Reason behind a Smile…..


In the morning, at office bus stop I see a number of people ready to face the day and make a new start with a lovely day and a lovely smile. I guess is it real or they just trying to hide certain errs behind that smile. School kids budge around me hanging around waiting for the bus to pick them up and take them to a place where they can play in playground or spend time studying with friends. The teenagers looking out for different buses which will take them to their college, a place where they can be themselves. Office guys talking about their targets and work to finish till EOD.

Then I see a smile of a girl with specs standing 2 girlfriends waiting for the office bus. Her smile seems so real in this fake world. I do not know the name though. The day passes at its normal pace. At workplace, I see a friend who laughs n giggles to every damn joke I make, but sometimes I can see the pain in her eyes. She is suffering from something, taking stress of family, work n friends. She is the most jovial person I have ever met in my life yet she shares the worries with me!

I wonder how she effectively hides all the sadness with a smile and nobody can see the reason behind it except me, I feel. The reason it to kick the sadness in the ass and smile through it like a sail finding its way through the wind in an ocean full of crap people. The smile on her face brings everyone from low level like a guard at the gate to the manager to life.

Everyone seems to smile. Really! It happens every time. She greets everyone passing by and everyone forgets the worries for a moments. I guess that a talent bigger than God. Hiding one’s sadness with a smile to make everyone smile to your tune.

Respect! Its a great thing to learn that how a smile can change one’s self concern from inside.

The reason behind the smile..

Yeah, you are sensitive Dumbass!!


Walking in the amazing breeze every morning, its the best memory that I have from age when I used to go out in morning for a walk with my grandfather. I made it a habit and never stopped walking. have you ever wondered, how we have changed, today when I go for a jog early morning, I find elderly and few young people running in the ground. The scene changes as I pass by a Gold Gym… Out of the large windows I see, young idiot guns jogging on treadmills in AC. I mean what the F***??!!! The dumbasses pay a freaking amount to just jog and exercise and they feel healthy by just watching the outside view?

I agree the pollution has increased these days and nothing is original. Earlier, butter, ghee and milk were served in every house in north India, people used to work hard and eat healthy.. Now, people have become so sensitive. Its not just girls as a common belief but guys too… They go to saloons to get manicure, pedicure or threading… I mean that’s how a women should look like.. Spending whole day in AC and calling the air outside tacky,??!! (Survival of the Fittest) :).

Coming to food, today one can find the now generation flocking to flashy restaurants and eating clean food. Pasta and cornflakes has taken place of Alloo Parantha with White Butter and Curd with Zeera.. 🙂 I know most of you have your mouths watering but accept it, you are too occupied calculating calories that you forget the real essence of taste. Ever wondered why your forefathers lived a healthy long life and you are afraid you will die any day.. You have shunned yourself from bearing the rough life. You call it posh life, I call it artificial life.

Many things you eat today is adulterated, though some products are still natural. By natural I mean, purified. Eat, Drink, Smell good things but remember, even the flashiest restaurant may not be that pure…

My advice?? Get out of your damn gym some day. Go out for a jog, get up early and you can really find pollution free air… Feel it… Make yourself and your body bearable to changes in nature. Yes, !! the seasonal changes nowadays are a matter of concern. Let your body take some pain and get immune to rough life.

Today, when I see love…


People in love, couples as we say them look warm and full of life when I see them. Love is a term restricted today to individuals though. How many guys/gals do you find today saying ” I love you ” to friends, family or even their dog! Ahem, funny! But its true, meaning of love has changed. Very few follow the original meaning, today when I see love, its all about money, status, sex and fun. Commitment word seems to have gone out of the window. A girl sees money and how funny he is, status in society, what car he drives. Men are simpler.. They go for looks, looks and looks. Sex also! How can I forget that. 🙂

A girl, picks up a boy, grooms him, changes his style, personality, how he talks, walks and even eat.. She changes everything about him with few words (Janu, honey n most famous “baby”) how can a grown up guy be a baby?? Coming back to point. Sorry for my ADD, after changing him completely, n when his parents can’t recognize him, she leaves, saying “you are not the same anymore, you have changed” I mean WTF? While sex was a way of getting close, it has got a bad name now!

I am not being anti-women, I have more female friends than male ones. My best friend is a female. I respect you. Hence, coming to men. Men are simple indeed. They need sex, looks and pretty much that only. What’s more to say! I said they are simple. Lol. Easy to explain. right?

Its all about in the mind…

I have friends who appreciate love.. I love them… Great People!

Coming to the end..
Love really has changed it face today!! Or should I say, people have changed a lot.. Feelings are no longer considered! They are an expression of the weak.

