Night Lights in Mumbai – Story of Night

It was a feeling of conscious dying. Its all an illusion and a wonderful dream of life. It was around night 11PM and I was sitting on my rooftop looking at the stars.There were a lot of starts and I focused my vision on one of the stars. I starred at the stars as if nothing exists and as time flew by which was not in my awareness, I felt that I was filled with starness of that star.Tears rolled over my eyes out of bliss.

Separation was hard and the day was awesome with tears.I then moved out to my room and sat looking at the mirror on how I looked. I felt like I lived a poor life since I thought giving is richness.To Understand richness is like understanding there is nothing you have got to give. A feeling of utter emptiness and I smiled in the mirror to understand that the mirror is empty as well.In a Flash everything looked like a reflection of her. An Understanding that Life is full of moments and the emotions cannot be freezed. The Fan above my head was rotating at a speed such that I could not see the wings.It appeared as if the wings does not exists. I kept staring at the fan for seconds. I woke up from the chair and moved to my bed to close my eyes.

Night Lights in Mumbai (With Sounds of Traffic)

I happened to travel to Mumbai for no reason to attend a marriage of friend’s friend. My Friend compelled me to travel with him since he did not get any company. We were about to reach the marriage hall and it was around evening 5:30PM. I did not know anyone in Mumbai nor I knew Hindi to understand a conversation and I completely relied on my friend during the travel. We reached the marriage hall around 6:00PM and it looked like a palace filled with colors and lights. There was lot of traffic as well near the hall and I just crossed ahead of my friend to reach the hall inside.

I started my walk inside the reception. I had no thoughts running in my mind and I was completely blank. It was in this blankness I found her. She was standing near the reception in blue saree along with other girls. One thing was sure to me that this is not Love and the emotions were so electrifying. I walked slowly towards her with a raise in heart beat. I felt friendliness for the first time in my Life as I went near her. She had a rose in her hand and greeted me with a smile. I felt completely blank as she looked at my eyes.

The girls around her asked me something in Hindi and I stood starting at them and answered something strange in chaos and they all started laughing. She did not laugh and stood smiling at me and it was so awesome for me to find her looking at me without any prejudices.I jovially asked and waved my hand if she needs the gift which was brought for the brides. Her friend sitting next to her asked what you will buy for this sister. I said to her, “So Clever” and added You are my sister and She is not and I smiled at her.

I asked her name for which she replied and I was just standing in front of her looking at her. My friend came and asked me to move in. I replied to her that I will just come back. I went with my friend inside and handed over him with the gift box and I said to him that I will come in few minutes.I quickly went outside to check the girl whom I met. When I went there, She was not there and I asked her friend where she is. She said she has gone out to brides home which is few kilometers away to bring the Bridegroom dresses for tomorrow. I asked her the area name and started moving in search of her.

I was completed filled with her and I walked for around one hour to find her in the streets here and there asking in Broken Hindi and I had no idea about the place or streets but I had a small hope to find her somehow.My friend called me few times and I switched off my mobile out of distractions. I finally lost all hopes and I tried returning to the marriage hall. In the street next to the marriage hall, I saw her walking along with her friends. She has changed her dress from saree to pink chudidar in which she looked gorgeous.I just felt so happy in seeing her and rushed towards her to speak. I just went forward and crossed the road and appeared like I was walking in the opposite direction of her. When I reached her, I showed a surprise stating Hi. She stopped while the other girls moved away in a slanting manner. As they waited in the side, I waved them to leave and handled over the bags to them which had some marriage materials.

As we stood there standing each other, a guy selling balloon walked across and She was so girly asking hey we can buy a balloon. I had a few tears in my eyes to have used my ego to cross the road and to appear casual in front of her. With this thinking I just stood for few seconds and noted that the balloon guy had walked far and I ran to get a orange balloon to give it to her. We reached the marriage hall and she asked if we can have pani poori which was given in front of the hall outside. We sat near a big tree in front of the hall and looked at the Nights lights of Mumbai and the passing traffic. Whenever few girls crossed the tree, I was conscious enough to look only at her for which she kept smiling at me.

