Who are we….???? Maybe few people react as what’s this stupid question…??? Some may think as am I a fool or a dumb who doesn’t know who we are…??? Some may ignore it or another group of people will think of it as a psychological question by lifting their eyebrows up and say, goodbye to your question….??? But still, I’ll ask this same question…. who are we…???? For what purpose we are in this world…??? If there is any purpose, then, who will explain that purpose, because many people entered this world and left, but there is no purpose for us to be in this world, then why are we here…??? The whole world is divided into three parts –
MAN – who dominates one part of the world
WOMEN – one woman is another’s enemy and working women are dominating the housewives.
TRANSGENDER – still the struggle continues, for a better life, better respect, and feels ignored by others.
Among us, few become Engineers, Doctors, Lawyers, Scientists, Manufacturers while few stay at home and work or do businesses, finance, etc… I want to ask you all the people who showed this purpose to you.
I know as William Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage”, and we all are the artist who is playing their part of the job. Everyone is doing their work knowingly / unknowingly, willingly / unwillingly. Every person is an artist and born in this world with a very special quality. So, now, we got our answer, meaning, for what purpose we are in this world..??? So, We are all artists who are playing up their roles and then bidding goodbye to the world and will leave this world. But, now the question is, If we are an artist and everyone is born with a unique quality, then why do we people fight with our families, relatives, friends, unknown persons… We fight for religion, we do bad or hurt someone to achieve success, we dominate, discriminate against people on the basis of caste, community, religion…. We hurt others because of ego, jealousy, pride. Why do we believe that it is always better to be self happy than to make others happy..??? Many more questions may arise now, don’t mess up, let’s try to find a reply… Many times, we have seen a conversation, like, where one is asking the question and the second is giving the reply, between the God and the soul or the God and a human… but this time, the conversation will be between a human and the soul...
HUMAN: If all the bad or good things are done by me, then it would have been destroyed with my body, at the time of my death…. am I correct..??
SOUL: No, whatever you do, whether good or bad, everything will be calculated. This process is called “KARMA”. At the time of your death, only the body is destroyed, not the soul.
HUMAN: So, whatever good or bad things are done, it is done by the soul and not by the body..??? Then, why does the so-called “KARMA” suffer from the human body..???
SOUL: Soul doesn’t do any good or bad deeds. It is pure, eternal. All the goods and bads are done by humans.
SOUL: No matter how smart, talented, or clever a human is, unless he produces peaceful reforms through his feelings, the outer substance won’t give you minimal happiness. The soul should be filled with 12 feelings every day in life so that in any situation the human will not be sad and does not tie bad karma’s.
HUMAN: Even after the soul is filled with 12 feelings, the humans behave very badly like jealousy, ego, hurting, harming, killing, revengeful behavior, differentiating human from human, making boundaries, and etc…
SOUL: I totally agree with you… All the above said things happen and are done by humans, but not because of the feelings, but because of what we see, we learn…!!! When a new child is born, he/she doesn’t know his name or religion. He/she is like plain paper, and his family fills the paper as per their culture, sacraments.
HUMAN: So, all our deeds are because of our ambiance. But, we are the ones who earn money, resources and offer money, resources to God, so that he will be happy and in return give us prosperity, blessings and rinse off all the hurdles.
SOUL: About which money and resources are you talking…??? Did you see, any God took your offerings with him..? Even humans can’t take anything with themselves and you are talking about the offerings made to God…
HUMAN: Don’t talk as and how you wish…?? We, the humans, offer money in ways of diamonds, pearls, or gold jewelry/ornaments…
SOUL: But all this jewelry made of gold, diamonds, or pearls is not pure, immortal, or unused.
HUMAN: What do you mean..???
SOUL: I mean these things have already been used by someone or else it is like the leftover from the above things. For example, If I offer gold, it has already been used by the soil. If I offer Diamond, it has also been used by coal. In the same way for pearls, they have been used by the concha( shell)…
HUMAN: We even offer many resources to God like fruits, flowers, milk, sandalwood. They are so pure. These items have not been used by anyone.
SOUL: Do you know, from where the flowers and fruits are taken as an offering..??
HUMAN: Plants and trees..
SOUL: And who sits on plants and trees..??? Birds and bees… Then how flowers and fruits are unused. About milk, I can say, everyone knows milk is obtained from a cow, who has just delivered her baby. And you are all using that milk for God as an offering which is actually to be used by the calf. Then how milk is pure. Sandalwood also has been already used by snakes.
HUMAN: oohhh… So, whatever money or resources we are offering are of no use.
SOUL: I said, they all are not pure.
HUMAN: Then, what can I offer, my mind, my body…??
SOUL: Your body has already been used by your spouse and your mind has also been used by the attachment for kids, luxury, wealth, family, etc…. so they are also not pure.
HUMAN: Now I feel so poor. But wait, I have my religion, which is pure and eternal. I’ll offer my religion to God.
SOUL: Religion, Caste, Community a person gets according to his/her KARMA. The acts or the deeds done by humans designate the caste, community, and religion. So, if you offer religion to God, it is just like the leftover of your acts.
HUMAN: Ohh..!! All this time I thought that money and resources are those sources through which we can pamper God and in return, HE will bless me with prosperity, wealth, and happiness. But I was wrong. Wealth, resources can give happiness only to those for whom money, resources are the priority and not the relationship. Now, I feel so down that I can’t find a solution to this problem. What can I give as offerings to God?
SOUL: What can I say…??? I showed you the path, now you have selected your way and walked on it.
HUMAN: Ok, then, which is the most purest and eternal thing which I can offer to God. Is it you..??? Because you’re pure, eternal. Yes., you are the only element that is pure and eternal. I am so stupid, I searched here and there, in money, resources, for what can I offer to God, in order to pamper HIM and get, in return, happiness, prosperity, success, and blessings. But, the real happiness, prosperity is in us, the pure soul, which is in our body. If I’ll offer my soul to God, that is the best offering made to HIM by HIS devotee.

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
