“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold,
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be

Someone wiped away a tear
Held me close and loved me,
Thank you, Mother dear.

When you feel you are alone in the crowd,
When you think No.1 can understand you,
When your love is rejected by others,
& when you hate your Life,
Just close your eyes, & see, her face who loves you
More than any 1 else,
Who care for you in loneliness,
& dies when you cry.
She is no 1, but your sweet loving mother.
Love your mom first and always.

For the best mom
Who always had a smile for me
I know we may be far apart right now
So here’s a great big hug and kiss

இந்து மதத்தில் பிரம்மசரியம், கிரஹஸ்தம், வானபிரஸ்தம், சன்யாசம் என்று நான்கு ஆசிரம தர்மங்கள் சொல்லப்படுகின்றன, அப்படியென்றால் என்ன? அதன் விளக்கம் யாது என்று பலர் அறிந்து கொள்ள விரும்பலாம்


ஒவ்வொரு மனிதனுக்குள்ளும் கடவுள் தன்மை மறைந்து கிடக்கிறது என இந்து மதம் சொல்கிறது.

அப்படி மறைந்து கிடக்கும் கடவுள் தன்மையை எல்லா மனிதர்களும் தானாகவே உணர்ந்து கொள்ள முடிவதில்லை. எதாவது ஒரு புறத்துண்டுதல் வேண்டும்.

எனவே மனிதனுடைய அறிவு கண்ணை திறப்பதற்கு பிரம்மசரியம் என்ற தர்மம் இந்து மதத்தால் வலியுறுத்தப்படுகிறது.

பெண்கள் ஆண்களை தொடாமலும், ஆண்கள் பெண்களை நாடாமலும் இருப்பது மட்டுமல்ல பிரம்மசரியம்.

நல்ல விஷயங்களை கற்றுகொள்ளுதல், உலக ஞானம் பெறுதல், வாழ்க்கை முறைகளை அறிதல், தனது சுயதர்மமான செயல்களை புரிவதற்கான தொழில்நுட்ப பயிற்சியை பெறுதல் ஆகிய எல்லாமே பிரம்மசரிய தர்மத்திற்குள் அடங்கி விடுகிறது.

வித்தைகளை கற்றுக் கொண்டேயிருப்பது மட்டும் வாழும் முறையாகாது. கற்றவற்றை வாழ்ந்து காட்ட வேண்டும்.

எனவே ஒரு மனிதன் ஐந்து வயது முதல் இருபத்தி நான்கு வயது வரை கற்பதை கற்றுவிட்டு உலக வாழ்க்கைக்குள் நுழைவதே கிரஹஸ்தம் ஆகும்.

இந்த தர்மத்தை மேற்கொள்ளும் போது தனிமனிதனாக இருந்தவன் தனது வாழ்க்கை துணையை தேடிக் கொள்ள வேண்டும்.

ஆண், பெண் சேர்க்கை என்பது வெறும் உடல் இன்பத்தை அனுபவிக்க மட்டுமல்ல, சமுதாயத்தின் அடுத்த தலைமுறையை உருவாக்குவதற்கே ஆகும்.

பிரம்மசரியத்தை விட்டு கிரஹஸ்தனாக மாறும் ஆணும் பெண்ணும் தங்களது அறிவை நல்ல வழியில் செலவிட்டு பொருள் தேட வேண்டும்.

காரணம் குடும்பஸ்தனை நம்பியே சமூகம் இருக்கிறது. அரசாங்கத்திற்கு வரிகட்டுவதும், வணிக பொருட்கள் விற்பனையாவதும், மாணவர்களும் வாழ்க்கையை துறந்த சன்னியாசிகளும் நம்பியிருப்பது குடும்பஸ்தனையே ஆகும். இப்படிப்பட்ட தர்மமே கிரஹஸ்த தர்மமாகும்.

