[ My Home 12.]

I have eleven posts on this topic and this is the 12th and perhaps more to follow as and when I feel I have few things to say.My Home is a very sweet word to me,so sweet that I am diabetic.A diabetic has to stay in his home for various reasons.The food for a diabetic is unusual and not cooked normally in many houses.he has his own menu card found only in few hotels.There are no exclusive hotels for diabetics though.In My Home,My Wife can only eat the diet that is prepared for me,she would and she can eat the diet of non diabetics but sacrifices her needs and taste for my sake a tough choice for her.
It is just not the diet that is boring sometimes but the frequency of meal times which again is another extra unusual.The normal lunch gets divided in to two and the night food is no meal but half meal with bedtime milk.
I cannot expect such Royal Luxury in a hotel let alone a friends or a relative's home as a Guest.
Travel is out of bounds for diabetics who are not filthy rich.Its only for the filthy rich and politicians.Our Prime Minister is a diabetic who can travel with team of Doctors all specialists in functioning of human body parts and the machines intricate unseen parts.
A middle class citizen who is neither rich though not filthy rich or poor though not below poverty line as defined by our Democratic Government as the one who cannot afford to even get the medical tests done properly.A test done in one Medical Diagnostic Center will not show the same result as other.Even a Diabetic Specialist Doctor's view of a report will not be the same as another and so also the drugs that a doctor prescribes same as other doctor in the same road.
Its in your home you can enjoy your blood glucose level being kept under control and keeping trust in your doctor.Its My Home that's my heaven on earth.I can keep my things where ever I want.I can find anything I want that I would have kept some where sometime but difficult immediately some times to my wife's annoyance.I can clean anything even my toilet.I can throw away anything that I have the birth right to throw away anything.
My Home is a place where there are my life time achievement of Junks that are very special to me.They are my sweetest memories as long as I can have them kept safe.What happens to them after I am gone doesn't bother me.How do I know if I remember them in another place unknown to me.When I see a museum I wish I could keep my Junk like that in wooden cupboards with glass doors.
Just last week I visited our proud Government Owned World Famous MYSORE SANDAL WOOD SOAP FACTORY,there I saw my college professor's photo in the museum.He was the adopted son of the then Princely State of Mysore,Dewan Sir.M.Visweswaraiah who made the project and implemented it and my professor and his wife with their children were in that picture.This is a factory 100 years old and has a museum.This is the type I had in my mind for my Junk.Do not :-D
The Books my children have left here is special to me and is priceless.
The Yearly Diary's,note books,magazines in which my name is found and my old gifts given on so many occasions,my textile fabrics made by me which created more foes than friends as they could not produce them like Technical Textile Yarn I made 30 years back was a challenge.
My wedding gifts that my parents in law gave me is no junk as we cooked our food for our first meal after our marriage in them.They are made of Brass with a coating of lead alloy inside it is now a show piece with vegetable dishes in 5 star hotels.
My Wedding suit is missing my wife must have given it in exchange for a new vessel as my body was much bigger after marriage,these clothes were pigmy for me.
I can set up a museum now but it won't be a Government Heritage Museum to be kept.Here in India if you lock up your room and return after a few weeks you will keep crying for a long time till the police say we will get it for you.What they meant was they will get it for them.That's how burglars and thieves work.Some cannot be caught even though the police find as they are police informers.The plight of two wheeler owners is same.The thieves have learn t all in the film GONE IN 60 SECONDS

[ My Home 11.]

[ My Home 10.]

In INDIA it's a dream to have a Home on wheels,no harm in dreaming " MY HOME ON WHEELS " and of course a big bank balance another dream,dreams may not come as you wish,efforts can.What indeed is our real dream.After you come out from your college with a Diploma or a Degree your first dream is a study good Job with whatever pay you get.Then it's your pay you need a raise and there is no chance you will get in your present Job.So next thing you dream of changing your Job.In your efforts you will succeed but your parents have a dream too.You got to listen to them or if they keep mum you do select a girl and just inform your parents.They have no choice and you get married.Now the dream gets doubled with your wife's included compulsorily.Then your kids come from your efforts in entertaining yourself.The dreams now are so big,you will forget or miss-plan,your efforts increase,so also the demands form sources you were responsible one way or the other.What are your dreams at this stage.?May be if you are lucky your dreams come true.So why not dream.?Now I dream knowing it's too late as my life's mission is complete and am considered as Excess Baggage.But still no harm in dreaming it's not being greedy or not contented with whatever that I got,when unwanted dreams come why not dream wanted dreams.The picture is my dream though.

[ My Home 9.]

