Floating Stone and tunnel at Khud Baba Temple






Himachal is an amazing state with a lot of amazing things to watch. There are many things present in different parts of the Himachal to discover. Not only Himachal has so many beautiful locations but it also holds many spiritually awakening experiences to the masses. There are many temples and spiritual places in Himachal which have the ability of making people feel that there exist in some great power of a universe. Therefore I have chosen to bring these beautiful and strange things from Himachal to the masses. First of this series is floating stone present at the Khuda Baba temple, Bhadhol (20 KM from Teh. Baijnath in Kangra district of Himachal Prades). This stone which weighs around approximately 5 kg is floating in water from past many years. This stone is believed to be brought here by a devotee from Rameshwaram and is also believed to one of the many stones which were used to construct the stone bridge between India and Sri Lanka by the vanarsena of Sri Ram to bring back Sita mata from there. Video present below is not a justification or confirmation of anything. People are free to watch and believe or not believe this video; however anyone can watch it by visiting the temple accessible by the road.




This temple also provides a great location to visit and is mostly away from the reach of the masses. This temple provides some of natures best locations to watch. Present in calm location in foots of hills this temple and Khud Bawa Guffa or tunnel provides a great adventure and experience. Local people have many supernatural stories to tell about this temple and have great trust on the deities in the temple. Many local people visit this temple to offer their prayers to the deities and khud baba to bring happiness in their life. Overall this temple provides a good location for all people.

Kangra Fort- A place to visit














Kangra Fort has great relevance in the history of the Kangra district and Katoch kingdom. This fort is situated just few kilometers from the present Kangra city. This fort has always remained pride for the people of Kangra. Situated over large area, this fort offers a great location to visit. This fort is situated at the top of a hill and besides a small river. Presently this fort is under renovation and taken over by the Government of India. People are required to pay Indian five rupees per person for visiting this fort. This fort contains many gardens, historical gates, temple and old monuments. This fort is worth visiting and is situated on main Kangra-Pathankot national highway. A small link road is available to visit this fort. Adjacent to this fort also situated a historical Jain temple and it is also visited by many Jain devotees every year. Temple of Goddess Ambika holds a great significance to the people katoch caste as it is temple of their Kul Devi. However due to years of neglect this fort has lost lot of it’s beautify and most of its unique things like temple are in abandoned state. This is a sorrowful state for the fort which has great long history behind it. Many fights are fought for the control of this fort because it was believed at time that who controls this fort will also control the total Himachal. Most of the time this fort has remained in the dominance of katoch kings however in the end of the era this fort saw many different rulers like Gorka’s and Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Above enjoy the beautiful pictures of the Kangra Fort.

Osho and his unique thoughts


Osho is known around the world for his revolutionary thinking and thoughts. His thoughts have helped many people around the world in awaking their souls and becoming good human beings. In his life time, he presented his thoughts on many matters and issues; therefore, it is not possible for me to summarize all his thoughts here. However, we can discus few of them. First great thought of the Osho is about revolution and therefore, he wanted every human being to be a revolutionary. According to him only a revolutionary can create a world which is free of wrong practices. His thoughts always motivate people to break old barriers and live their lives in a revolutionary way. By revolution, he means the revolution of mind and soul together. According to him, we require a new revolution in this world for turning it in to a place which becomes a celebration for all and not a world which is full of grieves and unhappiness.

Second great thought of the Osho is about the way of meditation. As he himself being a great revolutionary, therefore he totally revolutionized the whole concept of the meditation. Many of mediation techniques stated by him are trademarks of the Osho and are highly effective and simultaneously simple as compared to other mediation techniques. According to Osho, we can perform mediation anytime and anywhere; and for this we do not require any special training. He was so great in doing so that he converted simple breathing in to a great meditation experience. People can easily find many of his meditation techniques by visiting osho.com. Many people around the world have got lot of help from Osho’s teachings of meditation because of their great effectiveness and simplicity.

In coming articles I will discuss more about the beloved Osho.

