ಎದುರಲ್ಲಿ ಮಹಾನ್ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರು ಇದ್ದರೂ ಮನಸ್ಸಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಮರುಕ ಇತ್ತು. ಇತ್ತ ಕ್ರೀಸ್ ಗೇಲ್ ಪಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಮುತ್ತಯ್ಯ ಮುರಳಿಧರನ್ ಇದ್ದರು ಎನೋ ಕಳೆದುಕೋಂಡ ಭಾವನೆ ಇತ್ತು. ಅಪರೂಪಕ್ಕೋಂದು ಸೀಗೋ ಇಂಥ ಅವಕಾಶದಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ್ ವಿರಟ್ ಕೊಹ್ಲಿನೋ, ಯುವಿ’ನೋ ಅಥವಾ ಎಬಿಡಿ’ನೋ ಇಲ್ಲವಲ್ಲಾ ಅನ್ನೋ ಹತಾಶೆ!
ಅನ್ ಲೈನ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಷ್ಟ/ಇಷ್ಟಪಟ್ಟು ಗೆದ್ದಿದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ಸರಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕೀದ್ದೆ ಸಾಕು ಈ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರನ್ನೇ “ಮಿಟ್ ಅಂಡ್ ಗ್ರಿಟ್” ಮಾಡೊ ಸಮಯ ಇನ್ನೇನು ಹತ್ತಿರದಲ್ಲೇ ಇತ್ತು. ಆಟೋಗ್ರಫ್ ಪುಸ್ತಕ ಒಂದು ಕೈಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತೇ ಜೇಬಲ್ಲಿ ಪೇನ್ನ್ ಇರೋದನ್ನ ಕನ್ ಫರ್ಮ್ ಮಾಡ್ಕೋಂಡು ನನ್ನ ಕ್ಷಣಗಳಿಗೆ ರೆಡಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದೆ.
ಇನ್ನೆನು ನಾನು ಮುಂದಕ್ಕೆ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಇಟ್ಟೆ, ಆ ಕಡೆಯಿಂದ ಸೈಲೆಂಟಾಗಿ ಬಾಗಿಲು ಓಪನ್ ಅಯ್ತು.. ನೋಡುದ್ರೇ ಅದು ಯುವರಾಜ್ ಸಿಂಗ್… ಮುಖದಲ್ಲಿ ನಗೆ ಮನಸ್ಸಲ್ಲಿ ಎಲ್ಲಿಲ್ಲದ ಸಂತೋಷ! ಯುವಿ ಬಂದ ಯುವಿ ಬಂದ ಅನ್ನೋ ಖುಷಿ! ಈ ಖುಷಿ ಮದ್ಯ ಒಂದು ಚಡಪಡಿಕೆ ಯುವಿ ನನ್ನ ಫೋಟೊ ಫ಼್ರೆಮ್ ಗೆ ಬರ್ತನೋ ಇಲ್ವೋ ಅಂತ! ಹೀಗೆ ಮನಸಲ್ಲೇ ಅಂದುಕೋಳ್ಳುತ್ತ.. ಮುಂದೆ ಹೋದೆ ಗೇಲ್, ಮುರಳಿ ಮತ್ತು ವರುಣ್ ಮಿಟ್ ಮತ್ತೇ ಗ್ರಿಟ್ ಮಾಡಿದಾಗ ಎದುರಿಂದ ಫೊಟೊಗ್ರಾಪರ್ ಫೋಟೊ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ಕಿಸಲು ರೇಡಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದ ಮತ್ತು ನನಗೆ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಿಲ್ಲಲು ಸಲಹೆ ಮಾಡಿದ, ಇನ್ನೇನು ನಿಲ್ಲುವ ಕ್ಷಣಕ್ಕೆ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ‘ಯುವಿ” ನನ್ನ ಫ್ರೇಮಿಗೆ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ. ಕೇಳಬೇಕಾ ಇನ್ನಾ?? ಫುಲ್ಲ್ ಖುಷಿ…
ಹಾಂಗೆ ಒಂದ್ ಸ್ಟೆಪ್ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋಗಿ “ ಹಾಯ್ ಯುವಿ ಸಾರ್” ಅಂದೆ!
ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಯುವಿ : ಹಾಯ್ ಅಂದ
ನಾನು : ಒನ್ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ ಸಾರ್ ಅಂದೆ!
