Are we really progressing ?

India unfortunately is lacking leaders. There was a time when we had real heroes those who fought selflessly for our freedom and sacrificed their lives.

Now a days 'leaders' are replaced by diplomats and politicians , who are hardly concerned with the development or progress of our country They are not at all bothered by the grievances of common man. 40 percent population is living below poverty line but the rich are getting richer. The difference is growing between rich and the poor with a great speed.

They have tall claims that India has developed a lot but the truth is that we have lost our grip on many significant fronts With this type of ineffective leadership India will lead nowhere.


We Indians copy the Western culture on silly counts like fashion , openness and homosexuality but unfortunately we do not follow the British way of tackling the awful mess . The journalism their is admirable. They do not hesitate or fear in criticizing, exposing or taking names of their politicians. Their efforts are determined and meticulous in contrast to our media where they are reluctant to question or expose their colleagues , as it happened in Radia's case.


Worst part is when our media dares to question the PM , he is either unavailable or protected by his advisers, unlike Cameron who made himself available to face all the criticism in west .


Majority of countries are victim of terrorism but the selfish politicians of India have developed the habit of consoling themselves and fooling the general lot by saying - "Spirit of Mumbai" . Rest of the world have learnt their lessons from terror attack and have improved their law and order except India where our leaders have mastered the art of making tall claims and sympathizing with the victims for a brief period. Mumbaikars are living in fear of bomb attacks for past two decades but our government seems reluctant to take any effective measure.


There is no improvement in the facilities at a grass root level even . The current political dissonance and institutional attitude do not inspire confidence.


Indian media needs to stop sensationalizing everything and should cover issues with sincerity and due diligence . It should be a strong corruption free crusader against injustice.


India is not keeping pace with its development needs We need to delink politics from reform processes and improve our regulatory framework to reach our global leadership goals. We must not tie ourselves with allies which adversely affects our autonomy. We need to be more strategic in developing relationship with neighboring countries.


Government needs to confer 'infrastructure' status on all fronts Brain drain should be checked and measures should be taken for reverse brain drain . We need to look into the reasons for people reluctant to serve their own country . The lack of innovation and quality research and development is putting our country at lower graph. Growth in jobs are needed . There should be major expansion in all spheres , be it health , education , science or security . Our products are not making any remarkable impact in global market . For our country to progress we need to have thoughtful leaders who do not ignore the demands of one billion population and resonate well with the common lot.

Ever tried to recharge yourself ?

The way we need a Sunday after six working days and a break of eight hours of sleep after 16 hours of hectic day to relax, similarly we need to rejuvenate and gather our strength back at small intervals.

By keeping silence we can achieve that . It means unplugging, disconnecting from the many sources that absorb our energy: problems, worry, pleasing, fear and overload। To be released quickly from all these debilitating socket points, we need to become introspective and quiet. This revitalizes our thoughts.Every thought we create is energy and it produces its own current, whether negative or positive. In quietness we step inside and we stabilize ourselves in the thought of original peace. Then slowly, we begin to feel great. This original current of peace releases us from burden and fear.


All things have their time. All things have their answers. All things have their right to be. Accepting this reality, all things come into harmony

Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder.

Things are either allowed or disallowed. We must not allow others to poison our minds. We have our own intellect and experiences to know and understand others. Why to rely on others?

It is said that beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. When we find someone kind and modest, then it is our own virtue that sees the other person as good. It depends on ourselves what we want to see. When we are focused on others virtues then we start sending positive vibes to him, which connects us . While looking for vices makes us too negative and the negative vibes hinders in establishing a healthy relationship between the two.

An ant is tiny beside an elephant but as soon as an ant enters the ear of an elephant it goes crazy . The elephant’s ears are so big, the elephant itself is so big and yet a tiny ant makes it go wild. In the same way, if I allow the slightest defamation of anyone go through my ears, I lose all my spirituality. I lose all my value because I start interacting with others on the basis of what I have heard about them. Pay attention to this! We have to be very, very selective in what we allow to enter our ears. Let me learn to see only virtues and specialties. Let me not concentrate on anyone’s weaknesses.

Thanks.

Shall we stop being kind ?

Quite often we feel depressed or resentment overpowers us when we do not get the desired result and when our kindness is not being answered the way we anticipate.

But the question is shall we give up or stop being kind to others ?

