‘Guru'(Master) Vasistha and student Lord Rama:
Lord Rama along with his brothers and other students use to stay at ‘Guru’ Vasistha’s ‘Ashram’ (Hermitage). At early morning after worshiping God and offering their prayer to their ‘Guru’ students would gather and listen to their teacher’s lecture. We will present a decent dialect between Rama and Vasistha.
Master: Where were we yesterday dear Rama?
Rama: Sir we were discussing regarding ‘punya‘ (virtue) and ‘pap’ (sin) but it was already dusk and the topic remained incomplete.
Master: Yes, so ‘punya’ my dear students is nothing but unconditional love towards one another and society. While ‘pap’ is hatred against any human being. A soul caught in the cycle of virtue and sin, dies and reborn again and again in various wombs. One can only break this cycle by being above both virtue and sin.
Rama: Sir, But a normal person throughout his life will definitely get involved in ‘karma’ (Act) and it will be either evaluated as sin or virtue. Then how come will we able to break this cycle?
Master: You are right Rama, A man must act but when his action becomes detached and devoid from its result, then the soul gets freed from the result of the act and thus breaks the cycle and achieves ‘mukti’ (Salvation).
One of the step towards achieving this other than ‘bhakti’ (Total devotion to God) is changing the perspective and becoming the audience. When a person is a viewer he enjoys even the sorrows and struggle of the actor.
The person can only make ego-less decision and improvements by separating himself from his body and viewing the body as a doer. Thus, be the viewer and watch yourself then you can make unconditional decisions in life and will enjoy this biggest play of life.
Under the darkness of the night,
In the middle of the busy city light,
When the demon of questions hold you tight,
Demon which falls only when you have a thought process bright,
I bet The Plan “B” holds the key right.
WHAT ARE SUCH QUESTIONS?

- Spent time together or maintain distance?

- To be practical or believe in magic?
- Study or Extracurricular activities?
- To express the emotions or suppress them?
- Even, How to live life?.
And many more like this might amuse you at any time or in any situations of your life.
What is plan “b”?
In the word PLAN “B”, B stands for nothing but the word Balancing. Simple, old but I assure effectively!
Hold your horses and you will find, HOW?
Let me take you across a story, where I first found the significance this word holds. It is a short story from my one of the favorite book The Alchemist (A novel by Paulo Coelho. I personally recommend you to read this book and even others of him.)
So the story goes like this…
