Love Lost #AtoZBlogging

L

“We can’t  keep you, mother.” Said Ian to Anna. “It’s okay. I will see where I can park myself for the rest of my life.” said Anna.

When children selfishly think about “their family”, they do not include the parents. To such children, I wish Karma comes and bites in the ass. I saw my father take care  of the elders in the extended family; hence his kids are motivated and eager to make life better for him.

Do not trouble and piss off an elderly, their positive vibes only make the house loved and welcoming.

Old age homes, SUCK.

Knight-ly yours #AtoZBlogging

k

All my life men like you’ve sneered at me, and all my life I’ve been knocking men like you into the dust.―Brienne to Jaime Lannister

This only surviving child of Lord Selwyn Tarth ofEvenfall Hall. Marriage alluded her because of her unusually tall and muscular appearance. She is a martial art expert and an Oathkeeper to Lady Catelyn Stark.

She asks to be named to his Kingsguard as a reward. Renly Baratheon grants her request despite her gender and consequent lack of knighthood.

I always wondered why she never knighted. Patriarchy’s venomous teeth hissed the skilled Brienne’s feet.

Jap-Tap-Sanjam #AtoZChallenge

j

My affinity towards Sikhisim also grew because my Granny was a true believer in Sikhi [Constant learning].

Here is a lesson from Evening prayer from Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ|| Rehras Sahib

Jap – remembrance

Tap- penance

Sanjam – Forbearance

These words mean:

I have neither acted on the principles of Jap, Tap and Sanjam, nor have followed the teachings of the guru O God; my deeds are unbecoming; I have sought Your sanctuary; please save my honor.

Incense #AtoZChallenge

i

“Madam take these agarbattis as a sample. I am sure you will come back asking for more.” said the shopkeeper while selling me an Incense stick holder.

There is something very rewarding and pleasing about these sticks. I light three everyday. One at the Mandir, one in the living room and one in a little stand outside our  main gate.

I have  learnt a lot from them lately:

  • Patience
  • Spreading the joy
  • Fulfilled life, and
  • Mortal body that shall turn to ash.

Count your blessings before your time is up and thank the Almighty for the gifts you receive everyday.

Hymns and Prayer #AtoZChallenge

h

I put a CD named “Divine Chants of India” everyday in the morning. It has becomes a daily ritual. The house feels warm and fulfilled with prayer offerings to Lord Ganesha, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.

Today I missed doing it somehow and the cook said, “Didi, I am not feeling too well today.” “All is okay? You need any medicine?” I asked. She replied, “I didn’t hear the CD today, it is causing me a lot of anxiety. Please put it when you get time.”

The incident reminded me that faith knows no religion and music knows none either.

Ganga in an Auto #AtoZBlogging

g

Lady Ganga was sitting all happy and proud in the Kamandal of Brahmaji. Brahmaji gave a very tough method of allowing Lady Ganga on Earth. Bhagirathiji prayed to Lord Shiva who then tied Ganga in his hair locks and gradually released for mankind’s salvation.

Today we went to a temple nearby, the kind and learned auto uncle shared some mythological stories with us. A few lines stayed with me:

Everyone takes Lors Ram’s name, no  one talks about Dashrath.

Without him, Ram would not have been possible.

Praised be those who take his name and may they get the heavens.

First of Many #AtoZBlogging

Clip-art-house

They earned quiet a bit, but still every month end they struggled to  meet the ends. This  month she got a small bonus and he got an incentive as well. Their happiness was at the peak because they could see the prospect of buying their first Air Conditioner.

They went to the nearest  shop and naively asked simple questions. It was a big purchase and they wanted to be sure of doing it all right.

After 4 years of marriage,  it is lovely to have firsts like these. They instill your faith.

The days were more bearable and nights, more cozy.
