The Matrix is Real

Hi There,

I am not writing this because I have seen The Matrix hundred times. Its because I wanted the world to know that I believe it.

It's not the first time I am feeling that I am, In fact all of us are in a Matrix. There are several unsolved mystery in this world whose answer can not be given by even Science. But when we start believing in Matrix, it appears that there's no mystery at all.

There are simple questions also which make us amuse like why does someone tries to look like someone follows someone yet tries to look different ? Why does a curly hair girl want's it straight and straight haired gets it curled ? We are programmed to like the change, we are programmed to get our-self busy. In ancient Indian artifacts and literature, Vedas, its clearly mentioned that our mind is like pond with a lot of vrittis (interference) due to so many thought waves. It keeps us from self realization.

I'll keep on posting my thoughts ... on The Matrix

Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna

सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है
देखना है ज़ोर कितना बाज़ू-ए-क़ातिल में है

(ऐ वतन,) करता नहीं क्यूँ दूसरा कुछ बातचीत,
देखता हूँ मैं जिसे वो चुप तेरी महफ़िल में है
ऐ शहीद-ए-मुल्क-ओ-मिल्लत, मैं तेरे ऊपर निसार,
अब तेरी हिम्मत का चरचा ग़ैर की महफ़िल में है
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

वक़्त आने पर बता देंगे तुझे, ए आसमान,
हम अभी से क्या बताएँ क्या हमारे दिल में है
खेँच कर लाई है सब को क़त्ल होने की उमीद,
आशिकों का आज जमघट कूचा-ए-क़ातिल में है
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

है लिए हथियार दुश्मन ताक में बैठा उधर,
और हम तैयार हैं सीना लिए अपना इधर.
ख़ून से खेलेंगे होली गर वतन मुश्क़िल में है,
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

हाथ, जिन में है जूनून, कटते नही तलवार से,
सर जो उठ जाते हैं वो झुकते नहीं ललकार से.
और भड़केगा जो शोला सा हमारे दिल में है,
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

हम तो घर से ही थे निकले बाँधकर सर पर कफ़न,
जाँ हथेली पर लिए लो बढ चले हैं ये कदम.
ज़िंदगी तो अपनी मॆहमाँ मौत की महफ़िल में है,
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

यूँ खड़ा मक़्तल में क़ातिल कह रहा है बार-बार,
क्या तमन्ना-ए-शहादत भी किसी के दिल में है?
दिल में तूफ़ानों की टोली और नसों में इन्कलाब,
होश दुश्मन के उड़ा देंगे हमें रोको न आज.
दूर रह पाए जो हमसे दम कहाँ मंज़िल में है,
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

ज़िस्म भी क्या ज़िस्म है जिसमे न हो ख़ून-ए-जुनून
क्या लड़े तूफ़ान से जो कश्ती-ए-साहिल में है
सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है
देखना है ज़ोर कितना बाज़ू-ए-क़ातिल में है

What’s more important in our life ?

A question that comes again and again in our mind but unfortunately we don’t find the right answer ever. This may not be our problem, its may be because we are asking the wrong question. I believe that motto of one’s life should be to journey well. One should not think much about accidents and about reaching the destinations. In an 70 years of average life of a person, we spend 1/3rd of our life sleeping, 1/6th of life in eating and other daily routine work. On an average a person achieves at most 5 great personal milestones during a lifetime. In our context we will call it stations.

Rest of our life we spend waiting for something whose even picture is not clear. We should try something like landing on a station that you never thought of. Believe me you will be more amazed by that rather than reaching the destination that we wanted.

" Getting something less but if its unexpected, gives more happiness than getting something really big but was assumed to happen "

So let’s learn about our system, let’s try different things, this world is really big and we can spend all of our life exploring. Humans are programmed to like the change. So don’t ever fear of changes. We feel much attached to a person or thing and feel that what if he loses it? This starts the recursive chain of endless thinking, worrying and over judging the things.

So let’s make a promise that we won’t sit on same chair for long, we’ll keep switching the buses and keep trying new things in life.

" Best things in life are FREE, and you don’t need to purchase anything else to get these best things "

interesting facts about Albert Einstein

  1. He Hated Scrabble

    Aside from his favourite past-time sailing (”the sport which demands the least energy”), Einstein shunned any recreational activity that required mental agility. As he told the New York Times, “When I get through with work I don’t want anything that requires the working of the mind.”

  2. He Liked His Feet Naked

    “When I was young, I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in the sock,” he once said. “So I stopped wearing socks.” Einstein was also a fanatical slob, refusing to “dress properly” for anyone. Either people knew him or they didn’t, he reasoned - so it didn’t matter either way.

  3. Was A Rotten Speller

    Although he lived for many years in the United States and was fully bilingual, Einstein claimed never to be able to write in English because of “the treacherous spelling”. He never lost his distinctive German accent either, summed up by his catch-phrase “I vill a little t’ink”.

  4. He Smoked Like A Chimney

    A life member of the Montreal Pipe Smokers Club, Einstein was quoted as saying: “Pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment of human affairs.” He once fell into the water during a boating expedition but managed heroically to hold on to his pipe.

  5. Loathed Science Fiction

    Lest it distort pure science and give people the false illusion of scientific understanding, he recommended complete abstinence from any type of science fiction. “I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” He also thought people who claimed to have seen flying saucers should keep it to themselves.

  6. Wasn’t Much Of A Musician

    He took seven years of Violin lessons. He would relax in his kitchen with his trusty violin, stubbornly trying to improvise something of a tune. When that didn’t work, he’d have a crack at Mozart.

  7. Was Not His Preferred Drug

    At a press conference upon his arrival to New York in 1930, he said jokingly of Prohibition: “I don’t drink, so it’s all the same to me.” In fact, Einstein had been an outspoken critic of “passing laws which cannot be enforced”.

  8. Equated Monogamy With Monotony

    “All marriages are dangerous,” he once told an interviewer. “Marriage is the unsuccessful attempt to make something lasting out of an incident.” He was notoriously unfaithful as a husband, prone to falling in love with somebody else directly after the exchanging of vows.

  9. Memory Was Shot

    Believing that birthdays were for children, his attitude is summed up in a letter he wrote to his girlfriend Mileva Maric: “My dear little sweetheart … first, my belated cordial congratulations on your birthday yesterday, which I forgot once again.”

  10. Cat Suffered Depression

    Fond of animals, Einstein kept a housecat which tended to get depressed whenever it rained. Ernst Straus recalls him saying to the melancholy cat: “I know what’s wrong, dear fellow, but I don’t know how to turn it off.”

  11. No Citizenship for 5 years

    He wasn't a citizen of any country for approximately 5 years! From 1896 (when he renounced his German citizenship at only 15 years old) until 1901 (when he became a Swisscitizen)

  12. He appeared in few papers (not all) in HighSchool exam

    Contrary to
    popular belief, he didn't fail high school completely. He only made it part way through before failing at 15. He tried to skip the remainder by taking a college entrance exam, which he also failed, and was forced to finish high school anyway.

लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है,
चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है।

मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है,
चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना न अखरता है।

आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

डुबकियां सिंधु में गोताखोर लगाता है,
जा जा कर खाली हाथ लौटकर आता है।

मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में,
बढ़ता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में।

मुट्ठी उसकी खाली हर बार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

असफलता एक चुनौती है, इसे स्वीकार करो,
क्या कमी रह गई, देखो और सुधार करो।

जब तक न सफल हो, नींद चैन को त्यागो तुम,
संघर्ष का मैदान छोड़ कर मत भागो तुम।

कुछ किये बिना ही जय जय कार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।
