Self-styled godmen and mental darkness

Have you even seen a God in your life?
Since the dawn of human civilization, religion has been running collaterally with human lives. The mammoth question is “Did God made religion?”. A question which nobody in this world can answer for religion of all kinds and hues are made by man only according to his way of life, ambience, way of being brought up and established norms.

Translation of our holy book “Puya” in English : A visionary approach

Youths of the present generation don’t have much fundas about ‘Puya’, the sacred and holy scripture of the Meiteis. So far we only know upto the extent that the Puya was burnt to ashes in the second quarter of the 18th century. It is a known fact that Puya was burnt down to ashes during King Pamheiba’s time when one self proclaimed godman known as Santidas Gosai from Sylhet Bangladesh, a Bengali thoroughly brainwashed the king with his great art and dexterity in toying with chemicals.

A loss that doesn’t heal with time

When I was young I used to gaze at my reflection on the looking mirror to find out whether I looked good or not. During those times the looking mirror was my best friend. I used to watch my image in the morning as soon as I climbed down from bed, after taking a shower, before going to school or college or whenever I was about to go outside be it an appointment with somebody or any other private work, after returning home and even before going to bed. Sitting in front of a looking mirror, preferably a wide and lengthy one was an inseparable constituent of my very existence during those yonder years.

Bruce Dickinson : The “son-rise” of Iron Maiden

For those who can’t live without music, those with music in their blood, those who eat, sleep and drink music, those who draw inspiration from music and more particularly those metal heads who like all kinds of rock genre, this piece of writing may come as an embracing one. Those who loathe music have the liberty to skip reading this piece from the very end of this very sentence.

Holistic education : Trends and challenges

The word ‘Holistic’ according to Webster’s dictionary, is the principle that “Whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. It lays down that the system as a whole should determine how its parts behave. Holistic Education is based on the premise that each person finds his/her identity, meaning and purpose in life through interaction to the community, to the nature and inculcating humanitarian values such as compassion and peace. It is meant to bring a synergetic relationship between developmental areas such as body, mind and soul.

Unlearning is harder than learning

Generally, most of us are right handed since birth. So, higher percentage of works are done more by the right hand for us right handers. That’s why our right hand muscles starting from the arm upto the wrist are usually bigger than our left hands.

If it’s too good to be true it’s not true

If Taylor Swift comes halfway across the world to tell you that she can’t live a second without seeing you, saying that she misses you every single moment, that she wants to marry you, settle together with you, have a dozen kids and lead a happy and merry life with you till the end of time, then what would you do? If I were you, I’d wake up because such a thing doesn’t happen in real life. It happens in dreams only, a sweet dream of course. Likewise when you open your e-mail account and you find that you have become the owner of five crore bucks from a corporate body or an organisation of sort will you buy it? If you do so then you are in fantasy land.

PDS : Proven Deceitful System

It’s heartwarming to learn that the state government has come up with its own Anti-Corruption Cell. Some small fish are being caught in the net of the Cell such as peons, lower division clerks and lower level assistants of some government departments. It is a welcome step anyway. But the people are yet to be convinced whether the big fish who amass crores and crores of taxpayers’ money will ever be caught in the net of the Anti-Corruption Cell and brought to book.

Fatal distractions : Honey I lost the kid

Memories of different kinds and hues come hitting inside our heads every now and then, a biological mechanism for us humans. Some memories are sweet, some are better not remembered. The irony is that the bitter memories which we intend to ignore come kicking inside the brain more frequently no matter how hard you try to block it. Bitter memories can easily tear apart your brain’s firewall and pillage your mental balance like a storm trooper equipped with all the gears to give you higher levels of stress, depression and anxiety. For those suffering from Alzheimers’, it’s a different matter.
