Columbus Day in U.S.


Did you know…

… that today, besides being Columbus Day in the U.S., is the birthday of Sigourney Weaver (1949)? Sigourney Weaver is an American actress best known for her role as Ellen Ripley in the Alien film series.

Trivia fans: Born Susan Alexandra Weaver, she began using the name “Sigourney Weaver” in 1963 after a minor character (Sigourney Howard) in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby.

Happy birthday, Sigourney!

Creativity. Random Phrases. My Day.


  1. Back To the Drawing Board Meaning: Starting over again on a new design from a previously failed attempt.  Restarting the Learning Process after a gap. I have found some interesting courses on Udemy about Startups, Funding, Angel investing and others of my interest. 
  2. Burst Your Bubble Meaning: To ruin someone’s happy moment.  Hmmm… some WhatsApps, some SMS, some emails.  do that regularly but I have cut short on all of them to a bare minimum i.e. Responding by a Namaste and rarely with a request to call if at all.  Mails as per Mail Track are averaging 3 per week and that gives me a lot of time to work on my 3 key goals. 
  3. Cry Over Spilt Milk Meaning: It’s useless to worry about things that  already happened and cannot be changed.  Yes this happens. It is true. And it is best to Let go of the past.  
  4. Happy as a Clam Meaning: The state of being happy; feeling delighted.  Preparing speeches, writing articles, keeps busy and happy.  Once the creativity juices are flowing there is no stopping of happiness – it just follows. 
  5. Fish Out Of Water Meaning: Someone being in a situation that they are unfamiliar or unsuited for.  I left a Club last week. I was feeling like a fish out of water as my worth was not respected, people were indulging in groupism and politics.  Best to keep off. 
  6. Quick On the Draw Meaning: Performing an action with the greatest of haste.  My habit of quickest possible withdrawal from situations where I notice personal egos dominating, politics stench starting to form.  I am quick to withdraw – call it draw or my way – with-draw 🙂
  7. Head Over Heels Meaning: Falling deeply in love with another person.  That time is past, those years are gone now. Even the memories are fading – and no use asking doctors for memory booster medicines to get them back as they come with mixed feelings. 
  8. Shot In the Dark Meaning: An attempt that has little chance for success.  No. Not taking unwanted, undue risks. That time is past. Now is time to be calm, quiet and face life and bid the time.  There are some up-ticks and they brighten the day and they are much needed relief. 
  9. Knuckle Down Meaning: Getting sincere about something; applying oneself seriously to a job.  Not job. My goals. Speaking learning, Writing, Learning and certification on Udemy online.  
  10. Fight Fire With Fire Meaning: To retaliate with an attack that is similar to the attack used against you.  My counter attack these days is more engulfed in calmness, composure and I speak quietly, eloquently, confidently and I am well grounded and centred.  

Sarva Pitri Amavasya – Prayer in English


Check the auspiciousness of any day & time

Praying for Mother:

Immortal Mother, my refuge and salvation, I come to you to confess my sins. I deserted you, I did not read your scriptures on the most holy day. Liberate me of my sins, absolve me of these demons. Pass your judgment so I may feel the warmth of your light once more.

Praying for Father

Eternal Father, redeemer of souls, I come before you to confess me sins. I was feeble-minded, I withheld part of the truth when asked for it. Purge me of sin, allow me to mend my ways. Pass judgment upon me so I may be rid of this guilt and live life afresh.

Today’s Inspirational Quote: Fountain of Youth?


“When you’re young, there’s so much that you can’t take in. It’s pouring over you like a waterfall. When you’re older, it’s less intense, but you’re able to reach out and drink it. I love being older.”

— Sigourney Weaver

Great Slogans – Verbosity


Better care, better life.
To the extreme.
Doing the impossible.
Bringing solutions.
Be the revolution.
Expanding horizons.
The time is now.
The next generation.
The sky’s not the limit.
A solid foundation.

What is your Motto?


Taste for battle.
Faith grants us strength.
For king and country we ride.
In god’s hand, in god’s grace.
Inextinguishable light.
The first, the last, the eternal.
Grow forever, never yield.
Here to stay.
From the grounds to the skies.
Health, peace, prosperity.

A friend


He is a friend who is never absent. 


He is a friend who waits forever, if necessary, for you to come home.

Capitalism


Capitalism

Free verse by jay

Because I could not argue for Capitalism,
it did kindly argue for me.
Capitalism, Capitalism, everywhere,
Yet not a penny to argue.
It does argue, it does advocate,
Should I also believe?

A globalism, however hard it tries,
Will always make Millionaires.
Does globalism send you shivers?
does it?

I cannot help but stop and look at the billionaire corporatism.
Does the corporatism make you shiver?
does it?

How happy is the cunning Localization!
Down, down, down into the darkness of the globalization,
Gently it goes – the sly, the slick, the cute.

The red liberalism sings like a turncoat
Does pseudo-liberalism make you shiver?
does it?

Because I could not advocate for Capitalism,
it did kindly advocate for me.
Pause to advocate, like the Capitalism does.
You can advocate, you can argue, but can you believe?

Questions to the Master


Question: Sometimes a person feels like asking many questions  to the Master. What does this indicate about his spiritual  preparation?


Answer: There are three stages of the disciple in Sufism. In the  first stage the Master draws the disciple to himself. This is the  stone stage. The disciple is enwrapped in deep ignorance and  has no sense for spiritual values. He can not know the Master  at this stone stage, and the initiative is entirely with the Master.


The second stage is called worm stage. Just as the worm is 

engaged in all kinds of movements and actions, so the mind 

of the disciple is active in all kinds of doubts and questions. 

At  this stage the disciple asks many questions to the Master. 

There is constant movement of thought at this worm stage.


The third stage is called the dog state. At this stage the mind 

has no questions to ask. It is in a faith state. Just as the dog 

follows the Master without challenge or doubt, the disciple has  unswerving faith in the Master, and follows his instructions  unfailingly.


At this stage asking comes to an end. When spiritual progress  has not yet begun as well as when it is at its height, there is no asking to the Master.

Be natural 


Be natural. If you are dishonest, do not try to hide yourself behind the curtain of honesty. That, however, does not mean that you should be dishonest. 


What I want to say is that you must be most natural than the least hypocritical.


Remain honest and do not compromise.

Digital Leadership Principles

“I don’t believe in accidents – only probabilities. I don’t think it is odd that Douglas Adams’ towel day is my birthday. I was his fan from the minute I started reading his books. Even before that, I dreamed of hitching a ride to the galaxy. Innovative leaders never let go of their dreams.”
