Raising from flood waters ... Rescue.... Relief...Rehabilitation


Rescue and Relief in chennai flood --sound of the silent voice


 Dear all
  
it is not the time you to waste your time and resources in reacting to whatever you hear in the media , as saying or said by some one.

But i forced to write few things by demand of life and situation just because of few. especially when i experience people , whom i did not even see so far, whichever the picture that they show to me i have not a single doubt. In my fb , 85 to 90 % people i have not know.

especially the posts that i keep following just for their perception, presentation skills, insight of matter. But these days due to blurness i could not read many fonts , even now i made one such mistake. But when some one says my own picture is not me, what can i say about it?

first i am not doing any great service. there are many wonderful people more silently doing it . i know. i don't have any place to reside, no laptop, not even money for my phone. in the last one week , just the top up amount will take more time to resettle him. i don't even know how much pending sofar , he never asked me or send msg to me. some how life running with the love and trust of such wonderful people. even whatever possible things i did is supported by many many wonderful people, whom i not even seen so far.

since flood waters enters i just attending mostly rescue and medical emergency informations. That too not all possible for me. because for every task i take need to coordinate with various people. I am not in the area. neither i dont have anybody to call and ask to do it.

Accidentatly i was given asylum to my friends home. I came just for some other work. but life situation made me to sit. without their support i can't. I dont have lap top, nor a place ,even the food i take it as when some one offers.

so i attended just rescue and did little coordination in relief (still going on) utilised the opportunity to train many , which made them to do the best reach out in the given limitations.

But few of them not enough mature, there also agitating , fighting. if some one sticks some label whats our problem? I agree it should not be happen. But my focus is my materials has to reach my people who are in waters. If i have been in that situation, i have utilised them too , welcommed them to stick label and make it fast in reach out the needy. Because a cooked food can't be eaten after certain hours. Already i am travelling for hours.

And for everything complaining , fighting with officers. neither we don't have resources to feed everyone. we can give just 10000 food pockets , blankets, etc etc but the demand in any given area is not even in thousands it is crores , even if the government orders to release whole stock it take some time to reach. in the mean time so many law and order issues, thefts, lootings, pressure from opposition parties, press etc etc.

so it is not normal situation for anyone to understand. For every man 2 hands and 24 hours not enough. But still they doing their best. is it not the time to observe , learn, support, stand with humanity.

There are millions of patients, childrens suffering without food. when emergency reports we rush to hospital? even the best hospital not able to serve to its best due to their carelessness .

yes i would say its just pure carelessness. it is the captain should sink at the last when the ship drowns in the sea. Because it is he only knows all mechanisms of ship. no other person.

It is not about that hospital and this situation. It conveys us what type of doctors and nurses we have produced in the society. Its time we have to look into education system. Its time we must introspect the flood warning system. But beyond all this at present rescue is more important.

After that situation may arise or not but still it is not the time to talk about those. For the past 2 years, since kedarnath flood  i am screeming like ... but ... never disappointed. know it takes time. it may not be possible within my life time. its ok. let me plant something in this regard.

Though all this things and much more i observing , whats use of this observation, if it not find expression, again i fall in my physical and social limitations. even the face book that i claims, whatever i post has not even reach few thousands. But if one banyan seed grows it can give shelter for 1000 people.

so just go thru what you can do in this moment and do at your best, now i put simply (try to put as much as , from my understanding. i am not a trained person, there may be mistakes in it , but it can give you an opportunity that you can learn more things and educate me too )

first understand that it is operation of  3R's --Rescue, Relief , Rehabilitation - that's what Disaster Management means

yes there are million things need to worked out in a society. But nothing can be done unless everyone can form in line or discipline, execute your everyday action in awareness and consciousness , not reacting in emotional

But we too humans, only , we have limitations. just because we do is everything has to fall in line in no minute? , can we order flood waters not to enter?
here in india , still lot and lot have to go . it has local poitical factors, mind of mass, community set up, like this so many factors are there. no one in the world can't take control over it , no matter who it is?

few days ago , i have shared Erode Kathir write up about kamal's interview because i always believer of human . I am the following him in facebook for last few years. i have seen his care, concern, insight of the matter, of course authenticity. 

But it is the time of Rescue no other issue is important. Only Life is important. There are mixed reports of what he said is keep coming. no one know what he said, how this media twisting, why it is twisting. Because in the name of editing, the power of Editor one can do cutting , twisting whichever way he/she wants inorder to boost the viewership and sales. They will claim its rights of media or media people.

when every one claims his/her rights they conveniently forget their responsbility and other person too has the same. One should act out of his responsibility not from his rights.

your individual rights can't even extend to your wife or husband. But we most of the time does our action only from here. when reactions come from all circles immediately we scream.

