#SecuringTheNation

“The joy of giving is greater than the joy of receiving”

is the famous saying.

A True Satisfaction is in #DaanUtsav.

#DaanUtsav

There are some special moments in everyone’s life where they experienced the feeling of happiness, satisfaction and peace just by giving someone. God loves those who find joy in giving and contribute for #DaanUtsav.

 “Joy increases as you give it and diminishes as you try to keep it with you”. So the more happiness you give the more you get in return.

#DaanUtsav helps to forget problem & welcome happiness.

Studies show that most people when they are sad or depressed, but when they get involved in giving out something, it brightens up their mood and makes them happy. As in, a pregnant lady who suffers a lot of health issues, mood swings, etc during her pregnancy period finds joy,  happiness when she experiences a new life stirring inside her, when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the first time, a playful kick in a tummy, etc and forgets all her problems, because it is her responsibility to take care of new life growing inside her. If a person thinks positive and keeps the intention of helping others, by hook or by crook he will surely find the correct path.

Most of us love to listen to stories, stories have power and they help us use more of our mind, imagination and creativity. One of the stories, I would like to share is, once there was a small boy, who was crossing through the forest carrying woods. On the way he saw an old man hungry, but had no food to give, he moved further and found a thirsty deer but had no water to give it to deer, he moved away and then he found a man who wanted to build a camp but had no woods, the boy saw this and offered woods to that man, in return the man gave him some food and water. Then he went back to the old man and gave him some food and gave some water to the deer. The old man and the deer were very happy, the boy himself was very happy since he helped someone who was in need.

Real Life Story of Unknown Heros

One more real-life story I’d like to share would be of the old man. There was a dim light near an ATM booth, which scared a hawaldar who was going on rounds, he saw small kids sitting in front of a giant man, having pen n pencil with books, he was shocked and couldn’t wait to reach the place. As soon as he reached closer, he found  20 students studying and a teacher teaching was ATM security guard. His eyes and heart melted like ice, he was overwhelmed by the gesture the security guard was doing by teaching the students, when out of curiosity he asked the security guard, about his profession, he named himself as Ex-army man Now retired, utilizing the dim light of ATM to teach the needy poor kids so that, the future of the nation can be saved. He said the only thing I have is knowledge and time which I can give to the kids this is a real example of #DaanUtsav.

Often with time, we feel like we cannot really give anything to anyone since we ourselves don’t have enough resources or time to give it to others. But this is not the reality, In the #DaanUtsav try to give to others, the more we give the more we get. There is a famous saying “Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting”. There are so many things we can offer to those around us either by money or free of cost. If u have materialistic things to give, to others, who have less than you, give it. If you don’t have material possession to offer, give them your time, your knowledge, your love, efforts and support and also many others things which cost you nothing but values the most to the needy.

My Little #DaanUstav Deed for HIV Positive Kids.

Joy of Giving & #DaanUtsav for kids

Every year my hubby and I decide to make someone happy on occasion which we can make our best. This year we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with HIV + kids in Navi Mumbai Social Desire society. This is an orphanage for HIV + kids only. The moment we entered the room the kids, wished us saying good morning to us. We were so happy at first instance looking at their smiles, then we served them food, and smiling faces made our stomach full. We played games, distributed gifts and toys to them. We also had chat with them. This whole incident made us realize that joy of giving cannot be replaced with anything else in the world. My kids too enjoyed so much that, now it has become a ritual in the family to celebrate a birthday in morning with them and then celebrate with others.

#DaanUtsav for HIV+ Kids

Different people from different communities, of a different religion, find or can say follow many different ways to serve the needy. There are also many different centres in different parts of the country like ashrams, orphanage, etc, which serve the people in need of #. Someone once said, “To help the poor is to help yourself”. Practically it means that helping those in need will later result in internal satisfaction and happiness.

#DaanUtsav with Kids

At last, I would only say that the joy of giving cannot be put into words because the joy of giving has no end, it can only be felt. The joy of serving others can be felt on the face of the recipient. Basically, giving means ensuring that you are making someone happy by providing them what they need, the only thing is one should understand that,

”We make a living by what we get. WE make a life by what we give”.

Shashthi: Kalaparambho (Pre-Puja Arrangements)

This day marks the beginning of the actual celebrations as the deity is believed to have arrived in the mortal world, on this day, with her four children – Ganesha, Kartik, Lakshmi, and Saraswati. The idol of Mother Durga is welcomed at pandals and devotees celebrate her arrival after a yearlong wait.

