In Advait philosophy, it is not a desirable thing to draw portraits of Gods and Goddesses for worshiping them. There is a rational explanation to it. A good looking beautiful portrait is an artist’s efforts to represent an attractive work of art and nothing more. God is worshiped as all attractive one and no man of faith can deny this but the thing is external beauty is just an illusion. The real essence of beauty is felt by a tender heart. One can get attracted towards a fair skinned, sharp featured, rosy face. But if filthy or abusive talk is what you receive form that mouth, I am sure you will agree with me that you would not like to see that face again. So, what is beauty then? As the famous quote reveals “Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder”, is kind of misleading phrase. I would like to present it like this, that “Beauty is realized by a beautiful mind, with a tender heart”.
These days you would see some really magnificent portraits of Hindu Gods and Goddesses on social media. People from all over the world are cherishing such beautiful images. There is no doubt, some great artists have represented these with great devotion and fine work of hand. But type casting Gods or we may say Divinely beings in a particular attire or dress up, basically put seeker on a deluded path. You may find this as coinciding with Islamic view of non idol worship. Yes, in a way it is so, but at the same time Advait philosophy advocates non-violence and tolerance towards other faiths and ways of worship and life styles. Because of tolerant culture, idol worship and many faiths has existed in Hindu (* Hindu title is a misnomer, it just represents geographic location of people who worshiped god and taught the world about Godly way of life in olden times. In reality we “Hindus” call ourselves as eternal people “Sanatanies” and our land is called Bharat “A place to be divine and reach God-head”).
Recently, I came across an image of Lord Shiva, where in a Bollywood handsome dude is represented in the form of Lord Shiva holding the Trident up in air. At first that image made me giggle, as I was amazed at the mindset of that girl, who posted it. What she is pursuing? Is she a fan of Bollywood hunk or she is a devotee of Lord Shiva? These two words devotee and fan, might sound different, but the effect is same on mind vibes of the person. And when this phenomena crosses the bounds of mental Health, then the person is diagnosed as suffering with a religious mania or fan mania. None of these is good for Spiritual and physical harmonious growth of a man. People try to find business in every way of life and so is the way of Spiritual conquest. You will find people selling holy charms, pendants of deities, images of Gods and Goddesses and some even sell yantras for all kinds of life problems. Yantras for making money, Yantras for good sex life, Yantras to control somebody etc. etc. This is not limited to Hindu religion. You will find this malady in every religion. There may be some bush man who would give you dried blood of a rooster or some monk offering some kind of beads for physical well being etc. This business keeps on going unhindered and there is no law that can prevent a man to seek solace from hardship of this material world. Just like as a crying child can be brought at peace with fancy toys so is the childish mind of so called mature persons.
People say religion is just a way of life and the modern times have even discarded the need of one to live in a civilized manner keeping the horses of human will free but bound by the rope of social laws. I was talking about that girl, who posted an image of Bollywood actor as Lord Shiva posing with his sculpted shaped six pack body, on social media. I think she hasn’t heard the story about marriage of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati. It is a famous folk lore in rural India. People sing the about how Goddess Gauri saw Lord Shankra sitting in a deep meditation and fell in love with him. When her parents came to know about her choice of Lord Shankra as her groom then they describe his physical attributes as a horrible looking personality. Goddess Parvati’s father Daksha was King of a Himalayan state and aspired her to marry some handsome Prince or a kingdom. The King Daksha then ask her, how could she like an esoteric, renunciate, homeless wonderer, whose personality is horrifying, who lives out of city bounds, looks much older, has white hair on his head and beard, one who smears his body in ash of a pyre, one who lives half naked. Even in present times, in rural villages of northern part of India, ladies still sing about Lord Shiva’s marriage and say that “An old man has brought the marriage procession to marry a young princess”. We came to know this description of Lord Shankra from Sati’s father and one might wonder about the divine inclination of Goddess Gauri towards Lord Shankra, to accept him as her groom. These girls of glam fam times, who are fan of sculpted bodies of Hollywood – Bollywood actors would pass out screaming, at the mere sight of horrible looking Lord Shiva and not to forget the poisonous cobra curled up on his neck. I just laugh at such delusional glam fan girls, who tend to show themselves as spiritually inclined and talking about Kunadlini yoga etc. Their Lord Shiva has to be a handsome hunk. What can I say? Worldly people are under the spell of maya and they are acting their play accordingly and it’s a usual story.

