Jagannath Temple – Covid-19.

The relevance of Puri Jagannath temple to the the current situation prevailing in India.

There is an interesting story behind the idols at Puri Jagannath temple. The king of Puri had a dream. In the dream, he was ordained to carve the idols out of the wooden log that would float in the sea on the coast of Puri. None of the sculptors in his kingdom could think of how to carve the idols from the log. Then an aged sculptor approached the king and offered to carve the idols and asked for 21 days to complete the task . But he put a condition that he will not eat or drink anything for 21 days and that none should disturb him during those 21 days.

After closing the door, he started working on the idols. Each day, the king would come and stand near the closed door. From outside the door, he would hear the sound of the hammer and chisel on the wood. Satisfied that the work was proceeding, he would leave. This went on for 15 days. On the 16th day he did not hear any sound. On the 17th and 18th day also he did not hear anything. With just three of the 21 days remaining, overcome by anxiety and curious to know the condition inside, on the 19th day the king opened the door and went inside. Immediately, the sculptor disappeared from his sight never to be seen again.

The king realized that it was Vishwakarma himself who had come in the form of a sculptor. The idols were half finished with the hands and legs yet to be sculpted. Hence, legend has it that, the idols at Puri Jagannath temple are without hands and legs. If only the king had patiently waited for three more days!

How is this story relevant today? Compare this to the conditions prevailing in India today. While the lockdown was beginning to bear fruits, impatient citizens, ignoring good counsel to stay indoors have started moving outdoors, nullifying the advantages gained through lockdown. Even the rulers, obsessed with economic gains over loss to humanity, are throwing caution to wind, ignoring sane and sensible advice from medical experts. Can India afford this costly lapse? Will the inadequate medical infrastructure in India be able to cope with signs of the virus spreading its tentacles? Will sanity rule among the citizens and decision makers?

LockDown – Covid-19

I came across a nice inspiring story and sharing here.

Once, Lord Indra got upset with Farmers, he announced there will be no rain for 12 years & you won’t be able to produce crops.

Farmers begged for clemency from Lord Indra , who then said , Rain will be possible only if Lord Shiva plays his Damru. But he secretly requested Lord Shiva not to agree to these Farmers & when Farmers reached Lord Shiva he repeated the same thing that he will play Damru after 12 years.

Disappointed Farmers decided to wait till 12 years.

But one Farmer regularly was digging, treating & putting manure in the soil & sowing the seeds even with no crop emerging.

Other Farmers were making fun of that Farmer . After 3 years all Farmers asked that Farmer why are you wasting your time n energy when you know that rains will not come before 12 years.

He replied “I know that crop won’t come out but I’m doing it as a matter of “practice”. After 12 years I will forget the process of growing crops and working in the field so I must keep it doing so that I’m fit to produce the crop the moment there is rain after 12 years.”

Hearing his argument Goddess Parvati praised his version before Lord Shiva & said “You may also forget playing the Damru after 12 years!”

The innocent Lord Shiva in his anxiety just tried to play the Damru, to check if he could….and hearing the sound of Damru immediately there was rain and the farmer who was regularly working in the field got his crop emerged immediately while others were disappointed.

It is the practice which keeps on making you perfect.

We become even diseased or old just because we don’t practice.

Practice is the essence of quality survival.

So, let lockdown lift after 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years. Whatever trade or profession we are in, keep sharpening our skills, practice with what we have, upgrade our knowledge.

Don’t wait for rain , that is the lock down to be lifted and then start something… focus on our skills today, upskill your self so that you are ready to meet the challenges.

-Thanks whatsapp fwd.

Kids Imagination !!!

<Story I came across>

A story in one of the schools in Bengaluru where admission is considered impossible!!!

To get UKG admission

The child could not understand why they brought her there..

When we all were standing, the school principal started to converse with the child….yes…in English only! This is one of the most memorable interview I have ever witnessed in my life..
Here goes..

“What’s your name?”

“Sita”

“Good. Tell me something you know”

“I know many things. Tell me what you want…!”

Alas, there is no better point for not getting the admission!

