ONE WORLD FAMILY

HOW NAME ASSOCIATES AND DIFFERENTIATE US ON RELIGIOUS BARRIER AND DIVIDES US WITH ALL THE OTHER CATEGORIES AS WE ARE NOT HUMANS BUT HUMAN SPECIES LIKE ANIMALS,

im 2
As we grow in harmony and brotherhood subsequently with the time we starts or the society starts defining us on various line, our name is asked when name comes there is lot that starts to build around us to which I can say the lines or barriers or boundaries, our name doesn’t carry our identity alone but the things attached to it they do carry the religion, the caste, the sub caste, creed, gender, or believes faith, book religious practices related to particular religion etc. This is the time when we learn that world is not what we used to perceive as in childhood sharing food in same plate, drinking ‘jhoota pani’ sharing same water, the other thing that is associated with name is our class, economic status, and it teaches how we are different from others and how to or not to associate and with whom and when all this covers us and nature and a particular personality starts coming up or build up.

With different perspectives of being superior or inferior from others how to contribute in society does that contribution pays us something or not. Thus childhood fragile and open minded kid is captured in this trap of self-esteem, ego, differentiation, leaving all the class room moral stories and brotherhood, sharing all this lag behind and we become a person with identity and ideology which further plays a role in our ego development if ideology doesn’t matches to ours own then the other person is being judged and so it become a process.
Today we are busy judging each other on the baseless reasons whether religion, cast, beliefs, eating habits’ dressing, physical appearance etc but we are judging no matter what, in what way, Society is standing parted, The base of humanity is left behind somewhere which was the first thing sent to us by our creator, Humbleness’, forgiving, accepting the way other is, spirituality.

Instead of finding and tagging anyone on their religious count do we ever try to find his/her spiritual aspect, humanitarian aspect?
Carry all religious book and see what they hold is …………

‘Failure’ is not the last key to unsuccessful Life.

Do remember failure is the key to success do not lose hope-‘Hold the key to door till it doesn’t gets unlock ‘Every performer has his own place on a stage; it is set just mark your place’ and identify the best suited role you can play.

‘Failure’ is not the last key to unsuccessful Life.

 

Career Plan this is the high time when schools and colleges are busy with admissions, and students and parents busy dealing with the overall stress, of their kids previous examination performance and of the upcoming competition’s and the related stressors and overall scenario whether it is the monetary fixation and deciding upon what educational stream their kids should opt for from my past experience as a counselor.

I have  found that most of the students are primarily  confused about the course or program me  they want to make their career in, second thing that they face  immense pressure of their parents, friends relatives etc.

Peer pressure is commonly found factor among the youngster to opt the same as their friends are opting, although the point to ponder on is our interest, the understanding knowledge of a particular subject, retaining power of brain the capacity and capability to perform in a particular course.

Every Program is differently designed and so is the understanding power of the students. The stressors to opt a program even after knowing the performance of their kid’s parents insist due to societal stigma of having their kids to be seen as doctors and engineers.

This is 21st century use the resource of well being around you, study about various subjects, the openings related, arrange meetings with counselors, talk to parents, but do not only buy a subject because of its market value, first evaluate yourself, All you have to do is you have to do it no one else select a program according to your performance level and believe me every subject has its own place and everyone can do wonders in life.

Identify your problems

Primarily identification and interpretation of stressors, secondly analysis the available resources that can help you to get out of the situations, then to cop up with the stress factors, as at every stage of life we have to perform there is no escapism to live life. Situations those are not favorable acts as an stressor and generates the feeling of fear anxiety, effecting the performance. Identify your fear factors analysis and talk about them, these days communication gap between parents and children is wider and thus it is a major factor.

Do remember failure is the key to success do not lose hope-‘Hold the key to door till it doesn’t gets unlock ‘Every performer has his own place on a stage; it is set just mark your place’ and identify the best suited role you can play.

Atmano Mokshartham Jagat Hitaya Cha

Humanity is the base line in all Religions but irony the reason of unconditional inhuman behaviour has lead us not to observe this simple base line, instead the world is at war on Religions only.

Atmano mokshartham jagat hitaya cha — “For one’s own salvation, and for the welfare of the world.

If anyone can guess this is Ramakrishna Mission’ by Swami Vivekananda. We all have studied about all these philosophers, saints, reformers and preachers i do believe in these but not in those who are making fool of public at large still people do believe them, to justify them have a reason is there life and struggle and no material gain,

So in short welfare is the hardcore teaching of every Religion still we fight on Region Pathetic,

A small Piece but try and think how difficult it is for us to follow is it really so ?

Taken from life: The unsettling art of death photography

Quiet an intense pattern of art, where the loved one’s were captured right after the death so as to make them lively forever with the families as a Momento.