In February 2015, I fought Local Government elections as an independent candidate for Mohali city. I wanted to prove the ideology, which I propagate through Bharat Udey Yug Kranti website (BUYK – Reformist Socio-Political Revolution in India). The basic ideology of BUYK movement advocates to discard party system for electing legislatures to Parliament and other governing bodies, while retaining the existing democratic framework of India. BUYK ideology advocates that a social activist should fight elections as an independent candidate and should be chosen on his merits and educational background.
I fought Mohali Municipal Corporation elections, self financed and self-managed, but I lost election to BJP candidate. I did not win Municipal Elections but learned some valuable lessons and came to know about the psychology of voters in India. It was shocking experience for me, as voters started demanding liquor from me for casting their votes in my favour. Some voters asked for supporting the structural violations, which they have done against the guidelines of civic architectural bylaws. Where as some discouraged me by saying that politics is not for honest and law abiding people, its gunda people who rule the roost.
Since. I was emotionally attached with Jan Lokpal andolan and was already actively supporting online campaigns in their support on 1st March, 2015 I joined Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) “Common Man’s Political Party in India”. In the mean while some internal conflict of AAP came to surface and party looked split apart in to two factions. On one side were close friends of Mr. Arvind Krjriwal (founder member of AAP, the nominated leader of AAP, one of the popular faces of Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal andolan) and on the other side people like Mr. Yogendra Yadav (founder member of AAP, an intellectual person, political thinker and analyst) and Mr. Prashant Bhushan (founder member of AAP, an intellectual person, big lawman, political activist, spokes person of Supreme court on TV). Even before Delhi Vidhan sabha elections, I was raising my voice against Mr. Kejriwal being made a celebrated leader at par with the leading faces of other political parties like Mr. Narendra Modi for BJP and Siniora Sonia Gandhi and mio amico Sinior Rahul Gandhi for Congress Party. After reviewing social media posts and watching so called sting videos on TV news channels, I realised that AAP and its “governing men” have divulged from Lokpal ideology, so I decided to resign from AAP membership on 30th March, 2015 and decided to go back to my political reformist agenda being propagated through BUYK website.

We understand your concern
Both Mr. Yogendra Yadav and Mr. Prashant Bhushan have been expelled from all the important decision making bodies of the AAP. Inspite of our best efforts, we have gone past the point of no return.
It was not just one or two isolated incidents that compelled Mr. Arvind Kejriwal to take this decision. A sustained campaign was being run to discredit Mr. Kejriwal and remove him from the post of party convener. In these circumstances, Mr. Kejriwal was left with no alternate choice and his decision had the backing of the overwhelming support of the majority of the NC members present in the meeting. The link below will give you a fair idea of the feelings of Mr. Kejriwal, before he took his final decision on the matter.
Despite of these tensions, Delhi government is working hard to fulfill all the promises
We hope you understand the situation.
Still if you want to resign let us know we will do the needful

AND HERE IS MY REPLY
Dear Mr. Shashi Kant Singhal Ji,
I understand your point and I have no doubt about Mr. Arvind Kejriwal ji’s honest working towards benefiting people of Delhi. Neither I hate him.
The thing is, your point of view is of a Loyal member of an organisation/Party, whereas my point of view is of a Patriot. My love for Motherland is beyond any party or personality. I am one of those people who were emotionally attached with Jan-Lokpal andolan. And this is not just a name tag. The dream of a rising nation always resides in my heart. Even when I was younger the term “Ram-Rajiya” coined by BJP, raised same hopes as is done by Jan Lokpal. We all want to build a nation of our dreams. Our dreams consists of Social and Economic just full society.
Economic corruption is just a single fault of many maladies of modern Government system. The dream to fulfill the objectives of Jan Lokpal can’t be realized by following the prevalent political culture of Authoritarian style of leadership, like we see in major Political parties of India. Our beloved Arvind Kejriwal has trodden the same path and is now disillusioned by unparalleled success of Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. But he should remember that people’s power is the force behind crowning and de-crowning of the Kings. If I had seen our comrade driving away from the fundamentals of Jan Lokpal ideology, I would have done the same like Yogendra Yadav ji and Prashant Bhushan ji did in Delhi elections 2015. I have mindset of a patriot soldier who fights under the command of another soldier for the sake of his motherland. And if he sees his commander deluded from the right path the patriot soldier takes his own stand.
I am thankful to my parents that they were not loyalist to any political party and am also raised to be free thinker. Sanatan Dharma based schools have inculcated patriotism in me. At present, Politically I am not a “crowd puller” so it is irrelevant for any party whether I remain their member or not. Though Atman says “Conscious is my play-ground and I build societies to my own benefit, for I come time and again to rise back to my full glory.” I think AAP will do fine without a “aam aadmi” like me. Please consider my resignation from Aam Aadmi Party membership.
Oh ! This is such a common task in India. “To search a phone number on Google.com”. Recently, I joined Aam Aadmi Party and posted my cell number (with which I use Whatsapp, other wise I own 4 cell numbers for other services like consultancy etc.) suddenly people started searching my number on Google.com. What google through up is latest classified advertisements posted on Quikr or olx.in
In those listings my mobile number shows up under data entry job listings. I would rather say or invite people to read my blog website at www.paramlowe.com or they can read my political ideology at www.buyk.org(which got a setback in Mohali Municipal Elections, which I contested as an independent candidate in February, 2015 and lost to BJP candidate). You can also see my efforts in Shaadiwala.com, isHere.in (aspired to be google of India) YSS “Yog Sadhna Shiksha” (http://yss.ishere.in) an effort to bring up the intellect level through yoga meditation techniques, among children who are not able to do well in studies and CallKey.in (Global Climate disaster prevention and management solutions) websites.

