Fairy tales 2009

Dharamshala News Alert..A Lesson in Love and Faith..Beauty and the Beast ! , 2009 !

Dharamshala News:Fairy Tale Bond ! ,July 26,2009, News Alert Dharamsala!

There are few of us who can forget the warmth and bondage of childhood 'story times' told around, warm fire hearths and tucking under the colored quilt, listening to our favourite bed time tales. Childhood fairy tales, are the best introduction to the harsher realities of Life, for the 'young minds'.

The inevitable lesson of a protective steady and strong roofed home in the last chapter of 'Three Little Pigs' has much to say. Strength of Character and Mind are here to stay, while the Sand Castles in the Air will be blown away by any gust of wind. 'Red Riding Hood' and many other childhood tales , have many classes of wisdom to teach the young mind. The fable of 'Wolf in Sheep Clothing' and the wandering vision of 'Alice in Wonderland' is a fantasy ladder to growing up.

A personal favourite will always be, 'The Beauty and the Beast', where the Beast in all his honest love, sets Beauty free. Perhaps in his heart he always had the faith to believe that, Beauty would return, because like him, she realised that love from the soul was not 'skin-deep'!!

This weekend take a few hours off and bond with the young in your family by 'story time sessions'. You will soon realise much more than our children, we too need all the 'Fairy Tales' in our lives to come true !!

The Four Ages of Man

" He with body waged a fight, But the body won; it walks upright.

Then he struggled with the heart; Innocence and peace depart.

Then he struggled with the mind; His proud heart he left behind.

Now his wars on God begin; At stroke of midnight God shall win."

Dharamshala News: My Favourite Follow-UP,July 15,2009, News Alert Dharamsala!

One of my famous favourite English authors, George Eliot, will always stay with me, for some of the most important lessons learnt in 'life' from her narratives. In 'Mill in the Floss', Maggie always in contradiction with traditional circumstances, evolved as one of her most interesting characters.

In one of the episodes, her brother Tom comes back from a journey only to find all his pet rabbits dead, which had been left in Maggie's care. Although, young Tom had left all the instructions and the means, to take care of the rabbits with Maggie..the tragedy still happened ! Tom was careless, in not following up and depending on Maggie and Maggie in all her careless frivility forgot her promise.

Many times, we send money and gifts to somebody dear through somebody, but we forget to follow up, to find whether our well meant concern has actually reached its destination or not. Many times policies and instructions are given, but we forget once again, the inclemancies of human nature and err in assuming the work has been done. It is important to always pursue the end result of any endeavour,for the beneficiary.

For the first time, the Deputy Commissioner of Dharamsala (Kangra District), Himachal Pradesh, India, Shri.RS Gupta has taken the initiative of informing the public his contact office number for any public help and grievances. You can contact him at : 01892-222103. We wish the local administration all success in their effort for bridging the gap, for the welfare of the Himalayan state.
