Greetings

Once again you’ve passed
Another eventful year.
So short was the last;
Tomorrow is almost here.

It’s time in your life to turn a new page,
And explore new worlds and ideas;
But let’s not forget the time that you’ve spent,
For giving of your love to be with us.

A stolen message

Irony of Life

I wanted to make peace with the world, but then later i found it out that i got to make peace with myself first which will result in enternal peace to the mind and body.

Often its easy to say, and tough to practice. When i say tough to practice essentially it need not be.

Walking is good for health, many of us getup early in the morning and go for a walk. its amazingly simple and we dont find problem with doing it.

Same time, there is a set of us, who hate to get up early, we are preoccupied with late night activities.

I was wondering why is that everybody getting upset with me... And some way the reason is myself. it was just because I am not able to to handle the things properly. The blame game might work at the external world but i can give the same excuse to my conscience.

Irony of these simple basics of life, is that its not that easy some times.
ex: "To be simple is really tough"

A simple rule of "Give a smile and you will get it back" will work. How simple it is!
But I fail miserably to treat people the way i am supposed to.

The result: fights, troubles, anger, lack of peace.

I was upset with the activities around. Things looked like they are leading to wrong ends, and thought i got to act and do something to make it. yes bit seriously I tried hard. And the result is that i made things more worst.

What i need is peace, smiles on face and infinite patience with myself and with the world, For, I am going to be successful in life.

Tsunami

It has been exactly an year since the Tsunami attack on asia. the pathetic stories of the deceased and the survived relatives.. The continuous suffering for the people (latest being death of 40 in a releaf camp in chennai, during a flood relief distribution camp).

I read an article in EENADU, it says that around 27 scientists across the globe, did some R & D and found out the exact source location of the Tsunami.

I feel what ever are the scientific advances the humanity makes is nothing infront of the nature and fate. We can make earth to go bit off from the sun in its orbit.

Life is the artcraft of the GOD. He can choose the way he want. What we could do is to understand the nature and the GOD, the supreme power. And be humble and play our life properly.

May the souls of the Tsunami victims rest in peace.

Khalil Gibran

Hmm, out of all the restlessness I am going through now a days, Its time i should make peace with the world.

I thought of Khalil Gibran, I read some article long ago, in a Alacrity Foundation(chennai)'s magazine (probably for some organizational special occation).

I liked some of his quotes

my favourite poem was Children:

Children


And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of
Children."

And he said:

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,
not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you
with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;

For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that
is stable.

-- Kahlil Gibran




I think the spirit is very important here, Its not just the children but every one we are related with.

We do not own anybody or anything. We just have a unique role to play called "Life"

Probably I should learn something out of it. and keep it in practice. well actually I tried doing it. But Bible says "salt is useless without its saltlessness".

Now I have more aquintance who treat me with some negative note then in a friendlier and understanding manner. But life has to go till GOD decides the end.

PS: a beautiful collection of great works is here one can refer when in need of some solace.

Happiness

Happiness, rather than working hard, is the key to success, according to research published yesterday.

Cheerful people are more likely to try new things and challenge themselves, which reinforces positive emotion and leads to success in work, good relationships and strong health, say psychologists.

The findings suggest that happiness is not a "feel-good" luxury, but is essential to people's well-being. What is more, happiness can also extend across an entire nation, with people in "happy" nations being more likely to help others.

The link between happiness and success was investigated by a team from the University of California Riverside, led by Professor Sonja Lyubomirsky.

First, they analyzed questionnaires that ask people about multiple aspects of their lives. "For example, they show that happy people tend to earn higher incomes," said Lyubomirsky. Having established the link, they wanted to discover the cause.

"Almost always it has been assumed that things that correlate with happiness are the causes of happiness, but it could be just the opposite that those things tend to be caused by happiness," said Professor Ed Diener from the University of Illinois, another author on the paper.

Other studies revealed that having a sunny outlook on life appeared to precede good fortune.

"There was strong evidence that happiness leads people to be more sociable and more generous, more productive at work, to make more money, and to have stronger immune systems," said Lyubomirsky.

Meanwhile, experimental studies showed that an instant injection of high-spirits could generate success. "Inducing a happy effect leads people to make more money in a computer simulation."

The research shows that while success can put a spring in someone's step, people need happiness in the first place to achieve success.

According to the study, around 4 out of 5 people in modern industrialized nations are happy at any one time.

Success was not just about earning lots of money. "We define success as obtaining the things that culture or society values, whether it be friends, close family, money and income, or longevity," said Diener.

However, sorrowful people are not condemned to a life of failure.

"Our work suggests that sad people should try to increase the frequency of positive emotions in their lives by doing things that make them feel happy, even temporarily," said Lyubomirsky, whose research is published in the Psychological Bulletin.

more on positive life

But there is a caveat: your happiness boosters should not be dangerous, like driving fast, or counter-productive, like eating lots of chocolate.

