THE POWER OF EMOTIONS

PRAVASI BHARATIYA DIVAS

Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (Hindi: प्रवासी भारतीय दिवस, English: Non-Resident Indian Day) is a celebratory day observed (starting in 2001) on 9 January by the Republic of India to mark the contribution of the overseas Indian community towards the development of India. The day commemorates the return of Mahatma Gandhi from South Africa to Mumbai on 9 January 1915.

Established in 2000, it is sponsored by the Ministry of External Affairs of the Government of India and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the Confederation of Indian Industries and the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region. A celebratory event is held on 7–9 January every other year in an Indian city: a forum for issues concerning the Indian Diaspora is organised and the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Awards are given.

The decision to celebrate Pravasi Bharatiya Divas was taken in accordance with recommendations of the High Level Committee (HLC) on the Indian Diaspora set up by government of India under the chairmanship of L. M. Singhvi. The then Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, received the report of the Committee at a public function at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi on 8 January 2002, and announced the “Pravasi Bharatiya Divas” (PBD) on 9 January 2002. The day was chosen to mark the return of Mahatma Gandhi from South Africa to India in 1915.

The occasion is marked by special programs to recognise the contributions of NRI/PIO individuals of exceptional merit, felicitate NRI/PIO individuals who have made exceptional contributions in their chosen field/profession (Pravasi Bharatiya Samman (NRI/PIO Award)) and provide a forum to discuss issues and concerns of people of the diaspora. The event has been organised every year since 2003, and is sponsored by the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs and the CII (Confederation of Indian Industry), initially sponsored by FICCI.

In 2006, the concept of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) was launched during the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention at Hyderabad on 9 January.

UNWORTHY TO WRITE

Ruelha

I will no longer be posting,
Religious issues and somethings.
Nothing like that henceforth. 
Unless you hold a knife to my throat.
I'm just unworthy.
Although cleansed by mercy.
So no more spiritual posts.
I don't know anything real to boast.
I'm still learning...
myself, and discovering.
I don't know what I believe in.
I don't care if I lose or win.
I just want to maintain my peace.
And of course, not be out on the streets.
I want to spend some time alone.
Introspecting in my own zone.
So, if you've been following me,
I sincerely thank thee.
But, my posts will change dramatically.
Because I need to believe thoroughly.
If I myself don't know,
how must I, the way to show!
In pensive melancholy,
I bid adieu with an apology.
I encourage you,
to continue and pursue.
While I seek myself.
out of the dark well.

EDUCATE, DO NOT CONFUSE

GITA WISDOM # 56

Chapter 3 Verse 29

प्रकृतेर्गुणसम्मूढ़ाः सज्जन्ते गुणकर्मसु।
तानकृत्स्नविदो मन्दान्कृत्स्नविन्न विचालयेत्‌॥

When the followers err in understanding the subtle differences between various behavioural issues, the discerning leaders shall try to educate them instead of creating more confusion. (3.29)

प्रकृति के गुणों से अत्यन्त मोहित हुए मनुष्य गुणों में और कर्मों में आसक्त रहते हैं, उन पूर्णतया न समझने वाले मन्दबुद्धि अज्ञानियों को पूर्णतया जानने वाला ज्ञानी विचलित न करे
॥29॥

When the followers err in understanding the subtle differences between various behavioural issues, the discerning leaders shall try to educate them instead of creating more confusion. (3.29)

Have a great weekend!

MAY BE

The Lightening bug

Hiding beneath the layers of masks, lies a little child with innocent eyes and golden heart. This masquerade has been prolonged for far too long. The heart craves for freedom and the mind its peace, may be the ulterior universe has it all!

May be one day, the oppressed strength, the unshed tears and the suppressed emotions find their way back, to stand tall against the injustice, that started it all!

May be one day, the cowardly brave evolves into a lion heart.

May be one day, this piercing hopelessness shapes into acceptance and faith.

May be, just may be, one day, life is what it is and not the romanticisation of pain and hope.


Yayy. I survived upto 50th post.

LEADING FROM THE FRONT

GITA WISDOM # 55

Chapter 3 Verse 26

न बुद्धिभेदं जनयेदज्ञानां कर्मसङि्गनाम्‌।
जोषयेत्सर्वकर्माणि विद्वान्युक्तः समाचरन्‌॥

The knowledgeable leaders do not create confusion amongst the followers. They tend to set up a worthy example for the juniors by following the right course of action and ensure that the others follow their path. (3.26)

परमात्मा के स्वरूप में अटल स्थित हुए ज्ञानी पुरुष को चाहिए कि वह शास्त्रविहित कर्मों में आसक्ति वाले अज्ञानियों की बुद्धि में भ्रम अर्थात कर्मों में अश्रद्धा उत्पन्न न करे, किन्तु स्वयं शास्त्रविहित समस्त कर्म भलीभाँति करता हुआ उनसे भी वैसे ही करवाए
॥26॥

The knowledgeable leaders do not create confusion amongst the followers. They tend to set up a worthy example for the juniors by following the right course of action and ensure that the others follow their path. (3.26)

Have a powerful day…

WHAT TO DO WITH NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

Hugh's Views & News  

Why do so many of us make New Year’s resolutions? Do they help? Are they a pain? Do they put pressure on us? Do they stress us out? Do they work? Do they give us something to look forward to?

What to do with New Year’s Resolutions

The only resolution I made on New Year’s Day (which worked for me), was the one I made on January 1st 1994. It was the day I told myself to stop adding sugar to tea and coffee. I’m still ‘sugar-total’ when it comes to drinking tea and coffee. Success!

If you’ve made some New Year’s resolutions, then good luck with them. If, like me, you haven’t, grab the nearest calendar and count how many days there are on it.

Why am I asking you to count the days on a calendar? There’s a good reason.

Did you count 365 days? Yes? 366, if…