The other day I was sitting in my Veranda looking at the garden looked after by my wife and thinking of how to put a fountain in the middle of the lawn when a young man came and stood in front of my home.The conversation went like this:-
Me- Hello who are you.?
He- Sir,I am from the Cell phone Tower Company.
Me- What do you want.?
He- I want to check your Home for Pillers.
Me- We do not have pillers.
He- O K Sir,I will just take a reading.
Me- What reading.?
He- GPS Reading.
Me- How do you do that.?
He- This GPS Tracker - Sir, he said and pulled out a Cell phone like instrument and did some settings on the dials provided and told me that My Home is located at:-
North - 12.97815 latitude
East - 077.549 longitude.
He said the meter is also showing that my home is 1.6 Kilometers from the other point which was his Base Point for location of any new Towers.The instrument he said is connected to a satellite and would show MY Home's distance on land from any place on Earth by setting on the instrument the readings that were shown at the place at MY HOME.
So I got one more ID for my home other than those that I mentioned in my 'MY HOME' postings.
I forgot to note the name of the instrument or ask him any question on the instrument,I just took the reading on my pad and was happy with the New ID for MY HOME.

[ Let Ganesha Bless you on this day.]

A life-like clay model of Lord Ganesha is made 2-3 months prior to the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The size of this idol may vary from 3/4th of an inch to over 25 feet.On the day of the festival, it is placed on raised platforms in homes or in elaborately decorated outdoor tents for people to view and pay their homage. The priest, usually clad in red silk dhoti and shawl, then invokes life into the idol amidst the chanting of mantras. This ritual is the pranapratishhtha. After this the shhodashopachara (16 ways of paying tribute) follows. Coconut, jaggery, 21 modakas (rice flour preparation) , 21 durva (trefoil) blades and red flowers are offered. The idol is anointed with red unguent (rakta chandan). Throughout the ceremony, Vedic hymns from the Rig Veda and Ganapati Atharva Shirsha Upanishad, and Ganesha stotra from the Narada Purana are chanted.

For 10 days, from Bhadrapad Shudh Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi, Ganesha is worshipped.

On the 11th day, the image is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of all man. All join in this final procession shouting “Ganapathi Bappa Morya, Purchya Varshi Laukariya” (O father Ganesha, come again early next year). After the final offering of coconuts, flowers and camphor is made, people carry the idol to the river to immerse it.The whole community comes to worship Ganesha in beautifully done tents. These also serve as the venue for free medical checkup, blood donation camps, charity for the poor, dramatic performances, films, devotional songs, etc. During the days of the festival.

Swami Sivananda Recommends
On the Ganesh Chaturthi day, meditate on the stories connected with Lord Ganesha early in the morning, during the Brahmamuhurta period. Then, after taking a bath, go to the temple and do the prayers of Lord Ganesha. Offer Him some coconut and sweet pudding. Pray with faith and devotion that He may remove all the obstacles that you experience on the spiritual path. Worship Him at home, too. You can get the assistance of a pundit. Have an image of Lord Ganesha in your
House. Feel His Presence in it.

Don’t forget not to look at the moon on that day; remember that it behaved unbecomingly towards the Lord. This really means avoid the company of all those who have no faith in God, and who deride God, your Guru and religion, from this very day.

Take fresh spiritual resolves and pray to Lord Ganesha for inner spiritual strength to attain success in all your undertakings.

May the blessings of Sri Ganesha be upon you all! May He remove all the obstacles that stand in your spiritual path! May He bestow on you all material prosperity as well as liberation!
Happy Independence Day to all my Blogger s in INDIA.

[ PC PROBLEMS.]

Just keeping a Computer and trying to learn by yourself may look like a electric typewriter with special features.The option like editing and deleting words and even sentences makes us forget the use of correction pen that is used in documents and on type writer machines.Only on the looks of the keypad things look familiar.People who are using a computer know how much they know of this wonder machine.The painting is the same you can't make out what it is.

[ My Home - 7 .]

My Home has a number not one but two.
Why two for one Home.?
One for Post Office.
One for Property ID.
With out the property ID you cannot get anything from the Electricity or Water and Sewage Connections.
You cannot pay the Tax on your property with out the Property ID.
There are other numbers also like your phone number of Land Line,Mobile Phone number,Your Car Registration number,one more is the page number and serial number on the voters list.If you do not know these numbers you cannot cast your vote.Here it's magic.Just wait for the elections to come and you will be provided with these numbers on your door step freely,even without your asking.The candidates who stands for election have volunteers coming to your doors with their mouth wide open smiling and deliver this number.It's the other way for Slum dwellers who have no property ID nor they pay property tax but get paid on these election days with their voter page number and serial number along with some crisp sounding paper.We are supposed to vote once after 4 years but that does not happen.Some part of the country is in election mode every year.They say it's our Democratic way of life.This is Incredible India.
Now we have Mr.Nandan Nilekani as the Chairperson of Unique ID Authority of India and he will allot another number like perhaps your credit card number which you can never remember as you will have more than one card or less than 6 cards.Credit cards have only numbers unlike your PAN card which has English alphabets sprinkled in between numbers.I don't know how it's in USA there no one tells even how many numbers in their number.The other numbers which are many and for which you have a diary maintained and look up when needed.

