Happy Raksha Bandhan Day

Today is Raksha Bandhan Day in India. Sisters tie a Rakhi on brother’s hand which is a symbolic tie of love and respect between brothers and sisters. It means a solemn promise on behalf of the brother to protect his sister. (Raksha means to protect in Hindi). The new innovation in Rakhi is an online tech Rakhi which my sister sent me yesterday.

The Passion of The Christ…Equanimity of Jesus and Mother Mary

The movie The Passion of the Christ, is based on the final 12 hours in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The movie is entirely shot in Aramaic language, an ancient language spoken by Jesus.

The movie is one of the most authentic portrayal on circumstances and events leading to Crucifixion of Jesus.    Continue reading
