Messi is not alone

Last week, Lionel Messi declared his retirement, post the defeat of Argentina in the centenary Copa America final against Chile.

But why? He is only 29 years old and have at least 7-10 years to try his level best to win a trophy for the country. He won FIFA best player award for five times, he was awarded golden ball last word cup, and he own several significant trophies for his club Barcelona. But it is also true he had lost four consecutive major finals and failed to earn a big trophy under his bucket for the country. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest player of this world since football was incepted. However, he was always under the comparison with Christiano Ronaldo of recent times and Pele, Maradona from older decades. Compared to Pele, Maradona, playing football has become more complicated now as players are being analyzed in computers and counter actions are tactically pre-defined where the puppets have to deliver the same like robots in the ground. There are press, news agencies, internet, social media are trying to de-mystify and share judgments of a footballer (who is unfortunately a human being as well).

Overall eco system builds the enormous pressure and sets high expectations on a performer which not only impacts his/her performance, but also disturbs the mental stability.  It was clearly visible in the final that even his strong points (like free kick etc) were not going well as he had reflected his skills on those segments in the group league matches. And finally he broke to the enormous pressure and missed the first shot in penalty shootout. This was the time entire think tank, co-players to work together to release pressure on him. But it happened reverse. The team, who played so well in the group league without him (as in initial matches he was not playing full due to injury), started depending on him as if he himself can create magic alone. And the final result is evident to everyone now.

The situations are eminent in every corner of the society. The kids are pressed to perform best in every domain like studies, games, creatives, physical activities. Working people are pressed to earn more money to uplift lifestyle. The performer is pressed to take entire workload and even overcome shortfall of others. These in effect generates anxiety, stress, fear, anger, impatience and off-course health hazards. In effect performance impacts and people breaks down.

Low score in exam enforced kids to take the extreme step of suicide. People behavior patterns got changed. People losing jobs every now and then. Moreover not getting matching job (rather matching six digit salary) to sustain in lifestyle. But the eco system, society, other people will not let you leave peacefully. Comparisons, Criticism, expectations will build enormous pressure on human mind and people are bound to lose their control. The same is visible for poor common man, nation, and celebrity, rather everyone. The situations will direct us towards something which will not only dis balance life, but can spoil the normal free flowing delight of it.

My dear friends, Messi is not alone, we are all party to this cumulative social disaster.

“Oh No, Not Again” ! Is it your reaction thinking one more negative article in my blog? .

Hold on ! Your Patience is being tested for next few minutes.

I have written several sections in previous days on the pain points of an entrepreneur, manpower issues, echo system negativity and so on. And few of my active readers complained about it – stating “I am getting too much bogged down into negativity”.

But point is different, I was never been influenced, induced into negativity even though the overall sorounding echo system is prone towards the same. In terms of spelling out those negative characteristics in different forms (writing blogs/articles, lectures, trainings) was intended to articulate the negatives sothat all of us (including me) may not repeat the mistakes (learning from past experience) and stay tuned towards positive spirits of life. In eighteen years of my career (12 years in employment and 6 years of Entrepreneurship so far), my intention was always to ride the boat against the wave. There were several situations like follows:

  • Something is not happening,
  • some work is getting impacted,
  • customer service is getting suffered, quality is being impacted,
  • performance is being dipped for a group/organization,
  • People are not able to handle it,
  • People are not able to understand positive philosophies of life.

In all those cases, my tendency was to take part into transactions in order to get things done in order to make them understand “how negatives can be converted into positives” (otherwords “leading from the front”). But unfortunately I could not turn a small leave of the tree and instead burdened myself into bandwidth crunch, stress and off course became dissatisfied, irritatated, impatient, short tempered and unhappy.

In retrospection in last few months, I discovered that I was wrong and in effect practicing to restratezige my thoughts.

Before stepping into more deliberation on the same, let me tell you a story (though real one).

Champa is our cook for last one year. She used to cook for us earlier also. She left and joined back in the second innings. Below are few of her beharial approaches:

  • She cannot make “milk tea”,
  • she do not cook chicken/meats
  • She never prepared Pithe, Payes, Beguni and do not know how to cook.
  • She does not eat several fishes and curries. And off course she is reluctant to cook those (or learn).
  • She can neither prepare spices manually due to back pain nor she can not handle mixy (rather she is reluctant to learn it’s handling).
  • She asks every steps (no of spoons of oil, salt, duration of sauté/boiling) and even sometimes pushes my mother/wife to wake up from sleep and taste (she cooks in abnormal time – 3pm to 5pm as her other slots are occupied due to extreme demand).

