भारतीय नवजागरण के अग्रदूत – आचार्य जगदीश (अनुवाद)

आज के अहंकार-केन्द्रित समाज में जहाँ सभी लोग सदैव आत्मश्लाघा में ही रत रहते हैं, ऐसे दृष्टान्त अत्यन्त विरल हैं जहाँ एक महानायक ने अपने समकालीन एक अन्य महारथी का जयगान किया हो । फिर भी यदि अतीत में झाँकें तो एेसे कई दृष्टान्त हमें मिल ही जाते हैं, जैसे श्रीरामकृष्ण और विद्यासागर, हाइजनबर्ग और रवीन्द्रनाथ का साक्षात्कार, इत्यादि । ऐसे स्तुतिगान न केवल उस महापुरुष की महिमा के लिए उचित श्रद्धांजलि होते हैं, अपितु उन गायक महापुरुष की विनम्रता को भी परिलक्षित करते हैं ।  इतिहास के पृष्ठों में यत्र-तत्र बिखरे ऐसे स्तुति गान हमारी सांस्कृतिक धरोहर के रत्न-स्वरूप हैं । उस भण्डार से एक रत्न राष्ट्रीय विज्ञान दिवस (28 फरवरी) के अवसर पर आपके सम्मुख प्रस्तुत कर रहा हूँ ।

Some time back I had posted an article on the Aravrit script, a hybrid script created by joining Arabic and Hebrew scripts. While exploring the work further, I had some doubts, which I communicated to Liron Lavi Turkenich, the creator of the script. If you have a Facebook account, you may like to see the response to my query on this link.

Virgos rock!

“. . . Virgo eyes are often so astonishingly clear you can almost see your reflection in them. They sparkle with intelligence and clarity of thought. There’s a purity and tranquility of expression on Virgo features that seems to deny those secret worries. Most of them are extremely attractive, with delicate noses, ears and lips . . . Don’t forget that the shy, wistful smile of Virgo hides a secret or two . . .”   — Linda Goodman, Sun Signs.

Competition In Sorrow

Do this experiment once. Next time when someone asks you ‘how are you?’, instead of telling ‘fine’, just mention that you are not, and enumerate one or two troubles you have. For example, ‘not fine, I don’t know, but since last couple of days I am feeling intense pain in my stomach’. Or, ‘my children not faring well in exams’, ‘my husband is too busy with his own work, and I am not able to handle so many things alone’. Or just anything. And then see the magic! Continue reading

A Hungry Country Throwing Away Its Food

In an earlier article, I told you how I learnt to value money after reading my father’s diary. Another habit which we children developed by observing our parents — both of them — was to respect food. We did not learn it by reading their diaries or eavesdropping on their conversations. As a family we used to eat together, and day and night we watched and observed how our parents never wasted a single grain of food. This is one of the reasons that I always stress that children learn by observing their parents and follow their example, whereas lecturing almost never helps. Continue reading
