Life is a Accountancy

Life is full of ups and downs with many transition periods in between, economist say life is like the product life cycle. There is continuous change in ones lifestyle and living habits with respect to the state of mind. Even in our daily life we experience various state of mind as day proceeds, sometime somber, sometime sublime.

Nevertheless we are all concerned about our duty, duty towards ourselves, to our associates, guardians and also to our peers. There are times we just go blank as if mind is in a vacuum and at that particular moment it becomes difficult to concentrate or contemplate on any specific matter, and we are inclined to do what we often avoid in our daily life like taking out the old garments from the wardrobe, the decade old audio cassettes which are no longer in use, going through the old photo albums etc.

Recently I also had gone through the same state of mind and as I was wandering my eyes got rested in few of my old diaries which I used to write in my college / University days. I took a diary almost a decade old and had experienced a cerebral trance for a moment remembering few old moments of my PG days.

There was one Mr Sunil Aggarwal who happened to be the professor for Business Economics, who had once described the life’s philosophy in a different perspective. He described how an economist or an financial accountant may correlate with his trait. The line were definitely not written by me nonetheless I like to share with my beloved Bishnupriya Manipuri blog readers in order to have a different taste of reading… it says as “Life’s Accountancy….” People who are associated with commerce stream may find it interesting to read

My parents are my opening stock…
What comes I debit … what goes I credit….
My birth is my purchase account .. My ideas are my current assets…
My problems are my liabilities…
Happiness is my profit … sorrow is my loss….
Soul is my good will… heart is my fixed asset…
Duties are my outstanding expenses…
Good working is my prepaid expenses..
Friendship is my hidden adjustments…..
Character is my capital…
Bad things I always depreciate..
Good things I always appreciate..
Knowledge is my investment…patience is my interest…
My mind is cash balance….
Behavior is my journal entry….
Aim is to tally the balance sheet….
God is my closing stock…..
Death is my Sales Account….

Reading these lines after a decade takes us to a trance and ran thro a nostalgia… but life must go on…. and we are back to the present…..

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna.