But i also shared same kathir's article , about same subject , after realising the suspicion over information received ,doubting his own authenticity . in a way its politely apologising. Because he aware his penned words were read by many many. somewhere he felt he should have waited some more time, so he conveyed sorry in scuttle way. Thats his gentleness. only because of that scuttleness and gentleness his could convert his care and concern in to action.

The same thing kamal did in different way. He should have been stopped just for an appeal to reach out people. He is not an ordinary man like me who have not seen life still. That too it is time for people like him woo lot of chains to bring people to rescue and relief. Its the responsibility he has. Not only responsbility 
but also skill, perception, capability, network, all is available.

it is the time if all actors joined together ,even as two groups just as they did for their local body election, still much wonderful things could have happen. But none of them joined hands. it is not just those people, hotel owners associations, merchant assoiciations etc ctc.

It is not they have not done anything. It is they did below to their potential. Because they know the demand. Every one of them acted from their identity, so they failed. But people like us, we know limitation, just joined hands , though initially we struggled slowly the situation made us to take roles and responsibilities. no one knows who did it. every one know we are just one finger of a massive body. so this body stood up like giant in the flood.

it is what they should have attempted. But just they did as individuals or organisation it has taken by waves. it is the time to loose our identity and raise our humanity. it is not the time to establish our identity more.

kamal is not the only person who lives in chennai or tamilnadu or india. kamal and kathir are not two different entities but its one entity only in two different platforms.

As kathir trusted kamal's i trusting kathir. some one may be fan of kathir or kamal.

once you identify yourself with some thing you cant see the other side of the coin. just because you not able to see it, it does not mean that it is not there. it is your perception is limited. But i enjoy your perception and view of that side from that angle , that's all .

I am just sharing that perception and angle that's all. It does not mean i have such view or accept whatever he/she conveyed. But if people come and react in inbox that means this is what intolerance. This intolerence only made waves few days ago. But there also every one misunderstood , grouped either this side or that side or third side ,

I am not at all concern about the coin or you. when i am not even concern about mylife how can i ... But still i have responsibilty to act individually , socially. Because some one who follows me may intend to do same kind , due to believe of that i am 100% right, and may cause injury and harm to him/her and life around them. it is not me 100% reached. it is their devotion on me reached 100%.

Even if i myself explains him/her they could not see it beyond. To see something you need clarity not devotion. to experience something you need devotion. experiencing and seeing is two differnt things. there is lot of difference between hearing and listening.

But when you yourself entangles or identifies with something you cant see it , but your experience is goes deeply. their pain , suffering hurts you. now you also get collapsed, cant do what you came fore or wish to do. you could not able to see that man's collapse, you see only his surface, the pain or loss. i am concern about his loss. i cant repay him anything. but now i have to rebuild the man who collapsed , once he/she stand up they themself can rebuild it .

have you not seen the video of one lady speaking in english. her all assets gone, she does not have a place to hide in chillness. but she has not lost her smile, english too, not worried about future,  just lives in the moment but has deep pain of loss and has highest gratitude for life. 

whether she aware of this or not is not important whether she knows the technique to transmit or not is not important but she effortlessly doing it that too so gracefully thats why she said you all my children. there are million people living in the world like this. without those people's blessing people like me can't even move single inch.

let me come to the our subject. but in this episode of kamal everyone reacting so fast either for or againist. one can react for too. I too have not waited much time. It is this moment, when everyone is in the edge of emotional, one should exercise his actions from his consciousness and awareness. you should reach out from your heart beats but you should work from your consciousness.

especially when the whole community is in the edge of grief, fear of death, one has to give hope and trust, not to add more panic. Because than the flood waters this panic will kill them so fast.

That's why during the relief period lot more death happens. Not in the rescue period. In the rescue moment one has little hope, may be its not enough to claim up in the tree, but it gives energy to hang. that's why he/she hangs till rescue people comes. it may be moments or hours or days. it does not matter about the time.  the consciousness tells him that wait life will bring some one. but as time goes and goes he looses hope. now he doubts his own hope. as soon as doubts come fear comes. as soon as fear comes in not doing mistake he/she starts doing mistake. all this things not even the time of writing one word.

