My Motherland Gujarat:

Indian tradition and dharma(religion, law) has always adored and worshipped the Motherland as superior to all Gods and Goddesses and the Heaven.

Adoration and worship of Bharat Mata, our Janmabhoomi, Punyabhoomi, Karmabhoomi, and Moksha Bhoomi, is the hallmark of Hindu Dharma.

The Vedas and Puranas proclaim the glory and greatness of our Motherland. In Ramayana there is a sloka uttered by Sri Rama.

जननी जन्मभूमिश्- च स्वर्गादपि- गरीयसी

Janani Janma-bhoomi-scha Swargadapi Gariyasi

The meaning of the above sloka is Mother and Motherland are greater than heavens. Nothing can be holier to us than this land.

Every particle of dust, everything living or nonliving, every stock and stone, tree and rivulet of this land is holy to us.


Gujarat is the westernmost state in India and its capital is Gandhinagar. Its largest city is Ahmedabad. Gujarat is home to the Gujarati speaking people of India. The state encompasses major sites of the Indus Valley Civilization such as Lothal and Dholavira. Gujarat played an important role in the economic history of India throughout the history of India. It is home to major ports in India’s ancient and modern history, leading it to become one of the main trade and commerce center of India. Lothal, one of the world’s first ports, is located in Gujarat. Also, Mahatma Gandhi, India’s father of the nation, was Gujarati and led the Indian Independence Movement against the British, as was Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the father of Pakistan. Today also, Gujarat has one of the fastest growing economies in India

Modern-day Gujarat is derived from Gujjar (Gujjar Rāshtra), which means Gujjar nation. The origins of the Gujjars are uncertain. The Gujjar clan appeared in northern India about the time of the Huna invasions of northern India. Some scholars, such as V. A. Smith, believed that the Gujjars were foreign immigrants, possibly a branch of Hephthalites (“White Huns”), however others, such as K.M.Munshi, stated them as Indian. The name of the tribe was Sanskritized to “Gurjara”

Historically, the present-day state of Gujarat has been one of the main centers of the Indus Valley Civilization. It contains major ancient metropolitan cities from the Indus Valley such as Lothal, Dholavira, and Gola Dhoro. The ancient city of Lothal is the site of the India’s first port. Also, Dholavira, the ancient city, is one of the largest and most prominent archaeological sites in India, belonging to the Indus Valley Civilization. The most recent discovery was Gola Dhoro. All together, about 50 Indus Valley settlement ruins were discovered in Gujarat.

The ancient history of Gujarat was enriched by their commercial activities. There is a clear historical evidence of trade and commerce ties with Sumer in the Persian Gulf during the time period of 1000 to 750 BC. Later Gujarat was settled by the Aryans.
There was a succession of Hindu kingdoms including the era of the Gupta dynasty. Afterwards the region was ruled by the Maitrakas and then the‎ Solankis. The 9th century history of Gujarat saw the emergence of the Muslims in the political arena of the state. The first Muslim conqueror was Mahmud of Ghazna whose conquest of Somnath effectively ended the rule of the Solankis.

Leaders like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Morarji Desai, K.M. Munshi, Narhari Parikh, Mahadev Desai, Mohanlal Pandya, Bhulabhai Desai and Ravi Shankar Vyas all hailed from Gujarat. As well, Mohammed Ali Jinnah’s, Pakistan’s first Governor-General, father was from an area which later became Gujarat. Gujarat was also the site of some of the most popular revolts, including the Satyagrahas in Kheda, Bardoli, Borsad and the Salt Satyagraha.

Discover sense of Excellence in Gujarat – where life breathes, Rediscovering life in nation’s Heritage – In the beauty and charm of Culture and traditions, In the life and lifestyles of people who made their contribution to Gujarat – Rediscover real meaning of life everywhere.

There is something about the soil, the sun, the moon and the stars – something about the space and the people – Above all, Freedom – freedom of choice, to breathe the air of joy and happiness, peace and tranquility.

In addition to being a trade and business powerhouse, Tourism, food and Festivals has always been a major and vital aspect of the state. And why not, since the place has some really wonderful things that exudes a great charm with their diverse and colorful facets.

खाने का स्वाद लेना है तो गुजरात आइये

Can you imagine life without sweetness? No. That is why Gujarati add sweetness in food to add sweetness to your life. “KHAVANU, PIVANU ANE MAJJA KARWANU”

त्यौहार है गुजरात के अनमोल
इनकी खूबसूरती का न है कोई मोल ,

An event is best experienced at the heart of all the action. Gujarati enjoys every festival with great fervour and grace but the state is famous for Navratri and Uttrayan, and these festivals are appreciated all over the World. The most enjoyable part of Garba is dandiya raas where as Uttrayan is the festival of kites. Undiyo and Chikki add the taste in this festival. Experiencing a festival in Gujarat is a matter to cherish forever.

