    Dharma is the cure for all grief.

    Practice Dharmic lifestyle to help with managing worldly grief.

    Believe in the Gods and karma

    सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज।

    अहं त्वा सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः।।

    “Abandoning all attributes, come to Me as your sole refuge; I shall rescue you from all sins; don’t be sorrowful”

    Some fucking useful tips  

    Some fucking useful tips to prevent yourself from getting pissed off too often. 
    1. Buy a well spaced and ergonomic keyboard. That way it won’t fucking affect your wrists and you won’t get rsi or carpel tunnel syndrome that early. You will concentrate on working more then just feeling that nagging pain. 
    2. Buy a good monitor with full HD resolution. 
    3. Buy good quality headphones so that you prevent fucking negative people barking around you. 
    4. Don’t ever hide emotions for any reasons whatsoever…if you like someone say so. If you hate someone say so. 

    Be prepared to accept bricks because you are a badass. 
    5. Disable that fucking autocorrect and for that you must fucking know your spellings right. 
    6. Use this phase –  fuck off to anything that pissed you.
    Yeah that completes it.

    The story of wisdom.  

    There is no freaking story – just keep your mind open and just do things that are right, even if they seemingly look hard.  

    That is wisdom. 

    (I wanted to write something very awesome cinematic stuff, but because I am wise, I just wrote what is needed)

    the jinx of 4 

    I think there is something unlucky about us indians when we enter the finals of competitive events, example like Olympics..

    1. Milkha Singh – came 4th in Rome Olympics in 60s.
    2. PT Usha – came 4th in 80s.
    3. Abhinav Bindra – stood 4th in Rio 2016 Olympics
    4. Dipa Karmakar – 4th in final vault events in 2016 Olympics.

    All came close..but so close and so far..the first 3 take glory, rest disappear in oblivion…

    What might be the possible reason we Indians falter at the very last moment ? Is it the fitness issue or lack of practice or inability to handle high pressure or lack of final killing instinct move thought that prevents us from getting to glory? Or is it mix of all?

    In my life so far, i have realized that inability to handle pressure is #1 reason why most of us fail to give our 100% effort in accomplishing certain tasks. This pressure can arise due to many factors but is there any way to minimize pressure or ultimately reduce it to a level that its presence makes no difference ?

    May be there is. Right now i am reading this informative book – https://www.amazon.com/Performing-Under-Pressure-Science-Matters/dp/0804136726 to know about how to handle high pressure backed up by science..i have not finished reading it but so far whatever i read has got good content.

    I am also thinking of – ‘algorithmizing life using patterns‘ using my computer science background to understand more about life and how to deal with it. I bet knowingly or unknowingly we make use of algorithms to take decisions in life but few are aware of it and virtually no documentation exists that can relate cs algorithms to life..

    What is relation in life decisions and pressure handling? Simple – take best decisions and prevent getting in pressure cooker like situations. Of course it is not so easy to eliminate pressure completely from life, but who knows – by observing life patterns, documenting them and maybe trying to algorithmize them, we can greatly reduce stress that arises in pressure situations and lead a better life, make efficient use of resources..i was thinking on this concept since quite long  but found today to write something about it..

    I wrote this post because last night i watched Dipa Karmakar getting 4th place in Olympic Gymnastic finals and just felt – how is it to face high pressure while competing with top athletes *with terrible burden of expectations from almost quarter of 1.5 billion indian population*

    Scary even to think but this girl almost made it. It was tough luck but maybe next time she might make it. Till it happens, praying for rest of indian contingent to win atleast one medal in #rio2016

    Also, wishing you all a Happy Independence Day 2016. May the future be good and awesome for all.

    since so long 

    when was the last time you didnt had any label or string attached with you. a life like a free bird perching on any tree he likes..

    no email id, no cell phone, no job profile, no gimmicks, no one to bother for, no information overload, no social networks, no youtube, nothing..my first computer didnt even had network card. only thing we used to do was to play shareware games provided with PC Quest and Chip. and some bit of C programming.

    my journey in this www digital world started in 2003 when i registered for my first yahoo id. and its expanding and growing since then..

