The Essence of Literature

With the increased pressure in our lives, hope we are not forgetting the importance of literature. In fact, this is the right time to acknowledge the literary value and divulge in that. What is literature? It is the expression of the truth and beauty of this world which we remain unnoticed by us. 

How do we judge a literary work? In other words, we can call this the qualities of literature. The very first quality of literature is its artistic beauty, the beauty which takes us to a different imaginative world away from the worldly worries and gives a peaceful and serene environment. The second is the suggestiveness or the long trail of thoughts expressed through a single sentence. 

How can we forget the famous line of the Greek tragedy which reveals the entire tragedy hidden in the ecstatic beauty in a single sentence ‘Was this the face that launched a thousand ships?’ The third quality of literature is its permanence. It is not limited to any nation or even a continent but it crosses all the boundaries and includes the entire human race, in the same way it is not limited to any age but lives across all the ages and enlightens everyone.

The time is to remind these qualities of literature and produce the literature of the true sense. If literature is the presentation of our lives, then let’s focus a little more on the quality of literature. Writing for the sake of writing cannot even touch the essence of literature, for that, we need to dive deep in to the world and come out with the golden shining words which can enlighten everyone.

Do You Love Yourself?

Many a times, we are bothered by such petty things in our lives which become a matter of laughter for others. But, still the questions keep on revolving in our minds with out the rarest possibility of being answered. Even though we know the common answers, then also we keep on waiting for some answers which may not be able to convince us but at least satisfy the hunger of our hearts.

Beauty is called the gift of god, then should ugliness be assumed as the curse of god? What is beauty? A great man said that it lied in the eyes of the beholder. True. Yes, absolutely true. A person can be considered beautiful by millions except one soul that is his own self. Is there any way to come out of this situation?

This is a kind of disease which has started overpowering the youngsters of the modern world cutting them off from their own potentials and lowering it to just the thought of ugliness. Consciousness of one’s own body grows to such an extent that a person starts forgetting his/her real identity. He/ she may be ten times better than the other at the intellectual, spiritual and the understanding level but the counting of shortcomings at the physical level by his/her own self kills all the other potentials refraining him from even trying his hands in the field he is capable to be at the top.

Many research works have shown that beauty boosts the confidence and it’s made more popular by the people discouraging their skills for the lack of beauty and others encouraging their worth by the lack of consciousness.

The solution lies in considering oneself the best and coming out of the restraints of the physical level which sometimes becomes really difficult. This is not easy as the whole problem starts from here and ends at the same point. But, let’s start to understand this and try and experiment with the actual facts rather than feeling frustrated with the sympathy of others which discourages us even more. We very well understand how it feels when we innocently ask a person, “how do I look?” and the reply comes with a true and a pinching fact, “God made everyone so, everyone is beautiful.” We acknowledge the fact and also understand the difference in the same answer if it had been asked by a really beautiful person. Here, a really beautiful person is measured on the scale of the physical level.

So, why to discourage and demean ourselves with such silly questions? Let’s rise ourselves at other levels which beauty can’t even touch and people can’t dare to ignore. Our identity lies in our skills and can be polished by our efforts. Let’s create a situation when people become forced to say,” Beauty in vain, skills make a man or a woman.” Time is to encourage our souls and force the beauties to learn from our beautiful souls.

Life is very short, so run fast to keep a pace with your thoughts, set an ambition and achieve the peak and get convinced that you are among the best. Why to die unconvinced and unsatisfied with our own lives? God did injustice, so do justice to you. Don’t leave any stone unturned to establish your own identity. Everyone dies physically with which beauty also vanishes, so achieve the beauty which can’t even be snatched by death and gets appreciated till the world lives.

Stay Young, Fit and Happy Spiritually and Scientifically

It discusses the positive results of keeping fasts proved by scientists in a recent study.

In many religions, people keep fast on eve of various festivals or in order to give respect to their deities. This word has always been related to religious sentiments. In simple terms, it can be seen as a day on which a person refrains from taking anything made from food grains. If you believe in it, call it a fast and if you don’t then call it a spiritual trend which has already been proved very useful according to the recent study of the scientists.

It has been found as a tool to keep oneself fit and healthy and also enabling one’s capacity to live longer with great ability to fight against diseases. Not only this, it also reduces the wrinkles on the skin making the person live a long young life. This also helps a lot in reducing the accumulation of fat which leads to various diseases as we grow old.
And this is very logical as well. What do we do to give rest to our body? Yes, and if we don’t do that then our health faces the consequences. In the similar way, the system of our body also needs some rest from the daily process.
And, let me be very specific. In order to achieve all the positive results of fast which people usually say doesn’t tell us to be empty bellied through out the day. It requires us to take mostly liquid substances or fruits which provide a little rest to the grinding mechanism of the body. Apart from all this, the remembrance of our deities and the chanting of prayers give a special effect to our mind which increases the concentration and takes us far from the hustle bustle of the modern world into a much calmer world with a soothing effect. We can’t relate fasting to the common used dieting process which squeezes out the glow rather than enhancing the beauty.

So, instead of drying the system of our body in the name of dieting, it’s better to follow a one meal diet light diet without grains for one day of the week with some extra good work and a little time for the almighty which can bring a drastic change in our complete personality including our thought process.
