Lamp of Galaxy


When I look at you, I go in a state of galaxy. Every organism is a micro galaxy and every galaxy is a macro organism. The state and wish to be alive is something unified and flow through entire universe.


We are only alive till we have something insatiable, something incomplete...without those white dreams and blue basket of desires we are dead, you are holding my last wish in the magical galaxy of Maya.

Mother and Daughter



The moment I look into your eyes... It gives me a journey, the journey of your childhood, the entire traversal of your life from childhood to being a grand-mom.

It's amazing and incomparable to see the entire life cycle in a single go. I am sure you'd have been the same way your grand daughter is, the way we all grow in our childhood, chirping,
dynamism, dreams, questions, surprises, magically looking at almost everything; is all we define as childhood. I am sure you've seen your childhood in a very similar way, the land was a village,
the sea was river (punchanve), and the ground was a vast field. I don't even know when "17 no." and the cold storage was setup and when the durga puja at "chhilka par" was started...but I am sure you would have seen the their conception, growth and pride in time. The best part of staying a small place is, your observation of time grows because space doesn't changes a lot, you tend to observe the minor changes also, but cities are so big that you can't remember that much of change, the village always carries such changes in form of stories, same as your's, same as my daughter will have.

When I see the future of Sanvi in you and childhood of your in Sanvi... I get mesmerized, I miss you and I wanna kiss your cheeks as I do to Sanvi and I want to tell you that once I was your baby and now you are my baby, the companionship of growing together gives us this knowledge that life is cyclic.

Visiting the self

It happens very very rare that we visit ourself, isn't it? Over a long journey of my self, I was always driving via choice-less-ness and I was not the decision maker, I was only following what I felt to do. When I was going through initial transition of my existence in the year of 1997, I was hungry for knowing myself, I was mad about self realization and enlightenment, and having that kind of burring desire paid a little, in my college time during 2001 to 2004, I have gone through experiences I had only imagined and read, and it was amazing and beautiful, but I was still empty. It was like thirst was thirsty, hunger was hungry, ocean was dry, more I explored, more madness I was getting.. and then something turned off. Today I am keen on building a company/business, I feel to realize the freedom, I must go through the attainment of it and I am sure that I will be able to realize that this is not what I wanted and my entire logic system would reset back and my path would re-instantiate.

But 100 degree Celsius is not the only reason to boil the water, water boils at each and every degree of change but it doesn't communicate, it manifest only at 100 degree. And every degree of change has exactly same importance as of 100 degree. Going through a masterpiece"If Truth Be Told, A Monk's Memoir", gifted by one of the mysterious person in my life "Naren", is another degree of change and this is transcendental, thanks a lot Naren for returning my mirror, which I had sort of lost in my way of foolishness, but now I'll try my best to keep the equilibrium.

Life is never a goal, it's just a journey... and our journey is from puppet to observer.

Body is an extension of mind


Body is an extension of mind, but only for those who have invented the mind. Mind is only invented through will, it's not something which is a brain. Mind is as of now sub-conscious power, but it has the ability to become conscious power. And watching the body with full conscious mind is an experience of growth, evolution of life. We all are hungry for that power, but we never invent it. In fact psychiatrist have accepted that there is no possibility of something beyond the body and brain, which is an ultimate misery... the loss of very possibility of evolution. Will is the answer and experience that there is something called mind and you'll realize that Body is just an extension of mind.


Understand the darkness


When you try to understand the darkness by closing your eyes, you won't be able to experience it. You'll definitely experience something, but it won't be darkness, it would be perception of incapability to perceive light which is a treason, a falsely... Darkness also exist, it's more like a umbrella cover, if you want to get wet entirely, you've to be naked, you've to really see it, the darkness. You've to experience how the nothingness imbibes you, envelopes you.

59, Cascading Meadows

  



When humanity start thinking that we are different than our surroundings, the nature; we create a clear separating line and that's where city lives. There is only one difference in village and city is village is a place people stay within nature and in city, we hijack the nature and throw her out of city. And then for few people it become obvious to create the mental space of village within a city, and people call it community, apartment, villas. But you can easily find the humans overruling over the nature in such crafted artificial villages. Cascading meadows is remarkably peculiar in all those definitions, the moment you cross the line, you feel like you belong to a village, the kind of roads, trees, soil, scent, air ..... it's just a village.

Cascading meadows is a village inside the city, Bangalore.



It's full of silver woods in a big array making visually beautiful as well as it gives a feeling of being over a small mountain, it's so lovely to walk on these paths.




The home starts not only at the #59, it starts right at the gate of cascading meadows. And the entire campus is nothing but the expansion of #59. Yes #59 is special for me because cascading meadows is one the finest space to eat, drink and sleep. Within cascading meadows #59 is the finest location to live. Yes I can only show my gratitude to provide me such opportunity to stay at #59, and yes #59 is my current house number within Cascading Meadows.





