Jai Gurudev !!

"Faith moves the Mountains " is a very popular saying . Jesus has said , " if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. "However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."
Contemplating on these great words , my mind was taken on  a wide tour of numerous instances in our history. If we take the story of Hanuman in Ramayan, the great epic , it's quite amazing to hear his valour and deeds .At one particular point of time, to save Lakshman, Rama's dear brother ,  a herb called Sanjeevani was required and it were to be seen in only the Sanjeevani Hills . Then , Hanuman was asked to bring that herb by Rama  as he was supposed to be the strongest of all  .  And Hanuman  , instantaneously set out on His master's orders .He could not trace out that particular herb, so he decided to lift off the whole hill and carry it to Rama . With the weapon called as mace or Gada in his right hand, he carried the hill in his left hand and flew back to His master without any delay.The people were surprised to see the act of valour by Hanuman.Lakshman was saved , thanks to Hanuman's efforts.

"How could Hanuman do that ?" is a question to ponder . But He had done that as per the purana or history. One thing is very obvious that , it's the *Faith * factor ,which had done the magic. Hanuman is a Great devotee of Rama .

 He is believed to have opened his heart and revealed Ram and Sita , who dwell in His heart. The unshakeable Faith of Hanuman has empowered Him to move the mountain and lift it , no doubt .

Faith has indeed moved the mountain !!
 How aptly has Jesus said it !! 


Love & smiles...

Reality shows and the kids..

Kids on the High Drama  .

Of late , we tune in to any channel , we see the reality shows in varied names hosting kids in an extra ordinary way. Yes, initially it was very interesting , seeing kids performing , dancing like adults , singing or enacting over their age characters, which we have never come across in our day to day life. Ofcourse , we can appreciate for identifying the talents and show casing them in a huge way.

But, as few episode passed by,  very soon , it started giving a feeling of unpleasantness or not good sort , the reason being , something says from inside , "Are these raw fruits being made to ripe  in a much early stage , just like as the raw mangoes & bananas are made to ripe quickly using some harmful chemicals and sold in market ?"   There's also a saying in Tamil , " Pinjuliye pazukka vaikkirathu !'

The new education system policy  is the small kids in schools are devoid of exams & the ranking systems to avoid the peer pressure of competition and to keep them away from stress . But , what's happening here in the TV shows is , the kids are made to perform for the competition sake and pass through public scrutiny, judges' comments , parents pressure etc without their awareness .They are made to work in an environment , where terms like money , TRP rating , the peer pressure , adult talks, relationships & behaviors are more prevalent , which definitely is not in kids dictionary. The impact of this would remain as a lasting impression in the young minds for years to come. The kids lose their precious childhood which comprises of learning things in their own way , playing and enjoying  with the kids of their own age with a carefree attitude and innocent nature .

On watching these programs , the other parents also would aspire to get their kids to similar programs , leading to a great havoc in the future childhood . This needs to be really checked at the right time and awareness has to be brought in the present system. Good to hear  the voices have started raising in the media ..

"Humble request to authorities to urgently ban all reality shows involving children .it's actually destroying them emotionally & their purity. "

The Innocence of the children , which is the greatest gift to the kids by nature needs to be preserved at any cost and the innocence has to get matured , taking its own time and pace in a natural and beautiful manner !! A child has to pass through an adolescent stage to become an adult !! Not bypassing the adolescent stage !!

 Walking the nature's way is very much essential to avoid any untoward incidents and  foster a healthy future generation in the ages to come !!
