The Jaipur Literature Festival, or JLF, is an annual literary festival which takes place in the Indian city of Jaipur each January.

International Men’s Day urges men to teach the boys in their lives the values, character and liabilities of being a man. Mahatma Gandhi said, “We must become the change we seek.” It is only when we all, both men and women, lead by example that we will create a fair and safe society which allows everyone the opportunity to prosper.

Jawaharlal Nehru has left behind the legacy of the right to education and development for children in our country. His love for children is celebrated as Children’s Day on his birthday every year on 14th November. Moreover, his speech, “Tryst with Destiny”, in the Parliament to the Constituent Assembly which was given on the eve of India’s Independence, became quite popular for a lot of reasons. One such was when he cited: “We have to build the noble mansion of free India where all her children may dwell,” he had said in the speech. Read this small blog where you will find some of Jawahar Lal Nehru’s thought-provoking quotes that have inspired the generations. You will find poems on children’s day, which are written by me as an Author (Shivi Goyal). Here’s a look at Children’s Day Poems and Quotes

 

History-Of-Children’s-Day

 

Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Jawahar Lal Nehru

Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is free will. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

Ignorance is always afraid of change. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

You can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of its women. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history when we step out from the old to the new when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

Evil unchecked grows, evil tolerated poisons the whole system. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

What we really are matters more than what other people think of us. – Jawahar Lal Nehru

 

Poems by me: 

My princess

The greatest gift God has given me

When she was born, I was complete

Conception itself is a miracle

She gave me the reason to love and grow

It is the start of new life and good health, mentally

Such a treasure is your precious child

Hold them close to you

Sing with them

Dance with them

Talk to them

Then, you will realise their hugs and kisses are life-giving

They can be messy and murky

They can be wet with the dampened diapers

Or dirty clothes and floors with colours everywhere

But the colours they spread in our lives

The love, they bring in, is worth to live for

Parenthood is a miracle

Live it, love it, and make it worth for our children

I Thank God to give me my princess, Chiya

 

princess children day

 

Don’t Ground Me Under

A kid’s voice in today’s world can be this as well
where one day we see the best in the world for our children
There exist this side as well
A little kid cites:
Please don’t kill me
Please don’t hate me
Do not ask me to beg
Please do not hurt me with abusive language
I’m kid please do not shove me around
Let me dream, please do not kill my evolving dreams

If I get lost, bring me back, don’t sell me
Don’t stick my wanted or missing pictures
I’m not a toy for you to use as a sex toy
I’m not a flower to crush and have nectar
Don’t use me for your gains
Do not crush me with rape
Tricking me for lust and money is a crime
I’m not a speck of dirt please do not treat me like this

My innocence is not for sale
Please don’t teach my hypocrisy
Something which you don’t do, don’t teach me
Just stop making a hero or princess for tomorrow
Stop nipping my talent for your monetary benefits
Don’t leech, don’t preach
Stop being judgemental on my cuteness
Stop committing sins and preaching me to do so
your fears are yours don’t make them mine
Don’t criticise me for your misconceptions and blunders,

Please let us be kids
Let us be the way we are
As we are the future
When we will grow the way we shall
We will make you proud

Stop mistreating
As we are the hope for the world
We can spread love and kindness the way it is needed
We can change your fate
We can be on our own, but without your prejudice
We, the children, have no day to celebrate
Let us celebrate!

 

Happy Children’s Day!

Shades of love in our lives

Every emotion has a purpose in our lives, so as love is entitled to several kinds of emotions. Life is not always about happy relationships neither it is about sad relationships. It is what we experience in our day to day lives is what makes our actions and reactions determined towards particular persons. Do we really understand all the shades of love in our lives? When we say we are in love, do we mean it or it is just an emotion? 

Love is not an emotion

A lot of people still does not understand the real meaning of love. Love is not about possessiveness or putting your loved ones close to you always. People look to love as a property that has to be received and preserved. To assume that others are ought to provide it to us so that our life is loaded with love is the biggest misconception, which is the foundation of our sadness. It is not like any other object or a thing to be acquired. At times, even if some other person offers an abundance of love, we may not be able to take it or feel it the way it is being given.

