Videos and Pictures of Batt Puja Kangra Himachal

Kangra Belt of Himachal is known for number of festivals. Batt Puja is also one of it. This Puja is believed to be must for every married couple in this belt and mostly performed by every married couple. Recently, I also got chance to visit one Puja. This Puja is believed to help people by clearing their way to Heaven and help in acquiring credit of other fast and religious rituals. Though, slowly these traditions are dying and new generations are going away from these traditions. Therefore, I thought of uploading videos and pictures of this Puja so that next generations can watch our rich tradition. Video is not very fine still it provide a good watch.

Increasing commercialisation of education in India

Read the new article - Increasing commercialization of education in India and its side effects

In recent times, we are witnessing a new trend in India and due to this trend; today education has become a way of earning lots of money by businessmen, politicians and bureaucrats. For most of these entrepreneurs education is nothing more than a way of making good returns from their investments and due to this reason, they are charging huge amount of fees from students, while students mostly have no option in their hands except giving this fees in the hope of getting a good education and later good future.

We can easily give the example of flourishing MBA colleges across India where average annual fees is around 5-10 lakh rupees; however, the facilities provided by these colleges are much below average levels. Most of these colleges remain more interested in making good bucks than providing quality education to students. Every year, number of students going for higher professional educatio…

When shortage of Electricity and Water will stop in India

Mostly by seeing impressive figures of growth people start believing that things are very fine in India and everything is only growing here. However, there are certain basic things which are actually going in the reverse direction like availability of electricity and fresh drinking water. Hardly, summer has knocked the doors of north India and people here have started witnessing long electricity cuts and shortage of drinking water.

Every year, our centre government and state government’s claims number of breakthrough in solving these two basic problems, however, next year situation only become even worse than the actual situation last year. At certain places, these situations have already started showing alarming signs with electricity and water not coming for even days. Problem of water is more alarming than the shortage of electricity because of the depleting ground water levels and ground water getting polluted due to industrial waste.

In some parts, ground water is no longer safe fo…

When decisions forced on us

In life, we all face number of situation when we are forced to take certain decisions which we never otherwise thing of taking. I put these decisions under the category of forced decisions because these decisions are mostly opposite of our basic nature. For example, if we do not like to hurt anyone in this world then sometimes due to the adamant or irritating attitude of few people we are forced to take decisions which can hurt these people.

However, we cannot blame directly ourselves for these decisions because other people some time constantly make number of efforts to hurt us or our feelings. Now if these people do not take care of our feeling then for how long we also can respect their feelings. Similarly, this finding also becomes relevant for us and we need to see reason hidden behind the bad behaviour of certain person towards us.

Therefore, we are also required to remain alert of our own actions and avoid hurting the sentiments or emotions of others. If in this world, every pers…

Who can forgive me?

Sometimes, in life we find ourselves in very strange situations where we find it very difficult to get some answers. One of such answer which many people search in this world is who can forgive them. In life, we all take number of decisions and steps where we do not have any clear idea of what is right for us. Therefore, we take decisions depending on few facts and perceptions.

We never know exactly in these situations that we are taking the right decision or not, therefore, a guilt of may have taken a wrong decision haunt us for whole life. In these kinds of situations, we find ourselves in very helpless position because we mostly do not know where we can find our answers. These kinds of the situations are very often faced by people who give lot of importance to emotions than the logics.

Many times, we also have straight logics available in front of us still our mind tells us to believe something else. These are really very complex situations, though they are simultaneously no situatio…

Huge cost of Armies

There are more than hundred countries in this world and every country has its own armies. Armies are mostly made up of the strongest people from these countries those are provided with latest weapons. Every country wants their army to be among the strongest armies in the world.

Therefore, there are many countries in our world which spend at the tune of 20% to 30% of their GDP on holding these big armies and in certain war and terrorism effected countries cost of armies even go beyond this range. If we calculate the cost of all armies of the world then it will come out in many-many billions.

