Do your duty without attachment April 24, 2015 17:07

Bhagavad gita Chapter 2, Verse 47karmany evadhikaras te ma phalesu kadacanama karma-phala-hetur bhur ma te sango 'stv akarmaniMeaning of words1. karmani--prescribed duties2. eva--certainly 3. adhikarah-right4. te--of you5. ma- never6. phalesu--in the fruits7. kadacana--at any time8. ma- never9. karma-phala--in the result of the work10. hetuh- cause11. bhuh- become12. ma- never13. te--of you14. sangah- attachment15. astu--be there16. akarmani--in not doingMeaning of the verseYou have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.ExplanationThere are three types of duties, prescribed duties, capricious work, and inaction. Prescribed duties are referred to activities which are performed while one is in the modes of material nature. Capricious work means actions without the sanction of authority, and inaction means not performing one's prescribed duties. The Lord Krishna advises Arjuna not be inactive, but that he perform his prescribed duty without being attached to the result. One who is attached to the result of his work is also the cause of the action. Thus he is the enjoyer or sufferer of the result of such actions.Arjuna was therefore advised by the Lord to fight as a matter of duty without attachment to the result. Any attachment, positive or negative, is cause for bondage. Inaction is sinful. Therefore, fighting as a matter of duty was the only auspicious path of salvation for Arjuna.It may be postulated that since the results of all actions are attained simply by worshipping the Supreme Lord, what is the use of any other actions other than devotion to Him? To counter this conclusion the Supreme Lord states that all living entities have the right to perform actions but none have the right to claim the results. Lord Krishna states that one should not let the anticipated results of actions are the cause of motivation. This will also help one from getting frustrated or upset when the action performed by him is not successful. This is a very important point to remember because; this will avoid desperation and gives confidence to try again and again.By Premji

Will Satyamurthy gain at least that credit ? April 24, 2015 17:00

Be it Allu Arjun's or Trivikram's craze, the Son of Satyamurthy movie earned huge openings, it managed to collect 30 crores in the first week itself. But as it is known, the craze works only for a week and the actual worth of the film can only be known from the second week. To the shock of the movie unit, the collections were dropped out very heavily.Presently the figure is doing its rounds at 44.5 crores. But now as Dochay was also released and earned a positive response, the situations are really getting tighter now for Satyamurthy team. Regardless of the other things, first of all, the world wide theatricals itself are valued at 56 crores, but the film not even crossed 50 crores yet, so it will really be a very tough time for all those distributors and they are going to shed up the film with the losses. The film is very nearer to gain the credit of top 10 films in terms of collections. So lets hope that the movie at least gains that credit and make mega fans have a satisfaction. By Phani

