Note# 0: Haiku For Me

The sky over me is cast with specks of horizontal thin clouds in all directions emerging from a round blue sky over a hill, much like the sunrays of the blue sun. I find from quite some months, I have been observing the beauty of nature more subtly than earlier. What could be the reason. Yes, I started writing haiku few months back and it has changed my world of metaphors, free verse, prose intellectualism and imagery.

It could well be a healing tool. The mind wanderlust can stop right here because you can observe summer and winter solstice without being at equator or hear the chirp of migratory birds without being to any famous marshland or wetland reserve. All you need is to keep your words within the syllable count of minimum 17 syllables and pour your heart and mind in it. When you read out your outburst you can feel how much connected you are with the nature. The deviation in life due to complex worldly situation we learn through newspapers, t.v. or internet can suddenly go thin.

Though haiku cannot offer you any solution but surely it can make you understand what you love the most and cannot do without. May be it can serve you as the blue sun.

celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