Thats why in disaster managment they given first and formost priority to Rescue. They have been professionally trained. one should act with obsolute focus, as machines at its maximum potential, that's all. rest all next.

you would have noticed people complaining the NDRF or SDRF or Army or Fire personnels that they are not reaching them to give food and materials supply. It is not their duty or protocol. They can get involve in those depending upon how the rescue operations need, which scale and depth.

when government realizes threat to human life, the situation has the possibility of disaster ....or once realize it's going beyond your control, can turn into  disaster, that moment itself the administration starts to gear it up, alerted all , it won't wait for CM or PM , CM and PM will be updated and alerted in same priority , they have protocols and systems for that.

Because they know it is not in their hands now, no one knows how much time life gives to you, no one can predict, because in a closed observation of water levels its just few moments, they may thing at this flow rate it may take 1 hour to reach danger level and prepare the coordinating activities, but when sudden rise of inflow , when life not given them opportunity to act, they immediately alert the system that situation is out of control.

But they too humans. they might have errors and mistakes too. some times you can't even have time to save your life and alert others. That's why warning system has been placed. But we are living in our own cocoons of idea or boundary. We are not living tuned with nature. we are living in our own mind and ideas /concepts.  In nature our laws wont work. it has its own law. no one can command or order for it.

so when government realizes threat to human life, the situation has the possibility of disaster seeks the help of trained personnels to save lifes of humans. they can't even save animals. Government is not just for humans. :) but life will take of everything, it is just we do our best from our ability and within limitations. so they try to save every life that comes in their way, whether it is human or animal. But one can't transport a buffallo in a boat , its need different support. That too for such a huge animal , especially in the life threat moment , it is not easy to control or manage.

so the government only focus on rescue. the whole administration runs on the priority of rescue. even in this they will act as teams. because one can't involve others now in this team. no one can get trained suddenly. in a society it is not possible to train every one also.

but one can give basic education to all which can solve little bit. that's what the countries like japan, korea,indonasia does. everyone knows what to be done. No need of any instructions. it has to be happen when your life not in threaten.

for that people should listen the government. the government should act unbiaslly to all his citizens. the political people should fought in parliament house but work together in field.

But here in our country , you know very well. They bitterly fight in field but together take contract in house. That too in tamilnadu no one need to say. it is not just today. thats how we lived so far for the past 4 decades. even still .

its a divided community. the politicians keep them in same way to fetch the fish out of water. which ever way you divide people , whether it is language based, caste based, religion based, community based , etc it is division thats all. its not a community with difference. both has lot of differnce .

let me come back again, ha ha :)

now as soon as news spreads the second phase won't wait for anyone. people they themself initiated the relief works which will catch fire and spreads. the government is still assessing the situation and monitoring the rescue. it wont take one more step, till rescue complete, till they evacuated the people from danger of life. in this point of time every one should stand with government.

But we don't have any systems here in this. i could see the tv anchors going in charted boats or helicopters for their TRP ratings. Do you know how crime it is? you are reducing the resources of Government machinery. But if a collector or authority stops you people from studio will scream all over the country that simple folks believe that you are acting out of responsibility.

They believe that you are talking for their life. because your sweet words soothening them, your presentations and statistics amazing them. you people admired by them. But you people , worse than .... using their devotion and belief for your TRP ratings. for you, your viewership is more important than anything. you will not realise how you are distraction to the rescue or relief works?

you will say , no no if we not report how the government does , how people get aware ? its citizens right that government has to serve

or you will say , we just using one boat or one helicopter , that too for one hour or two hour just to make a coverage, (but no viewer knows that you keep edited stuff of same thing , mixed with past clippings , retelecast whole day ) you can't rescue all lakhs of people in that one hour. Because you are realizing the value of one's life. right now your life is not threaten.

there are so many things like this. Even what i present from what i see in the surface may not be true. I don't know whether i am presenting rightly or wrongly. But i share the pain and suffering , the scream of survival.

So Rescue and Relief  is going on one side. But on the other side we sitting here in home , eat variety menu, Debate who to be blamed , Discuss the solutions that has no possibility to implement as of now.

Recently In Paris, just after one attack, overnight they changed many things in their law. Given more power to Government. which may also can cause damage in future. But none of the political party , even the oppostion parties, tv channels screem like you people.

So Realise the importance of life. Reach out the next house people.

Because today or tomorrow the same kind of situation one or other way can follow us.
 .
It is the moment of chance to raise our humanity , not funds. 

if you can join with any team and do whatever you can please do.  for person like me , unless some one give schelter and food , share their resources i cant do anything. i am thankful to those couples. unless this support not extended i cant reach out even this much. I have troublelled them lot. Their family or financial situations are not yet sound still it is just their extend of humanity and heart. Let the lord bless them . just conveying my sorry to them. i know they also will read.