If we wisely calculate then this money is enough for giving food, clothes and shelter to every needy person on earth and if we do this then no one will die on this earth due to the shortage of food, clothes and shelter. However our hatred and distrust on each other is not allowing this to happen. We are busy in creating new weapons of mass destruction which can destroy earth many times. We are busy i…

Changing Job Concept in India

IN the last few years, India is seeing a massive change in the ways of people work here. Today, Indians are no more dependent of conventional jobs and they have many opportunities of attractive jobs available with them. These new jobs are changing the perceptions of people about jobs. Some of these jobs are so lenient that people are not even required to go out of their homes.
In this list, first comes the name of BPO industry which has made it possible to work at night for millions of Indians youngsters, which option was only available in manufacturing industry so for. Moreover, BPO industry has also helped many graduates and undergraduates in earning good amount of money for their good life style. Second place in this category is occupied by IT industry which has offered people many solutions for working and people can even opt for completing their work from anywhere.

People are only required to submit their projects on time and they can work from anywhere even from their homes. Third…

Importance of wasted Time

Thanks to modern fast life, we all are becoming faster than machines. Life is becoming only fast and fast due to competitiveness of our world. Today we are so much busy that we do not have time for our self. First we are busy in our work then in our house work and finally in other crisis. Due this we mostly start living an irregular life which causes lot of waste of energy, time and resources.

Mostly we land in situations where whole of our schedules lag behind or remain in problems and finally creating more tensions for us. In the end, after living such fast life we find our self in many difficult situations. This problem may be attributed as one of the main reason behind increasing metal tensions in the world.

The other biggest problem is that most of the people know about these things, however, very few of them are able to take any concrete actions for solving these problems. In the end we waste a bigger part of our life in these wasteful activities and repent in the old age for thes…

Debate on Power of God

From many centuries, people across the world are challenging the power of god in their own ways. In every challenge, god has shown his power to human beings, still many people do challenge god regularly. We all see many claims and counter claims on God, which sometimes strengthen or loosen our hopes on the God.

Almost all the religions points towards a force which is beyond our reach but still governs all of our fates. Simply, we all see this force as God. There are many miracles which are done by this force. Some people are present in this world those do not believe on the God and believe all these miracles as matter of chance.

On the other hand many religions from past times are pointing towards this unknown force. The belief on God provides people with a power to face difficult situations in world. The belief on the God has given birth to a great spiritual development for mankind which is helping many people in this world. God is still a very big power within all us and provides all …

How to become confident in Life?

Confidence is one of the most sots after thing in present world. Every person wants to have confidence and simultaneously, confidence is desired in every person. Most of us already know it’s important in life. We know how confidence can create a huge difference in our life. We have seen my confident people in our life and we have always tried to look like them. We have seen how confidence has made other people more successful than us. We like confidence and we want to be confident.

However, problem is that we are not able to achieve it. Very few of us are able to realize this. Moreover, it is also very difficult to remain confident in all conditions whatsoever they may be. For example many people at certain times are confident and at some other place and time they behave like people who lack confidence. To find a person who is really confident in all conditions and all situations is a hard job; however, if we meet one such person then we can clearly recognize differences between him an…

Why Comparison is a disease?

Comparison is one of greatest diseases present in our world and we are taught to do it from our birth. From our birth our parents start comparing us with other children. Our teachers compare us with other students. From the beginning we are being told to compare our self with others. This is a greatest disease, because everybody is born unique and comparison is just not possible. I am unique in my position and similarly, you are unique in your position. There is actually no person present in the universe whom with you can be compared.

Each man is a unique creature of god. Everybody has born in this world for first time and with unique skills. Therefore no comparison is possible. Comparison only brings trouble, if someone fall victim to this disease of comparison then he will become either very egoistic or very bitter. It all depends upon on whom you compare yourself with, if you compare yourself with people who are better than you, higher than you, greater than you, you will become bit…

How to mange a Servant? (Inside Servant's mind)

Yesterday I got a chance to witness confession of a servant. Earlier my thinking about the servants was not good. I thought that they are people who are physically strong but they have no intellectual ability. However, confessions of this servant changed my whole thinking about other servants. He made my perception more clear on right and wrong. He was doing his job for last ten years. He was getting two thousands rupees as a salary (45$). He was feeling very unhappy because the other servant in the house was told to leave his job.

The other servant was working for last fifteen years in house. He was told to leave job by the owner of house because owner found him guilty of cheating. The servant told me that no one in this world wants to cheat or do wrong things. It is the world which make him do all these things. When the owner himself go for shopping then he purchase a certain item for 100 rupees while same item is purchased by the servant in 50 rupees saving 50 rupees. He told that i…
