IT’S BLACK FRIDAY TODAY

Black Friday is an informal name for the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. The day after Thanksgiving has been regarded as the beginning of the United States Christmas shopping season since 1952. The term “Black Friday” did not become widely used until more recent decades, during which time global retailers have adopted the term and date to market their own holiday sales.

Many stores offer highly promoted sales on Black Friday and open very early, such as at midnight, or may even start their sales at some time on Thanksgiving. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe “The Day After Thanksgiving” as a holiday for state government employees. It is sometimes observed in lieu of another federal holiday, such as Columbus Day. Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off. Along with the following regular weekend, this makes Black Friday weekend a four-day weekend. Additional days off is said to increase the number of potential shoppers.

Black Friday has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States since 2005. Other news reports have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year for a much longer period of time. Similar stories resurface year upon year at this time, portraying hysteria and shortage of stock. This creates a state of positive feedback.

GITA WISDOM # 38

सत्त्वानुरूपा सर्वस्य श्रद्धा भवति भारत।
श्रद्धामयोऽयं पुरुषो यो यच्छ्रद्धः स एव सः॥

Every human being is possessed of a pattern of behavior (shradha) as per his mindset. This determines his role. He eventually embodies that approach as dictated by his shradha. (17.3)

हे भारत! सभी मनुष्यों की श्रद्धा उनके अन्तःकरण के अनुरूप होती है। यह पुरुष श्रद्धामय है, इसलिए जो पुरुष जैसी श्रद्धावाला है, वह स्वयं भी वही है
॥3॥

Every human being is possessed of a pattern of behavior (shradha) as per his mindset. This determines his role. He eventually embodies that approach as dictated by his shradha. (17.3)

IT’S JUST THAT

Poetry by Lishaka

its just that
surviving
isn’t the same as living

and saying thank you
isn’t the same as having gratitude

its just that
loving someone
doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in love

and at times
changing the world
doesn’t necessarily mean you’re saving the world

it’s just that
not knowing, what’s happening around you
doesn’t necessarily mean
you’re living under a rock

and being married
doesn’t necessarily mean
that you’re settled

its just that
we got to try
to not be disillusioned
by these so called
‘grown-up’ perspectives

its just that
we got to try
to not let faith
be based
solely on comfort
and excuses

it’s just that
we got to try
to not let that magic
within us
die

its just that
we got to try
to live our life
and not just
survive

PICTURE TALK # 02

There is very little to be written about this picture which is self descriptive. As well educated human beings we need to care for our parents at their old age the same way they did for us when we’re little kids. We should never forget their love, affection, care and sacrifice in bringing us up to become responsible adults.

Let’s be more caring and affectionate to all …

NATIONAL MILK DAY

National Milk Day (India) : 26 November

Verghese Kurien (26 November 1921 – 9 September 2012), known as the “Father of the White Revolution” in India, was a social entrepreneur whose “billion-litre idea”, Operation Flood, made dairy farming India’s largest self-sustaining industry and the largest rural employment sector providing a third of all rural income. It made India the world’s largest milk producer, doubled the milk available for each person, and increased milk output four-fold in 30 years.

He pioneered the Anand model of dairy cooperatives and replicated it nationwide, based on various “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches, where no milk from a farmer was refused and 70–80% of the price by consumers was paid in cash to dairy farmers who controlled the marketing, procurement, and processing of milk and milk products as the dairy’s owners. An invention at Amul was the production of milk powder from buffalo milk instead of from cow milk, which was in short supply in India.

He also made India self-sufficient in edible oils and fought against the “oil kings”, who used underhanded and violent methods to enforce their dominance over the oilseed industry.

MARADONA ~ A TRIBUTE

Diego Armando Maradona (30 October 1960 – 25 November 2020) was an Argentine professional football player and manager. Widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, he was one of the two joint winners of the FIFA Player of the 20th Century award.

Maradona’s vision, passing, ball control, and dribbling skills were combined with his small stature (1.65 metres (5 ft 5 in), which gave him a low centre of gravity allowing him to maneuver better than most other football players; he would often dribble past multiple opposing players on a run. His presence and leadership on the field had a great effect on his team’s general performance, while he would often be singled out by the opposition.

In addition to his creative abilities, he possessed an eye for goal and was known to be a free-kick specialist. A precocious talent, Maradona was given the nickname “El Pibe de Oro” (“The Golden Kid”), a name that stuck with him throughout his career.

HOW TO AVOID LENDING PEOPLE MONEY

Banter Republic

We’ve all been there really. Being asked for money and looking for a way out of the really uncomfortable spot. Because in all honesty, lending money might put your own current and/or future financial security at risk. Humans generally are insatiable and are ready to borrow you into penury. You owe it to yourself to make an ‘attempt’ to stop this from happening. It’s always worse if the leeches are members of your immediate family. But there’s hope! Here are a few ways out.

Make it a policy. Before lending out money to a friend, decide which you need most. It’s really not enough to make this policy, you have to enforce it. The policy is really simple, never lend money to family and friends. I’ll tell you this straight up, it’s a lot easier to get your money back from strangers than family and/or friends. With strangers, you…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!

Thanksgiving is a federal holiday in the United States, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It is sometimes called American Thanksgiving (outside the United States) to distinguish it from the Canadian holiday of the same name.

It originated as a harvest festival, and the centerpiece of Thanksgiving celebrations remains Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner traditionally consists of foods and dishes indigenous to the Americas, namely turkey, potatoes (usually mashed), stuffing, squash, corn (maize), green beans, cranberries (typically in sauce form), and pumpkin pie.

In American culture Thanksgiving is regarded as the beginning of the fall–winter holiday season, which includes Christmas and the New Year.
