The Ant and Grasshopper story -(An indian context then and now)

It’s an old e mail that someone had forwarded me. Of late I have feeling despair. So much that I ended up writing a few lines about being in despair. Looks like it’s a part of a deeper cleansing process due to 2 attunements in teramai reiki and seichem teacher ship. May be sometime later I may post the poem too, however this story really gives us some food for thought.

Ant & Grasshopper

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.
Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

Modern Version
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and
laying up supplies for the winter.
The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.

Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.

Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticizes the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance).

Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bharat Bandh' in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.

CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers.

Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.

Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter.

Arjun Singh makes ' Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services.

The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive
taxes; its home is confiscated by the Government and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.

Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice '.
Lalu calls it ' Socialistic Justice '.
CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden '
Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.

Many years later...

The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon

100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India ...
As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the Grasshoppers, India is still a developing country.

Karmic Blocks and their location in the body and mantra to remove the karma.

Ok people. My last video posts may be boring, but these are really interesting. The speaker in the video is an Indian guru Dattatreya Shiv Baba who apparently is said to be guru of Dr.Wayne Dyer (Author of fantastic books like "your erroneous Zones" and "manifest your destiny")

And this is the second part. Karma is localized in the throat area, Datta teaches the meditation with the Mantra "Thiru Neela Kantum" to dissolve karma that Blocks the Manifestation

2012-From an Astrological View

In my last post i embedded a video about the metaphysics and the NEW AGE. This one tells or rather tries to prove the theory of 2012 as coming of the golden age from the astrological point of view. Not that i understood much of it...rather i hardly understand any astrologer for that matter..Who keep telling us about THIS planet IN THAT Planets house...I am like HUH..Planets have houses...one being ascendant and another going retrograde. Recently one of my friends wrote on the "Mars Retrograde" so i decided to look up as to what the hell Retrograde means ,I mean how can i understand the post if i don’t know the meaning of the title itself .but it was futile .As it turned out retrograde meant planet going in a reverse direction. Indian's call it as VAKRI...I was like WHAT how can suddenly some planet travel backwards..Then it was clarified that it Appears going back when actually moving forward..Hum some crazy optical illusion due the REALTIVE movements of planets..[I do enjoy inserting theory of relativity into something or the other, makes me feel some kind of high and special] however this too was short lived as the guy i was talking about this [Big M i call him, those who have met him will know why] told me it Mathematically appears that they are going in opposite direction. That left me in even more LURCH..MATHEMATICALY...well must be some concept like minus omega..yeah it took me long time to digest about the Negative sign of the angular frequency [frequency is reciprocal of time...but how can time be negative..and if time can’t be negative ..How can frequency be negative]
OK OK ..That’s my left brain over working. So before someone just closes this blog i better give this video. Hope you like it and gives you some HOPE..

Iam feeling being looted. I have recently been filling my exam forms and the fees are completly drastic. From what we used to pay in good old days , mere 300 to 500 bucks, the exam fees is like 1045 rs . Thats a whooping increase.And if you are late its a BIG sin to be. Then your fees can go up to as high as 5000 bucks. and if its for both the semesters it can be 10K almost the entire amount of money in a payment. Its majorly so for engineering. seriously its a loot.
And even if the fees are such one can'nt be bloody sure that one will get proper justice. Having myself suffered this twice i can tell you it sucks. The RTMNU seriously needs to look in its working. Afterall if there are communities like "Brave surviours of nagpur university" should tell these people someting.
