In March last year, 20-year-old NCC cadet and an Indian army aspirant Bhargsetu Sharma had went on a picnic to Mahi Sagar in Rasalpur. When she was about to swim in the river, she found out two boys were drowning in the river and people from the shore was screaming to save their lives. While one of the boys was rescued by a local, his friend was nowhere to be found. Bhargsetu, who is an accomplished swimmer swam for about 12 minutes, and as she neared the riverbed, she finally found the boy. He was immobile, appeared lifeless. Using her presence of mind, the young cadet administered CPR to the boy. His jaws were locked, so she pushed her fingers into his mouth. She was careful as to not restrict his breathing and trying to get the water out. Within minutes, his body went into a state of seizure, and he started biting Bhargsetu’s fingers. After 21 minutes of ordeal the boy regained his conscience and he was saved.
Bhargsetu who is now pursuing her Masters in Social Work always felt a connection and affinity towards neglected strays. In 2012, she and her father used to feed the newborn pups of a stray dog. As they grew a little older, the pups would litter around the compound. Annoyed by this, their neighbours took away the puppies and abandoned them in different locations. The watchman who had pleaded with them to not take away the pups told Bhargsetu’s family about the incident. She filed a police complaint and got in touch with animal welfare NGOs and successfully managed to reunite the pups with their mother after eight long hours. Over the years, she has rescued close to 3,800 distressed strays and birds.
“I'm very cautious about who has access to me lately. And it's not out of arrogance, it's out of the need to continue to protect my space and energy as I continue to do the work to elevate myself. This chapter requires me to be a little less accessible.” - unknown #riskhappy

"It takes a level of self love, of dedication and determination to live your greatest life. So, look within. Look at every area of your life and ask yourself these questions- Am I on course? Am I growing mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Anything that is blocking that - anything that is preventing you from living your greatest life, make the tough decision to let it go." - unknown #riskhappy
Why should I be spiritual? Everything that is science or technical or any subject is the true knowledge, so why should I follow that doesn't even exist?
Its not your fault to not believe in it. Half of our life we spent time surrounded by these worldly things, it's natural to feel so. No one can teach you how to be spiritual indeed you have to realise it.
So in which way spirituality will helps us?
The most simple explanation to all the queries is,
"Education + Kindness/wisdom = KNOWLEDGE"
Worldly things will educate you and it is the spirituality that will further polish you which will take you to the purpose you were born for. Finally, It casts in form of knowledgeable great personality.The purpose of every living being is to serve other living being without any selfish desires of rewards.
“The toughest question I’m ever asked is where I'm from. I was born in Flowood, Mississippi in a super tiny country hospital. My dad has an artistic spirit, but he doesn't specifically have a craft, so his whole life mission was to help creatives figure out their space in their culture. Eventually said he knew he wanted to get to Paris. He wanted to start an art gallery, so he did. When I was 8 years old, we moved to Paris and I grew up there.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“And it was all about artists. The whole culture is about the arts, and so we’d have big parties with like fifty different artists, which was awesome and I loved that. When I was 17, we moved back here for my parents’ work. At that point I went to SEMO and I met my husband and just decided to stay.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Art history, I think is the most beautiful way to learn about our world because you get the viewpoint of these incredibly creative, sometimes super overlooked individuals who make things that are gorgeous and so specific to the time. Like, you can't recreate what happened in the Renaissance. I love the arts so much and I'm super passionate about it. Everything I do in my own personal time tries to revolve around my passion. As for me, I feel like I kind of grew up with the same spirit as my dad in that I am an artist. I'm a photographer and I'm a singer; those are my crafts, but more so than anything I love to encourage the arts.” - Cape Girardeau, Missouri⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #humansofcape#humansof#hoc#capegirardeau#missouri#southeastmissouri#semo#humanity#smalltownsbigstories#yourstories#beanicehuman
We are living in the #ageofoffense , or as I heard it phrased recently- we are in a "United State of Offense". ·
We cannot substitute #truth for #feelings - or we are going to become more perpetually confused about what is right & what is wrong.
When we blur the lines & don't speak up for what is #morallycorrect for the sake of not "offending" another, we are doing #humanity a disservice. ·
That is not to say we cannot be #kind to one another- only that one of the greatest kindnesses we can do for another human being is being honest with them.

Lu Guang, investigative photojournalist pictured last, was last heard from on the date of November 3rd 2018. Guang exposed parts of his country that his government forbade the general public to acknowledge. Through his photographic work, we now see these villages plagued by AIDS outbreaks (killing hundreds), the dumping of oil into the ocean by government sponsored industry, homes where a child's only source of nutrition is powered milk, and the inhumane working conditions in Chinese jean factories. Why would the Chinese government want to hide this from the public?
I have a small but growing collection but my favorite by far is this forty years commemorative stamp on the 1948 UN Declaration of #HumanRights . Not the most expensive stamp but the most valuable in terms of advancing human rights: universal, inalienable, indivisible, interdependent and interrelated. #WorldHumanitarianDay
Today, 70 yrs on we face the same struggle but new faces, resurgent authoritarian regimes, right wing populist, left wings parties and illiberal democracies. #HoldtheLine
