We make mistakes, we see others making mistakes and we even hear from others about so many mistakes… But who is the CULPRIT…??? In this article, I am going to describe 3 – 4 mistakes which have been made at different places and by different peoples… but, the problem is who will be the culprit to whom the punishment is to be given and how we can identify him..???? So, let’s start the journey of puzzles…
A KING AND HIS HAPPY MEAL PLAN:
Once, there lived a KING, who was very spiritual. After earning a huge profit from another Kingdom, the King was very happy and he wanted to plan meals for many Brahmins. He even says to His minister to invite as many Brahmins as he could, in and around His kingdom, for the meal. The invitation was sent to many Brahmins to attend the meal, and also to grace the Kingdom. The invitation has been sent to many Brahmins for the meal and by God’s grace, many Brahmins attended the occasion. But when the meal was being offered to the Brahmins and firstly, it started with pudding. When they started eating the pudding, all of a sudden, all the Brahmins died. How it happened, because of whom it happened, and does anybody do this purposefully….???? Nothing was known…????
A SNAKE AND AN EAGLE :
Everybody in this world needs food to survive. The food can be in any form either solid or liquid. Few eat vegetarian food while few eat non-veg food. This is what the story is all about. An Eagle, in search of food, flies here and there. Suddenly, it sees a snake and
without wasting the time, the Eagle holds the snake tightly in its mouth. It wants to eat the snake. So it takes the snake to another place. It was holding the snake tightly in its mouth and the eagle was flying high in the sky. The snake, on the other side, wanted to escape from the Eagle, so it spitted the poison out of its mouth. But, unfortunately, the poison comes down and it drops in the pudding without anyone’s knowledge. Now, what will happen… if anyone will eat that pudding, they will die…
A CONFECTIONER AND THE PUDDING:
One day, a group of cooks and the confectioners were preparing food for an event. All the cooks and the confectioners were busy with their work. When the food was totally ready and it was being served, all the people who ate the food died. The head chef has been
called to check who has committed the mistake, what has been mixed up with the food and it
is whose irresponsibility that so many people died.
TWO BRAHMINS AND A LADY :
One day, two brahmins were passing through a Kingdom and since it was mid-afternoon time, the brahmins were feeling hungry. A group of ladies was passing. The two brahmins ask the ladies, we are very hungry, will anyone offer the food to us or can we go to
the King, will he offer us the meal.???? At the time, one of the ladies said, Please! don’t go to the king and ask for the food. A few days back, a very grand occasion happened and many brahmins were called for meals. All the brahmins who had the food died. Still, now, no one knows why all the brahmins died. So please, don’t go to the palace and ask for the food. Who knows what may happen with you two…???? The brahmins got scared and went away from the kingdom without having the food.
Did anyone understand the story or what I am going to speak about the moral of the story, is understood…?? No… I told you one story in four different parts. Now, let’s club the story and find out the moral of the story. But before that, two more characters I have to add –
the Yamraj (King of death) and his assistant Chitragupta.
STORY: Once, there lived a KING, who was very spiritual. After earning a huge profit from another Kingdom, the King wanted to plan meals for the Brahmins. He even says to His minister to invite as many Brahmins as he could, in and around His kingdom, for the meal. The invitation was sent to many Brahmins to attend the meal. By God’s grace, many Brahmins attended the occasion. A group of cooks and the confectioners were called to prepare the food for the event. All the cooks and the confectioners started preparing the food which made them busy with their work. One of the confectioners was preparing the pudding for the meal. And suddenly, an Eagle holding a snake tightly in its mouth was passing through that place, where the cook was preparing the pudding. The snake wanted to escape from the Eagle, so it spitted the poison out of its mouth. But, unfortunately, the poison comes down and it drops in the pudding without anyone’s knowledge. The food was totally ready. Firstly, the meal started with pudding. When they started eating the pudding, all of a sudden, all the Brahmins died.
Few days passed. One day, two brahmins were passing through a Kingdom and since it was mid-afternoon time, the brahmins were feeling hungry. A group of ladies was passing. The two brahmins ask the ladies, we are very hungry, will anyone offer the food to
us or can we go to the King, will he offer us the meal.???? At the time, one of the ladies said, Please! don’t go to the king and ask for the food. A few days back, a very grand occasion happened and many brahmins were called for meals. All the brahmins who had the food
died. Still, now, no one knows why all the brahmins died. So please, don’t go to the palace and ask for the food. Who knows what may happen with you two…???? The brahmins got scared and went away from the kingdom without having the food.
So now, we all understood the story,
Who is the culprit…????
– the King, who wanted to celebrate his happiness
– the Eagle, who was hungry
– the snake, who released the poison for self-defense
– the confectioners, who made the pudding and who was unaware that the snake had spilled the venom from above
– the lady, who without any knowledge made a statement about the king and manipulated the Brahmins
Who is the culprit..?? Yamraj and his assistant are also confused. But in somebody’s account, the whole sin is to be entered as so many brahmins died. But to whom should we blame..?? After a few days, when the lady made the statement about the King without her knowledge, Yamraj got the CULPRIT.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
The main motive of the author to tell the story was that, in this story, everybody is doing their own work and everyone is unaware of the thing which went wrong. But, who is that lady to decide the culprit, being unaware about the whole situation..?? In the same way, in real life too, if we don’t know anything about the situation, we should not comment or make any statements or else we may also become the culprits. In the end, I want to ask this question to all of you, “if you are the Yamraaj, to whom you will select the culprit..??”

