Diwali time...

Goodness me - its been more than a month since I edited da blog - happened to notice it just today and tot i wasnt givin it enough justice... Of course there are lotsa reasons for the same - the work schedule is tight and demanding in these days - the project I am working on has turned 'fixed-price' (if u dont understand it - den fget it ;) )... sometimes when i look back and see at the bygone year, just working like dogs for the clients doesnt pay off - a person gotto be smarter in this new gen-IT industry - and make some smart moves to climb up the ladder - but such changes in the project progress - and mainly - getting stuck in a long term project is kind of a hindrance to one's career path...

In these turbulent days of work and god knows wat-wat - i feel its a relief to go home - yeah - its been 2 months since i went, so probably its time i took a break - although the decision still remains till the very last minute, in case the project takes a monstrous shape at the eleventh hour... :D - what prompted me to edit da blog today is the occasion for the trip back home - Diwali...

Some time back I read a short note on the significance of the same - 'Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya'... meaning 'Lead me away from the darkness and towards light' - the darkness signifying the negative aspect of life - sorrows, pains, jealousy, hatred etc - the light depicting purity, freedom, happiness, joy! - Gave me the thought that Diwali is indeed multi-faceted in terms of how it defines life... indeed if one gives a thought, the light can signify something different for each person in life... and so can the darkness... probably the effort to get away from the darkness is fulfilled only at the this bright festival - the darkness is also different for different entities in life - it may be different for a poor orphan, a farmer, a businessman, a salaried professional, a student, an organization, and even a country. One can very well deduce what is the height/variations of darkness in each of these cases - but the feeling of the darkness is unique pertaining to each of these, and can be best felt only individually.

The best part is that there is a continuous effort on the part of each of these entities to get ahead in life - not just to grope about in the darkness, but to dig out the tunnel to light, and dance with joy once its found - the light too forms a major part of life - probably Diwali - or Deepavali - the festival of lights signifies just that - to leave behind the darkness - and that its time to go ahead and witness whats in store for each one in the light of tomorrow...

A special one to all my friends who are working away from home... - Go ahead enjoy the holidays!!! :) :)

HAPPY DEEPAWALI !!

A very nicely laid out post.. we among ur close frnds always knew there's a lot of "philosphical creativity" (whatever on earth that means :) beneath your happy-go-lucky exterior. With this post, that creativity has been exposed to others too :)

There are too many points I really liked in the "Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya" and its next para.. so being the lazy bum that I am, i'm not going to take the trouble to point out each and every one of those points which i liked and agree with :P

anyways, lets just keep digging the tunnel towards light, with the faint glimmer in the form of hope egging on our sincere efforts. Kudos!
