Frugal Vs Brutal methods against Chinese Virus – India Vs USA

USA wants to tackle any problem head on, while India always takes the frugal and effective measures, using minimal possible expense and damage.

When USA try to land a spacecraft on moon, USA adopted direct approach, using brutal force against moon gravity. Main reason is, USA has bigger money pocket. When India sent the spacecraft to the moon, it adopted the frugal method. It sent the spacecraft to the orbit of earth, then it jumped to the orbit of moon, then circulated moon for many times, then landed the spacecraft. This is because, a. Indian space scientists are brilliant in using the available limited resources to their maximum potential. b. They have to operate in a limited budget.

Even in the current Chinese Virus situation, we can see similar differences in approaches.
President Trump said that business should go back to normalcy, by Easter, which is just two weeks away.
So, they are clearly not thinking about lock down approach.
They rely heavily on
a. development of vaccines,
b. development of new medicines to curb the chinese virus
c. using current medicine combinations against the virus.

This is brute force approach. USA cannot afford to lock down because, it will crumble their economy, which is her backbone.

But India on the other hand, has taken the frugal, lock down approach. While Indian scientists are also busy finding remedies to Chinese virus, India cannot afford to let the virus spread quickly. Hence, it has to lock down, because, once the virus bombards the rural people, there is no way to contain it.

Hence, only way India can fight this virus is by preventing its spread. Also, India can afford to take this approach as we Indians know how to live with limited resources. We have innate capabilities to live under tough conditions.

You trusted me when I had doubt myself.
You cared me when I did not regard myself.
You hugged me when I raised my open hands to you.

You filled me with love when I was in fear.
You reminded me who I am when I was in search of identity.
You gave me a purpose to live when I was pushing myself in life journey.

I am Calm Today

By Dr Renita D’Souza

I am calm. Yes, I am… because I limited my living
just for the living day..i.e today.
I’ll live every moment as if there is no
tomorrow to think.
I’ll stop worrying about tomorrow because tomorrow… has its own to worry about.

I’ll stay calm every moment for there is no tomorrow… to think about.
I’ll not worry, I’ll not fear, I am not afraid because I don’t know if I am living tomorrow to be the best.

I’ll live today the way I am born to be the best or worst.
It’s my day, I live at least one single day cool in every moment…be it best or worst.

I know I’ll die one day but don’t know when I’ll die, so I’ll live every moment now onwards…  stress free.
I didn’t know before birth when I would be born and now after birth I don’t know when I’ll die, so dear fear, I am not with you because I don’t know you and I don’t relate to you.

I have no reason to fear because everything is planned the way before it exists and exit.

I am on my way to leverage calmness.
I am on my way to take things as they come.
I am on my way to living in present and living happily.

Sultanate of mountains And World’s only Hindu Sheikh

Usha Shinde
Mountains ….. Mysterious, multicoloured and multi mineral mountains! That is Oman. My first glimpse to Oman was when I visited a border city called Al-Ain in U.A.E. in 2002. I could see the rocky land ahead at Al-Buraimi . The land was full of various shapes of mountains. It was a contrast to the sandy land of U.A.E. That time I never knew that next eight years I will be visiting Oman many a times.  Continue reading “Sultanate of mountains And World’s only Hindu Sheikh”

Rishi Dhaumya and Pandavas

By Ms. Usha Shinde
When did Rishi Dhaumya come into contact with Pandavas?
King Drupad had announced the wedding (Swayamvar)of his beautiful and brave daughter called Draupadi. Hearing about her, Arjuna decided to participate in the swayamvar and win her heart by showing his skill in archery. That time elders told that while going for such a endeavour, one should have a family priest with them. On the way they met Dhaumya Rishi and requested him to be their family priest and go along with them. Dhaumya agreed and the association started which lasted throughout the life of Pandavas.   Continue reading “Rishi Dhaumya and Pandavas”
