When Duryodhana Wept in Regret..


The sound of shell conch coming from the temple in nearby monastery announced beginning of the day after the Great War. But this sound was probably not getting through his ears. He was able to hold his consciousness in the unconscious state as if waiting for something before the longest sleep. Duryodhana, shattered and diminishedContinue reading “When Duryodhana Wept in Regret..”

Power of Simple Changes (Anniversary Special)


Sixth is good from any international standard. Indian standard will endorse it on 25th and 50th.. at silver jubilee or golden jubilee. Nevertheless, mine is 6th today, the 6th anniversary of marriage. In one of my posts ‘Unconditional Love’, I discussed ideal, spiritual form of love, which is more motherly in nature. Then ‘Which CategoryContinue reading “Power of Simple Changes (Anniversary Special)”

SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS


In human relationship the only true connection is love. Usually it stays longer. In case of a true love it stays forever. I wonder whether it stands true associating my profession? Are my professional aspirations are linked with my love to profession? If i have to honestly answer this question, I’d rather like to debateContinue reading “SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS”

IS ONLY KARMA ENOUGH?


I was referring Bhagvad Gita in some other context and found that its philosophy is a great tool for personal effectiveness and success in life. In one word in which this holy book could be summarized is ‘Karma Yoga’. I tried to make some inferences related with philosophies of ‘Karma yoga’ in context on our personal and professional life. TheContinue reading “IS ONLY KARMA ENOUGH?”

Why was Barbarika sacrificed?


The world has witnessed many battles. However, if there was ever a battle that symbolised the fight for justice and righteousness, it would be the Mahabharata. That’s why, irrespective of the outcome we respectfully acknowledge the role of Bhishma, Dronacharya and Karna, who fought from the losing side.

Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss?


All inherited moral laws taught me that being selfish is the least desired thing. But when I grew up, I learned that this is the most desired option, your mind recognizes when it comes to relative success. Relative success is a success in comparison with some other success referred as benchmark. That is how weContinue reading “Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss?”

Give me facts, I need reasons to believe


We need reasons to accept a view point and logic to change our own. ‘Reasons’ are typically introduced as ‘facts that count in favor’ of an action or attitude* (from Philosophy, et cetera by Richard). However, reason to believe does not mean that the ‘reason’ is definitely a ‘fact’. Last few weeks were full ofContinue reading “Give me facts, I need reasons to believe”

More will always be less


The article in today’s cosmic uplink section of economic times argued the type of goal. And I, in agreement with the post, infer that most of us have more of self centric goals than even a decimal of self realization goal. The phenomenon of self realization evades fear of failure and sense of comparison toContinue reading “More will always be less”
