Wake up!

Leave a comment

 If you know your being, there is no question of becoming. All that you could have ever imagined to become you already are.

You are gods who have forgotten who they are. You are emperors who have fallen asleep and are dreaming that they have become beggars. Now beggars are trying to become emperors, in dreams they are making great efforts to become emperors, and all that is needed is to wake up!

Boring Banty Aur Bakwas Babli

2 Comments

What a boring week-end it was. Watched a dumb movie and spent rest of the time in watching TV.
Friday night was very rocking as Antony threw a cocktail party at ABC farms. I had plenty of cocktails and number of tequilas.

Saturday morning turned out to be disastrous as we went to watch Bunty Aur Babli . The movie was one of the dumbest movies I had ever seen. We are overly excited to watch this movie because of Amitabh’s special get up. He played a cop in the movie. But he got much lesser screen time and that too rather boring.
Abhishek Bachhan plays Bunty and Rani Mukharjee plays Babli  in the movie. Both belong to the small villages, and are day dreamers. One day frustrated with their daily boring life they run away from their homes and start cheating people to make money.
The screenplay was very unrealistic. Bunty aur Babli   rob the mob like our  Sachin smashes fours & sixes off the Zimbabwe bowlers. Its like a cakewalk for them. Its like you are playing a computer game and you know all the cheat codes. Then you can go anywhere, shoot anyone, and do anything without bothering about your health meter. Too dumb.
And then there are songs, songs and songs. They pop up anytime and without any context. You can sing a  song while running from the people you have just cheated, you can sing a song while you are with police officer and just anytime you want. Never mind the situations. Aishwarya looked gorgeous in one of the item number and the Rap song of Amitabh is saving grace.  

Our Bunty aur Babli  are so brave that they didn’t hesitate while selling the Taj Mahal to a foreigner, to steal Gold from a airplane even when Babli  is about to deliver a child. Wait.. I can’t resist myself from explaining the whole scene. It goes like this.. Babli  is pregnant but still she is on the Airport to steal some gold. She gives a prank call to Airport officers informing them about a bomb. Now, clever Amitabh calls back on her cell and follows the ring tone. Babli  is confused about what to do, her mobile is ringing, how to hide it? Amitabh  spots her in the crowd by hearing her ring tone. But Babli  finally escapes successfully. Chase doesn’t end here. Babli  starts to feel the pain. So Bunty takes her to the hospital. Amitabh guesses the situation and starts heading towards the hospital. But by the time he reaches Bunty aur Babli  are gone with their child!! Yes, you heard it right, Bunty delivered a child and ran away with it.
For some enthusiastic film freaks, who want to know the name of child.. the name is Pappu.

So, this is it about the movie. The more I’ll discuss about it, more I’ll start to feel dumb.
This time, Yash Raj films totally wasted a golden chance. The film got the nice promotion (Bunty aur Babli  played news readers on NDTV), great start cast (Aishwarya also does a special dance number) and good performances. But still it falls flat on face due to the lack of soulful script. Its like you have all the aces while playing cards but you still lose the game.
So dear folks,  stay home, stay safe, save your money, save your time and never ever even think of watching this movie. (You may recommend it your enemies)

Be a lake

The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. "How does it taste?" the Master asked. "Awful," spat the apprentice.

The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and when the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake."

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the Master asked, "How does it taste?" "Good!" remarked the apprentice. "Do you taste the salt?" asked the Master. "No," said the young man.

The Master sat beside this troubled young man, took his hands, and said,  "The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount we taste the ‘pain’ depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things ….. Stop being a glass. Become a lake!"

  This is one of the transforming processes of life:

If you become aware of something, you can get rid of it very easily.
If you are not aware of it, there is no question of getting rid of it.

The future is only a projection out of the past

Leave a comment

 In the past, only death is the reality not life.
In the future also, only death is the reality not life.
Those who have missed living in the past, automatically to substitute for the gap, start dreaming about the future.
Their future is only a projection out of the past.
Whatever they have missed in the past, they are hoping in the future; and between the two non-existences is the small existent moment which is life.

7 secrets for a successful relationship

Leave a comment

While there are many different ways to tie the love knot, certain common denominators exist among the ranks of the contented. To increase the odds that your relationship will succeed, consider the following strategies:

1. The couple that plays together stays together. Do you find you want to see the same movies and spectator sports? Or is your honey off surfing every weekend while you’re solving complicated equations with your local math club? Does your mate crave vacations in inaccessible snowy mountains while you’re hankering after Caribbean getaways? If you can’t have fun spending your down time together, your relationship has a built-in expiration date.

2. Talk, talk, talk! Sure, the silent heaving sighs of the passionate nocturnal embrace are important, especially in those heated first weeks. But unless you’ve got something to talk about in the long stretches of the daylight hours — or unless you want to spend your entire life naked — you’re not going to see it through.

3. Let’s get physical. Not every encounter has to make the sparks fly and the house burn down — save that for bad South American movies. But you need to make sure the physical side of things works. There has to be a little bit of spice, even in your daily fare.

4. Be on the same page. Do you both view the relationship as a kind of strange experiment, a way-station on the path to true love, or the beginnings of a lifelong dream come true? What matters isn’t so much your answer, but that you choose the same answer.

5. Fight fair. All couples have spots of bad weather, from minor squalls to raging storms. But smart partners don’t allow molehills to become mountains or use their words as weapons. No matter how angry you may be, refrain from attacking your partner’s character or preying on insecurities.

6. Learn the art of making up. Fights are inevitable. But what matters is that both of you know how to drop it once all your frustrations have been vented and then kiss and smooch in between the tears and sloppy "I love you" talk. If necessary, cultivate short-term memory loss.

7. Create a cult of two. Every couple has a special something that keeps things going. Each has some special shared passion — whether it’s amateur astronomy, gourmet cooking or children. Other relationships thrive on shared dislikes — of neighbors and in-laws, of other countries or political systems. Some couples thrive on a master-servant relationship. Others find that the key to their success is that they only see each other on Sundays. Every relationship that works has something unique — it’s own raison d’etre. If you can find that, you can safely ignore all the other rules.
