Celestine Prophecy..James redfield

This was the book I reading, it tells you a lot what is said in our culture like waves, current passing thru people or like yoga, where if one concentrates, one can channelise the energy into a powerful tool which can do lot many things.And one's behaviour is decided  equally by environment and understanding.

The story is about eleven insights in manuscript found in a church and church people dont want them to be known, so they sabotage every effort from the scientists and explorers to read them, and understand them. Church thinks that their autonomy will be affected, if people start believing the insights.

The book tells us that there are no coincidences in life, they are always insights, its upto us to understand, where they want to take us or what they want to tell us.Only aware people recognise them.

The best thing i liked is that they say that  if we talk to a plant and take care personally, it grows better and its fruits are more nutritious than others..think if a little love and care can do this to a plant what about humans?

The insights explain everything of human behaviour and natural phenomenas..interesting ideas, but would have been better if they were incorporated in an interesting story, its a very dry read and heavy too.

So for light reading I read SKY IS FALLING and ARE YOU AFRAID OF DARK...by Sydney Sheldon, both in his signature style.and better. Earlier I stopped reading him when I found that there were more intimate explicit descriptions than story, but these two are totally different, full of continuous happenings and no sleaze.

Dreams for everyone but...

We always dream for a good education, good spouse, good job, big house, bigger car, children's education and  marriage, their future, our retirement...and always plan for everything, but have you heard anybody planning  about the upkeep of his/her parents in old age? And thats the reason  that many children, though loving and good get fed up of their parents..yes you are reading right..I see many people getting irritated with their parents and secretly wishing  them away and then living in guilt. Most of the people always thing about the problem, but if they think about the solution may be they can get it.
Now when the life expectancy is increasing and sometimes one has to look after the parents till one is old oneself, or we can say for long time its not unusual to get fed up..because when children take long time in getting settled or getting jobs, parents also ridicule them, scold them and call names..but since they are parents they dont offend anyone, but children disrespecting their parents offend many's sensibilities because our society favours the old.and it is not good also..
So what is the solution.....
First thing as soon as we start earning we must ear mark a small amount aside every month for the parents, it will come handy to those who feel financially constrained.
Get your parents health insurance at an early age, its very helpful.
Whether you live with them or not, provide them with all the basic requirements..healthy fresh food, neat clothes to wear and a safe roof over their head,, but draw a line, dont let them interfere with your life.You live your life they way you want to , and then you will never get frustrated with parents.
Spend some time (regularly)with them.talking about something which is pleasant to them or they like..rest of the time you spend as you like .
If you have  parents who are semi invalid,.and you need to go out and have a good social life,then keep a help with them, you may economise somewhere else but  not here.and enjoy without a guilt..
Never ever be disrespectful to them or let your spouse be....
If they are capable, encourage them to have their own circle and help them in maintaining that, dont grudge it..

Last but not the least.....its our duty and a great debt of our parents and we must not hesitate in repaying that..its upto us whether we make it a burden or joy.

OH MY GOD

This movie has taken a totally new viewpoint and thats the USP here andAkshay totally shines as Krishna,The God. Movie is short and crisp and it  tries to preach people about working hard and be aware of those god man and woman who run religion like business.
liked it.

EK THA TIGER
Its like a James bond in Hindi..no..I think its better than that. Very nice movie with beautiful locations. Though initial chase reminds me of Bourne Identity and later on fights remind me of some other English movies, but everything is filmed very nicely and its a delight to watch.
Loved it.

Cocktail
Usual menage troi..these situations are bound to arrive with modern permissive society, and many more hearts will be broken..Saif and Deepika live together , saif considers her friend, but she falls in love. Saif loves Diana penty....I didnt like Diana penty at all, found to be the weak point here..very boring movie..
hated it.

Bol Bacchan
:First Rohit shetty movie which is so boring, though all his movies have slapstick comedy, but make some sense...Abhishek is looking ugly and acts horribly. Prachi desai is looking sweet.
Boring

Rowdy Rathore
A very 70's type movie with violent villains, lawless village and all, but treated with comic style, it works.and Akshay and Sonakshi  both look good and are a treat to watch.
Liked it.

Never


“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” 

Today as soon as I opened my inbox, I saw this quote sent by one of my good friend...This is a good quote for moral boosting,but I find it practically very impossible to follow...There are certain relationships in life , where whatever you do for them, you will always be an option only for them, never a priority..but you yourself are so bound by your love or we can call it ..mayamoh in Hindi...that they will always remain a priority to you.....

and we cant change that too, because changing the status quo will mean destroying that relationship, because relationships which are acquired, not blood related are very fragile..,They may cement over long time, but only if both the sides realise their importance, otherwise they remain just like that..a facade..which is if well maintained, life is smooth......otherwise full of friction and bitterness.....

so we cant be prudent here, instead it pays to be emotional:)....and I always believe that god has the best bank..where whatever you deposit you get back multiplied many times..the only thing is you may not get from the same person or area, it may be some other source, but you are nevr left alone...

and so I will say make anyone your priority, even if you are only a option to them, if it makes you happy, never feel that you are being taken for granted..or why nobody acknowledges the good done by you.,because people are very small and inconsequential, why bother about their acknowledgement, God always notices everything and his computer is very accurate...his ways are strange ,but best...

Person first

sometimes I wonder why I cant separate any one's professional life from personal one.Like I cant appreciate anyone professionally unless I feel that he/she is a good human being with good character. And once someone goes down that way, nothing can redeem him/her in my eyes. In that way all my reviews of actors are biased, because I always see the person first than work.

And the same happens to me in my all relationships.everybody has to have that humanity to get my love respect, otherwise however i may want but I cant..even if someone may care for me a lot....what is the problem with me?..even in blogging world, I have to like the person in that blogger to like the content or atleast somewhere their persona affects me..

is it the same with everybody or me only?

KARVACHAUTH

Today is karvachauth.. a day of pampering for woman..This is one day when I like to buy lots of red bangles and wear them.Most of the women get lot of gifts.from husband, mother, MIL and if old enough like me, from DIL too...all depends on what type of family members you have:)..That way I am very lucky, Even if by mistake I say that I like something or I want something, be it my husband or my DIL or my son or daughter, they will get it, so for fear of having too many things, I never show my liking for anything when I do window shopping...
I love doing all things associated with festivals and nevr question why me, why not husband, because it makes me feel special. I celebrate my womanhood, instead of trying to change a man into woman and myself trying to be a man.No i am happy as a woman..I love getting attention from my hubby and me making special food for him.

May The Sindoor,
Testify Your Prayers,
The Mangal Sutra Reminds You Of,
The Promises That Binds You.both
And The Color Of Mehndi,
Prove The Depth Of Your Love.to each other
On This Blessed Night,
May The Jingling Of Churis,
Fill Your Life With Good Luck,
The Twinkling Of Payal,
Announce Your LoveFor Him ,and his for you

May The Moon Light,
Flood Your Life With,
Happiness & Joy,
Peace & Harmony.
Happy Karwa Chauth..!!
