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.

The introduction of season-2 mainly has the beginning of her puzzled love story and how it took shape from admitting love to overcoming all the hurdles to reach the wedding point.The season-2 is not available on Netflix but it is available to watch online,I have shared a link in the end.
Padmini is fully set in house and not just that she takes charge of responsibility of the whole house due to sudden demise of her beloved sister-in-law,also get busy with relaunching business(nearly sinking ship) as well ,for which her friend makeover consultant Rudra get called in.In between of all this sudden unexpected entry of Riya(wife of Raghav,left 14 years ago) intrinsically pushed her to admit the love for Raghav.
Definitely it has very common pattern like other dramas,what holded me due to number of reasons.First of all,I liked the immediate understanding that happens in relations here on mature level,no doubt Maa(mother of Raghav) contributed a good level of tension to keep padmini away, the wholesome padmini who always truly believe in herself and lastly out of my choice after long time ,I was enjoying a Tv-series for a reasonable time.
The media below is a small interview of Padmini(Karuna Pandey),reflecting her views on the character.
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.
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.

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.

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.
