Now it is story time.A simple story,I have from the tough time of lock down,it is not easy to be home,managing school going children suddenly at home full time,along with husband work from home,in between all this finding time for my growth path like studying ,applying for jobs for career change,at present employed part time.
My 8 year old son,who is fond of having friends to play with him,suddenly he is finding hard to manage it, and as mother I found more harder because with the guilt factor overtaking in me .In my case as Mother unconsciously, I become like need provider all the time,what strikes me that my inability to accept the situation,so that I can make easy for my son to accept it. My relationship with my son started showing weakening signs,I started blaming myself “Why I didn’t make more independent personality?”.All past time acted as catalyst to weaken even more and began that dance of life that you we don’t want to see.
I just stopped & accepted this dance and asked myself in order to standstill & still feel bliss,I need to get above the happier dance as well that will follow later.I took out the “As it is ” gem was buried inside me to let me feel the real dance.“As it is ” straightway brought me to yogic mind state and started showing the path of solution with lushful nature around it.I realised the need to have more understandable conversation with my son putting my all past thoughts,difficulties of present aside and to be part of solution.
What is your story of accepting “As it is”?

Without “As it is “,what I will be doing differently?
I am going to explain just like in maths we do,to prove a theorem,start with theorem assumption and then break down into simple chunks to prove .So far,not taking this philosophy into account,I felt that I am always divided into two states happy or sorrowful state.It took me years to come to this conclusion & every day practice that I am complete and above this. It is feeling like being a “Lotus” flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty.I know that life will keep testing me and that’s why I will keep sharing my experiences.
I am thinking of continue this by a story telling in next post.Please share your story,if you are experiencing this state in your life.Please like,comment or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you
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.

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.

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.
