Imperfection is perfection to a beautiful perspective.

Cleaning fish?

Yes, I was cleaning fish when my mind worked on fish in the sweet waters and sea. That was after a small trip I had to Ernakulam. On the way back we drove via the sea cost, passing through two rivers on the bridge. On the bridge were people fishing with hooks. The time was about 10 p.m. on that cloudy summer and bit sultry.

I generally sit on the balcony as I peel prawns (konju or Chemmeen). I saw ants carrying the shell. Ants are impressive, says Carlos Castro, a professor at Ohio State. “We made a conservative estimate that they might withstand 1,000 times their weight, and it actually is much more. While an ant carrying a huge leaf on top of its tiny frame provides sound analytical evidence that insects can carry weight far in excess of their own.  This is in comparison to nearly about 270 Kgms a human can lift.


WoW! I then tried to complete my cleaning work on fish.


Fishing for some is a hobby and for others a business. Those whom I saw fishing from those bridges sell their catch at nearby places like Feroke. Then my co-passenger pointed to the well lit fish market near Feroke as we alighted to see that delight.


Most of the fish on display for sale had the hook and thread in their mouths. As the fish seller cut the fish I saw him taking out a particular part and hooking it at a place. I asked what that was. He said that fishermen tie that part on the hook – a cycle of process that weaves the chain like the ants carrying the shell of the prawn. Nature and its wonders where human learn and apply.

Capabilities of individuals are learnt as skills. This coupled with natural talents add to human capacities. The limits and tolerances for each creature in nature are also different. Some complement as synergies.

Learning develops and when applied improves our performance.

My daughter Divya love to probe the past and apply it on future like younger daughter Megna. Both in one way or the other are teachers. Divya when she went for such a training session for her client base in London chose to break apart early morning with a cold surrounding the ambience to explore the fish market Billingsgate with her class mate who now run a restaurant there.

That’s amazing, fish in a verity, in colour and texture and shapes and sizes. The taste of-course as you know is also complex and superior. My friend’s son a chef now in Australia explores and prepares recipes at high end restaurants. He says value addition in his hands turns it expensive for customers.

The second process that I wondered was about the way the price tag goes up as the crabs gets to the restaurant tables in hotel chains. I buy the crabs from under the Elathur River bridge en-route to Kannur. It is good there and the price tag for a medium one could be anything around Rs. 45 to 50/- on not a pricy day. But as served in a high end restaurant in Australia that may cost many USDs.

Look at the way things change in our perspectives. The choices we make and the alternatives nature and man provide.

You can be right or wrong in someone else’s perspective. I wondered when I saw the ant carry the shell much higher than its own weight and the tiny part of fish going back to the fisherman to catch another fish on hooks. Never knew such things.

While adding value a transformation process takes place. It changes in context and in appreciation. Views from angles are varying for own eyes. We understand and misunderstand. Not knowing him /her also has an opinion to express and may be that is a different perspective. It is for us to keep an open eye a not so analytical and judgmental eye as we listen to appreciate another view point.

It is at those times I think of the kaleidoscope. Tilting to accept patterns that change that are varied and different. To think whether the next tilt will let you observe a better picture.

Megna likes mackerels and Divya Sardines. At home we buy both. Usha stopped eating crabs.

Imperfection is perfection to a beautiful perspective.

These days wives like Channel number 687 and husbands love Channel 9. A conflict begins on that. Look at the colours and styles of fish that live together. Some like it in a tartar sauce gravy and some bar-b-queue with a squeeze of lemon. I love fresh salad to accompany my fish with a bit of red wine vinegar and Darsh my grandson likes it with yogurt. The beauty is that Usha my wife prepares it to individual tastes at times.

Certainly it’s tolerances and acceptance that makes the music in our lives.

It probably is an open mind that matters. Those with that attitude do not impose their beliefs on others.  They accept all of life’s perspectives and realities and do their own thing to make peace of mind. Because tastes differ, interests differ.

Chose to have own paths. Those who see a path in front as a clear one probably are witnessing someone else’s path, not theirs.

