Her Supressing Passion

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

She awaited,  awaited for more than a decade, awaited for the right person to understand her emotionally and physically, a dream of indulging into a lifetime mating. Years and years passed by,  she never came across any man who could touched her core,  who had the same amount of passion,  who had the same belief of spiritual intimacy!

“And then, as if written by the hand of a bad novelist, an incredible thing happened.”
Jonathan Stroud, The Amulet of Samarkand

A very quite man, a writer and a thinker **(at least she beliefs) have been observing her for many months, written poems on her without her knowledge. And several months later that engrossed her.  She started believing his passion, passion towards her. As if her bridles going to be released,  going to be sprouted. As if she her buried passion going to get a new life. Alas!

He was not just into her completely, not even periodically. He had been carrying many other pride moments with other women from his  past. She sighed!

No, she will never believe in her dream again. And she allowed herself to surrender her physical body to entertained by a man whom she couldn’t associated with dream of emotional polarities (a divine sexual energy of men and women). She didn’t wait for the right person anymore,  but she created that dream by her own.

20 Motivating movies of Bollywood in last 2 Decades

Movies can be a wonderful source of inspiration and motivation, as some of them can help you to change your mindset quickly into a more positive one. When movies are able to spark the interest to apply their message in real life, it was well worth watching them. The movies in this list are ranked by the average score they received from critics, but also by their potential to motivate and inspire. However, something that is by far more important than a movie’s popularity is its ability to get you motivated.

1. Airlift

In 1990, Saddam Hussein-led Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait rendered over a lakh Indians residing there homeless and scurrying for cover. Thanks to a handful of Indian businessmen and their swift thinking, each of them was safely evacuated from the war zone and brought back to India.

2. Bhag Milkha Bhag 

The truth behind the ascension of Milkha “The Flying Sikh” Singh who was scarred because of the India-Pakistan partition.

3. Baghban

The movie Baghban a big slap on so called modern era. I watched it because it’s let someone know their parents feelings. What they feel at the age when they need their children most and the children are ignoring them. They really portrait the old age parents feelings.

4. Chakde! India

This movie is a real story about Mir Ranjan Negi, for whome life had become a nightmare. The 7-1 defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the 1982 Asian Games final had brought unprecedented humiliation for India in a sporting arena. The nation went into a mourning and Negi into hiding.

5. Dasvidaniya

“Dasvidaniya” a marvelous movie, which takes you on a journey of self. A roller coaster of emotions. Every moment matches the mood. The detailing is in sync. Music by Kailash Kher leaves a lasting impression. Check out ‘Alvida’ and ‘Meri Maa'”Dasvidaniya” is a bittersweet comedy about a man diagnosed with cancer and how he spends the last three months of his life.

6. I am Kalam

This movie is an epic story of a kid who believes that fate and fortune is nothing. It’s only karma that has the power to either make you or break you. A refreshing movie full of hope and joy.

7. Lagaan

The movie tells the purportedly true story of the little village of Champaner in 1893 in India. Next to the village is a British cantonment. A narration sets the stage. The British have played one rajah off against the other and demand draconian taxes in agricultural goods and services called lagaan from the villages they protect from the inter-tribal warfare they instigate. Compounding the lagaan problem, rain has not fallen for months.

8. Lage Raho Munna Bhai

The movie has had a strong cultural impact in India, popularizing Gandhism under Munna Bhai’s notion of Gandhigiri. As noted by critics, the film has “stirred the popular imagination,” leading to a number of Gandhigiriprotests in India and in the United States: “For generations born after Gandhi’s assassination, Munnabhai, the eponymous hero of the film, has rendered “Gandhism” passé and “Gandhian” arcane.

9. Lakshya

Noble is not a word that’s easily applicable to mainstream Hindi cinema – not when so much of it is about having a good, if not a sleazy, time.

But here’s a rare, refreshing, path-breaking film that is as noble in intent as it is in treatment.

An aimless, jobless, irresponsible grown man joins the army and matures into a battlefield hero. “Lakshya” is really about one individual’s odyssey in life from embarrassing idleness to redeeming self-motivation. This epic transition is achieved through layers of illuminating leitmotifs — the wonderful soundtrack by Shankar-Ehsan-Loy for one.

10. Manjhi: The Mountain Man

Using only a hammer and a chisel, a man spends twenty-two years carving a road through a treacherous mountain.A real story about a man who cut through the mountain to build a way for his fellow villagers to get faster to the hospital across the mountain. While being laughed at earlier, he eventually showed every one of us the power of strong will and commitment.

11. Mary Kom

The biopic, as is clear by now, is about MC Mary Kom, a five-time boxing world champion and Olympic bronze medallist from India. With the support of her husband Onler Ko, the boxer, who was once considered down and out, made a comeback to win two major medals. The episodic demonstration of Kom’s obstacles, including a father who objects to her boxing, a vengeful sports federation and an ill-timed pregnancy, seems rather breathless.