A Foggy Evening with a beautiful Woman

It is the story of last winter. Most of the north India comes under dense fog in this time of year. I was on travel that time because of touring job. I was in the city of Varanasi of India. It is a beautiful city at the bank of holy river Ganga. Fog was so dense that nothing was clearly visible after 10 meter distance. I took the hotel near Ganga River from where one can see the beautiful flow of Ganga. My hotel was half empty because of the off-season.

I was staying in the room number 306. For the whole day I worked in the city and came back to the hotel in evening. However that evening had something special stored for me. I decided to watch TV inside my room as nothing was visible outside because of fog. It was 5:30 PM; suddenly some body knocks at my room’s door. I thought it must be the waiter of hotel who must had come for enquiring about the night’s dinner.

As I opened my room’s door to my surprise, I saw a beautiful lady standing in front of me.She was a beautiful woman in her late twenties. She was dressed up like traditional Indian married woman. Before I could ask her some thing, she told me that she wants to talk to me. I asked her to come inside the room. She sat in front of me on the chair. She told me that she was from Calcutta and just come to visit this place.

Her words found me some suspicious, as in India it is not safe for woman to travel alone and it is not practiced also. There are lot of cases happened daily in India, where people are made fool by the unsocial elements.I decided to listen to her more. She was really a beautiful woman and her voice had some unknown attraction. She told me that she was in desperate need of some one because she can not do it alone.

I asked her to be more specific. She told that she was running from her home, as her parents wanted to marry her with some one else, whom she didn’t love. She loved a man from this place and he had told her to come to this. However she was waiting him from the morning still nobody has turned up.I told her what I could do for her. She told me that you looked to me a good person; therefore I require your help to go to his house.

I did not know way, I got convinced with her words and decided to go with her. Inside-inside I had started liking her. We come out of the hotel and started journey towards the place. Fog was very dense and early night was also making it difficult to see. However she was walking very fast. I was only trying to follow her. After the ten minutes of walk some body hold my hand from the behind. I looked back it was an old man.

He told me where you are going, are you mad. I told him why? He told me you are running towards the deepest and fast flowing part of Ganga. Anybody who drowns their never come back. I told him what about the woman. “Who were you talking about? There was no one except you”, he told. Suddenly a fear runs through my whole body. Now I am able to hear the flow of Ganga. I thanked the old man and came back to my hotel. From the reception I enquired about the woman staying in the hotel.

He told me that there was no woman staying in the hotel. I told him the whole story. Then he told me that two years back a woman had stayed in room no 306 and done suicide at that point because her lover doesn’t turned up. He told me last year also two more people died at the same location, which was also staying in 306. However he was happy that he had not listened any this kind of news this year. I thanked to the God and in the early morning I came back to my city.

( A fictional Love story, written by me)

An encounter with a beautiful Woman

Yesterday was a good day for me. As I seen the most beautiful women on earth. If anybody wants to know about how a beautiful women should be like then he should see her. She was wearing yellow sari with flowers printed on it. She was looking gorgeous. Anybody can fall in love with her in seconds. She was like a ready to marry woman, nobody would not think for seconds if he got chance to marry her.

Her hears were shoulder long. She had left her hears untied. Her hear were playing with her face, some times they come in front of her face and then she put then back with her hands.It looked like that a moon was coming out of black clouds. Her body color in very fair. Her hand and face is like a white ice, creating a sensation in mind to touch this ice. She walks like a sweet breeze. When she passes near me, I feel a strange feeling in my heart.

She as a whole was a great work of God. The person who will marry her will be very lucky one. I got the time to remain near her for whole day. Although there are lots of other people are also present. However my eyes were only searching for her glimpse. I want to see her and her more.I tried to see her many times. Soon she realized that I was trying to see her. Then after whenever I try to see her she was always seeing towards me.

In this the whole day passes and evening comes. I was standing on the side of my friends chair, she was seating in front of me. She was alone at that time. Now I can see her more clearly and she can also respond. Whenever I tried to see her, I recognize that she was already seeing. This is a good and strange situation for me. It looks like that she was interested in me.However I was always weak in this field. I have reached at this gesture at my times, but unfortunately not being able to cash this opportunity. Second I was their on official work.

