where are we heading?

for some days now serious thoughts are passing through my head.where are we heading? we are so blind to see the happenings around us.either we close our eyes voluntarily or we are not in a position to see the things .progress of a country is understood by the quality of people, citizen who live here , the direction is decided by the collective intelligence of the citizens .according to me, a country is heading in a downhill direction if its citizens are able to transgress the social laws and regulations of the state with ease and without any feeling of guilt or fear of the state.

this is what is happening right now in india, the country where values and virtues were given importance over the rest of the may ask "common yaar..why so serious has happend in the past " ,ya certainly i dont deny that it has happened in the past .there was always a sect in our society which has multiple faces ,who transgressed the laws then.but never they were in the mainstream of the society.

there are politicians ,officers ,industrial bigwigs, eminent public faces involved and caught in various scams,corruptions etc during all the times.but the common man always feared law, social status and looked at these things with speculation only.this is not the case tamilnadu nearly 30 students have been caught by the university for allegedly forging the marksheet and correcting the scores.these people are not any political bigwigs,industrialists,officers but common people like us. the selfishness and self centerdness is alarming.the people are not worried about others, nor they do have the guilt that they are crossing the limit and grabbing an opportunity which should go rightfully to is natural for the parents to wish that there kids get to have good careers, but not at the cost of others.who gave this kind of guts to them? the feeling that they can get along. a sense of carelessness, who is responsible?
so the people have come to this attitude , we can do anything for the sake of our life,we can do nothing but to pray to god to give us strength,courage and conviction in our minds to lead a peaceful life in this world

My experiences with truth-1

I am trying to scrutinize retrospectively from here , it might be a little biographical , this is a journey within myself and trying to explore my understanding of life.a kind of deconstruction of what i am today.hope someday it might be useful for someone or even myself.the events will not be chronological (and not even logical sometimes!!).

there are a lot of thoughts, incidents which are popping in my mind right now.the reason could be i met the person yesterday who forgave me for my first blemish for the first time , shanthi miss .again the incident may be a silly ' growing up' from the reader's perspective ,but it is indeed one great event that has kept me in when i think retrospectively if i could have got a corporal punishment at that stage for my act , may be i would have not been what i am today(what is that act? well will tell eventually:)).this is one of my school day childhood memories i always recall.
i was going to school, a school which carries a great tradition in our area, a school with high reputation of bringing out so many doctors and engineers every year, muthiah alagappa matriculation higher secondary school, in a small village -kotaiyur which has huge houses in the heartland of chettinad .this is the school were i studied or literally spent my hours,living there with the desks,the bell, the ground,the bus for the 14 years ,right from my kg till i completed my higher secondary education.

unlike many kids who cry and moan on the first day of schooling ,i was told from my mom that i was different .it was my mom who cried on sending me to school on the first day and i consoled her :) our house was in an area called subramaniapuram, a neat locale with wide roads . opposite to our house there was a school bus stop, known as correspondent stop (named so because our school corespondent's house was near by).i was told from my mom that as a kid ,everyday i would come out of my home and wait for the school bus and bade farewll to all the uniformed noble souls who carry more burden than the jesus christ himself and then only go back inside weekends alas it will be hard to convince me as i would be crying continuously to see the blue bus of my school.naturally i loved going to school, i thought that they all are going to school and having fun there.

then came the first day of schooling...

random thoughts.....26/8/10

a compilation of my facebook status..

1.being religious and being spiritual are two different things , being religious doesnt mean being spiritual and being spiritual has nothing to do with being religious.

2.hatred and anger are more contagious than joy and happiness.

3. the heart has reasons that reason mind does not know.-Pascal

4.if you think you get confused, in confusion you cant think!!better dont think anything !

5.if you want to be faithful to someone, start by being faithful to yourself- paulo coelho

6.Try to be "good", you'll be judged.Try to be yourself, you'll be criticized. Better to choose the second option and move ahead; God will never let you down-paulo coelho

7.intellectuals need a hero who can touch the masses to propagate the message. intelligence and heroism must coexist in a healthy society

8.we tend to overlook some day to day joys, say a conversation with a friend, but now when we look back we miss those small things..

9.What makes people weak? Their need forvalidation and recognition, their need to feel important. Don't get caught in this trap.-paulo coelho

10.criticizing the acts is different from criticizing the individuals. the former is constructive one and there will be always a love at the heart. while the latter is manifestation of pure hatred.

11.any amount of justification for any ideology that warrants killing of any life should be shunned in the root.

12.practical pessimism is better than hyper and impractical optimism.

13.there is always a big gap between what i am and what i want to be..i am always trying to close the difference..

14. independence is a myth!in this world no one can ever be completely independent, interdependence is the beauty of life!!

15.judgeMENTALITY is a disease of mind , we always try do judge people and fail to trust!!and make a fool of ourselves! that makes us prejudicial!!

16.the problem with the intellectuals is that they feel they are intellectual and others are dumb.they have this saviour attitude , they wont respect the individual preferences.

17.anger - is of two kinds, that one which arises when our ego is targeted , and the other one which arises when you see the wrongs in the society.the former one doesnt allow us to grow and hence it is bad. the latter is the anger which we must show then and now.unfortunately , we get angry for petty reasons due to blown up ego and keep ourself mum and detached when there is a social crisis!what kind of creature are we?

18.You have 2 choices in life: a] to find a way b] to make one -paulo

19.wonder !how much of hate around us in our daily life! wonder how comfortable people are with hating! when there is always a choice of love and trust

20. Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without, but whatever you do, you'll regret it later:).

21.even if we become a pauper , we still have one thing to give to this world, unconditional LOVE

22.feeling proud-pride of any form, of the nation ,place,religion,race,caste,language- i feel it is a fanaticism.these are the names, which the clever people have used to manipulate the people and make them emotionally together and intellectually dumb.and sow the seeds of hatred.

23.A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses. An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture-paulo coelho

24.darkness is an inherent part of light, they mutually coexist, without the existence of darkness light has no meaning.

25.there is no Saviour for us, in this world we are on our own, the good and the bad that happens to us, the responsibility is ours

26.the best thing we can show to any being in this world is the respect they deserve

27.those little things, which we do out of love, without expecting money or anything,only those things will help us to walk with our heads held high.

28.there are 2 kinds of men and 2 kinds of women,masculine men,and feminine men,masculine women, and feminine women.masculine men and feminine women is what you call a perfect match.feminine men and masculine men is what you call as understanding couple.feminine men and feminine women is what you call the voice of silence.but if masculine men and masculine women, its time to get ready with your divorce papers

29.the solution to every problem in this world lies in a simple four letter word, which we all know but hesitate to practice -LOVE

30.tolerance is what u show to strangers!!acceptance is what you give to loved ones!!endurance is what u show for ur enemies!!

31.the biggest illusion is that we will be secure some day, always working for that illusory sense of security!!insecurity is the core concept of life!!we can never be secure in this momentary life!!

32.the world is run by 1 million evil people, and 10 million stupids and 100 million cowards.. is so simple..we are working hard to make as complicated as possible..:)

34.things which we dont understand, we either worship them or deny there existence!!

35. life is a travel between purity by ignorance to purity by intelligence!!
