TRANQUILITY

Leaving office, stressed out but extremely happy on completing a project, I decided to go to the beach along with my friend; to spend some time away from this maddening life and get some fresh air. I even expected watching the sun descend slowly and disappear over the horizon of the Bay of Bengal. Reaching there, I realized that Bay of Bengal is in the east and I cannot bid a goodbye, but can only welcome the rising sun in the morning. 



I was sitting there quietly, with my legs sprawled out in front of me, sometimes gazing at the infinite sky and sometimes watching the waves weave into each other. Strong cold breeze from the sea blew on my face and through my hair, taking all my fear, stress and anxiety with them. The cool waves touched my feet and subsided almost as quickly as they rose. Relaxing there, I sensed a feeling of freedom I had never experienced before.
 

 A bit further, I saw some little boys and girls building sand castles. Within no time, the waves would wipe out what they had built but it did not shatter their spirits. In fact, it seemed as if they were waiting for the tides to wash them off so that they could start building better ones again.
 

 On my other side, there was a beautiful young couple lying down on their backs, talking and laughing, nudging each other, having fun in their own world. They didn’t care where the world was heading or what people may think about them. But I feared these were the only few moments they will be enjoying. As soon as they leave this place, they will be back in the rush, the rush to survive in the envious world.
 
I was already floating in the ocean of my own thoughts. Just then my friend heaved a sigh of relief which brought me back to the shore.

“It feels so good sitting here on the beach; enjoying watching the far horizon, isn’t it?” I asked him.

“Ya, I’ve never felt so peaceful before. Good you suggested that we should come here,” he replied.
 
"We never get to see such horizon in the cities. They open our soul to a different dimension!" I exclaimed.
 

 He preferred staying quiet. I don't know what was going on in his mind, whether he was feeling the same way or observing the same things which I did. But one thing was clear, he was feeling different and light. Nature has its own secret way of lifting your mood instantly. At that moment I realized to be Happy and Peaceful is the attribute of nature, simple and soothing, away from the worldly pleasures which may give you a luxurious life but no tranquility.
 
Suddenly, my mind was flooded with questions, questions to which i had no answer......
 

“Why are we here in this world? What is the purpose of our existence?”
 

“How can we endure a peaceful life, life free from agony?”
 
“Is this the life, the way we are living, are supposed to live?”
 

“Are we in this world to earn the luxuries of the world by destroying our peace of mind, by challenging our limits and then leave this beautiful place, empty hands?”

“What is the thing that will help us to achieve the eternal happiness and tranquility?”

I believe the day we find the key to these questions, we will find TRANQUILITY!!

Sovereignty lies to Almighty.

I hardly comment on peoples post on Facebook but whenever I do, it ends into a debate or sometimes people stop replying.

I think people just don't want to know the truth and want themselves to remain in their fake comfort zones thinking that there is no better life other than what they are living now.

One more discussion on Facebook ends abruptly...

"An earthly kingdom cannot exist without inequality of persons. Some must be free, some serfs, some rulers, some subjects."- Martin Luther King.

I am quoting it here in context of people who think that merciless punishment and stricter laws will do any good.It never has, It never will.

The world will always have the rapists{and other similar social evils}, and protesting violently and vehemently is never gonna change anything.

Its like trying to cure a disease which never has any cure.All we can do is take precautions, to make sure that we don't fall prey to the disease.We can never save women from rapists. All we c…

The Path Less Trodden!!!

By the steeds that run, with panting breath, Striking sparks of fire by their hooves And scouring to the raid at dawn And raising the dust in the clouds the while, Penetrating forthwith as one into the midst. (Quran 100:1-5)
It all started with a walk. Thirteen horses lining up; moving out from the usual arena on the path untrodden and into the wild, on a muddy trail with lush green bushes on both the sides, the fresh morning breeze fluttering the ears of my horse(Santro).

A week long wait was over and our patience had finally paid off. A chill went down our spine the moment we saw a glimpse of the Himayat Sagar lake. Trotting among the bushes and splashing on the muddy waters, we finally reached the banks of the lake. We all were eagerly waiting for the next expected instruction from Naved, "Guys, now you are on your own!!" What happened after that is better explained by the above verse from the Quran than any human can express.

It was the moment, when for the first time, I cant…

#NetNeutrality

15 August 1995, a day when India celebrated its 48th Independence was another revolutionary day in the history of India when Indians got access to free information all over the world via Internet and within 6 months ten thousand people took access to this free information. Today there are 243 million users who are connected to this network called the Internet.
After all these years of using internet for free have you ever imagined, what would you do if you are charged for sharing your status on Facebook? Whom are you going to complain if Wikipedia took a very long time to open up when you have to complete your project the next day? Where will you go if you are forced to pay for viewing videos on YouTube. What other best alternative will you have when you are not allowed to use Google to search content on the Internet.
That will be a black day in the history of India for every technocrat, every student, every person who has an urge for sharing or gaining information which used to be a…
