#31 Moon!

The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.

              “THE MOON IS THE REFLECTION OF YOUR HEART

                                                  &    

                  MOONLIGHT IS THE TWINKLE OF YOUR LOVE.”

#30 Girl!

#22 Save Life!

No Girl

So, No Mother

Ultimately No Life

Female infanticide still persists in many places. It is said that god created mothers because he could not be present everywhere. It is unbelievable to realize that a gods representative is continuously killing someone beautiful even before she can come out and see this world. The country has witnessed advancement in all fields but has it given equal opportunities to the boys and girls? This painting of mine shows, save the girl from those olden thoughts.

 

Save Girl

SAVE GIRL!

SAVE YOURSELF!

SAVE NATION!

#21 Race!

A winning horse doesn’t know why it runs a race. It runs because of the whip and pain. Life is a race, if you are in pain then clearly God wants you to win.

# 19 Educate!

 Educate! Educate! Educate yourself, Educate her, Educate him, Educate everyone in this world. Anything in this world will get reduced when it is used or shared except education, as one can never be over educated.                        You Can Never be Over Educated.                     Education plays vital role in this society as it is the only way to keep the society healthy as well as wealthy. One is said to be really poor when he doesn’t recognize the importance of education. A human can literally be a human only when he gets education. Education is not just going to school, studying hard and getting good results, but it also means to conquer new things towards the betterment of mankind. Education is a big social responsibility of every nation.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela

Education is for all. Educating a women is as important as equal to educating a man. Education of women is a must because the empowerment and knowledge of one woman can revolutionalise her family first and society at last. Every one have the “Right to education.”

“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.” ~ Brigham Young

#17 Freedom!

Nobody can give you freedom…. You take it.     

Freedom is right to live as we wish. The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act.

There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first. It is always better to die fighting for freedom than be a prisoner all the days of your life.

free “I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”                                                                                                            ~ Robert A.

#16 Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of the Walt Disney company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. Mickey Mouse was created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

Mickey first was seen in a single test screening. Mickey officially debuted in the short film Steamboat Willie (1928), one of the first sound cartoons. He went on to appear in over 130 films, including The Band Concert (1935), Brave Little Tailor (1938), and Fantasia (1940). Mickey appeared primarily in short films, but also occasionally in feature-length films.

Nine of Mickey’s cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Beginning in 1930, Mickey has also been featured extensively as a comic strip character. 

Mickey has also appeared in comic books and in television series such as The Mickey Mouse Club (1955–1996) and others. He also appears in other media such as video games as well as merchandising, and is a meetable character at the Disney parks. 

In 2009, Disney began to rebrand the character again by putting less emphasis on his pleasant, cheerful side and reintroducing the more mischievous and adventurous sides of his personality, beginning with the video game Epic Mickey.

#14 Blue Roses… ?

Flowers, especially roses, are used to convey many emotions we have for each other. Be it “I love you” or “I’m sorry,” sending roses is the perfect way to give someone a lift as well as send a message that you may feel reluctant to say.

So where and when did the color meaning of rose originate? Jack Goody, in his book ‘The Culture of Flowers’, says that giving meanings to flowers originally came from the East and while meaning can be highly subjective some are universally accepted. Also called floriography, the art of speaking with flowers originated in Persia where illiterate women of the Ottoman seraglios used flowers to communicate, as written language was forbidden.

we still use the rose to get our emotions across to the recipient.      “The single rose is, in essence, a symbol of completion, of consummate achievement and perfection”, says J. E. Cirlot in his ‘A Dictionary of Symbols’. Be it red, blue, white or yellow, roses convey so much alone or in a bunch.

Meaning of blue roses – is mystery, achievement of something impossible. Blue roses are exceptional and enigmatic, so they can be granted to inaccessible and enigmatic people. 

You can find the meaning of a blue rose in literature as a symbol of prosperity and love to those who seek it. The blue colour is also associated with royal blood, and that is why the blue rose can denote majesty and splendor.

The idea of the blue flower is to express tender and hidden emotional world, deep moods, secrets, that overfill soul of someone. Blue colour belongs to sky, water, endless space. Blue rose means quest for the impossible that never ends, the poetical daydream and reality, searching for mystic, anguish and hope, and sometimes is the melancholy, mood of hopeless sadness. Maybe this meaning appeared because blue rose represents never-to-be-fulfilled wish or something determined to remain as a dream.

#13 Vinayaka Chaturthi!

Ganesh Chaturthi is the Hindu festival celebrated on the birthday (rebirth) of Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvathi.

It is believed that Lord Ganesh bestows his presence on earth for all his devotees during this festival. It is the day Shiva declared his son Ganesha as superior to all the gods, barring Vishnu, Lakshmi, Shiva and Parvathi. Ganesha is widely worshiped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel.

