The Nature of the wealth……

         We can say that most of the questions are of the Money or for the money in the World. Whether it has been created or creating. I think it’s always having questions.. and creating more questions.. Depends on person.. Though everyone is beggar in front of god, but the way or the attitude towards god has differences.

       The value of Money has decreased human-values.Not totally, but we can say somehow. In this time of pandemic during lockdown, we went to a market to buy some groceries. I was packed into my car and my wife went to the store. The poor lady with the child came close to our car-window and was begging closely. She knew that at this time we all should maintain social distancing but She didn’t follow that knowingly and by that we may be forced to give them rupees.. She was asking to have rupees to buy one biscuit packet.. Honestly, I refused to give rupees because I  know that two social groups serve food to needy people at their risk and that lady and her family is one of them. After sometime she went to the other car and the other man gave her 10 rupees. She acted like she was going to buy biscuit packets in front of that man. That man left from there and the lady sat without buying anything from the store. She smiled at me for how she fooled that other man! I was confused about what she was smiling at me ?!!   Thus, many people usually fool the other people by acquiring more  rupees than actual cost. Those who do scams for earning, who cheat someone to earn and many others those earning have dissatisfaction  lives . One dishonest billionaire who comes out from the expensive car who puts the foot directly on the footpath is poor in front of that man, who is earning on that footpath by realising true notes of music.

One day, I went to meet my friend who is living in my town.During some talks I came to know that there was a funeral in his last day. It was strange when I heard the sound of quarrelling from that house, when mother died and son shouting at his father to get the   ornaments of his mother… !! How ashamed… ??!! Why don’t’ feel ashamed of themselves.?!  .               

How the way the society that we called low to high where those some has a poison called wealth circling in the minds. I am getting disappointed when I see one son only connect to his father for the Legacy, the parents who compare their children to others’ for earning an extra money, brother who earns little less than another one in a joint family has less respected life,  one girl or boy only marry for the wealth! And everyone who trampled their relations by earnings. It doesn’t mean that the money is not important to live but it is one pillar to roll our life with sufficient applications.

       The wealth that is earned or gained by the wrong ways never gives happiness. It seems like a hue of affluence but it is actually the rust on wealth…

Thank you so much..

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 😀 .

  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.

The Nature of Classification

Life is formed by people. Gatherings are always precious whether it’s a common man or so called celebrities, but not for these days. I surprise when people are divided into class by their income. In the exchange  method early in the beginning of transactions, they had less different categories.By the time, it has been smoothly categorised. Now by income, we have been called poor, lower class, middle class, upper class or Rich. When currencies came into transactions, the importance of exchanges reduced. Those emotions of giving are nowhere and the joy of exchange was there. Then Land, homes, grains have been measured by money. In the modern era of transactions it was only for the requirements  but after that it has taken the form of power and position.

Middle class… When I heard this word from the people, it produced some insulting vibrations…Why should we not be able to forget this class system and go for the better society scenario for future generations? I belonged to a family that had average income years ago, now we have some more income to live with more facilitated life. I know many families who are working hard to manage their monthly expenses. In every situation of disaster the most suffering people are from there. Think about one common man who earns 25,000 INR with honesty. Rarely, he takes a chance to enjoy with his family and he never gets concerns, appreciations from his work by the people where artists, musicians, sportsperson, actors get. There are many families like this living in metro cities. In any situation of pandemic like this, they suffer a lot to fulfil their requirements. These are the people who are boosting the economy of the country when they have to struggle for their own economy. They become shareholders of the multinational industries and pay taxes to the government. They know their family responsibility and have one to two kids, where those people have six to eight kids because of no education and will not be able to provide education to their children. It’s not on the basis of religion but about society. Mostly, those people get concerns from government, media, organisations for the donations. The man who is honest for his work, most of them are addiction free, getting less concern for the help where in  every situation poor people get help from organisations, government funds or by the rich people. I think communism  should be applied on this route. If we forget these things in socialism of different classes then a lot of changes will be in concern. This time is for those who have been able to earn more in recent years and know or remember those families who sicks some help. It’s all about knowing this difficult time and by concern to others we will have a responsible society in future. 

The class is never dependent on earnings, it depends on the nature of an individual.

Thank You So much
