The Inspiring Story of Rudolph, The Reindeer - #bloggersanta

The Inspiring Story of Rudolph, The Reindeer by vibhuandme

I am sure you must have heard the story of Rudolph, the reindeer. This story was written way back in 1939 by  Mr. Robert May, an employee in the advertising department of Montgomery Ward stores  at Chicago. Did you know that the original name of the reindeer was Rollo? But May’s boss did not like it, and hence the name Rudolph came from the author’s young daughter. For those who don't know this story, I am going to share the story again. Now, this has a great moral lesson hidden in it and I would try to explain that as well. Here goes the story :

Once there was reindeer named Rudolph. He had a shiny red nose. Everyone in reindeer village used to make fun of him because of his strange nose. His father even asked him to hide his nose so that he could fit in reindeer games. However, his nose was not an ordinary red nose. With his red nose, Rudolph was capable of seeing through the thick fog. But as others used to laugh at Rudolph, he never understood the uniqueness of his nose. He hated his nose.
The story of Rudolph, the reindeer By Vibhu & MeOn one Christmas, when Santa was delivering presents to Rudolph’s house, he noticed the glow emanating from Rudolph’s room. So one foggy Christmas Eve, worried that the thick fog could be the cause of an accident or delays and would keep him from completing his Christmas Eve rounds, Santa came to Rudolph and said: Rudolph, with your glowing nose, won’t you come and lead my sleigh tonight? Rudolph immediately agreed to lead Santa’s sleigh. It was such a great responsibility.  But Rudolph was a good reindeer so before leaving he stopped to write a note for his parents.
The light of Rudolph’s nose was so great that it illuminated the team’s path during the foggy nights, and Santa’s task could safely be accomplished. Santa's sleigh was pulled by 8 reindeers. And with Rudolph joining them, those 9 reindeers helped Santa accomplish his Christmas commitments on time. Now Rudolph was so proud of himself and how his strange nose let him do an important task for Santa. 

Coming to the lesson that this story teaches us. Never underestimate yourself. One day for sure you'll get to know the importance of your own unique personality. 
This is also the story of the person who does not fit in society’s clearly defined roles and people make fun of saying odd one out. Being a misfit, one tries to hide himself fearing rejections and hate. Some obvious Rudolphs of our society are disabled people, homosexuals and poor. Our society rarely gives them the respect and welcome. But they are not the accidents by nature that they are queer. But, nature deliberately produces such Rudolphs because diversity is nature’s way, not homogeneity. Like Santa did recognize the validity of the red shiny nose, if we also can recognize how such people can show us a different aspect of life and can give them acceptance and honour, the world will be different then. Lives would be easier and our paths will be clearer then. Isn't it?
Let your kids watch the story of Rudolph here. I am sure they would love it.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