Third the woman was so beautiful that I felt like small in front of her. Fourth the single day is very small times for me take any decision. Finally I decided to not to further involve in it and not see towards her. Soon she also realized this thing. Then comes the time of work off and she goes back to her home without seeing back towards me. At the end of day I lost again a beautiful woman. However still I am happy that I am fortunate enough to see a beautiful creature of God.

Love to all Arvind

People can find mention about Rajanaka Bhumi Chand in Brahmand Purana, an ancient Hindu religious literature. As per Purana, he originated from the Sweet of Maa AMBIKA (Maa Parvati) to fight with cruel Rakshasha (devil). After killing Rakshasha, Maa Parvati blessed him with kingdom of Trigarta situated between three rivers of Satluj, Beas and Ravi.

My Village



My village is situated in Tehshil Baijnath in District Kangra in Himachal Pradesh (India). Its name is Kanarag. It is 8 km from Baijnath. Baijnath is a small town, situated on Pathankot-Manali national highway. It is famous for its ancient lord Shiva temple. About my village, though it is not associated with any historical event; however it is unique in many ways. It is important for me because my lots of memories are associated with my village.

This is a small village with 30-35 houses, which includes the 10 houses of Katoch’s (Rajputs) and 10 houses of Gaddis and 15 houses from the lower castes. Though it is small village, but it is unique in its structure. Here everybody is dependable on each other. Most of the lands are owned by the Katoch’s, approximately about 70%. It is difficult for them to manage all the lands. Therefore they take the help of people from lower caste.

This is the main resource of earning for the people of lower caste. Gaddis are wondering caste of Himachal Pradesh. They mainly own goats and cattle. In summer, they go up hills with their cattle. In summer as snow melts and new grass is available in abundance on these hills then they reach there to utilize this opportunity. They live there on hills for up to six months and come back before winter starts. With them they also take cattle of other villagers.

In this unique way all castes are totally dependable on each other. Nobody can survive without the help of others. Gaddis exchange their cattle and goats for food with the Katochs and others. Gaddis even provide lot of medicines and rare vegetable which grow only up hills. These medicines sometimes cost around $200 to $500 dollar per kg, however, because of unawareness and non ability of buyers, they sell them for very less cost or sometime for free.

Second unique thing about my village is its water system. This area is prone for water shortage. But the elders of village have very wisely constructed a small canal from a place 3 km away from village to the village. This canal was made by villagers with great contribution by my late grandfather Sh Uttam Chand Katoch. This canal includes six small bridges made to avoid the contamination of water.

Due to this canal our village has not seen any water shortage in past. Third is the calm environment of my village. This calmness is like a meditation. One can hear the voice of following river water from two km away. People talks from kilometres away can be easily heard here. In cities, we will never get this opportunity. In every part of village, one can hear nature talking to him and enjoy lots of miracles of nature. I invite people to explore the beauty of my village and Himachal Pradesh. You will really remember this for your life.

The way we look at old age

We all grow old in this world. This is the adamant truth of life which everyone of has to face. No one in this world can run from it. However unfortunately nobody wants to accept this truth. Every one behaves as old age is not going to come to him. All this is clear from our behavior towards the elderly. Day by day lot of example comes to surface where people have misbehaved their elders.

Elders are treated in way as they are useless. People forget that these are the same elders who are responsible for our growth. They have sacrificed golden part of their life for our growth. They have done everything for us, what they can do for us. Still knowing the most of facts, our behavior doesn’t change towards them. Let’s forget all the elders; our behavior even towards our parents is not good.

They are treated like waste in homes. Situations become even worst when they gave all their holding to us. After this they become of no use to us. There are many examples in the world, where children have taken everything of their parents and after that have thrown them in open.This thing is not restricted to any country, religion or caste. This is a common practice every where. Why this degradation in our values is coming?

The people who have grown us from a small innocent being to an adult man and now we are doing this to him. People who are not taking care of their parents, how we can expect from them that they will take of other elders. In the golden years people again become weak like child and need extra care from the society. This not a big demands when we compare with their sacrifices for societies.

A society can remain in healthy state, if everyone all this is taken care of. We can not make a healthy society unless we take care of our elders which are main part of our society. Why we forget this simple truth that we will also grow old. Due to our attitude, many elderly have to go through many difficulties and exploitation. These situations are some time so inhuman that we can not imagine them.

