Dear Mr. God,

I don't know if the customary 'I hope this letter finds you in the pink of health' with which I used to begin all informal letters I used to write for English Language tests in class 4 ,shall suffice or no. This however, in no way means that I wish elsewise...
Now coming abruptly to the point,I don't know if you exist. Certainly , you are not someone with a huge white beard attired in a a resplendent white 'dhoti' with a HUGE crown on glittering head, sitting amidst huge lotus petals and smiling benignly as you throw rose petals at people getting married on Earth.That I know, but then I don't know if you exist as in exist as an entity with a thinking brain. All that I see around me viz flowers, insects ,flies, rivers, people ,are all said to be your creations but I wonder....Isn't it simply evolution? Changes keep happening ,not always for the better, and the fittest survives....What role do you have then??
But sometimes, when I want to thank someone for whatever I have , it is you I think of. When things go wrong, even though no one has ever seen you, I turn to you for help and guidance. You are essential for the upkeep of order in the society, I feel that today ,as a society taken as a whole, there is much more crime solely because most of us have no fear of You. No, I know you wont take out ur mutli pronged arrow the moment some babu in some nondescript village in UP takes a bribe of Rs.25 to set a file moving . NO. But if the babu is God fearing he might simply refuse the bribe.That could obviously be attributed to that 'jwaala ki warsha' kit that you or any of your comrades have supposedly used in chapter X ,page Y of some religious text the babu's mother read to him as a child. But it could also be because the Babu's conscience does not allow him to accept the bribe. That conscience is partly you .
As you might have gathered i am not an atheist ( lots of people are, and I am sure they write u hate mails!!!Bad people!!!! ) ,I am not even agnostic, infact I think I believe in you.But at times I just am not very sure. Most people say that since you could not be everywhere, you created mothers.I agree with any blessed soul who says that. All that is attributed to you, i see in Ma , no ,she is not perfect, i am old enough to point out her foibles to her when i see them..but i feel my mother is as close to perfection as one can be. I am sure most people feel the same way about their mothers as well ...but well...i digressed. So my mum was an atheist, she never believed in your existence, but now she does. She tells me that it is only sensible and positive to think of someone very powerful who is on your side.
She tells me to think of myself and You as a team. You and i work together, always. The work is evenly divided. I do the hard work and you do the planning. And since You know best You have the best plans up your sleeve. PLans that shall ultimately turn out to be the best for me even though at some point of time they seem like the worst that could happen to me. So, even if I feel things are not going my way, I have to keep doing my bit, that is keep working hard simply coz you are diligently doing your bit, that is planning the best for me.
She has another theory about you. You , I gather, keep something called a 'trump card' for everyone. Everyone. According to Ma, that trump card could be anything; from getting through the college of your dreams to getting the 'bestest' spouse on the planet . That trump card is big.It is that one thing that happens to you that is sooo big for you it could be the grandest opportunity for that person.It then is up to that person to make best use of that trump card. According to Ma, i still haven't got my trump card.No, no,no, this does not mean that I am asking you to give me mine..not at all...I am ready to wait, to work in the meantime..:) * a lovely smile for you, Mr. G.*
So, well..there is lots more I want to talk to you about , but this is after all a public blog, so I think I'll end my letter to you here.It was nice talking to you and I hope you did not mind anything I said. Rest all is fine here. I am doing good ,my family is doing good.
Thank You.
Ruchi.

Hey don't be biased how do you GOD is Mr, and why not Ms? Just kidding :)

Nice post. I wish all your GOOD aspirations come true, and soon you will get your trump card.

One thing is very confusing on this blogosophere. Everyone appears nice and honest here like a true "human Being". I have spent 25 yrs of my life, and never met so many HUMAN BEING at one place.

Suds said...

Tathastu...:):)

Hey nice post ruchi... Enjoy...

!xobile said...

you have the jewel in your pocket.
you know its there, then it is...
you don't know it, it doesn't exist.

ranjan said...

As Ze exaggeratorr said :), Ghar ki murgi dal barabar :D...

Everyone always have their trump cards one way or the other, they just don't happen to "see" it :)..and also, there can never be just one trump card, life is far more generous that way than most human beings !

God said...

Hi Ruchi,
Glad to hear from you. Well I can't write a long reply, as you know I am required at many orphanages. Sorry bad joke. See the deal is, I don't plan and I don't do miracles. I just see them happen. I give you the push to do those miracles. Have you ever seen how a skyscraper is built? There is a supervisor and there are many other people... sometimes called labor. I am the supervisor. I don't do anything myself, but just see than everything is falling place.
Keep in touch. Bless you and your family.
-God

PS The "word verification" is very annoying.

atul lakhotia said...

nice post...God shud reply to ur letter to clear any doubts...(of course if he exists...!!)

Raam Pyari said...

latika : hehe....u first!!!!!!!!!!:D :D :D
and no i did not get any of ur offlines, ur PC and ur connection suck biiiiggg time!!:D
BUt nevertheless, u first!:)

ankur: hehe...naah..we live in a patriarchal society na..so like the same goes for bhagvaanz as well;)

Cuming to the next thing, abt human beings...even i used to get the same feeling, but then i realized, like wat i rite on my blog is how i percieve a situation, how i see things,, how i perceive myself..and ofcrse, most ppl think they are nice;) hence when ever you read blogs u'll generally get this feeling of wat a nice person the blogger is..that is one reason , myb, why so many friendships spring up here:)

suds : hehe..:D
thankooo:) btw, ur switzerland pics were ossum!!

Zee putra, first of all, many congratulations once again for ur century:)
secondly...nooo, nuthing of this sort..cant u see, the trump card thingy is just somethng mum uses to make me feel better when i am low, nuthing else :)

Ranjan jee : :D yuss, u are right there..but as i told zee, the 'trump card' thing is juss something mum uses t make me feel better when ever i am low...:)
But, to set the records straight, there are many opportunities that come a persons way , many good things that happen , but the biggest one is your Trump card. So, only ONE trump card!!!

Raam Pyari said...

Hey , I was just a bit busy with a little acads and some other stuff.
Hope I get back to writing something , soon.

Gaurav said...

You write very well. Seems you are studying in some engineering college. Girl, you have some affinity for IITs and IIMs. I can see most of your friends are from these insti only. why so????

Msg from Senior said...

Just wondering, in our time nobody used to blog. We got internet in our college in third year only. Being your senior, Guys esp. from IITD please study or do something else. Don't vent your frustation in blogging. There is so much to do in Institute. Atleast go SAC and do some student activity :) We never used to enter our hostel rooms b4 midnight.

Reason why I'm commenting here becoz most of you visit here :)

DeePDiveR said...

That was my expression of joy to have read your post!!!

thirdly, i really dun know why most ppl on my blog are from iit-iim...i dunno..its not like i rite all techno stuff that only brainoz from iit-iim understand ,far from it..i dunno, buddy..i have wundered myself but i dunno...non iit and non iim ppl are very very welcome, though!!!:)

senior jee : first in case this is ur first time here, welcome to my blog :) .

secondly, bhai, i toh vent my frustations on my bloggie biiiig time...ppl come here and often gimme their frank opinion on wat i rite. if i put up an ultra frustoo post, they often make me see sense....and as far as IITD is specifically concerned , i only know one person from the insti who frequents my blog...so i dun think u can say that the entire iitd junta z here :)

deep: hehe..inna evil lafterr???:D:D

Gaurav said...
