Similarities that I found between Mahabharata and Avengers…

I was not a big fan of Sci-fi movies until I watched the Marvel series of Avengers. I personally loved every bit of it, so before watching “Avengers- Endgame”, I started watching the prequels of the series. Right from the Iron Man to the Infinity War, I watched every movie before I watched the last part.

The war at the Endgame reminded me of Mahabharata war. The destruction, the fight for the righteousness, the fight for their loved ones resembles Avengers in many ways. Every character had their own perspective, had their own story to convey.

I don’t know why but the characters were quite related to the characters of Mahabharata. Though, I am not claiming that the Avengers were inspired from the Mahabharata characters.

Not going into the details of each and everything because both the sagas are incomparable in my view.

But this is completely from my perspective and hope you all can relate to it.

Starting from the Black Widow, reminds me one of the most prominent character of Mahabharata, Draupadi. The pride, the valour that Black widow carries with herself resembles Draupadi in many ways.

The incredible Hulk shared his similarities with the great Bheem. Both the characters were related to each other not only in terms of their sizes but also in terms of their anger, they both shared this quality together.

Captain America is more of a goody character and a warrior which makes him go parallel with the mighty Arjuna, the one who lead the army. Captain can also be compared to Yudhisthira for his righteousness and fairness.

Hawkeye, gives you Karna Vibes, because of the exceptional qualities that he possess such as he was an acrobat, marksman. One of the major quality that he shares with Karna is “Archery”. Even though these qualities are possessed by Arjuna, but for me Karna stands out.

The next in the line is Thor, he is known to be the God of Thunder, and in our mythology there is only one, who can be remembered of, is our very own Lord Indra. He is the ultimate God of thunder in our mythology.

The next important character of Avenger is the antagonist, Thanos, who is more or less like the antagonist of Mahabharata, Duryodhana. Just like Duryodhana, if there are people who hated Thanos, so there were people who admired him truly. So love it or hate it, you just can’t ignore both of them.

And last but not the least, the one who ended the war, the Iron Man, who somehow reminded me of Lord Krishna of Mahabharata. That snap of Iron Man at the climax of the endgame which ended the war prompted me that how only Lord Krishna was capable of ending the great Mahabharata war. I am in no way comparing Lord Krishna with a fictional characters. Please note.

There can be many other characters which can be compared to our historical characters.

But these are some of my observations of the characters that I believe have certain similarities amongst them. Not going into much detail about it.

If you have any such theories or observations that you believe in, please do share it on my blog, I would love to read them.   

Your Self has a respect!!

Respect??

What’s so great about this word??

For your ownself its self- respect, For others it is disrespect.

Respect is like a business, if you give then only you get in return. But sometimes its sooo expensive that people refuses to give in at all.

Ohh!! it comes with lots of conditions too..

So here there is twist😊

Respect is to be given for some reasons. Anyway, Humans don’t even breathe without a reason.

So an employee gets respect from his employer till the time he is doing his work, a servant is respected till the time he is serving his master. That one time he refuses to serve, everything goes in vain. Another term that steals all the show is “Self- Respect”, isn’t it??

So there are people out there who compromises with this mighty term. An employee has to bear insults so that he is not fired from his job. A servant is suppose to bear humiliations because a Master is supposed to be always ahead of him. And if he thinks of his self- respect even for a second, he gets left- right and centre from his master.

And on a practical note,

A master or a boss forgets one thing, but What??

That “a master is not a master without a servant, a boss is nothing without his employees, a government is nothing without his citizens” and they actually forget this simple principle of life. If a master pays his servant for his work, then a servant is giving his precious time, he also leaves his family behind to serve you, he compromises with his own self-respect when he bows down to you, for which you might have just bashed him for not giving you respect.

Am I making sense??

Respect is a game that is played every now and then. Every person has their own version of respect. But what really matters?? ” Your Self-respect”

Yes

Never compromise on self- respect when you are right. It does not make you arrogant, it does not make you egoistic and no one has that right to let your self- respect down. One thing that I have learnt in life is respect yourself first and only then people around you will favour you. And it does not require any position in the society.