She conducts all pujas at her home (apart from traditional durgapuja, kalipuja, rashpurnima, manasa puja, kartik puja even) and all pujas she devotes herself to the devine god/godess with fasting. In effect she loves to take leave on those days.

She stays in a 5 mins walking distance from our home, but every possible events (like vote, strike by any political party), she avoids attending work due to fear factor.

Lastly, most importantly, during last durgapuja my in laws (father in law and mother in law) stayed with us for around a month. End of the month she told my mother to contribute some additions to her salary due to 2 additional persons. Her monthly salary INR 2250 ( family members 3 adults and 2 kids).

Thanks for your patience for reading such a long story and it appears to be irrelevant to you.

No. It’s not ! The story reveals overall attitude towards work – let it be a cook or office boy, sales guy, service engineer. The reactions / behavioral attitude of everyone is focused on finding reasons/clauses for “non-doing things”. Same is applicable to taxi drivers, rikswa walla, auto drivers, office employees and even my kids.

Yellow taxies are always having protest against new Services (Ola, uber, taxi for sure etc), but even in busy afternoon they are reluctant to go almost anywhere. At 2pm afternoon 4 yellow taxies refused to ride ultadanga to airport stating ” lunch time”, “Break cord broken” ( তার কাটা) ” Will not go that side” (ওদিকে যাব না). Interestingly got same answers while intented to travel camac street to esplanade same time other day ( people who are familiar with Kolkata geography, may clearly understand the locations are in proper Kolkata only, not outside).My immediate reaction comes in this situation s “Where you will go”?. But now I realized no point wasting temper/energy in those situations.

Situations are having no alterations while dealing subordinates/employees. If there is a sudden need of a customer support for whole night and situation arises in the morning only (I.e emergency, no prior information/preparation), employees will come out will all possible exercises and you will feel yourself in awkward situations (thinking who is employer):

  • Having some personal work tonight, can not do it
  • Why did not intimate me earlier?
  • Why don’t you allocate this to ” X” ( his fellow colleague, though he will have reservations in the same lines or different)
  • Better would be to ask customer to do it day after tomorrow.
  • Why Customer cannot do it in normal working office hours?

Ideal response comes to my mind is “****” (yes “slang”), but I have learnnt now holding my nerve as no point riding the boat against the wave.

There were situations where I tried to make people understand, mould their philosophies to turn into positives, but all went in vain. Neither they followed my principle, nor could deliver results (not interested more precisely).Rather, I know in these situations, people always believe:

  • These thoughts (my imposed thoughts) are impractical, impossible, un realistic
  • Those are wastage of time
  • Something else/some other thoughts / mechanisms should be tried instead of those idealistic philosophies.
  • The thoughts are useless, non sense.
  • Unnecessary speed will spoil the game.

So hold yourself. Why to waste time and energy in serving people who does not deserve it ( উলুবনে মুক্তো ছড়ানো)?

We can not control anyone other than self. The moment self control is utmost, that will reflect positive energies and attract people towards it (pull) instead we forcefully make them understand (push).

Let us store our energy to use it at proper time.

“Live life King Size” : A Biopic

Live life “King Size”.

This statement is very well known and I am not here to suggest audience why/how to do it?

Rather I will here take you through a life story of a person and I presume the self will be self-explanatory how he did it.

It is about my father Late Gautam Kumar Mukherjee. 14th December was his death anniversary. He left us heavenly on 14th December, 2012. He was 67 years old during death. Below are few glimpses in my childhood

7T3002BUebD0TBWDSLeD9XVC 7J9d6MV4T807CdVHfM4F6hhX bKfR6MEaMHXSa16gCFC438b8 2F1rh4KUaBRdtJ4FC5U5PtVX

His life was eventful, blended with fight, turbulence, enthusiasm, excitement and enlightenment.

1FPa4e4NKS4ayLRU23WKF9A2(1) V657S5KXa94P9NU8UCVD38L4

Late Paresh Chandra Mukherjee was originated from Dhaka Vikrampur and he belongs to Murapra Jaminder family. He was a decent business man during his time in Bengal and owned a pitch board box manufacturing plant during 40s. Unfortunately he had a major road accident and met unfortunate demise at the age of 49years only. He left five of children behind (4sons and one daughter) including my father. My father was the third child of my grandparents (one elder brother and one elder sister, two younger brothers). During my grandfather’s death, my father was at class seven and his youngest brother was only four years old. So he caught into difficult situations of life where he had been bound to become tough fighter not by choice, but by force.

