Attachment in Detachment

 Attachment in Detachment ----- Written by Sudha Murti

When my daughter, the older of my two, wed and left home, I felt a part of me gone.

With a daughter and a son, I know what both mean, differently.

When she was in her teens I felt as if she was my "physical extension" !

So when she left home to set up her own, I felt I lost a limb.

Next time she came to stay with us, I was astonished how her priorities had changed.

We too must've given the same shocks to our own parents !

When she said Amma,
she meant her mother-in-law, not me!

I felt she was always in a hurry to go back to her house and not stay with me for a few more days.

 That was the first time, it dawned on me that I have to start practising detachment with attachment.

Two years after my daughter’s marriage, my son left for higher studies to US.

Having experienced a child's separation once, I was better equipped emotionally.

I plunged head long into various classes held in the city starting from vedanta to healing to ikebana -
 I just wanted to be away from home..since my husband was a 24/7 workaholic.

My son used to write how he was missing my home cooked food, how he was waiting to come back to live in Chennai with us ...

After a few years, he did come back and we got him married.

He started living separately with his wife and we were also happy that they wanted to be independant from the beginning...

But now, it was all changed !

When in the U S, he missed my cooking, now if I called him to come over with his wife for a meal, it was always some excuse like "oh, amma, we have other plans for the day, please don't mistake us if we don't drop in today" !

I could see that his priorities had also changed completely..

We talk so many things and give so much advice to others, but when it comes to our own children, acceptance comes very late. Our next step is to just leave them undisturbed
in every way.

It was at that time, that I made the following, my 'new profile'.

In all my relationships , rather interactions, I give my best and do my best to live up to what I say.

My attachment with them is complete.

However, I remain detached in the sense that I do not expect them to reciprocate my affection.

Most importantly, I make a conscious effort , not to interfere or pass judgements on the lives they choose to lead.

My concern for my near and dear ones will not fade with my detachment.

If you let go of the ones you love, they will never go away –
this is the beauty of attachment with detachment !

I have learnt to love and let go.

This dictum has developed tolerance in me.

When I let the people live the way they want to, I learn to accept them for what they are.

Most importantly ,
I learn to tolerate the world around me and this tolerance brings in me a sense of peace and contentment.

Since both my children live in Chennai, I follow this very strictly, you know why !

Now I have realised that we start growing mentally much more only after the children leave the house and we have to tackle the emotional vacuum, that arises, along with age-related problems .

I specially dedicate this post to my  friends, who are  totally  dependant  on their  children's lives, to nurture their  own  selves  emotionally.

Please develop your  own  intersts, hobbies  etc, however mundane they  seem to be..

We must learn
To love whatever  we  do
instead of
Doing whatever we love

Raatan Tata.

NOT ..!!! "
Lines by Raatan Tata.

Few months after 26/11, Taj group of Hotels owned by TATAs
launched their biggest tender ever for remodeling all their Hotels
in India and abroad. Some of the companies who applied for that tender were also Pakistanis. To make their bid stronger, two big industrialists from Pakistan visited Bombay House ( Head office of Tata ) in Mumbai without an appointment to meet up with Ratan Tata since he was not giving them any prior appointment. They were made to sit at the reception of Bombay house and after a few hours a message was conveyed to them that Ratan Tata
is busy and can not meet anyone without an appointment.
Frustrated, these two Paki industrialists went to Delhi and thru their High Commission met up with a Minister. The minister Anand Sharma immediately called up Ratan Tata requesting him to meet up with the two Paki
Industrialists and consider their tender "enthusiastically ". Ratan Tata replied..."you could be shameless, I am not" and put the
phone down. Few months later when Pakistani government placed an order of Tata Sumo's to be imported into Pakistan, Ratan Tata refused to ship a single vehicle to that country. This is the respect and love for motherland that Ratan Tata has. Something that our current Politicians should learn from. Hats off to you sir..
Awake Country men, the Nation is above everything else.

👍✌ Pl circulate if u approve Mr Ratan Tatas Behaviour

HOW TO READ BAR CODES... (everyone must know)


With all the food and pet products now coming from China,
it is best to make sure you read label at the supermarket and especially when buying food products.
Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located.
The whole world is concerned about China-made "black-hearted goods".

Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ?
The world is also concerned about GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) foods; steroid fed animals (ex: 45 days old broiler chicken).

It is important to read the bar code to track its origin.
How to read Bar Codes....
interesting !

If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA.

471 is Made in Taiwan .

If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 00-09 then it's made or sourced in USA.

This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public,
therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA",
so they don't show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode -

Remember if the first 3 digits are:
890......MADE IN INDIA
691, 692 ... then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 - 09 ...
30 - 37 ...
40 - 44 ...
471 ........
45 or 49 ........
50 ..........
57 .........
471......... is Made in TAIWAN (see sample)
740..........745 -

All 480 Codes are Made in the PHILIPPINES.

Lay man's Thinking

Lay man's Thinking

An engineer in a car manufacturing company designs a world class car.
The owner is impressed with the outcome and praised him a lot.
While trying to bring out the car from the manufacturing area to the office they realised that the car is few inches taller than the entrance.
The engineer felt bad that he didn't notice this one before creating the car.
The owner was amazed on how to take it outside of the manufacturing area.
The painter said that they can bring out the car and there will be a few scratches on top of the car that he will do the tinkering later on.
The engineer said that they can break the entrance and after taking the car out, they can cement it.
The owner was not convinced with any ideas and felt like it is a bad sign to break or scratch.

The watchman was watching all the drama and slowly approached the owner.
He wanted to give an idea if they had no problem.
They wondered  what this guy would tell them that the experts could not give.

Watchman said that The car is only a few inches taller than the entrance so if they release the AIR in the tyre, the height of the car will be adjusted and can be easily taken out.

Everyone clapped!!

Don't encounter problems from the expert point of view.
There is always a LAYMAN point that will gives the best solution in a given point of time...
Life issues are also  same.
Many a time a friend's entrance door fall short by few inches, we feel taller!!
Release some air (ego) and adjust the height.
Think  simple...
Do simple...
& Live simple.
