Abstraction of knowledge


Science means purified knowledge. But what about the process that converts the raw knowledge into purified form and who is the authority to claim the distinction of raw and pure. It is we that try to align the knowledge in our dimension. This is our projection. And projections are virtual. So there is abstraction. This is same as to claim an object’s length by its shadow. Whole day the length of shadow is varying. We need to know the position of sun for actual length. Your sun is in you. We need to acknowledge it. I was puzzled and perhaps all will be, when they will think about the Lao tzu statement that knowledge in inexpressible through words. It can only be felt in silence. First thing, here, Lao Tzu is talking about the knowledge we already posses. It is to be remembered only. It cannot be categorized in raw and pure because this knowledge is in the centre of your sun. It has no projection.
When we see a rose. We can feel its beauty. But the same beauty cannot be felt by the description of the beauty of rose. You can have the best description but the synchronization of your inner being with the beauty is not at all possible. No mathematical formulation can quantify the ecstasy and joy of the two lovers. Science is beyond it. Whenever you are happy whole world seems beautiful and when you are unhappy, whole world becomes ugly. This is proof of the fact that everything is your projection. If it is your projection then you have always a distinction what is beautiful and what is ugly. Judging something beautiful still approves that something is ugly. So in GITA Krishna has announced to be equal in happiness and unhappiness. This simply reflects to be meditated to your inner consciousness, your inner sun. How can be a projection of an object can be made if the object is in the centre of the sun? Then what ever you view will be bliss. No one can categorize it. It will have no opposites. This is what our scripture say YOGA (samatvam yogam uchayte). But here also word ‘YOGA’ is an abstraction of the feeling, the bliss.

Women-Empowerment (A Short Story)

Her spectacle ridden red eyes were trying to run away from the crowd as soon as possible. Every person was looking so alien, so dreadful.  Her heart was pounding so fast, it felt it could come out anytime. She closed her eyes; took a long-breath; chanted a prayer, perhaps to stabilize her trembling soul. But it was of no use. In the high decibel of the noise she had already lost her ability to hear her own words. Somewhere at some meters away she found a corner.  She moved towards the corner with her shuddering legs but alas! Her blurring eyes were proving too difficult to keep open. She fell down and in a few hours she was laying against white bed-sheet in the government hospital. She didn’t know who took her there.  She moved her eyes everywhere to search some known faces. But there was no one. Finally she closed her eyes. So how are you feeling now? She heard a male, soothing yet concerned voice, but not sure if it was for her or someone else. She opened her eyes slightly...As the ima…

Begging Future

Scientists believe that after a certain period especially childhood, our mind does not develop; it just gathers knowledge, makes it experiences and learns new things.Freud, the father of psychology claims that till that age, the way our mind gets shaped; it lasts for our whole life and defines our behaviour and character. So, the important point which I want to draw is that childhood is the most crucial period which decides and defines our future.
To grow a child, is an art, the most beautiful living art of existence. But unfortunately, everyone doesn’t want to reveal his art as they have never felt the joy of this art Or maybe they would have work more prior to this. So their creation is not perfect. A child needs care, love, humbleness, spontaneity; which most of people would be mistaken by fulfilment of economic needs. Well, a good school can substitute the role of parents to an extent but not completely.
In case of India where good schools and perfect parents are a distant fantasy f…

LAKSHMEE- A short story (Guest Post)

Many years have passed since she left this imperfect and unjust world, but still she floats around in my memories time to time. Today I have decided to tell the story of Lakshmee as was perceived through my eyes. Lakshmee was born as a first child in a family which had seen a girl child after two generations. Although a boy would have been more welcome in this case also, Her arrival in this world was tolerated or I dare say welcomed in much better way than many of other girls had in my village. At that time you could guess by the silence and gloom at home that a girls had arrived or by noise of celebration that a boy had been born. A feast was arranged as celebration for her birth which was generally reserved for boys. Her grandfather christened her Lakshmee, consoling his son that she will bring prosperity, material and money as well as many boys to family.
She was a very lovely child with plenty of smiles and comfortable with anyone wishing to carry her in his/her arms. Since she wa…
