I uploaded a “Facebook Status” when I got back from Pangong Lake. It read “I was reminded the meaning of A Vast Expanse today “… And that’s when it struck me. How do they survive the winter? “ Julley” they old shop keeper under our guest house in Coglamsar said every time I went to her to buy toiletries and other knick knacks. The constant for Hello, Good Bye, Thank you, Welcome, Good Morning, Good

Spiritual Nature of Relationships

Spiritual Nature of Relationships

  If you’re a believer in re-birth or karma, and believe things happen for a reason, you wouldn’t be surprised that the most important relationships you have around you – spouse, parents, kids, friends, relatives, and enemies too, may not be new to you per se. Chances are that they have been carried forward from a previous birth with perhaps an agenda too. If you don’t fancy the idea, then it is difficult to explain

The Alchemy of Human Relationships

The Alchemy of Human Relationships

The Word Relationship has become a ‘hot buzz’ these days, as if somebody who has been working for long years in a movie industry, has gained the superstardom overnight. Everybody loves to talk, discuss and deliberate on this hot topic of ‘Relationship’, without understanding the real meaning and depth of this word which defines very deep-rooted Emotions and Feelings between Two Individuals, rather I would say two different Energies bounded by a Natural Cosmic Force.

Our world of PAIN & PLEASURE

  In NLP we often use two words ‘Pain’ and ‘Pleasure’. All our actions are governed by them e.g. pleasure for eating junk food and pain for exercising. Pleasure for watching TV and pain for reading a book. Pleasure in chatting with colleagues and pain for doing the job. We connect it to our thoughts and emotions as well, and since emotion governs the motion. These 2P’s form our entire lifestyle. A recent observation on this

Immortality of our relationship

Immortality of our relationship

Your arms I felt around me; My first connection with this world; Oh mom, your warmth I still feel; Even when into my bones bite the wintry chill   You gave me life, you gave me love You gave me values and inner strength I reap the fruits of the seeds you’ve sown You taught me in myself to have faith   You inspired confidence in me Sometimes you also let me be You spared

MY ANGELIC DEVIL OR MY DEVILISH ANGEL

MY ANGELIC DEVIL OR MY DEVILISH ANGEL

  With a lusty wail, you came into this world That moment onwards, you became my world Your endearing smile, slightly tilted head Those impishly twinkling eyes left everything unsaid You fought circumstances, even in your innocence Your little brain packed in a lot of common sense. Your laughter gave me a lease of life Your love eased all pain and strife With you I enjoyed pleasures of motherhood Much as I endured the pains

Happiness is like a butterfly……..

      Happiness is like a butterfly…….. It flies away from you when you run after it………… It sits on your shoulder when you stop seeking it…….. Happiness for her was to know she belonged to him.  Happiness for her was to run her fingers thru’ his hair. For  her ‘twas a state of bliss without a care. But alas! Life took him away from her; she belonged not to him.   Loving him

My Woof Mate

My Woof Mate

Love, friendship, and bonding are not always at the stake of words. Such emotions sometimes come clad in a Lick, a wag, and a woof. Those lucky ones blessed with a woof mate will surely agree with me on this point. My mate continues to stay with me as Love, Hope, and Strength, even after several years of leaving his physical dwelling. One Cold October morning when I went to inspect our house construction site,

A Good Fire Going

There have been reams written about love, but between love and respect, respect is what keeps the home fires burning long after the first rasping spark on the tinder box of attraction has burnt itself out. People focus so much on love that they forget to handle the humble aspect of respect. Without respect, love doesn’t seem to last. Intimacy does sometimes develop a dozen left feet. Many people seem to confuse respect with awe

Still waters running deep

I have often wondered about the glue that binds people together, about why some relationships become stronger over the years while some fall along the way. Do we all unconsciously move towards what our subconscious feels is a more comfortable or ‘stable’ state of being? Is this the reason we instinctively relate to some people while some others remain strangers forever? Could there be an analogy with the way elements in the universe come together

The Timeless weave of soulmates

The fabric of space and time is enthralling for those who care enough to stop by. A pair of soulmates enmeshed in the fabric of time and space definitely would. It might occur to them that if time is one of the threads running through that fabric, surely love must be the needle that was used by the seamstress to hold it in place. Knowledge might very well then be the eye of the needle

Moonshine

Moonshine

The moon scorches too With its incandescence; Moonshine burns you too With its silvery essence… When the tides turn after twilight And the old moon surfaces above, When lakes and streams and oceans alike To her invisible force are all drawn — What chance, my friend, then do mortal emotions stand, When mighty seas her silken strength can barely withstand? — Saon Bhattacharya

Minor Life in a Major Country

Minor Life in a Major Country

    Minor Life in a Major Country: It’s a tale of past January where my niece of nine was rehearsing a song for heading Republic Day Celebrations at her school. I have witnessed someone of household mentoring her vocal and others lexical. Pardon I couldn’t contribute to the little girl’s pride since I fell head over heel in my professional chores. But at last I comprehended her urging approach and worked on further rectifications

Book Review : Aurangzeb by Audrey Truschke

Book Review : Aurangzeb by Audrey Truschke

Rare is the book that causes a sea-change in opinion or perspective; this book – Aurangzeb: The Man and the Myth, by Audrey Truschke, is one in that category. A book that quite successfully challenges, at least in my case, a strongly held opinion, and overturns it through sheer dint of a strong, logical, data-and-fact backed series of arguments that is also intuitively accurate when put into the larger picture of the era under question.

Letting Go-The Mind Makes Its Choice

Letting go – It’s not been too hard for me. Over the years I’ve learnt to let go of a lot of things – relationships that were not meant to be, people with whom I did not share a chemistry, objects that began to assume the form of meaningless, desires that started to morph into parasites. If you’re thinking it’s a result of some spiritual attainment, you’re wrong. When something unfavourable comes my way, I’ve

Hitch hiking along the Indo-Pak border

Hitch hiking along the Indo-Pak border

If you love to meet people and want to know Amristar better, then get out of your cars and get onto a bullock cart of tractor. That’s pretty much the kind of hitch hiking we did when we packed our backpacks and 16-month-old daughter to head into the heartlands of India’s famed border of Attari-Wagah with Pakistan. It was harvest time and the fields were partly lush-green waiting for the ripe time to reap what

Fear:Face It To Fade It

I’ve written a lot about letting go, leaving the past behind and moving on in the journey of life. At times, this seems easy. Then there are times when an incident stirs up an old memory… a memory that elicits a fear that suddenly looms large in its magnified state even after decades of its birth. While the mind refuses to let go of these memories and keeps them stowed at the back of the

The selfish act of forgiveness

Forgiveness – it’s a word well spoken, often debated about; yet, its tentacles are far too tightly wound to break free with ease. There’s that ego that always powers up the energy to not forgive. And in recent times, fear has begun to play an even stronger role in holding one back from forgiving. I’ve experienced the power play of ego and fear building a dam of resistance against forgiving. It spreads a shroud of