நல்ல பிள்ளைகளை பெற்று நல்ல விதத்தில் பொருள் ஈட்டி சமுதாயத்திற்கு தன்னால் இயன்ற ஒத்தாசைகளை செய்து முடித்த பிறகு மனிதர்கள் அடுத்த தலைமுறையினருக்கு வழிவிட்டு ஒதுங்கி ஓய்வெடுப்பதே வானபிரஸ்தம் எனப்படுகிறது.

எளிய வாழ்க்கையும் இறைவழிபாட்டையும் தனது வாழ்க்கை துணையுடன் ஊருக்குள் இருந்தோ ஊருக்கு வெளியே சென்றோ மேற்கொள்ள வேண்டியது வானபிரஸ்தனின் முக்கிய கடமையாகும்.

பரம்பொருள் ஒன்றே நித்தியமானது. புலன்களால் அனுபவிக்கும் எல்லாம் அநித்தியமானது என்பதை உணர்ந்து மனதை அடக்கி மூச்சை தேக்கி உடலை ஒடுக்கி வாழ்வதே சன்னியாச தர்மமாகும்.

சன்னியாச தர்மத்தை மேற்கொள்ளுதல் என்பது உலகத்தை புறக்கணிப்பது ஆகாது.

நமக்கு சொந்தம் என்ற நிலையிலிருந்து மாறி உலகுக்கு நாம் சொந்தம் என்ற நிலைக்கு வருவதே சன்னியாசம் ஆகும்.

சகல உயிர்களையும் தன் உயிர் போல் மதித்தல் ஆசைகளை அடக்கி, சங்கல்பத்தை ஒழித்து பரம்பொருளின் எண்ணப்படி வாழும் சன்னியாச தர்மம் மனிதனை நாட்டை விட்டு காட்டுக்கு போ என சொல்லவில்லை.

மாறாக கசாப்பு கடையில் இருந்தாலும் சைவமாய் இரு. மதுக்கடையில் வாழ்ந்தாலும் குடிக்காமல் இரு. என்பதை போல சாதாரன உலக மக்களிடத்தில் வாழ்ந்தாலும் பற்றற்று இரு. தெய்வத்தை பற்றி கொண்டிரு என்று சொல்வதே ஆகும்.

இந்த நான்கு வகை தர்மங்களை கடைபிடிப்பதற்கு எந்த காலகட்டம் சிறந்தது. திருமணம் செய்து கொள்வதை பொறுத்தா, பணம் சம்பாதிப்பதை பொறுத்தா என்ற கேள்விகள் அடுத்தடுத்து எழலாம்.

சாகும் நிமிடம் வரை படித்துக் கொண்டே இருந்தாலும் பள்ளி படிப்புக்கென்று ஒரு வயது இருக்கிறது. அதிகபட்சமாக முப்பது வயதுக்கு மேலும் படிப்பது அவ்வளவு நன்றாகயிறாது.

எனவே இல்லறத்தான் என்ற தகுதியை அதிகபட்சம் முப்பது வயதிலாவது மனிதன் பெற வேண்டும். அப்படி பெற்ற பிறகு தனது பிள்ளைகள் பொறுப்புக்கு வந்தவுடன் ஓடிக்கொண்டேயிருப்பவன் ஆசைகளை வளர்த்துக் கொண்டு அற்ப வாழ்க்கை வாழ்பவன் ஆகும்.

சன்நியாயாச தர்மத்தை ஒரு மனிதன் எப்போது வேண்டுமானாலும் கடைபிடிக்கலாம் என்கிறது இந்துமதம்

காரணம் ஒருவனுக்கு ஞானம் இந்த வயதில்தான் பிறக்கும் என்று எப்படி வரையரை செய்ய முடியும்?

