आभा मंडल आकर्षक कैसे बनता है?

विज्ञान एक बहुत ही विशाल सागर है, जो कई वैज्ञानिक तथ्यों की नदियों के मेल से बना है। हमने अखण्ड ज्ञान मासिक पत्रिका के माध्यम से कई बार दर्शाया है कि यह विज्ञान रूपी सागर अपने अंदर अनेकानेक बहुमूल्य आध्यात्मिक मोतियों को सहेजे हुए है। इस बार हम पुन: इस सिंधु की गहराई में उतरते हुए आपके समक्ष लाए हैं, मनोरंजन व समाजविज्ञान से जुड़े कुछ ऐसे प्रयोग जिनमें अध्यात्म के महान सूत्र संजोए हुए हैं। ... हेलो इफेक्ट 'हेलो इफेक्ट' एक ऐसा 'प्रभाव' है, जिससे एक द्रष्टा किसी इंसान या व्यक्ति के गुणों को देखकर उसकी ओर आकर्षित हो जाता है और उसे पसंद करने लगता है। मनोवैज्ञानिक एडवर्ड थ…

स्थिर मन ही स्थायी सफलता का आधार!

घर और ऑफिस के कार्यों से लदी ज़िन्दगी अक्सरां हमारे शरीर के साथ-साथ मन को भी थका देती है। किंतु इससे पहले कि यह मन की थकान हमें हमारी सफलता से दूर ले जाए, आवश्यक है कि हम इस थकान को ही अपने जीवन से दूर कर दें। इसके लिए हम खोजते हैं उन पलों को, उन बातों को, उन विचारों को, उन उदाहरणों को जो हमें प्रेरणाएँ दे जाएँ। अंग्रेजी भाषा में प्रेरणा को 'Inspiration' कहते हैं। 'Inspiration' का एक अर्थ  'Breath-in' यानी 'साँस लेना' भी होता है। तो हम कह सकते है कि प्रेरणाएँ हमारे लिए साँस लेने की तरह ज़रूरी हैं। क्योंकि प्रेरणा से भरे प्रसंग, दृष्टांत, उदाहरण इत्यादि हमारे समस्या से भरे जीवन को सुकून की साँस …

GO GREEN!

Here is a snapshot of what difference greenery can bring to us: "The study found that an increase of 11 trees per city block was comparable to an increase in annual personal income of $20,000 and moving to a neighbourhood with $20,000 higher median income or being 1.4 years younger."             - The University of  Chicago, reported in 2015 in The Washington Post ... " Desk workers, who can see  a green environment from their desks, experience 23% less time off sick than those that have an entirely urban view. Similarly, these workers also report greater job satisfaction."                - K. L. Wolf; Human dimensions of the urban forest Urban nature benefits: psycho- social dimensions of people and plants (1998) " A study in New York states that asthama rates among children aged four and five fell by a quarter for every extra 343 trees per square kilometer. The presence of street trees was linked with a 29% reduction in early childhood asthama."   -G. S. Lovasi, J. W. Quinn, K. M. Neckerman, M. S. Perzanowski, and A. Rundle (2008) In view of the above and innumerable other benefits, on juxtaposiing these with the depleting green covers all across the globe, a clear inference can be drawn- "Trees are not just significant for living; instead, trees are life  themselves!&quo…

The age of digitisation has helped memories stay afloat in our mind in many ways than one... be it sharing our pictures on Facebook, Instagram, or just sharing them through Whatsapp. It has all become so easy  and we truely stay connected by keeping our dear ones updated. Let's peep into the past, when cameras with film rolls  were used... and those rolls had to be taken to the studios to get washed. And then came the age of digital point and shoot cameras with memory slots; SLRs were extensively used by professional photographers. However, in this day and age, while the number of SLRs with the masses is increasing, so is the camera quality in our handy cell phones. Earlier the platform of sharing memories through photographers was occasional, when we met our family and relatives. Physical albums were maintained and a description was shared with each flip in the page of album. Physical albums are a passe now. Not to miss, the traditional photo album acted as a medium to sit together and look at pictures and go back  into the memory lane and discuss extensively about each event that took place when the picture was captured. What is it that we, in the past paced and digitised world, really do to share our memories today? Well, we just click and upload. The word rapid falls short in explaining the pace at which times are changing. The rate of change is exponential! With changing times, not only cameras, there has been a rapid change in telephone technolo…