The home #59 is something really special and it's great architecture, well designed and created with love. The lawn, the plants, the flower, the banana tree, the Ashoka tree and the the balcony, the Hall, the exterior premise... everything is so good that it make you fall in love with the place.

When the morning starts walking with sunrise at our doorstep, there is a perfect place to ask the sun to give you a heat massage and as the sun walks through half the circle of home, it's behave like Sun is taking care of it, each and every moment, it keeps on looking the home, caresses it, kisses it.


And few evening, I've got the chance to look at the sun when it's saying bye bye, it looks so magnificent, it's so attractive, there is no word for it, it's like attaining peace. And best part of evening is, entire nature understand that its evening, the trees, the sky, the birds and the humans.



लोग दीवारों के बीच रहते हैं 
और शहर की दीवारें 
लोगों के बीच रहती है,

पहले लोग धरती पे रहते थे 
और अब लोगों ने धरती को 
आकाश पे रख दिया है,

मनुष्यता की प्यास,
धरती से आकाश 
और आकाश से धरती की तरफ 
दौड़ती रहती है,

कभी कभार 
ऐसा होता है की 
रहने के लिए 
क्षितिज पे घर बनाया जाता है, 

#५९, कैस्केडिंग मीडोज... 

और मैं सम्पूर्ण समर्पित हूँ 
की मुझे कुछ वक़्त 
यहाँ बिताने मिला है 
आभार ... 

Log deewaron ke beech rahte hain
aur shahar ki deewarein 
logon ke beech rahti hai,

Pahle log dharti pe rahte the
aur ab logon ne dharti ko
aakash pe rakh diya hai,

Manushyata ki pyas
dharti se aakash
aur aakash se dharti ki taraf
daudati rahti hai...

kabhi kabhar... 
aisa hota hai ki
rahne ke liye
kshitij pe ghar banaya jata hai,

#59, Cascading Meadows...

Aur main sampoorn samarpit hoon
ki mujhe kuchh vaqt 
yahan bitane ko mila hai
Aabhar...

Space to NoSpace




When we learn to know the space, we learn to know that there is no space. It's like, it exists in certain boundaries, it exists in the ignorance. The moment we come to know about it, which means we grow beyond space, it becomes irrelevant and we can say that there is nothing more than space, so there is no observer left to state there is space, because everything is space.

6 years story of HealthcareMagic from start to end


HealthcareMagic - When I heard this name in Dec 2008, the sound kept on tickling in my mind, I was more than excited to explore the opportunity and there were many reasons for it, like time, situation, destiny, all were falling in place. And I was driving myself choicelessly as it had happened many times in my life, this was going to write another chapter for me, where the subjects were pretty unknown to me but one thing I was carrying with me as my all time weapon, "Nothing is impossible".

Yes, I always wanted to build something which create a change in the system, which create a value in the system and working with Online Doctor 24x7 was a challenging and dream job for me. And I loved it from the core of my soul. I remember those initial months of 2009 and our fire in the belly to build something awesome and our infinite effort to grow it fast was commendable.

I want to thank many people in this journey and I really want to mention all of them. When I was almost naive and I had least of ideas to execute, I was very much thankful to get support from Rajaram and Abhishek Goyal. And in my initial team I must appreciate the effort of Akshat and Radhesh was very significant, miss you buddies.

Slowly we were touching a threshold of engineering effort on, what next? It was asking a big question, a mental catharsis, a psychological identity loss...But I knew that darker the night, I am gonna hit the ray soon, all I had to do is stay awake, stay patient, and It happened we achieved a great jump and I loved those many month hard work, kick-ass effort of my team, One photo of such memory definitely deserve this.

Gaurav, Prashant, Raghu, Shekhar, Rakshit (From left to right)

I am really thankful to all of you crazy guys Shekhar Sahu, Rakshit Begane, Gaurav Srivastava and Raghu Kishore. We should meet sometime for a karoake and booze, he he he :)

And then the 2nd phase came, when we formed a new direction of the team in the more focused style of business with the core effort of Krishnan Ramaswamy, Vikash Agarwal and Ashish Dhali. And I must accept the tremendous dedication created by Krishnan in the team was more than fire, it was high velocity wave, it was a sense of conviction to do it. I really want thank you guys from bottom of my heart to bring knowledge, experience and wisdom in me.

Rahul, Vikash, Krishnan, Ashish, Prashant

Rakshit, Gaurav, Krishnan
In my entire journey of HealthcareMagic there are definitely many more guys who taught me various things and helped me achieve a certain level. I am grateful to all of you people, but I want to do a special mention to my all time mentor Rajaram who has been putting fuel inside me from last 6 years and who has always given me direction to solve my all complex problem, thanks a lot for being with me.

And the final prayer of this story...
May the insanity and technology never dies...
May the love and passion remains in our blood...
May the grace and force be with us.

Ameen !!!

Me, Prashant (Nishal) signing off from HealthcareMagic.
