The calculations without transactions…

     Update and up gradation is a natural clock of our life. Even if we are doing nothing in a day we feel something up for once in a day. We feel that things are really going fast and this fastness always pushes us to do better and get better the day after tomorrow. In the update we always miss some wonderful moments of our life from the past. Some college students miss school days, school children miss childhood days, some married miss single days 😀 . 

Photo by me of Mountain Girnar

  At one time I had been to Girnar with some friends. Friends need to shut some places in Girnar for the documentary film. I was there as a much familiar person to Girnar. I was just 20 years old and not much of a busy person that time and even today too. I take those chances to go out in nature and feel better. We reached there in the evening and went to one aashram. Those saints welcomed us and we put our bags in a room. We took dinner and went to meet the chief monk. We had some spiritual talks about Girnar and understood the way of their cult. Suddenly the other monks called the chief for some prayer and they joined to sing at one corner there. Music touches me a lot and the effect without any loudspeakers is always precious. They were singing and we enjoyed some time. There was an older person with us on that trip and we decided to bring one folk singer Nugaa Bhagat of Junagadh. We knew each other for more than a year. We called him after 10:PM and requested him to sing for us that night. He said yes without any hesitations and took him to ashram  by our car. There were no instruments, no Microphone, no lights but only a tone of Nugaa Bhagat. He has his “Ektaro” (one string instrument) with him always. He sang with it there. He sang the whole night till 4 A.M. Four monks and we three sat there to hear those ultimate tones. Girnar was in the background and it was the rainy season. At 5:AM we dropped Nuga Bhagat to his house and returned to Ashram. The most surprising thing was that there were no expectations in his eyes of having some money for singing. He sang continuously like a true devotee and without any expectations in spite of hardly fulfilling needs to the family. ! Even when we firstly reached the ashram I showed expectations in the eyes of some monks. It was a pleasurable night for us. I enjoyed it fully with utmost satisfaction. Those times which had no transactions but without that we got memorable times. Every time in life we are calculating everything. But, I think we should leave some time like that where we forget to calculate and increase our values.. ?! Some day if we are not having an upgrade then nothing will change to our life. Remember that when we are in a difficult face of life then those memories are being souvenirs for us..Those moments when a human upgrade with human values are always calculated differently in our life by Nature.

       Sometimes we should leave our daily calculations and allow Nature to do it for us. It will be invaluable and ultimate.

       Those moments who are calculated can never provide satisfaction where those are without calculations always create satisfaction.  

Thank You So much.

Nature for education and Nature of education…

In every aspect of life, we are learning something new. We educate us in a different role. Sometimes of life, of any subject, art, driving, in a career etc. We can be well educated but not anyone can be fully educated even by the end of life. In every zone there is a different system to study and learn. The most valuable study is from the innocent age when we go to school. Observation is the main key to learn something. Our ancestors observed first and then applied to their routine. By that they started to find solutions to problems. They innovated some invaluable things without any school. There was only one teacher and it was “Nature” . 

Painting by Navin R Soni

From the ages in Hindu sanskriti there has been a system of study from gurukul. ‘Sandipani’ ashram is the best example of it. In those times, students used to come from their home for a few terms and learned by staying there at ashram. They learnt by sitting under the tree and connecting with  soil. It’s amazing where the results were only seen in the eyes of gurus by their marking and not marks. Maybe there was no mathematics like today. They taught about shooting, languages, astronomy, yantras, mantras, tantra, different mathematics, science etc. The conversation of learning and teaching was in the proximity of nature. That’s why there was no burden of getting highest marks and being at top or bottom.Now, education has been changed totally. Air condition buildings, semesters, materials, books, exams, academies etc. Though the education system has a lot of issues, students should utilise their smooth efforts to study. Getting knowledge from study is more important than getting marks. Many students fears a lot during exams and takes stupid step of suicide !? How!? Exams are more important than life?. Even life is not an exam which can give you a certificate. It’s only filled with lessons. We can have great examples where one girl becomes an IAS topper or CA topper who is living in slums! A great respect for those who are studying hard to achieve something in life. Some have no smartphones, no ac classrooms, without study rooms achieved a lot from their learning. Those who have failed in exams and felt like losing a world should take inspiration from them. 

  Students in those times when an education took in gurukul by the imminent nature. There was no disappointment in the process of learning. The spoken words by gurus were first dropped on the leaves of the trees and then to the ears of students. So here it is much different from there. Hope this difference may be reduced by the coming tutors or students to achieve new heights of education. 

Education is not the slave of facilities, it’s a learning process by interchange between nature and human nature for a better tomorrow.

Thank You so much.