Sita’s mother was trying to make up the situation but the principal stopped her..

Turning to child, she said.. “Tell any rhyme or story which you know..”

Again,”Which one you want.. Rhyme or Story!?”

“Ok. Plz tell me a story..”

“Do uou want to hear what I studied or what I wrote..!?”

Taken to surprise, she asked “Oh! you write stories…???”

“Why should I not write..?”

Now even I was taken aback But she was impressed with the answer. She ( including us) would have not heard such a story in our life…

Ok, tell me story which you have written-?

Sita said

 

One day “Ravanan kidnapped Sita & took her to Srilanka”

The opening scene failed to impress but still she encouraged the child to continue..

“Rama asked Hanumans help to rescue Sita. Hanuman too agreed to help Rama …”

“Then?”

“Now, Hanuman called his friend Spider man.” No one expected this twist in the story!!

“Why?”

“Because there are lot of mountains between India and Srilanka.. but if we have Spiderman we can go easily with his rope…”

“But Hanuman can fly isn’t it.. ?”

“Yes. But he is having Sanjeevi Mountain on one hand so he cannot fly very fast.!”

All is quiet, after a while Sita asked “Should I continue or not?.”.

“Ok plz continue!”

“Hanuman and Spiderman flew to Srilanka and rescued Sita. Sita said Thanks to both!”

“Why”

“When you are helped you should say Thanks!”

So Sita requested Hanuman to call Hulk…”

All were surprised.She realized our curiosity and said ” Now Sita is there, so to take her safely back to Rama she called Hulk”

“What??? “Hanuman can carry Sita right?”

“Yes. But he has Sanjeevi Mountain in one hand and has to hold spider man on the other”

No one could control thier smiles. ” So when they all started to India they met my friend Akshay! ”

“How come Akshay there now?”

“Because its my story and I can bring any one there!”

The principal didn’t get angry but waited for the next twist

Then all started to India and landed at Bangalore majestic bus stop!

Now I asked,”Why they have landed In majestic bus stop?

“Because they forgot the way..& Hulk got an idea and called Dora!”

I came to know about Dora only there…!

“Dora came and she took Sita to malleshwaram 5th cross ….. that’s all!”

She finished the story with a smile.. 😀

The principal asks “Why malleshwaram 5th cross…?”

“Because sita lives there & i am Sita!!!”

The principal was impressed and embraced the child. She has been admitted in UKG & was gifted with a Dora doll…

Kids can really amaze… but we clip their wings (creativity) expecting them to do things as we see it right & not from their viewpoint.

Let’s give every child freedom to do their own thing & watch their dreams come true…

 

Thanks

Like and share ….

Good People

A 4 yr old boy was in the market with his 6 yr old sister…
Suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind.He stopped and looked back.His sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.The boy went back to her and asked:
“Do you want something?”
The sister pointed at the doll. The boy held her hand and like a responsible elder brother, gave that doll to her.The sister was very very happy… The shopkeeper was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behaviour of the boy… Now the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper,
“What is the cost of this doll,Sir!” The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life.So he asked the boy with a lot of love n affection:
” Well,What can you pay?” The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from sea shore,from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper took the shells and started counting as if he were counting the currency. Then he looked at the boy.The boy asked him worriedly:
“Is it less?” The shopkeeper said,”No,No… These are more than the cost.So I will return the remaining.” Saying so,he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining. The boy, very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister…
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these.He asked his master:
” Sir!You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells???”
The shopkeeper said with a smile:
“Well,For us these are mere shells.But for that boy,these shells are very precious.And at this age he does not understand what money is,but when he will grow up,he definitely will. And when he would remember that he purchased a doll with the Shells instead of Money,he will remember Me and think that world is full of Good people.He will develop positive thinking..Thats it…”

Self-Tolerance

Put a frog into a vessel fill with water and start heating the water. As the temperature of the water begins to rise, the frog adjust its body temperature accordingly. The frog keeps adjusting its body temperature with the increasing temperature of the water. Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog cannot adjust anymore. At this point the frog decides to jump out. The frog tries to jump but it is unable to do so because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature. Very soon the frog dies.
What killed the frog?
Think about it!
I know many of us will say the boiling water. But the truth about what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when to jump out.
We all need to adjust with people & situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust & when we need to move on. There are times when we need to face the situation and take appropriate actions.
If we allow people to exploit us physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually or mentally they will continue to do so.
Let us decide when to jump!


