Once upon a time, I decided to shoot how seriously people work in a company named Veda Informatics. We wanted to shoot people’s focus towards their work, how they met deadlines and how they adhered to the age old theorem which says Work is God. However, the video became a goof up as we could not find any serious stuff, however, wat we did find was one of the most important truth of professional life. We named this journey as In Search of Some Serious Stuff.

Ajj jitendra badminton khel ke aya, aur ake kaha “sabse pahale tumse milne aya hun “, Ab usane sahi kaha ya chhutha ye bat mayne nahi rakhati hai.

mahttva ki bat ye hai, ki o bahut khus tha ,jahir hai ki khus hi hoga kunki apne beech ka vaha pahala ladaka hai , jo national game me pahucha ,sath hi uski mehanat bhi safal hui.

usane muchhse kaha ki vaha jeet ke aya hai,main khush hua, kya muchhe vakai khus hona chahiye, nahi janata ,iske pahel ke uske sabhi uplabdhiyun se muchhe dukh hi hota tha,par aaj yesa nahi. lagata hai ki mane dost sabd ka kuchh arth samchh liy hai.par na jane man ka koi kona kaha raha tha ki muchhe khus nahi hona chahiye,are jeeta to o hai aab muchhe neecha dikhana parega ,uski vah vahi hogi aur main jahan ka tahan .

shyad ye vichar meri asfalata ashantosh ki bhavan ke karan hai.manushya kuchh bhi kar le ye dono usk peecha nahi chhodti.jabki manusya ki asfalata ka mul karan uska apne lkshya par dhyan na dena hai,

Aaj har koi karne se jyada pane ki hor me laga hai ,karya ke suruat se hi hone na hone ki ganit me ulajh jata hai,aur fir asfal hone par bhagya ka rona rota hai.

Jitendra yek sadharan parivar se tha .pita sales man ,mata house wife ,aur do badi bahne ,aur do bhai.ghar ki economical condition sahi nahi thi,kam karne vala ek aur khane vale panch.

“pata nahi mere desh ke log ham do hamare do ke bar me kab samcheege”..

Lekin jitendra ka rahan sahan sadharan nahi tha ,o hamesha hi yek astariya jivan bitata tha.muchhe lagta hai ki ye sab uske aas parosh me rahne vale uske dosto ke karan tha.

kisi ne theek hi kaha hai ” itra ke sath rahne se itra wale se bhi khusbhi ane hi lagti hai”

par yek bat thi jitendra jo bhi karata apne paise se, khud tution parata ,aur electranic ki jankari hone ki vajaha se usase bhi kucch kama leta ,aur apne shauk pure karta,sath hi thora bahut ghar ke kamo me bhi lagata.

Jitendra padne me hoshiyar tha ,par usme jo muchhe sabse jyada prabhavi laga uska milan shar hona. yek aisha vyktito ki use dekhate hi chehare par muskan daur jati.Neta ,Abhineta ki Nakl to aese karta mano usne sabko kala baji shikhai ho.

Jitendra jindgi ke har vidhha ko jine vala inshan tha,chahe o khel,parai ,shrarat kuchh bhi ho.

Mere Jitendra ki dosti ki shuruat hone ki bhi rochak gatana hai.Main apne kasbe se Intermediate karne ke bad rewa (MP ka yek Shahar) B.sc Karne aya tha.rewa ke achhe college me dakhila bhi ho gaya nature se jyada milnsar tha nahi ,satha hi dost shabd par visvas bhi na ke barabar tha ,hamesha hi akele chalne ki aadat thi so ,rewa pahuch ke bhi vahi hal raha.

Ek din saikal se college jate waqt mera accident ho gya galti meri thi ,dono hath chhodakar saikal chala raha tha ,ab din jaise taise beeta par sham hote hi halt bigar gai aur mere dahine hath me jor se dard hone laga .ab kisi se jan pahachan bani nahi ,bulata bhi to kisko ,paise bhi nahi abbto bas ishvar ka hi shara raha.

Jitendra ka ghar mere room ke pas hi tha ,kai bar vah muchhse gali me mila bhi tha,so ,us din ishvar ki kripa se sham ko mere kamre me aya,Bahar dastak hui ,man me shanka ,kaun ho shakta hai… ,darvaja khola to dekha jitendra ,Man me khusi hui par madat lena muche ata na tha.