பல் முளைக்கும் முன்பும் காவி தரிக்கலாம் பல் விழுந்த பிறகும் தரிக்கலாம்

ஆனால் ஜெயின் மதத்தைப் போல துறவு பெற்றால்தான் முத்தி என இந்துமதம் பிடிவாதம் செய்வதில்லை

மற்ற ஐரோப்பிய அரேபிய மதங்களைப் போல இப்படிச் செய்தால்தான் கடவுள் ஏற்றுக் கொள்வார் இல்லையென்றால் கண்ணை குத்திவிடுவார் என பூச்சாண்டிக் காட்டி தனிமனித சுதந்திரத்தை தட்டிப் பறிப்பதில்லை

The ‘Middle Wife’ 
by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher
I’ve been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they’re welcome.
Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant. ‘This is Luke, my baby brother, and I’m going to tell you about his birthday.’
‘First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom’s stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.’
She’s standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I’m trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.
‘Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts going, ‘Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!’ Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. ‘She walked around the house for, like an hour, ‘Oh, oh, oh!’ (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)
‘My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn’t have a sign on the car like the Domino’s man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.’ (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)
‘And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!’ (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)
‘Then the middle wife starts saying ‘push, push,’ and ‘breathe, breathe.
They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom’s play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there in the first place.’
Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat.
I’m sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it’s Show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another ‘Middle Wife’ comes along.
Now you have two choices…laugh and close this page or pass this along to someone else to spread the laughs. I know what I did!!!
Live every day as if it is your LAST chance to make someone happy!
 
“Laugh uncontrollably, it clears the mind.”

The ‘Middle Wife’ by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher
I’ve been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they’re welcome.
Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant. ‘This is Luke, my baby brother, and I’m going to tell you about his birthday.’
‘First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom’s stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.’
She’s standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I’m trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.
‘Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts going, ‘Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!’ Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. ‘She walked around the house for, like an hour, ‘Oh, oh, oh!’ (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)
‘My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn’t have a sign on the car like the Domino’s man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.’ (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)
‘And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!’ (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)
‘Then the middle wife starts saying ‘push, push,’ and ‘breathe, breathe.
They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom’s play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there in the first place.’
Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat.
I’m sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it’s Show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another ‘Middle Wife’ comes along.
Now you have two choices…laugh and close this page or pass this along to someone else to spread the laughs. I know what I did!!!
Live every day as if it is your LAST chance to make someone happy!

The runny nose, hacking cough, sore throat, headache—it’s no wonder people resort to all sorts of absurd remedies to cure the all-too-common cold. We talked to experts to get a better idea of the tried-and-true things that actually work, and got a stuffy-nose full of commonly held myths that you should avoid.
Yes, you could keep buying into those sketchy cold remedies at the drugstore this cold season, but rather than throwing money away on unproven snake oil, stick with the health measures that doctors agree will decrease your cold potential. We spoke with infectious disease physician Dr. Amesh Adalka, ER doctor John Shufeldt, and nutritionists Joshua Duavuchelle and Trudy Scott to uncover the proven ways to fend off a cold.

What Works: The Indisputable Basics

Who better to ask for cold prevention advice than a doctor? Besides specializing in healthcare, these are the people at the frontline of germ attacks. So how do they manage being exposed to all of us sick people day after day without taking hundreds of sick days every year? It’s pretty simple:

1. Get Sufficient Sleep

Little wonder lack of sleep and sickness are tied together: You haven’t had enough rest, so your mind and body are taxed and you just can’t function properly (in fact, you might as well be drunk according to one study). Poor sleep has been clearly associated with an increased susceptibility to illness: In a study published in Arch Intern Med (and cited by Eric Barker’s personal blog Barking up the wrong tree, of the 153 healthy people given a rhinovirus (the predominant cause of the common cold), those who slept fewer than 7 hours were almost three times more likely to develop a cold than those with 8 or more hours of sleep. Just one hour’s difference! Demographics, body mass, health practices, and other factors were ruled out in this study; “feeling rested” also had no association with developing a cold, so you do needactual sleep.
Dr. Amesh Adalja, a board-certified infectious diseases physician, listed sleep at the top of his three things to do to prevent a cold, saying decreased sleep efficiency or duration leads to a greater likeliness of catching a rhinovirus infection. So, seriously, make sleep a priority.
The other two basic cold prevention tactics that Dr. Adalja and other doctors said really work:

