What lies within :)

There is a lot which lies with in!

“I know him very well; he would not go to a doctor.”
“I know her in and out. After all she is my daughter.”
“Oh! It’s not him. It’s his mom’s influence that has made him do it.” .......................

Aren’t these some very common statements that we get to listen to, where people claim to have known the other person very well. There is no complete truth to it. It’s just one aspect of what they think they know of the other person.

We can live with a person the entire life yet we may not know everything about them. And that’s the truth even if we are talking about the closest person to us.

Revealing the complete self to another is impossible because there is multiple dimension to our personality and also multiple dimension to the reality. Added to that there is multiple dimension to the angle in which it is viewed by others. For example, consider Hitler. He was hated by the world, but then he was also a personality that attracted an ordinary young woman, Eva Braun. Back then people thought how could a woman have a relationship with a man who was in many ways considered the embodiment of evils? That’s life. Very complicated! One man’s food can be other man’s poison.

We may be child-like, we might be wild-like; We might be honest, we might be dishonest; We might be calm, we might be chaotic; We might be energetic, we might be lazy; We might be generous, we might be narrow minded; We might be gentle, we might be harsh; We might be positive, we might be negative. It all depends on the time of the day and the person we are with. What others define of us is just one part of what they have encountered and pictured out of their encounter, but we in reality is the amalgamation of all that we are.

It’s the beauty of God’s creation that the world sees what we choose to reveal. If our mind were to be open book, which let everyone to see what our emotions are, what our ideas are, what we think about deep within, it would be a night mare. What lies within is a very secret and sacred space for every individual. I don’t believe in forcing that space into open from others. Call it innocence, call it not being open or what ever you wish to. For me, it’s not about the physical space, it’s that sacred space. Giving that space for every individual to be within and lie there, is part of growing. And as far as I am concerned, as long as I know the intentions in my sacred space is good, I am going on right track.

What do you think about the sacred space within? Do you even believe in it? Do let me know about it. I would love to know your thoughts.

The kitchen I fell in love with!

It was a cloudy morning, as I watched the sky through the balcony window after getting up. I hoped Mr. Sun to be a little kind to spread his shine that day and rushed to finish my morning miscellaneous work. By 6:15 am, I checked my mobile to find a missed call. I did not bother to call back since I was already on my way to the lady’s house who had called up. I reached her house by 6:30. am. She was busy finishing up her morning stuffs and took another 5 mins and then got into the passenger seat of my car.  “I called you up, and then I called your land line. Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

Bengaluru Calling! the pull factors of migration.

(Migration to Bengaluru - how the problem of population due to migration be solved was a topic of assignment for our creative writing class. Bangalore being home for me this is how I look at it.) It’s not every place on earth where bright sunlight lashes on the face and the cold breeze chills the body at the same time. Not every place can exercise diversity. From early morning variety dosa to late night smoke breaks; From temple walks to bike rides; From pool side beer to traffic in the burning sun; From non-stop chats to serious weekend talks; From street beggars to IT jobbers; From theatres to multiplex cinemas one can see extremes in any aspect chosen. Such a free city is ‘Namma Bengaluru’, and that is why a lot of people hope to come here. So, evidently there are many economic, social, and physical pull factors why people migrate to Bengaluru.  The first thing is a ‘brain-drain’ of IT hub. However, Bengaluru is not only IT capital but also capital of aeronautics, automot
