A rare conversation between Ramkrishna Paramahansa & Swami Vivekananda

Q1. Swami Vivekanand:- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

A1. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

Q2. Swami Vivekanand:- Why has life become complicated now?

A2. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Stop analyzing life.. It makes it complicated. Just live it.

Q3. Swami Vivekanand:- Why are we then constantly unhappy?

A3. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

Q4. Swami Vivekanand:- Why do good people always suffer?

A4. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

Q5. Swami Vivekanand:- You mean to say such experience is useful?

A5. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons .

Q6. Swami Vivekanand:- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…

A6. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

Q7. Swami Vivekanand:- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?

A7. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Q8. Swami Vivekanand:- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

A8. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Q9. Swami Vivekanand:- What surprises you about people?

A9. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”

Q10. Swami Vivekanand:- How can I get the best out of life?

A10. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Q11. Swami Vivekanand:- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

A11. Ramkrishna Paramahansa:- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

The Curious Case of RONALD OPUS – A Bizzare Legal Case

At the 1994 annual awards dinner given for Forensic Science, AAFS President Dr Don Harper Mills astounded his audience with the legal complications of a bizarre death.
Here is the Case:

On March 23, 1994 the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound to the head. Mr. Opus had jumped from the top of a ten-story building intending to commit suicide. He left a note to the effect indicating his despondency. As he fell past the ninth floor his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through a window, which killed him instantly. Neither the shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety net had been installed just below the eighth floor level to protect some building workers and that Ronald Opus would not have been able to complete his suicide the way he had planned.

“Ordinarily,” Dr Mills continued, “A person, who sets out to commit suicide and ultimately succeeds, even though the mechanism might not be what he intended, is still defined as committing suicide.” That Mr. Opus was shot on the way to certain death, but probably would not have been successful because of the safety net, caused the medical examiner to feel that he had a homicide on his hands.

The room on the ninth floor, where the shotgun blast emanated, was occupied by an elderly man and his wife. They were arguing vigorously and he was threatening her with a shotgun. The man was so upset that when he pulled the trigger he completely missed his wife and the pellets went through the window striking Mr. Opus. When one intends to kill subject “A” but kills subject “B” in the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject “B”. 

When confronted with the murder charge the old man and his wife were both adamant and both said that they thought the shotgun was unloaded. The old man said it was a long standing habit to threaten his wife with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention to murder her. Therefore the killing of Mr. Opus appeared to be an accident; that is, if the gun had been accidentally loaded.

The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old couple’s son loading the shotgun about six weeks prior to the fatal accident. It transpired that the old lady had cut off her son’s financial support and the son, knowing the propensity of his father to use the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the expectation that his father would shoot his mother. Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of the murder even though he didn’t actually pull the trigger. The case now becomes one of murder on the part of the son for the death of Ronald Opus.

Now comes the exquisite twist. 

Further investigation revealed that the son was, in fact, Ronald Opus. He had become increasingly despondent over the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother’s murder. This led him to jump off the ten-story building on March 23rd, only to be killed by a shotgun blast passing through the ninth story window. The son had actually murdered himself, so the medical examiner closed the case as a suicide.  

A true story from Associated Press. Reported by Kurt Westervelt.

Been through these Phases

I’ve personally experienced these phases and saw fit for want to be entrepreneurs to frame it in their drawing room!!

 This is why you must not give up;

  • You haven’t tried everything!!
  • You are closer to success than you think!!
  • If you don’t finish, then someone would!!
  • Right before success there is a dark phase!!
  • You will never regret trying until the end!!
  • It’s better to die trying than giving up!!
  • Past failure does not predict the future!!
  • As long as you are alive, anything is still possible!!!

Sleep Deprived

Yesterday got too enthusiastic about my blog update and for this weeks sales and delivery planning… Got so obsessed that I couldn’t sleep for more than 2 hours!!

By far it was productive night where I made around 10+ blog post, planned sales & delivery strategy, did some personal finance management and finally ended everything with a 3.5KM walk in the morning..

Immediately took a shower and proceeded to office.. It is surprising that I was feeling fresh till 3PM… Just started feeling a bit drowsy and got a bit of caffeine to boost myself!!!


Hope I can finish this day with a high note as this is the beginning of the week!!!

What happened to my BLOGGING??

Once blogging use to be a habit without which I couldn’t close my day!! It was real hard practice, perceivarance and discipline which helped to make it a habit!!! Over all this habit helped me in;

  • Improving my communication skills!!
  • Improved my vocabulary!!!
  • Expressing my thoughts!!
  • Documenting my daily life!!
  • Experiencing Challenges!!
  • Getting New Friends!!
  • Becoming Open & Transparent!!
  • Venting out frustration!!

