Devotion Versus Knowledge:What is the Difference?

What is difference between devotion to God and the knowledge?

Answer: Devotion is like a radiating gem and Knowledge is a Lamp.Both of them light the darkness but lamp always need oil to keep it going but Devotion doesn’t need anything to support it.I learned this from watching my favourite TV Series-Ramayana.I don’t know what’s happening to me,I am everyday feeling attraction towards to know Ramayana story more.I have started reading the book,which have been lying in the corner for 4 years and must say cherishing it.

This lockdown time definitely has its own challenges,not easy to adapt a new way of living,but I surely somewhere feels like that this time was somewhere hidden,or was under my thinking carpet.

I just wish May Lord bless everyone’s consciousness to go the level to bring simplicity,empathy and lots more qualities that we are seeking.

Now It is Movie Time Hurray

I feel that I am done now from the book review and moving to Movie review would be as exciting as book review.

Why I decided to jump from book to Movie review?

Well I completely feel moving to other side of Arts which is media is necessary for me because I am also great admirer of different messages,I learn from movies.

Can’t wait to explain more,so excited.

I would be reviewing “Parmanu” in my first post,as I recently watched,also noted very interesting points.

Yipeeeee!!!!!!

“Come Out,come away”

When I sit in the morning outside on the deck of my boat,before the majestic purple of the mountains crowned with the morning light,I know that I am eternal that I am ananda-rupam.

My true form is not that of flesh and blood,but of joy.In the world where we habitually live,the self is so predominant that everything in it is of our own making and we starve because we have to feed upon ourselves. To know the truth is to become true;there is no other way.When we live the life of self,it is not possible for us to realize truth.

“Come out,come away.” This is the urgent cry we have in our soul-the cry in the blood of the chick,living in its shell.

These lines are from the book “Letters to Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore from page no 71 when he was in Srinagar Kashmir(October 1915).I don’t have any words or story to take a dig ,just a prevailing silence and willing to share with the readers.

Feeling Blessed to be part of such a old Book(Letters to Friend)

This book is very old and Tagore’s hand writing along with an old stamp is absolute bonus ,feeling so lucky to borrow from the local library.

I must say this book is deep work of consciousness.The writer’s acceptance of his inner and outer world with full grace,glorified situations on positive note every single time,with his all time favourite companionship of nature.So far I have read only around 40 pages but I can feel an intense stillness which made its path through acceptance and deep realisation of life.Before the actual chapters begin,there is an essay on personality of Tagore gives insight how he found his bonding with nature in its fullest expression.These lines showcases,how he witnessed silently

“Sometimes I would pass many months alone without speaking ,till the voice grew thin & weak due to lack of use”.

The essay summarises influencing factors and how Tagore’s consciousness progressed towards using literature for country’s well-being resulted in opening a school in the lap of nature named as “Shantiniketan”.This video gives a good presentation of the place’s art work with Bengali language in the background.

This line touched me“I know that I must pass through death.God Knows it is the death-pang that is tearing open my heart”.Tagore had given death a liberating and an eternal truth face,clearly reflects how much he was in pain when surrounded by death of family members.As an artist,he took death as clay and moulded completely into a different shape.

I completely feel that I would be hunting lots of words to do full justice with the book review in the next post.

Slow pace but i am jealous with writer

 

One thing is absolutely clear that this book had been written in very much free time,heavily garlanded with poetry that makes me very jealous of writer simply because I love to feel time.The sluggish pace of story revealed that fragility of bachelor’s club members in keeping the vow of celibacy life long.

The frequent poetry and in between all Rasik Dada(big brother) ,non member of club emerged as the carrier to move story making fun via taking advantage of his age factor,romantic sense and this all got supported by poetry & nature.Although I was feeling that it is getting bit stretchy,but turned this to make rounds of tea/coffee.I would do little more leaking of story, how two new characters admission to Kumar Sabha Nirmala & Abalakanta put pressure on other members via their devotion towards taken social cause task.

In the last 30 pages,story picked the pace welcomed by Aksh again with his all time round joking habit and no doubt rasik dada’s timely comedy interruptions played key role to open doors for all the characters(friends and family) come together under one roof to witness different emotional stage guilty,realisation,happiness.

The last line for Kumar Sabha members ” Don’t expect you will be spared later” gave the last dose of laughter.

Chirakumar Sabha: The Bachelor’s Club: A Comedy in Five Acts

This time, I am attaching a short video clip from Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(old version),as there is no media clip related to it ,but this book reminds of this family comedy I used to watch a lot.

Review of Chirakumar Sabha#The Bachelor’s Club#

This book is definitely full of comic sense and on the top of that the work of poetry is an added gem.

Now the question is how it proves?

The setting of story starts from the conversation of Aksh(husband) and Puro(wife) gives headstart in terms how Aksh previous member of a bachelor’s group vowed to never think about women ended up in marriage.

Aksh ‘s character did the very good job of filling the conversation with four lines of poetry every time when other characters are confused or in slight anger especially his wife. I would agree,A merrier person that even the married men will envy,these lines in book completely suits him.

I couldn’t find any media attachment in English. The dialogues between Aksh and prospective bride grooms were not just hilarious but reveals the full hippocratic nature which ended by another funny statement of Aksh that “as soon I slapped their back their tails began to wiggle”.The story had been to the point so far and a family’s way of doing comic sense reminds me time when brothers,sisters and other relatives all sit together,pull each other legs from memories or from a family situation.

Reading this book reminds me of the time when I was watching TV series of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai,a family comedy,in which different characters or different situations fueled more excitement and laughter.I don’t have relevant media but this trailer of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(second version) will give you idea the crazy stuff I am enjoying.

Buy/Borrow:I am posting the amazon affiliate link as well or it is available to borrow from your local library,then I must recommend.
