Sure step of Evolution

Thursday, January 08, 2015

Light radiated from Puducherry

Survival of the fittest tantamounts to being commercially viable at present, and so languages & religions need much more than mere emotions.

Events baffle but the sure step of Evolution is on
Apparent discord proceeds towards an unseen Harmony
In conflict, people prepare the road.

Rather than the paradigms of the past
Nature would hew new pathways
A destination, eschewing repetition
To the Vedic progressive Perfection.

War, a Vedic device to score over the night
And welcome Evolution, an unavoidable interregnum
A delight for the hero but for choosing sides.

Tagore's ambivalence over Sandeep
And Subhas hobnobbing with Hitler,
Gandhi's fetish for Nonviolence,
Marxists securing Nehru's obedience.

Not easy to decipher the ways of the Evolution
Eminent men have faltered in their sojourn
Not Pune nor Delhi
Light radiated from Puducherry.

Finitude and Philosophy

Finitude and Philosophy

Sadhu-Sanga mulls over consciousness
From pigs to piano, quantum and qualia
Taking a tour from Turing to Penrose and Rosen
Leibniz to Gödel

Machines can know their incompleteness
Numbers conspire to spur consciousness
Notions from Nagasena to Chaitanya
Tug of war over physicalism

From eight-limbs Yoga to eight-bends Gita
Mails flying to and fro throughout eight praharas
Weaving web of words on world wide web
To comfort

Theories don't compare, domains vary
Pushing names a political game
Leibniz is lionised, Gödel waiting for Godot
TM and Vedic Unified-Field

Investigating consciousness via science
And mathematics can never be satisfying
Because of the subjective nature
Of the object of observation.
It's agreed that we are far away
From any semblance of a solution
This should mean as a very sobering attitude
In the face of human finitude.

Excellent Tusar. Without laughter, joy and detachment, there is no life.

Life vs. Yoga

Wednesday, June 28, 1995

Life vs. Yoga

Thou shalt not love
All egoistic attachments will have to go,
Be it freinds or the family
The whole world revels in quid pro quo.

Thou shalt not speak
The first condition is to speak as little as possible,
In silence is the peace
To indulge in gossiping is wrong and listening to too.

Thou shalt not read
Sheets of falsehood should not mar your mornings,
Novels and Dramas too
Which incite the passion and drag you down.

Thou shalt not judge
Of men, their actions and events, the Divine knows better,
Can one judge oneself?
So it is but futile to look at things this way or the other.

Thou shalt not do good
To be altruistic is to be covertly egoistic,
Be just for justice' sake
Not for others' gratefulness as a bargain

Thou shalt not enjoy
When joy comes, can grief be far behind?
Prefer good to pleasant
By renouncing only comes the true enjoyment.

Aji akashe is magical and majestic

Aji akashe is magical and majestic. Although the film Sri Lokanath has since been resurrected, watching the video of its songs has not been possible till now. How long to wait? [TNM55]

Matches majestically to the Pakhiraj elsewhere

Fine prose that Surya babu weaves

Thanks for the nice review but the critical aspect seems to be stemming from an erroneous translation of Tarjama as Analysis. Tarjama is more of an Account or Interpretation while Bishleshana is the right word for Analysis. So, we can forget the objection and enjoy the fine prose that Surya babu weaves and highly insighful connections he makes. With good wishes for his forthcoming book on Odia film songs, [TNM55]

When I Google Tarjama, it has several meanings including transfer. And the second aspect is Surya babu’s account is actually replete with analytical observations. That they are limited to a select parameters is another matter. So without expecting any further (higher) discourse, it can be said that Tarjama in the subtitle is not out of place. Thanks. [TNM55]

One would ordinarily agree but for the word factual which, viewed critically, turns out to be a misnomer. Surya Deo informs that a particular song is indebted to some folk style, but it’s not a self-evident fact. Thus, it’s through his idiosyncratic observations that they come out as facts to the reader. On the other hand, he might have identified some song as touching the hearts of a large number of listeners based on its lyrics which may not be really factual. Besides, the book also contains some errors which we treat as facts till the new book is published.
It’s good that this conversation is prompting us to examine Deo’s text and its sub-texts more closely but to say that it lacks analysis would amount to denying him of any originality. [TNM55]

[on 23rd may film journalist's forum is going to screen Chilika tirey @ jaydev bhaban. on that occassion my new book Odia cenema geeta 1936 ru 1069 will be released . need your blessing and support. here is the link for cover viewing.

The song sequence with Minati is from Sadhana (1964).