Pochampally - Place of Bhoodhan movement and Handlooms April 24, 2015 16:43

Pochampally is a small village situated in the district of Nalgonda in the state of Telengana, India. The village is around 45 KM from Hyderabad, capital city of Telengana. It is near to the famous Ramoji Film city. Pochampally is surrounded by hills and lush green fields. Pochampally is the place where threads and colours find their way into the hands of skillful weavers and meander into the market as beautiful sarees and dress materials. Pochampally is a typical weaving village.History 18th April 1951 was an historic day of the very genesis of the Bhoodan movement. Vinoba Bhave visited Pochampally mandal in Nalgonda district. Vinayak Narahari Bhave was known as Vinoba Bhave who was an advocate for nonviolence and human rights and is well known for his Bhoodan Movement to help the landless farmers. The organizers had arranged Vinoba's stay at Pochampally, a small village with about 700 families, in which two-third were landless. Pochampally villagers gave Vinoba a warm welcome. Seeing the plight of landless villagers, Vinoba inquired whether anything is possible to do, if it is not possible to get land from the government. Vedre Ramchandra Reddy, the local landlord got up and said that he is ready to donate 250 acres. This incident neither planned nor imagined was the very genesis of the Bhoodan movement and it made Vinoba realize that there is some potentiality in solving the land problem of India. This movement later on developed into a village gift or Gramdan movement. As such the huge, massive and magnificent movement called Bhoodan Movement was born at this village Pochampally, the village was renamed to Bhoodan Pochampally.Temple Markandeswar temple: In Pochampally there is a famous temple named Markandeswar Temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva in the form in which Lord Shiva has blessed Markandeya and saved him from Yama the Lord of Death. The temple is situated near the market.Handlooms (Handloom Industry in Pochampally)Pochampally has traditional looms, whose design is more than a century-old. Basking under the glory on par with the weavers of other places, Pochampally weave is popularly known as tie and dye weave. The uniqueness lies in the transfer of design and colouring onto warp and weft threads first and then weaves them together. The fabric is usually cotton, silk and sico - a mix of silk and cotton. Increasingly, the colours themselves are from natural sources and their blends. The consumer-weaver interactions provide inputs for new designs. The weavers from the older and new generation have shown resilience and adapted themselves to the changing tastes of the consumers.Training in Handloom weavingChenetha Gurukulam (School for training in handloom weaving) has been started with the spirit of introducing & handing over the ancient art to the world. With experienced Gurus here popularly known as Master Weavers, the Gurukulam teaches the entire process of Weaving since from its inception to Ready to wear condition. The Gurukulam comprises different programs with multiple course durations.Dyeing (Process of yarn dyeing in Bhoodan Pochampally)In Pochampally dyeing is done with tie and dies technique, in which the warp, weft or both are tie-dyed before weaving to create designs on the finished fabric. Great care must be taken in tying resist areas with water repellent material such as bicycle inner tubes cut into strips. The precision of the wrapping determines the clarity of the design. After wrapping, the warp threads are dyed. When finished and unwrapped, the areas under the ties have stayed the original colour. Numerous colours can be added after additional wrappings. Designs generally are worked out on graph paper. Since designs are already incorporated in the threads, great care is to be taken while putting the warp on the loom. Keeping all the threads in position is necessary for the design to work. The natural movement during weaving gives designs a feathered edge which characterizes this technique.Weaving Pochampally handlooms are well known for the durability of the colours used in the yarn. The mixture of colour gives the durability. The count used in weaving gives the softness and hardness of the fabric.  Count means the number of threads used in the length and breadth for weaving known as warp and weft respectively. Each and every thread of the Pochampally saree is hand woven. In Pochampally frame looms are used for weaving. Here each weaver works from home with all the family members helping in different processes. May be, the grandmother will be winding bobbins, while the wife is marking out the design on warp threads and the husband is weaving on a loom in the main living area. Their life revolves around weaving. Decline of Handloom IndustryOnce famous Pochampally Handloom products are now becoming extinct due to the low wages prevailing in the industry. Previously Pochampally was full of talented weavers who used to do magic in the looms to produce the best handloom products. Now you can see very small number of weavers is actually in the profession. It is very much required to preserve and support handloom industry. The new generation has to be initiated into this industry, for which the working environment and the returns are to be improved. There must be a targeted campaign in the internet to make the world know the specialty of the Pochampally handlooms. The artisan’s creativity has to be exhibited to the world and thus Pochampally handloom brand can survive. The beauty and comfort of the handloom textiles are to be experienced. The unique designs and the art of weaving make Pochampally handlooms to stand out in the textile market. People who love handlooms can visit the village of Pochampally and experience the making of the fabric and then purchase their favourite designed textiles directly from the weavers.By Premji

Rahul Gandhi trekked to Sanctum Sanctorum Kedarnath April 24, 2015 16:03

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday trekked to the sacred Kedarnath shrine and said he trekked to pay the tributes to the fatalities of the 2013 floods in the region and did not ask for anything.Trekking a distance of 16km to reach the shrine, Gandhi said that though he did not ask for anything at the shrine, he felt a "fire-like" energy after entering the holy portals.The Congress vice-president said he had two motives to visit the shrine on foot."First was to respect the people who lost their lives here. In 2013 I came here and saw myself what happened here.So I thought if I go Kedarnath in a helicopter it will be disrespectful to them. I though the way those pilgrims came here, I should come here the same way."Second motive is that a lot of people work here. Porters are here, they have carried your cameras here. They carry things and people. They are facing a lot of difficulties and are in fear. They are in fear because a tragedy had occurred here and also the tourists who come here are facing a lot of discomfort and fear."So I thought if I walk, then our brothers, who are here here, it will be advantageous for them. People will come and their fears will be reduced a bit," he said.Asked what wish he had asked in the temple, Gandhi said he did not ask for anything."Usually when I go to a temple, I don't wish for anything. That is my habit. I went to the temple and did not ask anything. But when I went inside, I experienced some fire-like energy," he said. - Manohar