“Jab admi mushibat me ya bure waqt me hota hai tabhi use apni khamiyun ka yehshas hota hai.”

Jitendra ne pucha kya hua pahle to maine chhipane ki kosis ki par meri ankho ne sab ugal diya,aur ankhon ki gangotri se ganga,yamuna ki dhar fut pari,jaban ne bhi sath diya aur puri ram kahani jitendra ke age rakh di.usne muchhe datate hue kaha -pahle kun nahi bulaya aur dactor ke pas chalne ko kaha maine paise na hone ki bat batai to fir dat mili.

Doctor ke pas jane par pata chala ki hath ki do haddiyun ne namak harami ki hai aur mahine bhar ke liye plaster chada gaya.

mere pas ab tak koi dost nahi tha ya ye kahe ki maine kabhi kisise dosti nahi ki thi vaise bate karane aur riste banane me man bhi bahut mahir tha par dosti karan bada muskil tha mere liye .

mere dosti ke mayne kafi kare the.Bina swarth koi muchhse milta na tha aur jahan swarth wahan dosti kaisi.

par is ghtana se muchhe vastvik taur par apne vicharo par vichar karne ki awasykta mahshus hui.ushase mane shikha ki kisi ko parkhane se pahle apne apko shabit karana parata ahi.

“Bina swarth ke aapke shukha dukha me satha dena vala hi apka sahi maine me dost hai”

“Ham log dosharo ke liye to sharte rakha dete hai par ham kya hai ye kabhi nahi sochate”

Inhi kara no se aaj tak meri kisi se dosti nahi hui ,par main aab apne ko badlana chahta tha aur isme sath diye JITENDRA ne .

Ab ham aur jitendra bahut achhe dost the ,jitendra muchhe apna sabse acha dost manata tha aur main use.Uski bhumika mere jivan me yek dost se jyada ye guru ki rahi ,usne muchhe sahi mayne me jina shikhaya.usase dost sbd ki ahmiyat ka pata chal ,aur usne muchhe apne se bahar nikal kr duniyya ko dekhana shikhaya.

“Yek accha dost hamesha darpan ki tarah hota hai ji apke guna ,dosh ka darshan karata hi.”

Ushise mucche pahli bar apne likhne (kavita) ki sakti ka pata chala,aur apni tarkik sakiti ka jan hua.

main jyada khel kud me ruchhi nahi rakhta tha usne muchhe badminton khelnae ke liye prerit kiya aur main sanbhag stariya kkelo tak pahucha bhi ,par pairo me arthritis hone ke vajah se age nahi khel paya.

“Yek acch dost yek shilpkar ki tarha hota hai hai ji pathar ko trash kar use acchi murti me tabdeel karne ki kosis karta hai.”

Jitendra badminton bahut accha khelta hai sayad hi koi uske jaisa pure state me khelta ho aur usne sabit bhi kiya.

vah is jeet ka adhikari hai ,usne iskeliye kafi mehnat bhi ki hai.aur uski jeet me mucche bhi apnee jeet mahshus honi chahiye ,yahi yek acche dost ki nishani hai

AKHIR JITENDRA MERA DOST HAI.

If you have never been unwell in the last 15 years this article might not be very useful for you. In case you find a little better state of health can help you live more of your life every day – try one or more of the options below:

Eat Less
We often eat much more than we need to. Someone recently told me that the physical size of our stomach is not much bigger than the space that we can create between our palms (when bloated in a Namaste shape). Eating a bigger volume than that is just overloading the system and giving it more stuff than it needs to live healthy. This brings in the overhead of processing a lot of food that the body does not need – wasted energy which could have been used in playing a game we love or putting in that additional hour into work that was needed to meet  that deadline! I suppose when one starts over eating the body thinks that you are headed into a famine and starts storing food. But when the food is stored for years and no famine happens then it begins to rot like wheat which has lived too long in storage without being used! The stored food starts floating around in the blood looking for a consumer and since there are no takers for it, starts choking from arteries to organs!
Ignore the gore above and take the crux of the message – eat as much as you will burn today!

