lostworld said...

Just 2 !! I thought there'd be about a dozen tags enough to keep me busy entire day :-D

Well done. Liked your answers. Srirangam is a lovely place!

Now, my blog missed u. Haven't seen you for a while.

Bharathi said...

Your answer for Q.10 of first tag is amazing.

Vedic ideas are divided into two, based on their validity. One- those ideas which suits all yugas. Two- those sutis only particular yuga. All ideas about athma comes under first category. Ideas on widow remarriage, poligomy etc comes under second category. Even Ramayan and mahabharath comes under second category.

The second category is named as Smiruthi and the first category is named as Shruti. This is the information I got and that is why I like this name.

Is this another meaning of your name interesting?

One final question regarding Innocent or Guilty tag.
have you answered all the questions honestly? (yes or No)

MM said...

wow!! Epic for sure!! hat a way to un-tag !! LOL ! Loved reading abt u.. :) have fun..

Paritosh said...

[i]Shot a gun? Guilty.[/i]

Et tu, Brutus? What's up with the girls of our generation! Whatever happened to the sati savitris who stayed at home and cooked nice warm meals?

How will we guys hit upon girls with a perfect knowledge that we won't be hit by a bullet?

Shruti said...

@Rachana

Shankar said...

Yellow Tulip said...

lovely tags dear:)...very well done:)....about u being dumb naaah...its the dumb tag!!!

Shruti said...

@Lostworld
Hi girlie :)
First my apologies for not dropping by ur blog! I lost my blog-roll :(

Coming to the posts, Its actually 3 tags. My native is srirangam! So am fond of it! :)

Shruti said...

@Bharathi
>>Q.10 - :) Nobody noticed that, glad that u liked it! :)

>>Meaning of my name- Shruti mainly consists of the Vedas and the Agamas, preserved initially through oral tradition and eventually written down in Sanskrit. For countless centuries shruti has been the basis of philosophical discussion and study. Most mantras are drawn from shruti. Shruti is the priliminary form of vedic texts, before the veda's were segregated into Rig, Yajur, sama, Adharvana. Traditionally shruti is not read, but chanted according to extremely precise rules of grammar, pitch, intonation and rhythm. Whereas Veds's are read and then chanted.

Hope I made myself clear :). I don't know whether this interests u, but I love this fact!

>>Your last question:have you answered all the questions honestly? (yes or No)
Yes

>>My question to u : What made u ask me that last question? You think I faked out answers?! (Need an honest reply!)

Shruti said...

@MM
Lol :P
Thanks shruti :)

Shruti said...

@Paritosh
Hey buddy, welcome back to my blog after a longggg time :)

Yes I shot a gun! I enrolled myself in an Rifle shooting Class and got trained for 2 months :). Still we are sati savitri's. But My interests are weird. :)

Shruti said...

@Shankar
Hey thanks buddy! Let me grow up, mind... am still a kiddo!

Shruti said...

@Yelow tulip
Hey, thanks :)
Yes, the tag is dumb :P

Bharathi said...

Long time back, when I was reading all I could on Hinduism, I found this beautiful meaning of Shruti.

I think you didnt understand that meaning I described here.

Veda has two parts. One part teaches about the ultimate truth of life and athma. bhagwatgita, Upanishads, brahma sutra etc. This will never change and suits all BCs and ADs. This part is named as Shruti in Veda.

In the second part, based on the above principles, vedas imposed some rules on the society and way of life. These are time bound. This part is called as smrithi. One clear example would be, in those days widow remarriage was banned. because so many males were dying in wars and it was difficult for even young unmarried girls to get married. So they imposed this rule. Obviously it is timebound and will not suit this century. We can call this as smrithi.

As you said, there are many interpretations to this name. I was trying to say, this particular meaning of your name impressed me.

Regarding your question, its just a friendly enquiry as couple of friends who took this tag said that they faked answers to meet good score :-)

Shilpa said...

you break a lot of things??

Me too :D

shilpa

Shruti said...

@Bharathi
Hey buddy, I know the meaning you have very well described by you. I added my points to whatever i've researched about my name. Further, like u said, shruti is solely of divine origin and contains no specific concepts of law.
Simply we can say shruti as Revealation of the eternal truth. Smriti is the tradition that we follow in society and life.

I dint fake to get score. I am honest with whatever I have uttered!

