I sat wondering at my own thoughts .. well i was down again .. battery low !!! yes my mental battery had again gone down with too much of thoughts meandering my mind restlessly. 

Well i was stressed with continuous work and no break types.... i wanted to spend time to work on my quizzing , start my violin again and yes reading ... but all these was in pending , or was just on a switch mode - on /off. 

So many instances just had gushed in my mind again when i was stressed out. And they turned bad as i was already drained and this totally sucked out my enthusiasm ... 

Old memories .. wouldn't be happy to use the term ' memories' as they really are not good to be held but i still wouldn't want it to be deleted from my brain. i would surely love the 'pensive' which Dumbledore used but not throw them away as i  think past can be hidden back but surely shouldn't be dumped as it is a boost in most situations to do better....

While i sat thinking about how i can lead my life  the way i want , i realized that there is nothing that can stop one from  reaching one's dream.. may be not all of us will become successful immediately or easily but for sure one will live one's dream if we passionately follow it- no chase it and yes believe we can reach it . 

I happened to read about a chap who has no arms nor legs at all. Seeing him i realize we have so much to reach and just if we think we lack this and that we will never make it , if we don't and we just work towards our goals - what ever be it , we will be the top of the heap! 

Looks don't matter really , it is only the way one carries oneself . had it been only looks then i am sure i would have never made it to marketing !!! 

I know i should be able to reach my dreams  only one thing i need to do is make my mind believe in me .

i am sure the same works for others too .. 

wishing you a great and happy Ugadhi/ Gudi Padwa .. and what not :) simple terms Happy new year * ( Regional one yaar) 

I am signing off yet again but this time i am charged even if you are or not after reading this prattle.... 

take care 

good night

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.