It would have been a hour we just sat not talking much and the intimacy was heart felt as if the moments were freezed for hours and then as we heard a sound, we felt like crying but we couldn’t and we looked at each other. The balloon which she was holding burst with a sound and there was silence everywhere, a feeling of no movement of traffic, people and both of us. She got a call from her friend and she looked at me and said, Chalo lets go inside and as she walked in with her friends and I just wanted to go behind her but I couldn’t and my friend asked me if we can start back to stay in a friends home at night and to leave tomorrow. Hearing it I was not able to take any action, I just wanted to see her once again and searched her to say good bye.The night was so cold and the moon was bright but I had only a feeling that “Night is all about a Hangover of Emotions and Dreams”.

Ancient Indian Science of Prana

What is Prana?

We have heard about Yoga and Pranayama. Prana is a Sanskrit word and the translation in English is still not apt or possible in a single word or a bunch of statements. Prana is mostly translated in English as ‘Life Force’ and many also refer Oxygen as Prana.

I am not a Sanskrit scholar to give translation. However, by reading different texts, I tried to grasp what the ancients mean by Prana. Prana means Energy and my Explanation for the same is as below:

Light is a source of Energy as we say. But Light contains Photon which are particle in nature. Science also says that Photon contains quantum of Energy. By this, Photon carries Energy is the understanding.

In a similar sense, Oxygen is a matter(gas) but it in-turn will carry Energy(assume). The Matter is of Four State as identified(solid,liquid,gas,plasma) and these are all the manifestations of Energy and in-turn will carry Energy as well. A Photon is a manifestation of Energy and it in turn will carry Energy.

We intake air,Water and Food. We also have Vision, Sound, Taste and Smell has Inputs. The Energy from Air, Water and Food will be referred to as Prana.  In other sense, If we breathe Pure air, we intake more Prana and if the air is impure and polluted, the prana will be less. Same with  contaminated and polluted water and food. In that sense, Vegetarian Food will have more Prana than non-vegetarian food.

Air(Oxygen),Water and Food are important for our survival. Lets see How it works,

We drink Water(Prana) and it forms the blood and We eat food(Prana) which gets mixed in the blood and We breathe Oxygen(Prana) which burns the Food and supplies Energy as well as revitalizes the Body. There is a Channel for the Prana Flow in the Body. These Channels are called as Nadis.

What are Nadis?
Nadis are the nostrils, esophagus and Blood vessels. These are the channels in which the prana(Energy) flows.
There are two nostrils called as Ida and Pingala and the connecting point of the two nadis is called sushumna. If there are any blocks in the nostrils, the flow of Energy may get hindered and hence techniques like Pranayamana are of help.
Just like sushumna is a connecting Point for two nostrils, there are in total 72,000 connecting points in the blood vessels as well which are called as Chakras.

What are Chakras?
Chakras are the junction points for the Energy flow. If we connect two pipes for the flow of water and in case there is a block or hold in the junction, the flow or speed of water might get reduced. In a similar way, if there is any blockage in the blood vessel connecting points, the flow of prana could get affected. Pranayamana technique will be effective in the nostril and esophagus and it cannot be as effective in the blood vessels. Precaution is needed to maintain the blood(which carries prana) and this can be done by taking hygienic food which doesn’t contain any cholesterol and other junk. A fresh green vegetable has more prana than the dead meat. A fruit has more prana than the cooked food. A Fruit Juice has more prana than tea or coffee.

Seven Chakras and its Significance:
Of the 72,000 connecting points in the nadis(blood vessels) the Seven are the main Chakras. This number as such 72,000 may be associated with the heart beat(72 times) and the pulse rate(about 72 times). These are the termed as Main chakras as they are in line with the nervous system of the spinal cord. Hence whatever you think(mind), you will likely to spend the energy on that thought. For example, if you think about eating ice cream, you will use your energy thinking about icecream and focus on them to start an action with or without conscious. You may satisfy the thought by buying an ice cream and even if you don’t buy it now, you would have this thought pending which can affect your other routine works and in spending enough energy on them or concentrating.

