A House That Never Was

  My name is Alok, and I was working as a freelance writer.  A few days ago I got a mail to write an article about Heerapur jungle. The locals say this is one of the mysterious and haunted places of India. I took that project because they were paying me $10,000 for a single article. The place was nearly 200 km from my house, so I took my laptop, some necessary gear and drove to that place in my car. I decided to stay in that jungle because I wanted to complete the work as soon as possible.  It was around 10 pm when I reached Heerapur jungle and looking for a place to stay.

I told him that I wanted to stay there for two-three days so I could complete my work. But he didn't want any stranger to live in their house. Somehow, I managed to convince him, and he allowed me to stay

The Meaning of Success

When we hear the word success, the first thing that comes to our mind is money.  We think success means a big house, a sports car, branded clothes, and accessories, but it is not. Success is a feeling. We can only feel it but can't see it.  When we want to see success, we end up seeing the lavies lifestyle of people thinking this is what success is. Success doesn't mean rich. What is success? We know success is a journey, not a destination.  Success is like climbing a mountain peak. Maybe, the peak is not the end of the struggle, but the journey itself is beautiful. I have seen people leaving a comfortable job to follow their passion.  I have also seen people doing jobs but sacrifice their evenings and weekends to follow their passion. The pain and pleasure, the clarity and confusion, the highs and lows, the yeses and nos, the struggle, the hustle, the feeling of uncertainty, having fear in mind, and courage in the heart we are doing our work, for me this journey is a success.

Where to find success

Success is a journey, not a destination. And this journey is not going to be easy. It will have some highs and lows, some yes and no's.  Do you think   Pandava  could have won the great war of Kurukshetra if they didn't have  Lord Krishna by their side?

What Hinduism thinks about Women

Gender discrimination is one of the most common and important issues in our society. There are so many feminist movements going on these days for women's empowerment and safety. But the question is why did we need all these movements in the first place. Did our society always been a male-dominated society? No, it was not. My religion thought me men and women both are equal they are two sides of a coin. In some cases, women are superior to men.  What Hinduism thinks about women and gender discrimination.  Adi Shankaracharya wrote some beautiful lines    Shivah Shaktya yukto yadi bhavati Shaktah prabhavitum Na chedevam devo na khalu kushalah spanditumapi | Atah tvam aradhyam Hari-Hara-Virinchadibhir api Pranantum stotum vaa katham akrita-punyah prabhavati || – Soundarya Lahari 1 The most powerful God, one of the trinity Lord Siva when united with Shakti capable of creating the universe.  Without Shakti, even Lord Siva cannot stir.  You are worthy of being adored even by Lord Vishnu,

2 Ways to Live Life

“ Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” -Buddha 2 Ways to Live Life    With Expectation The first approach is to work with a goal or desire in your mind.

Why relationships fail ?

When God created the world two beautiful souls with different biological structures came together to spread and share love and passion  Man & Woman. Initially, the were very passionate about their relationship They went out and hunt together, they ate together and the intimacy in the relationship was next level.  As time passed they felt a lack of attraction in each other. They didn't know what's going in their life. There was a certain kind of tension in their body, sometimes they felt annoyed with each other. sometimes angry. sometimes frustrated and they had no idea how to deal with that. They didn't know words so it's very hard for them to communicate properly.