ಯುವಿ : ನೋ ನೋ.. ನೋ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ’ಸ್ ಅಂದ…
ಅವ್ನ್ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ ಕೊಡ್ಲಿಲ್ವಲ್ಲ ಅನ್ನೋ ಬೇಜರ್ ಗಿಂತ ಅವನ್ ಜೋತೆ ಮಾತಡಿದ್ದು ಬಹಳ ಖುಷಿ ಅನ್ಸುತ್ತು…
ಬ್ಲಾಕ್ ಅಂಡ್ ವೈಟ್ ಟಿ.ವಿಯಿಂದ ಶುರುವಾಗಿದ್ದ ಕ್ರಿಕೆಟ್ ಹುಚ್ಚು ಕೋನೆಗೂ ಈ ಆಟದ ಲೆಜೆಂಡ್ ಗಳನ್ನ ನೋಡಿ ಮಾತನಾಡಿಸೋ ಒಂದು ಕ್ಷಣ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದು ಖುಷಿನೇ ಸರಿ. ಆದರಲ್ಲು ನನಗೆ ಯುವಿ’ಯ ರಿಪ್ಲೇ ಇನ್ನು ಇಗ ಕೇಳಿದ ಹಾಗೆ ಬಾಸವಾಗುತ್ತೇ!

Nothing is permanent in this world not even anyone or anything. But when it comes to LIFE, Only one remains and that is LOVE! After having a busy or even you call it a hectic schedule as for as bankers are concerned, today i got some relax and time to sleep for most of the TIME. As soon as i woke up in the afternoon 😛 i read some of the messages that sent in the groups of Whats-app. And i don’t know why? but this message has stood across them and STANDS TALL and provokes me to share in my blog as well. Yes it’s WORTH a sharing.
A woman saw THREE saints in front of her house. She did not know any of them.
She said – “Kindly come inside and have food.”
The saints replied – “Is your husband inside the house?”
Woman – “No, he has gone out.”
Saints – “Will step into the house only when he is there.”
In the evening when the woman’s husband returns home, she tells him about the saints.
Husband – “Go and tell them I am home, and invite them inside the house.”
She went out and called the saints inside the house.
The saints now said – “We all don’t go inside anyone’s house together.”
“But why?” – the woman asked.
One of the saints replied – “My name is WEALTH.”
Then he pointed to the other saints and said –
“These two saints’ names are ‘PROSPERITY‘ and ‘LOVE‘.
Only one of us can come inside your house!
You go in, discuss with your family and decide which saint you want to invite.”
The woman went inside and told her husband all about this.
He was excited.
He said – “If this is the matter, let us invite wealth! Our house will then be filled with happiness.”
Wife – “I feel we should invite PROSPERITY.”
Their daughter was in the next room. She was listening to the discussions. She came outside and said –
“I feel we should invite LOVE. Nothing is more important.”
“You are right, we should invite LOVE only.” – her parents agreed.
The woman went out and asked the saints –
“Who is LOVE? Please come inside the house.”
Love started walking towards the house!
The other two saints started following LOVE.
The surprised woman asked the saints –
“I only invited LOVE. Why are you two also coming inside the house?”
One of the saints replied – “If you had invited PROSPERITY or WEALTH, only that saint would have entered your house.
But you have invited LOVE!
LOVE never walks alone.
Where ever there’s LOVE, there’s PROSPERITY and WEALTH. They all go hand in hand.”
Recently I was invited for a house warming ceremony of my senior colleague. As it was unfortunately fallen on a working day, I was made to ping their new palace in the evening. Yeah, it’s his dream house, where he has put his hard earned soul into it. He’s been mumbling very habitually during the free time of our work. As I went in the evening to see his dream outcome, I made only to intellect the waste’s of food and empty water bottles. The newly built house couldn’t make the big impression as these wastes were ruling his palace like anything. We were experiencing the same things in many occasions, house may be new, may be his dream. But it fails grasp the attraction in the first look as that portray something in the scenario that has created because of the house warming ceremony event. 😦
Well, this is the same sort of circumstances which is going to happen to us in the near future or already happening to us?? If we visit any historical places, beautiful places etc.. Usually we visit these places to get rid ourselves from daily working chaos. But if we find the things like that means… Who is responsible for that? It’s not completely my colleague’s responsibility but it’s equally shared by the guests who involved in the ceremony event. Either he could’ve made a proper arrangements or guests could’ve behaved wisely to not to throw the wastes everywhere.
Unlike many other countries, India is the most beautiful and rich in heritage country, where we were proud of having such a beautiful places, monuments, temples, hills, waterfalls etc. though we already facing few problems to maintain our heritage because of fast growing population, increase in the pollution and global warming. Its good time to do good to preserve the rich diversity and heritage of our country. Let’s take a pledge to preserve this beauty to our next generation also, agree right?? So I will shoot few steps to which are NOT to do in any of places. 🙂
: Avoid going tours and trips on bikes, as it may thrills you in the initial days, but it back fires by increasing global pollution. Why can’t you travel together?? And it’s fits for your budget too… Think…
: Do not try to “leave your mark” / love stories” on the places you visit. Yes, I have seen many monuments, historical places and temples where the visitors have scripted their names or their lover names on the beautiful architectures and on the stone sculptures. Sometimes it makes visitors to forget where they are? Please avoid these sorts of activities.
