What is this Mind Management? In every difficulty there is an opportunity . Life is really a choice.. to be either Wise, Not wise or Otherwise...... There are two types of worlds we are living in... The visible world and the invisible world.. The outer world and the inner world.. Our body is in this outer space but our mind is in another space.. Just as our body gets dirty if one is in a dirty space our inner self, our mind gets dirty if we visit dirty areas in the inner world.. If one broods over worry, dislike, anger, jealousy, then our mind is polluted.. With such pollution we find the outer world a pain. The real pain is when our Mind lives in Negativity... We are very happy that we are invited to a party where celebrities are attending.. Then we see them beautifully dressed. We may feel bad that we are not rich as they are, we may feel bad that we are not a celebrity...... The outer world and the inner world, is it not? A negative system is created .When we dwell on the negative, our pattern of anger, justifies it loosing control of ourself... It is as though we have installed a programme in our computer and when we open the computer, then that particular programme opens up, we get angry with the computer. We have to realize that it is not the computer but it is the source of the problem/program which is the real culprit... When the world outside is singing and dancing, in the morning sunrise and evening Sunset, in the twinkling of stars and the dancing wind, we feel negative and sick... For it is like mixing Bread with Mud .. Our mind becomes Mud seeing the Bread ....... This is the reality.... When the mind is agitated, turn it on seeing or hearing things something which pleases giving solace to our inner self.. V T Panchapagesan B Interaction 1) V N Kelkar Twelve regional festivals. Yes. Its Pan India. These festivals mark the beginning of new year and the celebration goes as per the tradition in the respective regions. As the nation is passing through pandemic time people are celebrating arrival of new year by remaining in the comfort of their homes. In Maharashtra and the adjoining state Goa it is called Gudi Padva and is celebrated on PRATIPADA TITHI of the month Chaitra as per Hindu calender. It's the first day of the year for the people of these states. This year it was celebrated on the 13th April without much fanfare against the backdrop of Covid season. The festival holds a lot of significance and is usually welcomed with grandeur. 'Gudi' means a flag or emblem of Lord Brahma and 'Padva' means the first day of the phase of the moon. According to Hindu mythology Lord Brahma had created this universe on the day of Gudi Padva. The festival commemorates the crowning of Lord Rama post his return to Aayodhya along with Sita and Lakshmana after completing fourteen years of exile. It marks arrival of spring and coincides with the start of new year. On Gudi Padva day people start their day with customary oil bath after which they wear new clothes, offer prayers and decorate their homes. Rangoli is made using colours and flowers. Gudi is hoisted at the main entrance of the house or on a window. Its reckoned as a symbol of victory. Gudi is made by tying a piece of colourful silk cloth around a bamboo stick of about five feet high. A garland of sugar candies is placed atop it along with flower garland and mango flowers. The stick is placed on a KALASH (silver or copper pot) . The prasad of Gudi Padva comprises neem leaves , coconut, tamarind and jaggery. People have mouth watering sweets like jalebi, gulab jamun, rabadi, shrikhand puri and other savoury food items for lunch. Gudi Padva is known as 'UGADI' in parts of Karnataka, AP and Telangana. The festival of Chaitra Navaratri starts on the same day in North India. VNKelkar 2) C V Subbaraman* Mysuru Thanks for Vishu greetings and the connected write ups.