Nature has a Sixth Sense… And Nature is a Sixth Sense

Nature and human nature are both synchronised. When I go to any natural place I find myself in a silent conversation with wind first. Wind collide with my ears and I can hear some notations of nature. That feelings are invaluable and we can fill our nature with it. That divine sound tells the story of its presence. 

Painting by me…

Earth is full of beauty wherever you go. Every country has the natural beauty that attract us.  Nature has its own abilities to understand our care, pronounce, love etc. The world is full of diversities with Languages, People, Nature and culture. Some have deep deserts where some countries have sounds of long rivers. Mountains with green forests are common in all countries and that’s the main source of Rivers and lakes. Which languages these Mountains and rivers understand.? I think Nature has the ability to hear us by the sixth sense. Nature can hear, see, tell us by the sixth sense. We also have that sixth sense in our life and it is Nature !! In India I know those many Natural places where a continuous conversation between nature and human nature. The monks in the cavity of Mountain Girnar and Himalayas converse with Nature by Mantras. Those Divine vibrations we can easily feel there. Those knowledgeable of Nature understand the moods of Nature. 

  When I went to a few countries I exchanged my money to local currency. It was very useful to me but not for the beautiful Nature that I saw. A tree or River has no use of those dollars or pounds. It needed a healthy conversation by caring, Loving and pronunciation of ‘vedic-mantras’. by  By the pronunciation of some mantras I felt those divine sounds that I always feel in my Country. 

The circle of nature is always the same and we can feel it everywhere.

“Aoum” Vrikshapurushay Namah…

Thank you so much.

The land of messengers…

   Invention..  every time I heard this word and I feel it’s a common thing which every human being does in someway. Someone is for peace, someone wants to achieve, success, money, etc. 

 It has been my first visit you USA and is fantastic. One word has came in my mind about here is “particular”. Particular about their work, time, rules and regulations..  The country of Inventions invented by Columbus that we all read. But before that, this land was already there.. Still, I have read that some writers don’t believe and accept it. I would say that in the search of Asia, Columbus found one land that eventually named as United States of America. It is a time that decides how one continent or country changes and developed as a superpower. Columbus could never had a thought that this land will be  the centre for inventions, energy, technologies in the world. It is a great responsibility of the country which has the ability to keep the world in right direction .Some of greats has been from here and guided the world in his own way. King Martin Luther, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln are from them. 

 Advance in technology has brought a lot of opportunities for the people across the globe. But somehow people lost their connection between each other to connect their phones via Bluetooth. A successful businessman or investors earns a lot of money through their marketing strategy but those uses are so harmful to premature age. They lose their connection between parents, teachers and elders. An overuse of technology always hurts mankind and it affects the future. People are having a madness of buying an advanced technologies to reduce their efforts in daily life like switch off lights, switch on TVs, play music, etc.  But they forget that when one little child reading a study book in deem lights and their parents switch on the other lights for better vision to them. Where they can find those technologies to create and having an emotions like that??

 But, on the other hand, this country has a lot of diamonds those  love nature, observe the Times, taking great steps to reduce pollution, thinking about wildlife and maintaining green belts. And that combination of people creates a country as a superpower.!! Even government applied some rules for the citizens to maintain it and that’s great !!

 Technologies should reduce the human efforts which cannot be easily done by them.. Otherwise future generations will be like Robots with hearts without use of it.

Thank you so much.

Happy Diwali and prosperous new year to everyone..

Painting of the earth…

When we wake up in the morning we find the lights coming into the room. We see different angles which are paintings of everyday. Lights are the main source to create a painting for artist and nature. Lights giving vision to an artist and and every element being visible. From the beginning of this world when lights started to land on earth, the beautiful painting had been created. Every morning sun always ready to give vision to the world and we can see those colours changing on ground with the different source of lights.

Painting By Navin Soni(Bhuj)


We can see horizontal lines on the sea and land because of the visual capacity of us but actually it’s the difference of those two elements.!? Nature never created lines, its’ invented by the humans. Every tree that firstly grown naturally and where it stopped growing, humans draw the lines!! 

 By the long vision we finds the reflections of the sky in every element and uncleared lines. This circular composition of nature remains forever. It’s always depends on the humans that how we keep a rhythm of that painting.

Thank you so much.

A hidden horizon and calculated sky..

This is the 21st century.The global world is now connected online.Everything is now easily available at your doorstep. Only calmness is not available online, but we need to earn it.

Recently, I went to Mumbai which is a financial capital of India. Mumbai is called the city of dreams and everyday so many people come to achieve their dreams. From the last ten years, I have been observing this city very deeply and now I can read that struggle on the faces. It was said that Mumbai a ‘Running-city’, but now we can feel that it’s short of breath..!?

