आप सुहिगिनो को करवाचौथ की हार्दिक शुभकामनाये

करवा चौथ की कथा –

बहुत समय पहले की बात है, एक साहूकार के सात बेटे और उनकी एक बहन करवा थी। सभी सातों भाई अपनी बहन से बहुत प्यार करते थे। यहाँ तक कि वे पहले उसे खाना खिलाते और बाद में स्वयं खाते थे। एक बार उनकी बहन ससुराल से मायके आई हुई थी।

शाम को भाई जब अपना व्यापार-व्यवसाय बंद कर घर आए तो देखा उनकी बहन बहुत व्याकुल थी। सभी भाई खाना खाने बैठे और अपनी बहन से भी खाने का आग्रह करने लगे, लेकिन बहन ने बताया कि उसका आज करवा चौथ का निर्जल व्रत है और वह खाना सिर्फ चंद्रमा को देखकर उसे अर्घ्य देकर ही खा सकती है। चूँकि चंद्रमा अभी तक नहीं निकला है, इसलिए वह भूख-प्यास से व्याकुल हो उठी है।

सबसे छोटे भाई को अपनी बहन की हालत देखी नहीं जाती और वह दूर पीपल के पेड़ पर एक दीपक जलाकर चलनी की ओट में रख देता है। दूर से देखने पर वह ऐसा प्रतीत होता है कि जैसे चतुर्थी का चाँद उदित हो रहा हो।

इसके बाद भाई अपनी बहन को बताता है कि चाँद निकल आया है, तुम उसे अर्घ्य देने के बाद भोजन कर सकती हो। बहन खुशी के मारे सीढ़ियों पर चढ़कर चाँद को देखती है, उसे अर्घ्य देकर खाना खाने बैठ जाती है।

वह पहला टुकड़ा मुँह में डालती है तो उसे छींक आ जाती है। दूसरा टुकड़ा डालती है तो उसमें बाल निकल आता है और जैसे ही तीसरा टुकड़ा मुँह में डालने की कोशिश करती है तो उसके पति की मृत्यु का समाचार उसे मिलता है। वह बौखला जाती है।

उसकी भाभी उसे सच्चाई से अवगत कराती है कि उसके साथ ऐसा क्यों हुआ। करवा चौथ का व्रत गलत तरीके से टूटने के कारण देवता उससे नाराज हो गए हैं और उन्होंने ऐसा किया है।

सच्चाई जानने के बाद करवा निश्चय करती है कि वह अपने पति का अंतिम संस्कार नहीं होने देगी और अपने सतीत्व से उन्हें पुनर्जीवन दिलाकर रहेगी। वह पूरे एक साल तक अपने पति के शव के पास बैठी रहती है। उसकी देखभाल करती है। उसके ऊपर उगने वाली सूईनुमा घास को वह एकत्रित करती जाती है।

एक साल बाद फिर करवा चौथ का दिन आता है। उसकी सभी भाभियाँ करवा चौथ का व्रत रखती हैं। जब भाभियाँ उससे आशीर्वाद लेने आती हैं तो वह प्रत्येक भाभी से ‘यम सूई ले लो, पिय सूई दे दो, मुझे भी अपनी जैसी सुहागिन बना दो’ ऐसा आग्रह करती है, लेकिन हर बार भाभी उसे अगली भाभी से आग्रह करने का कह चली जाती है।

इस प्रकार जब छठे नंबर की भाभी आती है तो करवा उससे भी यही बात दोहराती है। यह भाभी उसे बताती है कि चूँकि सबसे छोटे भाई की वजह से उसका व्रत टूटा था अतः उसकी पत्नी में ही शक्ति है कि वह तुम्हारे पति को दोबारा जीवित कर सकती है, इसलिए जब वह आए तो तुम उसे पकड़ लेना और जब तक वह तुम्हारे पति को जिंदा न कर दे, उसे नहीं छोड़ना। ऐसा कह के वह चली जाती है।

सबसे अंत में छोटी भाभी आती है। करवा उनसे भी सुहागिन बनने का आग्रह करती है, लेकिन वह टालमटोली करने लगती है। इसे देख करवा उन्हें जोर से पकड़ लेती है और अपने सुहाग को जिंदा करने के लिए कहती है। भाभी उससे छुड़ाने के लिए नोचती है, खसोटती है, लेकिन करवा नहीं छोड़ती है।

अंत में उसकी तपस्या को देख भाभी पसीज जाती है और अपनी छोटी अँगुली को चीरकर उसमें से अमृत उसके पति के मुँह में डाल देती है। करवा का पति तुरंत श्रीगणेश-श्रीगणेश कहता हुआ उठ बैठता है। इस प्रकार प्रभु कृपा से उसकी छोटी भाभी के माध्यम से करवा को अपना सुहाग वापस मिल जाता है। हे श्री गणेश माँ गौरी जिस प्रकार करवा को चिर सुहागन का वरदान आपसे मिला है, वैसा ही सब सुहागिनों को मिले।

करवाचौथ व्रत कथा..

