गर्मीयों में पशु-पक्षियों की कदर

     मानव जीवन में  प्रकृति का साथ, पहले से लेकर आखिर तक लगा रहता है।  प्रकृति मानव जीवन को आसन बनाने के लिए, क्या कुछ नही करता या देता।  लेकिन मानव प्रकृति की ओर तोडा ज्यादा ही निर्लक्ष्य रहता है।  चाहे ओ पेड, पौधे, पशु-पक्षि, जल, हवा इत्यादि।  इनका ख्याल रखना मानव का एक प्रथम कर्तव्य है।  हमेशा न ही सही गर्मीयों के मौसँ में पशु-पक्षियों का कदर करना या उनका ख्याल रखना अत्यावश्यक है।  इस मौसँ में धूँप ज्यादा होने से छाँव और प्यास भूजाने के लिए पानी उपलब्ध करवायें तो लाभ दायक होगा।
गर्मीयों में पशु-पक्षियों के लिए .............

·                  शाम को या सवेरे ही बाहर घुमाये।
·                  वक्त मिलने पर उन्हे नेहलाए।  बहुत दिनों तक न यूही रखे।
·                  उनके बच्चे हों तो उनको पास ही रहने दे।
·                  बीमार होने पर डाक्टर को तुरन्त बुलाए।
·                  घर के पास पेड होतो, उन्हे घनें ही रहने दे, डालियों को मत काटे, वह पक्षियों को टेहरने के लिए एक जगह बनेगा, साथ ही घोंसला बनाने में मददगार होगी।
इन्सानों के लिए भी छाँव पाना आसान होगा।

                                          image of coriander seeds & leaves के लिए इमेज परिणाम

Coriander leaves and seeds are the most used in the kitchen where sambhar and Rasam are prepared, because without these the two dishes are not complete. Coriander seeds are the major ingredients in preparing sambar powder &rasam powder.

                                         image of coriander seeds & leaves के लिए इमेज परिणाम
Coriander leaves are referred to as fresh coriander, Chinese parsley and cilantro. Many varieties of chutneys are prepared with coriander leaves and these are also used in salads. As heat diminishes their flavour, coriander leaves are often used raw or added to a dish immediately before serving. Chopped coriander leaves are a garnish on several Indian dishes. These are often included in Chinese and Mexican cooking.

The leaves are a wonderful source of dietary fibre, manganese, iron and magnesium as well. In addition, they are rich in vitamin C, vitamin K and protein. They also contain small amounts of calcium, phosphorous, potassium, thiamine, niacin and carotene.

Citronelol in coriander is an excellent antiseptic. Other components have anti –microbial, anti- arthritic, anti-rheumatic properties. Coriander is traditionally used in the treatment of swelling, diarrhoea, eye care, digestion, mouth ulcers, anaemia, and skin disorders.

Coriander chutney
·       Chop coriander leaves. Remove hard stem and grind to a smooth paste with onion, green chillies and salt. Add lime juice to taste. Mix well and serve with Idlli, dosa, or with plain white rice.

I am A failure…………….. By AkhilSharma

                                    image of the book i am a failure by akhil sharma के लिए इमेज परिणाम

Man’s Testament

Question not, but live and labour
Till yon goal be won,
Helping every feeble neighbour,
Seeking help from none;
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own
                                                             Adam Lindsay Gordon.

I am A failure by Akhil sharma is a fictional biography .Akhil sharma deserves a hearty appreciation for his outstanding courage to fix such a title and write about the same in a incredibly phenomenal way.
Generally many autobiographies, biographies are written by famous personalities reflecting their life experiences, but to write about failures, requires a special inner strength and strategy.
The author is quite successful in penning this book with lots of messages and information and also conveyed in a nice way that failure can happen to anyone and it’s not particularly you – the only one suffering from the effect of failure. There are many in this world facing the same problem of Failure and the way we deal with it is different

‘’Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.  Ambrose Redmoon.

Apart from a prologue and epilogue, this book holds thirteen chapters, dealing with different aspects of Failure. I quote from page 202-“”We all always want to keep success close to our heart and our heart closed to any failure.”’ true behaviour of a simple human being. Want of success is neither a sin nor a crime and it is quite natural for a human being to hope for success in his life, but what‘s the hindrance? What to do and how to accept the failure and how to prepare oneself to face it? All these are the normal queries and answers to these depends on the perception of the individual. Here the author emphasizes to accept &face the Failure.

Akhil Sharma’s book carries varied &unique concepts of dealing with failures by an individual from his childhood days to his adult hood. At that juncture he says that “Childhood beliefs once formed are so strong that even today, I believe in it. hence started my life long struggle for success.””  So, please provide children the more, the better, and the best morals and values.

                    Impact of success &failure of a child on his parents :
“”my parents were even more happy than me. Being from a middle class, they were paying heavily for all my failures. For once, they thought that now my life was all settled and they needed not to worry any more. Believe me, the experience was not as sweet as they thought and they often felt like unemployed from the department of worry for their child.””

Learning English language and English communication skills over telephone are the notable point in the book about a language.
Hindi words like Ishq, mushk, aukaat , tedhu, rakshabandhan, char din, char log, and char baatein, khatiya, fata poster, nikala mentor, vasudaiv kutumbakam added fine touches here &there.

