Day in Day out

Days are passing like seconds and so much queued up to do.
First thing in this week I do was to attend international cartoon exhibition .It was on mobile misusage and mobile mishaps .Cartoons were really cool.One goes like this : Baby inside mothers womb trying to reach mother but all lines are busy .Little harsh but caricature had done well done job. Along with it they put one voting panel for telling best worst design .This means according to user what they find worst design done by supplier .One was auto where people don't know whether its occupied or not .We dropped our suggestions for best Not best UI we think.
Later in week i been to mithila painting exhibition held by aunt I know.As per my teammate it was little deviated from authentic mithila painting .It was a mixture of madhubani painting and her own innovation. Aunty follows same mediation as mine so I could correlate some of its feature .Some painting were on ganesh who is source of primordial energy .As per old epics our left side govern by sun and right by moon but on our head side they exchange their places ,anuty had done one painting on it.Aunty made great effort to show all basics of meditation through them. One in charged person over their told us there are two types of paintings one classical and one called distributed art. Wherein artist have to draw according some soothing qualities in mind .To put positive vibes in your house .There was one painting to give you satisfaction feeling and one to give focus and concentration.
Friday I been to French film festival organized by hyderabad movie club to promote some documentory .Movie was "Flaura " means love and it said Country no barrier language no barrier for love. Nicely synchronized events and portrayed fact like there is no one is perfect and Love is not about getting perfect match but all about meeting someone understands you well.
Todays play was on hamlet parody .It was more interactive drama with audiance.Great deal was I made up my mind to read hamlet.

Rock - Documentory : I still remember my first visit in Hyderabad, No trees, no Birds ,Rocks just rocks .That time I didn’t like Hyderabad much for rocks but after attending one-two meetings by this organization I understood great natural heritage gifted to hyderabad. It has given shinny edge appearance to horizon of hyderabad during sunset and Art in its most authentic form. Rock’s structures are their to admire and stare Long , feel them feel tranquility they possess ,Ornamented by strength and stability that have achieved global reorganization on plane .Support each other was theme found dominating in them . Support by whole side or just by single point (amazingly balanced).

Rock height in collaboration with “save Rock “ organization organized painting and photo exhibition accompanied by small documentary on rocks. Now let me elaborate their message through that small but far visional documentary of struggle to preserve heritage we posses and our carelessness may loose it all .It starts with all special structure formed of rocks by nature .Hyderabad as you all know was cursed by earthquake long back (whole centre part of India) and that’s how Indian deccan formed so basically hyderabd is a big victim of nature calamity ,survived and got these rocking blessings .
What is the significance of ROcks ?
Ya there is a lot according to aesthetic people .
To talk in terms of beauty ,The natural erosion process has shaped them in huge enormous sculpture with variety of emotions depicted seamlessly which no human can do.Many artist has inspired by these Solid existence eg. Two elongated little tilted rocks made one artist think and form painting called "Family system" .Nicely made painting with amazing articulations and hopes depicted.
All team involved in this movie been to different parts of india to capture diverse forms of rocks and to my surprised weather its small or huge all what they found in them is art eg. Rock with bushes on top and exact centered crack got visualized as “ Black ocean with green fountain”.
After seeing it and their description i could also find sense of beauty in rocks.
Will attach one rock near my office who has giant elephant shape ,proper ear trunk and eyes. I have proud feeling but at the same time shameful to see such a great art near but unrecognized .
While going to office I could see chain of rock which actually according to me chained up to protect TCS with their rough and tough shoulders. Cool example of fortification.
Documentary also talks about art admiring people who has kept rock part untouch inside their houses to have natural look.
Last but not least “they are not lifeless rocks but life giving rocks”.
They give shelter to many gypsies, shadow to commuter and by cutting them people do earn some money, Which is not fair .Lot many rocks has been chopped off for human profit, now time to save them and lets our children just not have memories and snaps of them to see and we with captured image in our brain cache. Lets next generation understand art and its importance .

