The festival of lights

It’s the “Festival of Lights” today,
It’s again the day of Diwali,
It’s time to dress up folks,
It’s time to adorn the thali.

It’s the occasion to throng the temples,
Pray to the Gods and give them offerings,
It’s an opportunity to entreat the deities,
To bless us all and rid us of sufferings.

It’s the day to light the diyas,
Ignite the rockets and burst crackers,
But it’s also the time to be safe,
From the fireworks and all the sparklers.Read more at

It’s the season to pay a visit,
To all our friends and relations,
To hand them over sweets and presents,
Diwali is our splendid chance

Maha Navami: The belief

Navami is believed to be the last day of Goddess Durga’s fight with the buffalo demon Mahishasura. The battle that continued for days, ended on the tenth day, which we celebrate as Vijay Dashmi, on which Goddess Durga defeated Mahishasura. In parts of Bengal, where Durga Puja is celebratedwith great gusto, pandals can be seen bustling with a huge crowd making merry in the festive vibe, gorging on delicious snacks and participating in cultural events, since it is the last day before Maa Durga takes her ride back to heaven. The rituals for Navami start with a holy bath followed with a special Shodhasopachar of the deity.

End is the beginning

In our life, we always have a time when there’s no hope, no light and no way from getting out of that traumatic situation. Where there’s not a thing we’ve done to make things right, but all in vain

At that time we didn’t realised what we achieved today, is that the dilemma situation was never a situation, it was a cocoon. And then, we change. We turn into something more reliable, logical and excited.

As it is said in Hindi “ek patthar chot kha ke kankar kankar ho gaya, aur ek patthar chot seh ke Shankar Shankar ho gya” it means “a stone who couldn’t bear the beating turned into a bowlder and the same stone, if beared the pain, turned into a mighty God. The pain and the tears we suffer are the ones that defines what we are in real because if we survive the period with getting down but not out, we’ll turn out to be one of the greatest legacies ever made. #EndureAndSurvive

The PAST !! #ThoughtOfTheDay

Man leave the past in the past. That’s where it belongs. The trouble with addicts is that they carry bad memories around with them – like old luggage. And in that luggage that’s where they carry their blueprint for living. You got to decide what’s worth keeping, and then set the rest of it on the curb for the garbage.

The past is important because it builds the foundation where future blossoms. But we can’t stick to a seed as it is essential to grow the former in a plant. We should, must and have to focus on the present. Why ? Because that’s what in our manipulative control. As it’s written in Bhagwad Gita “you have the right to work only. But you are not entitled to the fruits of action”

Gods and Legends

What defines a God ? God is the one with the supreme value, the creator of the world, the one that shows us the right path when the time is against us. But here’s a fact about the mighty name ‘God’. It is imperceptible. We never seen the being called ‘god’ and even if anyone did, there’s no embossed proof of the former. Many people will say that there are certain miracles or things transpired (like the invention of human life) which can receive our faith in God. So in short, god is a undeniable yet invisible thing or energy which reflects our Actions in our future. Examples of God : Lord Shiva, Krishna, Jesus Christ, Lord Ram, etc.

Now what defines a legend ? A legend is a mortal, destroyable, living or non living thing which inspires us living the life an ideal way. Legends goad is to go through things, not which are hypothetical but instead what’s transpired and have been done before. 

Hardwork, dedication and enthusiasm. The three creates an ordinary person into one of the the deserved ideals for the world to look on with a hope and motive. Examples of legends : The Ramayan, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Swami Vivekananda, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.

The bottom line is that both – legends and Gods are important to lead a satisfactory and ethical life. Where gods show us the path, legends show us how to walk on that path. Both are important in our life

A wing and a prayer

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected

  Through prayers to God, we feel connected

            Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove

    Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love

      Wings of a jet plane provide steady flight

   I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight

   Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free

    And free from this monster is what I pray you’ll soon be

   Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest

    We’re spreading our prayers that you’ll always be Blessed

 Go fight and win this battle you didn’t start

  On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart

Leave it all philosophy (by Dwayne Johnson)


Back when I was a punk kid my dad would take me to the gym on weekends and kick the shit outta me in the weight room and on the wrestling mats. He’d say you didn’t get up early to come here and give half ass effort. Leave it all in the gym. 
Years later when I played ball at The U, we applied the same principles: we left it all on the field.

When I became a pro wrestler, that was part of my nightly pre match prayer. Asked for the strength to leave it all in ring – whether I was wrestling in flea markets or sold out stadiums. 

Leaving it all…means you give every f*cking ounce of effort you can, to give the best performance you can give. 

Whatever it is you do, whatever job you have.. at the end of the day, leave it all there. 

Rampage has been the most physically grueling role of my career. Got my ass kicked and handed back to me the whole movie. But I’m grateful to go to bed 💯 satisfied I left it all on the set. 

Who the f@ck am I kidding, I don’t sleep, but if I did, I still left it all on the set.
