Deep Deep Diwali 

Visit : GharWaliDiwali

Diwali is most awaited festival  by me .
I love the essence of sweets being made at home .Sankarpada,shev,laddooo00OOO .. 
So how my diwali is celebrated. 
I help my mom in frying the sweets and making Chakali .Most of it finished while making :P .
I like light crackers not sound . So i get few flowerpots ,Sursuri,Rockets, . Just love when they light up . 
I have stopped lighting cracker long way back but i get some that bring light into our lives and brighten it. 


I like mud diyas ,not candle, I like the purity of mud diyas,oil and cotton wick. It's pleasant feeling to observe it lightening up .Let there be a dark room and place a diya , the soothing feel  ,the calmness ,the inspiration a diya can give cannot be compared. 
Odor of oil burning is also very pleasant . The yellow glow of diya. WoW. 



Then  i like rockets , love them when they go up in sky and spread the pleasant colors . The design they make ,creates a lasting impression on our mind . And admit it all love it. 
The rocket goess.. suiiiiiiiii...thakk..just love it. :) 








Then flowerpots are my favorite, When they light up it's awesome. White light ,color lights, golden sparkles  just wow. 

Diwali plans for this year , Well me going Pune to my family . We had some family crisis so we are not celebrating Diwali this year . It's ok next time.
This year it will only be Diyas and batis. Pooja at home .
I will enjoy watching firecracker,light limited number of Diyas. have quality family time . :)
That's what Diwali is for uniting family together :)

I very concerned about environment believe me but for this festival light Kids go ahead and grab some cracker ,it's just for a day :)

Manual of the Warrior of Light

-Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho is well known writer, I really love the theme of his books. It has certain essence to it,little bit mysticism ,spiritualism,knowledge and story. His writing style is as such that it hooks and mesmerizes the reader. You would want to believe his words ,stories even if they are fictitious. You can relate the stories to your lives and always find it useful in some way or the other.

This book is Collection of inspiring short passages .There are small phrases that are self explainable and along with description make it more meaningful .
"A warrior of light knows that he has much to be grateful for."  
" 'Thy will be done .' This is how warrior of light prays" 
 "The warrior of light recognizes the silence that precedes an important battle."

The book is full of such inspiring phrases Or instruction or guidelines. You chose what you want to call them .
The book is a Manual of the Warrior of the light . Who is warrior of light !?
The answer is in the book

When you finish the book you will be able to identify the warrior if light.  I did :)

This is not a novel nor a story,it's collection of short passages. You wont find any chapters or story-line
. It's just ...

Enjoy the book . I recommend it for everyone age no bar, : )
You will love it .

Happy reading. :)

Man's Search For Meaning

-Viktor E. Frankel

"He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how"
Well here's a book that you find rarely in hands of readers. Why!! well it's not a novel ,it's not fun story. It's a account of author life story . It's the story of his struggle in Nazi concentration camps. 
The struggle to live in most harsh situations ,living through the atrocities by Nazi soldiers and lot more. 
It may sound like this book is saddening  but it is meant to describe that how a man can still have that hope to live when people suicide to prevent their souls and suffering. 
We all are aware of Nazi camps stories , this is the person who lived and went through all these sufferings. 
After the account of his Nazi camps the author has written about his life after Nazi camps . 

Let me shed some light on story 
The author is narrating his story and events throughout the book. He describes his life before ,during and after Nazi camps . 
There are three chapters/sections of book 
1. Experiences in Concentration Camp &
2. Logotherapy in nutshell 
3. The case of Tragic Optimism .

Every section will teach you a lot. It's not study but is life study. You never know you may find your life-meaning too.

The great task for a person  is to find meaning in his or her life. Frankel( Author) saw three possible sources : 
  • Work( doing something significant),
  • in love (caring for another person) &
  • in courage in difficult times. 
Logotherapy : it is a meaning centered psychotherapy . More description i given in book .

Now don't be judgmental  this book .This book how people survived and how they sustained their will . So at least next time when you try to find meaning for your life or say that there's nothing left.You can always find a reason to live. 

Reading Advice : Only for People who are searching for meaning in their life,It's not novel and may seem boring for fun lovers .This is serious account of a Nazi Concentration Camp survivor. 
Discretion advised .

Very good Read :) .

Outliers

The story of success

-Malcolm Gladwell



I got liking of writing of Malcolm Gladwell after reading "Blink" ,then I read the "Tipping point "and now  "Outliers" .
This book is very inspiring book.Author  has showcased many examples of successful persons,companies and then tried to identify factors behind their success.
He gave very good examples why kids born in January are more successful in their chosen careers. 
And there is simple explanation , they are always months ahead than there peers in academic years. 
Most of the tournaments organized are schedules according to academic years. So sports,academics,arts anything January born kids have that extra months,time to themselves and they are that many months mature. 
It may sound very uncanny but if we think with cool mind .It may click us too. 
Then there are stories of businesses why some business thrived while others doomed. author has identified those points.
He has highlighted the power of 10,000 hour rule. Simple means if a person dedicates a minimum 10,000 hours in particular work,games or study he is expert or better than any other . 
For some the geographic location was right and for some the years were right. Geographic location we all know ,if raw material and selling market is near the producer is destined to succeed and regarding time,when the financial crisis hit some countries had huge losses but some countries profited. 
Things like this are contributing factors to all the successful companies,people 
He has identified silicon valley's most successful people and reasons behind their success. 
Bill Gates,Steve Jobs,Paul Allen,Steve Ballmer etc .. They are well known figures and everybody wants to know about their success. 
Read the book to know their secret from perspective of Malcolm Gladwell .Beleive me it's good analysis .You will love it.