Once again as I went to swab the portico I noticed a fly sitting on top of a left over prawn shell. That is different and that make up for the meal for the fly’s day. Everyone looks at things n different ways.

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective not a truth” – Marcus Aurelius.

MUSIC in our lives …

It was an evening where an audience without age barriers christened at the Calicut Town Hall. Lovely is the minimum that many expressed who watched the program from an overcrowded hall. Sure that was. Nostalgic melodies of Latha Mankeshkar and the rich voice of Mohammed Rafi were reverberating, sung by the two stalwarts in music – Rahamath and Firoz. The song presenter recollected the music of late 1950’s to the audiences. Years gone by; but shelf life of those songs has not perished.

I was watching that Sunday noon show on Television where latest movie on Dhoni was shown on StarPlus. Compare the epics of yesteryears in cinema and that of the recent ones. The movie is produced to cross the magic numbers of 100 and 200 crores and soon thereafter we forget about the movie.

What gets registered is stored as memoirs. We are flooded with a huge amount of alternatives and choices. Cell phone that costs a lot is replaced once a new brand comes up. Apps and Appo’s provide a variety beyond practical needs but we dispose off and life of the costly apparatus becomes redundant. Shelves in the show rooms get a refill, with more modern equipments.

That probably is due to a fact that our mind’s IN BOX is crowded with thoughts that clutter. We have in store more than what we can chew. This was not the case some years back. Number of e-mails, Whats App messages and Likes on Face Book are accountable for the crowded transaction of thoughts that obstruct a leaner positive chain of thoughts. That of course reduces the shelf life of our thoughts and thus our positive action. We then have an issue of time created by our mindset. That time we lose does not nourish quality time. We lose relationships. We cannot even relax.

We need to think what we do? Why we do? And when we do? – Otherwise we miss and end up in losing some good friends.

It is said that our body is the servant of our mind. Undesirable thoughts that invade constantly in our minds put our body into sicknesses created by mental and physical tension. And we succumb to deceases and wild pressures including monitory issues. The delicate body tissues surrender to the penchant bad thoughts and become ill. We see street urchins playful, and rich ones with tough exteriors.

Bring peace within yourself by avoiding jealousy, ill-will, judgment, comparison, evaluation, criticism, doubt and cynicism, suspicion and envy. It’s we who create peace within us.

When we are happy and positioned with love and forgiveness we tend to be happier and smiling at issues that once we felt were un-surmountable.  Forget and forgive and use the dust bin in your mind and brain, to re-invent spaces where slowly good things tend to flourish. “Understand the flaws to appreciate the perfection of the Universe” – Ka Chinery.

As me and my wife listened to the music that eve, the song had a silent sequence of a few milliseconds. That was a dip in the rhythm, a split second of solitude in isolation. I thought then we need to listen and be silent more than we speak. Pythagorus wrote: “Learn to be silent. Let your quieter mind listen and absorb”.

Silence settles our mind. That allows us to think what we are thinking. But most of us do multi-tasking, loosing focus and attention. We drive and we speak on phone at the same time. We risk our lives and we reduce the shelf life of others in accidents.

As the cell phones need re-charge our minds do need a re-charge of re-vitalizing doses of happiness. We have given away the power to control our mind. It was one of my friends who said – I will chose to pick the phone and the caller cannot enter and interrupt my flow of transactions and thoughts. Surely I will respond to the call.

Innumerable SMS, BBM, WhatsApp, IMO call tunes, and the times we enjoy in LIKEs on Face Book columns distract and enter our solitude and privacy. We allow the world – professional, social and digital space influence the way we live and interact.

I think we need to reflect and live. Live the way we want to live. Not the way others want our lives to be defined.

It’s then when music to the ears becomes soothing. It’s then when we tend to listen to the tunes, the flimsy voices of birds and start thinking that our lives with limited shelf life need to be enjoyed.




Fear of the unknown

2016, we are almost close to changing the calendar. In front of us lie 365 days of uncertainty. I looked into the fear of unknown that hangs in some of our minds, on how the year is or going to be. After all this moment is a dot in the straight line of what unfolded and the next split second is an extension on the same straight line.