People are often unreasonable, self-centered: Forgive them anyway.
If you are Honest, People may cheat you, but be Honest anyway.
What you spend years to build, someone could destroy overnight, Build anyway.
The good you do today, People will often forget tomorrow, Do Good anyway .

See, in the final analysis it is between you and God; it never was between you and them anyway.

Thanks

Peace in life !

We spend most of our life running after things, doing things. We forget that being comes before doing. Those who remember this secret make an effort to "be" and discover that when they stop and observe, life helps and brings whatever is needed. Learning to be is learning to be at peace. It is our most fundamental nature.

Change is constant !

It is wise to bend rather than to break. Those who change will get spiritual wisdom. Conversely, those who have wisdom will decide to change. Change is the first law of Nature

In Hindi it is said--"फल आने पर डालियाँ विनम्रता से झुक जाती हैं "

What stops us to bend ? It is our EGO ! It is false ego which doesn't allow us to bend or accept the situations coming our way.

Those who learn from surroundings, past experiences and their own mistakes, they tend to rectify and correct themselves by bringing a positive change in there persona.

This constructive change enhances their beauty and make them more acceptable and desirable by all. No one can remain the same after some time. we change every moment and we are at times a completely different person with a positive change in us.

So we can say that change is the only thing which is constant। We are dead as rock if we do not change. Let's welcome the beautiful changes in ourselves and surrounding as well.

Modesty

Humility dismisses nothing, rather, it takes even small things into consideration। It recognises that whatever life presents, needs to be respected. Small things are easily found in something big, but inside little things there is often greatness.

A man is deprived of all the beauty if he/she is not blessed with modesty. Modesty is a virtue, as essential as oxygen in our lives. Without this virtue, one can never rise very high in his life.

Modesty helps in solving many problems, building healthy relationships and often it soothes a man in peril. Humility pays and it works wonders.

Inner beauty

Our thoughts reflect our inner beauty. Our culture , education . thinking , upbringing everything gets reflected in our views. If we become more adaptive and tolerant towards the ignorance of people , we can peacefully find ways for the upliftment of society. This way we constantly work on our thinking and attitude as well which in turn enhances our inner beauty.

While we spend much time 'making up' our faces to ensure our appearance is beautiful for others, we forget to make up our minds. This is not about making decisions. Making up our mind means ensuring that our thoughts are positive and our feelings towards others are filled with good wishes. When we do, others begin to sense a deeper beauty emanating from beneath the skin! This is inner beauty, which should not be hidden behind your face. Let the real you show through.

The reality , originality and purity glows and shines like anything.

Who is Anna Hazare ?

1. Who is Anna Hazare?

An ex-army man. Fought 1965 Indo-Pak War

2. What's so special about him?

He built a village Ralegaon Siddhi in Ahamad Nagar district, Maharashtra

3. So what?

This village is a self-sustained model village. Energy is produced in the village itself from solar power, biofuel and wind mills.

In 1975, it used to be a poverty clad village. Now it is one of the richest village in India . It has become a model for self-sustained, eco-friendly & harmonic village.

4. Ok,...?

This guy, Anna Hazare was awarded Padma Bhushan and is a known figure for his social activities.

5. Really, what is he fighting for?

He is supporting a cause, the amendment of a law to curb corruption in India .

6. How that can be possible?

He is advocating for a Bil, The Jan Lokpal Bill (The Citizen Ombudsman Bill), that will form an autonomous authority who will make politicians (ministers), beurocrats (IAS/IPS) accountable for their deeds.

8. It's an entirely new thing right..?

In 1972, the bill was proposed by then Law minister Mr. Shanti Bhushan. Since then it has been neglected by the politicians and some are trying to change the bill to suit thier theft (corruption).

7. Oh.. He is going on a hunger strike for that whole thing of passing a Bill ! How can that be possible in such a short span of time?

The first thing he is asking for is: the government should come forward and announce that the bill is going to be passed.

Next, they make a joint committee to DRAFT the JAN LOKPAL BILL. 50% goverment participation and 50% public participation. Because you cant trust the government entirely for making such a bill which does not suit them.

8. Fine, What will happen when this bill is passed?

A LokPal will be appointed at the centre. He will have an autonomous charge, say like the Election Commission of India. In each and every state, Lokayukta will be appointed. The job is to bring all alleged party to trial in case of corruptions within 1 year. Within 2 years, the guilty will be punished. Not like, Bofors scam or Bhopal Gas Tragedy case, that has been going for last 25 years without any result.

