What do i do?


This time i want to write about a ritual i follow everyday and a problem i have been facing.

I have 'n' numbers of glasses and bowls, big and small. Everyday i drop my riches in them after placing the glasses and bowls in a particular sequence. Of late i have observed a change. The bowl which comes first doesn't seem to get filled. I end up pouring all my earnings in that bowl and still i see it empty. And i m left with nothing to put in the other bowls. I m turning poor everyday...

Why is this happenin
May be somehow my riches are turning invisible after i pour them in the boThis time i want to write about a ritual i follow everyday and a problem i have been facing.

Why is this happening?
  • May be the bowl has a crack. It is not as perfect as i think.
  • May be somehow my riches are turning invisible after i pour them in the bowl.
  • Or, may be the bowl is hungry for more and more.
I don't know what i should be doing in this situation. Should i just remove the bowl and keep it aside? Or should i try to find out what's wrong with this bowl? I am afraid if i don't find the solution to this problem, the other bowls will die of hunger. Been a long time since i dropped something into them.

Drop a little of your earnings into each bowl today. Forget about the bowls for a while. They'd have filled up on their own tomorrow!

I followed your advice partially and feeling better after doing that. I have shuffled the bowls and now i fill them randomly everyday.
Thanks!

Hey Saggi! Drop ur riches into each bowl..not giving special attention and worrying about a particular one..After some time u'll see one bowl getting filled up..now u knw which is ur 'special' bowl..It might not be the one u thought was special to u..We very often falsely think that something is special to us when it actually is not and in the process of struggling to keep that bowl happy..we forget about the rest..in the process becoming poorer..and maybe one among those forgotten bowls is the one that really needs ur attention. Remember..life is full of surprises..and thats what makes it interesting :)

Well said. You are right, sometimes we are so mistaken in identifying what is special for us. I actually did what you have asked me to do and in turn i m getting surprised too.

A poem from childhood...

"Long legged Italy, kicked poor Sicily
In the middle of Mediterranean Sea.
Austria was Hungary
Took a bit of Turkey
Fried it in Japan
Dipped it in Greece...."

I remember only this much. This poem was my first attempt at learning the names of these countries and locating them on the map of the world. And I thought Austria and Australia were same. :-)

It's time to confirm that I was wrong at that point of time, some twenty years back...

Healing and conquering myself, one tiny step at a time

"It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves."
-Edmund Hillary
Two years back, when I had set out on my first trek in the Himalayas, I did not know what I was getting into. It began as a quest, a search for the place that I was dreaming about for the last few years. Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand did turn out to be straight out of my dream and I still cannot believe it. I remember sitting on that large asymmetrical rock for more than an hour, looking at the snow-clad mountains and scribbling in my diary as the cool wind blew in my face and the sun tried its best to warm my fingers. 
Less than a year later, I went back to the mountains and it was then that I realized that I was meant to go back, not once or twice or thrice, I just have to be there every once in a while. May be that recurring dream had a bigger purpose than calling me to the Valley of Flowers. May be someone up there knew that it was just a beginning. And now that it has started, it shall go on till my…

This 'Barfi' is sweetest of all

After a long time comes a movie that makes you laugh and cry at the same time. One cannot stay unmoved by the love and spirit of two people who suffer from hearing and speech impairment and autism. But it doesn't come in the way of identifying their individuality and their likes and dislikes. Neither does it prevent us from empathizing with their feelings.


The story begins with an ailing Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) and a bunch of people sharing their memories of him and reminiscing about the past. We are introduced to the prankster who knew no boundaries when it came to creating trouble. The local policeman (Saurabh Shukla) was one of the main targets of all the pranks whenever he went chasing him. Barfi was too smart to be caught for any of his crimes. Things change when Barfi gets involved in a kidnapping and a bank robbery. The story of Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra), who was kidnapped by Barfi, then unfolds. Barfi and Jhilmil go through a lot of ups and downs. The initial mistrust is ta…
