Monstrously Sensational.

3 Feb

the 1st time i saw this video, i was madly gripped by the creative display of information of how we are directly raping the environment on a daily basis. i was quite ashamed of myself in particular and the society at large. if mother earth had limbs, she would have wacked us black and blue, without doubt.
This is definitely a MUST WATCH video with a MUST ACT message. Brace urself to be blown away.

I am safely assuming u invested 21.16min of ur very precious time to watch- the story of stuff. and i am nearly sure it stirred u up. i hope ur nodding ur head right now else i will weep!

so now, step 2; MUST ACT, remember? A brilliant way to begin wud be to apply for a YES!+ course. (YOUTH EMPOWERMENT AND SKILLS WORKSHOP). Here’s why:

When there is talk about doing something to bring a smile on mother earth, a common excuse is; “i hv enuf issues of my own to deal with, lemme sort that out 1st b4 i begin to change the planet”! Whether it is to sort ur personal life out (after which u hv promised to heal the world) or if u simply want a wonderful platform to act & impact on present day social circumstances, YES!+ is exactly wat u were looking for~

Requesting the pleasure of ur company,
Yours lovingly.

ONE PARAGRAPH THAT EXPLAINS LIFE

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: “Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease”?
Ashe replied ” The world over — 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD ‘Why me?’.

And today in pain I should not be asking GOD ‘Why me?’


Divine Love

19 Feb

This one is among my favourite stories of all time..

The Radha-Krishna amour is a love legend of all times. When Lord Krishna left to fight His uncle Kamsa, Radha wept. Krishna told her that her tears were a hindrance for Him to leave on His mission and told her to stop crying. Radha didn’t shed a tear after that day. She longed for her beloved for years and years. The divine love she shared with Krishna was unparalleled.

Lord Krishna overthrew and killed Kamsa and went on to Dwarka where He married Rukmini. Krishna is said to have had 16,108 wives. Rukmini continuously kept complaining about him giving special attention to Radha. She said, “What is the big deal about her. What can she do for you that I can’t?” Rukmini was hopelessly jealous. She complained further that Krishna loved Radha the most though she lived far away in Vrindavan.

One day, Krishna had a terrible head ache. Rukmini and the other queens rushed about with all kinds of remedies but to no avail. They consulted a vaidhya and he asked the Lord Himself to tell him which drug would cure Krishna. Krishna told that his head ache would stop when the feet of a true bhakta is kept on his forehead! Listening to this, Rukmini and all other queens were aghast! They refused to keep their feet on Krishna’s forehead as it was a great sin! They said, “You are god’s manifestation on Earth and our dearest beloved. How can we dare step on your head? We would do anything for you but that!” Thus, no one volunteered and Lord Krishna continued to be in great pain.

The news reached Radha in Vrindavan and she immediately left everything to rush to her beloved. She immediately kept her feet on Krishna’s forehead to rid her Lord of His head ache. Seeing this, the people exclaimed that she would go straight to hell for such a grave sin. Radha smilingly said, “What does it matter if I have to go to hell as long as my Lord is relieved of His pain. I would readily go to hell a hundred lifetimes also!”

This act of Radha made all the other queens realize the divine love she had for Lord Krishna. It was so strong that she put her beloved before everything else, even enlightenment. Thus, Radha’s name is uttered even today whenever Krishna is referred to although she wasn’t married to Him.

Really insightful, isn’t it?

SUCCESS

30 Jul

“To laugh often & much;
to win the respect of intelligent people & the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of critics & endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty,to find the best in others;
to see what is small as it sees itself,
and accept what is weak for the strength it has,
and use what is dim for the light it gives;
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier beacuse you have lived..
This is to have SUCCEEDED…”


Ahh!the longest definition for a word we all live and die for.no?
God knows who came up with this..but seems like he/she spent his/her entire life defining the word for the rest of us rather than actually succeeding.!!.atleast now our work is half done..specially the “healthy child” part made me feel all khush n achievable..hehe
on a serious note..this blog has been full of “oh gosh! this gurl is suicidal” posts/poems/lifted quotes so far..but i promise it wil get funny in a bit..or in the least..leave u thinking..unless it hasnt already??

JUST ABOUT DEAD

26 Jun

“When I leave from hence let this be my parting word that what I have seen is unsurpassable.I have tasted of the hidden honey of this lotus yonder that expands on the ocean of light and thus am I blessed,let this be my parting word.In this playhouse of infinite forms I have had my play and here have I caught sight of him that eludes all forms.All my living body and limbs have thrilled with his touch who is beyond touch-and if the end comes here let it come-let this be my parting word.”

When the streams of ideals that flow from the east & from the west mingle their murmur in some profound harmony of meaning,it delights my soul -the religion of man.

-Rabindranath Tagore
