Twinkle Twinkle ‘Pole Star’..( A Short Story)

Few days ago ,while sailing through the channel list of the television, I suddenly paused on one of the channels. On this channel, a series was dedicated to Mythology, and the episode showcased one of the touching stories of ‘Dhruv Taara( The Pole Star)’.

In the Hindu mythology , Lord Vishnu is said to have blessed a child whose name is Dhruv, who went on to become the ultimate ‘Pole Star’ as we know today.

The story goes somewhat like this.

Dhruv was the elder son of one of the kings, who also had a second wife and the younger of his kids was from the second wife.
The Maharaja(King) showed some more affection towards the younger son, while his second wife always wished that her son should become the successor of his father, instead of the elder son Dhruv.( In ancient days, the eldest of the sons used to inherit the kingdom from his father.)

Dhruv, pining for his father’s love, used to steal glimpses of his father, who was busy bestowing his love and playing with the younger son.The king used to make him sit on his lap, tell stories and fairy tales.

In a nutshell, Dhruv experienced the love of his father,being bestowed on his younger brother, from a distance, until, one rare night when the Maharaja was playing 
with both of his sons, his second wife interreupted. She  frowned and jolted back upon Dhruv to leave immediately. Elder, but still a kid, Dhruv went on to his Mother ,sobbing, with his eyes saturated with tears and posted his queries, ” Why I am not allowed to play with my father? Does he  love us any more? I want to play along with him, I want to enjoy the warmth of Father-Son relationship from which I have been deprived of ,for so long; I want to sit on my Father’ s lap and listen to the stories…..”.
His mother replied,  ” Love and hatred are two facets of the life.whenever you feel like, that someone else is occupying your position you’ve to toil hard and with your sincere efforts and hard work, you have to attain the higher position. You are the elder son, you will have to prove yourself and make everyone realise your worth.”

That day, Dhruv sat down in meditation,prayed and prayed and till his sincere efforts bore him the fruit. Lord Vishu was extremely fascinated and impresses by Dhruv’s dedication and spirits. He asked him to make a wish. Dhruv asked ” My mother said, we have to toil hard to achieve a higher position. Can you please grant me a higher position so that my father may show little affection towards us? “

Lord Vishnu came to know all about Dhruv.

He made Dhruv sit on his lap and carried him to the acme, the highest position, a permanent position where every one can see him, where everyone can respect and love him, and from where he could prove his worth!

He was also blessed that he would be the one to guide all the people towards the correct path of life over the years to come.

Even today , and many more years to come, The pole star will be the divine symbol of permanence, illuminating our paths towards success and achievements.

Science and mythology are in fact, two facets of the same coin.

In science you believe, what you see;
In mythology you see , what you believe.

If its night out there, then do make a note of the pole star, maybe you can find out some more secrets lying in the divine brightness.

Along the Holy Ganges..

​​Fog studded pathways, shimmering water of the Holy Ganges;

Floating clouds and Determined mountains,

Spirituality on the backdrop of self realisation, the cool quiet atmosphere,

Birds seemed to talk amongst themselves, discussing the pains, the struggles and the blissful moments,

The adjoining rocks creating awesome music in unison with the splashing and flowing water,

The Sun wakes up from the pillows of the snow covered mountains- Yawning and getting prepared to Illuminate the lives of Infinite souls,

The clouds seem to play hide and seek when the rays of the Sun tickle them to laughter,

The bliss is here, The Nature is here, The Mountains say so much, The waters whisper their fascinating tales,

The One up above in the Heavens, smiles and bestows His blessings…

The seductive winds..

And again the quilts are back,

The chilled seductive winds send shiver along the spine,

And you just feel to have snacks and a cup of tea, 

And sit and chit chat for hours around the fireplace,

Dim lights create the moments, cozy and warm,

Stories from unidentified genres engulf the room,

The talks are loud ,yet the silence provokes,

Clocks tick tick , and the pendulum ding dong,

Novels and the candle light seduce the moments,

Love brews and Emotions entangle,

And again the quilts are back…….Get Cozy and Imagine the rest!

Few moments for Mother Nature!

Over the past few decades, owing predominantly to human interference in the Natural processes, the Environment has been badly inflicted with the wounds of Increased GreenHouse Gas emissions, Oxides of Sulphur, Plastic waste and a huge amount of Toxic and Carcinogenic Bio Hazardous wastes.

Yes, this interference is not a new topic in the Global Debate arena; But the fact is that this is still a Breaking news! And everyday when thousands of individuals are getting affected by the same, we rarely care about it and just look at the Television sets or in the Streaming videos and give ‘Sorry’ glances!! Would that suffice the need of the hour?

Yes! I agree, there have been thousands of treaties, agreements, pacts and Summits; but it would be extensively ironic if I say that all of them where held in Air-Conditioned Auditoriums(That must have pumped in thousands of litres of Chlorofluorocarbons,thus contributing to Air Pollution) and must have generated huge amount of Plastic waste in form of Pet Bottles, Paper Napkins and many other such uncountable, yet visible items.

Travelling is one of most important ‘Life Goals’, these days. Most of them intended to click pictures of Beautiful Places and then destroying them and flushing garbage in all the serene and spectacular surroundings. Is that the way of living up your Life Goal?

Even a single plastic bottle thrown in such locations, takes thousands of Years to decompose into Non Hazardous Waste.

Google yields infinite info to curb pollution in your small ways, did  you ever care to read them and apply in your lives? If Not, do it today!

Don’t wait for others to make the change, Take a step ahead and lead the revolution! Once you lead, the remaining will automatically follow.☺👍

This time for Mother Nature!

 This time for Mother Earth!
