WHO IS RICHARD PARKER?

FOR THOSE BLOGGERS WHO HAVE SEEN THE ENGLISH MOVIE ‘LIFE OF PI’ 2013, THE CHARACTER ‘RICHARD PARKER’IS NOT UNFAMILIAR TO THEM. HE IS THE FEROCIOUS BENGAL TIGER, CAGED IN A ZOO IN INDIA AND LATER BY PROVIDENCE, HE FINDS HIS ‘FREEDOM’ AFTER A CATASTROPHIC SHIPWRECK BUT HE IS STRANDED AT SEA ON A LIFE BOAT WITH A YOUNG INDIAN BOY, PISCINE PATEL AKA ‘PI.’ TOGETHER, THEY FACE NATURE’S MAJESTIC SPLENDOUR AND FURY ON AN EPIC JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY.

THE MOVIE ‘LIFE OF PI’, THE WINNER OF 4 ACADEMY AWARDS, IS BASED ON THE NOVEL OF THE CANADIAN AUTHOR YANN MARTEL.’LIFE OF PI’. ACCORDING TO YANN MARTEL,THE STORY CAN BE SUMMARIZED IN THREE STATEMENTS-

  1. LIFE IS A STORY
  2. YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR OWN STORY
  3. A STORY WITH GOD IS THE BETTER STORY

I HAVE READ THE BOOK AND I HAVE WATCHED THE MOVIE MANY TIMES. I CONTINUE TO BE TOTALLY IMPRESSED BY THE BENGAL TIGER, RICHARD PARKER. HE MADE MANY ATTEMPTS TO DEVOUR THE YOUNG BOY, PI ,BUT THE LATTER FOUGHT HIM, FED HIM AND KEPT HIM ALIVE. IN THE END, WHEN THEY DRIFTED ON AN ISLAND, RICHARD PARKER TURNED HIS BACK ON PI AND LEFT HIM WITHOUT SAYING GOOD BYE.

WHO ARE YOU GOD?

WHO ARE YOU, GOD?

I touch your cheek,

I look into your eyes,

I see the pain,

I see the suffering.

You touch my cheek,

You look into my eyes,

You see the pain,

You see the suffering.

I am not your wife,

You are not my husband,

I am not your mother,

You are not my son.

Who am I?

Who are you?

I am the God within,

You are the God within,

You and I are ONE,

We are GOD!

My Journey with God

HAPPY 2013

One year has left

Another has stepped in

It all happened so suddenly

In a blink of the eye

Did I love you enough, my dear friend?

Did I say it often enough?

Time waits for none

But love stands the test of time

God has blessed me with this life

And, you as my friend

Trust in my love and friendship

You are God’s gift to me

You live in my heart

I love you

I wish you plenty of everything you desire in 2013

Happy New Year, my dear friend!

HAPPY 2012

Thought for the Day

 

 God is allowing mankind to destroy the earth. Only when mankind is brought down on his knees, will he turn towards God (Sai Baba) – Isaac Tigrett Dallas Discourse 2009

GOD GIVE GRACE

 

God’s Grace, like rain water, falls on all recipients equally

The flower-pot, the empty tin, the reservoir, the gutter

Do not blame God if our pot is upside down

When Grace is pouring
