My country is My Valentine!!


Raining inspirational words
It was organised by WAYE, the youth wing of Art of Living and saw a jam-packed audience of youngsters, getting together to spark the spirit of nationalism.

This year we will not ask anything from our nation, but will contribute our utmost instead,” said Rashmin, a senior international faculty of Art of Living while inaugurating the programme, My Country, My Valentine, that began on a serious note but ended with oodles of rollicking fun, laughter and music.

It was organised by World Alliance Of Youth Empowerment (WAYE), the youth wing of Art of Living and saw a jam-packed audience of youngsters, getting together to spark the spirit of nationalism. The session was divided in three parts: India’s Glory of the Past, Pains of the Present and Dreams of the Future.

“For thousands of years, the nation has been renowned for its spirituality. Today, the West is taking yoga and ayurveda from India, and India has taken fast-food and pop music. I don’t think it’s a fair exchange,”  he said further.

Amidst the audience’s oohs and aahs, startling facts were revealed in a presentation of ancient vedic scriptures that depicted  India’s advancement in science and technology thousands of years ago, like a shloka explaining Pythagoras Theorem 2,000 years ago before Pythagoras; the value of pi; and the Principle of Gravity. An ancient texts of Vimana shastra explained the principles of an aeroplane more than 7,000 years ago.

Going on to the second part of the evening, Rashmin spoke about some of the present facts about politics. “Our 
country gave Rs 50 crore to Harvard and Cambridge universities, when our own educational infrastructure is in doldrums.’’

The final part of the evening was about ‘How we can make a difference?’ “We need to start voting, and then empower ourself spiritually. Anger and violence belong to a weak mind, crying for help, so unless we learn to be calm and centred, we cannot stand up and make a difference to our society and to ourselves,” concluded Rashmin.

The students abuzz with patriotic fervour, rocked to satsang. 

The evening ended with a short meditation, and a pledge by the audience to help spread spiritual awareness.

Bharath Gyan and Amitabh Bachchan

Bharat Gyan is a fantastic website for scientific collection of historical facts about India.

Amitabh Bachchan writes a nice blog. Its good to get to know of a star’s life from himself rather than some magazines.

Recently Big B and Bharath Gyan team had a meeting. It seems Big B will take up some project to spread the awareness of true historical background of India.

It is surprising that in this very country where King Rama lived, his existence was questioned in parliament and court. This clearly shows the lack of proper education in history and confusion of history with mythology:- history is a set of facts that actually happened, and mythology is a set of stories symbolising human values.

Bharath Gyan team, the researchers from Chennai, have put together detailed archaeological facts and astronomical calculations in the site The History of Rama.

I won’t dis-regard the re-discovery of aeroplane science by Wright brothers, however, this science of flying has been known for ages, and the written texts on this date 6500 years ago. Study by the Bharath Gyan team has shown that there are detailed records of geometrical designs, skill sets needed by a pilot, materials used for making the body of aeroplane in these texts.

Apart from Aerospace Science, Bharath Gyan talks about Krishna, Ayurveda (Science of surgergy was available long back!), Clonning and many other things.

Its time that we learn about our own heritage, and build our knowledge base on top of what ancient (and probably more advanced!) civilisation in India already knew!
