The boy with the golden feet

HOROSCOPE/ ASTROLOGY:

The concept, ASTROLOGY, which I am writing in this article is slightly different from the other articles above. Why I chose this concept is because few customs related to astrology are very true.. I am not saying that everybody has to follow astrology, but few traditions are there in astrology that is related to human sentiments and emotions, and if we ignore we will definitely face difficulties in life.
The concept, PAAYA (CHARAN OR FEET), which is selected in the field of astrology, I’ll explain with an example. As we know there are many concepts in astrology itself like palmistry, numerology, kundali reading, horoscopes, and so many others. But the concept, PAAYA, which is selected is also a part of astrology but it relates to the newborn baby’s feet.
PAAYA: Paya is also called the feet of a child. Papaya is performed in two ways, one by seeing the position of the moon and the second is by seeing the nakshatra. In which house, the moon is placed from the ascendant is called Paaya of Rashi, and in which nakshatra, the Paaya is situated is called the Paaya of the nakshatra.
So, these are the two ways how the Paaya is performed. According to astrology, there are four Playas. Any person is born on any of these feet. The four Paayas are Gold, Silver, Copper, and Iron. Silver and Copper Paayas are very auspicious and fortunate and any person born with this Paaya proves to be lucky and auspicious not only for self but also for the family.
Gold and Iron Paaya are not very auspicious and people born with this Paaya face difficulty in their life.
Basically, it is said that, if a boy is born with golden Paaya, the whole family struggles with a lot of problems. If a boy is born with golden Paaya (feet), immediately after 27 days from his birth that has to be a yagna (a sacrifice), as a remedy.

A STORY OF HOROSCOPE AND A FAMILY:

The below is a true story of a boy, who was born with golden Paaya. Once, there was an average living family and the mother was expecting her first child. The couple was blessed with a baby boy and both of them were
very happy to have a baby. The baby was born at the beginning of the ninth month itself.
A BOY BORN WITH GOLDEN FEET: Since he was a premature baby, he was hospitalized in a different hospital departing from his mother and was kept under observation. After 10 days of hospitalization, the child then came back to his mother. When his dad went to the astrologer to prepare his horoscope, started preparing the horoscope for the child.
After a few minutes, the astrologer said, “your son is born with the golden Paaya..!”. You have to do some remedies, otherwise, your son and your family will face a lot of trouble. The couple behaved in a very modern way and said, Let it be.. we”ll see..!!!

MODERNITY SUCKS: The couple didn’t perform any yagna after 27 days of the childbirth and they both didn’t understand that this was a wrong decision, which they will regret in the future. The baby was loved immensely by his family and his relatives. As the baby was growing, the negativity also started peeping into the couple. The baby was loved immensely by his family and his relatives. As the baby was growing, the negativity also started peeping into the couple. The first thing the couple lost was their own house. From their own big house, they shifted to another small house, but the house was very small and from an urban area, they shifted to a rural area.
The second loss was her mother’s health started slowing down. Even after this, the couple didn’t believe in Paaya and they continued to live as how life was giving them the opportunities or the losses. The couple admitted their child to the school. The child was a really talented person.

BORN WITH INBUILT TALENT:

At a very small age, he used to do very good paintings. The brain was very sharp and whatever anyone teaches him, he will learn it very fastly. Even though being a talented person, again it turned into a loss for him because his mother was not able to wake up in the early morning and because of this, he used to miss school almost
every second day or probably four days a week.
As he was growing big, he was not regular to school, and the school’s principal used to complain frequently to his father. Even his father lost his job, lost his small house and they shifted to a rented house with only one bedroom. Every day their life was going down and every day was a new challenge with new difficulties.