: Avoid leaving your old clothes that are used while swimming or enjoying the purity of water that falls from many heights. It looks like mini garbage to the next visitors. So make sure to not to threw any clothes and other stuffs.
: Avoid throwing food, food packets and water bottles in the places you visit. It really causes a bad impression and tries to carry your own unique bottle and boxes for the tourist spots or to anywhere. 🙂
: Most important. Don’t litter anywhere. The most common this that is happening here is wherever people saw this sign-board’s of “ Do not litter here “ and “ Do not Urinate here” they started doing that. 😛 For heaven sake don’t do these things and try to keep the places clean and healthy. 🙂
These things can be achieved by joining the hands together. Yes, let’s do it and become a responsible human and as well as a responsible tourist to maintain the legacy of our motherland. In spite of the decline of many number of tourist places in India just because of improper maintenances. It’s really heartening to see if we, the younger generation has to come-up with an interest and keen to take this responsibility. 🙂
Someone who is MADE of Great, Yes without any second thought it’s my mother and I am just MAD of her greatness. No words describe the greatness of a mother that she has poured into his child and I really… really fortune and blessed enough to get a beautiful picture perfect MadeofGreat Mother.
Though I am not satisfied enough to describe the greatness of my mom but it’s my pleasure to convey at least the minimum love to my mom by writing this little thing. A poor girl born and brought up in a little rural area where they strive hard for daily wages and where the pure meaning of poverty lies. And that little girl is now a mother of an Engineer and a Doctor. Imagine the effort that she has poured and she is still pouring too.
An uneducated girl who works hard like an old buffalo just to make sure her family to get the basic daily bread is not an easy job that what we are doing now. The world has changed now and we are too. But just give a glimpse that how was that life? Yes, we dare to imagine the lifestyle and the life in those 1990’s and the early 20th century. But she did brilliantly well and It’s me and my brother are the living examples to her astounding work and greatness.
She pulled the family like an ox attached to bullock cart, with holding her feelings, ambitions and dreams in her eyes. She has fought like a man to get her rights to survive her family. Those moments are still in my eyes. She never took her bread before feeding to us no matter she’d worked 24/7 nonstop. She is almost sacrificed her body and soul for giving the best possible education and lifestyle to her sons. My eyes become wet again and again if I imagined the amazedness’ that she has packed on us.
What do you think of Tata Motor’s association with Lionel Messi?
Our compassion for the things closer to life, fills our heart with the purpose, ultimately, embark on a journey full of life. Yes, I miss the good old days where I playing with toys and always eager buy new things when we visit to any fairs and festivals in our villages! Yes, those are the days where I fortunate to be lavished with the love of my parents and my grandparents, with it all my innocent demands were fulfilled. 🙂
When i don’t get what I want, I found that crying out loud is the best choice; it had a remarkable effect on my home. Where my grandpa would come running and take me always, the result would be given playthings or chocolates to calm me down. This is what I used to do when I am around 4 or 5 years old. I would easily snuggle up into the laps of my family members and unmindful of the chaos I had created. Settle down to play with the new object or bunch of playthings! Many things that made my childhood awesome where I am happy with the smallest of the things without any discrimination even a handmade aero plane and paper boats were a history for me. 😛
Yes, childhood is like that only. But I always wish someone could’ve recorded my lovely chaos that I done in my childhood. As soon as I heard the Ad of Colgate, where they offering a surprise freebies inside the box, the little sparkle inside me has shined that what will happen if I give this box to my niece and capture her little pretty excitements, emotions and puppy expressions, As in today’s era of instantaneous gratification where my memory is fickle, the concept of action and its memory has greater significance. 🙂
Hmmm, then I went to a store and bought the packets of Colgate toothpaste with freebie printed on it. The beauty of it is, it invoked me also as it’s a surprise freebie, where nobody knows what’s inside. Then I returned home and give it my little niece Gayathri, and I am all set with my mobile camera to capture her real expressions and excitements live! She is surprised and her cute smile remembers my childhood days and she started unpacking the box by seeking my permission. I am also pretty excited to see the suspense surprise element in the box and finally she got a ROYAL MEMBER inside that box. Then she carefully tear the box to unlocks her pirates of the kingdom and she started to release her attached members carefully by cutting nicely using scissor and started arranging them in a particular order as like in game of chess. As she saw me playing chess in my lappy and she identifies her ROYAL MEMBERS after cutting them nicely and started playing all the day with it. 🙂
Yes, it really made me to rejuvenate my childhood memories, its keeps us happy and active throughout the day. It enlivened our soul and drives out the boredom! That Smile on her face has given the energy that lasts all the day through and filled me with special refreshing feelings. 🙂
Watch the above videos, that’s how my niece opened the surprise box and happily playing with her ROYAL FAMILY, these memories are truly ecstatic 🙂
