The Power-Fire ball"

                                                           The power-fire ball

Power is the ability to attract and redirect thoughts into action. The attachment to materialism and desires gives birth to the power. Thus power lust is inevitable. How we quantify power is a subject to reference frame of different societies and ecosystems. It could be quantified with money, respect, love, fame or ideas etc.

 “Power is like a fireball, if channelised precisely it is constructive energy, if misguided it is a catastrophe.”
Power like everything in the universe has both the extreme ends. It is black (+)as well as white(-).

(+)Great prophets like Jesus, Buddha and Mohammad to leaders like Gandhi and Mandela possessed the power and have shaped history, and people who possess the power will continue to mould the future. But power has repercussions and obsessions attached to it.

(-)The real test of strength and character of a man is his actions when he has been handed the power. He might subdue the weaker ones for his motive and prove his mettle. Hitler killing the Jews to corrupt politicians scavenging people’s money and life. Nuclear weapons proliferation to male dominance around the world throughout history. Horrible boss at the office to an everyday example of man killing an animal for taste buds is testimony to the fact that the power lust blindfolds the mankind.

If power is a fireball, discontentment (+/-) is a fuel to it. A handful people earn great wealth (+/-) and riches, so tremendous that they can’t spend their entire money in their lifetime, even if they wish to. But they are never satiated by their possession, because money is not just a method of exchange, it generates power.

When the power is seized or denied, the soul cries for it. Man keeps pouring the fuel of discontentment to himself. Either he patiently (+) rubs the stones to create the spark or slips into the hollowness and accepts the state. In extreme cases it is suicidal.
The only way to control the power and save yourself from it, is to keep lighting the lamps of souls who lack it

But no matter what you do or intend to do, you always seek some kind of a power. The journey for the attainment of power will burn you the extent you desire it, question that matters is,

                       “Is the burn worth it? “ 


When Rejection meets death..



As I entered the cathedral, at least a dozen people were weeping profusely. What the Fuck?Its ok,I lost a six figure job and I feel dejected after the rejection but why the hell  are you people crying? –I said in a low tone to myself.

Chapter 1- The New year gift
With limited pennies in the pocket, me and my team “The Conrods” were marching towards the Dhaba Express to satiate our lust to celebrate the new year’s eve.
BEEP(my mobile rings). It’s an e-mail
“Humais I have got a mail, it’s from a company. I am not sure, what does it mean?”
Humains and promit,the two potential stalwarts of Mahindra  bounced to my mobile to have a look at it. It read:

Wish you a very Happy & Prosperous New year 2014.

 Is it from the same company, you attended an interview?,’ Humais inquired.
Actually it was from the company in which me and some of my friends underwent three interviews, a group discussion, one written and a psychometric test ,so it will be ethically wrong to say “underwent  AN interview, but I said Yes.
“Bro,Congrats.it’s a confirmation mail. You have got a job now, you are placed. What better way to start a new year “, Humais said.

(Amused, bewildered and excited)
 “How is it possible?, I was not shortlisted “I said. Although I felt I fared really well and it was the best among my very few interviews and deep inside I could not believe how Santa clause had managed to fulfil my wish in a span of 7 days. Maybe be he has upgraded his reindeers or switched to DLF,’ I thought.
 “They might have forgotten to contact you and now they are sending the official mail.” Promit said.
Okay,  that sounds like a possibility,’ I Said.
Congrats Animesh, Just contact them tomorrow for clarifications.The job is almost in your pocket
,’Shiva said
Yes,this looks a decent idea. Thanks shiva’ I said.
Yes, the happiness was slowly seeping into my nerves .Chants of treat; treat and treat were all around. Though I effectively managed to ignore them, not because I was not willing to (fingers crossed) but because I was still not sure whether I had nailed it down.

Chapter 2 – The Good,the bad and the Ugly.

Next morning after having conversation with my father,I decided to reply them.It read

With the same high spirits and zeal, I decided to meet the HR. After having a stale breakfast at the mess, I started my expedition for Rojgar(employment).

With waves of uncertainty within my mind, I boarded the train to Marina Beach.At Tambaram,my phone rings.It was from a landline.

“Hello, I am Ajay Gupta calling from Sanmar group. Am I talking to Mr.Animesh? ‘’
“Yes sir, Animesh here”

“Animesh, I just received your  e-mail. I am really sorry that you have not been finalised for the Sanmar group.It was a human error from my side.I Am really sorry.,’Ajay said
Silence..Silence..(10 deadly seconds)

“Ok sir.(Sh) It happens,I am on my way to your office,I would like to meet you,’ I said in heavy tone.
“no need to come,that won’t make any difference” Ajay said.
“No problem sir,I would just like to meet you.” I said

It was soon followed by an e-mail,it read

Hi Animesh

Apologies. This email was sent to you mistakenly. Kindly ignore this email.

Thanks & Regards,

Ajay Gupta

Whooo,it was not the first time I was handed a lemon instead of a  lemonade, but it  was possibly the most sour one handed to me Kindly.
I felt like a child, being snatched away from his favourite nipple, or like a bear awoken from his slumber or like a student handed with a fake leaked paper or like a bride with dowry mongering in laws and many more.


A Light..

                                             A Light..


They say its darkness all around,
And opportunities within the bound..
A doom almost certain,
Time to close the curtains..

But I see a light,
Flickering with might..
Somewhere deep within,
Inside me and every other kin..
Undiscovered and brushed aside,
Thirsty to be agnized…

I see a light,
Weak and yet not so bright..
But if fuelled with wisdom and valour,
Potent enough to illuminate chandelier..
Ravishing and yet so serene,
Paragon of hope and sheen..

Proliferating with confidence
Annihilating the duskiness..
No matter what they say,
There will be light all around..
