Moral science stories for kids 5: The one with moving on

Don’t get too much attached to things, Just move on in life, just go with the flow.

    Well, there are many quotes on how to live life, how not to live life. Some on never missing an opportunity, some on creating your own way etc.You gotta agree that there are some thing under our control & some things totally not under our control. Can we always have a philosophy for leading life something as :

“Do your best, forget the rest or just leave it to god”
What if success is just one proactive step away?  Is it that I am quitting trying just one step lower than success? You plan every minute detail about your journey towards your destination, like how to get to your dream job, what are the specific action points in your career path? Or that fantastic lake view apartment you have always planned with your hubby. You may work towards achieving them systematically, but still sometimes you may miss getting them. Well, if every small action determines your life’s path then you got to be extra cautious in getting those smallest actions done with precision. Even the smallest detour may have significant impact, sometimes in a positive way may be. Say for example if you apply for a job vacancy out of curiosity to just find out if you have a shot at it, & surprisingly you get the job & now you are in a confused state of mind as you were actually not prepared to quit the current one.
Well friends, things do come in life quite randomly, some anticipated & some others as a surprise. You got to go with the flow. There is no need to be too much emotionally or romantically attached to things, we have come with nothing in our hands & will go the same way, everything every possession, every person we loved is gonna be left behind in the end.
Only the things we experienced in life are to be enjoyed to the fullest in their moment, the beauty of the moment is that it passes by. Yesterday is a history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is the present, hence the name present. We may not have absolute full answers to all the questions we come across in life, but it happens that it’s not important to have the answers but it is relevant to know how to deal with those questions & this is what I think really matters.

Where will I be in 5 yrs?  Whom I gonna be married?  What are my expectations out of my partner?
How the hell to find out if I am the right or worthy guy for this girl? Questions will always be there, & then when you grow older, more questions, but the ability to handle them is what matters. You are more equipped to handle the bigger challenges as you grow older in life. Relatives & friends will always be there to guide you support you in you decisions etc. but they are not you, however closer they may be to you, they may not be able to guess your true desires & decide on your behalf on things you want in life. The ultimate decisions you take in your life should be by you alone considering the inputs from friends & relatives.  You need to control the sail of your boat of life.
Life runs on law of averages, if something bad happens, something good is also lurking around the corner. In the end its all the averages, finding your moments in small daily pleasures of life is what matter at the end as you look the big picture behind.

Mysterious Life

A guitar with the broken string
flying the kite of life with a loose string
working hard to make ends meet
life with its mysterious swing
enjoying the mystical flow
seeming that it will all make sense one fine day

As destiny unfurls
with its amazing twists & turns
and the slopes & steeps
trying to stay ahead in the race,
sometimes realizing the destination never matters
As time passes by
the self discovery never ends

In the end its the life that triumphs
assuming that I danced to the rhymes of life
only to realize, am puppet in the hands of someone (girl friend/ life, not god ofcourse)

For dreams may come & dreams may go
only to make you more stronger than ever
Some moments you wanna relive
some moments you never wanna pass so quickly

That loneliness in the crowd
that search for some one special
then you came along
made me realize that some can be
as weird as me

away from home in search of something
trying to be someone for everyone
That deep desire to return home
only to realize that the home is not the same

Flushing down the memory lane
thoughts that disturbed
holding onto the good ones so badly
only to realize that everything gets left behind
only thing is the experience which counts at the end
making the life worth of living

the happiness is only real when shared
I am glad that you came along
to become the music of my lyrics
danced to the rhyme of life
So much in love with you & our life

Your first flower will wither in my book
but the memory stays afresh
your cheeks were like the pink petal
you were just a thought away
never missed you anyway

being there for me always in my arms

just living by the moment
making the most of the things we got
yet another day passes by
without regretting the crazy life we sought

PS: Still not complete, this is just about the mystery component in life, love etc.

Before Sunset & Before Sunrise : Movie review

Before Sunrise (1995) & Before Sunset (2004)

            Sometimes in the random walks of life, you meet some strangers with whom you really connect on an emotional level or intellectual level, totally agree to an opinion or statement, seems as of you are speaking to yourself. You tend to be amazed in the moment of resonance when your frequency matches with the frequency of the other person. Well if they happen to be of opposite sex, well this can be tagged soul mate, personally I believe the soul mate concept is overrated and oversold by the matrimony advertisements. But that moment shared has something special to last sometime if not for ever in your life. This movie is just about two strangers striking a pleasant conversation and when you will be expecting something more to be in the story you need to see the sequel Before Sunset. This American guy Jesse who is on a Europe trip on a train only because he does not want to get back home soon, meets a French girl Celine who takes the train too afraid to fly to her home. The fact that Jesse needs to fly back to US in day and seeing that they get along so well, dares to ask her out, in this sense ask her to come out to train, to just walk & talk on the streets of Vienna.They get along so well, they talk for the entire day and believe me the conversations are so interesting, refreshing kind of that it makes you feel its good sometime to take out that ipod or FM earphones and look for such a possibility in bus or train.    

Here’s a quote from the movie - Into the Wild : 

Christopher McCandless: The core of mans' spirit comes from new experiences….

Extending this idea, I suppose this includes meeting new people, making new friends, sharing & exploring their personalities, appreciating their thought process etc.

            Well, we meet so many people in life, most of them you do not stay in touch with, some come with a reason to change your life, and some come with a reason to change your life forever. Sometimes we share a special connection, similarity in thoughts, not necessarily similarity in thoughts but considering & respecting each other views & respecting boundaries.

