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)

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…

PAUSE

THE HIDDEN SOUL

We assure and reassure ourselves, it is ok, it is absolutely fine, it is just a little late, everything will fall into place one day, till then keep some patience and wait. But does it worth the wait? Does it worth your time? Always trying to be positive, but how can one be positive all the time, negativity does stick sometimes around, everything seems too meaningless, doesn’t it? It feels like over positive behavior too can cause pain unknown to us, creating more misery? Even why, when, what, and how becomes senseless questions with no answers, laughing at us. Giggling finally they succeed in crushing the wall of confidence, minor but damage is executed. Seems bizarre? How easily we broke on silliest things around, don’t we or maybe not, and sometimes strongest of storms can’t make us leave our path, seems strange, isn’t it?

If we can’t accept what…

चल दूर कहीं

Zoya Ke Jazbaat

चल इस दुनिया से दूर कहीं हम दोनों चले जाते हैं,
नदी से मोहब्बत और फल से मीठा रस लाते हैं।

आसमाँ को चादर और जमीं को बिछौना बनाते हैं,
सूरज की रोशनी और ठंडी हवा से सुकून पाते हैं।

फूलों से खुशबू और चाँद से चाँदनी चुरा लाते हैं,
चलो उस जन्नत में जाकर आशियाना बनाते हैं।

WORLD BRAILLE DAY

World Braille Day is an international day on 4 January and celebrates awareness of the importance of braille as a means of communication in the full realization of the human rights for blind and visually impaired people.

The date for the event was chosen by the United Nations General Assembly via a proclamation in November 2018, and marks the birthday of Louis Braille, creator of this writing system. The first World Braille Day was celebrated on January 4, 2019.

Louis Braille (4 January 1809 – 6 January 1852) was a French educator and inventor of a system of reading and writing for use by the blind or visually impaired. His system remains virtually unchanged to this day, and is known worldwide simply as braille.

Blinded at the age of three in one eye as a result of an accident with a Stitching awl in his father’s harness making shop, an infection set in and spread to both eyes, resulting in total blindness. He excelled in his education and received a scholarship to France’s Royal Institute for Blind Youth. While still a student there, he began developing a system of tactile code that could allow blind people to read and write quickly and efficiently. Inspired by the military cryptography of Charles Barbier, Braille constructed a new method built specifically for the needs of the blind. He presented his work to his peers for the first time in 1824.

In adulthood, Louis Braille served as a professor at the Institute and had an avocation as a musician, but he largely spent the remainder of his life refining and extending his system. It went unused by most educators for many years after his death, but posterity has recognized braille as a revolutionary invention, and it has been adapted for use in languages worldwide.

GOLD DUST

House of Heart

From the train window

I can see miles of Pine trees

that seem to go on forever.

There’s a golden wolf howling

at the moon

chanting to the midnight Gods.

By morning Pine trees give way to

Palms and screeching Cicadas.

Tonight the moon reveals the belly of

the world from which we all come.

All that I have left is a photograph.

Tell me night-time dreamer why you

hold so many secrets in your heart.

When I look into your eyes

all I see is star dust.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIDYA

Vidya Balan ( born 1 January 1979) is an Indian actress. Known for pioneering a change in the portrayal of women in Hindi cinema with her roles in female-led films, she is the recipient of several awards, including a National Film Award and six Filmfare Awards. She was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 2014.

Vidya aspired to a career in film from a young age and had her first acting role in the 1995 sitcom Hum Paanch. While pursuing a master’s degree in sociology from the University of Mumbai, she made several unsuccessful attempts to start a career in film, and featured in television commercials and music videos. She made her film debut by starring in the Bengali film Bhalo Theko and received praise for her first Hindi film, the drama Parineeta. This was followed by commercial successes in Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) and Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007), but her roles in the romantic comedies Heyy Babyy (2007) and Kismat Konnection (2008) had negative reviews.

Vidya went on to establish herself by starring in five consecutive commercial successes, which also earned her critical and awards recognition. These were in the drama Paa (2009), the black comedy Ishqiya (2010), the thrillers No One Killed Jessica and Kahaani (2012), and the biopic The Dirty Picture (2011). The last of these won her the National Film Award for Best Actress. She followed this with a series of films that performed poorly at the box office. This changed when she starred as a radio jockey in Tumhari Sulu (2017) and a scientist in Mission Mangal (2019). The latter ranks as her highest-grossing release.

Vidya also promotes humanitarian causes and supports the empowerment of women. She is a member of the Indian Central Board of Film Certification and hosts a radio show. She initially drew criticism for her fluctuating weight and dress sense, but was later credited in the media for her unconventionality. Vidya is married to the film producer Siddharth Roy Kapur.