Steve job at the age of 20 started a company with two people at his parent’s garage and became a two billion dollar company in ten years. S he was fired he started new ventures NEXT and PIXAR. Steve was back. Rest is history. Heaviness of success he said replaced the lightness of the beginner in him.

In his last words before he succumbed he said: “Aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life. At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth: Perhaps relationships, art, and a dream from younger days. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. The wealth I have I cannot take. What I can is only memories precipitated by love. That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.”

Does it ring a bell in your mind?

Fear is within the human existence. It’s part of us. But in this context of the variety of fears what we confront is the risk of failure. We are afraid to try because we expect failure. However, if we reduce the cost of attempt, by experimenting, we reduce the cost of failure. Remember, every experiment has a perspective. The value of the opportunity if we succeed – the value of the people or situations we meet in the experiment and the exit value, value of the knowledge one gain in the process that may be applied elsewhere. Failures make us learn and add value to our asset – Knowledge.

“We do NOT fear the unknown, we fear what we think we know of the unknown” – Teal Swan.  We give meanings for the unknown. It is better to fall in love with uncertainty and be with it. Resist the fear of uncertainty and we lose all what we have. When we are born we are endorsed with what we call love. But as we progress we learn and mature with fear. Unlearning fear and relearning love in abundance is the transformation Steve spoke about.

Concern and curiosity provide us with answers that charge our minds with courage. Handle fear of unknown. Worrying actually reduces our capability to take decisions provided by uncertainty. It impairs judgments. As we are closer to the new 2017, let us open up our minds without fear and with courage based on decisive actions to deal with those unknown to us.

Isn’t our expectation and desires that takes us forward. Gaps between those and real are stressed situations. Handling uncertain moments is easy if our expectations are positive, that propel inner magnetic vibrations reflect energy. Ambition should be based on ability to do the best every moment.

Imagination is innovative. Visualize the best to happen. Let the mind and heart get thrilled with the elixir of imagination. Then we can resolve jigsaw puzzles of uncertainty and create a map for progress as we pass through 2017. Falling is easy getting up tougher. Wake up, bless and love and share what we can, as nothing belongs to us. Trust instincts; faith brings miracles.

It is unpredictability that provides options. Difficult times produce better results as we innovate and think better. It is a happy year ahead.

Be aware. Be blessed. Enjoy the new year – 2017.

One Night STAND; a future shock!

word Press - ONS

Actually I stood up from my bed at about 12.30 a.m. like when the word Eureka was coined in history.

It’s about IDEAS that change the world we live. Long ago I wrote a blog when I read in news about the government banning the good old bullock carts plying on the modern roads. That was about the past and now I am dwelled in thought on the future – unseen, but imagined.

I lived when bullock carts and horse driven carriages were on the streets of Calicut, Kerala. So I thought I may not be able to imagine what is in store for us. My second daughter sent me a text on my Whats App that night and all that triggered made me stand up that night.

I went to the wash room and seeing the soap in a tube remembered the good old “Hama am” and “Lux” soaps and some of the old brands like Scissors in cigarettes. When I passed SSLC, I spent two hours daily at a type writing institute, but where is that item? Only the location of the alphabets has not changed in the cell phone. I worked for a company whose organizational Logo and Name changed many times in acquisitions. Old is sold!

Look at Kodak, in 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. In a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt. Like KODAK many companies would close down in the next few years. Did we think in 1998 that 3 years later we would never take pictures on paper film again? We are in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the Exponential Age.

Computers become exponentially better in understanding the way we want to be doing things in future. Facebook now have a “Pattern recognition software” that can recognize faces better than humans. Already computers are more intelligent than humans. These only help us chose and not help us decide.
Software will rotate 360 degrees in design and can see future into a virtual reality.

