Mother Teresa- An Epitome of Humanity
Mother Teresa is one of the greatest humanitarian the world had. Her entire life was devoted to serving the poor and needy people. Mother Teresa received her name from the church after the name St.Teresa. She was a christian by birth and a spiritual lady. She was undoubtedly a saintly lady with oodles of kindness and compassion in her. She was a deeply pious lady and a Catholic christian. Her real name was Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. Despite being a non Indian, Mother Teresa had spent almost  her whole life serving the people of India. She gave education to poor kids, she began an era of humanity. She built missionaries for homeless people. Later on numerous schools, homes, dispensaries and hospitals were established by her both in and outside of India. She was bestowed with the title 'Saint of our times'. A very beautiful quote was said by her that "If you judge people, you have no time to love them".

Applying Henna
Just before you plan to apply henna (Mehndi) on your hands, make sure your hands are clean and properly dried. Avoid any cream and oil on your hands as they act as a barrier on your skin and minimize the absorption of the mehndi into your skin. Henna is a way to express our happiness at any festival.
Applying henna on someone’s hand is just not easy, it’s difficult for the bride to sit for hours and same as the artist it’s a hard task and If you sit in just one position for long time your back starts paining and same as your legs but If you know the bride  then you just gossip and  gossip and the time passes and you don’t even know that when you completed henna design. Now I’m sharing my experience. I started applying mehndi at the age of 13 and at that age, I didn't even know how to make a flower, especially by mehndi cone but I tried and tried. I used to draw a flower on my hand.  Many times the design went wrong but I washed and tried again.
Then my grandmother told me that I can do a trial on her hand. Then I tried it, and it looked very good. My speed was very slow at that time but now I can apply any kind of design on hand. My speed has also increased and I enjoy applying henna and If any festival arrives like Teej, Raksha Bandhan, diwali etc I apply henna on everyone’s hand in my family. Now I’m very good at it.   If you are interested in mehndi you can apply it and learn it.

जहाँ चाह वहाँ राह 
जिस काम को हम मन से करना चाहते है , उसके लिए हम दिन - रात मेहनत करते हैं। हमें अपना लक्ष्य के निर्धारित करते हुए प्रयास करना  चाहिए। अन्यथा हमें सफलता नहीं मिलेगी। मजबूत होने वाले लोग वे हैं , जो अपने जीवन में कुछ चमत्कार कर सकते हैं। मानव इच्छा शक्ति बहुत शक्तिशाली है, जो किसी भी कठिनाई को हरा सकती है और आश्चर्यजनक परिणाम दे सकती है। इसका एक उदाहरण मैं बताना चाहती हूँ। 
बबली नाम की एक लड़की राजस्थान के एक गाँव में पली - बढ़ी। उसे बाईक चलाना बहुत पसंद था। जब भी मौका मिलता निकल पड़ती अपने भाई की बाईक उठा कर उसे चलाना सीखने। उसकी माँ ने उसे रोकते हुए कहा - छोरी रहन दे ये छोरियो का काम ना है। पर उस पर तो जुनून सवार था। एक दिन निकल पड़ी अपनी बाईक पर तवांग , अरुणाचल प्रदेश के लिए। 2600 किलोमीटर बाईक चला कर पूरे 53  घंटे का सफर तय कर पहुँच गई तवांग। इस तरह न सिर्फ रिकॉर्ड तोड़ा , बल्कि अपने गाँव का नाम भी रोशन किया। अपने जज्बे से यह साबित किया कि जहाँ चाह है वहाँ राह है।

Courage
Courage is the mental and emotional preparedness and ability to deal with difficulties and challenges. Each person possesses this value, and his or her life must deal with various life challenges. I recall an incident that took place a few days ago at the Vangani station in Mumbai. A person named Mayur Shelkar saved a baby's life in front of the train. The baby was playing at the station, and his mother was blind. While playing, he fell on the track. As his mother was blind, she knew nothing about it. The train got too close to the baby. Mayur Shekar saw this and ran to save the baby without thinking about his own life. And he picked the baby safely from the front of the train and saved his life. This is true courage. Salute to his courage.

पुस्तक - मेरी प्रिय मित्र
पुस्तक जीवन है क्योंकि सब आपको छोड़ सकते है परन्तु पुस्तक नहीं । इसे पढ़ने  की कोई उम्र नहीं होती । इससे आप बहुत सारी खोजों के बारे में पढ़ सकते हो,  इतिहास के बारे में पढ़ सकते  हो, पूरी दुनिया के बारे में और अंतरिक्ष के बारे में जान सकते हो, आप इससे अपना भविष्य बना सकते हो आदि । 
अगर पुस्तक नहीं होती तो शायद आज हम इतने अग्रिम नहीं होते , हमको लिखना नहीं आता , हमको पता नहीं होता कि कौनसा देश कहाँ आया हुआ है आदि ।
पुस्तकें तो बहुत सारी है परन्तु मेरी प्रिय पुस्तक है  मैकेनिकल पुस्तक।  इससे मैं नई नई चीजें बनाना सीखता हूँ, नई चीजों के बारे में जानता हूँ, इसको करने मुझे मजा आता है। जब भी मैं खाली बैठा होता हूँ, तब यह पुस्तक पढ़ता हूँ। यह मेरी प्रिय पुस्तक है।

Compassion
Compassion is as vital to life as the air we breathe. For in the absence of compassion, how many benevolent, selfless and heroic deeds would have happened throughout history?
Compassion is helping to relieve another person’s suffering through acts of kindness, caring, and support. It includes empathy, but it goes beyond that.
Empathy is being present to another person’s suffering. It’s feeling and sensing their emotional experience. It’s being non-judgmental. This doesn't judge how another person is dealing or not dealing with a difficult situation. Compassion is being more concerned with the wellbeing of others, rather than yourself. Being more compassionate helps reduce anxiety by taking your mind off yourself. It gives you a break from your own problems and worries. When you grasp and understand what someone else is going through, you appreciate your own life more.  You realize that your life is okay. You gain a different perspective on your life.
I believe that compassion is the opposite of fear. It’s almost impossible to experience fear when you’re expressing compassion. This is because your mind and heart are totally connected with what the other person is going through. Being compassionate reduces stress, especially when you practice self-compassion. You’ll drive yourself less hard and develop a sense of perspective around your own issues and deadlines. They will seem less important to you. Self-compassion helps reduce burnout. You’ll look after yourself better and take more breaks.
