Swami Vivekananda Wordhazard

Swami Vivekananda is one of the most known and revered spiritual leaders. Today we pay homage to the one who’s an embodiment of youth, on his 116th death anniversary . He had an extremely dynamic personality and conquered the entire world through his ideals and beliefs. Books containing his teachings preach the humans worldwide and are quite popular among youth.
Depression , anger, self-doubt, lethargy are some main issues faced by the modern Indian youth. And you must amaze yourself by knowing that his teachings have already hinted the solutions for the above problems about an 100 years ago.

Lets go through some points:

Real birth!

Vivekanand Quotes

 

According to Swami ji , the real birth of an individual takes place only when he/she realizes the purpose of life. He categorized motiveless people as “walking-talking corpse”.
He always said, think of DOING something and not BECOMING something. In the process of doing something, you will definitely learn a lot.

Self confidence:

Vivekanand Quotes

He said “a person is an atheist who doesn’t believe in himself “.
He kept reminding people that nothing is impossible. The real problem is that we limit to know our capabilities.
Swami ji always believed that everything that is happening around us, be it positive or negative, gives us the opportunity to manifest the potential within.

Dedication:

Vivekanand Quotes

“To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. ‘I will drink the ocean’, says the persevering soul; ‘at my will mountains will crumble up’. Have that energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.”
Dedication with discipline is the key to success. Follow and you will see it for yourself. Pursuing a challenge with utmost dedication is, indeed, a road to success for our youth.

Team work:

Vivekanand Quotes

For any organization to work effectively, efficient team work is necessary. While his visit to USA , he was greatly influenced by the way teams at different sectors worked there. He wanted that Indians must understand and carry this out in their lives.

Power is with us:

Vivekanand Quotes

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”
We often blame our failures on other factors because they are not in our control but fail to look our own shortcomings. Time and again, people from around the world remind us that nothing can stop you from realizing your dream if you truly work hard for it. This is another self realization lesson which he often told to the youth.

“Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.”

Yet another emphasis which he lay was over the fact of realizing our true potential.

Your thoughts make you. Beware. Think good. Be good.

In this rat race of making money and fame of the so-called “humans” or the only walking and talking corpse”, we must distinguish ourselves and get reassured of our real motto of living in this life. Take these points into your mind and try to lead a comparatively happier, successful, peaceful life.

Sometimes a moody writer, sometimes it's all about being invariable. A vicar of my own thoughts, I try to weave memories into strings and gather a garland of words. Writing on social issues is my personal favorite but I also imbibe in the art of poetry. Doodling my way from soil to stars, I sketch sarcasm in the sarcastically possible way! All these amalgamated with my sense of writing provide a fine finish to my artistic skills.

Dogs are the best friends a human can ever cherish. The friendship and loyalty of a dog is incomparable to any other living being on this planet. People might end up judging you but your dog will just shower love and care on you. The world can turn upside down but a dog will remain with you as your best friend.

This is the best things about dogs : they will sense your happiness and sadness with your mere presence. While everyone nowadays wishes to pet a Labrador, German Shepherd or Chinese Pug, Indian breed dogs have lost their identity. People tend to pet more beautiful dogs and forget that Indian breed dogs are equally adorable. This has become the sole reason why people don’t even know about the Indian breed dogs.

While we talk about dogs, let’s take you down the pages of history and show the most charming Indian breed dogs :

Chippiparai :

Chippiparai-indian-dog-breeds

This dog is bred by the royal families of Chippiparainear Madurai district in Tamil Nadu. It is a tremendous pet for hunting deer, hare and bore. Later, it began to be looked up as the symbol of royalty, dignity and luxury. Isn’t that so regal and full of pride ?

Rampur Hound :

This dog is primarily found in the Rampur region between Delhi and Bareily. This breed of dog was a choice of the Maharajas that accompanied them in hunting. Also, they protected the kings from leopards, lions, jackals etc. Indeed, this breed of dog was known for its exemplary speed with which they covered long distances easily.

Rajapalayam :

Rajapalayam-indian-dog-breed

This is basically an Indian guard dog found in the Rajapalayam region of Tamil Nadu. Their pride lies in the pure white look with a pink nose, adding to their regal personality.

It is believed that these dogs were used to fight against the British in many major wars. Primarily, these dogs have been bred by Indian Army to guard at the Kashmiri Border. Yes, they hold the pride of being a part of the Indian Army.

Himalayan sheep dog :

This is the absolute portrayal of intelligence, smartness and charm. Found in the North India and Nepal region, they are actively used for herding.They are not just adorable but are great runners and perfect in protecting you against all dangers. Just imagine your life without such dogs ?

Indian Pariah Dog :

Social, active and lovable, this breed makes a great guard dog. They are found to be very emotional and caring towards children. Also, they are deeply particular and involved with their family. A very socializing breed, they can be great friends to stand by you.

 

Everybody has forgotten these royal, adorable, social and active Indian breed dogs. Dogs that don’t expect anything in return but just love certainly don’t like to be forgotten. Especially these Indian breed dogs that have been involved in wars and army, having them as a pet should be an honor. Leaving them aside just because they don’t resemble a German Shepherd is something deeply saddening.

For years now, we have differentiated among humans. It would be derogatory as a human to begin discrimination among dogs. Dogs see nothing but just love and concern. No matter you don’t serve them lavishly, they will love you for the concern you owe towards them. A connection that can never be expressed in words, it should not be judged on their origin.

Love them, for they only seek love and nothing else.
