HAIKU # 82 -86 Five elements – Unpredictable

When the things are not balanced whether in nature or our life, the results are always disaster.

AIR

Soft breeze gentle bliss
Strong winds storm of destruction
Absence instant death

WATER

Drops nurturing life
Excess flood of destruction
Absence lifeless Earth

FIRE

Flames a glowing warmth
Molten lava volcanoic
Absence tastless life

EARTH

Green and moist growth food
Hard surface barren dry lands
Too Soft soil week roots

EITHER/SPACE

Profound purity

Humans can never pollute

Power of shuna

Am I doing Charity?

Someone asked me
What you do for charity?
I said ‘nothing’
Silence !!!
Then a look of superiority
On the other face
Is the charity a great deed?
Well I do not think so
I feed a hungry mouth
That is kindness
I wipe tears of pain
That is compassion
I stand by someone
That is sympathy
I never ignore plea for help
That is duty
I embrace every being
That is humility
I stand by my dear ones
That is love
I is not my ego
That is consciousness
I am what HE choose to make me
That is why I am nothing
But reflection of HIM
My acts are not for others
That is my true self

Ancient Indian History

Any one interested in Ancient Indian History, follow Eric . He is going to make it simple and interesting

Written Words Never Die

Starting today, 5th October 2018, my new blogging schedule includes Fridays where I’ll share snippets of ancient Indian history – BCE to early CE – that focuses on the region covered by the Deccan in the south.

The region which was once occupied by three famous dynasties – the Cheran, Cholan, and Pandyan – broadly encompasses five current Indian states: Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Some historians used a collective term – Tamilakam – the Age of the Tamils, to describe this period. Tamil in this usage referred not only to the Tamils of modern day India but all the peoples of the south. Another term – Dravidians – is in more common usage now.

I’m currently finalizing my next work of fiction: a literary historical novel based on Silappatikaram, one of the five…

Are we disposing of e-waste safely?

Every year GITEX shopper is held in Dubai and numerous other such events in other parts of the world to introduce latest technology in the market. People await eagerly for these mega events. The latest gadgets and IT related products are introduced at these events . All the vendors come with their special offers and discounts to attract the consumers. It is good to see all the technology advancement. The sales of mobiles are especially high, even I have bought products at times. Since my receny visit few questions are constantly arising in my mind, i.e.

Is the fast tech. and innovation at such a rapid pace good for the society?
Are we aware of hazardous effects of improper disposal of e-waste on environment ?.

It is mind-boggling that in a year’s time what you bought seems like obsolete. I am not against development but least the Tech companies and their distributors could do is :

1. Encourage the people to trade-in the gadgets which they are no longer using.
2. The products which are not usable or broken can be disposed off at a collection place within the exhibition centers.
3. These places are best for consumer awareness programmes about the harmful effects of storing at home the gadgets no longer in use.
4. A display highlighting what can be disposed of in garbage, what can be given for recycling or for proper disposal of e-waste would go a long way in raising the consumer awareness.

Just for an example take the case of batteries of mobile phones. Despite having knowledge a click away, how many of us are aware of harmful effects of unused batteries lying at home for long time?

Lets be conscious about using the Technology and saving our environment by proper disposal of e-waste after enjoying it “

Random – The tradition of quality continues

It is amazing to visit the favorite place of one’s growing-up years. Some places have 2-3 generation of proud continuity with the quality and taste still the same. And most important the humality of the young owners who represent their grandfathers and fathers makes them more special

Experience of 50 + years of making samosas

Continuing the tradition of quality and good customer relationships

The old ways of making tea on clay chulas ( burners), a small shop on Jammu-Srinagar highway known for tea-mathi ( snack), a most stop for travelers

Shop of barfi (sweets) on Jammu-pathankot highway, the most authentic taste, continues to pull the travelers and locals alike

No one can beat the taste of Rajma-rice with pure ghee of this shop of 3 generations on Jammu-Srinagar highway

They still do the grinding of spices and chuteny in old ways with stone grinders

Continuing his father’s buisness this young man is proud of his father’s name. Most of us Jammuities who have known Girdhari have fond Memories. Despite having such a hugh customer base he would remember the individual tastes and used to address everyone “uncleji”

Maniram made Jana falls in Manali famous and must visit with his authentic and traditional Himachli food thali complete with brown local rice pudding.

The Best Way to Get More Blog Subscribers

One of the best blog to check out for helpful tips.

The Art of Blogging

This is the question I get asked the most.

Despite writing on this subject a couple of times, and basically dissecting every tip and tactic I know for converting site visitors intoregular readers, people seem to think there’s some big secret.

No one wants to believe that there’s no magical secret. They’d rather fantasize about some forbidden technique that drives subscriber attraction. If I’d just share the magical words that make the difference, they’d immediately put those words to use.

OK, I give up. I’ll tell you the real secret.