[ My Home - 6.]

What else could be my home was my question in My Home - 5.


Holy Cow,I almost forgot that Bangalore is My Home
.

I was born here.

I got married here to a Bangalore girl.

My first Son was born here.

And:

It was in Bangalore that I completed my full education up to pre University earlier called during our time as Intermediate University education of two year duration to enter any professional course.Any of the courses required a minimum of 40% marks in all the subjects for admission and 35% for a pass.This was not possible for me.So I entered a undergraduate course and took a Diploma in Textile Technology and secured a Govt of India scholarship for on hand compulsory training in the textile mill for six months to secure a Diploma certificate on completion of training. I was allotted one of the largest group of mills in Asia at Madura as I was the second best student of the 3 and half year course.I had to leave My Home Bangalore for the next forty years of my life,except for a year's honey moon in Mysore Mills now a Mighty huge Apartment Complex.The Mill provided jobs now it's space provides Flats.
Jai Ho N T C for this conversion

My Home is not only the place where I have a own roof over my head but the city that mesmerizes and fascinates with a unique flavor you can never get anywhere in our country.
Even the President of
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
knows BANGALORE.

[ My Home - 5.]

Where is your house my old friend who met me at a meeting I attended asked me,I gave him my card and told him here is my home.
How can my home be in my card,that was not what my friend asked.
Oh,you a Ex MD of a textile mill he shot back.
I just smiled and he also smiled and he said you a blogger too.
I nodded my head and he asked me what else do I do.
Now I reminded him that he wanted to know where is my home.
Oh yes I know this place,I called a auto and told him to take me to my home since he knew where it was.
I sat in the auto and told him to get in,we were 5 KM away from my home and it was just 20 minutes ride,my friend could not locate my house even after 45 minutes.
In Bangalore it's not that easy to locate any place ( a home of course ) if you do not know how to go from one place to another.
Even those of my friends who do know my home come only on a function and do not visit frequently.
How to make any one to locate your home.?
Land Mark.My Home needs a land mark.
No problem I followed my instinct and created a Google Map which I propose to print in my Card once the present card gets exhausted.
So my home is a Google dot.
What else can my home be,?

[ Gosai Ghat - If she could swim.]

This is a beauty spot where films are shot or shooting is done.River Kaveri flows gently inviting you to take a dip if you are a swimmer as otherwise it is a risk with no crowd around for help in case you need.The water also is better than other places of the river in and around SriRangaPatana 15 K M from MYSORE.I wanted to know who was the Gosai and where he lived to a lone aged river supervisor,he said the word Gosai means Sanyasi and that it is not the name of any individual,more than 300 years ago Gosai's from North India Kashi ( Varanasi)were here and they had stayed here after building the temple of Kasi Visweswars and Sri.Parvathi and went away after Tipu had come to SriRangaPatana.There are other interesting spots here and they are,Tipu's summer Palace,Tipu's family burial site,Sangam where the Kaveri Joins and the most holy temple of Goddess Sree Nimishamba.

[ Madur Vada.]



I was born here where for over a century this 'Madur Vada' was born.Our Present Minister for Foreign Affairs was also born here.
This is a small town you get if you go by road or train and for all travelers on this route this Vada is a must to eat and enjoy the crisp bite.
The Govt transport bus stops only here for all to have their Tea,Coffee or meals with this Vada to go with.
Recently a new eatery has come up which is clean and well kept at this Bus Stand.
I do not know about the Railway Station as it's or it was LaLu controlled all these years.
The Present Railway Minister may prefer Rasgola for Vada.
We have to dance to the tune of this shameless Ministers and the Railway officials who have spoiled our train to Mysore in not providing us with a/c coaches or fast trains a distance of 130 KM with out a single traffic jam or a road Hump can be traveled in our Maruti 800 in One and half hours but the train takes 4 to 5 hours.
Even by road with over a dozen traffic jams and nearly a hundred road Bumps or Humps or Road Breaks takes 2 hours in small cars,my Maruti Alto.

[ My Chocolate & Cacao,it's benifits.]


Cacao and chocolate was widely used by ancient civilisations as currency and was seen as a 'food for the gods.'


