Stalkers

Stalkers! Yeah a breed of evil which by mistake were placed as humans! The simple reason being that I am being so hard in words is that these ****** dont even realize that they just spoil a person’s life! Had it been that you got guts, come in front, stand face to face and talk why play hied and seek and make one feel so uncomfortable! How can you be humans when you can’t even respect someone else’s life! Whatever!

Are you stalked by someone ever?? Where you could actually feel your heart throbbing so hard as if it will jump out of your body breaking through all boundaries or simply legs shivering as if you were on vibrating mode or sweating in the AC room! And in the extremes where you feel like ending yourself was the only option!

Well, than this one is for you! So what will you do in such case, first thing just let people around you know about it, may be your friend, a colleague or whomever you are comfortable with!

Next, be bold enough to approach the authorities. Specially for the girls, feminism is not a synonym to weakness! Get up, speak up, voice your own issues because you cant expect your father/brother/boyfriend/male best friend or husband to be there all the time! Of course they are your strength but be ready to face it alone as well!

Few other things, dont let it bother your peace, because that is what the stalker wants, to scare the shit out of you! So just have your routine, update your friends with your daily schedule! And live the life your way!

Ignore! Learn to ignore what is not in your concern!

And lastly! For the ones who take hard and heavy decisions of quitting their regular lifestyle, keep themselves indoor, stop being social and all that stuff (with extremes as said before) People come and go! You get a life only once! Enjoy that gift thoroughly!!

Friends! Live and let live! Let your presence be reason to smiles and happiness and not tears and pain for others!!!

Smile and spread smiles! Happy Morning!

Bappa Morya….!!!

One of the most awaited festival of entire Maharashtra – Ganesh Chaturthi!!!

Where Lord Ganesha is welcomed with great respect, joy and love to everyone’s home!! Staying with us for 10 days, he makes the atmosphere vibrate in energy – all to a different level!!

If Mumbai is known for the huge idols touching the sky from where the almighty showers his lovely blessings!!! We Punekars – rather proud Punekar welcome Bappa in grandeur of the traditional Dhol-Tasha, lezim the colorful rangolis and even the air sings along with us – Ganpati Bappa Morya Mangal Murthi Morya!!!

Today let us just get briefed that why and how is Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrated?

The first section of the Mahabharata states that it was Ganesha who wrote down the text to Vyasa’s dictation. Ganesha is said to have agreed to write it only if Vyasa never paused in his recitation. Vyasa agrees on condition that Ganesha takes the time to understand what was said before writing it down.

So, Ganesha began to write Mahabharata along with Ved Vyasa. They wrote Mahabharata in 10 days without taking a pause. They didn’t eat/drink anything during these 10 days. Due to this, Ganesha was dehydrated.

So, a layer of clay(mitti) was applied all over his body. Then he was asked to get in river and cool down.(Something similar to Ganesh Visarjan)

And this is why we celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi and immerse Ganeshji in water.

How is it celebrated?

Lord Ganesha – believed to be the remover of obstacles (Vighnaharta), and the god of intellect and wisdom (Buddhi Devta).

Worshipped by nearly all castes and all around the globe – Japan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh etc. Ganesha being everyone’s favorite be it the Bollywood celebrities or the common Man – I am sure everyone in our childhood must have gone crazy for the way the decorations will be done, who will get Bappa home, who will be the one performing the first aarti etc. The grand celebration starts with the installation of Ganesh idols in colorfully decorated temporary made structures – one which is made at our homes – where creativity just flows at peak – Bappa sitting on mountain type structure, at times on bed of flowers etc.  Followed by the rituals – Pranapratishhtha – the process of infusing the deity into a murti or idol, Shhodashopachara – 16 forms of paying tribute to Ganesha,

At the time of the ritual coconut, jaggery, modaks, durva i.e. blades of grass and hibiscus flowers (His favorite flowers was what mom always told me from childhood) are offered and throughout the ceremonial occasion several hymns echoes down the mind of devotees bringing in a divine peace.

During the 10 days – if in case you have ever been part of the competitions that are held in societies, you will surely recall all those fancy dress where one becomes doctor, the other Bhaji wali and its all fun and enjoyment. 10 days just fly off in the air of happiness!!

On the last day, immersion of the statues in the ocean, or other bodies of water, and their subsequent destruction serves as a reminder of this belief. (These are traditionally known as Uttarpuja – Puja after which the idol could be shifted after it’s infusion, Ganpati Visarjan – immersion of the Idol in the river.)

 

Lastly. I would like to make an appeal – the tradition of immersing Bappa in river bodies was not a harm as the idols made then were of clay, mud and colurs were all natural and hence were no harm to the water animals! But in todays times the idols are all made of non-degradable material which harms the water diversity and endangers their living. Start a change from yourself immerse your “Ladka Bappa” in the artificial pools created by the local authorities.

