Paying Respect to ancestors

Hello every one,

Today I am in the mood of salvation. The faith I believe in says, once we die we have a transition period to move to eternal space. I don’t know because I have never travelled like that yet or met anyone who have travelled. I wish I had that kind of power who can talk to spirits to find that.

Yesterday was the day in South India, everyone does pay respect to all their ancestors. The practice is simple, they all go to temple where a priest will guide them to do the rituals. One of the step is to feed the ancestors on this auspicious day. My parents both did the same yesterday. I had done this ceremony when I was in India for my Great Grand Mother, who I dearly miss. I do believe she is my guardian angel.

Today, I asked my father, why we feed ancestors only one day of the year? I asked that as a joke. To my surprise he had an answer which opened my eyes. At the same time he had logical explanation to it. I thought I should share this.

He told me when ancestor pass away, they travel to a place where 365 days earth days is one day for them. So for us humans we feed them once a year, but for them it is every day there. He also told me one day may be in future we may find that planet where they go. Just like now we know Mars days are not same as earths. So there is logic to it.

Those who read this may think I am crazy. But hey, You never know what we discover tomorrow or in the coming years. Many generations ago cell phone was not even an idea. They may have talked about it. Those days I am sure people believed that the idea is crazy. But look, now it is a reality. We may not find our ancestors living in that planet, But we could be finding a planet where one day is 365 days in earth.

Thanks for reading guys. If you like. Please comment, share, follow or read my book

Master-dating

Morning drive. Going to work. Radio personalities I listen to have a heated discussion about “master dating” One asking other one

“Are you a master dater?”

I am thinking myself what does this even mean. Someone who dates a lot of people and keep them as a secret?… I was not sure what to make out of that question.

Then the revelation came. It is the new word for “Me”time. Every one I know always says about this. I wish I had “me” time just for myself. So according to radio people, master dater is someone who goes for vacation alone, who takes a walk alone, who spends time alone. I mean quality time just for themselves.

In other words take yourself for a date….

I loved this idea… What about you guys… Comment please. I think this day and age we always think about others. What about us guys…. Can’t we spoil ourselves at least once a month. I think we should.

Lets master dating ourselves… Get well….

Taste of my book

At around 1 am…. I was asleep….

BANG

BANG

BANG…..

Someone is pounding so heavy on our door. I got up.

We were not certain who could that be. We forgot about the friend who worked for banquets. I grabbed a kitchen knife and opened the door.

He shoved me backward and got in suddenly he screamed at me to off the light and keep quiet.

I did not recognise what was developing.

When he shoved me I slumped down on the floor and I squatted there for a moment and everybody was very quiet.

Then we noticed a light outside. It was a bike or a car. I couldn’t make it to determine what kind of vehicle it was. I craved to ask him, what is going on….

He was just peeping at the vehicle outside through the window.

I have to mention, we must have squatted there for a good half an hour. I got up and inquired

“What Happened?”

He told me “Nothing”

I was like “What the hell was that then,”

He got mad at me “I told you to come with me to the banquets. Didn’t I?”

I responded “I am not ordered to go. So how can I work with you?”

He continued “Next time, you better hold back,”

I looked at all the other roommates and we all are confused.

He ran inside and changed. Then he came out. We lost our sleep anyhow.

We opened a bottle of vodka and sat down. Time was after one am. We had a few drinks. Then we took a walk out to the helipad.

My friend stopped me “What if that individual is still out there?”

I got mad “Why don’t you explain us what took place?”

Then he said what happened………

After banquets he walked back. He was alone and disturbed at the same time. We all know we should not be hitch hiking with anyone until unless we recognize who this person is.

There was a group of people who got infected with HIV, gave other people virus. So their main plan of spreading the infection was to hitchhike with someone and inject the driver with the tainted blood. Or give a ride to people and while driving inject them.

We well knew of this and we never hitch hiked.

On that day, he was very scared, and he wanted to get home. A guy with the motor bike went past him once. Then he came back again. He drives past him again.

The third time, the driver asked my friend

“Where are you going?” Do you want a ride?

My friend did not reply.

The rider went forward and halted. He remained for my friend to get near him.

Like this so far. Please read my book
