The Hypocritical films…

Entertainment is becoming a mainstream for today’s generation. Even the previous generation also like to have it. Mostly, I  used to talk of knowledge and human being with my mother. We watch news and discuss about politics and other factors of the economy. One day I was finding one music channel on television but unexpectedly I found some religious channels. A new monk with long beard came to market and we saw devotees listened to his speech very consciously. After sometime that new brand of monk stopped his speech and gave directions to start music. Devotees started dancing and there after the saint also dancing on the big decorated stage. Devotees were very excited to see that dancing monk and some of them were in extra joy. We enjoyed like a comedy show of seeing arrhythmic dance by monk on stage like that. People got mad and danced more forcefully to be captured on camera !?. After all that drama, the program completed and I changed the channel to view the music show. That actual show I wanted to see was ended but we found another show with DJ rocks on the floor. A one man that is DJ in the Bar, dancing and playing like a mad where people were enjoying dance.Though he was dancing in perfect rhythm. The DJ was very famous and people loved him so much. It was an entertaining club night there.

Later, one day I got the news with photo that a new monk had been arrested against the scams and cheating devotees.?! That was really surprising for me that from those two persons,how DJ of the bar is way better than monk.? Both were entertainer but the DJ was a better person. There was no curtain of any religion or cults to cheat or playing a game with someone’s emotions because DJ was doing a job in the right way. On the other side, that hypocrite monk was cheating those uneducated people and settle properties from there. ?!

        Religion is never depend by onstage entertainment, It is self-immolation.
Thank you so much.

The worship of Nature

One day, I had a thought of tribal people who are living as nature in nature and protect it. Actually they love nature and so they can live there with less facilities and comfort. When we love someone we can live with them by less facilities. They do worship of nature’s five elements and understand the value of it.They never changed their living style who lives in nature. Nature has a profound effect on them and it seems to be an offshoot of nature. Though in some areas from last few decades, some had been addicted to alcohol and tobacco. Some organisations doing a very fine job for the tribal people to free from addiction.Government also has taken good initiatives for them to educate and turning them to basics and should do more about it.

Aside from the Tribal people, there are many people who live the same way.There are many people in the world who do not need any idol to worship. They worship the mountains and the river and wake up in the morning to worship the rising sun. Planting trees is worship to them. They do not expect an honour from the human society because they got a very special place and honour by nature.

The one who has found a place in the lap of nature does not need any other honour.

Thank you so much.

Value with Human values

Recently, I watched a movie ‘into the wild’,which is made from a book written by Jon Krakauer. A movie where one guy who had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

Now a day, our presence is counted by position, status and more earning abilities by the end of the month. Our life is lived with those human values which we can’t buy with money.Trust, Love, true friendships, faith, knowledge etc. Some very successful people keep a price tag of every other person in his mind. Money is important but not at the expense of humanity or human values. A one man in our town had only one goal to achieve more luxurious life at any cost. He suffered a lot during that time.He bought expensive bikes and phones and made big house with all facilities. By the time, now there is no value of his presence at any events. He achieved something big in his way but very less are interested to meet him and spend some time. The impression of man created rumours about him and he has no value of his presence without pocket.

A one guy who left everything to have a new life for himself and the other side a guy achieved everything for himself at the cost of human values. I think both ways of living or understanding a life is not proper.Life is all about Togetherness, Responsibilities, Trust, Love and faith in the Nature. 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.

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.

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.

Life is never a self-centred

Recently, I heard about one of my friends who became a fan of very famous and wealthy spiritual Guru. He talked about how that guru had helped him to meet himself for a better life. He used to listen to his recording during days and nights.Suddenly, one day he got divorce with his wife and lived alone for some months. After a year he realised the actual situation of his life. He woke up and went to his ex-wife, asked to marry him for another time. It was done and they are now happily married again. Then, he never follow that wealthy guru and his recordings.

Life is not about what your relations are about for you but how both maintain those relationships. It’s not only for your life, but our life. We are not being depended on our individual brilliancy, it’s about how our close relations support us ,be with us and enjoying a life with us. Our existence is not dependent on us but it is by others and it will be till the death.

Birth and death both are fact horizons of our life. Both are like sunrise and sunset of life. Life is everything about relations those we are from and the other we created.Life is all about those very important relations with mother, father, brothers-sisters, friends etc. The religion or spirituality teaches us how important those valuable relations without living a self-centred life.    

Thank you so much.

Landscape of life..

Whenever I take my pallet and put some colours on it, a green is common there. Landscapes are usually start with sky then trees and ground with water somewhere. Last night I watched a movie that is Flipped(2010) by Rob Reiner. In this movie, there is a small girl was a nature lover. She spends some time by sitting on a top of one tree to see the views of Nature. She used to be there in the sunrise to see the colours of Nature. One day she was sitting on the top of that tree and some men came there to cut down that tree. They requested her to get down from the tree but a girl wasn’t convenient. They tried to convince her for more than ten hours and some people gathered around to see what happens there. Finally the men called to her father to convince and he came there. Her father got up there by ladder and told his daughter that it’s time to get down. She was in tears with one question that why this need to be cut down when I can see everything from here.. !!?. You can see everything from here. A sunrise, sunset, colours of life and a whole landscape??!. After all that father convinced her to come down and she sadly did it.

Painting by Navin R Soni

We all have a tree and we can see the landscape of life from there. We can have a long view from climbing a tree and sitting on a tree branches of the emotions but we actually cut down that to live practically. We should watch those tones which we filled in the landscape of life. Our landscape depends on how we sowing on the ground.

Thank you so much

Swipe the webs of our mind by the Nature

Nature is visible to everyone… But human nature is not visible by everyone. We are living with lot of expectations where we seek to find happiness everyday..  We love the roominess of nature and often goes to the place where we find that. But how about smallness of our mind?, Our nature.!?. In Nature, we never finds an entertainment,  lights, computers, internet and walls there.. our mind is actually covered with these facilities and we habituated with it and is called global World. but is it??!. No, there is a bigger world above all this, where we actually see our existence. We don’t find those corners from the wall in the Nature. We find grounds of green grass with different tones, mountains, number of trees those swinging by the wind, a composed sweet sky with birds that refresh and purify our corners of mind. It is a best medicine to achieve roominess in mind. 

Painting by me..


How many of us thinking about those webs that we created long years ago in our mind.By that, we also creating problems in our present time. Those webs effects another person which he/she can’t understand the situation.Relations or persons are not for the treat from the webs of our mind, it is to give roominess of our mind. 

Thank you so much..
