why “dance of shiva”
“The Dance of Shiva: The Hindu View of Matter in the Light of Modern Physics” was an essay written by Fritjof Capra which led him a few years later to write the bestsellers “Tao of Physics“, “The Turning Point” and “Uncommon Wisdom“. He writes,
“…every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance, but also is an energy dance; a pulsating process of creation and destruction…without end…For the modern physicists, then Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter. As in Hindu mythology, it is a continual dance of creation and destruction involving the whole cosmos; the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomena.”
the symbolism appeals very strongly to me, as i experiment through life, creating and destroying parts of me as i go along.
who am i
i am a director at “srijan technologies“, an open source IT consulting company based in new delhi. there is a lot i desire to do, as a social entrepreneur – specifically in rural areas in india.
with the help of my mentors and coaches, and books, we are experimenting with “democracy at work“, on the lines of ricardo semlers’s experiments and success with semco in brazil.
i wish to move out of technology onto creating social entrepreneurship projects very soon. perhaps sometime i’ll revive my long-time dream of becoming a politician and bringing about political change in this country that i love so much.
the views expressed in this blog, and do not represent that of the company i run, or it’s social arm – srijan foundation. the thoughts are entirely my own. the organisations i work with would have their own collective vision, mission, thoughts, and goals.