Later, it becomes normal to blame others for not being with us or loving us. We do not give our mind some rest or pause to think about what can be right or wrong and we get swayed into emotions of disappointment. What I wanted to convey in this blog is shades of love in our lives but it is not an emotion. Why I feel it because I believe in the power of good emotions and positivity. Now when we get attracted to someone is not love it is an emotion which generates from our well-being (clubbed with heart and mind).

 

shades of love blogger

Just express your kind of love

What I wanted to talk about is self-love, let us all inculcate the feeling of self-love as one of the shades of love in our lives. Let us interlock and generate a feeling of love by making self-competent through relevant changes in our dealings with others. There is no other way to love and be loved in the world. The dynamic intimacy that lacks sweet feelings is not loved but lust. People often neglect to consider love as divine in its true essence. While dealing with others as well, let us ensure that our direct communications make them cheerful. You can help them by talking and assisting them to come out of their issues.

Yes, it is possible and not a problem anymore, it is just we have to realise and make it in action. Try to, appreciate their successes and be nice for the help granted from them. All these activities are just to express your kind of love.

Shades of love with self-love

The perk of proffering love to others is that it advances to our heart and makes us associated with others. It also offers confidence and security, eliminates fear and gives a feeling of being generous towards other people. One can get to know love by first forming before-mentioned feelings of being good to others. You only tell me, how can a person feel the love from counterparts if he /she is filled with ego, selfish tendencies and anger? These negative emotions are the devils and they crush the inner urge to love others.

ShiviOctober 3, 20196min10142

Before you begin I would like to quote, that Love is immortal and there is something very special about love and relationships. This blog is not about any specific love or relationships tips and tricks but it will certainly give an insight into the eternal feeling of love and its essence. Keep reading Is love like weed or vice-versa…

As the title suggests is Love like weed or is Weed Like Love or Vice-versa. I would like to mention few points wherein we can relate our love feelings with weed (PS: this does not impose anyone to consume weed or any other kind of a drug, this is just a writer’s poetic compilation)

love an emotion

Holistic love

– Love is deep and connects every emotion of our lives. If I try to connect with weed here, many of us would agree that love has its forms of weed. What weed does is what love is. The approach is to understand that humans who consider love to equal to weed are not ruled always. Delving into literal terms will not make any sense here. The secret lies in acknowledging and holistically expressing love.

Immortal love

– with every stash of weed or a joint, we tend to get stoned into some other world only. Why this happens, it is because of the essence of the substance which makes you feel this way. Now, when we say love is immortal we consider this notion to be out of the world. When someone is in love the feeling is strong and overwhelming. We, tend to forget that it will not last forever and may end someday like a joint’s smoke. Considering this phenomenon acknowledging love for one-self gets lost and we tend to drag our lives into vain and no-where. Instead, try being you, and real, get in love with yourself so that eventually you get the path of immortal love.

The comparison and verdict of is love like weed

The idea of depicting just the two above is not the end of the explanation. Rather, numerous people take the wrong path in the name of weed, calling it love. The message what I wanted to portray is, not to consume weed, rather just be mindful of your relationships. Pay some respect to the person you love, be faithful to you first, then you can be loyal to others. Weed may get you to the wrong path, let love not do this to you. Be compassionate and kind. In my opinion, love can’t be like weed always as the strong point of weed are directly proportional to the bad points of love.

Keep loving and discovering yourself, this is the key for Kalyug.

About World Tourism Day

The World Tourism Day celebration was inaugurated by the United Nations World Tourism Organization in the year 1980 which is celebrated every year at 27th September. This special day was selected in order with all the laws of the UNWTO that came into power in the year 1970 which is acknowledged as the big landmark for the global tourism as it endeavours to aware people about the notable role of the tourism inside the international community as well as to exhibit how the social, economic, cultural, political values are affected by it globally.

This Year’s Theme

The theme of the day was “sustainable tourism”, in 2017. In 2018 the theme was “Tourism and the Digital Transformation”. This Year it is sustainable tourism worldwide.

This year world tourism day is celebrated with the theme of sustainable tourism worldwide. With the recent speech of Greta Thunberg at U.N. – it is quite visible that we all need to stop hoping and praying. It is time to act and make it happen. If we keep on hoping and praying for climate change, our nations, our environment, our tourism industry will extinct. The agencies and countries’ tourism boards with the involvement of government are focusing on sustainable tourism as a tool for development. They believe and suggest that to raise awareness the travellers shall make their purpose of travel towards climate change and environment safe tourism.