The Seven Chakras will correspond to the endocrine glands in the human body and if there is any thought in the mind, the brain will command the endocrine glands to produce hormones. If the Mind is in fear, the brain would command the adrenal glands to secrete androgen and you would likely to spend your energy on fear and survival. This is True because when there is someone coming to kill you with a knife and we are hiding under a bed, we feel a sudden rise in Energy level in the body and there will be heavy breathe to supply more prana for the exhausting energy.

My Crush with Insurance Agent : Story

The Moment we hear the sound, “Insurance Agent”, we may think about some creepy looking,half baked,middle aged guy mostly a relative or a neighbor with a fake smile in the face. We always try to hide ourselves from them not for one reason but for unexplainable reasons.

Even I was little hesitating when I heard my sister say, That some Insurance Agent wants to meet me.

Sister : Are you free this weekend?
Me : Yes, why?
Sister : A Insurance Agent asked me if your Brother would be free this weekend.
Me : Look, I am not interested in seeing any Agents now.
Sister : Okay Then, I will then inform my friend.
Me : What Friend?
Sister : My College Friend, Her sister is an Insurance Agent.
Me : Oh, Didn’t She find any other better Jobs?
Sister : No, I think She has joined First Year MBA in IIT, Chennai.

For Few Minutes, I could not talk anything. My Mind was in its own Thoughts, “What is she telling me?. I have never heard anything which sounded so strange.” After a deep breathe, I looked for my sister. She was as usual talking in Cell Phone to her friend I suppose, and as walked closer, she lowered her voice and looked at me.

Me : I think its fine to meet your Friend’s sister this weekend.
Sister : Okay Fine, I will inform her.

As I walked away from my sister, She continued talking in her Phone.
Then after few Hours, I walked back to my sister and asked her to give my number if needed.

As Days passed by, A got a call from an Unknown number after about say Two weeks. But, I was in midst of work, so I could not attend during that time. Hence, I called back after about say One Hour.

Me: Hello, I got a call from this number.
Other End : Silence
Me : May I know who is this.
Other End : Sorry, Is this Suresh?
Me : Yes
Other End : Hi Suresh, I am (Her Name) and I am your sister’s friend.
Me : Oh, Ya..I remember You.
Other End : Sorry, I could have called you before.
Me : Fine, No Problem
Other End : If you are free tomorrow, can we meet?
Me : Ya Sure. where?
Other End : Where ever you wish. Or I can come to your Home.
Me : Yes, Home would be better.
Other End : Will meet you tomorrow. Bye
Me : Ya, Bye

I was sitting in a chair and I got up. I walked towards mirror, saw myself and returned back to chair.
I felt that her voice is cute and matured. I wanted to meet her. I looked up the ceiling and took a breathe.
That night, I was not able to sleep properly as her voice was repeating in my mind and to somehow see her.
I kept the alarm at 9:00AM and I was too late to notice that it was already past 10:00. I got up to make sure I am ready and not to be sleepy in case if she arrives. I was hesitating to call and ask about her status and I waited. After my Lunch, I got angry and went back to sleep. My Mother informed that She is leaving out and asked me to check the gate at times. I almost nodded in sleep but I forgot. It was about 5:00PM and I heard the door bell.

Suddenly, I remembered if She had come and quickly got up from the bed. Hurried to the basin to wash my face and applied powder to unmask the sleepy tone. I opened the door after changing to a Pant and Shirt.

She : Hello Suresh. Sorry to disturb you. I hope you are not sleeping.
Me : (Long Pause) Oh, No, No Problem. I was just inside my room. So could not hear the bell.

I asked her to come in and sit in a chair in the Hall. I went inside the kitchen with a sign to bring some water.

