My HumilityViews: 816

Humility is an excellent watchword. I was always considered below average by my parents as well as neighbors that I started believing in it my self as early as I was four-year-old. When I was sent to school for the first time I was nine years old along with my four year old little brother. I was rejected by the school master. That inculcated enough inferiority complex in myself that I started learning from scratch myself uninitiated by half-baked schoolmasters of the 1930s. I went to school with my dad’s influence joined standard V without knowing alphabets in any language. After 60 years of vigorous Philosophizing, I was wondering what is ‘Job satisfaction’? Painting like Piccaso? Or getting a few hardened criminals out of ‘Goal’ as their mouthpiece so that they can continue their nefarious business? Or driving a herd of fat sheep to the slaughterhouse and carry back sack loads of money to raise more goats or sheep? Or make a film that would run 175 days in hundred centers acquire hundreds of acres in the city suburbs and wait for the right amount of inflation to make a kill? When you grow as old I am you would realize that you couldn’t clear five feet six inches crossbar anymore or run your hundred meters at 11.4 seconds. You can’t even bounce one cricket ball an over. You feel excited over a trip to UK and after three weeks you feel that you could have been more at home with your own dentist what with a nagging pain in one shakier molar. You get back home with 11 fractures and a head injury and convalesce for three or four years . You fight shy of a 10 pound haircut by a lady in the saloon street while at home it would cost you less than 2 pounds, even that because you want to save your image as an actor while others pay just a fourth of it. I shall write more if you do not get bored this easy

I have been a member of the Ryze Network since 2004 and have been reading most of your postings.

I have not actually joined in any conversation till date as I chose to watch from the sidelines.

Just felt that I should pen a few lines to say you have a really good way of putting together your experiences on paper. I wonder if the rest of us will enjoy the same sense of humor as you do at your age!

Maybe one of the Chennai Ryzers like LK(G) or Padmanabhan can compile all your postings and publish a book? :)

Warm regards,

All are over powered by self aadakam with myself included!

But only Charu anna can call himself a idiot and make us all agree that he is wise!

But I really appreciate the ability of Charu anna to overcome many of his earlier set backs and that to in his formative years.

While some of his candid take on religion or belief systems may have no takers it certainly makes us to ponder over same.

Well ... I am with him on the religion / belief system.

When you start traveling to other countries you realize that each region has its own sense of what's appropriate and what's not besides, of course, who is correct and who is not and which religion is the right one to follow, etc.

Live and let live is a better policy to adopt without insisting everyone should follow your line of thinking (which may be correct for you and wrong for many others)

Finally, when we kick the bucket I doubt if any one of us really has a clue what happens, barring, of course for the various religious customs and practices being followed across the world more as a way to deal with the grief of loosing a loved one and nothing more.

None of the so called pundits, purohits, evangelists or mullahs have any first hand experience of what can or will happen when our body ceases to do the daily functions. Generations together we keep repeating the same thing to our children in the belief that what we have been told is unquestionably correct. Everything is hearsay :)

A recent visit to the Planetarium with my kids served as a further eye opener when we realize that our entire planet is but a tiny dot amongst the innumerable number of planets, stars, nebulae and galaxies. Apparently, our "observable" universe is only 14 billion light years old. Some of the light from distant regions are yet to reach us!

For those who might be interested http://www.hubblesite.org/gallery/

And here we are fight and argue over some vague religious belief which is really of no consequence in the larger scheme of things. The limited time we have must be utilized for more memorable stuff (atleast for our near and dear ones since we may not be around to share the nostalgia :)

about our planet I would go on to say two things,

it is freaky because there is life
it is a lonely planet after all in our solar system

It is true that we are small speck in the solar system and we are yet to establish any contact with other planets.

Let us wait and watch the developments.