They are some time tortured and even murdered by the servants. They are forced to beg for food. For me this is a biggest crime which as adult we are committing and we must have to realize it. Second thing is that desires of elders are not many. They feel happy just by seeing us happy. They demands from us only small-2 happy moments. Only few hours a week time of us is enough for them. But we have become so much selfish that we can not see this simple truth.

Why Ayurvedic medicines are better?

Many people believe that Ayurvedic medicines are better than the mostly used allopathic medicines. Now the question which arises is that all this is true or people are just creating the rumors. In this article, I am sharing few of the scientific and general facts which prove by Ayurvedic medicines are better.

1) Ayurvedic medicines comes from the natural sources therefore it is easy for the body to accept these medicines than the allopathic ones which comes from the organic sources.

2) The real drug (active part) inside the Ayurvedic is available in very small quantity therefore causes no or negligible side effect as compared to allopathic medicines.

3) Allopathic medicines are usually given in larger quantity to create immediate result which put extra pressure on our essential organs like liver and therefore causes many side effects. Therefore if these medicines are taken for long time then can causes damage to our essential organs.

4) Most of allopathic medicines do the job of preventing then treating the disease. By taking the allopathic medicines people feel relief but the actual problem remains with in.

5) Allopathic medicines market is controlled by big medicine companies which wants to increase there business at any cost and not the relief to the people.

Baba Ramdev entering homes in India

Baba Ramdev medicines have already seen a great acceptance among Indian. Even people living abroad are also getting attractive towards the therapies suggested by the Baba. Baba Ramdev have seen in recent past lot of controversies regarding the claims made by him about his medicines and Yoga. However the one interesting point which we all forget about this controversy is that whole of the medicines provided by the Baba’s pharmacy are nothing new but the same ayurvedic medicines written in our old Indian Vedas.

Yoga techniques are nothing new and are same built by our saints in the past. Baba Ramdev has only helped by taking this work passionately and provided these medicines in the scientific way to us. The problem with the Indian society is that we all have almost forgotten about the abundance of knowledge available with us. Ayurveda and Yoga have remained mostly neglected in the free Indian nation and hardly anything constructive work done for the more progress in this field.

Allopathic treatment is not a bad thing and here doesn’t arise any comparison among the both way of treatments. Both the ways are superiors in their respective fields. However the total dependency on the allopathy is not right because allopathy is effective in treating disorders when they have happened whereas ayurveda can help in the prevention of the diseases. Simple techniques of yoga and meditation can work wonder in treating the many of today’s stress related problems. Baba Ramdev has done commendable job in bringing ayurveda and yoga to mainstream and again uniting Indians with these lost treasures.

No body should feel threaten with the rising popularity of the Baba. Health is a kind of matter which can not be commercialized; today healthcare sector has become big business in India. Many big hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and businessman are dependent on the illness of the people. In simple words the growth of this industry depends on more of us becoming ill. This is great tragedy in the world that this health sector which should be there for the betterment of the people has actually become an exploiter of all of us. For example Pharmaceutical market in India and world filled with many unethical and profit oriented strategies where 60 to 70% medicines are 100 to 10000 times priced from their manufacturing costs.

The problem is that this industry has become very large and many people and professionals are associated with it. Now if some cheaper alternatives are introduced to the people then many of these organizations, governments and businessmen will suffer in billions of dollars. Allopathy is a good way to treat people however it is under the influence of lot of bad practices which are decreasing its real help to the billion of the people. On the other hand so far Ayurveda is away from these kinds of wrong practice due to non commercialization. However we can not say that this will remain true for the Ayurveda in future.

Equation of Desires and Happiness

Desires, desires, desires------and desires. We are all obsessed with them. If someone asks you a question that how a single human can have so many desires? Then it will be very difficult for you to answer this question because no body is able to answer this question so far. When one of our desires gets fulfilled then thousand more desires comes up instantly.

Desires are not bound to anybody. A poor can have them and simultaneously a rich can also have them. Desires are some thing, which everybody has in abundance. Every one has its own set of desires. Someone desires for money and other for a beautiful wife. Desires are endless. They can be from a small trivia to highly expensive thing.