But he not only survived, but countered the situation on his favor under the guidance of maternal uncle ( he had to act like a guardian of the family as his elder brother not only ruined the family business, but also escaped from the situation and settled in Mumbai keeping entire family behind).

He got settled himself in career, gradually built house in Birati (my present home where I reside since birth). The land was procured by my grandfather as after Independence, they came from Bangladesh and settled in a rented place in Daksnineswar. With the rise of business, grandfather had plans to construct family house in Birati. But unfortunatel same could not be materialized due to his accidental death.

Gradually elder sister got married, family situation revived and my father led it on his own shoulder.

This was just one side of his characteristics. But he was multi-talented man.

He was a great athlete. In his time own lot of office championship not only in outdoor games (running, long jump, football), but also in indoors (cards, carom etc). In my childhoods all costly crockeries in my house was the prizes own by him during games.

Below are few pictures of his live performance and prizes:

Few of his prizes:

He was fond of traveling. He had covered almost all corners of India including tracking. I heard so many stories of tracking speacily nanda devi, keder-badri etc. This got inherited to me since my childhoods. We visited somany places togetherlike kashir, entire south India, gujrat and Rajasthan, simla-kulu-manal, nainitali , char dham , sundarban , dooars, north-east, bangladesh etc. The trips were long terms (15 – 20 days together) in groups. I had been to the trips completely by bus (Kolkata to Kolkata). 50 people together with cook, helper, food ingredients with us were awesome experience. There had been several overnight travels by bus and we did took breaks in petrol pump at night. Our cooks used to make quick dinner (rice, daal, sabji, egg/chicken) and it was indeed a picnic mood (kids like us used to sing, recite, play mean the time food was ready). Audience might be wondering or may be finding is troublesome, but believe me the kind of joy we had was absolutely not available in our today’s luxurious trips.

Few snaps below as he went for trecking:


Few other travel pictures:


As we went together places:

Everytime we used to comeback, general practise was to take snaps with all children in our locality surrounding our home. Now I can relate, how those small things created better social bonding and retained our sweet memories.


He was foodie and was popular in the community. There were several stories which are still on words in our relatives. There was an incident of a marriage ceremony where he took 163 rassgollas after full course heavy meal (this is not a story).

Every event (marriage, burial, sports, picnic, tour/travel anything and everything) in our locality, friends circle, relatives, he was a default choice to lead, guide, drive. Even today I find people regrets his absence in case of any occasions. “আজ যদি গৌতম বেঁচে থাকতো, তাহলে কি আর আমাদের কোন চিন্তা ছিল?”(We would have been tension free if Gautam was here) was the latest version of thoughts during invitation for the death rituals during father in laws death.

Anyone wanted to plan a trip, his suggestions/guidance was must in our circle. His experience, tips, inputs were most valuable to them (as he visited most of the places) apart from his knowledge/passion for the subject.

He did not have a professional singing training, but he was a good singer. He was an armature performer. Every year he used to organize and perform in Office Drama with his friends. I have several of such performance in Mahajati Sadan. All office colleagues used to join their with family (different ambiance, culture compared to today’s night party with hard drinks, DJ and dance). I had seen him performing in “Raktakarabi” in local club associations.


He has been instrumental in organizing Durgapuja, Kalipuja in his time. He was a hardcore communist and used to be deeply engaged in political activities in 70s.

The organization skills, management abilities, Execution process were truly awesome and would have been automatic choice in any organization project management present needs. Let me give you a small example of my marriage. There were around 50+ relatives were supposed to come and stay for 3 days. Staying arrangements for them were with the surrounding houses besides our home.

Every house was populated with daily ingredients (bucket, mug, soap, shampoo, mosquito coil, oil, bedding). There were delighted people to look after starting from morning tea, breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner. Every possible transactions were drafted, planned, documented and executed with perfection in time with the assistance of my mother.

He was a government worker. But I have never seen him dipped into the so-called work culture. He never missed office (unauthorized leaves) due to any issues (natural calamities, ill health or any other petty issues). He was punctual at office timings and accountable/responsible for his work with his heart (the attitude is missing in today’s private enterprise even).