Or if you interst to do something please msg me to my inbox , i also need some one like you. past 5 hours i could not focus any other thing except this. i know my limitations. i asked time to present the proposal to a fund donor  who come forward by lord Myilvahanan's work. 

They are ready to give me quite a large amount . there are a team of people ready to do in field. there are are people who scream for food and basic needs. But i have to move my camp. i don't even have a permanent place or laptop or any person to draft what i say? 

i am just very ordinary person. above all my blur vision and physical limitations . But need to write huge post , just because ...... i have neither seen kamal interview or amirkhan's interview. But i trust  the people. i love their expressions no matter how it is . i respect their devotion. i look up for their insight and technical skills. but i know i have only 2 hands and this moment.

so my choice of priority lies within this. now even if i die i have no issue. because this fire can light up the world. 

if you have time or resource , ready to work as a team, ready to offer selfless service pls msg , lets us reach out few people atleast.

swami sushantha    

Extremely thank you for sparing your time.

Reaching out Nepal

few days ago when the earth got jolted for few seconds , first time in my life i too experienced the earth quake. i am just looked up the roof , thinking about how to run over etc etc.

The 2 continous jolts reminded me lot about that nights , that my people go through in Nepal. In fact i too was fully awake as i did in 17th june 2013 (earlier many times due to work or mahashivarathiri celebrations only) and always on alert to run , sorry i can't run in between a narrow street where both sides huge and tall buildings standing. so i cleared a space under cot. ofcourse i am fully prepared and ready bag to travel either to heaven or to hell.

As a person who witnessed the disaster managements , the attitude of civilized peoples in those unexpected situations, the lengthy procedures and systems of Governments, the service of selfless and dedicated individuals, the representatives of NGO's who are busy with documentation and capturing in pictures that express every single act of them which not only helps more support mobilization but also promote their fame and reputation , of course the sensible and responsible people who born with rights and always want to expose what Government or NGO's not does , the filthy (sorry fifth) pillar of democracy ....... beating hearts etc etc.

It is still unbelievable for myself that I also wish to do something for my people. What else a human should do in this moment? Either he sit and do the fb post with few write ups, Post RIP's comments, share the pictures , twit a comment,  criticize some one which can express our wisdom Or silently reach out our universal family and do whatever he /she can in that moment.

Though i have accepted the responsibility of offering my volunteering service to  Kedarnath Sewa Samithi still that also not yet grown like me. ha ha.  But when i suggested them, i wish to do something for my nepal, they also could not able to do except showing me green signal.

I know as an individual or as a team of organisation , nowhere near to the demand. Many people will say it's just Black to White conversion activity. But i respect that too. Because even such a activity feeds many many millions who does not know what's next? Gives the hope and trust on life and people around them.

I remember how people just wandered here and there just to find a little possibility of escaping from death. Life is happening just fraction of fraction of nano seconds. many of the people just few seconds behind me on 17th june 2013 morning, today they become history. It is not me winner. It is just me keep going without knowing where I will end or how I will end? But running pumps lot of adrenaline in the system. Makes us, to become part of life in the given moment. Makes me, not to carry the burden of win or loss. Makes me, to give my best in the moment. No wonder i love sports and games.

I don't want just to be a spectator. Even when i play computer games or mobile games i could able to watch how my adrenaline and pressure increases. Whether i win or not certainly i don't want to lose the game or moment. It is in such a way i wish to live that death should be proud to take my wicket. The moment should freeze for the loss what it cherished so far.

Unlike last time, this time, our kedarnath sewa samithi fb page given me to post an wonderful opportunity so that i can become postman for you people , once again. Sincerely when i posted a status i did not expect any single penny. for the people who enquired in inbox i just replied as, it is just i am trying to reach my heart beat sound thats all.

I know i can't even knock the doors of Big ashrams or NGO's that are announcing programs and projects for Nepal. Many of them not even choose me. i know that. Because, they had to take care me too. And there are already lot and lot of people waiting in queue, to serve from their end by paying for them.

The very big corporate companies and billionaires are ready with supply of loads and loads of fresh materials. All of them want to this charity either with the blessings of their spiritual masters or God. No one wants to do simply just for doing. They strongly believe that their master or God will help them in the super most court , in presenting their argument on the final judgment day  and erase all papas or add punyas in their accounting sheets.

i really thank to the person who invented the Papa (sin). If that is not there by this time i dont know how many humans will remember their heart beat and humanity. And these materials by distributing through the volunteers of their organization , the service organization will get fame, donations. Of course i wont blame those charity institutions.

