For God Sake ...Please Stop

Today I would like to ask you one question..
Does god also need advertisement… Branding…in short all marketing things…
I don’t think so then why we all do so.. .. I received a message stating
This message is directly coming from Shirdi Sai Baba Mandir. Pass on to 10 people something good will happen with you, doesn’t break the chain otherwise u will be in trouble."
Another one… Mata Ke navratrey me yeh shubh sandesh hai jo maa ke darbarse aaya hai, isey aagey 11 logo ko bhejo, kuch acha hoga 24 ghantey ke andar….

Now can anybody tell me why we all send these messages..it’s not that you are dedicated toward god, it is superstition…God never want any marketing or advertisement.
I m very religious as well as spiritual but that does not mean that I should start doing all this.
If you don’t take god name can god harm, you…. No….it’s wrong..does our parents can see us in pain, they can give us pain…. No ……

I keep almost every fast but that does not mean I should start distributing these kinds of messages and mails.
This is not limited up to messages….emails, letters n I don’t know what all they are doing…
I request you to stop all this.. just throw away your superstition…
I wonder after sometime somebody will not attack on blog with this and we all keep on sending blogs to each other with these notes….
Happy Navratrey… I would like to request again…that we should not indulge ourselves in all these things…


On ending note I would like to tell you one other thing about my boss….as I m on fast he asked me why are wearing this ‘Tikka’… I said becase I m on fast
He said: you should not wear this, remove it.
I just smiled ( Excuse me!! I don’t care ).


P.S: Sorry due to exam I was not that much active, I have missed some of my friends blogs…

Priya Joyce said...

well i've got many such messages too..never passed it on....its because of superstition..that sumthng mite happen to us...

actually not us..they say something mite happen to our loved ones..well those who ren't superstitious even get scared wen it comes to people they love....
we need a li'l courage that's all

Creativity!! said...

Hmm..Good Post:)

Even I'm also supertitious:) but I never forwaded such mails/msgs eventhough I ve recd:) We r not here for marketing or advertising gods[as u said]..I agree vth this:) being being literates, behave themselves as illiterates:) They dont even bother to take these mails/msgs in +ve manner..rather, they get scared and take it in -ve manner, assuming themselves, that if they don't fwd then some -ve happens to their Loved one's..

Exams, r extremely important..If u miss some of the posts of friends, that doesn't matter, bcoz u will find ample of time to read, whereas for exams, u don't..so concentrate on studies & exams first....Exams, graduations, post graduations, gives a colorful and independent stage or the platform for us to stand on our own foot:)

Anyways, hope u ve extremely done well in your exams:) nothing to worry:) U will get Distinction..

What matters for your boss, if u wear tilak?? I didn't understand that:( there exist some ppl who being highly qualified behaving as though they r fit for nothing:) hope ur boss doesn't come across this comment:) All The Very Best Success:) Have a Nice Day:)

Thanks a Lot for dropping by :)

I liked ur blog a lot:) u express day2day happenings in a very heart touching manner with simple phrases :)

Keep Blogging:) Very Very Good:) Excellent:) Keep It Up:)

Pallav said...

Creativity!! ..

nonetheless i agree with ur thought yes exams r improtant n bcz of exams n studies we stand somewhr in r our life.

i m thankful for ur true heart wishes.. n appranetly i even dnt knw why he has prblm with tilak...
the fact is he has prblm with his own life...

Pallav said...

Harshita....
Sweety circuit hila nahi hai... infact hai hi nahi....

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Hmm its funny na...
many educated dumb people do this in fear of those warnings they get in the mail...

Good one...
mujhe sai baba aur tirupathi venkateshwara ke bahut mails aate hai..
Abhi bhi aate...
:(

Good going..

Cheers

Chaarz said...

Even i receive these kind of messages very frequently..And honestly speaking i never forward them...Somehow i don't feel the urge and the need of doing so.. I feel there's a thin line between being RELIGIOUS and SUPERSTITIOUS..I trust the divine power and I know it cannot harm me in anyway..

Nice Post..

yamini meduri said...

huh,...these messages really irritate yaar...and you are true..God needs nothing except the respect we give to him..!!!

Mayz said...

Pallav said...

Hello Pallav :- Oh since ur Boss has probs with personal life, he is mentally killing his sub-ordinates:) Now u need not worry, since u ve completed Mcom.Now U will be the boss and under u, ppl will be wrkg as per ur instruction and orders..that doesn't mean that, u should take revenge on ur sub-ordinates.instead u tc of them as kids..then they will ever grateful to u:)

Heart congratulations pallav:) u ve reached to Hierarchy:)

Ever Never grade urself..Rather, encourage, motivate urself, even when some1 close to your heart or very extremely closely r related to u, degrades u..That's The way how 1should deal with his/her life:)

God, has created us and he is the supreme to take decision or frame our future..everything will be in his hands..only thing is, with self-Determination ,Effort & hard work, we should try to find out the way to success by struggling hard..Then God definitely help us to do it by making us cross the path of Thorns and directly stepping on a Red Carpet:)

Creativity!! said...

sorry its a typing error.. Ever Never grade urself.

I wanted to say, EVER NEVER DE-GRADE URSELF.Rather, encourage, motivate urself, even when some1 close to your heart or very extremely closely r related to u, degrades u..That's The way how 1should deal with his/her life:)

Vaise whenver somebdy orwards me these kinds of messages,i just ignore it:)
I love wearing tikka and i sometimes wear it apart from any religious ceremony also!!!
:):)
take care..

Dhanya said...