His life was extremely disciplined, time bound and well planned. His personality was little tough , rigid and straight. People used to be afraid (incuding me) of him due to his angry image, his loud/bold voice.

I still wonder how he could connect different dimensions of life. Our present problems of “bandwidth crunch” seem to be pitty if we compare with him.

The journey from down to top, building / earning “roti, kapra, makaan” by ownself and then touching different spirits of life truly reveals “Living life King size”.

Let his soul rest in peace. Looking forward meeting him in some form in some life.

60 minutes of Turbulence in life


5th December, 2015.

Yes it was my birthday. But it got ruined due to sudden death of my father-in-law. It was Saturday afternoon, he left us behind and approached for heaven.

December is always horror month so far 2012 onwards. In 2012, lost my father in a sudden heart attack. My mother got neuro attack during death Anniversary of my father in 2013. Then she got shoulder dislocation last year (2014).  And now father-in-law expired all of a sudden in 2015.

But irony is both the deaths (my father and father-in-law) took place in such an unexpected manner, entire balance of life got disturbed with the turbulence. And during both the incidents, I was present throughout and best possible medications arranged as per our capability (and availability). But both the situation was beyond control of medical science and we were left only with the prayers to the Supreme Lord.


30th November, 2015 evening he (father-in-law) played with his Grand Daughters and he was completely in peace and joy. But a major cerebral Attack at 9.30pm caused the major damage to his life. His son (my brother in law) was fortunately in station (actually he stays in Hyderabad with family due to his career) for a family marriage occasion, though he was not at home at that particular moment. However all of us rushed to him by 10pm and incidentally he got admitted in a premiere nursing home in emergency. By this time he was completely unconscious. His last words before leaving home was “I am finished, do take care of your mother. Let me go to my mother “( আমি শেষ, মাকে দেখিস, আমি মায়ের কাছে চললাম ). Now after his death, my realization is that people (soul) get indications of his / her life endpoints. Otherwise why my mother-in-law called us (over phone) even before she goes to see her husband on the first floor? (Father-in-law informed her over intercom that he is not feeling well). And also remember last words of father-in-law (as mentioned above).

30th night was sleepless for us in nursing home emergency and it was followed by a neuro operations next day morning. His Criticality kept on becoming severe and the brain got completely disconnected with rest of the organs. Doctors were never optimist and his misery ended to his death on 5th. The brain hemorrhage was so intense (mid of the brain), it was almost impossible to operate (as per doctors). However doctors tried to create a bypass path by creating a channel to flow fluids externally in order to reduce pressure on brain. Unfortunate the back fire happened due to Aspirin as well (the medicine being taken by major patients in old age to avoid clotting of blood). The medicine influences further secretion of blood even after the attack and made the situation towards unavoidable circumstances.

A 60 minutes turbulence not only taken away a life (he was only 72), but did unbalanced associated people. Brother in law and his family (wife and two daughters) were about to return on 2nd December, 2015. They were forced to cancel their ticket and in effect elder daughter missed her exams, junior missed out getting forms for new admission.


Asesh Darsan Chatterjee (father in law) was a great person with very humble and gentle approach. He was very soft, friendly, but expressive character. He loved talking to people with a big smile. Interacting with new people and build good connection was in his fingertips. Almost everyone in my locality knows him as used to talk with everyone. Appreciations to everyone even for a small cause was his great characteristic. He was dead against of being rude / tough on kids. Always he cared of them with gifts of any price. He was very particular about quality. He used to visit defense canteen (being ex-army person) very frequently in order to bring stuffs for grandchildren.

He had been to several places in India during his working tenure starting from Pune to coochbihar. It was a thrilling experience while listening from his mouth about his life experience. He was an enriched soul, having deep inclination towards spirituality. It seems his experience/learning objective in this physical state was accomplished and in effect he left for a different plane/dimension. His life in this state must have accumulated more karmic debt and in effect his next life will be easier and more meaningful.


In a three years window I had experienced two persons’ demise all of a Sudden. Both of the fathers almost took the same path of evacuation from life. My father was admitted in the nursing home in planned manner for monitoring (since he had a major sugar fall last day). He was admitted at 9.30 am. The massive Attack appeared at 9.45am all of a sudden and taken away the life by 10.15am. It was such a rapid Attack, Trop T could not detect the same as well. Same was for father in law this time.

May their souls rest in peace. My prayer to the supreme lord to keep them with the best possible ways and guide us in case any assistance can be extended through our small possible karmic life here.

