Fork in the Road

“Robert Frost wrote about “two roads diverg(ing) in a wood” and taking “the one less travelled.” But, in Molly’s case, both roads continued on to equally devastating destinations, even if the specifics were different. Which of the two paths would you choose if one went off a cliff and the other into quicksand?”
Ray Smith

What to do if you come across a fork in the road?

Robert Frost says- take the road less travelled. But how do you know which road is less travelled?

By roughness? or smoothness?

My friend, that’s the fun part of life!

Nothing you can do about the roads since roads are already laid.

But you can take the call.

“This fork in the road happens over a hundred times a day, and it’s the choices that you make that will determine the shape of your life” Liz Murray

Dizzy

“As long as the world is turning and spinning, we’re gonna be dizzy and we’re gonna make mistakes” Mel Brooks

Do you remember your childhood days when you used to spin around and when you stop suddenly, you felt dizzy?

How was that feeling?

You feel the room is spinning and you realised your vision fades and you start searching for some support to steady yourself so that you don’t fall.

Did you ever feel dizzy in an adult’s life?

If so please see your family physician.

Terminology

Acrophobia vs Vertigo vs Dizziness

Acrophobia is an extreme fear of heights.

Vertigo is an illusion or hallucination of movements. Here the sensation of imbalance makes the person sway. In vertigo, you feel as if you or your surroundings are moving.

Vertigo – is caused by inner ear problems.

Dizziness is a feeling of being off-balance and you find it difficult to move.

Dizziness is caused by many conditions which include excess alcohol intake, dehydration, low blood sugar, motion sickness, head injuries or medications.

Life in colour-Gray

Electric Control Panel board

“The gray area, the place between black and white – That’s the place where life happens” Justin Timberlake

I wonder all the time Why ‘American English’ conflicts with ‘British English’ though mother tongue is the same for these two countries.

I guess many like me get confused from time to time between American and British English usage.

Being ruled by British people for more than 300 years, naturally, I am partial to British English.

Which is correct?

Gray or Grey?

Both are correct. Gray is American English and Grey is British English.

Grey is said to be a neutral colour between black and white.

Grey was said to be a highly fashionable colour in the 18th century.

Grey can be warm grey or cool grey.

What about human’s Grey Matter?

The grey matter in the humans nervous system enables humans to control movements, memory and emotions.

So next time you are angry with your loved ones check your grey matter first!😂😂

Grey matter damage is permanent so don’t take chances.

Take care, my friend.

Water water everywhere 🏄

“Some people get killed by water. Some die from dehydration.” Mokokoma Mokhonoana

These days are rainy days in South India, especially in the State of Tamil Nadu

You find water everywhere.

Rivers are overflowing. 

Water reservoirs are full.

Low lying areas are inundated.

City roads are flooded. 

Schools are closed.

As areas got flooded water started entering the house as an unwelcome guest.

rain water entering the house

These days I wonder how the roofless manage?

Yet we don’t hesitate to complain about each and everything around us.

“Unless you truly feel the pain and sufferings of the people and living beings in flood, famine, poverty, disease, exploitation, and hunger – you cannot grow spiritually, scientifically, politically, and socially.”
Amit Ray

Do you love rain?

I love rains but not that much when it causes flooding.

In floods, suffering is more.

But why floods? Why are these kinds of calamities happening o a regular basis?

My friend Mother Nature is telling ‘enough is enough’

It’s unto us to take corrective measures.

“Floods are acts of God, but flood losses are largely acts of man”  Gilbert F White

Sunday Wisdom

What is a man supposed to do

“When a man can listen to a woman’s feelings without angry and frustrated, he gives her an incredible gift. He makes it safe for her to express herself. The more she is able to express herself, the more she feel heard and understood, and the more she is able to give the man the loving trust, acceptance, appreciation, admiration, approval and encouragement that he needs” John Gray

Do you listen to your woman patiently, my friend?

Remember that you are the beneficiary if you listen and understand her.

Take care, my friend.

One image one story

One image one story

What do you see in the above image?

Can you guess?

