In Brief…

This blog

This blog mostly has things that touched me, mixed in with my own stuff, reflections or thoughts. Things that I comeback to, and want to share with all. I imagine my blog being an interesting find to someone; Like a little pebble in the stream that caught a child’s eye.

Me

I am Rajeev Bacchu, from Bangalore, India. I am a tinkerer playing with my precious little life, in this beautiful world with some lovely company.

“A place becomes a home when it sustains you, when it feeds you in body as well as spirit.”
— Robin Wall Kimmerer

As of this writing, I am in the process of finding home in our little farm ||bahulavana||.

This is a brief intro to those who don’t know me (yet). Who know me, already know me as whatever.

And some quotes

My life has been woven by fate & fortune, places & people, my needs, exploration, learning & play. I’ve simply sought to live a meaningful life to myself and my world. Labels, I believe don’t suit the fluidity of my being. I find it hard to frame myself in titles.

I align with the sentiments of some inspiring folks who’ve spoken about self-definition:

Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious presence. You can only loose something that you have, but you cannot loose something that you are.
Jim Morrison

I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person
Franz Kafka.

I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing - a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process - an integral function of the universe
R. Buckminister Fuller.

I view myself as an eternal novice in every endeavor. A perspective that inspired my chosen name, “rawjeev”—playfully translates to: “Raw-Life”.