Now question which comes is that is it good to have a desire or not? Definitely desires are good and they motive us to do many things in life. However the important thing is that they are must in controlled number and in one’s achievable limit. Desires provide us the energy to fulfill our dreams. It gives our goals the motive and direction. One can only fulfill his dreams, if he has desire for it.

Desire is first basic thing to achieve something. All the world leaders who have achieved excellence in their lives have strong desire for achievement. Desire work as the basic ingredient in fulfilling our dreams. Therefore desires are necessary, as they give direction to our life. However on the contrary, we are usually over burdened by our desires.

We have desires much more than what we can achieve? Most of our desires originate due to the others achievements or their lifestyle. We want to become or look like them. Second the world is shrinking, making more things in our reach. This whole process is putting more pressure on our decision power. TV and Media are also increasing our desires on daily basis by providing information about newer things. Ours friends and relative’s achievement also generates more desires in us. All these things make us under more pressure of desires.

If we do not control our desires at right time then they can even swallow us. Many people do lot of mistakes due to these desires, like take huge loans which are difficult to repay for them. We spend unwisely on irrelevant things. We do not save for our future. These small things if not taken care of can take away our happiness and make us miserable. However few people think about this. On the other hand most of us go on increasing desires for whole life.

A child is born no desires, but as, he progress in life, soon he starts accommodated lot of desires. There is nothing bad in increasing desires, but the main problem come when they remain unfulfilled. More desires we have, more the chances of unfulfilled desires. And more the unfulfilled desires, more sad we are. Therefore we born as a happy child and die as sad human being. We have to learn this simple principle in life that we can not achieve everything in life.

We can only plan our life and try to achieve things wisely. Consider this formula of Happiness-Happiness= Desires fulfilled/desires new generated+ old desires. Happier we will be when the denominator is more and base is less. We only consider about increasing the numerator and not decreasing the denominator. It is not possible in this world to achieve everything; however it is possible to limit our desires. We can become happy by using the second way of decreasing base. Therefore by making our desires in control we can become happy.

Unknown Fears

There nearly 90% of people in world who are affected by unknown fears. These fears are wiping out them slowly and slowly. With the growth of technological advancements and hectic schedules, these fears are becoming more and more prominent. The main fear among them is fear of future. Future is not seen by anybody and nobody knows what's there in future is for him.

Still most of us remain anxious about our future. The main reason for the rise of future worries as major fear is that we are living in extremely erratic world. Nothing here is stable. Everybody is running for something. Competition is very stiff and therefore people at the lower level obtain no right to make their decisions. They are just forced to behave, live and work according to the orders of the others.

As the things are not in their control, therefore frequently situations become out of their control. They find themselves as hostage in the hands of others. Any losses out of these conditions where they have no authority make them apprehensive about their future. Therefore they got trapped in the middle of situation from where they can not think about the other alternative. This makes them frustrated and nervous about the future.

In this situation they are not able to do anything, but only can fear about the future and slowly die. Second fear is of the change. As we become old with the job, then the fear of new things starts affecting us. The fear of competition from new generation and non proficiency in the new technology make us suspicious of ourselves. We start fearing that the new generation with take over us or we will be unable to cope up with the new technology.

Our superiors exploit this situation to compare us with the new ones. More problems come when these new generation got success more than us. Here starts the fear of inferiority. In our subconscious mind we start believing that we are inferior. Technology divide and variable education streams making it more prominent. Third is the promotion of juniors and or same ranks to higher positions. Many times due to the different circumstances many people go higher than the other of same or more potential.

These circumstances are not in the control of anybody. But these types of developments make us fearful about our position to them. Many times these fears also come true, when people are let down by superiors cum juniors earlier. These situations become worst, when the humiliation is in front of others. These situations may not happen to most of us, but we become fearful by seeing the others fate. Fourth is the inability to cope up with the prevailing situations. Many times in life, situations become more difficult than our expectation.

