The art of living!

(Trying to summarize what I learnt about the art of living. It did teach me to share; share the peace, share the harmony, share the fruit of virtue; apart from learning to develop equanimity towards our craving and aversions. Here it goes ..........)



"Sanjit, there you go."
"Kritajna, here you feel."
 ...........Oh! Isn't life full of,
People, Actions and Reactions?

Did you know?
Every single action,
Has a bio-chemical reaction?
Some lead to cravings,
While others create aversions.
It depends on the inputs,
And the self developed conceit.
That is why they say,
It is not the words,
But how you are made to feel,
That is remembered!

These cravings and aversions,
Are like lines fragile, erasable or deep.
Fragile, like the line on the water,
Erasable, like the line on the beach sand,
Deep, like the line on the rock.
Until you get rid of these lines,
They keep growing into mangled misery vines. 


Sheela - the morality,
Samaadhi - the awareness,
Panya - the wisdom,
Helps develop patience and equanimity.
Equanimity for the cravings and aversions,
Resulting in peace, harmony and good virtue.
Isn't happiness all that?
May we develop and share the same.

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