Healthy Teeth

I have been thinking of visiting a doctor, since my teeth problem. The teeth have developed cavities and the gum is getting weak. really it is troubling me especially i eat something like chicken or something else, where i need to eat more before swallowing. food particles are getting accumulated in the gaps between gum and teeth etc.. and hurting me. yesterday I was not able to sleep for atleast 2 hours after my dinner just because of this pain.

The doc at St.John was kind enough to listen to me, and he did some temporary filling.
he cleaned teeth first, and then used something to drill and did something. what i could see now after coming to office is that there is something on my teeth, a friend told me this is called white cement.

Well, this clearly shows i got to take care of my health more. Any negligence will affect me badly.



The weekend was nice for some extent, was boring some times. Sudharshan visit here made my saturday full. sunday Radio City was my company. listened to "Brunch With the Boss" and "Vintage91" etc. Nice songs i come across.. Like "Dont Worry, Be happy", "What ever will be, will be" etc.

But then i cant live myself all the day i think, thats what i observed on sunday. I tried my level best. Did some study too, but not too much of it.

Life

I do not know but my interest towards a happy family grows more.I have been tough with some of the people around me whom i thought are having more deviations. Ofcourse it will get me some negative impression with me.

Life looks amazing to me, with its all problems, issues, fights, affection etc. And interestingly i am becoming more private :-(. So blog is becoming my best friend with which i could talk and share my thoughts.

Just thinking of "The monk who sold his Ferrari". The author says, the common thing with the people who sleep most their life time is that they do not have any work.

The Life is that we do when we are awake, sleep does help get us some sweet dreams and make us ready for the next day work. Hold and wait works well in most of the occation (one that is mentioned in kamasutra too).

Sudharshan





Today i had nice time with sudharshan. Actually i got up early at 6.30 AM (last time i was sleeping when sudharshan landed in BTM, he got wait for around 40 minutes at bus stop). We had lot of discussion on our house construction in the village. We are expected it to get finished as soon as possible (in less than 2 months).

He brought me snaps of the house site.

The only task that i have in mind in my personal life right now is the house construction and making my parents have a relaxed life while having sufficient earnings without much strain. Hope i will be able to make this wish come true as soon as possible.

I was thinking of posting some of my wishes since childhood, here are some of them..

1. I always wanted to fight corruption, at all levels, Do something which provides a comfortable life to the common man.
2. Say No to Dowry, I have observed many of the gals having bad life, because of this social evil.
3. Love Marriage - That was one wish which will not be happening. :-(
4. Have an International media agency, Both press and electronic media.
5. Have an educational system with two ends(One being lexurious for rich students other being with normal facilities for poor merit students, so that the system can servive on its own while delivering a great social responsibility).

6. Have an indoor stadium inside Some reservoir (Like Nagarjuna Konda).

7. Work more on Social evils.

8. To become a poet/author and write something interesting.

9. Make few movies which go into the history of cinema.

10.Do Research on software security and work towards a electronic security system which could help humanity, with cheaper but high quality solutions.


I love to see my parents having good time in the new house.

anything wrong with me?

some times i wonder whatz wrong with me? why nobody is happy with harinath? is there something i could do? or that i am just an odd guy who can not fit with this world?

good beginning

Yes day night i prepared cabbage curry well. i liked it. I am enjoying simple things. like cleaning the house, preparing food etc, reading the "The Monk who sold his Ferrari" and "Men are from mars,women are from venus". I have another pending book "Wings of Fire" by Kalam.

Today's morning was too nice, got up early and went for a walk. I enjoyed the walk in the greenary park infront of the house. took bath early and got ready and was in office by 9.20 AM. very interesting isnt it.

Other change is that i bought a hair oil and applied. It was a suggestion from the saloon boy to get rid of the dandruff, daily shampoo is not helping me to get rid of dandruff.

Expecting the day to be pleasant and hope it has got many surprises for me.

dull days..

last couple of days, i have been facing things which i am not expecting. both professionally and personally. And this is the challenging time for me. Got to prove myself and learn tech stuff and other stuff. I must concentrate on my goals. I want to be a security expert. Have to search for a good professor to guide my PhD on the same topic.

first thing i have to do is the required ground work, which could lead me into some serious player of the domain. learn/refresh the basics. Do the sample implementations. Get grip over the domain to provide innovative solutions to the world. The need for software security will be on the top list, as the world is going towards more automation and more technical. The other way, the problems to this automation are too growing parallelly. So I got to be conscious and work effectively.


There might people, who may want to trouble, but then its the tree which yields well bears the brunt. I need to be more serious about the career path.

defeat

A defeat never means a failure. You may loose war, but still may win the battle.
A defeat never means a failure, it just means that you got to put more effort to win.

aids advt

nice thoughts

ife shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
Instead of loving your enemies, treat your friends a little better.

The best things carried to excess are wrong.
To generalize is to be an idiot.

looks a bad day

things are not happening as expected. day seems to be bad.

dec 1st 2005

i didnt like yesterday night movie, garam masala. probably i was wrong person too see. i prefer to see "mysore malligai" instead of this kind of movies.