It just need faith, faith in your ownself. Nothing ever will let you down. No one will ever be able to harm your dignity😊

And thats where the essence of Respect lies.

“Sammaan se badhkar Atma-Sammaan hai..

Isse agar sahi tarah samjho..toh koi aapko jhuka nahi sakta”

On that note, I leave you all with a thought, that sometimes people even misinterpret self-respect as “EGO”.. It is very important to differentiate between both of them😊

PS: I am wholly and solely responsible for my personal views shared in my post. You may also share yours🙂

Thank You Nature!!

Taken from Gabbar Hill, Ambaji, North Gujarat.

Ahh! What a beautiful world that we live in.

When you travel, there are some heavenly vibes that nature gifts you and you can’t resist but to admire this stunning creativity of the supreme being.

Such flawless artistry makes me fall for the nature more.

I was mesmerised by the beauty of this spectacular creation.

No wonder why nature is considered to be “Mother Nature”.
How it only showers love on us and nothing else, just like our own mother, isn’t it?

But we humans think constructing concrete jungle is a step towards development.
The man-made jungle cannot ever compete the God’s creation of nature.
And I have to admit that I am also equally responsible for it.

I am a nature lover but I never contributed anything to conserve it, to protect it. And I declare that I am guilty of it.
Just think for a moment what nature does for us and what our man made jungle has done to us??

There is a reason why I can call Nature as “Mother”
Nature oriented places carasses you with fresh air and no matter how much ever you are depressed, you feel tranquilised when you embrace them.
The trees are the reason that you breathe oxygen, the fresh air. And with concrete jungle we breathe the toxic air and we call it as “development”.

If nature is our mother, we humans naturally are her spoilt kids.

So when a mother showers her love, we don’t value it and when she is angry, we blame her for every destruction that takes place around us.

Perhaps, we can never know the worth of the gifts that exist amongst us.

Trust me and I am sure everyone would agree to it that the climate change that we are facing is not because of the nature, but the whole and sole reason is HUMANS.

I salute those who fight to save our nature, to save our earth.

I pledge today that I would contribute towards our nature within my capacity or even beyond if possible.

I know its too late but as it is rightly said,

“Better late then NEVER”

So here are some pictures in which I have started my bit with my team.

Then Buddies and now a team 😊

With “Agami” we have started a tree plantation drive- a small service for our nature.

and many more further activities to be added in near future.

Anyone who wants to be the part of it, can feel free to contact us 😊

Thank you 😊🤗

Ek कृष्ण Vrindavan ka, Ek कृष्ण Dwarka ka !!

एक कृष्ण वृंदावन का, तो दुजा कृष्ण द्वारका का!!

एक कृष्ण ने प्रेम सिखाया, तो दुजे ने धर्म का पाठ पढ़ाया !!

एक कृष्ण रासलिला रचाए, तो दुजा कृष्ण राजनिती सिखाए !!

एक कृष्ण बाँसुरी बजाता, तो दुजा सुदर्शन चक्र चलाता !!

एक कृष्ण जिसने गैया चराई, तो दुजे कृष्ण ने महाभारत रचाई !!

एक कृष्ण जिसने प्रेम की राह दिखाई, तो दुजे ने साम-दाम-दंड-भेद का मार्ग अपनाया !!

वृंदावन जहाँ वो सबका “कान्हा” कहलाता था, वही कान्हा अब “द्वारिकाधिश” कहलाया गया !!

एक कृष्ण जो माखनचोर कहलाया, तो दुजा कृष्ण रणछोड़ जाना गया!!

एक कृष्ण जिसे अनेक माताओ ने आशिर्वाद दिया, तो दुजे कृष्ण ने एक माता के श्राप को सर आँखो पर बिठाया!!

