Kevada Teej – Goddess Parvati’s Dedication Towards Lord Shiva

All set for the Teej puja
Sand Shiv Linga made at home
The leaf tied with red thread is the Kevada leaf

Kevada Teej, a festival celebrated in many states of India, especially Gujarat. It is also called Hartalika Teej. “Teej” means third and this day falls on the third day after the full moon or new moon night in the month of Bhadrapad. Hence, it is called Kevada Teej. This festival marks the union of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva.

For many years Parvati tried to impress Shiva for his love and offered prayers to a Linga. After realising Parvati’s endless and constant efforts to win his love, Shiva appeared in front of Parvati while she was offering Kevada leaf to the Linga. Shiva is fond of Bilwa leaves but as Parvati offered Kevada to the Linga on the third say of the new moon night, Lord Shiva named this day as Kevada Teej. Thus, Lord Shiva agreed Parvati’s win over him and his love and the universe witnessed the divine wedding of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva.

This festival is celebrated with great pomp by the Hindu women, both married and unmarried. The unmarried pray for a husband like Lord Shiva whereas the married offer prayers for long life and good health of their children, husband and self.

This festive occasion is also called Hariyali Teej. It is said that Lord Shiva bestows us with greenery and vegetation for the well-being of humanity, that no being of the universe remains without food. Hence, along with Kevada leaves and flowers, leaves of other plants are also offered.

Growing up, I have always seen my mother performing the rituals of this day, which include fasting, chanting Shlokas and Kathas related to Goddess Parvati and her devotion towards Lord Shiva and how she always tried to protect Lord Shiva from Asuras and other bad omen. However, when I grew up I felt that why should there be a need to fast and offer prayers and puja for a husband. I believed that even without such grandeur a wife can simply pray for the health and well-being of her husband. But eventually, when I got married, I could totally connect to what and how my mother felt about my father and that she would not fail to leave any stone unturned if it’s the matter of her partner’s wellness.

These are tough times where you have limited resources and hence festivals are now given some different kind of fervour. Even today, when me and my mother performed the rituals, we had limited things to offer to Lord Shiva’s linga that my father made out of sand for us. However, we managed to still finish the puja with same fun and joy and prayed for the well-being of the world over. It’s such times that teach us how we can find happiness even under limitations.

Let us hope we get over this tough pandemic time soon so that the world can be as beautiful as ever with everybody around us happy and joyous. Let us all try to continue to contribute towards the betterment of this world.

Rise and shine.

You and I in this Beautiful World ❤️

Love is Me and You

On the festive occasion of Kevda Teej, I pray for the health, wellbeing and long life of my better half, my partner in crime and my best friend; my Husband. I would like to dedicate the below lines to him.

The silhouette of me and you walking hand in hand down the beach.

The moment of me and you sitting near the window watching the sunset.

The insanity of me and you trying to touch the far off horizon.

The skipped heartbeat of me and you every time we look at each other to fall in love again and again.

The artfulness of me and you holding the moon in the palm of our hands.

The euphoria of me and you while talking to each other for hours together.

The elation of me and you holding each other’s waist walking down the lane.

The habit of me and you sipping coffee from the same cup in the evening.

The joyousness of me and you wetting our hands in the ocean from a ferry.

The charisma of me and you looking into each other’s eyes and understanding the unspoken.

The magnetism of me and you comforting each other while kissing each other’s forehead.

The gravity between me and you coming closer to listen to each other’s throbbing hearts.

Rise and shine.

Happy Krishna Janmashtami!!!

I am the Creator, I am the Destroyer
I am the Maker of the Universe

“Do everything you have to do, but not with greed, not with ego, not with lust, not with envy; but with love, compassion, humility and devotion.” – Bhagwad Gita quotes of Lord Shri Krishna

Wish one and all a very auspicious Krishna Janmashtami. Let us all pray and hope that our world will soon be free from evil and that good times will again knock our doors. Let us all try to participate in humanitarian deeds and contribute towards the betterment of this beautiful place called World.

Rise and shine.

Flowers, The Most Divine Creations

A bloom of hope
Nature’s secret magic unleashed
A bloom of grace
Divinity created
Flowers are earth’s smile

Flowers, the happiness of the soul. It is rightly said that a new sunshine brings new hope; however, the bloom of a flower adds light to that hope. Life throws many challenges but every single bloom helps fade the dark moments. Flowers are themselves divine creations that Mother Nature have gifted us. Have you ever felt not to smile while looking at a flower?

