Donkey Worship

untitled (1 of 1)
Donkey worship

Usually the words ‘Donkey” “Ass” are used in a derogatory way ( Dumb ass,Jackass etc meaning people who are stupid or of very low intelligence ), even parading the donkeys during the times of Protests ( i don’t know about other countries but in India, it is a common occurrence). May be a kind of public humiliation.I do not know  why should Donkey be referred  as a stupid creature,when it is said to be an intelligent creature. I think it is the usual dominant human trait  to do injustice to the  donkey .

The other day I was surprised to come across a hung photo frame of two donkeys with Flower Garland,  at the entrance point in one of the shops.The flower indicates that Donkey is being worshiped ,daily.The local language in the photo mentions that ” Have a look at the Donkeys…. and Good fortune follows ” So I realized it is a good Omen to see Donkey face in the morning before one ventures into the routine tasks.So I was glad Donkeys are given due respect,they deserve.

As I googled I learnt a new term ONOLATRY which means Donkey worshiping,used in ancient times.

I learnt that ‘Sheetala Ashtami’ (March-April) celebrated in Rajasthan ( North Indian State) when woman folks worship the Donkey,for well being of children and people.Goddess Sheetala is said to be Goddess of Smallpox and Goddess Sheetala’s Photo frame along with a broom and water filled pot are  kept on the Donkey.Why the Donkey is chosen for this purpose…I am not sure.May be friends from Rajasthan can enrich us with better understanding

‘Attack’ of different kind

Attack
One is aware of Heart attack,panic attack,enemy attack,,mob attack,shark attack,missile attack,bees attack…. but here we are getting awareness of different kind of attack

In the first instance of Hot attack ,I can understand tea,coffee,snacks,tiffin and meals being served ‘Hot’.Iam wondering how Fresh Juice can be served ‘Hot’ ?

In the second instance …Go kart is a popular sporting game,seen in amusement parks,brilliantly named as ‘Kart Attack’ getting one’s attention immediately.As a medical man I am aware of CART ( Chimeric Antigen Receptor Targeting) in treatment of leukemia

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say: “Hey look.That one is shaped like an idiot” picturequotes.com”

Mother Nature is always wonderful to watch…….if only one has time,inclination and patience to watch.

Seriously talking, how many of us look up to watch the sky and the way clouds are formed at that particular moment ? Some even may say ….so what is so great ??

In the above photo,you would have noticed the clouds. See how they are arranged,with the lovely blue color background as if the Nature has used the brush strokes on the canvass.

Look up to the sky,watch the cloud formation or disintegration and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature .Remember it is the greatest free show by Mother Nature !!

No by two / one by two.. Phrase

untitled-1-of-1-48
No sharing please !!

Have you ever heard of this English language before ?

No by two …or  One by two,   is a funny phrase typically used in India.No other country in the world uses this phrase to my knowledge.

This phrase is typically heard at tea/coffee/soup/juice shops. What does this phrase convey?

One by two :   Here the item is divided into two roughly equal portions for sharing and invariably the shop owner has to provide an extra cup,without charging.Now the two friends can share the cup of coffee equally between them,just paying only for one cup.

No by Two:   Here the shop owner ( by displaying a notice as shown in the photo ) makes it clear that sharing of one cup of coffee is not allowed ,neither he is willing to give an extra empty cup or glass

Your life is a Reflection….of your Thoughts……..

untitled-1-of-1-37
Try not to take things Personally: What people say about you  is a ‘Reflection’ of them,not you.

Be a reflector of what you’d like to see in others !

If you want Love, give Love

If you want honesty, give honesty

if you want respect, give respect

You get in return, what you give

Magic of number ‘7’

Number 7…The Magic Number !!

Sitting in the back seat of the car, the other day I was trying to take a photo of the Car Light trails with my HTC mobile.
To my surprise all the lights were resembling the Number 7 !!

Of course I am not sure of the Physics behind this ,but I can tell you about the Importance of the Number -7.

7-Skies,7-Heavens,7-Seas,
7 –Climes,7-Days,7-Dwarves,
7-Sins,7-yr old ( turning point in childhood development)
7-Colours in Rainbow,7-Petals of Rose,
7-Continents,7-Body Orifices,
7-Notes in the Musical Scale,
7-Sages of Hinduism ( Saptharishis)
7-Virtues,7-layers of the OSI model ( Computers )
Rule of 7 ( Business World too likes number 7 !! )

Any idea about – 7 Year itch ?

Looks like one can go on & on………


“The Pissing Tanker”

I have learned that pleasing everyone is too hard,but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake

Who cares what anybody thinks of me ……Freedom to do,  What I want to do is  my  birth right  ….What a relief  man Don’t disturb me ….umm……..I love my country and myself …. No need to prove ! Hats off to the extreme liberty I am entitled from my country !!!!! God is great !!

Hang’em Dry

untitled
Life is too short to wear boring cloths

With rise in Electricity charges,drying cloths in the balcony of of multi floor apartments has become a common sight.

Earlier it used be an eyesore and now it has become an accepted norm.

I understand it is illegal in some Countries,not sure which country.

Definitely  balcony becoming a Laundry is a ‘Go Green’ phenomenon.

Food for thought….Yearly Emissions created by Electric cloth drying is equivalent to burning of 114 gallons of gasoline in an automobile,It will take 46 trees on full year to clean up the co2 !

 

Red→Sign of Danger ?

red-sing-of-danger-1-of-1
I finally realized it.People are prisoners of their Phones.That is why they are called ‘Cell’ Phones

Why the Red color is associated with Danger ?

Most of the Sign Boards showing DANGER AHEAD is painted in Red .Is there any psychological basis ?

As you notice in the photo

The gentleman’s shirt is red,the Lady’s churidar ( churidar pyjamas are tightly fitting trousers worn by both men & woman in South Asia ) is red,her footwear is red in color,the paint on the wall and so of its border .Is this observation just a coincidence ?

Present day, people are hooked/addicted to the cell phones so much that they forget their immediate  surrounding making them unaware of the dangers in the front.

In this photo, if you closely observe ,  the lady’s foot is on the manhole cover and she is busy chatting.

Imagine for a second ,  the ‘fate’ ……if the manhole cover is absent or partially removed for repair etc …Ankle sprains to fracture to head injury to sometimes death !

Now, blessings light on him that first invented sleep! It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot. It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even. ~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605

Feast on Banana Leaf

Feast is one happy occasion everybody loves and enjoys.

Feast is complete with main courses and desserts.

As you can notice in this photo,the Guests who are there for the Feast,keeping their hands ( as if pre planned  )across as if they are united in refusing to be served even before the Host started serving the food……Amazing sight !!!

What the Hell is happening here ?

Some interesting facts about eating on Banana leaves.

The traditional South Indian meal includes eating on a banana leaf,instead of Plates as in the rest of India.

Food is relished by eating with Hands ( hand to mouth !!).

It is said that the food tastes best and eating in banana leaves helps in easy digestion.

The rule is,bigger side of the leaf should be on your Right hand side.

The Leaf is washed with water before serving the food. ( to remove the dirt ).

Disposable of used leaves is easy unlike Plastic stuff, thus eco friendly.
