Vaastu Shastra - A Science or Fiction

According to Vaastushastra ,you can keep your head in East or South direction while sleeping. East direction is suggested as Hindus worship Lord Soorya (Sun) and there is tradition of not showing your feet to someone reverend and the reason behind South direction is Electromagnetic Field. Researches show that human body has some amount of current in it. If you touch edges of Ammeter using your fingertips, the needle is moved , this shows that our body has some amount of current across it.This is because blood flows in our body which has electrons in it and current flows in opposite direction of electrons. So, this induces a small amount of current in the human body. Every substance which has electric charge associated to it, has some magnetic field associated to it due to electromagnetic field.

Challenges of India’s Development Story

Religion is what serves humanity

Religions in India For many religions is confined as being Hindu, Muslim, Catholic, Buddhism or Jainism etc. But definition of religion implies it is a belief which aids in achieving some common goals. You can be religious for anything viz towards cricket, football, your favorite rock band. Why not, for Iron Maiden fans all over the world fancy themselves as fans, not as Hindu fans or Catholic fans or any other caste fans. They have a common goal, to cheer their band so that they get some great music to hear. This process unites people all over the world, special thanks to the rock shows held globally. Nobody cares about each other’s religion, coz Music becomes a religion to then and that unites people. Ultimate aim of creating religion was simple, TO SERVE HUMANITY. Yes religion in some way means as being divided into various castes. But a religion is not a religion if it destructs humanity. Even today, in many parts of the world wars take place in name of religion. Religion

Cuisines of India

Indian Cuisine Food, one of the many 4 letter words that brings a lot of ideas,experiences and desires in one's mind. As diverse is the heritage,culture lifestyle,belief and language of India, as diverse is the cuisine in its various parts. Like for different occasions one dresses up differently here,the also cuisine differs for various occasions seasons and events.

Spirituality in terms of humanity

Spirituality in terms of humanity Before taking you to the world of spirituality, I would like to give a glimpse of one of my favorite quote on Spirituality by ―   Steve Maraboli. “One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say "i love you", "i'm sorry", "i appreciate you", "i'm proud of you"...whatever you're feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it...cause a smile today for someone else...and give plenty of hugs.”   Exactly, it’s about connecting the dots to serve you and thus serving humanity. It appears as a white snow to my mind, on speaking SPIRITUALITY Common man fancies a divine power or something religious, rather cosmic on bringing the spiritual topic. Youngsters these days get repelled by spirituality. Who has time to seek inner self, gain nirvana, attain soulful bliss? Ro
