This is the way of life

I was watching a debate program about the most omnipresent discomfort state of mind in everyone "Stress". Apart from most of the non-sense marketed methodologies people now following to get rid of it (I do not want to mention those as I do not want to harm them as I am totally against those quack methodologies), I saw a special mark in the course of the program towards the end and I really wanted to share that with all of my fellow bloggers and visitors. May be I am sharing this just because of the point I noted is what I call "This is the way of life" and which I follow.

We can just ignore discussing the topic when it doesn't possess any aftereffect. But usually this is not the case in reality. Say, for an instance, if a person is stressed out in his office, he/she brings it back to home or if he/she is stressed out in his home, he/she brings it to office and aftereffects happen, which sometimes (Ahem ahem, most of the times) has its devastating effect. I call it as not the way of life. My ideologies here may differ from most of the spectators here as I usually do not follow what I have paraphrased during the start of this paragraph.

Technically speaking, people are quoted to be in stress when they are question marked (either by themselves (mind voice and yes..!) or by a peer) about their ability to complete a task. Let the task be a personal or a professional one.

Whatever the task be, getting into core of the problem and standing a bit away to view it in a global stand point to get an idea of the solution makes the difference of "being-in-stress" and "out-of-stress".

At the same time I do not say that a common man can be without stress at all but I wanted share my idea to reduce it. 

I also believe that these statements will be a trash until a person walks through it and practice it. I usually write a lot when I am writing a philosophical note but I hope I kept it quite short as the solution which I have/follow is simple and straight forward.

நம் சமூகம்..!

மாயத் தோற்றத்தை அப்படியே ஏற்றுக்கொண்டு, நாம் வாழும் சமூகத்தின் சூழ்ச்சியை அறியாமல் இவ்வுலகத்தின் சுழற்சியில் சிக்கிக்கொண்டு, நாள்தோறும் வெறும் உழைப்பை மட்டும் கொடுத்துவிட்டு, தனக்கு வரவேண்டியவைகளில் பத்தில் ஒரு பங்கிற்கும் விட குறைவாக வாங்கிக்கொண்டு, அரைகுறையாக தனது சராசரி வாழ்க்கைப் பயணத்தைத் தொடரும் என் சக தோழனுக்கும் தோழிக்கும் ஒரு சின்ன பரிசும் எச்சரிக்கையும்.

"இவ்வுலகம் இன்னும் தழைக்க சிறகுகள் ஒடிந்தும் நீ பெரும்பாடு படுவதை நிறுத்தவில்லை - ஆகையால் உன்னைத் தியாகி என்பேன்

நீ ஈட்டித்தந்த தொகையில் கடலளவு கொடுத்து கடுகளவு எடுத்துக்கொண்டு இன்னும் உழைக்கிறாய் - ஆகையால் உன்னை வள்ளல் என்பேன்

ஆயிரம் இடையூறு வந்தாலும் தன் மக்கள் மகிழ்ந்திட பொன்முறுவல் கொண்டு இன்பம் தந்தாய் -  ஆகையால் உன்னை இனியவன் என்பேன்

தீப்பொறியில் ஆரம்பித்து ஏவுகணை வரை அனைத்தும் உன்னாலேயே படைக்கப்பட்டது - ஆகையால் நீயே இறைவனும் என்பேன் 

இப்படி உலகம் யாவையும் உன்னாலே, உன் உழைப்பாலே..

சிந்தையில் வெவ்வேறாக இருப்பது மனிதனின் இயல்பு - ஆனால்
சிந்தை செய்யாமல் நீ நிற்பதோ வாழ்கையின் விளிம்பு..

நீ உடல் வருத்தி உழைத்து மற்றவர்களுக்கே ஈட்டிக்கொடுக்கும் நிலை நீடிக்குமாயின் - உன்னை முதுகெலும்பில்லாப் புழு என்று கூறப்போகும் அச்சம்



உன் கண்முன் தெரிகிற நம் சமூகம்
நீ சொல்லும் வார்த்தையை திருப்பிச் சொல்லும் பச்சசைக்கிளியல்ல பச்சோந்தி..!"

Some Random Questions - 2

Its been a while I touched any blogs. Its not because I didn't have time but on par I am a bit lazy person. I am writing this as I had little time to think about something that boggled my mind. I always had these questions in my mind. I have already raised some questions in here. The next set of questions are numbered below.

1) What are we really searching in life..? If you say money, then to what extent..? (I know many people would say 'Not money' to be on a safer side). If not money, then what else we are running for and on what logic..?

2) Sometimes I'll try to adapt some unique style in handling things (almost everything was a flop though :P). May be the attitude of trying be different made me to do so. With all these things in mind, I got a question in mind that these phenomenon in me is a natural occurrence or am I being cinematic (I never wanted to be so either; at least may be not after my 12th grade)..?

3) We are trying to earn a lot to get fit into the so called high-class curve leaving our physical or/and mental rest behind. At the end of everyday, we are running behind money and gain a materialistic pleasure (I would definitely say not a perfect happiness, at least for me). With these things pondering in my mind, I would ask that what kind of civilized society we are living in..? Is it necessary to abide by these axioms..?

