Welcome yourself to the fact that life will get more complicated as time goes on, there is eventually no escape from this harsh world, which is ready to grab us. Done it? Congrats to you, for you are one step ahead than the others when it comes to accepting the reality. But wait; are you really tired from accepting the harsh truth way too often? Do you want to go away from all this at least for some time and repose and be calm and relaxed? Well if you think of going into your childhood days this is definitely not possible. But one thing which is definitely possible is to free your mind from all the worries and yes you are thinking correctly and just meditate.
Wait a second, I know some of you in fact most of you might be asking where do I have the time to meditate after my tedious schedule, for obviously it is better to sleep and snore instead of sitting in a stiff position for hours. Well, for those nurturing and harboring this thought let me just tell you, that meditation is definitely not enduring pains upon one’s own self  to top all the others which we are already getting,  meditation focuses on freeing the mind from all this, it is the most necessary balm on our troubled lives.
But definitely we just can’t start like anything; we need to find a reason a well-reasoned reason that will give us the inspiration to meditate. What if I tell you, that baring the physical benefits that meditation gives, it also keeps us mentally on a stable position at a time when we often find others going nuts about it. Is it enough motivation? If not then will the fact that those who meditate on a regular basis not only maintains a calm stature but also seems to be living longer compared to those who don’t provide the boost.

 Well if this has provided the alma mater for your meditation, then the most immediate step for you is to sit on a calm and quiet place, close your eyes and breathe deeply for some seconds thinking “good in and bad out” after doing this for a couple of minutes and gaining some stature on your troubled mind, once you start to feel relaxed try to sit in the position of “VAIROCHANA” legs crossed, palms on top, shoulders balanced. The reason why this posture is important is for it is believed that when our body is straight the energy channels find better access in our body if that feels to painful then sit on any position in which you feel comfortable and start meditating
For starters who are too confused on what to meditate upon simply counting and concentrating on the inhale and exhale process is quite enough. But obviously those who are sure that once they will sit after a tired day they will definitely be quite lazy to concentrate elsewhere for them walking meditation is also helpful. Simply counting the steps or concentrating on how we land our foot as we take each step will also suffice
At the end of the day meditation definitely helps us to gain a deeper insight both in our body and mind, it is through this that most of our pains become endurable, and once we understand the reason why we are inflicted with pains in our life the whole process will definitely become worthwhile to experience. Therefore there will definitely come a time when we won’t get affected by pains anymore.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…



“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”  ― Franz Kafka
It is said that the world’s two most prized gifts are the love of a woman and the beauty of youth. While we always talk about women, today let’s take this opportunity to talk about youth. Youth is the most treasured trait that a person can have, without it a person can be 45 but feel like 85. Youth or young people around the globe are always treated as not only the “future” of humankind but also looked upon as the envied lot, as their energy levels are still at their peak. So let’s take this time to learn a bit more about them:
1.The definition varies from country to country. According to the United Nations, “Youth” are the people who are of ages 15-24. However different countries have different definitions. In Nigeria youth are termed to be people between ages 18 and 35. In India, according to the National Youth Policy 2014, …

Teacher, often described as our friend, philosopher and guide, plays a vital role in everyone’s life. A teacher has the capability to guide his or her students and give them immense courage and inspiration. We all remember at least one teacher from our school throughout our lives, isn’t it? It is because he or she has been able to put an impact in your life. Teaching is an art and an educator needs to find several methods to teach the students and these ways may differ every time with each new batch of students. An educator needs to perform every day in class as per the needs and demands of the batch and we always remember the best performance althroughout. Hichki, a recent film by Siddharth Malhotra is about a brilliant teacher, Naina Mathur (Rani Mukerji) who has Tourette’s syndrome, lands a job in an elite school after several failures and rejections. She puts aside her problem and overcomes all challenges to…
