बंदर से इंसान तक या इंसान से भगवान तक!

हमारी यह धरा विविध प्रकार के रंग-रूप वाले फल-फूल, पशु-पक्षी आदि लाखों जीवों की गृहस्थली है। यह विविधता और इंद्रधनुषी विभिन्नता- सृष्टि की बगिया में भिन्‍न-भिन्‍न फुलवारी कैसे आई? उत्तरस्वरूप विज्ञान-जगत ने अपना मत रखा, चार्लस डार्विन के विकासवाद के रूप में। विकासवादी डार्विन इस विविधता का आधारभूत कारण सृष्टि में व्याप्त एक आरोहण क्रम को बताते हैं। ... इसी कारण एक-कोशिकीय से बहु-कोशिकीय जीव, सरल से जटिल संरचनायेँ, विभिन्न रूप वा क्षमता वाले जीव प्रकृति की अचेतन ऊर्जा शक्ति से गठित होते गए। एक लम्बी समयावधि के बाद, इसी प्रक्रिया द्वारा अंततः 'मनुष्य' की रचना हुई।  ... …

बातचीत करना भी एक कला है!

यह प्रयोग है १३वीं शताब्दी का, जिसे रोम के राजा फ्रेडरिक ने नवजात शिशुओं पर किया था। फ्रेडरिक ने अपने राज्य में पैदा हुए कुछ नवजात बच्चों को ऐसी परिस्थिति में रखने का आदेश दिया, जहाँ पर उनसे कोई भी बात नहीं कर सकता था। बच्चों की देखभाल के लिए दासियाँ तो थीं, पर वे न बच्चों से और न ही आपस में बात कर सकती थीं। बच्चों के आसपास के माहॉल में सिर्फ चुप्पी ही होती थी।. दरअसल ऐसा प्रयोग करके राजा यह जानना चाहता था कि इंसान की वास्तविक भाषा क्या है? इस प्रयोग से मनुष्य की मूल भाषा तो सामने नहीं आई। पर जो परिणाम सामने आया, वह अति भयंकर था। जिन बच्चों को बिना बातचीत वाले माहौल  में रखा गय…

मुरझाई कलियाँ! (बाल-मज़दूरी की तपिश में कुम्हलाता बचपन!)

सच... किस तरह बाल-मज़दूरी की समस्या बद से बदतर होती जा रही। बच्चे- जिन्हें राष्ट्र का भविष्य कहा जाता है- आज उनकी बेहद दारूंण स्थिति हो चुकी है। छोटे-छोटे बच्चों से मज़दूरी करवा कर उन्हें शोषित किया जाता है। इस गंभीर स्थिति में सुधार व बदलाव कैसे लाया जाए- इसी खोज में निकले हैं, बाल-मज़दूरों के करूण क्रंदन से व्यथित एक योगी पुरुष तथा उनके संग समाजशास्त्र के दो शोधकर्ता मित्र- अभिनव और अखिलेश। ... योगी पुरुष- यदि बाल-मज़दूरी को समाज से हटाना है, तो इसके लिए हमें सबसे पहले समस्या के मूल कारण तक पहुँचना होगा। कारण पहचान कर फिर उसे जड़ समेत समाज की भूमि पर से उखाड़ फेंकना होगा। ताकि,…

That’s why Parents are so Special

… No one in this entire cosmos can replicate the plae of God and the embodiment of God (a true Spiritual Master) in our life.  But, it is also true that after their position, the only people whose place cannot be replaced in this universe are parents. Because, if God blesses us with breaths, then it is our parents who help us materialise God’s gift in terms of this precious birth. … They love us, pamper us, and for them we (the children) are the assets of their life. Parents can literally abandon anything for their children. Once, an 11 year old girl asked her father, “Papa, what will you give me on my eighteenth birthday?” With a blend of pain and happiness in his eyes, the father said, “Dear, there is a long time for that day to come. But, I promise that I will give you the most precious thing of my life on that day.” … A week before her 18th birthday… The father was crying as his daughter was being carried to the operation theatre for a major surgery. …Just before the operation, the girl said, “Papa, are the doctors saying to you that I am going to die because of my poor heart?” The father confidently replied, “No dear, you will surely live.” And … Girl: “But papa, how can you be so sure?” the father turned around and said-“Because I know that nothing can happen to you.” Three days after the operation… she was lying on the bed as she r…

O My Young Sons! Let the World Salute You!

It is seen how the present-day youth has deviated from the ideals and principles characterising a real youth, thus assuming the image of a bane instead of a boon for the society. An attempt was made to trigger a serious contemplation in the youth to remove the blemishes that have resulted in his downfall, so that the utter loss to the invaluable youthfulness of the vast population of youth can be prevented. In order to restore the glory of his youth, it was proposed to draft a manifesto, which has the potential to carve out a perfect youth, and which allows the youth to fully-realise his unlimited storehouse of potential and capabilities. MANIFESTO FOR BECOMING A REAL YOUTH:   Attribute 1: The Richest in Character  When it comes to the making of a real youth, then the attribute which plays the prime role in this regard is his strong and rich character. Character is the foundation stone of one’s personality. … A youth rich in character, is indeed a blessing for mankind and also the dire need of the hour; because, such youngsters alone have always initiated a revolution for bringing a change in the society to make a beautiful world. But how a youth remain always rich in character and become a real asset to the nation?  What is the methodology for attaining the heights of a strong character? Attribute2: Broader Perspective… Someone has aptly quoted-‘You must look within for value, but must look beyond for perspective.&rsqu…

Self-Actualisation: The New-Age Management Mantra

Rapid Developments in Information technology in today’s Digital Age are leading to a collective shift in human consciousness. The era of worldwide internet has not only enabled us to have better awareness about ourselves, but also about others and the world around. Anything we want to know and explore about ourselves is available online; be it treatment to our illnesses, solutions to behavioural problems, sorting out personality or relationship issues, etc. Further, blogging and social networking has brought us closer, well-connected, and is allowing us to be better equipped in decision-making by rapid sharing of information and exchange of advices/opinions. … Undoubtedly, we are evolving into higher dimensions of conscious awareness and we are constantly striving t make healthier, intelligent, and best choices, which are propagating our consciousness towards Self-Actualisation. Another shift happening in our consciousness is that in spite of all conveniences of modern life, there is more crime and violence around and we live in insecurity and mistrust. Despite working in comfort of our  air-conditioned offices, and material abundance att homes, we are tensed, stressed, and depressed than ever before. And this is forcing our mindsets to think beyond materialism, searching happiness in the spiritual realms. … Interestingly, this contemplative mindset is again a manifestation of our evolving life towards a ‘Self-Actualisation’ consciousnes…