“Let’s jump while we still have the strength”.

Parents do not expect us to pay back

That night, Sue quarreled with her mother, then stormed out of the house. While enroute, she remembered that she did not have any money in her pocket, she did not even have enough coins to make a phone call home.

At the same time, she went through a noodle shop, picking up sweet fragrance, she suddenly felt very hungry. She wished for a bowl of noodles, but she had no money!

The seller saw her standing wheat faltered before the counter and asked:

– Hey little girl, you want to eat a bowl?

– But … but I do not carry money … she shyly replied.

– Okay, I’ll treat you – the seller said – come in, I will cook you a bowl.

A few minutes later the owner brought her a steaming bowl of noodles. Ate some pieces, Sue cried.

– What is it? – He asked.

– Nothing. I am just touched by your kindness! – Sue said as she wiped her tears.

– Even a stranger on the street gives me a bowl of noodles, and my mother, after a quarrel, chased me out of the house. She is cruel!!

The seller sighed:

– Girl, why did you think so? Think again. I only gave you a bowl of noodles and you felt that way. Your mother had raised you since you were little, why were you not grateful and disobeyed your mom?

Sue was really surprised after hearing that.

“Why did I not think of that? A bowl of noodles from a stranger made me feel indebted, and my mother has raised me since I was little and I have never felt so, even a little.”

On the way home, Sue thought in her head what she would say to her mother when she arrives home: “Mom, I’m sorry. I know it is my fault, please forgive me … ”

Once up the steps, Sue saw her mother worried and tired of looking for her everywhere. Upon seeing Sue, her mother gently said: “Sue, come inside honey. You are probably very hungry? I cooked rice and prepared the meal already, come eat while it is still hot …”

Cannot control any longer, Sue cried in her mom’s hands.

!! Morals !!

In life, we appreciate the small actions of some people around us but, for the relatives, especially parents, we see their sacrifices as a natural act …

Parental love and concern are the most precious gifts we have been given since birth.

Parents do not expect us to pay back for nurturing us .. but have we ever appreciated or treasure the unconditional sacrifice of our parents?

ಛತ್ರಪತಿ ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರು

ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಶದಲ್ಲಿ ಅನೇಕ ತರಹದ ರಾಜರುಗಳು ಆಗಿ ಹೋಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ.  ಕೆಲ­ವರು ತಮ್ಮ ಶೌರ್ಯದಿಂದ ಖ್ಯಾತಿ­ ಗಳಿಸಿದರೆ, ಮತ್ತೆ ಕೆಲವರು ದಾನ­ದಿಂದ. ಆದರೆ, ಕೆಲವರು ಕೇವಲ ಭೋಗದಿಂದ ಜನರ ಟೀಕೆಗೆ ಒಳಗಾದರೆ ಕೊಲ್ಹಾ­ಪುರದ ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜ­ಅವರಂಥವರು ತಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರಜೆಗಳ ಹಕ್ಕುಗಳಿ­ಗಾಗಿ, ಸಮಾನತೆಗಾಗಿ, ಅವರ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಬಹುದೊಡ್ಡ ಕೆಲಸವನ್ನು ಮಾಡಿ ಜಗಮಾನ್ಯರಾದರು. 1884 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಜನಿ­ಸಿದ ಛತ್ರಪತಿ ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರು ಜನರ ಉತ್ಥಾನ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣದಿಂದ ಮಾತ್ರ ಸಾಧ್ಯ ಎಂದು ನಂಬಿ ಸರ್ವರಿಗೂ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣದ ಅವಕಾಶ ಮಾಡಿ­ಕೊಟ್ಟರು. ಅದರಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ಸಮಾಜದ ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಕಡೆಯ ವರ್ಗವನೆನ್ನಿಸಿ­ಕೊಂಡವರಿಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಆದ್ಯತೆ ನೀಡಿ ವಸತಿ ಶಾಲೆಗಳನ್ನು ಸ್ಥಾಪಿಸಿ ಉಚಿತ ಹಾಗೂ ಕಡ್ಡಾಯದ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ದೊರಕಿಸಿದರು. ದಲಿತರ ಮುಖವಾಣಿ­ಯಾದರು. ಆಗಿನ ಕಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಅಸ್ಪೃಶ್ಯರು ಬಾವಿಯನ್ನು ಮುಟ್ಟುವಂತಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ.  ಯಾರಾದರೂ ಸವರ್ಣೀಯರು ಬಂದು ನೀರು ಸೇದಿ ಹಣಿಸಿದರೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಅವರಿಗೆ ನೀರು. ಒಬ್ಬ ಅಸ್ಪೃಶ್ಯನಿಗೆ ತುಂಬ ಬಾಯಾರಿಕೆಯಾಗಿ ಅನೇಕರಿಗೆ ನೀರು ಕೊಡಿರೆಂದು ಹಲು­ಬುತ್ತಾನೆ.