Early colonial records indicate how cacao was used as a medicine and acted as a carrier in the administration of other remedies in the 1500's. The medicinal value of cacao was in its ability to treat weak patients with a variety of dis-ease. It was particularly known to improve digestion and stimulate kidney and bowel function. Additional diseases that responded to treatment using cacao was anaemia, fatigue, fever, low sex drive, respiratory troubles, poor appetite and low breat milk production. In addition to the cacao bean, the oil/butter was used in the treatment of skin problems including eczema, psoriasis and burns. Today, cacao oil is considered a beauty aid in its use as a skin moisturizer, lubricating agent and when combined with the cacao bean, is used to make the chocolate confectionery we're familiar with. All chocolate is derived from the cacao bean/seeds. Nicknamed 'black gold' by the Spanish, it's no mystery that chocolate continues to captivate our taste buds with its rich bittersweet dance on our palette.

With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao is one of the most complex and pleasurably satisfying foods on the planet. In its raw form, cacao contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), neurotransmitters that stimulate and balance brain activity, tryptophan (an anti-depressant), antioxidants and other beneficial compounds known to have rejuvenating and anti-ageing elements. Cacao is high in the mineral magnesium, essential for helping the heart to pump blood efficiently, building strong bones, and lowering blood pressure. In fact, the strong desire for chocolate during the female menstrual cycle may be related to cravings for magnesium, a mineral with calming qualities. Cacao is a good source of the beauty mineral sulphur, responsible for healthy skin, nails and hair. In todays culture, chocolate is used as a gift for occasions such as St Valentines Day, Easter, Birthdays and Christmas etc. Many of us are likely to consume a little chocolate everyday for its mood boosting effects in an attempt to escape from the stress of working life. Chocolate satiates our appetite for pleasure like no other substance. Is it any wonder that 50% of women prefer chocolate to sex? The portability and availability of chocolate makes it the perfect private pleasure to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

With the revival of films like 'Charlie and The Chocolate Factory' and 'Le Chocolat', chocolate lovers everywhere got to indulge their fantasies, inspired by the film industry. It's safe to say that Johnny Depp and Chocolate create a unique and compatible partnership most women would be happy to personally explore! Yes, chocolate and sex go hand in hand and when packaged in shiny red and gold, make a highly attractive and stimulating friend no one wants to be without.

A symbol of sensuality, any male suitor is wise to offer a gift of chocolate to any prospective female; a delightful box of dark edibles all wrapped in decorative gold foil will put a smile on any chocolate-loving females face. Cacao has always been associated with fertility and love by indigenous cultures.

The versatility of chocolate has allowed us to expand our repertoire of how we can engage ourselves with its intense flavours and textures. From mouth-watering rich cream gateaux to the velvety texture in truffles, there is nothing we can't do with chocolate; it inspires us to create more and more mouth-watering variations to satisfy our appetite. In fact, one can devote one's whole life to becoming a chocolate 'creative' of distinction.

Chocolate will always be an affordable luxury that almost anyone can indulge regardless of class or stature. We can all taste what the Aztecs and Mayans tasted and we will always be grateful for their cultivation of the revered and sacred cacao bean. Long may we continue our passionate, blissful affair with this divine gift from the cacao tree.

[ My Temple - At Srirangapatana.]


Having found my school it was not a task for me sitting in a taxi to find my temple.The only problem was the taxi driver who went on cursing silently as I went on giving him directions 360 deg and not finding the temple even though it was just visible to us.Finally we zeroed on the place to find that it was closed for the priest to have his lunch and perhaps his siesta at noon so we said our prayers that is me and my husband.
It was so near that there would be no problem to go again.
My husband asked me what was it I was asking God during my visit to temples,I told him that it was just not possible for me to remember but one thing for sure it was always to ask God to make my task easy in all my exam papers to answer properly and see I pass in my exams.
Here is that temple I saw finally.
I hope to visit this temple again to see Lord Eswara & Parvathi at this holy place Srirangapatana.

[ My School - It was Tipu Sultan's warehouse office.]



It was by my compulsion so often that I made my husband take me to the famous Town of SriRangaPatana 15 KM from Mysore towords Bangalore.He did take me there and we did find the school that was once the officees of the Ware House that stored food items for Tipu Sultan's army inside the fort surrounded by river Kaveri which took a deviation at one point and joined at another about a KM away.The school I did remember was having a big compond but that was not there and there was no girl's school as old as 50 years in any place except this deserted building which was the only place that was a girl's school 50 years back.The school was shifted from the ware house office to the ware house as the Heritage Building was neglected by our monopolistic Archelogical Survey Of India known as ASI( Always Sleeping Indians) of our country.They are sleeping becouse they do not know what to do there being a Heritage Site every 100 KM in our country and our politicians have the gaint country's problem to see to besides their siblings future and indeed to their own.It was in this school around 50+years ago I studied my primary education for a short period a stop gap befour my daddy could get a transfer and we got relocated to a big city for my further studies.Oh my school building let some body renovate it.
I am A.N.Sharada at this school a 6 year old girl.

[ Gayatri Mantra.]

