Happy Birthday Dhoni – One Man Kit of Army

happy birthday MS Dhoni

Happy Birthday Dhoni! I am being a big fan of MS Dhoni (Mahendra sing Dhoni), a cricketer and compassionateness at the bottom of heart. I am not a regular cricket watcher, nor I play cricket. However, as long as I can remember, I played cricket with my high school friends for the sake of sharing their joy with them. They used to love it, many times I thought about it that where are the nerves of cricket hidden inside me? Or every so often I feel that God might have not incorporated into my veins.

I grew up watching cricketers like Kapil Dev, Saurabh Ganguli and Sachin Tendulkar. However, when I left my village and came to Pune in 2006 when I had just finished my matriculation. In The city, I was searching for a job and complete my further education. A new face, (Mahendra sing Dhoni) I saw. His surname means hit, and ultimately, he became famous hitting balls continuously sixers and all that what audience wanted.

Today, Dhoni turned 41 on Thursday, millions have wished him on social media. His special place in my heart as same as others have in their hearts. Through the video, Dwayne Bravo  who sang a song which had achievements of Dhoni and many other cricketers have wished him on his birthday. Dhoni was born in Ranchi. However, his father, Pan Sing Dhoni was born in a village, crowd of 20 to 30 families, his ancestral and cousins still live there in the village, it is called Lwali. He is a heart of cleanness and purity, there is no bargaining, politics and partiality in his sacred place. His work was all to his dedication and full of motivations. His career started exactly when my struggle began. He joined Indian cricket team in 2003/4 and picked in the ODI squad and played for the Bangladesh and welcomed in international group of players with his dedication and hard work. What is the most important thing to do on the day one could spend on the birthday? Mahendra Sing Dhoni was spotted today in the crowd of Wimbledon stadium celebrating his day with his favourite people and friends.

His work was recognizable in 2007 World Cup | A Man of the Match innings

Mahendra Sing Dhoni was all set to play for the world Cup 2007, his unpredictable work left the audience in awe. His continuous hits gained excess of 100 in both the series. However, India was out of the world cup after losses to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, he and his family faced mental trauma from the local politicians. The house that Dhoni was constructing in his home-town, Ranchi, was damaged by political activists.

Therefore, he did not lose his concentration, he put his aim forward and received the man of the match scoring 174 runs in 3 matches.

Rise, Rise, and Ranks

In the year 2009, Dhoni again shine through series of play between Australia and India. One hundred twenty-four runs in 107 balls in the second ODI and in the third ODI, Singh achieved 71 runs in 95 balls. He also proved, he was ahead of Yuvraj Singh's 78 balls and his 96 balls… Thus, India had won the ODI by six wickets. Though the journey, he had an excellent year in ODIs in the same year. However, 2015 was approaching, and he was all set to create a record and history. In the 2015 World Cup, Dhoni became the first Indian Captain to win the stage matches in the tournament. India had won against, Pakistan, South Africa, UAE, West Indies, Ireland, and Zimbabwe.

The Most Expensive Player

Indian Premier League, also called as TATA IPL. It was founded in 2007, it is a professional men's Twenty20 cricket league. The three Indian states and teams based out of seven Indian cities. The IPL usually happens in March and May every year. MS Dhoni, considered the most expensive player contracted by Chennai Super Kings for US $1.5 million. However, the wise decision by CSK proved his talent by winning the 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021

The Man of Magic

His playing style as different and difficult comparing to traditional coaching. Most of the payers say, he is an unorthodox batsman. He hardly used to follow batting techniques at the standard coaching levels. However, being a captain, later he developed his new style to deal with high-pressure scenarios. He was the one who taught the world name, “Helicopter Shot” However, the technique was taught him by his childhood friends, but he who brought it to live. Once again, Happy Birthday, MS Dhoni, stay fit and live longer.

Internal and external communication: Rare but True How Human behave

group of man on a desert

My experience of meeting strange people, internal and external communication and learning how they introduce to internal and external environment of human behaviours are strange but wonderful. It happens most of the time with everyone. However, mine was something behind friends like no one could imagine that how a strange turned a best friend.

Strange but true when we have internal and external communication with strangers

I was travelling back to Pune by train from my long holiday spent at my native place. While see off, my parents were so unhappy as they used to see my face once in five months or may be a year. Traditionally, they came with me to the broken, roofless bus stop of our village to give me a final goodbye of the month.

My backpack and a sack in my left hand were the companion for the rest of the day. I wouldn't know that someone in the journey I would meet my enemy and later a friend. I kept murmuring my favourite song and kept watching those greeneries of the farms through the window of the rickshaw. Continuous burping due to heavy lunch and alternate bumps as it is an everyday story of Indian supper duper roads. Those bumping were realizing my native existence and old days. As well as, sending away incoming sleep back.

Therefore, I arrived at the railway platform on time and stood in the queue waiting for the train in the crowd, wiping my sweat. Looking around, I could guess there were many other students on the platform waiting for the same train. However, none of them were looking for me as well as, each one of them were not talking and looking each other. Furthermore, instead some of them busy playing snake game on Nokia mobile in the crowd. Some others were speaking with their parents, and the rest of them were watching the moves.

I heard a siren and instant announcement, “Nagpur Pune superfast Express is arriving shortly” almost everyone got altered, started to inquire about the train with each other. However, others, including girls, were hearing what others are saying. I checked my ticket and stood near the allocated coach stop. I was waiting to see if I can make any friends before I climb the train. However, I found no one interested. But what happened later, you won’t believe that when I got on the train.

The train arrived, I was climbing the train, while my shoulder smashed on one of the passengers who was descending in hurry.

“Hey you! Aren't you aware that I am going down? Wait a moment.” He cried and gave me a hard look.

