Let's give our tribute to Neta ji Subhash Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary today

Today we are celebrating the 121st birth anniversary of Neta Ji Subhash Chandra Bose. Neta Ji was one of the most prominent leaders in the Indian independence movement and is a legendary figure and well-known personality in the Indian history. Subhas Chandra Bose is affectionately called "Netaji", who is known for his intelligence, bravery, supreme sacrifice and his role in the freedom struggle of the country. Contrary to non-violence thinking of many of the leaders of Indian's struggle for freedom, he founded Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) to overthrow the British ruling and came to acquire legendary status among Indian masses. Even our social media is paying tribute to Neta Ji with sharing his famous sayings and thoughts. It's our responsibility to let our kids know about him and how he participated in India's struggle for freedom.

It is worth remembering him today and his famous quotes who used to fill people with so much courage and love of our country: 

1. Freedom is not given - it is taken.

2. Give me blood and I will give you freedom!


3.The secret of political bargaining is to look more strong than what you really are.


4. We should have but one desire today - the desire to die so that India may live.


5. Never lose your faith in the destiny of India. There is no power on the earth that can keep India in bondage.India will be free, that too, soon.


6.Forget not that the grossest crime is to compromise with injustice and wrong.Remember the eternal law: You must give if you want to get.


7. One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives.


8. It is our duty to pay for our liberty with our own blood. The freedom that we shall win through our sacrifice and exertions, we shall be able to preserve with our own strength.


9. At this unprecedented juncture in our history, I have a word for you. Do not be disheartened by our temporary defeat; be cheerful and optimistic. Above all, never lose your faith in the destiny of India. There is no power on earth which can keep India in bondage. India will be free and, that too, soon. "JAl-HIND" !


10.India is calling. Blood is calling for blood. Get up, we have no time to lose. Take up your arms! we shall carve our way through the enemy's ranks, or if God wills, we shall die a martyr's death. And in our last sleep, we shall kiss the road that will bring our Army to Delhi. The road to Delhi is the road to Freedom. "Chalo Delli"!


JAI HIND !!

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…

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…