(Everything we need to know, we already know). 2 Don't look out for death toll. It's not a cricket match to know the latest score. Avoid that. 3 Don't look for additional information on the Internet, it would weaken your mental state. 4 Avoid sending fatalistic messages. Some people don't have the same mental strength as you (Instead of helping, you could activate pathologies such as depression). 5 If possible, listen to music at home at a pleasant volume. Look for board games to entertain children, tell stories and future plans. 6 Maintain discipline in the home by washing your hands, putting up a sign or alarm for everyone in the house. 7 Your positive mood will help protect your immune system, while negative thoughts have been shown to depress your immune system and make it weak against viruses. 8 Most importantly, firmly believe that this shall also pass and we will be safe.... ! Stay positive...Stay safe 🙏🏻🌹 Posted by Rajeshji *Forward received from the other half, Sudha Warrier Mumbai (Sudha, I met you at T R Nivas Mananthavady this day( April 15) in 1973...How fast time has moved. Proud of you and our family 😉 👍🙏-Warrier) E Ancient Knowledge Mahabharata War and Leelavati* Bhāskarāchārya (1114 -1185 CE), has been called the greatest mathematician of medieval India. He was born in Bijapur in Karnataka, and is considered the progenitor of Differential Calculus - 500 years before Newton and Leibniz. Bhāskarāchārya wrote at least four mathematical treatises in Sanskrit. One of them, titled 'Leelavati', contains many algebra-related teasers in this book, which have become the subject of significant research by scholars. These teasers are in the form of shlokas which pose as problems. The shlokas need to be interpreted correctly to decipher the meaning in order to find the solution. Take a look at the shloka displayed in the infographic below. The direct meaning of this shloka is a question formulated as follows: During the battle between Arjuna and Karna in Mahabharata, Arjuna released some arrows. Out of all the released arrows: • Half were consumed in stopping the arrows coming from Karna, • 4 times the squareroot of the arrows were consumed to control the horses of Karna's chariot. • 6 were for gaining control over Shalya, the charioteer of Karna. (Shalya was the maternal uncle of Nakula and Sahadeva.) • 3 were used to take on the umbrella of the chariot, flag of the chariot and bow of Karna. • Finally Karna was killed with a single arrow. So how many arrows were released by Arjuna in the battle ? Basic algebra easily yields the answer to this question, if the equation is formulated correctly. Let the total number of arrows be 'X'. The statements above can be reduced to the algebraic form X = X/2 + 4√X + 6 + 3 + 1 If we solve this we get the value of X=100 for the number of arrows shot by Arjuna. However, the fun is not just getting the algebra right. There is so much of hidden information in this shloka. If we pause to think a little deeper about the hidden meanings : • Even for an atirathi like Arjuna, it took as many as 50 arrows to stop the arrows of Karna - it tells us about the skills of Karna. • That the horses needed 40 arrows to immobilize the chariot tells us about the kind of training given to the horses in the battle field. • When even the horses needed 40 arrows, that Shalya the charioteer surrendered with just 6 tells us that he is favouring Arjuna. • 3 arrows to take the chariot and the bow shows the helplessness of Karna. • Once everything is in control the enemy should vanquished in just a single arrow. So the rules and skills required to win such a battle _operationally_ are: firstly, stop the enemy fire-power; secondly immobilize the enemy by taking on his motive power - the horses and the driver; thirdly give him a signal about his helplessness by destroying the carriage, and finally eliminate the enemy himself. If we analyze the same shloka on the *spiritual* side: • To attain ultimate liberation first one needs to control over his/her personal interests and desires, this is very difficult task so it takes 50 arrows. • Then take control over 5 senses and sensual pleasures indicated by the horses. The 40 arrows needed to do this indicate the difficulty of the task. • Gaining control over 5 senses will lead one to the control over the consciousness (manas, thought, ego) indicated by the driver. • If all the foregoing are done, achieving the ultimate liberation (moksha) should be relatively easy. This is the greatness of our ancestors in sanatana dharma - just one shloka includes so much of knowledge ! Isn't this wonderful ? (Forward received from B Chandrasekharan via Group mail.

She was told that "I work in railway". He once came to an event organised by Railways where his mother also came, asking that my son is also here, he is also in the railways. People asked what is the name ?? When she told the name, everyone there was shocked, "She is lying". But she said, "No he has come". People took her in front of Lal Bahadur Shastriji and asked, "Is this is your son? So the mother said "yes he is my son." People showed the minister, "Is she your mother?" Then Shastri ji called his mother and sat with her and after some time sent her home. So the reporters asked "Why didn't you give a speech in front of her". So he said - My mother does not know that I am a minister. If she comes to know, she will start recommending people and I will not be able to refuse..… and she might also gain arrogance..... Everyone was shocked to hear the answer." Where did those selfless, humble and honest people go? Gone are such Politicians , Gone are those days…..
