GOD and his existence have often been questioned by our so called modern generation living in science age. They believe everything happening around us has a scientific explanation for it. All the references of GOD in ancient literature are considered to be myths and questioned their existence. These same people who believe in science take help of ancient scriptures about GOD coming down to help the local people to support their theory of Aliens visiting our earth. According to these pundits the so called GOD frequenting our planet were Aliens with high technological advancement. So are our GODs really inhabitant of some distant planet? Are GODs Ancient Aliens?

People in India must be thinking what is this Heir hunters and what am I talking about. But people in UK are very much familiar with this term as this is a program shown on BBC every morning. Its all about searching for heirs of people who die without any will and have no one related to him to claim his left over fortune. More than 40 million pounds of wealth is left over without any will every year in UK and there are agencies specialised in searching for the heir of the deceased.Hard to believe??
Recently visited to India for a week and every time I visit Mumbai I can see the ever increasing number of people living in the city. It’s really amazing to experience the rapid change especially if you are away from the city for long time. I make a conscious effort to visit the city at least once in a year; else I will be gasped seeing the rapid changes in the city.

People often keep running behind big things in life and in the journey they usually tend to forget or rather ignore small things that give you a sense of happiness and satisfaction. We all aim for high goals in life and why not? But at the same time we should enjoy the journey.

Life is so unpredictable; at one moment you feel as if you want to live forever and at the other life looks very miserable and intolerable. Is this phenomenon created by God or it’s the wonder of human growth and development?

As usual got up at 7 in morning and was having bath when this thought struck my mind. Is it the God that really help us out of difficult situation or is it the faith in him that does the trick? If you see all the religious preachers, the most important thing they teach is to have a blind faith in HIM and that will bail you out of almost every difficult situation in life. They always teach that whatever happens, happens for your own good and there is definitely something better in future for you. If something bad happens to you or your close ones, the only explanation they have is that God has just kept it to minor tremors rather than a larger earthquake.
Don’t you think that they are just trying to say to be optimistic in life and fills your life with positivity? The more faith you build up in God, the more stronger will be your reaction to any negative thing happening in your life. You will take any big issue that comes your way and will face it whole heartedly. The chances of surviving any disaster in such a frame of mind is more than being a pessimist or a non-believer of God.
So does that mean that those who don’t believe in God wont be able to survive such crisis in life? Not believing in God does not stop you from being a highly optimistic person in life. Many of us either have natural optimistic attitude towards life or we rather build up that attitude towards the course of time. We start believing in ourself and whatever we do. This attitude will only do good to your life without any side effects. People in most of the western developed countries have this attitude towards life, most of the time its cultivated since childhood in schools and at home. They enjoy their life, come what may. Maybe that’s the reason they don’t need religious preachers in life to bail them out of crisis. Very few of them believe in God or are religious.
In India, this attitude towards life doesn’t come naturally. May be that’s the reason there are so many people who choose the path of religious spirituality to build the faith in themselves and positivity in life. Any path you follow, all we try to achieve is being positive towards life and that will solve half of our issues.
Having said all this, I still strongly believe that miracles do happen. In every one of our life, there will be some incident or some achievement that must have occurred which was almost impossible. Getting 100 in physics was not less than a miracle for me after knowing that my first objective question in that exam was definitely wrong. Some things do happen in life which can never be explained and those things happen irrespective of you being positive or negative. Now if that is what is called God’s deed then yes I do believe in God. Even today, if I miss my prayers in morning, my whole day will be some how messed up no matter how much optimistic I try to be. Let me know your views on this
Its been more than six months that I have moved away from Birmingham to High Wycombe. Rather I would say, moved away from my friends to a place where I am all alone and not a single known person. Every morning I get up with great difficulty to go to work. There is not the same enthusiasm that I use to have when I use to go to work in India. Then I spend whole day in office thinking how different it is to work here than in India. In India we had a concept of office friends with whom we use to have tea, lunch and snacks; With whom we use to spend time laughing, talking and gossiping and working was just one part of going to office. But here it all complex and professional. People just work and go home and don’t have time to talk or laugh or even have lunch with their colleagues.
After long tiring day in office, I come home and again spend the rest of the hours sitting in front of that stupid laptop and just browsing through news and Orkut profiles. That makes me more lazy and then the whole idea of cooking food for one hour just kills me. And finally I end up eating ready made “Shana” food with bread. And in between this daily routine whenever you meet any of your friends either in office or somewhere else, you just talk about how bored we are in this country and ponder over whether we took the right decision by coming to this country.
This is really a sad and boring life, is it not? But who is responsible for this life? I think I have to blame myself for this kind of life. What you do in your everyday existence, is projected outwardly, and that constitutes the world. If we are miserable, confused, chaotic within, by projection that becomes the world, that becomes society. I myself have created a gloomy world around me and I keep cribbing living inside it all the time. I always forget that there is more to life and there is a different world outside this melancholy world. What You Are, the World Is.
The transformation of the world is brought about by the transformation of oneself. To see the change in the world you need to bring the change in yourself. Unless you change yourself, the world will remain the same obscured place to live in. If you are optimistic towards life and keep enjoying whatever comes in its way then people will come close to you, they will like your company and will spend more time with you. No one in this world will love to stay with a depressed, insecure person all his life. Now that I know where I am going wrong, my next step should be to bring a Change in my life. So i better go and cook now even if it is 9.30pm here. This will be my first step towards the change in my life.
It was 5 in the morning and everyone went to their room after celebrating Kapil’s birthday. I had as usual traveled from Stokenchurch to Birmingham to be with my friends. We had a real blast with some very close friends around and were tired after 5 long hours of drinking, laughing and some emotional talks. After everyone left it was just Kapil and me talking and laughing even at 5 in the morning (tumhara koi beta hai??? Shhhhh aaj se main tumhara beta hun.. ha ha ha. That was the joke of the century). The day seemed to be very short and I really wished it lasted long. I had never laughed so much in last five – six months. It made me really think that how important friends are in your life.
I don’t express any emotions especially when it comes to male friends. I keep it to myself but I would really like to dedicate this blog to my friends Kapil, Pawan, Umang, Honey, Manik and Ankit. It was only because of them, I could stay away from my family and still be happy. They have been with me all the time when I needed them the most. I still remember how I use to crib all the time in last 6 – 7 months and they use to listen to me without complaining. And they did all this specially when they were going through hard times. I am really lucky to have friends like them.
Thanks guys for being with me and supporting me in every phase of my life. We all really rock together and I bet that if we write a book or make a movie on our stay in UK, it will be the best seller of all time.
