Navratri Begins

Navratri festival has began.On Monday I did the fasting for Navratri, as you have read in my previous posts, I do fasting on Mondays of Navratri. Though I thought of having fruits and water because it is quite hot here, but managed to do it Nirjara (without water and fruits). I had these on the next day. Due to this I decided to do the first half and then stayed in the college and waited for the commencement of the second half. It was a little different experience, as I have never stayed in college during Lunch. After doing the second half, I could feel the weakness and when I started walking from department towards my hostel, I could barely walk, with laptop and copies inside the bag. My family, mosi and mummy are always scared for me when I do such fasting. They take care of me fully when I am at home but when I do it in hostel, they always asks me to have water at least. But I am the one who loves worshiping God.

The previous day of my fasting, I was eating like anything and my roommate gave me lots of Gujiyas (Indian sweet) as I had to fast the next day. Mosi called me and asked me to eat something outside,  hence I went and had some good food and juices and also took a good amount of food in dinner. It was funny when I recollect Sunday, I was eating like anything 😀 . Nice I have done it without water 😀 .

Navratri is a beautiful festival and I loves listening to Durga Chalisa and Goddess Durga’s Bhajans during this time. I am finally packing bags to go home. I stayed here in Holi and missing my home very much. Catch ya in next post soon, Cheers 🙂

Jai Durga Maa 🙂


Ekla Cholo Re………

jadi tor daak shune keu naa aashe tabe ekla chalo re
tabe ekla chalo, ekla chalo, ekla chalo, ekala chalo re

jadi keu kathaa naa kaya, ore ore o abhaagaa,
jadi sabaai thaake mukha phiraaye sabaai kare bhaya
tabe paraana khule o tui mukha phute tora manera kathaa, ekalaa balo re

jadi sabaai phire jaaya, ore ore o abhaagaa,
jadi gahana pathe jaabaara kaale keu phire naa chaaya
tabe pathera kaantaa o tui raktamaakhaa charanatale ekalaa dalo re

jadi aalo naa dhare, ore ore o abhaagaa,
jadi jhara-baadale aandhaara raate duyaara deya ghare
tabe bajraanale aapana bukera paanjara jbaaliye niye ekalaa jbalo re

P.S: A famous poem by Rabindra Nath Tagore and sung by Amitabh Bachchan.

My family always gives the description and meaning of this song and motivates me. 🙂 In fact Mosi told me about this video when she saw it on Tv. She asked me to listen to it, as she often gives me the description and the real teaching behind this poem by Legend Rabindra Nath Tagore 🙂

One of Gandhiji’s favorites the song remains one of those great inspirational pieces which are timeless.In fact more than 100 years after the song was first written , the song is still as effective as it then…….

……..Don’t despair in all your worries , don’t lose hope if you find yourself alone because then you must walk alone and alone you must overcome all the hardships in the path to your goal……….. Jai Gurudeva 🙂
