iPhone was never intended to be a corporate smartphone like that of Blackberry devices.But the features supported and its popularity turned iPhone into a business-friendly device. Blackberry’s [RIM’s] new device “Bold 9000” is a deadly match with iPhone.Blackberry still remains email-king. iPhone’s email client needs to be more powerful.There are actually different audiences for both Blackberry and iPhone.

Both the phones are pretty cool !  😉

आज गुरुपौर्णिमा ,

त्या  निमित्ताने,माझ्या सर्व गुरूंना,आईबाबांना,सर्व मार्गदर्शक मित्रमैत्रिणी,सोबती यांना मनापासून अभिवादन आणि शुभेच्छा !

 

This reminds me my school & college days. Every year we used to celebrate GuruPornima and used to organise various activities like felicitation of teachers,speeches,elocution competition and so on. Being “headgirl” in school,I was always one of the organisers for such functions. Preparing for speech used to be a difficult task for me those days, I used to get tired reading and writing.

Few of my teachers used to give lotz & lotz of instructions : Tejaswini do this , do that , hehe…. olden days bring smiles!

Later,in college, we used to dressup in saree and goto teach juniors the subjects that we used to like. Instead of teaching I always arranged quizes and general talks in classrooms…Preparing for speech was again a duty for me in college also.

I remember my all teachers , right from nursery till end of my college days, sometimes I read my old autograph book (the one we used to get filled up on send off day from all teachers!) where teachers posted comments/best wishes for me…

But what I think is why only one day to remember your gurus ?   They should/must be remembered each and every day…what say?  🙂

The learning phase in life…is continued forever!

 अनंत तारा नक्षत्रे ही अनंत या गगनात
अनंत दीप्ती, अनंत वसुधा, हे शशिसूर्य अनंत.
वरती खाली सर्व साठले वातावरण अनंत,
माप कशाचे, कुणा मोजिता, सर्व अनंत अनंत।

कितेक मानव झटती, करिती हाडाचेही पाणी,
अनंत वसुधा आजवरी हो परी मोजली कोणी!
म्हणोत कोणी ‘आम्ही गणिला हा ग्रह- हा तारा,’
परंतु सांगा कुणी मोजिला हा सगळाच पसारा?

विशाल वरती गगन नव्हे, हे विश्वाचे कोठार,
उदात्ततेचा सागर हा, चिच्छांतीचा विस्तार.
कुणी मोजिला, कुणास त्याची लांबीरूंदी ठावी?
फार कशाला दिग्वनिंताची तरी कुणी सांगावी?

अनंत सारे विश्व जाहले अनंतात या लीन,
क्षुद्र मानवा, सांग कशाचा बाळगिसी अभिमान?
तव वैभव हे तुझे धनी ही, हे अत्युच्च महाल,
जातिल का गगनास भेदूनि? अनंत का होतील?

तुझ्या कीर्तिचे माप गड्या का काळाला मोजील!
ज्ञान तुझे तू म्हणशी ‘जाईल’, कोठवरी जाईल?
‘मी’ ‘माझे’ या वृथा कल्पना, तू कोणाचा कोण?
कितेक गेले मी मी म्हणता या चक्री चिरडून।

My 2 years old blog

July 12th 2006 … My first blog became 2 years , 2 days old … (Hehe)

I just began to write,stopped in between,restarted again…

The contents posted on my old blog took me 2 years back…how I got inspired to write a blog…

Old memories are always cheerful!

My post from my old blog , copy-pasted to this new blog :

Why Agnitej ?

 

AGNI : that is FIRE!

Agni” is a Sanskrit word,
Agni” is said to be the messenger from and to the other Gods,
Agni” is ever young,
Agni” is immortal!

There’s nothing in the world like “Agni”, so my blogs are titled “Agnitej”.

