Innocence/Guilty Q&A

Shree tagged me for this Innocence/Guilty Q&A.

This is something which I find very interesting..with equally interesting rules as well.

The Song Of The Free- Vivekananda

Surfing through the internet I came across a beautiful, thought-provoking poem written by Swami Vivekananda in 1895.

The wounded snake its hood unfurls,
The flame stirred up doth blaze,
The desert air resounds the calls
Of heart-struck lion's rage.

The cloud puts forth it deluge strength
When lightning cleaves its breast,
When the soul is stirred to its in most depth
Great ones unfold their best.

Let eyes grow dim and heart grow faint,
And friendship fail and love betray,
Let Fate its hundred horrors send,
And clotted darkness block the way.

All nature wear one angry frown,
To crush you out - still know, my soul,
You are Divine. March on and on,
Nor right nor left but to the goal.

Nor angel I, nor man, nor brute,
Nor body, mind, nor he nor she,
The books do stop in wonder mute
To tell my nature; I am He.

Before the sun, the moon, the earth,
Before the stars or comets free,
Before e'en time has had its birth,
I was, I am, and I will be.

The beauteous earth, the glorious sun,
The calm sweet moon, the spangled sky,
Causation's law do make them run;
They live in bonds, in bonds they die.

And mind its mantle dreamy net
Cast o'er them all and holds them fast.
In warp and woof of thought are set,
Earth, hells, and heavens, or worst or best.

Know these are but the outer crust -
All space and time, all effect, cause.
I am beyond all sense, all thoughts,
The witness of the universe.

Not two nor many, 'tis but one,
And thus in me all me's I have;
I cannot hate, I cannot shun
Myself from me, I can but love.

From dreams awake, from bonds be free,
Be not afraid. This mystery,
My shadow, cannot frighten me,
Know once for all that I am He.

- Swami Vivekananda

Working from last 3 days on updating my blog(s) with new widgets and plugins. In the process came across many new and interesting things. These have renewed my interest in blogging.

Ideas are plenty... just need the right attitude to go ahead.

Hopefully, the nourishment will cater to the demand.
Ending it here.

PS: This post is more of a test post.

Hi 5 Tag

Shree, thanks for tagging me.... It took me considerably longgggg time to respond. U were right... I was tired of writing poems with "empty" feelings (or fillings :P). It took me some time to acknowledge it . Therefore, this delay. :)

Ok... now getting down to some business...

5 Pathetically horrible movies you’ve seen :
1. Kabhi Na Kabhi: Great cast but flop show... I didn't understand what the movie is all about. (Priyadarshan has a knack for making terrible movies. When he is not in his "own" self, he makes Hera Pheri!). I saw this movie in a cinema hall in Ranchi in 1998 (see... the traumatic experience leaves behind an indelible trail)
2. Hello Brother: It seems Khan brothers have bought the copyright for making some cheap movies with Salman Khan doing the finishing job so well. Worse, I had all the time in earth (and in heaven) to watch this movie in a cinema hall way back in 1999. (another example of a traumatic experience)
3. One, Two, Three: Ya Shree... agree with u... Only Paresh Rawal was the USP of the movie... everything else was Bakwas..
4. & 5.: Gosh!!!! I do not want to recall any more (they do not come alone... bad memories follow too :P)

5 Accessories you can create out of food
1. Round Chapatti earring.
2. Map of India Chapatti earring.
3. Moon-like Chapatti earring.
4. & 5. In short specialized in Chapatti earrings!!!

5 Places you won't be seen dead at
1. Temples: I have stopped begging long back therefore, stopped going to temples. :P
2. Gutter: Never drunk enough to reach there.
3. Cloth Shop: Get instantly intoxicated as soon as I enter one!!!
4. Multiplexes: unless someone sponsors... hehehe
5. Top of a water tank: A Basanti (of Sholay movie fame) will never intrude into my life.

5 People you'd love to hit anytime, anywhere:
Well I am a follower of Gandhi, the Aandhi... (totally) non-violent in my actions (sparing thoughts; who has seen it!!!)
And bible says: Hate the sin and not the sinner... I agree... after all, some of the heinous sins are committed by some of the most beautiful people!!!
Therefore, no hitting business.

5 Things you'd do to scare anybody:
1. Recite my poems...
2. Sing a romantic song on my very first date!!!
3. Volunteering to make Chapattis... hehehhe...
4. Ravana like-laugh...
5. Jump in front of someone unexpectedly and shout at top of my voice.

Finally, at the end... done with the test paper...
Now time to pay back...
Tagging 5 people

It goes back to you.... Check out..

We all dream of rising so high in the direction of the sky... over the rainbow... on the rain

Rise and Fall

Lots of development in last few days. Some rise to glory, some fall to humiliation.

In IPL CSK won the trophy. But India is out of T20 World Cup.

In UK, Gorden Brown resigned from the top post as the Labour Party was not able to strike a deal with Lib. Dem. David Camaron is the new Tory PM. Welcoming UK into an era of coalition govt.

Jairam Ramesh is courting controversy over his China remarks.

The battle between Lalit Modi and BCCI is going on apace.

Bill Gates is going to adopt a village in Bihar!

Viswanathan Anand retained his world championship title...

and there are many more.
Some of the happenings/events seem to be a consequence of utter foolishness of individual(s) and some bear deep afterthought.

The mind is either a fickle enemy or a calm partner; whatever we choose it to be. Even God can not play with the free will He has bestowed upon the humans!