As days passed this habit slowly became an addiction!!! This addiction made;

  • Me stretch my day to finish my blog post!!
  • Me depressed if I fail to make a blog post!!
  • Me do unwanted things to make a blog post!!
  • Me too transparent and open person!!
  • Me loose my reputation sometimes!!

In spite of all those negatives it helped me feel free and expose my rightful image. I was able to move without carrying any burden on my shoulder!!! 

But I wanted to stop blogging for some time because I thought that I should not get addicted to anything or do anything because of addiction!! So, I voluntarily stopped blogging for some time!!

By the time I got convinced that I was de-addicted and ready to start my blogging I got married.. Then on I couldn’t be the same transparent and open person.. There were things which my wife couldn’t tolerate and accept.. I had to hide things to her in order to avoid hurting her.. I fell into the trap of mediocrity!! So, I couldn’t blog any longer :(

Frankly I do not want to show prejudice between my wife and parents.. I want to be the same transparent person the way I did with my parents..

Today while I was driving back alone from my wife’s native to Madurai I was thinking;

  • Why I stopped blogging for marriage?? 
  • Was I right or wrong in doing so??

Then I realised that the relationship and bond we carry with our parents are naturally stiched and we dare to take it for granted.. But with marriage we are building a bond which has to carefully crafted and stiched!!

I feel it was better sacrifice to hold my blog and my natural trait for the sake of building a relationship!! 

Not sure how far we have crossed as a couple and the depth in our bond??

Should I start Blogging or Wait for some more time??

Just want to try it out with small doses :)

Hope Yamuna reads this blog sometime or some day and makes a comment :)

Tamil Litrature explaining important aspects of life!!

Got startled when I came across this tamil quote… The words used in the quote is almost non-existent in today’s modern tamil… But the message conveyed thousand years back is mind blowing!! Not sure where we lost our heritage!!! Not many Tamils know or realise that our own literature can help us in planning our career and personal life!! 

Tamils those days spoke about importance of wealth, education, poverty & insult… These facts of life can be applied any time until the mankind exist!!! 

திரு விற்றலுடைய தில்லை –யொருவற்குக் 
கற்றலின் வாய்த்த பிறவில்லை–எற்றுள்ளும் 
இன்மையின்னாத தில்லையில் லேன்னாத 
வன்மையின் வன்பாட்ட தில். 

Nothing is more powerful than wealth. 
Nothing is higher than the education. 
Nothing is more painful than poverty. 
Nothing is stronger than avoiding rejection to a begger.

Beautiful letter written by a father to his son!!

Following is a letter to his son from a renowned Hong Kong TV broadcaster cum Child Psychologist.

The words are actually applicable to all of us, young or old, children or parents.! 

This applies to daughters too. 

Dear son ,

I am writing this to you because of 3 reasons

  1. Life, fortune and mishaps are unpredictable, nobody knows how long he lives. Some words are better said early.
  2. I am your father, and if I don’t tell you these, no one else will.
  3. What is written is my own personal bitter experiences that perhaps could save you a lot of unnecessary heartaches. Remember the following as you go through life;
  • Do not bear grudge towards those who are not good to you. No one has the responsibility of treating you well, except your mother and I. To those who are good to you, you have to treasure it and be thankful, and ALSO you have to be cautious, because, everyone has a motive for every move. When a person is good to you, it does not mean he really likes you. You have to be careful, don’t hastily regard him as a real friend.
  • No one is indispensable, nothing is in the world that you must possess. Once you understand this idea, it would be easier for you to go through life when people around you don’t want you anymore, or when you lose what/who you love most.
  • Life is short. When you waste your life today, tomorrow you would find that life is leaving you. The earlier you treasure your life, the better you enjoy life.
  • Love is but a transient feeling, and this feeling would fade with time and with one’s mood. If your so called loved one leaves you, be patient, time will wash away your aches and sadness. Don’t over exaggerate the beauty and sweetness of love, and don’t over exaggerate the sadness of falling out of love.
  • A lot of successful people did not receive a good education, that does not mean that you can be successful by not studying hard! Whatever knowledge you gain is your weapon in life. One can go from rags to riches, but one has to start from some rags!
  • I do not expect you to financially support me when I am old, neither  would I financially support your whole life. My responsibility as a supporter ends when you are grown up. After that, you decide whether  you want to travel in a public transport or in your limousine, whether rich or poor.
  • You honour your words, but don’t expect others to be so. You can be good to people, but don’t expect people to be good to you. If you don’t understand this, you would end up with unnecessary troubles.
  • I have bought lotteries for umpteen years, but I could never strike any prize. That shows if you want to be rich, you have to work hard! There is no free lunch!
  • No matter how much time I have with you, let’s treasure the time we have together. We do not know if we would meet again in our next life.

Your Dad