9. Is he alone? Whoelse is there in the fight with Anna Hazare?

Baba Ramdev, Ex. IPS Kiran Bedi, Social Activist Swami Agnivesh, RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal and many more.

Prominent personalities like Aamir Khan is supporting his cause.

10. Ok, got it. What can I do?

At least we can spread the message. How?

Putting status message, links, video, changing profile pics.

At least we can support Anna Hazare and the cause for uprooting corruption from India .

At least we can hope that his Hunger Strike does not go in vain.

At least we can pray for his good health.

Thanks for reading.

Contentment

Contentment is a great virtue, though it may not attract one's attention at first.Those who are truly content are usually quiet about it. It is a pleasure to be in their company, because they are full, peaceful, and generous.

Most people consider amassing wealth to be their prime duty। But just see what physical, mental and spiritual strain is involved ! Even if all this can be endured, how many people actually succeed in getting rich? Very few are able to get as much as they want. After going through so much trouble to get it, one cannot keep it for very long. When we die, everything turns to dust. A king today may be penniless tomorrow.


The same goes for titles and honour. To acquire them involves all kinds of physical, mental and spiritual problems, often with damage to health and wealth. Even if you succeed, your life is spent worrying about how to maintain your prestige. In addition to this, social and political upheaval can break you. So after thinking over these things, we have to conclude that getting rich or going after name and fame can never be the aim of our life.

What can it be, then? Is there something which is unaffected by actions? Such a thing has to be related to soul. As far as accumulating wealth, titles and honour are concerned, we may succeed or fail, but the method we employ to get them definitely uplifts or degrades our soul. Obviously, the principal aim of life is spiritual upliftment, which can give true peace and happiness..

Hurt

Dunno why it happens but when we are selfless , pious , caring and and too considerate , then also we are misunderstood by some people. We give all our affection and care to the loved ones , but they do not hesitate an iota in hurting you hard.

Sigh !

Anger


Anger is an acid that does more harm to the vessel in which
it is stored rather than to the person on whom it is poured.

Dearest ZEAL

Dil ke sehraa mein koi aas kaa jugnu bhi nahi

Itnaa royaa hoon ki ab aankh mein aanshu bhi nahi

[Sehraa = Desert / Barrenness, Jugnu = Light’s Flicker]

When the troubles and worries converge and descend on the heart and mind en masse, Sangini, it is very distressing. These past few weeks have been harrowing, to put it mildly.

Hospitalizations for Shlok, your prolonged absence, other worries – all components of tremendous disconcert. All through the day, there is a palpable heaviness in the heart, turmoil in the mind, as I go through the motions of daily routines. Not feeling good, Sangini.

There is not much peace, forget joy. The only time in recent days I really felt happy was when I found the song on Lucknow. But that too proved short-lived as you might not have yet heard or read of it. Though the heart does say and the mind concurs – it is unlikely that you are not reading Our Samvaad of the day.

May be even if you have read and heard it, I think you did not like it much, Sangini. Happens. We have had our moments of wonderfully thrilling sharing. So, at times, dearest ZEAL, I can falter. The law of averages holds true for one and all. Endeavor is my karm and from that I shall not be deterred.

Yesterday I shared the song where the lady invokes the beloved in the loneliness and today, dearest ZEAL, is a song where I invite you to come over and be with me. Versatility of Yesudas beautifies this lovely song from the movie Chitchor. Here it goes:

Song # 321

Jab deep jale aanaa

Jab shaam dhale aanaa

Sandesh milan kaa bhool naa jaanaa

Meraa pyaar naa bisraanaa

Jab deep jale aanaa …….

Come whenever you wish, my dearest ZEAL! The day, time, place is all yours to choose. Forever, I am eager to see you, meet you, be with you – wherever that happen to be. Hope is just that my warmest and fondest message of invitation is felt by you duly, Sangini.

Nit saanjh-sawere milte hain

Unhe dekhke taare khilte hain

Lete hain waadaa ek duje se

Kehte hain chale aanaa

Jab deep jale aanaa …….

The promises and compacts of the heart and soul need no written document to go by। They are kept and honored by the volition of wishful commitment and happens when the time for them is due. At times, it happens soon, at others, it will take its own sweet time. Our Togetherness has been witness to both of these. And it has always been the two of us who have collectively overcome each hurdle that has come in our walk of life.


