A Symbol for Communion with the Divine ...

Paulo Coelho always presents SEX as a sacred and divine act. In Eleven Minutes, he explained the spiritual nature of it, and in Brida he presents how Sex is a symbolic means of communion with The God.
Through sex, it means a force, a re-encounter with the meaning of life. Having sex with someone in bed isn't the same as knowing it as a force. Both men and women are extremely vulnerable to the force of sex, because, during sex, pleasure and fear are present in equal measure. Because anyone who comes into contact with sex knows that they are dealing with something which only happens in all its intensity when they lose control. When we are in bed with someone, we're giving permission to that person not only to commune with the body, but the whole being. The pure forces of life are in communication with each other, independently of us, and then we can't hide who we are. During sex, its difficult to deceive the other person...
It doesn't matter whether you're seeking wisdom or pleasure through the force of sex, it will always be a total experience, because its the only experience that touches all five senses at once. All out channels with the other person are wide open.... At the moment of orgasm, the five senses vanish and you enter the world of magic; you can no longer see, hear, taste or smell. During these long seconds, everything disappears, to be replaced by ecstasy. It is exactly the same ecstasy as that attained by mystics after years of renunciation and discipline.
Make sure that when you touch the other person, all your five senses are working, because sex has a life of its own. The moment you begin, you're no longer in control; it takes control of you. And whatever you bring to it - your fears, your desires, your sensibility - will remain...
When you have sex, take with you to bed only love and your senses, all five of them. Only then will you experience communion with GOD...

Lack of Originality or just inspired by ?

Recently, I got a mail about Bollywood music director Pritam's list of copied songs. It seems like he has never composed music himself till date but copied or got inspired by music from all over the world. And to the irony, this guy has won many awards for his copied music. If you see the list, you can conclude this moron is the baap of Anu Malik, who was once famous for copying music. And, people like Pritam comes for judging talents in the reality shows in Indian TV channels. Mann, this is totally unacceptable. But, looking at the positive side of this, probably we can say that Music is a universal religion, so just spread it. Be it in Hindi Language or in Korean Language. But the only ill effects of this, as I see is, atleast Pritam should acknowledge the original artist. Whatever, as long as I get to listen to some good soothing music, I have no issues about who composed it 1st and who copied it.

These days I am reading Paulo Coelho's new offering to the world (In English). Its called Brida. This was the 3rd novel by him after The Alchemist and released in Brazil in 1990. The book is about a young girl Brida in the city of Dublin, her quest for knowledge, wisdom and her journey in bridging the visible and the invisible world. Just finished 85 pages or so and I loved it. A girl, who is enthusiastic in learning magic to find out the supreme truths of life and as she seeks her destiny, how she balances between her normal life, relationships and her urge to transform herself. In between the pages I read so far, I found a sentence too much soothing and inspiring. It says...

"Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong... Even the clock which has stopped working shows correct time twice a day..."

I can feel the gravity of this sentence, and for all these Paulo Coelho is my one of the most favorite author. He writes in such a philosophical genre that even the obvious stuffs look so spiritual, so inspiring. Lets see, what Brida has in store for me.

Cut that Crap !!!

Pune Mirror posted a news item in its 26th June - '08 edition about some so-called obscene/vulgar or not-acceptable pictures of some girl students of Symbiosis, Pune (I am not sure about it) been posted in the internet. The newspaper has put this news item it's 1st page by blurring all the objectionable positions or body parts. Thats the sorry state of Indian media. Anyways, I don't have any problems with that as long as Pune Mirror keeps coming free of cost with TOI. However, in the news item, the newspaper has reported as some senior student of Symbiosis, Pune quoting on anonymity that these types of obscenity are common in Symbiosis Hostels and are mostly done by students from the North East India. Now, who is that anonymous moron ? I have seen those pictures in the internet and nowhere those girls look like they belong to the North East. So, how the f**k can he generalize it ? I am born and brought-up in the North East of India and I know low-waist jeans or cleavage baring t-shirts will come as a shock for the main stream India. Mann, look at it from the style factor, you won't get an erection and you will never feel frustrated or desperate. Dude, calling yourself as a pass out from such a premier institute like Symbiosis, and make such types of double standard comments !!! Cut that crap and try to grow up. Think twice before making such comments to the media. Take it as a mere advice or suggestion.

