FREEDOM OF SPEECH

A Voice from Iran

“64th story”

The leader of an unjust land gathered everyone weekly in the main square of the town. People had to show up in order to respect the leader, or there would be consequences and people didn’t want to get in trouble.

The leader always talked about great things about the land like freedom of thought, speech, choice, and dreams, but the civilians never saw those things.

Then at the end of each speech, the leader invited people to talk freely and share their thoughts if they disagreed with any part of his speech. The leader insisted that he loved to hear about it to be able to fix it. However, out of thousands of people, not one ever dared to speak up. Until a man named Sam finally did one day.

TRUE STATUS OF THE EQUIPOISED MIND

GITA WISDOM # 61

Chapter 59 Verse 2

विषया विनिवर्तन्ते निराहारस्य देहिनः।
रसवर्जं रसोऽप्यस्य परं दृष्टवा निवर्तते॥

Mere withdrawal from the objects of desire does not lead to the stage of equilibrium. A dedicated executive shall completely give up all desires to achieve a higher mental status, that enables him to face the world of challenges without getting worked up. (2.59)

इन्द्रियों द्वारा विषयों को ग्रहण न करने वाले पुरुष के भी केवल विषय तो निवृत्त हो जाते हैं, परन्तु उनमें रहने वाली आसक्ति निवृत्त नहीं होती। इस स्थितप्रज्ञ पुरुष की तो आसक्ति भी परमात्मा का साक्षात्कार करके निवृत्त हो जाती है ॥59॥

Mere withdrawal from the objects of desire does not lead to the stage of equilibrium. A dedicated executive shall completely give up all desires to achieve a higher mental status, that enables him to face the world of challenges without getting worked up. (2.59)

It is widespread from the Terai in both Nepal and India to Sri Lanka, and listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List. It is an arboreal species of gardens and wooded country which eats fruit and insects. It is fairly tolerant of humans and often seen in city parks. It nests in a tree hole, laying 2-4 eggs. It forages on mangos, ripe jackfruit, papaya, banana, figs and similar cultivated fruit trees. Its habitat includes urban and country gardens though it tends to eschew heavy forest.

LIVING ABOVE THE PAIN

Roth Poetry

Somewhere above the pain there is life

A place where one can live and function

Where hopes and dreams can still be achieved

Living above the pain does not make it go away

It only allows one to be in control

Pain lies rooted in one’s being

A constant reminder

Rearing its ugly head

Vying for control

Only to be suppressed once more

By hope determination and faith

Unwilling to resign oneself to fate

Knowing that above the pain

Above the pills

There is light and hope

It is a choice one must make

Every day all day long

***************

*A tribute to my wife Ruth, who makes this choice every day, all day long!

INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY

International Mother Language Day is a worldwide annual observance held on 21 February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to promote multilingualism. First announced by UNESCO on 17 November 1999, it was formally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly with the adoption of UN resolution 56/262 in 2002. Mother Language Day is part of a broader initiative “to promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by peoples of the world” as adopted by the UN General Assembly on 16 May 2007 in UN resolution 61/266, which also established 2008 as the International Year of Languages.

The idea to celebrate International Mother Language Day was the initiative of Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, 21 February is the anniversary of the day when the people of Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) fought for recognition for the Bangla language. It is also celebrated in West Bengal, India.