Here we find ourselves unable to cope up with them. Like the jobs assigned to us or the expectations from us are more than our current potential. Under the pressure or prestige, we cannot admit it publicly. Therefore from the day one we start fearing about the outcome. These are some kinds of fears which are killing the peoples worldwide slowly. We are required to know of our fear well and rectify them, before they can damage us by any mean. Best way is to fight them and come as champion out of them, if we understand our fears and doesn't do anything to control them then we are just knowingly killing ourselves.

My First love My Teacher

I still remember those days when I was in six standards. That was very tender age in all ways and as a child; I was not much grown emotionally at that stage. I was not very clear about love and sex. I had never experienced love for any girl before. All the girls in my class were same for me as boys. There was no restriction on sitting with them. We play with them and sometimes even touches them also. However never any feeling of love or sex came in my mind.

Everything was going smoothly, one day a beautiful English teacher came to our class. She was our new English teacher. This was her first assignment. She had recently passed her masters in English. She was approximately 22-23 years old. Her height was average. She was a clear example of how a beautiful and adult woman should look like. Her every body part was in a mature state of adulthood. This was my first experience of seeing a so beautiful woman. I could clearly see a huge difference between her and the girls of my class.

She started taking our class. I first time realized in my life some kind of attraction for a girl. A strange feeling started taking over me. Whenever I saw her then I wanted to see her even more. Dreams of her started coming into my mind. I started attending her class and doing work given by her more seriously. I wanted to come in her favorites list. I felt bad when some male teacher talks to her. Day by day my madness for her started growing. I wanted to remain more and more with her.

I started dreaming of marrying her. These were my true feeling first time for some one and some kind of sexual attraction was also present in it. I had the first time realized the difference between a man and woman. I wanted to touch her and sleep with her. I wanted that she should take over all of my responsibilities. She should make food for me, wash my clothes and remain with me forever. These are unknown feelings which gripped me at that time. I never encountered such feelings before.

One day came when she gave us a test and told us that she would give a surprise gift to the topper. I didn't wanted to lose this opportunity; so, I worked very hard for the test and stood first in it. While announcing the numbers in test, she came near me and kissed on my face. For some minutes I was in sky. For me her kiss was like winning a big battle. With this my feeling for her became even stronger. Feeling of her lips touching my face were making me mad. I started dreaming to kiss her also.

One month before our exams news came that my favorite teacher is going to be married this week and she would now never attend school again. I felt like that some one had taken ground away from my feet. My dreams looked shattered in few seconds. I felt very bad about the guy who was going to marry my teacher. First time a desire to grow early and propose her arose in me. However with the passes of days everything starts coming to normal. Again I became a normal child. But definitely she was able to teach me the difference between a woman and girl.

How difficult it to be like a woman?

We say that women are one of the greatest creatures of the mankind. There are lot of songs, stories, literatures and poems, which are written in admiration of them. However in reality when we see the actual condition of many women around us then all these things just look as false quotes. A woman plays a very important role in the expansion of mankind; it is difficult for the any human to come in to this world without the support of her.

She feeds us in her womb for nine months and suffers all the pains without showing any sign of regret. She plays lot of other important roles in our lives without which it is not possible for us to live a happy life. However, still our behaviors toward women require a substantial change. A woman starts facing discrimination in life from her birth and this whole story continues till her death. Women even after so many years of development of mankind are not able to find any respectable place for themselves.

In India everyday, we can find many cases in which women are burned alive. Hundred of women are molested or raped every day around India. The difficulty with the women is that there is no place in world which is completely safe for them. Every man only believes them as the object of sexual satisfaction and nothing more. Many people around us only move as hunters with women as their pray. This is a question of vast shame for country like India where we give lot of respect to our mother and claim our country as our Mother.

We even worship women in the figure of many Goddesses; still we do not provide the much needed respect to the small innocent and insecure goddesses present among us. It is very heartening to give pain to one of the best creature of the god. Women are the only creature in this universe which is burned before their death. Women suffering are endless; it is only due to their great emotional power we are not able to see them.

Most of the time she remains in the sufferings but still she does not show her pain to others. It is a tough task to consider world without them, however the decreasing number of girl child shows some concerns. We need to come out of the double standards against the women and provide them with a good world to live.

