Happy birthday to birthday boy DhiruBhai Ambani Ji alias business 'Chanakaya' of 21st Century!

Wealth in the form of Cement and Concrete (or any other 'materialistic' form for that matter!) will vanish by wars or nature's disasters like tsunami, earthquake, floods etc.

But,

Wealth that is built of love-filled service to the society or nation (or to the universe in general) cannot be displaced or destroyed by wars or any form of nature's disasters.

A Mathematical Genius alias Math Mahan!


<<....
....
All the students were surprised as to how an ordinary student who had come to Cambridge in England to study from British India dared to find fault with the mathematics of a British Professor of Mathematics Arthur Berry? Berry, who had closely watched the expression on the face of Ramanujan, asked Ramanujan: "It will be good if you can come here to the Black Board to show exactly what I have gone wrong!". As Ramanujan immediately got up from his seat and walked straight to the Black Board from his seat, all other students in the class, clapped rhythmically to the gait of Ramanujan and whistling at the same time heckled with: "Mister Jam! Mister Genius! Indian 'Duck' in Thames River!"

Fear of Doggies!? Here is a Remedy:)

Several of us have fear of doggies.

Our hero found one creative (dancing) way(instantaneously spontaneous or spontaneously instantaneous:)) to escape from dogs.

If the dog has dance sense, it will allow you to go or it may run away from you:)

Enjoy the comedy clip:)

****

The above comedy scene is from a telugu movie entitled 'Subhalekha'.
It is one of the movies of my interest for several reasons. One good reason is the movie strongly discourages dowry system which is still existing(most unfortunate!) in our society. There are some awesome characters in the movie to fight against dowry system

A must watch(at least once!) movie.

Want to know more about my most favorite director in Telugu cinema!?

Surya Namaskara

Sun Salutation

Praying the SUN GOD and performing Surya namaskaras is so beneficial for health.
This is highly recommended for students and children.

When I was in Hyderabad (June 2003 to June 2005), our house owner, a grand 'mighty' oldman Sri Visweswara Rao(much like a grandfather) suggested me to perform Surya namaskaras everyday.

Kinldy do not see just the religious flavor,see the multi-benefits for better living.

Jai Chiranjeeva Jagadeka Veera..!
Song dedicated to Sri Hanuman devotees.

Sung by 'Chiranjeevi' Bhuvana Kruthi.
Excellent Talli!!.You have awesome voice.GOD bless you.

Judges: Music directors Koti garu,Ramana Gogula garu &
Popular singer Smt.S.P.Sailaja garu(V.V.S SPB's sister)

Anchor:Indian Idol 2 N.C.Karunya

Bache Bhagwan!

The following song is one of my most favorites and it conveys(essentially) the following:

A Newly born baby's heart is always open and GOD lives there(with infinite degrees of freedom).It's mind has an in-built OS without any virus.

Child's character is filled-with innocence,honesty,purity,love..etc.

Once the baby grows up, so-called 'materialistic' world start 'doping' the heart and mind with 'great' bad qualities(impurities)
viz., jealously,hatredness,ego,anger..etc.

As cloud fades the sunlight, our intelligence is often faded by anger.

Always control your senses(say,for instance, anger) and act towards developing friendly atmosphere.To err is human and to forgive is Divine!

Gradually,as time goes on, GOD disappears(and stay far away in space) from the heart of the grown-up child.This might be the reason(!) why people say
'Uperwala' knows everything!

Preserving that naturally beautiful(or beautifully natural) character thoughout the life is one of the biggest challenges.

Hope you also like the song:)

Life: A random experiment!

A 'Probability' Perspective.

Life is a random experiment.

- make decisions with insufficient (and sometimes inaccurate!) data

- get the work done with inadequate (and also not so smart) tools

- compromise and accept with less that 100 percent success (or failure:))

- quest for certainty in uncertainty, simplicity in complexity or vice versa

In life, We frequently burst with smiles and laughs for several jokes and enjoy the humour from human brains.
But, life is not a JOKE!

A 'Devotional' Way to Quit Unhealthy Habits!

A 'Devotional' Way to quit Unhealthy Habits!

Devotion is a vital part of Indian culture.This has its roots in the form of customs and traditions of different religions(~flowers) of Mother INDIA.

If there are thousand ways to do bad things, there are thousand and one ways to do good things!

The additional one way is the one transforming all bad ways to good ways.

Devotional way(of 'any' religion) is one of the best ways to quit unhealthy habits.

The above has been witnessing by me since my childhood.

So many people from different states of south India take up Mandala Deeksha(a forty day deeksha) and visit Sabari Mala(Sabari hill of Kerala) God Ayyappa(or Ayyappan).

