Meet Mr. Nick inspirational

We learnt this in school that “no one is perfect” but still we’re not satisfied with it. People bully people, they judge others by their physical looks, make fun of others on their looks, they often tag them with nick names such as Fat, skinny, black, white, long or short. They somehow forget to see their inner beauty, that makes other people depressed and loneliness.

    India’s First Female Barber

    ​Today woman are achieving new milestones, they are walking toe to toe with men. Internationally Women are creating their name and making their country proud. Metro cities in India also seen that revolution, this era is considered to be the era of women but when we talk about the rural India it is hard to imagine someone going and shattering traditional stereotypes in this male dominated society. 

    70 year old Shantabai from Hasusasgiri village in Lolhapur district of Maharastra is one of such example who chained herself out of traditional stereotypes and went on to become India’s first female barber. There is story behind it but what’s need to applauded here is her courage to choose and do male profession.

    Shantabai got marred when she was  only 12 years old. Her husband Shripati owned a land in the village and worked as a barber to earn some side income. But soon brothers had a fallout and Shripati left with an acre of land on which he could hardly farm. It was hard to survive in this situation in the village with not much income so He started moving to cities to expand his barber’s business but soon unexpectedly he died of an heart attack. Now the situation became bad to worst for his family.

    Later, The Government acquired her land for some plans and in return paid the family Rs. 15000 which they used to pay off the debts. But biggest problem was to feed her children. she also toiled in the farms sometimes she could get two time meals for the family and other time it was nothing at all. After all these tiring effort and no results she decided to commit suicide with her four daughters.

    Seeing this Haribhau kadukar came to her rescue and helped her to fight this situation and suggested her to take up her husband’s profession as there was no barber in the village after the death of her husband and she could earn like her husband.

    She was confused and didn’t no what to do

    “I had only two choices, either to kill my daughters and myself and give up life altogether or to hold the ustra that my husband left behind and struggle I decided to choose the later”

    said Shantabai.

    But this struggle was not that easy, it was huge mountain she had to climb, she was mocked and called out names in the village. But none of that affected her will power and determination. She never felt ashmed of her work. Every day she would leave her children to the neighbors and walk 4-5 kms to nearby villages in search for customer. She also shaves the cattle for some money.

    Soon her story got picked up by regional and local newspapers and she also received awards from various organizations like the Samaj Ratna Puraskar for being an inspiration to the society and bringing the change in barber community.

    Now she is 70 and its hard to walk like she used to but now customers come to her home to take her services. she says she will work till the day she die. she love this profession and set an example that women can do jobs that are traditionally called the Men’s Job. She raised all her daughters with the help of the money earn from this profession. 

    She’s a great human and inspiration to all rural women. Salute.

    Halen and Les Brown.

    ​Today we take you back to history and tell you about the California couple, Helen and Les Brown who born on the same day (New year’s eve in 1918) and celebrated 75 glorious years together and died one day apart: Helen passed away on July 16 and Les died the next day in the year 2013. They were 94.

    “It was real love wasn’t it?” their oldest son, Les Jr. said. “They were together every day for 75 years.”

    They have quite a love story, They met in high school and fell in love and then The Long Beach love birds eloped on September 19, 1937 and were married against their own parents’ wishes, acceding to their son. Helen was from working class family while Les was from a wealthier family. Both sides believed the love would never last, but Helen and Les embodied the meaning of their wedding vows “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”

    In later part of their life, they moved to Long Beach in 1963, where Les owned a photography studio, serving as photographer for the navy while his wife Helen was housewife into real estate business.

    Despite being born on the same day they have some differences, they were two different people, according to their sons, their Mom was strict while father was laid back. Like all couples their children said “they had issues to work through during their years together but Helen and Les constantly reaffirmed their love, a special bond that was always on display.” 
    Zack Henderson, owner of the grocery store neat their home used to se them daily.

    “About a year ago, Helen had her hand on his face and they were cheek to cheek,” Henderson told ABC news. “She said, ‘isn’t he the most handsome man you’ve even seen?’”

    At the time their deaths, Les was suffering from Parkinson’s and Helen had stomach cancer- Press-Telegram

    Daniel, The Brown’s youngest son, almost summed up his parents’ life and death he said

    “My mom often said she didn’t want to see my father die, and he didn’t want to live without her.”