“I am sorry!” I politely said and waited for a moment to let him go.

Further, quickly settled on my allocated birth. I was feeling better and feeling comfortable since I was in the train. The AC was on and every person from Vidharbha are lovers of cold in the summer. When I turned my eyes around, I could see all familiar faces around my birth. It was evening and everyone were sitting on the lower birth, mine was the middle one. Now it was time to come up voluntary and be a conversation starter. But the question was: Who will break the silence?

I caught a glimpse of the same friend who was cried on me. I named him the strange friend. Surprisingly, he smiled when our eyes met. I returned him back his short and sweet smile (I could realize he gave me back my sorry). Half an hour passed looking here and there, hearing the conversation of the others and supporting on the jokes etc.

Furthermore, I felt hungry, looking at the others who were having dinner. I, too, pulled out my tiffin and made myself comfortable and waved my hand at my strange friend who was sitting opposite to me. At the starting, I found him hesitant, however, I again invited him to give me company and upon my request, he agreed. He came back with washed hands and sat beside me for dinner.

We had spent quality time discussing hobbies, interests and many other things. We exchanged our mobile numbers, we had also known each other’s native place and the current address of Pune. It sometimes takes long, but we become good friends in the journey. It takes times. However, I realized that how internal and external environment are interchangeable. Only chirping people can adjust into such environment and make their journey as fun-loving.

I am also confident that you must have very fantastic railway journey and there would be many friends in your contacts until now. However, I believe that this is one of the places where we meet many strangers. Some other people kept themselves calm and quiet throughout the entire journey. However, they aren't certain that we always get help from friends only. Therefore, if you haven’t yet encounter with such strangers in the journey, when you travel next time, make sure you have at least one.

We arrived to Pune in the morning at 09:45 am. We both got down, shook hands and promised to meet on weekends.

After ten years of friendship, still today, we go for shopping together, do weekend parties and many other things. Somewhere we have to overcome internal and external environment of the human behaviours or nature will balance it automatically. We are the same, but for sometimes we have to handle the situation mindfully.


Unlock How spice money rise money, Only when you are not

person putting coin in a piggy bank

Do you really value your time, efforts, and spice money to rise them all? All you need is analytical skills before the time slips away from your hands.

Time is money as everyone knows that

We all know the time is equivalent to money. Every day we are rushing when we travel because we travel when there is a requirement. Even in the world of technology, we often failed to manage the time, instead there is no reserved time for us.

When we have a car, we covered the distance of thousands of kilo-meter in two days. However, in the past, we used to do it in more than ten days by walking. Though we go to office late, or we ride our car furiously and finely met with an accident. Is it spice money, or we do it to rise in money?

What happens when there is loss of time

We got a habit of not analysing the things before our actions. Furthermore, The result of this habit of not analysis, it cost us more and end up wasting of money.

Take an example: Though we are having a vehicle, we divert our journey from the long way and find a shortcut. That shortcut could save our time almost 1 hour of extra journey. Therefore, without analysis, we go by that route which was not well constructed. Thus, we end up repairing our car for puncture and that could also result in heavy damage to our car.

To put efforts in action, It requires more time

Suppose, one engineer spent his ten years to build a high average fuel car. However, that car only carries two people. The pick-up of the car is not that impressive. If he was working and focusing on average of the car, not on the pick-up, then after spending ten years of his life got wasted.

The efforts and time both are interlinked, they work together. As well as, we also have to keep in mind that without them, the life does not work well together.

Not knowing exactly what right or wrong

Most of the people know what to do and what will outcomes from the things they are doing. They mostly don't focus on what is right or wrong, instead, the foremost thing is to know what is correct. We make friends and soon falls in love, main thing here is we fail to understand the right person because we don't analyse the things.

Later what happens? We regret our decision. We go through loss of the time and try to put our efforts to sustain the relationships. What is the thing that I am going to talk exactly here is about our brain. It has the power to identify what is wrong and what is right. Everyone has a good amount of brain. However, it is different part, that we don't use that on the time (on time). If we have used that on the correct time for analysis we could have saved that time, money, and extra efforts we have placed together to spice up the money, and rise them.

My Journey By Train: Unforgettable Lessons You won’t Believe

silhouettes of anonymous people standing on railway platform

There are so many lessons and memories with my journey by train since I have left my village and started living in metro city.

I can say there are good and bad memories. One of them was travelling back to village on the occasion of diwali. I still remember, it was a day ago diwali begins, and I was travelling from Pune to Nagpur by “Nagpur Pune Express train”. I had no reservation and I took reservation coach ticket with 51 awaiting list. Therefore, I was left with the option of only unallocated birth.

Always remember, never do it if you are travelling with family. Though I was alone and with one of my friends. I had one bag full of clothes. Therefore, I was so curious to go back to my village after my four months of living alone from my family for the first time in my life.

My Journey By Train

That day, I understood that one should never go by train without a reserved train ticket. However, I was not alone. I could see many students of my age, some of them were a newly married couples, grandparents, and others were middle age people travelling alone without their partners. They were with luggage including their baggage.

The train was still there and everyone was waiting to start their journey. All the clothes of the  passengers were wet and their armpits were stinking so badly to vomiting. I was standing in such a position that I couldn't move them freely. Therefore, my face was just an inch away from the chest of a tall man. If I move left, I could only see a bag heavily loaded, tied on an unknown chest.

I was seated on my bag and was eagerly waiting to release the train from the station. I heard the first whistle. Oh, god! I utter and took a long deep breath of stink. Probably thinking it would be the last breath at this station. There were countless station with this rush and I. It was a long journey of 15 hours. I was hungry a bit. I did not take any snacks. Furthermore, I thought I will get it at the first station as I love eating at the railway station stalls.

