#YouMakeMeWIN! - Nominating a fellow blogger, esteemed author for Blogadda WIN 15

You Make Me Win

There are many times in our lives when chance conversations lead  to something greater and usher in a new path, wonderful beginnings, oftentimes when you were least expecting such a pleasant surprise. Such was my chance conversation with author and avid blogger Chandrika Shubham which led me to start my journey of awakening my inner self through meditative bliss.

It is this wonderful lady, the author of three books on very deep, philosophical subjects namely; ‘Japa Mediation- The easiest way to calm the mind’, ‘Simple Vastu’ and ‘Saral Vastu’ that I would like to nominate for the #YouMakeMeWin; the activity hosted by Blogadda to nominate for the annual blogger awards. You can check out her blog at Chandrika Shubham : A reserved chit-chatter

I’d like use this opportunity to talk about Chandrika’s latest book on ‘Japa Meditation- The easiest way to calm the mind’. In today’s fast paced lifestyle, freedom from stress and living a happy life seem to be a Utopian dream. The challenges to finding your spot of calm in an ever demanding world are something that everyone can attest to. So what if you were given a step by step guide, which was so simple to follow, just like a conversation with a trusted friend or adviser?

Wouldn’t you jump at such a wonderful opportunity? This is exactly what this wonderful book is. A step by step guide to calming your mind, experiencing meditative bliss and improving the quality of your mental well being by following the guidelines outlined in this book.  The book has easy to understand and very relate-able anecdotes told in a very simple style that helps cement the concepts talked about.

Book authored by me on meditation!

Meditation is a very complex subject which most individuals find very hard to adopt in their daily lives. This book brings to the reader the basics, presents tried and tested methods and serves as a complete friend, philosopher and spiritual guide. If you want to experience the benefits of greater mind control, increase your concentration and improve your general levels of happiness then this book is for you. 

Another aspect that I found worth mentioning was that the author has laid special emphasis on inculcating these values in children as well. She talks about various mind control exercises when practiced lead to greater focus and concentration in children which I’m sure would be a boon in terms of improving attention levels toward studies and arming children form a very young age to develop an inherent coping mechanism with stress and challenges.

I’ve written this poem below which brings out the essence of this amazing book in a few lines.

The guide to ultimate peace of mind
Break away from stress of every kind

Adopt the path to self realization
With the age old secrets of meditation

Begin your journey of meditative bliss
Age old wisdom simplified in easy to understand tips

Awaken your inner self
A positive way of life for yourself

Light up your life
Experience freedom from every strife

Let the meditative light
Transform your life; shining bright

I’m blogging for #YouMakeMeWIN to honor a blogger who has influenced me and deserves to be nominated at WIN15.”

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people

Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

My metamorphosis into a bun maska...

My heart leaped with elation When I read- Cafeteria announces the launch of a bun maska station    Now I could have my favourite snack Any time round the clock without holding back
Long winding lines at the chaiwala Seemed to attest that I was not the only one who thought so So light and fluffy, melt in the mouth! Is one ever enough? Umm no!   Can be gobbled up in a jiffy No mess, a time save, really quick and spiffy  Not one but  four versions to choose from Eat to your hearts content without any qualm     Bun with butter, extra cheese, and if you have a sweet tooth, there's jam  Accompanied with a hot cup of  sweet tea,  Anything better can there be?  
 Then one night in my dream Appeared  my super  thin calorie conscious friend who  thinks she's  supreme   I was as usual gobbling away to glory When  she began to bore me with  her  calorie story
  150 calories in a plain bun  A spoon/  cube of butter only another 100  Making a normal one 250 cal  An irresistible slice of cheese ap…
