Importance of History & Historical Leadres on our Life.

We must move future onwards in present by learning from past.

Those, who wouldn't like to learn from history, are destined to repeat that blunder.... Imagine if we did not learn from our and others mistakes and repeated the communal war again and lose thousands of lives because we did not pay attention to our history.

Thus history plays an important role in our life. As it is well known sentence that each and every body has two aspects positive and negative. This concept applies on the both our historical leaders as well as us. Just think when we go to dig the gold we do not looking for the dirt, we go looking for the the gold.
 Here I made a background against those, who try to criticize that this leader is good and that leader was not so good. According to Indian constitution Article 19.a you have to express your views but remember that criticize shows your negative attitudes, and also I would like to keep in your mind according our constitution Article 19.2 you are restricted to express your views which are etiquettes.
Let me talk about the importance of historical leaders in our life.
Those great personalities made us in such a condition that we can say that we are citizen of a successful republic country. And we are well known in which way sovergnity help us in day to day life as well as upliftment of our nation.

Here I we may think about world wide historical leaders as
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar ... - by Ms Mahalakshmi G.S.
Washington, George
1st President of the United States (1789-97), commander in chief of the Continental army in the American Revolution.....

Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13 (April 2, old style), 1743, at Shadwell in Goochland........  drafted the Declaration of Independence ...

Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was born in Hardin.... he worked in a store, managed a mill, surveyed, and split rails......

But I would like to mention M.K.Gandhi

Why I have selected his name is not a mystery. He was not only a leader but philosopher. Above all he was a good human being.

His views and works play more efficiency way rather than others.

As a freedom fighter.

As the base of Indian constitution article 40, 43, 46, 47, 48

as a philosopher (Do not think that philosopher are related with transcendental things)

Love, Is it a relation based on expectation and compromise OR friendship and happiness?


 प्रेमदिवस एकदा मन्यते येन रक्तपातोऽल्पि कारयति।
वर्षस्य प्रतिदिवस घ्रिणादिवससम कुर्वन्न शर्म लभते।
न कोऽपि कथयति तं किमपि यः वितरति विषयुक्ता हाला
किन्तु सर्वे निन्दन्ति यदि मधु वितरति मधुशाला॥
(मेरी संस्कृत कविता ’मधुशालैकादशी’ से)

Love, this word is used in several meanings. This is the cause we cant define this word. If  I make a general statement than we can say every body has own definition, never the less we may consent this definition that Love is the power of life.

If I consider above mentioned topic (because this topic is kept on VD not to MD etc.) then I can say it is talking about something about friendship or related life partner not to others.
In this world there are two kinds of  lovers first of them who follow 'Bhakti maarga of love' and rest one follow 'Karma maarga of love'. These (Bhakti and Karm like words) are not  codyfied wqords. Iused these to explain my view regarding above mentioned question. In Bhakti, we   dedicate ourself to other one and act as a slave but in Karma marg we act as master. The half part of above mentioned question reflects the qualities of Bhakti Maargi and the rest patrs expresses the qualities of Karma Maargi.
As I think We cant approve  any of them. Because sometime we have to act as slave* but sometimes we have to act as a master*. Hance, I suggest we should think about situation and act according that because we cant ignore that expectation  and to compromise give us pain but we cant ignore them to do so and other hand besides this we need friendly behavior as well as happiness*.

*Do not take it as its narrow meaning.

Do we actually need a day to express our love? Why only 14th Feb ??

Emotion is the essential part of human life. If we forget it that, we can't find human being well off. Hence I have no hesitation to acknowledge that, it is  necessary to have a day to express our feelings. In this way  there a natural question that is our emotion or feeling is expressible only the day of VD or  feeling expression is continuous process? Of course it can't be expressed on a fixed day but It should be a special day when we may celebrate it as the whole year. We have so many examples- Dashahara, Dipavalee etc. We do the worthy works in the whole the year but celebrate on the day of a historical day which is concerned that one.

Every year in the Feb, almost across the country, flowers and other gifts are exchanged among loved ones, these are all in the name of great  St. Valentine. Never the less who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this day is questionable. The history of  VD(?) and its proprietor saint (?) is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.Indeed in Indian tradition  it has also taken place. We use to celebrate 'Vasant parv'  which is also  related with Romance. It also comes almost in the  period.

We respect him not only for his contribution regarding  freedom struggle of India but We respect for his thought which gives a right direction to us. It teaches us that how should I leave.

Just note it...

Do not think of knocking out another person's brains because he differs in opinion from you. It would be as rational to knock yourself on the head because you differ from yourself ten years ago.