What Change We Can Bring

Keeping in mind tourism big magnetism thanks to its social, political, financial and also cultural effect, meriting, and value, UNTWO aims to feature and appreciate the dedication the tourism industry indicates in fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals. Tourism has become the continuously evolving and emerging economic sectors worldwide because of the existence of various engaging and new destinations for tourists. So it has become the main root of income ‎for the developing countries.

This is, not the first time the theme is on sustainable change in tourism. It is seen for the past few years where issues on the environment, biodiversity, tourism and water, community development, cultural protection etc. have been raised and spread awareness about them. In fact, in the year 2017, the theme of world tourism day was “Sustainable Tourism – a tool for development”. This year the event will be officially organized in Budapest, Hungry, to spread awareness and promote people to take action. It will focus on raising consciousness on technologies and possibilities in the tourism industry among all operatives with the respective interest of helping the sector equip for future of work on tourism’s actual and inherent contribution to sustainable development.

Tourism For a Cause

I’m a traveller and have been to numerous destinations. I have started travelling 8 years back, initially, it was my passion and nomad heart that led me to new cultures, people, and diverse landscapes. Gradually with the years passing by when I saw nature’s aggressive moves in the forms of floods, witnessed snow avalanches, landslides etc. I used to wonder why nature is not happy and showing us it’s wrath. I used to think about the reasons for all incidences occurring. This gave a hunch to inculcate the awareness of climate change and cleanliness to the people who would I meet while travelling. Furthermore, would like to mention that I do not work for an NGO, neither an organization, I’m just a traveller and a writer. But I make sure I do my bit when I travel and keep my surroundings clean and organic. Will not stretch it much, but significantly wanting to emphasis on biodiversity, cultural changes, sustainable tourism to all the travellers out there.

 

The European Council on Tourism and Trade President Dr Anton Caragea says “Tourism is the best teacher on the planet.”

 

To end I leave you all with a quote:

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

The soul is your guru #gurupurnima – The awakening

Connecting to your real guru in life is a tough job, many of you’ all would relate to what I meant to say here. We all go, behind the delusion of finding our real guru in life, who would guide us and show us a path of peace and nirvana. Today we are living in a world of uncertainty where things change with a blink. However, we all keep on trying to mould ourselves to these abrupt changes but we get shaken up and get disturbed with the consequences. What we shall do then? Here what is crucial to know Is that we seek guidance and perseverance to overcome this turbulence in life. And that’s when we need to have a Guru in our lives.

How do we achieve, how do we find one, is all our destiny and luck? We get whatever is stored for us.

On the advent of Guru Purnima here’s what I feel one should know

According to me and my life’s experience, your ultimate guru is your soul. Yes, the soul which is immortal and is spiritual to the almighty. This inner voice is your world, within you, which balance your mind and heart. Now if we can figure out a way to connect directly with our soul we will be shining like a star forever. Which though in real life seem to be a tough one. As we all live in Kalyug today, this window of pure connection hazes. But mark my words – as the spiritual master is someone who is master of all the inner worlds. The one who’s consciousness is at the highest level and mingles tremendously with the outer world.

 

meditation blog

The whole idea is to awaken the soul by putting all our energies into one manifold which is our inner realms. For many of us, our soul is dormant for ages but we can ignite it with all our mental capacities and meditation. The soul is the God Like element which resides inside the Anahata centre – the heart chakra, that is in the centre of the chest and a little above.

Here’s a variation – one person’s soul may represent peace, another’s power, another can be joy and so forth. One can attain it all because if we master our soul to be our guru we have free access to the world’s power. This will eventually lead us to master the disciplines of the conscious mind.

SnakeMeditation - guru purnima

One can attain this balance by meditation. There are many other theories and therapies to attune the same. But meditation is the only matchmaker that can bridge the gap between your soul and outer world. It is like picking the generous wave, of the Guru’s mindfulness or like the dab of the thought merging for some time with the ocean waves. It is said that disciple is the key to everything in life and when you achieve it through meditation – Guru automatically appears. your heart and breath is your spiritual family which link it to your soul – the ultimate Guru

Legendary reggae singer and writer Bob Marley was the first international superstar to break the cold stereotypes connected with “third-world” countries and sell over 75 million albums worldwide. No doubt he is my favourite and he is the best.

