RARE LESSON MUST READ AND LEARN SOMETHING

Image may contain: text
Rare Lesson...must read and learn something -
The Boss was retiring. Everyone had tears in their eyes on the day of his farewell. One of the employees said, “Sir, there is one thing we want to learn from you. You worked here for so many years. What to speak about scolding your subordinates, we have never seen you even shouting at them. We have scolded our subordinates on the pressure of work or for other reasons. We want to know about the seed of your patience.”

The Boss said, “Then listen to this incident of my childhood. My father was working as a lower level employee in an office. He was a very nice person. He was respected very much in our family. It happened one day. I was studying in the 4th standard. I had gone to the office of my father for some reason. I saw that my father was not at his seat. I waited outside. After some time, the door of the Boss opened. My father came out of the door. I saw the fair face of my father had turned red. He went straight to a corner and stood there looking outside through a window there. He had not seen me. I went to him and called him slowly. He was taken by surprise and turned back to look at me. I saw a stream of tears flowing down his eyes. He was slightly disturbed seeing me. He did not find time to wipe out his tears. Can my father cry anytime? He was the strongest man in the world for me. It was out of my imagination that someone could hurt him. I ran straight to the room of the Boss. Father was calling me from behind. But, listening to nothing, I went inside and asked the Boss, “Why did you make my father cry?” The Boss was also surprised.

Thereafter, my father tried to make me understand. But, that day I had decided to take revenge on the Boss. I decided that day that I will study well and become a Boss one day, but I will not make my subordinates cry anytime. Because, they are not only the employees of my office, they are also respected and dear father or brother or somebody of their families and their surroundings. People say it is not possible to control others without scolding them. I say, what for love is there then?”

CELEBRATING 67 YEARS OF INDIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM



24TH January 1950,”Jana Gana Mana” was officially declared as India’s National Anthem.

The National Anthem reminds me of assembly in school days and the yell of “Jai Hind!” after the singing of National Anthem.When I hear the national anthem, I'm overwhelmed as it fills me with a sense of pride.I get goosebumps every time I hear national anthem and it brings tears in my eyes thinking of our freedom fighters, both the known faces and those countless unknown faces.

There are certain rules that prescribed in our constitution to sing National Anthem.

1.    It should get over in a stipulated time frame over apprx 52 sec. 

2.   You should stand up, with your shoulders held straight, and head held high, showing your utmost respect for the nation.

3.    Whenever the Anthem is sung or played, the audience shall stand to attention.

4.   However, when in the course of a news reel or documentary the Anthem is played as a part of the film, it is not expected of the audience to stand as standing is bound to interrupt the exhibition of the film and would create disorder and confusion rather than add to the dignity of the Anthem. 

5. As in the case of the flying of the National Flag, it has been left to the good sense of the people not to indulge in indiscriminate singing or playing of the Anthem. 

6. A short version consisting of the first and last lines of the National Anthem is also played on certain occasions Approx 20 sec. Usually the short version of the Anthem shall be played when drinking toasts in Messes. 

7. Though some peoples confuse that it can't be sung after sunset and so, i believe like a true patriot you can sing it any time, with full respect and proud in your heart.  

Now a days a lot of controversies about National Anthem.So many questions, that why should one have to follow the rules while singing National Anthem. I dont  have time to controversy about the topic.

The rules are just another way of showing respect towards your country.But I wish to say that Patriotism means its a strong feeling and sense of pride towards our country, what you yourselves feel inside is true patriotism. As a school child, the law never forced me to stand up when my teacher entered the classroom. The law doesn’t force us to touch our elders’ feet to show our respect.The law never forced to stand when a seniors or elders enters a room. Neither does the law force us to breathe or bathe or love or laugh. But we do it all, regardless, because respect comes from within and it’s a noble feeling, irrespective of whether it is an emotional expression or a biological need.This analogy might not be entirely perfect for the topic at hand, but the point is that we do a lot of things, happily, that the law does not force us to.Showing respect to the National Anthem is one of those.

Whether the law makes it compulsory or not is beside the point. I have seen even foreigners stand up when the Indian national anthem is played.It’s not about the law, folks, as some lawyers would have us believe: it’s about the sentiment, which a simple act like merely standing up when the national anthem is being played, that shows your respect for the motherland and for the thousands of martyrs who laid their lives for the very democracy.

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL MATURITY?

