Follow Me...

“Follow me” Said her, Beating on my heart, Pushing me hard, “I’m your dreams” She smiled…
“Come to me” Said her, Hugs me so dearly, With a sweet kiss of life, “I’m your hope” She smiled…
“Hold me tight,” Said her, Raising me to heaven, Above rest of men, “I’m your passion” She smiled…
“Don’t ever leave me” Said her, Holds my hand so tender, Takes my spirits so higher, “I’m your faith” She smiled…
“Follow me, With no doubt, no tear, With no regret, no fear, Move firmly and steady, I’m yours when you are ready” She smiled…

Channelizing Restlessness

People always make mistakes especially when it comes to judging themselves. The same mistake happens to me always. I always think positive about myself even though I know very well about my weaknesses as well as negative sides. I always (boastfully) visualize myself as a confident, energetic, so and so person. I always talks to myself like: “I can do this” “I can do that” “Oh that is not a big deal!” Today I got a heavy blow on my self esteem and my ego got hurt a little when I heard about ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) The symptoms of this neurobehavioral developmental disorder are: 1.Cannot remain seated if required to do so. 2.Easily distracted by external stimuli 3.Experiences difficulty on focusing on single task or play activity 4.Frequently begins another activity before completing the first 5.Feels restless mentally 6.Can’t wait for his or her turn during group activities. 7.Will often interrupt with an answer before a question is completed 8.Has problems with chores o…

Is it a Sin to be a ‘Multi-Tasker’?

There are three types of people in the world. First type focus only on one profession, strive to achieve perfection in it and also try to attain mastery over it. Second type never focuses. How can they focus if they have lot of tasks at hand? They are the persons who do lot of things in their life from accounting to writing to bungee jumping to bartending. Any way they do only one task at a time. The third type of persons does nothing! Simply (at times, painfully) we call them sloths…
You may be thinking on which group you belong to. I give you the freedom to decide on your end. Moreover, it’s your life and it is up to you. I don’t care. On my side I’m pretty well sure that I belong to the second type and more precisely, a ‘multi tasker’. As I said earlier ‘multi taskers’ usually have numbers of areas of interest and that is their sole problem. They try their hand at lot of things instead of concentrating their energy on just one thing.
“You should have a focus”, “Mister, what is your …

‘Perumbadappu Mana’: A 300 year old legacy.

‘Perumbadappu Mana’ is located at Ollukara, a locality which is 5 kilo meters away from Thrissur town in Kerala, a southern state of India. The word ‘Mana’ means house of Brahmins who tops the hierarchy of Indian caste system. This splendid landmark is around 300 years old. Modernity has brought severe damage to these ‘Manas’ which were once an integral part of the culture and heritage of Kerala. New age villas, apartments and houses has replaced all these marvelous architectural splendors but ‘Perumbadappu Mana’ still looks magnificent with a pond, family temple, ‘Paambu Kaavu’ and ‘Nallu Kettu’ only because of the persistent effort of its members. Since this ‘Mana’ belongs to Brahmins who are basically scholars and priests, it is blessed with a wide, invaluable collection of books which are mostly written on coconut leaves. It also has a wide array of equipments which are used for Poojas or worships. The roof, ladders and storage rooms are made up of teak and mahogany which gives st…
