Long time

Long time since I blogged. It was an eventful year. So there was no time to blog :-) 

This year summer vacation lachu is going for summer vacation camp . Every year she used to go home town. But this time in bengaluru.

Comes to mind  last April 6th where we had a very bad accident when our cab was hit by lorry while going to airport. Things can change quickly... Need to appreciate more the present moments..

God and Heaven

Lachu was put forwarding her heaven theory while I was seeing "wonders of the universe" DVD , I asked her whether Hindus and Christians have different heaven. She was sure they have and I will be going to the Hindu heaven. I was confused and asked her then who created this world. She was confident that Hindu Gods created the place where Hindus live and Christian Gods created where Christians live. Then who created the place where brigade metropolis exists ? Its very clear to her, since this place is owned by Hindus, Christians and Muslims this will be joint effort by all the Gods. Now I understand why Brigade metropolis costs 6500 Rs per sq. ft. It has got all the blessings.

Buddha can say

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment"

But its very difficult. It is tough to keep the mind unoccupied. Its like a chain reaction. One negative thought bombards a chain reaction and then the negativity increases. Decisions in life changes directions and changes life forever. Decisions affect not only yourself, your family and others around also. Fear steps in and then you are doomed. Failures in the past further pull your confidence down.

Thank you!

Most of the relationships I screw up and then I take a pause.And then have a reason to feel guilty about that. I hope I could take a pause when everything is in a good shape...

Now I am doing the corrective measures, and once I get a "Thank you!" pause the relationship.

Grow up or die- Bill Maher

Bill Maher could have not said it better:
“No, it is not a surprise that a person would want to be a prophet. What’s ridiculous is that other people let him. It’s just too easy to start a religion. All you have to do is: A.) think up some really powerful stupid shit. Some stuff that is so idiotic and weird that a person who believes it will be proving that ultimate virtue of faith; B.) throw in some entitlements like life after death, washing away sins and free dental or whatever; and, C.) wait. Just wait. Just say your bullshit and stick to it. Believe me, if you do that, if you just say it, they will come.
(…) Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It’s nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith, and enable and elevate it are intellectual slaveholders, keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don’t have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it’s wonderful when someone says, “I’m willing, Lord! I’ll do whatever you want me to do!” Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas. And anyone who tells you they know, they just know what happens when you die, I promise you, you don’t. How can I be so sure? Because I don’t know, and you do not possess mental powers that I do not. The only appropriate attitude for man to have about the big questions is not the arrogant certitude that is the hallmark of religion, but doubt. Doubt is humble, and that’s what man needs to be, considering that human history is just a litany of getting shit dead wrong. This is why rational people, anti-religionists, must end their timidity and come out of the closet and assert themselves. And those who consider themselves only moderately religious really need to look in the mirror and realize that the solace and comfort that religion brings you actually comes at a terrible price. (…) That’s it. Grow up or die.”

End of world thoughts...

Lachu was anxious after too much discussions on Dec 21st and end of world Mayan predictions.. She was asking what is going to happen.. I said everything is going to end and asked her what she wants to do in the remaining 2-3 hours...

She said she will pray to God not to end this world. But that was not possible I argued. The decision was taken long back by omiscient God and although he is omnipotent to change things usually he does not do that  ( even for worst kind of rapes and child abuses God does not avoid those as Eve ate that apple and since then evil is also part and parcel of our equations..).

I pushed her to know her wishes again.. Again she wanted to pray to God not to end this world and said she will cry and pray and that may have an effect on God.

I agreed, but asked her to imagine that the world will come to an end and say something more funny and interesting rather than prayers. This time she said - she will see DIL TO PAGAL HAI again and started seeing. She is seeing it for the 50th time and another shah rukh khan has emerged in my house.