(I am really proud that even though I was brought up in a traditional family where traditions are strictly followed as they were, on understanding the need to change our thoughts, we have been practicing Ganesh Visarjan in a self-made water tank sort of structure from past 3 years and will be continuing the same.)

Are You Emotionally Stable?

Stability – we run for financial stability, we run for stable house, stable family life…stable this stable that!!! But what about emotional stability, do we ever concentrate on that, rather do we even take a pause to think about that???

What is emotional Stability?

It simply means that you are synchronizing your thoughts with your actions in such a way that they contribute to the betterment of your soul!!! It means developing such lifestyle where there is harmony in what you do and what you speak!

How can you be emotionally stable?

  1. Learn to speak what you think?

It is better to speak right in front then to sit and back bite! Back biting helps no one, not the person about whom you speak neither one self nor the ones to whom you recite the entire conversation. Say for example – There is a person at your workplace whom you are not comfortable with but somehow you cannot express that to the respective person, you sit and blab ill things about that person during your lunch time outcome of which is you spread negativity everywhere, harming your own mental health!

  1. Either change the things you cannot accept or accept the things you cannot change:

There are only two options either you accepting the situation or you changing the situation, when you try sticking in middle is the time when you create pain for your own self! You get disturbed and spread the same vibrations of imbalance everywhere you go!

  1. Be choosy!

By saying be choosy, I mean to say evaluate all your choices in every possible way! Be selective in the friend circle you sit, the attire you wear, the places you visit, the words you use each and every small thing counts when it comes to sum up things about you as a person! Learn to choose things you want to do and things you want to avoid.

  1. Say no to negativity!

Keep yourself surrounded with positive people who have big dreams and are ambitious. Keep yourself into positive actions. In case situations do not allow you to have a positive outlook, try being neutral. Stop cribbing and start acting to solve problems. Things happen the way you think about them. If you have positive attitude of completing a task it will be done and vice-a-versa.

  1. Master your emotions

Cry when you feel like crying, not when people make you cry. It depends upon you when to react and how much to react. Not everything needs to be responded, few things can be ignored right away!

If you achieve success here, then no hurdles are too high for you. A healthy mind generates more output then a clever brain!

amazing balance blur boulder
It isn’t the stress that makes us fall, It is the way to respond to that stress that makes us fall!! and that is when emotional Stability comes into light!!!

Time – Best Teacher

Teacher’s day,

Well, today scrolling down on my feed page, I just came across a more interesting definition of “Teacher”  -and that was time!! Giving it thought actually dragged me to my laptop and blog something for the day!!

Thoughts just gushed after reading that line which simply read as “Happy Teachers Day” – Time

There were memories which took me back to childhood, when time taught me to get up by myself every time I fell running on that playground!

Then came the first ever time that I left dad’s little finger and had to face the world all by myself.

That first time I raised my voice against the injustice I saw in bus – Time taught me to be outspoken!

Then were the college days, when time taught me that nothing comes served in your plate, to get things one needs to walk out, turn and face some tussles, and there you get what you worked for!

Then I entered Chartered Accountancy and here Time finally became the ultimate teacher (May-November games had its own way to teach me struggle and work hard consistently)

Time taught me that wait and watch is only a myth – It is all about do and deserve!!

Time taught me that you can’t get aside by working hard for a day – you need to be consistent to give in your 100% and then expect that your result “CAN” be positive!

During articleship – time taught me to be patient enough to hear more and speak less! To learn more and preach less! To be a silent observer and reply only when asked!

Time taught me that you never get free time! Your priorities decide when you are free!!

Time taught me that once gone it never comes back!! Live each moment to its fullest, enjoy every minute as it passes by, because it slips off your hand in a way that just undone!! There is no Control+Z option available so simply create memories – good memories and Control+S!!!

Happy Teacher’s Day – To a common teacher for each and every person, of each and every age group!!!

Well this was something I did discover – I won’t say I learned because it was kind off hidden, I knew it but someone had to come up and tell me “Yaar tu aise soch, Ye tujhse ho sakta h!!!”

 

{I would rather like to continue the mind blowing things I personally learnt during the session in a summary form (I believe this was a bit poetic as well!!) Also jotting the same in English so that maximum people can make the most beneficial use of it like the ones who attended it could do!!}

abstract blackboard bulb chalk
It was indeed a session with lit me with things I knew but were still lost in the run of competition and so called hectic schedule!!!!

Coming back soon with all the thoughtful thoughts I unfurled. Wait there for Part 2 of the same which will indeed enlighten you as well…. Till then Smile and spread smiles!!!!

Get up and work!!!

