~Shankhaninad~

Goddess Saraswati……the goddess of knowledge,education,establishment and achievement…..rather the goddess of reaching the ultimatum. …the final career goal of our life……thus it is considered to be the ritual of the students,who are pursuing some sort of education or  the other…and perhaps the only festival….we,the youngsters…consider so seriously…and take active part in it…..and like all other years 2010 is not an exception…….While preparing for this occasion, a strange thought suddenly struck my mind……I was arranging the flower,decorating the place with “alpana”……the essential part of the puja…..the conk shell drew my attention….an unparallel…auspicious blowing instrument for the hindu ceremony………

This might be an oxymoron…..the species which are so…helpless,dumb…..struggling hard for their survival in the harsh marine life….sometimes trying in vain to prevent its soft body from the adversities of life by hiding in the tough protection of its shell…….. which is used as a shield to conceal its vulnerable delicacy in hard encapsulation…helping it to rest in peace from the turbulence of life……. The same shell…..the same shield…which was used to hide the presence of its owner,is now used as an object to reveal its presence….its  existence in this queer world…..by spreading its deep…audible,pleasing sound….a totally unheard fact to itself…….isn’t it strange??? …..strange indeed….perhaps the mysterious destiny for this sea inhabitant……