As the train started moving, and the wheels were railing to squeal to get speed, everyone including me got relaxed and sweat-stinking soon gone away. I could also feel that after few stops, everyone got relaxed space to move freely around. The chattering of the people was too loud and unable to hear someone standing ten feet away. The other was calling loudly to check his luggage, and the next seat couple went on chatting and laughing. When I look at my bag, it was torn, “this  journey costed me of another 1000 bucks.” I thought. However, I was quickly certain that I am not going to get a place to sleep tonight after glanced over the entire coach.

I had my blanket from that, what I did you won’t believe. I made a swinger as my bed for the night. Therefore, I tied two corners of the blanket at middle birth and other two corners to the opposite side birth and formed a cradle. A baby of a year-old get swings in India. I had my dinner and then grabbed my swinger around 10:30pm, took out my mobile and headphone and started listening to songs.

My Journey By Train has disturbed many times like this

A sudden bump wake me up. It was TT (ticket examiner) came in the middle of my sleep around 12:45 asking me for the ticket. My sleeping eyes lifted the left heavy eyes and in another second both clearly could see him pointing his hand toward me asking for the ticket. I saved myself from another catastrophe by thank god that I was not without the ticket. I heard many people were travelling without a ticket. Furthermore, I lifted my bony butt and withdrew the wallet, showed him. A small torch guided TT and I owned the ticket but not a birth. Therefore, he went into another coach.

I was enjoying the cold air through the open window. Furthermore, soothing my discomfort and the temper due to no birth allocation. The wait was just to reach the destination safely. My sleep was disturbed, and another second, my phone was a companion. As soon as the phone backlight (screen) flashed on the face, and before I put the headphone on, I heard a voice. My brain analysed it was a 22 to 26-year-old female with annoy tone.

I hid the mobile phone under my chest and look up straight. “Yes?” I utter. All the other passengers were asleep and few of them were snoring. I thought she must have boarded when I was sleeping. “How can you sleep in front of a girl like this?” My legs were pointing her legs. Her tone cooled down and soft when we see each other’s face.

“I did not get to confirm birth. Hence, I had to do this desi juggad.”

She smiled. “It is really a number one juggad.”

“Where do you stay?” She continued


“Which collage?”

Our conversations kept continued, and a sudden one passenger came and asked her to get out of his birth. She was not a confirmed passenger. We both looked each other and laughed. I reached home safely without another troubles later in that night. Further, I decided that I should book the ticket in days advance to avoid such life incidents. However, the life teaches us something new and important in such types of journey. Therefore, it comes must travel without ticket or reserve seat. I mate my friends and celebrated diwali very well that year. There are many such journeys, my journey by train gives me smiles or sometimes silent.


Causes of air pollution: Best Results from Air Pollution

air air pollution chimney clouds

Air pollution is a major source of worry not only in India, but across the world. The causes of air pollution that we may learn from and employ to lessen air pollution. The key sources of worry about air pollution are listed below, and if we can control these, we will be able to achieve our goal.

Causes of air pollution

  1. Ongoing Road and Building Constructions.
  2. Farm Debris on Fire.
  3. Factory Smokes.
  4. Heat Waves (tree cutting).
  5. Wildfires.
  6. City Transportation.
  7. Burning of Garbage in Open Space.

Ongoing Road and Building Constructions

In India, everywhere and in every city there is ongoing road and building construction is continuously running. Therefore, they need hundreds of trucks to load and unload the building materials. Those trucks travel from minimum of 100 km up and down. While in transport, they litter the materials on the clean road, make them dirty.

However, we can achieve this in reducing the air pollution. When we stop these activities from December to May, we can reduce air pollution. During this period, summer starts and the ongoing construction are one of the prone source in contributing to the pollution. If these things happen in a bit greeny, rainy and fresh environment. There are fewer chances of spreading off in the air.

Farm Debris on Fire

Most of the farms became empty, probably when harvesting done and all the debris from the thousands of farms around the city set on fire. In most of the Indian farms like sugarcane farms, beans generating farms (like soybean, yellow split pigeon peas, other lentils, and cotton yield farms) burns the leftover, debris. Instead, the farmers dump all the debris in the dry water well and leave it to decay, so it will be easier to convert them into vermicompost.

Factory Smokes

The factory smokes emission is second measure contributors to air pollution. To reduce the smoke, 90% is impossible, but we can filter the emission of carbon from the smoke by placing the smoke filter so that we can reduce or control on getting the air affected.

Heat Waves

Heat waves due to climate change is also considering one of the cause of air pollution. It happens due to increase in temperature in the surrounding by emission of smoke from the vehicles, factories, debris burning etc. The other measure cause of heat waves are from wildfire. Therefore, let's discuss how we can prevent the wildfire.

Prevent Wildfires

We have to consider few things to avoid the wildfire, it mostly happens due to some ignorance of human too. When we go out for camping, build your campfire away from combustible and only in the open space. Furthermore, in the forest, do not leave the place without dowse it until it is cold and complete wet. Moreover, never keep your vehicles into the dry grass areas. It could catch fire and chances of spreading the flames rapidly. Therefore, keeping a fire extinguisher handy when you go camping.

City Transportation

Today’s main interest about the air pollution is vehicles, and it is all over the world. It is we that producing tons of carbon in the air and making the air impure every hour. Now it has gone beyond the reach of nature to control it. It is the time now we have to focus on air pollution. The government of all the world has decided to give subsidiary for those who are buying electric vehicles. These vehicles are emission-free and are the standard origin of reducing the impurity from the air.