HOW LIFE WITHOUT ENTERTAINMENT WOULD BE
LIFE WITHOUT ENTERTAINMENT
We all have wondered what life would be like without gadgets or wealth,( life without entertainment) but have you ever considered what life without entertainment ?. Probably, it would be as boring as watching a dry painting. I guess you won’t ever know if you never had a time in life without entertainment.
If we would ever imagined your life without entertainment, that means we don’t have cell phones but just traditional phones. Present day’s cell phones have become the main source of entertainment since the 2000’s. As a daily habit, even a teenager is using a cell phone and social media apps like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and many more to fill their free time. Without these , teenagers would’ve been freaked out and become miserable without such sources of fun from technology. And without these cell phones , MP3 players, laptops, headphones, books, TVs or even VRs would not exist.
If we do not have these technology, we would not know how to spend our leisure time. If we live without entertainment, we would be able to go to amusement parks or circus and also to book stores, have tours at the beach, and can never have parties, which can lead to a very dull life.

DEJA VU – A STRANGE EXPERIENCE
Sometimes, we feel like we experience Deja Vu. But what is Deja vu ?
Why do we feel like that ?
What is the science behind this experience ?
Deja Vu derives from a French word which means “already seen”. It is a feeling that one has experienced the present situation before. Scientific researches say that it is a strong memory recollection, the time, the place and the context of that previous situation. People who travel frequently or watch films are more likely to experience deja vu when compared to others. Others experience deja vu in fragile conditions and high pressure. Meanwhile, deja vu decreases with age.
TYPES AND SCIENTIFIC REASONS
Two types of Deja Vu are considered
1) Pathological Deja Vu
Pathological Deja Vu occurs frequently and also has symptoms like hallucinations which may be an indicator of psychological or neurological stress.
2) Non-Pathological Deja Vu
Normal people who do not have any mental health issues experience this type of Deja Vu. This is so common and it is not due to stress. This occurs because of recollecting old memories.
Deja Vu is simply an electric discharge in brain , creating a strong sensation of an event that has happened before. Deja Vu is associated with Migraines and as well as temporal lobe epilepsy. Researchers also found link between deja vu and certain mental health issues like anxiety, dissociative identity disorder and schizophrenia. But scientists failed to find the correlations between deja vu and schizophrenia.
Researchers also experimented genetics while considering deja vu. But there is not even a single gene connected to deja vu.

HAITI AND MUD COOKIES
TITLE – HAITI AND MUD COOKIES
TODAY’S REALITY :
If I ask, what are the basic resources which we need to survive in today’s world..?? The reply will be MONEY and FOOD. That’s true… When we are hungry and if we have money in our hand, we go out to buy our favourite food stuff like pizza, burger, french fries, noodles, pastries, cookies etc… to feed our tummy.
PARALLEL LIVING – WITHOUT RESOURCES :
But do you know, there are many people who don’t have these basic resources too for living, then, how will they feed their tummy..??? There are few countries, where people don’t have even the basic resources like food and money. Then how will they be feeding their tummy…???
LIFE OF HAITIANS :
HAITI, one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere, don’t even have the basic resources for their everyday life and due to the scarcity of food and money, in the country, people started feeding their tummy with the DIRT.
MUD COOKIES IN HAITI :
People in HAITI are eating dirt in the form of cookies, which are also called “MUD COOKIES ”, Galette or bonbon tè.. The scarcity of food has turned mud into cookies, for the Haitians.
MUD AS A SUPPLEMENT :
It is believed that, due to the mineral content in the mud, the cookies were given as a dietary supplement to pregnant women and children. The Haitian’s believed that the mud has calcium in it which can be used as antacid and also for nutrition too.
MUD COOKIES AND HAITI :
In Haiti, almost 80% of the population is below the poverty line. This made the starving locals desperate for food and created cookies from mud for their survival. Sadly speaking, the people of Haiti are regularly eating these cookies and they are now so used to these cookies that it has become a normal practice for them.
HOW THIS MUD COOKIES ARE MADE..??
The main ingredients in making these cookies are edible clay, salt and vegetable shortening. Edible clay is collected from the nation’s central plateau and is moved to the market in trucks. The women who prepare the cookies, purchase the mud from the market and take it to the towns to make it.
Firstly, the dirt is strained to remove the clumps and rocks. Then, the strained edible clay or dirt is mixed up with salt and vegetable shortening or fat to form flat discs. These discs are left out in the sun to bake. Then, finally the discs, which turn into cookies, are then sold in the market.
These cookies are made in different quantities, as per the affordability of the people. The taste of these cookies are described as a smooth consistency that immediately dries the mouth with a pungent aftertaste of dirt having lingered for hours.
IS EATING EDIBLE CLAY OR SOIL, HEALTHY..??
Truly speaking, mud has no nutritional value. But the people of Haiti have no alternative to overcome the food scarcity and high prices. They are forced to create these cookies and eat them.
Haitians believe that the mud contains calcium but it is strongly disputed by the doctors who warn of tooth decay, constipation and even more worse issues or problems in health. Dirt also contains a lot of potassium which leads to high blood potassium, which increases the risk of cardiac arrest.
Eating dirt can also expose you to bacteria, toxic heavy metals and parasites. Haiti is also facing some mortality issues like respiratory infections, tuberculosis, diarrhoea and eating dirt will worsen the situation.
Even the immune system is getting weak from people eating mud. The water supply in Haiti is often contaminated. Sadly, this contaminated water is making its way in the soil and as well as for the people who are drinking it, which makes the people much more sicker than they already are.
On a serious note, the people of the country need to do all they can to help themselves
