Entropy of mind : The Randomness

As per "Second law of Thermodynamics" Entropy of universe is supposed to continuously increase with time. Entropy is a term in thermodynamic which basically refers to disorder or randomness in a system. It is also a measure of energy that is unavailable to do any kind of useful work. In a way entropy is such disorder of system which negatively effects the efficiency of any given system. This disorder can either increase or remain constant and it can never decrease in any isolated system. And there is only one condition where this disorder can be contained that is when all processes of the system become perfectly reversible.



This entropy enters into mind of a person as soon it gets formed inside the womb of a mother and slowly slowly start unsettling it. Mind of a child,which got very low entropy, is generally very clear about surroundings, receptive of new ideas and can quickly learn and unlearn things. A young person got lesser baggage that is lesser innate disorder in his mind thus stay more happy, cheerful and positive about its surroundings.He is able to reflect on things in better ways and inherently more fearless to take on any challenge compared to his old self. This is why a child sleeps way more peacefully compared to a grown up person.

As a person grow older naturally he gets to learn many new things and gain experience about its surroundings. Every incident, be it positive,negative or neutral one, leaves unique mark in his mind and his innate ordered positiveness gets affected. This creates disorder in the system resulting in increase in entropy in his mind. The "ability to learn" and more so "ability to unlearn" things decrease. As the age catches up with the person, actively and passively, positive and negative, innumerable things keep running in his mind. The person becomes more cautious and suspicious about the surrounding and slowly but surely becomes more and more negative about prevailing things. A higher form of entropy may also result in depression, addiction, self harm, short tempered behaviour, greediness etc. The entropy also adversely affect the regenerative powers of our cells resultantly taking toll on both mental as well as physical health.

This does not mean that once things deteriorated it cannot be controlled. Though its true that entropy can never decrease in isolated system but then our brain is not an isolated machine. It is very much connected to our body as well as to the surrounding environment. So with serious efforts we can, though only in limited ways, bring back some order in our brain.For this we have to believe in our-self, focus inside our mind, avoid all kind of negative energy and with effort create positiveness to push disorder out of the mind to the universe.The most famous way of reducing entropy, which can be tried is doing meditation in which person focuses on his internal energy and try to calmly control his thoughts and actions.But it can be seen that majority of people find it difficult to sustain with continuously doing meditation. 

Those who are not very comfortable or regular with meditation need not to loose hope. Any simple natural hobby or in-fact even your regular job done with passion and positive attitude may work as effectively as meditation can. Many scriptures and religious texts including the famous Bhagwat Geeta have either put 'Karma Yoga" above "Bhakti Yoga" or atleast at same level.For a sports loving person his favourite sport can do wonders in keeping mind peacefully balanced, those who got hobbies like painting, singing, dancing, cooking, writing etc can also get enough order in his mind just by religiously pursuing his hobby. Here let me clarify that you need not to be even average in his area of interest, its just that your intensity of interest should be above average in those areas and you should enjoy what you are doing. Even your job, if done with positive attitude may help creating order in your mind.

The more you keep things ordered and simple, the lesser will be entropy resulting in more peaceful,calm and stable mind.

कर्ण और कृष्ण का संवाद - रामधारी सिंह 'दिनकर'

Following is excerpt from poem Rashmirathi written by Ram dhari singh dinkar. Karna reply to Krishna when he told story of his birth and ask him to join pandava side. सुन-सुन कर कर्ण अधीर हुआ, क्षण एक तनिक गंभीर हुआ,  फिर कहा "बड़ी यह माया है, जो कुछ आपने बताया है  दिनमणि से सुनकर वही कथा मैं भोग चुका हूँ ग्लानि व्यथा  मैं ध्यान जन्म का धरता हूँ, उन्मन यह सोचा करता हूँ,  कैसी होगी वह माँ कराल, निज तन से जो शिशु को निकाल  धाराओं में धर आती है, अथवा जीवित दफनाती है?  सेवती मास दस तक जिसको, पालती उदर में रख जिसको,  जीवन का अंश खिलाती है, अन्तर का रुधिर पिलाती है  आती फिर उसको फ़ेंक कहीं, नागिन होगी वह नारि नहीं  हे कृष्ण आप चुप ही रहिये, इस पर न अधिक कुछ भी कहिये  सुनना न चाहते तनिक श्रवण, जिस माँ ने मेरा किया जनन  वह नहीं नारि कुल्पाली थी, सर्पिणी परम विकराली थी  पत्थर समान उसका हिय था, सुत से समाज बढ़ कर प्रिय था  गोदी में आग लगा कर के, मेरा कुल-वंश छिपा कर के  दुश्मन का उसने काम किया, माताओं को बदनाम किया  माँ का पय भी न पीया मैंने, उलटे अभिशाप लिया मैंने  वह तो यशस्विनी बनी रह