ಯಾರೂ ಕರುಣೆ ತೋರ­ದಿದ್ದಾಗ ಬಾಯಾರಿಕೆ­ಯನ್ನು ತಡೆಯದೇ ತಾನೇ ನೀರು ಸೇದಿಕೊಂಡು ಕುಡಿ­ಯುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಇದನ್ನು ಕಂಡ ಸವರ್ಣೀ­ಯರು ಆತನನ್ನು ಪ್ರಜ್ಞೆ ತಪ್ಪುವಂತೆ ಥಳಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಆ ಮನುಷ್ಯನ ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರು, ಪರಿವಾರದವರು ಅವನನ್ನು ಹೊತ್ತು-­ಕೊಂಡು ಅರಮನೆಗೆ ಬಂದು ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರನ್ನು ಕಂಡು ಸಂಗತಿಯನ್ನು ವಿವರಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ.  ಆಗ ಮಹಾ­ರಾಜರು ಯಾವ ಯಾವ ಸವರ್ಣೀಯ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿ ಈ ದೀನನನ್ನು ಹೊಡೆ­ದಿದ್ದಾನೋ ಅವರ­ನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಕರೆಸಿ ಇನ್ನೊಮ್ಮೆ ಆ ತರಹ ಮಾಡದಂತೆ ದಂಡಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಅಲ್ಲ, ಆ ಅಸ್ಪೃಶ್ಯ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಗೆ ಹಣಕೊಟ್ಟು ಅರಮನೆಯ ಹತ್ತಿರವೇ ಒಂದು ಚಹಾದ ಅಂಗಡಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಕೊಡುತ್ತಾರೆ.  ನಂತರ ಸಮಯ ದೊರೆತಾಗಲೆಲ್ಲ ಅವನ ಚಹಾದ ಅಂಗಡಿಗೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಅವನೇ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಟ್ಟ ಚಹಾವನ್ನು ಅವ­ನೊಂದಿಗೇ ಕುಡಿ­ಯುತ್ತಾರೆ.  ತಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಕಾಣಲು ಬಂದವ­ರನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಅದೇ ಚಹಾ ಅಂಗಡಿಗೆ ಕರೆಸಿ, ಅವರಿಗೂ ಆತ ಮಾಡಿದ ಚಹಾ ಕುಡಿಸಿ ಕಳಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದರು.  ಜಾತಿಯ ಅಹಂಕಾರ­ದಿಂದ ಮರೆಯು­ತ್ತಿದ್ದವರ ಭ್ರಮೆಗಳನ್ನು ಸ್ವತಃ ತಾವೇ ಮಾದರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಿಂತು ನಿವಾರಿ­ಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದರು.

