SMARTNESS

what is SMARTNESS ?

Smartness is the way a person can handle different type of people in different ways. For example a smart person may be very gentle and good to a quiet mannered person because the smart person knows that's how he could extract any information or ideas he wants from that person. Similiarly,if a person is shrewd then the smart person would emloy completely different tactics and that would mean being mean and ruthless too....A girl is no different than a boy in order to acquire smartness. Personality Development not only requires development of Etiquette and good manners but also physical,mental and spirtual development. Personality is in a CAPSULE What UR....a girl can get a good personality if she remains humble,simple,hides her intellectuality in humor and leads a life of decency and decorum...!

inspirational speech of SWAMI VIVEKANANDA at CHICAGO 1893, AMERICA

11th September, 1893
Sisters and Brothers of America
Full text: Swami Vivekananda's 1893 Chicago speech

On Swami Vivekananda's 149th birth anniversary, here's the full text of his famous Chicago speech.

It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. l thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and I thank you in the name of the millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects. My thanks, also, to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honor of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration.I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to the southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation. I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings:
As the different streams having there sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to thee.
The present convent Which is one of the most august assemblies ever held, is in itself a vindication, a declaration to the world, of the wonderful doctrine preached in the Gita:
Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths which in the end lead to me.
Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization, and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now. But their time is come; and I fervently hope that the bell that tolled this morning in honor of this convention may be the death-knell of all fanaticism, of all persecutions with the sword or with the pen, and of all uncharitable feelings between persons wending their way to the same goal.

what is INSPIRATION ?

Inspiration means -

We all want to be inspired but what is inspiration exactly. What does inspiration mean

Inspiration means literally, " to breathe in and be filled with spirit of the gods The gods were the muses of ancient Greece. Greek myth explained that all creativity came from the gods and that mortals (that's us) can only receive somewhat imperfect copies of the originals.

The modern meaning of inspiration is a motivating action or influence that results in creative works and productivity of all kinds.

Writer and artists depend on inspiration and in an acknowledgment of the Greek origins of inspiration, they sometimes refer to someone who inspires them as a Muse. We gaze on our creations with amusement.

What inspires you in your life. How do you become innovative. That is the subject of this lens.
