What am I?

Some sighed; I smiled.
Some snickered; I ignored.
Few acclaimed, I bowed.
Few relished; I rejoiced.
But, what am I in real?
A phenomenon or just a garden-variety?
A super-talent or yet another customary mediocre?

I failed when I failed to pat myself on the back!
I won when I thought it was OK to fail!

A late night walk

Her hands never abandoned mine,
We took off after nine.

Her arms were my dearest armour,
Yet my deadliest fear!

 Some sweet bangs when I said no;
Some wide hee-haws when I said yes;

Simulating guts in the scary street,
Abounding ease with every meet

Our never-ending strolls -
Broke off only at 'pani-puri' stalls;

Giggling at every little something,
We were the hopeless best-thing!

Here I am today, far --
But what does the heart crave for?

That same late night walk with her, 

One more time!

Love is ..

Love is ..
Idolatry - because it makes me worship Him!
Love is ..
Motherhood - because I tend to admire and comprehend a mother(my mother) better!
Love is ..
Madness - because I feel it's ok to be a freaky frenzied kiddo!
Love is ..
Contemplation - because now I know altruism.
Love is ..
Revival -  because I happen to love my friends & family even more.
Love is ..
Decorum - because my idea of romance overlooks lechery!
Love is ..
Hope !

Why do we visit temples?

There are thousands of temples all over India in varying size and shape but not all of them are considered to be built the Vedic way.
Generally, a temple should be located at a place where earth's
magnetic wave path passes through densely. It can be in the outskirts of a town/village or city or in the middle of dwelling place or on a hilltop.

Essence of visiting a temple:

Tanjore - Bragatheeswarar Temple - Periya Kovil

The temples are located strategically at a place where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions of north/south pole thrust. The main idol is placed
in the core center of the temple, known as Garbhagriha or Moolasthanam. In fact, the temple structures were built after the idol had been placed. 

This moolasthanam is where earth's magnetic waves are found to be maximum. In fact, there are some copper plates inscribed with Vedic scripts, buried beneath the Main Idol. 
But what are they actually? 
No, they are not God's / priests' flash cards when they forget the shlokas
The copper plate absorbs earth's magnetic waves and radiates it to the surroundings. 
Ergo, a person regularly visiting a temple and walking clockwise around the main idol receives the beamed magnetic waves and his body absorbs it. This is a very slow process and a regular visit will let him absorb more of this positive energy.

Further, the Sanctum is closed on three sides. This increases the effect of all energies. The lamps that are lit radiate heat energy and also provide light inside the sanctum to the priests or poojaris performing the pooja

The rings of bell and the chants take a worshipper into trance, thus not letting his mind waver. When done in groups, this helps people forget personal problems for a while and relieve their stress. 

The fragrance from the flowers, the burning of camphor gives out the chemical energy further aiding in a different good aura. The effect of all these energies is supplemented by the positive energy from the idol, the copper plates and utensils in the garbhagriha .  

Theertham, the 'holy water' used during pooja to wash the idol is not plain water cleaning the dust off an idol. It is a concoction of cardamom, pachha karpuram (benzoin), zaffron / saffron, tulsi (Holy basil), clove, etc.Washing the idol is to charge the water with the magnetic radiations thus increasing its medicinal values. Three spoons of this holy water is distributed to devotees. Again, this water is mainly a source of magneto-therapy. Besides, the clove essence protects one from tooth decay, saffron & tulsi leaves prevent us from common cold and cough, cardamom and pachha karpuram (benzoin), act as mouth fresheners. 
It is proven that the holy water is an effective blood purifier, as it is highly energized
Hence it is given as prasad(offering of holy water) to the devotees.

This is why our elders insisted on offering prayers at the temple so that you will be cured of many ailments. They were not always superstitious. Their belief was not all hogwash.
Yes, in a few cases they did go overboard when due to ignorance, some believed many serious diseases could be cured at temples by deities. 

When people go to a temple for Deepaaraadhana(worship with lamps), when the doors open up, the positive energy gushes out onto the persons who are present. 
The water that is sprinkled onto the assemblages pass on the energy to all. This also explains why men are not allowed to wear shirts in few temples and women are requested to wear more ornaments during temple visit. It is through these jewels (metal) the energy is absorbed by women. 
Also, it is a practice to leave newly purchased jewels at an idol's feet and then wear them with God's blessings. The act of 'seeking divine blessings' before using any new article like book, pen or automobiles might have stemmed from this through mere observation.

