Thoughts on Republic Day

Republic day is celebrated on 26th January every year in India. The major reason behind the celebration of 26th January as Republic Day of India is that on 26th January 1950 India became fully sovereign nation because constitute of India came into force first time on this day. Another reason behind the celebration of Republic Day is rooted in Indian national congress’s decision to celebrate this day as Republic day of India every year during the Lahore session. From 1950, Indians are observing 26 January as Republic day of India. On this day, the whole nation remains on holiday and people of India salute the sovereignty of India by hoisting Indian Flag. This day is celebrated at different levels and in all parts of India.

This day is also used to show the muscle power of armed forces and diversity of Indian culture. More or less Republic days of most of nation resemble with each other and to some extent, our Republic day celebrations also come under the same category. I remember my childhood day when we lined up in front of TV sets to watch Republic day parade streamed live on TV. On those days, large numbers of people specially visit Delhi to watch this event live from the Rajpath, however, today this enthusiasm for the Republic day is missing in people and very less number of people really seems interested in visiting Delhi for watching Republic day parade.

It is not easy for me to predict what has caused this change or we need to change Republic day celebrations for making them more attractive or we allow everything to happen as it is happening. Today, India has seen growth in many segments and thinking of many people about life has also changed. Present Indians are busier with their life and work and second, we are also becoming a part of the global village where no boundaries exist. Therefore, nobody knows exactly that what future has stored for us, however, one thing is clear that we are heading for some non-stoppable changes.

Book Review-“Living with the Himalayan Masters”

India holds a great history behind it which is full of many cultures, traditions, religions and wisdom, however, today the major problem with most of the youth of India is that it is forgetting the importance of ancient India cultures. One of the major attractions of our culture is life lived by great mystics and masters in Himalayas. From many centuries, this tradition is very much prevalent in India according to which people go to Himalayas for becoming one with higher conscious.

These great masters and mystics follow the path of renunciation (leaving comforts and pains of world both mentally and physically). We all must have heard number of stories associated with these great masters, however, due to lack of information and knowledge we mostly find it hard to know the real truth. For an ordinary person, it is very difficult to exactly know or understand the life of our saints and masters. Most of the time, these people are believed as mad, psychics, frauds because we do not know or …

Alert for E-mail users

Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using our email accounts and avoid responding or accepting number of reward or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become the victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter. However, still large numbers of people are not aware about these kinds of frauds and become the victim of them. Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic. Target of these mails are mostly new online users who have no knowle…

Review- Namastey London-A definite Hit

First day of Namastey London received a massive response from the people, as all the shows are house full in Ludhiana. Moreover next three days are already advance booked and this demand for film may increase in future. First things without going any details, this is a must watch movie and must-must watch for all the Punjabi's because it is very sweet to listen Katrina Kaif pronouncing few Punjabi quotes. This is good romantic story which stresses many issues, points and situations which are affecting us in present time.Akshay Kumar acting is also fine and he has done a good touching acting in this movie. Director Vipul Amrutlal Shah will definitely be a happy man after the successful of his formula in Namastey London.
