Mahatma Buddha was sitting beneath a tree on the bank of Niranjana river. disgusted and exhausted as he was because of the frustration that he was still unable to attain Nirvan, the goal with which he started his long journey.Physically he was a wreck and almost half dead but still in Samaadhi mudra. Some newly married girl named Sujata was on fast with a manauti that if blessed with a male child she would offer kheer to the tree. She was blessed with a male child and she proceeded to the tree with a full fledged group of other women from the village. They were shocked to see a frail human body in samaadhi posture and thought it was the Deity to whom the manauti had to be offered. She did and felt bewildered to find that the Deity opened its eyes. Sujata offered him kheer. Sujata and other women in the group were singing a bhajan sort of song which rang into the ears of the Deity. Original song is supposed to be in Poly language but it briefly translates like this in Hindi:
Veena ke taron ko itna mat khheencho ki woh toot hi jayen
(Don’t twist and strain the wires of the flute so much for the tuning that they break ultimately and every thing flops)
Lord Buddha took it for himself and made up his mind not to overstrain his mental faculties as if life itselt is no more where is the question to pursue the mission. This in turn made Buddha the Lord Buddha
No condition, no terms and nothing like ifs and buts -every thing is unconditional and that is all without any apprehensions from either side with a serene sense of love, a love that binds them with a commitment. All this taken in its totality leaves a message of love to the humans as to how best they should behave with their partners honestly and faithfully without the least of any reservation. What humans can’t do, the animals can much away from disdain.

.India’s cultural image has been having a top rank reputation all over the world with the slogan “Yastu nariyastu poojyantey ramante tatra devta” (angels live where ladies are worshipped) and their status in the society attained much bigger a status and necessary campaign on this front brought glory with recognition sky high.Thanks to people like Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Swami Vibekanand and several others who were the great pioneers on this count leading to tremendous upliftment of the women with capability to elicit respect and dignity in the society. Now that today’s status extended to the women folks warrant a hault as heading beyound this may just lead to big social disorder creating a chaos proportionate between males and females. Heading onwards beyond society girls culture is always like distorting and diminish their grace. Frailty thy name is Woman is what Shakespear quoted and dignity and honour attained is to be retained without hyperbolising the same.
There is nothing big or small, what really matters with the circumferance is the type of life one survives in competition with other fellow being. Left to themselves an ant is as important as an elephant and a monkey or a tiger is as important to themselves so far as the life is concerned. Nothing is negligible so far as their survival is concerned. Survival of the fittest theory applies to all and is as old as the planet earth and it has capacity to make the life of an elephant once she is able to enter inside its trunk. Humans are proud of being human but that is the case of all live beings.Humans boast of their superiority but that is confined to themselves again without others taking any notice of it. On intelligence factor too all the beings are the same and this phenomenon, as we see it from human angle, should recognizably has to understand with cohesion.