Uber is just a software tool, and are the biggest taxi company in the world. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

In 2018 the first self driving cars is expected in market place. Automobiles will change the way we see now. . You may not own a car anymore. You will make a call on your cell and a car will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and will be driver-less. Our kids need not go and test drive for a driving license. Pollution will come down when we reduce use of cars now in cities. We transform parking space into parks. Imagine about 1.2 million people die each year in traffic accidents worldwide. Driver-less cars along with Uber like companies can save a million lives each year.
Tesla- Apple- Google shall revolutionise changes and build a computer on wheels. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100 times cheaper. Their Car insurance business model will …?

“Work from home” scenario is already spreading fast. Location is not an issue. And so Real estate prices will crumble. If your home is workplace then people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood. You do not shop in stores, stores deliver at home.

Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only now see the impact. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. The price for solar will drop so much that all coal companies will be out of business by 2025.Saudi Arabia’s new economic ideas have already shifted from fossil fuel based economy. Price per barrel of crude oil is to be seen. When solar power comes cheap and desalination cost will be down scarcity of water in most places will not be there. One can have as much clean water as he wants.

Agricultural robots will run our paddy fields and no more bullock wielding farmers. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces are ploughed by cows. There are several startups that will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as “alternative protein source”. I have heard that china imports chicken wastes and other animal wastes to produce alternate proteins.

There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you are. Soon there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions if you are lying, and that will trigger relationship issues like love affairs and one night stands! The mood will be “CLEARER” with those Apps.

Life span has improved over a period of time. From now on with medical diagnosis with tests from your breath and not from your blood will reduce cost of diagnosis. Medication costs will also come down as changed life styles without stress begin to appear. Thus life span increases by 3 months per year. Life span around 70-75 years increase itself and by 2036, there will be an increase of one year per year. Then nostalgia will talk about historical memories of more than 90 years, when people speak. Stories will overwhelmingly rotate and change.
Because wrongs can be seen as right, and tomorrow’s concepts will change the way we look at things, the scenario will definitely be unthinkable as of now.

Change is everything, they say – and when I stood up that night, I really understood the way things are going to change. ROBOT s without feelings and emotions, will be “next-Gen” children?

As in that era there will not be any patent registrations, with the speed of changes, when I said “eureka” – as I stood up, I was crystal clear, that I was not dreaming.

Butterflies …

B Flies - 4 BlogTexas Annual Exhibition is where my daughter Divya had a second look at the little wonder – butterflies. She gifted us with a frame of butterflies. I wondered about this lovely creature God gifted to nature.

Lifespan of a butterfly depends on many things from two weeks to 30 days! Butterflies have inhabited our planet for 130 million years. Before a butterfly can flap its wings, it starts out as something completely different and transforms itself through four stages. Caterpillar after hatching from an egg has its first meal – the egg shell itself. Caterpillars molt several times and outgrow their exoskeleton. They lay hundreds of eggs but only a few survive. When a butterfly emerges from a chrysalis its wings are crumpled. It hangs with its wings down and pumps the wings with fluids to straighten them out – wait several hours for wings to harden and dry before flying away. How beautiful are they?

They see ultraviolet colors, invisible to our eyes and can see flowers. They cannot hear, but feel vibration and have a sense of smell. They communicate with each other by color, chemicals and sound. Color patterns signal along with a chemical pheromone to attract opposite sex. Clicking sounds attract ants that in turn protect them. They use support systems and methods for survival. The 12,000 different species of butterflies play a silent part in pollinating the earth’s plant population as part of food chain.

Divya bought our gift from a Peruvian Store. Peru hosts 20% of world population of butterflies. These are farm raised with an idea of conservation and helps local people to earn a living. Butterflies are allowed to live their natural life cycle and allowed to die. These are dissected, preserved for years to please our eyes as well to learn in retrospect.

Lessons learnt:

  • Survival is an instinct that we need to practice on a continuous basis.
  • With a short life span butterflies does pollination. Will Smith quote – “Life isn’t how many breaths you take, but it’s the moments that take your breath away” – Do what is IMPOSSIBLE.
  • Growth is NOT easy. Work for it.
  • Help each other – Like butterflies and ants.
  • Use the resources God gifted us – to be different.
  • Learn till you live – no shelf life for knowledge. As human beings we need to appreciate our sensory capabilities and intellect. We can be butterflies.