Sleep Less
Popular myth says sleep eight hours for a healthy life. If you sleep for eight or more hours everyday – try this simple test. Observe how fresh you feel ten minutes after six hours of ‘good’ sleep and compare it to the moment ten minutes after the eight hour sleep. Most people have found that after the eight hour sleep the body actually needs to ‘recuperate’ from the sleeping – some parts of the body like neck and back feel a little stiffer after the marathon and a general feel of fatigue and laziness lingers for a while before you are ready for action again. In comparison the moment ten minutes after the six hour sleep is often ready for action already! The more important thing here is the quality of sleep. When you keep yourself ‘mildly’ under-slept on occasions (maybe once or twice a week) the quality of sleep that you get everyday keeps improving. Most of the very successful people were awake for eighteen to twenty hours a day and doing things that they really wanted to do (instead of sleeping in preparation for doing them the next day!)

Do More
Find all the things that you really want to do and do them a lot. After all good health’s only use is giving you the opportunity to do more of what you really want to do! One of the things that helps one do more is to not play the ‘OR’ game too early in the decision making cycle. Instead of saying that if I do this then I will be able to do lesser of that try to see if you can do lot of this ‘AND’ a lot of that. An example in this could be the Work/Play balance. Don’t get into OR too early there – work hard and party harder!

Smile More
Very essential daily activity that we keep forgetting to perform at the right frequency – Smiling. Look at the days when you really stretched yourself to meet a target and managed to smile through it – days like those were probably a greater joy than the best vacation (especially if you spent the vacation worrying about a problem that you were not even solving at that moment!) Here again one can achieve two levels – level one is where you are able to smile through the ups and downs of life – level two is when you can make the others smile!

Yes, hypocrisy is the matter to agitate but, the problem lies in ‘I’. This ‘I’ is obligatory the hub of your life, all your possessions revolves around ‘I’.

One corner of your white painted heart always keep on suggesting some amendments for the mistake you made in past, always prevent you to deprive others of their right but, men being self centered thinks let it be, nothing succeeds like success, and all your aesthetic values got overshadowed by your money makes  the mare go philosophy. One might not be thinking to delude someone but it happens as your black painted heart completely believes in ‘I’.

And as life will change its pose, you will be at the other end of prosperity and from top to bottom you will be surrounded by grievances.

The folk whom you tricked earlier will come and pay you a hearty felicitation for all your vengeance so, stop being Lucifer of your life and avoid sticky wickets. Don’t let your all hopes end in a smoke.

One who live for others need not to bother for themselves.

I was AMONG the FEW LUCKY people in this WORLD, who join an organization and the very next thing that they get to know is of a contest going on. I was very excited when I got to know of my luck and the fact that there is a blogging contest going on.

Don’t get me wrong here, it had nothing to do with my intentions of winning the contest. I was excited…looking forward to read what others would write, I thought of getting to know every one through their thoughts which they would pen down…oops type down.

But the sky came crashing on me, when THE BIG BOSS with THE BIG EYES, gave me the news that I did not have a choice and had to participating in the contest. (Why was he calling it blogging contest….then, why not blogging EXERCISE????) anyways, I love my job. So I didn’t MESS with THE BOSS and agreed to write.

I can’t even visualise my self writing in my dreams. All the writing stuff I can relate to is THE ESSAYS I WROTE on ‘MY BEST FRIEND’ and ‘THE COW’ while in school (yes, I did go to one).

Now, this was giving me NIGHTMARES, DAY MARES and all the OTHER MARES. I RACED MY BRAIN to figure out what to write. ( hey…I got a MRI scan of my head done recently and now I have a DOCUMENTED PROOF that I have something up there in my head and it is in working condition,.) So please…. no need for second thoughts here.

After exercising my brain a lot,( ALAS !….I did not even loose a pound after all this exercise :-(, I feel like suing the person who said exercise leads to weight loss.) Anyways, I had a more important task at hand than SUING THAT JERK. So I decided to write something about ME and LOVE. So that if at all; you cannot relate to one aspect of it. you all could relate to the other 😉

LOVE; the most difficult word to be explained, yet the most WONDERFUL thing on this earth. ALAS it can’t be expressed in WORDS (ESPECIALLY by a person like ME). To understand it you have to experience it.

By the time I could REALIZE all this, I was already in LOVE. I don’t know when i fell in LOVE, I don’t know when it STARTED or HOW it STARTED, by the time I REALIZED all this, I was HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE.