It was a failure….!!! A bad failure again and she was left broken…. Shattered down in pieces… Complete depression as to what next… Because the result of course mattered a lot… And was like a gate pass to her dreams… CA!!! And multiple attempts were hand in hand… Was what she knew… But then not again was what her every drop of sweat she shed studying day in and out was screaming!!! But then that was it… The results were out and it was “FAIL
She did start doubting herself and abilities now… Can I do this? Will it be possible? Were the 1000 questions crowding in her mind… Hitting nails on her future plans, the pain of which could be seen flowing through her eyes!! In entire darkness, there comes a fairy… A fairy friend… “Figgy” and the time she wasn’t able to trust herself, this beautiful fairy says… Get up girl, you can do it.. Not because of any other reasons other then the fact – YOU HAVE TO DO IT!!! You chose the dream… You chose the path knowing that it was tough… Because you knew you could do it, because you knew you are that capable… Not everyone comes here, if you dared to step into this…. Just go and complete it… Just go and give it your best…

That fairy didn’t speak a word of sympathy… She didn’t say that “may be hard luck this time… ” All she said was… Girl, get up and put in efforts, somewhere somehow your dedication was 99% and failure was because you lacked 1% to give in your 100%!!! So don’t shed those tears… Perspire and rise up…

That fairy didn’t wipe her tears… All she said was “tears symbolize that you accept you fell short of efforts… So go and give in again… ”

That fairy didn’t even ask her to take a break for all her depression, she just said… Life played on you… Now its your turn to play back… You were thrown right on your face…
(where accept parents no one stood back with you) so now you have to throw back and prove… You are not a FAILURE. Its matter of your hardwork… Consistent hardwork… Your sacrifices…

You feel insecure about friends leaving you if you are not in contact, then remember people who leave are not permanent and people who are permanent never leave…

You feel insecure about your love cheating, then that’s not love because love binds hearts forever… And it promotes each others dream!!!

Right now… All you need is your career… Your attempt…your goal… Cz may be you will get out of depression in a day or two… But there your dad is still struggling hard to see his daughter’s failure… He still silently cries late nights and prays for your success… There your Mom still quietly adds that extra almond in your breakfast saying this will help you in good memory and you will write your papers well next time…

They both just wanna see you successful, Girl!!!!
Saying this… the fairy sums it up as “Start studying and stop pretending” FOCUS and the next result should be exactly what you want!!!
PASS

The Girl was lucky enough to get that fairy in her life… And boost her confidence!!!

Guys this one is for you…. A fairy for u…. If this was a attempt where you gave efforts and still had to accept a failure… Accept your mistakes and give it another try… Sit with your books… Avoid social media… Learn write read use any technique suitable for you… Just go and give the attempt, but this time like a warrior… You are wounded with an failure and in hindi it is said “Ghayal sher jyada khatarnak hota h” Go and give your 100% the result is waiting…. The prefix of CA to your name will be your reward!!!

Just give in your 100%, not a little less nor a little more!!!

(dedicated to a friend who’s been source of motivation to me… My Fairy…. Love u Figgy… Thank you… And I swear this time it will be PASS)

Guru Pournima

One of the best days to honour a person who helps us in building the foundation of life – “Guru Pournima”. Yeah I said Foundation because no one learns things by birth, you are taught at times by life and at times by people in life… These people are though not always there to guide you for a lifetime they surely show you ways to come out of all difficult situations of life.

“They teach you come out of the storm even with a broken oar

The darkest clouds and windy nights are no more scary to soar

They guide you on the unknown roads

They help you solve the difficult codes!!

They throw light on darkest realities of life

They solve the mysteries of all the strife

They mould the clay to shape of pot

They help you and your dreams to tie a knot”

 

916

 

They are amazing… A tribe of people who are working towards the betterment of society.

 Well, are you a teacher??? Yes you are… if you inspire your own self for being better than what you were yesterday. If you help your friends excel in their academics… If you assist your co-workers to work in better style….You need not have that blackboard and chalks to be a teacher…Life experiences makes you learn and tech as well…. You are a teacher at times knowingly and at times unknowingly.

So, it is everyone’s day…Happy Guru Pournima to everyone out there!!!

But then, before summing it all, there is one biggest teacher for everyone, be it a newborn or be it a old man, be it that street beggar or be it a man in his Benz, be it anyone. This one teacher is common to all… By now you all must have guessed it right? The teacher is none other than LIFE!!!

The greatest teacher of all times… I remember reading a forwarded message which had so much truth in it….Life is a teacher which tests you first and then teaches you (too deep to get the actual meaning I want to convey) And it is so very true. Life puts you in situations where you cant even see your self surviving but it also shows you ways to come out living a more luxurious life than before!!!

 

Keep learning…Keep teaching!!! Enjoy the beautiful gift – LIFE!!

Smile and spread smiles!!!