DIFFICULTIES SURROUNDED THEM:

Now they don’t have sufficient money to survive, his mother suffered from Tuberculosis. Even after this many difficulties, the problems didn’t leave them. When the boy was 14, again another astrologer said, Still you haven’t
done the remedies of Golden Paaya..??? Now the parents are saying, we can’t afford a
yagna.
The position came down and down and down. The boy failed his 10th board examinations and after that, he started looking for a job. For five years, he was at home and after that wherever he goes for a job, maximum he will do it for three months and again come back and sit at home. Now, this is his life and his parent’s life and it is all because of a small mistake done by his parents by overlooking some customs.
IMPORTANT: Through this story, I am not encouraging anyone to believe in astrology or
horoscopes or their customs. But a few traditions are meant to overcome some difficulties.
So, this story is an example of how much modernity we or our lifestyle follows, but some
traditions are meant to give welfare to the newborn and his/her family.

THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER

These are on a series based popularly stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualize it, how much the technology has helped everyone’s day-to-day life, and whether these technical aspects are fruitful to us or not. 

GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION :

Once upon a time, there lived a shoemaker with his wife and they were very poor. Whatever the amount the shoe-maker got in return after selling the shoes, was the only source through which they got the food. The shoe-maker was very poor and on one fine day, he had only a little leather left out with which he could prepare only a
pair of shoes. So, the shoemaker decided to cut the leather and design the shoe in a very beautiful way to make it look like a beautiful pair of shoes. On the same day, a rich man came to the shoemaker and asked for a pair of shoes. The shoe-maker only had a single pair of shoes left with him and he showed it to the rich man.
Fortunately, the shoes fitted the man’s feet very nicely and he liked it so much that he gave him a good sum of money. With that money, the shoemaker brought enough leather to make two more pairs of shoes. On the day, the shoe-maker cut the designs of the shoes and kept them on the table. As he was so tired, he went to sleep.
He only cut the designs of the shoe but didn’t make it and during the nighttime, after he slept, something magical happened. When the shoe-maker got up the next day in the morning, he saw the shoes had already been made. He discussed this miracle with his wife, but neither of them understood how it happened. On the same day, a lady came and purchased both pairs of shoes and gave him a good sum of money.
The shoe-maker now brought enough leather to make four pairs of shoes and in the same way, he cut the designs and he kept it on the table, and went to sleep. To his surprise, when he woke up in the morning, he saw the shoes were made in a very wonderful way on the table. The wife of the shoe-maker was a bit surprised and even worried as to who did this last night ..?? Who came to our home..?? His wife came up with an idea that we will hide a full night behind the curtains and see who is coming to our house and making the shoes. Now, for this night, the shoe-maker as always cut the designs of the shoes and kept them on the table. The elves and the shoemaker hides.
He along with his wife hides behind the curtains to find the mystery. At midnight around, there came a group of tiny elves and they worked for the whole night and completed the making of the shoes. The elves were naked and seeing them the shoe-maker and his wife felt pity for them. The shoemaker’s wife made a few clothes, hats, and socks for
the tiny elves. On that night, they didn’t keep the cut leather for the shoes. Instead, they kept the prepared clothes, socks, and hats for the elves on the table. On that night, the elves came and were very happy to see the tiny clothes, hats, and socks for them. They cried they enjoyed, they wore the clothes and they even blessed the shoemaker’s family. From that day onwards, the elves didn’t come back but the blessing of those ELVES made the shoe-
maker, slowly a Richman.

GRANDMA’S DIGITAL VERSION:

In this digital version, I want to share a small story with you. Once, there was a man who prayed day and night just to meet the lord. After praying for so many years, one day God came into his dreams and said,  “I’ll visit you tomorrow..!!”. The man was very happy and excited too. He keeps on wondering as to how he will meet God,
what he will ask, what he will hear from Him and many more things were simply run into
his brain like a wave. The next day morning, he was ready with all the arrangements to meet God like for offerings, foods, clothes and so much. At the time, a beggar came to his house and asked for food. The man said, Hey! wait..!! Who are you and why you come here..?? I’m waiting here for my God. He said to me in my dreams that he will be visiting me today anytime. So, I’m waiting for Him. You just don’t come here, Go, Get Lost..!! The beggar went.
After a few hours pass away, a pregnant lady comes to this man and asks for food and help. The man shouts at the pregnant lady and says her to go away in the same way how he told to the beggar. After some time, a boy comes to this man asking for food and clothes and the man behaves in the same way how he treated the pregnant lady and the beggar. Then, the man again started praying to God and asks him, Why you didn’t come to meet me..?? You promised me..!! The God replied, “I came to you, Son, but you didn’t recognize me. Every time I visited you, you only insulted me..!! The man understood that the beggar, the pregnant lady, and the boy were the persons who visited him, was his God. But he didn’t realize Him. So the elves and the shoemaker story ends here.

GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE):

Always pray to the spirit and not to the statue because God can come to you in any disguise. It doesn’t matter to him how he should meet his devotees. The only thing which matters is to God is His HOLY devotees. This is the grandma’s illusion of the elves and the shoemaker.

ETHOS OF THE STORY: The ethos of the story is to help, share, care, motivate everyone because we don’t know who is the person, in which disguise, who is asking help from us. Always try to do good for others but don’t ever try to hurt others.

THE HUNGRY FOX

GRANDMA’S STORIES DIGITAL VISION:   

These are on a series based popularly stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualise it, that’s how much the technology has helped everyone’s day – to – day life, and the technical aspects are fruitful to us or not. This is a vision of the hungry fox.

Advertisement

 

GRANDMA’S OLDER VISION : Once upon a time, a fox was very hungry and he  was searching for food here and there in the forest. But can’t find anything properly to eat. Finally, the fox entered the Vineyard and saw bunches of grapes, hanging on the branches of the trees. The grapes hanging in bunches on the branches of the tree were very up. It was not possible for a fox to reach the grapes. But, because he was hungry he started trying hard to reach the grapes. The fox starts to jump to reach the grapes. It jumps again and again for many times but could not reach the grapes. Finally, the fox gets tired and says, the grapes are sour in taste and it runs away.

GRANDMA’S DIGITAL VISION : Now in the present situation, every person is very hungry of success and wants to reach the utmost place. Everybody’s searching for success, here and there in the world. But don’t have – a proper planning, a correct execution technique and the most important is, how to maintain the success. But they will enter this competitive world and start adoring all the successful persons who have already achieved success. The most important mistake which almost everyone commits is – first is, they will start comparing themselves with others and second is, almost every person will see only the success of a successful person, but no one will see his level of planning, organising and executing the plan, patience, his strength, activeness and the success story behind his success will not be even noticed. Success is hanging in bunches in different fields and projects as different branches of a tree. It is also hanging up as grapes on the tree. As how it wasn’t easy for the fox to reach grapes, it is not easy and possible for all humans to reach success faster and sooner. But, because humans really want to achieve it, they also start jumping again and again. Few people may find the success but others continue to try. By trying continuously in one single direction, then finally, those people get tired and thinks, the business idea as very sour and drop the idea of their business. This is the digitise version of the hungry fox

GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :

  1. The major mistake committed by every person is – comparison. With whom are we going to compare our self, say me..??? With a person who has already raised his standard of living by growing so many years in the business, or with a person, who is in same level as ours. If we compare our self with higher side, we feel inferior and if we compare with same colleague, then the growth will stop.  

 

  1. Let others do the comparison work, we should only focus on our work and everyday raise our efforts to achieve our goals. 

 

  1. Just like a fox, how it was jumping again and again to reach the grapes. In the same way, we should also always try again and again to reach our destination.. 

 

  1. If we are trying many times and not attaining the goal, then don’t think it as sour and leave the work, instead make few changes in our work and again start from the beginning.   

 

  1. Positive visionary towards the goals will give you good results. Always remember one thing, you are hiding one unique talent in you, just bring it out, scream  loudly and stamp your signature.

 

MORAL OF THE STORY : The moral of the story is – it is always easy to give up or despise, but the real strength is built up when we fight for it until we succeed in our goals. So, never give up, instead we can find different ways or techniques to reach our motive. Start your day with new positive vibes and new ideas to achieve the target, instead of changing your goals everyday.

