Meditate

When thoughts assail you,
you need to know how to meditate

I thought today,
what if you want to sit down and meditate
will you be able to do it?
it is a simple enough task, isn't it?

Not for me,
sadly,
i always want to do something else instead,
like sleep,
Sleeping like a log I am,

I loathe

election results and thereafter

We are not a banana republic,
We are quite the contrary actually.
In our desire for political stability, we vote.
This time around, the ones who have not had a political bone in their body, were playing vigilantes against those who did not vote.
You guys have come out, I see,
Wonderful timing, for your festering would have given this country a deeper wound if it had gone on for long,
Now you are coming out of our pores in the form of pus,
and I, for one, am relieved,
That the wound is not festering anymore.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is one thing about bodily fluids,
They have to come out.
I view the election results in that manner.

----------------------------------------------------

Will we heal?
Only if we fight, with all our might, can we ever begin healing

or at least die fighting,
do.

Don't feel guilt

I have had enough of the self-help gurus who ask the human race to stop feeling guilty.
You make us feel like what we are doing is wrong,
when what is actually wrong is the fact that there are some out there, who do anything without feeling any guilt!
I assert that feeling guilty about a wrong one has done is totally human,
and not feeling guilt is what is inhuman,
people like that should be called out,
the self-help gurus will seriously be helping the ones who feel guilty if they can declare that it is only normal to feel guilt,
everyone should bloody well feel it.

It's a dilemma many of us face in today's world. We are nothing without what is human in us. The farther we have gone from our humanity, the closer we find ourselves to nothingness.
(For instance, I have a desire to write, not for fame, not for money, not for people to know what I think about something, not even for me to know what I think about something. It is just something I want to do.
What a strange thing to want to do, I have often thought.
Why would anyone want to sit and write?)

I wonder what languages have done to the world.

In a hurry

I need to get out of this feeling that there is not much time left,
in the day,
in the hour,
or in my life,
or in the race's lifetime etc,

I want to be able to let time engulf me
and expand itself
Let me give you an example at this point,

say you have got a new shoe,
it is too tight for you
and you get shoe bites,
day 1 is bad,
day 2 is bad
day 3 is bad
day 4 is bad
then slowly slowly your feet start telling the shoe how to be.
or the shoe tells your feet how to be.
and you make peace with each other and live with each other.

in that manner is the equation between you and time,
slowly slowly you make your peace with time.
understood?

Do not say to me that you are unable to do so,
Because that is something you must do
and so, there is no getting away.

Doubt and faith

While many among us find it difficult to live without faith, there are many among us who are riddled by doubt. People with faith tend to be stronger because they are always in a group. Belief gets fortified if many believe.
Doubters can be strong but they are seldom happy or at peace.
I read about the last days of a o Hume about how he had a perfectly peaceful and happy end despite being a disbeliever all his life. I feel that was possible because though he didn’t believe in a god Hume believed in humanity he believed in his thoughts and these beliefs gave him peace. We are a in a difficult situation these days as belief in even these things are on shaky ground. Now the believers are having a laugh at the misery of the doubters, who are willing to believe in anything.

International day of the girl child


This day is particularly significant as it is not only a celebration of the girl child, but also is the time  to acknowledge the need for something, take stock of the progress made so far, and making concrete strategies for tomorrow.
It is a great honour for my company to be a participant of the process.
Complete equality of access is the goal and as corporates, we have a responsibility to facilitate this. We have to ensure that as a people, any kind of dicrimination is unpardonable as we cannot afford to make mistakes as the main drivers of the emerging economy.
If I look around in the job market, I am happy to note that today more than ever the talent pool includes a considerable number of women as men. This is an opportunity to tell the girl child that nothing is impossible, including being leaders. Economy turns out be a stubborn place too, reluctant to let go of the reins.
With the ‘be the ceo/cto/cfo for a day, we want to be a part of the shake-up.

One step at a time
In the dark, walk.
 






Pain

The pains of creating are many
What is your threshold for pain?
Go on,
Don’t you love pain?
