Never worry over a spilt milk !




I didnt know what to do when i heard that i am to get my results soon .... well was waiting anxiously for that result.. well was wanting to write what was really going on in mind and so with other fellow classmates exactly :) but then was this blog ban . So now am back .. a lil better and rather .. very much out of tension .. :) ya all results are out and everyone has fared well. But then it will also be a time when we always see something unexpected . ... But seeing all that we learn one thing . Now actually am using this now cos i saw a statement written by my very good friend .. Dont worry .. now its of no use !Yes how very true .. we keep worrying about what cant be done! It is most important in life that we dont think about what has happened and weep but then think and decide on what is to be done in the future.
Life is like a great game where in we shouldnt keep thinking about what mistakes that we have done in the previous games. Now we need to take these and just plan our next step accordinly not wonder as to why and how we fell.Life in its course teaches us a lot in its own beautiful way !Learning is alife long process .. so it continues . We need to be brave and keep cool whatever happens . By the way why did i talk about this topic??????? This results that where declared has had many a impact on me........ one is the fact that life is a battle which we need face bravely . Just one note to end ..
Do your duty do not expect the reward ... now do always belive that What is coming will come and we will have to face it when it does .. and ya we need to face that with a"muskaan " -Smile ! :)

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…
