You will always be beautiful, In my eyes ...

No matter what you do, no matter who you are or in what walk of life you are, know that you are loved, beyond infinity. You really do not have to be a star or a celebrity. Whatever may be your definition of success and whether you reach it or not, please be sure of one thing – you are a special person – a limited edition. There is nobody in the Universe like you. You deserve all the happiness in the world – and be sure that you can count on that graceful Lord who is by your side, always.

Maybe life has been a rough ride. Maybe you have qualms about things or people or events. Just trust in your Self and maybe this time, things will turn out just the way you planned. Learn to persevere. Sometimes life hits you like a 40-ton brick. And all you want is mama’s arms. But behind every adversity is opportunity. Actually, there are no adversities. It’s all opportunities, which the good Lord keeps sending our way.

Round and round it goes – know that there is a divine plan behind this all. Trust in Jesus, Allah, Krishna or whoever you pray to. Make sure that you pray. His/Her ways are magnificent. We cannot try to figure it out. Maybe the dots do not connect now – but believe that, it will, someday in the future. So, hang in there. Go drink a lemonade from the lemons that life has given you, although you like apples. You will be drinking apple juice one day. Very Soon. (Just wait for a while).

Thank God for what you have been given. Don’t look at what you don’t have. There is no end to that. All material things are subject to change. Do not define your happiness by material things. For example, that car that you just bought may become mediocre after 1 month of use. This kind of happiness is temporary. Base your happiness on the Lord. Because amidst this changing world, He/She never changes and neither does His/Her love.

So let me a see a smile on your face because you will always be beautiful in my eyes. (says the Lord)

Thanks : Joshua Kadison / Steve Jobs

Its the data, not the program

Computing is simply about 2 things :
  • Data

  • Program

Which came first ? Of course, the data. What do we mean by data ? Well, data is something that is pure, untouched, virgin, pristine or simply not processed. For example milk that we get from a cow is data. When this milk is converted into yogurt or clarified butter or cheese, then it becomes information, which is another word for processed data.

Data in its raw state is like mother nature. As long as we see things objectively, we are witnessing the true side of things. We really don’t need a program to see nature, as it is. This viewing without any affliction’s is called Chitta (a part of our mind). Not many of us see with the Chitta of our mind.
Instead, most of us view nature subjectively through our values, beliefs, ideas, opinions etc. Hence what we see may appear colored, whereas it’s not. This is what happens when we use a program. It converts the meaning of pure data into a higher abstraction called information. This further becomes knowledge (actionable information) and Intelligence (patterns). Finally this intelligence is converted into wisdom through our experience. Wisdom is nothing but the discrimination between good and bad. If the wisdom that we acquire by processing data is good, well then the purpose of the data is served. However, if we stop at knowledge or intelligence, then the interpretation of that data is left to the observer. Every single one of us has a subjective universe, existing in our mind. We spin dreams and stories upon stories to protect what we think is right. If you look at nature, it doesn’t have any contradictions. We do. Because we see things through our lens.
Now what does this have to do with computing ? Well our brain is the algorithm that acts on data collected by our five senses (limited) and interprets it to arrive at some conclusion. A program is simply a set of instructions which operates on data. (or should I say a version of the data). In order for the program to do a good job, it must have the right data. If there are 10,000 data points in a problem, all of them should be available to the program. Sampling or extrapolating won’t be as useful as ‘N’ or all data points. Now you see why MDM (Master Data Management) is so crucial.
GIGO – Garbage In Garbage Out.
With the advent of Big Data, the data from various sources are being crunched to give a unified view of the situation. However, note that too many data sources may worsen the output. Only use as many datasets, as is required.The days when the data used to go where the program is located is becoming extinct. Now the program goes to data. (Hadoop)
The algorithm is getting complex. But even the smartest AI algorithm that we have today pales in comparison to what a single human cell does in a second (3 trillion operations)
Miles to go  before we sleep … (Robert Frost)
The moon is shining in the sky, whether we look up or not.
In a similar way, unbiased or unadulterated data is out there ,for our contemplation, We don’t need a program to realize that (Stillness of the mind).
To end this, I quote the Bible ‘Be Still, And know that I’m God’

