Happy Women’s day!

8 Mar

 

Happy Women’s day dear friends!

Like this  Sia song every girl child at birth may be made to believe ” I’m unstoppable, I’m invincible, I’m so confident….”

There is no difference between a man and a woman. None whatsoever apart from physiological differences. Sky is the limit for a girl child. She can be whatever she chooses to be. I know in many parts of the world this is a struggle.

Life is not beautiful without women – sister’s, friends, partner’s, mother’s, aunts, every one…

Good night dear friends!  Happy women’s day!

Love, Suresh

Something – George Harrison & Eric Clapton

19 Apr

I am listening to this song…

Something : George Harrison

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You’re asking me will my love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around and it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

I love George Harrison. I hope you like this song dear friends. We all fall in love and me too and there is something about a person….a smile, the way they move, in their being , kindness…something.
This dedicate to all people whom love and they inspire me, they locate in a corner of mind and illumine something my master taught me..
Something about them…
Have a good day dear friends!
Love, Suresh

Take This Longing – Leonard Cohen

30 Mar

I met him now and couldn’t recognise. He told me to have one more look and then recognised. He asked about me. I spoke the usual.  We said Good bye and he stopped after going some distance and looked  back  and said ” God Bless you”. I waved at him happily..

It reminded me of a girl all of twenty two in my earlier Job, who after leaving my room, came back and stood at the door and said ” We may not meet again but my best wishes are always with you.” I had waved at her happily..

I have a few such treasures which make life liveable..

For my friend, here is a song, Take this longing..

Take This Longing – Leonard Cohen

Many men have loved the bells
you fastened to the rein,
and everyone who wanted you
they found what they will always want again.
Your beauty lost to you yourself
just as it was lost to them.

Oh take this longing from my tongue,
whatever useless things these hands have done.
Let me see your beauty broken down
like you would do for one you love.

Your body like a searchlight
my poverty revealed,
I would like to try your charity
until you cry, “Now you must try my greed.”
And everything depends upon
how near you sleep to me

Just take this longing from my tongue
all the lonely things my hands have done.
Let me see your beauty broken down
like you would do for one you love.

Hungry as an archway
through which the troops have passed,
I stand in ruins behind you,
with your winter clothes, your broken sandal straps.
I love to see you naked over there
especially from the back.

Oh take this longing from my tongue,
all the useless things my hands have done,
untie for me your hired blue gown,
like you would do for one that you love.

You’re faithful to the better man,
I’m afraid that he left.
So let me judge your love affair
in this very room where I have sentenced
mine to death.
I’ll even wear these old laurel leaves
that he’s shaken from his head.

Just take this longing from my tongue,
all the useless things my hands have done,
let me see your beauty broken down,
like you would do for one you love.

Like you would do for one you love

Goodnight dear friends! So take this longing from my tongue….

I will live for little treasures..

Roger Waters – Brain Damage

10 Mar

Iam listening to this song today..

Brain Damage – Pink Floyd

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in the hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon
The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ’till I’m sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon
This for today and hope you like this fine version by the great Roger Waters.
Good night dear friends!
Love, Suresh

Eagles : Tequilla Sunrise

28 Jan

It’s been a mixed day, registered my first house with mother, also life stared at me with all that has been through, so listen to this song for the day…

“Tequila Sunrise”

It’s another tequila sunrise
Starin’ slowly ‘cross the sky, said goodbye
He was just a hired hand
Workin’ on the dreams he planned to try
The days go byEv’ry night when the sun goes down
Just another lonely boy in town
And she’s out runnin’ ’round

She wasn’t just another woman
And I couldn’t keep from comin’ on
It’s been so long
Oh, and it’s a hollow feelin’ when
It comes down to dealin’ friends
It never ends

Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It’s another tequila sunrise,this old world
still looks the same,
Another frame, mm…

You who never lacked courage, for its all you had, struggle for right word..
You who never wanted to be any one else but yourself, shy but unafraid..
I need to get the courage back, you know love kills you sometimes..
May be tomorrow will be another day…
I have a message though to all students ” Education is the only thing in your control and your excellence is only in your hands” everything else like every other thing may be a roll of dice..
Kids study!!!
Okay, me too will have a house  ( under construction), though seem to only like wooden table, large wooden table, wooden chairs, book shelf and someone to love…
Hope you like the song and will miss you Glenn Frey!
Goodnight friends!
Love, Suresh

Passenger – The Long Road

4 Jan

I am listening to this today..

