VANITY

Vanity

When thy insights go out of control,

Thy self belief goes helter shelter,

Thy being is being filled with negativity,

And in your person and around you,

Thou weave a web – a false love of one’s own excellence,

When inflated sense of thou personal status makes a hearth deep in thyself,

In variance with reality in its actuality,

It is a conceited high opinion next to vice,

Throwing ethics to the whirl winds,

Your “I, me and mine’ takes centre stage,

Yee make out everything happens,

Due to thee and world revolves around thee,

Thou become centre of gravity in your own household,

And at your work place, et al,

 You perceive work will take,

 A biting beating if you sidetrack,

 Even a bit from your chosen track,

Vanity is your creed,

Which you chase religiously,

With a wilder pace,

Forgetting the fable of a vane stag,

Who brimming with vanity,

Prided the fine twists and turns of his horns,

Hardly mixed up with its own clan,

With vanity gone deep in his head,

It sauntered the length & breadth of forest,

When in his conceited reverie, its horns entangled in thorny bushes,

It tried vainly to disentangle but futile its attempts were,

Vain vanity took its life and what he prided for,

Obsession with trumpeting thy own objective picture,

Heavily intoxicated with self esteem,

Mercy,  thee deem others as dumb driven cattle,

 And thou as scheming head,

With head but alas no heart,

A head full of ideas of self-idolatry, self appreciation aplenty,

Divorced from graces for others,

Others in your view are of little consequence,

Not worthy of paying even a lip-service,

Thee as a wick, emitting light and shade, thou believe,

 

This vanity is emptiness in the eyes of God,

Drunk in pride is disrespect to our Creator,

Breaking His  strictures structured for the humanity,

God forgive these humans and refine them,

And infuse in them humane mentality towards his fellow beings.

Cohesiveness- the Best Answer to our Vexing Problems

Cohesiveness- the Best Answer to our Vexing Problems

           1 and 1 makes 11 is the best manipulation -keep aside mathematics jargons. If the employees put their heads and hands together, without discrimination and without consideration to their level of efficacy, then even any job at hand could be done. Mere presence of a right individual, at the right place and at the right moment is a morale booster.  The edge that can garner to a job-at-hand is multiplied if concerned people with focused mind try solving a vexing puzzle. It has been seen in games like cricket, football, baseball etc that if all exert to their maximum potential then result is entirely positive and far reaching than different players play for their respective name and fame.

            The world is now again sliding into a recession of worst order. The condition of Euro zone is the troubled one which has become a headache number one for every nation. The classic instance of economic slide down in Italy or in Greece is adversely affecting all the economies of the world due to globalized inter-connection of all the economies.  Many countries are running huge trade deficits of high order. All the fundamentals of economy are going awry. Now, for  economic recovery all countries have to put their heads together and confront the bull of economic impoverishment squarely. Economic prudence and austerity have been debunked by some. At this juncture, unity of purpose is the best option. Now, countries whose economic clout still prevails should forget their differences and forge a united stand for focusing on economic recovery of the world at large. It is possible only with cohesive attitude. Divisive stance in economic recovery will not help.  Developed countries should just introspect ‘if the economies round the globe will slide to a limit then to which they will export their goods and service’. Globalized economics needs globalized mind set. And sooner these countries forge their head together the better for the world at large.

               It is an axiomatic that everyone including our dears and nears, are selfish to a certain degree while fulfilling their various tasks even at the family level. One cannot accomplish everything on his own. He has to rely on others for getting his job done. It is not virtually possible to be independent, except self expression, of which one is his own master.  It is paramount that we take the help of others in order to get things done in a systematic manner. It is well said that it takes two to a tango. We can hardly transact meaningfully single handedly. Wisdom, therefore, is to work in cohesion, in unison for a maximum results. A rolling stone gathers no moss should never be lost sight of. Aloofness creates physical and mental barriers, creating hurdles in optimizing our productivity in almost any field. At home or in the official job performance, it is paramount that we become an important constituent of organizational personage rather than beating our own trumpet. A single person, with or without perceptible ideas or ideals, can hardly make much impact, in big way, on the ongoing project in hand. Different ideas can merge to form a force to make the task of the organization easy. In this process, time consumed is also less. And it is also a fact that now-a-days, time factor counts a lot hence earlier a project comes to fruition the better for the organization. Union is strength is the best maxim in this scheme of things. Many a things could be accomplished differently, efficiently and with ease if many a heads merge to do a task. By this both the organization and the performers benefit immensely.  

When somebody wants something for meeting his demand(s), we feel their action as ‘fake’ and may be consider them ‘with wrong attitude’. But world depends and goes like this. Even natural phenomenon is possible with the association of different forces. Rain is possible with the help of photosynthesis, trees help us production of oxygen, and you name it and it happens with the association of different constituents. A single atom cannot make much difference. Many atoms merge to make a matter of substance and utility.

