Love Actually: Coma can't put a fullstop to this tale

I was so touched by this news story that I just had to post it here to share with world at large! Well,
hai sabhee kuchh jahaan me, dostee hain wafaa hain

apanee ye kamanaseebee, hum ko naa kuchh bhee milaa hain


Mumbai: College romances are meant to be fun, laughter and companionship. But for 23-year-old Sunny Pawar, companionship has assumed a new meaning.

His girlfriend, Aarti Macwan, met with a serious accident a year-and-a-half ago and has been in coma ever since.

Sunny says Aarti - his girlfriend of of two-and-a-half years - was a cheerful, independent girl. But now she needs to be cared for 24 hours a day.

“I spent 15 months with Aarti before the accident and 15 months after. It’s those 15 months that have forced me, motivated me and given me the determination to go on,” says Sunny.

Sunny was a student before the accident but he has now given up his studies to take care of Aarti. He feeds her, keeps her clean, talks to her and takes care of all her daily needs.

Aarti's mother Bharati Macwan can only marvel at this young boy whose role has transcended way beyond the regular boyfriend.

“He is a male member and taking care of my daughter and serving her like anything even before marriage. He' s her boyfriend, he's her father,” she says.

Struggling with financial difficulties and the inevitable depression, Sunny pins up poems and positive messages on the wall opposite Aarti’s bed.

And even though this unique couple isn't bound in a marriage, they are already living their vows - together in sickness and in health, till death do them apart.

All of India is mine!

Yes, Mr Raj Thackeray, you are highly mistaken and also just shrugging off that your party members are not responsible for deaths in Nasik does not resolve you of the responsibility you hold as a leader of a party which you incited into mob violence! You indeed did incite hatred between communities which were living quite peacefully.
Yes, you can keep harping about protecting Marathi manush rights but I stand for only rights of an Indian. I also have complete right to speak which ever language I feel comfortable in and find viable to communicate even if it is not the local language. Your Marathi manush has all the rights to go to any part of India and find employment too. Yes he can keep speaking in Marathi if he so wishes and is able to get his thoughts across!
Its so obvious that Mr Raj and like-minds are only doing this to gain political mileage. A case so similar to BJP's agitation at price rise of petrol and diesel; gasoline is hitting $100/barrel in international markets but BJP is against the raise in prices by Rs.2! This is called as playing with people's sentiments and gaining political mileage!
Mr Raj Thackerey chooses to close his eyes on the development of infrastructure, well being of the country as whole and inevitable movement of people across states in search of employment. Haven't lakhs of people moved from all parts of country to cities which are IT/ITES centers? That also includes the 'Marathi manush'!
I am not really for suppressing the local culture especially since thats what makes our country so colorfully diverse and vibrant; but one cannot suppress development and change! Due to the winds of change some local flavors are surely going to get mixed up with other prevalent cultures. We should be ready to accept these changes too! Gol-gappas will be called pani-puris and Aloo-tikki will renamed batata-vada etc.
I really do wish Mr Raj Thackerey reads this and it drives some sense into his brains. I would repeat my demand for apology from Mr Raj Thackerey to not just people of India but also poor migrant workers in Maharastra from whom Mr Raj Thackeray's party stole bread and water since they had to leave their only livelihood and go back to their villages in hope that things would settle down and they could come back to their jobs and give their families a better living.

Are you listening Mr Thackerey? kaay vichaar kara? ei changala nahi! :-) :D


Views of Hindu traditions on karma
Scriptures divide Karma into three kinds: Sanchita (accumulated), Prarabdha (fruit-bearing) and Kriyamana (current) karma. All kriyamana karmas become sanchita karma upon completion. From this stock of sanchita karma, a handful is taken out to serve one lifetime and this handful of actions which has begun to bear fruit and which will be exhausted only on their fruit being enjoyed and not otherwise, is known as prarabdha karma. In this way, so long as the stock of sanchita karma lasts, a part of it continues to be taken out as prarabdha karma for being enjoyed in one lifetime, leading to the cycles of birth and death. A jiva cannot attain Moksha until the accumulated sanchita karmas are completely exhausted.

God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Just. Yet injustice is observed to persist in the world. How is this possible?
In the Advaita school of Vedanta, this problem is dealt with in detail by Sankara in his commentary on the Brahma Sutras, 2.1.34-36:
Brahma Sutra 2.1.34: "No partiality and cruelty (can be charged against God) because of (His) taking other factors into consideration."
Sankara's commentary explains that God cannot be charged with partiality or cruelty (i.e. injustice) on account of his taking the factors of virtuous and vicious actions (Karma) performed by an individual in previous lives. If an individual experiences pleasure or pain in this life, it is due to virtuous or vicious action (Karma) done by that individual in a past life.
Brahma Sutra 2.1.35: "If it be argued that it is not possible (to take Karma into consideration in the beginning), since the fruits of work remain still undifferentiated, then we say, no, since the transmigratory state has no beginning."
The opponent now argues that there could have been no "previous birth" at the very beginning of creation, before which Karma could not have existed. Sankara replies that it is not so, for the number of creation cycles is beginningless, vide the next verse:
Brahma Sutra 2.1.36: "Moreover, this is logical, and (so) it is met with (in the scriptures)."
Sankara provides references from the Vedas concerning the beginninglessness of Creation: "The Ordainer created the sun and moon like those of previous cycles" (Rig Veda 10.190.3). This shows the existence of earlier cycles of creation, and hence the number of creation cycles is beginningless.
Thus Sankara's resolution to the Problem of Injustice is that the existence of injustice in the world is only apparent, for one merely reaps the results of one's moral actions sown in a past life, which is compatible with the Justness of an Omniscient and Omnipotent God.
On the higher level of Existence, however, there is no evil or good, since these are dependent mainly on temporal circumstances. Hence a jnani, one who has realized his true nature, is beyond such dualistic notions.

India defeat Australia in thriller

I am so very happy at India's win at Melborne in todays One day match. India recorded a win at the MCG against Australia after 22 years as the last win came in year 1986.


jab kuch nahi raha to
aankhon ke motiyon se seencha
jeevan ke vriksha ko
par bahaar fir bhi na aayi!

When nothing worked, i tried to irrigate the tree of life, with pearls from my eyes; yet spring never came

Whose Mumbai is it anyways?

Well I would like to strongly protest against divisive politicians like against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray.
Last week, on several fora, Raj Thackeray lashed out at the north Indians on different issues, including performing Chhath Puja, a festival especially popular in Bihar. He demanded that they must celebrate only Maharashtrian festivals.
The MNS chief's controversial remarks on people from north India had led to clashes in several parts of Maharashtra on Sunday. Media reports showed poor taxi driver and a snack seller being beaten up!

I demand public unconditional apology from Mr Raj Thackeray to people of India.