Do you have compassion

Everyone does. Compassion stems from deep inside where nobody knows what goes on. The very stream that flows does not know that it will melt into the ocean. If you asked God, what form he is, the most likely reply is, as you think. A buffalo thinks that God is like a buffalo. A cat thinks that God is like a big cat. And so on, Whatever form that you ascribe to God, that form he is. There are religions where God does not have a form. But it's very difficult for us to subscribe to this thought, as we associate everything with a Form. So take out that compassion from the deep recesses of your heart and unleash it on the world. Only good will come out of it,

You know like a train headed for nowhere, we are without a destination. Without knowing where we are going, it's very difficult to chart a course. But rest assured, everything is taken care of. Whether you walk on the path or not, the path is there for you awaiting. In the Bhagvad Gita, God is also referred to as Kaal, or Time. I have come as Time, the destroyer of the worlds. Whether you participate or not, these men are all going to be slain by me. Thus says Krishna, revealing his utmost nature to Arjuna.

Nobody has the slightest clue as to how God is like. If you believe that he is in the air, so be it. If you perceive him in water, so be it. This whole world is a prayer and we are all actors in the bosom of God. We cannot live like Super heroes or Avatars, but we can certainly make an attempt to hear them out and chose to walk the golden path.

That's what I have for you today.

To your success ...

To the most gracious and the most merciful

Never care for what they do
Never care for things they say
Never dare for they are mad

Something like this is the old Metallica song. Do what you feel is right, not what you think is right. Today is 21st Feb 2016 and the number 3 (2+1) is ruled by Jupiter or Brihaspati or Lord Vishnu. Pray with your full heart. Cry, dance, scream. Do whatever it takes to invoke the higher self. You are not alone. This is his promise : I’ll not only protect you, but your shadow also. Such guarantees don’t come easily.

G say nikla Gandhiji
Gandhiji ne khaya Peru
Peru se nikla Neru

(Old Nursery song)

So breach yourself only if you feel like. Write a poem, a blog or a handbook diary. Never say never. Remember, Napolean said, Impossible is a word in the dictionary of fools.

Foolish like you and me. Spurt out or chew out all that useless things you call knowledge and walk on the righteous path of those who have realized the true way (Tao) The earth is modelled after Heaven and the Heaven is made from God, the living spirit. Remember also that they are indispensable and intricately woven ? Would your father back out of a good deal ? Do not make deals with God. Just enjoy the ride and you will reach not one , two but many goals.

To the most gracious and the most merciful …

And the mountains echoed in Love

It's an inspirational Saturday today. Reminds me of Khaled Hosseini, who has written many books. Today I write about Love - the most fundamental aspect of this universe. You see love molecules everywhere, calling you, towards something more than yourself. Your job, your duty is all on line. But what really matters is you - whether you are sound enough to take up the job. So don't be so hard on yourself. Take a break if you must, but don't you quit. You are going to make it. You know why ? Because love overrules everything. And all these things that make you unhappy can only be driven away by the thing called Love. There is a lot of it going around. And what you give comes back to you. That is Law of Attraction.

Love, Love me do. You know I love you. I'll always be true. So please, please, please. Love Me do. It's not my line, but the Beatles singing away the glory of Love in less than 5 minutes. And in the time that it takes you to read this quip that I have, you would have sent across Love molecules in the magnitude of a 9 richter scale Earthquake. You would also have received that much. So why don't you feel it ? Well ask yourself ? Are you all right ? Do you want to feel love now ? Close your eyes in a quiet place. And feel the power of the Universe, permeate you - all through your body, mind and soul. Did you feel it ? Try again and you will have no other option than to feel it.

And the mountains will echo in Love ...
The trees will dance forever
The waters will wash you feet.

The tune is La La La La.

Short for God.

Yours Friendly,

What is not yours is actually yours

What you hold dear to you, close to your heart is yours. But it belongs to everyone. We have to relentlessly give. In giving you receive. Remember, this what Jesus, Mohammed, Krishna and all the spiritual beings say. Death is not a full stop. Simply a comma. In this wheel of life, you give and you take. And life goes on. The LionKing signature song says :

"You should never take more than you give"

That's the circle of life. Parts or Whole. All are made for you. You have to work hard (smart). If you think that you need a shrink, so be it. Go for it. To safely give, you have to

  1. Change your attitude
  2. Know that the universe is abundant
  3. Unlike Stock Markets, it's not a zero sum game
  4. Win / Win
  5. Love your neighbour
  6. Thou shall not tempt the Lord
  7. The Lord is all gracious and merciful

Yet to be done - There are lots of things. But do not hanker after the fruits. You have a right to work, however. All said, trust in God, but bring your own data to the table. Please verify.