I get loads of such mails and messages. But the little superstitious part of me makes me ignore the message altogether!That way, I can assure myself that I won't be getting any bad luck by NOT reading the full thing :P

Sam said...

hey this kinda email shud just be categorized as spam and nothing more than that.....

they r not only irritating but they also question the religious beliefs!!

Swetha Padakandla said...

yeh, i used to get irritated too whn receive such mails..
just a few months back i too was forwarding.. :P thn at last decided not to fall into these kind of stupid thngs!

and now, honestly i have stopped doing tht..
nicely written!!

swetha

Kunjal said...

Phoenix said...

mar kar dena plz :P :)


btw template is rocking..!! :)

Arnab Majumdar said...

Interesting post, with an interesting viewpoint. Although, it's debatable what the point of that person was, who started the chain messages. Maybe for him, it was a sign of devotion using technology... and religion ultimately thrives on Devotion itself.

It's just your take on the subject in the end I guess, no right or wrong about this really :) again, that's just my take on this particular subject...

Cheers man, keep writing...

Pallav said...

Arnab Majumdar...
yes arnab may be for him..
but can u tell me why thr is threat...

i mean he/she whatevr can simply send this as a msg like we have odr msgs..why he threats to odr tht pls fwd..

yes exactly it my take.. i dnt knw his/her view..
thanks a trillion for dropping by..after such long time...
i felt out of the world...
hehehe

cheers:)

Arnab Majumdar said...

I'll be honest here, 'coz I think honesty really is the best policy.

I don't think this is a threat of any kind, it's a simple message that you can delete, and get on with your life without it ever affecting you. If you think this is a mythical/religious/superstitious threat, then you're still to taste the realities of life and the threats that come with it. His viewpoint is to spread what he believes, and he's definitely not coercing you into doing anything that you don't wish to do.

These things, looked at from a broader perspective, are tiny. There are many bigger threats in the world, and cribbing about little incidents like this doesn't change the world in the least.

I hope you can understand my perspective, and also understand that I'm definitely not asking you to agree with it.

Cheers...

bondgal_rulz said...

Different post....

And dude your boss sounds like such a pain.

Anyway, hope taht your exams went well.

Cheers

Pallav said...

off course arnab..
Honest is best policy .. n i appreciate... but my view is..it can be doen without any hurting intentions...n it is emotional blackmail...n compulsion for person..it become mandatory for them to pass on bcz they think something bad will occur.

probably u right...but i differ i must say..being relgious it doent mean v shld inculcate ourselves in these things and start doing ths thing...

n here this fear..fear of loosing..fear of something bad which can happen if he/she dngt fwd....

liked ur view...
thanks for comment...

Pallav said...

Isha....
:) thanks...
yes my boss is real pain,
who have no shame..
he always gv me a blame...
plays lot of politics game
but i think he is a insane
hehehe......

cheers:)

Kartz said...

I absolutely *loved* that pic. *brings back memories of Durga poojo* Saved it, ipso facto. Thanks!

And the post - heh heh heh, humans are a strange kind, bro'. U know it. It's all the more funnier when u discuss the concept of God and religion in forums. U ll find a lot more nonsense, superstition not withstanding.

People will never learn. Period.

*hope ur "plea" reaches the needful!*

And does ur boss need a life? Please ask him to get one...

Tc. Good luck.

Peace. Have a nice day.

Creativity!! said...

@ Pallav :_ Its great that, u r highly interested in studies..All The Very Best Success for ur personal as well as professional life:)

B'coz of this recession, I feel govt job is secured..Even RBI pay is good..for further info abt grades/ entrance exam visit, www.rbi.org.in

or u can mail me at rp.sahana@gmail.com

I shall explain abt that RBI exam in detail in the mail :) [if u wish to]

Have a Nice Day:) TakeCare..Bye:)

Arnab Majumdar said...

Replying to your views, I don't think any hurting intentions put in the form of a message, and then forwarded to someone whom you hardly know, can actually hurt someone. You brought about the point of literacy and education... anyone who owns a cell phone would be a literate, enough to at least read and understand that message, and even if they believe it and forward it to ten more people, the cellphone messages do not have that power to hurt you.

I doubt anyone is really afraid of these messages, at least I'm blessed enough never to have run into people who believe these kind of messages.

I hope I've made myself a little clearer here...

Cheers...

Pallav said...

Kartz...
thanks man...
see whenever u write "Peace"..
i reaally hv this...

Cursed♪♫ said...

Hey!
Seriously on my orkut and facebook people keep sending me these kinda scraps. they are really irritating. :D
Okay, great to know that you didn't obey your boss! You really call him a boss!?! :P
Glad you like my blog. Hope you always like it! Thanks for your sweet comment!
Tada!

Divya said...

Very true Pallav....these frwd are irritating like anything....one need to have faith and respect, that's it....this fwd msgs are not more than earning few good amt that these service provider get when such kind of chain msgs are fwded.

Pallav said...

Cursed♪♫...
thanks for ur comment..
Pleasure is always mine.

Pallav said...

Divya...
Thanks a tonn.. for dropping by...

yes n i hv read somewhr these msgs r only created ny ths people so tht they can earn more n meet thier targets...

thanks u liked my blog n for ur valuable comment..
wud like to see uu in future too..

workhard said...

Hi pallav.. that is so true.. Why do people do that... if a person really wants to propogate his or her religion, then they should do it in person and not through sms and emails... they should set up religious organizations... i guess they kinda feel it easier to send the message through text.. but it definitely is not appropriate

Pallav said...

workhard ...
thanks a ton....
yes i u believe me i hate it.....

thanks for lovely comment
Pallav