A for Ads , B for Bitter Ads

Now lets see Dabar chawanprash add where amitabh is asking kid's mother to undergo his lifestyle and understand stress he experiencing . After that conclusion was kid needs extra energy so obvious choice is Dabar chavanprash . Best part is end of add .where amitabh is asking her whether she wants to go under her husband’s lifestyle too ? Seriously why only kid and his father needs extra . What about his mother ? is she not worth having extra nutrition? House wife ya working woman all woman does 10 time more tasks than any other man and undergoes far more tension .She is pillar of house too monetarily or by managing house holds she is doing remarkable job still no attention to her health.
Add end should be like “All who does hard work needs it.” Top of that Dr degree achiever , charmer of all time amitabh whose each and every action been watched ,thoughts influencing thousands of janata ,he is ideal for everyone and he does this type of ads . ridiculous. This add is not that bitter to digest but still consciously or unconsciously it is boosting Indian mentality of male domination and chauvinism. System always ignore and take for granted effort woman takes in her life.
All celebrities should choose ads on moral ground .Prior to taking up assignment they should at least find its validity and impact on mass. whole public loves you. they follow you blindly that’s there love for you and trust in you. Deceptive ads are not beneficial for you nor for them So be responsible and show your respect towards their love .

Second add of shampoo where groom side demands for complete expenses of marriage from bride. Astonished by her silky hairs they think she is spending all her money on shampoo. Happily that gal says: “haan maine salary bacchake rakhi hain shadi ke liye “ so foolish. Is she gone insane ? One earning gal is going to join them after marriage in bonus they will have so much advantages still demanding for complete marriage expenses. Its like asking dowry indirectly. I hate this add for unworthy downgrading gal’s attitude and Society’s attitude to squeeze bride side with extravagance demands.

Third there are many in this category ,all fair and lovely brands . Ads like this rejecting gal on her color and happily accepting her again for her fairness .bullshit. More important all ads’s heroes are worst than gal they expecting to marry. That stupid gal happily goes under all torture becomes fair and marry same idiot .
I can see these days theme has changed a bit from marriage to different professions requirement. little progress I’ll say. Still why not this too happen on talent and her attitude rather than color . Why not black beauty serve air lines .Let her charm play magic and her hard work please customer .Fashion industry also have appreciated black beauty Malika arrora for her amazing talent and this add agency wala’s still showing demand of fair and glowing gals.
Thanx to fair and handsome add some shanti to my heart .
How ads should be if you ask me then my answer ‘ll be Ads should be logical like happy dent white and more customary . Last but not least fairness is not judging criteria still emphasizing on such a trivial attribute is wastage of time , energy and talent.

False Impression

Really Really i had false impression about this book. Famous author like jeffrey archer and such a straight forward weak story line ,surely disappointing.
Whole stretch of my reading I could predict all detective moves and hidden secrets of story .I do agree there were some twist and turns in story , sprinkle of suspense and spice with untouched romance but Entire plot was so simple that no point in story I jumped out of my seat . Writer has made sure that he will keep reader engaged till end with some surprises but turned out straight forward actions according to me. Artistic description of paintings and monets ,Its
Importance in heritage was well portrayed.
What I like about story is highlighting efforts of contemporary bold ,smart and virtues lady fighting for injustice . Like digital fotress’s susan anna here will make a mark in reader’s mind through out story. Both shown one step ahead others and sensible action to take care of all clue along .I may sound feminist but I was impressed by anna's act of moving from unknown country to country without anyone’s help knowing her life is in risk , stalker after her life , None of these reduced her zest to gave justice to arrabella .Her beauty , strong build , presence of mind and photographic memory made her Character unforgettable.
Overall story is kindling Anna’s all bright aspects and potentials and many Art related details , which I got little .To talk about suspense there is nothing for people who have witnessed enough of detective stories.
Sure shot thing is ,Like digital fotress this story won’t bore you in second half .(Grin)

Ashram main Ashray

All scared by what had happened to me last few weeks ,weaken from within, Mind chocked with Loads of questions, Brain twisted with how could it happened to me and all sad Emotions ,Physically handicapped to solve any of my problems.
I longed peace of mind. I packed my baggage and went to Belapur ashram.I really had no idea how this ashram runs and what I am going to do there. I was happy to know that I won’t meet familiar faces there and will be in cup of peace.

