Clean mind incubator of billion ideas
N Bhanu Prakash Jonnalagadda, Owner, Exploring Infinites, Swach Soch, Swach Bol is one the very few taglines that appeals to me. These aren’t two independent concepts; the latter is a result of the former.
Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached - Swami Vivekananda
Swach Soch is an ideal. Speaking mathematically, Swach Soch is proportional to productive ideas one gets. How important is to think and talk good? ‘Good’ is relative. Everyone has their own definition of what’s good and what’s not. I feel that it’s really important that one should always think and speak about things that fall under one’s understanding of good. My inspirations in life are Srinivasa Ramanujan and Sachin Tendulkar for their dedication, and Stephen Hawking for his success despite his medical difficulties.
In order to raise your standards in life, always aim higher, think loftier and try to surround yourself with people who are like mountains: Strong, dependable, knowledgable and completely down to earth. The highest mountain has its foundation deep in the ground. What do you do to keep yourself clean and pure from inside and out? Physically, there is nothing better than a cold water head bath after long hours of thinking. I believe that everyone has their own way to purify themselves from within.
I do it with some quick math tasks, by playing chess and by mediating. A clean mind is an incubator of a billion ideas. If the mind is clear, surroundings will also be clean. External hygiene (swachhta) can only be taught when we first have internal swachhta. When the mind is polluted, any number of attempts to bring about change made by any number of people will bear no fruit.