During Deeksha, every devotee should follow the rules and regulations (like taking bathe with cold water,eating only vegetarian food,sleeping on floor,offering prayers to the almighty daily basis..so on.).

At the end of the deeksha, those who have bad habits earlier, gain mental strength to quit their unhealthy habits.

'Makara Sankranti' is the most auspicious day for Lord Ayyappan.And devotees show great interest to visit the temple and see 'Makara Jyothi' on that day.

"Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa!"



The following devotional videos on Ayyappa, describe the above in detail.

Indian 'Marriage' Culture



Several foreign countries, (mostly) differentiate India from other countries by culture and fine arts viz., The Vedas, The Upanishads, Epics like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Mahabhagavata,Bhagavad Gita, Classical music, Dance,Ayurveda..so on.

Undoubtedly, Marriage is one of the most important and traditional aspects of our culture.
One can write an encyclopedia on Indian(of different religions and regions) marriages.

I like to share some views on marriage-culture in a Hindu-perspective.

* Several decades back, marriage was a 5-day grand event.

Analogous to the 5-year plan in Indian economy, people(bride and bridegroom parents and relatives)
used to make 5-day plan that comprises of several simple events(do not ask me the probabilities!:))
viz., competitions(village-cultural), musical nights (traditional, like Hari Katha,Burra Katha, classical dances etc.,).

Amazing food(Vivaha Bhojanambu:)) preparations(food department plays a vital role to attract crowd:)).

* The core part of the marriage event is, the (Veda) mantras chanted by the priest(The core-event
manager/screen play-direction department).In general, they used to chant mantras for hours during several 'small' sub-events of the core event. People believe that those mantras are so powerful and will make the relationship between the Hero(beautifully decorated Bridegroom-God) and the Heroine(beautifully decorated Bride-Goddess)
so strong.

For decorating the leads(I mean the bride and the bridegroom), several garlands,flowers,chandan,turmeric..etc. are used.

* Some role model couples are:
Sita(or Janaki) & Sri Rama
Parvathi & Parameshwara
Rukmini & Sri Krishna

Marriages of the above couples were beautifully described by great Poets(and Rishis) like Valmiki,
Kalidasa and Veda Vyasa.

The following is a four-and half minute video song that describes the marriage of Goddess Sita and God Sri Rama.The song is so popular in AP to so much extent that, hardly people find marriage video without it.In other words,the probability that finding a Telugu-marriage event without this song is very close to zero.

INDIA GOT TALENT

Story of Archana Kumari

Archana Kumari comes from a small village in one of the poorest and most deprived areas of India, Muzaffarpur district in north Bihar. At age 14, she left school and began earning a pittance doing the traditional sujni embroidery of the area. At age 17, her creative skills came to the notice of a local NGO, Adithi, and a Canadian textile expert, Dr Skye Morrison, who together sent her to NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) on a scholarship.

Despite being handicapped by her lack of English and other academic skills, Archana regularly topped her class at NIFT, won a prize for the Best Design Collection of her year, and has been accepted at NIFT for further studies on her own merit. She says her hand skills and experience of working hands-on in craft have given her an edge over the other students. Her one regret is that the local school did not give her and other children the early grounding that would have empowered them to be both craftswomen and entrepreneurs.

****

The existence of unique living craft skills, techniques,
designs, and products is India’s great strength, leading to career
opportunities at all levels, not a weakness. This point needs to be
emphasized in the school curriculum, and craft should be taught
as an area of professional expertise rather than as a ‘hobby’.

To those of us now looking at the new millennium and
seeking new directions for India, the potential of crafts and
craftspeople is something to which younger generations should be
sensitized.

“We may be wage earners but we are still walking on someone else’s feet. Because we lack the tools of education and language, we are still dependent.” - Shiva Kashyap, Madhubani Craftswoman, Bihar

I want to include one more name, a Gifted Bharatha Natyam dancer.She is so special(M^4) dancer because of her unlimited determination and unbounded dedication.

Her name is Sudha Chandran.

Green School !

GREEN SCHOOL BUILDING ATTRIBUTES THAT WOULD SUPPORT
HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT

After evaluating the research literature, the committee concluded that a green school
with the following attributes would support student and teacher health, learning, and
productivity:

Dryness: Excessive moisture, which has been associated with adverse health
effects, particularly asthma and respiratory diseases, is not present.

Good indoor air quality and thermal comfort: Ventilation rates, air pollutants,humidity levels, and temperature ranges, which have been linked to human health,learning, and productivity, are effectively controlled.

Quietness: The acoustical quality, which has been shown to affect student learning and the development of language skills, meets the newly released standard 12.60 “Acoustical Performance Criteria, Design Requirements, and Guidelines for Schools” of the American National Standards Institute.

