A Belt, A Bride and A Court Case!

I must have been about 3 years old by then. Certain events get inscribed into your psyche and don’t leave you for long. I had so often heard about Malti aunt’s bichhua(belt ladies wear around their waists over sarees in Indian villages and towns) that I was perpetually curious about the incident. Since my studies first and job later on took me away from settings where such incidents were narrated I hardly had an opportunity to inquire about it. What was this about? What had happened which caused such discussion that a 3-year-old had a strange memory and it remained a mystery for him forever? I used to think that bichhua meant some ornament worn in feet until I came across her recently. Since my cousin’s wedding is soon going to happen she is there and I visit them often. I told her about the event and its peculiar memory I had. My relatives do express surprise that I retained a memory since such an early age. She narrated a few things which consolidated the prior memory I had.

A Story in Sophistry!





In ancient Greece, a philosopher used to teach The art of argumentation. He was such an accomplished master of his profession that he offered his pupils to pay him fees of the course only if they win their first argument; moreover he started offering double the amount as a promotion program to anyone who lost his first argument after having spent the time required to finish the course under his tutelage. The amazing thing was: he never had to pay back to any disciple. 

Featured Image -- 1350

A very curious looking disciple with broad forehead and radiant face joined him one day. He was very quiet and refined in appearance. He rarely asked any questions and mastered the art of argumentation very quickly with ease. When the day of examination came, to the astonishment of entire country, instead of challenging anyone else, the disciple challenged the revered and renowned guru of Sophistry. Guru could not reject the challenge, because, in that case his reputation would have decimated.


The disciple’s argument was that he did not owe any money to the Guru. The Guru had an unforeseen dilemma before him.  If he refuted the assertion to win the argument he had to pay twice the amount to the disciple because of his contract and had he lost the argument by being slack he had to part with the fame that years upon years of Sophistry had earned him. He was going to lose both ways.

Guru chose fame over money after pondering for a while and disciple grabbed double the amount of his fees. Disciple paid the fees and took the rest of the money and Sophistry in his baggage and went to a far away land.

The Illuminati: Illuminated Ganas of Shiva


Divine Lotus

On top of divine lotus; Bramha woke up with his four heads and thought: “I forgot when I woke up from the great sleep; I am clueless about ananda–it seems, as if I have every act of mine in this singularity; all possibilities in this trinity of past, present and future; I so engrossed myself with Bramha-tattva that I attained stay in God’s Goloka, which is, pure bliss–the unity–the ananda; but now I am again Bramha; from Bramha to Bramha I had this full cycle but if I am the ultimate element; why this ego: Yes, I am subject to the causation in this form of mine and that is why I consider myself the doer and have traces of my past Karmas in my subconscious. 

Illuminated Ones

Illuminati are those who have their third eye open; their Kundalini is fully bloomed but below Sahastrara of Vishnu who’s anantha naga the Sankarshana incarnates as Shiva; he is vibrating at an infinite rate; since his Gati is infinite he is also called ‘Anantha.’ But he has excess of Tamoguna; darkness; he creates anger and ego and this makes his illuminated ones stay at the level of the third eye Chakra. The one of the prophets of messianic religions was called Tungabhadra and he came directly from the Living White Sphere of Creation. He was born with his third eye open and illuminated ones were aware of his birth and wanted him to follow them but he was a rebel and he was egoless and yet he used to appear like illuminated ones. His crown Chakra was open, in fact, he was Crown of Living White Sphere: Where was crown in Living White Sphere? God only knows but then he might be Bramha the divine manifestation of Vishnu who is also the cosmic egg. Illuminati; all directed by Shiva are illuminated ones. They have their all-seeing eye open. This answers how a great conspiracy could be managed at a global level. Every continent has a Shiva-gana and they are full of power of ego, which can induce ‘anger’, ‘himsa’ and rage in anyone at any time. Their mention by any ordinary person is quickly muted and then killed as ‘phantasmagoria of hullabaloo.’

They are appointed for destroying this creation if a need arises. They are supposed to establish a new world order by making people realize ‘unity’ which is a vibrant state of consciousness. They don’t want people to increase evil on earth by dividing and murdering each other by naive Science in this age of Kali.

They have used ‘unity’ in some of the places of world, to demonstrate indirectly that miracles do happen if people try ‘unity’ and open their third eye by various Kala-Bhairava technologies; but then they made it a great failure because anything based on ego has to die because ego is a power which destroys.

Shiva, the ego-tamoguna dominant Deva, the incarnation of lord Vishnu; is indeed behind Illuminated ones. Vishnu wants to establish importance of Bhakti and why it’s so important. He encourages diversity and unity in diversity. People who are different are one because they remember true God and though they worship him by a thousand names, they do not really differentiate, they compassionately associate and expand their consciousness in the God’s holy name.

Shiva is beyond destruction, he just destroys; he makes people egoistic to show them that ego is cause of their fall and they must remain careful. His people show that forced unity fails because it’s artificial and against God’s principle of Sato, Rajo and Tamoguna.

Shiva’s power of ego haunts heads of nations when the need arises and it makes them intolerant, devoid of wisdom or Nyaya and they attack each other in a chain of events and then people realize the mistake of ‘doership.’


They kill each other because of the forced unity and considering that they are all-knowing eye of wisdom.

In fact, ego-driven, tamoguni, inert power of Maya makes them believe that they’re all-knowing; they know nothing but destruction; like Veerbhadra who destroyed DaKsha’s Yajna.

