पानी हूँ पानी रहने दो

Featured
कितना शीतल, कितना निर्मल
हिमगिरि के हिम से निकल निकल,
यह निर्मल दूध सा हिम का जल,
कर-कर निनाद कल-कल छल-छल,
तन का चंचल मन का विह्वल
यह लघु सरिता का बहता जल
-गोपाल सिंह नेपाली
जीवन के अस्तित्व के लिए जिस प्रकार हवा का होना बेहद आवश्यक है उसी प्रकार जल भी जीवन का अति आवश्यक हिस्सा है. जल के बिना जीवन अकल्पनीय है.
हम अपने जीवन में प्रतिदिन जल का प्रयोग करते हैं, लेकिन कभी उसकी महत्ता और अमूल्यता पर तनिक भी विचार नहीं करते. यह बात आपको अजीब लग सकती है किंतु सच्चाई से मुंह तो नहीं मोड़ा जा सकता. सुबह जगने से लेकर रात में सोने तक, हमारी दिनचर्या का एक अनिवार्य हिस्सा है जल. जैसे- खाना बनाना, पीना, कपड़े साफ़ करना, हाथ-पैर साफ़ करना आदि-आदि. एक कल्पना करिए कि अगर आपको खाने के बाद पीने को पानी न मिले तो कैसा महसूस होगा. धूल-मिट्टी से सने पैरों को धोने के लिए उचित मात्रा में जल उपलब्ध न हो तो क्या होगा!
ये तो हुई अनिवार्य दिनचर्या की बात. इसके अलावा हमारी एक और आदत है जो यकीनन बुरी है. इस बारे में हम कभी सोचते तक नहीं. वह आदत है पानी की महत्ता को भूलकर पानी का दुरूपयोग. हम हर रोज नहाते समय, ब्रश करते समय, हाथ धोते समय पानी को बेमतलब बहा रहे होते हैं लेकिन हमें इसका तनिक भी भान नहीं होता. बेकार में नल खुला छोड़ देने से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में हमने शायद ही कभी सोचा होगा! मैं हमेशा अपने आस-पास ऐसी परिस्थिति देखकर विचलित हो जाता हूँ.
बचपन में, जब भी मुझसे कोई गलती होती थी, मेरे पिताजी गुस्से में सवाल करते थे, ‘क्या पढ़ते हो?’ मैं अकेले में सोचता था कि इस गलती में मेरे विषयों का क्या गुनाह है? अब जाकर मेरी समझ में आया है कि उनका मकसद यह जानना होता था कि पढ़ाई से मैंने क्या सीख ली है. पढ़ाई का मतलब केवल विषयों का ज्ञान भर नहीं होता, बल्कि इसका मकसद हमारी सोचने-विचारने की क्षमता का विकास करना होता है. शिक्षा से हम मानवता की ओर आकृष्ट होते हैं.
ईश्वर ने हमें अमूल्य जल दिया है. अपने जीवन के साथ-साथ इस धरती की सलामती इसी में है कि हम जल संरक्षण के लिए अपने प्रयास तेज करें और हर छोटे प्रयास से इस बड़े यज्ञ में अपना योगदान दें.

People from Delhi NCR can also celebrate super by initiating the initiative to give. If you have something extra, give it to someone in need. Your single effort can bring a big balance in the world and you can bring home a big pack of smiles. It will be with you for your whole life.

How A cat helped me get rid of my old phone #CleanUpCashOut

The world is turning smart at the speed of per second. Smart age has arrived on the back of digital revolution. Almost every day, New devices are introduced and the old one feels ashamed of its features. To be on the boat of change, you need to be expert in replacing your old devices with the same speed.

I was not so. And, hence faced a full year of frustration, anger and sorrow.
I had bought a Nokia smartphone 5 years ago. At that time, VGA camera and music player inside the mobile was considered a high-class phone. It was very expensive too. It was worth so.

After two and half years, my phone was turning gradually into an outdated one. I was watching people around me buying Smartphones having the features of the Digital camera, mobile TVs and a lot. Every time I saw a friend of mine owning a phone of the new age, I used to think and rethink again and again. Should I say goodbye to my old phone? Oh! It was much worthier than the new ones. 
Should I gift it to my relatives? They might gift me a new smartphone in return. That’s a great idea.

I was sure. It was my uncle’s birthday. My birthday was a week later after him. I planned to gift my old phone in new covers. I thought uncle would become happy and he might gift a new age smartphone to me on my upcoming birthday.

