Festive Moments – Aala Re aala, Ganpati Aala

 

 

Baby Mishika attends Ganpati puja with us. She is always excited and eagerly waiting to welcome Ganesha on Ganesh Chaturthi. It is a 10 days festival which is celebrated by Hindus . It is marked as birth of Lord Ganesha. Ganesh Chaturthi is also known as Vinayak Chaturthi. Lord Ganesha is the son of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati. Before hindus perform any Puja or start anything new, Lord Ganesha s the first god to be worshipped. He is the only god who removes obstacles and worshipping him will remove all the hurdles and blesses the devotees. The special days when we generally worship Ganesha are Mondays, Chaturthi and Sankat Chaturthi. After Puja we offer lots of prasad among all and take blessings of Lord Ganesha and elders.

Freedom from word “TOMORROW”

We are using so many words in our daily life. Few words we just take for granted and use them the maximum times during our chats with friends, family, relatives etc. Few of those words are Hi, Hello, Lolz, Sure, Ok, Done, I, Me, Myself, Take care, etc.

The one word which we usually keep on speaking is “TOMORROW”. Tomorrow means the day after the present day. It also means “future” or the near future.

Knowingly or unknowingly we use the word Tomorrow to postpone our task, may b out of our laziness, time scarcity or any simple reason. Majorly it is observed that the task which you dont do today and think that you will finish it tomorrow is never get done. It gets postponed and postponed. The better is to think about the imporatance of the task and finish it on time/today itself. The real truth is that you just done know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is just mess up with so many things and as we all know nothing is guaranteed. so, we should live life as if we were to die tomorrow. The only thing we can think of tomorrow is to hope for tomorrow. So, I really want to get freedom from this word “TOMORROW” and do it right away. I want to live today. I want to live in this moment. I know if I work good today, my tomorrow would be obviously best. I dont know what each day has in bucket for me. Any minute can be a goodbye. but I do have this minute, this moment, this time, Today, Right now. I have really just one day and that is today and I want to be happy in it only.

I have read somewhere that “Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.” We also know that the future starts today, not tomorrow. We should all know the true value of time, enjoy and manage every moment of life. No idleness, no laziness, nothing should stop you to achieve your goals.

Today is your own, Tomorrow may never come.

Try to complete your work today itself. Never leave that particular task pending till tomorrow which you can do today. The best preparation for tomorrow is to do todays work superbly well.
