A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

My morning gaze of Sun slides me into reflective mood of how shrouded we are with the mystery of life. I am shockingly amazed by this very light and energy field. The more I read about Sun, the deeper will be my reverence. I bow my head to this daily wonder so as to remain more pious.

My daily morning ritual starts with prayer to Sun God. In fact Sun is the living wonder right in front of us. Without His rays, no living species would survive and the Earth would freeze into an ice ball.

In the past 15 years, brain science has advanced to phenomenal levels. However, the fact remains is, whatever we discovered is only a tiny fraction of what there is to know about human brain !

Look at this 3 pound mass jelly which consists of 100 billion intricate network of neurons. Each neuron makes synaptic connection (points of contacts where information is shared between neurons) anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000. The permutations and combinations it could make is beyond the elementary particles of known universe. The fuel consumption of oxygen is 20 % of our total intake.

Numerous studies have been made on the cognitive abilities of humans and recent studies indicate that if we learn a second language, the cortical circuits that hold both languages, become active. The prefrontal cortex which is just behind our forehead, the so called CEO of our brain then steps in to choose the right word.

Ever since I decided to write on daily basis to improve my writing skills, I search for triggers to ignite my mind. One such trigger recently came from the heading of a small article in a news magazine which I adopted as a title to this article.

In fact, happiness is the underlying thread in any activity we undertake in this world . Instead of finding true centre of happiness, we ceaselessly slaughter the world for our own pie.

The true wisdom lies in enjoying with our own being without encroaching into other's space. It is what Henry David Thoreau did when he left for Walden bank (United States) to live alone. He wrote about all his experiences in an epic book


As our children grow, we worry too much about their future. Instead of allowing them to flourish on their own, we impose our own ideas on them, thereby condition their minds.

Noted Indian spiritual guru Sadhguru Jaggie Vasudev says that it is time to learn back from children. He further says that think for a moment: Who looks more happy – you or your children ? He believes that children are consultants for happiness.

My daughters when they are taken to evening stroll, they make spirited discussions which they don't do when they are indoors. So take your children on regular walks and listen to their ideas. Robin Sharma in his much acclaimed book  'Who will cry when you Die' echoes the same point: "Children come to us more highly evolved than adults to teach us the lessons we need to learn."

Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.

                                               - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is what Krishna taught about 5000 years ago, Lord Buddha about 3000 years ago and Jesus Christ about 2000 years who said that the Kingdom of Heaven is within you.

Meditation is a state of restful alertness. It is the art of taming the mind without any manipulation. American Cardiologist Herbert Benson, M.D., a pioneer in

Stephen Hawking needs no introduction. This Einstein of our times was born in 1963. When he was just 21 , he contracted with 'motor neurone disease' which only gave him 2 years to live, but that keeps on extending till date  to the utter amazement of medical doctors.

This former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge provided mathematical proof for Big Bang theory.

As far as I remember, it was during 2001, I got a glimpse of his much acclaimed book ' The Universe in a Nutshell' I was terrified to

I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in the company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as Solitude.

                        - Henry David Thoreau

In the hustle and bustle of city life, I need one constant company that is my own solitude. Outer world is a poor substitute when it comes inner serenity. Hours will pass like a blip of second when I take self-reflection. Sometimes, I


Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” 

                       -Robert Louis Stevenson 

When anything crucial is to be undertaken, normally we in India look for an auspicious moment. Some people consult their family astrologer to see if there will be any impediment in the coming days in their lives. Some others remain frenetic regarding movement of their stars rather than their task on hand. Is there really any good day or bad day as we think of ? This question needs a closer look.

Though I am an avid reader for the last 23 years, little I thought to write seriously. But it always remained as one of my pet passions. Though having a blog for the last so many years but I have not posted even a single  article until March 2011 when a friend of mine persuaded Me.   He said that  I should write something on regular basis so that my creative ideas will find a natural expression and those writings may inspire and benefit at least to some people. In my friend's words I should contribute something to society about my insights on life.
