That visit to Sri Raj Rajeshwari Temple in Konnagar from Howrah–A short road trip

Though this is not my first visit to Maa Sri Raj Rajeshwari Tripur Sundari Temple in Konnagar which falls under Konnagar Municpality in Hooghly district, adjacent to Howrah district, West Bengal.
I can remember that last time I visited this temple with friends and that was a short road trip on motorcycle.

But, this time this road trip was altogether a family affair. A car was booked and we reached there at 5 pm.

  After puja in the temple, crossed the G.T. Road and sat on the ghats of  the River Ganges just in-front of the "(7) Saat Mahadev Mandir".  It was an awesome idea to spare time sitting on the ghat, eating 'Alu Kabli,Chaat followed by masala cold drink while watching the sun setting and the sun light becoming dim. It felt like the voltage of the Sun is reducing slowly and gradually by itself.
                   As a consequence, the birds are returning back to their nests for which the sound of their chirping coming out from trees increases rapidly. The baby crabs were also able to find their place among the hollows between the bricks of the ghat. Teenagers, Married couples, parents with their children and older peoples are coming on the ghat to enjoy this mesmerizing scenario of sunset.

I felt a bit jealous with the residents as they are lucky to have their home nearby to the temple and the ghat. They can spend their leisure time either coming to the ghat or sitting silently among the divine silence of the temple for hours and hours whenever they want.

If I had two extra hours in a day,I would......

Picture courtesy-Internet Now a days,every person's life is so busy and so hectic that we do not get time for other things.Even we do not get much time to complete our pending works on the same day or other day.In this way,the pending works get clotted and becomes a huge mountain to climb upon .          I was thinking that in these busy hours of work or study,if I get two more extra hours in a day, what will I do ?         Whether I will spend them in completing my pending works of getting a new Ration Card,as we have from shifted from the rented house to our own home on the other side of the town,or will I go to meet some of my friends and relatives with whom I never find time to meet,though they are in the same town .        I have got other options also to spend my time,like meeting and having fun with my old classmates hovering around Kolkata or visiting my old area & meeting those peoples who were with us in that rented colony since the time I opened my eyes as

कुछ ढूंढली यादें और कंप्यूटर में रक्खे हुए कुछ फोटो ने मेरा ध्यान आकर्षित किया! जैसे ही मैंने फोटो देखने के लिए खोला तो सहसा याद आगया के यह सारे फोटो 2012 के सावन के महीने की हैं! वह मेरा आखरी सावन था जब बाबा धाम से लौटने के बाद, आखरी सोमवार को मैं अपने दोस्तों के साथ कलकत्ता के निमतला समसान घाट स्तिथ बाबा भूतनाथ के मंदिर गया था! आखरी सावन इसलिए क्यूंकि 2013 में पिता जी के परलोक सिधारने के बाद; ना ही मैं बाबा धाम गया और ना ही सावन के महीने में भूतनाथ मंदिर! समय बीतता गया, संन् 2014 आगया और मैं फिर से उसी जगह खड़ा हूँ जहाँ मैंने खुद को छोड़ा था! आज उन्ही यादों और अनुभव को कुछ पुराने फोटो के जरिये आपके सामने ला रहा हूँ!

Do's and Don'ts of selecting the right type of face mask for Corona Virus Covid 19 protection

The deadly Covid 19 or Corona Virus we all know about is evolving day by day, so should be our (humans) tactics for protection from it. Do you know, which type of face mask protects you better from Corona Virus? If not, you are in the right place as I am going to share the photographs I took while on a visit to an OPD (Out-Patients Department) of one the leading hospitals in Kolkata. Just after entering the hospital OPD as soon as I moved towards the lift, there was a paper printed image showing the do's and don'ts while selecting the right type of mask for full protection from Covid 19 Corona Virus. Without further adieu, let us see and understand from the image itself. The facial masks with air filters is a strict no-no whereas any face mask without an air filter is right choice for better protection & prevention of Corona Virus Covid 19. Just make sure it covers up widely & perfectly. Please spread this message with others, as it can save several lives. T
