Little Things

This is a rough translation of a beautiful Marathi
conversation between a man and a woman.

He questioned her “which caste do you belong to”?

She asked back”As a woman or as a mother”?

“Ok,Ok, tell me about both”.

With full self confidence she started telling —-

“When a woman becomes mother, she is casteless”.

He was taken aback “How is it possible”?

Her answer was —

“When a mother cleans excreta of her child, she belongs to Shoodra jathi ,

As the child grows, she protects the child from external unwanted influences, she turns into a KshatrIya.

With the growth of the child her caste also changes. She gives good values, good culture and behaviour, and becomes a Brahmin — and last but least

When the child gets good education and starts earning, the mother guides him about the value of money, savings and necessary expenditures —-

South Africa: "the Beloved Country"

Siya Kolisi led the Springboks contingent who picked up the Team of the Year award at the Laureus Sports Awards on Monday night.

Watch: Siya Kolisi delivers moving speech at Laureus ceremony

Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.

Suleymaniye Mosque, Turkey, Source, Author Jorge Lascar (CCC BY-SA 2.0 Generic)

Christians  in America take for granted the freedom they have to practice their religion.  Elsewhere, however, those who leave Islam for Christianity often do so at the risk of their lives [1].

“Growing up in…Bangladesh, Fedu’s life was permeated by Islam.  His father was an imam…Fedu studied in an Islamic school, and…[himself] became a Muslim scholar and imam…[Then a Christian friend] gave Fedu a Bible…to read…Fedu at first dismissed the gift…but eventually he started reading…[and] comparing its teachings with those of the Quran.  The more he studied the two books, the more he began to doubt Islam…After becoming a follower of Christ, Fedu continued teaching at his mosque…When it came to God’s prophets, he taught that Jesus was above all and that He alone is holy.  Members of the mosque became increasingly aware of his Christian views, and…

“Satyamev Jayate”

(Truth Only Triumphs) was popularized by Madan Mohan Malaviya. It was taken from the Mundaka Upanishad.

Malaviya Ji’s name is synonymous with Indian culture. What shall I say I have been a student of B.H.U.I have a wealth of stories related to them.

Today I remembered an incident when I was studying in B.H.U. I once read this thing in a book in c.l (Central Library).I feel that this one incident is a link of Malaviya Ji’s efforts, those affected by him,of the sacrifice made for B.H.U.The famous mathematician of India, Dr. Ganeshi Prashad, was the head of the Department of Mathematics of B.H.U in those days.He was also a member of the world-famous Royal Society. (Isaac Newton, Ramanujan, and such scholars have been members of this society)At the same time, a young Indian v. Narlikar was a rising star in the field of mathematics. Those who were…

# Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

The impossible we do immediately; however miracles take a little longer!

   After a couple of hours I will turn 29 years old, but I consider myself  a toddler who is still stumbling. Currently, I need nothing but Allah’s boon to keep getting up at 4 am to study for GMAT on my own. I always say that I am a free spirit with some bruises and gashes. A wanderer who gets throbbed and thrusted by life many times. A woman who has everything simple except her goals in this world. A woman who deep down believes in her self-aggrandisement after savouring life’s bitterness.

    Order is not woven in the tapestry of life. DNA is fallacy. Puritanism is the other side of illiteracy. Misogyny shows well that you are in a state of stupor. Your chauvinism has turned that place into a dystopian society.

   It is my birthday and my first-year blogging as well. I have been writing for…

Comment: To have any meaning, the Holocaust remembrance also requires a commitment.

‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

In a 1948 speech to the House of Commons, Winston Churchill changed the quote slightly when he said (paraphrased),
‘Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.
