Purpose In/Of Life?

In the deepest core of our unhappiness In the longest journey of restlessness In the stern decision of penance Do                 you               feel? We have a purpose to deal This lies inside us, so deepen but so vague We observe facts, make opinion and taboo We distinct between deep and shallow Our purpose lights the path, which we follow In meeting our purpose, we break chains Wear new ones; build homes, leaving old dens Search mystery, leaving behind inspiring history Narrowing the gap of virtual and reality Whenever in my conscience, I see The question really haunts me Do we drive ourselves for purpose Or it is the purpose, which drive us?

An Extraordinary Mind

Recently, I watched a documentary and it really took my breaths away. I have read about the people with more abilities of mind, like Einstein; like Stephen Hawking, but what I come across was totally different, it was about a man who feels emotion in numbers; calculate complex multiplication and division, spontaneously; learn any language in just 1 week; remember the value of pi to 20,000 digits.  His name is Daniel Paul and he is a British citizen.

Well, one can raise question over his ability as useful as a calculator, but important thing is that it has opened a new stream of research, the interaction of number and image.  Scientifically, the part of brain which deals with number and which deals with images are different.  After a series of experiment done on Daniel, It was revealed that for every number he creates a unique image in his mind. If he is given a multiplication of two numbers, the interaction of these two creates third image, and important thing is that it happens sponta…

Ancient Wisdom

One cannot deny the significance of apocryphal stories, ancient paintings and sculptures in philosophical and scientific investigation. Our scriptures, our ancient arts (Khajuraho and Alora caves) has a lot more hidden knowledge, which independent comprehension can open deep secrets of wisdom and intelligence. In “YogSastra”, how beautifully Patanjali has described whole physiology of human body with astrology (Sun and Moon). However, explanations of many of his Sutras are available, but yet complete and precise description is unavailable.
Someone has very beautifully said,” Sutras are like seeds. One needs to sow them in the fertile soil. And then this seeds sprouts into flowers”
Lord Siva is deeply related to Tantra philosophy. His deity is representation of harmony of male and female, yin and yang. A divine representation of sexuality, deciphering that sex is not limited to physical level, but also beyond a physical level there is subtle fusion of Siva and Shakti engery, resulting a …

My Interview

“You have studied till 12th from a village and with Hindi medium”, the most elderly man in the group of six interviewers asked me. I could not understand whether this thing would have positive or negative effect in my selection, I nodded, “yes! Sir”
“Ok, then if you are not comfortable in English, we can ask questions in Hindi.”
I humbly said,” No sir! I am comfortable in English. Even sir, I have qualified JEE in English language.”
“Don’t be afraid, we are not here to check your communication in English. DRDO is a research organisation; we hire people of good knowledge and analytical skills.”
I made no response and continued my answers in English.
I had already one dream job (Maruti-Suzuki) in my hand so as per placement rules I was not allowed to appear in interview of DRDO. However, on the day of interview, everyone(eligible one as their rules) was allowed to appear. Mentally I was not ready. Yet, I left my class test and within 15 minutes I was in training and placement office, with m…

Freedom Of Expression Vs Politics

Well, Politics was a bad word for me, in my earlier days. I do think that it was just a prejudice which was deeply bedded  into me while I witnessed first election in my village for Panchayat. Money, liquor, slogans, guns were the indistinguishable element of politics. The man, who had guns; who had power; who had money and obviously apparatchik people, won the election. So the image of contestants in election had overridden the word ‘politics’ for me. Slowly, as I grew younger, I realized that politics is an integral part of a country that sustains the development for country; makes rules and responsible for its implementation for the welfare of the people.
Jashwant Singh's book has created a storm in the political plot of BJP. I wonder how a book can lead a man to the end of his three decades political persona, in a county like India where freedom of expression is well illustrated in constitution. This Talibanised act is really shameful. It is attack on free expression and threa…

Change With Change

Recently I have read an interesting fact, which clearly illustrates the pain and suffering endured by people due to their dogmatic and irrational thinking. According to it, in the time of George3, It was believed that people suffers because devil resides in their body. More the people will be in pain; more pain will be transferred to devil. So they made a conclusion that if suffering man was made to have a very severe and unbearable pain, devil would leave his body forever. It was implemented not only on citizen but also on the King itself without any success. I hope, today, this type of cure can be adopted for enemy only.
Society changes with change in our thinking; with a change in our belief. Change is always painful. Whoever first opens his mouth, many hands try to close it. One has to endure humility, pain and even condemnation to death to bring out the change. When Galileo said that it is not the sun that moves around the sun, but earth moves around the sun, people get agitated a…

Life Is In Moments

Death!  I saw my death This came to took me from my friends and relatives This came to ruin my desires and inspirations This came to spoil my dreams, my lovely sensations I bowed and prayed, my good life is going to start Entire past was spent to reach this part If I will die today, it will be unfair You are God, you cannot snatch my share I tried to run away many miles God gave me a mysterious smile He said,” Oh! My dear Life is in moments, not in years. And at the next moment I was watching my body, dead and bent. Suddenly, alarm clock rang with a deep shriek I woke up from my shallow sleep.

My First 55 Fiction

I have been inspired by Shruti and IP to write a 55 fiction. This is my first attempt. Hope, you would like it. A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)A setting,One or more characters,Some conflict, andA resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.

Her legs are moving fast.
She is breathing heavily. Her whole body is perspiring. She is roaring. But her eyes are focused. She is determined. She is fighting with the society Society, which is humiliating her; laughing at her She no longer wants to hear the word ‘Fatty’.