The ancient Mantras that heal
ॐ भूर्भुवस्वः ।
तत् सवितुर्वरेण्यं ।
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि ।
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥
The Gayatri Mantra is the most revered mantra in Hinduism. It consists of the prefix :oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ ॐ भूर्भुवस्वः, a formula taken from the Yajurveda, and the verse 3.62.10 of the Rigveda (which is an example of the Gayatri meter). Since all the other three Vedas contain much material rearranged from the Rig Veda, the Gayatri mantra is found in all the four Vedas. The deva invoked in this mantra is Savitar, and hence the mantra is also called Sāvitrī.


Ever wondered what is the significance or importance of Mantra. or the sacred ancient vedic hymns?? Were they like 'keys' that would unlock the sacred pathway leading to a world beyond the unseen? Lets try to get some answers using scientific and ancient wisdom -

There are all kinds of frequencies and vibrations all around us. There are frequencies we see (such as light waves), hear (sound waves), or feel, and others that are beyond our ability to sense, such as gamma rays, infrared, or radio and television frequencies. In fact, the ancient Vedic texts of India explain, in summary, that this whole universe is the production or manifestation from particular vibrations that cause a change from the spiritual energy into the material energy. And all these frequencies effect us in many ways. For example, we may hear music that can be soothing and peaceful, or that is abrasive and irritating. Or there may be frequencies that we have to deal with on a more regular basis, like the noise we hear when working in a factory, or the sounds of downtown traffic.

Walk through a factory. The noise and vibrational level of the frequencies that you hear and feel are not attractive. In fact, they may be damaging to your hearing and necessitate the need for wearing ear plugs. Being around that kind of noise, which are lower vibrations of themselves, can make you restless or agitated in due time, tend to pull your consciousness down in a way that makes you think in very basic terms. They can make your mind become absorbed in the lower modes of thinking, like simply desiring to satisfy your senses, wanting to go to the bar after work to drown your thoughts, or thinking of whatever will give you the easiest thrill. In other words, exposure to low vibrations tends to produce low consciousness simply by your exposure to them. Let's explain this a little more..

The science of vibrations and frequencies and how they effect people is something that has been around for thousands of years. We can still find evidence of this in the ancient Vedic texts of India. These explain not only the results of using the frequencies of words and mantras, but also supply instructions in some cases. The sages of ancient India used it to produce various results in the rituals they performed, and from the mantras they would recite. If the mantras were recited in particular ways, certain amazing results would take place, including changing the weather, producing certain types of living beings, or even palaces. Others used it to produce weapons, like the brahmashtra weapon, which was equal to the modern nuclear bombs. Specific mantras could be attached to arrows, with the sound causing powerful explosions when the arrow reached its target. Others used the science of vibrations to bring their consciousness to higher levels of perception, or to enter spiritual reality.

We can see the results of exposure to certain frequencies in other ways as well. Even now there has been research that has provided discoveries on the use of frequencies. They have worked with plants, exposing them to various kinds of music. Plants would thrive when exposed to classical music, while they would languish or wither when around heavy rock music. However, considering the nature of the mostly unenlightened society in which we live, some of these discoveries have not been for the benefit of the world and are quite scary to think of the results that may happen.

There has been proved to be a psycho-physiologica l sensitivity in animals and humans to magnetic and electrical fields in extremely low frequencies (ELF) corresponding to brain waves. These ELF, which can penetrate anything, have made it possible for the military to have a world-wide communication system with its submarines, which can be situated in any part of the world.

Man is a bio-cosmic transducer, a transmitter and receiver as well, and that somehow our brain waves can lock on and modulate with the earth's electromagnetic field, the Universal Magnetic Field (UMF), as Tesla called it. Research has shown that altering these electro magnetic fields can influence the brain waves of cats and monkeys. Humans are also affected.

Anything above eleven hertz produces a general range of agitation and discontent. High voltage power lines throw off 50 to 60 hertz, and there's been concern about what they can do to people who live near them. Some feel that such lines, or even the use of such items as electric blankets, can cause cancer because of the unnatural magnetic field to which the body is exposed. Researchers have concluded that humans are electrical people. For example, our hearts can start or stop due to appropriate electrical impulses. The use of pacemakers is an example of helping maintain a steady heartbeat. Thus, electro magnetic radiation could be the most harmful pollutant in our society. There is strong evidence that cancer and other diseases can be triggered by electromagnetic waves.

There are machines that use frequencies for beneficial use. There is a medical device called a Multiple Wave Oscillator, first developed by a French researcher and improved by solid state electronics. It used a miniature Tesla system consisting of two copper coils. When activated, a magnetic field is generated between the two coils and the frequencies can be adjusted for the electricity that flowed from one coil to the other.. The result is multiple waves of inherently good frequencies to help heal various parts of the body. Sore knees or torn muscles can be placed inside the magnetic fields for a few minutes at a time, helping it to heal much faster than with conventional methods.