व्यापार से नाम है जग में जगमग
कुछ ऐसा ही है गुजरात का रिश्ता सब के संग।

“Business is in the DNA of Gujaratis.” No, it is not a myth. Gujarat actually is the land of Business. Gujarati’s have been in business for centuries and many families have involved in the business for generations. Hence, the environment of Gujarat inspires the younger generation to become an entrepreneur. Business is also the reason of Gujarat’s flourishing economy and development.

Leadership in the essence of Gujarati’s, this is something which is in their blood. The Mahatma –“ महान आत्मा” is the son of Gujarat, Sardar Patel who left an imprint on the nation is from Gujarat. All big business tycoons who have changed the way the world do the business are from Gujarat. Our very own PM Narendra Modi Ji – Who is considered as the architect of New India is from the land of Gujarat.

“Gujarat has reached a stage of development where every Gujarati would feel proud to be a Gujarati.” – PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji

All these wonderful things add life to the state be it seeing lions, seeing an unending desert made of sea salt, temple of gold and lot more. Gujarat has everything unique and new to explore. Gujarat is an unforgettable lifetime experience.

Aaiye aur “kuchh din to gujariye Gujarat me”

Happy Parsurama Jayanti (The Appearance Day of Lord Parsurama)

Today is Lord Parasurama Jayanti

So, some shlokas about Him from bhagavatam :


yam āhur vāsudevāṁśaṁ
haihayānāṁ kulāntakam
triḥ-sapta-kṛtvo ya imāṁ
cakre niḥkṣatriyāṁ mahīm

(Learned scholars accept this Parasurama as the celebrated incarnation of Vasudeva who annihilated the dynasty of Kartavirya. Parasurama killed all the ksatriyas on earth twenty-one times)


dṛptaṁ kṣatraṁ bhuvo bhāram
abrahmaṇyam anīnaśat
rajas-tamo-vṛtam ahan
phalguny api kṛte ‘ṁhasi

(When the royal dynasty, being excessively proud because of the material modes of passion and ignorance, became irreligious and ceased to care for the laws enacted by the brahmanas,
Parasurama killed them. Although their offense was not very severe, he killed them to lessen the burden of the world)


atha rājani niryāte
rāma āśrama āgataḥ
śrutvā tat tasya daurātmyaṁ
cukrodhāhir ivāhataḥ

(Thereafter, Kartaviryarjuna having left with the kamadhenu, Parasurama returned to the ashrama. When Parasurama, the youngest son of Jamadagni, heard about Kartaviryarjuna’s nefarious deed, he became as angry as a trampled snake)


ghoram ādāya paraśuṁ
satūṇaṁ varma kārmukam
anvadhāvata durmarṣo
mṛgendra iva yūthapam

(Taking up his fierce chopper, his shield, his bow and a quiver of arrows, Lord Parasurama, exceedingly angry, chased Kartaviryarjuna just as a lion chases an elephant)


tam āpatantaṁ bhṛgu-varyam ojasā
dhanur-dharaṁ bāṇa-paraśvadhāyudham
aiṇeya-carmāmbaram arka-dhāmabhir
yutaṁ jaṭābhir dadṛśe purīṁ viśan

(As King Kartavuryarjuna entered Mahismati Puri, he saw Lord Parasurama, the best of the Bhrgu dynasty, coming after him, holding a chopper, shield, bow and arrows. Lord Parasurama was covered with a black deerskin, and his matted locks of hair appeared like the sunshine)


acodayad dhasti-rathāśva-pattibhir
akṣauhiṇīḥ sapta-daśātibhīṣaṇās
tā rāma eko bhagavān asūdayat

(Upon seeing Parasurama, Kartaviryarjuna immediately feared him and sent many elephants, chariots, horses and infantry soldiers equipped with clubs, swords, arrows, rstis, sataghnis, saktis, and many similar weapons to fight against him.
Kartaviryarjuna sent seventeen full aksauhinis of soldiers to check Parasurama. But Lord Parasurama alone killed all of them)


kṣamayā rocate lakṣmīr
brāhmī saurī yathā prabhā
kṣamiṇām āśu bhagavāṁs
tuṣyate harir īśvaraḥ

(The duty of a brahmana is to culture the quality of forgiveness, which is illuminating like the sun. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Hari, is pleased with those who are forgiving)


jāmadagnyo ‘pi bhagavān
rāmaḥ kamala-locanaḥ
āgāminy antare rājan
vartayiṣyati vai bṛhat

