The Bangladesh Eye Flu

“The Bangladesh Eye Flu” (Sarbjit Singh) It was probably sometime in 1971 when I was around 12 years old that there was a very widespread epidemic of eye flu christened Bangladesh Eye flu. It was probably named so because this was brought in by the huge influx of Bangladeshi refugees into India around the time […] More

Wisdom and Happiness

Wisdom and Happiness Socrates said that “Wisdom is the key to happiness”. What do you think wisdom is? Where does it come from? What ever we learn in school, college or from teachers is not wisdom. That probably is knowledge. Everyday, on social media, we post a lot of good quotes of some great and […] More

मैं और मेरे दो दोस्त (सरबजीत)

मैं और मेरे दो दोस्त
(सरबजीत)

मेरे दो दोस्त हैं
एक ख़ुशी और
दूसरा है गम

दोनों से मेरी अक्सर
बातें होती हैं
होती हैं मगर
साथ साथ कभी नहीं
जब एक साथ होता है
न जाने दूसरा
खो जाता है कहीं  (more…)

The Imperfect Gandhi

M.K.GandhiThe Imperfect Gandhi
(Sarbjit Singh)

No one is perfect. Our flaws make us human. Flaws of others should not decrease our appreciation of their qualities that we admire. Like everyone else M.K.Gandhi had a number of flaws too which he himself penned down. One of the infamous ones he was ashamed of was the fact that while his father was dying, he was making love to his wife in the next room. He was human. I still admire his courage,his compassion,his grit, his tolerence & his inability to say anything but the truth.

Go Free Yourself….

Sarbjit SinghGo Free Yourself …
(Sarbjit Singh)

The only time in life we are completely free is when we are born.As we grow older, the rules and regulations, dos and don’ts, moral and social bindings, laws to follow etc keep on increasing. I wonder what “Free Society” actually means. Society is the one which puts us in shackles and enslaves us. Some people say that it is all to protect the weak and the poor. I think the weak and poor have nothing to lose.These rules and laws are to protect the rich and powerful(?). Those who try to free their souls are most times stifled in one way or the other.That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive for inner freedom…

As long as you don’t infringe upon similar rights of others,

go free yourself….

A woman repeated a bit of gossip about a neighbor. Within a few days the whole community knew the story. The person it concerned was deeply hurt and offended. Later, the woman responsible for spreading the rumor learned that it was completely untrue. She was very sorry and went to a wise old sage to find out what she could do to repair the damage.

“Go to the marketplace,” he said, “and purchase a chicken, (more…)

“Chugalkhors or The Gossipers”
(Sarbjit Singh)

There is no doubt almost everyone sometime or the other in their life has participated in some kind of gossip and enjoyed it. The only time someone doesn’t enjoy gossip is when it is about her or him.

There are very few people who outrightly reject participating in gossip. As I remember, my late mother was one of them and as far as can remember, she would not allow gossip in front of her at all.There were however, some other members in the extended family who would indulge in, ‘enjoy’ and practiced this very prevalent fine ‘art’. They even gossiped about my mother behind her back. Such people never realise that they, inadvertently might be passing this ‘art’ to young impressionable (more…)
