A tea garden in India, amazing green. All the way green till end of the horizon. Very Mesmerizing.
A small steps toward long journey …..
Many books written over a period of time, explaining this of that, here and there but today there is a need of “Re-Discovery” of India as we all always hear that the Indian history is manipulated or tampered or part of Mythology.
As mention in Manu Smriti “An elephant made of wood, dear made of leather and Brahmin without knowledge, those are three having nothing but the names (of their kind)”
Same way history which was tempered or changed due to some influences is a waste, it can’t be used as a base of Nationa’s Culture.
Great philosopher Chanakya says:
पुष्पे गन्धं तिले तैलं काष्ठेऽग्निं पयसि घृतम् ।
इक्षौ गुडं तथा देहे पश्यात्मानं विवेकतः ॥
“Flower’s scent, oil in seed, fire in wood, ghee in milk, sugar in sugarcane and soul in the body are not seen from outside.”
Same way history from others and culture from books can’t be written or taught.
If I want to improve the condition of my home, then I have to take initiative first, no one from outside will know about my home or will get it better.
Chanakya further says:
गतं शोको न कर्तव्यं भविष्यं नैव चिन्तयेत्।
वर्तमानेन कालेन प्रवर्तमन्ते विचक्षणाः।।
Repenting on something that has happened in past would not help anything, same applies to the Future as well. So it’s always good to live in the present that will also brighten the future… … … … …
In other lines Chanakya mentioned:
यो ध्रुवाणि परित्यज्य ह्यध्रुवं परिसेवते।
ध्रुवाणि तस्य नश्यन्ति चाध्रुवं नष्टमेव तत् ।।
One who leaves something certain to achieve the uncertain loses the certain the thing always takes well care of things that are in your hand and don’t lose them to get something that is uncertain.
I agree we lost our history & culture I agree do we lost our ancient knowledge. Crying what we loose doesn’t give it back so this is the right time when we have to take a step back and think about how we can gain it again, I know this is very hard way and there are multiple obstacles in it but I do believe that we can bring real Indian history to its full bloom.
Today we are talking about the lost city of Delhi which is now only a ruins. This is Lal kot and then converted into Quila Rai Pithora.
Ravan is said to be born in small village Bisrakh this village is situated in near Ghaziabad. He spent his childhood in this village that founded by his father Bisesvara.
He was a devotee of LORD SHIVA and was so powerful that even the 9 planets called Navagrahas were overpowered by him and rendered inactive.The story goes that he was in the kingdom of the Lord but was cursed to take birth in the world and get killed in the hands of the Lord to attain salvation.
The Ravan is so powerful and he controlled 32 corers of able-bodied demons, this is clear in his own words.
दश राक्षस कोट्यः च द्वाविंशतिः अथ अपराः |
वर्जयित्वा जरा वृद्धान् बालान् च रजनीचरान् || ३-५५-१४
तेषाम् प्रभुः अहम् सीते सर्वेषाम् भीम कर्मणाम् |
Coming back to village Bisrakh it is mentioned by many villagers that till date they don’t celebrate Dussehra and it is also banned to have rope dancers (नट) in the village.
We to find out what is the behind the story told by villagers and come to know one strange thing that it is true that whenever villages tried to have Dussehra or rope dances in the village there are mishappening happened in the village and due to this reason they stopped celebrating the occasion.
Some other lesser know facts about Ravan:

After starting the journey to explore India, the biggest problem I seen is people asking a question what you are going to get out of this, whats the benefits and so on?
Unable to sleep from multiple nights thoughts coming like bang a big bang questions hitting me very hard where I am heading towards, to whom I am going to meet in this journey, is it going to be fun and ease to reach people or places at this moment the answer to all this is “No Idea”.
No Idea, and I mean it that I really don’t have any idea.
One of my team member asked me if you don’t have any idea then how you are going to lead?
Answer to this is a noble cause to find truth about India a mother land which always given us without demanding back anything, so we have to return back…
I don’t know how much you agree but yes this is what I am looking forward for to earn a respect for our culture and country.