Well-maintained Systems: Building systems are commissioned to ensure that they perform as intended, and their performance is monitored over time. Routine preventive maintenance is implemented throughout a school’s service life.

Cleanliness: Surfaces are disinfected to interrupt the transmission of infectious
diseases, and measures are implemented to help control indoor pollutants that
have been associated with asthma and other respiratory diseases.

Additional green school attributes that should be aspired to include durability,
increased acoustical quality for more sensitive groups, and improved cleaning practices to
prevent the accumulation of allergens and irritants.

I found an answer when i started cooking during my stay(Jun2007-Dec2008) in Navi-Mumbai.

The answer is the following:

'Love-filled' "waters" matters!!

****
Not convinced!!?

Q1. How much is the percentage of water on earth?
ans.Water covers 70.9% of the Earth's surface.

Q2. How much is the percentage of water in human body?
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_water)
ans.60% -70%

****

The words we speak, the feelings and the intentions we have, can be well captured by water!
Accordingly, the water will get transformed into higher or lower life-energy.
The above is proved scientifically by a Japan scientist Dr.Masaru Emoto by using
a highly sophisticated and powerful camera(!).

He found the following:
when water is placed in a pleasant and love-filled environment,
water molecule structures are found to be in beautiful(flower-like) shapes.(see fig.)



On the other hand, water that is placed in unpleasant environment found to be ...?(fill-up the blanks)

"Add love to cooking for energy and taste!"

The above is applicable to, not just water, but to humans in general.(obvious!!just look at the questions at the beginning.)

Dance '4' health!

Indian Classical Dance offers
Physical,
Intellectual,
Spiritual, &
Emotional health.

Education should be associated with Indian culture & fine arts.

Like Yoga, Dance is a boon to mankind.

The science of (Indian classical) dance, which is much like Yoga, is based on
the fundamental principles of life, viz., the five elements

- Aakash(sky/space)
- vayu(air)
- agni(fire)
- jal(water)
- prithvi(earth)

The human structure is a miniature form of universe and composed of the five
ingredients.

The secret of good health depends on the balance of the elements within the body
and the imbalance in these five elements causes diseases of the body and mind.

Indian classical dance
- create peace and strength.
- eliminate fatigue and anxiety.
- promote physical and mental health.
- relieve stress,depression and anger.
- calm the mind, sharpen the intellect, and promote love, happiness, prosperity and longevity.

The words of our First PM

“The service of India means the
service of the millions who suffer.
It means the ending of poverty
and ignorance and disease and
inequality of opportunity. The
ambition of the greatest man of our
generation has been to wipe every
tear from every eye. That may be
beyond us, but as long as there are
tears and suffering so long our
work will not be over.”

-Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru
"tryst with destiny" speech.

జాబిలమ్మ

కార్తిక పున్నమి న
నిండు వెలుగు జిలుగుల సొబగులతో
మా మదిని దోచినావు
మైమరపించి మురిపించి వెళ్ళావు
ఓ జాబిలమ్మ!

Lyrics (with meaning)

Thumpi va thumpakkudathin
Thunjathayi oonjalidam
Aakasha ponnalin ilakalil
Ayathil thotte varam
La..la..la..la..la..
(thumpi)
manthrathal paayunna kuthiraye
manikya kayyal thodam
gandharvvan padunna mathilakam
mandharam poovitta thanalil
oonjaale padaamoo
manathe mamante thalikayil
maamunnan pokaamo namukkini
(thumpi)
pandathe pattinte varikal
chundathe thenthulliyay
kalkkanda kunninte mukalil
kakkathi meyunna thanalil
oonjalee padippo
aa kayyilee kayyiloru pidi
kaikkatha nellikka mani tharoo
(thumpi)

http://www.malayalasangeetham.info/php/SongDetails.php?sid=6318&encode=utf

Come Dragonfly to thumpakkudathin(i dont know the meaning, "Somewhere")
Near that place we will built a swing
Sky's leaves(ie clouds)
We will touch it deep and come

La..la..la..la..la..
(thumpi)

A Horse that runs with magic
We will touch with golden(manikya, i think) hands
The place where an angel(gandharvvan, not exactly) sing
The flower-filled shade of a flowering tree
Swing, can you sing?
In Uncle sky's food Plate
Can we go for eating lunch?
(thumpi)
The Lines of an old song,
Becomes like a Honey-drop in lips.
On top of a mountain of Big Sugar crystals
In the shade of some person(kakkathi) doing some work(meyunna, i am not sure)
Swing, sing along.
In your hand, one handful of
Unripe amla fruit, please give.
(thumpi)