Only those handful of religious mad man's (it is sad they exists in all religions though majority goes to Christianity and Islam), who rightly misinterpret and sell their holy books in hospitals and at death houses too. They have no value for others rights to practice what they follow for many many generations.

Even in Uttarakhand the post disaster situations exposed this pseudo secularism from politicians, which brought first time churches. But i must settle for minimum satisfaction because the so called opposing groups not yet brought good hospitals or labs which can serve people in less cost and better way. On the other hand those Churches also not yet brought. That's the reality.

so i was in the middle of how to reach out my people in Nepal. But when few  local uttarakhand people given me some hope, saying that they are collecting some materials which can be transported to Nepal through their local contact in Nepal. Many of you aware that  Nepali people are the Major part of labours who are doing work in Uttarakhand .

i also posted an appeal. For this , i got the sound of few more hearts.
Raji Kumarasamy and krishna  -- Rs. 10000
nandhagopalu balakichenine        - Rs.5000
Harini Jambunathan                   -- Rs. 2500.00
two people who did NEFT transfer - Rs. 2500.00+Rs. 3164

So Rounded with collections received from pilgrims and locals , Rs.25,000 today i taken from bank account and sent through a volunteer who are joining the relief work team which is going to Nepal for distribution of collected materials.

They are meeting the other members of their team in haridwar today (12/5/2015). Though i personally thought to go with them at least up to haridwar and give as materials , instead of cash, for me to transfer these funds into samithi account (for which i need the complete details of donors including their ID numbers) its a lengthy and demanding process. And i also thought instead of me going, for which anyway min Rs.1500 to Rs.2000 expenses, because it take 3 days min ( to go down 1 day , to come up again 1 day and work 1 day) which can be utilised for good cause and purpose.  

So i took help of   person who is living in haridwar , to ensure the purchase of quality materials worth to this amount. (just now -12/5/2015 , 8 pm , got the message from Sharmaji, who is a tailor , that he got materials not just only for this cost. But what he did is, he took these boys at every shop in the market, spoke about me - many of them just know me whenever i go there -- though we have not spoken --especially due to discovery Tv -these days many recognise me at Haridwar and Rishikesh -- collected some of the materials as free , such as blanket, pants, tshirts, sweaters, shoes ) what a job really. just once in a year i met him. he was the one who stitched my kurtha -pyjama - after i lost everything in kedar flood )

when these boys told me last night , that he is leaving today (11/05/2015)morning , i made them to wait for few hours, just to take the money from bank and give to them.

But there also God's play came so i reached out one of the local person got his timely support, gave them and send them first  then i took the money from bank and given to this person.

These team of young boys from different places somehow managed to collect a truck load of materials, many of them in touch with me in fb, just only one person i know personally. In fact when they discussed the idea, it gave me immense satisfaction and i guided and supported them with various information's by referring various organizations who are doing field work in this time. In fact they them self had similar kind of experience just 2 years ago.

These simple people just want to support their labours, who are from Nepal region. They don't have any banner, not know skilled and trained people like in big organizations. But it is their heart that beats the music for their fellow humans. It is very amazing that they collected one truck load of materials which consists of grocessaries, lantrens, blankets, children wear, dresses, few tents.

They not even planned to work like organizations by choosing one particular place. Because, quantity of materials collected is not enough for the demand. So i guided them to reach out any of the organizations which are working there and offer their collection materials and do the physical sewa to the people who are already offering their service to humanity.

I know this is not even a miniscule for the demand. But i must satisfy only with this best. This too is possible only because of those four wonderful people. I know there are many many hearts beating the music for our people in Nepal. Even i got few requests of donations today(11/05/2015) after i given money to the volunteers and send off them. I Guided all of them to support any of the organisations, few i listed (like GOONCH, RAMAKRISHNA MISSION).

let us pray that no one should face such situation in their life. Because living as Beggar is different. But when time suddenly makes you as beggar is different. I consciously choose to live as a Beggar, only in External way of living. That's the difference.

Yes today i felt the need of Organisation, Camera, Documentation, publicity, promotion just to satisfy the donors to create the evidence for this act. But for a sanyasi, who lives in one meal that too both the room and food is offered by someone, just for sadhana purpose.

for the past 4 years when even great ashrams not willing to serve the meals for sadhakas more than 2 days, it is these simple local people keeping me in their fold of love and trust is really privilege and blessing of life.

