The energy of creation

The phrases 'Our little bundle of joy', 'proud parents', etc. are very commonly heard from new parents or their near and dear. So, what was the bundle of joy? What or Why is the joy? and Why is it proud?

Parents claim themselves as creators of life. Is it really so? Who decided? Who created? and Who was the channel of creation?
In the vast quantum of energy surrounding this universe, we are negligible part. This energy, also called 'GOD' by few is neither the creator nor the destructor but a mere transformer between various forms of energy. We, as living persons are also made of this energy.

As is already proved by science, energy can neither be created not destroyed. It can only be transformed from one form to another. Few forms of energy as explained/ named in science being: gravitational energy, electro magnetic energy, magnetic energy, electrical energy, mechanical energy, rotational energy, etc..

All these are merely various forms of the powerful universal energy, which, according to spiritual gurus is termed as the spiritual energy. Hence, the entire space constitutes of nothing but energy. Every living and non living being has a fraction of this energy or in other words fractions of universal energy has transformed into various forms on the planet - living and non living beings. (By the word 'fraction' I do not mean that a being is limited to just a  fraction of energy, any being is always a source of infinite energy). Remember, even a non living being constitues of energy, termed as potential energy in science. In essence, there is energy everywhere in various forms in the universe.

So, when the universal energy has conspired to transform a part of it as a living form and start its life on the planet, it chooses a channel to do this. That is the reason it is said that we choose our mother, our father, our time of birth, our friends, our relatives and every other single relation that we would have to be in during our stay in this body.

On a higher level, cause of birth is the universal energy. The one who is born is nothing but a lump of energy with facial features similar to those in society he/she/it has chosen to be born.
Now, on a relatively lower level, or I would say, on another plane of thinking, it appears that birth occurs as a result of intercourse between two genders of life and that the parents choose or decide the birth time depending on when they think they are ready to have child. They think they are the masters of creation. But the underlying point is their course of action is all being directed by the universal energy and they are merely a channel or tool by which energy in living form is brought into existence.

Every living being, having realised the reason or purpose behind its existence, should strive to lead a blissful life and merge oneself with universal energy eventually. It is indeed the duty of parents, who were the channel for bringing energy into a life form to guide and help their children realise one's purpose of existence or birth.

When a child realises his ultimate goal in life and spends time in achieving that, in knowing the self is when the parents can actually feel satisfied and proud that they have done what they were intended to do.

Woman's Day 2015

As we celebrate this woman's day and talk about all the powerful things associated with the feminine character let us not forget that iota of libidinous nature hidden deep inside every(OK, i am not actually generalizing) male soul.
Every girl either virtually or physically becomes the subject of sexual viewing. 
A first grade girl is in the same level as a teen in this perspective. Except that the prior does not understand why her parents are really worried and keep asking her how her day was in the school or how her journey back home was in that school bus or school auto. 
Until an average woman is respected and not looked down as a subject of sex, she cannot be happy in all her experience with the society and surely, there is no place for happy woman's day as she keeps thinking of all that she has faced and most other young girls will be facing at some point of their interaction with male gender of society.
Amidst all this, please do not forget that you have a voice and you can raise that. Let there be no action taken against the culprit (which is what is happening right from the auto driver who molested a school girl to the bank employee who eyed a teen having all the drooling in his mind to the gang rape accused in nirbhaya case), but dear woman, please do not stay calm. Yell, shout, talk, write, type, post, do whatever, please don't stay calm. Staying calm and not reacting out of fear is doing injustice not only to the culprit and the situation but also to your own self which becomes a source of mental weakness. Have the courage to react and walk out of the situation not caring about the outcome and carry that confidence in all other areas of your life. You are sure to succeed.

A Child's Miracle



Kids are the best part of one’s life - I have heard this line many times, never gave it a serious thought until A had decided to come into my life. That statement, or in fact, any statement intending to describe one’s feeling in the company of kids cannot actually express the amount of happiness I experience when playing with A. Enacting certain thing repeatedly, making a funny sound again and again just to see her laugh is some kind of pleasure that is only to be felt and cannot be expressed in words. Talking to her just to listen to her ooo’s and aa’s, singing to her, telling her stories, placing her on the merry-go-round and running around along with it, while singing the song ‘wheels of the bus go round and round’ and her soft smile turning into an excited laughter, moving her along the slide while making the sound ‘zzuuy’, waiting for her to look at me and smile are just a fraction of sweet nothings of life. The awestruck expression when merely looking at everyday things around her like a water bottle, clock, bike, fan, sound of flowing water and the way she responds to these with her wonderful smile and an excited ‘aaa’ are simply amazing.

Kids don’t allow you to grow old. A, only, makes me feel younger and younger. Just waiting for the days to come when I will be running behind her in the park, become a kid, be her best friend, cycle with her, skate with her, play basketball with her!

And for all those who dread having children thinking they would be a burden in their life or their enjoyment phase would soon be over etc. - were you a burden in your parents' life? We or our thinking is a burden in our soul until kids teach us the way to enjoy life. There may be times when the kid goes out of control, throw tantrums, get you restless and whatever that you've been imagining - all that is just a phase and will pass by. Kids keep growing to eventually become mom's best friend and dad's best buddy.

Rich, poor, politician, actor, businessman, or any common man who is striving to make money and build his amount stack for personal enjoyment - be it anyone, true happiness can be  experienced only when you have kid(s).

A keeps me young. She keeps me fit. She keeps me sound. She takes away all the stress out of my mind. It is pure pleasure playing with her.
P.S. If possible, have kids when young :P They turn you younger and you get to spend a longer time with them in your life, also, having kids when young in your energetic years of life energises you even more. Your trips can wait only to have even more enjoyable vacations with your loved ones and to have many such in your lifetime. However, that's just my view, not to be taken seriously, no arguments.Remember, Each one is as unique as you are.

P.P.S. I'm having goosebumps while typing all this, just thinking about the time I spend with her. Such is little A's miracle.

Live the moment



Sitting by my little one's side, talking about the beauty of green grass, blue sky, flying birds and the air around. Watching her expressive response and listening to her blabbers. Life is good.

Yes, there is whole lot of work to be done. Piling household work, stacked up bugs/issues, cook food for the family, cook food for my daughter, feed my daughter, clean her, put her to sleep, keep cool when trying to understand what my daughter really wants, be of comfort to her, play with her. Not to forget those umpteen number of times when you would need to carry her while cooking in turn stressing your back and while managing all these, trying to allocate some time just for yourself, write it, draw it, sketch it, colour it, do whatever- this is basically the know-yourself time. 

Sure, life is fun when you have handful of tasks all the time and you excel in your own way.
Midst of all this, do not forget to lay back and breathe in the freshness of air around. Life is not just doing what you are doing for a living but about those little moments you spend with your loved ones.

This one is for all those lovely mothers who battle each day with both effort and excitement trying to spend as much time as possible with their child(ren) while fitting in all the other unavoidable tasks in a 24 hour period.

Of course, not to forget the fathers, who always lend a supportive hand at home even after a tiring day at work. ( the mother works too :P)

Essence of life is not just leading a repetitive period of 24 hours but to make memories of few moments here and there.

Yes. Life's good. Always.

Learning by living

This was the scene in our home some days back(keeps happening too). 10 mins after both kids woke up, they had an argument and me...