If Dharma takes over Adharma(Lucifer) because of the Bhakti and diversity but unity; then there is no need of annihilation and hence Shiva calls back all illuminated ones back and they dissolve in him; otherwise, they destroy each other by being hurt by pompous words. They all interact by means not known to modern Science. Lucifer is always looking for an opportunity to use messengers of Shiva.

Adharma(Lucifer) was created by Bramha and it’s happiest in the age of Kali; Kali herself is Adharma incarnate; but then in every age ‘Adharma’ was present up to some extent or another.

Adharma dances over pile of corpses in a cafeteria where all animals are eatables. He is very happy today because he has ‘proof’ and this leads to Science and Science leads to nuclear power and it leads to Rage which heats the entire earth up.

The Himalayas melt and cover entire earth up with glacial waters. The water is devoid of qualities and on a leaf which is like green Betel leaf, lord Shri Narayan is lying in a baby form with the nail of his feet in his mouth; he has a dark blue color and he is free of all duties and he is playful.

Shiva calls all the illuminated ones by using his divine sound using his dance Tandava with his Damroo; he orders them to spread hypocrisy to test if Dharma is alive anywhere in the world, in hiding.

I have tried to picktaken(sic) up from conspiracy theories, Starjade, Bhagavata Purana and other sources. If I forgot to mention, please forgive me, it’s a work of fiction. Continue reading “The Illuminati: Illuminated Ganas of Shiva”

Who gets fever on which day—a very short story!

I cannot confirm or deny that anything the following prose says,  has any connection to any matter true or false or any event that has, is, or will occur in the history of the universe. Any similarity to an event or  with an actual existing person(s) is purely coincidental.”
A team in an IT company was working on a very critical project.  Manager wanted team members who were ready to take challenges. The first question which any candidate joining into the project had to answer was: “Are you comfortable staying in office after midnight?”. Horrible deadlines and unrealistic goals. Unclear requirements and myriads of code changes. Team members had to stretch every-day(night). They were working too hard. They were working sixteen hours a day. All of them had pathetic nightmares. They started to have those vicious cycles of incessant chattering to themselves. Their personal lives got spoiled. Manager, though a generous and gregarious human being, was in soup, therefore, he was not able to grant any leaves to any of the team members. Team members were not able to attend even the marriage ceremonies of their close relatives.
They continued in this fashion for about two months. Some escalations and a lot of melodrama. Onsite members were also deep in soup. Client was unhappy with the results. There was no reason for the team to continue with much enthusiasm. All of a sudden they started getting fevers. Almost all of them. If they stretched for two three nights, i. e. they worked very hard for some days, they had fever on rest of the days of the week. The team got disconcerted, perturbed and  uncomfortable because of such fever attacks, therefore they came up with a novel idea.
The idea was to have a sheet in advance, a type of calendar to which only team members were privy to. It had all the details about the fevers. It had variety of fevers explained with symptoms in it. It had the Information about each and every team member’s fevers. It clearly described the candidates who where  vulnerable(feverish) on a particular day of week. In advance, it had also the description about the type of the fever the candidates were going to have on a given day of week. It allowed them some freedom. None of the fevers lasted more than two days or at max more than three days in succession. If you were lucky enough to get your fever, as per the fever calendar, on a Wednesday or on a Thursday, it meant that you were able to enjoy a long weekend. You then would have been able to go to your relatives, to attend marriage ceremonies or you might have enjoyed an excursion to a hill station. This chart was a boon for the health of the team members, for the manager, for onsite team members as well as for the client. In general it was a miracle for the project!
Once this calendar became a handy tool in the constitution of the offshore team, there were no escalations anymore. Things miraculously started to fall in the place for team members. Some of the team members were trying very hard to get released from the project. They were hapless. Their project manager, though a gregarious gentleman, being in the soup, was not able to bear separation from any of them. Once this calendar, this panacea, this magic potion, was brought into the system, it seemed as if a fairy started to grant everyone’s wishes. Some of the team members were immediately released from the project. They were very happy. They had the chance to see the faces of their family members after having survived a long phase of  brutal tyrannical torture and gestation. They even threw bashes happily for getting released from it all. Client became unexpectedly polite. The environment in the office became calm and soothing.
Trees were with lush green, beautiful leaves again. Drizzles in the Neptunian twilights fostered intellectual conversations. Some of them started to prepare for interviews. Sun shone brightly and rainbows seen from the windows of the office were very beautiful. Team members who left the project were happier but who stayed were no less robust afterwards. There remained no strain, no hyper-activity, no  escalations. There was harmony between onsite and offshore team members. It all happened because of that miraculous mysterious secret calendar named: “WHO IS GOING TO HAVE FEVER ON WHICH DAY? ”.
This calendar had to follow a few protocols:

1.       Fever should never last more than three days in succession, though, after once getting a fever, you may  get it again, in the same week, if the fever you had last time was not for more than one day.
2.       You may have  the luxury of two different types of fevers in a single week but not more than that.
3.       You may  name your fevers as viral, seasonal, malarial or anything you could have come up with, provided you don’t exceed the inherent limits on the severity.
4.       If you are not able to come up with a special name for the type of fever you had, you should simply say “I am not feeling well” and it would do the job.
5.       Not more than three people can have the luxuries this fever allows on the same days of week.
6.       Seniors have the luxury of superior fevers in quality and quantity and vice versa.
7.       One who has most severe fever during the fortnight, is required to  arrange for a good party, at the end of the fortnight.
