Maveli Nadu – A land of Love?

I know this is not the time for a blog with this title! Onam is 6-7 months away. Still! After my New Year Blog, I was thinking a lot about the word “Love”. Why can’t we find any in this society!

Is it because we are heading fast?
Is it because we don’t trust?
Is it because we don’t care?

I am getting confused in between these three statements. If you are shooting the question at me then I will select – All Three.

Yes, we are heading fast in our life. We start our day at 6 or 6.30. Run to catch the bus to office, till late night at office forgetting our meals. Come back home directly to bed at midnight?

Yes, we don’t trust anyone. If I open newspaper in the morning, my day will get ruined. Killing own brother, his own mother. What for? If this is the case, then how can we trust?

Yes, we don’t care? Who needs that? Somehow I will finish my day with my own work. Week end is for sleep and washing clothes. So I don’t have any issues! So when should I care others?

What in the end? The last reel of the movie is running. 2012 is approaching. Will it be an end? Hahaha. Just kidding! So there was a Maveli nadu in old age? I cant belive. If Yes, then how it vanished? If No, can we make one? But how?

I cant say, please be slow. But I can say,

Trust yourself, trust others.
Care yourself, care others.
Love will be residing in between Trust and care.

So we can make a world of Love. A maveli nadu!!! Trust me!

New Resolutions 2010

My first blog in 2010. I was thinking of a new topic till date. But couldn get anything catchy. So let us start the New Year of Blogging with this. I let you decide this is catchy or not :)

Once the New Year draws we could only hear the word “Resolutions”. Do you make resolutions just as others do? I never thought of this. Last time when my cousins came from Canada, they asked every one of us to make resolutions. But did we stick to it? I am not sure.

I didn’t think of resolutions there after. But today I thought why can’t I write a blog about it and try to follow it. I don’t know I am in the correct way. Just a try to be a part of it.

Here you go!!!

  1. Love
  2. Kind
  3. Care

Does this three have a meaning in this century? I have no clue.

But reality is we don’t have any time to love anyone. We have so many pains in life. So where is time to get loved or give love? Lending words of Sophocles “One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love." Even though we don’t have time, or we don’t know the meaning of the word, we just say “I love you”. We keep our email signatures to our friends as “With Love”. Is it for name sake?

My Second resolution is Kind. What is it? Again, we are kind to all? I am not. I am busy with my work. I need to complete such and such tasks in the limited time. If I find someone in the street, how can I stop and be kind to him? If someone knocks in the door how can I talk to him as the time is running away. So we are unable to find good people. Here is a small hint, “Be kind to unkind people - they need it the most”

Care? Almost the same thing described above? So just a suggestion for myself. “Once we surrender our mind to GOD completely, HE will take care of us in every way.”

Wishing you all a great new year ahead. May 2010 bring joy to your life.