    Helen and Les had motivated many people and they truly are the symbol of true unconditional love. God bless their Soul. 💜💜💜

    What is that? : Its My Hearbeats!

    It was sunday night, I left my home for the evening walk. I was happy and so proud that I am going to take part in 100 meter race at the World Championship in Rome. Only 90 days left for the event. I’m going to represent my country India. And whole evening  the only thing was on my mind was the preparation for the biggest race of my life, I was practising hard though. Thinking about the race which can shape my career. The race which can make every Countryman proud and I’m the one who is caring these all hope on my shoulder, I want to make my country, beloved family, friends and my lovely wife Ammie proud.

    On a personal note I (Methew) was also thinking how It feels like to be on the top of the podium with the Gold medal in the 100 Meter final at World Championship in Rome. I could become famous, earn quite a decent amount of money, a role model and most of them all I could turn my signature into autograph 😉

    Before I could celebrate my joy and happiness before even taking part and wining the race I saw white flood lights moving towards me, I had nowhere to go and it strucked me. It lifted me few feet from the ground, turned my body upside down and my body was lying on the footpath. I realized liquid flowing from my body, its my blood I was bleeding so badly. I was strucked by a car, I saw people rushing towards me and I could listen a sound very vividly. Its my Heartbeats, Lub dubs lub dubs sound of my heartbears were shouting so loudly. 

    They (people) rushed me to the nearest hospital. Doctors were shocked, they were not sure whether i will survive or not. I had to visit ICU And thankfully I survived somehow. I have broken my left leg . 

    The Dr. Said i can’t take part in the race for 4 months as i had injured left leg and abdominal mustles, I might be disastrous if I ever try to run in the resting period but the thoughts of becoming the best racer were killing me. I wanted to be the best, wanted to make my country proud.

    One week to the race day, my emotions and will lifted me and I have decided to take part in it, “I will take part in it, nothing can stop me now, I am going to climb any mountain for that medal, I’ll run for pride I can’t just sit at home and watch the game on T.V.” after lots of arguments with my family and Doctors I’m taking part in the race.

    Its race day Get Set Go!!

    When I heard “take your position” the only thing was on my mind the voice of my beloved wife who said “Just Run for your dreams, you may loose but never quite, get a medal for your country, love you champ” that had motivated me.

    3…2…1.. Go!!!

    All the athletes were running, on 50M mark I was in the last, i know i was fighting a losing battle, but the sound of my heartbeats were saying Go Go Go!! I closed my eyes and saw the glorious moments with my wife. She was always with me, she was my coach, my guide, my love And when I opened them I saw my name on the giant LED screen, I won the race …it was unimaginable and unforgettable.

    The Commentator asked me What’s that motivated you I said my heartbeats. And what’s that sound? Its my heartbeats was my reply. My wife is my heartbeats. She is always with me.

    For you there can be anything which motivates you just decide it. And RUN after your dreams.
    If you decided to achieve something no matter what happen nothing can stop you to achieve it. 

    “Pain is inevitable but giving up is option” Newer Give up on any situation. Just close your eyes and think who knows maybe you could win A Gold medal like me.

    Thank You.

    Kavi Vachan Sudha

    Kavi vachan Sudha was one of the famous Hindi monthly magazine in Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) after the magazine got fame it was converted into a weekly magazine. Bhartendu Harishchandra (9 September 1850 – 6 January 1885) is known as the father of modern Hindi literature as well as Hindi theatre He edited the magazine Kavi Vachan Sudha in 1868 into this magazine he requested Indian people first to use Indian made products or Swadeshi Apnao in March 1874 and later on some other newspaper.

    This magazine had given the new dimensions in the Hindi literature and journalism.
    Before the publication of “Kavi Vachan Sudha” not many people were interested in the Hindi magazine that’s why most of the magazine had to be closed down.

    daau. ramavilas sharma wrote – “kavi vachan sudha ka prakashan karake bharatendu ne ek ne yug ka sootrapat kiya.” ( “Bharatendu started a new era after starting publication of the Kavi Vachan Sudha”)

    Many magazines were published at that time period but not all got the same fame as Kavi Vachan Sudha did.