Please save me from the film stars


The film world has always excited the imagination of commoners

________________________________

Source – Times of India

________________________________

It’s the awards season of the year again. Week after week TV audiences are getting to see Bollywood stars perform on stage, with fancy awards being conferred on them to mark their achievements. Witnessing glamorous people laugh and cheer as film stars perform and make wisecracks on stage is an experience few people seem willing to miss. But this is also the time of the year when one becomes acutely aware of the long shadow that the Star Syndrome has come to cast over our lives.

Contrast

It can go down as one of the not so talked about aspects of the liberalisation era. The film world has always excited the imagination of commoners. Film stars have enjoyed a larger than life status right through the independence years, with different decades throwing up their own icons, whether it be Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, or Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan or more recently Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, among others. But the socialist era saw a clear demarcation between the lives of film stars and commoners. People visited theatres, cheered and whistled at their icons and went back to their lives.

Liberalisation has changed all that. The logic of the market has brought film stars from the distant theatre into our living rooms. In fact, they seem to be everywhere now. Besides the multiplex that is a stone’s throw away, there is television offering films 24X7, there are endorsements featuring movie stars in every commercial break on TV, and there are chat shows, news channels and reality shows which feature them on a regular basis.

In the real world too you have movie stars staring at you from the morning daily and gazing down from billboards. Why, you even catch a glimpse of them at malls these days and get to know what they are up to on the social media. It’s as if they have invaded our lives. You may argue that this has made our lives more interesting, what with commoners getting to vicariously enjoy the high life that beautiful people lead.

But this in-your-face presence legitimises questions about the real worth of the Salmans, Shahrukhs and Katrinas who seem to bestride the world like colossusi. In a historical sense, a curious reversal of sorts seems to have occurred. While traditional societies had a place for performers and entertainers, they denied them the top berth in the social order. That girls from good families were not expected to enter films in India was a manifestation of this phenomenon through most of the last century. From that extreme we have swung to the other extreme today, with film stars setting the benchmarks of success and achievement.

Attributes

Such deification clearly rests on an unreal foundation. Rarely if ever is it acknowledged today that the superhuman status that the Amitabh Bachchans and Shahrukh Khans enjoy has less to do with their innate attributes and more with the power of cinema as a medium. That it is the magic of the giant screen that transforms individuals with some talents into demigods beyond compare.

The fan will say that film stars only get what they deserve as artists. But this is untrue. As far as acting as an art form is concerned, few of the stars in India today can be called front-benchers. In fact, some of the best actors around, who work in some of the best films that are being made, seem to lead very regular lives.

This is not to deny what a Shahrukh or Salman gets to the table. With some acting, some dancing, some dishum-dishum and an individual personality that is appealing, they do ensure that the viewer gets back his money’s worth. Perhaps above all, they ensure that the producer who puts his money into a project earns returns several times over.

But even in commercial films, the stars hog undue credit. For without the screenplay, the dialogues, the music, and, above all, the direction they would be nowhere.

Perspective

There is reason to contrast movie stardom with the status sportsmen enjoy since the latter actually perform on the field. You may argue that there is talent involved even in peddling make belief convincingly. After all, every actor does not end up as a star. But that the component of talent here is less becomes evident when you consider that movie stardom gets passed on to the progeny oftener than is the case with sportsmen.

There is no getting away from the Star Syndrome without a perspective that relegates movie stars to what they are: entertainers. Entertainment is important and most of us love movie stars for the way they look, talk, come across on screen or the emotions they evoke through their roles. But this is not the same as overrating them and granting them ubiquitous presence in our lives.

For this, no doubt, the media is as much to blame, particularly the industry that has come up around stardom.

There is also the question of the role models we present before the young. Just as a society needs entertainers, it also requires engineers and businessmen, scientists and soldiers, teachers and scholars. Unfortunately, the Star Syndrome is skewing the social benchmarks of achievement. I am not certain whether I want my four-year-old son to grow up thinking Salman Khan or Shahrukh Khan as the ultimate achiever, which seems quite likely to happen. Nor am I sure whether as a grown-up it would be great for him to undergo surgeries to look handsome or take flitting in and out of relationships as his idea of love.

Shiva – The Mahadev, the destroyer of Evil


 

What is Shiva Linga?

What is behind Lord Shivabeing represented as a ‘Linga?’ The popular belief is that the Shiva Linga or Lingam represents the phallus, the emblem of the generative power in nature. According to Swami Sivananda, this is not only a serious mistake, but also a grave blunder.

Shiva Linga: The Symbol for Shiva

In Sanskrit, Linga means a ‘mark’ or a symbol, which points to an inference. Thus the Shiva Linga is a symbol of Lord Shiva – a mark that reminds of the Omnipotent Lord, which is formless.

Shiva Linga speaks to the devotee in the unmistakable language of silence, and it is only the outward symbol of the formless being, Lord Shiva, who is the undying soul seated in the chambers of your heart, who is your in-dweller, your innermost self or ‘Atman,’ and who is identical with the supreme ‘Brahman.’