Burning of Garbage in Open Space

Burning garbage is not a solution nowadays, instead increase the pollution. We can get excellent biodegradable in returns from the kitchen waste. Organic matter that includes leaves, food scrape from the kitchen and mostly useful for composting. All these things turn into valuable fertilizer, which would help ultimately enrich the soil and get magnificent result in farming.

Furthermore, read how health is wealth is the Only greatest human blessings and why it is considered a blessing.

Health is wealth: The Greatest Human Blessings

adult beanie crisis despair

On the current corona epidemic, the majority of people, whether I say human or smart human, failed to get both excellent health and money. People learn a lot about how health is wealth.

It was the time when people got and understood that they did not care about their health recently. I heard from many people that china is the one who was the first country who spread the virus and eating Chinese food, brought up our health issues. How much it is true? Only the public knows it very well. A kid also know that eating fast food like noodles, fried rice on the street never been good and healthy for our lifestyle. This essay talks on health is wealth and covered advantage and its disadvantage.

Health is wealth it is an ultimate truth

Most of the people have adapted this new habit of eating fast cooked food as people are running for only money. They talk and eat, they run and eat, they work and eat. There is hardly a time fixed for eating. Overeating due to good taste, however, that food might take several hours to digest, but no one cares. Public also eat late night and food which are not allowed in the nighttime. Occasionally, the man reads the health and wealth related paragraph online and just leave it pursuing.

Bad habits of eating food which are less cooked, adding unwanted sauces to the food and more acidic to body does loss of appetite of the person. These forceful circumstances happen due to we have less time. Mostly when a person goes to office and don't take a tiffin with him. This affects a lot on health, and thus it causes spending money means impact on wealth. It actually defines well as the health is wealth. However, its supper defines when you're caught in a bad health situation and that time, you have to spend a thousand of money to hospitals.

We should limit on eating fried foods, which causes terrible impression on our health and its related issues. It is a similar like one who creates a new food products, the same person opens the hospital for its cure. So, it automatically doubles up his earnings. However, what about we middle-class people who earn to meet the daily expectations hardly? And it's quite difficult to get their health card for free.

We must focus on health first, then on earnings as it comes early and then your job. If you are not healthy, you will not perform your duty well. How do we focus on our health and its issues? It is very normal, eating fresh food and on time, however, quality meal is a key success to convert health into wealth. Therefore, only through this way, healthcare is possible. Everyone gives a speech on health is wealth, but he himself does not follow every time.

One of the Quotes on Health is Wealth

Health is the greatest of human blessings


The health issues will arise simply when we are careless about our health and actively aware about wealth. When we are hungry, we should not eat whatever is available. Therefore, wait and get good food rather of focusing on our hungriness. This is a first step involves primarily and caught in a bad health situation incidents. Never purchase foods which are not fresh and uncovered. Those foods include snacks, which are easily available everywhere. A lot of dust passes over the food.

Eating the food late night left undigested in the stomach and causes excessive gasses, and it may lead to diarrheas and other constipation. As well as, the meal which has highly spicy and oily should be avoided.

Overeating is nowadays one of the trending issues. People eat more due to its good taste. However, we should eat one third of its total available space inside our stomach and the remaining only water. The more water in the body helps digestion and keeps away stomach issues at the bay.

Conclusion: Health is the first and prime important aspect of our life, and it always comes first thing in our period of time. It is the greatest blessing than the other things. Money may or may not buy health, it has proved in the Covid-19 as many people has lost the lives.


My neighbours: You must get reliable ones in Life

a man sleeps on a table with a bottle of whiskey

There are maybe many types of experience from your neighbourhood, but my neighbour is unique, and very difficult to judge. However, these are the sweetest as well as bittersweet experiences.

Some of them are like the movie character, Totoro, and the other won't be able to sleep you the entire night. Therefore, you will learn how turning these paragraphs will understand why I am right and wrong sporadically.

For our life, we first select the area for living, and foremost, we look at our neighbours. Thus, so often, they become god and keep helping each other and the families. However, sometimes they behave cruel when money and power meets together. Therefore, choosing who are our neighbours are one of the most important factors of our living being.

Nobody should get people like My neighbours

I live in the area where my neighbours are of two different types. One was hard and the other soft in their behaviours. We learn from both types of people. I am talking about them  when I was a kid. Every night the hard family used to be dunked and shout a loud around in the verandah. Thus, they used to abuse every alternate day without any reasons.

The family was unafraid and always ready for the game of dare and dangers. The other neighbour used to keep themselves away from any matter of concerns. We used to keep our window closed and doors and gate shut. This used to cause chaos around the one who has recently got married, and the society got a new member in the family. It was a public shame to hear such abusive language.

On the other hand, the soft family used to ignore them and do the same thing our family used to follow (shutting the house to ignore abusing language). You must be thinking that what I get or a new learning from this hard family. From his kid's bad habits, I used to learn for occasionally. However, those bad habits used to bring a strength in me when any guy used to mess with me.

Furthermore, soft-spoken family were also too useful in learning. When I used to involved in the fight of someone else, I used to cooling down the fight between the other guys. Thus, I used to get power remembering the bad family members. And, overcome my weakness by wining the hearts of the family, from whom I became very understanding guy (soft family influence).

Both the family were important equally. But when I read about the great Chinese philosopher, Mengzi. When he was a kid, and to get a quality environment, Mencius’s mother moved three times. It means she has changed the place of living three times to find a better and quality neighbours.

However, the life consist of two things, bad and good, and happy and sad. Therefore, no one has escaped from this life cycle. Thus, I believe that both good and bad, which yield happy and sad life get posted to everyone from the account of god. The rules of almighty and nobody breaks free from it.

Furthermore, when I talked about the life cycle, one of the poems of Rumi from the book “The Masnavi” taught me different state of soul of every living being on the planet earth.