(My dear King Paruksit, in the next manvantara the lotus-eyed Personality of Godhead Lord Parasurama, the son of Jamadagni, will be a great propounder of Vedic knowledge. In other words, he will be one of the seven sages)


āste ‘dyāpi mahendrādrau
nyasta-daṇḍaḥ praśānta-dhīḥ

(Lord Parasurama still lives as an brahmana in the mountainous country known as Mahendra. Completely satisfied, having given up all the weapons of a ksatriya, he is always worshiped, adored and offered prayers for his exalted character and activities by such celestial beings)


evaṁ bhṛguṣu viśvātmā
bhagavān harir īśvaraḥ
avatīrya paraṁ bhāraṁ
bhuvo ‘han bahuśo nṛpān

(In this way the supreme soul, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Lord and the supreme controller, descended as an incarnation in the Bhrgu dynasty and released the universe from the burden of undesirable kings by killing them many times)

The Bell in Lord Hanuman’s tail

The Bell in Hanuman’s tail – is an interesting feature that can be seen not just in Vyasa-Anjaneya pratima-s but also in many pratima-s across Bharata bhUmi. I have learnt one legend associated with it from elders.

Here is the legend…

Before leaving for Lanka, Sri Rama raised an army of monkeys & bears. He assured the families of these warriors that “I loose none but will return with all.”

Vanara(Monkey) army was filled with many varieties of monkeys with varied shape, size& battle power. ‘singilIka’ was one such monkey variety of dwarf vAnarAs. singilIkA-s don’t carry weapons but use teeth & nails to attack enemies. They engage in deadly melees&fall upon enemy en-mass.

Now, we come to the time & setting wherein an epic battle between Rama & Ravana was raging. Many of Ravana’s finest generals & warriors including his many sons have fallen in the battle. Left with no option, Ravana woke up his sleeping, giant sibling – Kumbhakarna.

Ravana ordered him to fight Rama. Kumbhakarna tried to reason with his elder brother but went into battle due to brotherly love. He came to battle field raiding a huge chariot. This chariot was decorated with a string of tiny bells around its canopy.

The giant Rakshasa fought with great gusto only to succumb to deadly rAma bANa. As Kumbhakarna started falling off from chariot, his hand hit against a bell hung to the canopy. Due to the impact of Kumbhakarna’s mighty hand, the bell got disjointed & fell on the ground.

That very moment, a team of 1000 singilIka-s were moving towards a rakshasa. They got trapped under this bell which was a huge as a mountain for their size. Unaware of what befell on them & unable to figure out why sudden darkness wrapped them in, singilIkAs started worrying.

Few moments later, one monkey said “I fear no one would be saving us?” Another said “We are doomed.” Yet another said “It is our fault to come here.” After sometime, some monkeys have started finding fault with their king, Sugreeva.

The fit of rage caught up with many & they began to accuse Rama & Hanuma as the reason for their misery. An aged monkey among the lot shouted over others to calm down & said “Let us not loose hope in Sri Rama. Let’s chant his nAma & see what happens.”

Having got nothing much to do singilIkA-s one-by-one engaged in Rama nama smaraNa.

Meanwhile, outside the bell, Ravana too got killed by Rama bANa marking the end of the battle. Now, Rama sitting in his camp ordered Sugreeva to take a count of his armies. Sugreeva returned to Rama with 1000 nos. short. Rama ordered for re-count but to no avail.

Rama got up by saying to Hanuma – “Lead the way into the battle field, I will search for the missing companions.” On hearing this, Hanuma started towards the battle field strewn with bodies of slain rakshas, broken charriots, spears, shields etc.

As Hanuma was clearing the debris, Rama started looking either sides for clues that could lead to missing monkeys. Little far into the field, Rama stopped midway & pointed towards a bell.

All got surprised by this act & were looking quizzically at Rama. Meanwhile, Hanuma having understood the mind of Rama, instantaneously put his tail into the ring of the bell & lifted it gently.

There, inside the bell, were 1000 tiny monkey warriors with closed eyes & tAraka nAma on their lips. Thus went a uproar “Jaya Jaya Rama…Jaya Jaya Rama” like a thunder from the sky.

Having the silence thus far surrounding them shattered & a flood of bright light hitting their eyes, those small singilIkA-s came to senses & opened their eyes.

Ah! There He is…AjAnubAhu, aravinda dalAyatAksha, niShAcharadhvamsi, the ever beautiful Rama Swamy!

Unable to believe their bhAgya & caught unprepared to welcome it, those singilIkA-s stood like images drawn by a skilled painter. An another round of applause by rest of army caused the tiny warriors to know what to be done next.

