How then can we overcome this major problem of negative thoughts in our mind? A thought is only a thought. It is our reaction to the thought that causes stress. And when we keep brooding over the same thought again and again, it takes root within us. With regular brooding, it grows stronger and a day comes when it is so thick, that it shades out all the sunshine and joy of our life. We find it extremely hard to uproot such negativity from our minds as it has taken deep roots in our system. If we want to overcome such negative thoughts, we must stop feeding them with attention and energy. We must start neglecting them and letting go of them. We must stop reacting to them as soon as they try to take root in our mind. The following story illustrates this truth:
A seeker went to a Guru to clear a doubt. He was aware that it was necessary to have thought control in order to meditate and overcome the vices of mind. Else it was difficult to focus on God and attain self realization He asked the Guru: Is it true that we should try to control our thoughts? The Guru did not give him a direct answer. He picked up a seed and handed it over to the seeker and asked him to plant it. So the young man planted the seed and hoped to get the answer as he covered the seed with soil. But no light flashed and no truth was revealed to him.
The seeker waited for many months for the Guru to give him the answer. Again he asked the same question. And again the Guru picked up a seed and gave it to him and asked him to plant it. The seeker was irritated but kept quiet. He went and planted the seed in a spot next to the first one. Then he spent several months trying to understand the significance of the first seed and second seed. But he was no wiser.
Again after a few months, he went to the Guru with the question burning in his mind. Before he asked anything, the Guru handed him another seed and the seeker went away fuming and planted it near the second seed. He tried very hard to understand the hidden meaning of the Guru’s actions but could not understand a thing. He had no choice. So he went to the Guru again. He was determined to get the answer from the Guru, even if he had to shake it out of him. As he entered, the Guru smiled at him with great love. His anger vanished and with great humility he said: O Master, it is the same question but do not throw any more seeds at me to plant. Please explain to me the meaning of your actions and how to control our thoughts.
The Guru took him for a walk. The last seed had sprouted into a tiny shoot. The seeker was asked to pull it out. He could do it easily. The second seed had grown into a small plant. Once again the seeker was asked to uproot it which he could after putting in some efforts. The first seed had grown into a tree with branches. It was not possible for the seeker to pull it out. The Guru explained: Thoughts are like seeds. When they are freshly planted in mind, they can be easily removed by will. When we hold the thoughts in our mind for some time, they are a little more difficult to dislodge. When we water them with resentment or longing for a long time, they grow into big trees and cannot be pulled out. We must hold on only to thoughts that give us peace of mind and let go of thoughts which make us angry, resentful or vengeful. Thoughts lead to action. Repeated actions become a habit, and habits form a character. A character determines our destiny. We must not make our minds a fertile ground for breeding painful thoughts.
Regular practice of SitaRam Mantra and meditation and following the teachings of the Guru will help us to let go of painful thoughts and clear our minds. Let us plant the seed of SitaRam in our minds and water it daily with love and surrender. As it grows, its shade will protect us from all the harshness of life.

This is the report regarding our visit to the post office. I have penned down my experience in that heart absorbing session.
OUR VISIT TO THE POST OFFICE
It was a very enthralling experience for the students of DAV DWARKA to visit the post office situated at SECTOR-6 DDA MARKET ,DWARKA.
This visit was organised under the' DIGITAL INDIA CAMPAIGN' an initiative taken by our honourable prime minister SH.NARENDRA MODI. The visit aimed at building a digitally empowered society.
At the post office, we got an opportunity to have a direct dialogue with Mr. AJIT KUMAR- THE POSTMASTER who gave us the detailed information about the working of the post office. He further told us about the advantages of incorporating technology in the post office. He even told us about the use of printing machine which has reduced the expenditure of the post office to a large extent.Use of technology in the management has made the functioning of the post office easy and more organised.
He further highlighted various schemes like KISAN VIKAS PATRA, SENIOR CITIZEN SCHEMES, SUKANYA SAMRIDDHI YOJANA(SSY) etc.which are beneficial to different sections of the society.
We were delighted when we were shown some stamps valued from Rs.20 to Rs.120.He also showed us many different envelopes and postcards that we saw for the very first time in our life.
It was indeed a beneficial and an enriching experience for all of us to get an overview of the working of such department and were very happy to get the opportunity to know about its functioning and how it is spreading happiness,emotions through a letter.

