2nd July!!!


As I was deciding or rather wondering what to cook for lunch . The decision also involved whether I should cook in the first place considering the dry taps and limited water here in Pune.

Anyways! ... on 2nd July at last the courts decriminalized homosexuality.Though this judgment vitally affects the lives of few gay people . There are many other opportunists who seek such events to bask in the limelight by making fancy statements about the events.Its funny!

Baba Ramdev has fiercely opposed the move and said that homosexuals are diseased people in need of treatment and nothing else.This is one time I feel the yoga guru has gone a bit too far , but he is entitled to his opinions.

There are also people who said that it is not the state's business as to what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms . That makes sense but there are many dumbos who questioned as to whether should rape , murder , incest and pedophilia happen behind closed doors . These idiots don't even understand what is meant by consenting adults and they want to express their silly opinions and create chaos.

Gay individuals did the most of the new found freedom and have come out of the closet . It is wonderful to see such freedom in out nation.People who oppose this judgment are the same people who have no opposition to 'horny' uncles or despos thrusting and rubbing their groins against females in crowded buses .. yuck!

God Bless our amazing nation!

Light on relationships


Spirituality is the core and it transcends any religion.The more I attend to my spiritual side the more firmly I feel that religion is not where we ought to stop .

I was watching a video of a discourse by mystic and spiritual guru Jaggi Vasudev. The commonly held perception is that when people have mystical leanings they become loners living in solitude.

Is this true? Do spiritual people not value relationships?

Spiritual people can also be in relationships and fulfill their commitments to the fullest.In fact they can do it much better then the so-called sansari ( worldly) people.Normally, in this world when people get into or find themselves in any relationship, they try to make the most out of the other person. To put it in a better they try to extract happiness from the other person.This becomes the cause of downfall in the long run.Spirituality means finding bliss in oneself and when a truly spiritual person gets into a relationship he uses it as a chance to share this bliss or happiness or joy.I always used to wonder when my Art of Living teacher used to say " relationships are all about giving " . I took it in a very material sense and hence it did not click with me for a long time.

What I realized now can be summed up very easily : " Relationships will truly succeed if you use them as means to express your joy and not to extract joy "

Another analogy is about beggars . Can two beggars beg from each other? .
Obviously No. Then how can two individuals extract happiness from each other in a relationship . It doesn't even sound logical doing so.

The above analogy and scenario was mutual.In some relationships which we generally call "one way traffic" , it so happens that a person looks for happiness in another person and that person in turn is searching for it somewhere else in somebody else.Again a recipe for disaster.Taking the begging bowl in one's hand is perfectly fine but we have to do it for much higher and much nobler causes.

God Bless!
