The God I believe in.

Right now I feel so sleepy but can't hit the shack. Maid is about to knock in a few minutes and I'd rather get my house cleaned than to have a nap (which, of course, can be done later).

I look at the ceiling and find the fan running. Then I look at the tube light. It is lit. I turn my attention to their power source: the switchboard. One source with several connections. One. And that's what seeds an idea and still germinating into a fully grown thought. We are all scattered and distributed, in abundance and in sparse; in a dot and in a complete sentence; over the ground and under the sky. Moving, talking, smiling...we all are somehow interconnected to the other. The lost energy is channelized and finally found into something constructive; broken is healed somewhere; tear turns into a smile somewhere; unsaid gets spoken and pure hatred evolves ecstatic love out there. Don't you think it is all linked? That we are a part of big humongous family even though we walk as strangers? This world is actually a big family and the sky is our protector? And we live, walk, work under the same roof, over the same ground?

But if we all are connected then there must be a switch board as a unit of source? There must be a tip to these millions of people binding them together and keeping side by side. They say, it is God. That it is He who binds us all and prompts us according to his plans. I don't know about it much because I am a no-believer in god. Yeah, I am a bit different. I am an atheist. For me, it is not the faces and the royal presentation of what you call God but it is Human Beings and our Karma that I firmly believe in. It is Nature (trees, sky, birds, and anything naturally existing and growing) that I find my god in. Because I can see a seed planted, germinating and then finally growing into a tall symbolic structure that provides nurture, hope, and the continuation of life. I can see the sky stretched all over my head and your head. It is endless. No one has given birth to it yet it is a Big Daddy protecting all of us from every harsh thing possible. The ground beneath mirrors the infinity of the sky. Our Earth is like a Loving Mother letting each of us have a little piece of stability to walk on. The Sky provides fiction while The Earth gives non-fiction. One lets you dream while the other keeps you connected with the truth. Such balance!

Thus, I see Life in Nature. I see Death in Nature. I see Hope in Nature. I see Perseverance in Nature. The most important in last four things I said is...can you guess? is that I can see. And what you see is what you believe. I haven't seen Lord Shiva or Rama or Goddess Durga or Kali. So I possibly don't have much of a logic to believe in them. I see Nature and I believe in Nature. That's my God...raw & original...LIVE 24/7.

Alongside come Human Beings and Karma. Why do I believe in Human Beings because someone has given me birth, someone has nurtured me into a person that I am today, someone has given me love to grow into a better person and someone has presented me with the hatred that pushes me to do my best. Everyone is flawless yet there is a flaw in everyone. That makes me bow to Human Beings. We are different yet we are all the same. And the thing that keeps all of us on one level is our Karma. What you sow so shall you reap. You do good, you find good. You do bad, you find bad. As simple as that. Not every time the equation is balanced, yes but it is beyond our intellect, way farther than our most fertile imagination to tackle the answer of Why. 

Karma keeps our mind, soul and body intact and in touch. Human Beings assure the survival. Nature makes sure of the balance between the former two. It does not allow conflicts. And that's what I adore most about my Nature, that it can be gentle and rough as long as conflicts are withdrawn. When I need strength, I look out side my window and that's where my god resides: in trees and in sky, in flying birds and moving clouds. Then I pray if I am in need, or express my gratitude for what I have or make a wish, if I have any at the moment. This may all sound a bit silly but it's alright. I am in no mood to convince you at this moment or any other moment. I don't believe in rectifying myself over a selective set of points. But all said and done, Belief is a good thing to possess, whether it is aroused by some shapely idol or scattered nature.

P.S. My maid has come. This means I can have my nap in 30 minutes. Fingers crossed!

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.

But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.

"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Therefore, if you are thinking of going for a fitness regime upfront or are already enrolled for one but getting supremely bored, chew on the key points below to get a better digestive form of what work out may work best for you. Some key aspects are given just to remind you how they are in perfect alliance with your chosen work out.

Body type and target areas 
First of all, learn your body type. There are few body types like Apple, Pear, Hour glass etc. Apple means your upper body is wider than your lower; Pear body type is just the opposite means lower is wider than the upper body parts; Hour glass figure is usually considered ideal as it contains the same ratio of chest and hip while teetering a lean waistline.

Then ponder on the areas that really sucks for you. If your waist line resembles a room size, you really…

A remarkable tribute by Amitach Bachchan for Nirbhaya

Today I read a poem written by legendary Amitach Bachchan. He has dedicated this to the Delhi rape victim (on Dec. 16th 2012). When I start reading it, I couldn't stop myself completing it. It is so remarkable and sublime that literally it will make a vortex into your brain with a dot at its end :: Nirbhaya's (Real name :: Jyoti Singh) pleas and pains.

I am gonna share this poem on my blog to make it as an inseparable part so that I won't have to juggle to search it again.

Maa bohot dard sah kar..
bohot dard de kar...
tukhse kuch kah kar main jaa rahi hun.......
Aaj meri vidai main jab Sakhiyaan milne aayengi...
Safai­d Jode main lipti dekh sisak sisak mar jayengi... Ladki­ hone ka khud pe fr wo Afsos jatayengi.....
M­aa tu unse itna kah dena Darindo k duniya main Sambhal kar rahna..........­­..... Maa Rakhi par jb Bhaiya Kalai suni rah jayegi.. yaad mujhe kar kar jab unki Aankh bhar ayegi.... Tilak mathe par karne ko Maa rooh meri bhi Machal jayegi... Maa tu bhaiya ko rone na dena.…
