Do you know?

Over 138 million people work outside their country

On 25th June, Monday morning, we boarded Emirates flight

EK225 at  8.15 AM, from Bangalore  International Airport

 and flew to Dubai.It was a 4 hours journey and we reached

Dubai at 12.30 PM. I adjusted the time in my wristwatch to

1.30 PM as per the time of the place of destination.

We  stayed at Millennium Airport  Hotel, Dubai  in room no.4035

at the 4th floor.We had the  lunch and meals at night which were

complimentary. At  5PM in the evening we enjoyed the Dubai

city tour in tourist bus of  Sun Tour.The multilingual driver

explained that Dubai is one of the 7 Emirates of  United Arab

Emirates and  is governed by the hereditary emir; 80 percent

of the population is comprised of  expatriate and Emirati nationals

account for only 20percent. There are no taxes of any sort; so there

is no tax filing  or tax-audit; Government earns money from businesses

where the expatriates  pay the fixed amount for registration. Dubai has

an impressive infrastructure which is a real pleasure for the eyes.

‘Burj Khalifa’, in Dubai is the tallest structure (829.84metre) in the world.

The driver led us to the musical fountain in front of the hotel and we

enjoyed the dance of the fountain water according to the play of the music.

We visited the sandy beaches of  Jumeirah, the Gold Souk, with it’s

dazzling array of shops selling jewelry the Spice Souk with shops

that piled high the spices from around the world. The cost of city

tour of 4 hours from 5PM to 9PM was 30$ per head. It  is  my first

visit to Dubai and the  rich and satisfying experience will be

remembered for the years to come.

ಕನ್ನಡ ಸೌರಭ.

ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ ಸೌರಭ.

ಹೆಂಡತಿಯನ್ನು ಪ್ರೀತಿಸುವುದು ಗಂಡನ ಧರ್ಮ;

ಅವಳಿಂದ ಆಕರ್ಷಿತನಾಗಿರುವುದು ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ಧರ್ಮ;

ಅವಳೊಡನೆ ಸೌಜನ್ಯದಿಂದ ವರ್ತಿಸುವುದು, ಸುಖ

ವಾಗಿಟ್ಟಿರುವುದು ಮಾನವೀಯ ಧರ್ಮ; ಅದಕ್ಕಿಂತಲೂ

ಮಿಗಿಲಾದ ಧರ್ಮ ಒಂದಿದೆ. ಪತ್ನಿಯ ಬಗೆಗೆ ಒಂದು

ವಿಧದ ಭಕ್ತಿ ಭಾವವೂ ಬೇಕು. ಮನೆಗೆ ದೈವತ್ವದ ಕಳೆ

ಕೊಡುವ ದೇವತೆಯೇ ಅವಳು. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದಲೇ ಇರಬೇಕು

ನಮ್ಮವರು ಅವಳನ್ನು “ಗೃಹಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ” ಎಂದು ಕರೆದುದು.

We can make one lakh match sticks from a tree. But

one match stick can burn to ashes, one lakh trees.

Likewise, one negative thought can ruin our one lakh

paper  submitted to  the  Institute  of  Advanced Physics

Health Corner:

Take a brief  mid-afternoon stroll to stretch your legs

but  always avoid wrong postures. If you walk leaning

backward, you will shift  the weight of your upper body

onto your lower back. So, stand tall as you stride,

centring your weight over the balls of your feet.

For maximum  walking efficiency, keep your feet

a little apart and chin parallel to the ground.

Spiritual Corner:

Lord  Shiva gave us all the things necessary to lead a

comfortable life  but  refused to give us those things

which we are not eligible to get. The  mischievous Lord

kept the truth in darkness and tied the eyes of  Goddess

of Justice with black clothes and escaped into His abode

at Kailasa,  asking   the people to  struggle hard  for finding

truth and getting  justice.Lord placed the ethereal aamla

fruit  at a great height in a strong tree  and  gave to the slender

creeper  on the Earth, the heavy pumpkin.

What the mirror reflects?

Along with the development  of  beauty consciousness 

in humanbeings,  the mirror also was devised. The mirror

never lies. It reflects the true image of a person who stands

before it. And because of  this nature of mirror, it has become

the victim of  hatred by the displeased viewer who breaks it

into pieces. One  may break the mirror into hundred pieces

but it never gives up its disposition of reflection.Every piece

reflects the full image of the person who casts a glance at it. 

However, we should not think that the mirror reflects the truth. Whatever it

reflects is only reverse image of the viewer. The treasure we see

in the mirror is only illusion. We cannot reach for it. Whatever the

mirror reflects is only the image of a person;  not the inner thoughts

of a person.It reflects the lines on his/her forehead; not the writings

written by the destiny on his/her forehead. It reflects only the tears

flowing on the cheeks; it can’t reflect the pain that caused the tears.

Literature  is said to be the mirror of society. It means that the writer

is the mirror who reflects the image of existing flaws in society.

The mirror may be big, but  if  there are many scratches or lines in it 

we cannot see the clear image . So also, the writer cannot reflect

the true image of the society, if  he is a conventionist. The mirror

may be small but it should be clean without any scratches.The society

 wants such literature which  reflects the honest image 

like a clean mirror  instead of a mirror with scratches  that reflects the 

image with flaws.

in Kannada, named”Thousand  images shown by an illusion

called mirror” by Ms.Deepaa Hiregutti,reader and writer.

Object Of Prayer.

A knife is sharpened by rubbing against flint;

the knife thinks  that  the flint is giving something

to make it sharper. Actually, the knife loses some

metal from the edge to make it sharper. Same is

the case with prayer. In prayer you make yourself

sharper  by rubbing against God.

What if the knife is made of special steel or

self-sharpening  steel? It  does not require

sharpening at all.

Remember that there are people in the world

who do not pray at all and still are none the worse

for it.

All the same, prayer is highly desirable  to ensure

an orderly society. It is the best  insurance available

to protect your children against gun culture, crime,

drugs, smoking, AIDS and alcohol.

Even an atheist  can become a better atheist by prayer.

After all, you require some flint to rub your knife to make

it sharper and among all the flints available, what is better

than God? After all, the real object of  prayer is to upgrade
