Should I be proud of this India?

image

I had always been a proud citizen of India but sometimes I feel so helpless and bad. I had always asked people of other countries to visit India but later I realise that what will I show them, the work done by people around 100 years ago! Now, we can only show them poverty, child-labour, girls being harassed or old women sitting beside the road and trying to earn their living. Inside a school it is taught that child labour is wrong but right outside the school noone cares about this child who is dirtributing pamplates.

People who are rich have many land plots, left carelessly but outside there are many who don’t have a proper closed place to even go to toilet. When a person from a city visits a village then he only tries to show how superior he is but only few actually work for making other’s condition better.

Once, when I was around 9 or 10, I saw a girl of my age working in my house and I couldn’t accept that situation. I asked her to leave but she said that her mom was ill and if she didn’t work then her family will suffer. Then I decided to teach her. I taught her every evening and then she stopped coming. My brother told that she had started going to a proper school and I was very happy. But when I was in class 8 my brother told that she is married. I was stunned! I was shoked! I listened my maid telling my mother that poor people make their daughters marry in early age to reduce the risk of getting raped or so that they don’t fall in love and take decisions all by themselves. Like really??!! How ridiculous that is… Is this India??!! Is this a Golden Bird??!! Seeing such people every where is frustrating and I don’t want it to continue. I want to make a difference. My mother says that once I get a degree then i’ll be able to change everything but I think why to wait for a perfect time to be served infront of me. I know the importance of degree but I want to make a start right now. I want to bring a change. I want to create an opportunity. I want to work for the once who need me as Vidisha Kaithal as a human not as some post-holder!

Girl, not a Barbie bell!

I am a girl ,
Not a Barbie bell!
You can’t touch my hair or kiss me everywhere!
Because I can punch you!
Oh yeah! I can do it on you.
I don’t wear heels,
So you better be on your keens.
Coz I can run after you,
To hit you with my shoe!
Oh! that’s true,very true!
And don’t imagine it to be virtual,
It can be real.
Not in any wonderland,
But in my world, where I live,
And that’s here, very near!

And he became a number!!

image

I called a friend of mine and said “kahan mar gaye ho, yaad hai naa ki kal Aayushi (other friend) ka birthday hai! Tum bhool mat jana ki tmko develope karwakr lani h”  (where have you died, do you remember that tomorrow is Aayushi’s birthday! You have to bring developed photos)
He replied “I am in bank, talk to u later” & banged the phone. I was wondering that what work he can have in bank. An hour before he had disconnected my calls. Then he called & said to not to worry as he’ll get the picz.
It was evening & I was watching television and my phone was in the other room in silent mode. Later, when I checked, I saw that I’ve got many missed calls from many numbers. I called to few of them, whichones I knew but no one picked. Then I watzapp an unknown number to my other friend to ask whether she knew it and then she told that it was of one of my classmate and asked me to call her. I called her & she told me that our friend “Achyut Singh” was no more! I was shoked! I was trying to controll my tears and called to my friend who was supposed to be in a bank. I told him about this unfortunate event then he told that he is was not in any bank but actually in “Achyut Singh’s” residence. He met an accident around 2:00 p.m & when taken by the police to hospital was declared death. He was on his new bike & struck a vehicle.He told that he did not wanted to spoil my mood. He told that around half of the school was there to support victim’s family. Everyone had a heavy heart. It was late night by then and I wanted to be a part of his last farewell! But as travelling during late nights are not safe, my friends who were already there didn’t allowed me to come. The next day, newspapers & our principal told that he was not eligible to drive as well as doing rash driving. Many people die because of their carelessness. His parents were actually wrong. They should have not allowed their son to drive as he was only 16years old. (in India, one is eligibel to drive when she has a licence and is above 18 years). And today’s youngsters think doing stunts is cool but it’s not! Its dangerous! It has taken my friend away & I request you to protect you friends by forcing them to obey rules. My friends were there there during his kriya-karam (funeral) and they told me that his face was totally deformed and his eye has popped out from his face. He was the only son and his parents are you going through a great pain. RIP ACHYUT SINGH. Though you were a very naughty kid nearly a devil but losing you is a great loss! Your conference was commendable.. Remember that road rules are important & all rules are not to be broken!! Accidents can happen to you,aswell! I know that it was his mistake but a loss is a loss… Now he is just a number who died on road.. Stay safe!

Know about #Govadhan Pooja Decoration

image

It is the next day of Diwali (main day). This day is celebrated by northern India, mainly amoung the Yadav community or the people living in places which is somehow related to lord Krishna or by those who deeply believe in him! People use cow dung and a sort of a mountain ( resembling a mountain called “Govardhan Parvat”) which is believed to be lifted by lord Krishna to save the people from the wrath of Lord Indra, the demigod in charge of rain. 
It is also called Annakut (meaning  heap of grains) & hence grains are also worshipped!

Know about #diwali2014 + HOW INDIANS REALLY CELEBRATE IT!

image

Ok, now let me tell you what  Diwali really is. So it’s a festival of lights! It symbolises the victroy of light or good over darkness or evil. It is celebrated according to indian lunar calendar. As you might know that Indians are always ready to celebrate. Our celebration is incomplete without prayers and are never ending. And such a combo festival is Diwali. So this festival, like others, is not a one day festival. It starts two days before the main day Diwali (every day has a special name and significance) & ends two days after Diwali.
For further information, contact our big brother “wikipedia” ;)
I was going through different sites and every where they have shown a very formal and sophisticated way of how Indians celebrate Diwali, so I am here to tell you how actually Indian celebrate it-
1) Ok, this fact is something that every Indian school going kid will agree. Before Diwali vacation, every principle of every school gives this warning that no one wil burst crackers in school campus, but still some daring dudes burst crackers which makes the most noise. Like really loud noise, and then i think they are not caught and become Dr. Bruce Banner & if they are caught then they are remembered forever as Hulk!
This is how kids celebrate!
2) You can never celebrate Diwali, without hearing a news that some major accident has taken place in some fhalana cracker making factory.
3) No kid is actually intrested in pooja, they are more intrested in sweets that has to be given after the Diwali pooja.(according to hindu, after every prayer, something, specially sweet is given to others as prasad to eat)
4) People clean and decorate their houses, because it is believed that godess Lakshmi (godess of wealth) comes only in a clean house. People decorate their homes with lights, diyas & clean every corner of their place.

5) Decorating and cleaning is the most traditional way of celebrating diwali but with time people started bursting crackers and gradually it became a custom.

image

But, with the increasing awareness regarding environment, this tradition is limited.
I hope that now you know why it is called a festivel of lights!

6) Diwali is all about shopping! Infact, the first day of Diwali (Dhanteras ) is purely for shopping jewelleries. And on main day, everyone wares new cloths. Girls make a point to be a total a desi girl because boys still like girls in salwar suite!
7) The next day of diwali, newspaper of India is flooded with the news of people who got burnt.
8) Diwali of poor children is actual the next morning of the main night beacuse on the next day they collect diyas and crackrs which still has that ability to burst!
9) Itz all about meeting and vositing our loved ones
So with this, I would like to end this article.
Thnx!
Happy Diwali
