MyGov Quiz – Innovative way to know the key initiatives of GOI

Hello All,

When India is experiencing the pre-monsoon showers (although scatter and scanty) – a relief from the scorching summer heat, I spent my Saturday afternoon in the confines of my room.

Today, I attempted a The Governance Quiz on the MyGov website – A tremendous effort on part of Indian Government to make the Indian netizens aware of their Government’s numerous initiatives and schemes.

Its not easy for the citizens to keep themselves updated with myriad of government schemes. I found MyGov website a well thought and beautifully designed user interface to make the citizens familiar with their work and efforts.

The The Governance Quiz had 30 questions and on occasion of International Yoga Day (21st June) a special 20 questions quiz on Yoga & Naturopathy.

Proud to be part of this transformational journey in the Indian Digital Economy !

Before I end, here is a befitting quote from @TheEconomist

“You teach me, I forget. You show me, I remember. You involve me, I understand.” – Edward O. Wilson

Happy New Year 2017

Dear Friends,
As we welcome the year 2017, I would like to wind up 2016 with following lines from unknown author.

Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure Keeps you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But only God Keeps you Going…

Here is what the world searched on Google in year 2016.

May you and your family be blessed abundantly! Wish you a happy and prosperous new year 2017 🙂

Cheers!
Vijay Mahawar

Not just another brick in the wall

The hallmark of sound educational system is that which emphasis on IQ (Intelligent Quotient), EQ (Emotional Quotient), SQ (Spiritual Quotient) and PQ (Physical Quotient). Ancient education system in India focused on holistic development of an individual.

Disappointingly, today more or less the education system is confined to just producing intellectual machines. Sadly, DINKs and DEWKs parents want their kids to be in academics and coaching classes to stay ahead in the rat race and just be “Another brick in the wall“.

On 27 September 2014, during his address to UN General Assembly, Mr. Narendra Modi, Hon’ble Indian Prime Minister had said – “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition“. Gladly, adoption of 21st June as International Day of Yoga is a positive step towards reviving this fading ancient system of education.

Regular practice of yoga can unite the Mind, Body and Spirit. When citizens are happy and healthy, they will never want to be just another brick in the wall. Yoga can help countries to move towards becoming a welfare state. The goal of a welfare state is that citizens of the country will aim for the top of the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Fewer people will want to be at the bottom of the pyramid in amassing unreasonable wealth just for their physiological needs and security needs.

Mysterious Cycle of Exist, Evolve, Express and Extinguish

Dear Friends,
On 19th July 2016, on the occasion of Guru Purnima; my niece, Sanchi Mahawar left for her heavenly abode. She left the mortal body after fighting for life for two months from rare SLE disease.

Sanchi_Mahawar_2004-2016

Sanchi Mahawar (31-07-2004 to 19-07-2016)

At this time, when my family is still mourning this great irreversible loss, I pray for the departed soul and may her soul rest in peace.

Below is the shanti mantra from Katho Upanishad

ॐ सह नाववतु |
सह नौ भुनक्तु |
सह वीर्यं करवावहै |
तेजस्विनावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः॥

English Transalation:
Oṃ saha nāv avatu
saha nau bhunaktu
saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai
tejasvi nāv adhītam astu
mā vidviṣāvahai |
Om śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

Meaning:
Aum! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together;
May we work conjointly with great energy,
May our study be vigorous and effective;
May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any).
Aum! Let there be peace in me!
Let there be peace in my environment!
Let there be peace in the forces that act on me!

“We are not human beings on this spiritual journey,
But we are spiritual beings on this human journey.”

This quote makes me wonder about our existence and this entire creation in itself.

Life becomes meaningful when we closely understand the purpose of our existence beyond the realm of physical matters or five elements alone. As its familiar that our physical existence revolves around five elements – Fire, Air, Space, Earth and Water. There is more to our existence which cannot be described in words alone and which can only be experienced. I would like to end with a shloka from Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ।
मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

English Transalation:
Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya |
Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya |
Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya |
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||

Meaning:
1: Om, (O Lord) Keep me not in the Unreality (of the bondage of the Phenomenal World), but lead me towards the Reality (of the Eternal Self),
2: (O Lord) Keep me not in the Darkness (of Ignorance), but lead me towards the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge),
3: (O Lord) Keep me not in the (Fear of) Death (due to the bondage of the Mortal World), but lead me towards the Immortality (gained by the Knowledge of the Immortal Self beyond Death),
4: Om, (May there be) Peace, Peace, Peace (at the the three levels – Adidaivika, Adibhautika and Adhyatmika).

I wish that mysterious cycle of “Exist – Evolve – Express – Extinguish” will be better understood someday.

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||