Researchers have found that frequencies under seven hertz create a general feeling of relaxation and well being, known as the alpha state. The most beneficial frequency on earth is said to be the 6.8 hertz frequency. Interestingly, the Pyramid at Giza has a constant frequency of 6.8 hertz running through it. Although researchers have studied it, they don't know where it comes from or why in such an ancient structure. The Nadha Brahmam "Ohm" or "ॐ" or in Modern terminology Schumman resonance has a close significance Aum corresponds to the strongest of the schuman resonance among all other bio magnetic fields. We can relate the seven different chakras in body to these sounds and also with Schumann Resonances of earth, ie, 7.83, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39 and 45 Hertz of earth. We all know 7.83 hz being the strongest of all.

ॐ - 7.83Hz
Gam - 14hz
Hleem - 20Hz
Hreem - 26Hz
Kleem - 33Hz
Krowm - 39Hz
Sreem - 45Hz

This points to the idea that the ancients knew the importance of frequencies and how to use them in order to provide an atmosphere for attaining a peaceful state of mind for entering higher states of consciousness and perception of spiritual reality. The use of yoga has utilized this principle for as long as it had been known--many hundreds of years. Concentrating on the steady breathing, as in hatha-yoga, is a means of leveling and harmonizing the electrical impulses of the body and the beating of the heart. Invoking the alpha state by a natural means allows one to also reach a vibrational state in which the consciousness can enter higher levels of being and perception. The body is not only conducting the more balanced frequencies, but it begins to generate them as well. It is as if the body and mind are creating its own atmosphere in which it can further its more spiritual development, with or without the proper atmosphere around it. Building structures, like the pyramids and pyramid-like temples, which are common in such places as India and Central America, may provide the assistance for doing that, along with the physical exercises of yoga and the use of prayers, mantras, or rituals. By implementing such things on a regular basis in one's life, it would increase one's peaceful existence, bring about a higher state of consciousness, and insights into a level of reality beyond ordinary sense perception. In other words, it would naturally take one closer to the Truth of our existence. It would, as Tesla was hoping, bring the peace that would come from a natural consequence of universal enlightenment

A key point in this regard is the ancient use of mantras, as already mentioned earlier. Not only could certain results be attained by the proper use of vibrations in sounds, but even today the use of particular mantras are known for calming the mind, lowering blood pressure, relieving one from unnecessary anxieties by changing one's focus in life, and so on. It is also understood that certain mantras and prayers, such as the chanting of the spiritual names of God, bring to one the transcendental vibration of the spiritual world from where it comes. This means it is like a conductor, bringing the spiritual energy and frequencies that come from the transcendental strata.

Thus, by absorbing one's consciousness in the sound vibration of these names of God, it will do several things, such as alter and improve the electrical impulses that are generated by the body, and help defend oneself from the negative impulses that one may encounter. In this way, it helps create a peaceful attitude within the individual and a healthier disposition. It also prepares one's consciousness for perceiving higher levels of reality, opens one up to the spiritual world, gradually reveals one's true spiritual identity, which would also allow one to see the unity between all people. It also harmonizes one's existence with nature, and even begins to rekindle one's real relationship with the Supreme Soul, God. Once the higher vibration of the spiritual realm is invoked on a regular basis in this way, and is opened for its use among the people in general, the chances for world change become enormous.

Naturally, this may not happen immediately. One needs to be able to concentrate on those spiritual sounds appropriately. . This means to rid oneself of the clutter in one's mind. Only by purely focusing on the sound of the holy names can one truly feel its power, and open its potential. This is why there is a need for living a simple and honest life, and developing sincerity and devotion. It makes such a difference in being able to focus on the chanting of these spiritual prayers and mantras with feeling. Then one gives up that clutter which gets in the way of truly hearing the sounds and allows them to have a deep affect on one's life. That is when the deep changes and insights can begin to take place. When the general masses of people begin to participate in this process, that is when the collective vibrations around the world can begin to bring social changes that will help lead all people to a higher and more peaceful state of being. The general frequencies that we generate and receive will then naturally be of a harmonious and spiritual nature.

[ Try Test Your Right Foot.]

Interesting...



Try This.

HOW SMART IS YOUR RIGHT FOOT ?

You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds. I could not believe this!

It is from an orthopaedic surgeon..... This will confuse your mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It is pre-programmed in your brain!

1. While sitting in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

I told you so! And there's nothing you can do about it!

[ Beijing not Bangalore.]