“Many Lives, Many Masters” and Many Thoughts

The book “Many Lives, Many Masters” I read at the end of December immediately my father left us. This was little casual read as someone referred me in order to achieve peace.

Again after 3 years, I read the book more seriously during last Puja vacation and this time I thought of summarizing my read and learning.

“Many Lives, Many Masters” is written by Dr.Brian Weiss and published by Piatkus. Dr.Brian Weiss is a psychiatrist who lives and practices in Miami, Florida. His life got changed during the therapic sessions with his patient “Catherine”.

Catherine was suffering from nightmares and chronic anxiety attacks. Initial sessions during her eighteen months therapy were traditional and failed miserably. Then the sudden surprise came while Catherine began recalling her past life traumas during hypnotic sessions. She had been born in 86 lives so far in several continents in various forms. Interestingly it was evident the souls take birth in close proximity i.e the people associated with Catherine in the present lifetime (not only family, but the friends, boyfriend, teachers, even Dr. Weiss). They were found visible in past lives as well. The moment Catherine could figure out root causes of problems in present times in some other life, the symptoms got vanished and got gradually cured.

More interestingly, Dr. Weiss could receive the messages from the masters in between states of lives where Catherine was floating in some of planes. The explanations of planes, dimensions, vibrations were mind-blowing.

Few of the messages from masters were like this:

  • Our task is to learn throughout our lives and by knowledge we can approach god. Then we comeback and teach others.
  • There are many gods and god resides inside of each of us.
  • Karmic debts are flown from one life to another . The moment we achieve higher level of consciousness, we become strong enough to master the external problems in physical state and in effect those habits we do not accumulate and carry forward in the next life.
  • There are different planes and dimensions. Every soul travels different planes at different times based on the level of consciousness (based on the learning/knowledge/progress during lifetime).
  • We should not only drawn towards people with same vibrations though that is the normal tendency. We must connect people with wrong vibrations to help them. All of us hold intuitive powers and that should be followed instead of resistance.
  • We are given intuitive powers we should follow and not try to resist. Resistance will bring danger. We are not sent back with same level of powers. Someone possess greater amount of powers which got accumulated from other times. All people will reach to a point of equality even though they are not being created  as equal.
  • The souls can crossover one plane to another in-case there are no more learning in the physical state. But they must comeback in the physical states if more learning are pending.
  • Certain attitudes are very important during learning like charity, hope, faith, love. More and more we learn doing without expectation in return (unselfishly ), we come closer to masters.
  • Once we accomplish what we have been sent for, the physical state of life ends. The guidance by masters will come in time when needed in some form.
  • Patience and timing are two key parameters. Everything comes when it must come. This can not be rushed, planned, We must accept what comes to us at a time. Life is endless. We never die and never really born. We just run through different phases. There is no end. Humans have many dimensions.  We see lessons  (which got learned) in time.
  • Fear in mind wastes energy. It stifles humans from fulfilling what there were sent to. We should take our cues on learning from surroundings. That is possible only when we can step in very deep inside the souls. It is like mountains. Inside mountain it is quite, But the trouble is visible outside. But we can see volcano once we can go deep inside.
  • There is no pain in the state of spirits. There are only happiness during spiritual state. Feelings, Pain are evident in physical state. We can hence learn relationship in physical state only. Learning in spiritual state will be different. That is the state of renewal.
  • It is all about growth and learning. There are so many stages of development. We shed a baby body, child, adult, old age. But we keep growing in the spiritual plane as well. Renewal, learning and stage of decision are the development phases. Masters /Spirits decides when, where and why to return. Some may choose not to return and choose some stage of development. Our body is just a vehicle while we are in human state. Our soul and spirits last forever.
  • Learning is much faster in spiritual state than the same in the physical state. But spirits choose what to learn. If needed, they can comeback in physical state to learn something through relationship. However,  the contact can always be established from spiritual state to someone specific in the physical state if choose to and if utmost important. The connection can be through mind, sometimes even like a physical appearance (as it was in a physical state).
  • Coexistence and harmony are the key for the balance of things. Everything must be balanced. Nature is balanced. Nature is about energy , life and restoration. Humans have not learned to do the same. Rather they are prone towards destruction.
  • There are seven planes in all, each one consisting of many levels.One of them is recollection where we are allowed to collect our thoughts. We can even see the life which just got passed. The spirits of higher levels (sages) are allowed to see history.
  • We have debts that must be paid. If we have not paid, then those debts will be carried forward into another life.( page 172)
  • All the seven planes are to be passed before returning to the physical state. The plane of transition determines what we will take back in the next life.We all have a dominant trait, may be greed,lust. Whatever is determined, we need to fulfill our debts to people. We need to learn to overcome this in lifetime. If not, the same will be carry forwarded. The burdens  will become greater life to life in-case debts are not fulfilled. In effect  next life will become harder, otherwise next life can be easy (if debts are fulfilled ).
  • There is a plane which allows souls to manifest themselves to the people who are still in physical form (only if they have left some agreement unfulfilled )
  • there are plane of transition and also plane of awareness. We come from one life, and , if the lessons are completed, we move to another dimension,  another life.

