Open Letter for "F.R.I.E.N.D.S" by Srishti Mishra

Dear F.R.I.E.N.D.S, 

This is the one with a fan's confession. I am not exaggerating anything by saying that I still go back to you on the days when I am not "doin'" good and everything seems like a "moo point". On such days I just wish that  Phoebe could cleanse my aura too. 

Like everyone I too wished that you'd come back and we'd know how was Monica and Chandler's life in Westchester County. And Chandler, did you ever run into Beyonce or was it Janice again? Has Joey finally replaced his love for meat ball subs with someone special? How are "Crap Bag" and "Princess Consuela Banana Hammock" doing? Do they have kids? Have Ross and Rachel married? Was the marriage on a cliff in Barbados at sunset? Is Emma more into dinosaurs or fashion? All these questions keep occuring in our minds but  the most important of them all is-Do you guys still hangout together? 

I have watched many shows and I like many characters but nobody could take your place. You became my best friends too. You taught us the true meaning of friendship and how friends can be family too. You taught us that it's fine to not have a "pla" Sometimes. 

 From introducing Rachel to the real world which sucked, to supporting  Chandler when he left his job and finally making him love thanksgiving.You guys always had each other's backs. You understood Monica's obsession with cleaning and let her plan everything.  You loved Phoebe for her weirdness and sang along "Smelly Cat" with her. You pretended to listen to Ross's lectures on dinosaurs because you knew how much it mattered to him. You made extra food for Joey and watched "The Days Of Our Lives"  together  to see him as Dr. Drake Ramoray in it. 

When it wasn't a good day or week or month or even a year for anyone, the other five had their back. You guys were always there for each other.  Central Perk was our happy place too. We could never enjoy Gunther's coffee there but we've lived, cried and laughed with you at Central Perk and we shall continue to do so. We can never be on a break from you guys.Waiting for you to come back. 

A member of the I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S club.

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
