Life Is a Piece of Cake !!!!

Cakes .. hmmmm,.. mouth watering for many .. yummy delicious !! aint they ?
Well cakes are the best sweet dish that most of us would love .. Well i love despite the fact am a veggie :) i love cakes .. baked / plum/fruit / cream / butter whatever be it !:)
So we use a cake in for many things . We use that for every happy occasion . We buy a cake for a Birthday , a wedding day , any day say valentines , mothers day , fathers day . or whatever be it !
It is an awesome feel to see the cake lit with candles .. yummy delicious and then cut and share it to the rest of the family members !
Well i happened to read in some forwarded mail that i got about the story of a piece of cake . I have adapted that theme as my articles theme today !
Yes , It is about life .Man in his / her life always face many situations where they feel that they are tested (including me ) We feel dejected .We feel lost
We lack confidence. That is how life goes.
We lose trust in God !But then i have avery very soft yet stern and very positive meenu within me that pops up like a re energizer and tells me that "Hey do not lose faith , trust God and do not worry you will be rewarded for whatever has been done "
But then our life is also like this cake .
What is a cake made of ?
Cooking oil , Raw egg ( eggless if its baked differently) , flour, sugar , icing sugar , some other raw ingredients .
Now can we ever eat these alone . Any one of the ingredients ..
No! How will it taste .. Yuck !!!:) (Well raw egg may be loved by a few .. but otherwise it is not )

So is it with life too . We mix all these in right proportion and then bake that with sincereity and love and passion and then comes a beautiful delicious and yummy cake . So is life. We have many hardships and then we have all these given to us or bestowed on us by God Himself .
A cake with so many ingredients when taken in separately looks and tastes the best .. then think of life how sweet will it be ?
Trust for God will never leave .. He will help . It may take time at times but i am sure always good will happen in the end as long as we are good by heart and soul !

So say what your piece of cake does taste yummy is nt it ??
Enjoy this cake .. for it tastes great with every hardship we experience and every smile we add on to it with love and care !

Adios !

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…

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.
