Open Letter by Chahat Bhatia

 Dear Gunjan Saxena,

Today I saw you, and want to salute you, the first Indian female pilot in combat and the first women to be the part of Kargil War. I not just only saw you, but I felt you. I felt your every struggle and hard work, and then I realised where I lacked in accomplishing my dreams.

You just not saw a dream, but you dwelled with it and embraced it. You got yourself committed with your desire to the extent that nobody could thought of stopping you. And nobody could stopped you.

When you were 5, you saw a dream to become a pilot, and when you got 20, you had the same passion in your psyche. You got sticked by your goal.
Despite confronting all the rejections, you still not back down. You jumped into the field to depict your strength, to show that no women are less powerful. You tossed out all the stereotypes that the society have selected for women. You dismissed all the comments and focused on your vision.

Also, I want you to communicate some of my words to your father " Anup Saxena". Your father was the only one who stood by you and helped you in dumping all the conceptions. He was your spinal cord, and he played the major part in earning your dreams.

You selected your destination, but he showed you the direction. Where everyone questioned your strength, he was making you more robust. He never motivated orthodox impressions. Your dad instructed you that a woman should never be associated with the term kitchen only. They can do much more than that. Their limits are not just till serving food to their family, but they can also serve the nation by their strength and endurance.
Every time you thought of giving up, he pumped you back to follow your dreams. I recollect some of his words that got printed on my mind that, "Jo log mehnat ka sath nhi chorte, kismat kbhi unka hath nhi chorti."

Gunjan Saxena, you're an inspiration for every woman. You're tough, ferocious and intelligent. You proved how a woman could whirl her weakness into a strength. A women knows how to stand firm when the whole of society is aiming to push her down.

Thank you so much, Gunjan Saxena, The Kargil Girl.

Impact of the Three Dharmic Faiths on Asia

Impact of the Three Ancient Dharmic (Indic - Indian) Faiths on the Continent of Asia • Hinduism (Sanskrit - Sanātana Dharma) has its roots laid deep down in the Indian Subcontinent for millenia. Originating somewhere around 7,000 to 10,000 years ago in the modern day areas of India, Pakistan and Afghanistan - it is the oldest active religion on planet Earth. • Jainism (Sanskrit - Jaina/Jina Dharma) evolved out of Hinduism during the Shramaņa movement around 3,000 years ago. It follows the teachings of the 24 Tirthankaras in order to achieve Moksha (Liberation) from Samsāra (Cycles of death and rebirth). • Buddhism (Pāli - Bauddha Dhamma) also evolved out of Hinduism with the awakening and attainment of Nirvāņa (Eternal bliss) by Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama 2,500 years ago. This faith was able to spread throughout Asia because of its revolutionary ideas and techniques to conquer one's mind - Mana. - Many societies converted to these foreign faiths. These faiths
