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

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 a new born baby,almost 22 years ago.
       They have become a part of our family,sharing happy and sad phases of life with my family and vice-versa.I do think that meeting those peoples whom you often don't meet now,will be a better option to show your true love and care to them.
        But,finally,I got my reason to spend two extra hours which is not from any of these above mentioned options.
        Frankly speaking,If I get two extra hours in a day,I would like to spend them with my parents,my Maa and Papa.Whether it is talking to them,listening to those old stories that they used to narrate at night to make me sleep.Or asking them about their life style back in 70's or 80's before my birth.Trying to guess the pains that a mother and father used to take for his child.
        Although,It is also a fact that we are in the same house but due to lack of time our conversations are too short,much about the work and my studies.
       They are getting older day by day and I am getting occupied day by day.I do not want to get aloof and isolated from them,mentally.Since,I am the only child of my parents,if I will not think about them then who will?
       I will give my extra two hours to my parents,my God.
            What about You????

you are true but its not always done sometimes within the all of our busy schedule we try to do our pending works like update passbook 4m bank or go to class for extra study or in a off day meet with old friends and of course what u said that spend sometime with mom & dad so that they can feel that their son have responsibility for them but sorry to say its not possible to do this all the time,,because 6 days in a week we after came back from office we are very tired so we cant speak with parents either we busy with girlfriends or with office work if we spend two hours extra for my personal life okay leave it only 30 minutes if we spend with parents belive me you will be the most happy person of the world,,
@Ghosh,As you said that if we spend 30 minutes with our parents,that will also make us & them happy.Then why not try to take out some more time from your busy schedule and being busy with girlfriend and give some extra time to them,not for showing our responsibility towards them but to share our love,warmth & to care.As well as,making them realize that when you wanted them for holding their fingers to learn walking.This time you are with them and will be always like this,when they want you to company them,in their old-age.

Viewing 51 Feet Tall Lord Shiva Statue at Bangeshwar Mahadev Mandir in Howrah, Eastern India.

One of it's kind in Eastern India, this 51 feet tall Lord Shiva statue was unveiled by Honorable President Of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday, December 13, 2015. The President along with his team and Governor of West Bengal Keshari Nath Tripathi visited the famous temple ' Natun Mandir' aka ' Naya Mandir' which means 'Newest Temple' in English, i.e, Seth Banshidhar Jalan Smriti Mandir or Bangeshwar Mahadev Mandir in Howrah early morning on Sunday. FYI, the Shiva Temple rests in between Howrah Railway Station and Salkia's Bandhaghat area exactly on Salkia School Road which is both way connected to Kolkata either by road or by river through Golabari-Armenian Ferry Service as well as Bandhaghat-Ahiritola Ferry service too. It would hardly take an hour to reach the landmark if you are connecting the nearby dots I mentioned above during peak traffic hours. First Day of inaugurating the tallest ever lord Shiva in Eastern India at Bangeshwar

कलकत्ता का प्रसिद्द बाबा भूतनाथ मंदिर और हावड़ा निवासी भक्त

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!

Witnessing Aarti and Shringar at Kolkata's famous Baba Bhootnath Mandir

              The sacred month of Savan in 2011 ended on Saturday, 13th August. As I told you earlier, I poured water in Baba bhootnath Mandir at Posta, Kolkata on all the 4 mondays of this month. Though I had my exams or morning classes during this period but I did not miss any of the Mondays . Rare Pictures of Aarti & Shringar of Lord Shiva Idol at Posta's Bhootnath Temple, Courtesy- Image Source- /                 We go there riding a bike on Sunday nights after 11pm, used to reach there at 1pm or so, and destined to come back home till morning 5am. There was no chance to get adequate sleep and proper rest for the body on that day. But none cares about these stuffs during these religiously sacred days as I never felt tired after returning back to home from the temple. It seems like the Lord Shiva is attracting you towards himself. It's real fun to go there in a group, stand in a queue for hours and hours, enjoy waiting for the