Have you ever noticed that flowers are never jealous of each other, they never hurt each other, they never compete with each other; because for them, their sole purpose is to just bloom and bestow smiles. Flowers are the cutest revelations of the nature’s secret. They never distract from the cause of their creation, which is to share happiness.

Every petal of a flower is symbolic of grace and delight. With a heart of gold, these speechless beings brighten your life. Our earth expresses it’s joy through these blossoms, which make them the soul of Mother Nature. Flowers, therefore, are worthy enough to be called “Miracles” that we witness each day.

Every flower gives us a message, a message so optimistic and practical, “Allow yourself to bloom with grace and dignity so as to bring smiles and spread happiness.” God’s soulful creations called flowers may have different names and colours, but don’t forget that they required both sun and rain to grow. Similarly, compliments and criticism are equally important for us to become decent human beings. Is this lesson from these beautiful creations not enough for us to understand the values and virtues of life?

Rise and shine.

Thank You 700…

And still counting…

I just can’t express my feelings at this moment. To me, this is the platform where I express and open up myself. Hence, 700 is indeed a real milestone for me.

It all started from the day that I had 1 follower and to me it felt like, “miles to go before I sleep,” but here it is, 700. This platform and all the followers mean the world to me. Day in and day out, these fellow bloggers have only and only added to my motivation. A big THANK YOU to all of you for your continued support through reading my blogs and penning down your words of appreciation for me.

THANK YOU WordPress and all my followers (indeed more to come) for being there for me and my words. I hope this little journey of my words will get more and more love and affection from these 700 (and beyond) inspirational ideals.

Let us all ‘Rise and Shine’ to make this world a better and more beautiful place for the coming generations.

Rise and shine.

Mistakes Are Lessons of Wisdom

Make mistakes, but learn from them

The true definition of “SELF” lies in the realization of a mistake and thereafter pursuing the attempt to correct one.

The truth also stands in the fact that making mistakes in life doesn’t mean that one should keep paying for those mistakes for a lifetime. You can’t make the same mistake twice because for once it’s a mistake but the second time it’s either an error or a choice.

Never be proud of the mistakes you make but always be proud to learn from them and ultimately make yourself a better person. Stop grieving and wasting time on the mistakes made instead get over them, make them your past and move on. The only aspect that should matter is that those mistakes and their grievances should not ruin the person in you.

Let a mistake be the lesson of wisdom for the past can’t be changed but the future is in your hands. People may judge you by the mistake you make, they may forget your good deeds but never feel disheartened and trust yourself to fake those judgements and keep executing the best of yourself.

The courage to admit a mistake and not walk away owing to the consequences is the most noteworthy act.

Rise and shine.

Live Your Dreams

Who said dreams can happen only when asleep?

The best dreams and their fulfillment happen while awake. Never let your dreams go off, no matter how unachievable they are. Dare to dream and believe in yourself and your dreams, a bright future walks towards you easy.

Dream big and cut short the stature of your fears to spectate how the dreams pave the way as you follow them. To dream is to believe and to believe is to conquer yourself and the world. Dreams build hopes and hopes turn into actions which when executed roar out loud to bring you the fortune.

Travel the path of adventure because life is an adventure and dreams are the pathways taking you ahead for that adventure. Actions are the moderators between dreams and reality. Stretch and heighten your actions to reach the dreams of life and this would become possible only if you have the courage to pursue those dreams.

If you don’t dream, you don’t achieve it.

Make dreams your wings and learn to use the wings to fly high. Dreams make you confident enough to live the life that you have dared to imagine. Inject your dreams with energy because dreams take us forward whereas travelling down the memory lane will take you back to the past which isn’t fruitful.

Sow the seeds of future with your dreams for dreams are realities in waiting.

Rise and shine.

What It Takes To Be An Expert!!!

An Expert was once a Beginner

Nobody is born genius. Every single individual has to begin from somewhere and then after making a series of mistakes and corrections becomes an expert. All in all, an expert was once a beginner who took all the pain through all the odds that came in the way as obstacles and managed to emerge out successful.

However, learning and gaining experience should be an ongoing process even for the expert because only then one would keep attaining expertise. Become an expert in honesty and humanity because then nobody will stop you becoming an expert in your own field. Try would be the word for anyone to climb the staircase of expertise and becoming an expert.

Let failures be a part of your journey because they tend to strengthen you in moving on and not give up, and this is how experts are born. An expert is the one who measures the priorities before making decisions and such thoughtful approach earns prowess.

