Save Rocks


Yesterday, I visited a fort in devarakonda with the Save Rocks group. It was a nice fort with well built facilities like, wells, lakes, cannon camps etc...

We had some rock climbing experts with us and they helped us to do bouldering. The fort is built surrounding five hills. All the water which flow down the hill is stored in small dams built under them. There were lot of paddy fields one side of the fort which gives a beautiful sight from the top of the hill (one of the five hills).

It was very relieving to see the nature full of rocks and greenery after being in Hyderabad containing lot of Traffic and Pollution. It takes 2 hours to reach the place from Hyderabad.

We need to save these forts (which showcase our natural heritage) and pass them on to the future generations.

Save Rocks Society: The aim of the society is to make people reliaze the beauty of rocks (which take millions of years to form naturally) to people and save them from destroying. In the effort of doing this, they organize trips to different places every month.

Every one can participate in these trips. They post the trip information in their website and also give an ad in the local newspaper.

  1. Heartfelt thanks for introducing me to Save Rocks. I've always been passionate about the wilds, and since I came to Hyderabad, I've been a big admirer of these lovely smooth boulders. It's sad the way they're disappearing from the face of Hyderabad. Let's do what we can to save them.

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana:

आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् ।
धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष: धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥

AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm |
dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH||

Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals. 

Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma. 

Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13):

रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः |
राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३||

raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH |
raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13

"Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world. [3-37-13]

Story about Samsara from Vidura in Maha Bharatha

From Sri Maha Bharatham - 11th Maha Parva (Stri Parva) - Jalapradanika Sub Parva - 5th Chapter

"Dhritarashtra said, ‘Tell me in detail everything about the ways of that intelligence by which this wilderness of duties may be safely covered.’

"Vidura said, ‘Having bowed down to the Self-create, I will obey thy behest by telling thee how the great sages speak of the wilderness of life. A certain brahmana, living in the great world, found himself on one occasion in a large inaccessible forest teeming with beasts of prey. It abounded on every side with lions and other animals looking like elephants, all of which were engaged in roaring aloud. Such was the aspect of that forest that Yama himself would take fright at it.

Beholding the forest, the heart of the brahmana became exceedingly agitated. His hair stood on end, and other signs of fear manifested themselves, O scorcher of foes! Entering it, he began to run hither and thither, casting his eyes on every point of the compass fo…

Not choosing is a choice

These are some of the quotes I found interesting on choosing.

You are your choices. 

It’s not about time, it’s about choices. How are you spending your choices?

Not Making a Choice is a Choice. 

Letting things happen by default is a choice. If we choose to give up our right to make a choice - we have made a choice.

“When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.” -William James

“A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.” — Hunter S. Thompson


In one sense choice is possible, but what is not possible is not to choose. 

You can always choose, but you must know that if you do not choose, that is still a choice.