    Sarojani Naidu : The Nightingale Of India

    image

    India has seen many women which had achieved and did something great for the society Sarojani Naidu is one of them. She is also known as the Bhartiya Kokil ( the nightingale of India).
    She was a distinguish poet, renowned freedom fighter and a humble person.
    She was the first Indian woman to become the President of the Indian National Congress and the first woman to become the governor of a state in India.

    Sarojini Naidu was born on February 13, 1879. Her father Aghoranath Chattopadhyaya was a scientist and philosopher. He was the founder of the Nizam College, Hyderabad. Sarojini Naidu’s mother Barada Sundari Devi was a poetess and used to write poetry in Bengali. Sarojini Naidu was the eldest among the eight siblings.

    Sarojani Naidu was a brilliant student and was in love with the languages such as Urdu, English, Bangali, Telugu and Hindi. At the age of twelve she topped the matriculation examination at Madras University and got fame. Her father wanted her to become a mathematician or scientist but Sarojini Naidu was interested in poetry. She started writing poems in English. large number of people started liking her work and Impressed by her poetry, Nizam of Hyderabad, gave her scholarship to study abroad. At the age of 16, she traveled to England to study first at King’s College London and later at Girton College, Cambridge. There she met famous laureates of her time such as Arthur Simon and Edmond Gausse. It was Gausse who convinced Sarojini to stick to Indian themes-India’s great mountains, rivers, temples, social milieu, to express her poetry. She depicted contemporary Indian life and events. Her collections “The golden threshold (1905)”, “The bird of time (1912)”, and “The broken wing (1912)” attracted huge Indian and English readership.

    At the age of 15, she met Dr. Govindarajulu Naidu and fell in love with him. a non-brahmin, a doctor by profession. After finishing her studies at the age of 19, she married him during the time when inter-caste marriages were not allowed. It was a revolutionary step but Sarojini’s father fully supported her in her endeavour.  Sarojini Naidu had a happy married life and had four children: Jayasurya, Padmaj, Randheer, and Leilamani.

    Sarojini Naidu joined the Indian national movement in the wake of partition of Bengal in 1905. She came into contact with Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Rabindranath Tagore, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Annie Besant, C.P.Rama Swami Iyer, Gandhiji and Jawaharlal Nehru. She awakened the women of India. She brought them out of the kitchen. She traveled from state to state, city after city and asked for the rights of the women. She reestablished self-esteem within the women of India. Now Indian women can walk with the men, they are equal and given equal rights. But it was hard then. By her vast and hard efforts we can see the modern Indian women otherwise they would still be in the kitchen.

    In 1925, Sarojini Naidu presided over the annual session of Indian National Congress at Kanpur. Sarojini Naidu played a leading role during the Civil Disobedience Movement and was jailed along with Gandhiji and other leaders. In 1942, Sarojini Naidu was arrested during the “Quit India” movement and was jailed for 21 months with Gandhiji. She shared a very warm relationship with Gandhiji and used to call him “Mickey Mouse”. 🙂

    After Independence, Sarojini Naidu became the Governor of Uttar Pradesh. She was India’s first woman governor. Sarojini Naidu died from heart attack in office in Lucknow on March 2 ,1949. After her death there were the mourn of days clearly India lost her greatest freedom fighter, a role model, a visionary, a poet and a Philosopher.

    The Akbarnama

    The Akbarnama which translates to Book of Akbar , is the official chronicle of the reign of
    Akbar , the third Mughal Emperor (r. 1556–1605), commissioned by Akbar himself by his court historian and biographer, Abul Fazl who was one of the nine jewels in his court . It was written in Persian, the literary language of the Mughals, and includes vivid and detailed descriptions of his life and times.

    Abul Fazl who wrote this book, it included the work between 1590 and 1596 and is thought to have been illustrated between 1592 and 1594 by at least forty-nine different artists from Akbar’s studio.

    It took 7 years to complete this book and included the original manuscripts contained a number of paintings supporting the texts, and all the paintings represented the
    Mughal school of painting , and work of masters of the imperial workshop. Which makes it more beautiful and royal.

