Death, at 60

Continued from the series I, at 60; Relations, at 60; Money, at 60 and Medical Practice, at 60

Am I ready to die? The answer is yes and no. If given choice, I don’t want to die before my father. If so is allowed, I want to be with him serving till his last breath and yes, then I am ready.

Actually, I had sorted out my wishes during my terminal illness where I am unconscious regarding 1. Organ donation, body donation and eye donation, 2. Treatment schedule especially telling when they should be stopped, 3. Protocols to be followed at the time of death and 4. Formalities not to be observed after my death and enlisted them. But then I suddenly realized the futileness of such exercise and accordingly, I have omitted all as a mark of respect to my concerned ones.
I am sure I have no expectation whatsoever before, during and after my death.

To conclude...
  • I am happy.
  • I have no regrets.
  • I am ready to face whatever situation arises and do what I think right at that moment.
  • I want to relax - have a pause - then start a social service activity in Ophthalmology to serve the needy in my way of doing so.
  • I want to read a lot and write my impressions on life, spirituality and ophthalmology.
  • I have a grand treasure of love, good wishes and blessings. I want to distribute to all around without any discrimination.

Anavils - An Endangered Community

After Parsis, Anavils (Anavil Brahmins, અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why?

Because,
   - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

What is Karma?

Karma is work or energy going out in the form of 1. Thought, 2. Word and/or 3. Action. Resultant return of energy is in the same amount known as Bhagya (Destiny). The role of God is to ask you to do Karma and to help you to do RIGHT karma. Then whatever good/bad karma you do, the result is accordingly and entirely your responsibility. Because the result is Destiny (Bhagya). So don’t blame anyone else or God for anything bad. Do not try to blame someone responsible for your own deed and its result.

ચાલો, જાણીએ દક્ષિણ ગુજરાતના અનાવિલોને

આપણે કહી શકીએ કે આપણો ઈતિહાસ કમસેકમ 5000 વર્ષ જુનો છે. દક્ષિણ ગુજરાતના અનાવલ (ત્યારે અનાદિપુર તરીકે પ્રખ્યાત) ખાતે ભગવાન રામને રાવણ જેવા બ્રાહ્મમણના વધના પ્રાયશ્ચિત માટે પાપ ધોવા માટે મહાયજ્ઞ કરવાની જરૂર પડી ત્યારે હનુમાન આપણા પૂર્વજોને આયોધ્યાથી અનાવલ લાવ્યા હતા ત્યારથી આપણે અજાચક્ર બ્રાહ્મમણો કે અનાવિલ તરીકે ઓળખાઈએ છીએ. હકીકતમાં, આપણે અફઘાનિસ્તાનથી આવેલા આર્યો છીએ.બિહારના મગધ રાજ્યના રાજ્યકર્તા તરીકે પણ આપણા પૂર્વજો ઓળખાયા છે. અનાવિલ રાજા “પૂત્રક” નાગકન્યા “પાટલી” સાથે લગ્ન કર્યા પછી રાજધાની તરીકે “પાટલીપૂત્રક” શહેર વસાવે છે જે આજે પટના તરીકે ઓળખાય છે. તેથી જ આપણા જેવા બુદ્ધિશાળી અને નેતા ચાણકય ઉર્ફે કૌટિલ્ય પણ અનાવિલ હોવાનું મનાય છે.અનાવલ રાજ્ય જે વ્યારા, મહુવા, વાંસદા, અને ચીખલી તાલુકા સુધી વિસ્તરેલું હતું તેના રાજા અનાવ…