Viva La Vida (Spanish for Long Live Life or Live the life)

"Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends" - the fourth studio album of Coldplay, released a few days back. Happen to listen to the numbers, but did not like them much. I Felt a bit betrayed by Coldplay after this. I was a die hard fan for them after Parachutes, A Rush of Blood to Head and X&Y. Mann... they were awesome. But, somehow this 4th album did not attract me much. However they could successfully try the alternative rock genre in this album. Of all the songs, I like Violet Hill which is being played in VH1 very often these days. The title song is also okay type and Life in Technicolor, I like its music. But, not liking just one album or some of their songs don't really repel me from the music of ColdPlay. X&Y was #1 in both UK and US charts for many weeks in 2005. Hope this new album also get the similar response.

Khuda Ke Liye ... In The Name of God

Last night, I got to watch the much acclaimed movie Khuda Ke Liye. I had heard a lot about it, but when I actually watched it, I was really spellbound. It was a too good movie and I think it should be watched once by all. The movie has captured some of plots which are actually happening in and around us. The direction and the performances of the actors was great. More than anything I liked the theme of it. The movie actually awakens some of the thoughts and beliefs which many of us (including me) had taken for granted and had generalized for all. Seriously, a must watch.

Lets' Exorcise...

Evils are a part of life and I believe this thought is the most simple relief we can think of while bad omens haunt our lives. After all, life moves on and we can just christen those bad happenings as lessons for a better future. At this point of time, lets practice exorcism to drive away the evil which invaded our lives, stayed with us and sucked our blood. And the only way to do it is to wipe off a part of our lives from Nov '05 to Feb '08. Lets wipe out all those moments in professional as well as personal lives which remind us of the evil demon and start a fresh. And lets pray to the all mighty that no one else in this world come under the demonic influence of this iniquity. I know many are still under its influence, knowingly or unknowingly. I wish, they get the will power and the energy to come out of it. And last but not the least, lets hope that our lives will be free from such evils in the future which malign the scared things in life like friendship, relationships and above all people's trust and faith. Amen...

The Days were clear, I was blind ...

Note:: All characters and incidents in this post are real. Any resemblance to a person or people is purely intentional.

...people says I am a pessimist. I believed I was a pessimist. Then why did I use to see flowers even in a cradle of filth ? Probably I was too good to see dark sides of people or I was a mere chutiya. Not able to identify the actual image of someone at the right time actually screwed me for sometime. And the consequences were trust and faith getting betrayed, waste of valuable metabolic as well as natural energy, and more than all these are repentances I would face. Why was I so good ? This question will haunt me for sometime now and I will surely get nightmares. God, I know that you are aware that I am not religious but I am not an atheist also. Today, I curse you. I am asking you why do you make people so filthy and so scuzzy ? Even if you make such people, why do you send them to live with good people ? To teach us a lesson or what ... ??? Is it a joke for you to see the consequences people like me face because of being good to people? But, you know something... you have no right to do so. But there is no use blaming you. You have given me a brain to think. And I did not make use of it. Although the days were clear, I was a subterfuge. I feel so yucky, so rueful... mind is filled with remorse and regret. I wish I could realize some time back ...

"lifes just a blast,
its movin really fast
better stay on top
or life will kick you in the ass "

And, I wanna dedicate the following few lines to the real characters involved in this post...

"aare ruk ja re bandhe
aare thum ja re bandhe
ki kudrat has padegi ho..."

Kab tak dusro ke g***d maroge? Stop Now... Enough is Enough.

Some recent developments in the recent times are actually forcing me to denounce a part of my professional as well as personal life from Nov. 2005 to Feb. 2008. If I think about those parts of life in this period of time, I wish I could wipe it off from the calendar. The phrase Past Is Gone is probably the only relief. If I don't think about the shock and trauma, I can only say that some people are not good at anything. If they are not being good, they are also not expert in being bad. These people are like parasites, blood suckers. Wherever they go, they carry diseases. With all these words, I am not trying to be a moral cop; but yes ... in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holi Spirit, I denounce this shit. Filthy people like this have no right to betray other's trust, faith... whom they call friends. For personal pleasures (physical or any other) or profit, these f**king people are ready to ruin any body's life. Be it for getting good perks in professional life or for getting daily tasks done or for just grabbing opportunities, they are at the forefront of screwing others. Another aspect is the trouble other people face by their deeds. Putting more stress on the view that "some people are not good at anything", I will say, if you are doing something do in the right spirit. Doing something might mean writing a piece of code to doing something for the entertainment industry. Holy Shit !!!