They became  more calm, patient, peaceful. Life was more restful and happier. The life was filled with joy, hope, more purpose and off-course satisfaction.  The fear for death/nonexistence was diminished not only for self, but also for near and dear ones. The learning about anger and resentment, harboring feeling towards people will help us to gain more control on life. With time Catherine appeared more serene, softer and more patient.  She became more confident and people were drawn towards her. Her inner personality  was started shining like diamond. Life became simpler, honest, direct, less confusing and relaxed. They learnt to have faith, trust in people.  Catherine could learn her insight through it’s super-conscious state regarding her weaknesses,  strength. She could figure out the behavioural attributes which needed her attention in order have improvement. There was learning from masters on eradication of fears, especially fear of death, learning about trust and forgiveness.

The messages / behavioral patterns learned through regressions therapy and masters are evident is almost all spiritual books of any religion (say The Bhagawat Geeta, The Bible, The Korhan etc.). Those books intent to teach people about the spirits of life as well. But unfortunately many of us dislike or reluctant to learn from those messages. There lies the success of the book written by Dr.Brian L Weiss.

The way the entire real life story narrated, it became extremely interesting for the present generation.

Look forward reading his other books (Miracles Happen, Through Time Into Healing, Only Love Is Real, Messages From The Masters, Same Soul Many Bodies, Mirrors of Time, Meditation, Eliminating Stress, Finding Inner Peace, Healing the Mind and Spirit Cards) shortly and keep the audience updated.

Net neutrality ! And life?

Readers are already started thinking what is the co-relation between “Net neutrality” and “Life”? Or at all there is any co-relation?

Yes, there is a deep co-relation.

We got concerned on service providers control on our internet usage and concern is genuine.

But what about other aspects of life? Are they out of influence?

Are we able to eat, drink, read, invest, see, think, travel, buy as per our choice, as per best price-performance?

Sorry my dear friend, we are not. We are being controlled, induced, directed by others for their own interest.

Still not able to connect? Not able to believe?

Need examples as a proof of the concept.

Our child are deeply addicted with two / three of the major brands of the market. We take the decision based on the company advertisement that their product will help the child grow faster than the competition (and those are consumed by some celebrity).

The impact of Two minutes food already we have seen.

We get carried away with the promotions. 50% discounts, 50%+40%, flash sales, big billion day, Wednesday offers and so many others factors influence our thought process and enforce us to buy things in either poor quality or unwanted in nature. But we hardly feel it.

Let it be politics, news, books, flats, mutual funds, computers, medicines, education you name it. Nothing is out of influence.

We can only see what is being shown to us. Seems like a magic which puts us on the hallucinated world.

Lot of us have got messages in social media that only 2 minutes noodles was not culprit. Lot of other stuffs starting from baby foods, chips, cold drinks, instant foods, Lozenges, Cadbury,  balms, medicines are highly dangerous for human beings. But why only 2 minutes noodles is being picked? What about others? Don’t you feel some bigger story is behind this 2 minutes noodles case beyond the food quality issues?

You might have seen the movie you disliked most have also done major sales.

How can we have thought neutrality? How we can protect ourselves from the external influences to take decision independently?

This is the only way to have Life Neutrality.

How? Billion dollar question. Love to have reader’s feedback.



Recipe of Life

Dear Readers,

Do not expect what your mind is habituated to read further. Right you are. I am not going to give you some “sutras” like a “Guru” on life.

I am here to share my realization on the basis of what I have learned so far.

Last couple of years few of my friends, colleagues, relatives left for heavenly just out of the blue. Few of the scenarios still I cannot believe and the same makes me seriously perplexed.

