A table with carvings

There are a few things,which deserve no words.For the simple fact,words are too low a decoration for them.I doubt if any one today can carve something like this.But i don’t blame people for not coming with such stuff today.Our style now is special too,in its own way,it a stage in history.

Just imagine how much of work the person who made this must have put into the piece.(S)he did it for a living,for a little bit of money.But did (s)he really do it for the money?couldn’t (s)he have done it for his passion?How much of the artist can we find in this work?Β 

I think,there is love behind this.Love for himself/herself.There is always sense of peace ,when you do something which you love.But then,we all know,that if you are born into a family of carpenters you work with wood.So did the artist hate what he did? And forced himself to do it?What do you think? Was it to satisfy his stomach or for the love of his work?Β 

And here is the full piece ..

does my existence on this earth matter to you?

September 15, 2008 § 14 Comments

So does what i think,matter? Well to me it surely does and to people with whom i interact it does.Even if it doesn’t matter to those around,it surely matters to me and i will give my opinion in any matter i please and no i am not going to give reasons for ,I do it,simple because i feel like doing it. Now does my existence matter,to people around me? Instead of me answering this,i think i should let people around me answer it.See this post to know what i am talking about here.

On a larger perpective,I feel everyone has a part to play.Every drop has its value in a ocean.Everything,has an influence on everything else.As Paulo says ”Β When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.”Β 

As a society too,what everyone thinks matters.And mostly people’s thinking is affected by what people around them think.History has seen many inspiring speeches which have lead to inspired actions.

An action in one thing,surely is going to induce a reaction.And like in a pond, even when a small pebble is thrown,there are ripples caused.

So again “does my existence on this earth matter to you? “

I just love this photo.I took this one about 3 years back,when i visited Mumbai πŸ™‚

I have always wondered what is on the ‘other side’,i.e. beyond the horizon.So for a second let go of your reality and think about things which might lie on the ‘other side’.Also what if you controlled sun,what will you do?

detachment in attachment?

August 4, 2008 § 14 Comments

This question came to me suddenly and have pondering it since morning,what do you think is detachment in attachment?

It does sound vague to a lot of people but i did managed to make a few people think.The funny thing was who ever i asked the question,thought i knew the answers and were reluctant to answer the question.

Anyway we read everywhere,that we need to be detached from everything.But the true meaning i have see is that while we love we need to be detached too.Now this is pretty vague,but the way i see it is this-you need to willing to separate from it.I.e.you should be ready to share.This is what Gibran says

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were.

But i think it can mean so much more,So what do you think detachment in attachment can mean?

And if do you think you can give up what you have?

On the fast lane

August 1, 2008 § 6 Comments

The road rushes by as we travel.All of us have asked the question,”are we traveling too fast? ”

So what do think? Are we moving too fast?

I think that this is normal.We are moving faster and faster because we are supposed to do so.Someday there will be a stop and we are going faster to it.Maybe this is nature’s way of saving itself from humans.We humans call ourselves special even though we too are a part of nature.Now that with our intelligence we have found out we are heading towards doom faster,what are we going to do?What will it take to get rid of us-tsunami,earthquake ,cyclones,heat waves,cold waves,drought,flood….? What can we do to stop our destruction?Will we ever realize that we needn’t cling to our lives ?Will we realize that survival isn’t everything,living.I know we all will but will it be too late?

Will our haste,make us into waste?Is it time to slow down,if yes how can we?

Where Am I?
