Essay on responsibilities of a good citizen

Essay on Responsibilities of a Good Citizen

Citizen is a term widely understood and used for a person who lives in any country and holding a specific identification number. That number shows that this person is belonging to this country or that country. This is a general definition of a citizen, but I was thinking something else. See, now the world is changing and this world has now become a global village, it is very easy for anyone to see or have a conversation with any person of any community of any country!

The citizen is a global citizen now, identification numbers are just one identity, one number of recognition, but when it comes to communication, humane grounds, taking care of each other then it demands a high level of patience, tolerance and open mindset to cater each other in a befitting manner. What we all need to do is to minimize the threats of racism, caste, creed and sense of superiority. The game of putting others down should be curtailed to eradication level. Being a global citizen, it is our duty to:

  1. Remain polite towards others, let us listen to the problems of others.
  2. Don’t be judgmental for it kills humanity at large. Let us think before we come to a conclusion and pass comments on others! This other could be your family member, friend, or any bypasser.
  3. Extend a helping hand towards the ones who are in need, by need I do not mean the financial need, sometimes people just need a sympathetic ear to listen to their issues and many times they are not in need of any solution, they just want to vent out the pressure they kept inside them, God knows for how long!
  4. Do interrupt whenever any insane, stupid, and mean thing comes in your radius, it could be insulting behavior, offensive comment on any social media platform or in our daily life routines, wherever you see the evil, try to nip the evil in the bud. We should be torch-bearer of positivity and goodness and not of negative or becoming a bee who chooses to sit only on garbage, be a honeybee, reach out to flowers, take nectar and turn them into honey. In short, make yourself beneficial for humanity all in sundry.

It is an Indian famous religious festival celebrated each year. This festival lasts for five to six days. It usually starts after Mahalaya the lunar month in the city of Bengal because it is the majority of the festival of the Bengali community that is residing in India. This festival is marked with colors, people get themselves dressed in colorful clothes, specifically in their traditional style of clothing. After that, they gather at pandals to offer their prayers to the goddess Durga Devi. It is quite prevalent in the Bengali community that the goddess Kali has been originated or appeared from Durga’s head slew Mahisasura’s evils cohorts. Another festival known as Navratri is in line with is Pooja because that festival is also dedicated to Durga Devi, but it is nine days long festival. Both festivals coincide in quite a similar way. Each day of these five or nine days festivity is marked with the sole dedication of each day. Following are the things to don according to the Durga Pooja calendar:

Day 1: Panchami, Kartik, Bilva Nimantran, Kalparambha, Akal Bodhon, amantran and Adhivas.

Day 5: Nabami, Kartik, Bengal Maha Navami, Vijayadashami.

Day 6: Dashami, Kartik, Durga Visarjan, Bengal Vijayadashami, Sindoor Utsav.

The religious festival is of utmost importance in Indian mythology because it celebrates the victory of Durga Devi over the evil Mahishasura who was the king of demons. The first day is celebrated as a welcome to the mighty goddess to home and the last or on the sixth day which is known as Sasthi, the worships and actual celebrations get their start.

In India it is celebrated each year with the same pomp and religious fervor. The day is marked with deep love, affection and devotion to Durga devi for keeping them safe from the demons of the king of demons the Mahishaura. It is their day of respect for this devi who saved their future which otherwise could be bleak and unsafe.

Essay on Raksha Bandhan

Essay on Raksha Bandhan

India is immensely surrounded by different cultures and flaunts a variety of festivals. One of the many festivals is Raksha Bandhan which means Protection bond. This is a festival or an event that is celebrated to glue the bond of brother and sister. In this festival, a ritual of tying a thread is done by the sister or sisters to the brother or brothers. The purpose behind this ritual is to remind siblings that no matter what the circumstances go by, you will never ever leave each other side in thin or thick!

Hindu religion is strongly and tightly knit around mythology, so according to mythologies,  during Mahabarat event of chains, princess Draupadi tore piece of her saree and tie on  lord Karishna’s finger, when accidently he nicked his finger, Lord Karishna was so touched with this act that he swore to take care and protect her no matter how hard the circumstances would be.

In remembarance of this event, the event is celebrated on each year on the full moon in the month of Shravan (a Hindu month). The special thing about this ritual is that it cannot be celebrated on any day or time of the month, it has special timing which is pronounced as ‘muhrat’, last year it was between 9:28 am to 9:17 pm in the night.

After tying the Rakhi, the sister applies a tilak to the brother’s forehead. Nowadays, Rakhi could be tied to the eldest sister, in case of the absence of a brother in the family followed by an exchange of gifts at both sides for at least that one day. Earlier it was just a common thread that suffices the need for the Rakhi, but now many different and stylish bands of rakhi are available in the market. New era, new customs! Hail the Rakhi Bandhan! Raksha Bandhan also has another word that is Bhai dooj, in which a knot can e tied to a male who is not a brother by blood, but a brother by religion or care-based. One such example was given in the famous movie of Indian industry named Praim, Ratun Dhunpaiyo.