Stressful life and rat race, outcome of a materialistic world (where we strive only for success) are putting us into lot of troubles. We need to contemplate the spirit of life.

Here are few of my thoughts:

  1. Lifestyle

We need to search for peace, happiness and joy. These got missed out from our life and in effect we messed up with our life.  We need to have balanced, successful life for good health, relationships, and mental peace.

Let us come out of the thought process “I am the Organization”. The same philosophy generally eats out our bandwidth. We tend to stretch ourselves to cover up other’s shortfalls. Let us practise not to mix the professional life with personal life. We are restless with our office, family, children and the success. Let us try to have more composed to avoid distress.

We need to take leaves/ break from work, spent quality times with family, friends.

Always reward your long hours of labor and toil in the very best way, surrounded by your family. Nurture their love carefully, remembering that your children need models, not critics, and your own progress will hasten when you constantly strive to present your best side to your children. And even if you have failed at all else in the eyes of the world, if you have a loving family, you are a success.” – Og Mandino

  1. Routine Health Habits

Now a days, due to technological enhancement (AC, Lift), we are having lesser physical movement. We tend to keep working seating in an AC cabin for 12 hours long, keep on having junk foods and in effect gain weight.

Reduction of weight is important in order to keep it within stipulated limit. This will help us minimizing lot of health hazerds.

Morning walk, yoga, running, cycling, swimming etc are few elements which can help us in burning calories and keep ourselves fit. At least spending one hour in physical exercise in the morning is absolutely necessary. In order to wake up early, sleeping early is important and we need to sleep around 8hours.

  1. Food habits

We need to reduce consumptions of junk foods, Oily foods, fast foods. Mostly we should focus on homemade foods instead of restaurant foods.

We need to reduce quantity of foods and consume more salads, curd etc. Morning breakfast should be heavy and dinner should be very light. We need to have dinners 2 hours before the sleep.

  1. Addictions

We need to come out of excessive/regular Smoking, Drinking and other addiction. Some occasional in takes are alright. But regular habits will land us to the danger zone.

  1. Health Check-up

It is always better to have preventive maintenance of any machine. Human body being the most critical machine available in this earth, it is important to test proper functioning of the same. We are living already in risks due to pollution. Hence having health-check-up on periodic basic (at least yearly once) as advised by specialist doctors will enable us to identify the problem areas and have corrective actions before stepping into the danger zone. Few of the sample tests are as follows:

  • Routine blood test -TC, DC, ESR, Haemoglobin
  • Blood for Fasting sugar & PP.
  • Blood for Urea & Creatinine.
  • Liver function test
  • Complete Lipid profile.
  • ECG
  • USG whole abdomen
  • Urine and Stool testing.

(But please take advice from doctors before going for test and the reports to be co-related and actions to be performed based on test results)

  1. Insurance Policy

We must have Health insurance for the full family. Family floater will be a good option. We should invest in our early age so that best possible options can be availed.

Besides, we need to have Term Policy to cover up dependents in case of any accidental issues.

Friends, do not think I am following everything listed above. But trying to follow at least. There may be plenty other good suggestions. Readers/friends may add the same in reply for the betterment of everyone.

Life is a gift to us by god. Let us enjoy every moments of it.

Journey of Life

It is not dark,

           It is the absence of “Light”.

It is not black,

          Rather it is the absence of “Colour”.

It is not fear,

          It is the absence of “Courage”.

It is not wrong,

          It is the knowledge towards ‘Right”.

It is not weakness,

          It is the pathway for getting “Strength”.

It is not failure,

          It is the elimination of hurdles for “Success”.

It is not defeat,

          It is the wisdom for “win”.

It is not the end,

          It is the start of New Beginning.

Life is Simple,

          We make this complex.

Think Positive,

          And enjoy the journey of life.

Health is Wealth. But we tend to forget the same in our life, especially Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs try always to take all the burden on his/her shoulder and keep on stretching themselves. Hence working beyond schedule, sleepless nights, extensive travels, concentrating on work skipping meals are quite natural phenomenon. We tend to work 16-24 hours and compromise on sleeping habits. We fail to exercise with an excuse of time management. In effect we get screwed with stress, diabetics, hypertension, insomnia, stomach issues, gastric, fatty liver, ulcers, and heart diseases. When we are being attacked with any such problem, we tend to look back, but it is already late. We will not be left with any other options other than defending it. Hence It is high time , we honour our health, take proactive measures to have it in our control so that we can contribute more to the society and also our beloved family.