12. Nil Battey Sannata

Released in India on 22 April 2016. It received critical acclaim and was positively received by the audiences as well. Reviewers praised most aspects of the production, with particular emphasis on its narrative, realism, and performances of the cast.

The film stars Naya Theatre company member Omkar Das Manikpuri as well as Naseeruddin Shah, Raghubir Yadav, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Shalini Vatsa and Malaika Shenoy along with a number of newcomers.

14. Queen

Queen is an ignorant Delhi girl who finds herself on a ‘honeymoon’ all by herself after her fiancé cancelled the wedding just one day before the event. What happens along the way forms the crux of this sweet, sensitive, fun social drama.

This movie is the kind that will work to make you a better human being, minus the lecture 🙂

15. Rang De Basanti

Six young Indians who assist English Woman to film a documentary on the extremist freedom fighters from their past, and the events that lead them to relive the long forgotten saga of freedom. Two lines… the past and present run together.

** Though the  film’s controversial ending, where the protagonists gun down corrupt politicians, has been perceived as fascist.
Rationalizes Director of the movie  “Every story has to follow its own course. When heroes in a mythology enter the caves to fight the demons, they’ve to perish.

16. Rocket Singh Sales Man of the Year

Recent college graduate Harpreet Singh Bedi, who was an average student but very high on ethics and principles grows increasingly disillusioned with his job as a salesman while struggling to reconcile his professional ambition with his true heart’s desire. Harpreet may have been an average student at best, but his infectious optimism and penchant for dreaming could prove the key to finally realizing his dreams of success.

17. Swades

This is a story of an idealistic NASA engineer, Mohan Bhargav, who decides to go back to his village to enable change.  In the village, idealism meets reality.  What seems like a simple problem a priori turns out into a major project due to the powerful social forces at work.  Mohan’s attempt to create a village school is a typical example.  Since upper-caste kids are not used to mingling with lower-caste kids in the classroom, this turns out into a project about caste relations.  Mohan ends up visiting the homes of villagers to motivate them to send their children to school.  Over time, Mohan overcomes many of the hurdles in his way and shows the villagers the power of science.

18. Taare Zameen Par

How can one not love a movie about children crafted with utmost compassion – children with special needs at that? But, it is not the only reason I liked Tare Zameen Par.  This is about a child who suffers because no one around him recognizes that he is a slow learner. The beauty of the narration is that the message applies to all children – learning disability or not. How can creativity not deserve a place in academics? It also points a very subtle finger at how we build conformation in our system right at the roots.

19. The legend of Bhagat Singh

It is one of the finest movies of Indian film history.The film shows the lifetime of great freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.The film depicts his life,his struggle and his determination brillantly..The film not only shows the freedom fighter’s struggle,but also his ideologies and his idea of a progressive nation and how he moved the entire nation. The photography,the script,the dialogues(power packed and very thought-provoking)everything about this movie is splendid.A lot of research has gone into making this film.

20. 3 Idiots

Shaming on Indian education system, 3 Idiots is actually an eye-opener for every Indian parent, who pressurizes their children to pursue a career in Engineering or Medicine. The movie dictates the most important lesson of life that says, “Educate yourself to improve your abilities, not to be successful because once you are able, success will come along at any circumstances.”

Over the past ten years, Sharon Hayes has been engaged in an art practice that uses multiple mediums—video, performance, and installation—in ongoing investigation into various intersections between history, politics and speech. Her work is concerned with developing new representational strategies that examine and interrogate the present political moment, not as a moment without historical foundation but as one that is always allegorical, a moment that reaches simultaneously backwards and forwards. To this aim, she employs conceptual and methodological approaches borrowed from artistic and academic practices such as theater, film, anthropology, linguistics, and journalism.

 

Kitchen of a Yogi

“To eat is necessity but to eat INTELLIGENTLY is an art”

“And he knew that food was Brahman. From food all beings are born. By food they live and into food they return”. – Upanishad 3.2

Manu, Jesus and Buddha exhorted the people to refrain from using liquors, intoxicants and drugs as these are deleterious in their effects. No spiritual progress is possible without abandoning them.

Pythagoras seems to bewail when he says: “Beware, O mortals, of defiling your bodies with sinful food. There are cereals, there are fruits bending their branches down by their weight, and luxurious grapes on the vines. There are sweet vegetables and herbs which the fire can render palatable and mellow. Nor are you denied milk, nor honey, fragrance of the aroma of the thyme flower. The bountiful earth offers you an abundance of pure food and provides for meals obtainable without slaughter and bloodshed.”

Yoga diet principles play an important part in getting full benefits from your yoga practice. Why do sportsmen and pregnant women need special food? Our body requires food for getting energy and this energy sustains life. Food is what builds up our body, we are what we eat. Type of food and its quality affects your physical as well as mental health.