My daily schedule was fixed already .Morning 2 hours meditation followed by Tea break then ,some assignments to finish then lunch take nap and again Evening meditation followed by speech by Holi Nirmal devi , dinner and sure of sound sleep at end. My cell was switched off that served great deal to me as I could concentrate more on my questions rather than thinking about others. Shri mataji’s speeches were on different different aspects and qualitis of life . eg. Patriotism ,truth ,humbleness , honesty ,confidence ,satisfaction ,happiness ,unconditional and true love and most important was forgiveness. All my questions were answered in gracious mannered through them.

Site where ashram was situated was far from heavy traffic of city, crowd and in nature’s arm gave Vibrant Ambience to it .Ashram was well maintained with flower shrubs and green landscape every where .Sprinkle on vast green ground every evening was soothing .Meditation hall was not so huge but specious enough to hold 40 people .Aroma from scented sticks , light of diya and well decorated ganesh idle and shri matajis photo all ready to take you to transcendent state.
Daily I used to meditate whenever I get time but never had ecstasy and joy filled feeling .There I felt so light , relaxed , energetic and happy after meditation that i can't express.
I met different people belonging to different cultures , religions and professions. I Liked talking with them .
Not my ashray in ashram changed me completely but made me aware of myself.
More on this when I’ll find it.

Sona Takka

Flower I admire since I was child. My aunty had small plant in water bucket. All it’s roots were spurted out of bucket through cracks . Root’s white juicy color ,well spaced segments and fleshy appearance used to make me surprise .My job at her place was to water the plant and clean dust from root. Sounds silly right but truly I used to clean root everyday not knowing its harm. (My understanding was I am cleaning it (grin)). My morning used to fragranced with flowers fresh clear milky white Long elongated look and soothing fragrance enclosed in long green leaves like grass. More important is its strong aroma while drying out.

After operation sup brought them for me. How did she know about my liking , Mystery? I never liked bouquet concept but admired it when i was sick .How they makes u smile and conveys visitor’s good wishes for you .I will preserve its aroma in my heart and physically in my current book false impression to have lasting true impression of her love and care.
Forgiveness is an act of giving out fragrance when crushing flower.

Ant and Sky

There was tiny frail ant. Cribbing about daily struggles. Her dream was to be on SKY. She had great fascination of sky to put in exact words was enthralled by concept of angels and heaven, as said all reside in sky. Even rainbow, clouds , lightning and thunder was part of her longing. She was scared by demons but myth or fact sky has major population of enlightened beings which she tends to meet and spend time with and was sure about there protection shield .Gripped by special effects, different shades of blue and varied colors ,vastness and deepness .

One day during her casual stride she looked up and what she could see was sky is falling on her with speed of light. Dumb folded ant had two thoughts occupying her mind first to run and second to confront catastrophic event . Its attributes were no more enchanting her. Off course she choose second one , considering massive structure of sky. Blue monster was in way to gulp her.

Strong and brave from outside but totally broken , frangible ant , chanting prayer continuously stick on her place . Sky collapsed on her .To her surprised sky was weightless , lighter than her .Something she could never think and imagine . Just like Earth round cotton placed above her so light no pain no harm.

As she started walking on it , series of her dreams came true .She met all she desired angels , god , goddess and mighty monster yelling at her but couldn't harm in divine presence .She could see different shades of colors , seems like illusion and they were , as she was moving little closer , it used to make equal move in opposite direction. She enjoyed being honors of guest there. Glad to see her fantasy came true.

Turning point was her soon craving for friends. Little baby now wanted her usual friends to accompanied her and enjoy ecstasy of grand treatment ,use rainbow as slide and magical ball to play. This comfort ness was of no use and she realized importance of her past life.

Finally she decided to start her quest to find mother land to dwell on and friends for lifetime. Resume climbing to find end of sky (misleading horizon) .She was prepared for all struggles . And god played his trick once again to help her out.
Crack in sky , broad enough to her to see land and hope to meet friends.

All was involved struggle but she was enjoying it and she lived happily ever after.
What is moral of the story ?
