My Daily Activity Report Card

Last year I wrote an article describing my year-round activities. It covered gross points of major activities and events in the year 2018. Then I thought why not write something about my day-to-day activities once in a while and the result is this article!

I am a practising ophthalmologist for 40+ years. Activities other than eye disease treatment is at the cost of professional practice. But I do not mind losing practice nowadays because that is my concept of stepwise, gradual retirement.



Let me start.
  • On Saturday, 28-Sep-2019 4:00 PM onwards, I attended a lecture from Shreya Kataria1 (my favourite young author) on a book review at the Senior Citizens Club, Gandevi. After this, there was a Lions Club meeting at 7:00 PM.
  • On 04-Oct-2019, I travelled 184 km to Nizar for my lecture on Personality Development2 to 250 colleges students of this relatively backward area. To my surprise, they heard me sincerely and repeated the gross points of my lecture when asked. Same day evening, there was a Garba3 programme with inmates of an old-age home in Gandevi, following dinner.
  • Last week, our Lions Club of Bilimora Yugma celebrated the Service Week. on 30-Sep-2019, there was a rally for Traffic Awareness4 on Road Safety at 10:30 AM with Bilimora Municipality, Police Department. and Rehbar Auto Dealer. 400+ motor-cyclists participated.
  • The second rally was on 02-Oct-2019, 7.30 AM we celebrated 150th Gandhi Jayanti5. We gathered at Bili Harijanvas for flag hoisting and had a rally with 1,100 people including high-school students.
  • On 03-Oct-2019, 9.30 AM we visited Nandini Gaushala, Bhaiya Tekri, Gandevi to feed cows there and do Animal Service6.
  • On 05-Oct-2019, 9.00 AM I joined Eye Check-up Camp7 at Somnath Primary School, Bilimora with Dr Darshana Naik. More than 120 students were attended to.
  • On 06-Oct-2019, Sunday, after attending Garba with Senior Citizens8 of Bilimora, we went to Dandak Van9, Vansada for a night stay with my wife Dr Bhavana and daughter Vaishali. I learnt Vihangam Yoga10 between 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The stay in the forest surrounded by hills and the temple is an experiment worth enjoying.
Ten different activities in ten days! No time for complaining or depression, only enjoying all the time being busy with people around.

  1. All fruitful activities! Congratulations Bharat bhai.

Anavils - An Endangered Community

After Parsis, Anavils (Anavil Brahmins, અનાવિલ બ્રાહ્મણ ) are the fastest decreasing community. The total population of Anavils around the world does not exceed two lakhs figure and that is also fast reducing day by day. Days are not far, beyond a century or so, when they will have to be seen/found in records, photos and videos. Why?

Because,
   - they get married too late,    - many are dying unmarried,    - they wait for the career to be settled before the first (and maybe the only) childbirth.

Karmic Theory (Law Of Karma)

“Facing Challenges and Creating Destiny” by BK Shivani, Gurgaon
National Conference on Mind-Body-Medicine, Mount Abu.
August 6-10, 2010
What is Karma?

Karma is work or energy going out in the form of 1. Thought, 2. Word and/or 3. Action. Resultant return of energy is in the same amount known as Bhagya (Destiny). The role of God is to ask you to do Karma and to help you to do RIGHT karma. Then whatever good/bad karma you do, the result is accordingly and entirely your responsibility. Because the result is Destiny (Bhagya). So don’t blame anyone else or God for anything bad. Do not try to blame someone responsible for your own deed and its result.

Jainism: Simplified

I am introducing here world spread religion having 5.5 million followers, mainly in India and abroad like USA, UK, Canada, East Africa and many other countries in one of the six greatest religions. Word "Jain" is derived from "Jina" meaning conqueror. "Arihant" is one who has destroyed his inner enemies like anger, greed, passion and ego.

Bhagavad Gita - Short And Straight

BHAGAVAD GITA

Here, Bhagavad means GOD. Gita means singing poetry.

The context of the story is a dialogue - conversation, taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra war between Lord Krishna (kṛṣṇa) and Pandava prince Arjuna.

કાર્તિકેય

કાર્તિકેયના જન્મની વાત

તારક નામ ના અસૂરે દાનવે દેવોને હરાવ્યા હતા. તેને મારવા માટે દેવોએ શું-કરવું તે વિચાર્યું તેને તારક ને મળેલા વરદાન મુજબ તેને ફક્ત નાનું બાળક દ્વારા બનેલું અને માર્ગદર્શિત લશ્કર જ મારી શકે એમ હોવાથી તેઓએ બ્રમ્હાનો સંપર્ક કર્યો. બ્રમ્હાના કહેવા મુજબ ફક્ત શિવ-પુરુષ દ્વારા ફક્ત એકલાથી પેદા થયેલ બાળક – ફક્ત ભગવાન શંકર જ આપી શકે ભગવાન શંકર ને મોહિત કરવા “કામ” ને મોકલ્યો પરંતુ શિવ તેને “ત્રીજી આંખ” ખોલી ને ભશ્મ બનાવી દીધો. ત્યારે તેમણે શક્તિ પાર્વતિ ને આજીજી કરી. પરંતુ આ ભગવાન શિવને પાર્વતિ મનાવી શક્તિ નથી. પરંતુ પછીથી દેવો અને પાર્વતિ ની વિનંતી ગ્રાહ્ય રાખી શિવ છ ચમકારા જેવા અગ્નિ રૂપે બીજ એટલે કે વીર્ય આપે છે તેથી કાર્તિકેય ને સ્કંધ (વીર્ય દ્વારા જીવીત) પણ કહે છે.

આવા શક્તિશાળી અને ઉષ્ણ બીજને અગ્નિને દેવો આપે છે. અગ્નિ બીજને ગરમ હોવાથી સાચવી શક્તિ નથી, ત્યારે પવનને આપે છે. જે વાયુ- પવન ગંગામાં પધરાવે છે ત્યાં પાણી ઉકાળવા માંડે છે અને બારું ના જંગલમાં આ વીર્યમાથી આગ લગતાં,બચેલા અંગારામાથી છ બાળકો ઉદભવે છે. માં માટે રડતાં તડપતા છ બાળકો માંથી છ માથાવાળું એક બા…

On Father’s Day

Parents are important. Because we take birth because of them. They get married (usually)and decide to become parents. They stop anti-pregnancy drugs-contraceptives, they start loving(!) each other and have a physical relationship or sometimes even tolerate the torture of IVF and end result is the birth of a child - YOU! So, in a time of very late marriages, delayed parenthood and zero-to-one child, to take birth is no accident. Point being, the parents are important and the children should be grateful to them.

History Of India - For "No Time" Tagged Readers

Let’s first understand the word “history”.

History is a social science with storytelling.History is discovery, collection and presentation of information about past events with its cause and effect.History is a record of past.Greek word ‘Historia’ means inquiry, judging and knowledge acquired by investigation.For learning history, it is compulsory to understand/know geography, economics and anthropology simultaneously.
Now coming to India, ‘pre-independence’ Indian history had:
1.            Stone age: 30,000 BC to 3300 BC 2.            Bronze age: 3300 BC to 1500 BC 3.            Iron age: 1500 BC onwards.
So here’s the History of India post-1500 BC, within my knowledge and research. The following sections are quite detailed and may appeal more to readers with academic interests. If you belong to the other side, I’d suggest you jump straight to Summary section.