    2003 seems like some 6 months ago..in reality, its almost 10 years ago. time flew so fast. freaking 10 years. imagine counting 10 years. how much is that?

    dont know what i will type 15 years after today. i will leave this post for that time.

    you got a brand new mobile handset..people get interested and ask if they can see it ‘closely’….you give it to them..after some time they return it back..you find your messages being read/deleted, your email settings gone haywire, theme is changed, ringtone is something different..thats not your handset..thats you they have tried to change…

    it happens all time..learn to say no..just say no..

    I solved a crossword successfully. I am happy. Took me 7.5 minutes for a 9×9 english crossword. It was my first time. 😉

    Life too is like a crossword. Every day a new puzzle is encountered and we have to solve it. Many times no hints are present and we have to fill in the meaningful gaps on our own. Some can do it with ease, some have to struggle.

    Thats the way it goes.

    Olympic Medal, Apple iPhone, and me 

    Last two weeks were of great hustle bustle for Indian sports. Abhinav Bindra won the first individual gold medal in 10 m shooting event for independent India, later Shushil Kumar, a Najafgarh lad fetched a bronze in freestyle wrestling, the last one was in 1952 Helsinki Olympics, and on the same day, Bhiwani based boxer, Vijender Kumar ensured a sure bronze in boxing, 75 kg catagory. So far, this has been the best sports performance by Indian in any major sport event, the other mentionable achievements being winning the 1983 ICC World Cup under Kapil Dev, and the 2007 Twenty-20 world cup win under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy. Some people said that Abhinav won gold because he had enough resources to get out of the under facilitated  Indian sports system, we thought, perheps this is the way winners are created. But Sushil Kumar, a person whose father is a MTNL driver, managed to win a bronze in wrestling. True, shooting and wrestling cannot be compared, but I cant help thinking, is the system so bad that you need to be a multi millionaire to win a gold for country? If that was the case, then Sushil Kumar might never had a chance..

    A lesson is lurking in there for budding sportsmen out there

    1. If you are like Abhinav Bindra,a super rich having truck load of money, resources and passion to make it to the top, dont worry for a damm ‘system’ or anything related, just do what you feel will take you to the top.

    2. If you are like Sushil Kumar, or Vijender Kumar, maybe you have to rely on government provided facilities, even though one may say the govt lacks the latest technology and infrastructure, still, thats your best hope and best choice.  The government is too slow to do things, but once in a while, it does produce winners.

    3. Olympic events are great, but thats not the ultimate goal. take for example, a sport like Formula 1 acing is at par with any sports event, I think its the most expensive sport ever known to mankind, we should excel in that too..Dr Vijay Mallya, the head honcho of Formula Force India has got enough money to make a good car..leave that it wont beat Ferrari in near future, but still…their ad shows Shahrukh Khan saying – ‘I want to compete with the best’,  Good luck mate..  😉

    Yesterday, on 22 August, Vodafone and Airtel launched Apple iPhone ‘officially’ in India. Originally, the iPhone sported a tag of $499 and $799, many Indians thought they might lay their hands on the hyped beauty, however, things soon turned the other way, the iPhone is avaiilable @ a cool 31000/- and 36000/- which is approx $900 in terms of US dollors, isent it too high?? Add to it, 3G is not present in India, the TRAI, the DoT are still a distance from striking the deal with 3G providers, nothings finalized..then why do I need to buy a pretty expensive wifi device? I could go in for Netgear or cisco routers, they allow great wifi features..No doubt Apple iPhone got not so great response in the Indian market. Mr Steve Jobs, dont take Indians for granted, they will pay you more if you give them what they need, but no chance if you provide half baked products at an exotic price.

    The Apple iPhone has got several limitations.

    1. You cannot forward an sms.

    2. No bluetooth present. Apple tries to fill this gap, expecting that wifi will overtake bluetooth devices, but then they will have to wait for some time.

    3. A 2 MP camera, no flash, no video. No takers for this one.

    Now, about me..