Main palkan dagar buhaarungaa

Teri raah nihaarungaa

Meri preet kaa kaajal tum apne

Naino mein male aanaa

Jab deep jale aanaa …….

With religious zeal and unflinching faith, I will watch the path where on you will walk to our meeting. I will wait for you till my last breath and then again in every lifetime that there is. For me, the wait for you is most gratifying. Never in my life have I felt so nice.

Jahaan pehli baar mile thay hum

Jis jagaah se sang chale thay hum

Nadiyaa ke kinaare aaj ussi

Ambuaa ke tale aanaa

Jab deep jale aanaa …….

The first line transported me to the dark lane with you in a silhouette at its end, Sangini. That is surely going to be one of the most lingering moments of my life. Thank you for everything, dearest ZEAL.

This is it for today. Feel like seating at your feet and holding them lovingly, Sangini.

Semper Fidelis,

Committed for life

The Greatest Friend –

Forever – ZEAL’s Vikas.

Kindness

We must take advantage of every moment and every opportunity to give happiness to others through kindness in our thoughts and we should be willing to overlook weaknesses and mistakes and have the desire to help everyone reach their potential.

For this purpose we need to be selfless to the core. At times we have to serve others at our own cost. Why do we hesitate to exhibit our goodness , charitable behaviour and concern for others. we ought to be very giving in nature without expecting any reward or the benefits that recongnition of the giving may bring.

We must feel a moral obligation to help, serve or benefit others , if necessary at the sacrifice of self interest, as we are born with a load of obligation to our successors, predecessors and contemporaries .

Nathuram Godse' final address to the court

Gandhiji Assassin: Nathuram Godses' Final Address to the Court.


Nathuram Godse was arrested immediately after he assassinated
Gandhiji, based on an F. I. R. filed by Nandlal Mehta at the
Tughlak Road Police station at Delhi. The trial, which was held in
camera, began on 27th May 1948 and concluded on 10th February 1949. He
was sentenced to death.


An appeal to the Punjab High Court, then in session at Simla, did not
find favourable and the sentence was upheld. The statement that you
are about to read is the last made by Godse before the Court on the
5th of May 1949.


Such was the power and eloquence of this statement that one of the
judges, G. D. Khosla, later wrote, "I have, however, no doubt that had
the audience of that day been constituted into a jury and entrusted
with the task of deciding Godse's appeal, they would have brought a
verdict of 'not Guilty' by an overwhelming majority."


WHY I KILLED GANDHI


Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively came to revere
Hindu religion, Hindu history, and Hindu culture. I had, therefore,
been intensely proud of Hinduism as a whole. As I grew up I developed
a tendency to free thinking unfettered by any superstitious allegiance
to any isms, political or religious. That is why I worked actively for
the eradication of untouchables and the caste system based on birth
alone. I openly joined RSS wing of anti-caste movements and maintained
that all Hindus were of equal status as to rights, social, and
religious and should be considered high or low on merit alone and not
through the accident of birth in a particular caste or profession.


I used publicly to take part in organized anti-caste dinners in which
thousands of Hindus, Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, Chamars and
Bhangis participated. We broke the caste rules and dined in the
company of each other. I have read the speeches and writings of
Ravana, Chanakiya, Dadabhai Naoroji, Vivekanand, Gokhale, Tilak, along
with the books of ancient and modern history of India and some
prominent countries like England, France, America and Russia.
Moreover I studied the tenets of Socialism and Marxism. But above all
I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar and Gandhiji had written
and spoken, as to my mind these two ideologies have contributed more
to the molding of the thought and action of the Indian people during
the last thirty years or so, than any other single factor has done.


All this reading and thinking led me to believe it was my first duty
to serve Hinduism and Hindus both as a patriot and as a world citizen.
To secure the freedom and to safeguard the just interests of some
thirty crores (300 million) of Hindus would automatically constitute
the freedom and the well-being of all India, one fifth of human race.
This conviction led me naturally to devote myself to the Hindu
Sanghtanist ideology and program, which alone, I came to believe,
could win and preserve the national independence of Hindustan , my
Motherland, and enable her to render true service to humanity as well.


