The Ganga !! Some facts about the sea goddess

The River Ganges or Ganga is perhaps the holiest river in any religion. Though equally polluted, it bears immense significance to the Hindus. Ganga originates from the Gangotri glacier at Gaumukh in the Indian Himalayas at 4,100 meters above sea level, and flows 2,525 km across northern India before meeting the Bay of Bengal in the east India and Bangladesh. As a river, the Ganga contributes to more than 25 per cent of India’s total water resources.

Besides being a sacred river, Ganga is also worshiped as a deity in Hinduism and respectfully referred to as ‘Gangaji’ or ‘Ganga Maiya’ (Mother Ganga).
The various myths associated with Ganga and staunch Hindu beliefs associated with the river sanctify it as a goddess. Hindus view goddess Ganga as a fair complexioned beautiful woman wearing a white crown with a water lily and a water pot in her hands, and riding her pet crocodile.

Kun Faya Kun

Kun Faya Kun Meaning: The origin is from the arabic words “Kun” which means “to be” or “to exist” & “Faya Kun” means “it is”. So the literal translation of Kun Faya Kun is “Be ,and it is”. The word is not only Arabic but if you do a translation of “be, and it is” in hindi, you’ll get the same “kun Faya Kun” in response. 

Kun Faya Kun is one of the rare songs that had me totally floored from the first moment I heard it. Easily one of AR Rehman’s and Irshad Kamli’s finest works, the beauty of the song is not just in the words or the music but in the complete conceptualization.

The meaning of this song is that God is always there in the world for us. When there’s nothing with us, he was there (जब कहीं पे कुछ नहीं भी नहीं था, वही था ।)

And the god is in all of us but is unknown and inscrutable (वो जो तुझमे समाया, वो जो मुझमे समाया, वही वही माया।)

This song is not for any religion or god, it’s just for that invisible and invincible being that’s present in every second of our life and activities

The real teaching of lord Krishna (Janmashtami special)

कर्मणयेवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।

मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि II

Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma phaleshou kada chana – You have a right to perform your prescribed duty,but you are not entitled to the fruits of actions

Ma Karma Phala Hetur Bhurmatey Sangostva Akarmani – Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.

In simple terms it means: Keep on performing your duties without expecting for any reward in return, leading a selfless life 


Lord Krishna was all about karma. From his early childhood as a Playboy to his stage as the GREATEST of all time, Krishna was justifying and flaunting of our own duties bending, if not overpowering the cycle of the great wheel of ‘fate’. Lord Krishna was called the ‘real’ god and he’s skillful than any of the other mythological legends

Lord Krishna told us to do what is right and never back down to fight against evil, even if it is conducted by your loved ones.

As it’s written in the Bhagwad Gita “happy are the warriors who obtain such an unsolicited opportunity for war which opens the door to heaven. Stand up and perform your duty and, therefore, fight with peace in thy soul.”

Gods and Legends

What defines a God ? God is the one with the supreme value, the creator of the world, the one that shows us the right path when the time is against us. But here’s a fact about the mighty name ‘God’. It is imperceptible. We never seen the being called ‘god’ and even if anyone did, there’s no embossed proof of the former. Many people will say that there are certain miracles or things transpired (like the invention of human life) which can receive our faith in God. So in short, god is a undeniable yet invisible thing or energy which reflects our Actions in our future. Examples of God : Lord Shiva, Krishna, Jesus Christ, Lord Ram, etc.

Now what defines a legend ? A legend is a mortal, destroyable, living or non living thing which inspires us living the life an ideal way. Legends goad is to go through things, not which are hypothetical but instead what’s transpired and have been done before. 

Hardwork, dedication and enthusiasm. The three creates an ordinary person into one of the the deserved ideals for the world to look on with a hope and motive. Examples of legends : The Ramayan, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Swami Vivekananda, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.

The bottom line is that both – legends and Gods are important to lead a satisfactory and ethical life. Where gods show us the path, legends show us how to walk on that path. Both are important in our life
