This is one of the topics of (2006 written) which was supposed to be published on our last planned magazine "Catalyst". Many a chemical lochas took place in my life; and I had to get paused on such activities. Chemical reactions are still there. Still, no idea what happened to that magazine. Completely isolated me! Nobody's to blame! Anyways, I was just going thru my notebook, found this article, and thought to put it up here. Since the years dot, my contribution on the site has just got vanished. Invisible into the background!
_____________________________________________________________I was just trying to set forth my thoughts way back in 2006. Any misapprehension, I would be greatly thankful if anyone speaks better way with a good logic of issue. Who cares anyway? ____________________________________________________________
Chyakti-Marti, every time, everywhere, any type of event, pleasant occasion, unpleasant occasion, Chyakti always takes position as a major part on each and every occasion of our small Rung World. In my opinion, Chyakti isn't so bad that it stands every time all around the Rung happenings. (If in some of the events it does not take part then make that moment exception and here, I'm writing in general point of view.) They, Our Forefathers, made Chyakti a major need in the celebration times and we have been following, I say it is good and it is a path to make environment more enjoyable. If some of us try to divert enjoyable moments into offensive moments (i.e. dust-up and all) then it's our responsibility to stop them on the spot. I would not stand against Chyakti and I won't say "stop production of Chyakti" and even I don't say "don't make it a major part of our festivals" rather I say "it should be there". But one thing I'm not able to understand why Chyakti comes in between when there is any sad moment occurs. I guess maybe, just to kill the affliction and yea, we can say, it's a ritual. And in the times of Shae Thumu (worship), I personally noticed why Chyakti Thumu is necessary. (I meant to say, on those Shae Thumu where Chyakti Thumu is necessary.) Therefore, all the way I found it isn't so bad that we Rung Mung are too much into Chyakti-Marti. And yea, just go through business point of view and don't feel bad about it, Chyakti was one of the common income source of every 2nd family in the past. Even today, if we investigate, we would be finding a lot of families are still dependent upon this business only. If someone wants to stop such kind of activities, come up and open some other sources of earning system for them. Now you might be saying, Rungs are having hundreds of business formulas so why Chyakti? I say, ask them! They try all the business keys and find that Chyakti also is a key to stay alive and manage some money for their children's education. So, why "NO" to Chyakti-Marti? Better I say "OKAY", if it is a source of earning money or is in our rituals/customs. But yea, we will have to consider each and everything, happened in the past. How much have Chyakti been found beneficial or harmful?

I have spent many a sleepless nights in the past few weeks, all thanks to the hectic and engrossing sports events happening all across the globe. And yet, I have missed quite a few. Soccer, Hockey, Tennis, Cricket,F1.... you name it, and it's all happening around. A few hits here and there; and lots of misses. That's how I have marked my sports calendar year till date. I guess India’s early exit from the T20World Cup will help my tired eyes get some good rest ).
Watching Fedrer win the French Open was being an eyewitness to a historical moment (after all, only 5 instances of a career grand slam did occur in the last century). It was a delight to see him win this coveted trophy after years of perseverance and patience. I hope and wish that this championand ambassador of the game continue to delight us with his game over years to come. His achievement is certainly an inspiration to many, and realization for those who had written him off.
Another inspiring and euphoric event on our sideof the globe has been the conquest of Everest by Rugsya Kavita; hats off to her courage and spirit. I long to hear her experience of the journey including a reply to Navin da's query, "How it feels while coming down"!).Both the above mentioned events are unrelated yet have a similarity in nature and a message for our lives.
Both events are equivalent to having conquered the biggest challenge in one's field. I wonder of just one question now. We too have our own little and big moments of success, but with an achievement like this, what (meaningful/exciting goal) next?..