[…] I died to the mineral state and became a plant,

I died to the vegetal state and reached animality,

I died to the animal state and became a man,

Then what should I fear? I have never become less from dying.

At the next charge (forward) I will die to human nature […]

Therefore, neighbours are always good and bad, and they must exist around us and they always helpful for us in some other form. Thus, we should keep spreading love among them always. Both the form of nature of neighbours are essential at the end in the need. What are your thoughts on your neighbour's life, do not forget to put in the comment box.

Sindhutai Sapkal: Maharashtra’s Pride and 1 mother of Orphanages

When the name Maai was uttered in Maharashtra, the only face that the entire state could see was Sindhutai Sapkal's.

Sindhutai Sapkal is a Modern Savitribai Phule

The lady who faced countless encounters of deadly days and nights, and crossed the many paths in life in difficulties. Sindhu, the lady who taught others to live with pride and do hard work.

Today, Sindhu became an icon of inspiration to millions of Indian women. She has given many lectures not only in Indian colleges but also travelled overseas to get her kids two times foods. Therefore, her name is next to thousands of orphanages and got them married to their favourite life partners, before making all of them well-educated and independent. Hence, Sindhutai Sapkal (14 Nov 1948 – 4 Jan 2022) is called a modern Savitribai.

Daughter of a Cow herder-Sindhutai Sapkal

Her life had ocean of difficulties, however, from such events only suicides results. But, it was Sindhu who gathered her countless courage to live her life further, probably to become the mother of thousands and more orphan children. It is true that some heavenly power was with her, perhaps the power of orphanage.

Sapkal always wanted to be an independent woman and hence Sindhu, born on 14 November 1948 to a cow herder (Gavali caste – the one who do business of cow and its by-products). It was exactly one year after India got independence. The cow herders usually travel village to village and live in outskirts along with cows while doing business along the way.

During those days, the majority of the women considered no longer for education, the prime work of the women was to handle household chores and work on the farm with their husbands. However, if someone interested in education, was forced to quit due to financial burden of the family.

Thus, the same thing had happened to Sindhutai Sapkal. She was forced to quit her basic and formal education when she did her schooling until 4th class. Furthermore, it is true that the pressure of intelligence couldn't hold any other pressure.

As soon as she stopped going to school, Maai got married to Shrihari Sapkal, he was 32 and Sindhu was 12 years old. Shrihari was 20 years older than Sindhu, leaving her with no options but to accept her fate. The adoption of newly married life involves leaving aspirations and dreams behind. However, Sindhutai Sapkal continues to make new beginnings with her husband.

Sometimes, upon going against the family, badly beaten up by her life partner, it becomes an alternate or sporadically a habit of weekly practice. All women seek happiness and blessings when they get married. Therefore, in terms of Sindhutai Sapkal, the name “happy” was like a guest appearance at her door. She was almost crushed to death, the marriage was not to last longer. The reason was simple. She was one of the beautiful ladies in her village in adulthood.

The President, Shri Ram Nath Kovind presenting the Nari Shakti Puruskar for the year 2017 to Dr. Sindhutai Sapkal, Pune, Maharashtra, at a function, on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, at Rashtrapati Bhavan, in New Delhi on March 08, 2018.

The couple had their first kid with some ups and downs. But, when Maai conceived the second child, a dark smoke of misunderstanding came in between them which extended to getting them separated. Furthermore, the story of her life became so difficult to live that she had no food and home to live.

Stragic life of Sindhutai Sapkal

Sindhu was thrown out of the house, blaming her, carrying a child of someone else (at the age of today’s undergraduate girl). All that happened during her labour time. She lived in a cowshed, cut the umbilical cord by pelting it with a sharp stone, and gave birth to a baby girl. Thus, she turned her pain into the pleasure of motherhood, which converted her misery into a joyful smile, as well as giving a fresh meaning to life.

She proved an adventurous mother, carrying the roles of a doctor and patient both successfully. Furthermore, she accommodated herself around the same village, keeping a hope of acceptance, but betrayed. She lived on a burial place (Smashan Bhumi - where Hindus do rituals of the corpses). She cooked the Bhakari (foods) on a burning dead body, fed her soul and lived there for some time.

Sindhutai considered her daughter Mamta (second child) came to with full of strength and power for her. Inspired by her real series of breathtaking events, Sindhu had decided to live for Mamta and many other kids (orphanages) as a mother. If she did not dare to give birth to Mamta, she could have killed her baby. Eventually, she became mother of thousands of kids.

Poem on the life of Sindhutai Sapkal

Never underestimate the power of a mother,
One, who was a daughter, made her husband a kid in her ashram,
She was the one-stand woman like gadar.

She was born a common village girl,
Sindhu lived alone days in the jungle,
Being a pregnant and craving for hunger.

During pregnancy, Maai did not approach a phone or call a doctor,
Sindhu was the patient, doctor, and the real life actor.

For her adventures and braveness, everyone hats off.

She decided to be a parent of homeless and become motherly wall,
Dedicate the entire rest of her life for orphanages, that's all

Maai, her work and memories will never die,
She will return in another form,
This time with more rigor, strength to fly high.

