Pastor Wrinkles Quips & Quotes 2-7-16

  1. All moments are beautiful, only you have to be receptive and surrendering. All moments are blessings, only you have to be capable of seeing. All moments are benedictions. If you accept with a deep gratitude, nothing ever goes wrong.~ Osho

Posted on


Thanks Rochelle for the prompt and  © Erin Leary for the PHOTO PROMPT

5 February 2016



I was watching lilies, water and  beautiful scenery, with romance in my heart. 

 When will we get married honey?

 I have given four years to our relationship and now wanted to settle down with him.

 My father has threatened to kick me out of inheritance if I marry you. But, just because I promised you, I’ll marry you.

Regret in his tone was brimming out.

Just because you promised me and not because you love me?

 He mumbled something.

 Fuming I left.

 I haven’t heard a word from him since then.

 No,I did not push him in the pond.

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

7th Feb- Today’s word is 


Temperance to me means a real strong iron will or self-control. With this type of self-control one can win over his obsessions of not only alcohol but other vices too.

It surprises me when I see people going to off limit to get right fuel for their cars, bikes etc. but when it comes to their body, they gladly, without thinking or hesitation put any thing into it. Be it alcohol, fatty, unhygienic and spicy foods. They don’t love themselves actually.

Temperance is one quality with which you can control any obsession or vices you have. It seems difficult but is not impossible.

I have seen people spoil not only own but their family by too much drinking. They just need an excuse t drink. If they are sorry they drink, if they are happy they drink to celebrate.

I’m like John Burns, who says,

I neither drink nor smoke, because my schoolmaster impressed upon me three cardinal virtues; cleanliness in person, cleanliness in mind; temperance.” 


” Temperance is moderation in the things that are good and total abstinence from the things that are foul.”

Frances E. Willard

I also believe that,

” There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit; and there is no true beauty without the signatures of these graces in the very countenance.

‘ I love to drink, pure water.”

The Daily Post- Critical Eye

Posted on

Critical Eye

Write about the subject you usually blog about as if you were a music critic.

I loved music since childhood , any type of music. Classical, semi classical, filmy,non filmy, gazels, kavvali,  you name it and I love it. Only it has to be soft and melodious to my ears. I find singers, musicians and composers job very difficult. I can never do any of this job in my this life time so how can  i become a music critic without having knowledge of  every aspect music.

But, yes I can understand lyrics fully.

So if by any chance I have to become music critic I would choose the  lyrics as  my subject of criticism . especially Hindi film’s lyrics. Nowadays so many raunchy songs, some with meaningless words, some with slang has captured the market. They give these words a catchy tune, fine beats fit for dancing as they become hit.

One thing also surprises me a song is good if the lyrics are good or its music is good. They should be complementary to each other. What matters more?

Otherwise how come a song like,

“Why This Kolaveri Di”

yo boys i am singing song
soup song
flop song
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
rhythm correct
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
maintain please
why this kolaveri..di

distance la moon-u moon-u
moon-u color-u white-u
white background night-u nigth-u
night-u color-u black-u

why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di

white skin-u girl-u girl-u
girl-u heart-u black-u
eyes-u eyes-u meet-u meet-u
my future dark

why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di

maama notes eduthuko
apdiye kaila snacks eduthuko
pa pa paan pa pa paan pa pa paa pa pa paan
sariya vaasi
super maama ready
ready 1 2 3 4

whaa wat a change over maama

ok maama now tune change-u

kaila glass
only english..

hand la glass
glass la scotch
eyes-u full-aa tear-u
empty life-u
girl-u come-u
life reverse gear-u
lovvu lovvu
oh my lovvu
you showed me bouv-u
cow-u cow-u holi cow-u
i want u hear now-u
god i m dying now-u
she is happy how-u

this song for soup boys-u
we dont have choice-u

why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di
why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di

can become a super duper hit song of the year.

I believe lyrics of any song should be meaningful, delightful and inspiring.

There are many item songs with double meaning  are clouding the market.

Where are those melodious, meaningful,inspiring songs which use to take the story forward?

There is no dearth of poets like,  Neeraj, Pandit pradeep, Haivanshrai bachchan , Shailendra, Javed Akhata, Gulzar Prasoon Joshi, Irshad Kamil ……Ican give thousands of name here. 

Writers also mostly follow the trend of market and not the content. Jo bikta hai wo chalta hai. At the end of the day everyone wants to earn money. So until unless listener’s taste develops this trend will go on and my critics job will be successful as I’ll have lot more song to criticize.