Energy lost in a day's work is regained through a temple visit and a person is refreshed slightly. The energy that is spread out in the entire temple and especially in the moolasthanam are simply absorbed by the human body and mind. 

Do you know?

"Every Vaishnava(Vishnu devotee), must visit a Vishnu temple twice every day in their locality". 

It had been the 'hard and fast rule' for Vaishnavas in ancient days.

Our practices are not blind rules framed by one man and his followers or God's words in somebody's dreams. All the rituals and practices are, in reality, well researched, studied and scientifically backed thesis which form the ways of nature to lead a sound and salubrious life.

The significance of following the same are well camouflaged as 'elder's instructions' or 'granny's teachings' which should be obeyed as a mark of respect so as to once again, avoid stress to the
mediocre brains.

"சிலிர்ப்பூட்டும் சில் சிறகாய் நீ 
உருமாறா சீர் சிறகாய் நீ

உயர் பறக்கும் எண்ணச்சிறகாய் நீ 
உயிர் காக்கும் உயிர்ச்சிறகாய் நீ 

துன்ப நதியில் - போரிட்டு, மேல் நிற்கும் தனிச்சிறகாய் நீ 
காற்றோடு கலந்தோடும் கற்பனைச்சிறகாய் நீ 

சுற்றித்திரியும் சுதந்திரச்சிறகாய் நீ 
மேன்மை பெற்ற மென்சிறகாய் நீ

அசைந்தாடும் மகிழ்ச்சிறகாய் நீ 
அழகூட்டும் அக அழகியாய் நீ!"

The 'four' musketeers

It's been a year and a half. Life goes on, no matter what.

When I try to decipher the sense that it makes while saying 'a year and a half' , I'm apparently replenished by - my unreadiness for IT culture - the unheard of emotions - the circle of friendship that unfolded - the enduring flipside of me that I never knew existed - a series of inimitable memories flashing like a black and white slow paced movie - the hearts that made me cry, learn, grow, introspect - the way I became what I am today.

Why do I feel like my college days have come to an end when I didn't really feel so while I was walking out of my college campus?
Looking back at the time when I was just an inept new born out of college, I am left perplexed.
Should I thank my friends for being just there for me/with me all the time? or should I thank god for his brilliant strategem?

·  The vetti chit-chats
·  The leisurely walk during work hours ;) and work during break time :P
·  The lame jokes ( lol. The latest/lamest one - knows/Nose :D )
·  The hilarious run aways :P
·  The 'we are friends' love stories and solution finding
·  The 'No long break together' mails
·  The fight for food in the same plate
·  The all new language speaking skills
·  The 'otha sollala' drunken dancing :P
·  The non-stop story telling skills that I developed :)
·  The silly tantrum for chocolates :P
·  The 'dhandiyas' during lunch ;)
·  The mokkais that we used to get while trying to show off :D 
The compassion, the support, the pain, the truest of emotions. Damn! I miss the idiots. Here I am today with all the beautiful memories intact in my heart.

We were definitely the musketeers.

Callous killing of Journalists

*Speak the truth and leave immediately after*
Accolades to Republic India!

It was completely appalling to read about the outrageous murder of a freelance journalist Chandrika Rai and his family members including two teenage kids, on 18th February (Saturday) in Madhya Pradesh's Umaria distictA series of articles alleging the involvement of a local opposition party leader in illegal mining and his finger pointing towards the mafia active in the region was all the provocation for the ruthless slay. The saddest part is when the murder is attempted with a clear-cut motive which is conspicuous to the authorities, they still choose to be dumb and blind. I would say the cold-blooded atrocity is not the attempted murder, but emancipation of the accused. 

Looking back at the plight of journalists in India, Journalism had always been an audacious and resolute field meant for aspiring people who prefer conscience to their safety. Sad but true! "Ready for falling prey to injustice and corruption? Welcome"

Jyotirmoy Dey was one such victim who was dreadfully murdered by motorists with gunshots over his head and chest as a commendation for his daring coverage of Mumbai's crime world in 2011. Headed towards the right direction, aren't we?
A dozen men hacking him to death in 2000, Selvaraj, another victim, who was a famous biweekly magazine's reporter in Tamil Nadu suffered over 20 serious lacerations and was dead on the spot. 

Around 46 journalists all over the world were brutally murdered in 2011. Indian victims count alone goes up to 27 so far. With all the Blood-thirsty politics in India, Mark Twain’s saying can be rephrased this way

“Always tell the truth. This will gratify some people, astonish the rest and kill the follower”

Accolades to Republic India, absolutely righteous!
