The secret of success

Initially I thought being successful is a daunting task. Not all are successful and that’s okay. But gradually I realised the real meaning of success.

After having worked in the corporate field, it became obvious to me that success is a broader term and without bringing in the Catalysts into picture the definition of success will hold no ground.

Imagine adding all veggies, oil, spices together with no flame. Would it be eatable? No. Adding all the ingredients together does not mean that the dish that is edible. It needs a Catalyst, and fire is the catalyst in this case.

Same holds true in careers and life. Most people think, โ€œI have the ingredients for success so, I will be successful.โ€ No, without bringing in catalysts, you cannot get the real success.

Mahasaptami – Calls for a Joyous & Colorful Celebration

Itโ€ฒs time again to get completely colored and lost in the devotional zeal of the Durga Puja celebrations that marks one of the most awaited and biggest festival of the Bengalis and holds immense importance for rest of the country as well.

The festival represents the great victory of goddess Durga over the demon named Mahishasura. The Maha Puja (Great Ceremony) starts from Maha Saptami.

Maha Saptami is also considered as the day when Lord Ram started preparing for his legendary battle with Ravanโ€“ the ten-headed, demon king of Lanka. History says that he prayed to Goddess Durga to make him successful in this ordeal and the powerful Goddess answered his call, as he defeated the mighty army of Ravan. It is a day of prayers, music, rituals and devotion.

The morning starts with worship of Maa Durga. Devotees offer flowers and prayers on an empty stomach, this ceremony is called Pushpanjali. After the completion of which Prasad is served among the devotees.

Durga Pujo is known for its cacophony and chaos. It is like an entire world in itself. The artistic views of pandals, colorful fireworks, and mouthwatering food delights further catalyze the Pujo celebration.

Closing on the note of the most promising Pujo sentiment: “Bolo Durga Mai Ki Joi.”
