The End Of life


Yesterday, I attended the funeral of my maternal grand-father......

It was really an eye-opening event of my life..

I realised that life is so precious....

We waste it in fighting ,,frustation,,,,and worries and tension..

One day we all have to go from this world...

I also felt ,that how is it possible for a son to put fire to his own father/mother's dead body...

I think, I won't be able to do it...

I realised how little time is left with my parents,,,in which I should try to give them all the happiness ,I can give them..

Death is really the saddest part of our lives....

but we can't run from it,,,nor we can stop living with the fear of dying....

But we should live happily and let others also live their lives happily...

whatever the amount of money ,we collect ,,we won't be able to take a penny with us...

Money should not be the aim of our lives,,,

Earn as much in which you and your family can lead a happy and comfortable life...

this is what I wanted to say,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

This year, akshay-tritiya is on two days,19 and 20 April.

According to vedic calendar ,this is considered to be one of the four most auspicious days of the year.

Akshay means ,"that never ends"

you always achieve success on the money spent on any new work started on this day.

It is believed ,that the Gold bought today never ends.
Lord Vishnu ,himself ,protects that wealth.

So welcome this day,,by buying Gold on this day

13 APRIL ,1919

13 APRIL,1919,

You must be wondering ,what has happened to me,,have I forgotten today's date...

No friends, I have not forgotten anything ,I just want you to remember the JALLIANWALA BAGH MASSACRE, that happened on 13 april,1919.

It was also a Baisakhi day,,as today is Baisakhi.

General Dyer ,had issued an order prohibiting public meetings and assemblies.

On 13 April ,Baisakhi Day, a large crowd of people, many of whom were visitors from neighbouring villages who had come to the town to attend the Baisakhi celebrations,collected in the Jallianwala bagh to attend a public meeting.

Situated in the heart of town of Amritsar, Punjab, India, Jallianwala Bagh was more or less an open enclosure with tall buildings on all the four sides with a narrow passage which led into it.

General Dyer ,incensed that his orders were disobeyed, ordered his troops to fire upon the unarmed crowd. The shooting continued for ten minutes.
General Dyer had not thought it necessary to issue any warning to the people nor was he deterred by the fact that the ground was totally hemmed in from all sides by high walls which left little chance for escape.

Eyewitness account of the merciless massacre beggar description.
As the machine guns started raining bullets, the dead piled on the dead and wounded upon the wounded. There being no exit, there was a general stampede; women and children being crushed under the heels of those who trying to escape firing. The wailing of women and crying of children were drowned in the fearful blast of the guns spewing fire.
General Dyer's loyal soldier released their triggers only when they had exhausted their ammunition. And then leaving the dead and the wounded where they were, Dyer left the ghastly scene along with his troops. Far from attending to the wounded, there was none to offer even water to the dying.

According to the official version, 379 people were killed on the spot and thrice as many wounded to die later. The unofficial number of the dead runs into four figures.

This was the Jallianwala Bagh tragedy...

Just pause for a moment and think about it..

Happy Baisakhi !!!
