Dawn Five

Dawn 5 25-26 Aug 18 1:10 AM This blog is giving me so many options that I don’t need them all. I have kind of surrendered in. I do not want to explore all what I can do. I just want to write and post each night simply without images if I may, each I night till I die some morning, noon or night. Evening I fine too. Last few days have been heavy. Right after meeting Lee and having super heavy Dosa, I have kept having less but all ghee(clarified butter) enriched food. Its loveable of course but learnt a very important way of having ghee. If one wants to have a good lubricated joints over a span of a life time then have ghee few minutes before having food. It will not only help in digestion but will give let the intestinal path lubricated enough for the food to pass faster. Day was dull. I am about to finish Roberto Calasso’s Ka. It’s an informative read. At last the results are out and …

Bird Man of Kashmir

Even though Rasool’s favorite rooster died of old age but his death wasn’t natural. The biggest virtue just before death he could acquire was patience. Yet he remained curious as a crow. He was a fighter cock and the last fight he will be remembered for was with the biggest cat who would swim every crossing Dal from the main road. She would come and eat the chickens. He injured her in the stomach but in fight lost one of his shoulders. In the following days, four other cocks came from a nearby farm and almost killed him. He was blinded in one eye and eventually lost all his confidence and started walking strangely due to the absence of an eye. But he will live through the summer and the moment he started looking like getting healthier. He was found upturned in lake one morning. Rasool had six sheeps, twelve ducks and six hen and their hundreds of children, and twelve swans.  The swans who were loved by all, and who had acquired many names …

Almost Empty

Dawn 2 New Delhi Is it true that good days pass fast or even boring days sprint by too? And what about the rainy ones if it is only raining all day ? When the weeping of the clouds has taken the better out of you, amongst the buildings that only deal with touching the clouds. Like the society in front of mine is “Cloud 9”. And mine is “Angel Mercury”. And they are serious people! What would a boring day look like in the life of a modern Yogi? Too much comfort? Availability of Gadgets! No one talks of electricity anymore! Yog is an art and yoga is the union. Let me write fast because I have eaten rather lazily by the end of tonight when I had thought of skipping it. Ma cooked something irresistible. And when one is rarely at home, smells such a delicacy from the god’s hand herself. I would rather not eat for whole tomorrow than now. Tomorrow is the weekly fast day. This fast, though I have been …

Dawn: One

Dawn 1 New Delhi Dawn is comes every day. As outside like inside, mostly by the time it is ending. That feeling of a day gone. And all the imagination of doing and doing more rests. Inspiration is something one has to seek every where each moment. But it is as true that inspiration will come but it should find you working. I discovered Seth’s blog and heard him the other day. I am liking people who are wearing and predicting future with stats. I would like you to go and hear some of his talks if you still haven’t heard him. Rasool’s edit is done and I have sent it for approval. By noon tomorrow it should be approved and I hope to publish and make it live for the world night short of Indian Independence Day. I hope I can help Rasool. I have no idea if I fail to collect any amount, I do not think Rasool will see any day after  100th day. He is down with all kinds of chronic …