Caller id- in telephones, love poems, movie songs, telephone lines- private &social fixed lines, watching tv serials, inter school rivalry, dowry in the form of free call credits &study room table &chairs, dairy farm all these are the most prominent issues in those days, its effects in his life are cleared stated.  

Walking dust bin, dressed up like onions, friction is a funny paradox, smile of encouragement, lie build up & lie buster, ambitions are like elephant’s teeth, the ones for display and the real ones are amazing concepts dealt in the book.

“when I failed to get rid of my disability, I failed to consider it as one””,  His jaw dislocation reminded him of the famous MONALISA painting, where Mona Lisa’s expression changes if looked at from different angles. I am actually the living MONA LISA of God-Da- Vinci painter. The only difference is that the gender has reversed and the canvas is live.””  Puts forth the idea of acceptance &power.

“”If you started cheating in life, life will start cheating on you. Later he also realised
And felt good about being able to pass in the exam without cheating. This incident gave me the confidence to abandon cheating at all. “”  dictates Moral boost

‘’Little did we know that the more you hurry for success, the more the success hurries away.’’  Presents about Hope and failure

“”I believed that I was a dark horse, partly because of my capabilities and attitude and mostly because of my skin colour. Still that stable one never visited me in my stable.””   Thoughts on Expectations and failures

 fight between heart &mind, dealing with weakness, differentiating motivation and inspiration, aspirations,  Intellect &courage, are purely structured for the readers to understand and proceed further.

“”Success not equal to our hopes”” by Shakespeare in Troilus and Cressida
The ample proposition, that hope makes
In all designs begun on earth below,
Fails in the promis’d largeness: checks and disasters
Grow in the veins of actions highest rear’d:
As knots, by the conflux of meeting sap,
Infect the sound pine, and divert his grain
Tortive and errant from his course of growth

                                          image of the book little maryam by hamid baig के लिए इमेज परिणाम

“”The wound is the place where the light enters you.””-Rumi,   is the quote that welcomes the reader’s into the world of LITTLE MARYAM.   Rumi-  a 13thcentury Persian poet with immense talent and power to put the complexities of human life in few words. “”Brevity is the soul of wit.””
His works are translated into many world languages. Rumi’s quote is an apt opening for the book.

LITTLE MARYAM BY HAMID BAIG has two parts, SAADIQ HAIDER is the title of the  first part with ten chapters. MARYAM is the name given to the second part of the book with seven chapters. LITTLE MARYAM is Hamid Baig’s debut novel. The author has lead the novel in a steady phase with clean &clear plot, appropriate descriptions, diligent characters all in a compelling style.

The term Literature generally refers to any written or spoken material in any language. It encompasses every sphere of human life like culture, tradition, history, psychology etc. Poetry, short story, drama, novel etc are the various genres in the world literature. 

Literature is the most effective mode of expression to represent this world. To depict the human life in all its richness, it uses a distinctive form to expresses various emotions and feelings. These varied emotional expressions are called RASA (FLAVOUR), Sentiments in English literature. The Nine emotions included are termed  as NAVARASA. They are (SHINGARA) love, (HASYA) humour,(KARUNA) grief, (RAUDRA) rage,(VEERA) valour, (BHAYANAKA) fear,(BIBHATSYA) disgust,(ADBUTHA) wonder and (SHANTHA) tranquillity. Love is of two folds- love in union and love in separation.

Author has taken stupendous effort in depicting SHINGARA &KARUNA RASA in the LITTLE MARYAM.
“”Open the book to page99 and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you””, said English novelist and poet Ford Madox Ford. This book bears testimony to this. The page 99 also serves the reader’s the taste and flavour of SHINGARARASA at its best.

The author uses the word KALPAVRIKSHA –a wish yielding tree, in three different places in the book in three dimensions which provides enough evidence for his wide reading and interest in other languages.

I quote from page 36,
“”Maryam is…well, she and her father are members of a higher class of people, Saadiq.  A class that you and I do not belong to”.
“”Baba, we don’t care about things like that. Maryam and I are the same, in our hearts. Society can dictate some things, but it can’t decide whether or not she and I can be friends. I won’t let allow it.”” 
Author showcases the bias in the society in the simple way &at the same time the heroic qualities of saadiq. Love transcends all barriers.

BIBHATSYA & KARUNA RASA together can be a tough time in one’s life. In the pages of 58 &59, the author has meticulously handled the situation. LITTLE MARYAM is a sensitive tale of life’s ups &downs. It brings out the intense emotions of painstaking and grief-stricken individual.  

‘”People are like stained –glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.

Life is full of ups &downs,
Girls are in frocks &gowns.
Inside, outside, rush, rush, rush,
Everybody in gush, gush, gush.
Shorter, taller, greater, smarter,
All in a fuss, fuss, fuss.
Brighter, lighter, purple future
Awaiting to hold it closer.
Building lots of crazy dreams
Marching towards a wonderful beam.
 Consider the crop up &hop, hop, hop
Remember not to sob, sob, sob.
Actions need to be strong &long
Intentions need to be clean & clear.
Then, catch the beam with golden touch
Riding on a horse back.
