jiya laage naa..


this amazing song of talaash has intrigued me every time i have heard it..

it reminds me of the feelings that also come in the bhajans’ reciting the feelings of radha for her krishna. one of the stories i read the another day had rukmini serving radha food and later on milk.

it was krishna whose devout bhakt radha is, comes to know, that something was left to be placed in her plate even when we think he isn’t there!

when finally radha had food and is going to sleep, rukmini comes to krishna. he can’t sleep as he says radha has milk before going to sleep. so rukmini acknowledges. she goes and gives radha a glass of milk and comes back. even then krishna cannot sleep. she sees that and queries again. he says that radha should have hot milk.

so she rushes again and come back. now this time krishna’s palm has burn marks. she asks why? krishna says you gave her boiled one, so i took some heat of it.. wow..

Jiya laage na tum bin mora….

is that what bhakti is all about, and is what shraddha results in, brilliant and amazing.. 🙂

apan kon?


 आपण कोण ह्याचा शोध कायम सुरु असतो..
 
मला हा प्रश्न कायमच पडत आलाय .. साला आपण कोण.. कुठून आलो आणि काय करतो आहोत? त्यातच मध्ये शोध लागल्याप्रमाणे पाणी फक्त पृथ्वी वरच पडू शकते.. ! (सौजन्य नासा) इकडे तिकडे कुठेही यान पाठवा चैला शोध तोच.. आपले पूर्वज लेकाचे उगीच काही खोटा नाही बोलून गेलेत! काखेत कळसा आणि गावाला वळसा. असो. इतरही बाबतीत त्यांना जरा उशीराच कळते.
 
जन्माला येऊन असे काय विशेष केले आहे? इकडे तर च्यायला  जगणंही महाग होत बसलंय दिवसेनदिवस आणि सामान्य गरजांच्या मागे धावता धावता आपण पूर्ण संपून जातो आहोत. पण एक प्रश्न पुन्हा सतावतो. 

मागच्या अनेक पिढ्यान पिढ्यान कडेही तेवढेच २४ तास होते…त्यांनीही बरीच कामे केलीत आणि बरच आयुष्य जगले… अगदी निवांत ..

कुठेतरी भाऊगर्दीत  आपण आपली गती तर वाढवतोय पण तो आनंद कुठे तरी मिसिंग आहे, असे कायम प्रत्येकाला ह्या न त्या क्षणी वाटतच असते.


Cant wait to see Nolan movies after watching Inception a lot of times. this one is worth the wait as its the last movie of the trilogy.

Next would be the Superman (Man of Steel) in 2013, where Nolan comes back in the role of producer.

Hope that Inception has a sequel.

(Warning: mild spoilers throughout — though the film has enough big surprises that you need not worry.)

A gang of thugs has just looted the Gotham City Stock Exchange and crashed out on motorcycles, hostages in tow. The police are helpless as they pursue the miscreants into a tunnel. Suddenly, the tunnel goes dark. A familiar vehicle with monster-truck wheels, driven by a man in black cape and cowl, has joined the chase. Batman is back. An older cop observes the action, smiles and says to a rookie, “Boy, you’re in for a show tonight, son.”

The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR), Christopher Nolan’s mesmerizing climax to his trilogy reboot of the DC Comics character, is a show, all right. But not in the way of the standard summer action fantasy. Although his movie contains elaborate fights, stunts, chases and war toys, and though the director dresses half his…

loads of data, here and there


data

data

last week, visited the doctor, as i was completely down with dehydration and fever. a woman visited the dr. – who took out his prescriptions for the last few weeks  and brought him new books – for new ones. a thought came to my mind, that the data might have been taken just for some form of computer entry and the prescriptions were being computerised somehow of all the doctors in that specific suburban area. then came the thought of a database – that the data collecting company would be making of – combinations of the medicines that the doctor was offering to the patients.

what if the doctors in that area are somehow sponsored by some medical company which gathers this data, makes these medicines with different names than those of its competitors and tries to sell its own products instead of some competitors being sold. this is what makes the word “data” such handy thing to be @ hands.

recently (last year – might be) i had read some articles in which chips were being inserted in the arm bands to check the blood pressure, heart rates etc… again loads of data.  times seems close when computers will tell you what to eat and what not… Sir, your bp is high please remove the salt in your plate..

somehow i think with advancements in technology we are missing the simplicity we had before.

leap of faith


the ways in which the followers and masters differ in their attitude lies in their application of a thought – a giant leap of faith. the masters are so overwhelmed with the thought of surrendering fully, they have already give up the thought of i and then they do not get into another thinking of their own self ~ be it be any goals or desires.

this might differentiate the followers from their master’s.

the desire.

one more birthday!


 

 

Birthday thought

Birthday thought

 

this year has been has been full of revelations, taking turns and rounds – never would have thought of. unexpected turns here and there, haven’t found a direction yet for the future yet after passing a hard-earned exam and have found a soul mate for life on the other hand. holding hands on hands together committed for facing the unexpected.

life is such a journey that the path is so undefined and with no course offered on hand for facing the things it teaches us. was listening to steve jobs’ lecture the last two days. his 3 points great to listen and interpret. his leaving college and attending calligraphy classes, which till date have influenced the keyboards on which we type, his other point of love and loss and finally – straight forward views on death – as a change agent. i am not trying to go on the philosophical side, but yes, his views are so good that you sometimes think – the amount of huge literature he must have gone through – of various religions – to follow the same path.

i am yet to celebrate today’s day, but in time, return on this post to what we think about our lives and how do we live them. we as people are like dots connected here and there, meeting and leaving after some time. i am so influenced by a thought in high school, teaching us of being mortals – that we – humans are like the planks of wood floating on the water. we are together till we are, but our directions change as soon as the under current changes the flow of the woods floating above the surface.

i feel grateful, to those who have kept their faith in the goodness in me, and those who forgave me every-time for my mistakes. i never wholeheartedly intended to repeat those mistakes, but like always have unconventional views on getting them corrected as soon as my view on them matches yours.

my belief’s have been hammered all those times from when i have carried them and i never know if they will stay with me till the end. good times are less and normalcy sucks our life most of the times. yes, that’s true. as people try to be above normal lives, they in turn try to keep on pretending not what they are. that’s where my fiancé has given a turn around in my thoughts by asking to be – what i am ‘actually’ and never carrying the load of being what i want to be.

status changes from single to committed to married and i guess, changes will continue to come and go. as we are already happy to take what is good and leave the bad things back, hope that this change takes the life to yet another level. 

well, whats your say then about your life till now…. feeling satisfied? one friend asked. i said yes and no. yes, because i took the way it came and no, ‘coz it would have been different if the key strokes to paint it in my way would have been completely different. here’s where we lack in knowledge and technology as we cannot draw the points in the front direction but we can connect them backwards. that’s human and so are we – like puppets in the hands of the Lord. what happens – happens as per his wishes – that’s all we can say.
