Life and the way we live

If you analyse life deeply you will come to know that there are many life's within your life . These are beyond your control since your own life is also not under your control :P 

Often, in sweep seconds many things happen in parallel . Someone somewhere gets a new life , someone moves out from this world to another , a child gets his first pocket money , a love blooms within two hearts and yes , somewhere in the sky the stars also move houses .

Yesterday , a friend of mine called and on the phone she started weeping . Early in the day right in front of her eyes a person riding a cycle got smashed out by a speeding SUV . Within a fraction of a second the person riding the cycle was in the air and his cycle was beyond any damage that could be repaired . The SUV guy fled from the seen leaving behind a person in blood and making him near to his death.

If you read the above there are number of things that may have happened. The person riding the cycle would be going to work on his usual time on the same road . The SUV guy would also be in a similar ecosystem .   My friend who usually wakes up late morning only that day woke up early for a jog . All seems normal . Yet ,  what happened changed the life's of all the three . 

This is what I always call as the 'hidden power'  which is always there watching all of us. It has the capacity to do the unimaginable , to give life to someone and yes , to take life away from someone. 





A friend of mine often tells me that everyday he takes a 2 minute break and thinks and says - 'Yes , I know one day this will be all gone . I will no longer be in this world with my near and dear ones  . That day I will come and meet you and I want you to say to me- 'Yes my son , you did a good job' ".

This brings him back to the ground to the reality to the very fact that one needs to do everyday nothing but 'good karmas' . Time is already counted and its has started the day you were born .  Try to touch as many  lives as you can and spread the goodness inside you with everyone in the outside world .  Remember , sufferings are not what we need to know how to deal with . Its the blessings that we need to count and the prayers we need to do for everyone around us that makes life worth living .

What happened to the cycle guy . Yes, he is recovering and hopefully will be fit and fine soon to cycle life's journey.

Today is Ahoi Ashtami .This vrat is observed 8 days before Diwali i.e. on Kartik Krishna Paksha Ashtami. This fast and its Puja are dedicated to Mata Ahoi or Goddess Ahoi (a form of Maa Parvati). She is worshipped by women for the well-being and long life of their children. This day is also known as Ahoi Aathe or karwathe.

Similar to karwa Chauth, Mothers observe fast from dawn to dusk. Fast is broken during twilight after sighting stars in the sky.
