History and Origin of Sanskrit Language

The Sanskrit language is truly a fountainhead if one surveys the three thousand years of its existence. The story of the origin of Sanskrit began right from the Vedic age, sailing through the post-Vedic years and centuries later till today. The Aryans collected the mass of hymns, rituals and poems about their gods in the four Vedas (10th century BC) which document the various dialects that they brought to India (but that wasn’t the Sanskrit we know of today). From the Punjab, where the Aryans settled first after they came from Central Asia, their speech spread along the east as far as present Bihar by about 600 BC. Obviously, this Vedic or Old Indo-Aryan language met with the language of the Dravidians (who were then not restricted to just the southern regions) and Austrics, and some give and take happened. The result was Prakrit or Middle Indo-Aryan dialect which soon engulfed the whole country in the north, east and centre. The Aryan invasion was moving towards completion.

History and origin of Language Urdu

Urdu is probably the most poetic of all languages. The Urdu language is spoken by more than 28 million heads in India. It is written in the Perso-Arabic script. The word Urdu (court or camp) stems from the Persianized Turkish word (Ordu) which meant ‘the camp of a Turkish army’. North Indian Muslims with their own dialects moved to South and Central India and settled among the Marathas, Kannadigas and Telugus. These dialects formed the basis of a literary speech is known as Dakhni or the ‘Southern Speech’ and was spoken in the Deccan. Later, north Indian Muslims, who came with Aurangzeb for his conquests down south and some Dakhni writers, saw the possibility of evolving a new language. This language would be based on the literary traditions of Dakhni and have the Persian script along with generous usage of Perso-Arabic words, idioms and theme ideas. Shamsuddin Waliullah a famous poet of the Dakhni actually started the North Indian Urdu. Other poets also joined in this new literary

my dreams

like the wind i want to fly much above the ground in the vast sky. like the birds under sun i want to roam live to see and have fun. above the horizon in heavens vast expanse i want to sing and happily i want to dance. in crowds and place i searched the way to them but not a clue i got but just mayhem. perhaps under the sea lies in its deep womb, the key or the sun shows the way no one knows. but i roam with a hungry heart for i have desired apart from the rest. may be someday i will find the way for the what i want to be when in grave i will die.

Fleeting Time - English Poem

The drizzles on the eve of monsoon the wind passes through the open window covering the fair face with her dry hair wetting the parched heart with living relics she stumbled on her mirthful childhood with fairy tales and horse rode prince with breathless venture she passed quickly the dream laden adolescence where life foresaw rainbows, thunders, rose-petals and nails she embraced the time with creamy night kissed the 'Real' pleasant and gleaming time became short-days to hours and hours to minutes till a gale broke the soft feathers of her flying wings alone, forlorn, beaten and crippled. only limitless woes and deepest mourn left her to a blank ether, boundless sea and solitary journey, friendliness and loveless. the flowing tear and pale face, the weeping lips and deep sighs the sleepless eyes and blank sky the grief laden rain with tearful sobs fills her life with unending pine.

Sweet Pain of Separation - A Poem

I beckon the breeze brushing me pass cold winter air on my chest the wall inside is lit up with contrast I ponder tonight in loneliness the light beyond the comatose corridors surpassing the dark windows and leaves remind me of my presence in desire that the demure solitude achieves the loyal moon travels the starry sky silent warmth in her creamy glow sober softness in her parlance the message they are for the heavens to show I walk up to the sleepy balcony my sane presence is not welcome here where madness resigned the spirits hours ago now I'm not with my friends here. I invite their voices through the breeze I invite their smiles through the moon I question their presence to the trees none of them answer but I heard the spirits which stayed with me their shadows still I could not see I feel the sweet pain of separation they must be talking about me. Poet - Arijit Mukherjee

A slumdog beauty

looking out of my hostel window I saw her quite distinguished from the group, as she tries to adjust her salwar but fails to escape from the shifty eyes of the leader. she hasn't yet touched eighteen but the time has made her to look so, even if she has no right to glow she tries very hard to walk out the overload. and time goes on from morning to evening some times at night, loading weight on the head more than herself, just to eat and live. sitting at my study table I thought a lot, but couldn't give an answer to my heart what is her fault?

Win Toss to Win Match

Toss, Yes, of course, plays a major role in determining the fate of a match. but as there are many many aspects in a match of cricket or any other sports which contribute to the teams winning probabilities. one can't say in damn sure that the team which has won the toss is going to win the match. a game is decided by the player's performance, their form , their teamwork and many more aspects like the coach of the team, the playground where the match is being played. the player's fitness, their talents/capability etc. so what I think is winning a toss to win a match is not of such a hype and important but it should be treated just like other aspects which I described here and other many more hidden aspects. Even if a single player's form can decide the fate of a match as we are the witness to our beloved "Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar". Similarly, an organised and great teamwork can also increase the match-winning probability to a great height. As we

namaskaram

Namaste, Namaskar or Namaskaram is a common spoken greeting or salutation in the Indian subcontinent. Namaskar is considered a slightly more formal version than namaste but both express deep respect. It is commonly used in India and Nepal by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, and many continue to use this outside the Indian subcontinent. In Indian and Nepali culture, the word is spoken at the beginning of written or verbal communication. However, the same hands folded gesture is made usually wordlessly upon departure. In yoga, namaste is said to mean "The light in me honors the light in you," as spoken by both the yoga instructor and yoga students. Taken literally, it means "I bow to you". The word is derived from Sanskrit (namas): to bow, obeisance, reverential salutation, and respectand (te): "to you". When spoken to another person, it is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointed upwards, in front