The efforts that you put up to achieve something and the attitude that you carry for such efforts sum up to grade the chances of becoming an expert. Give yourself room to work hard, learn, fail, rise up from failures and believing in yourself for this ultimately will make room for your success and reaching the zenith to be an expert.

Always think you can because if you do so you definitely will.

Rise and shine.

Selective Decisive Denial for Good

Selective Denial

In this rapidly changing and trending world, people have now learnt to survive with reality and facts. Denying something doesn’t mean you are running away from the challenges or the actualities. It simply means that you are decisive and selective enough to make your own choices and then putting your best foot forward.

Denial doesn’t always mean staying into the boundaries of comfort and contentment but rather it is like taking a leap ahead to explore the new horizons while not crossing the same self-created fences. To deny may many times ruin away the fortune wave approaching you but if the denial is at the right time and with a solid reasoning, you will surely be blessed again with the experience of a whole new world of opportunities.

Never deny on putting your wholehearted efforts into something because then you may realize soon that you are walking alone on the path of failure. Determination for the achievement of goals should not suffer the bitterness of denial for efficiency for it will be the greatest setback for an intellectual mindset.

Denial is a selective approach towards acceptance of realities.

A positive attitude with denial for nothing less than precision and perfection is the key towards every good thing in life making this world an absolute heaven.

Rise and shine.

Beyond the Horizon!!!

Set your sight on the inner Horizon

We all live under the same sky but we do not have the same horizon. We humans tend to believe in the horizon of innumerable impossibilities; however, we definitely do not recognize the infinite possibilities beyond those impossibilities.

But, have we ever tried to understand the fact that with the help of your inner strength every impossible horizon is achievable? The synchronization of your mind, body and soul will always lead you towards attaining panache.

One must develop great control for the freedom of inner self so as to defeat the enemies of inferiority and low esteem. Your inner determined voice will lead you beyond the horizon where you’ll find your dreams. So; wake up, get up and get going in search of your own horizon for your own dreams to chase.

Rise and shine.

A Letter to “Rain”

The hypnotizing Rain
The enchanting Rain

Dear Rain,

How hypnotizing of you that I always find my peace and calm in your presence. With you, I feel the rhythm of life and the feeling of joy. To me, the sound of your thunder and the spark of your lightening are not a scare, rather they bring me peace of mind. Every drop of yours makes me feel as if I am dancing on your tunes.

Hey rain, people name me not a pluviophilic, instead they call me crazy because of the love that I have for you. Your drops fall on my head as silver beads and they flow down to kiss my cheeks. It’s beyond your imagination how much loved I feel with your touch.

Lovely rain, you are a feeling to me and not just water pouring down the sky. During those thunderous nights, I feel as if you are singing a lullaby to me to gift me a restful sleep. With the commencement of monsoon days, my coffee cup awaits you because your absence makes it lonely.

My dear Rain, with the smell of wet earth, I start prepping myself to jump in the puddles and dance on the notes of your drops. I love you so much that I even never wait for the beautiful rainbow because then it would mean we would part from each other and I have to suffer being away from you.

Soulful rain, keep falling as you have many more lovers like me and more than us even other beings on earth as well as the earth itself needs you. We owe our existence to you as you are the source of happiness and smile that Mother Nature has gifted us with. Fall rain fall.

Wholeheartedly yours,


Rise and shine.

Lockdown 3.0: Happy International Family Day

Be Loyal Amongst the Fake Crowd

The greatest virtue of life is to be loyal to yourself come whatever may. The second best virtue is to stay loyal to your family as well as those who stand by you and defend you in your thick and thin. Be loyal to the ones who are true to you even in your absence. Being loyal means everything to the people who respect your opinions and decisions and not just portray you as imposing your views on them.

But is it worth being so loyal to everyone? Well, loyalty goes in return for honesty. In straight words, the ones who are consistent, stable and honest to you should be rewarded with your loyalty. A loyal person always has to go through all the troubles of life but during the tough times it’s patience one has to hold. Time will be harsh to the loyals, but no matter how many times your loyalty is tested, you never lose this nobility and stay strong.

Being loyal will help you overcome mountains of difficulties and this characteristic will in turn earn you honour and esteem. Stay loyal to your dear ones even when they are not right, try to make them realize their mistake and lead them to a righteous path. Loyalty is uncommon but it is in fact the world for you, so make it not an option but a priority for it will strengthen your ethics and determination.

Rise and shine.