Bob Marley recapitulates to inspire and acquaint with his lyrics and words, through his music as well as in recorded interviews and concerts. Today on World’s Music Day I’ve assembled some of his most uplifting quotes that can help lighten your day, and could even transform your life if it gets you into a greater frame of mind on a regular basis.

Let’s get started:

Beginnings are usually scary, and endings are usually sad, but it’s everything in between that makes it all worth living.

“Don’t worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright.”

“Don’t worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright.” ~Bob Marley

“Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.”

“Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.” ~Bob Marley

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.”

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.” ~Bob Marley

“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.”

bob-marley-quote-emancipate-yourself-mental-slavery

“Overcome the devils with a thing called love.”

“Overcome the devils with a thing called love.” ~Bob Marley

“The day you stop racing is the day you win the race.”

“The day you stop racing, is the day you win the race.” ~Bob Marley

“One good thing about music – when it hits you, you feel no pain.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Judge not, before you judge yourself. Judge not, if you’re not ready for judgement.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To end one last, which is my favourite:

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy.

Put your comments in the section below and let me know your thoughts. Keep sharing love guys! 

Cheers!

International Yoga Day – the thoughts and saying from the thinkers and believers.

“If you seek enlightenment, go to the root cause. Nothing exists without a cause. The root cause of enlightenment is compassion.”
-H.H. XIV Dalai Lama

yoga day

Buddha’s Teachings – the connection between yoga and Buddhism

The core of the Buddha’s teachings exists in the Four Noble Truths, expounded in his very first sermon following his enlightenment, which is Nirvana.

The first noble truth explained by the Buddha is Dukka: This says, Life is suffering and suffering is a reality.

The second truth expands – Samudaya, it elucidates that the cause of this suffering originates in our own minds.

The third noble truth, Nirodha, offers hope: it says, liberation and freedom from suffering is possible.

The fourth noble truth, Magga, gives one the method to attain liberation, known to Buddhists as the path of the “Middle Way.”

Buddhism, as well as yoga, acknowledges that there is affliction and that liberation from pain is possible. This biblical pedagogy holds that empathy is a vehicle for liberation. Meditation is a yogic practice used by Buddhists and yogis similarly to go beyond the variations of the mind (the dualistic thought process), to realize the Oneness of Being. Buddhists may call it void. Yogis may call it the untarnished self. Shakespeare said, “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

The compassionate Buddha was noted for saying –
“When we don’t have what we want, we are unhappy; when we do get what we don’t want, we are unhappy. Freedom comes when we are free from our wants, our preferences.”

The yogic text Astavakra Samhita states: One who thinks he is free is free, one who thinks he is bound is bound, as we think so we become. When one identifies with that which is eternal, one eventually becomes eternal.

Final thoughts

International Yoga Day is a reminder that we must keep our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health before anything else and take some time out to nourish and nurture it with yoga (it is a holistic approach). Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy International Yoga Day.

PS: The image had nothing to do with the prototypes and the existing phenomenon of Yoga and its benefits. It is for all the lovely people who demean themselves due to many reasons and hold back. go, let go, and fuck the world with the right attitude to make your future better.

relationship goals life hacks

We all must have been in a relationship whether long or short. But each one of us cannot deny that we have never been in a relationship. Apparently, we kept on thinking that how we all shall be happy in a relationship. We at times tend to be in our dreams or filmy Duniya – as we call it and try to match those love elements in real life. But there is a factor which you guys might miss on – is the essence of relationships and we ponder on why my relationship with my partner is not smooth or not moving in the right direction.

I am going to share some important tips and tricks for a happy relationship. You can call them life hacks as well and if you follow them, as per my belief, I can vouch that you end up being a happy couple. Let’s get to this blog:

Trust your partner

We should always trust our partners. I have seen a lot of men and women who keep a check on their respective partner’s mobiles or emails or etc. why guys?? If you trust them, what is the reason to do that? Trust me, if they want to hide something they will anyways do that. Most importantly having faith in each other is the recipe of a true relationship.

