Blogging Truth & C.W.S

After having experienced some weekends since I started blogging actively, I reached to this conclusion. I’m suffering from C.W.S – Comment Withdrawal Syndrome. Its typical symptoms are looking blankly at mail inbox [gmail in my case], refreshing it in the hope a new comment has come but gmail hasn’t recorded it yet, refreshing blog page to see any new viewers in FEEDJIT and checking the FeedReader even when its tray icon hasn’t gone orange to show new feeds..Meanwhile I get around accomplishing some of the resolutions posted earlier here. I do active commenting in the blogs I’d bookmarked to read later [Ishmeet must be feeling deluged right now]

I guess all experienced bloggers already know this…I’m posting this just for killing time and helping some newbies. This is the blogging truth my dears.

My blog readers & commenters seem to have a social life on weekends. On other hand there is me..whose circle of friends got separated after college, has now colleagues as friends, who lives in a small town which has only 2 or 3 hangout places and who even if hangs out there encounters many of her students & it becomes awkward. Sad state of affairs! Here is another flow diagram about my blogging process.

This the reason why the bar doesn’t reach 100% in the bar graph. But as rightly said in Bhagavad Gita;
Meaning : Your freedom is only in the field of action, and not in the field of bringing about the fruits of action. Never take yourself as the cause of bringing about a karma-phala (situation), and never resort to a life of inaction.

P.S. I made these diagrams on Smart Draw. Its a wonderful software with all sorts of templates ranging from engineering diagrams to organizational charts.

My Town – Part 1

Some photos of my hometown…..This is the Rail Chowk (where four roads meet). The monument depicts a long railway track surrounding the Earth.

The most famous verse from the Bhagvad Gita (a holy book of Hindus) and the one I remember most clearly (credit goes to The Mahabharata serial on tv) comes to my mind whenever I see the famous picture of Lord Krishna as the charioteer and Arjun in the seat during the battle of Kurukshetra.

Yada yada hi dharmasya
Glanir bhavati bharata
Abhyutthanam adharmasya

TRANSLATION

Whenever and wherever there is decay
of righteousness, O Bharata,
And a rise of unrighteousness
then I manifest Myself!

OR

Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion–at that time I descend Myself.

vinasaya ca duskrtam

In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I advent Myself millennium after millennium.
