What Connects #SwamiVivekananda and #JRDTata?

A Sea Voyage That Changed India!

While the two had met earlier, Jamsteji and Vivekananda had not had the time to engage in lengthy conversations. They did now and when they met again on the promenade of the ship, they got talking🧵
He narrated to JRD the experiences he had gained during his travels throughout the length & breadth of India as a wandering monk in the quest of truth.

He talked about the relentless oppression and repression of his fellow Indians he had seen at the hands of colonials.
Furthermore, he spoke about how, during his visit to in Canton (Guangzhou) in China, he had come across many Sanskrit and Bengali manuscripts in Buddhist monasteries.

They also discussed Japan’s phenomenal progress in technology and Jamsetji’s plan of laying the foundations of the steel industry to India.

He also explained that he was in search of equipment and technology that would help make India a strong industrial nation.

Impressed by Vivekananda’s views on science and deep-rooted patriotism, Jamsetji requested his guidance in his campaign in establishing a research Institute in India. The visionary monk smiled, gave his blessings and remarked,

This IISC Bangalore was founded.
Jamsetji and Vivekananda never met after that journey. But these words struck a chord in the industrialist’s heart and five years later, he wrote a letter to Vivekananda. Here is what it said:
Busy setting up the Ramakrishna Mission, Vivekananda was unable accept the offer but he promptly sent his disciple, Sister Nivedita to meet met Jamsetji. Working together, they formulated a detailed plan for the research institute.
Swami Vivekananda died in July 1902 and Jamsetji died two years later, unaware that their shared vision would be realised five years later. The Tata Institute of Science was born in 1909 and renamed the Indian Institute of Science (IISC) in 1911.

So we have many descriptions regarding this in various puranas and scriptures. The exact description and explanation of different cases would be very very long.

But Here is rough algorithm, read on...
As per Agni Puran chapter 203

When the body dies,the jivatma is carried away to the abode of Yama for judgement of his actions. Sinful jivas are taken through a door and path that is painful and pious souls are taken through another path that is not painful.
Then after finishing his term there he will again have to comeback to this material plane of existence taking birth in any kind of material body as per his actions.

This is the normal course of a jiva's life in samsara.

A thread on Vintage Gujrati Print Media Ads in #Diwali Issues of various magazines on occasion of #GujaratiNewYear .

its very interesting to look at the selection of words, presentation style, clarity and vibes of honesty.

Let's start from 1958 and go back more in past!
Here are ads of Tata Oil Mils based in Ahmedabad and a company dealing with general insurance in Kampala of east Africa !

East Africa has a very large population of Gujarati since centuries.
Here you can see ads of Kampala and Nairobi too.
This ads are taken from a magazine named "Urmi"

There is nothing much to search for in this world, everything is inside.

We actually don't have anything missing in relationship, career, goals, way of spending money etc but objectivity.
Emotional reaction to anything is most harmful to your inner peace.

One of the biggest problems in modern day society is Instant Gratification in Relationships.

As humans, we want things to work out for us as quickly as possible.

The result?

We rarely ever get what we want. 1/n
This mentality of instant gratification causes frustration, and you never get what you desire.

It's really a sign of a lack of wisdom when you're desperate. And these days, it's very rare to find a wise individual.
This is really what instant gratification is -- it's desperation. At least, that's how it looks from the eyes of others.

When it comes to relationships, you should know by now that desperation is a form of neediness which is the biggest turn off of them all.

IMO The problem is 7 fold,

First issue is strong need of Population Control bill, the issues seems small at this time but its want exponential increment or decrement in the respective group.

Second is Anti Conversion Bill, When a person convert, its whole family convert ! 1/7
Third issue : The traitor within who keep defaming Hinduism for various reasons

Just look at this Hindu-phobic article of the printF, No doubt they will do RR about Indian family system using the word sravan, but will celebrate such moments 👇

Fourth issue: With active religious interest A group wont feel proud of their religious identity and same goes to offspring, that is again exponential factor!

If they are not proud and aware about the Religious identity why will they be motivated enough to preserve it.