2. Wash Your Hands Often

Unsurprisingly, all of our docs recommended hand washing. WebMD reports that “about 80% of infectious diseases are transmitted by touch” and notes that “Operation Stop Cough,” which had military recruits wash their hands at least five times a day, reduced cases of respiratory ailments by 45% simply through hand-washing.
Dr. John Shufeldt, an Arizona ER physician and founder of MeMD, told me that:
Most cold and flu viruses are spread by direct contact and something as simple as sneezing into your hand and then touching your phone, a doorknob or keyboard. These germs can live for hours, in some cases weeks, only to be picked up by the next person who touches the same object. Washing your hands often or at the minimum using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer will help knock out the majority of cold germs.
This might sound really obvious to you, but research shows a majority of college students and adults have poor hand-washing habits: 47-60% of the 3,000 US and Canadian adults surveyed sometimes skip soap when washing their hands, and nearly a quarter don’t wash their hands after coughing or sneezing. When we looked at how to wash your hands correctly, one doctor cited a study where 45% of college students neglected to wash their hands at all after using the bathroom. Gross. If you needed motivation to wash your hands several times a day, just think about those people.
Dr. Adalja recommended washing your hands several times a day, singing the “Happy Birthday” song twice while you’re at it, and avoid touching your face.

3. Don’t Smoke or Drink

Yup, more reasons to ditch your favorite vices: Cigarettes and alcohol are associated with greater likeliness of catching a cold—and colds that last longer and are more severe, to boot. Dr. Schufelt notes that:
Even exposure to smoke profoundly zaps the immune system, drying out your nasal passages and paralyzing cilia (delicate hairs that line the mucous membranes in your nose and lungs whose movement sweeps cold and flu viruses out of the nasal passages). *One* cigarette can paralyze cilia for as long as 30 to 40 minutes.
Alcohol dehydrates your body, and cold germs love that dry environment. This leads us to the fourth thing that can help you avoid a cold:

Tier Two: The Little Things that Help

The three previous techniques are without a doubt the most important to keep in mind, and according to our experts, they’re your best bets for steering clear of the common cold. If you’re looking for a few more simple and helpful options, try these next four options.

4. Get Steamed Up and Moving

A 1989 German study found that people who steamed up at a sauna or spa twice a week got 50% fewer colds than those who didn’t steam, Dr. Schufelt said. Perhaps it’s because cold and flu viruses can’t survive in air hotter than 80 degrees.
In a recent study involving 1,000 people, those who exercised for at least 20 minutes five or more times a week—with exercise intensive enough to break a sweat—nearly halved their chances of developing a cold:
People who were physically active on five or more days of the week were unwell with a cold for about five days of the three-month period, compared to nine days for those who did little or no exercise.
And even when they were ill, they suffered less with their symptoms.
Joshua Duavuchelle, a nutritionist and health writer, suggests combining the power of exercise with a warm, moist environment: e.g., Bikram (“Hot”) Yoga.

5. Eat Chicken Soup

The age-old chicken soup cure is one of the most popular home remedies for fighting the common cold, with ingredients possessing anti-inflammitory effects, according to University of Nebraska Medical Center research labs, but can it stop a cold from taking over your body in the first place? Yes and no, said Duavuchelle. While studies haven’t focused specifically on their preventative aspects, chicken soup has a lot going for it: hydration, heat, and, often, garlic, which has been cited in one small study as potentially boosting the body’s immune system; garlic’s active compound, allicin, may have helped reduce the incidents of colds for those of the 146 participants who took garlic daily for three months. So while there’s nothing particularly special about chicken soup in and of itself, a bowl of soup never hurts.

6. Get More Sunshine or Vitamin D

During the winter, our vitamin D levels tend to drop, thanks to our cold season cave-like habits. Trudy Scott, nutritionist and president of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, said that getting your vitamin D levels tested and supplementing if you have a vitamin D deficiency is vital to strengthening your immune system. Because sunshine is most people’s main source of vitamin D, look to other sources like eggs, salmon, shrimp, and milk or orange juice fortified with vitamin D.