एक समय की बात है कि एक करवा नाम की पतिव्रता स्त्री अपने पति के साथ नदी के किनारे के गाँव में रहती थी। एक दिन उसका पति नदी में स्नान करने गया। स्नान करते समय वहाँ एक मगर ने उसका पैर पकड़ लिया। वह मनुष्य करवा-करवा कह के अपनी पत्नी को पुकारने लगा।

उसकी आवाज सुनकर उसकी पत्नी करवा भागी चली आई और आकर मगर को कच्चे धागे से बाँध दिया। मगर को बाँधकर यमराज के यहाँ पहुँची और यमराज से कहने लगी- हे भगवन! मगर ने मेरे पति का पैर पकड़ लिया है। उस मगर को पैर पकड़ने के अपराध में आप अपने बल से नरक में ले जाओ।

यमराज बोले- अभी मगर की आयु शेष है, अतः मैं उसे नहीं मार सकता। इस पर करवा बोली, अगर आप ऐसा नहीं करोगे तो मैं आप को श्राप देकर नष्ट कर दूँगी। सुनकर यमराज डर गए और उस पतिव्रता करवा के साथ आकर मगर को यमपुरी भेज दिया और करवा के पति को दीर्घायु दी। हे करवा माता! जैसे तुमने अपने पति की रक्षा की, वैसे सबके पतियों की रक्षा करना।

To all LPG Users


To all LPG Users

1)Please close the regulator valve on the cylinder in addition to switching off the valves on the stove
.

2)never use any spray when the fire is on

You may like to read the details(two mails ) below to get convinced

Dear Krishnamurthy, 21st Oct. 2013.

Received your mail. The Gas Stove is the most dangerous gadget in a house. Yet 99% of housewives appear to be unconcerned about the dangers lurking in the Gas Stove. They invariable operate only the valve on the stove, and leave the valve on the cylinder open. That means the gas under full pressure is present throughout the rubber tube. These rubber tubes are made by dubious small-scale firms in and around Delhi. They know how to put an ISI mark on the rubber tube, with or without the connivance of the concerned officials. Even a good rubber product has a working life of only 5 to 8 years. One of the rubber tubes that we used failed within 6 months of purchase. Fortunately, the cracking of the tube was noticed in time. But, in many homes, the rubber tubes are hidden from view. So, the only safe procedure is to close the valve on the regulator also, as soon as the cooking is over. Yet, 99% of housewives are not prepared to do this. They would rather take the risk of a fatal accident. So much so, such fatal accidents continue to occur once in a while. Let us keep praying that such accidents do not happen in our home!

.

A word od caution from rom a LPG Distributor:

Being a LPG distributor, I thought it my duty to bring to your notice a freak but relevant issue especially for urban families on thissafety issue.Pl advise family members not to use any spray near fire sources. Most of the sprays use LPG as volatile solvents because of it’s evaporation property.

IF YOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY….

This is a shocking episode that happened on 13th May 2011 in Pune. This may be a good, useful lesson in safety for all of us. A housewife died due to burns sustained in the kitchen. Her husband too was hospitalized for injuries due to burns while trying to rescue his wife.

How it happened:-The gas stove was on and cooking under process. The lady observed some cockroaches near the sink and grabbed a can of insect repellent and sprayed it near the gas stove, which was on. There was an explosion and in no time the poor woman was covered in flames, sustaining 65% burns. Her husband rushed in, tried to douse the flames and his clothes too caught fire. The husband still in hospital, in the burns ward, still unaware that his wife was declared dead on arrival.

Let us understand:-All insect repellents such as "Hit", "Mortein" etc. have highly volatile and inflammable solvents. The atomised nano spary particles spread extremely rapidly and one spark is enough to ignite this explosive mixture with oxygen present in air. Did the poor lady realise the hazard involved? Apparently not!

Please educate your family about this and spread the word around….

who knows you may save more than a life….

Indian Secularism


Are we not ashamed of being bigots and hypocrites?

10 shades of Indian secularism

1) In India, with 80% Hindu population, and the only homeland of Hindus in the world, the birthdays of great sons of the soil, Shri Ram and Shri Krishna, are not compulsory central government holidays, while the birthday of Saudi Arabia born prophet Mohammad and both the birth and crucification day of Bethlehem born Jesus, are compulsory holidays throughout India. This seems in sync with the secular hypothesis that Ram and Krishna are imaginary comic characters while Mohammad and Jesus are actual historical characters. There are only 2 Hindu holidays out of compulsory 14, in contrast with 4 Muslim ones.