एक पुलिसवाले की व्यथा

लोग अक्सर कहते हैं कि पुलिस सही तरीके से क्राइम कंट्रोल नहीं करती है लेकिन पुलिस करे तो करे क्या। उग्र भीड़ को क्राइम कंट्रोल करने पर आधारित एक लघु कथा। उन्मादी भीड़ हाथों में नंगी तलवारें, लाठी, डंडे लिए पागलों की तरह पुलिस वालों को पत्थर मार मार कर खदेड़ रही थी। उसकी पुलिस भीड़ से अपना असलाह और खुद को बचाते हुए पीछे हट रही थी। थानेदार का सर बुरी तरह फूट गया दो सिपाही उसे सँभालते हुए पीछे हट रहे थे बड़े अफसर, एस डी ऍम, सब मौके से गायब थे। ऑर्रडर देने वाला कोई दूर दूर तक नहीं था। भीड़ हावी होती जा रही थी। सब को कहीं न कही चोट लगी थी।भीड़ को लाठी डंडो से काबू करने के हालात तो बिलकुल भी नहीं थे। सबकी जान पर बनी हुई थी परंतु हाथ में लोड राइफल होते हुए भी जवान गोली चलाने से बच रहे थे, कैसी कायर स्तिथि थी। अचानक हवलदार बुधना को भीड़ ने पकड़ लिया और एक आदमी ने बुधना के सर पर कैरोसिन की गैलन उंडेल दी और दूसरे ने माचिस निकाली ही थी की धाँय की आवाज हुई और माचिस वाला जमीं पर लुढकने लगा।दूसरी आवाज में तेल के गैलन वाला जमीं पर कला बाजी खा रहा था । भीड़ जहां थी वहीँ थम गयी और उलटे पावँ भागने लगी लेकिन......अ

Scheme for creation of National Optical Fiber Network for Broadband connectivity of Panchayats

The Union Cabinet recently approved a scheme for creation of a National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) for providing Broadband connectivity to Panchayats. The objective of the scheme is to extend the existing optical fiber network which is available up to district / block HQ’s level to the Gram Panchayat level initially by utilizing the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF). The cost of this initial phase of the NOFN scheme is likely to be about Rs.20,000 crore. A similar amount of investment is likely to be made by the private sector complementing the NOFN infrastructure while providing services to individual users. In economic terms, the benefits from the scheme are expected through additional employment, e-education, e-health, e-agriculture etc. and reduction in migration of rural population to urban areas. As per a study conducted by the World Bank, with every 10% increase in broadband penetration, there is an increase in GDP growth by 1.4%. NOFN will also facilitate implemen

Analysis of Civil Services Prelims paper ( CSAT ) 2011

Anyone who is following the recent trends of civil services prelims papers , can easily predict the unpredictable nature of the paper . Also since this year CSAT has been introduced for the first time every one was curious to see the prelims paper of this year . Atlast today on 12th june suspense ended and what we found was more unpredictable than predictable .I will do paper wise analysis Paper 1 : The topics which came in paper was very much on predictable line . It was very specifically written in UPSC syllabus "General issues on Environmental ecology, Bio-diversity and Climate Change - that do not require subject specialization" , though question have always been asked from these topics but since UPSC mentioned it as separate topic this year , few questions were expected form this topic . Similarly few questions were expected from the Economics , Polity , International affairs , general science and History as well . But then , with UPSC one can never expect que
