Philosophy of Life

Ugadi is symbolic of life. Let’s celebrate the six tastes of life called Ugadi festival. The word “Ugadi” is derived from Sanskrit word, Yuga-Adi where Yuga means period and Adi means beginning. It means the beginning of new life. Which means it is the last day of waning of moon and the first day of waxing of moon. This phenomenon signifies the beginning of new time. You can observe and see it is the first day of Vasant Ritu and that means it is the beginning of spring season. From this day onward, trees and plants start shedding their leaves and new growth appears.
Thus, even nature signifies new time.

Ugadi is observed with a dish of six different tastes and flavors like tender Mangoes, Jaggery, Tamarind, Neem flowers, salt and green Chilli. It tastes  sweet, sour as well as hot. This festival symbolizes the different phases and experiences of life that every human being undergoes during the journey from cradle to grave.

Human life is a mix of different flavours similar to Ugadi “Pachadi”. This festival symbolizes that life is a mixture of unique experiences and that we should accept every variety in life throughout the New Year. It signifies that life is a mixture of happiness fear, anxiety, sadness anger and surprises.

Life without any of these emotions is incomplete. All of them come together to teach us various things, make us strong and give us the resourcefulness to face any situation. It teaches us that every shade and every phase must be dealt with in distinct ways.

So this festival is celebrated to welcome a new start in life every year with the expectations of happiness, well-being, growth and prosperity.

Happy Ugadi, folks!

There are three certainties in life, you are born, you live and die. End story. But what if life is described as thus and changes the whole scenario of the story. 
Life is like rainbow ................. see its colors
Life is like flower   ................... smell its fragrance
Life is like honey   .................... taste its sweetness
Life is like gentle breeze ............feel its touch

Mixed Feelings

 Today I am with mixed feelings,
Joy in meeting and knowing people during the phases of my life and at the same time it's so sad while leaving people whom I get acquainted parting from one and other either by transfer, shifting homes,moving places for betterment's, etc. Most of the time, all that go along with us is just the sweet memories of the past which would be history very soon; But as for me, it would mean a million's of bundles of memory in my life.
yes..... Today I cried.......
My throat choke......
No words...... No expressions.......
My eyes became wet with tears......
Rolling down my cheeks, pearls dropping down on to the ground......
Heart was full of pain and satisfaction and gratitude .......
I met the person who made my life so beautiful ....... and so miserable in thoughts....

There is a saying: "God cannot be everywhere therefore he made mothers".
In the same way God provides us with good people around in our day- to-day life to experience His love and care to every human being..... In my life, I'll always remain grateful to God for providing the person whom I can never ever forget.....
For the way he has engulfed my very being with characters filled with LOVE, AFFECTION, HATE REDNESS, SADISM, BITTERNESS  and so on which made me an wholesome of a person of me within me.... vehemently speaking in all off my moods his presence was part of me, engrossed. Perhaps, I should say, HE IS ONE IN TWENTY THOUSAND. Other than him I haven't met any other person in my life multiple and typical characteristics having patience, broad mindedness and at the same time very understanding. I guess here after my life is going to be a puzzle, for I'M hopping in to new era. I'm not afraid to face this part of life by God's grace, and for the motivation by the person who encouraged me to be self confident in all manner of life and that, I believe, would help me to solve new era's puzzle quite easily.

I cried..... the thought of leaving and missing him disturbed me a lot ..... Every beginning has an end....! Perhaps! One fine day I'll have to leave my past, place, people and the person who is so dear to me and head towards new beginning's, to another stage of life; It's so painful! Eyes are week but the thoughts are strong......
At the end of the day, The truth is that, we are all passengers traveling the train of life, board the train at our stations and get off the train at our destinations; meanwhile, we come across co-passengers with different intentions, categories and different morals-we get to know them for a particular time and we tend to leave behind the past, as the time flows as a stream towards us while we are heading forward. This is the reality of life.......!
"A person who brings tears of gratitude is very valuable"
That person stood by me in every difficult situation of my life I am very grateful to God for gifting me such a wonderful person.
My heart aches with gratitude ....
In words, cannot express my feelings ...
Tears..... Tears.... and only tears ....
In life we meet very few people.
They are most precious!

This person's experience in life taught me many lessons; One among them is to be a genuine and practical person.