ಅವರು ಮೂಢನಂಬಿಕೆಯನ್ನೂ ಬಲವಾಗಿ ವಿರೋಧಿಸಿದ್ದರು.  ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಅವರ ಆಸ್ಥಾನಕ್ಕೆ ಒಬ್ಬ ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷಿ ಬಂದ. ಅವರ ಭವಿಷ್ಯವನ್ನು ಹೇಳುತ್ತೇನೆ ಎಂದ. ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರು ಅವನನ್ನು ಮರುದಿನ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಅರಮನೆಗೆ ಬರುವಂತೆ ಹೇಳಿದರು. ಆತ ಹೇಳಿದಂತೆ ಬಂದೊಡನೆ ಅರಮನೆಯ ಸೈನಿಕರು ಅವನನ್ನು ಬಂಧಿಸಿ ಕಾರಾಗೃಹಕ್ಕೆ ತಳ್ಳಿದರು. ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷಿ ಗಾಬರಿಯಾದ, ತನ್ನ ತಪ್ಪೇನು ಎಂದು ಸೈನಿಕರನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿದ. ಅವರು ತಮಗೆ ಕಾರಣ ಗೊತ್ತಿಲ್ಲವೆಂತಲೂ, ಬಹುಶಃ ಮರುದಿನ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಅವನಿಗೆ ನೇಣು ಹಾಕಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆಂದೂ ಹೇಳಿ­ದಾಗ ಆತ ಕಂಗಾಲಾಗಿ, ಹೊರಳಾಡಿ ಅತ್ತ, ರಾತ್ರಿಯೆಲ್ಲ ಒದ್ದಾಡಿದ ಆತನನ್ನು ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರ ಮುಂದೆ ಕರೆತಂದರು.

ಆತ ದೊಪ್ಪನೇ ಮಹಾರಾಜರ ಕಾಲಮೇಲೆ ಬಿದ್ದು, ‘ಸ್ವಾಮೀ, ನನ್ನಿಂದ ಯಾವ ಅಪ­ರಾಧವೂ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲ, ನನಗೆ ಏಕೆ ಈ ಶಿಕ್ಷೆ?’ ಎಂದು ಕೇಳಿದ.  ಆಗ ಮಹಾರಾಜರು, ‘ಅಲ್ಲಪ್ಪ, ನೀನು ನಿನ್ನೆ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಅರಮನೆಗೆ ಬರುವಾಗ ನಿನ್ನನ್ನು ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ಹಾಕುತ್ತಾ­ರೆಂಬ ಭವಿಷ್ಯ ತಿಳಿದಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ನಿನಗೇ ನಾಳೆ ಏನಾಗುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂಬುದು ತಿಳಿಯದಿದ್ದಾಗ ನನ್ನ ಅಥವಾ ಮತ್ತೊಬ್ಬರ ಭವಿಷ್ಯ ನಿನಗೆ ಹೇಗೆ ತಿಳಿದೀತು? ಸಾಕು, ಇನ್ನೂ ಜನರನ್ನು ಮೋಸಮಾಡಬೇಡ’ ಎಂದು ತಾಕೀತು ಮಾಡಿ ಕಳುಹಿಸಿದರು. ಇಂತಹ ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಕಳಕಳಿಯ, ಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕ ಚಿಂತನೆಯ, ದೀನರಿಗೆ ಧ್ವನಿಯಾದ, ಸಮಾನತೆಯ ಹರಿಕಾರರಾದ ನಾಯ­ಕರು ಮಾನವತೆ ಮೆರೆಯುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಇದ್ದಾಗ ಅನೇಕ ಜನರಿಗೆ ಬೆಳಕಾಗು­ತ್ತಾರೆ. ಜೀವಿತದ ಅವಧಿ ಮುಗಿದ ಬಳಿಕವೂ ಉಜ್ವಲ ಪ್ರಭೆಯ ದಾರಿದೀಪವನ್ನು ತೋರುತ್ತಾರೆ.  ಅಂಥ ಮಹಾನುಭಾವರಲ್ಲಿ ಛತ್ರಪತಿ ಶಾಹೂ ಮಹಾರಾಜರೂ ಒಬ್ಬರು.
