Nine Avatars with nine values for us! 3

Ever since childhood, I have been observing fast on NavratrI, as a child the only motive was to relish the food made for fast but later it became a religious belief to worship Maa Durga for 9 days.

As I observe fast for navratri this year and worship goddess Durga’s 9 avatars, a thought comes over, what are the qualities that we can imbibe each of these 9 days?

I think the 9 values or virtues whatever you wish to name them are:

Day1: Shailaputri-Fly High

She is the daughter of the mountains and teaches us never to give up and fly high to achieve all our dreams. Never be afraid of the heights and reach the top.

Day2: Bharmachirini-Spread Happiness

She fills our lives with bliss and happiness and leads us towards contentment in life. So, spread happiness around you through your acts and make people smile.

Day3: Chandraghanta- Realize your strength

She is the apostle of bravery and possesses great strength. She inspires us to be brave and realize and build our inner strength and a stronger physical strength to fight against any odd.

Day4: Kushmanda- creator of new life

She is considered the creator of the universe, the one brightened up the darkness in universe. Similarly we have been blessed with the wonderful power of bringing in new life in form of babies in this world and enlighten everyone’s life  with happiness and joy.

Day5: Skanda Mata- Commander-in-chief

She was chosen by gods as their commander in chief in the war against the demons. We are all the same in our daily lives at home and at work. She inspires us to fulfill our duties and maintain the dignity of our position.

Day6: Katyayani- Grant wishes

Katyayani was born to Kata as an avatar of goddess Durga and his wish for having a daughter was granted. We also grant so many wishes throughout the day of our kids, elders, husband and others from food to dresses and happily so.

Day7: Durga- Don’t be afraid of dark

Goddess Durga is black like goddess Kali and holds a sparkling sword in her right hand to battle against all evil. She teaches us to not be afraid of any darkness in life neither of the ones that exist in society nor of the color of skin (you are beautiful always).

Day8: Maha Gauri- Intelligence and Calm

She is the goddess who is intelligent, peaceful and calm. Also, Maha Gauri means extremely white which indicates calmness and purity. She inspires us to remain calm and composed and to practice intelligence leading ti peacefulness in every walk of life.

Day9: Siddhidatri- Healing Powers

It is believed that goddess Siddhidatri has supernatural healing powers and is always in a blissful happy pose. Doesn’t she remind us of our mothers? Yes, our mothers have the healing powers just their soft touch on our forehead or head seems to drain off all the negativity from life.

Shat shat naman to goddess Durga. Shubh Navratri and Happy Kanjaka pujan!!

Dating is cooler than a Relationship….Do you think so?? 1062

I am 101 % every one of you is going to agree with me on this – Dating is quite fun!! As it involves meeting new people, exploring new places with your gf/bf, the excitement of a new bond, those butterflies in the stomach. But during all this, somewhere deep down lays a sense of insecurity. Insecurity of losing your special someone because dating is not synonyms to the relationship. Where relationships have the commitment, dating doesn’t follow any such decree.

One of the most significant reasons that make dating cooler than relationships is commitment. It’s not easy to not make a connection and still be together. Many people think that settling down or being in a relationship can be boring, actually, they consider it as ‘Old school’. But you know what, if you never come under this league, perhaps, you will never experience the beauty of being in a relationship.

Relationships are not meant to be boring! In fact, being in a relationship makes your life beautiful and evolves you into a better individual.

Below are few reasons that’ll make you wonder how being in a relationship makes you a better person!

  1. A Relationship Rejuvenates You

Love is a very powerful feeling it makes us do things for others which we wouldn’t do for ourselves. A relationship changes you in a better person, your partner brings out the best in you. With your partner’s love and affection, they turn you into a better individual. Being in a relationship fills you with new hopes and aspirations.

  1. It changes your Attitude towards life

When single we usually only think about ourselves, act stubborn and resentful towards people and situations. But being in a relationship makes us think rationally and lowers down our ego and arrogance. It also invokes the sense of responsibility and a better understanding of life which we generally lack.

  1. You Start Feeling Good

The best part of being in a relationship is you start feeling happy and good about everything around. There is no space for stress or reasons to be depressed as two of you are always there to support each other and work towards the happiness of one another. Here, I would like to mention that this is the case of positive relations which are not forced.

  1. You Learn to Adjust

Every relationship demands adjustment, compromise, and sharing. When you get involved with someone the first thing which happens is you start adjusting according to your partners likes and dislikes. Slowly you start sharing your living space, you start making plans together and what not. being in a relationship teaches you how to express your love and care and how to keep your partners needs first.

  1. You Explore new things

The plus point of being in a relationship is your world expands, by this I mean you get to know about new things from you from a partner. You develop new likes and hobbies. You get exposed to a different kind of music, movies and if you both like reading then, books too ;). You also get a brand-new family and set of friends and cousins to hang out with.

  1. You feel Strong

Difficulties are part of life, we all face ups and downs, difficult situations in our lives. But having a partner by your side gives you the strength to fight any battle of life. Knowing that your partner has your back will give you the courage to go through any circumstances and come out with more positivity and belief that with that your partners help you can fight anything and everything

All relationships go through hell, only the real ones get through It …So, no matter how many girls or boys you have dated, there’ll come a time when you’ll realize the meaning of settling down with that special someone!

What Nirbhaya wants to appeal today for Praduman!! 4575

They ripped my body…

They ripped my dignity…..

They ripped my dreams…..

They ripped my life…………..and they are still alive…!!

If you remember me I am Nirbhaya, a girl who was brutally raped and left to die on 16th December’12’s night. I know it’s an old story now but I am here today because my soul is in pain and tormented once again…

I am suffocated, flustered and frightened too with news of Praduman brutally murdered and a little girl of 5yrs raped in their respective schools with in three days. My intestines were pulled outside my body and his throat was slit wide open….Oh Gosh!! You can’t imagine the pain and fear….Dictionary doesn’t and cannot have a word to describe what we went through..!

Okay, you said I was out for a movie at night… I was wrong and it was my mistake etc etc but I want to ask you today was Praduman also wrong in using a washroom of his school?? Was that little girl in a school uniform was wrongly dressed and out at a wrong time??

Please answer me……this goes to all those who are sitting on administrative chairs and are just concerned about how to remain seated on those positions forever. My question is to the lawmakers, to the ministers, to the officers….to the PM of this country.

Why can’t you frighten these monsters these devils like they frightened us? Me, Praduman…..&…&…

Yes, they frightened us to the extent that our souls are still trembling. Traumatize them…torture them as they did to us.

Where are you, the honorable human rights people?? Why don’t you stand with my and their and each such parent who has lost everything in their lives with us?

When you say ‘Human Rights’ its is for humans not for these demons. NO rapists have human rights…..

Give tortures ..give them trauma to the extent that each man with such sick mentality should get a shiver before even thinking of any such crime. Scare their souls…scare them to the hell…Do it NOW..NOW!

You named me…Nirbhaya(one who never fears)…let me tell you today…I was scared..really scared and I am scared today also. I am scared for each fellow girl…for each child out there…I am scared!

You made me celebrity over night. You named funds after me. No need of all this, if you really want to do something make your laws strict & deadly for rapists and molesters. No one should dare to touch anybody without his/her consent. Make my country safe for all women…for little ones. PLEASE!

Do what Yemen administration did to a child rapist and murderer. Punish them publicly…punish them as brutally as they were with us. It is my last appeal to you people.

Do it for me…for Praduman..for….for….

Do it so that there will be no more Nirbhayas and Pradumans…EVER!