I packed my old phone in a new bright cover and decorated the gift very well and handed over to him on his birthday. I saw him smiling while I gave away the gift.
Next Saturday was my turn to receive. I was sure to receive the surprise. Dreams of the new smartphone were not letting me sleep pleasantly. I was making myself prepared to handle the happiness I was going to achieve.
I would do so and so and so from my new smartphone. And the series of emotions marked the morning of my birthday.

The time and uncle came to my house for the birthday party. He wished me but I saw him empty. I became sad. Then I saw the uncle taking out a gift box from his bag. I, however, shadowed my smile. He handed over the box to me. It was very difficult to kill that gap. I was never in the Birthday celebration.

As the party ended, I ran to feel the smartphone. I was sure about that. Yes! I screamed. It was a phone inside the box.

But it was not the new one. It was the same one I had gifted the uncle last week. Along with the phone, There was a five-hundred rupees note and a paper sheet. ‘I am however your uncle, my child!’, was written on the paper. I understood the whole matter. No one was ready to own my old phone. It was so outdated.

Next, I tried to left the phone in a taxi. And said to the family that the phone was stolen. I thought, now they will bring me a new smartphone. They were ready too. Next morning, Doorbell rang. There was a taxi driver who had come to my home to handover the same phone I had left in his taxi.

I asked my friends, posted ads on selling websites, but no one was ready to buy or even take it for free. It was so frustrating.

But it is well-known fact that every dog has its day, mine too.
One day, A cat was trying to enter in the kitchen. Mom was busy, So she asked me to save the milk. I went there in no mood. Suddenly, the cat tried to jump into the kitchen and I threw the phone at the cat. The cat and the phone, both were gone.

Mom was happy to see the milk being saved and I was happy to see the new phone coming. Mom was so happy about the milk that she requested Dad to bring me a new age smartphone. 
And, That was the beginning of a new era to me.

It is 2017. You do not need to worry about replacing your old gadgets in this era. cashify has come to short out all your worries. Now sell your gadgets on Cashify without thinking twice and get your dreams turn true. So this Diwali #CleanUpCashOut with Cashify.

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback

 

Impacts of clean India campaign

“To take a big step, one need a small step in the beginning.”

I had to travel from Varanasi to my home by train. Train was late, So I decided to walk along the platform.
I was surprised to see that there was very very less amount of dirt and debris on its floor in comparison to 5-6 months back. There was regular cleaning done on the platforms. People were throwing the waste at suitable places but not here and there.

You will say what is surprising about this? Could cleaning be a surprise? Yes I know, It’s just a regular practice and the behavior of a common people.
But, It was not practiced outside our houses. People try to keep clean their own houses but not of others. Now, People are joining and co-ordinating their hands and making the impact.
It is surprising because 5 or 6 months before, the scene was totally different. Platforms were just like a house of dirt and debris.

Whether It’s used plastic bottles or wastewater or wasted papers, all was there to malign the beauty of  the platform, the junction as well as the city.

Criticism is done at large scale against the Clean India Campaign. People ask about its impact.
I would say that Clean India Campaign has been changing the traditional mindset of people.

What changes I have seen after the launch of Clean India campaign by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 02nd of October, 2014, I have witnessed some smaller but very necessary changes in people’s mind as well as at the ground level.

IMPACTS OF CLEAN INDIA CAMPAIGN:-

1. People search for dustbin to throw waste

In earlier time, It was common that people were used to dump waste outside the dustbin. It was familiar to witness the littering anywhere on the road in a large amount.
But now, People dump waste at right place and if they do not find the dustbin, they ask from the people for that.

2. Young minds and hands are changing the scenario

Varanasi or Banaras or Kashi is the spiritual capital of India. Banaras is well-known as the city of streets, Ghats and temples.
Politically, Varanasi is also the parliamentary seat of PM Narendra Modi.

Two young ladies, Temsutula Imsong and Darshika Shah with their team started a initiative “Mission Prabhughat” to clean Ghats of the Banaras. At first, People tried to ignore as well as criticize for their work.
But, when there efforts began to change the scene, people began to join their hands to make the building.
PM himself praised their effort on his twitter account.

3. India can really change

‘INDIA CAN CHANGE’, It was just a slogan. But efforts and changes in Clean India campaign has shown as well as regularly changing people’s traditional mindset.

It is just an example of change what I have been witnessing. There are a lot to come, join and make a clean country.

