Merry Christmas

I enjoyed following India Test Cricket

I really enjoyed following India Vs South Africa Cricket first Test match recently. It was a fully loaded game where both the teams showed the spirit. But I would say the seem to be underdog Indian team having failed the one day series, did a great job in taking the full control of the game.
My key takeaways from the recent IND Vs SA is as below
1) We had to experiment with inexperienced irrespective of the results and its worth it.
2) A sport is a real sport only when both the sides play to the full spirit of winning
3) Test series is like a War. It needs strategies.
4)A written off team member will give his full if he is given an opportunity to prove himself.
5) Everyone should strive to be "..remembered as the guy who gave his all whenever he was on the field..."
6) A sport has a psychological element for each individual and as a team
7) Striking early is one of the strategies
8) One should not play for records; however, keep playing.

Power of Gayatri Mantra

Though we all have been introduced to various mantras in one way or the other, we do not practice them regularly. In a recent conversation with a friend, I realized Gayatri Mantra has so much power that can make so much difference to us in several ways.
Since boyhood, I have been used to question every ritual because I did not understand why we need to do certain things in certain way. Now, we have all the resources to know what is what.
I researched to some extent to understand the power of Gayatri Mantra. For this Universe, Sun is the source of energy. Whether one believes in God or not, one should workship the Sun.
Given our lifestyle, I was thinking to chant the Gayatri Mantra mentally. However, once as I was walking to office, I chanted in my lips - I could feel the vibration in my body. I recall that scientific researches have been done to measure the quantitative effect of this mantra in the form of waves.
These days I chant whenever I get distracted to align my thoughts and balance my mind.
The vibrations of Gayatri Mantra would reflect inside of our body and make a positive difference to the essential body parts - including the cellular level.
