25th of Baishak

Kabi Guru Rabindranath Thakur

Hello guys! Today we celebrate ‘Pachise Boishak’. This really is a very important day as is it the birth day of a most unique man- a poet, a lyricist, a writer, one of the most brilliant men who set foot on the Earth- the bday of Rabindranath Tagore. Today even the hot Sun, raising temperature in Kolkata to 40 degree Celsius, can not lower the spirit of men and women. From dawn till dusk I can only hear the Nightingale like voices sing Rabindranath’s songs, recite his poems, love, respect and adore him. Tagore did not only start a new school, wrote brilliant poems and songs, won the Nobel Prize but also started a new culture- a culture of love, brotherhood, freedom and equality. Today I pay my respects to this Bengali legacy by only saying that we are trying to build, we will build the country where-

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by Thee to ever-widening thought and action.

A msg from a Beach!

We r now sitting on a cemented bank before the sea. The waves r rising and falling. I can hear the sound of the restless sea. All the hawkers r moving around us and shouting the names of different products they hv. Nature has been disturbed here by human insanity. This beach is destroyed, robbed out of his beauty. This is a very common state to reach after popularity. Most of the time sea has rebounded, taken its revenge in high fury. This maddening crowd has also taken steps to avoid the sea’s outburst. And thus this beach has been more destroyed.

Who do you live…

Who do you live for?
Myself

These are words of a woman whom I deeply respect and won’t name here. This person has lost all her family one after another. The more she tried to be happy, more the loss fell into her lap. But she did not give up. She wants to live happily. She is living happily. She is presently the CEO of a box manufacturing company with a massive turnover every year. She started with nothing but she has everything- a purpose in life. This is the type of woman Ayn Rand described in her books.

Hail to woman! Hail to life!
