  • What an Idea Sir Ji.

     

    What an idea, sir ji.

    An Indian woman buys a New Sim Card, puts it in her phone and decides to surprise her husband who is seated on the couch in the living room.

    She goes to the kitchen, calls her husband from the new number:

    “Hello Darling”

    The Husband responds in a low tone:

    “Let me call you back later Honey, The dumb lady is in the kitchen..

    When last heard of, the chap was being treated for burns in the Emergency Ward.

  • Room Service!

    One morning in a posh hotel’s restaurant, a guest called over the head waiter.

    “Good morning, sir! I’d like to order two boiled eggs, one of them so under-cooked that it’s runny, and the other so overcooked that it’s tough.”

    “Wwwhat?” stammered the head waiter.

    “Let me finish,” said the guest. I also want some rubbery bacon, burnt toast, and butter that’s so cold it’s impossible to spread.’

    The head waiter opened his mouth to protest, but once again was shushed by the guest, who continued, “Finally, I’ll have a pot of extra-weak coffee, served at room temperature.”

    The bewildered waiter almost stumbled, he was so shaken.

    “Sir! We cannot possibly serve such an awful breakfast to you here!”

    “Why not?” the guest replied. “You did yesterday!

  • Gomutra – Use of Indian cow’s urine as a spiritual healing remedy

    1. Introduction to Gomutra

    Gomutra is recommended as a healing aid in Ayurveda. At SSRF, Gomutra (an Indian cow’s urine) is often used as a spiritual healing remedy and we have been witness to some astonishingly positive results. In this article, we share with you some of our findings onGomutra, its mechanism of action, and how to use it as a spiritual healing remedy.

    2. The spiritual properties of Gomutra and spiritual healing benefits

    Amazingherbalremedies.com provides a laboratory analysis of cow’s urine and shows that it contains nitrogen, sulphur, phosphate, sodium, manganese, carbolic acid, iron, silicon, chlorine, magnesium, melci, citric, titric, succenic, calcium salts, Vitamin A, B, C, D, E, minerals, lactose, enzymes, creatinine, hormones and gold acids.

    However, is this chemical composition a magic formula for spiritual healing? Our research shows that there is in fact an X-factor above and beyond Gomutra’s chemical composition that actually makes it special as a spiritual healing tool. We found that the chemical composition has no relevance to Gomutra’s healing ability.

    Gomutra, though it is inanimate, has the ability to attract Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya) which in turn creates an increase in the Sattvacomponent and therefore facilitates spiritual healing. One may question why an Indian cow’s urine has such special healing abilities. Just as water has the innate property to cleanse and fire to burn, the Indian cow is the only animal which has the ability to attract the frequencies of all the Deities in the universe. As a result, any discharges or by-products such as milk, Gomutra (cow’s urine) and cow dung inherit these frequencies and are considered sattvik. The Indian cow’s urine has the ability to attract up to 5% of the frequencies of all theDeities in the universe.

    To put this percentage in perspective:

    ·         The spiritual practice of chanting the Name of God according to the religion of birth has the potential to attract the frequencies of all the Deities in the universe and increase them all up to 30%

    ·         But when a person begins to chant the Name of God as per the religion of birth or their family Deity’s Name, their ability, at the beginning, to attract the frequencies of all Deities is negligible.

    ·         It is only when a person at the 50% spiritual level chants the Name of God as per the religion of birth, or his family Deity’s Name, that he is able to attract up to 5% of the frequencies of all the Deities in the universe.

  • Life Tips

    We love ourselves even after doing many mistakes. Then how can we hate others for their one mistake. Think before you hate someone or hate yourself.

    Swimming along the flow is effortless but swimming against it needs effort. Don’t go the way life takes you, but take life the way you wanna go. Dare to be different.

    The greatest advantage of speaking the truth is that you don’t have to remember what you said. Think about it.

    A beautiful saying: If your eyes are positive you would like all the people in the world. But if your tongue is positive all the people in the world like you.
    Life is about the art of drawing without an eraser, so be careful while taking decisions about the most valuable pages of your life.

    A nice thought: I met money and said why everyone runs behind you, you are just a piece of paper. Money smiled and said of-course I am just a piece of paper, but I haven’t seen a dustbin yet in my whole life.

    Life is like a coin. Pleasure and Pain are the two sides. Only one side is visible at a time. But remember other side is also waiting for it’s turn.

    If you like someone, show it. It will be sweeter then telling. But if you don’t like someone. Just tell it. It will be less painful then
    showing it.

    A very true but strange quote: Love doesn’t start in morning & end in evening. It starts when you don’t need it & ends when you need it most.

    What’s greater then mom’s love? Which pillow is better then lover’s lap? Which company’s better then friends? There are some things in life with no substitutes. Love them forever.

