A must watch for buddy lovers-Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani

We all face a time and situation in our life, when we have to decide what should be ideal for our future and what we have to sacrifice according to the moment. This film is about that particular situation and the movie at last gives a beautiful solution, how without sacrificing our go-getting, lively attitude of our adolescence to  the next level and merge them swiftly into our livelihood, which becomes the life thereafter.
Movie though was bit dull and slow for the first 20 minutes, but slowly it pick up the momentum and start unwitting all the knots of those situational factors coming the way.  All actors have done justice to their roles be it Evelyn Sharma, Aditya Roy kapoor, Deepika Padukone, kalki koechlin or the superstar Ranbir kapoor or other casted crews.  Movie though was good but, was bit long and has stretched some scenes for really long.  If you don't like an emotional movie, don't go for it else a must watch.

Vaastu Shastra - A Science or Fiction

According to Vaastushastra ,you can keep your head in East or South direction while sleeping.
East direction is suggested as Hindus worship Lord Soorya (Sun) and there is tradition of not showing your feet to someone reverend and the reason behind South direction is Electromagnetic Field.

Researches show that human body has some amount of current in it.
If you touch edges of Ammeter using your fingertips, the needle is moved , this shows that our body has some amount of current across it.This is because blood flows in our body which has electrons in it and current flows in opposite direction of electrons. So, this induces a small amount of current in the human body.
Every substance which has electric charge associated to it, has some magnetic field associated to it due to electromagnetic field.

What is an electromagnetic field? It is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. This is combination of electric and magnetic field.The electric field is produced by stationa…

कहीं दूर हूँ, कहाँ हूँ, क्यूँ हूँ

कभी दर्या के औंधे में बैठे
लहरों के हित्कोले निहारते
ज़मीं और आसमान के फासले तय करते
ख्वाबों में गुम हो जाऊं  !!
कभी मंजिल के पास जाते
कभी यूँही बुदबुदाते गुनगुनाते
मैं और मेरी परछाई हमेशा साथ रहते !!
महफिलें ... फासलों दूर बैठे हैं
ना मैं उनको नज़र आऊं, ना मैं उन्हें देख पाऊं !!
यह रंगीनियत आई तो है,
पर वजह मैं नहि।
मैं अकेला ही भला हूँ
खुद्में कितना खुश सा हूँ !!
कोई अनकही याद आती है
कोई शाम मुझको बुलाती है
खफा क्यूँ हूँ यह नहीं जानता
मुझे इश्क है खुदसे
बस इसी लम्हे में मुझे रहने दो।
मैं शायद ऐसा ही हूँ
या मुझे बनना ही था ऐसा
ना जानने की आबरू है
ना जुस्तजू किसी की है
कहीं दूर हूँ, कहाँ हूँ, क्यूँ हूँ
कब तक हूँ, अब इसकी परवाह नहीं
बस हूँ। जिंदा हूँ। खुश हूँ।

Challenges of India’s Development Story

"Abundant Foodgrain Stocks, Ample Foreign Exchange Reserves and Poverty: Addressing the Challenges of India’s Development Story" 

“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.”  These lines echo only in poems by great poets, but in reality every single Indian has three basic needs “ROTI, KAPDA AUR MAKAAN”, meaning: food, shelter and clothing. In the story of India’s development,many challenges have occurred.These challenges are divided into four types:Priority Of Sustainence,Priority Of Stability,Priority Of Technology,Division Of Strategy.

Owing to the large population of India which is not organized properly, sustenance becomes first priority as challenge of India’s development.Though India is an agro-based country, enough of food is not available for poor.An average Indian witnesses beggars sleeping on streets almost everyday.Poor people have no place they can call home.A prodigal child wears diffe…

Eesha Khare developed a tiny device that charges cellphone batteries in 20 seconds

An Indian American (NRI) girl +Eesha Khare who is 18 this year has developed a tiny device called super-capacitor, which aides in charging cell phones batteries within 20 to 30 seconds. The so called super-capacitor also hold the charges for long, hence batteries do not die out early.

Free Voice for Homosexuality in India

Even today it is considered a taboo to be gay. Many fancy gays’ as mere confusion, forget about accepting the sexual orientation. These days since the passing of section 377, homosexuality seems to be new talk of the town. Initially, hardly did people know what it actually meant.
So, how did homosexuality come along? What actually is this? These are curiosities emerging in every other mind believe it or not.

Sexual preferences are usually hormonal and emerge right from puberty. Some say a tragic incident happened in past can affect your orientation some others fancy it being a disease and the rest so called ‘straight’ people just loathe gays. And by gay I mean homosexual men, women, not to forget even bisexuals and transgender. Love all; Serve all is not just a saying. It’s a message by God to mankind asking them to love every being. Homosexuality existed way before today and this is evident in Kamasutra book wherein the mention of sexual positions between gays is.

Religion is what serves humanity

For many religions is confined as being Hindu, Muslim, Catholic, Buddhism or Jainism etc. But definition of religion implies it is a belief which aids in achieving some common goals.

You can be religious for anything viz towards cricket, football, your favorite rock band.
Why not, for Iron Maiden fans all over the world fancy themselves as fans, not as Hindu fans or Catholic fans or any other caste fans. They have a common goal, to cheer their band so that they get some great music to hear. This process unites people all over the world, special thanks to the rock shows held globally. Nobody cares about each other’s religion, coz Music becomes a religion to then and that unites people.
Ultimate aim of creating religion was simple, TO SERVE HUMANITY.
Yes religion in some way means as being divided into various castes. But a religion is not a religion if it destructs humanity. Even today, in many parts of the world wars take place in name of religion. Religion is misinterpreted by some …

Cuisines of India

Food, one of the many 4 letter words that brings a lot of ideas,experiences and desires in one's mind. As diverse is the heritage,culture
lifestyle,belief and language of India, as diverse is the cuisine in its various parts.
Like for different occasions one dresses up differently here,the also cuisine differs for various occasions seasons and events.
Like the socialistic ideology of the government here,the cuisine also aims at benefiting all the people depending on it.
Like the democracy in the Country, the choice of the cuisine is also democratic in almost every household.

Cooking in India is not just considered as a work, it is an art.Many recipes could not be written down,procedures cannot be explained and the mystery behind the technique could not be known.
Mothers of the household really use tsp or tbsp to add spices or seasoning, it is done merely with fingers.Such is the expertise that even when they are not cooking, they would know what and how much should be added for t…

Spirituality in terms of humanity

Before taking you to the world of spirituality, I would like to give a glimpse of one of my favorite quote on Spirituality by ―Steve Maraboli. “One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say "i love you", "i'm sorry", "i appreciate you", "i'm proud of you"...whatever you're feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it...cause a smile today for someone else...and give plenty of hugs.”

Exactly, it’s about connecting the dots to serve you and thus serving humanity. It appears as a white snow to my mind, on speaking SPIRITUALITY Common man fancies a divine power or something religious, rather cosmic on bringing the spiritual topic. Youngsters these days get repelled by spirituality. Who has time to seek inner self, gain nirvana, attain soulful bliss? Rohit has to wait at coffee shop for his girl, Riya is busy with her danc…