2) The Constitution of India enables the government to take control of Hindu temples and trusts and appoint its nominees in their controlling body and even control its funds. The government doesn’t have this privilege for the mosques or churches. The government cannot interfere
in the functioning of the mosques, madarsas and any minorityinstitutions even if they receive government aid, which is taxpayers’ money. The minority institutions are not bound to comply with the Right to Education act either. This can be seen as a lighter version of Pakistan and Bangladesh’s enemy property laws which enable their governments to confiscate the propeties of Hindus by declaring them enemy properties.

3) Everyone knows that India doesn’t have uniform civil code. Indian muslim males are legally allowed to have up to 4 wives at a time, and can divorce them by saying ‘Talaaq’ thrice, in compliance with Sharia. Hindus and Christians have to follow proper court procedures to file
for divorce. The women right activists who organise ‘slut-walks’ to celebrate their ‘rights’ and advocate girls visiting pubs, do not speak on this matter. Shah Bano case stands as a glaring example of how secularism is a constitutionally prescribed drug meant only for Hindus, not for minorities.

4) Prayagraj, one of the holiest pilgrimages of Hindus, is called Allah-abad. Kashi, Ayodhya and Mathura, each of these 3 holy sites has been desecrated and yet not fully restored. The signboards of Aurangzeb road in Delhi stand as the testimony to India’s slavery that Indian secularism celebrates so profusely. In 2007, over 1 lakh Indian muslims paid homage to Aurangzeb’s tomb on his 300th anniversary,that’s when Aurangzeb is known to be the perpetrator of the largest Hindu genocide ever. Aurangzeb had even got Guru Teg Bahadur beheaded in his court for his refusal to convert to Islam.

5) An instance of Indian secularism is the 1978 directive to NCERT which instructs it to erase all medieval history which paints a picture of clash between native Hindus and invading muslims in that era. Consequently, we have a chapter each from Akbar to Aurangzeb, but Shivaji and Maharana Pratap are squeezed into a paragraph each in history books. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, discredited Aryan Invasion Theory is still taught in Indian schools. The historybooks do not cover the Mahabharata despite a plethora ofarchaeological evidence available to conclusively establish itshistoricity.

6) The Archealogical Survey of India in its annual report of 1924-25 published a long list of Hindu temples demolished during Islamic rule. Sita Ram Goel, Arun Shourie and others have published a book after conducting research and they’ve given a 64 page long district-wise list of Islamic monuments which were constructed by demolishing Hindu temples. This list, in the book, "Hindu temples – what happened to them", includes around 2000+ temples and gives in most cases, the year of construction of those structures also. Even in Kashmir, hundreds of temples, small and large have been desecrated over during the exodus of Hindus in early 90s. The same, however, is a non-issue in larger secular polity. It’s continued unabted in whichever time or space, Hindus have become weak.

7) From Ram Mandir to Ram Setu and to Bhagwad Geeta, all have been dragged into Indian courts. India is the only country in the world where the faith of 100 Crore people is humiliated. It’d be silly to look for parallels where in a Muslim majority country, Quran or the prophet, or in a Christian majority country, Bible or the Christ, could be dragged into a court of law. In India, the central governmentfiled an affidavit in the Supreme Court suggesting that Ram never existed. In the same country, Christian missionaries openly preach about Hindus’ false and characterless’ gods, and so do Islamic missionaries like Zakir Naik, but the tag of ‘hate-monger’ has been attributed to Hindu right wing by secular luminaries in media and otherwise.

8) There are numerous government schemes which are run exclusively for the benefit of minorities at the expense of taxpayer money, despite an apparent prohibition to the same in the constitution. Pashchim Banga government paying monthly stipend to all the Imams of all the mosques in the state is a glaring example of this. The same is not extended toHindu pujaris. The Haj subsidy, against which the Supreme Court finally ordered, which had been running since Independence even when no other country, not even Pakistan offers it, is another example.

9) The pious Human Right Activists, known for their love for Jihadi terrorists, those who have been runningjusticeforafzalguru.org for years now, have not spoken for the inhumane treatment meted out to Sadhvi Pragya, and Swami Aseemanand. Their love for those displaced in Gujarat riots, their sympathy on crores of Bangladeshi infiltrators and their disgusting silence and aversion on lakhs of Kashmiri Hindurefugees and Pakistani Hindu refugees is another jewel of the muddled waters of Indian secularism.