Kindly note the story credit is BBC News.

Photographs of loved ones taken after they died may seem morbid to modern sensibilities. But in Victorian England, they became a way of commemorating the dead and blunting the sharpness of grief.

In images that are both unsettling and strangely poignant, families pose with the dead, infants appear asleep, and consumptive young ladies elegantly recline, the disease not only taking their life but increasing their beauty

Victorian life was suffused with death. Epidemics such as diphtheria, typhus and cholera scarred the country, and from 1861 the bereaved Queen made mourning fashionable.

Trinkets of memento mori – literally meaning “remember you must die” – took several forms, and existed long before Victorian times.

It was common for families to have lots of children, and also common for them to die before their fifth birthday. In this picture, the youngest child has died and is propped against a stand for the picture

On some occasions eyes would be painted on to the photograph after it was developed, which was meant to make the deceased more lifelike (left) while other times death was more obvious

Photography studios would take a memento mori picture and print it on cards for the bereaved to give to friends and relatives.

Enter a captionLocks of hair cut from the dead were arranged and worn in lockets and rings, death masks were created in wax, and the images and symbols of death appeared in paintings and sculptures.

But in the mid-1800s photography was becoming increasingly popular and affordable – leading to memento mori photographic portraiture.

The first successful form of photography the daguerreotype – a small, highly detailed picture on polished silver – was an expensive luxury, but not nearly as costly as having a portrait painted, which previously had been the only way of permanently preserving someone’s image.

As the number of photographers increased, the cost of daguerreotypes fell. Less costly procedures were introduced in the 1850s, such as using thin metal, glass or paper rather than silver.

Death portraiture became increasingly popular. Victorian nurseries were plagued by measles, diphtheria, scarlet fever, rubella – all of which could be fatal.

It was often the first time families thought of having a photograph taken – it was the last chance to have a permanent likeness of a beloved child.

But as healthcare improved the life expectancy of children, the demand for death photography diminished.

The advent of snapshots sounded the death knell for the art – as most families would have photographs taken in life.

Now, these images of men, women and children stoically containing their grief in order to preserve the likeness of a taken-too-soon loved one, continue to live up to their name.

Memento mori: remember, you must die.

TRANS-A GENDER IDENTITY ISSUE.

An identity issue, that is stigmatized by the society.

“Viewer discretion advised”

K Prithika Yashini, aged around 25 years, is the first transgender person to become a police official in India.

There is a very insightful documentary on the subject titled “Kiss the Moon” by director Khalid Gill.

Hijras have been portrayed on screen in Indian cinema since its inception, historically as comic relief. Deepa Mehta’s Water features the hijra character “Gulabi” (played by Raghubir Yadav), who has taken to introducing the downtrodden, outcast widows of Varanasi to prostitution.

In August, 2015, a music video featuring 7 hijras dressed in outfits or uniforms of various professions and singing theNational Anthem of India created by a YouTube channel Yathartha Pictures went viral for being the first National Anthem video sung by hijras in India.The hijras featured in the video were brought together by the Humsafar Trust, a Mumbai-based NGO which promotes LGBT rights.

This has nothing to do with a persons faith believe or religion because Transgender is that mismatch between a persons gender identity expression, and their assigned sex they have conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable. They do not feel genuine, authentic, and comfortable within their external appearance as well as internal requirements now a days there are several medical reatments such as hormone replacement therapysex reassignment surgery, or psychotherapy. But the improper living condition economic deprivation isolation led them to live a miserable life.Gender identity issues, dual role , discomfort in an assigned gender, physical and psychological problems, hormonal imbalance, distress, disability , mental and emotional trauma due to rejection and so on.The social stigma attached to this specific human race still goes on even though its been six decades since our country gained independence and yet there is one important minority that still continues to live in constant fear and daily humiliation. It’s that sect whose very existence is treated as a crime. They are between us still they are seperated and seen as distinctive creature and this minority belong’s to all those who have alternative sexualities—lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBT).