All I CAN THINK OF is HIM. I wake up THINKING ABOUT HIM and I go to sleep DREAMING ABOUT HIM. MY LIFE just REVOLVES AROUND HIM; I LOVE HIM SO MUCH …. …all I can say is…I LIVE FOR HIM AND HIS LOVE. LOVING HIM has given a MEANING to MY LIFE …..MY EXISTENCE.

I’m so MADLY in LOVE with him that I see HIM ALL AROUND (LOVE is INTOXICATING man…………..!) I see HIM EVERY WHERE and in EVERY ONE ……when I look at my neighbour, my colleague or anyone for this matter I see HIM SMILING THROUGH them. You must be thinking I’m MAD ! But that’s true my friend……… LOVE DOES DRIVE YOU CRAZY 🙂

Since I see HIM every where and in everyone; I keep SMILING at everyone. and I’m sure any one would look BETTER when they SMILE and I’m no different. I should thank HIM for making me look PRETTIER! ( I don’t know WHY I DON”T FEEL like being MODEST rite now???)

PEOPLE who HEAR this SAY that I’m CRAZY and I’m DRIVING THEN CRAZY TOO. They think I CANNOT LOVE HIM like this and if at ll I do, then I MUST BE REALLY REALLY CRAZY. ( I SHOULD still be THANKFUL to them for at least not getting me into an ASYLUM 🙂 )

But I REALLY DON’T CARE about what they FEEL as I KNOW I Love HIM and HE LOVES ME TOO, and that is ALL I CARE ABOUT.

NOW YOU would be WONDERING, HOW can I be so SURE that he LOVES ME too.

OK, LET ME tell you that also :-). He KEEPS ASSURING me that HE LOVES ME. HE TAKES CARE of ME and PAMPERS me. He GETS me EVERYTHING I need without me ASKING for it; EVEN ONCE.

HE MAKES all the EFFORTS to KEEP ME SMILING every time.(NOT LITERALLY every time OF COURSE). HE does make me CRY sometimes, probably because HE finds ME CUTE when I CRY, but HE MAKES IT UP for that quickly and GIVES ME a reason to SMILE soon. DON”T YOU feel all this is ENOUGH of an assurance for me? or for this matter ANYONE?

I HAVE ALL THESE REASONS to prove my love but THE WORLD always HAS ONE SINGLE LOGIC (or THE LACK OF IT, I must say) to prove me wrong. THEY SAY I CANNOT be in LOVE with HIM because he is GOD.

SO WHAT? who TOLD THEM GOD doesn’t want LOVE??? or GOD hates BEING LOVED?

For them HE is ONLY GOD, they SEE HIM only in MURALS and BOOKS. ….FOR ME, HE is my sweetheart; my everything.I DON’T SEE HIM in a particular FORM or PLACE. I SEE him, I FEEL him and I SENSE him every where. He is NOT just the GOD to ME …HE IS MY WORLD……….MY LOVE.

And THIS IS what I TELL HIM EVERY, TIME and HE SMILES SHYLY in RESPONSE:

LOVING YOU FILLS MY HEART WITH JOY; Love
MY LIFE WITH MEANING And,
MY WORLD WITH HAPPINESS.

Thanks SWEETHEART………..THANKS FOR LOVING ME And;
THANKS for LETTING ME LOVE YOU !

I LOVE YOU !

I read somewhere that “the year 2009 will be a golden year in Indian cinema”. I do not really disagree with his statement. This remark comes from one of the most proficient script writer turned film maker in today’s time.

At Dev D, Love, booze and court dance was subtlety replaced by Sex, drugs plus rock n roll. The plot of the film stood at Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s Devdas where a post colonial weak kneed, drunkard Zamindar spends the rest of his life in a menace. Unbelievable acting, by the lead protagonists and great music score by a rookie. This coke snorting, use for nothing fella, bundles out cash after cash. Visits Old Delhi’s underground garage and ultimately finds himself at peace with Vodka and Leni. I was fuming at the director that how he can make a film of this nature, the same time dumbfound to see actor Abhay’s performance, brain cracking. During the film and after the film (I was not able to watch the last 20 minutes, I left the hall) me within, was asking continuously, how can children or men for that matter be so restless, wayward, lifeless, careless and errant? I felt like straightening him up, with whatever means i can. I came to know that the other woman’s character (Leni) was borrowed from the infamous DPS mobile phone girl. However, nothing of similar nature happened after that, or maybe I don’t know. What is the point in making a full length feature film out of in hindi and dishing out for public consumption? People may disagree with my thoughts, don’t really care. Again, I should give credits to the director and the actor who permeated so well inside the skin of the character that he was able to emote, so well.

