आज ‘विश्व आर्थ्राइटिस दिवस’ है। आर्थ्राइटिस आम भाषा मे ‘जोड़ों का दर्द’ होता है। यह ग्रीक शब्द से लिया गया है। ग्रीक मे आथ्रो का मतलब है ‘जोड़ा’ और आईटिस का मतलब है ‘सूजन’। इंसान के शरीर मे जोड़ों की एहम भूमिका होती है। विभिन्न तरह के चलन और काम-काज इंसान जोड़ों की मदद से ही कर पाता है। एक तरह से हम यह भी कह सकते हैं की जोड़े हमे कोई भी काम करने

आये दिन ‘लव जिहाद’ के ऊपर काफी चर्चा हो रही है। आखिरकार यह ‘लव जिहाद’ है क्या? हाल ही देश के उच्चतम न्यालय ने ‘लव जिहाद’ के एक केस की तहकीकात करने के लिए ‘राष्ट्रीय जांच एजेंसी’ (NIA) को नियुक्त किया है। क्या यह समस्या इतनी संगीन है की इसके पीछे NIA को नियुक्त किया जाना चाहिए? जहां कुरान मे जिहाद का मतलब ‘धरम युद्ध’ है, वहीँ कुछ सूफी सिलसिले के गुरु मानते हैं की

Mindfulness @ Work

We have an open-office policy at work.

There is no getting away from these sounds and other ‘white noise’ that constantly and consistently intrude into one’s flow of thought.