Gazal Dhaliwal takes you back into a time when she was a girl trapped in a male body. She was taunted and humiliated in school and college but with her parents’ unconditional love and support, she underwent a biological sex reassignment surgery and is a confident woman today’The oppression and humiliation faced by gays and lesbians is no less tragic. They become aware of their different sexual orientation in a very homophobic society.The resultant confusion, fear and guilt haunt them through their youth but the society they belong to the lack of adaption by society as considering them being normal with what they are born. Deepak Kashyap, a counselling psychologist, experienced this first-hand while growing up—the fear and trauma even making him contemplate suicide. Despite associations of psychiatrists and psychologists all over the world stating that it is a normal human variant. Since heterosexuality is regarded as the universal norm,Some parents force heterosexual marriage on their gay son or daughter. The result is catastrophic not just for the individual but also for the person they are married to. However, some gays and lesbians have received love and support from their families who accepted their sexual orientation and this has been crucial for them to find happiness Some serial are continuously supporting and trying to educate puplic about the third gender as normal and should be adopted as what there orientation is.Many transgenders have with great courage completed their education despite the harassment, but are denied jobs or discriminated against.  Hirak Dey, who has her own beauty parlour in Raipur, and Veena Sendre who works as a beautician, prove that transgenders can all be gainfully employed and socially integrated. Today all of us have to be involved in the struggle against the discrimination and torture faced by the LGBT community. The biggest obstacle to equality for the LGBT community comes from the law. To our eternal shame, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code still criminalizes homosexuality—even among consenting adults. It is considered to be ‘against the order of nature’ and such acts are punishable for a term which may extend to upto 10 years. This law is a blot on modern India and must be amended.

According to 2014 survey the third gender in the country is counts for 4.9 lakh. While transgender activists estimate the numbers to be six to seven times higher, they are thrilled that such a large number of people identified themselves as belonging to the third gender, despite the fact that the census counting happened well before the Supreme Court order gave legal recognition to the third gender in April 2014.
Countries Giving Transgender People Fundamental Rights the In total, seven countries now offer an alternative option on their legal documents, till 2014 the U.S. government does not allow for a third, non-specific gender option on legal documents. Particularly in Asia, countries like Australia has ruled that the government should recognize a third, neutral and non-specific gender besides the traditional “male” and “female” categories. With this landmark ruling, Australia also became the world’s sixth country to recognize a third gender option for its citizens. The first to do so on its census forms was Nepal, following a 2007 decision Supreme Court landmark decision ruling against gender identity discrimination. Nepal is believed to have become the world’s first country to include a third gender option on its census forms, which it initiated in 2011. India has long recognized a community of five to six millions Indians as “hijras,” citizens who don’t identify themselves as either male or female. For years all such Indians were grouped together broadly under the term “eunuchs,” despite the fact that only 10% of them identified as such. However, this changed in 2009, when the nation’s election authorities decided to formally allow an independent designation for intersex or transgender voters. The move meant that Indians could choose an “other” category indicating their gender in voter forms. Other countries in row are Pakistan Bangladesh Germany new Zealand Australia to recognize the third gender as a specific Gender .

 

Remembering the traffic instruction advertisement by the eunuchs, and similar to that was a seat belt awareness advertisement.

Bursting myths Hijras are often encountered in streets, trains and other public places, demanding money from young men. If refused, the   eunuchs may attempt to embarrass the person into giving money, using obscene gestures, profane language and even sexual advances. There are several myths surrounding the eunuchs community. Hijras are considered dangerous. They are known for bestowing blessings, but they can bestow not only blessings but curses too. The curse of childlessness is wielded as a weapon against anyone who refuses to give them money or makes fun of them. These eunuchs perform religious ceremonies at weddings and at the birth of male babies, involving music, singing and sexually suggestive dancing. These are intended to bring good luck and fertility.Although the eunuchs are most often uninvited, the host usually pays them ‘Many fear the eunuchs curse if they are not appeased, bringing bad luck or infertility, but for the fee they receive, they can bless goodwill and fortune to the newly born.

Hijras are said to be able to do this because since they do not engage in sexual activities, they accumulate their sexual energy which they can use to either ‘bestow a boon or a bane. Of the hijras we interviewed, Humaira narrates, “The notion widely held is that when we curse people, it is accepted by God but we do not curse them very often. We are instructed by our gurus not to curse people except in very extreme because our prayers go directly on arsh; our curses are accepted by Allah”.Another myth that is known about the hijras is regarding the burial of their dead bodies. While most of the   eunuchs interviewed during the research seemed apprehensive and reluctant to the question relating to the burial of their dead bodies, only one of them talked very briefly about it. According to Saima, (one of the eunuchs interviewed), the hijras bury their dead bodies at night and not during the daytime. This is so because although they bury their dead bodies in the same graveyard where all individuals/Muslims do, it is a widely believed notion that since the eunuchs an not give birth to a child, anyone who sees their dead body will tend to suffer from bad luck and infertility for the rest of their life. Thus it is evident that the identity of eunuchs is fabricated with myths and portrayals that might or might not be true.