OMG! 45 days and still no refund from ShopClues.com website. I tell you shopping from ShopClues.com website was not less than a hellish experience for me. I have been purchasing items and gadgets from online shopping websites like eBay and Amazon etc since the last 7-8 years. Ebay has always stood by the side of Buyers and though there have been very few incidents of bad dealings at ebay.com or ebay India website but whenever there have been any purchase dispute with ebay merchants, eBay has always made a refund within a weeks time and even earlier in some cases and at times they offered me discount vouchers to compensate. I am an out ‘n out patriotic Indian. We feel our blood gushing to our nerves, when ever we shout Bharat Swabhiman slogan. We shout from strength of guts, against foreign companies suppressing our local business. But if our local business is in the hands of thugs like Sanjay Sethi and Sandeep Aggarwal who founded ShopClues.com then we have to think twice before trusting fully on our Indian businesses. Though am still against FDI in commodities and small scale consumer focused business sector, like retail and cultural food and consumables. On the other hand am very much in favour of welcoming advanced technologies and health and fitness related products in India.
I was talking about my worst ever experience in online shopping website ShopClues.com. Man! I warn you to never visit their website, even by mistake. It will be better, if you program your mind that the word ShopClues.com have NULL value. Its total waste of money and time. Can you imagine calling twice or thrice daily for more than 45 days to an outstation landline telephone incurring STD call charges? Worst thing is their automated system keeps you on hold for more than 3 minutes before it connects with an agent. And what you hear from those agents, is pre-written tele-calling script.
“We surely help you Sir. Please allow 48 to 72 hours to resolve this issue. Please wait 48 hours we will revert back to you soon. Your concern is set on priority. Your concern has been forwarded to refund department. Please wait 48 hours”.
Imagine they have 400 agents and every time you have to hear same script in new voice till you get connected with each of them. You keep on waiting for phone call or email from ShopClues.com but gets nothing. Yeah ! no email, no sms/text and no phone call either. They just wish their “internet based looting business” should keep on getting new customers. I humbly advise you never buy anything from ShopClues.com website. They are Thugs!!

The ShopClues.com company maintains 3 offices in India to run their fraudulent business:
Recently I shared my 4 GB SanDisc pen drive for transferring some data from my PC to a laptop. I knew that the laptop was infected with viruses. I did not hesitated about sharing my pen-drive because I was quite confident that AVG antivirus will take care of any migrant virus. I generally use AVG Free for home use version. Its as good as paid version of Norton AntiVirus and McAfee Anti-Virus software. If at any time the viruses doom all anti-virus software, I switch to Linux OS, mainly to Ubuntu OS or Kubuntu OS.
When I got my pen drive back it showed all folders as shortcuts and AVG detected malicious programs on it. After AVG scanned my pen-drive and applied preventive measures all the data disappeared from pen drive. At first I thought of formatting the pen-drive but on second thought, I searched google for recovering data from virus infected pen-drive and got a working solution. Which I am sharing here in this blog post for you and for my own reference in future. Assuming that your computer is run on windows platform like Win XP, Win 7, Windows 8 etc. Step 1. Click Start > then choose RUN. (basically open command prompt window) Step 2. type CMD in open command form. Step 3. type cd.. and press enter till you reach C:/ only Step 4. type your pendrive letter (find the drive letter in windows explorer) e.g. C:/ E: and then press enter Step 5. You will see E:\> in command window. now type this line attrib -h -s /s /h *.* and press enter
Now wait for 1 to 2 minutes and then open your pen drive in My Computer window. hopefully you will see all the data is still present in your pen drive.
Further update :
if you got invalid switch – /h error on above command that means your USB drive has created a shortcut link and all files have been moved under that link. If you face this problem with your USB drive then follow these steps as mentioned here under
Step 1. Click Start > then choose RUN and type CMD in open command form. (basically open command prompt window) Step 2. if your USB drive letter is E drive under My Computer window, then you need to type E: and press Enter key. Now you will see E:/> which is the USB drive inside the command prompt. Step 3. type del *.lnk and press Enter key this will delete all files with the extension of a shortcut Step 4. type attrib -h -r -s /s /d E:*.* and then press Enter. It will change the attributes of all the files and you will see a name less folder icon in your USB drive Step 5. double click that folder and you will all the files in that folder
From above command line it is clear that AVG antivirus alters the folder’s view properties.