Saptami: Kola Bou worship

On Saptami, “Kola Bou” (Banana Plant) is worshipped and placed beside Lord Ganesha, signifying the arrival of his wife. Nine different plants are brought together and tied to the banana tree – each representing a Goddess – and they are collectively called “Nabapatrika” or “Kolabou”. The turmeric plant signifies Goddess Durga and is dressed in a yellow, red-bordered silk sari.

‘Durga Ashtami’: The Ritual of Rituals

This is considered the most important day of the festival – the day you tend to save your best clothes and make up for. Of course, people still want to stand in queues outside the crowded ‘pandals’ and they make sure they don’t miss the morning ‘pushpanjali’ (flower offering to the God)!

Major rituals on the day include the sacrifice of a bottle gourd symbolizing the end of the demon ‘Mahishasura’ who was believed to be half-human and half-buffalo.

Nabami: Pandal Hopping Day

The day commences with ‘Sandhi Puja’ which starts in the last 24 minutes of Maha-Ashtami and extends into 24 minutes of the 9th day.

Dashami: ‘Shubho Vijayadashami’

The final day of the long festive celebration. Women playfully smear the faces of their companions with sindoor (vermilion) as a mark of the victory of good over evil.

‘Ma Durga’ is immersed with the promise ‘Asche bochhor abaar hobey’ (May the celebrations resume next year) and the belief that she will now return to Mount Kailash to be with Shiva and the cosmos. People greet each other with the salutation ‘Shubho Bijoya’ – meaning ‘The Auspicious Victory’ – and exchange sweets and gifts, amidst the grief of the immortal power departing.

 

The Multi-City Creative Awareness Program #IamSecure Programme

One of India’s most reliable security solutions provider, Godrej Security Solutions, initiated a multi-city awareness programme and campaign for the consumers namely ‘#IAmSecure ‘. Creating awareness among women for Safety and security to be more proactive and taking care of their own security, introducing them to the various solutions and also educating them about the importance of learning self-defense for leading a safer and secure life was the core objective of this campaign. The first leg of this campaign was held on 17th Aug, in Mumbai at Godrej one. Over 150 women from different walks of life pledging to take charge of their security attendee the event making it a huge success in the eyes of Godrej as well as the responsible ladies.

Safety and security for women

The event began with famous Indian Stand-up Comedian Atul Khatri taking a humourous dig at the security preparedness among citizens in India. This was followed by a panel discussion on ‘Safety and security for women is a fundamental right’, which was moderated by Sunil Mehta, Senior Vice President & Area Systems Director – Central Asia, JWT. The panelist included: Mehernosh Pithawalla, Global Head – Marketing, Sales & Innovation, Godrej Security Solutions Division, Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd; Sandhya Shetty, model, actor, TV presenter and karate champion; Harshada Patil, a legal expert on cases pertaining to sexual harassment, senior representatives from the police force.

According to a recent report by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in India, every day 312 burglary, 99 robbery, and 1281 theft cases are recorded. Women, children, and senior citizens are the victims of such gruesome incidents. Addressing the event, Lata Dattatray Sutar, Senior Female inspector, said,

“While the police department is working relentlessly to ensure safety and security of women in the society, it is also important for women to become more aware of their surroundings, rights and take charge of their security. A collaborative effort will further help to fight against this issue.”

 

Adding to Lata’s opinion, Mehernosh said,

“One of the biggest impediments to the adoption of security solutions in India has been a reactive attitude towards adopting solutions to safeguard one's valuables and loved ones. Society is getting more tech-rich and empowered, and yet we remain as vulnerable to crime as before. Today’s safety and security anxieties are tied up not just with personal safety, but with the safety of our loved ones at homes, workplaces, schools and campuses, public places and so on. Hence it is important that women too now take charge of their security and pledge to keep themselves as well as their families secure too. We need to make a fundamental change in our behavior and be more proactive about security.”

 

Sandhya Shetty, who spoke in detail how learning Karate made her feel more secure and confident opined,

 “As they say, prevention is better than cure. It is important that women should learn self-defense and be more aware of their environment and the security threats. I firmly believe that learning self-defense improves agility, alertness and adds to your confidence too as it reduces your dependencies on others for security.”
