God In Shame(Last post book review of Rabindranath tagore)

I wanted to make the most of this last post related to book review “Letters to Friend”.

“Jallinwala Bagh” incident mentioned in book convinced me to imagine how the sensitive poet must had gone through tough time of handling such a big cruelty on humanity.

Tagore restored his mental health after renunciation of his knighthood honour as a protest.His words

They hated and killed,and men praised them,But God in shame hastened to hide its memory under the green grass.

This short documentary on you tube will explain more about Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar now is one of famous Tourist place in detail:

The game of atrocity will colour the eyes red to watch its glory and the shining sun will not leave a single wound unnoticed.We tend not to forget the day,feel the intense dance of peace bell,allowing rising tension to accept the friendship of silence.

To walk together in harmony,to draft the dream of freedom,still so many songs are waiting to dance in rythmn with letters of blissfullness.

This small attempt to backtrack mind to feel the level of intensity has surely filled with pearls of emotions for which,I will always be grateful to such a Great Writer Shri Rabindranath Tagore.

Notes To Qualify As A Seeker

20191103_154928

I am so glad that I took out some time from the daily routine and after a good walk settled myself in a local cafe to start writing down the notes from book “Letters to Friend”.Clearly it seems to be back in school days but this time all the questions of future has taken the back seat itself and to qualify as a seeker is the only way to match with the vibes of the book.

The two texts caught my attention straightway.

A Little background:These text from the holy books were gift from tagore to his friend when they both planned to go together to Fiji and carry an independent inquiry into indenture system of Indian Labour.

From Joy all things have origin: in Joy they subsists and unto Joy they return.I mediate upon His Glory,who creates the earth,the sky and the stars and sends into our minds the power of comprehension.

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.

Mind Quote

Take care of me in loving manner then you have more control over me.

This wonderful quote, I realised today when I was talking to my son that immediately strike me its relation to mind. I simply said to my son “ask me nicely then you have more control over me”.

mother-son

So take care of your mind in loving manner to deal with you in full harmony.

Elevated to Pure Blissfulness

Oh my mind you know that you are stable and restful when you are in service of your lord.You are not lost or wandering around,seeking pleasure by serverals hopes in or around.

Hey Shri Hari you are past, present and future so why to worry about something to or not to happen. Worldly desires exhaust in front of you, as love can only define you.

Hey Hari forgive me for not seeing mercy of your lotus feet,not soaked in tears which soul always wanted to shed from years,elevating to pure blissfulness.

Flower of Tears

   vrindavan-holi-widows

Oh Vrindavan

   I have no idea why I am so addicted to think more and more about you.

Free from past, present and future thoughts, love is now the only demand.

Can’t claim equivalent to gopis who forgot dry eyes as Krishna was the only hope of life. Oh Vrindavan, I see myself far behind promising that I belong to you,so forgive me for all the inaction towards you, cover me in your dust  to serve allowing me to  shower you with flowers of my tears.

Vrindavan-The Only Soul Place in the World

Vrindavan

Finally after so many long years of waiting, Shri Radhe Rani allowed me to see & feel Vrindavan, the highest spiritual place in the world. The reason for saying this because Vrindavan is more Radhe Rani’s place and in obvious terms she decides who will enter Vrindavan. Researching more about this why it is like that I found an interesting reason.

In separation to Krishna shri Radhe Rani cried so much for about 100 years that her tears actually created a big lake in vrindavan, an example of true love which soul always seek far beyond for than our limited mind understanding, puts  Radhe Rani naturally in authoritative  position  that who should be entering Vrindavan.

Since I have returned to my home, not a single day passes when I don’t think of Vrindavan. Vrindavan is absolutely not an ordinary place, I completely feel that even if I get chance to be on most beautiful place on earth, I would say that this can’t be equal to vrindavan. In one way it can be said that it just home sickness or anything else like too religious but if I am feeling that all my questions of why this& that or unnecessary emotions have taken pause, constantly hearing chanting of  a name which is giving shape to my energy, calmness, blissfulness, intelligence  then this place has something great to offer me, I just need to closely monitor my happiness level graph.

Completely immersed in self sufficient  happiness indicated that to avoid any sort of  diversion would require some sort of constant activity, which is none other than start doing selfless service for Vrindavan.The only remote tool, I can think of  is writing, offering my words onto the dust of vrindavan requesting to shri Radhe rani to forgive my limited mind and heart as they are absolutely useless and allow this soul to be truly  in your service.

Further talking about service, I want to highlight about two organisation associated with noble objectives.

Friends of Vrindavan and Food for Life organisation working hard to make vrindavan clean, green, more rich in culture and most important preserving the heritage. The recycling programs, constantly cleaning of garbage ,organising programs to spread awareness, planting trees etc. are quite impressive and I firmly believe that it will grow further. As they are dependent on public support to carry on their operations, please find more details of their work through following links and support them if you wish as such.

Wet Eyes

wet eyes

Present is the only guarantor of happiness not the future.

Living for love for forever not for the moment.

Appreciating small things in life not waiting for something big to happen.

Oh what more is left to achieve comparing to wet eyes ,as I am  in love with myself happily live.
