Pola Festival is celebrated throughout the state of Maharashtra, in the Hindu month of Shravan (that usually coincides August). It falls on day of Pithori Amavasya (new moon day) in Shravan. The festival marks the day when farmers worship their bulls and they are not given any routine work during the two days.. On the day before Pola Festival, fa rmers remove 'vesan' (the rope) from the nostrils of their bull. Thereafter, they apply a paste of turmeric powder and ground nut oil, on its shoulders. Finally, the bull is given a hot water bath and served with khichadi, made of bajari. On the day of the festival, the bull is taken to the nearest river or pond and given a thorough bath. The farmers then paint the bull's horns and put colorful ornaments over them. Lastly, an ornamented shawl is put over the body of the bullocks and their neck is adorned with flower garlands. After decorating the bulls, the farmers worship them. Evening time is reserved for taking enthusiastic processions of all the bulls in the area, beautifully adorned, through the streets. Side by side, instruments like drums, bugles, lezims are played loudly (a typical Indian musical instrument), etc. At some of the villages in India, even fairs are organized as a part of the celebrations. The major attractions of these fairs comprise of competitions and outdoor games like volleyball, wrestling, kabaddi,etc. In towns and cities, instead of worshipping bulls, people worship their statues, either wooden or earthen. Last but not the least, Puran Poli (a sweet dish) adds the perfect flavor to the festivities.

The nee of the hour is not the just talk of peace, progress and prosperity But honest efforts and step in that direction and one importantly in the field of politics of India. As we Indian have opted for democracy so we need leadership. And politicians play the role to exercise it from villages to capital city of India. Initially leaders were come front to reach the basic requirements of the needed people of our country. So at the certain extent our nation attained development and still it is going on. But we don't find as it should be as our fundamental needs to be met. We speak about to step on the moon and it is must if we want to be in the technological flow and the race of the rest countries. But when we peep onto the ground level with encountering problems, we feel great fear of all that. Politicians are lot. They come front for the welfare of people with the various criticisms of the rests. They elect after much expenditure as we see when the elections are held. How do we expect from them the real welfare and progress of the certain area? The politicians and other responsible for the today’s cause. We know the hardships and attainment of Gandhi, Sardar Patel and Lalbahadur Shastri and many more. They were gone through continuous hard work and upliftment of subjects and that is pure patriotism. The real social service never asks for the investment of personal property or money. And if it is seen then something is going wrong. Patriotism is far away from the hearts of the most of the present day politicians as can be judged from their cumulative actions of thoughts and deed which have brought the country in the danger and its democracy. They are very close to change the meaning of democracy as we see how they behave. Population, Poverty, corruption and terrorism are the basic causes to hold back us from the progress of masses. We are independence but made busy in unfolding tasks. Having put the country in its correct perspectives in the hearts of masses and on the globe we must eradicate the problems of Population, Poverty, corruption and terrorism. And so for we must keep off the selfish and discriminative thinking aside and understand the right of every life here on. If the present trends continue, posterity will only blame the present generation for forcing the country in the burning problems ever. And why don’t we see by our open eyes that the developed India cannot be built by the recurring problems such as Population, Poverty, corruption and terrorism, if some of third rated leaders (selfish) hold the decisive posts in the country.

PEACE OF MIND.The article is a second part of and continued here.......................................................................................................................................................... VISWAJIVANREKHA- Peace Of Mind-Article-II/Part:-II...Continued.......... Here we will go through six basic routine behaviors with we come across directly or indirectly, And how can we overcome from, let’s see............ (E). Change yourself according to the environment:- If you try to change the environment single evenhandedly, the chances are you may fail. Instead, change yourself to suit the environment. As you do this, even the environment, which has remained unfriendly for you, will mysteriously appear to be congenial and harmonious. (F). Endure what cannot be cured:- This is the best way to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Every day we face numerous inconveniences, ailments, irritations and accidents that are beyond our control. We must learn to endure them cheerfully thinking, "God will it so, so be it". God's logic is beyond our comprehension. Believe it and you will gain in patience, in inner strength, in will power. (G). Do not bite more than you can chew:- This maxim should be always remembered. We often tend to take more responsibilities than we are capable to carry out. This is done to satisfy our ego. Know your limitations. Spend your free time on prayers, introspection and meditation. This will reduce those thoughts in your mind, which make you restless. Fewer the thoughts, greater is the peace of mind. (H). Meditate regularly:- Meditation makes the mind thoughtless. This is the highest state of peace of mind. Try and experience it. If you meditate earnestly for half an hour every day, you will tend to become calm during the remaining twenty-three and a half hours. Your mind will not be disturbed as much as before. This will increase your efficiency and you will turn out more work in less time. (I). Never leave the mind vacant:- An empty mind is devil's workshop. All evil deeds start in the mind. Keep your mind occupied in something positive, something worthwhile. Actively follow a hobby. You must decide what you value more - money or peace of mind. Your hobby, like social work may not always earn you more money, but you will have a sense of fulfillment and achievement. (J). Do not postpone and never be disappointed:- Do not waste time in wondering "should I or shouldn't I?" Days, weeks, months and years may be wasted in that futile mental debating. You can never plan enough because you can never anticipate all future happenings. Always remember God has His own plan too. Value your time and do things. It does not matter if you fail the first time. You can rectify your mistakes and succeed the next time. Sitting back and worrying will lead to nothing. Learn from your mistakes but do not brood over the past. I confidently say it will decrease much of the stress of our routine .. ..........Thank You.....

Problems Occur :- We, the wise people of the nation expect the progress in the field of education...........but to whom the task is availed....of course the kids or children....Have we ever observed the fact of the situation and their age thinking ?....may be yes or never .......But up to what depth....? A) The most troubling thing in our society today is how children treat each other. We try to teach our children to have high morals so they will be honest and kind when they become older. But how are our children acting when grownups are not around. Kids tend to classify each other by how rich their parents are and how well they dress. To a child who is classified as being poor the ridicule and constant teasing can be overwhelming possibly causing many psychological problems. B) Children want a lot of things and as parents we would like to give those things to them. But a lot of the time we can't afford to. With the rising cost of living it is hard for some people to even put food on the table. With the price of designer label clothes being so high many people can only afford to shop at Malls. To a child fashion is everything if you don't look cool than you will not be accepted by others. You will be teased and made fun of. C) Children go through a lot growing up have to use their parents’ morals to battle today's social problems. Many things can effect a child's psychological behavior which in return effects the people around them Education is vital to a person who wants to make it anywhere in life. D) It is really hard to raise children being a single mom. It takes two incomes to have a stable life style. A parent would do anything for their children including giving up luxuries to put food on the table every day. It is difficult to get a good paying job if you don't have the right degrees. It's hard to try to go to school, to get the skills needed to advance in life, and hold down a low paying job and take care of your children. F) Poverty effects people throughout their life. It has many psychological effects on people such as mental anguish. Some people are good at dealing with these problems. A major point we need to get across to our children is to respect others and treat them as you would want to be treated. Our children's morals have been blown out of the water with this new age independent rebel attitude. Poverty is not a disease it's real life people just trying to survive. It is very difficult to tackle with the problems but not impossible, It needs to be treated by understanding the situation....means.....diagnosis......so, come forward with........