The Long Road – Passenger

We’ve walked the long road and you’ve worn it well.
You stitched yourself up when you fell.
Keep your memories in jars,
Carry secrets in scars
Beneath your shell.

You’ve seen some good days, and some bad ones too.
You weave through fashion and trend.
You’ve seen a sun rise on an ocean blue,
You’ve seen it set for the dearest of friends

You found faith but you, chose to doubt it.
You found love but you, left without it.
And now you don’t want, to talk about it.

You travelled down through foreign lands,
Touched mountain tops and golden sand,
Seen pyramids and temples made of stone.
Keep seashells in a cashmere scarf,
A treasured book of photographs
In every single one you stand alone.

You’ve seen Vienna and the Berlin wall,
As you watched the decades fall
The letters that you wrote never made it home.
Your birthdays flew past like June,
With Christmas days in hotel rooms
And new years eve with people you don’t know.

You built friendships but they, sailed without you.
You never meant it and that’s why, they doubt you.
They don’t ever talk about you.

You’re older than you used to be,
The mirror weaves a tapestry
Of lines that dance and shimmer ’round your eyes.
You stare back at a man, forever holding out his hand
As if the answer’s going to fall out of the sky.

But the penny never dropped,
And no man has ever stopped time flying by.

From one passenger to other – Do answer’s drop from the sky 🙂
Goodnight Friends! Hope you have a good day!
Love, Suresh

Robert Waldinger :What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness ( TED talk)

27 Dec

This is a great talk. I came across this talk in LinkedIn shared by  Jeff Weiner. Linkedin has a terrific CEO  and has great ideas. That’s a different post.

Robert Waldinger, Director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, in this TED talk shares a most important research from a longitudinal study of 75 years of  involving 724 men that the most important things are not money or fame but ” Relationships. Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period.” This is so true. More from the talk :

We’ve learned three big lessons about relationships. The first is that social connections are really good for us, and that loneliness kills. It turns out that people who are more socially connected to family, to friends, to community, are happier, they’re physically healthier, and they live longer than people who are less well connected.

And we know that you can be lonely in a crowd and you can be lonely in a marriage, so the second big lesson that we learned is that it’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship, but it’s the quality of your close relationships that matters. It turns out that living in the midst of conflict is really bad for our health. High-conflict marriages, for example, without much affection, turn out to be very bad for our health, perhaps worse than getting divorced. And living in the midst of good, warm relationships is protective.”

And the third big lesson that we learned about relationships and our health is that good relationships don’t just protect our bodies, they protect our brains. It turns out that being in a securely attached relationship to another person in your 80s is protective, that the people who are in relationships where they really feel they can count on the other person in times of need, those people’s memories stay sharper longer. And the people in relationships where they feel they really can’t count on the other one, those are the people who experience earlier memory decline. And those good relationships, they don’t have to be smooth all the time. Some of our octogenarian couples could bicker with each other day in and day out, but as long as they felt that they could really count on the other when the going got tough, those arguments didn’t take a toll on their memories. “

For more : http://www.ted.com/talks/robert_waldinger_what_makes_a_good_life_lessons_from_the_longest_study_on_happiness/transcript?language=en

Every one want’s peace, love and happiness. Relationships are our greatest source of happiness and also our misery. It’s not easy. I have often felt ” I have no problems with others, my challenges have only come from myself.” I also like to think increasingly ” If only if we dont come in our way. we can have good lives.” Iam work in progress. I also feel self pity and resentment should be removed from our system. We may or may not get all the love and affection we need . But we can always love unconditionally. That is my current conviction and practice.  I wish for every one a person who loves  and cares for them ” Just for what they are and the way they are.”

I saw a message from Indian mystic Sadhguru ” As the year ends atleast make one promise. You will not be a issue in your life. ” I think it’s a good message.

Robert Waldinger has a great message ” Focus on good quality relationships.” I hope it works for all of us. Atleast we should try and give it a shot…

Have a easy Sunday!

Love, Suresh