    After Akbar’s death in 1605, the manuscript remained in the library of his son, Jahangir (r. 1605-1627) and later Shah Jahan (r. 1628-1658). Today, the illustrated manuscript of
    Akbarnma , with 116 miniature paintings, is at the Victoria and Albert Museum. (Source Wikipedia)

    It is the official history of Akbar’s time in the three volumes. It also includes the history of Akbar’s forefathers from Timur to Humayun.

    Three Volumes:-

    1) The first volume deals with the birth of Akbar , the history of Timur’s family and the reigns of Babur and Humayun and the Suri sultans of Delhi.
    2) The second volume describes the detailed history of the reign of Akbar till 1602, and records the events during Akbar’s reign.
    3) The Third Volume is known as Ain-I-Akabari which gives the administrative details of Akbar’s time.

    Here’s what Abul Fazl says in the book and his description in some books :-

    In his description of Hinduism, Abu’l Fazl tries to relate everything back to something that the Muslims could understand. Many of the orthodox Muslims thought that the Hindus were guilty of two of the greatest sins, polytheism and idolatry (Andrea; Overfield: “A Muslim’s Description of Hindu Beliefs and Practices,” “The Human Record,” page 61.)

    On the topic of idolatry, Abu’l Fazl says that the symbols and images that the Hindus carry are not idols, but merely are there to keep their minds from wandering. He writes that only serving and worshipping God is required. ( Fazl, A: “Akbarnama,” Andrea; Overfield: “The Human Record,” page 62.)

    Abul Fazl also describes the Caste system to his readers. He writes the name, rank, and duties of each caste. He then goes on to describe the sixteen subclasses which come from intermarriage among the main four. Abu’l Fazl next writes about Karma about which he writes, “This is a system of knowledge of an amazing and extraordinary character, in which the learned of Hindustan concur without dissenting opinion.” He places the actions and what event the ( Fazl, A: “Akbarnama,” Andrea; Overfield: “The Human Record,” page 63.)

    He places the actions and what event they bring about in the next life into four different kinds. First, he writes many of the different ways in which a person from one class can be born into a different class in the next life and some of the ways in which a change in gender can be brought about. He classifies the second kind as the different diseases and sicknesses one suffers from. The third kind is actions which cause a woman to be barren, or the death of a child. And the fourth kind deals with money and generosity, or lack thereof. (Fazl, A: “Akbarnama,” Andrea; Overfield: “The Human Record,” page 63-64.)

    The Ain-i-Akbari is currently housed in the Hazarduari Palace, in West Bengal.

    It has some beautiful manuscript and painting which make it a beautiful art work in the modern days, it also has some memories from the past which let us know about that Great Mugals time period.

    The Hunter Education Commission

    After the Charles Wood’s despatch of education in 1882, then viceroy Lord Rippon made a commission and William Hunter appointed as the president. It also included 8 Indian members. The Government desired that “the commission should specially bear in mind the great importance which the Government attaches to the subject of primary education”. The primary task of this commission was to give suggestions on Primary & secondary education.

    Reason :-

    In 1870 when education transfered to the states the situation of primary and secondary education got worsen, the reason was the limited resources. It was hard to expand the education. Not everyone could afford education.

    The main suggestions given by Hunter Commission :-

    1) The Government should focus on primary education’s development and growth and subjects should include local languages. It (Primary education) will be control by the District or municipal board. The efforts of private sector should be considered if they are not playing a role in education the tax can be imposed for education by district or municipal board.

    2) The Government should not take the control on higher education rather Government should manage funds and give special grants to them.

    3) Secondary education should be divided in two parts. One Vocational education should be given which will help students in business and its related activities and second Cultural education should be given which will help them to attend college.

    4) The commission also felt sorry in the education sector for women & suggested presidency states should have female education management and force them to raise the standards and motivated them to make it best for female.

    Many suggestions were accepted by Government which resulted in increasing the number of schools. His suggestions included in education system and implemented over the period of 1882 to 1902

    The suggestions given by this commission spread rapidly. Middle class benefited the most. Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan ( then Punjab, India) and Allahabad University in Allahabad, India (1887) were formed.

