Nag nag ..uhu

Married life is tough. Ask my husband and he will nod and nod and nod. Yes..I am always asking him to do this and that..giving directions is my favorite. It makes me feel in control. I always ask him to turn off the ceiling fan whenever he wants to climb up to get something from the overhead storage space. he avoids my instruction and thinks it is absolutely silly to turn it off.
Last week, he climbed up and whush the fan edge touched his forehead and it was a cut. Blood was oozing , the domestic help were screaming and one of them knocked at my door. I came out and it was messy..quickly tried and stopped the blood. Made him lie down..he wanted to view the cut , got him a mirror and took him to hospital..the doctor stitched and bandaged..got medicines and returned home…all because ..he never listens to me..in this entire time..I kept on praying silently and assuring him nothing bad will happen..everything is under control..it is a slight cut..no worries.
I still worry..what he is up to now šŸ˜‰ men are really like kids..

Rural or Urban

Development is forĀ  progress . Land is part of the resources, used and abused for making life easy. This sometime gets commercialized to a level that land demarcation becomesĀ  difficult. How do we identify rural areas, basically with vast agricultural fields and water bodies. What if cities were to retainĀ  water bodies and develop land such that open spaces remains part of the city ?

This sounds very attractive, but a city must be efficient , the time to commute and deliver is important. hence, cities tend to be made with road network, connections and resources. The denser the business spot, the closer the connections and better the service.

What happens to rural areas or small towns , when neglected? it gets a decay feeling. First the physical condition, in terms of maintenance gets sloppy and slowly, the social vibeĀ  gets disrupted.

Yes. It is the social character that is responsible for the decay and not just the physical aspect of any rural land/ city. Rural land never can decay, for it is always in use, what can get demolished are the old structures , that were needed by the previous land lords but no longer needed by the people now investing in agriculture. Genetics science, has made production of cash crop more than before, so much so the field is never barren.

I think, the rural land is not facing any decay..in fact its value has increased manifold. The older cities are perhaps area for concern, as the previous architecture style and land development has no longer the value, in present market. Denser and higher structures are preferred to low density and old fashioned designs.

of course, architectural heritage is important , but a property revitalization in terms of cash is also a factor, that leads to quick change in urban morphology.

What can then be a solution. I think, a consensus must be found, with majority of population participation.People should be made aware and revitalized, of their heritage and then decide fate of cities.

The re-development or extension must be made as part of the dwellers and not just a top down instruction, where people are left out of the development scenario. This leads to alienation and sense of belonging vanishes.

The connection between inhabitants and land degenerates, and nothingĀ  touches the heart ofĀ  people.

Heart is where the pace is..this pace is for survival of the intelligent real estate investors..when they go for profit margins, there must be level..where they look into quality of space and rates of returns are not the only focus for the development.

We, must save our past from massive destruction, we may loose our heritage for present day high market returns..and in future this may lead to disconnected souls..they wander aimlessly..nothing belongs to them and they now don’t belong where they are originally from..is it not ironic.

 

 

 

Befriend your enemy..make him your friend ;)

Can you share laughter with someone who hates it..even when you smile ? Can you sit and talk with someone who gets irritated the moment you step inside his space..Can you enjoy a meal with those who wished you were dead..Can you befriend your enemies knowingly ..and for how long ? Will it not drain your energy..fill you with tension so much that you will explode..and get splattered all over the life..think again before you dive into the burning hell , called hatred of enemies .
Who are your enemies ? The group who is jealous, who is against your ideologies, your presence ..your participation..who loves to back bite about you..and want to see you fall dead..or get bruised and abused..
When I was asked this question by a remarkable blogger..I replied with a simple No šŸ˜‰
Yes..I was thinking about myself..not about those who hate me..my capacity is not that much I take in all sorts of garbage and still be able to smile.
But..will rescue you if you are drowning in the sea that got flames as high as mountains and deep as oceans..beware of misfortunes and enemies..you will not die in peace nor live with smile.Can you take a dip in ocean of hatred filled with invisible enemies?

Chris asked me find what makes me happy

DoesĀ  a box of chocolateĀ  makes me happy or gets me worried for gaining weight šŸ™‚

DoesĀ  a love song , that opens my heart..making me cry..bringĀ  smile to stay

Do friends messages, replies and acknowledgement I wit for days

Can I be happy on my own ?

I asked myself..what can make me happy ?

My inner voice, laughed and said .” I am Happy , as I can be..nothing to worry no agony..I got my wishes come true in life, those I want to reach out..all in good time..there is no hurry..the present life,is best as I can feel. My health is good, my faith intact, my income steady, I am free ..if I can not be happy now..don’t know when could I be šŸ˜‰ I must be thankful for living in peace..wars surround others near and far..I just want to die in peace.”