In a flight in search … (Happiness …)

Recently I changed my Facebook cover photo from that of my grandson’s picture to a bird and captioned it with “In a flight in search …” and found a thread in that very line to write this.

Some links connect to my grandson and toys he has in plenty. When we returned from his home to Calicut, my wife carried a few toys in her baggage and presented those to Sumitha who has two sons who come with her to our building to play around.

That moment when the toys were handed over to them the youngster said – “there are cars in this bundle that can run faster than those on roads!” – The joy on their faces was too much to believe as we felt nothing beyond parting away with something that was in surplus. Watching the joy made my mind at work to seek what I am trying to probe – happiness is?

Sumitha told me that her kids kept those toys near their pillows as they slept that night.

I saw one of them playing with the car the next day. And after a while it fell from the steps and broke. The elder one came in and was upset. “What will you tell our neighbors and friends when they see your car is damaged?” – Elder one quelled.

“I will tell them that another aunty will give me a surprise gift and a more colorful faster moving toy car, and will fix this broken piece with rice glue”. The best glue that he saw so far is rice paste. Both went on to have their own games that evening.

I often found the concept of SHARE as a meaningful purpose in my early life, probably instilled as a value for values by my mother who never went beyond secondary school in her education. The meaning of some stories she told us still revisit in mind. At times the thoughts help an imaginary flight in search to find true meaning of concepts and how and to apply those in lives.

We used to exchange old clothes in return for vessels through vendors who arrive at our door steps. Then we switched to handing old clothes over to child homes. Of late we thought to give it off to the needy and not greedy. It meant we witness the joy of receiving from moments of SHARE.

Along with those old clothes passed on to a needy family who took those with gratitude was a shirt embossed with name of one of the US Companies I worked. A nice white full sleeved one. Having forgotten the name “Wittemaan” I got fused to the logo as I sat at a function and noticed an elderly person wearing the same shirt was sitting in front of me.

I was overwhelmed on the fact of recycling more closely as me and another member of CMA, went to Bengaluru to study the process of recycling waste into electricity as researched by the Indian Institute of Science. Possibilities exist.  My nephew who studied automobile engineering in Germany informed me of the various possibilities of re-conversion of wasteful spent of the car like heat, sound etc. in to useful energy by conversion.

The joy of receiving the toy, keeping those near their pillows kept me thinking of the concept of SHARE.

Only the other day I asked him what he did with the broken car. He said the rice glue did not help to make up the break. But he said his brother who was upset seeing his broken car was temporarily happy and slowly forgot of the sad feeling.

It’s written that “falling is not the most important thing, it’s how fast you get up and walk” that is important.

Rati from Worli, Mumbai who is crippled for her life and a best friend of mine, recently sent me a What Sapp message reading as under:-

{Walking is the best exercise – “walk away” from arguments that lead you to nowhere but anger, “walk away” from people who deliberately put you down, “walk away” from thoughts reduces your worth, “walk away” from failures and fears that block your dreams, the more you “walk away” from things that poison your soul, the happier your life would be – walk towards happiness!}

In search of happiness is what the flight of the bird indicated. Thank you Rati, even though I know you cannot walk forward, your “forward” to me was of great input and a SHARED thought for me to appreciate what happiness is?

I met the same youngster the other day and enquired whether the other aunty gave him the surprise gift?

“It’s yet to come, delayed, but for sure!”

He was actually dreaming that the best is yet to arrive in his life. He probably wanted all his friends also believe that damage or failures make no difference to dream realization. He in that process set up an array of positive thoughts including neighbors that “lost is lost” and many things are there that can be created or achieved including realizing dreams.

We chase happiness by buying costly things and apparels to create an image to project the not so of ourselves, and to wear masks.

Look at the boy and the elder person who put up an image of not on borrowed bargains but of self-worth knowing well “who I am”. Contented are they.

Difficulties or fear dampen path to happiness, but with an attitude to win over the hearts of self and those of others, they tend to live in the moment – where truth exists.