We in Bangalore viewed our News on NDTV as usual and Breaking News it was the President of United States of America speaking that companys creating Jobs in Bangalore would pay higher taxes than those who created Jobs in Buffolow.
He could have added Beijing but he was perhaps advised not to say so.Today's News paper say that for America Outsourcing will prove 50% dearer for US cos and Mr.Obama's Tax plan will Act as a Dampener.
The News paper further said 'Indian firms will gain'.
The IT industry in Bangalore believes President Obama,despite his tough talk,cannot stop the reality of outsourcing.Politics has a lot to do with this
'Bangalore torpedo'.One CEO even said the President's move smacks of US arrogance.
US cos will have to outsource as the man power needed will be an issue in US.
Regardless of whether the Tax is levied or not,US companies will have to outsource to remain globally competitive.
Bangalore will have to worry about Beijing as China is gearing itself to overtake
the outsourcing in the next couple of years.

[ My Home - 4 ]

This is "My Home".

Where can you find the house full of Books which is left by my children who have studied from LKG to graduation,their books kept well secured in shelf's,copies of various articles,letters from various universities,their files of all sorts,their photos from kids to parenting and their kid in Blogs,Videos and innumerable artifacts of their childhood.
All items stored and if possible labeled.Arranged in all shapes and forms to almost resemble like a junk to a stranger.
Their college Final year project reports in safe custody of their mother,who went after them from kindergarten to college and felt happy that her efforts were well rewarded by their success in full education required for a firm footing in the corporate world.
The Motorbikes that were used by them is stored for ever.
Their clothes from diapers to Wedding dress kept in steel cupboard or trunks.
The computer left here and on which I am writing all my 5 Blogs since over 7 years. The Music system and World space radio parked here.
Their Maruti Alto car which we are using.
The Saree's of my daughter which she may never wear are used by My wife.
Their kitchen and furniture left behind in My Home when they left the country.
They are all looking at us,My Wife and Myself keep talking to each other as to how on earth these things could be replaced.
When they visit us all they have left all that they were using is a Junk according to them.To me they are my sweet memories.
All this and many more left in " My Home ".
My Home is a place where I have the freedom to do what ever I feel like doing,mostly sitting depressed before the PC Monitor and gazing at some web site,Blogging this and that in textiles,reading,visiting my room upstairs to renovate the paintings that I have done in the past and of course eating.
There is nobody except my wife to tell me something which I may do or I refuse to do.Mostly I do what ever she says though.
I keep calling my old friends over phone and chat for few minutes which won't be more than ten minutes.
Strangly most of my friends avoid to talk to our common friends.
When I asked my friend as to why he is not calling our common friend'X' his reply was he is not calling why on earth I should bother.
Some times I feel,that it is such a nice idea to just walk away with my wife and keep "My Home" locked.
Easyly said than done no one can do it in a city like Bangalore.If at all you return you may not find your sweet home.
You are in your Home,you call "My Home",till you go to your Home from where you came from that Home.
This is My Home Sweet Home.
My Brother has kept many things of My Home or "My Fathers Home"in his Home as he stayed in one place after the death of my parents,while I had to travel with bag and baggage all over south India and Maharashtra.I did not opt for anything since I considered that what belonged to me is as good as his since he was my only younger brother,My sisters never bothered over anything,since their husbands could afford anything.
My Home,Your Home,Their Home,That Home,This Home but all have come from One Home from some where.
That is "Our Home".
That is also "My Home".

[ My Home - 3.]

I should say Our Home and not my
home because here my family lives and
not me alone.
Having said that my children are living
separately and they are not living in
my country.
They have their home and this My Home
they still
can call My Home or our home.
I don't know what they wish to call
My Home or Our Home.
They did say you have your Home and
we will have our Home.
So what have we Got.?
Now we have how may My Homes.
1 )My Son's Home.
2 )My Daughter's Home.
3 )My Daughter in law's Home,which is
also my Son's Home.
4 )My Son in law's Home,which is
also my Daughters Home.
They all go by the common name My Home.
Which is the Home Common to all Homes,
it's My Home.
The Home where all of us were
living except my Son in Law.
My Son in law used to visit us,
I mean my Daughter frequently.
My Daughter in law was visiting us
I mean my Son for many years,
lived with us for few years,were
in love secretively and my
Daughter in law married my son
or the other way.and were Gone
soon after marriage living my
daughter,my wife and me
and they left to seek
their future else where and
are living happily in their Home.
My Daughters marriage was also
similar but slightly different in the
sense my Son in law was not
staying with us.He had his Home.
He visited us very rarely but
was working in the same company
as my Daughter's.
My Home is the place where all
of us were parking our self
with out a parking fee.
My Home is therefore a place
of past memory as they all have
left some memento and that
you can't find it in their home.
We visited their Home and sure
we have left our memento their,
that would be Just the Guest Room
we stayed,which they can say
our parents stayed in this
room when they visited Our Home.
When I say Come to My Home
it carries so many hidden memories.
Sweetest hard to forget memories.

