End of term I and it has been really chilled out for the last couple of days. Life has been on a different scale for the last month and a half – Mid term to end term, assignment to submission, Pre-read to deadlines…. Well, all the while when time was a crunching factor, I could manage my day better and would take time out for my blog come what may. And now, there’s lots of time but….

For the last 3 days it has been a totally different world. For the first time in our MBA we had the luxury of an afternoon nap. N sleep means a lot here. And yes, 10 DS is O’some on Thursday night coz its karaoke night. Imagine a gang of close to 40 folks singing in the most murderous tones possible. We tired to be at our creative best. We do not believe in Plagiarism. We were so good at it that we were denied a second round of signing, All in all it was loads and loads and loads of fun !!!

Came across this brilliant piece of Swami Vivekananda and no wonder the world was swayed away by him and I am no exception…

Work through freedom! Work through Love! The word ‘love’ is very difficult to understand; love never comes until there is freedom. There is no true love possible in the slave. Every act of love brings happiness; there is no act of love which doesn’t bring peace and blessedness as its reaction. True love can never react so as to cause pain either to the lover or to the beloved. With love there is no painful reaction: love only brings a reaction of bliss; if it does not, it is not love; it is mistaking something else for love.

Wherever there is attachment, you must know that it is all physical, attraction between sets of particles of matter; something that attracts two bodies nearer and nearer all the time, and if they cannot get near enough, produces pain; but where there is real love, it does not rest on physical attachment at all. Such lovers may be a thousand miles away from one another, but their love will be all the same; it does not die, and will never produce and painful reaction.

If you can invariably take the position of a giver, in which everything given by you is a free offering to the world, without any thought of return……
