I got this idea today.....we come across quotes everyday....some monumental and some inconsequential....some funny,some absurd......i'll post a couple o' quotes everyday with my feelings about them.......readers are welcome to share the opinions too.

Speak when you are angry----and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.--------Laurence J. Peter.

When anger rises, think of consequences.--------Confucius

true enough...... in school once a teacher told me.....whenever u get angry....avoid doing whatever comes to your mind just then.....keep it in mind...start mulling over the idea......since then i have tried doing that.....and it works......'cuz by the time my thought process anger evaporates or seems inconsequential......and i have als worked a solution to the cause of anger, so i don' get a chance to get angry again......:)


Since i was a kid Diwali & Christmas have been my favourite time of the year.......the time since ramlila began till the five days of diwali , used to be my most awaited time of the year.....even more awaited than my birthday!!....even today (and more so now that, i live away from home...and look forward to joining my family for diwali vacations) and i think it will remains so forever..... & now that i think about it  the reason for this feeling of absolute delight that fills me every year is not 'cuz it's a holiday season..or not 'cuz of the expectations of new clothes,gifts & sweets...or presently, of being able to get away from work to go home, meet family and friends. Yes all these add to the cheer.....but I believe even if these were not there I would still feel the same joy at this's because it's not these material things about Diwali that have made me so happy all along......but it's this feeling that I have me it is a time of the year when every person ,be it a child or an adult or be it rich or poor, a person who is happy or sad, anxious or what ever state of mind......every person, maybe even for just a few moments, feels joy filling there hearts & lives....they feel a delight and enjoy it without giving a damn to anything else.
According to hindu religion...this festival has a divine symbolism......but to me this festival is divine not 'cuz of the mythological beliefs associated with it but 'cuz of this simple reason.......that this is a festival that brings happiness and cheer into our lives and all around us.....because it is the time of the year when we go about sharing...sharing our joy, our happiness,our achievements, our lives with family,with friends...sometimes even with strangers.....sharing trebles the joy....adds on to our own and of others....and brings to those who for some reason may not have is this sharing that gives this festival all it's cheer and pomp more than anything else.
over the past few years I have heard people say and felt it too that commercialisation as overtaken the spirit of Diwali.......but I still believe, just as I beleived years ago, when I wrote an assay on "Diwali the festival of lights"....that Diwali is a festival of lights...not the lights of the earthen lamp or the bulb strings......but of the enlightened lives & enlightened souls of people who are experiencing the most basic emotion of being human.....the joy of is just this feeling that we need to remind ourselves and rekindle the beautiful delight that this festival brings to our lives and those around us.

wishing u all a very happy,prosperous,safe and clean Diwali.

It was one of those nights when I had gone on the rooftop again, on a random impulse before turning in for the night..and I was mesmerized by this spectacle of nature that lay before my eyes..

                           The moon was shining big and bright with a slightly yellow aura which was blending into a orange hue before flying away as silver wisp and spreading across the clouds like small flakes of snow & lightning them with the silver moonlight across the grey black sky. Here and there I saw the clouds splitting apart the black sky with a few tiny twinkling stars hiding beneath them.

                 As I sat there drinking the scene with hungry eyes &  enjoying the cold air seeping inside my clothing and chilling my body cold with it's touch, I felt a delight rush through me..the delight of a child's innocent laughter. I felt a sense of peace and calm seep through me.  In that moment I suddenly felt connected with the whole world & heard my soul whispering to life, thanking it for blessing me with that beautiful night, that moment  which had filled my being with joy, embalming my tired soul with it's touch, making my life so full, so content, so rich & so beautiful.

                            In that moment I felt the love of the whole world and nature cleanse me. I felt all the blessings of the people who had ever blessed me, touch me and I felt greatful  to each one of them. 

                               Till that moment I could never understand what people meant when they said magic.....but in that moment I knew what it meant and experienced what it felt like.  In that moment I prayed, that just as this moment had touch me and made life magical for me..I too may bring the same feeling to the people I come across in life myself.  

There are times in life when I feel that life has not been fair enough to me...that I have not had enough in life or that life has been unusually tough on me...but I think that in these few moments of this beautiful night, life gave me more than enough and that now whenever I will have this feeling that I don' have enough gain, I remember this night, remember how blessed I am, remember that how loved I am and find my peace.

I wish u enough.