You may or may not.

Yet a picture can convey 1000 thoughts.

Let me tell

The posture of this person gives you a hint that he is a senior citizen.

He is seen sitting on a pavement that gives an idea of his status in the (so-called) civilized society.

The clothes he is wearing tells of his financial status.

The blue bag( empty)on which he is resting tells his only richness.

The way he has covered his entire face with a semitransparent plastic mask tells about his health status.

A plaster bandage on the left side of his forehead tells that he must have suffered some face injury.

If you closely observe, there is a small opening in his face mask at nose, telling that he is breathing.

His hands are clenched and kept on his lap indicates his helplessness or frustration or maybe he is feeling cold due to outside weather.

He is sitting next to a closed shutter indicates the absence of a roof over his head.

He appears to be unwelcome.

He is all alone.

And he seems to be abandoned.

And  the same old story all over the world.

Who is responsible?

Can you blame God if you are a believer in God?

I don’t know.

The time at which the click taken was approximately 8.00 pm.

This is the story of this person

Poor, abandoned, homeless with health problems.

This person is part of the society at large which lacks sympathy, empathy or compassion.

For the rest of the people, it’s another day in paradise!

Moral of the story– Help the homeless if you can afford.

                                                        ***    End of the story  ***

“You can spend money on new housing for poor people and the homeless, or you can spend it on a football stadium or a golf course” Jello Biafra

The World still cares for you if only…

Nobody cares for you unless you are beautiful, rich, popular or dead”  unknown

Puja Flowers

puja flowers

“When you turn your worries into worship, God will turn your battles into blessings” Unknown

Flowers and their role in World religions is interesting to know.

I am limiting my topic to Hinduism.

Puja and Prarthana

There can be some confusion regarding these two words.

Puja is worshipping God in the form of offering along with chanting slokas.

Prarthana is Prayer or Seeking.

We request God with a feeling of reverence to fulfil our wishes.

What is Puja (Pooja)?

The word Puja in Sanskrit means ‘Worship’

Puja is a ritual in honour of Gods, performed by Hindus.

Puja is performed at home or in temples.

How is Puja performed?

Puja is a loving offer of light, flowers, water or food to the Divine.

In its simplest form Puja constitutes an offering of flowers or fruits to an image of God.

Flowers are offered since they are considered to be the universal symbol of Love and peace.

In Hinduism God doesn’t demand anything costly from his devotes.

In Bhagavad-Gita Lord Krishna says ” If one offers me a drop of water, a blade of grass or a fragrant flower with LOVE AND DEVOTION it pleases me”

The Reasons why flowers are offered to God

Which Flowers are offered to Hindu Gods and Goddesses?

Jasmine, Marigold, Lotus, Parijata (Night flowering coral jasmine), Red hibiscus, roses, Datura, Palash, Tulsi, Crown flower, Red Oleander.

Doodling

Doodling

“Happiness is doodling” unknown

I don’t make out what the child was trying to convey in the image above.

I guess it’s a tram with people and a signal indicator in the front.

Since ‘shapes’ is written, I think it’s about various shapes.

Whatever it may be, it’s said doodling enhances memory, better concentration may be a stress buster.

Many said it is another form of creativity.

But the definition of doodling confuses me.

What is doodling?

“To draw pictures or patterns while thinking about something else or when you are bored”  Cambridge Dictionary

In other words, one is doing doodling while occupied with something else including boring!

Now, my question is, Which one the person is concentrating on?

The doodles or the job the person is attending?

I am not sure about the scientific explanations of the benefits of doodling but I feel that it diverts you from the present occupation.

Is it important?

“Why is it great to create? Because it’s enjoyable. It’s fun making stuff—you start with nothing and end up with something else. Being creative opens up new ideas, exercises our brain, and makes us feel good” John Burgerman

Is doodling only for kids?

Not necessarily.

Adults too can indulge.

You would have noticed many adults doodling when paper and pen are available during a long telephonic conversation.

Notable doodlers include Alexander Pushkin, John Keats and Rabindranath Tagore.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