Trust your partner

Keep your egos aside

– Assume that there is a situation of hot discussion between you and your partner, what will you do? many times it ends up in cats and dogs fight – you know why because we clash our ego and cannot make it clam while it is needed the most. Will you try to make it up, you may find the answer is NO or sarcastic. The thought process is, if it’s not my mistake why should I say sorry, this is what we hear from a lot of couples.

Keep your egos aside

Guys when one person is angry other have to be calm, this is the mantra of a happy and successful relationship. Trust me you won’t be small if you somehow calm your partner.  In the long run, you and your partner will come closer to each other.  This is being tried by a lot of people and the results are astonishing.

Healthy Sex

we tend to think that how can sex help in having a good and happy relationship. Ohh, then, guys you are mistaken. A lot of tests and research is done and its proven scientifically that if a couple has sex 2-3 times in a week they are happier, mentally, socially and physically.  This is one of the crucial parts of a joyful relationship. Good sex not only releases stress but also bring us close to each other emotionally.

Healthy Sex lifestyle blog

Spend quality time

– With this fast moving life, we forget the importance of being with each other in both good and bad times. More we spend time with our partner better our relationship will be. Go for a walk with him/her may be for 15-20 min but that time shall be totally yours.  Or go on a dinner date with each other keeping your mobile phones aside. try to fetch out your time – talking about all things which both of you like. These things look kiddish but when you do it, you start feeling close to your partner. More you do it, closer you are.

Spend quality time lifestyle blog

Give Importance to each other’s work – This is another common problem that we see among couples. Especially, in the Indian context where men don’t give priority to his better half’s work or maybe females at the workplace. Giving equal importance to each other’s work will bring harmony and consent in a relationship. No Work is big or small and everyone’s work is important. If we understand this, the chances of having quarrel and fights will be minimal

Give Importance to each other's work

Share home chores Helping is caring – when we can teach our kids this, why can’t we do the same. Always help your partner in whatever he or she is doing. Be there in the home chores equally with them. The idea is to be with him or her. be there with her in the kitchen, assist her in kitchen stuff. it is not necessary that you should know about cooking. If he is washing his car she can help in that. These small things bring you closer. Similarly, she can be a help to him in his house stuff.

kitchen chores help lifestyle blog

Give Space – Always give some space to the person whom you are associated with. People say why you need privacy. I say that everyone needs it to be men or women. Giving privacy is not that they are cheating on you. There are times where they want to be with themselves without worrying about other things.  it is like rejuvenating oneself. They may be alone or with their friends or somewhere else where they may be just on their own. Trust me this is one of the important things which we tend to forget.

give space privacy lifestyle blog

These are some of the hacks that if you follow, it will not only increase the trust and love in your relationship but you will start enjoying each other’s company more, making your relationship to sustain for a long time.

 

Be Happy guys 🙂 Make your life better 🙂

Balance is Better, it is the theme this year. Everyone is promoting it and talking about gender equality. They are saying that there should be gender equality in our society and including UN Women and the United Nations support this theme – #balanceisbetter.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

Gender equality is not just a taboo or an issue prevalent in our societies but it is now like the disease that not only impacts women but it affects us all. With not stretching on feminism as I’m not a feminist to the core I would say this day and perhaps every day let’s get together to achieve gender equality, which will create a better future for all.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

As a woman, I have struggled slice by slice all through my life and still struggling with patriarchy and gender inequality in the workplace. Quit my job for my daughter to bring her up alone. I have no helping hand to support mentally and financially and what not I have been facing, but I’m not here to write about my story, in fact, no one’s story. I urge and wish to impact the women out there to be on your own and be strong in their decisions no matter they can be terrible but if you believe in them, in reality, no one can stop you. 

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

With my last year’s blog where I have given some examples and quotes of successful and strong women, I would like this year to be talking about equal rights for all humans. For me, a woman’s day is every day. Every single day the achievements and celebration of women shall be honoured and revered.