Diet is of three kinds :

Sattvic diet,

Rajasic diet

Tamasic diet.

Live a natural simple life. Take simple food that is wholly agreeable to your system. You should have your own menu to suit your constitution. You are yourself the best judge to select a Sattvic diet. In the matter of food and drink you will do well to eat and drink as a master. You should not have the least craving for any particular diet. You should not become a slave to this food or that food. Simple, natural, non-stimulating, tissue-building, energy-producing, non-alcoholic food and drink will keep the mind calm and pure and will help the student of Yoga in his practices and in the attainment of the goal of life.

Vegetarian diet has been acclaimed to be most conducive to spiritual and psychic advancement. It has been found that meat augments animal passion and decreases intellectual capacity. While it is true that meat-eating countries are physically active and strong, the same cannot be said of their spiritual attainments. Meat is not at all necessary for the keeping up of perfect health, rigour and vitality. On the contrary, it is highly deleterious to health. It brings in its train a host of ailments such as tape-worm, albuminuria and other diseases of the kidneys. Killing of animals for food is a great sin. Instead of killing the egoism and the idea of “mine-ness,” ignorant people kill innocent animals under pretext of sacrifice to goddess, but in reality it is meant to please their own tongue or palate. What inhuman horrible crimes are being committed in the name of God and Religion! Ahimsa (non-injuring) is the first virtue that a spiritual aspirant should try to possess. You should have reverence for life. Lord Jesus says: “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” Mahavira shouted in a trumpet-like voice: “Regard every living being as thyself and harm no one.” The Law of Karma is inexorable, unrelenting, immutable. The pain you inflict upon another will surely rebound upon you and the happiness you radiate will come back to you adding to your happiness. He who knows this Law will not hurt anybody.

Fast Foods

Modern fast food items like hamburgers, pizzas, jams, jellies, soft drinks, ice creams etc. have gained control over our eating patterns and are the main cause of obesity we see all around. These fast foods are rich source of sugar, oils and preservatives all of which are not good for our health. People attracted by various types of fast food which are very low in nutrition. In addition, these foods tax our digestive system and body has to do extra work for digestion and elimination of such food. Everyday we are faced with the choice of selecting our food and we must prefer nutritious food rather than going for the taste.

Look Towards Nature

Yoga diet philosophy emphasises on the natural sources of nutrition. Nature has provided us several nutritious edible foods in their natural form like whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, milk, honey and dry fruits.

Over Eating

More people fall sick due to overeating or wrong dietary habits as compared to people who get sick due to non availability of food. Observe moderation in quantity of food we eat. People who keep on over eating without proper understanding of the principles of eating are bound to harm themselves physically and mentally. One golden rule to avoid overeating is, not to have any type of snacks between your meals.

Balanced Diet

Balanced diet is essential requirement of good health. A balanced diet should include plenty of salads, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, milk and raw nuts. Include these items in your existing dietary choices.

Salads

All vegetables eaten raw constitute salad. Fresh cucumber, tomato, carrots, beetroot, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower etc are used for preparing salad. Salad should be cut into small pieces with suitable dressing of you choice. Ideally salad should form first course of your lunch and dinner. Eat plenty of salad half an hour prior to your meals in case you want to reduce your food intake.

Quantity Of Food

As a general rule, fill only 50% of your stomach with food, 25% of your stomach for water and keep 25% of your stomach empty. If your stomach is overstuffed, it is not properly digested. You will feel uncomfortable and your body is forced to digest extra food and also work for eliminating it. By overeating, your abdominal system is strained and body becomes sluggish. Finally, it leads to gaining of extra weight. Eat only when you feel hungry and eliminate any snacks in between the meals.

Alcoholic Drinks

Alcoholic drinks are nutrient thieves; they steal and destroy nutrients available in your system. Alcoholic drinks weaken the individual physically and mentally, if used without restraint. For yoga practitioners, it is best to avoid alcoholic drinks.

Spices

Avoid excessive use of spices and salt. Too much of seasoning of food is also not recommended.

Water

Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water everyday. Drink water half an hour before meals. Avoid drinking water with food. Drinking of one or two glasses of water when you wake up is ideal for health.

Coffee and Tea

It is ideal if you can avoid tea and coffee completely. Otherwise limit your tea or coffee intake to 2 cups per day. Excess of tea and coffee leads to constipation, insomnia and nervousness in addition to extra calories each cup of tea or coffee pumps into our bodies.

Method of Eating

Eat slowly and chew your food properly. Eating fast does not allow the time for satiating signals to reach your brain from your abdomen resulting in overeating. By chewing the food properly, saliva can better mix with food and make it easily digestible. Body is able to make full use of food you eat and helps you to maintain better health. Principles of yoga diet are time tested and very easy to follow. To lead a healthy life one has to establish a dietary pattern that will sustain good health. Yoga and diet are essential components of good health and happiness. Eat to live and not live to eat.
