Random Thoughtful Question #2

༄༅། What does “कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन” actually mean? ། I have always gauged myself as a hyper-optimistic person. “कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन”, have always been my best line, my inspiration. The shloka... कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन । मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ।। English Transliteration... Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Falesshu Kadaachana । Ma KarmaphalaHetuhBhuhMa Te SangostvaKarmaNi ।। What does it mean? Literally, it says “( To ) Karma is your only right, fruits of action (results) should not be your motive. You are not the the cause of the results of your activities, and should never be attached to not doing your duty. ” Yes, the noble motive of “ to do ” should never be inspired by the desire of “ what and why ”. But, doesn’t the feeling of “ what would come ” if “ I do ” so, come intuitively the moment one starts a job? If a midfielder loses the sight on the opponent’s goalpost, would he be able t

Random Thoughtful Question #1

༄༅། When it's your life, why they always want to decide it for you!? །   Probably, it gives them a feeling that they care for you. They want to be responsibly acknowledged for whatever good / bad may happen. But, don't they forget it's Your life....and it's Your future that they want to actually "remote" control! Shouldn't they allow You, yes with due considerations and guidance, to decide Your tomorrow....whatever may be the form....Education, Profession, Wife or in fact the Child!?

Death of a Project: Who's the Boss?

Here I’m sitting in the Board Room, smiling on learning how a project is being murdered cold blooded! Every process has a structure, so is true with this “closing the ongoing Project” thing too. We worked like daily wage labourers over 2 months, literally 24*7, and what a grand-result we are witnessing, the board sentencing us, two poor people, to hit the last nail in the coffin! So, it started 6-7 weeks ago, when we were assigned to look after this new project, to analyse and appraise the case. We did the best, and the Board killed the engine running some excel-sheet model! But, this post is not to talk about our hard work, it’s on what I’m scribbling and doodling here in the board room. The Doodle So, ‘ Step-1 ’ is about pulling the leg (टांग खींचना). Every domain-expert starts with his/her own set of criticism, and finally ends with an “I can’t say” notion. So much of “I can’t say” is ultimately to result in “ F**k the project up ”; but before it comes the ‘Step-2’, just because

Banarsi Holi

Last year, I could not go to my hometown, Banaras (Varanasi वाराणसी or Kashi काशी) on Diwali (Deepawali). That was one of the worst days of my life, that I realized when we had to go out for the dinner and we missed the suite of delicious home-made pakwans (food). Next day only, I booked round-trip tickets for Banaras. And, wallah , what fun I had this time on Holi....after a long gap...we played holi going topless (nicer term for tearing tees n shirts) with all sort of colors, gulaal and MUD! :)) It took me over 2hrs to be somewhat recognisable, and I still have my nails red coloured! But, what we guys, me n my ol'school friends, really treasured this Holi is the bond....nothing can ever break! Never ever! :) As promised this post is to share with you all my Holi-pictures....

Nagaon Beach, Alibaug

Few days back, we had a visit to Nagaon Beach, Alibaug . This place is around 7km from the main Alibaug town. It's one of the best beaches around Mumbai. This beach is very clean and quite long too. The best thing about the beach, besides its serenity, is that you can ride your bike along it! This place is generally not as much crowded as other beaches of Alibaug; thus, there’re not a many shops or eateries nearby. One needs to bring eatables and drinking water preferably from the town. I read on some blog that "Sagar kinare" song of the movie "Sagar" was shot on this beach. Sagar is my one of my most favorite movie, and I share the similar feelings with this Arabian Sea beach too!