International Women’s Day is gleefully and profligately celebrated all over the world idolizing the notable contributions and achievements of women who have excelled in their corresponding domains. It is not essential that these women have to be the CEOs or owners of multinational companies; they can be an average woman making little or big contributions in their own way to the society. The agenda is to celebrate women’s achievement and raise awareness against bias in our own way. Take the action for gender equality and share equal ownership for driving gender parity on this International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained: “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.” So make International Women’s Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.

Gloria Steinem,
Gloria Steinem,

What I feel and wish to convey is a balanced world which is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world?

Happy Independence Day | Spirited Blogger Blog Freedom is never dear at any price,

It is the breadth of life.

What would a man not pay for living?

It is earned though!!

Happy Independence Day!!

 Happy Independence Day | Spirited Blogger Blog

Here we come again to our next independence day – this 15 August we are celebrating our 72nd independent day which was hard-earned by our soldiers and those who saliently fought for our nation. Maybe we can go to the history and the significance of our independence day before I get to what I really want to say in this short blog….

The story of India’s colonisation began with the arrival of the East India Company in our country in the 1600s. These merchants who came to trade in India soon started monitoring the military and administrative control. Gradually by 1757, they had established their foothold in many parts of the country. This unfair rule went on spreading the resentment among the countrymen and the local population. This is when the revolt took place against the British rule in 1857.

Thousands of soldiers and civilians were affected; there was bloodshed and many incidences which are not documented as well. Still moving ahead with these tragic incidences we attained freedom on 15th August 1947.

But what all has changed since and what we actually have comprehended from our freedom. Are we doing justice to all or to ourselves we also don’t know? I’m not going on the political or social cultural or any other stigma in particular here – this blog is just to remember those martyrs and soldiers who are the real heroes.

Independence Day and freedom from my eyes

Happy Independence Day | Spirited Blogger Blog

तिरंगे* ने मायूस होकर सियासत से पूछाये क्या हाल हो रहा है !

मेरा लहराने में कम और कफन में ज्यादा इस्तेमाल हो रहा है।

 …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

He that would make his own liberty secure in front of the world – must safeguard his enemy too from the opposition. For if he violates this responsibility he would establish a precedent that will reach you the way it has to be.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Let freedom control the time and power as the sun never set as glorious as the human achievement.

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Your freedom is brought to you by the courtesy of our soldiers and many outstanding Men and Women who serve and have served this country with honour, dedication, pride and sacrifice!    

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Freedom is nothing but a fair chance and an opportunity to be a better human being

 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Happy 72nd Independence Day 2018 | Blog | Quotes

God give us peace to live a healthy life,

Without peace, we can’t even achieve freedom

The connection to the soul is vital.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

The only way to deal with an un-free world is to become an absolutely free spirit that your very existence acts as a mark of a rebel.

Happy 72nd Independence Day 2018 | Blog | Quotes

Feel the freedom

Endeavour for peace

Supper love and let’s cease hate

India rich in cultural history

United in the diversity

My salute to the nation

Independent India

 Happy 72nd Independence Day 2018 | Blog | Quotes

To end this blog would like you all to go through the historic speech “Tryst with Destiny” – given by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru

“At the stroke of the midnight hour, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, find utterance. “

On August 15th, 1947, the great nation of India opened a new chapter in its history – an era of freedom, struggles and progress. This could happen only due to the sacrifices made by countless freedom fighters.

Let us pay our homage to all the sung and unsung heroes who made it possible..!! Take pride in seeing the Tricolour fluttering high in the sky and be proud to be an INDIAN!

Yoga means the addition of energy, strength, and beauty. It gives sync to body, mind and soul. Read this small blog on the advent of International Yoga Day 2018.

International Yoga Day - Spirited Blogger

Here’s again we are celebrating International Yoga Day in India and all across the world. What is that so significant which has made Yoga so important to mark it as an international event which is celebrated by all the cadre of societies? International yoga day has been a global event which is now celebrated in the schools and every other gathering. Each year it marks an additional progress in spreading the practice and study of Yoga and its acceptance into schools, businesses and all walks of life, nationally and internationally. It is important to keep this impetus going as Yoga holds the secrets to the transformation of the human being to a higher level of awareness.

