The World I live in

I have all the time in the world...and I have all the things in the world that I can learn......Known is a drop and unknown is the is so true in this life...and especially the life of a software proffessional coz no matter whatever you could have studied (Bachelor of Engg) to become one, or all the learning you do while you are a s/w proffessional, is never enough. You would still feel that there is sooooo much more to learn...and various situations when I stand quiet..wondering...what is being talked around...only reinstates the fact that I need to know more.

Known is a drop ..unknown is an ocean.

Yet, All the world is my stage and I can play the role I choose to. Day b4 yesterday, b4 leaving for office...I had this high energy....was jumping and moving/dancing for some tune being played in computer and I was really happy and enthusiastic...and I kept on telling myself....I have got all the time in the learn and finish off few pending tasks and be eager for more :-). And it felt good.

For no reason, during work, suddenly I felt all the enthusiasm drain out and only skepticism come in and confusion over few things regarding work only compounded those feelings. So much to my high energy and feelings :-D

Still, It's a beautiful life.

I have it all and can get only more in the times to come. :)...My family is really kewl..and nice..and good...with my relatives....and friends..who are really sseems a bliss to be living..and this is how I live in :)


There is this other world, where I face disappointment, anger, sadness, anguish...pain...and frustration almost on a regular basis. It is a straw in me....which kinda sucks away the life from me..however indifferent I chose to be. The disappointment over the helplessness on the situation or the lack of my action or the excess of which could result in worser results or the apprehension about the prospect that is awaiting me. There are various other things that Im not able to explain but one of those feeling is intent to blog about the same give a vent for them.

I believe most people in this world have these two which there aint any big issues and the other world, which crops up once in a while to remind and drain most of our gains from the other world.

However, I still believe, its a beautiful world coz it has these two worlds within a part of it and still chugs along...I dont have anything to lose, as I always carry the hope of fixing the other world to betterment :-)

who am I ?

Who am I ? Such a simple question ain't it ? Yet, the answer for this question varies from one person to another....and that underscores the individuality of each one of us. The fact that we are all differrent in one way or the other.True.

Or is it true? Are we really differrent. Last week of september threw up a an inspiring incident out of an accident.

Sixteen year old Hithenthran from Chennai met with an accident and was pronounced brain dead in the Apollo hospital. His parents took the bold decision to donated some of his organs to the people who are in desperated need of donor. They donated his kidney, cornea, liver and Heart. All these organs are serving and helping somebody else to live in this world now. His heart is beating in the body of a girl who was suffering from heart failure. The story of how Chennai traffic police did their job in the quick transportation deservers appreciation and another blog.


Lets get back to the topic. Are we the body that we have now? in that case, Hithentran is still living in the bodies of another people. It is very important to note that his heart has gone to a girl child. This should serve as slapping reminder to people who differentiate girls and boys (men and women) on some ridiculous criteria. In my opine, there aint much difference to a man or women but for the few physical difference which are there for a purpose and that doesnt warrant a discrimination between the two sexes to the extent seen in different parts of the world. What is needed is discretion. Period.

A quick search on the internet brings back the list of organs that can be donated to others after one's death and that should seal all the discrimination amongst human beings on the physical criteria.

Allright, we've been talkin on the physical level...what about the mind? That is the place where the real difference exists. Or does it?

what sort of feelings do you go through in your life? Happy? Sorrow? Angry? Depression?
Put in the same situation, almost all the people in the world would experience the same feeling.

We feel sad when some one passes away.
We feel happy when our work has won accolades.
We feel angry when we were treated rudely/badly/inappropriate manner.
We feel when we encounter

There is not much difference in the way we all feel given a siutaiton. Do you see what Im saying?
However, the way we handle how we feel (read as emotions), can bring about the difference.

Let us touch upon another aspect on the mind level - thought process.

Do you think you have the control over your thought process? Well, I dont think we have control over our thought proces. I can be wrong here, but that is a remote possiblity.
Thoughts come and go whether we like it or not. You can brand the thoughts as good thoughts or bad thought but they come and grab your attention (or drag your attention from your activity) and goes. However, they will stay if you grab them - see the difference. They grab your attention initially and leave the option to you - if you grab it, you will be in the same though else you will be out of it. Simple.

Ok - even in Mind level, we don't seem to see much difference between humans coz there are not much options left. ;-) wink wink.

Physical level - there is not much difference between humans.
Mind level - there are not much difference between humans.

Then, shouldnt you consider yourself to be fools if you see difference amongst people and discriminate them based on trivial things such as sex, place, caste creed and religion. Give me a break.

We are all one.

If we are all one, who am I? May be there is something that is unique (read as different about me) about me that sets me apart so that I can define myself. But what is so unique about me if we are all one and the same ????

Who am I ??

I'm a muslim; I'm a hindu; I'm a christain; I'm a jew

On the occassion of Gandhi jayanthi, I had the opportunity to watch a wonderful movie named Gandhi (no surprises here :-D). I regretted and realized the mistake of not watching this movie so far and also how ill informed I was about Gandhi and too a good extent of the various devlopments that shaped Indian independence. The movie was good on the handling the content of Gandhi and Indian independence and fitting it in to 3 hour time frame of movie standards. I'm not much of a movie critic and will stop at this level.

In that movie, Gandhiji utters a sentence which goes like - I'm a muslim; I'm a hindu; I'm a christain; I'm a jew. It was such a wonderful expression which speaks of oneness in humanity and the intent of Gandhiji to convey this message. If I juxtapose the unfortunate events happening in present day India, I wonder how can these self proclaimed saviors of religion who hail from this land claim their affliation to one particular religion alone? - when the father of nation can proclaim that he encompasses all of them.

Also, Gandhiji couldnt complete his planned trip to Pakistan. I wonder all the good that could have happened had that trip to Pakistan been completed by Gandhiji. The innumerable battles and fights for border issues, the two wars India and Pakistan fought, the creation of a seperate nation of Bangladesh, the Kashmir issue and most importantly, the mistrust amongst the people of the two nation. All these could have been potentially avoided had that trip happened or so I think so.