They prostrated before the lotus feet of Sri Rama in reverence, with devotion but more importantly to condone their retribution of doubting Sri Rama.

Rama smiled & bestowed his sacred ‘karaspArsha’ that even Sri Lakshmi can’t have at Her will.

Later Rama turned his eyes towards Hanuma, standing tall among kapi-s but slightly bent in obedience in his Swamy’s presence. A shining bell in his tail he looked like prasanna, abhaya, varada AnjanEya. Bhagawan Rama was beyond limits to see him so.

Rama bestowed a boon that whoever worship Hanuma with bell in tail will be bestowed with greater jnAna, bhakti & vairAgya. They will be brought out from ignorance just like how those singilIkA-s were released by vAyuputra from darkness.

Jai Jai Bajrang Bali!

Some Interesting and Unique Lord Hanuman Stories

1) Lord Hanuman had also written the Ramayana but discarded it as Valmiki knew that his version would not stand a chance & will remain unnoticed against Lord Hanuman’s .

2) The popular picture/ painting of Hanuman ripping open his chest, revealing an image of Rama & Sita comes from the story when Hanuman refused a gift Sita gave him, as he could not accept anything that did not have Rama’s name on it. He rips open his chest to show their image.

3) A mischief by Narada resulted in a death sentence for Hanuman & Lord Rama was supposed to shoot him with his arrows. As Lord Hanuman kept chanting Lord Rama’s name , all of Rama’s arrows , including the Brahmastra failed to harm.

4) As long as Hanuman stands guard, even Yama cannot enter to take Rama away to Vaikuntha . Thus Rama drops his ring deep into the earth, into the kingdom of serpents & requests #Hanuman to fetch it. So he is not standing guard against Yama.

5) Hanuman protects Arjuna in the battle of Kurukshetra , as Arjuna ‘s chariot had Hanuman on the flag. As soon as the war is over, Lord Krishna orders Arjuna to step down from the chariot & he thanks Hanuman . Hanuman comes out of the flag , bows to Krishna & leaves. Hanuman protects Arjuna
In the war at Kurukshetra , Hanuman is represented on a flag on Arjuna ‘s chariot . War over , as soon as Hanuman leaves , when Arjuna steps down, it burns to ashes. Krishna explains : Hanuman protected the chariot .

6) Five faced Hanuman : The 5 faces of Hanuman are: Narasimha, Garuda, Varaha, Hayagriva & that of himself . He only takes this form once to kill Ahiravan , the brother of Ravan , who had kidnapped Rama & Laxman . This is known as the Panch-mukhi Hanuman.

7) Seeing Sita apply Sindoor , for the long life of Lord Rama , Hanuman applies Sindoor all over his body. Impressed with his devotion to Lord Rama , the Lord blesses him .


Hanuman Chalisa is a Hindu devotional hymn addressed to Hanuman. It was authored by 16th Century poet Tulsidas in the Awadhi language. The word “chālīsā” is derived from “chālīs”, which means the number forty in Hindi, as the Hanuman Chalisa has 40 verses (excluding the couplets at the beginning and at the end).

Hanuman is a vanara (a monkey-like humanoid deity), a devotee of Lord Rama, and one of the central characters in the Indian epic poem, the Ramayana. Folk tales acclaim the powers of Hanuman, and he is considered by many to be an avatar of the god Shiva. The qualities of Hanuman – his strength, courage, wisdom, celibacy, devotion to Rama and the many names by which he was known – are detailed in the Hanuman Chalisa. There are more temples devoted to Hanuman than any other deity in India, and recitation or chanting of the Hanuman Chalisa is a common religious practice. The Hanuman Chalisa is the most popular hymn in praise of Hanuman, and is recited by millions of Hindus every day.

Becoming Hanuman:

To become Hanuman we must awaken to our inner nature as a portion of cosmic consciousness. Each one of us has the power of the entire universe within us.

But we can only recognise this when we become aware of our inner Self, what the Upanishads call the antaryami or inner controller. Hanuman is the force of Rama working within us, the strength of our innermost self that is the ruler of all.

It is Hanuman alone who can discover Sita Devi. Sita represents the deeper Self-knowledge or Atma Vidya, through which Rama or the self can be fully realised.

Sita is also the feminine principle of space and receptivity that the cosmic Vayu depends upon. Without Hanuman, we cannot find Sita, and Rama cannot fulfill his destiny of the highest dharma.

Let us not forget our own deeper cosmic energy in our fascination with the latest information technology that is but its shadow. Hanuman reveals to us the way of transcendence.

Jai Sri Ram!

Jai Jai Hanuman!

Jai Bajrang Bali!