    Number of secondary schools in 1881-82 which raised from 3,916 to 5,124 in 1901-1902.
    Number of students also raised from 2,14,077 in 1881-82  to 4,90,129 in 1901-02.
    And Technical collage and technical university were also set up.

    Clearly this commission was the milestone in the history of Indian education system few of the suggestions are still implemented by the Government. And few are modified as per the need.

    Shimla Conference

    image

    Shimla conference was the historical event in Indian history and had played a significant role in the process of independent India. Shimla conference was the meeting between the viceroy and major political leaders of British India in summer capital British India at Shimla, India on 25 June 1945 to discuss the provisions of Wavell plan.

    The Wavell Plan :-

    In May 1945 Wavell visited London and discussed his ideas with the British Government. These London talks resulted in the formulation of a definite plan of action which was officially made public simultaneously on June 14, 1945 by L.S. Amery, the Secretary of State for India, in the House of Commons and by Wavell in a broadcast speech delivered from Delhi. The plan, commonly known as the Wavell Plan, proposed the following : –

    1. If all the Indian political parties would agree to help the British war effort, then the British Government would introduce constitutional reforms in India after the war.
    2. The Viceroy’s Executive Council would be immediately reconstituted and the number of its members would be increased.
    3. In the Council there would be equal representation of high-caste Hindus and Muslims.
    4. Other minorities including low-caste Hindus, Shudders and Sikhs would be given representation in the Council.
    5. All the members of the Council, except the Viceroy and the Commander-in-Chief, would be Indians.
    6. An Indian would be appointed as the member for Foreign Affairs in the Council. However, a British commissioner would be responsible for trade matters.
    7. The defence of India would remain in British hands until power was ultimately transferred to Indians.
    8. The Viceroy would convene a meeting of Indian politicians including the leaders of Congress and the Muslim League at which they would nominate members of the new Council.
    9. If this plan were to be approved for the central government, then similar councils of local political leaders would be formed in all the provinces.
    10. None of the changes suggested would in any way prejudice or prejudge the essential form of the future permanent Constitution of India.
    Source :- Wikipedia and Time Magazine

    21 Indian leaders invited to the conference. These leaders included Maulana Abul Kalam Azad who was the President of Congress at that time, Leader of Muslim League Muhammad Ali. Jinna and leaders of national parties, scheduled caste, Sikh etc. were also presented. Other leaders ( Who participated) – P. Jawahar Lal Nehru, Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel, Tara Singh and Ismail Khan.

    This conference started on June 25, 1945 and ended after 19 days on July 14, 1945. In this conference Jinna made a strange claim he said that no other party could nominate a Muslim to the member of executive Council, which would make the League the sole representative of Indian Muslims. Which was the reason of the failure of this conference. This claim of Jinna was unreasonable and nondemocratic in nature that is why Congress was against it.

    Muslims represented only 25% of the total population but to satisfy the league Wavell had given 6 positions out of 14 to the Muslims in executive council. Still, the League was against this provision. Jinna demanded the Vito power to Viceroy with some safeguards. For example if there is any proposal which would harm the Muslim members it has to be approved with not less than 2/3 of majority.

    Lord Wavell refused these unreadable demands of Jinna and concluded the failure of this conference.

    After the failure of the conference Jinnah explained:
    “…if we accept this arrangement, the Pakistan issue will be shelved and out into cold storage indefinitely, whereas the Congress will have secured under this arrangement what they want, namely, a clear road for their advance towards securing Hindu national independence of India, because the future Executive will work as unitary Government of India, and we know that this interim or provisional arrangement will have a way of settling down for an unlimited period, and all the forces in the proposed Executive, plus the known policy of the British Government and Lord Wavell’s strong inclination for a united India, would completely jeopardize us.”

    The Simla Conference failed to break the deadlock, but two important events took place in the wake of the conference which made a new initiative possible. With the surrender of Japan on August 15, 1945, the Second World War came to an end, and the Labour Party came to power in Britain. Lord Wavell visited London, and on return to India, announced on September 19, 1942, that the British Government was still working “in the spirit of he Cripps Offer of 1942” and intended to convene a constitution-making body. Elections to the central and provincial legislatures, which were in any case overdue, were announced. Indian politics were again deeply stirred and entered a period of intense excitement, interminable negotiations and bitter controversy.
