Homage to my Gurus

Today is Guru Pournima. Many students sent me messages; some called me to wish “Happy Guru Pournima”. It’s really surprises me, as time passes relation between Guru-Shishya is becoming formality(?) or is it becoming high-tech. I remember, we used to go to our teachers home to give them homage & a flower. They were very touching moments for us & them also. After some years I was on the role & I remember some years back students also used to come to me with flowers but importantly with some gifts!! It was shocking for me to know that they had competition in between them regarding gift cost, size etc. Now this year I just received SMS & phone calls. This is high-tech Guru Pournima. In the old age there was a very thin line between Guru & Shikshak. But unfortunately today this is not the case, we all will agree with this. Yes, there are some exceptions.
I am dreaming for the day when there will be no discrepancy between Guru & Shikshak.
In my life I also have blessings of Gurus. But I strongly believe that firstly you should become your Guru, trust yourself. When I think of Guru, certainly 3 persons appear in my mind. Swami Vivekanand, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam & Anand Shah.
Swami Vivekanand is no more on this tiny blue spot but his thoughts are here always. I never got a chance to meet him, but he is the first person who influenced me when I was grown up & searching for path. He is the one who leads me to what I am today. I used to spent hours to read his literature & tried to live every moment what he described.

Secondly Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam; the living legend for me. I met him once personally but more than that I lived with him in thoughts. He guided me, showed me the path. I still remember his warm hands on my back, encourages me for the future work. “Let my Brain remove thy Pain”.

And the last but not the least Anand Shah; with whom I spent thousands of hours. He is the one who mentored me in many aspects when I was very young. Even I can’t list out what I learned from him. He treated me like a younger brother, though we have age difference of around 17 years we are very good friends & for me he is the living Guru for me. I never expressed this to him but today I am taking this opportunity to express myself here on blog. And apart from this I have to mention an organization who teaches me a lot “Eklavya Prakashan” where I worked for 2.5 years.

I pray my homage to my Gurus, without them I don't know where I would be. I wish for the healthy & long, happy life for the Dr. Kalam & Anand Shah.

काचेची बरणी आणि २ कप चहा

काचेची बरणी आणि २ कप चहा

The good one I read today. Read it & we will have cup of tea some day soon.

आयुष्यात जेव्हा एकाच वेळी अनेक गोष्टी कराव्याशा वाटतात आणि दिवसाचे २४ तासही अपुरे पडतात तेव्हा काचेची बरणी आणि २ कप चहा आठवुन पहा.

तत्वज्ञानाचे प्राध्यापक वर्गावर आले. त्यांनी येताना काही वस्तू बरोबर आणल्या होत्या. तास सुरु झाला आणि सरांनी काही न बोलता मोठी काचेची बरणी टेबलावर ठेवली आणि त्यात ते पिंगपाँगचे बॉल भरु लागले. ते भरुन झाल्यावर त्यांनी मुलांना बरणी पुर्ण भरली का म्हणुन विचारले. मुले हो म्हणाली. मग सरांनी दगड खड्यांचा बॉक्स घेऊन तो बरणीत रिकामा केला आणी हळुच ती बरणी हलवली. बरणीत जिथे जिथे मोकळी जागा होती तिथे ते दगड खडे जाऊन बसले. त्यांनी पुन्हा मुलांना बरणी भरली का म्हणून विचारले. मुलांनी एका आवाजात होकार भरला. सरांनी नंतर एका पिशवीतून आणलेली वाळू त्या बरणीत ओतली. बरणी भरली. त्यानी मुलांना बरणी भरली का म्हणून विचारलं. मुलांनी ताबडतोब हो म्हटलं. मग सरांनी टेबलाखालुन चहा भरलेले दोन कप घेतले आणि तेही बरणीत रिकामे केले. वाळूमध्ये जी काही जागा होती ती चहाने पुर्ण भरून निघाली. विद्यार्थ्यांमध्ये एकच हशा पिकला. तो संपताच सर म्हणाले "आता जी बरणी आहे तिला तुमचे आयुष्य समजा. पिंगपाँगचे बॉल ही महत्त्वाची गोष्ट आहे - देव, कुटुंब, मुलं, आरोग्य, मित्र आणि आवडीचे छंद - या अशा गोष्टी आहेत की तुमच्याकडचं सारं काही गेलं आणि ह्याच गोष्टी राहिल्या तरी तुमचं आयुष्य परिपूर्ण असेल. दगड खडे ह्या इतर गोष्टी म्हणजे तुमची नोकरी, घर आणि कार. उरलेलं सारं म्हणजे वाळू - म्हणजे अगदी लहान सहान गोष्टी.

"आता तुम्ही बरणीमध्ये प्रथम वाळू भरलीत तर पिंगपाँगचे बॉल किंवा दगड खडे यांच्यासाठी जागा उरणार नाही. तीच गोष्ट आपल्या आयुष्याची. तुम्ही आपला सारा वेळ आणी सारी शक्ती लहान लहान गोष्टींवर खर्च केलीत तर महत्त्वाच्या गोष्टींसाठी तुमच्यापाशी वेळच रहाणार नाही. तेव्हा..आपल्या सुखासाठी महत्त्वाचं काय आहे त्याकडे लश द्या.

"आपल्या मुलाबाळांबरोबर खेळा. मेडिकल चेकअप करून घेण्यासाठी वेळ काढा. आपल्या जोडीदाराला बाहेर जेवायला घेऊन जा. घराची साफ़-सफ़ाई करायला आणि टाकाऊ वस्तूंची विल्हेवाट लावायला तर नेहमीच वेळ मिळत जाईल."

"पिंगपाँगच्या बॉलची काळजी आधी घ्या. त्याच गोष्टींना खरे महत्त्व आहे. प्रथम काय करायचे आहे हे ठरवून ठेवा. बाकी सगळी वाळू आहे."

सरांचे बोलून होताच एका विद्यार्थिनीचा हात वर गेला. तिनं विचारलं - "यात चहा म्हणजे काय?"

सर हसले आणि म्हणाले - "बरं झालं तु विचारलंस. तुझ्या प्रश्नाचा अर्थच असा की आयुष्य कितीही परिपूर्ण वाटलं तरी मित्राबरोबर एक-दोन कप चहा घेण्याइतकी जागा नेहमीच असते.

Black Buck Saturday @~@

Well-well-well, this friday night planned a great morning for me. We reached by 8:00 pm at Rehekuri sanctuary. This is reserved for Black Bucks. When we reached there, it was black out as there were no electricity. And what an astronomer want more ?? Twinkle Twinkle stars everywhere.. & milky way on the zenith AWESOME !!
It was a pleasant morning, cold breeze, very energizing aroma around. We took a long walk in Sanctuary, we only 4 were present in the 2.17 Sq. Kms. sanctuary. One male black buck welcomed us standing right in the middle of the road. Then it was all fun & thrilling experience for me to follow hundreds of black bucks.
Overall this was a gr8 saturday,
"Black Buck Saturday @~@"

Tuesday, July 06, 2010 Evening in Delhi !!

Well, writing after many days, came back from Delhi in last week. Went to delhi for All India Asteroid Search Campaign workshop. Very nice meeting with CB Devgun. Delhi really capital of India in every aspect. Stayed at house of MP Dilip Gandhi. Metros are really excellent for transportation. Very nice evening at India gate. It was very humid out there, took bath 3 times in a day. Journey of both side was good and enjoyed a lot with sharing experiences with people from various parts of India.
Still don't have time to write in detail but sure in future....

Hunting Asteroids..........
