New video : independence day special

Hey guys it’s me back again presenting you another video but this time it’s dedicated to our beautiful country. The song is performed by my “Nana” (maternal grandfather) and on the guitar, it’s one and only the PHENOMENAL Abhinnshyam. It’s not an inspirational blog but this song will represent the last संगत between the two generations.

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.”

India, independent ?

When our leaders were bursting their heart out for the country. What they thought deep inside

They thought they can make a India where the mind is without fear. 

They got what they want but for what measures and for what price

The blood shredded of our heroes les the way to independence.

But is India really free from all the things the Legends wanted it to be. 

If our heroes would be alive they would surely say that ‘We got the nation free at the price of our people’s thinking’

Let’s make India Great again.

“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला 

मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला, मेरा रंग दे

मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला ओये, रंग दे बसंती चोला
माये रंग दे बसंती चोला 

दम निकले इस देश की खातिर बस इतना अरमान है
एक बार इस राह में मरना सौ जन्मों के समान है
देख के वीरों की क़ुरबानी अपना दिल भी बोला
मेरा रंग दे…

जिस चोले को पहन शिवाजी खेले अपनी जान पे
जिसे पहन झांसी की रानी मिट गई अपनी आन पे
आज उसी को पहन के निकला, पहन के निकला
आज उसी को पहन के निकला, हम मस्तों का टोला
मेरा रंग दे…

Rakshabandhan : the purity which can’t be understood

Raksha Bandhan is a popular festival in India, especially North India. The festival depicts the love of brothers and sisters. On this day sisters tie a thread called ‘Rakhi’ around her brother’s wrist. She prays to God for the safety of her brother and to lead him to good path.The brother in return gives her sweets and blesses her with good wishes. 


Raksha Bandhan is not only for meant for siblings, but for protection for any loved one. ‘Raksha’ means protection and ‘bandhan’ means bond. Hence the festival does not signify bond between a brother and sister only.

Once Indra, the God of Heaven was about to go into battle and was feeling a little apprehensive. When his wife tied a sacred thread to his arm for his protection and assurance all his fears vanished and he was successful in all his endeavors. From then on began the tradition of celebrating Raksha Bandhan. A festival of protection for loved ones. I think people are being led away from the true meanings of some happenings because they follow traditions, instead of finding the true meaning and stems of these traditions.

Freedom

Bird in a cage

We Set free

Soaring in the sky…

Freedom

All cherish

Reaching a new high

Statue of Liberty’s

Raised torch of hope

Liberty Bell

Sending chimes

From years gone by

Iconic symbols

Of freedom and peace

Truthful path of ahimsa

Mahatma Gandhi laid

Relentless effort and passion

Nelson Mandela made

Nations greet each

Stalwart of freedom

We all seem to devalue

What we have in hand…

Freedom’s duty

And responsibility

Freedom’s precious

Let’s not forget

Protect thy freedom

Also protect others

The Raisina hill : {all you need to know about the area of the leaders}

THE HISTORY

A well-drained, healthy area between the Delhi Ridge and the Yamuna River, it provided ample room for expansion.