The festival, also known as Ganeshutsav (“festival of Ganesha”) is observed in the Hindu calender month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shuklachaturthi (4th day of the waxing moon period). The date usually falls between 19 August and 20 September. The festival lasts for 10 days, ending on Anant chaturdashi (14th day of the waxing moon period).

Traditional stories tell that Lord Ganesha was created by goddess Parvathi, consort of Lord Shiva. Parvathi created Ganesha out of sandalwood paste that she used for her bath and breathed life into the figure. She then set him to stand guard at her door while she bathed. Lord Shiva returned and, as Ganesha didn’t know him, he didn’t allow him to enter. Lord Shiva became enraged and asked his follower ghosts to teach the child some manners.

Ganesha was very powerful, being born of Parvathi, the embodiment of shakti (or power). He defeated the ghost-followers (called “Ghana”s) and declared nobody was allowed to enter while his mother was bathing. The sage of heavens, Narada, along with the Saptarshi (the seven wise rishis) sensed a growing turmoil and went to appease the boy with no results. Angered, the king of Gods, Indra attacked the boy with his entire heavenly army but even they didn’t stand a chance. By then, this issue had become a matter of pride for Parvathi and Shiva.

After the devas were defeated, the trinity, the controller, preserver and destroyer of the universe launched an attack against Ganesha. Amidst the fighting, Shiva severed the head of the child. And brought on Parvathi’s rage. Seeing her son dead, Parvathi revealed her true self, as the Adi-shakti, the prime energy that fuels the universe and sustains matter. Taking on a terrible form, she vowed to destroy the universe where her son was killed and re-create a better one.

The Gods prostrated before her and Shiva promised that her son will live again. The trinity hunted the world for a head and came across a mother elephant crying for her dead baby. They consoled the mother and fixed the head of the baby elephant in place of Ganesha’s head. Lord Shiva also declared that from this day, the boy would be called as “Ganesha” (Gana-Isha : lord of the Ganas). In this way, Lord Ganesha came to be depicted as the elephant-headed God.

“SHUKLAAMBARA DHARAM VISHNUM
SHASHI VARNAM CHATUR BHUJAM
PRASANNA VADANAM DHYAAYET
SARVA VIGNA UPASHAANTHAYE”

Lord Ganesha always dressed in white represents purity. He is omnipresent with gray complexion like that of ash glowing with spiritual splendor. The Lord with bright countenance has four arms. I meditate on the God who can destroy all obstacles whether material or spiritual.

 

               

Sri Krishna Janmashtami, also known as Krishnashtami, SaatamAatham, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanti or sometimes merely as Janmashtami, is an annual commemoration of the  birth of the Hindu deity Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu.

The festival is celebrated on the eighth day (ashtami) of the krishna paksha (dark fortnight) of the month of bhadrapada (August–September). 

Sri Krishna is considered as the one of the most powerful human incarnations of the Lord Vishnu. He was born around 5,200 years ago in Mathura. The sole objective of Sri Krishna’s birth was to free the Earth from the evilness of demons. He played an important role in Mahabharata and propagated the theory of bhakti and good karma which are narrated deeply in the Bhagawat Geeta.

Sri Krishna was born in a prison in the custody of Kansa. Vasudev, His father immediately thought of his friend Nand and decided to hand over his child to him to save Krishna from the clutch of Kansa. Krishna grew up in Gokul and finally killed his uncle, King Kansa.

The actual celebration of Janmashtami takes place during the midnight as Sri Krishna is believed to be borned on a dark, stormy and windy night to end the rule and violence of his uncle, Kansa. All over India this day is celebrated with devotional songs and dances, pujas, arti, blowing of the Conch and rocking the cradle of baby Sri Krishna.

The Janmashtami celebration of Mathura and Brindavan, the places where Sri Krishna had spent his life, are very special. On this day temples and homes are wonderfully decorated and illuminated. Night long prayers are offered and religious mantras are sung in the temples.

  Today is SRI KRISHNA JANMASHTAMI, my best wishes and greetings to everyone.

“THE SOUL IS NEVER BORN NOR DIES AT ANY TIME. SOUL HAS NOT COME INTO BEING, DOES NOT COME INTO BEING, AND WILL NOT COME INTO BEING. SOUL IS UNBORN, ETERNAL, EVER-EXISTING AND PRIMEVAL. SOUL IS NOT SLAIN WHEN THE BODY IS SLAIN.” ~ Sri Krishna

 

#11 Childishness!

 I do have a childlike enthusiasm at times. I certainly enjoy life and get pleasure sometimes in childish things.

Long ago .. in 2007 ..  

A childish thought, when I saw  a gift paper which was wrapped around a  gift given to my mom, I felt … the design on that wrapper was representing my family.. my dad, my mom and INROJA (we 3 sisters) 🙂

  Have a look ..
