India News Live: " Building Bridges ",India News ,23 Sep, 2010
Whether it is the Healing touches in Kashmir, the countdown to the Commonwealth Games, 2010 in Delhi, India or any other event news..the Global Press needs a 'pat on the back', for their 'round-the clock' endeavour. For people living in remote areas or for 'common' people like us, who have not had an opportunity to 'travel', this is the only 'window' to the outside world !
We from the Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh, would like to thank all the political parties for their collective sincere effort to bring in peace for the People of Kashmir. It goes without saying that without the Global Watch of the 'Media' the world today would not have an insight to 'Reality' !
We have faith that the Global Community of Media will always work together in bringing 'constructive' changes in Human society !

India Taj News.." Eid..A Day of Compassion !", 2010.
India News Live: " A Prophet's Dream ",India News ,07 Sep, 2010
Eid ul Fitr, also known as Ramadan Id, is celebrated by Muslims across the world, at the end of the month of Ramadan. It signifies the breaking of the fasting period, with the sighting of new crescent moon in the evening, on the last day of Ramadan.
The significance of Id-ul-Fitr stems from the special meaning it holds for the entire Muslim community. Legend says that Prophet Mohammad had laid down Eid ul Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha as days of rejoicing and feasting for the Muslims, in the remembrance of Allah !
Another important aspect of Eid ul Fitr lies in the distribution of charity on the day. Every Muslim who has some means must pay Zakt-al-Fitr, a sum to be donated for the month of Ramadan, to impoverished Muslims. It can either be in the form of cash or basic foodstuff, including wheat, barley, dates, raisins etc. It is done to spare a thought to the plight of the poor and is different from the normal Zakat, which is given to purify one’s wealth. Holy Quran recommends giving donation to the poor on this auspicious day, the best time for which is before going to the mosque in the morning, to offer prayers.
Id-ul-Fitr is also a festival that fosters brotherhood and interactions, as people visit each other on the days of festivity. Friends, relatives and loved ones are greeted and offered sweets. Some scholars also believe that the month-long fasting is undertaken to acknowledge the superiority of the spiritual realm over the physical realm. Nevertheless, the spirit of conviviality surrounds the celebrations of Eid ul Fitr throughout the Islamic world.
"A good word is like a good tree whose root is firmly fixed and whose top is in the sky."..Holy Quran.
**We wish our dear Brothers n Sisters, "HAPPY EID, 2010 !" and may Allah bring Peace and Prosperity to all !

India Taj News.." Modern Bargain Stories !", 2010.
India News Live: 'My Punchline..Say Goodbye to Sweets!,India News ,July 25, 2010
Love is the best ground for negotiation while, the best bargains in life are made by the heart and not by the head. There is many a belief that bargaining is part of modern day relationships while, the truth is this instinct is as primitive as Man himself.
One day we received a peanut bird feeder from a friend in UK with a message," to save the bird feed from the dogs ". Much amused, we put this feeder on the branch of the guava tree. While our Indian sparrows showed no interest, the English grey sparrows flocked and started feeding. There were many learning lessons for the young Indian sparrows and most importantly for us. Without the refill of the peanuts, numerous times in the day, the gracious English sparrows refuse to delight us with their chirping presence.
Morning lessons taught to us by our pet dog, who carved his way into our hearts as a stray puppy, are even more enlightening. My early newspaper with my morning cup of tea is not delivered by our young 'news boy', if by chance we have run out of sweets..so much so on a rainy day, a delivery is followed by an expectation of a bonanza treat for all the hard work done!
Truely, much before us, animals learnt how to foster a relationship into permanence, where their love is often unapproachable without a price-tag !!
India Taj News.." Killing the Tiger Inside You !", 2010.
India News Live: 'My Punchline..Say Hello to the Tiger'!,India News ,July 19, 2010
The world today is an oyster, processing global change in its constant growth. 'Change' is an ongoing life-style, where each one of us can contribute to a healthy environment by the daily lessons of life.
Sit in your garden one day and learn the most basic lesson of survival from the camouflaging colors of the smart 'chameleon'. We cannot change the world..but, we can change ourselves and in doing so we create a Universe where all creatures blend in harmony !
The ever diminishing tiger population today, reflects the victory of the 'animal within us', which urges us to greed, conquer and control. For conserving the valuable flora and fauna of Mother Earth, we first need to save the human being within us. That 'human' which does not preempt us to meet each other with the bared fangs of a tiger, but which binds the Universe with Love , Hope and Care !
It is only when we open our hearts to compassion, we knock on the doorstep of 'divinity'. In doing so we gift to ourselves the precious treasure of a shared Universe, where in lies the path of 'immortality' !
