Why? What? Who? Shocks

I wonder Why? I wonder What? I wonder Who? I don't know When....

I have just had my baby boy and could do one small change to help myself tide through my third trimester ante-natal term and the post-natal term. I STOPPED READING OR WATCHING NEWS. Then, when I finally thought it's high time I got back to the real world, I started lending a listening ear to the news items that came floating by from friends, channels and paper after six long months. I have still not made up my mind to read them though.

Guess what are the first things I heard ?!! - 1. Inappropriate behavior towards a six year old in a popular Bangalore based school. 2. A murder of two people who were last seen welcoming friends inside the house for dinner.

Among many more were robberies, plane crashes, inflation rates, hospital mishaps and like oasis on a desert terrain, I did hear about the lesser problematic topics - politics, education, social service and religion.

My questions to no one in particular are:

Why is the world the way it is?

What joy do people find in doing things that harm the innocent?

Who inspires the wrong in the society? ( It is a different discussion that there is no right or wrong in this world, just thinking makes it so.. but you get what I mean by wrong in this context I guess..)

And when will people realize that the time they spend planning a wrong doing is much more than that spent for doing the right thing?

As much as I hate to admit, I guess everyone is slightly affected in the mind to be doing what they are doing..( even you and me ) but caution needs to be exercised if we have to walk around in this crowded world among people with serious psychological disorders..

What causes these disorders? Where is the root? Can it be cured? Do we really know what is going wrong?? are questions that may be pending in every psycho therapist's mind. Quite Shocking!!! that Peace and Sense is losing meaning in this world among many other aspects like Happiness and Contentment.

Splash on Stress

  • Stress is an unwelcome guest.
  • Stress is a thief who steals health.
  • Try as much as you may want to, but stress seeps in somehow.
  • Stress is a habit which requires no effort or practice. And we all know Habit is second Nature :)
  • Stress is a sentence without full stop. You can shorten the sentence temporarily if you want to, with outings, music, yoga, or any other mechanism of your choice.
  • Stress is like an ailment without cure. It can be treated, minimized, and dealt with if you put in effort from within.
  • Your only option is to stay away from stress causing reagents - people, things, places, conversations, ideas, thoughts.

Is Orange Facial Costly anymore?

I love to eat Oranges. I peeled a whole Orange fruit wondering how beautiful an Orange is, in its making and how nicely all of its eleven slices were packed in the Orange colored shield. And I think of it almost every time eat an Orange.

My daughter as a two year old, loves to experiment. I let her pick up one slice from my plate and continued eating my share. She started peeling the fibrous sheath and tried to squeeze the juice into her mouth.. It was her way of really enjoying the fruit. And besides noticing how much she enjoyed eating the orange slice, I could not help yelling about the juice spilling on the floor. It was not about having to clean the floor after she is done, but because I thought Rs.40 per Orange was expensive and it was not okay to waste even a drop of Orange juice according to me.

Then I thought may be that is why an Orange Peel Facial pack in the market or a beauty parlor was expensive. Just as I was thinking about this, my father said, "If it is for an Orange Fruit Facial, people are willing to pay sky-high bills, whereas a two year old wasting few drops of juice as she is learning to enjoy an Orange slice, seems expensive, is it??"

Makes sense... Why worry about small things which are going to make a big difference in a child's life?

We should just remember that we can buy ten Oranges, the cost of which equals one sitting in a Beauty parlor for an Orange Fruit facial. Food for Thought for all new parents :-)

Kannukku Vandha Gadhi

சில நாட்களுக்கு முன்பு ஒரு தமிழ் பாடலில் "கஞ்சா வெச்ச கண்ணு " என்ற வாக்கு காதில் விழுந்தது. சரியாக காதில் வாங்கினேனா என்று கேட்டால் இல்லை. வெச்ச கண்ணா, இல்லை அடிச்ச கண்ணா என்று கேட்டால் தெரியாது. ஏன் என்றால் மனசில் பதிந்தது கண்ணுக்கு கஞ்சாவை வைத்து ஒரு பாடல் வரி எழுதப்பட்டுள்ளது. உண்மையில் எனக்கு தூக்கி வாரி போட்டது.

ஏன்யா கயல் விழி , மான் விழி, மீன் விழி, மை விழி, மலர் விழி இதெல்லாம் தோன்ற வில்லையா?

கவிதை என்பது தொலை தூரம் போய் விட்டது இன்றைய தமிழ் திரை பாடல்களில். கவிதை திறன் இல்லாமல் போய் விட்டது என்று நான் சொல்ல வில்லை.மக்கள் கடந்த காலத்தை விட இன்னும் அதிகம் திறமை உள்ளவர்களாகத்தான் இருக்கிறார்கள். இருந்தும், இன்றைய பாடல்களில் சொல் நயம், கவி நயம் இல்லை என்பது மிகவும் வருத்தத்திற்கு உரிய விஷயம்.

Strange, but fact!!!!

Last week I had to visit this most talked of microbiological laboratory and was amazed at the way they conducted business... Everything was so orderly.

While I waited for my turn I realized, that everyone there including myself were in silent prayer/meditation hoping that the tests that each one had come to take would prove negative ( that is to say, problem free health..)

Each patient is ready to pay high sums, take a blood sample, wait for a report and hope to God that the report will be favorable...Strange... Pay , wait and go through rough tides in the lab just to get a negative result on the problem...and yet not change the deteriorating way of life and food habits. A huge sigh of relief on most people's face is  a sight to see and a blessing..

Lets eat healthy, live healthy, think healthy and be healthy and if possible have less of these high sounding micro lab procedures at least till age fifty in my view...
