ठंडे मीठे शर्बत

आज के आधुनिक लोगों को छाछ, नींबू पानी, जलज़ीरा, शर्बत आदि भारतीय पारंपरिक पेयों का सेवन करने में लज्जा का आभास होता है। इसका कारण यह  है की उक्त पदार्थों का सेवन करने वालों को गरीब, पिछड़ा हुआ और असभ्य माना जाता है। बोतल बंद कोल्ड-ड्रिंक्स पीने में स्मार्टनेस समझी जाती है। पेप्सी, कोक, लिम्का, थम्स-अप, मिरीन्डा, फैंटा, ...बोतल बंद जूस  इत्यादि आज का युवा कभी भी और कहीं भी, कितनी ही मात्रा में पी सकता है। परन्तु ये पेय हमारे शरीर के लिए कितने हानिकारक हो सकते हैं, अब यह बात किसी से छिपी नहीं है। वैज्ञानिक शोधों ने यह पूरी तरह स्पष्ट कर दिया है कि ये पेय हमारे शरीर में विष का काम करत…

बिना मरम्मत वास्तुदोषों से छुटकारा!

'वास्तु' शब्द की उत्पत्ति संस्कृत के 'वस्' शब्द से हुई है। 'वस्' अर्थात वास करना या रहना। अतः वास्तु शास्त्र व वास्तु कला का अर्थ हुआ- निवास योग्य भवनों का निर्माण करने वाली कला। आपको जानकार आश्चर्य होगा कि आधुनिक सदी की इस कला की जड़ें वैदिक काल में हैं। पर क्या वैदिक वास्तुशास्त्र का उद्देश्य भी मात्र ऊँचे-ऊँचे भव्य भवनों का निर्माण करना था? या उसके भीतर उच्च वैज्ञानिक तथ्यों का समावेश था? यह भी विचारणीय है कि क्या वास्तुदोषों से मुक्त आवास ही हमारी सुख-समृद्धि के लिए उत्तरदायी है? या फिर कोई ऐसा तरीका है, जिसे हम वास्तुदोषों के कंटकों को परिणत कर सकें? इन अनसुलझी …

As the child grows, parents carefully watch his or her development of verbal language, social skills, listening and reading skills, interest in building blocks, numbers, art and science, as well as his or her curiosity with nature, animals, plants, etc. This gives parents an insight into the intellectual potential of their child.