Yes, thats different thing that “Agnitej” is a part of my name itself !  🙂

मायेच्या हळव्या स्पर्शाने खुलते,
नात्यांच्या बंधात धुंद मोहरते
मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे, गूज पावसाचे,
का होते बेभान, कसे गहिवरते !आकाशी स्वप्नांच्या हरपून भान शिरते,
हुरहुरत्या सांजेला कधी एकटेच झुरते
सावरते, बावरते, घडते, अडखळते का पडते ?
कधी आशेच्या हिंदोळ्यावर मन हे वेडे झुलते
मन तरंग होऊन पाण्यावरती फिरते
अन्‌ क्षणात फिरुनी आभाळाला भिडते !
मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे, गूज पावसाचे,
का होते बेभान, कसे गहिवरते !

रुणझुणते, गुणगुणते, कधी गुंतते, हरवते,
कधी गहिऱ्या डोळ्यांच्या डोहात पार बुडते
तळमळते सारखे भाबडे नकळत का भरकटते ?
कधी मोहच्या चार क्षणांना मन हे वेडे भुलते !
जाणते जरी हे पुन्हा पुन्हा का चुकते ?
भाबडे तरी भासांच्या मागून पळते !
मन उधाण वाऱ्याचे, गूज पावसाचे,
का होते बेभान, कसे गहिवरते !

Got this quote under “Love Quote of the Day” section of Google.com

Just thought of sharing it on blogs

“I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame that heals our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other.”

The Zero

Following lines always inspire me:

” Om PurNamadah pUrNamidam
pUrNAt pUrNamudachyate
pUrNasya pUrNamAdAya
pUrNamevAvashiShyate
Om shAntih, shAntih, shAntihi ! “

“This is Whole.

 That is Whole.

 Whole emerges from Whole.

 Whole subtracted from Whole results in Whole.”

The notion of zero arises from the revolutions of the planets. It is the symbol of all the returns,all the cycles,all the rythems,that make existence possile. It also represents the limit between different orders of existence and the origin of manifestation; an instant when a thing does not yet exist and yet has already begun.

completeness alone remains

Trip to BhimaShankar

 

 

Recently, We friends had a one day rainy trip cum trek to BhimaShankar. It was like a kickoff trip for all further rainy trips.  😛

 

BhimaShankar , quite a famous place , 120  Kms away from Pune on the way to Manchar.

There is a beautiful temple of Lord Shiva which is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in India. The temple is under renovation these days.

 

History of Bhimashankar as in puranas is Lord Shiva killed Rakshasa Tripurasura. The heat generated from their war caused the origin of river Bhima. That is why it is called Bhimashankar.

 

A big size bell in Hemadpanthi structure built by Nana Phadanavis is also a feature of Bhimashankar.

Various places that could be visited in Bhimashankar are Hanuman Lake, Gupt Bhimashankar, Origin of River Bhima, Nag Phani, Bombay Point, Sakshi Vinayak and lot more.

 

We had planned to explore the way to Nag Phani (नाग फणी)….after crossing Hanuman lake , a road approaches towards Naag Phani through woods and rocks….

We found lots of young crowd approaching towards Nag Phani.

 

The way to Nag Phani was thrilling…as if you are in heaven…through clouds and deep forest.

Bhimashankar is also a well known animal sanctuary.

A small tekdi which you see near the valley has a structure like that of  “Nag Phana”….That’s why this place is named as “Naag Phani”.

 

After walking for 1 and half hours with few halts in between, we reached Naag Phani valley.The beauty of the valley view cannot be expressed in words….it was just heaven! Clouds were striking on a big mountain wall….and moving upwards….

We were totally in clouds…clouds …. We were feeling those….

 

We all friends had a blast there…played games, took out snaps, singing and dancing, explored jungle and as usual I was busy gathering different flowers and some different shaped leaves and all stuff like that.

 

It was raining all the way to Naag Phani….but when we reached the hill top, rain stopped and that’s why we were able to enjoy the beauty of nature.

 

Rain added more fun to our trek.

 

Whenever I used to find water I used to pull everyone in it to get wet!  Hehe … I luv that  😛

 

After spending 3 hours there, around 4 ‘O clock, one of the local resident told us to start moving downwards…It will be dark very soon…. The way was through deep forest…

 

None of us wanted to come back…It was heaven!

My photography was going all through the way…All were teasing me for that. Hehe…  🙂

 

On the way back we all were quite silent…don’t know why…No one wanted to come back in the city , silence was felt from inside!
