Love is complete when it comprises honesty, sincerity, transparency. How do we express our love towards God is Bakthi. There is no limited way to express this divine relationship. Only truthfulness in our heart and expressing our own way the truthfulness is the love towards God. Few people do some rituals, few visit their divine place, few do chant, few do nothing just feel Him, there r lot more ways people have their own way. The way which make you to feel like you are near to God , is your best way of expressing bakthi. Not compulsory that one should follow other. Bakthi is a divine feeling , that is not a thing comes in compulsion or under force. When its forced and you don't feel reaching Him, then you are satisfiying whom forcing you but you are pretending to Him. Thats not ur originality. Thats not at all ur bakthi. It becomes just another exercise u follow. Our inner self realizes and when its speaking to and being with God, that's Bakthi.
How do we measure one's bakthi? Is there any cutoffs? Nope. It cant be measured. There is no more or less. U believe in God, that's it. How much u believe in God , thats upto ur dedication. Thats ur pure personal. Others cannot estimate yours and you cant , of others. Its beyond comparison.
Ok Now u have bakthi, but do u need to prove it? How do u prove it? Nope, there s no need to prove. You know ur God and GOd knows you! Right? its between you and God. Then whats the necessary to prove ur bakthi to others. And its the thing that can be only felt but not at all proved....
So when somebody says you need to do this and that otherwise God wont see you, then u can say, 'you r blind'. Consistent Belief in God, thats important! Your inner self decides the way you reach Him, so listen and follow your heart not others!
I make useful of myself sometimes. I made this foot mat out of old clothes. Required items are any old cloth, in good condition or worn out, crochet hook - bigger size the better, scissors and your precious time.
step 1 : cut the cloth as long stripes of 1 to 1 and half inch, if stripes are not continuous, make a knot at ends of stripes.
Row 1 : With crochet hook, make a chain of 5. Make a single chain with chain 1, to make a circle.
Row 2 : make two chain, then in each chain in row 1, make two half-double crusades.
Row 3 : make two chain, then in each chain in row 2, make two half-double crusades.
Row 4 : make two chain, then make a single half-double crusades in chain 1, then two half-double crusades in chain 2. Make sure that alternate chains having two half-double crusades.
Row 5 and 6 same as Row 4.
You can have more rows, if you want a bigger one.
we can use this as foot mat, floor mat in children play area, table cloth, or as you wish depends on your requirements.
In Marriage, why is there the differences on whatever formalities from girls side and boys side? Girl's parents are spending effort as much as the boy's parents or much more. Its an open question to both educated and uneducated, rich and poor. Have you ever thought about that? Is that necessarily necessary to follow those? And who the hell gentlemen set those and who are they to compel others to follow? And what if not followed any more, who are there to cross-check?
Come on yaar, your beloved spouse and family is emotion filled, not an ATM. When you start thinking your spouse family as your own family and spouse parents are yours, they become a part of your responsibility, then why to hurt and spoil the relationship just because of money and indirect money related things?
What-if marriage procedures are commonly standardized, fixed and everybody might follow that. Prayers to God may be done according to your religion, its upto you and God, to give and receive. But marriage procedures can be standardized. Its in the hands of youngsters.
How about a marriage happens like
Choose spouse with good
Bride’s family gets new
clothes for themselves
Bridegroom’s family gets new
clothes for themselves
Get married in register
office with your very first circle relatives and take vow in front of your parents and grand parents.
Distribute sweets among yourselves
Go to temple according to
One time feast-lunch or
dinner, to all invited relatives, friends during reception party
No dowry in any form – jewelry, precious materials or articles, cash, house-hold things, vehicles,
Just two hearts are united
to be a family, filled with happiness, supported by two families.
Whenever your spouse's parents are in need, just be there even before they think they need you.
Don't expect any formalities from spouse's parents, ofcourse they are yours too.
I was happy when I saw my
passport size photo on my 'PASSPORT'. Or even I can say I was proud since I was
the first to hold a passport in my family. I got to use it for ID proof. Not a
chance to travel a distance.
Like Passport, does our life
has any specific purpose or to declare, what we did with life is the purpose??
To give a new life to my expire-soon
Passport, decided to spend time, effort and money hoping at least this new one
would show me a part of world. There are 2 things need to be shared, upon passport
renewal, which is not specified in official website. Might be useful for anybody
who seeking for renewal info.
If bank pass book – joint account is provided as proof, then if applicant
is single then joint account has to be with parents. If applicant is
married, then joint account to be with spouse, otherwise it’s not accepted as proof
If spouse passport is provided as your address proof, then spouse
passport should already hold your name as spouse name.
