ENDLESS NIGHTS

MayaLand

Traveling along a convoy
But still rambling alone.

Your stunning shadow
Haunting me day and night.

Somewhere ,Someone must be spending  nights alone
Where Silence speaks all night long.

Keeping me tied up in the unlimited wait
Eyes seeking someone
A Rifling on the door.

Holding my heartbeat
Sledding my days and nights
Holding up myself with no hopes
For this endless gloomy night.

WORLD POST DAY

Theme for 2021: “Innovate to recover’.

World Post Day is an international day that happens each year on October 9, the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which started in 1874 in Switzerland.

The UPU was the start of the global communications revolution, introducing the ability to write letter to others all over the world. World Post Day started in 1969. Since then, countries all over the world take part in celebrations to highlight the importance of the postal service.

Many things happen on this day. Post offices in some countries hold special stamp collection exhibitions; there are open days at postal measures and there are workshops on postal history. The UPU organises an international letter writing competition for young people.

Postal systems have been in operation for many centuries. From back way back in history, people sent letters to each other. These were delivered on foot or on horseback by special messengers. From the 1600s the first national postage systems began springing up in many countries. These were more organized and many people could use them. Slowly countries agreed to exchange mail internationally.

By the late 1800s there was a global postal service, but it was slow and complicated. The birth of the UPU in 1874 opened the way for the efficient postal service in existence today. In 1948, the UPU become an agency of the United Nations.

October 9th was first declared World Post Day at the 1969 UPU Congress in Tokyo, Japan. The proposal was submitted by Shri Anand Mohan Narula, a member of the Indian delegation. Since then, World Post Day has been celebrated all over the world to highlight the importance of the postal services.

THE RESULT OF UNBALANCED MIND

GITA WISDOM # 72
Chapter 2 Verse 66-67

नास्ति बुद्धिरयुक्तस्य न चायुक्तस्य भावना।
न चाभावयतः शान्तिरशान्तस्य कुतः सुखम्‌॥ ~ 2.66

न जीते हुए मन और इन्द्रियों वाले पुरुष में निश्चयात्मिका बुद्धि नहीं होती और उस अयुक्त मनुष्य के अन्तःकरण में भावना भी नहीं होती तथा भावनाहीन मनुष्य को शान्ति नहीं मिलती और शान्तिरहित मनुष्य को सुख कैसे मिल सकता है? ॥66॥

An executive with an oscillating mind lacks focus and tranquility. He will be carried away by the external attractions. He will have neither peace nor happiness. (2.66-67)

इन्द्रियाणां हि चरतां यन्मनोऽनुविधीयते।
तदस्य हरति प्रज्ञां वायुर्नावमिवाम्भसि॥ ~ 2.67

क्योंकि जैसे जल में चलने वाली नाव को वायु हर लेती है, वैसे ही विषयों में विचरती हुई इन्द्रियों में से मन जिस इन्द्रिय के साथ रहता है, वह एक ही इन्द्रिय इस अयुक्त पुरुष की बुद्धि को हर लेती है
॥67॥

An executive with an oscillating mind lacks focus and tranquility. He will be carried away by the external attractions. He will have neither peace nor happiness. (2.66-67)

FEEL FREE, AND JUST BE…

Develop. Inspire. Transform.

the tree grows taller, and
sometimes I feel smaller
than life as it manifests before me

moments like these
come and go, we know,
and yet, as they arise,
we continually strive…

to know
the answers, yet,
will we remember to abide…

instead
of fighting
against the current
we feel inside, let it subside

and know,

this energy
will carry us
toward
our final destination, a ride
for the ages

are we not all sages?

I know not, yet
won’t let the conversation
drop, because

it’s not
about dropping,
or stopping, more learning

to love

more than your heart
has ever known
the capacity for…becoming

like the flowers,
and the trees, did
you know they speak of thee…

every day, watching
as we run around
limiting what we see,
within this dream

yet, we speak, and, they see
instead, maybe,
feel free, and just be…

WORLD HABITAT DAY

It is observed on the ‘First Monday of October’ every year.

Theme for 2021: “Accelerating urban action for a carbon-free world”.

World Habitat Day is marked on the first Monday of October each year, and is recognized by the United Nations to reflect on the state of towns and cities, and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. The day is also intended to remind the world that everyone has the power and the responsibility to shape the future of towns and cities. World Habitat Day was first celebrated in 1986 in Nairobi, Kenya, and the theme chosen for that year was “Shelter is My Right”.

The United Nations General Assembly decided that this should be an annual event and the first Monday of October was chosen. The day is celebrated in many countries around the world and various activities are organized to examine the problems of rapid urbanisation and its impact on the environment and human poverty.

Annual themes for World Habitat Day have been diverse and have included “Shelter for the Homeless”, “Our Neighbourhood”, “Safer Cities,” “Women in Urban Government,” Cities without Slums” and “Water and Sanitation for Cities.”

UN Habitat makes plain the need to plan cities in order to avoid the chaotic development of urban sprawl and all the associated problems that are created as a result.

Cities are engines of growth. Many people from rural areas globally long to move to cities to realize their dreams of a better life. Often this dream is not realized, but people continue to flock to cities for no other reason than a vague promise of a better future and prosperity.

A well-planned city can bring just that. Cities can be centres for economic activities and urban challenges can be addressed and opportunities can continue to be afforded to both current and future residents. Those who are successful succeed in getting jobs or starting their own businesses, which in turn creates more employment opportunities.

On the other hand, cities can also become a setting in which marginalisation, inequality and social exclusion can abound. Access to adequate housing is an important factor in ensuring this is avoided.

Another major issue is the ever-increasing risk posed by natural disasters as the climate crisis continues to develop. This risk is particularly significant in the Caribbean Region and Central America, where countries such as Haiti, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Bolivia have higher levels of poverty and where their cities are exceptionally vulnerable due to their population density and diversity.

High levels of population density, coupled with poor building techniques have given rise to shanty towns that have no proper infrastructure, community organization or security of tenure. In the event of a disaster of any kind, a complete breakdown can result in a chaotic situation and enormous loss of life.

ARCHITECTURE DAY

It is observed on the ‘First Monday of October’.

On the first Monday in October, World Architecture Day shows appreciation for the work that architects do. The day also encourages learning more about architecture throughout the world.

The International Union of Architects (UIA) designed World Architecture Day in 1985. The first Monday in October was chosen as it coincides with World Habitat Day. This was a way for the UIA to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of human habitats.

Theme for 2021: “Clean environment for a healthy world”.