The superstar Akshay Kumar is busy shooting in Romania for one of his most anticipated film, Singh is Bliing which is all set to release this year.
A source close to the production team says,” A specific outfit was designed for Akshay sir for the climax scene. But due to the unexpected incident, the suit was torn and ripped off and the crew had to look out for an expert tailor who could stitch his specially made tailored suit.”
And well, any guesses who came to Akshay’s rescue?
“A local Romanian grandmother helped Akshay and showed her impeccable sewing skills and impressed Akshay sir in no time,” added the source.
Well, looks like the Romanians have left no stone un turned to provide Akshay with good hospitality and warmth!!

It is possible to respect and revere all creation as God and as part of ourselves only when we experience the divinity within us and see it radiating throughout the Universe. This is the main goal of human existence. To arrive at this point, we need to learn to respect all creation at the basic level – that all creation has feelings like us and just like we do not like to be disrespected or hurt or insulted, we should also not disrespect, hurt or insult any part of creation. We should accord the same honour and respect to all that we seek for ourselves.
We are taught by our parents and elders at a young age to speak politely and give respect to all. From very young age we are taught to listen to others and understand and then reply politely. Respect through actions, respect through speech and later on respect at even thought levels are taught to us. When we give respect to others we receive respect. Many would argue that some persons are not worthy of being given respect. So why respect them and receive insults and disrespect in return? We should give respect as the light of Divinity is present in all creation and the same light is within us. We should give respect as it is our standard of behaviour and character and it does not depend on the behaviour or character of another person or thing.
All religions teach their followers to respect each other and all life forms. If this very simple rule is followed, there would be less hatred, hostility, need for vengeance and warfare between people and nations. Merely making a statement is not enough. Respecting all life should be taught through practical daily rules. Hinduism teaches respecting all life and creation in various ways. The Sun, Moon, Wind, Water, Fire and Earth are designated as Gods. We are taught to respect and revere these forms and use them wisely. Various trees and plants such as Pipal tree, Tulsi plant, etc., are worshipped. This is to teach that plants are sacred and must be taken care of. All flowers, fruits, vegetables, grains, grass, cereals and pulses are offered as naivedya or offering to God. Hence they are respected. Many animals and birds are placed alongside Gods as their vehicles and hence worshipped – eg – mouse for Lord Ganesh, bull for Lord Shiva, swan for Mother Saraswati, owl for Mother Laxmi, the tiger and lion for Mother Parvati, the Serpent for Kundalini Shakti etc. Hence we are taught to respect and worship all birds and animals. The worship rites including invoking God within self before start of worship and it is drummed into us that divinity is within us and must be invoked and we should rise higher to our real noble nature. The cow which gives us milk and nurtures us is a gentle creature and is seen as abode of Divinity. When we wake up in the morning, we invoke Devi Laxmi in our palms and offer respect to Mother Earth before putting our feet on the ground. Such daily practices help to use all resources wisely and with love and respect.
Many of our problems today are caused by misuse and pollution of natural resources – trees, plants, animal life, bird life and insect life. We have desecrated and destroyed forests, water bodies, land and desert. Many species of birds and animals are now extinct and many on verge of extinction. Our greed for profit has made us exploit our own species and a great deal of poverty and pain that we see across globe is due to our own lack of foresight and disrespect for mankind.
Let us follow the very simple rule of do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Let us honor and respect all as we want it for us. When we do the SitaRam mantra, meditation and follow the teachings of the Guru, it becomes easy for us to see the Oneness and Sanctity of Life and we automatically respect all.