These are on a series based on popular stories of grandma, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualize, how much the technology has helped everyone’s day-to-day life, and whether these technical aspects are fruitful to us or not.

BIRBAL’S KHICHDI –

AKBAR AND BIRBAL ..!!

GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION:

We all know about Akbar and Birbal. Akbar and Birbal are one of the most repeated names in the stories.

Advertisement

Birbal is one of the most intelligent gems in Akbar’s kingdom. Akbar always used to get suggestions from Birbal relating to any state affairs.

Once, on a cold winter night, Akbar and Birbal were walking near a lake. Akbar touched the water by putting his finger in the freezing water and immediately took it out and said to Birbal, “I don’t think anybody can survive in this water for a night..??” It’s very cold.

Advertisement

Akbar then says to Birbal, I want to see, can anybody survive in this water for one night..?? He added, if anyone will stay in the water for the whole night and survive, then, I’ll pay a reward of 1000 gold coins. The next day, BIRBAL makes the announcement in the village as whoever will stay in this freezing water for one night will be rewarded by the King with

1000 gold coins.

Advertisement

Soon, a poor man was ready to take on the challenge of standing in the freezing water for the whole night. The poor man was guarded by two royal guards and he stood the whole night in the freezing water. The next morning, the guards took the poor man to the court to receive his reward.

The king asked the poor man, how did you stay the whole night in that chilled water..?? He said, Your Highness..!! I looked at a lamp that was burning at a distance and spent the night. On hearing this from the man, the Emperor got very angry and said, you are not eligible to receive this reward as you manage to stand in the cold freezing water because of the warmth from the lamp.

Advertisement

The Poorman was heartbroken and went to BIRBAL for help. After hearing this from the poor man, BIRBAL decided to teach the lesson of HOPE to the King in his technical way.

The next day, Birbal didn’t go to the court. Akbar waited for a while but still when BIRBAL didn’t

come to the court, He visited BIRBAL to find the reason.

When the king visited BIRBAL, to His amusement, He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Birbal was sitting beside the fire with a pot hanging almost 6 feet above. When Akbar asked Birbal, what is this..?? Birbal replied, “your highness.!! I Am cooking KHICHDI“. Akbar started laughing and said, how can you cook khichdi in this way, this is totally impossible.

Advertisement

Birbal replied, “It is possible, my Lord..!!”. Akbar said to BIRBAL to explain it. Birbal replies, if a poor man can stay warm by looking at a burning lamp from a distance, then I can cook khichdi in the same way. Akbar understood the point of Birbal. He called the Poorman and rewarded him with 1000 gold coins for completing the challenge. Birbal said if we have hope, we get the inspiration to do any hard work.

GRANDMA’S DIGITISE VERSION: Grandma explains, “what is hope..?” On one hand, a family is living their life – no one is interested in caring, sharing, worrying, discussing, expressing, all are involved in their own work and don’t even think about those people who are living with them.

Advertisement

On the other side, a family is living – expressing everyone their pains, love, sorrow, care, worrying about everyone, discussing each in every decision, and most importantly respecting each other, no matter whether a person is big or small. So which family do you want..?? If you want the first family, then they are just surviving and if you choose the second one, then, whatever you want will come only because of hope.

GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :

1. Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. In short, a feeling of trust in others. The desire in you will give you a different expectancy to live life.

Advertisement

2. When Akbar was hoping that if anybody could stand in this lake for a night, He didn’t have to believe in it because He can’t do it by himself. Since the hope was without trust it became a challenge. When a poor man was able to stand for the whole night in the lake, Akbar was not able to believe it because it was not a feeling of trust but it was a challenge.

ETHOS OF THE STORY: The moral of the story says, Hope will start with a feeling of

Advertisement

expectation, desire, and trust, and these, in return will inspire you to do any kind of hard work.

How we say as –

“Where there is a will, there is a way”.

