The banyan tree

When he came back, everything was different, a good kind of way. Tall buildings have risen above the ground , wide roads , big shopping malls, everything a modern city needs. People are flocking from all parts of the country. He felt good......Proud. But he can feel a hollowness amidst all these. That calmness and peacefulness he felt when he was a kid, is no more. Now all he felt is a kind of restlessness. All his friends were at jobs at different places. He felt like he is coming for the first time here. He feared that he has lost that connection with his home. He looked up to the sky.

Sun was beaming down from the sky and the air was hot. Both of them were walking around the town like it’s just another daily morning walk. The centre of the town is literally circle, built around an old temple, with acres of ground around it. The main road, circle around this ground and temple like a thick outline. They were walking through that vast ground. People were sitting, there were elephants roaming with their mahouts. Some were tied to the big banyan trees. They decided to sit in the shadows of a big banyan tree. 

He asked his friend, “shall we be able to sit like this again ?, I am going to miss this.”
His friend replied, “Me too, but I think, this place will bring us back here again. Our souls are linked to it.”
A cool gust of wind brushed over their hair, tousling it.

“It’s time, son. The ride is here”, his mother said. 
He snapped out of the thought. A big smile crossed his face. 
“Yes, mom, I m ready. “

He is ready to move on in his life. But he is sure now that the destination would be the same place where he has started, under the shadows of that banyan tree. He can see that his life is like the long road at the centre of town around the temple.

Christmas Card Tradition

Christmas have a special place in my life. I always felt that the weather is special and so lively during the time. A kind of peacefulness spreading all over. Such a happy time it is.

I have never missed a year sending cards during Christmas to my friends. It is one of my favourite activity during Christmas. I go to market, browse through the shops and select cards personally. I cherish doing this. My friends say i am just being an old tradition guy and nobody send cards through post now. We have online cards, Facebook and Watsapp for that. I agree with them, but by Sending cards this old tradition way, I am letting them know that I do care for them and they are worth my time. I guess this Christmas card tradition had started by an English man at 19th century. Anyways I would like to thank him for this fabulous idea. This tradition needs us to invest our time and love in the making of cards and letting them know that you are thinking about them at this time of happiness.

My wish for this New Year is that more and more people take up this dying tradition and spread happiness and love. i just want to tell the world that old traditions are still respected.

Google Baba

You do ur half and the other half, you leave it to Almighty, goes d saying. But who is this Almighty? whom people say to provide u with the other half. Now a days, we can see and feel the presence of Almighty around us. He is every where, the all knowing. He knows your likes and dislikes, hw u luk like, whom ur family are, hw s ur health etc. U ask him anything, the Answer is readily available. No questions wud go unanswered. He is slowly becoming d representative of collective human consciousness and knowledge. He will show u the right way if u r lost and will tell u where u r if u dont know d place. He can even help you converse in a country of different language. Almost everyone is a member of his family. He can save and is rejuvenating d long lost and near extinct languages and cultures. Who else can do all this other than Almighty ? from farmer to high-end technical person to scientists , all uses his vast knowledge base. He is always der for us. No questions asked, no prejudices and judgements. He will be the future of our past. Our history, human history wud be saved and kept safe in a place where anyone , even after long times in d future, could access it at any point of time. Our history would b left to interpretation , unlike the infallibility of certain kinds of mythological figures and pseudo historical events, we see, hear and experience. Then real democracy would prevail. The entire human race wud b in d altar of final judgment day comes. Every one wud have their own version of interpretation, yet only one actual fact.

It is phenomenal how google changed our world. The word "google it " has become ubiquitous. Every one knows everything or atleast heard of anything under d sun. Google make use of almost every resources without exhausting it, unlike us humans. It is not male or female or can b both, like the formless Almighty god, who can b anybody we want him to be.