Shruti said...

@Shilpa
Even now, I broke the rules of tagging people :P

Neha said...

hmmm, praises for MM or the praising MM? hmmmm :P

my answer for over-rated icon is SRK too :D

u like de villers? wow...he is one of my favourites too...u r a big time cricket fan girl na?

and I wanna complete the concept you mentioned
"If you cant convince them, just confuse them. and if u can't confuse them, then cheat them" :P

I love tea too..


about Tag 2, well u r a very nice girl re...innocent almost everywhere..nor u r very dumb...

nice answers :D

Shruti said...

@Neha
>>""praises for MM or the praising MM?""
Let her decide that :)

>> Heheeh.. same pinch then :)

>>Yes am a big time cricket fan girl :) U too love de villers?!

>>Cheating my professors in viva session :O :O. Even for the first part, many tried my concept, but they cant confuse effectively :P

>>I know u like tea :P

>>Neha, am still a kiddo re :)

Mahesh said...

Hey Shruti,

Mahi here :) :) :)

More than the tags and the score, what fascinated me is the rational discussion between you and Bharati gaaru......about the word 'Shruti'. It took me back to the post indus civilization era of Aryans vedic civlisation

Yeah, before scripting vedas into texts, they were being transferred from generation to generation not only through shruti but also through smruti....
I mean to say they had to memorise first(smruthi) and then they had to chant them to transfer(Shruti)......
I am not contradicting you as there are many concepts and interpretations on these words. May be our opinions are depended on which source we have referred. (Anthropology and being agnostic)

Tags,..... Dumb is a very good zone as we have got more freedom to explore and express....... :) :) :)

cheers,
mahi, a dumbo :)

Mahesh said...

Hey Shruti....

Blogging, Shri Ilayaraja gaaru, Tea(anytime), Srirangam(yet to see),cotton clothing, silence, that quote, entrepreneur, SRK(hate him)....

and finally the special one

Kajal... a small bindhi...and shruti....the perfect combination.....my fav one.

After many days, i got a friend with so many common tastes..... :) :) :)

cheers
mahi

Shruti said...

@Mahesh
Hi mahi,
The concepts u mentioned about Shruti and smriti contradicts very well here. But as u said, the source differs. But when I asked expert pundits regarding this, They told me that shruti is the preliminary texts of vedas. They are the oral translation of the hymns. From shruti veda's were written. Obviously as we all know, nobody has written the veda. Because still, the author is unknown or we call call as aborigine. Shruti has divine origins. whereas smriti doesn't have such origins!

U are a dumbo?! Hey how about taking up this tag?!

Mahesh said...

@ Shruti,

Ok.lets concise it this way....
To transfer/transmit 'Shruti', one has memorize it so that he can sing it again next time without errors. My perception of 'Smrithi' is memorizing and retreiving the Sruthi. Now, you got my point?? Am i still contradicting?

The basis for this discussion is that i like the name Shruti for both its historical and cultural attributes....

Shruti said...

@Mahesh
Mahi, let me reply to ur latest comment on the name shruti.
I can stilll feel some contradictions. As i replied Bharathi, Traditionally shruti is not read, but chanted according to extremely precise rules of grammar, pitch, intonation and rhythm. Whereas Veds's are read and then chanted. Shruti is just collection of those texts. smriti is the one we follow, we memorise!

:)

Shruti said...

@Mahesh
So many common's?! I really wonder.
""Kajal... a small bindhi.""
What u have to do with this?! :O

:) :)
Thanks :)

HaRy!! said...

hate SRK..pavam avan...anyways...1% analum seri, 10% analum seri..49% analum seri..dumb dumb than...athula onummmmeee panamudiyathu! :D...

Shruti said...

@Hary
adhu yenakkum theriyum! :P
Aana, indha tag oru dumb :P

Mahesh said...

@ Shruti,

The kalaj and bindi combination goes very well with indian girls. It is just my taste. I mean i prefer gals in kajal and bindi as it reflects our culture(choice ofcoz...). May be coz i have seen my mom n cousins in dat attire....may be because am southie too.... :)

So i felt Shruti in kajal and bindi looks great......thats it :)

Shruti said...

@Mahesh
Oh u speak of girls devoid of lip-glosses, eye-liners, mascaras and other fashion things eh!?

Now understood :)
Thanks for those extra-spiced up words :P