Since the year 1920, that is, after the demise of Lokamanya Tilak,
Gandhijis' influence in the Congress first increased and then became
supreme. His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their
intensity and were reinforced by the slogan of truth and non-violence
which he paraded ostentatiously before the country. No sensible or
enlightened person could object to those slogans. In fact there is
nothing new or original in them. They are implicit in every
constitutional public movement. But it is nothing but a mere dream if
you imagine that the bulk of mankind is, or can ever become, capable
of scrupulous adherence to these lofty principles in its normal life
from day to day.


In fact, honour, duty, and love of ones' own kith and kin and country
might often compel us to disregard non-violence and to use force. I
could never conceive that an armed resistance to an aggression is
unjust. I would consider it a religious and moral duty to resist and,
if possible, to overpower such an enemy by use of force. In the
Ramayana, Rama killed Ravana in a tumultuous fight and relieved Sita.
In the Mahabharata, Krishna killed Kansa to end his wickedness; and
Arjuna had to fight and slay quite a number of his friends and
relations including the revered Bhishma because the latter was on the
side of the aggressor. It is my firm belief that in dubbing Rama,
Krishna, and Arjuna as guilty of violence, the Mahatma betrayed a
total ignorance of the springs of human action.


In more recent history, it was the heroic fight put up by Chhatrapati
Shivaji that first checked and eventually destroyed the Muslim tyranny
in India. It was absolutely essentially for Shivaji to overpower and
kill an aggressive Afzal Khan, failing which he would have lost his
own life. In condemning historys' towering warriors like Shivaji, Rana
Pratap and Guru Gobind Singh as misguided patriots, Gandhiji has
merely exposed his self-conceit. He was, paradoxical as it may appear
a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the
name of truth and non-violence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji, and the
Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen for ever
for the freedom they brought to them.


The accumulating provocation of thirty-two years, culminating in his
last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the
existence of Gandhi should be brought to an end immediately. Gandhi
had done very well in South Africa to uphold the rights and well-being
of the Indian community there. But when he finally returned to India
he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was to be the
final judge of what was right or wrong. If the country wanted his
leadership, it had to accept his infallibility; if it did not, he would stand aloof
from the Congress and carry on his own way.


Against such an attitude there can be no halfway house. Either
Congress had to surrender its will to his and had to be content with
playing second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality, metaphysics
and primitive vision, or it had to carry on without him.


He alone was the Judge of everyone and every thing; he was the master
brain guiding the civil disobedience movement; no other could know the
technique of that movement. He alone knew when to begin and when to
withdraw it. The movement might succeed or fail, it might bring untold
disaster, and political reverses but that could make no difference to
the Mahatma's infallibility.

'A Satyagrahi can never fail' was hisformula for declaring his own
infallibility and nobody except himself knew what a Satyagrahi is.
Thus, the Mahatma became the judge and jury in his own cause.
These childish insanities and obstinacies, coupled with a most severe
austerity of life, ceaseless work and lofty character made Gandhi
formidable and irresistible.


Many people thought that his politics were irrational but they had
either to withdraw from the Congress or place their intelligence at
his feet to do with as he liked. In a position of such absolute
irresponsibility Gandhi was guilty of blunder after blunder, failure
after failure, disaster after disaster.

Gandhi's pro-Muslim policy is blatantly in his perverse attitude on the
question of the national language of India. It is quite obvious that
Hindi has the most prior claim to be accepted as the premier language.

In the beginning of his career in India, Gandhi gave a great impetus to
Hindi but as he found that the Muslims did not like it, he became a
champion of what is called Hindustani.

Everybody in India knows that there is no language
called Hindustani; it has no grammar; it has no vocabulary. It is a
mere dialect, it is spoken, but not written. It is a bastard tongue
and cross-breed between Hindi and Urdu, and not even the Mahatmas'
sophistry could make it popular.

But, in his desire to please the Muslims, he insisted that Hindustani alone
should be the national language of India. His blind followers, of course,
supported him and the so-called hybrid language began to be used. The
charm and purity of the Hindi language was to be prostituted to please the
Muslims. All his experiments were at the expense of the Hindus.


From August 1946 onwards, the private armies of the Muslim League
began a massacre of the Hindus. The then Viceroy, Lord Wavell, though
distressed at what was happening, would not use his powers under the Government
of India Act of 1935 to prevent the rape, murder and arson.

