nice and their Contrasting Styles of MMA have been shown well too. The Kareena Kapoor Khan Song is a Total Waste of Time and is disgustingly choreographed and its almost right before the interval.. so queue up for refreshments a little early to avoid the queue tongue emoticon. The Music is plain ordinary, and Sapna jahan and the brother’s anthem are the only ones which are listenable. The Screenplay & visualization of Sapna Jahan song has been done wonderfully though, all credit to the director.

All in all.. a Decent One Time watch and is definitely not as bad as the critics have made it to be.. but nowhere close to the original in terms of gripping screenplay.

“Every Day You Play” By Pablo Neruda

Spring-Cherry-Blossoms-in-Japan-1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every day you play with the light of the universe.
Subtle visitor, you arrive in the flower and the water.
You are more than this white head that I hold tightly
as a cluster of fruit, every day, between my hands.

You are like nobody since I love you.
Let me spread you out among yellow garlands.
Who writes your name in letters of smoke among the stars of the south?
Oh let me remember you as you were before you existed.

Suddenly the wind howls and bangs at my shut window.
The sky is a net crammed with shadowy fish.
Here all the winds let go sooner or later, all of them.
The rain takes off her clothes.

The birds go by, fleeing.
The wind. The wind.
I can contend only against the power of men.
The storm whirls dark leaves
and turns loose all the boats that were moored last night to the sky.

You are here. Oh, you do not run away.
You will answer me to the last cry.
Cling to me as though you were frightened.
Even so, at one time a strange shadow ran through your eyes.

Now, now too, little one, you bring me honeysuckle,
and even your breasts smell of it.
While the sad wind goes slaughtering butterflies
I love you, and my happiness bites the plum of your mouth.

How you must have suffered getting accustomed to me,
my savage, solitary soul, my name that sends them all running.
So many times we have seen the morning star burn, kissing our eyes,
and over our heads the gray light unwind in turning fans.

My words rained over you, stroking you.
A long time I have loved the sunned mother-of-pearl of your body.
I go so far as to think that you own the universe.
I will bring you happy flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.

Pablo Neruda