युगांतर: गांधीजी एक क्रांतिकारी युगपुरुष

इंग्रजाच्या जुलुमशाहीला, त्यांच्या बेबंदशाहीला संघटीत ताकद आणि वाणीच्या जोरावर भिडलेला हा महात्मा खरच एक महान व्यक्तिमत्व होते. याने इंग्रजाच्या जागतिक दर्जाच्या फौजेला केवळ आपल्या लाठीच्या ताकदीच्या जोरावर नमवलं. ते मुळात एक आध्यात्मिक व्यक्तिमत्व होते, त्यांचे हृदय मोठे होते, म्हणूनच त्यांना महात्मा म्हटले गेले. पण यामुळे देश आणि समाजाच्या समस्यांपासून त्यांनी कधीच दूर पळ काढला नाही. देश आणि देशवासियांबद्दल त्यांचे प्रेम आणि आपुलकी होती. त्यांनी इंग्रजीचे शिक्षण घेतले आणि ते त्या वेळी परदेशी शिकलेले बॅरिस्टर असूनही, त्यांनी मायदेशी येऊन त्यांचा संपूर्ण रंगढंग बदलला. रहाणीमान बदलत 'टाय-कोट संस्कृती' सोडून त्यांनी फक्त एक धोती अंगीकारली. इतिहासातील सर्व परकीय आक्रमणामुळे फाटलेल्या या देशात पसरलेल्या अगणित संस्कृती, रियासत एकत्र करून गांधीजींनी त्याच राष्ट्रीय अभिमानाने भारताची पुनर्रस्थापना करण्याचा प्रामाणिक प्रयत्न केला. म्हणूनच आपण त्यांना राष्ट्रपिता म्हणतो.

     केवळ देशातच नव्हे तर मार्टिन ल्यूथर किंग आणि नेल्सन मंडेला सारख्यानी परदेशातही महात्मा गांधींनी महात्मा गांधींना आपला आदर्श मानले. तथापि, त्यांना अगणिक टीकेलाही सामोरे जावे लागले; त्यांना आणि त्याचे योगदान पूर्णपणे संपवून टाकण्याचे प्रयत्नही झाले. पण गांधीशिवाय भारताचा इतिहास लिहिणे शक्य आहे का? कदापि नाही, किंबहुना भारतीय स्वातंत्र्य लढ्याचे अहिंसात्मक नेतृत्वच त्यांनी केले असे म्हटले तर वावगे ठरणार नाही.

गांधीयुगाची पाश्वभूमि

गांधी युग: 1919-1948

आधुनिक इतिहास
मोहनदास करमचंद गांधी (जन्म: 2 ऑक्टोबर 1869; मृत्यू: 30 जानेवारी 1948)

 महात्मा गांधी म्हणूनही ओळखले जाणारे हे निर्भीड व्यक्तिमत्व, 9 जानेवारी रोजी दक्षिण आफ्रिकेतून भारतात परतले. 1893 मध्ये दादा अब्दुल्ला या भारतीय मुस्लिम व्यापा-याचा खटला लढण्यासाठी ते दक्षिण आफ्रिकेत गेले. तिथे त्याने भारतीयांशी भेदभावपूर्ण वागणूक पाहिली. एकदा जेव्हा ते दक्षिण आफ्रिकेत ट्रेनने प्रवास करत होते,त्याच वेळी मेरिट्झबर्ग नावाच्या स्टेशनवर, एका इंग्रजाने त्याला ट्रेनमधून ढकलले. या घटनेतून गांधीजींना नवी दिशा मिळाली. त्यांच्या दक्षिण आफ्रिकेतील मुक्कामा दरम्यानच गांधीजींनी भारतीयांबद्दल स्वीकारलेल्या वर्णभेदी धोरणांविरोधात संघर्ष सुरू केला. त्यांच्या चळवळीला संघटनात्मक आकार आणि दिशा देण्यासाठी त्यांनी नेटल इंडियन काँग्रेस, टॉल्स्टॉय फर्म (जर्मन कारागीर मित्र कॅलेन बागच्या मदतीने) आणि फिनिक्स आश्रम अशा अनेक संघटना स्थापन केल्या. दक्षिणेतच गांधीजींनी इंडियन ओपन नावाचे वृत्तपत्रही प्रसिद्ध केले.

गांधीजींनी भारतीय राजकारणात पदार्पण

     गांधींच्या दक्षिण आफ्रिकेतील चळवळीच्या यशस्वी आचरणाचा परिणाम म्हणून, तेथील सरकारने 1914 पर्यंत बहुतेक भेदभाव करणारे काळे कायदे रद्द केले. गांधीजींचे हे पहिले यश होते जे त्यांनी अहिंसेच्या मार्गाने मिळवले. इ.स.1915 मध्ये भारतात आल्यानंतरच गांधीजींनी भारतीय राजकारणात पदार्पण केले. महात्मा गांधी गोपालकृष्ण गोखले यांना आपले राजकीय गुरु मानले. यावेळी पहिले महायुद्ध चालू होते आणि गांधीजींनी या युद्धात ब्रिटिशांना साथ दिली आणि भारतीयांना सैन्यात भरती होण्यासाठी प्रोत्साहित केले. या कारणास्तव त्याला 'भर्ती सार्जंट' म्हटले जाऊ लागले. ब्रिटिश सरकारने त्यांचा केसर-ए-हिंद या पदवीने सन्मान केला. पहिल्या महायुद्धातील सहकार्याच्या बदल्यात भारतीयांना स्वराज मिळेल, असा गांधीना विश्वास होता. गांधीजींनी 1915 मध्ये अहमदाबादमध्ये साबरमती आश्रमाची स्थापना केली. या माध्यमाने सर्जनशील कार्याला प्रोत्साहन देणे हा त्याचा हेतू होता. भारतीय राजकारणातील प्रभावशाली नेता म्हणून गांधींचा उदय, उत्तर बिहारचे चंपारण आंदोलन, गुजरातचे खेडा शेतकरी आंदोलन आणि अहमदाबादच्या कामगार वादाचे यशस्वी नेतृत्व केल्यानंतर हे घडले. चंपारण आणि खेडा चळवळ शेतक-यांच्या समस्यांशी संबंधित असताना, अहमदाबादच्या कामगारांच्या वादाच्या पार्श्वभूमीवर कापूस कापड गिरणी मालक आणि कामगारांमध्ये वेतन वाढ आणि प्लेग बोनस देण्याबाबत वाद झाला. अहमदाबादमधील प्लेग संपल्यानंतर गिरणी मालकांना बोनस रद्द करायचा होता. गिरणी मालकांनी केवळ 20 टक्के बोनस स्वीकारला आणि धमकी दिली की जो कर्मचारी हा बोनस स्वीकारणार नाही त्याला कामावरून काढून टाकले जाईल. 35 टक्के बोनसच्या कामगारांच्या मागणीला समर्थन देत गांधीजी स्वतः संपात सामिल झाले.  या संपूर्ण प्रकरणावर न्यायाधिकरणाने कामगारांच्या मागणीला न्याय दिला आणि 35 टक्के बोनसचे आदेश दिले. या गिरणी मालकांपैकी एक गांधींचे मित्र अंबालाल साराभाई होते, ज्यांनी साबरमती आश्रमाच्या बांधकामासाठी मोठ्या प्रमाणात आर्थिक योगदान दिले. अहमदाबाद कामगार चळवळीत अंबालाल साराभाई यांची बहीण अनुसूयाही गांधी यांच्यासोबत होती.