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can  apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.

Turning good into gold

A gold morning is the combination of unpredictable happiness and refreshing energy. If your morning is good, your day will certainly turn out better. And, a better day makes your life beautiful and happier than before.

To start a day and the busy professional routine, we require a energy backup for whole day, that backup comes from the morning, I must say.

I am an undergraduate student and the necessity of consistent energy and refreshment is well known as well as well-required to me. Continued 6 hours of classes a day can easily make a person badly tired. Besides all, I have to pay much attention on my studies too and that also requires continued energy flow and refreshment in my body. Therefore, I know how a good morning can provide me all that is the required to my body.

My mantra to turn good mornings into gold mornings are very simple and common. Anyone willing to make their morning gold and the day beautiful can easily do it.

Early to rise

To enjoy a morning, you must wake up in the morning. I try to rise in the morning by latest 5 am. At that time, Sun is about to publish its rays in the sky. The whole surroundings looks clear and give me feeling of eternal peace.

Refreshment

Toothbrushing is a very important task. You have to meet people, speak with them and interact with them daily. Your face and tooth tells your impression on the person in front of you.
I always use colgate toothpaste and toothbrushes for cleaning of my mouth. It keeps me refreshed for whole day and I can easily interact with any person.

Watching sunrise on Ghats

I live in the city of Banaras, the spiritual capital of India. It is the city older than history. Banaras is situated on the banks of river Ganges and Ghats on the bank of the river are famous all over the world for its historical importance and scenic beauty.

Watching the Sun rising and making a golden road on the surface of the river is just an immortal memory. I regularly go to Ghats in the morning to enjoy the scene.

Traditional Breakfasts

It is said that you cannot even worship without food. Then, A morning without food is not possible.
Traditional breakfast of Banaras is Puri, Sabji and Jalebi. You can easily find it anywhere in the Banaras in the morning. It is just tastier than anything else. It has played an important role in turning good mornings into gold mornings.

That is how I turn my good morning into gold morning.
It’s my mantra, What’s yours?

Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold toothbrush , has been specially designed to make your mouth clean and your morning gold.

It’s a gold morning

“A gold morning is not golden in color but turns a day into gold.”

A new day inspire us to take new resolutions and do our best to complete them. Resolutions are the reasons to go ahead in life and not be stable in the earlier state.

What decides how your day will pass today? How will you take care of your resolutions? And, What decides your rest of the day?
Guessing…..  yes! You are right, It’s the sweet Morning that is the decider of your day. Your whole day depends upon your morning, To make your day beautiful, you need to make your morning beautiful.
For getting refreshed and make their morning and day super, Some love to walk in the morning, some go to gym, some love to eat their favorite breakfast, some find their happy morning in newspaper and a lot.
You cannot find the taste of gold morning if you sleep till 10’o clock in the day.

For me, There are a number of things that turn my good morning into Gold. I love these things from core of my heart and I wish it might happen till my life.

I live in the spiritual capital of India, in the city of Banaras. In the hostel of university, I usually wake up at 5’o clock in the morning. After that, The act of refreshment starts. After refreshment, my morning walk starts from my hostel. It ends up to the Ghats on the banks of river Ganges.

Watching सुबह-ए-बनारस

It’s a morning musical program that is performed daily at the famous ASSI Ghat of Banaras. Every morning starts with Ganga Arti and then musical exercise. The combination of both is really amazing and It provide viewers eternal joy.
It’s a landmark of gold morning for me.

Lovely scenary of Sunrise

While sitting on river’s bank, you can watch the red spherical Sun rising from the east. Watching sunrise is always a joyful practice, but experiencing Sunrise on river’s bank is just unforgettable.
It looks alike a road of gold has been made on the surface of the water to welcome the new morning.
Watching sunrise is beautiful experience as well as an energetic exercise too.
The rising sun also inspires me to start up our day with more power and dedication.

Delicious breakfasts

A good morning is quite colorless without good breakfasts.
It is said that good food is the reason of good behavior.

After returning from the bank of river Ganges to my hostel, I prefer to eat famous Banarasi breakfast of Puri, Sabji and Jalebi. A sip of sweet tea after the breakfast makes it more beautiful.
The immortal taste of the traditional breakfast make my morning more amazing and I find myself ready to start my day with new energy, frest thinking and new enthusiasm.

(Puri, Sabji and Jalebi….It’s mouth-watering)

These are the things that make my morning golden, What are yours?