After what has happened at Mangalore early this month. I don’t mind watching Dev D with the factions of Sri Ram Sena. Rather I would love to hear what they say. Dev D should be a valentine treat for them.

In the end I would say, Dev D had everything but life.

Marriage… It doesn’t matter whether it is love or arranged, important is happy married life and it depends on personal understanding of couple, so we can’t say which is better or which is bad.

If I start comparing love and arranged marriages we will see that both has certain pros and cons. Most of the people have perception in their mind that arranged marriages are ideal marriages. But from my point of view it’s not true .there are certain things, which are found in love marriages and not in arranged. Like spending time together and getting to know each other. Because when you have decided to spend the life together it is important you know the person. There should be mental compatibility and understanding among both of you. And this happens when you spend time together. On this people may argue that even after knowing each other for so long then why people get divorced after marriage. It is because when two people are in love they are at their best to impress each other. They behave, they talk and they wear what the other person likes. But it is after marriage that you get to know the real person. There are couples who are still discovering each other even after twenty years of their marriage. This is the actual beauty of a relationship where everyday you discover a new thing about your partner.

In case of arranged marriages the relation starts when the girl and the boy get to know each other in a couple of meeting before the final commitment. Before deciding anything the parents check the family background and financial stability. Which is also very important. As most of the people have an idea that those who go for arranged marriages are not in an advantageous position but it’s not so you may get the right person for whom you have been waiting. Even in love marriages after many years of courtship people find their partner not suitable and they break up. So it is not about spending time together but successful marriage is all about understanding and respecting each other’s feelings, love and concern. It is argued that love marriages offer more independence and freedom as compared to arranged marriages since both of them knows each other so the social pressure and family pressure is less. If you know somebody before marriage it allows partners to have better respect and understanding for each other’s needs and desires. In love marriages expectations are more compared to arrange marriages, as they know each other and want their partner to act in the best possible manner. But sometimes these expectations become harmful.

Love or arranged both is based on empathy, responsibility, commitment, love and concern. So it’s not just about initial love and attraction it needs a lot of dedication and effort to sustain a marriage. So there is nothing like an ideal marriage it’s all about the way you perceive your marriage. After all you should be happy with your life partner irrespective of love or arranged marriage.

Personally speaking I would prefer an arranged marriage. Now the question why? In Arrange…whole family is involved. both one have a mind set to respect each other later on when understanding start growing between each other…then anything may come up if it’s in favor then good…if not in favor then family will be the most supportive at that time. But In love marriage…in difficult situation…all we have to manage our self… even families are helpless in few cases.

Some couple of days ago i was thinking about me that am i a Successful person & enjoying my life and so on ……? and also started to think about my friends, brother and my close relatives. after some time i found completely sink in sea of this type question. In finally I reached on a result . I shall disclose it later.

In this world every one has a target, try to get it, get success and then decide next target ,try to get it and get success and then next….Is this truth of the life ? Ask yourself. Most of us have their eye on their target mile stone but neglect the greenery in the way of life. This greenery is nothing every one is familiar with it. It is enjoyment. In the race of acquisitions, most of us have forgotten enjoying the life.

Question is simple. How much of acquisitions and achievements’ does a common man enjoy in his life?

Now next question is that what is enjoyment ? For example. One person A who is returning to home from his work place by his luxury van and other hand one person B who is in crowded bus. Who is most enjoying his life A or B ? In my opinions it goes to 50-50 . any one of A & B may be more happy. I think that Enjoyment is only state of mind or feeling such as contentment, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.

How to make a balanced life between our achievement and enjoyment? Work-Life Balance does not mean an equal balance. Trying to schedule an equal number of hours for each of your various work and personal activities is usually unrewarding and unrealistic. Life is and should be more fluid than that. However, at the core of an effective work-life balance definition are two key everyday concepts that are relevant to each of us. They are daily Achievement and Enjoyment, ideas almost deceptive in their simplicity.

keep smiling & be happy.
Smile
