The change

Posted on: July 15, 2009

There are few things I’d like to change around me.

1. HONKING – This should be CHANGED. I hate to hear the honking noise. When really needed, please do, but where there’s no soul in front of you blocking your way or barring traffic rules why the *#!%  do you honk???

2.INDIAN PENAL CODE – How relevant can the IPC be when it is totally outdated.Crimes and Criminals have greatly changed from the time IPC was drafted.

3. APPLICATION OF STUDY – Why dont our educational systems teach students  first aid care, CPR, cooking for oneself, driving, gardening, martial arts, filing a complaint at any public office (police stn / EB /Corporation etc) ? Are’nt those inevitable to us??

4.  UNIFORM– If uniforms are provided in school for considering every student the same, why is it not followed at all offices?Makes life more simpler.

5. PUBLIC TRANSPORT – I really appreciate cities where metro rail helps us a lot like Chennai,Mumbai,Kolkata. How about all other growing cities adapting to the same. Also when do the state transport plan to upgrade their buses?

6. PUBLIC TOILETS – Please , these need a change! Why do we hesitate to use the public toilets – unclean,stinky,yuck – how many words come to us when I say that! There should be a sanitation ministry I feel. Not to forget train toilets 😦 and the airport toilets.

7. HERBAL crap – If cosmetic products are created from aloe,bergamot,lime,honey,milk,fruits etc why the heck do we buy these,might as well buy the above natural resource and use it.

8. ORGANIC – Dude, we Indians were always using organic manure that was cheap in cost.It was other countries who made us use fertilizers and now all are getting back to square one and charge a whopping amount for such organic produce!

9. CLOTHES and EYES – A woman wears what she wants. Please refrain LADIES AND GENTLEMEN to give her those horrid looks, to make her feel uncomfortable. She knows what she is wearing and you dont need to teach her. If you have any suggestions, please use it yourself.

10. TELEVISION – When I was a child, DD promptly used to shut down all its programs by 10 I guess and resumed at 6 am. Why has this been changed? Why do we have 24X7 relay of programs? Isnt that an unwanted service. If you dont agree, please let me know how many of you’ll watch TV at 4 am..

ooh too much of feelings … time to relax .. cya 😉

Soulmate

Posted on: July 14, 2009

Who is a soulmate? Have you met yours?

Here is a wonderful read from Paulo’s Brida that explains more about this subject. I reread this so many times, coz I can relate to this concept so well. I met my soulmate — yipeeeeeeeeeeee!!! 🙂

From the book of Paulo Coelho – “Brida”
“We are eternal because we are all manifestations of God.That is why we go through many lives and many deaths, emerging out of some unknown place and going toward another equally unknown place. You must get used to the fact that there are many things in magic which are not and never will be explained. God decided to do certain things in a certain way and why He did this is a secret known only to Him.
The fact is that this happens.
And when people think of reincarnation, they always come up against a very difficult question: if, in the beginning, there was so few people on the face of Earth, and now there are so many, where did all those new souls come from?The answer is simple.In certain reincarnations, we divide into two. Our souls divide as do crystals and stars, cells and plants.Our souls divides in two, and those new souls are in turn transformed into two and so, within a few generations, we are scattered over a large part of Earth.And does only one of those parts know who it is???
We form part of what the alchemists call the Anima Mundi, the soul of the world. The truth is that if the Anima Mundi were merly to keep dividing, it would keep growing, but it would also become gradually weaker. That is why, as well as dividing into two, we also find ourselves. And that process of finding ourselves is called Love. Because when a soul divides, it always divides into a male part and a female part.That’s how the Book of Genesis explains it: the soul of Adam was split in two, and Eve was born out of him.
In each life, we feel a mysterious obligation to find at least one of those Soul Mates.
The Greater Love that separated them feels pleased with the Love that brings them together again.
But how will i know who my Soul Mate is??? By taking risks.
By risking failures, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in your search for Love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end.
Is it possible to meet more than one Soul Mate in each life?Yes.
The essence of Creation is one and one alone. And the essence is called Love.Love is the force that brings us back together, in order to condense the experience disperesed in many lives and many parts of the world.
We are responsible for the whole Earth because we do not know where they might be. Those Soul Mates we were from the beginning of time. If they are well, then we, too, will be happy. If they are not well, we will suffer, however unconsciously, a portion of their pain. Above all, though, we are responsible for reencountering, at least once in every incarnation, the Soul Mate who is sure to cross our path. Even if it is only for a matter of moments, because those moments bring with them a Love so intense that it justifies the rest of our days.
We can also allow our Soul Mate to pass us by, without accepting him or her, or even noticing. Then we will need another incarnation in order to find that Soul Mate. And because of our selfishness, we will be condemned to the worst torture of humankind ever invented for itself: LONELINESS.
happy thinking!!!
 