Inside the Kitchen, I did not know what to do. I walked here and there. My Instinct bounced with random thoughts, “Suresh, She is looking too good and gorgeous…She is also modern and well dressed..Think she is slightly taller than you…Nah..No,She might be wearing high heals” The Water overflowed and I closed the tap.

Me: So, You are from which Insurance.
She : I am from (Mute) Insurance
Me (Mind Voice) : Surprised, Not the one which I regularly hear.
She : Thanks for the Water.
Me : Okay, How much should I pay and what will be the returns?
She (Smiled) : No, Its a Term Insurance.
Me : (Pause) okay, How much I need to invest.

She started to explain me slowly and I continued to listen. Within Ten minutes, with the level of knowledge she has and her entrepreneurship spirit, I fell in Love with her.

I called my Friend to test their Insurance Knowledge. When they talked like me, I laughed and explained them what she informed.

Me : Have you got any Insurance
Friend : Yes.
Me : How much is the Sum Assured
Friend : No, We have to pay around (some money) and in the end they will return (some money).
Me(Laughs) : What you are talking is not Sum Assured. You are insuring or Investing?
Friend: I cannot understand what you are talking.
Me : In Simple words,Term Insurance is the actual insurance. Others are just Investment Products in the name of insurance.
Friend : So what.
Me : What you have taken is not Insurance actually.

I once again thought about what she informed during the conversation.

Me : So, in Term Insurance, I wont get any returns?
She : Yes, Term Insurance is the actual Insurance. Its like a Vanilla Ice-Cream.
Me : Then, the money will come only in case of Claim and the beneficiary will get the amount.
She : That’s right. If I sign a Term Insurance and in case if I die, my nominee will get huge amount(Sum assured) based on the contract where the same would be a mere amount if I happened to get any other Insurance(Investment Insurance).
Me: So, Only Term Insurance meets the actual need of Insurance which is to protect the Family as if the insured person is alive.
She : Yes, That’s Correct.
Me : So, Why not other Agents sell Term Insurance.
She : Its because, the commissions are too low in Term Insurance.
Me : Fine. Why did you join as Insurance Agent.
She : I joined my MBA now and I wanted to be an Entrepreneur and I felt that I am weak in Sales. I also thought that being an Insurance Agent could help to overcome my shyness and to build my sales and social skills.

She did not ask or force me to buy a policy. She just explained and left. I was moved by her positive thinking and she motivated me. I wanted to meet her once again not to get an policy from her but to make her as my nominee.

“Insurance is a subject matter of solicitation”

Avatar for the Trees

Avatar for the Trees – A Talk by Trees in Tropical Forest

Disclaimer : This is an imaginary Post. If the world is Real; this post would also be Real.

Location : A Tropical Rain Forest

Papaya  : People fear me since the papaya fruit will likely cause abortion and the pregnant woman usually avoid eating the fruit and even the doctors don’t advice anyone to eat papaya even though I have lot of benefits.

Coconut  : My friends in city used to say that coconut is widely used by people and I am getting costly each day. People are spending Rs.30 to Rs.50 to drink a coconut water. Also, a lot of companies have come up with brands stating 100% Pure Unflavored drink.

Avocado  : Wow, I would say, “Coconut Tree, You are great! ” Many don’t know me and many would have not even heard my name. Even though my avocado fruit has properties to reduce cholesterol, I could see cholesterol is still a major problem with people as they have started eating all kind of junk foods.

Sugarcane : I have one objection with you, avocado. Are you sure that people are eating food(I mean Junk Food). I believe they are eating products which are packed, sealed. They just take out the product and eat. Sometimes, they may have to heat the product.

Date : Yes, its true. People are eating Products. I knew this because, I was once exchanged with old iron craps but now some companies have recognized my true worth and have created brands in me.

Papaya : Does it mean that People wont appreciate the true worth and they likely go behind products. Now, few companies have started to recognize the anti-aging properties papaya has and are creating fairness creams, soaps and the sales are also increasing day by day.