गांधींचे आदर्श, तात्विक विचार, विचारधारा आणि जीवनपद्धती

    सत्याग्रहाच्या सुरुवातीच्या प्रयोगाच्या यशाने गांधीजींना सामान्य माणसाच्या अधिक जवळ आणले. गांधींचे आदर्श, तात्विक विचार, विचारधारा आणि जीवनपद्धती यांनी त्यांना सामान्य लोकांच्या जीवनाशी जोडले. ते गरीब, राष्ट्रवादी आणि बंडखोर भारताचे प्रतीक बनले. हिंदू-मुस्लिम ऐक्य, स्त्रियांची सामाजिक स्थिती सुधारणे आणि अस्पृश्यते विरोधात काम करणे ही त्यांची इतर मुख्य उद्दिष्टे होती. इ.स.1919 च्या जालियनवाला बाग हत्याकांडाने ब्रिटिश सरकारप्रती गांधींचा दृष्टिकोन बदलला आणि तद्दनंतर या सरकार विरोधी संघर्षाचे 'गांधी युग' सुरु झाले.

    उच्च विचार आणि साधे जीवन हेच त्यांना सर्वात प्रिय होते, जर संघर्ष असेल तर हिंसा का, एक मेकाच्या रक्ताची तहान का या माणसाला, असे ते म्हणत. बापूंकडून शिकलेल्या प्रत्येक गोष्टीचा योग्य मार्ग आहे, ज्या विचाराने क्रांती आणली ती गांधीवादी होती. तो एक विचार असा की, तुम्ही शेवटी केलेल्या अत्याचाराला कंटाळताल आम्ही जुलूम सहन करू पण आम्ही हात उचलणार नाही, हीच ती गांधी निति, गांधी विचार, आणि गांधीवाद म्हणून ओळखला गेला. परन्तु परिणामत: क्रांतिका-यात जहाल आणि मवाळ मतवादी अशा गटात विभाजन झाले. नेताजी सुभाषचंद्र बोस, भगतसिंग आणि राजगुरु यांच्या जहाल मतवादाचा अंतर्गत सामना बापूजी यांना करावा लागला. धर्माच्या नावावर मोहमद अली जीना सारख्या धार्मिक कट्टर पंथियाचा मुकाबला त्यांना करावा लागला. याचे पर्यावसन म्हणून धार्मिक दंगे सोसावे लागले. जनतेला अनेक हत्या, अत्याचार यांना सामोरे जावे लागले. धार्मिक व भौगोलिक फाळणी सोसावी लागली. याचे सर्व पातक, राजकीय रोष गांधीजीला पचवावे लागले. याच पुजनिय बापूजी (महात्मा गांधी) च्या स्मरणार्थ ही हिंदी काव्यपंक्ति!

राष्ट्रपिता तुम कहलाते हो सभी प्यार से कहते बापू,
तुमने हमको सही मार्ग दिखाया सत्य और अहिंसा का पाठ पढ़ाया,
हम सब तेरी संतान है तुम हो हमारे प्यारे बापू।
सीधा सादा वेश तुम्हारा नहीं कोई अभिमान,
खादी की एक धोती पहने वाह रे बापू तेरी शान।
एक लाठी के दम पर तुमने अंग्रेजों की जड़ें हिलायी,
भारत माँ को आजाद कराया राखी देश की शान।

गांधी सारखे लोक मरत नाहीत

[rb_related title="Also in This Issue" total="2"]

