Responding to the Attitude Hostility to Commitment

Responding to the Attitude Hostility to Commitment

Commitment to the duty that we have in hand is by far the most significant part of the cake that is involved in completing a given task to its perfection. This applies to any profession or task that we have in hand. This thought of mind was nurturing in my mind for sometime and while travelling today from Tambaram to Guindy and a song that was playing in the bus took my mind to some remote journeys for various phases of introspection and eventually to share the same over here.

Particularly when I encounter persons that severely lack committment to the work on hand, I strongly prefer to keep them off the bay. I am particularly intimidated when someone at the close proximity displays such attitude. While I was in my previous organization, my the then CEO (Srinivas Thirunagari) used to guide me regarding this many times. Perhaps for the interested reader, I would like to share my earlier post enumerating the same. With those guidances in place, now I am able to comfortably and safely ignore such clowns and jerks rather than chiding them thus hurting thier ego and making the place dirty. And as I have discussed in yet another post ("Fate of Freshers"), I still get very much intimidated when it comes thieving of credits. I am actually strongly against this and I really can give a long long list of enemies that I have earned who I have openly brought to limelight time and again.

Well! Now comes the interesting discussion on why this came as a point of debate instead of a good topic lying around in my mind. The credit of the same goes to bus number 79 (Kanchipuram - Chennai) whose DVD stereo which was playing the famous song from Shimla Special which has the lyrics like Nee Sollu Nandalala. It is a very famous song of Kamalhasan and I think the playback singer is SP Balasubramanian ('Padum Nila'). Since Kamal used to very much get intimidated by false friends and pretenders, he used to address the Lord and ask him whether what he does his correct or wrong? ("Naan enna kalla paala. Nee sollu Nanda Lala?")

[Nee Sollu Nanda Lala from Simla Special]

I also truly feel that people who lack commitment alone involves in credit thefts in that they attempt to take credit of the work done by others. They just simply lack the skill in thier workmanship. Again this makes us get intimidated. As in Sindhu Bhairavi, JKB (Sivakumar) used to tell to Sindhu (Suhasini) while discussing about people who have zero knowledge in music "I am getting so intimidated when I am forced to talk to people who have absolutely no knowledge and/or love for music."

Readers --> What do you feel about lack of commitment syndromes that you encounter in your work and about credit thefts? Share your views.

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