Thanks to nowadays iPods, podcasts, FM etc. people just put them are like holding sign boards, don’t disturb me, I am least interested in you or a possible conversation between us.

There is so much diversity in nature, each one even though raised with same background two people have so much different assumptions, perceptions about life. Who has time for others these days. But sometimes when we are bored being with ourselves only, need a companion to share thoughts, consider what the other person is thinking, etc. They talk about all things under sky & beyond, just casual talk taking no where. Everyone is entitled to their opinions anyway.

          You know this one kind of portrays as a light hearted story, unlike the heavy, intense ones like Shawshank Redemption or Forrest Gump movies which tell the story of a life time, this though is just a moment captured of lives of two random people, and some of the dialogs are very intense, leave you wondering about them.

We see life through our own mindset, through a small window of our perceptions and assumptions, The beauty of a moment is in its virtue that it passes by & this makes it worth living & enjoying it the most. So if you just take a moment to feel its passion,  its glory, its importance, it becomes a memory and then life goes on …some memories you forget, some can never be forgotten.
Totally must watch for its calmness & serenity. 

I love this poem in the movie, may be for its hidden dimensions, it says a lot though : 

Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash 
Oh baby with your pretty face
Drop a tear in my wineglass
Look at those big eyes
See what you mean to me
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes

I'm a delusion angel 
I'm a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don't want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from 
We have no idea where we're going

Lodged in life
Like branches of a river
Flowing downstream
caught in the the current
I carry you
you carry me
That's how it could be
Don't you know me
Don't you know me by now ?

Rajnikanth quotes, jokes, sms

The above two pics are from net, below quotes are mine : 
Rajnikanth codes directly in the hex or executable file. 

Rajnikanth does not get compiler errors, whatever he codes becomes the syntax. 

Once Rajnikanth was denied onsite, all the onsite colleagues came offshore to work with him ! 

Which frame has highest priority on CAN,  air bag signal ? Brk signal ? - No it's Rajnikanth's frame

All nodes back off when Rajnikanth wants to transmit a frame - even the bus monitoring signal - CSMA CD stuff.

Rajnikanth can put a breakpoint in the hex file & debug . 

Rajnikanth can write a C program without main. He is the main 

Rajnikanth has already #defined the #define to Rajnikanth 

When Rajnikanth tries to send frame on CAN all nodes back off, permanently.

Rajnikanth once attended the skip level meeting, The CEO of company raised some genuine concerns to Rajnikanth. 

Rajnikanth's just one soldier can beat everyone in chess, with just one move. 

Once Rajnikanth ran Misra check for his files & gave Rajnikanth's warnings to Misra. 
(Misra is coding guidelines to be followed by some automotive electronics embedded companies )

Every semicolon in c should be terminated by Rajnikanth, he is the end of all things 

The Ansi C compiler has changed the null character \0 to Rajnikanth. He is the end of all things. 

Intel has now agreed to change their punch line, " Rajnikanth inside, Logic outside" 

Rajnikanth once keyed in high level language on 8085 & it ran. 

Rajnikanth's car does not need MIL, he knows what error has occurred. 

Rajnikanth by mistake typed the attributes twice value - this became xml. 

Rajnikanth played scrabble & ran out of alphabets in first chance itself.

Once the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) glowed y mistake, Rajnikanth was son angry that it never turns on now again, the headlights are always turned on in fear, indicators are just too confused.

The true name of Rajnikanth was Rajnican't, but there was nothing Rajni can't do. Hence it was renamed to Rajnikanth.

Moral science stories for kids 4: The one with parenting

        You know what kids, parents often bring up their children wrongly, rich parents gave them little too much, poor parents did not give them at all etc. So just realize you have it in your hands to shape your life in the way you want it to be, Your parents will compare with the brightest kid in the class, expect you to score high marks as him. Just think of this in this way :  There is no single race - exams are not running race to score high marks. But consider this there are many races & you get to choose one before you can run in it, set goals for yourself & achieve them, practical short term & long term goals. If you are into sports, if thats what gonna turn into, if you are not having a great aptitude. Don't waste time improving your aptitude, try a hand at what you are good at. If not successful have a plan B to recover from that & get back on track in life. Always account for variable change. Always have a plan B in life, if plan A fails, Plan B should have damage control and set a new direction for you sail. you got to prove to you parents, that getting high marks is not my life, but achieve something & show that this is what you want in life, there can be only one first rank is class right ?

Small advice for parent's, let your child be what he wanna be, after all you want him to be happy right  
Get ahead and become what you wanna be.  

I had a strange revelation once while trekking, I rarely trek, in fact I do hardly any physical exercise, hence this was tough for me. We went down a waterfall, more of a valley hardly no one around, only five of us friends. Going down was easier but the journey backwards, an uphill climbing task, this was full of thorns & bushes, not much grip to hold on & climb, rest of my friends has already climbed up. One of my friend stayed with me ensuring that I made it up with him. initially i felt the climbing was much tougher than it seems & of course was very scared. But there was no other choice, somehow managed to climb it with help form my friend. later I realized - Walking the path was easier than it seemed. we have all these negative emotions & thoughts that its gonna be tough , impossible etc, but when you actually dare to do so, it may be a lot more easier than you imagined it to be. 

Everything happen twice in your life, once in your mind and then in actuality or reality.
you are the architect of your destiny, also destruction. 
Here is the quote from Matrix :

Don't think you are Be you are 
Don't try to hit me and hit me

Hope this helped.