I had been there in the market area which was very crowded and lots of noise of traffic. Everyone was in a hurry and I could not see the way where we gone through..  I could see the tall buildings in making and couldn’t see the sky behind that !! I found a hidden horizons by that vertical World. After that tiring day, the night was really peaceful.  I went to the seashore and by seeing those horizons I find myself very relaxed. I think that tall buildings are good to see with an excitement but we can see that for a while and we should put down our eyes. where horizons are always gives calmness to us and one can see or feel continuously for a long time.

  Cities should not be known for the tall buildings but from the locations like lakes,greenbelt, gardens, seashores etc. Thank you so much

Fairs of Religious creeds..

A one man walked in the search of truth. Some people followed him. By the time, those people created  group and that main voyager appointed as a leader. A group became larger and they built a building for devotees and group members. Suddenly a Religion converted into religious community or creed. A one man, who walked in search of the truth and apply that in his life was forgotten and the group had been established with useless transactions.?! After the death of that person, his followers made a temple of him and everyone made a different interpretations of his speech.

Painting by Navin R Soni

Today, there are lots of religious communities with temples and shops. It is like a fairs of religious creeds. They have their different rides to feel dizzy and after that ride we should have that balance to be on the ground of reality. I think Religion was never a thing of those useless  transactions, but it’s about to create that coordination between humans and nature. Thank you so much.

Reflections of Our-self …

  We often think to grow our business or have a more proper job for the future. In any case we want to achieve more and more success in life. But for someone who lives in the caves,they don’t need to achieve anything or they achieved something more than everything??!!One day, I went to a deep jungle in Girnar. There was a guide with us and he took us to one amazing place.(kala ghuna). A saint was there and he welcomed us by calling “Aadesh”(Aadi+Ish, a lord from the ages).

Painting by Navin R Soni(Bhuj)

He made a black lemon tea for us and seated. I and our guide talked with him for a few minutes and during that talk my father made a pencil sketch of him. After all, my father gave him that sketch and waited for the reaction. He was really in question about himself and asked us that he looks like it.? There was no mirror in his place and he never looked at the mirror from when he stayed there in that jungle. So he forget how he looked. Father wanted to give his sketch to him and request to keep his sketch. But he calmly said that but how’s this useful to me.? I need to put this somewhere to save. Please keep with you, what will I do of my sketch?We were surprised to see that immediate reactions. Someone who doesn’t need any mirror to see himself, he just reach to the river and observe their reflections there. By the mirror in the home, we can be well prepared, but for the reflections of yourself we should go to the nature and try to observe yourself. Thank you so much.

Sensations of Local world in the shadow of digital world…

Today, we are habituated with digital payment method with using e-wallets, Net banking or credit cards to pay our bills. Everything is very easy for us to apply and accept, but this can not be acceptable for someone. Recently, I heard a real story about an old man from my uncle. He told a very interesting story about that person. That old man used to collect electricity bills and telephone bills with the bill amount from shopkeepers in the market and paid their bills with small profit of 10 Indian Rupees per bill(startup in those years). he used to go with his bicycle and did this work for so many years. He could earn enough by the end of the month and fulfil his needs.

Painting by Navin R Soni


By the time, the uses of digital world, he came to know that everyone used to pay digitally. He found very few shopkeepers then interested to pay their bills like that. Everyone got the way to pay digitally and had some cashback too..!! But what about that old man, who was working hard to earn and satisfied with those ten rupees.. !?. The thing is that, by having that cashback in our bank account, we would not achieve much for our better life, but giving those ten rupees to pay their bills matters more for him and he can survive his life by it. A one man with old age, surviving by this small work, maintain the trust between each other and suddenly the relationship between them cut down. But, still some shopkeepers likes to give him their bills to pay and maintain that relationship of smile !! By connecting to the internet,we lost our connection to the people like him.Thank you so much.

A true guide is the form of Nature

A One day, a spiritual guide talked to their followers about the secrets of Nature. Devotees was listening very carefully and some were tried to write on the same time. In his speech, he also told  about temples and Idol worship. He had clearly an opposite mindset for Idol worship. He pointed to the sky and their followers was seeing his pointer at that time. After long years, that saint died and their devotees prepared a large statue of their saint in the memory of him.!! Every saint or guide never told their followers to make a statue of him/her and have an Idol Worship to them. They only told to follow the Nature, understand the nature and you would definitely get your way..

Guide and Disciple are always one another’s friends.By worship of our guide, we always keeping distance between us. We always think that how we can live like that true guide lived for his life. ?! Actually we only wants to clap his speeches while they talked but we never wants to follow that way in our life. I am talking about the true guide(guru) only, and not for those who are seated on well-furnished sofas and giving a speech on sacrifice of worldly life.??!! .. 

Everyday will be celebrated as “Vyasa Poornima” whenever one would follow the right way.Thank you so much.