10) The practice of Saraswati Vandana has been discontinued from almost all government events with the rise of secular fanaticism. The TV series Chanakya of 90’s was asked to remove Saffron flags from it. Its being indispensable to the picturaization of Chanakya’s Akhand Bharat notwithstanding. Doordarshan’s ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ had also been removed before being brought back. Off late, even the practice of lighting a lamp has been criticised as ‘unislamic’. A litigation was filed in Gujarat high court for inaugurating a room by breaking a coconut for its being a Hindu (not Secular). A case was lodged in Chennai High Court to prohibit the employees celebrating festivals in office space. The beast of secular fanaticism has gone wilder over the years, and if not us, posterity will have to bear the brunt of our callous ignorance.

How to get rid of Back pain easily


Subject: B A C K P A I N

Easy and Effective Back Exercises

Back pain is one of the most persistent, chronic pains we must deal with in our lifetime, and we’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t had to deal with them from time to time. That is why it’s important to work on the right areas and muscles that not only prevent muscle pain by lowering the stress on our back and lower back areas of the spine, but also help to alleviate the pain that comes with it.

Here are 4 simple yet effective exercises you can perform a few times a week to protect your back in the present and in the future…

The Bridge

1. Lay on your back, feet on the floor, knees bent, legs slightly apart, at the width of your hip.

2. Clench your buttocks and lift it upwards, slowly, vertebra by vertebra, until you get to about shoulder height.

3. Count slowly to 3 and slowly lower yourself, vertebra by vertebra, while keeping your stomach muscles clenched.

How Much: Do this 10-12 times for a complete session.

What it does: This exercise neutralizes the daily stress the spine deals with. It stretches the muscles that bend the thigh and stengthens the back stabilizers and the lower back muscles. Also, it works your stomach muscles to keep your balance and keep more pressure off your back.

Note: Remember to be patient and go slow.

The Ox

1. Stand on six (hands, knees, tip of feet) touching the ground, knees at hip height, your elbows a bit bent, your palms at a height with your shoulders. Keep your stomach tight but don’t move your back of twist your hip.

2. At the count of 3, raise opposite hand and leg to a horizontal level and keep them there for 3 seconds.

4. Slowly and patiently, raise that time up to 10 seconds. Add a motion of raising and lowering your opposite hands and legs, while keeping your stomach tight and your elbows locked.

How Much: Repeat this 6 times for each side.

What it does: Strengthens your core muscles, strengthens the area of the shoulders and the stabilizing muscles, improves on posture and coordination – to help the spine perform day to day activities such as walking, running, dancing or carrying.

Side Position
back pain exercises

1. Lay on your right side in a straight line, legs continuing the line of your main body. Lean on your arm, while you make sure the elbow is at a straight line under your shoulder.

2. Clench the stomach muscles lights and gently lift your hip from the floor.

3. Hold this position for 20-40 seconds (according to your progress) and gently lower yourselves (no dropping down!).

How Much: Do this 3 times for each side.

What it does: The exercise builds up the strength and stamina of the stabilizing muscles, strengthening your waists and lower back.

Forward Lunges

1. Stand up straight and put your hands on your waists.

2. Make a lunge forward, while bending the knee on the forward leg to 90 degrees and bending the knee on the back leg until it comes close to the floor.

3. Again, do NOT hurry. Do this slowly, and remember it’s important to keep stability, no wobbling. Keep your stomach tight.

How Much: Do this 8-10 times for each leg.

What is it good for: The exercise improves the body’s posture and strengthens your control of your core muscles. This is key to protecting the spine while walking, running or climbing stairs. The exercise uses all the important stabilizing muscles.

Tip: Try to get to a stage where you can actually touch the floor with the knee of your back leg.

How stock markets work


Enjoy…..

It was autumn, and the Red Indians asked their New Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a Red Indian chief in a modern society, he couldn’t tell what the weather was going to be.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his Tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared.

But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked ‘Is the coming winter going to be cold?’

‘It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed,’ the weather man responded.

So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood. A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. ‘Is it going to be a very cold winter?’

‘Yes,’ the man at National Weather Service again replied, ‘It’s definitely going to be a very cold winter.’

The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of wood they could find.

Two weeks later, he called the National Weather Service again.

‘Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?’ ‘Absolutely,’ The man replied. ‘It’s going to be one of the coldest winters ever.’

‘How can you be so sure?’ the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, ‘The Red Indians are collecting wood like crazy.’

This is how stock markets work!

OH Shit


You learn something everyday!

Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure was quite common.


It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can imagine what could (and did) happen.

Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern…… BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction’ Stow high in transit ‘on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved the term

‘S.H.I.T’, (Stow High In Transit)

which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day..

You probably did not know the true history of this word. Neither did I.

I had always thought it was essentially something to do with POLITICIANS…