एक कृष्ण जिसने वृंदावन की धरती को “प्रेम भुमी” बना दी, और दुजे ने कुरुक्षेत्र की धरती को “युध भुमी” मे परिवर्तित कर दिया!!

कान्हा तुम्हे समझ पाना शायद इतना सरल ना हो पर, पर तुम्हे समझ पाने की ये यात्रा बड़ी खुबसुरत है!!

Channelizing Inner KRISHNA

How important it is to stand for yourself and face your problem with courage and not with fear?

While fearing the problem makes you run away from it whereas facing the problem makes you stand with dignity.

I realized it after watching the ongoing mythological show “Radha Krishna” wherein they are trying to make you aware of all the vices that has made a house inside each and everyone of us and only way to keep that love alive is, freedom from all those iniquities.

While the authenticity of the stories shown in the show is questionable but the hidden message behind it is worth learning.

In one of its episode,

Kansa planned to get hold of Krishna, hook or by crook, fearing, that a mere shepherd is going to be his fate, the Lord of his death. Since Radha is Krishna’s soul, the King of Mathura presumed that Krishna’s life is in Radha, the Queen of Barsana. Kansa’s plan was to trap Radha so that Krishna, knowing Radha to be in danger, would turn up at Mathura for Radha’s rescue. And somewhere Radha also was convinced that her Krishna, would turn up to save her life. Although, she had a faith that he would arrive at her calling, Krishna didn’t as he was well aware about the trap that Kansa had planned for him. Krishna was witnessing the ongoing battle inside Radha like a spectator but he was adamant on not going to Mathura for Radha’s rescue, for the reason that, the mighty lord wished Radharani to channelize her inner strength, her inner “Krishna.”

Similarly, when we face an unfortunate situation, first thing that we do is to call out for God and when he does not emerge, we held him responsible for all our misfortunes. But sometimes what we perceive is really not the TRUTH.

The supreme being always stays with us and within us. Its just that he wish us to channelize our inner energy, our inner “Krishna” and only then we realise our capability to face any circumstances.

But we stop trusting him and our “Ego” makes up his way for himself. We start considering ourselves superior enough to fight any situation and proclaim that God doesn’t exist for us.

Yes, one can fight any obstacle in life but don’t forget, the courage that you gathered to confront the same unfortunate situation is because you called out your inner “KRISHNA.”    

P. S: I am not being preachy, It is just my observation. 😎 I would also like to know your views and would love to read it on my comment box😊

Agar Har Insaan mein Hari hai…

Agar Har insaan mein “Hari” hai,
Phir woh “Hari”, kyun Burai karvata hai ek dusre se?
Agar har insaan mein “Hari” hai,
Phir kyun koi kisika Dil dukhata hai?
Agar har Insaan mein “Hari” hai,
Phir kyun kisika Apman hota hai?
Kya kisika Apman, “Hari” ka Apman nahi?
Kya Kisi ki Burai, “Hari” ki Burai nahi?
Kya kisiki izzat se khilvad, Hari ki izzat ke saath khilvad nahi?
Jaha har mann mein “Hari” ka nivas hai, phir ussi mann ke saath chal kyun?
Jis mann mein Prem hota hai, ussi ke saath kapat kyun?
Agar Har Mann mein “Hari” hai,
Phir kyun jo “Hari”, Vishvas ki neev daalta hai, wahi mann mein basa hua “Hari” ussi Vishwas ki neev hila deta hai?
Jo “Hari” har mann mein basa hai, uska samman puri tarha hona “Abhi shesh hai.”

The Game of Perception

We all have different perspective on looking at things or any situation. Some choose to look at things positively or negatively depends on the gravity of the problem. Sometimes we see a negative act, we perceive it negatively, though the outcome of it can be positive in the future. And certain things that we perceive it positively, it can turn out to be negative later on.

You see it’s all “the Game of Perception.”

