Who the Hell am I ? – II

The overwhelming response of my last post kindled me to pen the follow up. I got multitudes of thoughts from my fellow readers towards my contemplation about the invisible matter named God. Few were quite impressive but still not ample to convert me back to theist from the agnostic bracket.

     Recently, I have come across an interesting post in Facebook about Einstein’s ideological thought about God when he was in a school. He debated with his teacher that whether man could see electricity, heat or any other energy forms? Though they are intangible, we believe that they exist because of the realisation of their utilities. Similarly, God is someone who should be felt rather seen. A man who sourced many scientific theories and derived many tremendous inventions had this rational thought about God in him. I don’t even deserve to negate to his ideology. But, on the other hand, thankfully, I believe that he bolstered my thought.

     According to this gentleman who had extraordinary neurons more than the hairs in his head, we could only feel the existence of God. Of course, if there exists someone who could never be seen, what makes the people to impart shape, colour, attire, power and everything to him according to their comforts and convenience? They have groomed this iconic God regionally however they needed him. On considering this fact, I feel Islam is quite an aberrant way.  It never encouraged the worship of god with any identity. But, noetically, God is someone who resides in ourselves. His existence could be termed as “Self-Belief”. Unless we start believing ourselves, we could not start thinking analytically towards our virtually imbibed life. So, as Einstein says, first feel the god in you. Exploring him outside comes in the later part of realisation. But, traditionally, we are cultured to practice it in the reverse way.

     Another interesting response for my previous post says that man is a bundle of energy which could neither be created and nor be destroyed. Only transformation happens from one creature to another. Creator, preserver and destroyer are responsible for the above obligations. The billion euro question is the mystery behind the creator, preserver and eventually the destroyer. Who are those? Whether there are three or only one? Whether they are really intangible and invisible? I would request all the fellow scientists and researchers with insured brains to figure out this fallacy and the enigma so as to open the rationality of us bit wider.

     Fortunately, our ancestors wanted to frame set of principles and disciplines for the forthcoming generations so as to transform the livelihood of the humans more civilised from being faunal and insane. So, they wanted to create a fear among the people in the form of God and practices in the form of religion so as to incorporate command over their lives to prevent them to get deviated towards immorality. This transformation happened at various parts of the world at various point of times which actually has given birth to multiple religions, rituals and deities. Only strongly positioned religions survive till today. Hope with the scale of advancement in rationality and maturity, we should start mining these thoughts and have to elucidate our practices with reasons. Until then, the hunt for the realisation would persist for anyone with mortal ideologies. Thinking beyond this scope or comfort zone is something which might not be a thing to be bothered for many. But, an itching thing for few. Unfortunately, I am falling under the latter category.  So, intense reasoning is hindering me these days whenever I used to do something which I have been doing from day one of my life without reasoning.   

Hunger for realisation to be continued….! 

Pyaar Ka Punchnaama

“Committed” and “Break up” are kind of becoming status symbols these days primarily because of significant intervention and influence of western life style and social media.  I mean to depict about profound notion of today’s trend of ”Love”.  People are so much interested in responding others for these queries rather being interested in the people on whom they have fortunately fallen in so called relationship. Almost all the relationships are turning like recharge coupons with very limited validity which has been a popular trend in the society.  Funniest part of this crappy culture is that those supposedly committed freaks are querying those single people about their status and cracking poorest possible joke over them. I would like to deliver my laughter for their prank with a managerial justification sticking to it.

I could recollect about what one of my professors has said few months back when we headed to a business school life that “Management” and “Business” are omnipresent entities which could be imbibed in almost every possible thing in both personal and social life apart from corporate. I was having a perplexed perception on his saying till recent past, but these days I could able to relate everything happening in my life with management sticking to it. This interpretation might be because of my grooming in managerially matured state of mind.  But, I do not completely agree with this fact because I believe more in human perceptions rather on inhuman contemplations.  But I do agree that in all prospects, we can think from an angle of business or management. Alright, my recent application of this interpretation is on human relationships.

Few days back, one of my fellow friends asked me the same question. “Are you committed man?”. My response was just a laughter to the query before answering it which made him to make a wild guess that I am still single. He replied in marketing perspective, “If you could not even able to sell yourself to someone, how could you be able to sell other things and you could become at least a mediocre marketer in the offing?”. He is someone who is quite frequent in changing his relationship status in social media. I was cornered to reply him with the same marketing angle, “Unless you focus the appropriate target audience with intense research, no matter whatever you do to market your product. You will undoubtedly end up in a break up before your breakeven. “. He tried debating but I never used to waste my time in pointless debate which would end up almost in a zippo.
Although you do not believe in both philosophy and science, the bare truth of life is that you are down to earth to live independently. “Infatuation” and “Crush” are mere words of fantasy and fun which are in fact depictions of emptied flavours of life.  They might seemingly make your life funny but not comprised. So, solitude is something which travels with us throughout our journey till the day of expiry. This lacuna could never be replaced unless you find someone who could really stuff it with intensely true love and care which is something harder to achieve in this mechanical world. Until you find someone like them in your life, your relationship status makes no sense to the outside world and in fact you are showcasing it to yourself with a cracked mirror. Better stop wasting time in loving insane people and start kindling yourself to love yourself first which would make more sense instead. If your relationship is fading with time, why the hell you want to fall into it rather you could jump out of it. For people especially like me who are extremely choosy in admitting people in the radius of our world, how come it would be a cake walk in focusing on our target market followed by better positioning? Using strategies in a bountiful market is something equivalent in par with writing your name on a shore where the waves are quite frequent. Try to figure out your niche market segment before becoming an entrepreneur.

Until then, dare to stay single rather depending on someone!

~The Legendary Woman~

Music is the best medicine despite the kind of disease you are suffering from. I completely believe in the above saying cordially from my own experience in life. There is a constraint when it comes to music that it has to be undertaken longitudinally. The faith contributes more to this factoid rather rational thinking. I would like to prescribe the following medicine though I could not legally do that without a doctorate.

Whenever I happen to listen to “Vishnu saharanam” or “Baja Govindham” or “Kurai Ondrum illai” tracks on my playlist, my reflex remains the same. Simply Goosebumps! If I describe M.S.Subbhalakshmi as a legend, it would definitely be an understatement to such an extraordinary lady. I cannot ever imagine anyone in par with her vocal chords.  Such a matured, thick, stable, candied vox not only imbibes spirituality but also completely waters the soul and inducts the inner peace. I have come cross many anecdotes wherein many humans used to get boons from the supernatural power which I barely believe. But now, I am cornered to conceive this fact whenever I happen to listen to her collection of songs. Her voice has an inherent potent of even converting an atheist to a theist.  

She has been rightly honoured in getting the privilege of reverberating every morning with her "sahasranaam" chanting at Tirumala, the worldly renowned Hindu temple where Lord Venkateshwara is residing. All her tracks give us a mumsy experience that our own granny is singing to delight us. In no time, all my heavily weighing miseries become light and I end up in enthralling while listening to her tracks. I am not that much interested or crazy about the traditional Carnatic vocals. But, when it is a make of MS, my interest hardly matters.

Though physically distant from us, celestially she is living with us. I never feel like she has moved far away from the earthly things.  I am warmly privileged to listen to my granny’s songs in my playlist everyday!! A boon basically has two flips. I am on the other side of it J

Many medicines to follow J
