If Success is like the Sky:
everybody wants to reach for it and touch it, but never is able to; because it’s all the feeling, one can only feel it, never touch it, because it is all here devoid of any form, shape; it is not materialistic!
If one thinks one is flying in it, one realizes where does it start and end then? If it’s like flying, one must remember one has to take off from one’s base (e.g., the earth) and must remember one has to return or land back on to the base/ground level to fly again; so one has to re-energize/refuel/refresh/restart!
Also, one can be then knocked down off the flying, aka ‘Success‘!
There is no ‘ever‘ concept in Success then!?
So now one comes to realize Success doesn’t have a perfect analogy! It is incomparable as it seems!
If Success is the key to Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Is it a door/gate or room or house or the world or whatever?
If it’s a door/gate, then it can be breached, can be collapsed and can be broken down!
Then there would be privileged pass, time-bound pass, membership pass!
Then there must be at least a door-keeper/gate-keeper/watchman/security/guard. So one can’t just enter like that, one has to fight for it or cheat that to have that entry. But if that was possible, then everybody would do it some or the other way; but the truth is that it’s not.
Also, with this door/gate-key context, what’s the lock then?
Also, if there is the entry, there must be an exit (forced)!
So it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!
And if Success is an enclosed entity, would one want to live confined forever?
If Success is the state of Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Isn’t it the state of feeling Happy ( which is again beyond any exact definition)? So what’s feeling or being Happy then? Isn’t it like feeling good, content, nothing to want, nothing to need, nothing to desire, nothing to search for, nothing to ask for, nothing to beg for, nothing to earn, nothing to yearn, nothing new! Then it’s just the way one feels! It’s just one’s state of mind. So it’s all fluctuating. And all this is self-realized, and also self-controllable!
So again, it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!
So Success is tentatively easy to visualize, but not so easy to realize!
Success can’t be exactly defined!
It exists but without any practical existence!
Even keep all the factors aside- the global/external economy turmoil, scams, corruption, bad/failed governance, falling IIP, policy paralysis, Govt inaction, Lokpal log jam etc, just wondering what if it was a bad to worse monsoon in 2010 or 2011! Then was it possible to recover from the second recession/dip!? Would a bad monsoon prompt or force the Govt to take concrete real positive action and implementation instead of complete disaster inaction or some show offs like some bills passed for the name sake just as today the 13Dec2011? Well, India still should fill lucky as no big natural disaster has happened in the past two years. That will be the last thing any body would even fear.
Regarding the stock markets: well, when there is clarity, growth, affirmation, automatically money in form of FII (yes, that’s the reality, FII flow has been the determining factor on which side the market trend is!) will flow into the Indian markets, in fact, the right strong growing companies’ stocks. In fact, the current situation in the global arena is the best opportunity for India to act right, and automatically many things will fall in place. India, don’t miss this opportunity, you have missed it just earlier. As opportunity doesn’t knock the door twice at least so immediately.
Now coming back to the implementation/functioning, no doubt a clear anti-corruption practice/system at least will kinda make sure whatever is happening, positive or negative is not a show off or hidden scam or trap. I am not sure how a big (yes, big, we need even a big one practically) Lokpal or anti-corruption body/department/system will also remain corruption free practically until we really inculcate the anti-corruption culture not just in the heads but in practice as our very character.
(Well, I know and believe the roots of India than any part or country in the world are still very strong but the display has been completely dormant, actually no show at all! It’s time to switch from hibernate mode to normal system mode.)

There is no “Heart Break” really!
Wonder why people even mention ‘Heart Break‘!
Well, breaking is a bad omen, more so is a heart when broken.
Like when a glass gets broken, the sharp broken pieces would (it’s proportional to the intensity) disperse and pierce and hurt all around; exactly, when heart gets broken, it just takes a toll on the living around.
Give me a break!
The heart always beats in and out.
Have ever felt it deeply?
Practically, even in the bio labs, I have observed, even a separated or taken out heart never gives up.
It always beats up and down.
Down goes it, and then up it goes!
It’s such an inspiration.
So in life, never give up. There are lot of other things to give up or worth giving up. Get rid of the stress, distress, depression, pain, lust, jealousy, hatred, negativity…
You need to pump it down to pump it up!
Realise the truth that you can and always stand on your own because that’s what you have done through out.
Whenever you are pushed back, think that it’s the positive propelling force (as in spring) to leap frog, to shoot even longer.
Whenever you are down for whatever reason, always get up and make it count, make your presence and existence felt.
That’s your true nature, true character, the real you.