 

Similarly, in human world too, we remain depends on others to meet our demands. You are different situations and circumstances. Sometimes you are in good situations, financially or otherwise, and in other times you are not. But fact remains, you are not able to do anything in isolation. We are interdependent for fulfilment of daily needs. You should not think them as fakes. Good and bad mix together and the world’s affairs go on. No bad intention, no ill feeling. Then let us forge together and be a part of a solution. Divisiveness is not the answer for our problems to be solved, economic or otherwise.

Reverting to drachma at this juncture when the economic down slide is at the maximum. I suggest some of the following steps which the Govt should take for shoring up its economy:-

a) World as a whole should garner resources urgently under the aegis of UNO. Strict monitoring of the resources for utilization, thus made available, should be done.

b) Available resources in the country should be taped properly both man power and natural ones.

c) Frugal living by its citizens till economy is back to rails.

d) Exploitation of tourism. Greece is a historical country. It should exploit available historical places. This will bring forein resources.

Asker’s Comment:

Yes, particularly part d) which will be aided by reverting back to the drachma: better exchange rates to visit a country where sunshine is pretty certain during the summer months. And exploit the rest of the country too, rather than just Athens and the islands.

THOUGHT

THOUGHT

Thinking lingers till soul in the body remains,

It breaths its last only with demise of a being,

Reflection of our thoughts is always in our way of thinking,

And even our outlook on life is affected by our thoughts,

Innate thoughts from deep recesses of our heart are seeds for positive ideas,

 

With our thoughts, we can traverse to any annals of history,

A past, unrecorded by any historian,

Could take to unexplored dark recesses of ocean,

Where numerous unexplored histories are veiled,

And hidden from the gaze of the marauding invaders,

Somewhere ship wrecks, somewhere bodies,

Time rotten and eaten by the elements beneath,

 Telling their stories of what went wrong where,

 

Our thoughts are our makers or breakers,

Life’s success story moves with the movement of thoughts,

Dynamic thought could generate vibrant thought processes,

Positive thoughts can build the edifice of our success,

Negative thoughts will ditch  without doubt,

Life’s story starts with thought that thou stimulate,

 

Mind is the mother of our thoughts,

It sows the seeds of thoughts,

Which germinate to become plantlet,

Little by little our thinking cap makes a composite thought,

A fruit tree which if used thoughtfully give good harvest of sweet fruit,

 

‘Thinking seed’ determines how we solve our vexing problems,

By breaking down of problem into shreds for easy solution,

Quality seed for sowing,

Will create quality plant’s growth,

Mind is trained as we process the thoughts slowly but surely,

Success will follow without doubt if thoughts are peppered well with expertise,

Success depends upon the excellence of thought you create in you being,

We create volume of thoughts in our being,

Bombardment of thoughts results from all directions doubtlessly,

 

How you control those thought,

And put to productive use for optimum gain is a heady potion,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

With positive thought you see bright ray of light at the end of the tunnel,

You see a problem half fulfilled,

Rather than half undone,

A positive thought spurs you to fight on,

And devise strategies for a optimum solution,

 

Action plans for processing of thoughts is a crying need,

Measure of control has to be on our volume of thoughts,

To control thought endurance and patience is required in sufficient measure,

Truly thoughts are product of your own thinking and making,

Help in taking your boat to shore,

Will surely have effect on your life cycle,

Good mature thoughts are equivalent to good manure which we give to the plants,

For their growth and well being.

SELFLESS

SELFLESS

A class beyond others,

Whose reflection in the mirror of life,

Exhibit vividly classy clear image,

Without blur or blot,

With ease, we grasp their selflessness,

Deeply ingrained in them is greatness in immense measure,

They mix with the surrounding so easily,

That even the sturdy bestow them their coveted place,

Will jump to action when his men need – without demur,

Ever full of verve and dynamism,

To lead the battle of life from front,

Selflessness is the service they render for others,

Without exception without expectation,

Not by exertion of pressure at command,

But by gentle persuasion,

Service with a smile with nil expectation,

They are responsible for critical work of the day,

Together with his men they accomplish the job at hand,

Use heart and soul to lead their mind,

Selfless feel the people’s pulse fully,

What they actually need the most,

 They take credit or discredit,

What their men do or not do,

They are where the action is,

Not at a place where rewards are disbursed,

Listen to what your men want from them,

Not what you require from them,

Those who work for us deserve our the best,

Heart and soul put together helps to lead from the front,

Being selfless is hardest task, tough call,

Never say die for anything under the sun,

 

Weaklings are the faint in heats,

Selfish spurn challenges,

Wanting reward for doing little,

Deception is their hallmark,

To take credits for others laurels,

Without accepting any blame for wrong doing,
