Mother and child relation

According to old Indian scriptures and saints, mother plays the most important role in the child development. Child grabs most of his properties and character from his mother. Child remain inside the womb of mother for nine months, all this makes an unexplainable bond between them which exists between them for whole life. These scriptures say that child behavior starts taking shape even before birth. In India, when woman are pregnant then they are told to read good books and think positive thoughts because it is believed that mothers feelings and thoughts effect the child. Scriptures says that saints are born from mothers who are pure in their thoughts. According to them behind every good person there is an equally good mother. Even after birth, child depends on mother for most of his requirements. If we compare parents them we will definite find mothers more impulsive and caring for their children. Bond between mother and child is inseparable and is beyond our explanations. Mother de

What is more important health or money?

If we ask this question to people then 99% people will give answer for health. This is true, we all agree with this answer. We all know the value of health. However, the problem is that we are earning money by compromising our health. Sometimes our work takes control of us in such a way that health takes the back seat. Most of people realize the value of health when they have lost it and now they lose their money to restore health. But unfortunately their money is not enough to get back the health. No one in this world can purchase his passed youth and health. We may earn huge sum of money and every thing of comfort may be available at our door. But, without health it is not possible to enjoy this wealth and health. More over no price can be set for healthy youth time. Earning money is not a wrong thing. Everyone should try for earning good money, but that should not be at the cost of health. Good health itself is like big money in hand.

Obesity is going to become a biggest problem in India

Obesity is going to become a biggest problem in India. India which was earlier known for its slim and healthy people is going to reshape itself into new colors. Obesity is known to be associated with western countries. However, Indian’s have determined to replace western countries from the chart. Indian especially from urban and semi urban area are becoming more and more obese and the major concern is that all this is happening due to life style changes. Today’s Indians can easily afford cars and two-wheelers, therefore reducing their chances for walk. Junk foods are easily available even in the remotest town of India. Diets habits are severely hit by the fast life style. Earlier people of different region eat food according to the geographic suitability. In hilly areas people eat food rich in fats and carbohydrates. People living near sea enjoy sea food more. There was a culture of traditional food which suits the needs of that area. This is the reason why people eat different food. H

In the memory of my son

As par the article published in leading Indian weekly magazine “The Week”, a 62 years old person has dig up a 60 feet wide and 60 feet deep pond on his own land. He lives in an area of Bihar (India), which is severely hit by drought every year. It took him 8 years to complete this pond and whole of the pond is made by him single handedly. For the last 8 years he was working continuously to make this pond. He did not stopped for a single day, even in illness. When he started digging pond then people did not believed him, however, now those same people recognize and praise his efforts. Initially, many people took his efforts as madness and advised to send him to a mental hospital. However, this man remained firm on his goal and continued to work in all the conditions. All these efforts are done by him in the memory of his late 26 years old son, who was killed by some people. His son always wanted a pond in the village.

When sometime we fail?

Failures are import part of our life. Every one faces them at some point in their life. We may face a failure due to n number of reason. Some times we are not prepared, some times what is expected from us is more than what we can deliver, some time luck fails us, sometimes our health betrays us or sometimes may be other reasons. There will be hardly any person in this world, who would like to fail? A fear of failure always remains with us and sometimes also leads to our failure. If, we rate between success and failure then the chances of failure are always more and with the passage of time world is becoming more failure driven. More and more things are becoming mere competitions and increasing chances of our failure. Today, even a five year old child is worried about failure. Today’s failures are taking the shape of more worst fears and there numbers are more as compared to fifty years back. When fifty years back a person fails five times, however, today we can expect a person to fail

A Total surrender

In Bhagwad Geeta, Lord Krishna has said that whosoever surrenders in me in totality becomes my favourite and I take care of him in all difficulties. I take care of all his grieves, as my own. He further said that he is most lovable to me and with total surrender he becomes one with me. At this time no one can differentiate between the god and devotee. Devotee is god and god is devotee. Krishna further said I became servant of these devotees, who have total surrender in me. Total surrender to god is a great experience and it is exercised by the people of all religions. Sufism is a great example of total surrender, surrender, in which person even forgets about himself. Those people who surrender completely themselves to god, starts feeling strange power of god in them. They can communicate with him and can see him. Many saints have lived all around the world, which have showed a great example of surrender. There are examples of people, in surrender who have drunk poison and nothing happe

Movie Review- Fanna (Hindi Movie)

Fanna is the latest movie on Indian cinema. However, Fanna was in news before its release. Even still fanna is not released in cinema halls across Gujarat. I am not going to discuss any controversy. Fanna made under yash raj banners and staring Amir Khan and kajol. Fanna has good music which provides lot of entertainment while watching the movie. Songs are will choreographed. Fanna has beautifully portrayed the beauty of Kashmir. Fanna is a try to give different color to Kashmir problem and film is successful in it to some extent, because if we seriously want to solve the Kashmir issue then we have to look into all angles. Fanna shows us the expectation of common Kashmiri youth. Through the way of Fanna, director has put forward the problem of Kashmir and its effect of kashmiri’s living their. How terrorism can affect people and their families? About the acting all the characters are fine. There are some weaknesses in direction and hero centric story. Film is a good try to say somethin

Tom cruise lovers all over the world are excited to see this movie. However, especially girls will not like that their hero Tom cruise is going to marry some one else in this film. And, yes MI-111 is all about love, emotion and finally action to save love. Rent Movies online in your City This time Tom cruise decided to marry his friend and finally lands up in saving her. This movie MI-3 looks some what inspired from James bond series. Ok, about action for which Tom cruise is know, is slightly near expectation, but not extraordinary.

