MY FIRST LESSON IN HAPPINESS PROJECT


The other day, on a sultry afternoon, I was out to  visit  book-store in the upmarket in South Delhi. The purpose was to spend 2 hour slot to keep myself abreast of latest books in the town especially in my favourite genre - Self Help, Brain Power, Health/ Fitness, Happiness.

When I entered into that basement book-store, I felt the aroma inside soul-lifting. The fragrance of fresh -print-books was enchanting. The air-conditioned bookshop did not tire my legs during my stay when I snaked through the shelfs, sometimes standing  to take a glance of couple of pages of books and some other times bending my back to take a quick look in the bottom racks. For a bibliophile like me, it is like a pilgrimage in the new town which I quite enjoyed.

It is one of the best bookshops I ever found in Delhi with a beautiful ambience. The book lovers instantly find the best-seller list, list of books of Booker Prize winners and Nobel laureates.

I gazed deep into the best sellers in non-fiction category. The book you are seeing in the photo is the one I selected to buy.

' MAKE IN INDIA ' - THE CAMPAIGN THAT COULD CHANGE OUR DESTINY

The roaring lion symbolizes the dominance in the wild world. This majestic animal is always a star campaigner since the era of Ashoka.    

The Lion Capital at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh, India has been adopted as the National Emblem of India on 26th January 1950, the day that India became republic.  We could see  the lion symbol  on our currency notes and coins.

After six decades, again this king of jungle came to limelight.   Prime Minister Narendra Modi started an aggressive campaign today (25th Sept, 2014)  by meeting the Captains of Industry and called upon

MANGALYAAN - THE WORLD'S CHEAPEST MARS MISSION

When the journey you embark is tough and the terrain is rough, teamwork pays dividends.

What the feat our scientific community lead by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) did today on 24th September, 2014 is unbelievable and  a history of sorts.

Space science is so daunting  that even accurate calculations some times turn sore and you must weather all conditions so as to achieve mission objectives  in a time bound action plan.

ISRO scientists for the last five decades have worked hard in developing indigenous technologies for sending satellites with  its home-grown talent. The last mission to Moon : Chandrayaan also did well.

A TALE OF TWO BABY PIGEONS

The other day before my morning coffee was served, my wife brought a news with her elegant smile. It was about one of the daily visitors to the balcony of our home.

In fact, our day starts with watching a flock of birds that come daily on the roof-top opposite to our home, to eat the grains spread by the bird-lovers of Aadarsh Andha Vidhyalay, a special school-cum-hostel for visually-challenged children which is a stone's throw from our 3rd floor apartment in the bustling South Delhi.

MANDOLIN MAESTRO


Writing gives a solace to an aching heart. It slowly evaporates the trauma bit by bit.

Whenever, any of my near and dear ones or even a celebrity known to me completes his or her earthly sojourn, it reminds   me  that "I am a mortal and one day it will be my turn'.  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi rightly said in his interactions with children on Teachers Day (5th September,2014)  that parents should not openly aspire before children what they should become in their lives. What they should do is  to strengthen the children's resolve to do something and in that doing, they become something, like in the case of this brilliant instrumentalist.

MULTIPLE ROLES FOR MOBILE PHONE !

Recently, I bought a mobile phone which is a gadget with cutting edge technology.    Myself being technology enthusiast always keeps updated on the technology front to make  my life exuberant in this modern age.

A smartphone these days is  one stop solution for all your entertainment, edutainment and personal care needs.  One needs to gauge on daily basis whether or not he or she is fully experiencing all its features.  When you carry it with you as an extended organ, you need to utilize the phone fully other than a talking-piece.

IS IT A CHEATERS WORLD ?

The more people rationalize cheating, the more it becomes a culture of dishonesty.  And that can become a vicious, downward cycle.
                          -  Stephen Covey

The other day, I went to India's biggest Electronic / IT market hub called Nehru Place Market which is just 2  Metro stations away from my residence in South Delhi.   Known for its notoriety in price juggling depending upon the awareness of customers, fairness seems to be a dear commodity in this electronic market.

Reputed as visitors paradise for all latest gizmos, gadgets, Nehru Place Market in Delhi turns you into tech junkie instantly.   One website depicting the market says that you should be careful enough before you procure the items by inspecting the essential factors like model, genuineness, specifications and warranty.

BE PART OF ELECTORAL PROCESS !

To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.
                                                                              Louis L'Amour

In the 2013 elections conducted for State Assembly of NCT of Delhi, the percentage of votes polled is 65.63 %.

It means, around 34 % of Delhi's eligible voters did not cast their votes which is a disturbing trend and needs to set right with responsible behaviour.

STENOGRAPHER : THE SPECIES UNDER THREAT OF EXTINCTION

The strokes you write hasten your hand. The fingers ride with speaker’s words. It is a perfect symphony of hand and head, an art  which you could master and  chisel  to perfection.

There was a time when the profession of stenographer is considered as middle-class’s breadwinner. It’s charm in 1990’s is something you can’t find  in this Information Age.  The government sector is still the main  stakeholder of stenographers. But no doubt, it is becoming a dying profession and I doubt its survival in the coming decades as technology replaces maximum human labour.
