Nabakalebara-Eid-Rathajatra: A divine intervention

June 18, 2015, 'Nabakalebara-Rathajatra-Eid' on one day: Is it just a coincidence, or a wake up call for the ignorant we. You decide, who am I ?

We, the arrogant so called knowledgeable people debarred 'Salabega'' in the past to meet Jagannath, he came out and and made everything stand still for the devotee without cast/race. The outcome - "We learnt Nothing"

Its still the same and we still restrict the almighty and argue to put him in the Hindu clad and insult his very name 'Jagata ra Natha (God of the World) - Jagannath'. We are testing his patience or the almighty has still faith on his beautiful (?) creation - only he knows, who am I ?

Nabakalebara - The almighty is willingly waking us up to see the reality, the truth, - nothing is constant. Everything has an end, but the Brahma (divine soul). Soul, that neither starts nor ends, neither a Hindu nor a Muslim or anything...what we are learning?- You better know, who am I ?

Eid: An occasions for showing gratitude to God and remembering Him after month long daytime fast. What we are doing, you better know, who am I?

Rathajatra - The very meaning (as I think) is the irresistible force of the almighty that crushes all ignorance on the way to make us reach the final destination. What we are doing, you better know, who am I?

Still, he has not lost his faith on us, and meticulously arranged the planetary motion to make us realize God is one. Nabakalebara-Eid-Rathajatra are the same with varied interpretation and its time to know the truth and embrace all. Is it a deliberate attempt to send us one more symbol, he only knows, who am I?

Dear almighty Jagannath, Wish you a very Happy Eid.



Note: Nabakalebara is a Hindu ritual performed at Jagannath temple, Odisha, India that symbolizes life is a circle of event, death is inevitable if there is life and vice-versa.

I pray God to repeat it again


Morning
The alarm disturbs
I wake up
She pushes me for taking bath
Forces me for breakfast, chawanprash, milk and a long menu
Clock approaches 9
She gives me wallet, watch, spectacles, sprout box and bike key
Wishes me all the best for office
Waves a lovely good bye
Reminds me for helmet
Looks at my exit from the balcony.
Afternoon
Opens the door before I ring the bell
Makes me wash my hands
Serves lunch
I sense her happiness in her to-n-fro from kitchen
I sense her happiness in her drops of sweat on forehead
Makes me eat some extra
Eats at the same plate…idiot
Evening
Serves me glucose
Makes me pray and bow at Gods
Googles for snacks dish and put her heart on cooking
Asks me in child like innocence, "Is it ok at least"?
I fake anger
She accepts, and I sense her love in it
Night
Scolds my serials for spoiling my studies
Bakes roti (bread)
Makes me eat early
Forces me to drink the ill smelling milk…yuk
Orders me-don’t stick to the computer
Cleans the kitchen
Makes sure the home is locked
Loves me
and I thank God for the wonderful today, and pray to repeat it again
She is, who she is – the better half

Yashodhara

Yashodhara

Do you know that name?
Prince Siddhartha, Gautama, Sakyamuni, Buddha.
Everybody knows these names...
but...
Yashodhara?

Yashodhara was married to Siddhartha.
She loved him dearly.
One night Siddhartha left her and their son, Rahul ...
while they were sleeping, to seek Enlightenment...
... to become Buddha.

He did not even say a word to her when he left.

Yashodhara has shown compassion for the sick
... and ailing long before Siddhartha ever did!
... long before Siddhartha was even aware of suffering!
Who can say if he owed his Enlightenment to her?
Perhaps Yashodhara wanted to leave Siddhartha and Rahul.
How can we ever know if Yashodhara fell victim to anger ...
... to loneliness or bitterness
... after Siddhartha left her.
Who even thought about her?

What must she have said when Rahul, her son...
...asked that eternal question
Where is my father?
What must she have told him?

How could a mother leave her own child in the middle of the night?
lt is only possible for a man to do.
After that, Yashodhara had no choice.
She had to lead a life of renunciation.
She cut off her hair,
and lived like an ascetic.

lf your thoughts toward Dharma were of the same intensity ...
... as the love and passion you have shown to your teenaged lover or the newly married wife...
... you would have become a Buddha ...
... in this very body

... in this very life.




Inspired by the movie 'Samsara'

It's all over

She came like a breeze
And I was taken

I heard her voice
That still jingles in my heart

She told, sing me with me
And the melody was spectacular

She wrote on me
The novel was bestseller

She smiled at me
Life was beautiful

She was in tears
It was raining heavily

She parted away
There was an eclipse

She told burn all my memories
I hardly know what’s left

She told forget me
I don’t know what I remember anymore


...but I know, it’s all over :(

My name in yours

I
Love to smile when you are there in my thoughts
Love to dream when its about you
Love the time which revolves around you
Love all those places where we spent time together
Love to be in you

And...

My name in yours

She is



She

The Strength of my life
Whom I adore
Keys to all my happiness
Fills me with her tender touch
An Inevitable part

Simple but honest
The rare one with enormous excellence
Decent, but always inane
Brighten me with her smile, youthfulness filled with affection
Obscure to many just like the twilight
Incomparable

And with her,
Smile touches my lips...
Dreams come to my eyes...
Happiness besieges and sweet flings encircle me..........

Where do you want to land ???

Love can be inconvenient,
perhaps inappropriate.
It can be dangerous.
Make us do things, 
we wouldn't dream of doing.

But wrong?

That just depends on
Where we end up, doesn't it?