Yoga is India’s greatest civilizational gift that exists with us dating back to 5000 years. One of the oldest and purest forms of practice to blend your soul with your mind, eventually that rejuvenate your heart is from India. Thus, it is is very important for India to continue to nourish its roots and spread out to the world. Yoga is of many forms which prevail in different parts of our country. It has significance in India’s culture and traditions respective of which religion you belong to or from which part of India you are from. It is widespread from a local village to a broad national level. This also includes a yogic influence on music, art, dance, science, philosophy, medicine, politics and economics, including the entire spiritual realm where Yoga always outshines. Skill in action, focus on sensitivity, the unitary path of energy, the fortitude of effort, and brilliance in achievement, along with inner equanimity and tranquil are all aspects of Yoga.

Yoga ascends from nature and instils in our minds to live in harmony with the Earth and the stars. It is not just simply a manmade or historical invention, but it is a medium of integration into the cosmic life. Yoga is characteristically a biological pursuit and endorses environmental awareness, disquiet for the environment, reverence for the Earth and all of its creatures, large and small. Yoga affords us an earthly vision in which we look at the world as a whole, not divided into contradictory countries and communities.

Another aspect of the awareness and popularity of Yoga is the common sight to see people walking around with beautiful sling bags, over their shoulders in a variety of patterns, with their yoga mats. And, the extraordinary popularity of this ancient knowledge is apparent from the number of yoga studios escalating around the world. Tactlessly, with yoga being a billion dollar industry now, it is not infrequent to find new styles of yoga being introduced every other day. Hence, the other side of the coin is that building even more awareness on all the other forms and methods of Yoga has also become really important so that the roots of the ancient yoga and its philosophies remain intact.

Due to all the above points which we discussed in this International Yoga Day blog a step towards the right direction was taken back on December 11, 2014, when United Nation decided to dedicate 21st June as the International Day of Yoga. We are thankful for the initiative of the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. This is helping to spread the awareness but is also providing a platform for the organisations, institutes and practitioners to dedicated their lives to imparting the authentic system of yogic practices and showcase it to the masses.

Such a wonderful statement from a one of the strong lady in the world! I’ll not be talking about Happy International Women’s Day, Nah, well every year I do so, we all do so, sending memes, quotes, messages – which is absolutely fine!

But does it actually reach out to the women across the globe with the same intensity and passion to be different and in love with oneself? Yes, I’m talking about loving yourself, being the best of you, standing out against all odds and shine like a diamond. Let everyone know who you are!

You are a woman of your choice

You are born to love

You are born to give birth

You are a magic maker and a creator of this lovely world!

Every man should respect you for their existence

But does he understand, is the question!

But does the society give her all the right she is worthy of!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….

You are a horse running alone in the wind

And he tries to tame you,

He tries to thrash you, crush you like a dried leaf,

Tries to hold you back, and make you feel like,

You are picked and dragged through an air of violent nightfall

He loves you with the promise of #Being #there

Then why does he ditch you to get #soldout

He kisses you to be yours forever

Then why does he rape you every night

He educates you to be successful then why does he assault you

He wants you to be the CEO of his company,

Then why does he pulls you back by bitching around

He says I’m your BFF, Best friend forever

Then why does he leaves you lonely in pain and tears

And this continues timelessly and shamelessly

The walls around her heart try to keep her contented in soreness

But the end to molestation, rape, assault, betrayal doesn’t conclude

These ruthless societies never give a sigh of relief

These hypocrites are ruining her soul within

Women's Day Spirited Blogger

……………………………………………………………………

Does she have a choice?

Yes, of course, she did have one, in fact, many

Until she recognizes her own spirit and strength

………………………………………………………………….

She is the fire, she shines like a diamond

She is like a rivulet gushing subtly making her own way

She chooses to be strong and beautiful

No matter what comes she kill the evil with her charm

She is impeccable in defying what he does to her

She is bestowed with forgiveness

She is a separatist from the critics

She accepts her mistakes and never gives up

She enlightens her kids’ soul

She is the heart of every family

No matter how she is torn apart

She rises above from worldly unchasteness  

Coz, only God can see her virtuous soul underneath

She is the woman of her own choice

She is the #freespirit

Here’s a beautiful compilation of #freespirit – International Women’s Day 

Share and spread the word so that at least a woman can help a woman to fight the evils. Apparently, the day when a woman will become a woman’s best friend, the society will nurture.
