A Solace from Skunky Politics

A Solace from Skunky Politics

It had been a while I came from Chennai to Irving on a business assignment. The period spanning from April to July had been witnessing for me to witness a few low-profile people spearheading with dirty politics of this sort. Perhaps, I have also explained it over here. The environment at Irving, Texas has been supporting me from more than one way in this:

Keep myself away from hoodlums who constantly try to pull others down.Ensure that the mindset is pristine clear and crystal pure so that it is focussed only on productive tasks towards the welfare of the world.
I would be having a return to India sometime the first week of November and I am sure that the political gamut would have expanded to greet me in a more hostile cold war atmosphere. At the same time, my current atmosphere has geared me with an immunity gear to ignore all sorts of those unwarranted unruly brickbats which are of no use to any one. The other day, I was watching the film (Sri Raghavendra…

"Once I decide, I would never back up"

"Once I decide, I would never back up"Sometime back, I wrote a review on film Pokkiri over here. This weekend, being free, I was just trying to watch this film that some one had uploaded in Google YouTube. The interesting quote that Vijay keeps telling frequently is "Once I decide, I would never back up from the decision" In little. In a little colloqial Tamil slang, his quote would be: (ஒரு தடவை முடிவு பண்ணிட்டென்னா, என் பேச்ச நானே கேக்க மாட்டேன்) I would say, on a positive sense, this has very good meaning. It means avoiding wavering mind and focusing on the goal with greater attention.The other interesting quote I liked was when he would meet the don from Dubai. When the don offers him liquors, he would politely excuse himself on the first offer. But when the don tells him not to be scared and pressurizes him for the drinks, he gives back a scar to the don by replying "I don't take up (drink in this case) on any one's compulsion. If I feel like, I i…

'Ten Commandments' from Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

'Ten Commandments' from Dr. A.P.J. Abdul KalamWhilst casually browsing the online archive of Tamil Murasu October 1 edition, I came across a narration of a school function in Avadi, Chennai where our former President Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam had participated in the 50th Annual Day function of Ambattur Sir Ramasamy Mudaliar Higher Secondary School. After distributing the prizes for winners of various contests in the school, in his speech, the president seems to have given ten commandments to be followed by students and youngers.I have endeavored to translate the ten commandments to English here for the benefit of everyone and as a humble service to all.We should all have a noble and high-vision goal in our life and ensure that we march towards it steadfast and focused.We should study attentively and work hard towards the high vision goal of our life.We should endeavor to spend our holiday by educating at least five illiterate people.We should try growing plants in our home/work…

A Quick Recall of My School Prayer

A Quick Recall of My School PrayerFor some reason, today my mind was encircling around to about fifteen years back to my school days. Perhaps, typically after I posted this 'Gandhi Jayanthi Celebrations' post. And just whilst casually browsing the Internet, I came across a 'Sahanavavathu Prayer' audio uploaded by N.V. Raghuram of Yoga Institute, Bangalore. This used to be our morning prayer in the school. The lyrics of the prayer goes like this:Ohm! Sahana Vavathu. Sahana Bhunakthu
Saha Veeryam Karawavahai
Maa Vidvishavahai

Ohm! Shanthi! Shanthi!! Shanthi:
The meaning of this prayer would be:

Together may we be protected
Together may we be nourished
Together may we work with great energy
May our journey together be brilliant and effective
May there be no bad feelings between us
Peace, peace, peaceI think this comes in close association with our 'Gandhi Jayanthi Celebrations' post as a typical companio…

Celebrating Gandhi Jayanthi Today ...

Celebrating Gandhi Jayanthi Today ...The world (not just India) celebrates the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi today. Mahatma Gandhi is a great soul who blessed almost all countries in the world with his greatest weapon (Ahimsa -- Non-Violence) and Truth for a most peaceful life for every living being on this earth.At this juncture, let us observe a minute of silence towards remembering and praying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi. Let us observe this period of silence from wherever we are in the world. As we observe this prayer, we would have Gandhi's favorite song 'Raghupathi Raghava Raja Ram' play in the background.