[ Who will be Our next PM.Comment of a indiblogger.

मैं समझता हूं कि मायावती बनेगी।

एक कहानी याद आ गई, शायद पंचतंत्र की है। दो बिल्लियों को रोटी का टुकड़ा मिला, पर वे झगड़ने लगे कि किसे उसका कितना हिस्सा मिलेगा। वे मध्यस्थ करने एक बंदर के पास गए। बंदर ने पहले रोटी को दो टुकड़ों में फाड़ा, एक बड़ा एक छोटा। फिर बड़े में से एक बहुत बड़ा हिस्सा मुंह से काटकर खुद खा गया। अब पहले का बड़ा टुकड़ा छोटा हो गया। बंदर ने अब पहले के छोटे टुकड़े में से एक बहुत बड़ा टुकड़ा खा लिया... इस तरह सारी रोटी बंदर ही खा गया और बिल्लियों को कछ न मिला।

बिल्लियों की जगह कांग्रेस और भाजपा पढ़ें, और बंदर की जगह भासपा, तो बात आपको समझ में आ जाएगी।

मायावती यदि 60-70 सीटें जीत जाएं, तो उन्हें प्रधानमंत्री बनने से कोई नहीं रोक पाएगा। और लगता यही है कि उन्हें इतनी सीटें जरूर मिल जाएंगी।

कांग्रेस या भाजपा के पास इस बार कोई दमदार चुनावी मुद्दा नहीं है। उनके गठबंधन बिखर गए हैं। और मायावती उनकी गलतियों का खूब लाभ उठा रही है।

वरुण को द्वेषपूर्ण भाषण देने के लिए रासुका के तहत जेल भेज देना मायावती का मास्टरस्ट्रोक था। इससे मायावती तुरंत मुसलमानों का मसीहा बन गई और समाजवादी पार्टी से मुसलमानों को अपनी ओर खींच लाने में कामयाब हुई।

समाजवादी पार्टी अब तक मुसलमानों का मसीहा बताता घूम रहा था, पर कल्याण सिंह को अपनी पार्टी में शामिल करके उसके इस दावा का खोखलापन लोगों को स्पष्ट हो गया है। इसलिए मुसलमान पहले से ही समाजवादी पार्टी से खिन्न चले आ रहे थे।

मायावती ने दलित-ब्राह्मण-मुसलमान का एक विजयी तिकोन बना लिया है, और अधिकांश दलितों की मंशा भी यही है कि अब की बार देश का प्रधान मंत्री उन्हीं में से कोई हो। पासवान की तुलना में उन्हें मायवती के जीतने की संभावना ज्यादा नजर आ रही है, इसलिए मायावती को खूब वोट मिलेंगे, और संभवतः वह दिल्ली जीत सकेगी।

आपकी क्या राय है?

[ My Home - 2 ]

It's not that my father did not leave
his home to his children
that I have made a Home.
There are more reasons than that,
my Job was not a secure Job.
Though I did resign several times
and was never thrown out by any employer,
my worry was where do I keep
my Wife and Kids if I were to be
thrown out from a Job,if that should
happen,I was very confident of
getting another Job but that
involved traveling to all the textile
capitols of the country and it
was just impossible to do that.
The need for a Home was therefore
a necessity and not a do or die question.
Even assuming that this was not
going to happen there was another
question of where to go on long
summer holidays when my kids would
want to visit Bangalore first and
all others if they ever want,
to go next, as all the action
was in Bangalore for them.
All Friends,Relatives,
my parents in law,very dear
to my son(my daughter was
still a baby),The Cinema Theaters,
The Restaurants,The Shopping
Centers at Brigade Road and
Commercial Street being most
sought after,Our family's
favorite "West End"
later it was "TAJ WEST END".
Everything at Bangalore.
Therefore I needed our own
Home and could not
stay in any relative's or
my F i l 's place,not that we
were unwelcome in any place
it was my attitude.
So where do I stay.
I wanted "MY HOME"
It's not all that is there
to me,there is more
than that to call a place,"MY HOME".

[ I am worried Maya.]




Maya went
back to her
home just
under
two months.
She sees us
through
Skype
over
internet
and smiles.
We do not
know if she
remembers us.
We feel she
recognizes
us because
she smiles.
It is hard to know that
she knows us as her
someone she has seen.
She smiles many times
at many things.
We have seen her smile
at children playing in
the street.
She smiles even at the
flowers in our garden.
Most fascinating was
her smile with the group
of street Dogs ever
present here,
in front of our house.
It is hard to know if
she remembers us
because of her smile
over internet on her Dad's
presented 19 inch
ViewSonic Monitor.
Whatever be the
cause of her smile,
it gladdens our heart.
There is a worry
if she remembers us.
No one can tell.
No power can say,let alone God.
He never speaks though.