    A cute story: A man daily sent a rose to his wife. One day he died, but his wife still received roses. She asked the floweriest. He said, your husband paid advance for your whole life. Moral: Love someone forever

    A boy loved a girl so much. One day he proposed her. But she refused. Still he was not sad. His friends asked him, didn’t you feel bad? He said, why should I feel? I lost the one who never loved me. But she lost the one who really loves her

  • Pigeons, Get me a Trophy

    PIGEON, GET ME A TROPHY

    How do you make the common pigeon listen to your commands, identify colours and win fiercely fought competitions for you? There is a science involved

    Atul Thakur & Amin Ali | TNN

    Next time you shoo away the pigeon pecking at a morsel on your window sill, spare some thought. The little birdie hides inside it rare talents you have never known – like making sense of colours — yellow, red, green — and understanding human sounds. Or, for that matter, differentiating between the paintings of Monet and Picasso. Seriously.
    But there’s something else it is really good at – winning competitions, making thousands of humans flock to kabootarbaazi events like the one in Agra that Sunday Times attended in the last week of December. What people go for is not just the thrill of seeing pigeons doing our bidding, but the amazing science of training them to do so.


    At Kuberpur (Agra), on Christmas day,
    crowds went wild as huge bunches of pigeons took off from the ground, swirled in the sky and landed back after flying in neat formations and in low circles. The khalifas, or pigeon fanciers, showed off their skills as they controlled the flight path of the birds with peculiar call signs. The trick for someone to win the competition is to trap birds of their rivals and add those to their own numbers. For instance, a khalifa will win if he starts off with 100 pigeons and ends up with 150 — the 50 weaned off from various competitors.
    Kabootarbaazi, also called kulkulbaazi, is an annual festival that many say are attracting more youngsters each passing year, pulled to such events for the love of one of India’s oldest sports. There were 30,000-plus spectators this year, and organisers say the number has been going up steadily.
    “The competition was revived in 2004 and draws some of the best pigeon fanciers of the area,” says Dinesh Choudhary, president of the Agra-Firozabad Kabootarbaazi Association. “In Agra, the venue is changed every day and the birds don’t get the advantage of recognising the lofts in which they were raised,” he adds.
    The contest’s uniqueness even drew IT professional Pranay Praksh and his friends. “We were celebrating Christmas at Agra when we heard about this competition,” he says. “Soon, we started finding out details and realised it’s pretty big. It’s great we have made it here as this one’s been quite an experience.”
    On the first day – the festival of sorts goes on for a week – the mounds between the mustard fields were packed with people gathered there to watch pigeons that are literally raised like kids and fed on a rich diet of dry fruits, desi ghee, millet and corn. A typical khalifa spends hours every day to train his birds. It pays off well. “I am a regular visitor to the event. This year I brought my daughter, too, because there is no better way to celebrate Christmas than to watch the Taj and kabootarbazi,” says Mohammad Abrar who had come all the way from old Delhi.


    How does it work? Primarily, the birds are trained to recognise the voice, whistle and hand gestures of their masters. Teams first gather around and take positions on vantage mounds, marking their territories with flags and a circular landing pad of similar colour. Every team has to fly its pigeon-group at the same time, let the birds blend together in air and then finally
    show their skills by calling the birds
    back. The pigeons are trained to respond in particular ways by identifying different stimuli. A whistle, for
    example, means that one is flying in the right direction; hands and flags are used to make the birds change their path, and “Aaao”, typically, is a call for return to base.
    As the competition begins, the khalifas order their birds to join other groups in the air. After a few rounds of flight, they start instructing their birds to fly in different directions. While the best-trained birds come back intact, the lesser ones get confused, fall into the trap, and join rival gangs as they return to the starting point. After several rounds, the team that catches the maximum pigeons wins.
    This time, the pigeons of Ustad Anis and Khalifa Akhtar performed with commendable expertise and finesse. They were happy at the end of it. Beaming with joy, Akhtar said, “In the worst scenario, our pigeons, sometimes worth over Rs 2.5 lakh, can all get caught in rival traps within the span of an hour. It is not just pride that is at stake.”
    But on December 30, after six days of excitement, it was Ali Sher Pehalwan’s team that was declared the winner. The pigeons will go back to better and richer food, with more proteins perhaps, and their masters will carry with them the joy they gave the spectators and the extra sharpness they added to the amazing science of pigeon flying.
    BRILLIANT BIRDS
    Nature has gifted pigeons with distinctive abilities
    These birds can position themselves by recognising earth’s magnetic field
    A recent study by German scientist Gerta Fleissner reported threedimensional iron like structure in a pigeon’s beak that helps it in precise measurement of the three components of the earth’s magnetic field
    For smaller distances, pigeons construct navigational maps
    Unlike our retina which has three different type of cone or colour receptors, pigeons have five cone types. With all possible combinations these birds can see three times as many colours as humans
    A 1995 paper released by Shigeru Watanabe, Junko Sakamoto, and Masumi Wakita indicates that the birds can be trained to differentiate between the paintings of Monet and Picasso. The birds showed that they can differentiate between cubist and impressionist art
    A 2010 study published in ‘Nature’ indicates that there is a hierarchy mechanism in small groups of pigeons. It is assumed that the mechanism can operate at multiple level if the flocks scales up to a larger group
