GOD found!!!

We all love our TVs. Love it and can't move our eyes off it. Have you ever thought of the reason? We just can't help it. How many of our new year resolutions don't begin with "watch less tv"? Year after year?

Have you ever thought of reason behind it? Because we are bored to death? Because we are completely disillusioned by life so much that we are reaching out for least harmful escapism.

Not exactly. We love TV because GOD is there in it. Yes GOD is.

In my TV GOD is in channel 14 :) ;)

Stay productive after work

Really why am I here? I am supposed to read the book by some Nobel winning author. Oh, now I read books only by Nobel laurates. Does not matter if I return it after reading only 50 pages and keep it for around 2 months and then give up. I am supposed to give a better look and feel to my key board app. I am not  supposed to work on my newspaper app. And I am supposed to select one of my incomplete apps and bring them to at least beta stage. (And I am supposed to go and bring my charger before my laptop goes to hibernate).

Now I remember. I wanted to write about how to stay awake  - both physically and intellectually after a day of work and pursue our passion. I have been planning all these days to work on the above things, but each day, I come home tired (and if I do not go to office , I stay home tired) and gobble and gobble more and watch stupid tv shows for 100th time and then eat supper and go to sleep. Mine might be extreme case. But many of you might face similar problems.


We and our future

Children are our future. As goes the one of the overused cliches. But the truth is even more. For we Indians, our children are the purpose of our lives.

But how are we protecting our children? Look at the case of Faisal and now Mahi. We send our children in buses where the drivers turn to killers. We let our children play outside where open bore wells swallow them. Then we blame the government saying it is indifferent. What about us? How many of us do know about overcrowded school busses and autos but still keep quiet. What do we do when we see, an open bore well? Do we at least inform the authorities? How responsible we are ? Are we also not to blame for such deaths?

Faisal an LKG student fell off the bus, when door closed and the bus drover over him. The driver of the bus, put him back to the bus, drove for 2 kms and abandoned the bus. The child died before onlookers could take him to hospital.

Domestic Violence

My parent's generation suffered in silence, no matter how much they were abused, ill treated and physically assaulted by their husbands. Our generation tried to fight, but not with much success. That should not be the case with your generation, children. You have all the courage, self confidence you need. And you get all the support from us, your parents. If your husband ill treats you either physically or emotionally, you need not keep quiet. You should stop him, if not possible, leave him. We have nurtured you and given you all our love and care so that you stand up for yourselves.

Domestic violence is another ugly truth in many Indian households. Even today ,when  girls are as educated and as employed as boys. And most women, suffer in silence being afraid of bad name. Come on, if some one hurts you in any way, he should be ashamed, not you.

Don't get me wrong. I am not a home breaker. I am not advising anyone to leave their husband just for petty reasons. But if they are…

The ultimate escapist

I blog under any of the following conditions.
1> I am feeling so depressed - that I am about burst into tears any second that I need to find something humorous and blog about it
2> I strongly feel about some injustice (done to others) and want to express my opinion about it .
3> I have so many works that I do not know where to start. In order to escape I blog some meaningless thing.

2 happens very rarely. Currently it is 3, I am supposed to clean the code, clean the screen and clean the kitchen  and the house. And of course cook at least rice and sambar. So here I am.

ಅನುಕೂಲ ವೇದಾಂತ

ಈ ಶಬ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ವೇದಾಂತವನ್ನು ನಮ್ಮ ಅನುಕೂಲಕ್ಕೆ ತಕ್ಕ ಹಾಗೆ ತಿರುಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಎಂಬ ಅರ್ಥ. ಆದರೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಒಂದು ಅರ್ಥ ಆಗಬಹುದಲ್ಲ. ಅನುಕೂಲ ಪರಿಸ್ತಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ವೇದಾಂತ ಹೇಳುವುದು. ಮಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದಂತೆ ನಮ್ಮ usual self(ish) ಆಗಿ ಇರುವದು. ಈಗ ನೋಡಿ charity ಎಂದೋ, ವರ್ಲ್ಡ್ ಫುಡ್ ಪ್ರೋಗ್ರಾಮ್ ಎಂದೋ ಓದಿದ್ದೆ ಓದಿದ್ದು ಕೊರೆದಿದ್ದೆ ಕೊರೆದಿದ್ದು. ಆಮೇಲೆ ಕೆಲಸದ ಮುದಿ ಯಮ್ಮ ಹುಷಾರಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಎರಡು ದಿನ ಬರದಿದ್ದರೆ ಅವಳ ಸಂಬಳದಲ್ಲಿ ದುಡ್ಡು ಹಿಡಿದುಕೊಂಡು ಕೊಡುವದು. ಗಂಡ ಅವನ ತಂಗಿಯ ಮಗನಿಗೆ ಒಂದು ಸಾವಿರಾರು ರೂಪಾಯಿಯ ಉಡುಗೊರೆ ಕೊಡುತ್ತಾನೆ ಎಂದರೆ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ರಂಪ ಮಾಡುವದು.
ಅಷ್ಟಲ್ಲದೇ ನಮ್ಮ ಹಿರಿಯರು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದರೆ - ಸಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಹೇಳಾಕೆ ಇರ್ತೈತೆ ಬಾನ ಉಂಬಾಕೆ ಇರ್ತೈತೆ ಎಂದು. 
ಆದರೆ ನಿಜವಾಗಿಯೂ ಈ ವೇದ, ವೇದಾಂತ ಪುರಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಇರುವದಾದರು ಏನು. ಬರಿ ದೇವರೇ ನನಗೆ ಇದನ್ನು ಕೊಡು, ಅದನ್ನು ಕೊಡು, ನಿನಗೆ ನಾನು ಎರಡು ತೆಂಗಿನಕಾಯಿ ಒಡೆಯುತ್ತೇನೆ, ಮೂರು ಪ್ರದಕ್ಷಿಣೆ ಹಾಕುತ್ತೇನೆ ಎನ್ನುವ ಲೇವಾ - ಲೇವಿಯೇ ? (ಅಲ್ಲ, ಅದರಲ್ಲೂ ಮೋಸ, ದೇವರು ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರದಿಕ್ಷಿಣೆ ತೆಗೆದು ಕೊಂಡು ಮಾಡುವದಾದರೂ ಏನು. ಆ ಒಡೆದ ತೆಂಗಿನ ಕಾಯಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಹೋಳಾದರು ಅವನಿಗೆ ಸಿಗುವುದೇ) ಅಥವಾ ನೀನೆ ಇಂದ್ರ, ನೀನೆ ಚಂದ್ರ, ನಿನ್ನ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಇನ್ಯಾರು ಇಲ್ಲ ಎಂಬ ಮುಖ ಸ್ತುತಿಯೇ? ಹೀಗೆಲ್ಲ ವಿಶ್ಲೇಷಣೆ ಮಾಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಪುನಸ್ಕಾರಗಳ ಅರ್ಥವನ್ನೇ ಕನ್ಫ್ಯೂಸ್ …
