Who am I?

One, there is me,

and then there is the other.

We never meet ever,

though staying all together.

Sartre says, “the other is hell.”

but why the other is other?

(Jean-Paul Sartre was a French philosopher, He was awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature. Above is his famous quote “The other is hell”.)

Who am I?

Would I meet me someday?

Am I other than me?

Would I see me someday?

Who is there inside me,

speaking on behalf.

is it me who says it all?

A journey, perhaps all girls go through.

Every girl will relate to it.

I don’t know

That was the dark night,

perhaps the darkest.

I took the short route,

perhaps the longest.

On the way back home,

unfortunately all alone.

Fear was at the peak,

or is there a word, peakest?

Had no choice but to walk along,

accompanied by any song.

Masked my face with no fear,

was acting my best, I swear.

Saw a man standing in a corner,

who looked at me like a vulture.

No doubt I started moving faster,

with no look at him, all that after.

Thank god, I reached home safe,

which I didn’t think of, for the way I was scared.

क्या सारा अस्तित्व भी गुरु हो सकता है ?

अनेक बुद्ध पुरुष जैसे बुद्ध, महावीर, नानक आदि के गुरु क्यों नहीं हुए? उन्हें बिना गुरु के ज्ञान कैसे मिला?

एक सूफी फ़क़ीर हुआ, हसन |

मरते वक़्त किसीने पूछा की तेरे गुरु कौन थे ?

उसने कहा मत पूछो वो बात मत छेड़ो, तुम समझ न पाओगे और मेरे पास ज़्यादा समय भी नही है, मरने के करीब हूँ अब ज़्यादा समझा भी न सकूंगा |

लोगो नो कहा अब जा ही रहे हो तो ये उलझन मत छोड़ जाओ, वरना हम सदा पछतायेंगे |

ज़रा से में कह दो अभी तो कुछ सांस बाकी है |

उसने कहा बस इतना ही समझो की एक दिन नदी किनारे बैठा था, एक कुत्ता आया बड़ा प्यासा था, हांफ रहा था | नदी में झाँक के देखा वहां उसे दूसरा कुत्ता दिखाई दिया…

“जीवन बस उसी की अभिव्यक्ति है, जहा आप अपनी ऊर्जा का निवेश करते है |”

जब एक ही वक़्त में दो कार्य किये जा सकते है तो फिर एक ही काम क्यों करे ? ठीक ? खाना खाते खाते या कॉफ़ी पीते पीते टीवी देखना हो या अपने फ़ोन पर सोशल मीडिया पर काम करना, ये सब हमारी रोज़ की दिन चर्या का अभिन्न हिस्सा हो चूका है |

खैर मिशिगन यूनिवर्सिटी की जर्नल ऑफ़ एक्सपेरमेंटल साइकोलॉजी : ह्यूमन परसेप्शन एंड परफॉरमेंस में छपी रिसर्च का इस बारे में कुछ और ही कहना है | इस रिसर्च के अनुसार “ जो लोग एक वक़्त पर एक ही काम करते है उनके मुकाबले एक साथ कई काम करने वाले लोगो की किसी एक चीज़ पर ध्यान केंद्रित की छमता काफी काम होती है…

Through a random call, if I tell you that you won a lottery worth a few lakhs and ask you to transfer 500rs in return, to enable that lottery amount, would you transfer it?

In case you think only fools would transfer 500rs based on such dubious calls then here is real surprise news for you, 90 million dollars (650 crores approx in Indian currency) is the amount of fraud, done through email marketing and fake calls, by sending such fake lottery messages to many people.

What came into the existence first, chicken or egg?

It was the question, Dr. T A S Vijayaraghavan was posed in an interview of IIM Bangalore.

He later became a Dean of XLRI and earned many alphabets to his credits like B.Sc. (Maths), M. Stat. (ISI), PGD in SQC & OR (ISI), Fellow (IIM Bangalore), to be mentioned amongst few.

It’s not that the question of such ambiguity was directly fired upon him, but he was given chance before, to choose, if he wants to proceed with many but easy questions or one but difficult question.

And it was him, who out of his choice of wisdom, selected to proceed with the difficult, but rather only one question. …

“Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it.” — Noam Chomsky

In 2008, when 10 men come into Bombay, they kill 163 people over three days, in the same three days, by the way, 1500 people died in road accidents.

In 2011, road accidents claimed one lakh eighty-six a thousand lives in India. That’s roughly about 20 people per hour. So by the time, you will finish this piece, probably 3 more people would be dead because of road accidents.

We lost another half a million people, who were wounded because of road accidents. …

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. Buddha

On the 22nd of July 2011, Oslo was struck by a very powerful car bomb that went off just next to the Prime Ministers office.

8 people were killed immediately and hundreds were injured. Panic-struck Norwegians started trying to figure out why they have been attacked, why they have been added to the long list of cities that have been attacked by Islamic jihadists.

They searched and they discovered many reasons.

They found that Norway has been contributing troops to the NATO war effort, they found that the Muslim community of Norway had not been properly integrated into society, they also found that just a week before, a Muslim preacher had been indicted for incitement.

An eye-opener.

Unfortunate, but true!

No matter how much we love and respect Che Guevara and Bhagat Singh, we always want them to be born in the neighbor’s house. Because we don’t want our own loved ones to die like them. But if given a choice of rebirth, we all certainly would want to be born in bill gates home as his beneficiary children.

Isn’t it true that all of us appreciate any system when we can draw benefits from it and criticize the same when we are victimized by the same system?

For instance, let’s go back to 2016, You didn’t have black money, demonetization came and you felt it was a great initiative by the government but if you have had black money and demonetization was introduced, you would have criticized the same system saying that the government must take a practical decision and other things.

“React is associated with your helpless attitude of being a victim while the response is your strength to choose what is beneficial for you and act accordingly.”

No matter how desperate you are to improve, How frustrated you are with your current status in life, It is Your choice to react or respond towards a particular situation that would decide if you will be able to transform in your life or not.

Reacting over anything is an autonomous reply which is an outcome of a helpless, uncontrolled state of mind whereas the response to the same situation is your decision which you take out of wisdom.
