This And That

Now a days  my blog is being read by more people than before but comments are less than before...so may be i am getting lot of new readers..and i would request them to drop some reaction..it would make me happy..

Lately i have been reading a lot, watching lot of movies too, so much so that I am not able to write anything about them.isnt it a contradiction? but this is happening to me..presently i am reading Lucknowi boy..Vinod mehta, and this time I would certainly write a review.

I Believe in infinithism and I read the book seriously and their view point is always new and positive.Yesterday i met one of their representative and came to know that they run a course of some 10-15 sessions where they teach about many things.how to live your life with purpose and be successful and happy. As we see in todays life, people neither have good relationships nor good health, just earn a lot.So they bring that balance in life...so far so good...But when I knew the fee for the course i was surprised..33800/...I thought of it as exhorbitant whatever excuse he gave me..No wonder that more and more big people are attending him, because only they can afford to.To me if one says that one wants to spread good thoughts, values and culture in today's generation..its a very noble thought and profession, and one should try to do it in such a way that the benefit can reach to many and specially to normal ,ordinary people..Asking for a high fee is like insulating it from the normal people, and the majority is not getting any benefit..its only selected few.....

what do you think?

I think it is better to learn by experience and contemplation, than to go to 'Life skills' classes. The learning might be slow, but it will be ingrained deep in our minds and we will not forget them.

This is my return visit to your site. Your post is very timely. Actually as you said it is essential that ordinary people must be given training in maintaining good relations.

True Renuji..these days conducting workshops is a lucrative field..most of them are utter rubbish..and I can totally relate to reading more and writing less...

SG said...

Pure fraud. I know about these courses. They charge a lot of money. Ask us what is wrong us. And then tell us what is wrong with us.

sm said...

yes too much fee
with that 33800 just feed the poor or sponsor the education of poor child and then one does not need any course.

Renu said...

RajeshK K: true, but their magaazine is really exemplary its wrth a read, thats why I was feeling confused.

Usha Menon:..yes they need it more than those who are already having everything..
and Thanks for the visit:)

My Space..Hey Aarti mere naam se ji hata do:)..once people start taking big money I loose faith in them..

SG:I always thought of them as good people but this stance made me think about them..

sm: exactly, if they really want to bring a change, they must make it affordable, so that more and more people can benefit..

I am one of those reading without leaving comments. Always in a hurry these days... moving from one coast to the other, work related travel.. but yours is one of the few blogs I still read.

Tejaswi said...

you are right

Rahul Aggarwal said...

our very birth was without a purpose .. we all are byproducts of a chemical equation called love ..

lord buddha never had a purpose in life .. he left everything and went in exile to discover the meaning of his life ...

just my take on it ... no offense against the author!

Renu said...

uptake:you are a mystery to me but a very valued friend too..and I love to see your reaction here...

Tejaswi: Thanks:)

Rahul Aggarwal: good to see you after a long time..been busy?

Even I don't like to go to such workshops. I feel we have all the answers within us if only we would care to look within. We are not like the westerners who feel blessed to have somebody point out the very thing that is just there staring at them. It might be useful for them and fees also would be suitable for them.
We have such excellent books which is part and parcel of our lives just going through them would give us enough knowledge to overcome/ understand all our doubts.
Now that is a business, and if they are able to get people who can come and benefit from their workshop, let them, why should we hold a grudge against their livelihood. We neither need it nor can we afford it, and we can say that to them.

Rachit Aggarwal said...

Quite agree. But generally fees for such courses are not directly paid by the people but their company and this a business model they are cashing on.

I like the statement "people neither have good relationships nor good health, just earn a lot."

Please don't mind but I want you to read and review one of my similar posts, the joy of living in small cities,

Renu said...

rama: very true..I am not holding a grudge, but I branding yourself a do gooder and someone who wants to show the path and all that rankled me..

Rachit Aggarwal:I think this tendency of hiking the price anywhere, just because instead of individual company is paying is also bad, but it happens in all spheres of life..

going to read your post now..

Neha said...

In this space after ages and glad to be here again :)

Agree with you on spreading goodness with the intent of making it reach the maximum people. However, most prefer to make a living out of it, rather than do good. Our self-proclaimed sadhus and babas are a perfect example!

Renu said...

Neha: good to see you after a long time...I dont expect anything from sadhus and babas but here I felt different..