Everyday I want to fly...

The new Vodafone Ad for its customer service with the punch line "Happy To Help". It is one of the cutest video I have seen. The little girl as well as the cute pug is awesome. So, is the lyrics. It says...

(pum pum..pupum pum)

Everyday I want to fly, stay by my side
Everyday I want to dream, stay by my side
Every morning I wish I could just play
Wish the mornings would just stay…..

(pum pum..pupum pum)

Everyday I want to fly, stay by my side
Everyday I want to dream, stay by my side

Those 2.5 months

In my 10th as well as my 12th, while preparing for my board exam I remember those 2.5 months. Exams were usually scheduled for mid February and all school / college exams were over by end of November. So, December, January and half of February were very crucial for the final preparation. But the chilly winters of Shillong was a big curse for this. Mann, you feel so sleepy in the evenings, but still you have to study. There is no other choice. I used to wake up by 7:00 AM, and start studying by 7:30 till 10:00 type. Dad goes to office by that time, so have the morning food with dad at that time. Then I take break, read newspapers and play with my dog. I had a dog named Kalu those days and he was a great source of entertainment for me. I used to read 2 newspapers, The Sentinel which is a English regional paper of the North-East and The Hindustan Times. Then start my next phase of study by 11:30 and study till 2:00. The afternoon time I used to concentrate on subjects which involved problem solving rather than theory, so that I don't feel sleepy. In back ground I used to listen to Lunch Hour Western Music telecasted in AIR - Shillong. Mom will supply me with sweet oranges during this time. The winters in Shillong is very famous for oranges. I swear such tasty oranges can't be found in any other parts of the country. The I would take a nap by 2:00 to 3:00 followed by a cup of kadak chai. Then, I will again start for study, study for 1.5 or 2.0 hrs. During winters, it used to get dark by 4:30 or 5:00. So, I will just come out of my house by 4:15 or so... to meet my friends. There was a Newspaper stand where we used to meet everyday and do gossip. Mann, sometimes the gossips will last till 1 hrs or so and the topics included everything from politics to study matters to girls in the colony. Return home by 5:30, and after having evening snacks, I will sit for studying till 10:30. 10:30 was our usual dinner time and the same time is still followed by my parent till today. Then I will start with my final phase of study at 11:00 and continue till 12:30 max. By that time parent were fast asleep. Those days, we did not have cable connection in our house, but we used to get 3 channels in our TV for some signal leakage or so. MTV, Star Sports and Start Movies. I will watch MTV Grind for 10 - 15 minutes in mute volume and go for sleep before 1AM. The above was almost the same routine for preparation leave days for those 4 years, yet I never felt bored or annoying. And, when I recollect those days, I really feel a great deal of nostalgia. I remember, we used to burn charcoal to keep the room warm during these months and I will put some potatoes and 1 brinjal to burn. I used to eat this almost everyday and it was so yummy. My dog, whom I remember till today, was a great source of zeal and enthusiasm. It was such a simple life, yet so great and worth remembering for years to come.

Some rememberings...

As I was loitering down memory lane, I recollected my days as a student during '97 - '00 days. These four years were crucial for me and for what I am today. Those days, the SSLC (10th Board) Exam constituted the syllabus of 9th as well as 10th class. So preparation for 10th Board actually started from beginning of 9th class itself. These days the as aspirants are relived of such a huge syllabus. I was a very studious guy, studying all the time. I believe I used to study on average 7-8 hrs everyday. This increased to 12-14 hrs. during the preparation leave days. I remember few days when I had a record of 16 hrs. study in a day. But, studying was not always magging. It was a very constructive study. The same style continued in my 10+2 also. I know, what I am today is not because of me being intelligent or of high caliber. All was because of hard work, constructive use of time and of course devotion & dedication. I still believe that 3 D's in life can overcome any hurdles. Determination, Dedication and Devotion. My Dad, My Mom and My Bro... three greatest blessings for me. Mann, I still think how my dad could manage to give a good life with proper education to me and my bro just with single digit salary. Hats Off to you Mom and Dad. I want parents like you in my next life and all the lives I get down the line.