4) When almost all the religions expect us to follow the same discipline, nowhere I see a statement that tells us to grow up with technology. Then what are these technologies are upto..? Why aren't we not sticking to do only farming enough to satisfy the hunger..? (I know that I have complicated the relationship between religion and technology. Yet I see some relation between these as I wanted to mention here that our technology started from a philosophy (like, the invention of light (technology) is to prevent us to from the dark (philosophy))). I would say that everything has a limitation and without that life would be a disaster, in the way I hope technology has its own limitation too.

5) I am little confused to select between these tools; violence and non-violence. I am not a better revolutionist to take up violence to penalize the unfair, to take up non-violence I am not a Gandhian either. Should I follow one strictly (I see cascading effect in taking up the tool. Yes, again.)? If not, explain.

Next set of questions will be in my future posts.

   Yes, this is what the subject of the mail I got few minutes from my friend who happened to be an Indian. It was actually an article form the Indian daily newspaper "The Hindu".

   I cannot paste the whole content of the mail but I can brief you all about the content. As a nutshell "The Cricket World Cup celebrations are done at the expense of an average death of 46 farmers/day in India. The article didn't really pointed out only the World Cup winning celebrations but the pain of death the dangling farmers get behind the government which unequally treats the person with the Mercedes and the tractor. Yes, I got to know that the interest rate for the farmer to buy a tractor is 15 % which is more than double the rate of interest of a person who loans an amount from a government bank for buying a Mercedes (Well, no other example is required to show the inequality of the government policies)". If this is considered as a  discrimination based on capital, it is fair for our government to get penalized.

   The nub of the article is not emphasizing the avoidance of winning celebrations but to make people envisage when spending their money in the name of unnecessary parties, to enlighten the government which spends in gifting a flat and paying crores for the players.

   I am not writing this to start up a new revolution but I want people who run government to realize that we are being fed by indirectly killing a farmer or his whole family. The worst part of the death is getting deceased because of lack of food for the farmer himself.

   After all, all I can say is "let us celebrate the victory together but not at the extent of the death of another person who fed us by ploughing".

   At this point I remember a short phrase of a poem by the great poet Bharathiyar, "தனி ஒருவனுக்கு உணவு இல்லையெனில் ஜகத்தினை அழித்திடுவோம் (If there is no food for a single person, let us destroy the whole world)". This kind of revolution, I won't say it will happen, at the same time I won't say it will not happen.

Some Random Questions - 1

   Its been for long years, I think, write and discuss and finally left with no answers. Now I guess that I could get some more stuff on some of the questions I am left with. I just wanted to know what people think about these jotted questions.

1) Why people (including me) are being skimpy even when they can offer something which costs nothing to them..? Example: The kindness you can shower, the trust you can put on, the love you can give, the bliss you can make. Will these things affect when it surpasses the threshold considering the present world situation..?

2) Which you consider as a best governmental structure..? Democracy / Republic / Tyranny / Monarchy / Anarchy / Combination of above all. I guess the last choice would be a correct one, but left with no clues as how to implement. Any ideas..?

3) I consider pride as a negative feeling (at least neutral). It is also considered as a sin according to the holy books too. I am not proud of being a son (may be a good one) of good parents (of course, every one got good parents). I am not proud of being student with good grades (at least a decent grade). I am not proud of having been/ going to be a fervent employee (at least a bit fervent). I am not at all proud of being a citizen of a country with enormous resource and a good cultural heritage (I am a bit happy about it, not proud though). I am not all proud about being a person of one renowned religion (Not even a bit). I consider all these things happened as natural occurrences and for which I don't celebrate vanity. My question really is, am I lacking any phenomena so that I can be proud of something or am I going in the right way..?

4) Is 'hanging to death' a proper law enacted for the crime of  intentional murder..? If it is right, don't the accused person be given any further chance to get his mind right after a necessary period of correct penalization..? If it is not right, is there any assurance that even after imprisonment they won't commit such murders..? By putting these thoughts forward, I extend it to a step ahead resulting in asking "What could be the correct gauge to punish..?"

5) Should we follow any code of ethics that comes as a restriction to any kind of pleasure..? Or, can I live my life seeking for all the pleasure without limitations..? I don't want to be 'a man full of principles' or 'a pervert' either. (By the end of this reading many could say that one could be happy without questioning like this like a non-sense person :P But then, we know that there are at least some morals we should follow.)

   I know these kind of questions are full of boring stuffs, but then, I should not be the only person who is a  nonsense-thinking-maniac and I want to confuse all :P. Your kind suggestions with noble justifications are really appreciated. Thanks in advance..!

வசந்தம் கொண்டுவரும் வரையில் தென்றலுக்குத் தெரியவில்லை;
தேன் ஊற்றெடுக்கும் வரையில் மலருக்குத் தெரியவில்லை;
அமுதம் கடைந்தேடுக்கும் வரையில் கடல் மத்துக்கு தெரியவில்லை;
மெல்லிசை ஈட்டும் வரையில் வீணைக்குத் தெரியவில்லை;
ஓவியம் வரையும் வரையில் ஓவியனுக்குத் தெரியவில்லை;
அதே போன்று
ஏன் ! உன்னைப் பெற்றெடுக்கும் வரையில் எனக்கும் தெரியவில்லை;

எனக்குள் கருவாகி இருக்கும் என் உயிர் நீ தான் என்று.

"குழந்தையை அணைத்துக் கொண்டே ஆனந்தம் அடையும்
அம்மாவின் மனக்குரல்..!"
