Smart Suraksha at your Finger Tips

October 31, 2013 1 Comments

Prevention is indeed better than Cure. For some ailments doesn't have doctors and have not even the facility of time to heal them. I am talking about "Crime again women" which stirs up a very important concept- "Safety of Women".

Why do we always need an instance of things gone wrong to be more cautious? Why a woman has to be raped to make a nation alert about the vulnerability of it's women. Aren't enough women, girls, children are getting raped, mutilated, distressed every day, every hour to tell the county how it'd women is not safe at it's own bay?

Those wings that were clipped before their flight
I want to dedicate this post to all the small children who are off late being abducted from their homes, schools etc and are brutally raped or molested by man worse than monsters. Since everyone or say a lot of people have spoken about Nirbhaya and the truth is, today her name has become the beacon of reference for crime against women. Not diluting her case, I also want to highlight the case of that little girl who was kidnapped from her own house by her neighbor who not just brutally raped her over period of 2-3 days but brutally inserted some unprecedented things in her body. Every time I think of her case or Nirbhaya, my blood boils and my eyes are filled with helpless tears.

The little girl who has gone, too early, too soon
We often read incidences in newspaper, news and forget them too soon with a TSCH. rarely when things happened with them, people fail to realize the pain of the person who is going through all this. Accidents are fatal and sometime non preventable but murders and crimes are often planned, perpetrated and fueled by fickle mindedness of people. I have seen such incidence a little too close as well. One such incident that happened to a friend' sister when we were in school. She was one of my closest pal and I have spent a lot of time after school with her and her family. She had a very cute little sister who everyone was fond of. The girl's family was a well behaved, affable, joint family. One day her little sister went missing and on furtive search they found her dead body near a water well. Further investigations told that one of their business/family arch rivals have killed that little child out of their jealousy or some kind of revenge. We often heard such things on films and seeing them happening in reality was appalling. The girl was indeed very sweet that the most furious person, having a glance of her angelic face would forget his/her anger. Unfortunately, the killers was beyond the speechless animal.

Often kids are abducted and confined into remote places and are killed. Their folks keep on searching for them but in vain. With mobile penetration seemingly increasing largely each passing hour, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that even kids should be handled a device and wish they have something like smart suraksha with them.  If wishes were horses...

Telephony is indeed a boon of an invention to womankind! Not just it helps us to navigate through unknown places using GPRS, GPS or help us stay connected with our near and dear ones but it is also about being a home for some really cool and technically strong apps designed for specific target groups.

Vicious Cycle of Life

This post is written for 3 Words Wednesday using the prompt words- Sharp, Depressed, Fuzzy.

Its' a 55 word story with an open end climax and urge my readers to suggest their take and possible climax.

The otherwise "Sharp" girl was "depressed" over the "fuzzy" ways of her love life. She tried to work out but in vain. He was in his vicious best. She lost her faith each passing day, month and year. When love continued to play side fiddle, she took a decision.
Any guesses what that decision was?

Thou Shalt Pray

October 27, 2013 13 Comments

"It lingers my mind
and all shrines without fussing
between Ram & Rahim"

--- A Haiku on Prayers

Everyone has their own reason to pray. I pray to bring more harmony to self. I pray to connect myself with god and establish a two way communication with him.

Praying comes a long way. I believe it is God's own telecommunication mechanism to offer Human an opportunity, a medium to get connected with them even when there was no technology, no Internet. It's Gods own "Near Field communication" and "Direct Access- Zero Monthly rental/ Free Unlimited VoIP".
I think prayer is indeed a great way to connect directly with Gods and our inner self.

Why Do I pray?
I pray for several reasons and sometimes for no reasons at all. Prayers, for me is not a ritual but micro chip embedded in my human processor or DNA. And that's the way it should be, I believe. My normal prayers are surrounded near my family and their well being. I count my parents as God' best gift to me. I pray for them first. Then I pray for close people, self and seek divine blessings to keep myself guided and capable. I have seen a big event in my life which changed the entire course of it. It didn't stray my beliefs in God but it rather sealed it more. I pray to avoid any such incidences any further. I pray that I do not lose my any limbs any further, nor do any other person and pray for general well being of all.

While our prayers and reason of praying finds a new meaning everyday, let me tell you about my prayers today.

