Having children undoubtedly gives us immense pleasure, but it also gives a chance to become a selfless person. Parenting is all about loving the kids unconditionally, giving them a part of wisdom, experiences, wealth, affection, moral support one has earned in years and don’t expect a single favor for doing everything one can.

કુપોષણ કે અતિપોષણ – મધ્યમ વર્ગની સમસ્યા! 2.3 (8)

પોતાનાં કે બાળકનાં ભવિષ્યની ચિંતા કરી સંપત્તિ અર્જિત કરી, સંગ્રહ કરતી વખતે આપણે મોટેભાગે ભૂલી જઈએ છીએ કે સ્વાસ્થ્યથી વિશેષ કોઈ જ સંપત્તિ નથી. ભવિષ્યમાં દવાઓ આપણો ખોરાક બને તે પહેલા સાચો ખોરાક આપણા માટે દવાનું કામ કરે એ જરૂરી છે. સારો ખોરાક, સારી ટેવો, સારી સોબત, સારા વિચાર અને સરસ ઊંઘ બસ આ જ તો છે સ્વસ્થ જીવનનાં પગથિયાં!

સાંપ્રત સમસ્યા – કુપોષણ (health and fitness essay) 2.5 (4)

જૂની કહેવત છે કે, ‘પહેલું સુખ તે જાતે નર્યા’ તો, આ નર્યા એટલે કે સાજા-નરવા રહેવા માટેની મૂળભૂત જરૂરિયાત છે ખોરાક. અને એ પણ માત્ર ખોરાક નહીં પરંતુ પોષણક્ષમ ખોરાક! આપણે જે ખાઈએ છીએ એ આપણા સ્વભાવ, આચાર-વિચાર માં પ્રસ્તુત થાય છે. ભારત એક વિશાળ દેશ તરીકે પોષણના મામલે ક્યાં છે તેની ખુબ સચોટ માહિતી સાથે, કારણોની પણ ખુબ સ્વસ્થ રીતે છણાવટ કરતો આ લેખ વાંચીએ… આ જ મુદ્દે આંકડાઓમાં રસ પડતો હોય તો, ભારતનાં પોષણ-કુપોષણ સંબધિત રીપોર્ટસ આવું કંઇક કહે છે.

શ્રી કૃષ્ણ – એક સર્વોત્તમ નાયક 3.7 (13)

ॐ નમો ભગવતે વાસુદેવાય| આ દ્વાદશાક્ષર મંત્ર (કે જેમાં બાર અક્ષરો છે તે) મુક્તિ મંત્ર તરીકે પણ ઓળખાય છે. તેને મોક્ષ પ્રાપ્તિ માટેનું પ્રમુખ સૂત્ર પણ કહેવામાં આવે છે. તેનો અર્થ છે કે, ‘હું વાસુદેવ કૃષ્ણ સમક્ષ સંપૂર્ણ શરણાગતિ સ્વીકારું છું.’ અને ભગવાન કૃષ્ણ તેમનાં દરેક ભક્તને હૈયાધારણ આપે છે કે, જે કોઈ પણ તેમનું સ્મરણ કરશે તેઓ સદૈવ તેની સાથે ઉભા રહેશે.

Feminism – An illusion, untruth, fantasy or a myth? 3 (6)

Feminism has been the biggest hoax of the century! Nature has made males and females to represent the body and the soul respectively. But, if feminism is about liberation and equal rights then the whole society including males and females must be considerate about it. It has nothing to do with who’s stronger or who’s worth dominating. Writer has expressed here his take on what he thinks about the idea of FEMINISM!

વિજયાદશમી – A Gujarati Poetry 5 (2)

તહેવારો ઉજવવા એ આનંદ નો વિષય છે પરંતુ, એ તહેવારો પાછળનાં કારણ જાણીને ઉજવણી કરીએ, ત્યારે એ આનંદ સાર્થક થઇ બેવડાઈ જાય છે. સનાતન ધર્મએ જીવનને સમૃદ્ધ બનાવવા માટે ઘણું આપ્યું છે. રામાયણ પણ એ જ્ઞાનસાગરનું જ એક અણમોલ મોતી છે. વાંચો, માણો અને આનંદો!

We humans are not things to be displayed so, outer adornment doesn’t serve the purpose wholly. For us, feeling the way we want to be looked as is more important. It’s an era of commercialization yet the basics remain the same for any place in the world you can think of. It’s all about feeling good at the end of the day!

06. Connect – Good relationships make us happier and healthier. 4 (5)

Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Invisible threads are the strongest ties!” Our relationships are just like those invisible threads. We don’t know how a person will influence our life, but when we’re connected to people, we are definitely going to get something that would add up to the experience called LIFE!

04. Wait for the right time! 0 (0)

Sometimes tracing the pace, breaks our harmony with the Nature. And haste takes away the charm and amazement. While living, waiting never means to be dormant or to be inert, but it’s about being tranquil and stable for sure.

03. Allow your inner voice to speak. 0 (0)

Allowing yourself to make mistakes, to take risks or to choose a wrong path is totally a human thing to do. It enhances the possibilities for correction, to succeed and to return. Willingness is the only condition.

Believing in something gives you a kind of inner strength. You believe in good, you become better! And as I have said earlier, acceptance follows the belief indiscriminately.