People are believing/trusting that the photo documents, bills, banners are the proof for the service. Recently i am shocked when the Auditor of Sewa samithi also asks to create photo evidence for every activity that we do, in order to get exempted from tax. I told him, i do my best but incase if that is not satisfy and has to pay the tax, lets go ahead. Because who is going to give me a quality Camera, who is there with me to take pictures, who is there with me to work for without payment?

It is the Grace of my Guru and Shiva that keeps me going with joy and grace.
above all i am neither interested to do all round about games in order to get exempt from income or service taxes. It is My rule. i am happy to follow.  I just told them to guide as per law and to keep the transparency in accounts. He was very happy to serve for me now. Even he cancelled his fees.

People like Shahjahan from Delhi is very big inspiration for me. He reaches out many people through his personnel bank account whenever some one reaches him for his appeals. It is the bondage of trust.

Neither I am not living in any organisation. Even for Kedarnath Sewa Samithi it is me only volunteering. Nor no donors behind me to take care of my every day , even my single meals of the day. If people not remember me then i go to bed without eating. Never felt hungry or tired. It is that day i need to be in fast thats why no one except shiva remembered me on that day.

I Trust people than their Papers and Evidences, which can be possible to create it. May be my services will not reach hundreds and millions. Its ok. Because i dream a world there no one should have any need to serve to another one. So i am happy to be in this way. Living and doing silently.

The one with Trust will walk with me and life. The one whose trust and faith is shaking will tremble when earth quakes. Whenever Earth shakes or Waves strikes or lands slides these are not just geometrical aspects, it also an aspect to bring to the ground from your own world of living in mind and feel your heart beat sounds.
There are few more reached out me now after i made the contribution. Very nice to see that. My heartful thanks to you people. I guided them to offer to any organisation or to PM relief fund as i could not take and complete their orders.

Many of you not aware of my situations. Since the survivol in kedarnath flood, till now not a single organisation or outfit reached out me. I don't even have permanent place to reside.  Today if the person who offers shelter ask me to change my room i can't go for searching for another one. Happily will settle at Lord viswanatha's lotus feet.

My bank account is a gift of life by Some one. Which always gets filled naturally whenever few hearts beats for my fb posts (only those time it brings bell sounds in mobile). And in a few days time it will become empty as it has to be.

Now one year passed since that man opened an bank account for me. In this one year, i did these kind of post man job for the people who contributed, for student's education, diwali celebrations in orphanages, taurpalin for cold wave protection in an orphanage, sadhu sewa's, now Nepal relief too. But My shiva takes care of my one meal.

This year through you people he has given me a banner to offer myself. He himself reached me through you and supported to offer and sponsor totally for the first time Annadhanam in Guptakashi during his arrival here on 20th april 2015. (Kedarnath Doli yatra to kedarnath for the season opening)

It is these simple people's beating hearts offering the shelter. tea and food. I am really privileged to have such wonderful people in my life. Even my Half baked Hindi earned few wonderful beings.

in Jan 2015, somehow i committed for a sadhu (due to the saying of some one after reading my post in blog) that i take care of their house rent (logically i can't, when i dont have any contacts or ask anyone) Even the devotee who initially told , later conveyed as its misunderstanding. But i already purchased a big taurpaulin, on the amount that he committed for me, which was badly needed for an orphanage, to protect the children from cold wave for the amount that the devotee committed.

But till now last 5 months somehow i get the support, don't even know who transfers the amount and he made me to fulfill my commitment to him, even though its just an misunderstanding. From this month i have increased 1/3rd of what i already given to them. And this support makes that sadhu to offer bhiksha for few more sadhu's who are coming in travel. It is nice to see these wonderful Sadhu's who want to do something for their fellow people irrespective of how the other one treats or sees them.

Now i committed and working to get the support for complete ration materials and other materials through which and through him , the Kedarnath sewa samithi can offer Annadhanam for sadhu's through out the year.

past six months so much there to write. i remember how i worked in 1993 to 97 initial days of isha , then in 2009 after deployed in Thenkailyam organisation , now again in 2015.

For the first time , All the four Nayanmar's standing in nearly 30 flex Banners from Guptakashi to Sonprayag. In 150 Posters their grace is radiating. Many of the materials i got as free. But the Labour charge still Rs.18000 is pending. But the man who worked is happily waiting for me with trust.

