रावण दहन 

रावण नाम सुनते ही मन में एक बुराई की , असत्य की , पापी की छवि याद आजाती है ,और दशहरे पर प्रभु श्री राम का रावण को मारकर तम पर , पाप पर , असत्य पर विजय पाने की वह अजेय , अभेद्य  बाण चलाते हुई छवि याद आजाती है।

परंतु आज के परिवेश में सोचने पे मजबूर हो गई हूँ कहीं यह सब मिथ्या तो नहीं ? आज बात बात में अनायास मुँह से निकला वह मरा कहाँ ? वह तो सभी के मनों पर राज कर रहा है ।

 क्या रावण की कपाल क्रिया हुई थी ? या नहीं ?

 “कहीं उसके दस सर सहस्र सर बनकर हमारे मस्तिष्क के किसी कोने में तो नहीं बस गए ? “

विवेक व संयम का गहना त्याग अविवेकता और अहम का पर्चा लहरा रहे हैं । 

अपने मस्तिष्क पर ज़ोर डालें तो पिछले कुछ दिनो के घटनाक्रम में तो यह भी पाया कि श्री राम से बदला लेने के लिए हर उस व्यक्ति पर राज़ करने लगता है जिसका नाम में ही राम हो । 

संतों का राम निकल गया जिनके नाम में राम थे आशारम , राम वृक्ष , राम पाल और अब यह राम रहीम , अब किस किस राम का राम निकलने वाला है ऐसा सोचकर ही रोयें खड़े हो जाते हैं । जो हमें भगवान का मार्ग दिखने चाहिए वे स्वयंभू भगवान बन बैठे हैं । 

हालत तो ऐसी भायी ,ज्यों बड़ा त्यों घाघ, 

अन्दर से गीदड़ भये , ओढ़े चोला बाघ ॥ 

 दुनिया देखो अंधी भयी ,पकड़न जिनके पग ,

ओछी उतनी सोच हुई , जितना ऊँचा पद ॥ 

 नाम के राम भए , रावण के करते काम ,

मुँह में राम बग़ल में छुरी करते सब आराम ।। 

गुरु हुआ अर्थहीन , मगन भाए मोह मद काम 

रामपाल हो या राम वृक्ष ; राम- रहीम या आसाराम ।।

Pursuit of happiness

विद्वत्त्वं च नृपत्वं च नैव तुल्यं कदाचन । 

स्वदेशे पूज्यते राजा विद्वान् सर्वत्र पूज्यते ॥ 
Scholar and King are not comparable. King is worshipped in his country, while Scholar is worshipped everywhere.  
This was stated by Chanakya and I believe it to hold true.  . In the series of interactions with wonderful people in the past few days , I gained plenty of amazing experiences. 

I am glad to share my view that the World is far more beautiful when seen through eyes of friends

who are wise , intellelligent and Pure at heart . 

They have taught me “Happiness is just a vision ” to view happiness you need eyes wide open. Mind should be broad enough to know whatever you have is by God’s grace and is enough to keep you happy :):) .
Friends , I am sharing what they said to me to overcome the feelings of depression or as it is fashionable these days to say “I am feeling low today “.  
Friends think positive and whenever you feel low don’t let this feeling overpower you , instead just pull yourself up.

Do whatever makes you happy , buy yourself a gift , flowers , books or anything. Girls can even get dressed nicely n click a selfie or go get your pedicure manicure done .. or like I do cook something good and eat even if it’s only a 2 minutes maggie :):) and see the change in how you feel . 
I will share in future also more remedies taught by my wise friends ..”Nivedita”

Best accessories to buy for your kid this monsoon

The monsoon is always something to look forward to, since it comes after the long and scorching summer.

Since I have a 12 year old daughter, I understand how difficult it is to keep your child safe from the various infectious diseases during monsoon. My daughter loves the rainy season, especially playing in the water puddles. But little does she know that her 30 minutes of happiness might bring bucket loads of tension for me. Still, I let my daughter enjoy herself and do not dampen her spirits.

Just let your child too enjoy the monsoon freely with these protective and ultra-stylish accessories:

rain-boots-umbrella-wetUmbrellas: Gone are the days of giant umbrellas with drab designs! Bring a wide smile to your little one’s face this monsoon by buying them their favourite cartoon character printed umbrellas. Not only will these ensure absolute safety, but will also add to their style quotient.

Rain Coats: It’s a given that rain jackets are vital for the monsoon wardrobe, but forget about those plain raincoats. Adorn your kids in these attractive and eye-popping raincoats this monsoon instead!

Rain Boots: Shoes for kids must be bought with extreme care. Kids love to play in the muddy puddles, splashing water around and sailing paper boats in there. Don’t worry moms! There are some awesomely designed rain boots this season.

Waterproof Watches: Fashion is always on my little one’s mind. So I have to be particular about her likes and dislikes. She is really fond of watches, hence I suggest waterproof watches as well.

Still, the mother in me cannot surely say that my child will be 100% safe from the mosquitoes breeding outside. During monsoon, standing water and puddles are a breeding ground for mosquitoes. It is crucial to prevent mosquito bites. But it’s not possible on the part of innocent kids to shoo them off!

That is why I trust only Good knight which has launched a really unique product. I am in love with their Fabric Roll-On!

Good knight Fabric Roll-On: It is a revolutionary way of repelling mosquitoes – it’s a 100% natural product made of citronella & eucalyptus oil. By just applying 4 dots of the Roll-On on clothes (it’s non-staining), one can stay protected from mosquitoes for up to 8 hours. Falling under the category of Personal Repellents (PR), it is an ingenious product for outdoor mosquito protection. And it is even more important to use mosquito repellent on kids when they are outdoors as dengue and chikungunya spreading mosquitoes bite during the daytime when kids are at school or out playing.

I am very sure that these accessories would have the desired effect on your kids this rainy season. You can set them free and let them enjoy the rains!  

जीयो और जीने दो 

नन्ही मुस्कान को ज़रा पलने दो ,

मत तोड़ो उसे ,अभी खिलने दो ,

नयी कलियों को प्रस्फुटित होने दो ,

जो है सो है जैसा है उसे रहने दो

रज़ा उसकी मर्ज़ी में होने दो,

सुख दुःख के फेर शाश्वत है ,चलने दो ,

जो कहते हैं उन्हें कहने दो ,

सुनो सबकी, अपने मन की होने दो ,

बहते हुए भावों को ,अविरल बहने दो 

फल अच्छा या बुरा , मिलने दो 

ख़ुश रहो और ख़ुशी से रहने दो 

ज़्यादा नहीं तो बस “जियो और जीने दो “..  “निवेदिता “

P.S. : बेटियाँ  बाग़ में खिलती कलियों के समान हैं उन्हें प्रोत्साहित करो और आगे बढ़ने दो । बेटी को बचाओ और उन्हें पढ़ने दो ..
