For my Elephant Lord

Standard

525401-ganpati-ji

The festival I wait every year, from the preparation of modaks (an Indian sweet)to those numerous invitations, to visit individual friends and families as we come together to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi (Festival of Lord Ganesha).

Since 22 years on the streets of Mumbai,India I have been roaming around visiting places, houses, halls and meeting my favourite Lord. His divine presence for 11 days completely changes the atmosphere. The dance, the music, the cheer, the excitement  and the chants all at once..it’s a different ambience..you won’t find at any other place.

Since the last two years I have been voided of this, since I changed geography and came to the land of dreams, missing him who made my dreams true…Today I am happy and silent; happy coz my nation is celebrating Lord’s arrival sending me pics on various social media, of Ganesha idols and silent coz I am not a part of that fun.. whatever the case may be I know he is always there with me helping me across seven oceans and blessing me everyday like he did in the earlier years…

 

You came, you saw you conquered our hearts,

We pray, we live, on your strength to never fall apart.

You remove all the obstacles and make us believe in your love and power,

Hey Ganesha hey Vinakaya, your name is always mightier.

With love in eyes and prayers in heart, I bow to you hey Ganarayaa

Crossing all oceans and sitting on eagle ata USA la pan luvkar yaaa, Ganapati Bappa Moryaa..!!

(Ata USA la pan lukar ya= Do come fast to USA as well)

The quote with which I liveby everyday….

Since the beginning of my junior college, as I had my personal experiences, I was stimulated in putting my thoughts in words. With the blessings of and gratitude to God I started writing down my views and opinions keeping them in front of my audience.

The thought seeded in my mind everyday I wake up is to, “Live Today as if its my Last..” and think as if, “I am gonna live forever.” With this quote I can relate to what Sir Lincoln said above.

Making each and every memory count, be it waking up late hurrying behind in search of clothes, going to the bathroom and taking a cold shower (getting the jitters now as I write) then cramming stuff in bag and leaving for work so that you don’t miss the 9am local etc.etc. The above things seem to be desultory but these small things later make you laugh when you sit quietly and  ponder on them. These things along with the planned ones are all part of your beautiful journey called LIFE and enjoying them to the core and way they are is the secret of happiness.

As rightly said age is just a number, a person living 100 years without joy is just a piece of human mass than the one living for 60 years but making most of each day. Your Attitude towards the events is what matters and sets you apart from the crowd who live everyday for the sake of living.

The true joy always lies in giving and seeing someone happy because of you, a feeling can’t be explained but can only be experienced. Believe in giving and Forgiving, as it gives peace to you and the other person as well. As such gestures will make you complete with the universe and serve your prime goal of being on this earth to keep harmony to who all comes in your life and pray for their goodwill. Hence the quote, “Add Life to years and not years to your LIFE.. “

 Many more things to share which I will through my future posts, at present will say seeya till the next time, as my boss is in the next cubicle and is approaching me.(LOL At work presently)….