ஆனால் இங்கு தமிழகத்தில் இருந்து யாத்திரை வந்த கல்வித் துறையில் பணிபுரியும் ஆசிரிய பெருமகனார் ஒருவர் , இந்தி தெரியாது என்கிற காரணத்தால் உதவினால்......... 

நான் வேறு ஒரு விஷயமாக பிரதான் பூஜாரிக்கு எழதிய கடிதத்தை கொண்டு வந்த காரணத்தினாலேயே கேதார்நாத்தில் அவருக்கு சிறப்பு தரிசனம் உள்பட அனைத்து வசதிகளையும் செய்து கொடுத்த அம்மனிதர் எங்கே ? என் முகம் முன் சிரித்து பேசி அந்த பக்கம் ஒரு யாத்ரீகரிடம் புறம் பேசி செல்லும் இவர் எங்கே?

Already the life of isha taught me to do anything without any expectation. I always feel privileged about what i got so far. Now the flood made me to live without anything , even the expectations of sadhana has been taken off. Even after waiting for 6 months, past 20 days i could be able to sit at his feet in Guptakashi with utmost Trust. Since oct 25th 2014, i came down from kedar, i was just expecting these days of going back to kedar and continue my sadhana.

But now without Rs.100 one can't stay there in Government tents. This is because now local people not yet moved to kedar. For the past 2 years, the locals not have any tourism. The Government in the name of rebuilding economy for locals, instead of providing Governance it runs hotels and lodges.

At least till last year, it offered free services of food and shelter. But this time, it brought payment of Rs.100. May be next year it may increase to Rs.500.

Though given application to allot some land, My shiva is still not yet wake up to grant. Nor he not yet given few rooms for samithi so that i can live there and serve to devotees along with my sadhana. Any way he is the master and he has complete rights. And he always does right things at right time.


So let me wait 364 days for that one day to count. After all it is just years. If i have washed out in flood it may be in janma's. My willingness and patience brings joy and trust for me. Not only that it brings wonderful people like you and make me to serve for humanity. Enjoying the Post Man Job.

Because, for such social works a Sanyasi do not required.  Just humans with live with care and concern is enough. The job of a sanyasi is creating people, not creating the one more Organization. An organization is just a basic system which can help those people to support each other in their needs and to educate and equip them self to offer them self as a universal volunteer.

Let us Create More Universal Volunteers.

Life of Sanyasi # Nath Tradition # Being a Women # appeal for creating better stay for her

Those who can, please extend your support.

The sanyasi and maa belong to Nath Tradition. The tradition set by saint Goraknath. The maa is from Guwahati , near kamakya and the Sanyasi Shani Nath is from uttarpradesh.

Shani Nath is well known to me for the past 4 years , since I came here. My half broken hindi and his half broken English made us united and above all his keen interest on sadhana (chanting, meditation) made me feel close to heart .

In Kedarnath also , like me , many times he moves out from the crowd places to continue his chanting and meditation. After roaming Allahabad, Varanasi and other sacred places he was now back at the feet of kashi viswanath temple , Guptakashi.

Kali Maa , the purest heart also came to live at the feet of kasha viswanath. Both of them taking schelter at the (thinnai) front side open places of the temple for the past 6 months. They have very small room, where they cook and have their Prasad.
For their food , on every Saturday they goes for bhiksha to the near by villages and collects the grocessaries and vegetables from householders. In this they happily serves the other sadhu’s and sanyasi’s who are visiting the temple .

We are also in discussion as how to extend this sadhu sewa to all the sadhu’s and sanyasi’s who visits Guptakashi on travel. It is also my dream, due to my personnel experiences during my initial days when even the great and only ashram in Guptakashi , Vidya Dham , (that time manager, after 20 days suddenly one day  told not to come for bhiksha.)

But I must be so gratitude for that man, unless otherwise I can’t be stand where I am right now, I can’t be got exposed for all wonderful people whoever I met thereafter. Infact I would say, that day, he has removed my eye glasses, which brought vast sky to see in natural eyes. it is the shiva spoke thru him and guided me for the future.

Right now I committed them to work closely , so that in a few years time , they can serve all the sadhu’s and sanyasi’s , atleast one time meal and few cups of tea , if I can collect and transport the ration materials for the activity.

I have complete trust that they can deliver the same service with utmost devotion and shraddha to all the people , if Lord Viswanatha supports and blesses our team in this sacred task.

But before that, much more basic need has to be fulfilled. Both Shani Nath and Kali maa staying in these places , by occupying one side of the temple for each even in this winter.

