By now everyone must have seen blogs with attractive quotes and messages that completely rock you from the bottom! No wonder am here to do the same.. But whatever I have written in this post is truly my own perspective of things!
India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; She lives and has still something to do for herself and her Children of this nation!
India is a land of great heritage and a land with morals. But do we know everything, even if we know everything are we respecting those heritage? We should be proud in announcing the world that its our country and our great Sadhu's who has imparted the Art of Meditation and Yoga to the rest of the world. Everyone comes here and learn that art to make themselves hail and healthy! Also meditation increases our concentration power and helps in realizing oneself! I wanted to quote Bhagawad gita here and also its explanation. This Sloka is the conversation between arjuna and Lord Sri Krishna.
This Verse comes from the sixth chapter, DHYANA YOGA which portrays the importance of yoga and self-realisation
yada hi nendriyarthesu
na karmasv anusajjate
"A person is said to be elevated in yoga when, having renounced all material desires, he neither acts for sense gratification nor engages in fruitive activities"
But how many of us are aware of all these in our Bhagvad gita? My mom taught me Bhagvad gita when I was in my eighth class only for the sake of winning a competition. But later, she wanted me to learn the entire Gita which will provide wonderful vibrations for our inner self. But after my mom I wanted to learn this and hence joined the class. But to my dismay I found none in my age group and those who came to the class was aged 60 to 70! The reason is the lack of interest,awareness and the diminished moral values.
People these days value more for money more than anything, even more than relationships. I must mention My blogger friend Bharathi's article about money minded people with the topic "Money Fetish"! I too accept money is needed for our life, but money is not everything. Segregating people based on money is atrocious! Inflation has affected the middle class people the worst. The basic staple food and vegetables take up the entire monthly income.
People into commerce field must have heard about a quote:
Previously, "it was pocket full of money and basket full of products.."
But inflation resulted in, "basket full of money and pocket full of products!" - Analyze it, you will understand the reality!
Is the budget is being designed for a common man?! The answer is NO!!Budget before 7 years seemed to be normal and welcoming. But off late what happened was the increase in prices all over the country which left many of us perplexed. "Richer becomes richer and poorer becomes poorer"! We too know what is happening around our country and what is happening in our politics! But how many of us have the courage in asking them what the hell is happening in our country. If someone asks ,may be we can get a solution! Who will be that person to provide dawn for our country?
We don't even dare to ask what's happening in our neighborhood! Recently I happened to go out with my neighbor for some shopping by bus. While I was standing in the bus stand a middle aged man came near me and dashed my shoulder. I felt anger rising in me. But my neighbor pushed me to the other side. Seeing this that man came again and dashed with me and told some opprobrious words. I decided am not going to leave that man. But my neighbor told me that being a girl I shouldn't fight with a man in public. Knowing my neighbor's advice to me, that man came and pulled down my dhupatta. I slapped him instantly and started shouting, I completely lost my temper. Prejudicing this situation already my neighbor, in order to protect herself went away leaving me alone. A guy, probably 23 years old came to my rescue and asked me to move away! This is a very simple incident, if my neighbor (being some 10 years elder to me), thought of asking that man and helping me, the situation wouldn't have worsened. But she didn't dare asking him! Why the mentality is like this?! Shouldn't girls speak or protect themselves in public? We are bold enough to handle the situations, but being weaker sex we aren't allowed to get the rights entitled to us.
Racism is the talk of the town now. Why should we goto other countries in search of knowledge when it is available in plenty in our own country! We forget that its our country who taught the world concept of calculation! If we stay in our own country, all these brutal killings and revilements could have been forestalled! But Foreign degree and the dollar veils them the true face of vilifications! It would've reached the peak before people understand the reality!
RECESSION is another factor which is still a night mare for fresh graduates like me. The entrance exam of a government organization saw a 47% hike in the number of students appearing for the particular post! Younger coevalses like us, study in our country, go to higher studies in foreign countries. When they get placed in some MNC's earning a few lacks per month. The taste of money makes them go after it forgetting our Mother India. "Money has never made any man happy and more the money more the probability of you losing a good night's sleep". They realize it only when something dear to them slips away!
Its our own country which is providing us the ample opportunities for all classes of people. We study here, gain knowledge, goto other country and uses that knowledge in bringing up that country! Why cant we employ those noesis to our own country and make it as a super power?! Google and Wiki map and the two satellite mapping tools present till date. But our country in view of celebrating the anniversary of scientist Vikram Sarabhai is going to launch Bhuvan. Unlike the other two webmaps, Bhuvan will focus only on the Indian sub-continent. Bhuvan, meaning earth, is the addition to the numerous scientific innovations by SAC and is a satellite mapping tool.
WHAT BHUVAN MEANS TO INDIANS :
|Zoom levels up to 200 meters||Zoom levels up to 10 meters|
|Single layer information||Multi-layer information|
|Images upgraded every 4 years||Images upgraded every year|
|No alternate viewing options||Options of viewing on different dates|
|Uses international satellites||Uses Indian satellites|
This is the information I saw in yesterday's TOI, Chennai Edition! I really got goose bumps after reading this information! We are advancing our technological innovations in a multifold! Thanks to those brains that are maneuvering behind BHUVAN!
- Why do we require other countries to provide us jobs?!
- Why cant we become a entrepreneur(Am mentioning only the people having plenty of money, who gets confused about the best investment!)?
- When are we going to prove the cozy politicians that we are not stupid's?
- When can ladies feel secured?
- Will we have young, Vibrant, powerful leaders?
These are the questions that ponder me always! Will I ever get answers to these questions? I leave the Future, as I believe "Future has the best possible solutions of our today's problems!"
Lets hope that our country faces illume soon! Sooner the better!
I don't want to criticize anyone. These are the thoughts that I muse myself. Just wanted to reflect my thoughts as words. Hope I did justice to the subject I have taken. If I am wrong in someone's eyeshot, then Excuse me!