The Daily Post- Second Time Around

The Daily Post- Second Time Around– Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

Not only one but any book by Osho is good enough to read again and again. His philosophy, simple way of explaining it and simple meditation Technics make him a wonderful read. All the quotes will certainly illustrate why i love to read him again and again.

Here are some quotes from his books which every one would find enlightening and delightful.

“Love is authentic only when it gives freedom. Love is true only when it respects the other person’s individuality, his privacy.”

“Don’t be bothered by perfection. Replace the word ‘Perfection’ by ‘Totality. Totality will give you a different dimension.”

“The only thing that matters in life, is your own opinion about yourself.”

“Don’t be angry at life. It is not life that is frustrating you, it is you who are not listening to life.”

“Life is not logic, life is not philosophy. Life is a dance, a song, a celebration! It is more like love and less like logic.”

“Intelligence never grows by imitation: Intelligence grows by experimentation. Intelligence grows by taking challenges.”

“You just listen to your own heart – that is your only teacher. In the real journey of life, your own intuition is your only teacher.”

On Parenting- 

” People misunderstand that loving their children is to cater to whatever they ask for. If you get them everything they ask for, it is stupidity, isn’t it? When you are loving, you can do just whatever is needed. When you truly love someone, you are willing to be unpopular and still do what is best for them.”

” What do you know about life to teach your children? A few survival tricks are the only things you can teach. Please compare yourself with your child and see who is capable of more joy? Your child, isn’t it? If he knows more joy than you, who is better qualified to be a consultant about life, you or him?

When a child comes, it’s time to learn, not teach. When a child comes, unknowingly you laugh, play, sing, crawl under the sofa, and do all those things that you had forgotten to do. So it is time to learn about life.”

” It is very important a child remains a child; there is no hurry to make him into an adult because you can’t reverse it later. When he is a child and he behaves like a child, it’s wonderful. When he becomes an adult and behaves like a child, that’s bad. There is no hurry for a child to become an adult.”

Osho Wallpaper

Osho’s ” Bhagawat Geeta Ka Manovigya(6 Vols set)”

& “Patanjali Yog Sutra (5 Vols)”

amongst his several books are very enlightening. They available in English also.

Enchant Your World Everyday-

Enchant your everyday- A month of loving the world

Today’s word is –

You breathe me in and out

So you think you are alive?                             

Asks air

Warming up in my rays

And lazing around

Calling it living 

Sun says, not fair.

Birds, bees, butterflies 

Hovering around

Ask are you alive?

To say yes, I don’t dare.

Humming they all say

Be active and alert 

Feel love for every creature

 Just get up and prepare

Now I really feel alive 

And thankful to everyone

I’m nothing without you all

I solemnly declare 

~ Indira


It takes great wit and interest and energy to be happy. The pursuit of happiness is a great activity. One must be open and alive. It is the greatest feat man has to accomplish.

Robert Herrick

“Just being alive is such a gift, but nobody ever told you to be thankful to existence. On the contrary, everyone was grumpy, complaining. Naturally, if everything surrounding your life from the very beginning goes on pointing out to you that you are not what you should be, goes on giving you great ideals that you have to follow and you have to become, your isness is never praised. What is praised is your future – if you can become someone respectable, powerful, rich, intellectual, in some way famous, not just a nobody.”~ OSHO

When you are THANKFUL for what you have, you are always rewarded with more. Stay POSITIVE and things will get BETTER.~ Unknown

“You think you are alive because you breathe air? Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. Die in Love and stay alive forever.” ~ Rumi

The Daily Post- Naked with Black Socks

Posted on

The Daily Post- Naked with Black Socks– Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?

I was very shy in my childhood. Meeting people, neighbours, even close relative like my granny and aunt would make me hide in the toilet till they went away.

Once my mother’s mother and aunt came to visit from another city and as usual I hid in the toilet and was literally dragged out to meet them.

Reason? I was not beautiful ant talented like my parents and two elder sisters. It took lots of counselling from my family to make me go out. My school played a great part to develop my self esteem. Their love and concern made me somewhat a little shy.

After father’s sudden demise I had to take a job. There my colleagues played a wonderful part in restoring my courage becoming little out spoken.

Though I was always very comfortable and jovial in my close friends, my sisters and my uncle.

I’m still not comfortable in public speaking. My first reaction be to hide in the bathroom but age and experience has taught me that if it’s necessary to take a stand for a right cause and right person I would not shy away comfortable or no comfortable I will speak my mind out.