Nothing is STATIC; nothing PERMANENT

It was a down pour with thunder and lightning as unexpected in an evening, early November. I watched the street lights and vehicular traffic from the window pane, enjoying the clouds above and lightning with deafening sound of thunder. Pouring it was from the heavens above and as I watched with passing light beams that fell on the road, steamed vapours were moving up as the rain drops hit the hot road surface. It made me think – it’s about a cycle, water vapor moves up, form clouds and comes down again – like the life cycle we undergo. Nothing is static or permanent – it is part of the cycle with ups and downs.

We have changed and some of us change fast. The question is about the change in the environment we live in with a drive that’s made possible by technology where the reach is immeasurable, advantages overweighing imaginative umbrellas that used to bind us earlier.

In this context Sikka, CEO of Infosys made a statement recently – “Seeing is believing” need to change to “believing is seeing”.

With so much change, people and organizations must adapt, learn and become comfortable with change. It is this competency to adapt and manage change that is needed. It may seem difficult due to barriers in culture, structure and routine ways of looking at things impacting the past that reflect resistance to change.

Technology motivates innovations that outpace our internal moves. We see often than not old brands becoming obsolete replaced with new ones in the market place. People who adapt fast create a competitive advantage, while people who refuse to change are left behind. Belief in self is a criterion to change.

The importance of readiness to adapt is a consent that precedes management of change. While culture issues can influence as barriers to change can also support change.  The world over culture has transformed and changed. There is no such thing as a perfect culture.

According to Oettingen: – We need more than just the dream; we need “mental contrasting,” by which we visualize obstacles that stand in the way of achieving it. Naming the hurdles, she says, helps us to find a way over them.

The vast potential received as gift when we are born need to be utilized. Zig Ziglair says – when you catch a glimpse of your potential, passion is born. It is wisdom to know others; it is enlightenment to know one’s self – Lao-Tzu. Magic is to believe in us and make smart moves.

The topic of discussion is – “Nothing is static; nothing permanent” and it’s nice to have this story.

A management consultant, on holiday in a Kerala fishing village, watched a little fishing boat dock on the shore. Noting the quality of the fish, the consultant asked the fisherman how long it had taken to catch fish.

“Not very long.” answered the fisherman, close to Kovalam.

“Then, why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?

The fisherman said that his catch was sufficient to meet needs and expenses of his family.

“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

“I sleep till I wake up, fish a little, play with my children have an afternoon’s nap under a coconut tree. In the evenings, I go into the nearby gathering to see friends, have “kallu” (country liquor), and sing a few songs….. I have a full and happy life”.

The consultant thought to advice – “I can help you…… You should start by fishing longer and sell extra fish you catch. With that extra, you buy a bigger boat. With that extra buy a larger boat, a second one and a third one and so on until you have a large fleet. Instead of selling your fish to a middleman, you can negotiate directly with big buyers and maybe open your own process plant and start export. You can then leave this place move to a city or maybe even to some other country, and you become a millionaire”

“How long would that take?”

“Oh, ten, maybe twenty years.”

“And after that?”

“And after that? That’s when it gets really interesting,” answered the consultant, laughing, “When your business gets really huge, you start selling shares in your company and make millions!”

“And after that?”

“After that you’ll be able to retire, move out to a small island, sleep in late every day, spend time with your family, go fishing, take afternoon naps under a coconut tree, and spend relaxing evenings having drinks with friends…”

“That’s what I am doing right now” said the fisherman and went his way.

The moral of this story is in a rush, that supersede own interests, to match the speed of changes it’s passion that ignite us to live realizing  values of our interests and ideals and have a “FEEL GOOD FACTOR”  that we cannot buy.

Our mind goes through over 50,000 thoughts in a day – and a large part of these thoughts have a negative connotation. This is the area that we should discard and work on the area of influence. That filters and reduces the ups and downs of the thoughts.

Believe in yourself and trust the Universe by letting go of our incessant desire to control all our outcomes is possible by trusting the Universe and its evolution.

Trusting the universe and accepting what happens helps us to reduce the peaks and troughs of our concerns that bring in an experience of peace.

Clouds will turn into rain and rise again, anyway.

Everything changes ...