Due to illiteracy and societal rejection the large number of LGBT are involved in such activities which harnesses them into the risk of HIV/AIDS, sex workers,

Steve Jobs, a Hindu holy man, and the Apple logo

13335771_1157761514282133_2529531572793960739_n

In the ’70s Steve Jobs travelled to India to visit a renowned guru whose favourite fruit became the logo of one of the world’s most renowned companies. Geoff Wood talks with other spiritual seekers and finds out what the future billionaire might have been looking for.

Before Mr Jobs founded what is now the world’s largest tech company, he travelled to India early in 1974, desperate for darshan (sight), and to be in the presence of the renowned Hindu holy man Neem Karoli Baba, also known as Maharaj-ji.

Considered to be a manifestation of the god Hanuman, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, Maharaj-ji had become something of a magnet to young westerners making the now-familiar ‘journey to the East’. From his ashram in Kainchi in the foothills of the Himalayas, he received a steady flow of spiritual seekers from all over the world. Among them was the young Richard Alpert who would later find fame as Ram Dass, author of the seminal book Be Here Now.

Larry Brilliant, an epidemiologist who went on to run Google’s philanthropic organisation Google.org and oversee the Skoll Global Threats Fund, was another early visitor. Given the name Subramanyum, he was tasked by his guru to eradicate smallpox, a project which he undertook with the help of the World Health Organization.

Mr Jobs at the time was working at the young video games start-up Atari in Los Angeles. But the seed of his spiritual quest had already been sown. Jai Uttal, a Kirtan musician and world sacred music pioneer, told me this story on a recent trip to Australia:

Let me share with you a very interesting story. We don’t know the effects of ourselves and every step that we make in life. It’s very hard to know. We say hi to somebody in the street, we don’t know the ripples of all of our actions. So my memory for my life—my memory is not that great—I went to Reed College in 1969, which is the same school that Steve Jobs went to. Now Steve was a year younger than me, so I dropped out in five months, so I didn’t stay in school. So I didn’t meet him then. I met him a little later with a friend of mine, just said hi, kinda, and then after I had dropped out of college I went up to Reed College on a small music tour with some friends and Steve and his friend came to hear our concert. After the concert we all hung out and I was just freshly back from India and I told Steve and his buddy all about Maharaj-ji and this is what ignited the desire in him to go see him.

Now I didn’t remember any of this until a couple of months ago, right after Steve died his friend sent me an email and said hi, and so great to reconnect with you. I [did] not remember him but he reminded me of a couple of times that we had re-met over the years and he said that I wanted to tell you that it was our hanging out with you that night in 1973 that stimulated us to go to India to see Maharaj-ji and sadly we didn’t meet him. And I thought, that is such an amazing story, and not because I, big me, got him to go to India. I didn’t mean that, but just how we influence each other on this journey and we never know it. I was blown out by that and I was very happy to hear it. And odd that I have no real memory of it, but there it is.

Mr Jobs flew into New Delhi in April 1974, booked into a cheap hotel and came down with dysentery almost immediately. As soon as he was well enough he travelled to Haridwar in western India for the great Hindu festival known as the Kumbh Mela. From there he took a train and a bus to Kainchi in the foothills of the Himalayas to the ashram of Neem Karoli Baba. He rented a room with a mattress on the floor from a local family who fed him vegetarian meals. But he had arrived too late. Maharaj-ji was no longer present, having attained Mahasamadhi (left his body) the previous September.

Another devotee at the Kainchi ashram in the early ’70s was Jeffrey Kagel, known today as Krishna Das, the chant master of American yoga. Like many others he arrived at his first darshan loaded with apples as an offering to Maharaj-ji. I asked Krishna Das what happened next:

Well we heard that he likes apples, so we brought apples. It was funny. I offered them to him and he took them and immediately distributed them to other people in the room. And I thought, ‘Oh, he doesn’t like my apples.’ So he immediately looked at me and said, ‘What did I do?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know.’ ‘Did I do right?’ I said, ‘I don’t know.’ ‘Did I do right?’ I said, ‘Anything you do is right.’ He just laughed and said, ‘If one has God, one doesn’t need anything. One has no desire.’ And then I saw myself and all my desires and I went, ‘Oh boy, I’ve got a long way to go.’ It was funny but the thing was he knew exactly what I was thinking immediately. And he showed me he did. And he taught me from the inside that way.

Like Krishna Das, Mr Jobs never forgot his time at the Kainchi ashram. Although he arrived too late to meet his guru in person—and despite his subsequent rise to fame—for most of his life Mr Jobs continued to pursue prajna, a Sanskrit word used in Hindu and Buddhist philosophy meaning consciousness or wisdom, a form of cognitive understanding of the nature of reality achieved through meditation and mindfulness.

In his later years he turned also to Zen Buddhism for answers. But as a young man, his first great pilgrimage took him to India, and to a Hindu holy man fond of apples.
