छठ महापर्व या प्रकृति का सम्मान


wp-1478252870556.pngछठ महापर्व सिर्फ लोक आस्था का पर्व नहीं है यह एक ऐसा पर्व है जो प्रकृति में आस्था को जागृत करता है और मनुष्य का प्रकृति के प्रति आगाध प्रेम को दर्शाता है। मैं तो इससे ज्यादा ऊपर जाकर यह कहूंगा कि यह एक मात्र हिन्दू पर्व है जिसमे किसी भी तरह की प्राकृतिक क्षति को व्यवहार में नहीं लाकर प्रकृति के प्रेम को दर्शाया जाता है जो किसी और हिन्दू पर्व में नहीं है।

छठ महापर्व में डूबते और उगते सूर्य को अर्घ्य देकर अपनी आस्था और और अपने विश्वास के साथ साथ लोग अपनी कृतज्ञता दर्शाते है जो किसी और पर्व में नहीं। सूर्य को अर्घ्य तो हिन्दू लोग रोज़ देते है लेकिन छठ महापर्व की खासियत यह है कि आपको नदी या तालाब में जाकर सूर्य को अर्घ्य देना होता है। अगर आप नजदीक से छठ पूजा में उपयोग होने वाले प्रसाद के रूप में या किसी भी तरह उपयोग होने वाले सामानों का प्रकृति से गहरा नाता होता है जो यह साबित करता है कि इस पर्व को मनाने वाले व्रतियों का प्रकृति के प्रति सम्मान दर्शाता है।

हम जो वाकई में प्रकृति का सम्मान करना भूल गए है यह महापर्व हमें उसके प्रति जागरूक करता है चाहे वह सामाजिक साफ सफाई की बात हो या लोगो का आपस में घाटो पर विचारो का आदान प्रदान जिसकी हमें आज के आधुनिक और डिजिटल युग में बहुत ही जरुरत है उससे रूबरू करवाता है।

आशा करते है हम जितना सम्मान इस पर्व के दौरान लोगो के साथ साथ प्रकृति का करते है उतना ही सम्मान महापर्व के ख़त्म होने के बाद भी करेंगे। यह हमारे लिए सालों भर एक प्रकार होना चाहिए तभी वाकई में सूर्य या प्रकृति के प्रति हमारी सच्ची अर्घ्य होगी।

आप सभी को एक बार फिर से छठ महापर्व की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं और आशा करते है यह महापर्व आपके और आपके पूरे परिवार को मानसिक शांति के साथ साथ आने साल में सुख और समृद्धि प्रदान करे।

असली स्वतंत्रता या नकली स्वतंत्रता


Happy Independence Day
Happy Independence Day

आज 15 अगस्त को हर कोई सोशल मीडिया पर अपनी अपनी देशभक्ति प्रदर्शित करने में लगा हुआ है अपने अपने तरीके से। हर किसी के प्रोफाइल को देखकर ऐसा लगता है जैसे अगर आज अँगरेज़ होते तो सोशल मीडिया के वीर उन्हें कुछ ही मिनटों में निकाल बाहर फेंकते।

क्या वाक़ई में यही स्वतंत्रता है?

हमे वाक़ई में स्वतंत्रता चाहिए तो हमें अपने अंदर कुछ बदलावों को तवज्जो देनी चाहिए ताकि हम बदल सके और अपने समाज के अंदर बदलाव ला सके और मेरे ख्याल से वाक़ई में वही स्वतंत्रता होगी। तो अब सवाल उठता है ऐसे कौन से बदलाव लाये जाये अपने अंदर ताकि हमें सच्ची स्वतंत्रता मिल सके।

Happy Teacher’s Day


Teachers DayIt is for sure that the importance of teachers in our lives can not be expressed in simple words or through the celebrations of teacher’s day.

Teachers are one of the greatest people whom you can across in your life. They are not only the selfless givers but also the mentors of your life. At every step of your life, you come cross teachers who devote their entire life in the enlightenment of students like you. For sure, teachers’ definition can’t be limited to a subject teacher because anyone who guides you in your life is a teacher. Many a times in life, you feel like thanking your teacher but you do not find a proper occasion. So this teachers’ day commemorate your teachers’ efforts and thank him for being the guiding light in your life. You can express your gratitude for your teacher with the help of Teacher’s Day messages.

We will always be thankful to you for all the hard work and efforts you have put in, for educating us. You are not only our teacher. Rather, you are friend, philosopher and guide, all molded into one person. We will always be grateful to you for your support. I may not say it always. But, I mean it whenever I say it. Thank You Teacher for all the things you have done for us.

PM hoisted flag to mark 63rd independence day


To mark the 63rd Independence day for India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh hoisted the Tricolour at the Red Fort, in Delhi on an overcast Saturday morning. He delivered his fifth Independence -Day speech as Prime Minister, through which he offered hope to the sagging economy, severe drought conditions and the H1N1.

Making a pitch for reform of global bodies, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Saturday sought peaceful relations with India’s neighbours but made no reference to Pakistan in his first Independence Day speech after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

“The international economic and political order is changing. Questions are being raised on the functioning and continued effectiveness of the multilateral institutions established in the 20th century,” Manmohan Singh said.

“Our foreign policy should be able to cater to India’s interests in these constantly changing circumstances. I am happy that we have been successful in doing this to a large extent,” he said.

The prime minister referred to the Mumbai attacks in his speech but there was neither any reference to Pakistan nor any oblique message about cross-border terrorism.

Instead, he spoke about India’s desire to live in peace and harmony and create an environment conducive for the development of South Asia. “As far our neighbours are concerned, we want to live with them in peace and harmony,” he said.

“We will make every possible effort to create an environment conducive to the social and economic development of the whole of South Asia.”

He also avoided talking about Pakistan while discussing the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, whose ownership is disputed by Islamabad.

Pointing to India’s good relations with major global players like the US, Russia, China, Japan and Europe, Manmohan Singh spoke about India’s growing relationship with regions like Africa, West Asia and Latin America.

The prime minister emphasised greater international cooperation in addressing global challenges like the economic crisis, terrorism and climate change, saying: “…what happens in one part of the world has an effect on other parts also.”

Referring to climate change, Manmohan Singh underlined the growing importance of this complex issue in India’s foreign policy discourse.

“Climate change has become an issue of global concern in recent years. If we don’t take the necessary steps in time, our glaciers will melt and our rivers will go dry,” he warned.

“India wishes to tackle the problem of climate change in partnership with other countries of the world,” he said while alluding to the government’s decision to constitute eight national missions to address the issue.
