Monday Prayers

Saketri Temple, Panchkula
Saketri Temple, Panchkula
My talkative mind stops, being Monday does not matters but for office goers. My temptation comes from the root of who I am. It is during the breakfast which I try to wait over before I offer my prayers to God Shiva, Maa Parvati and Lord Ganesha. As usual unlike anything the whiteness of milk pouring over Shivlinga, slowly the Rupas emerge before my eyes. Beginning is subtle, thereby dhop dena to the idols what is unseen, undiscovered, undecipherable enters into their own realm. 

Meditation is of forms, one which always detaches from the visions or thoughts that are redundant in life to focus on inner energy and gain ability to utilize it. I believe however, meditation in Shaivism context is based on attachment. Confused? So, the balance between corporate, social, societal, legal etiquette are certainly driving the world crazy but every these are derived from a great religion, which in India probably is Hinduism. Without naming it, the food gluttony, aspirin over the counter, buildup of recycle material for a single woman like me can be injurious without any counseling or guidance from any quarters. A minute by minute life elapses even for those settled in joint family, hardly any these days, and on particular day one is able to rejoice and thank for the blessings and joy.

These miniscule enormities like sighs soon preceded by calm rendition of “OM NAMAY SHIVAY” bring a shower of peace. I read somewhere in a novel perhaps, how a person in lurking distress was consistent in offering gratitude to his/her personal deity but unavoidable cannot be detected, even avoided. I do not want to agree or disagree because Bhakti is a karma and in it salvation has its path, something you will witness and would not be permitted to doubt about. Between the prayer ritual, I am really sensitive because my doshas perfect me at one occasion and hold me responsible at another. The incense scent from the directions of temples, paternal home, other religious places which I have attended earlier sometimes vividly flow during prayer. There are long and wide stories keeping me accommodated as per se on my religious path.

A Visit to Lake - (For Now)

Early last month, the sense was chaotic. On contrast watching people go to their businesses on a relatively cloudy day, a sudden thrush was beginning of climate change in this region, I was unsure of visiting lake (artificially developed) Sector 42, Chandigarh. 

The nature has serenity, there is little excuse for a poet. Few timid steps were to escape the formalities like greeting at entrance or stand before marvelous structures, nevertheless I am ardent devotee of Chandigarh architecture. Nothing further let me escape a heron's silent walk across grass, fresh cut grass, water seeping beneath a bridge and ignoring the oblivion an honest urge to reach the waters first.

The lake as it is stood beautiful without a reflection of clouds or sky, bounded by sitting platform which one reminds of comfort and invigorating view. Otherwise undulating with one so serene, from the uppermost platform the eye travels from this shore to last filled with hues. The poem has to be born and "For No…

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…