Being a women , even though it is at temple gate only, when the liquor bottles available even in remote places of himalayas, it is our concern that she need to be taken care properly. Above all sanitation facilities for her during rainy days or bitter cold. As a brother to maa, shani nath is already in search of little bigger room so that she can stay in night there itself.

But still the problem exists in different way. toilet and bathroom. You people aware of this. We are talking in many forums , even Our PM committed to bring Toilets to every home. So in this context , I told Shani nath to see some place which has bathroom facility even if it is little higher cost.

Because he has searched for a single room which is approx Rs.1000 as rent but for bathroom and toilet, there is no facility for her, in such cost. She has to come out for public toilet ( you know the condition of our public toilets much better than me) which is nearly 500 mtr distance. so I committed them, to take an house itself, so that we will get better space to keep our ration materials along with comfortable space for her to live , cook and serve to others.

Our Sanyas life , we can’t predict anything such unless we have an ashram space and our own buildings. But the ashrams that created for these purpose, to do sadhana in himalayas, by wonderful people, after they gone it all become like lodges due to the management mostly goes in the hands of family people. it is because they could not get donation from public as service and devotion get degrades. i know and experiencing such situations in almost every ashram that i visited 10 years ago during my parivarjaka days.

The only ashram in Guptakashi, Vidyadham , which was there as abode for sadhus, during the period of maharaj , now though it has bigger place called sant niwas , not even sweeping happens (not just in this room , even where guests staying rooms). They can offer one room for such people but their administration won't allow , also the other end people who given such support not know how to be there or after some time they also do same thing for new comers, because of the fear of losing what they enjoy. very few passing thru that too because of the grace of Guru.

one thing is very clear for me. The organisations which was created by many wonderful people , after 2, 3 generations they failed to carry out same tradition of transmitting the same devotion and care around life. Atleast the administrator has to create one right person during his life time. But that is very big task. 

Else how they could have opened the first church in upper himalayas, by giving loans and blankets to poor people. Even if i start one such thing, it may get distort. but the same thing should not be hindrance for our care and concern for people around me.

so I suggested to find out some house, which is 5, 10 mins walkable distance from temple. Though he welcomed the suggestion the monthly budget , committment on rent ,which may costs a rent of Rs 2500 -3000.

For which Shani Nath hesitated because we need to pay the rent every month in time, and its huge cost. Right now they have a space which is just, something around 6 x 6 , just cooking space. Even for which they have to pay Rs.500 per month that too it belong to an Dharmashala only.

Above all the house owner has to satisfy to offer the same. These days it is because of the belief , and in the unavoidable circumstances when we do such services to needy people, every one thinking that i have big group of people who can support me financially. they look me in disbelief ,if i say only dr maharaj given money for me to go to Rishikesh. (fact is fact , whether they believe or not, so i am not worry)

me know what death means. me lived in the situation of flood, in no minute people have floated just as bodies without life. i am not concern about who thinks what. it is that incident, moment , lord spared my life to do something. speaking about vivekanandha is easy , working like him in the present day world ....... one has to go thru all. 

thats why I committed them that I will write an article about their need and Lord viswanath will send us some one to support monthly, so that we can be at his feet and slowly build the sewa Kendra, by collecting ration materials to serve the sadhu’s and sanyasi’s.

Before we step into sewa Kendra, it is my wish that they must settle at least for a one year period, at least for a minimum of 6 months. Above all sewa Kendra needs Godown space , transportation costs which are all depending on finance. Because once we started then people will come with expectation, we can’t send them in empty hand.

So those things we kept pending till Lord send us right people and necessary materials with the support of finance. But for this, its small request , even if 5 or 6 people offer a small contribution /every month, it will help us to create a proper shelter (house on rent) for Maa to stay.

i know your question, where and how i am living. me a man , she is a women. Thats not a difference in spiritual but in social circumstances , she has the first priority in her basic needs.

for me, Lord Viswanath's lotus feet always available. a Small bedding space available. The day when he decides, he has to keep me fit enough and with a space to do Asanas, to share the schelter with any one of you (during your visit) for a day or two, to offer Prasad to the devotees of shiva, He or His devotees will find me an house for rent. :)

Right now her need is more important. 

IF anyone wish to contribute kindly request you contact in inbox. Don’t worry if I get extra amount , we can offer them for grocessaries and vegetables too.

your every single paise of donation, will not only help them to find a better place but also help them to serve for others, offering prasad to the visiting sadhu's and sanyasi's