The Hindu blood began to flow from Bengal to Karachi with some retaliation
by the Hindus. The Interim Government formed in September was sabotaged
by its Muslim League members' right from its inception, but the more they
became disloyal and treasonable to the government of which they were a part,
the greater was Gandhis infatuation for them.

Lord Wavell had to resign as he could not bring about a settlement and he was
succeeded by Lord Mountbatten. King Log was followed by King Stork.
The Congress which had boasted of its nationalism and socialism secretly accepted
Pakistanliterally at the point of the bayonet and abjectly surrendered to Jinnah.
Indiawas vivisected and one-third of the Indian territory became foreign land
to us from August 15, 1947.


Lord Mount batten came to be described in Congress circles as the
greatest Viceroy and Governor-General this country ever had. The
official date for handing over power was fixed for June 30, 1948, but
Mountbatten, with his ruthless surgery, gave us a gift of vivisected
India ten months in advance.

This is what Gandhi had achieved after thirty years of undisputed
dictatorship and this is what Congress party calls 'freedom' and 'peaceful
transfer of power'. The Hindu-Muslim unity bubble was finally burst and
a the ocratic state was established with the consent of Nehru and his
crowd and they have called 'freedom won by them with sacrifice' - whose sacrifice?

When top leaders of Congress, with the consent of Gandhi, divided and tore
the country - which we consider a deity of worship - my mind was filled with
direful anger.


One of the conditions imposed by Gandhi for his breaking of the fast
unto death related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by the Hindu
refugees. But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent
attacks he did not so much as utter a single word to protest and
censure the Pakistan Government or the Muslims concerned.

Gandhi was shrewd enough to know that while undertaking a fast unto
death, had he imposed for its break some condition on the Muslims in
Pakistan, there would have been found hardly any Muslims who could
have shown some grief if the fast had ended in his death.

It was for this reason that he purposely avoided imposing any condition
on the Muslims. He was fully aware of from the experience that Jinnah
was not at all perturbed or influenced by his fast, and the Muslim League
hardly attached any value to the inner voice of Gandhi.

Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of the Nation. But if that is so,
he had failed his paternal duty in as much as he has acted very
treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it.
I stoutly maintain that Gandhi has failed in his duty.


He has proved to be the Father of Pakistan. His inner-voice, his
spiritual power and his doctrine of non-violence of which so much is
made of, all crumbled before Jinnah's iron will, and proved to be
powerless.

Briefly speaking, I thought to myself and foresaw I shall be totally ruined,
and the only thing I could expect from the people would be nothing but
hatred and that I shall have lost my entire honor, even more valuable
than my life, if I were to kill Gandhiji. Bu,t at the same time, I felt that the
Indian politics, in the absence of Gandhiji, would surely be proved practical,
able to retaliate, and would be powerful with armed forces.

No doubt, my own future would be totally ruined, but the nation would
be saved from the inroads of Pakistan. People may even call me and
dub me as devoid of any sense or foolish, but the nation would be free
to follow the course founded on the reason which I consider to be
necessary for sound nation-building.


After having fully considered the question, I took the final decision
in the matter, but I did not speak about it to anyone whatsoever. I
took courage in both my hands and I did fire the shots at Gandhiji on
30th January 1948, on the prayer-grounds of Birla House.

I do say that my shots were fired at the person whose policy and action
had brought rack and ruin and destruction to millions of Hindus. There
was no legal machinery by which such an offender could be brought to
book and for this reason I fired those fatal shots. I bear no ill will towards
anyone individually but I do say that I had no respect for the present
government owing to their policy which was unfairly favorable towards
the Muslims. But at the same time I could clearly see that the policy
was entirely due to the presence of Gandhi.


I have to say with great regret that Primes Minister Nehru quite
forgets that his preachings and deeds are at times at variances with
each other when he talks about India as a secular state in season and
out of season, because it is significant to note that Nehru has played
a leading role in the establishment of the theocratic state of
Pakistan, and his job was made easier by Gandhis' persistent policy of
appeasement towards the Muslims.

I now stand before the court to accept the full share of my responsibility
for what I have done and the judge would, of course, pass against me
such orders of sentence as may be considered proper. But I would like
to add that I do not desire any mercy to be shown to me, nor do I wish
that anyone else should beg for mercy on my behalf.

