The importance of 'Forgiving'

This is special post on the International Day of Forgiving(7th July)

We all are human beings and what makes us humans is the quality of mercy and compassion. This compassion makes all of us able to forgive. 

Forgiveness is one of the most appreciable qualities of human beings. Those who are full of forgiveness to others are known as Saints. Normal people might get angry on those who perform an action that hurts as this causes them go angry. Anger is not at all good. An angry person is most likely to hurt others as well as his own self. But there are many kind of people around us and their behavior is often very annoying to us. So can we escape ourselves from anger? The answer is exactly what I am talking about, “forgiveness”.  

To forgive is to let go something that is otherwise not pleasing or painful to you and allow an excuse to the person who cause you anger or pain.

A famous saying states that “There are two ways to make your life happier; one is to forgive and the other is to be forgiven.” 

Those who are able to forgive eventually lead a better and more peaceful life. Those who know how to forgive are the strongest people as they stand stronger than those who can punish or take a revenge. Of course, forgiving does not change the event or action that has hurt someone in past, however, it certainly helps in healing the pain and making the future better. 

No one of us is free from evils. All of us are likely to commit mistakes though which we intentionally or unintentionally hurt others. If those hurt get angry with you there comes a conflict which again opens the process of hurting each other. But what if the other person forgives you for what you have done? It is soothing and leads to peace for you both. 

So, this 7th July do forgive all those who have ever hurt you and ask those you have ever hurt to forgive you. You will certainly see the magic of more peaceful, more enjoyable and a happier life of yours. 

Keep Forgiving!

  7. I think is so important in the world today. Forgiving and moving is more beneficial to self than to the person in front of us i think. We hold grudges in our mind alone.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…

K For Kalpasi - An Unknown Treasure

Good food is really a blessing, isn't it? And as I am talking about those who really go into making an average food to finger licking, I realized our spices undoubtedly do magic with the everyday food. Apart from the basic ingredients and a well-known, trusted recipe, a play of spices and herbs can really lift up a preparation. Every region in India uses spices to make their local food extraordinary. It is only a matter of spices that change the taste of the same Shambhar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in north India. We all make Chole but the game of spices do something to what we relish as famous Panjabi Chole.  It is all about the little nuances that go into creating a dish from ordinary to exceptional.

A handful of spices always remain in our kitchens and we know their unique flavors. However, there are a number of spices are little unheard-of. While these form an essential part of a few local innate cuisines in some part of India, the rest of India does not know much about them. O…
