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.

After a very long time,I enjoyed so much watching a TV series “Bhaage Re Mann” on Netflix. In the below media,I am posting a beautiful song by Vibha Saraf for the drama.At the very end of this post,I have shared a small trailer as well
What is this TV series about?
It is a family drama and is suitable to watch with family.The story plot begins with an extremely busy family in preparation of youngest daughter marriage and yet they don’t want spare any moment to refresh their memories related to not just daughter but overall how happily life has been so far.
In the middle of hustle bustle environment,a guest came about whom no body knows except Anjali(mother) & Ashok(father) and Raghav (next door neighbour) and in no time it is found that this guest is actually Aunt(Padmini) as she is sister of Ashok. All the young adults of family get excited when they learned peculiar things about such a full of life their Aunt MiniB(nick name) and can’t get wait to get her know more.
Padmini left her home 20 years ago in the middle of her own wedding time,she was confused,not ready at all, in addition to this she sought help from bridegroom Raghav(her best friend as well) but nothing was worked out satisfactorily.Now after 20 years,coming back to home,how she weaves the carpet to rest her feet on,proved a must watch story.
Overall I would conclude that each episode is given the reasonable pace using elements of humour,family concerns,relations,romance etc. moves the story interestingly to hold the audience.
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.

I am starting this blog with an apology for all the readers because they might find this review not capable to capture the level of vibrancy that this young boy Amal holds.
Despite of illness,the boy was full of enthusiasm/energy talking to different people via room window.His conversations were full of questions & answers so joyfully that actually made other people felt so divine about their work which they considered not much value.The talkative boy whoever he met like curd man,flower-seller,took no time to imagine small small details like how curd yells to sell,how his wife make cow stand in morning must be ful of fun.
I felt the need to watch it as well and this video definitely does full justice to the reading,unfortunately this is not available with English subtitles.
My favourite part of story when he expressed his desire to be like the man whom he met seeking work carrying brass pot and pile of bamboo woods on his head.He clearly was even more excited if he fails to find work because then he can watch that tired man sitting under fig tree,washing his feet in river stream,eating his lunch,it simply implies writer’s message that whatever struggle time of life is there ,it has nothing to do with opportunity you can always create to sing in tune with life.
His ultimate desire to be postman to deliver king’s message of love to houses in different countries,represents the fact, he just wanted to be ambassador of profound life unblocking our limited view towards normal daily small and simple things of life.
