We live in a world that teaches us many a thing right from the time of our birth. This world is beautiful, good and lovely place to be in. At the same time it is surely treacherous, dangerous and difficult place to be in too. Why because the human relations, the bond is never the same for the heart and thought of a man (also a woman, man is a generalized statement). So imagine when we live amidst different – individuals with very different graphs in thoughts and heart, there surely will be bitter and sweet moments to cherish. Now when people have sweet moments to cherish; they love to share the happiness with others and enjoy the moment .But what happens when the heart is heavy, hurt and bad? Not all of us share or speak it out, it could be for anything say miscommunication, misunderstanding, fear some loss, some bad memory of the past etc. Some cry but how long and when in front of others they prefer not to share their state. But this really kills the joy of living.

Speak out your heart to some one at least, one person or a thing. this is life and living this journey every moment we need to lighten up our hearts and thoughts so that life doesn’t get heavy to live , it remains very easy to carry both our memories within.

I don’t know why I need to talk or write on this, but then this is a very essential thing one needs to know, or practice. Share all your thoughts , share your heart not necessarily with people or so but at least just let that out of ones heart ., like say as stories , poems , letters , diary and what not . Talk out to the walls, the trees and the stars to lighten up your heart.
This helps in being more clear , yet sometimes yes when the problems are seemingly more strong , more convincing ( why I say problems are convincing – it’s if problems or challenges we face tend to ascertain in us that we cant come out of it any time!) then we tend to feel so lost and tired of this very interesting journey.

Never keep things within yourself. if you feel that it s something that cant be shared to anyone -even friends(best ones) or parents or sisters or brothers at least share or talk out to the walls , the trees , flowers , if you trust God then to him , pen , paint, or sing and dance … this really works .... and if you are lucky and have a pet then even better!
Well am I not right?
Hope this post did help you feel a lil light at heart!
Take care
See ya …

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.