India the largest known secular country in the world. Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zoroaster, and a number of other people who are different in religion, culture, traditions, and languages are inhabited in this country. According to one study India caters to 33 different sects and religions that are practiced in this vast country named India! The Hindu community is what makes up the largest population of the country. Hindus are the majority in number so likewise the number of festivals is bigger and outnumber the other people and religious, cultural, and seasonal festivals. Indian festivals are many in numbers like Diwali, celebrated by all Indians irrespective of religion and language, it is celebrated in the autumn season. Next in the chain is Holi, which is celebrated in the spring season, Dussehra is a nine-day-old festival claiming victory of Ram over Ravana the evil.

There are many other known festivals, but the purpose of all these festivals is to create harmony and peace amongst different people and nations. Being a liberal country means knitting all the religions and making the different nations feel at home in order to promote the idea of unification and brotherhood.

How can we spend Holi festival in unique way?

Holi is a festival known to be linked with Indians, the Hindu community especially. It is celebrated in the season of spring, usually in March. It is marked with colours, dance, music, food and other related rituals. The powder is known as ‘gulal’ translated as coloured powder which they throw on each other or rub on the cheeks as a symbol of love and happiness. This tradition is times old and no newness is made in it. From ages, its been celebrated in the same way, wearing white dresses, decorating the plates with gulal powder, gathering in any open area, place or in streets, waving a handful of powder on one another or it can be rubbed on the cheek of the other person unknowingly, the festival is then prolonged on with traditional dances, or any other fun-to-do dance, singing of the famous songs and having done with the festivity, the day is ended with a sumptuous sight of food which is eaten by all. A happy day comes to an end!

The question that comes to my mind is that when new trends are followed in foods, dance, folk lore, music, dresses why not in celebrating the festivals? Why festivals are always linked with pomp and show and littered with loud music and hefty dances? Why not celebrating Holi in a new way? What you say? Agreed? Let’s begin now! Holi in a new bent… following tips/ways can be utilized as per choice:

  1. Instead of powder plate, try some seasonal flowers, arrange some carnival focusing on educating the children with the wild and exotic flowers grown in the spring season. It would be fun with learning for the young generation.
  2. Invite the needy or poor to the food table especially arranged for them, each house will dish out one dish onto that table, it will be pocket friendly and could be a free buffet for the deserving ones.

Arrange a sale on your old white clothes or give one free of cost to whom he or she likes to. Try it and you will love the new face of Holi.

Reducing Carbon Footprints:

 What is a carbon footprint? Ever heard about this term? No? Well, it is as simple as a shiny sun. Yes! It is all about fuel consumption. By carbon, we mean a hot gas that causes the temperature of the earth to rise. By footprints, we mean the effects, the trails of carbon that has on the earth. Earth herself is not causing the increase in the carbon footprints via natural disasters or ecological changes. We, human beings are responsible for its rise in the ecosystem, of which we are an integral part.

           Human beings are great thinkers, but always oblivious of the consequences of the activities they are indulged in! There are number of human activities that are very dear and beloved to them, but on the other hand, taking the planet earth into a perilous state. Few activities of such types are listed below:

BBQ:

          In winters, no one has the courage to avoid it. We all love the smoky aroma and spicy tasty of the hot sizzling chicken piece or mutton or beef piece. Apart of the cleanliness or halal haram concepts, the very ingredient on which the specific piece of meat is cooked on is a black coal. The coal is a house of carbon dioxide gas. Now, imagine the amount of smoke erupting from each BBQ tray. The each and every strand of smoke is piled up with carbon dioxide, contributing to the wellness of the atmosphere in which we all are breathing in and breathing out, and in breathing out, getting our carbon dioxide out too!

 Long Drive:

                     What a lovely weather! Oh! We got a weekend break! We aren’t gone anywhere since long! Let’s have fun! Let’s move out! These are few dear sentences that we all utter in different situations listed above. We all have cars, if not, we have Uber or Cream at our disposal. All the vehicles run on fuels, as we all know. The fuels arew loaded with carbon dioxide. In 1 liter of petrol, 2.5 kg of carbon dioxide is released. Multiply the liter with the release amount and then multiply it with your yearly consumption of petrol only! The results will be horrifying!

 Gas/ Electrical heaters:

                            We are too cold! Switch on the heater or the inverter. Water is too cold, switch on geyser! These are the usual habits of all of us. Again the amount of carbon dioxide is adding up in the already existing abundance of this dangerous gas.

Ways to reduce carbon footprints:

There are number of ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprints. Few are listed below:Reduce the cutting of tress/forests

Use public transport instead of private cars

Use cycle or prefer to walk to cover nearby distances

Wear warm/wool clothes instead of switching on gas/electric heaters/ inverters, too often

Make BBQ in pressure cooker (search for relevant recipes) and after its cooking, give it a smoke of 1-3 coals to give it a taste of specific BBQ.

Grow trees, whenever, wherever you like to.