त्याच गांधींच्या देशवासी, तथाकथित एका राष्ट्रवादी म्हणवीणा-याने देश स्वतंत्र होताच त्यांचा जीव घेतला. हा कसला राष्ट्रवाद आहे! केवळ वैचारिक मतभेदामुळे एखाद्याला जीवे मारणे ही आपली संस्कृती कधीच नव्हती. मात्र "गांधी" सारखे लोक मरत नाहीत. गांधीजींना हवे असते तर ते त्यांच्या हत्येची घटना टाळू शकले असते. सरदार पटेल यांनी त्यांना आधीच याबाबत चेतावणी दिली होती. तसेच आवश्यक सुरक्षा व्यवस्था करण्यासाठी परवानगी मागितली होती. पण गांधीजींनी यास नकार दिला. कारण त्यांचे मते हे नंतर त्याच्या चारित्र्याला व विचाराला कमजोर करेल, जे त्याला कोणत्याही किंमतीला मान्य नव्हते. जीव देऊनही नाही. महात्मा गांधी त्यांच्या मृत्यूपर्यंत ते त्यांच्या चरित्रात राहिले, आणि ते चांगले अबाधित राहिले. म्हणूनच तो एक "महात्मा गांधी" आहे. ते विलक्षण आहेत, ते विलक्षण आहेत कारण इंग्रजांच्या सैन्य शक्ति, कूटनीतिचा मुकाबला त्यांनी सहनशक्तिच्या विलक्षण ताकदी च्या जोरावर केला. अहिंसा, उपोषण, आंदोलन या विलक्षण सोशिक नितिचा अवलंब केला, जे की संपूर्ण जगताला नाविन्यपूर्ण होते. नंतर ते जगाचा 'गांधी आदर्श' म्हणून आजपर्यंत अबाधित राहिले. मग हाच आदर्श अवलंबून अनेक जागतिक, अनेक राष्ट्रांचे अंतर्गत प्रश्न सुटले. म्हणूनच गांधींसारखा कोणी एकच महान व्यक्ति शतकात एकदाच जन्माला येतो, एक युगांतर…. आणतो. मग याच गांधीवादाचा, याच गांधीनितिचा अवलंब आपण वैयक्तिकरित्या, तसेच अनेक सामाजिक व राजकीय समस्यांमध्ये का करू नये.

The Life Before & After Marriage

The marriage is a Devine or Wine. It is an immortal bond between the two soul and body. However, one should know how to run it. It is the same way, the way we have to first learn how to ride a bike. Therefore, without the knowledge, it becomes wine.

The feelings of being a married man.

If I talk about, how do I feel being a married man? There are many things. Consequently, unpredictable happiness is such a huge that it can't be told in the few words. Everyone has their definition, but this is mine. It was a day when I was working in the office and a thought came in my mind that doctor gave us due date 5th of Jun. 2017 to my wife. And I have to take leaves on those days and I had already told to my boss those tentative dates (baby delivery), but I was not that cautious enough. Those days were the starting of the relationship, unknown feelings of being fathering and husband. Many times laughing, I told my wife that I will make delivery of our baby at home (the old man's brain) and my wife including my mother and her mother laughed too.

Left those days when women deliver the baby at home.

We both were curiously waiting for our baby and other family members, including my parents. They were thinking that there is a boy coming home. But somewhere in my mind, a feeling of a daughter was holding the nerves tight. I remember, except me, no one was ready to believe that there was a baby girl breathing through the intestine of my wife. There was a reason behind that, in our family for many years first was a baby boy and then again a baby boy and third child used to be a girl from the last two generations.

Establishing the connections with wife

When I got married I was so happy choosing a girl by my father and I had told my father that I would love if you take a pride choosing a girl for me. And I also told him that I give you two year for this. And if you were unable to find the one, then let me handle this. I knew that it was a fair deal. In India, no father wants getting married his son/daughter without the permission of the family, especially it happens in love marriage. This is what I love India because we featured the great heritage. So, coming back to the point, how I had established the connections with my wife? Let me tell you first, though it was arranged marriage, we both fell in love when we saw each other for the first time. And our wedding date was almost two months late, and within those days our bond became so strong and with the cords wrapped around it of all the feelings. So, we both had such understanding that took place so smoothly after we got married.

Expectations and plannings after the knot

The expectations and planning are everyone's first things after the wedding, none of us that much lazy avoiding it. We both had many expectations too for each other and future planning. We were mad about our planning, like every night before bed our plans were changing like the wind shifts in any direction. It was that sudden as the dark cloud on the head disappears in a second and gives sunlight and vice versa.

My expectations from my wife were as simple as that, as like an old Indian married woman living their life. Neither was I looking for a wife who would be working in office nor simple one who behave and stands in military order. I was the one who wanted a wife who would be so romantic and stay at home. As well as, bear children, take care of them and be a good coach for our children's future so that she/he shouldn't forget our cultures which were living in both of us existed from many years. This was what I can say was planning. If I talk about my professional life, there was much planning, which I will discuss in my next blog.

Understanding level of the couple

When I was a child, I came to know that understanding plays an authoritative role in our life. If you don't understand your parents, then there won't be a love bond between family. One positive thought would bring much good understanding between us, and I used to do that. Hope and patience would help better in understanding in any couple. Thanks to God, that he has given me such good understanding parents and I inherited it. I always remember an old saying that “As the tree, so the fruit”. And I hope it inherits in my child too.

The Cares and Love in marriage

If you want to survive last longer in any relation do not forget two things that are love and care. In my case, as far as in my childhood I was a lovely and cute boy and the love which I got from my family was tremendous. And what I have learned from them was the exceptional experience and those learning would help me survive my relations with my loved ones. The things that had taught me by my parents and in the society where I lived is a simple mantra.

If you smile, in return, you will get the same.

One successful mantra

In my married life too, if it brings in the notice that this dose have been less, then I increase it. When I became a father, the love and care rose spontaneously. There will always be fights between husband and wife, and that is required to survive the relationship. Therefore, it reminds you to understand the value of Love and Care, somewhere you realize, run for it and bring the situations back to normal.

Yelling and joking in married life

I learned it from my group of friends, when yelling and joking sometimes make an irate friends happy. However, it sometimes also worsens the situation. That’s what we need to keep in mind. When there is any fight between us and the responsible one yells and jokes. We had already decided to overcome the anger by a sweet joke. I knew the anger is the biggest enemy of the human being. It is the only one who bodge the life of someone.

Hobbies, Like and Dislike

One thing surprised me, that was our hobbies, like and dislike. They were the same. But only one thing brought in the notice that she does not bring her hobbies to life. I believe that it is hobbies that give us a meaning to our life. She likes to help me find a joy in my hobbies. However, her interests are also the same. Occasionally, we ended with a fight if the things won’t work properly.
