Nearer My God To Thee


When I saw the movie ‘Titanic’ for the first time in the theatre, one of the scores from the movie that caught my ears is the violin humming of the famous Christian prayer “Nearer my God, nearer to thee”.

I had been studying almost 90% of my educational years in Christian convents, schools and colleges. I have been through many prayers and enchanting. But none melted my heart as this has done. This very prayer along with its eternal musical composition mesmerizes me with the presence of God, no matter in what religion the God belongs.

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I’d be nearer, my God to Thee.

There let the way appear, steps unto Heav’n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I’ll fly,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

There in my Father’s home, safe and at rest,
There in my Savior’s love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

Amen

Car Thoughts


After long thoughts, My car dreams are coming true. I have been thinking of it for quite a long time. I have saved the space under consideration of budgets, and maintenance costs. But now, after I got the driving license, the urge went so high that, I decided on it. After a long market research and word of mouth, I have decided to buy A Star.

Not much buzz on the features. It well suits my budget and an array of features that comes along. For me, Its a small car for me and my family.

Living in a Happy Nation


The song from ‘Ace of Base’ do have a nostalgic attire. “Living in a Happy Nation” – What a dream. Though we have reasoned this subject for a long time and also do again, I would like to shout it out again.

Nation? A race of people sharing a common language or geographic. Let me drive a long long time. I have to believe that the scientific evolution of humans from monkeys in this regard since, the concept of Adam and Eve doesn’t fit much. If the first humans are Adam and Eve, then it must be supposed that all humans are their descendants. That means, all humans must be speaking the language what Adam and Eve used to, evolving from a single geographic point to all throughout the empty spaces on the planet. And of course, there will be one race of humans – humans itself.

But it isn’t the case here. Humans evolved in different parts of the planet at different times. Each of these groups used their evolving brains for discoveries and inventions that made life more better. This development of different thoughts , independent of each other led to the evolution of different languages, different cultures , different religions and as these groups grow, they came in contact with the other evolving groups. But at that time, the human brains weren’t evolved to the point to understand that the dark face opposite to them are also of their kind. The fear of differences led fight for survival.

That was beginning of drawing boundaries. Later, the evolution of human sense, led to proper understanding of their requirements and the availabilities on the other side of the line. Thus trade began. Even then, the left out animal nature in humans led him to conquer and grab the resources from the neighboring humans itself.

In the beginning, humans fought with nature and wilderness to ensure his survival. Using the wits and power of thinking, man did survive. But later, the same prowess, made him to fight to prove worth among humans itself, the early stage of war craft. we still fight to prove the dominance we have with respect to the other.

Right now,I believe humans are at the peak of cultural advancement. we all know that all that we need to survive is the survival of the human race. Its not the race, country , language or nationality. Its keeping the life on earth sustained as long as possible. For that, we need to erase the lines drawn in our minds. The separations has to be removed and feeling of one nation has to be imparted in our minds. No one can do it for us. One earth, one nation and different countries for the ease of welfare and administration. No budget for weapons and war. All for humans and all humans for earth. Then I will we are “Living in a Happy Nation”.

Missing you


Missing is the most awkward feeling I ever want to have. And I do have that now. It’s like a hollow heart, empty head and a sunken mind. I don’t have anything virtue to do and to think off. I just sit thinking about her.

When we get married and leaves with the wife, we never know how much space she takes around you. But she leaves the home for a day or two, it all comes to you like a terrific wave. Sweet memories begins to haunt and time stops ticking. It’s not just right without you.

I miss you sweetheart, My love.

Heart Locked


It’s been a while ever since I have updated my blog. And no weird reasons for the sake of explanation. I was gone, and now I am here. That’s the fact.How long I will be here, no answer. But fact is “I will always return, this is where I belong”. I just quoted on you ‘Adams’.

What had me off? Work, family, my passion to concentrate on Guitar more. Nothing seems so impressive enough to beat my long lasted fever to scribble down my heart. So, I am back here again, with my broken pieces of thoughts.

In two months, a lot of things changed around me. Finally, I am getting the pleasure of sitting behind the wheels and smoking the engine. I am just a week away from getting my official driving license.

IPL is at its full swing. And I find it hard and heart breaking to support any one team. All teams are so so good that I just sit in front of TV and support both the sides.Not to be left out, Sachin finally washing off the black scars that Saeed Anwar left on Indian Cricket Team years back. The first double century ever in one  Day Cricket is gonna say for a long long time. Hail Sachin !!

The past month also saw ‘Hurt Locker’ washing away the glory of ‘Navi’s’ with the bomb diffusing squad in Iraq. The manly emotions took over the fantasy world. I believe ‘Avatar’ deserved more for the hard work and the new era of I Max technology that Cameroon introduced to the film industry. As a movie point of view, I enjoyed Avatar twice in the Theater, but ‘Hurt Locker’ did stayed in my heart even after movie was over. The difference I feel is ‘Avatar’ movie stayed in my mind, but in ‘Hurt Locker’, the characters stayed.

I will be back to my blog often from now. Its been a long time and feels good , being in the company of words.