Image may contain: text


Spiritual Maturity is
1.When you stop trying to change others, instead focus on changing yourself.
2. When you *accept people as they are.*
3. When you *understand everyone is right in their own perspective.*
4. When you *learn to "let go".*
5. When you are able to *drop "expectations" from a relationship and give for the sake of giving.*
6. When you *understand whatever you do, you do for your own peace.*
7. When you *stop proving to the world, how intelligent you are.*
8. When you *don't seek approval from others.*
9. When you *stop comparing with others.*
10. When you *are at peace with yourself.*
11. When you *are able to differentiate between "need" and "want" and are able to let go of your wants.*
AND last but most meaningful !*
12. You gain Spiritual Maturity when you *stop attaching "happiness" to material things !!*
Being on a spiritual path does not prevent you from facing times of darkness. But it teaches you how to use the darkness as a tool to grow.Spirituality is not a religion, being spiritual just means you are in touch with your own divine self. It does not come from religion.It comes from your soul.The spiritual password is the unique connection to the wisdom of our hearts.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017

THE PARALYMPICS IS WHERE HEROES COME


“One must discover early that the hardest thing to overcome is not a physical disability but the mental condition which it induces. You all proved that determination and "Willpower is essential to the accomplishment of anything worthwhile."
Hats off, and you are backbone of nations.So touching and talented.Being a true Indian/Human, I must appreciate your efforts and I believe Paralympics should be given more publicity.Salute to all these boys and girls.Their will power needs to be imbibed. These players give us an important lesson of living life without worrying about physical limitations.One has to have a positive attitude and must make the best of the situation that one finds oneself in; if one is physically disabled, one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well. In my opinion, one should concentrate on activities in which one's physical disability will not present a serious handicap.
What I learned was that these athletes were not disabled, they were superabled. The Olympics is where heroes are made. The Paralympics is where heroes come.
Last but not least Hats of to the person who made this medal with a super thought.See their faces with heart full smiles that feeling must be awesome.

REMEMBERING MS SUBBALAKSHMI ON HER BIRTH CENTENARY



Remembering M S Subbulakshmi 'Nightingale' of Carnatic music, on her Birth Anniversary who was more than just an exceptional singer with an indomitable spirit. Age did not wither her.The spirit was attributable to a total and unparalleled surrender to the lord. The fact that the Mahatma chose only her to sing ‘Vaishnava Janato’ on many occasions, and that Pandit Nehru called her ‘The Nightingale of India’ were only added jewels to an already resplendent crown.

MSL who has millions of fans and music lovers across the world. Today she is no more amidst us., but the rich legacy of music she has left behind for us is enough proof of her living amidst us in our hearts.she inhales music with every breath that she takes. There have been no compromises, no tactical manoeuvres, no conscious efforts to capture attention, no sacrifice of quality at the altar of showmanship and no stooping to thrill, only striving to elevate. She merely sings from the depths of her soul and the world sways to the magic of her music.
I reverentially pay rich musical tributes to this immortal singer M S Subbalakshmi on her Birth centenary.

SIGNIFICANCE OF 21 LEAVES WORSHIPED FOR GANESHA POOJA


On the day of Ganesha Chaturthi festival, there is a tradition of worshipping Lord Ganesha with 21 different varieties of leaves known as Ekavimshati Pathra Pooja. The number 21 signifies - the five organs of perception, five organs of action, five vital airs (pranas), five elements, and the mind.
Apart from spiritual significance there is also an element of health consciousness and environmental protection involved in its usage. Even today these leaves/herbs are used in preparing Ayurvedic medicines curing several diseases. Apart from this they act as a Divine way of controlling pollution, be it water or air.As this festival comes in monsoon it saves us from various viral infections and water born diseases.After the worship the leaves along with idol will be immersed in water and these leaves purify the water with its medicinal properties, water with out causing pollution. Thus worshiping Lord Ganesha with different varieties of leaves is associated with the belief that these medicinal values will reach the human beings either through air or water apart from providing the required sanctity and spirituality.
Instead following what our ancestors told we are using what ever available in the markets and we are disturbing environment pollution by endangering the water bodies. My appeal to all is if you dont know the 21 varieites then just offer 21 blades of Druva Grass to him with a piece of Jaggery .He will simply satisies and What is more important is devotion not the ritual.
Lord Ganesha is our mentor and protector.May he enrich our life by always giving great beginnings and removing obstacles from our life. Happy Ganesha Chathurthi.
wishing you a Blessed and Happy Ganesha chathurthi
