Porbander’s Sri Hari Mandir

Porbander is basically famous for the birth place of Mahatma Gandhi. It is a city near to Jamnagar and placed between two big pilgrimage points ” Dwarika” and ” Somnath”. Anybody who wants to visit Dwarika and Somnath , must cross Porbander. But , Porbander in itself assumes an important place in Gujarat. A pieceful city. Nobody calls Mahatma Gandhi by his name … everybody calls ” BAPUJI”. That is the love of people towards great Gandhiji. 

Porbander is an important port of Western India. Now it has one more attraction – The temple Shree Hari Mandir founded by a Saint Shri Ramesh Bhai Ojha. Ramesh Bhai is a very popular saint and renowned for his indepth knowledge of Indian mythology. But I like his Bhajans and Kirtans. Any body who visits Porbander should visit this nice place. The temple is a good example of Vaastu. The temple is well above the ground , a big rectangular hall containing small temples of Lord Krishna, Durga, Shiva and others. The environment of the temple is so divine, that every entrant will feel mental peace. I went in the evening , everybody joins for the Aarti sitting at their own place, nobody disturbs in any way , everything is well disciplined. After Aarti , everybody will get prasad from the hands of Rishi Kumars. Rishi kumars are the students of vedic school run by the trust committe of Shri Ramesh bhai . Students are secluded from the society , they dont mix up with the people , they are taught Brahmacharya , vedic chants, Indian mythology, Shastras, Purans and other Indian rituals. in the compound of temple, rishi kumars do farming. There is a shed for cows in which cows are served by the trust employees and Rishi kumar. It is said that in the evening, recorded music of flute is played and it is the same tune which was played by Lord Krishna for his cows. Listening the same music, it is said that cows give more milk, I heard that researchers come at this place for their research on Indian values and vedas. Overall , the entire campus is divine. You will only appreciate.

There is an apartment for Ramesh Bhai Ojha near the main temple building. Whenever he is free, he comes and joins Aarti and sits outside the temple and meets people. In the hall of the temple, CDs , DVDs , lectures by Ramesh Bhai Ojha are available for purchase. Also many books, things for worship and other showpieces and things to wear are available.

There is a huge place for children to play, hence no child would refuse to come at Sri Hari Mandir again and again. Please go with family , your time and money will not be wasted.Image


Talat Aziz’s lost song

For many years… on the net..I was searching for a song sung by Ghazal singer Talat Aziz… Jaan kya aapki aankhon ne kaha hai humse…aajkal Sahar me har koi khafa hai humse… but I was not finding. Suddenly I got it on day before yesterday. The Nagma was firstly telecast in a TV serial ” Saahil” in which Talat Aziz himself act. That was his golden period. After that the Nagma was telecast at DD -1 ( National ) after that it was lost. But now Talat ji has again added at Facebook. Those who know about this song will welcome this news. Some words have been written by Talat Aziz himself in Faceebook. Have a look http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=255796514438995&set=vb.127685398452&type=2&theater

Songs from Karwaan

Before an hour I was listening a song from a hindi movie Karwaan… a nasir hossain movie starring Jitendra and Asha Parekh, The movie was most famous for the song ” Piyaa toooo ab to aaja…. monica ….I love you “. That song made Asha Bhonsle a star and cemented her post in Bollywood for fast songs specially on Helen and item girls. However in this movie one of the best songs was ” Dilwar ..aa Dilwar…. dil se pyare dilwar… dil ki sunta…” any body who sees this song will think that the song must have been sung by Asha Bhonsle.. but the song was sung by her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar. R D Burman was very intelligent….. he knew the song was based on an Arabian Music where voice needed special control which should be errotic but do not contain any stream . I am sure R D would have thought about Asha first …………but finally settled the song with Lata.. The song was more like an item song picturised on Aruna Irani … however the soundtrack was better than Monica song.

Great victory of Mumbai Indians

All Kudos to Kieron Pollard !! Snatched the match from the mouth of Hyderabad Sunrisers !! All the job done by two players , contribution of both players are equal — Pollard and Pareira. One has put everything to win a match and other let match go away from the hands of his team.  Its good that Sachin got retired hurt otherwise it was not his cup of tea to hit those sixes now. Rohit sharma was totally nervous , however Pollard redeemed the money on him !!! Great Mumbai show!!