Mission Impossible-3 loses lot of ground at many places, and after giving two excellent movies, our expectations from Tom cruise will be definitely more. One more lose point of movie is Tom cruises single handed try to carry the movie o

A suicide of an educated girl

Suicides are common part of our society and we have learned to live with them. We are not much worried about their effect on our lives. We just listen to these news and move forward, without giving any attention to them. We do not consider that one day we may come on the same cross road. As par my knowledge, suicidal situations arises when person find him incapable of facing the real life situation. He or she loses all hopes and decides to do suicide. Recently, a highly educated girl from Himachal Pradesh (India) committed suicide. Why? Because, the boy whom she was going to married, was demanding huge money and a luxury car. Girl’s parents have no option, but to agree to these demands. However, if they have gone for it, they will be going to be in big trouble. While realizing all this and finding herself guilty for all this, she committed suicide. Now question is who is guilty? Boy, Boy’s parent, Society, Girl’s parent or girl herself. You may agree with me or not, I feel strongly tha

Story of two sisters

Story of two sisters She was looking outside the window and gazing something. She was an old woman in her seventies. Her face was pale yellow. She was looking, as she was in great grief. Her eyes were cold without any expression. It looked that she had lost all the hopes from her life. At present, she was at her younger sister’s house. Her sister which was in early seventies, was a more vibrant and energetic woman. Both sisters have lost their husbands. I wondered why there was such a difference in appearance of these two sisters. What has happened in last fifty years which have changed their outlook towards life? The answers can be found in their lives. The sister which was sad has started her life with lot of happiness and richness. She was got married to a very rich and smart man. However, her luck has not favored her; she lost her all wealth with the passage of her life. Her husband became a drunkard and sold everything they own. Her children are no more interested in taking her re

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication. It gives us an inside look into the lives of Muslims in India and relationships between Hindu and Muslim communities in India. It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re

Internet Television- A reality today

Panic Selling

Panic selling these two words, we hear very often whenever there is huge dip in market. It may be share market, other commodity market or food markets. Much news about the panic selling we hear in crashing market and how many people losing their hard earned money? Now what are these panics selling and who these panic sellers are?

Last week there was a news of a share market investor losing 50 crore rupees in market and finally caught trying to do suicide. Panic selling can be done by anyone by a big, small or medium investor.

Why some people only follow?

Why some people only follow?It can be seen in every part of world that most of the people in this world are followers. They believe in following others and not leading them. This statement even may be true for me as a writer or for you as a reader. Now this follower ship can be direct or implied one. This is not our fault because in our life, we learn most of the things by following others. We learn walking by following the steps of our parents. Moreover all this is present in the basic nature of all living beings; it may be man or animal world. Most of the animals live in groups and one leader leads them. It is also seen in real life situation that in difficult situations most of people only follow e.g. in a train accident it was proved that many people lost their lives by following others in the wrong direction without using their own intelligence. Yes, this is the fate of most of the follower in this world. I do not want to say that following is bad but following someone without usi

Mutual funds and their role in wealth management

Mutual funds can play a vital role in creating wealth management. The way of creating wealth through mutual funds is highly suitable for people who do not want to take much risk. Though there are also some risks associated with mutual funds. People can lose their hard earned money by investing in mutual funds. However, for people who can afford to take some risk, mutual funds provides an attractive offer. The major advantage with the mutual funds is that with investing in the mutual funds we are not required to think or plan much, only what we need is a good mutual fund which can offer us a considerable return. In the last five years mutual funds in India have seen a considerable growth in penetration and returns. Many people have got benefited with this boom of mutual funds. People who are earlier shy of investing in share market, where investing in mutual funds. Today mutual funds are available for everyone, from a common man to a big money owner.

Why I sometime don’t know?

Why I sometime don’t know? I am unable to get the answer to this simple question that why I sometime don’t know, what I want in life? What is good for me? And what will be perfect choice for me? I always wonder why there are so many choices. All these are only making my life some more difficult to live. The smart I try to become, more fool I came out in the end. Is this the story of my life? or others are also suffering from it. I feel to some extant we all are suffering from it. Severity of this depends on the personal nature of a person and how he takes the life. The other reason behind all this is not having any clear guidelines for life or simply not having trust on our self and on our loved ones. It is very difficult to measure the deepness of this question. It is this question which makes us to continuously wonder about the future. The answer to this question is not more intelligence because with more intelligence this question becomes more complicated. The only answer to this qu

Srimad Bhagavad Gita – A great science to live life.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita is not only a religious book whom we should pay respect rather it is the voice of God himself written in words. Bhagavad Gita is same powerful as the God himself. It provides us with unique and simple way to become God our self. You may say how a man can become God or if the powers of God given to man then he may start destroying other human beings. This is not true, if one read Gita step by step and simultaneously implement it in his life then he can attain the Godhood, then he will no more be a common human being. He will become a person who has lifted himself above from greed, selfishness and worldly desires. He no more requires big achievements but still he do miracles. People who will really and heartedly follow Gita will never live a life of sufferer in this world. He will not only transform his own life but also change the life of many. By spreading the message about Gita, I am not trying to spread any religion. The sayings of Gita find a comfortable place w