Dinner with S

Posted on: July 14, 2009

My cousin S came over for dinner on Sunday. This is the first time she is visiting me. Her daughter,husband accompanied her.S and I are of the same age and are third cousins to be precise. Am supposed to call her “chithi” lol, but never did.

We share some beautiful memories together. I have spent days with her during my vacations when I was in school. She lived in the same place where my grand parents live, so anytime we are in my granny’s place, I am set to visit her atleast once. It was a time when there were no mobile phones, so my mom used to leave me in her place and then pick me up after 3-4 days. No inbetween calls to find out if “is she eating, is she comfortable” like we do today. I used to wear S’ clothes when at her place and she used to wear mine. We used to play all day with her lovely set of “choppu jaaman” (read little utensils in a kitchen set). Her father used to take us to their grocery shop, and we used to munch “naturo” mango bars,  five stars(that came with a golden brown cover),raisins and if nothing was given, handful of wholewheat popped in the mouth that turns into a white chewing gum like stuff 🙂  !

I very clearly remember, sometime in 1990 or so, there were some cute stickers that we can stick on our watch dials, and S gifted me a whole sheet of them… wow how I cherished them. S’ mom was an awesome cook and I can never forget how she always made “mundiri kothu” ( a sweet delicacy made in South India, with gram flour,jaggery and channa dhall) and “suyyam aka susiyam”(another sweet dish , little softer than the former). Yummmm…

When I had completed my graduation and wanted to look for a job, I came to Chennai where S lives. S got married then. I went straight to her place and stayed there for a month – thats the relationship we share. We had a wonderful time together then.S then went to south east asia and then to London,and is now in Chennai again.

We met after say 6-7 years and we had so much to speak about.. It is indeed good to meet old pals like this. Friendship is a beautiful thing and when its with someone in the family, its even more beautiful. Love you S. Wish you a wonderful life.

Breezy

The day has been extremely windy and I love the cool breeze blowing on my face. I am loving what am doing, creating a new blog at wordpress as blogger is blocked at workplace, however facebook,twitter and the like are’nt, wonder why.

It has happened to me many times, I keep thinking of someone and I bump onto them, or get a text or mail from them.. Last evening , my best friend from Ohio came on chat 🙂 after I was thinking about emailing him! Has this happened to you? Not once,or twice.. it often happens to me.. I know am wierd, am I also getting some ESPs? gee that’ll be fun.

I got to catch up on loads of  tamil movies.. Nadodigal,Valmiki, kunguma poovum .., mayandi kudumbathaar(probably one I can fit into this weekend I guess). Am looking forward to Selva’s Ayirathil Oruvan and Kanthasamy.

Have been lately listening to this song “unthan desathin kural” from the movie “swadesh/Desam” sung by Oscar winner ARR. It is’nt new but an amazing song with awesome lyrics. My sis L was the one who gave me this song.I listened to it first in her nano.

Got to join a gym and cut out on fatty food, as I dont see me improving in shaping my silhoutte any bit…. Mission 2009 🙂 Letzee.

Down memory lane
