# 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.”

#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.

#12 Sri Krishna Janmashtami!

               

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 ..

#10 Little Red Riding Hood

“LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD” is one of the very famous story for kids. It is a French and later European fairy tale of a young girl and a big bad wolf.

The story in brief…….

One day,Little Red Riding Hood’s mother said to her, “Take this basket of goodies to your grandma’s cottage, but don’t talk to strangers on the way!” Promising not to, Little Red Riding Hood skipped off. On her way she met the Big Bad Wolf who asked, “Where are you going, little girl?” “To my grandma’s, Mr. Wolf!” she answered.

The Big Bad Wolf then ran to her grandmother’s cottage much before Little Red Riding Hood, and knocked on the door. When Grandma opened the door, he locked her up in the cupboard. The wicked wolf then wore Grandma’s clothes and lay on her bed, waiting for Little Red Riding Hood.

When Little Red Riding Hood reached the cottage, she entered and went to Grandma’s bedside.

“My! What big eyes you have, Grandma!” she said in surprise. “All the better to see you with, my dear!” replied the wolf.

“My! What big ears you have, Grandma!” said Little Red Riding Hood. “All the better to hear you with, my dear!” said the wolf.

“What big teeth you have, Grandma!” said Little Red Riding Hood. “All the better to eat you with!” growled the wolf pouncing on her.

Little Red Riding Hood screamed and the woodcutters in the forest came running to the cottage. They beat the Big Bad Wolf and rescued Grandma from the cupboard.

Grandma hugged Little Red Riding Hood with joy. The Big Bad Wolf ran away never to be seen again. Little Red Riding Hood had learnt her lesson and never spoke to strangers ever again.