In the same way,

“Where there is a HOPE, there is an INSPIRATION”

TITLE : THE GOOSE AND THE GOLDEN EGGS

GRANDMA’S STORIES DIGITAL VISION:

These are on a series based popularily stories of grandma’s, which will be added with today’s digital version, so as to visualise it, how much the technology has helped everyone’s daily life, and whether these technical aspects are useful to us or not.

THE GOOSE THAT LAID GOLDEN EGGS

GRANDMA’S OLDER VERSION :

Once upon a time in a village, there lived a farmer with his wife. They were very poor and had no kids, but a small little farm. The only way for their survival was to grow a few vegetables in the farm and sell it in the market and earn money.

Advertisement

Once, eventually, the farmer was able to save sufficient money and with that money he brought a goose to his house. He took the goose and made a nest for her to lay eggs. When the farmer went the next day to the goose to gather some eggs for his breakfast and to sell the remaining in the market, to his surprise the goose laid a golden egg. He tried to sell the goose and the golden eggs.

The farmer was very much surprised by seeing the golden egg. Everyday, the goose was laying a golden egg and soon the farmer and his wife became rich. One day, the farmer thought that everyday the goose is laying one golden egg. why don’t we cut her stomach and get all the golden eggs at a time and become rich..??

Advertisement

The seed of greed originated in the farmer’s brain. So, he went to the goose silently, picked him in his hand and cut the goose with the knife, which they were hiding from the goose. The couple cut the goose and opened it to find out how many golden eggs were inside her.

The goose was like any other goose and had no golden eggs inside of her at all. Now, the farmer realised that his greediness pays him back by losing the goose which laid a golden egg everyday. the goose and the Golden Eggs will never come back. The couple finally realised that they had lost the goose and now they will never be able to see the golden egg ever again in their life.

Advertisement

GRANDMA’S DIGITISE VERSION:

In this story, Grandma compares the farmer as a common man, the golden egg as the money and killing the goose to become rich to scam. Now-a-days, we can see there are many scams happening by prey upon the common man.

In the name of scams, many common man’s are getting robbed because the scammers give them greed in the form of a golden egg. The scammers will convince you as to how your money will get doubled fast if you invest, they cheat you in the name of lottery prizes and one of the biggest scam which Grandma feels in today’s life is the chain business.

Advertisement

In the name of business, they will convince you to invest money and then they will tell you to join others under you as your team. In all these ways, only a few those who have started up the business and those who have joined this business in the early level will be benefited.

But others are all going to lose their money. So, this is how the scammers greed the common man that every day they are benefitted from this business just like receiving a golden egg, but when the greed increases more (i.e) when people increase more, the goose is being cut down by the knife and nothing is there in her stomach.

Advertisement

In the same way, when many people join the business and investment increases, then, all the people are being cut down and this is how a scam happens. The Goose and the golden eggs are the perfect example for it.

GRANDMA’S ALLUSION (NUSKE) :

1. It doesn’t mean that all the chain businesses are a scam. The first thing which a person has to see while joining a business is whether they are giving you greed or utilising your potential. There are many chain businesses which don’t ask you to invest, but still you will be benefited there, only by putting your efforts, working hard and showing your potential.

Advertisement

2. Don’t become greedy by seeing others money, because that is the reason where people will cheat you by showing the greed of a golden egg and this results in all your potential will never be noticed, utilised and it will go in vain. Just how the farmer became greedy about the goose and the golden eggs.

3. Believe in your potential, work hard, stay focused, put your efforts to the extreme and raise your standards. Don’t allow a scammer to make a scam by robbing or cheating you. Raise your standards to another extreme level where greed of a single golden egg will not manipulate your mind.

Advertisement

ETHOS OF THE STORY :

The moral of the story is, “Be happy with what you have, otherwise you will have to face the consequences”. If you want to bring a growth in your life, in your living standards, you have to stay focused on your work, or else, there are many scams to manipulate your mind and bring down to you on the zero level.