7. Get a Massage

Any excuse to get a massage works for me, so here’s a new one: treating yourself to a stress-relieving massage can help prevent a cold. Dr. Adalja said that massage therapy as a stress reliever could have some benefit in enhancing the immune system, especially since psychological stress is known to increase risk of catching a cold (a study published in 1991 by Carnegie Mellon University concluded that the risk of catching a cold was related to the person’s degree of stress; in a follow-up study, people with chronic stress, in particular—stress lasting at least one month— were more likely to catch a cold than those with acute stress).
Relaxation “activates the interleukins in your immune system, leaders in the immune system response against cold and flu viruses,” Dr. Schufelt added.

What You Might Think Works But Probably Doesn’t

At this point, chances are you’re not completely surprised by what actually helps you avoid the common cold. Basically, if it’s known to keep you healthy in general, it’ll also keep colds at bay. Getting sleep, exercising, laying off the extracurricular substances, and getting a handle on stress will go a long way toward keeping the sniffles at bay. What are we wasting our time and money on?
Basically, except for the basics above, nothing has been undisputedly proven to help reduce the risk of getting the sniffles this season, according to Dr. Adalja and the other medical experts.
As USA Today notes, this includes:
  • Vitamin C: The jury is still out on Vitamin C’s role against colds; a review of studies with 11,000 total participants found 200mg or more of vitamin C a day didn’t reduce the risk of getting a cold, though it reduced the duration by just a few hours.
  • Echinacea: Likewise, studies are mixed for echinacea, possibly due to differences in the echinacea plants used and their preparation. The largest study of echinacea found a placebo worked as well as the herb for preventing a cold.
  • Zinc: A recent review of 15 studies did find zinc lozenges or syrup can shorten colds by one day if the person takes the zinc within 24 hours of getting cold symptoms. However, the quality of the studies has been questioned and further research is still needed. Duvauchelle points to a meta-analysis published in Oxford’s “Clinical Infectious Diseases” medical journal; over 14 placebo-controlled studies of zinc combatting the common cold, 7 showed positive effect and 7 showed no effects.
  • Saline nasal spray: Can provide relief from congestion, but won’t make a cold disappear or keep from invading your body.
  • Over-the-counter cold medications and antihistamines: As with saline spray, they might make you feel better, but won’t prevent a cold or shorten how long a cold lasts.
  • Antibiotics also don’t work on colds, because a cold is a virus while antibiotics only work on bacterial infections.
  • Increased exposure to people with colds: I wondered if doctors and other people who are often around sick people (e.g., teachers) build up their immunity by exposure, but Dr. Adalja said, not really. There are too many variants of the cold virus that you couldn’t really build your immunity to all of them.
Some may swear by tactics above, and while there’s something to be said for feeling like you’re doing something to help, the results of studies for these preventive measures and remedies are at best uncertain.
So, I say to you once again: Get a decent amount of sleep, wash those hands, and relax (I’ll take massage, thanks!). Doing so will pay off in more ways than one this cold season

A group of children are playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. Only one child is playing on the disused track, the rest on the optional one.

The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange. You can make the train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids. However, that would also mean the lone child playing at the disused one would be sacrificed. Or would you rather let the train go its way?

Lets pause to think what decision we would eventually make…

Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one lone child. You may think the same way, I guess. But did you think that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where danger was. This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are. The child who chose not to play with the rest on the used track was sidelined. And in the case where he was sacrificed, none shed a tear for him.

 
The scenario teaches us another lesson that while we are taking right decisions in our life, its our moral responsibility to teach others about the dangers of chosing the wrong options. If we do not do this we might have to suffer, like the boy in this scenario. If the kid opted to teach his fellow freinds about the in-service track, all of them would be safe and sound.

 

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right ones.

“Remember that what’s right isn’t always popular, and what’s popular isn’t always right.”

Everybody makes mistakes, that’s why they put erasers on pencils.
