It is a diary of a nine-year-old. Rather, a random recollection of a young boy living in a metro city with his small family, of an elder brother, father, mother, and a grandmother. His age is that of exploring and of figuring out the world in his head. We have all been through this age; of which we carry many bittersweet memories of growing up. When our minds posed endless questions, and we were fascinated by the world and the adventure of discovering it. There was an unquenching curiosity to learn more and more about our surroundings, about things big and small and the people around us. Our young lad’s mind seeks beyond the barriers of linear logic. Like, if one is short-tempered, how short is short, and how do you measure how short? And if there are short-tempered men, what about the long-tempered ones? What if a man bit like a dog, do we chain him? Why do they only teach about wars in history? Why not the fun part; like the jokes of those times or about the biggest joker of all times? Do the gluttons have a hungry spirit in their tummy, devouring all they have eaten? Why do moms find good-looking women not so good-looking and downright ugly if the dads call someone beautiful? Why is it so difficult to understand a girl, especially a smart one? Why do we kids have our ears pulled and not our noses? And if one ear gets pulled more often, wouldn’t it turn longer than the other? Why don’t the house-helps and servants get to eat the savories like the rest of us? Why can’t the boys use pink erasers? Why is it impossible for us to hear our snore? And so on and on. We all have experienced such nutty questions buzzing in our heads.
Kuchh Atpati Kuchh Chatpati is an engaging odd and spicy recollections of a pre-teen. It is an assortment of fifty-five pint-size stories that will take you on a journey to your past, to the days when the world was not so complicated and not so combative. When every little thing delighted us. And we lived in a small and complete world, where it was easy to find happiness and where we felt secure and cared for. I am tempted to call this small collection an urban version of ‘Malgudi Days’.
This book titled, “Quantum Physics of Consciousness and Non-duality in Eastern Philosophy” is based on the correlation of the author’s six decades of interest and practices in ‘Eastern Spirituality’ and nearly four decades of learning in ‘Quantum Physics’. One can divide this book into four broad sections: The first section (Chapter 1) consists of ‘Introduction’ (in which the terms: Consciousness, Non-duality, and Eastern Philosophy are briefly introduced). The second section (Chapters 2-8) deals with non-duality in Hinduism (Vedanta, Upanishads, Brahma Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and many more Vedantic philosophies). The third section (Chapters 9-14) describes non-duality in Buddhism (in India, China, Tibet, Korea, Zen, and Taoism). The fourth section (Chapters 15-16) justifies the title of this book by explaining Consciousness and Non-duality with the help of Quantum Physics and Eastern Philosophy. The author sincerely believes that a book of this nature will go a long way in bridging the gap between these diversified topics. The readers interested in this subject will find this book highly fruitful.