Indian Journalism

Journalism has come a long age in India. It has seen long changes in India culture and society. Today with the entry of many new news channels and print media, its concept are changing very fast. Toady this is a hot carrier option for the many youth of India. Newer colleges are coming up every year to offer the journalism courses. Twenty years back there were very few selected individuals, who have the courage to enter into journalism.

Rewards in term of money were not very high, but the risks associated were present in abundance. Corruption was at its peak. Media was mostly influenced by the political parties. More over the number of print media was very less and TV was in its initial stages. Therefore choosing a carrier in journalism at that time requires lot of guts. That’s why we are seeing these journalists today as the Icons in their field.

Their name is like a brand image for many news channels and print media. Many news channels in India are just running due to their brand names. However, in recent years there are significant changes which are seen in every thing related to journalism. This has happened mainly due to two reasons, first due to the increasing influence of IT and seconds due to the emergence of cable TV in India. IT has played a big role in it.

Indian government initiatives have made it possible that internet must reaches to every town and village. Further competition in market forced reduction in the prices drastically.Now it is easy for people of India to interact with other people of the world and share their views. News has started circulating very fast. More and more information have now become accessible to common man. In India, before the emergence of cable TV, there were only one or two channels.

However the cable TV concept has revolutionized the whole Indian TV industry. New private TV channel have started emerging. With boundaries broken by the digital media, the need for news at fast speed has given birth to news channels. Also the success of some channels is making others to come in it. These news channels are providing the big opportunity to many Indian journalists and are helping in making the Indian journalism stronger.

Print media has also seen a substantial growth in last few years. With the increasing education slandered, more demand for quality work has emerged. Indian journalists are getting more opportunity due to this information demand. Indian journalists who are proficient in English are getting lot of readers in the Western countries. Internet is making new world jobs accessible to Indian journalists. With this we are going to witness a new era in Indian journalism.

Three ways to make a women happy

Woman is a wonderful creature of God. She is made by the God to spread happiness to mankind and that what she is doing in this world? Women have always remained ahead in fulfilling the desires of others. Every woman is very innocent and strives only for small praises. All the Women like every human being love praise. This is the time tested thing with women. Many people have used it and got success in winning the hearts of the women. We can also use this age old technique to make woman of our life happy. However we are required follow some caution in our behaviors. Women are very strong in understanding and analyzing behaviors. This is like a God gift to them.

They can very easily understand the motives behind your praise. If they found your praise superficial or lacking feeling, then they are not likely to respond to your praise. We are required to judge our praise well and avoiding repeated praises. We should not use complex praising sentences, which are difficult to understand. A simple and sincere praise is the best. Praise should be followed with constant efforts and good behavior.
Second thing which women like most is your concern for them. They feel happy if you show concern towards them. Best way is to put your feet in to her shoe. We have to come to their level and share their feeling. They usually like to remain in their shells. They have their fear factors. Before showing our concerns, we should be aware about them. We should not try to immediately break them in one go. However by respecting their personal space, we must show our concern. Just do this and see the result.
Even by simply showing concern for health can do wonders or concern for other things related to her. She will like it, feel as a special care is given to her.

One more interesting point about women is that they like to be gets appreciated in front of others. They feel very happy with this behavior. They like if someone appreciate their work or food. If you want to win her heart, then must praise her in front of others and see the result. Her feeling towards you will change dramatically. Other approach is to praise her in front of her friend or known ones, so that we can tell her about your praise and finally making a place for you in her heart.

Role of emotions in life

Emotions play a major role in our life because we are governed by them in parts of our life. Many people even after achieving success or attaining an old age remain in the grip of emotions. This is not the fault of anyone because we all are living in a close system of society where our previous behaviors and experiences determine our next actions. Some of the emotions like fear, sex, anger, love and grief etc are so strong that they compel us to do lot of things which we will never do if we can think on them properly. For example many people kill others due to angry or fear and we accept the crimes of the others.