Let me narrate you all a story

Moses, a person who was in need of a spiritual companionship found one in Al Khidr which proved to be an eye-opening experience for the former. Al Khidr was a Lifelong traveller and Moses wanted to follow him on his journey to which Khidr said “If you want to accompany me, you have to be patient and not question me.” Moses agreed and set out the journey with Khidr in the most unusual way. Little did he know that a ‘wali’ or a prophet has their own way of doing certain things, Moses started inhibiting the ways in which Khidr used to do certain acts. At one fine day, Moses gave up his promise to not question Khidr about his actions as he could not resist and when he asked all his doubts to Khidr, he explained each one of them. Moses then realised that certain things happens for a reason. And patience is all you need.

Though the journey of Moses was short-lived with his master Khidr but he learnt a life long lesson to look at certain things with different perspective and with patience. What he felt as wrong acts performed by Khidr were actually the acts that were the need of an hour. Those acts, if not performed, can shape up devastatingly in forthcoming days.

Looking at problems and analysing them more deeply can change our perspective towards life and may be in a positive way. Isn’t it??

P. S: This is straight coming from my personal experience, and I am not preaching at all.

Just my “Perspective”

Fearing The Fear

I now understand why travelling helps you to overcome your inner fears that you bear in your heart

The root cause of all problems in life is fear. When fear at last stage, it turns into depression.

Yes I agree we all have fears in life, I too have it but what I have learnt is that if you want to overcome such fears you just need to face it otherwise it would occupy your mind, your heart and eventually it would make place all over your life.

Fear of losing someone, fear of speaking truth, fear of God, the most terrible is fear of humans and many more such fears controls your life which disturbs your smooth journey.

Yes I too have fears and no I am not being preachy at all but nothing makes sense unless we don’t fight with our fears.

We are afraid of making mistakes but without committing it we don’t learn.

Unless you don’t fight it back you can’t make peace with yourself because either you just stop doing something out of terror or its a beginning of new wrong.

I am learning now to overcome all my fears everyday

What about you??

It’s OK to be imperfect!!

I am imperfect

I make mistakes,

I learn from them

And commit new one the next day

I might be slow,

I might be lethargic,

I might be inept,

But thats what I am- IMPERFECT

I am not the one who initiates,

I am an introvert by heart,

But my love for writing,

Gives me hope that I can speak,

I can share my thoughts,

I can pour my heart out and

My imperfection motivates me to do it😊

Its OK to be imperfect, Its OK to make new mistakes everyday and only when I learn new things every single time because being perfect is too boring.

Being Opinionated

I have seen people forming an opinion on certain things with unclear facts and with less amount of truth or infact no truth at all.

We all want to give our opinions on some or the other thing whether its a small issue or a big one but you will be heard “ONLY” either if you possess a strong personality or else your opinion is strong enough to change someone’s mind and heart.

Now the tragedy comes when influential people give their opinions on a particular subject “they will be heard” no matter whether they are right or wrong.

And when a commoner’s opinion would not even matter for a fact because they don’t carry any influence on anybody.

Now let’s take an example of the most influential factor in our country

“MEDIA”

Lets accept that we all follow media and it has a greatest impact in our lives. We get daily dose of gossips and the mixture of all type of news in every genre. We form all our opinions on the basis of the facts that are presented to us by means of media. We all believe that the news which is brought to us by media is with clearL facts and truth but they have these infamous “Sources” who we feel that they always speak “TRUTH” and we do believe in those Sources more than they do.

The real question here lies is that why do we believe these sources so much?? Why do we form our opinion on the basis of the piece of news that is given to us?? Why do we not form our opinion after thinking and understanding things carefully?? Why do we follow others opinion when we can have our own?? Why do we not believe on our understanding or our knowledge?? Why do we rely on others understanding or thinking?? Everybody’s thinking can be different from each other.

And Why do we depend on others opinion while making any important decision?? Yes suggestions and their opinions should be heard but applying your own heart and mind to it is more fruitful and more important.

Why?? Think about it😊

P.S: I would not mind if you have contrary view, please feel free to comment on my blog and feedbacks are most welcome😊