The Linga as a Symbol of Creation

The ancient scripture Linga Purana says that the foremost Linga is devoid of smell, colour, taste, etc., and is spoken of as ‘Prakriti’ or Nature itself. In the post-Vedic period, the Linga became symbolical of the generative power of Lord Shiva.

The Linga is like an egg, and represents the ‘Brahmanda’ or the cosmic egg. Linga signifies that the creation is effected by the union of ‘Prakriti’ and ‘Purusha,’ the male and the female powers of Nature. Linga also signifies ‘Satya,’ ‘Jnana’ and ‘Ananta’ – Truth, knowledge and Infinity.

The 3 Parts of a Shiva Linga

A Shiva Linga consists of three parts, the lowest of which is called the ‘Brahma-Pitha,’ the middle one, the ‘Vishnu-Pitha’ and the uppermost one, the ‘Shiva-Pitha.’

The Holiest Shiva Lingas of India

There are 12 ‘Jyotir-lingas’ and 5 ‘Pancha-bhuta Lingas’ in India. The dozen Jyotir-lingas are: Kedarnath, Kashi Vishwanath, Somnath, Baijnath, Rameswar, Ghrusneswar, Bhimshankar, Mahakal, Mallikarjun, Amaleshwar, Nageshwar and Tryambakeshwar. The 5 Pancha-bhuta Lingas are: Kalahastishwar, Jambukeshwar, Arunachaleshwar, Ekambareshwar of Kanjivaram and Nataraja of Chidambaram. The temple of Lord Mahalinga at Tiruvidaimarudur known also as Madhyarjuna is regarded as the great Shiva temple of South India.

The Quartz Shiva Linga

The ‘Sphatika-linga’ is made up of quartz. It is prescribed for the deepest kind of worship of Lord Shiva. It has no color of its own, but takes on the color of the substance which comes in contact with it. It represents the ‘Nirguna Brahman’ or the attribute-less Supreme Self or the formless Shiva.

What the Linga Means to Devotees

There is a mysterious or indescribable power or ‘Shakti’ in the Linga, to induce concentration of the mind, and helps focus one’s attention. That is why the ancient sages and seers of India prescribed Linga to be installed in the temples of Lord Shiva.

For a sincere devotee, the Linga is not merely a block of stone. It is all-radiant – talks to him, raises him above body-consciousness, and helps to communicate with the Lord. Lord Rama worshiped the Shiva Linga at Rameshwaram. Ravana, the learned scholar, worshiped the golden Linga for its mystical powers.

 

Why Shiva is Worshipped in His Phallic Form:

According to another legend, once Brahma and Vishnu, two other deities of the holy Trinity, had an argument as to their supremacy. Brahma being the Creator declared himself to be more revered, while Vishnu, the Preserver, pronounced that he commanded more respect.
Just then a colossal ‘lingam’, known as Jyotirlinga, blanketed in flames, appeared before them. Both Brahma and Vishnu were awestruck by its rapidly increasing size. They forgot their quarrel and decided to determine its size. Vishnu assuming the form of a boar went to the netherworld and Brahma as a swan flew to the skies. But both of them failed to accomplish the self-assumed tasks. Then, Shiva appeared out of the ‘lingam’ and stated that he was the progenitor of them both and that henceforth he should be worshiped in his phallic form, the ‘lingam’, and not in his anthropomorphic form.

Latest O.C from Rockpire…. A new song called “The road to Salvation”


I walk this crowded place,
where every1 seems so desperate
nobdy seems to knw
they walk this empty rotten space
 
you…..
got to know,
that its a long
and deadly road
The road to salvation…
is not easy and full of thorns…
 
Sitting on this desk
alone,with a thought in mind,
I wrote this song,
lookin at my PC screen
I think I think I think
all along..
Among all employee
I got to I got to
I got to be strong…
 
You…..
got to know
there’s no end
to this bloody road
Death….
can only bring hope
to free your soul…
 
There’s a thought
in ma mind
that nobody will be
that kind,
you got to be yourself,
and listen to shit
with an ear that has fallen deaf….

Fuck off..


Everyday in life is not as good as it seems. Though one must be gutsy enough to take the issues by the throat and make them laugh with happiness. One must look beyond the stress and sad elements and find small moments of smiles!

This is where the word “fuck off” comes in. It is the most spoken word and should be used by everyone in order to get rid of issues. Just say the two golden words and you will get an inner strength to hold the problem by its neck. Its not the ultimate solution but does give you support when you are alone. Go for it, kill all issues and be stress free.!

We are living in a world where everything is complex. From a small boy’s toy car to project management in microsoft, everything is so complex that we need tools to support and help our minds. Nothing is this damn world now possible to do from a general idea and an open mind. The environment around us has been created as such by high authorities to keep us below their shoulders!

In short, one day people will come out of their shells(hope they do) and yell out “fuck off” to authorities who have made it a business to ruin normal lives..

Think about it…