Thanks and May God Bless You.


We end where we started

We may think that we are going ahead in life in a linear way, but all progress is coming back to the original being. That means childhood. We start as young infants and then grow up to be an old person. This journey is not really progress, but returning back to the original. Like that Enigma song, Love - Emotion - Don't be afraid to be free - Don't be afraid to be strong - Just look into your heart, my friend - That will be the return to yourself - the return to innocence. In case you are thinking, is that really true - ask yourself- in this moment - what do you feel like ? An adult or a child. The answer is in God's eyes you are a child - an eternal child. Without any limits, You are pure love and nothing less. You are the gift of God.

Could go on and on but here are a few things to remember :

  • You are a child
  • An eternal beautiful child
  • An adult who is in a Child's body
  • An old man in a Adults body
  • You are living in a real world
  • Which is not an illusion

And finally,

It doesn't get better than this.

With all my heart ...


The meaning of meaning

As it so happens very often, that you are misunderstood for what you have said. Note that for any communication, there are 2 people involved viz. the sender and the receiver. If you are the sender, you have to make your message as simple as possible so that the other party gets what you are saying. While if you are the receiver you have to reflect upon the message, till it becomes crystal clear to you. Use reflection i.e repeat the message to the sender (your own version) and see if he/she agrees to it. This is the science of messaging. A one way channel does not work. Communication is many sided and hence a group has to be involved. But the more the people in the group, the more the chances that the meaning won’t be conveyed. So you risk that but at the same time help spreading the message to many people.

The meaning behind any message is the intention it conveys. For example, say you said ‘HTML5 is portable’ There are 2 parts to this : HTML5 and portability. Your receiver should clearly know that HTML5 is a programming language or a standard being used prevalently on the Web. The more he/she knows about it, the more meaning can be ascribed to the message. The second part is portability – mind you, it’s not to be confused with potability – which is how much a liquid or say water is drinkable.Portability on the other hand means the ability for the language to work on different platforms – be it Windows, Linux or Android. Thus HTML5 is portable, simply means that, here is a language for you that can be made to work seamlessly on many platforms. See how the message meaning becomes clear now.

Thus meaning is what is behind it, what is inside it or what is deep down the sender’s intention.

So don’t mistake water for a liquid or say that all liquid is water. The meaning of water is only found out when you taste it.

Tasteless, right.

And so the messages keep on a comin’

  1. Honesty is of paramount importance
  2. Ethics is still more important
  3. You should become what you preach
  4. It’s not the journey, it’s how you stay at the top once you reach the pinnacle
  5. You are wedded to what you do
  6. Duty comes before anything else
  7. Make way for humanity
  8. Change your attitude, if you want to change yourself
  9. Commitment is important , what’s more important is the intention
  10. Who are we to forgive, when God has forgiven him/her

Time why you punish me

What seems as time is relative. Time slows down and runs fast when you focus on work. Time, why you punish me – goes Hootie and the blowfish. Time is Saturn. The destroyer of the foes and friends. If you can understand the me, then I can understand the you. (Metallica) This reversed is true. Time does not wait for anyone. At the cost of anyone or anything, it’s worth waiting for you. Parents, Teachers, Citizens – all will be consumed by Time. If you consume say 2 bottles of whiskey or a pint of beer, which is more harmful ? The whiskey of course. If you wish that others are not going to mind you, have perseverance. You should know how to act, not just intention. Everyday is a pain if you live wrong. A life right lived is an invitation to God – Or time – Or Shiva. No use reading vedanta if you are a monster.

Do not use people. I’m feeling like I’m going to break down. Everytime you repeat that same old mistake. Your kids will grow up, you will move on. You need a backbone, not just talks. Work is silence and that is the innermost truth. Corelations are above causality.  You may go public. But only if you hit it right are you going to survive. Thrive. What a stink, if you don’t achieve what you intend to do. You may live in the condo, but dream big. You should know how to mask your wrong decisions. Apologize if you are wrong. You will emerge a stronger man. There is no harm in admitting that your were not right.Have you seen God ? This life is not to be withered away. It has to be lived rightly. Numbers do not mean all. They may influence you, but believe in your will power. It will take you a long way.