    Well, me had pretty ordinary week, barring a few lectures by people, everything was the same as usual. Trying hard to overcome the rage, and I think I will be successful in doing it. 🙂

    आयुष्य समुद्रासारखय …असं अता प्रकर्षाने जाणवतय….
    काय करु गोष्टीच तशा घडत गेल्या…
    एकामागे एक…

    भरती-ओहोटी….नित्यनियमाच्या …येणारच त्या …थोड्याच चुकणारेत….??? तेही मान्य…

    पण ढवळून निघणं सगळ्यात वाईट …. सगळ्या आठवणी कश्या लाटांच्या तडाख्याप्रमाणे अंगावर आल्या… एकाकीच झेलाव्या लागल्या …. काही परतवून लावल्या…काहींनी नखशिखांत भिजवलं….
    पण ठरवलच होता मुळी … जहाजाप्रमाणे हेलकावे खायचे …पण परतायचा नाही… नाहीतर त्या पुनः पुनः येतात ….पाठलाग करत … हौसच भारी ना मला ….
    ….नशीब म्हणालं..भोग अता …. भोगलं निमुटपणे … असहाय्यपणे…

    माहितिये अजुन खूप बाकी आहे…पण तोपर्यंत मी स्वतःला घडवीन कणखर ….
    आश्च्रर्य याचं वाटतय …………….(काही गोष्टी गुपीत ठेवाव्याच लागतात…हे हल्लीच कळालय मला)……

    Enlightment,a new hope 

    मी आसाच आहे……
    धर्मासाठी झुंजावे…
    झुंजोनी अवाघ्यांसी मारावे…
    मारिता मारिता घ्यावे राज्य आपुले…
    देव मस्तकी धरावा,
    अवघा हल्लकल्लोळ करावा..

    Men are haunted by the Future. Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

    I call myself a Peaceful Warrior… because the battles I fight are on the inside..

    All Karmas proceed with the force to either remove pain or gain pleasure
    Experiencing pleasure and pain, we roam the streets of Samsara

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Not knowing light from darkness we roam the streets of misery
    In beauty there is ugliness
    In ugliness I see beauty too
    What a repulsive body that I have which oozes grime and filth
    These carnal desires do I find unfulfilling

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Sadashiva Samarambham Shankaracharya Madhyamam
    Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramparam

    सदाशिवा समारंभम् शंकराचार्य माध्यमं
    आसमादचर्यां पारयनतम् वन्दे गुरू परंपरामं

    Finally the Truth is seen
    Unknowable once to me but now known to me
    What an error it is to take myself to be what I am not

    No words can reveal me
    Yet words alone set me free
    The beatitude revealed through desciplic succession

    No delusion for me
    I am the ever free
    No illusion for me
    I am the ever free

    Finally, the desires are Ash, I smear those ashes on my forehead and I free myself. Bhasma on my body..Bhasma on my soul..I am liberated….the Pain turns to Love….a new hope..Maya reveals her true form…

    Maya is inevitable…

    I submit myself to Maya..

    Maya has set me free…

    The revelations are known…

    May there be peace..

      As one of the noble truths of buddha say,

      all human existence is painful, eliminate the pain by eliminating the cause.

      however, nothing is permanent.

      Buddha was suffering from acute depression…But do you know that Buddhas teachings did protect Indian sub continent from maniac Mongols till 1962 India China wars??

      The only way to prevent any sorts of conflicts is to accept the things as they come to you without asking for its purpose or to think about its consequences. The only truth is the Desires we have with us. Denying Desires for some imaginary reasons is root cause of sorrow, and its funny that in todays marketing age, people can cash on sorrow too..if you can cash it on, sorrow is fine, else submit yourself to Maya unconditionally, rest assured, everything works in your favour…

    तू आकाश दिलेस मला
    मनमुक्त उडण्यासाठी
    आणिक एक घर दिलेस
    थकून कुशीत शिरण्यासाठी

    आता थोडे थोडे सगळ्यांना
    आकाश वाटत फिरतोय
    ज्यांना घर नाही त्यांना
    घर देण्याचे स्वप्न बघतोय

    घरी वाट पाहतय कोणी
    तू असा दिला विश्वास
    मी फिरतोय खिन्न दिव्यात
    भरत अता ज्योतींचे श्वास

    You were the one I was dreaming all my life..You were my rain, you were the Sun, I needed both, because I needed you..Words are poor substitutes for feelings, specifically those feelings which are intense, at the same time too complex…But now what remains is the Ashes…The Ashes of Desires…The word cruel is too overused, how can people be so cruel? Why? What makes them behave so brutally? Am I always wrong in learning people? How can it be? She was so beautiful…I remember..it was cold November..leaves were falling..life was a dream…Today my dreams are lost, but I thank God for the little chance he gave me to have those wonderful experiences. Thank You God, I used to see you through her. Bless her.