Sugarcane : Yes, its true that people wont appreciate the true worth until one day they lose it. People needs everything today including entertainment and instant gratification and they don’t care about the future.

Coconut : what do you mean by they don’t care about future? Are they not developing day by day in Science, Technology and Everything?  A lot of deadly disease has been cured and they are sending spaceships to mars to identify if water is present there. To say in short, they have even invented robots to climb and pluck coconuts.

Touch Me Not Plant : Can, I join you guys if you don’t mind. People are developing day by day but they are cutting down the trees. Don’t you know that? We are the ones who provide them oxygen to breathe and they are destroying us to build houses and companies to live. what they fail to understand is that they need oxygen to live.

Avocado: I believe this is not an issue with people. Its an issue with media. They need to recognize and appreciate the wonders. I am not saying that I need recognition as I am less recognized. Almost the world have watched a film called Avatar, why its because of media.

Sugarcane : People watch Avatar and no one really cared to take some action even though the movie was about trees. How many planted a tree after watching the movie? I don’t think media can help in shaping the future of the world.

Date : Yes, its true. Media cares only about sensation and people care only if something is interesting or entertaining. People think they have lot of worries and they don’t bother about anything. Even they watch only Entertainment movies.

Papaya : Lets come to the point. So, what steps we can take in order to protect ourselves. Can we start a union just like people do to safeguard their rights? We have to teach a lesson to them so that they can understand what will happen if we stop breathing.

Touch Me Not Plant : The best idea to teach a lesson to them is by creating a avatar.

Coconut : Wait.. Wait.. what are to trying to say.

Touch Me Not Plant : Wait. Let me explain. We need to create an Avatar who seem like a human and we have to enter the city and create chaos. Slowly, we will penetrate the city.

Coconut : If they don’t understand, we shall wipe them out just like what the villains did in Avatar? Am I right? So, who is the Avatar.

All : Its the Money Plant!

How to escape Sorrow

If you are born in this world, you need to cry!!

I developed a statement or I wrote a dialogue,
“I need to cry, I need to shed tears and I want to fail in Life”

The above statement may seem to be mad, but the truth is it can turn out to be the best statement for the person who follows it.

For Instance, If you are in tough times in your life, you would see it as an experience and try to move on with your life instead of asking the really mad Questions such as, ” Why is that it all happens to me?”.

Another Instance, If we laugh one day with full of happiness, people would say, “Don’t laugh too much you would cry then”.

The Clarity is Happiness and Sadness are cycles of Life and it’s not true that if we laugh we may have to cry!!

The sorrow for anyone would be a loss of a loved one or a broke up.

This can be imagined even as ” A Child crying when her teady bear is lost”

Our Crying is almost similar to that of the Child whether we believe it or not, its the truth!!

Some of the statements to cry include, “My Life has no meaning without my love” or “My Life is incomplete without my Love”

Consider the scenario:

When a camera which was bought with severe desire is lost, we cry
But, When we our-self can give the camera to a friend who wants it, it takes a great heart to do that and we would feel a satisfaction even though we are losing it!!

Crying for oneself means Selfish!! You may need the camera since you extracted happiness out of it.

Crying for someone means spreading misery. If we know that we cannot do anything to the person who has a sorrow. We may just need to pray and move on. If we cry and turn our-self by being sad all the time, we are spreading misery.

A person in sorrow may need to find a way to recover themselves, worrying for that person is of no use and its like stopping them to do their actions with our consolations!

I am deeply in sorrow and How to escape sorrow?

The Simple way to forget sorrow is to keep oneself busy!! But in reality, we tend to do the opposite by simply sitting and thinking the same event which had happened.

For Instance, When a person has lost love, they slowly becomes separated from their friends and the rest of the world.

Instead, it would be happy if they can spread happiness in the world by talking with other people and by keeping themselves busy by doing things which they like the most!!