This morning, I was sitting in my room wondering over a split milk. I was little upset on the milk man for waking me up with continuously ringing the bell. I admonished him for disturbing my early morning sleep for nothing and an unwritten calculation. He was tough in the beginning but soon he understood my stand [and in process, I understood his anxiety] and he left apologizing. I learnt though him that how people have run with the paltry sum of money leaving the poor person in financial lurch. I told him that I won't ask him to trust me or anyone without an appropriate back up. Not that I would run with his righteous amount but it was a word of advise from my own experience that trust should not be placed without a backup to avoid heart and pocket burns. This reminded me of God's element in each of us. Real God is not about singing 2 hours of devotional songs but actually lies in treating his people fair and equitable.

I Prayed to God for inculcating good beliefs in me and keep my moral values intact. I prayed that he should always lead me through goodness and light and I am not saying this to get myself some brownie points here but I believe these values determine our character and self happiness in long run. Well, that was my second reason to pray that day.

My first reason to pray was to get some sleep :). You may find it funny but I was going through emotional turbulence which continued till late hours of last night, effectively chasing away my peace of mind and sleeps. I felt lonely, helpless and let down by people who endeared most. So I prayed to God to restore my confidence back and allow me some rest. I am fighting troubled sleeps, a kinda insomnia from quite sometime, a bad prolonged nerve ache and prayed to God to help me overcome it.

Complained I cause I had no shoes until I saw a man with no leg- Thus I Pray
My third prayer came in pre-noon. I was thinking about the curdled milk and some rotten veggies, due to absence of a fridge in my house. How much I wished I own a fridge, a comfy-plonky sofa, an iPad, a DSLR, some good furniture etc. Its then someone rang the bell. I opened and found a strong bad odor. It was the poor garbage picking children who came for their regular round of picking garbage from each flat of the building. Yes, the children. The smell was indeed rotten,. I quickly told them that I don't have any garbage today and closed the door to escape from the sight of rotten garbage, I couldn't escape the bad odor even though closing the door and moving to other room.  It filled my nostril for hours and I couldn't help but think about the plight of those children who come to pick this garbage, every day and stick with it till disposal. Who knows if their house opens to a garbage dump conveniently at their poor location. I once again felt bad for being a human being. This unruly divide between "Have's and Have-nots" filled my heart with endless woes.

The trash box was indeed very smelly. It was foul and I wondered the nature of people who first employ such small children to do such a pitiful tasks and also those humans who do not know how to dispose their garbage decently, well covered. I prayed that no kids or human being should be made so inferior to perform such tasks and even if they do, thy should be allowed enough dignity in their jobs. I kept on thinking about these children, praying for their well being and in due process, slept off lying half bent on my bed, living that much wanted nap that I asked God last night.

The DIY Praying with Lakshmi Pooja Pack
Diwali is fast approaching and I can see a buzz all around. I am away from my house and new in this city. I do not want to have my Diwali spent at someone else' house. I would rather spend at my own house but how? 

I want to have a quite Diwali. Like all the years, this year too, I won't burn any fire crackers or waste money on things that makes no difference to my life.
For us, Diwali means Lakshmi Pooja. For me, Lakshmi Pooja means immense preparations.

I do not believe in following unnecessary pre conditions to offer my reverence to my God. I do believe in rituals but I prefer to do it myself than outsource to some Pandit. I am quite fascinated by doing/ following some rituals whole heartedly and gain joy in them. So when it comes to Pooja and that too for that one special day of the year, why not do it full fledgedly and that's where this Pooja Pack comes like Manna from heaven. That is the reason that this Diwali I plan to do my pooja with Lakshmi Pooja Pack and offer my Pure Prayers to my God. The Do-it-Yourself Way!

The Lakshmi Pooja Pack has all things, and all things lovely that I need to conduct Pooja myself and it makes the entire exercise a wonderful experience too. It is very handy and comes with a very attractive packaging. You name it and can forget too but it has all kinds of stuff inside. It's a kind of a unique activity. You can read the manuals and play the shlokas CD to purify your home and surroundings with divine mantras. I can't tell you the aura it creates and how special it makes the festivity. So this Diwali, I am gonna do my Pooja with Lakshmi Pooja Pack [ Stay tuned to this space for upcoming Product review of the same], How about you?
This Post aims to celebrates Divinity, Diwali and Pure Prayers with Cycle Agarbatti and their newly launched Sampoorna Pooja Pack
