Beyond Reason – Beyond Emotion – Beyond Religion –  Brother-hood Bonding – Oneness – Binding of Human Values

Hai Readers,

We have seen multiple news and insights on the recent inauguration of the World’s first Statue of Equality. Just sparked a thought to put some interesting information on the same for you.

Where do I start for you to be more interesting?

Ok. Let me start with; a question to understand why is it required?

There are 4 strong reasons for the Equality Statue to be installed at this time when India Alias Bharath is identified as below;

  • Equality across Castes
  • Equality across Social Status
  • Equality across Gender
  • Equality across Religions

Great, now let us try to know more…

  • Mounted on a base-building named “Bhadravedi”, 54 feet (16 m) tall and three-stories high
  • Meditation Hall at the base where a small statue of “Ramanuja” made of 120 kg of GOLD that represents the years he lived for daily worship
  • Statue made of Panchaloha (5 Metals – GOLD, SILVER, ZINC, COPPER and BRONZE) 
  • 6,000 square metres on the ground floor depicts the life of Ramanujar and philosophy
  • The investment cost on the project is about Rs. 1000 crores of which Rs. 135 crores is  for the statue that is dedicated to the fellow people of the world
  • Project completed in 15 months duration, casting work from China, statue bought in 1600 pieces.
  • The 27,870 square metre temple on the second floor
  • The 1,365 square metre on the third floor, includes a Vedic digital library and research centre

All these things are fine, and yet another question surface is why Ramanujar?

Kutty Story | One-For-All & All-For-One

A man, who regularly attended meetings with his friends, suddenly without any notice stopped participating.

After a few weeks, one very cold night the leader of that group decided to visit him.

He found the man at home, alone, sitting in front of a fireplace where a bright and cosy fire burned. The man welcomed the leader. There was a great silence.

The two men only watched the dancing flames around the logs that crackled in the fireplace.

After a few minutes the leader, without saying a word, examined the embers that formed and selected one of them, glowing most brightly of all, removing it to the side with a pair of tongs. Then he sat down again.

The host was paying attention to everything, fascinated. Before long, the lone ember flame subsided, until there was only a momentary glow & the fire soon went out.

In a short time what was previously bright light and heat had become nothing more than a black & dead piece of coal.

Very few words had been spoken since the greeting.

Before preparing to leave, the leader with the tongs picked up the useless coal & placed it again in the middle of the fire. Immediately, the ember was rekindled, fueled by the light & heat of the burning coals around him.

When the leader reached the door to leave, the host said: Thank you for your visit and for your beautiful lesson. I’ll return to the group soon.

Why is the group extinguished…..?

Very simple:
Because each member that withdraws takes fire & heat from the rest.

It’s worth reminding group members that they are a part of the flame.

It’s also good to remind us that we are all responsible for keeping each other’s flame burning & we must promote the unity among us so that the fire is really strong, effective and lasting.

THE GROUP IS ALSO A FAMILY

It doesn’t matter if sometimes we are bothered by so many messages that reach the chat. What matters is to be connected. We are here to meet, learn, exchange ideas or simply to know that we are not alone.

Let’s keep the flame alive.

THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR FIRE

Life is beautiful with friends… one for all and all for one.
Just be Happy

Kutty Story | Nightmare or Oblivion

We always do dream of our Life, Work, Love, Vacation, Success and What Not those are Awaited or Aspired about Our Future, But Life Never Seems to be the Same at Some Point When We are Struck with a Nightmare that can change the Way We look from the Point of our Oblivion. Every Thing Around us is a Chaos and our Past Experience and Efforts are Nullified. And Now is the Breaking Point that We Need to Actually Think of Not Quitting But Still be THERE (Position) in the Race of Life be THERE (Finish) in the Destiny of Life. Ultimately We Are Here To Sound Out Louder Than Before That Faith & Belief to Win Over Destiny.

Kutty Story | Election Days Gossip

Curated Image

I recall a day sometime back once I was having a conversation with a couple of localities a few days prior to the election when the campaign was at its peak. The talk was more intense on the vote bank and money laundering.

One of the person started to narrate an incident shared by someone from a nearby village in which the party person (Political Party Representative) was trying to convince the fellow villager (Daily Wager kind off) for an X amount (Say Rs. 1000 per Vote) per voter in a household which has around 4 members.

While the fellow villager insisted the party person buy a donkey or two instead of money of a person, surprised by the intention the party person asked the fellow villager “What’s that you are planning to do with the donkey?“. The fellow villager replied that “I shall graze that in the open lands & sell its milk for a living“. Agreeing to the urge by the fellow villager the party person left the place to enquire about the feasibility of the deal.

After a couple of days, the party person returned to the fellow villager and yelled in despair “Boss a single donkey cost more than 15k and even accounting to your entire household members vote bank on money terms, it’s not possible“. He also added that “a donkey yields 1-1.5 litres per day & it’s sold at Rs.500 per 100 ml of milk.

On hearing this the fellow villager replied: “Why is it that we voters are valued less while a donkey costs more than what a voter is valued for, however in both the cases Donkey & Voter are slaves “.

The party person understood that he had been thought a lesson for his act of exploiting people & left the place with anger.

The entire members along with me who had gathered nearby to hear this narrative story burst into laughter.