There was a great initiative by TiE Kolkata last week on this issues. The event was having speakers like Smita Roy Choudhury, Preeyam Budhia , Kripa Sagar and Harsha Banthia with Nayantara Palchoudhuri as Moderator.

The panel was filled all Women Entrepreneurs and their inspiring stories were so simple, free flowing , but extremely motivating.

Smita is a Dietitian with a deep domain expertise on food service or nutritional programs. Her message was to follow the nature. We should take heavy breakfast within 10 am (when metabolism is kicked off and in full swing) and Evening snacks (when metabolism tends to get slow down). Lunch and Dinner should not be heavy. When Sun rises and when it sets are the high time to take food. Our kids tends suffer with lot of problems due to wrong life style. They fail to have morning clearances with constipation, very light or no breakfast, also no tiffin in school or junk foods, 1st heavy meal at late afternoon. If we can have disciplined food habits, we may not have to opt for several slimming diet programs (like GM Diet etc)

Preeyam shared his very personal story which touched all of us and most of us were not able to hold our tears. She was working in UK. But she left the job and came back to Kolkata to join hands with her mother to start their venture AddLife. The aim is to support mental health. In Kolkata (probably in India as well) we do not have proper eco system to get guided healthcare support when ever we are into a problem. Our healthcare system, methodology are driven by patient’s paying capability, not by their diseases. Out of the entire domain she is trying take care of the mental health as specialization and she aspires to rule not only Pan India, but the Globe. Lets wish her all the best.

Harsha  is a Yoga Trainer. She spans her expertise in physical fitness,Sound Therapy and Pranic Healing. She inspired us to foucs on physical fitness. Instead of thinking big, we should focus on small milestines like 10minutes yoga/jogging/walk in the morning to startwith instead of doing nothing. Getting the kickstart is most important. Then gradually we can increase and will get automatically motivated once get refreshed. She believes that a “Healthy body leads to a healthy mind which in turn brings all happiness and positive power to lead a beautiful life”.

Kripa  was a smoker for 26 years and she is running marathon now leaving behind her addiction. Everyday running gives us lot of life to our Lungs, Heart. She was not a runner initially. She started running in an amature way alongwith one of here relative and now it has become her passion. She came to Kolkata as 9th City to run marathon. Her message included the campaign “Take A Breath of Fresh Air” which promotes running as an aid for those who want to quit smoking (or any other addiction) and have fun doing it.

Let us awake. Let us take small steps to have our health well. Let us love our life and run for our Heart everyday morning.

We do not have any control on our Birth, Desease, Oldage and Death. But we can be disciplined in life and rest will fall in place. Lets surrender to Supreme Lord and start working on our Health.

Our Entrepreneurial Journey will extend.

Lets celebrate Entrepreneurship.

Entire Panelist along with President Mr.Radhakrishnan

The Secret cause of Life Problems

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” –John Lennon

This is not just a quote, but a true insight of our life. The root cause of any of our problems are linked with being unhappy.

When I was a kid, there was no television, no tube light, and no mobile. Bibidha Bharati was one of the attraction in those days in radio. Load shedding was regular experienced since there was no inverter. Life was slow, but cool as per today’s standard. But I was unhappy (not only me, for everyone) in the aspiration of having all those what we have today.

But my daughter is still unhappy even after having all these since birth.

Same is applicable in every stage of life. In jobs, we are unhappy with the work, angry with boss, irritated with fellow colleague, dissatisfied with company owner and aspire to join other organization where everything is assumed to be perfect.

Alas, if this would have been true!

In one of our previous jobs, I had selected a guy in a salary of 5k per month. He was very happy while he joined the organization since he was earning 1.5K more than his previous assignment. But the situation reversed the moment one of his colleague joined. The new guy was recruited on 8K per month based on his last salary 7K. But the 1st guy became unhappy since in the same job role he is getting 3K lesser than his new friend.

If I have a Maruti alto, I am unhappy why I am not having Swift Dezire like my relative. But the desire fellow is also unhappy aspiring for Honda city.

We are not happy with whatever we have, we dream to achieve which rest of the people have and in effect keeps running.

But when we achieve some milestone, the desire goal post shifts and the unhappy story continues.

It is not easy to become happy. It is to be practiced for years. If we can achieve it, that will be the greatest glory of life.

Life is beautiful. Let us be happy and enjoy every moment of life.