Strong emotions are good but it is bad to be in control of them. Mostly we never realize when we come in the control of these emotions. In the situations of strong emotions lot of hormones are secreted by our body which makes it impossible for our brain to take any decisions. In this situation our most of the decisions are biased and are based on previous experiences or inherent behaviors. The problem is that when we go in the control of emotion then we are not only dangerous for our self but we become equally dangerous for others. We never realize how our behavior hurts others mentally and physically. In psychological and intellectual terms this state can be referred as non control on emotions or weakness of brain in controlling emotions.

For coming out of these situations we need control on our emotions and a strong brain which can easily face any emotional disturbances. For this we need to understand our emotions and their roles in our life. We need to realize that up to which extent we are in control of our emotions. Having knowledge about some thing is a one thing but to really correct them is a big fight. This is true in many episodes where people commit suicides due to not having control over their emotions. In these situations emotions have eaten the person and most of these people never realize that they are the victims of their emotions. Second thing is to make our brain and thinking power strong enough so that no emotion can take control of us. This thing can we achieved with positive outlook and regular small exercises like realizing emotions but not allowing them to disturb us.

How right was Saddam Hussein’s execution?

I am not trying to create a controversy but I am only want to create a debate on the whole issue of execution of Saddam Hussein. I want to ask that was it the right way adopted for the execution of Saddam Hussein.

We may agree that he had committed great crimes against the civilization. However I have few more points to raise that Why Amnesty has to condemn this hanging and whole procedure of trail adopted against Saddam Hussein, because there are lot of questions which remained unheard and a lot of hurry is shown by the US-aided government to hang the Saddam Hussein.

At present Saddam Hussein was in the state of helpless and therefore it was not necessary to hang him and life imprisonment was enough to realize him of his crimes. Saddam Hussein hanging has created a big set back to the reconciliation drive in the Iraq. Today with this execution the divide between Shia and Sunni communities of Iraq has become wider and may effects any efforts of Iraq’s reconstruction.

Moreover this hanging has created anger in the Islamic world and may lead to more extremists’ activities around the world. It world be better if Iraqi government waited for some more time. This hurry in the hanging of the Saddam Hussein could be combined with the elections in the US and a try by the US president for increasing his popularity. The leadership of the world’s top nation like US needs to show right examples to the world and should avoid further them self from any effort like this.

What is next for Iraq?

How strong mind can work?

Mind also known to have many unique powers and many things which we believe on the world is only due to the power of our mind. This simple mind is known to create many complicated things around all of us. Mostly an average person is only available to use 2 to 5% of his brain, now any one can imagine the possibilities by using 100% of the mind.

Mediation has helped many people in understanding their hidden powers and using their mind more. In its full potential mind can create many wonders which are otherwise difficult to believe. Mind holds inside it more hidden secrets which even the scientists of today are not able to tell us. Our feeling, emotions and thoughts all go through our mind and create a world for us. We see things as mind tells us to believe.

Many psychologists have proved lot of theories in front of us; however every theory leads to more hidden secrets. There are many people who have even used their mind to communicate with the people staying thousands of kilometers away. Some believe that mind has imaging powers and others contradict it. The only way to understand mind is to by understanding our own minds power.

Life is a great joke

Like is a great joke most of the times, however the problem is that most of people live this joke very seriously. Life is given to us by God for enjoying and creating fun in life. Whereas we all see lot of sorrow and unhappiness around us, moreover the amazing fact is that most of these sorrows and unhappiness are our creations or overall our all these are the weak points of society. Either we commit most of mistakes in life due to our greed or forced by the society to commit these. However in all this run we miss many beautiful moments of the life. Life is full of many exciting things which offer a great enjoyment to all of us.

We all have born in this world with no thoughts and desires and a child only wants to enjoy his life. However we burdened this innocent soul from childhood with lot of expectations and desires. In this way a circle of expectations and desires starts moving in the life of every person. At the end we get an egoist person out of this child who is finding difficult with the changing time and die as an unhappy soul. Enjoying life is a great art which very-very less people know on this earth. For enjoying a life, a person is required a deep insight on life free from all the worldly things.

We all know that there are many people who even after living in the big houses are unhappy and there are strange wanderer who are endlessly happy even not having anything. This is a strange reality of life which many mystics around the world have tried to explain from time to time. Life looks strange to people who do not understand it and it becomes a great joke and excitement for those who master it.