My confidence about the moral side of my action has not been shaken
even by the criticism leveled against it on all sides. I have no doubt
that honest writers of history will weighs my act and find the true
value thereof some day in future.

JAI HIND !!

Spiritual Love

If we move from selfishness to self-givingness in our relationship with another, We not only experience a degree of Oneness with that person, but we also experience a degree of spiritual Love.

Spiritual Love is certainly more than the physical attraction or attachment we have for another person. It is also more than the vital feelings and emotions we have towards others. It is instead something truer, deeper, and longer lasting. Spiritual Love occurs when the lover, partner, parent, friend, associate, etc. seeks to give of himself without expectation or reward, seeking only the fulfilment of the other person. Ultimately, the highest expression of spiritual Love occurs when we surrender to, and offer our deepest devotion to the Divine, thereby fulfilling Its intention in life.

In addition to spiritual Oneness and Love, we also experience the spirit as pure joy and Delight of being. One way we can feel that Delight is by being self-giving to another person, as well as feeling the joy of another person's progress and happiness. We can also feel such Delight whenever we experience something new in the world, such as when we discover a new possibility, or come upon a new idea, or when we have achieved a new level of growth in our lives.

Quite often I have witnessed my soul dancing with utter joy and delight . It is because of the love i have experienced for others and the unknown .

RajaYoga Meditation

RajaYoga is an ancient system of meditation and spiritual understanding. It enables us to return to a state of inner peace, personal power and self-worth through re-kindling the soul's original qualities and virtues. It provides many answers to age-old questions relating to our identity and purpose and opens up a pathway to true peace of mind and a natural state of happiness. At its deepest level, RajaYoga Meditation is taught as a method of self-awareness, leading ultimately to self-realisation.

Power of thoughts !

Thoughts have great power, they are like seeds you plant in your mind.

The more you hold onto a particular thought, the more power you invest in it. Positive thoughts give us energy and strength. Negative thoughts rob us of power and make us feel tired and strained.

We are by nature positive. Negativity is the result of faulty thinking. You can change if you want to. You can't control other people, situation or circumstances, but you can control what is going on inside you. It takes time to change and transform those old patterns of thinking.

Be patient with yourself.

Spiritual Progress


There is benefit for you in every situation. If, that is, you know how to look for it. The idea behind steady spiritual progress is to see every circumstance and situation (particularly those that challenge you) as a tailor-made lesson in your personal plan for self-development. For example, in a situation where hurtful or angry words were exchanged, why not see it as the chance either to perceive things about your own character which need changing or to rehearse some virtue or quality that you need to put into practice more often? Actually, we should be grateful for the opportunity to evaluate ourselves. In this way you can transform anything into a constructive lesson. Never think that you've learned enough and now can stop. You should love it when people try to correct you or give you advice. It keeps you alert and gives you plenty of opportunity to put your truth into practice. It's a sign of great danger to be unable to accept criticism and instead use your understanding to criticize others. Realize deeply the significance of every moment, and your spiritual progress will be assured.

Spotting Qualities



A compassionate person develops an eye for spotting the qualities that make each person special. Even when others are at their lowest ebb, it is possible to help them restore their self-belief by keeping a firm, clear vision of their goodness and specialties. Taking a gently encouraging approach, one must never give up on anyone.

Determination and Patience !

Determination is the strength that will enable you to pass the barrier of useless thoughts to create positive thoughts and to be successful in whatever you wish . It comes from within and its partner is patience . Patience teaches you not to push but rather to wait and appreciate the game of life instead, knowing that nothing remains the same and everything will change at some point of life.

Letting Go of Hurt & Mistrust

When someone has done what we neither expected nor wanted them to do , our attachment to our expectation causes us to be hurt. The hurt imagined or not , causes mistrust to arise within us. To free ourselves from habitual mistrust of others , we have to become aware that it's our response that contains the hurt , and not the other person's behavior that causes the hurt. Realize- it is not what you say , it is what I do with what you say or do that makes me feel this way .

Start Early !


The best time to awaken both body and spirit is in the early morning. We are fresh, in solitude, and the vibrations of the world are at their calmest. It is not surprising that you will find all experienced meditators and yogis up with the dawn, inviting the sun of spirit to shine into the heart of their soul. The first half hour of conscious awareness will be the foundation of your day. Make an early start. Meditate, set the switch of your consciousness and calibrate your energy for the day. You'll be surprised the difference it makes.
