मेरी डायरी

Poetry, literature and me

ज़िंदगी में ऐसे ना जाने कितने मौके आते हैं जब हम सोचते है की अगर हमने अपना ये लक्ष्य पा लिया तो हमारी ज़िंदगी से सारी समस्या समाप्त हो जाएगी। उदाहरण के लिए जब हम छात्र होते है तो हमे लगता हैं की अगर हमनें परीक्षा में अच्छा प्रदर्शन किया और अच्छे मार्क्स स्कोर किए तो हमारी सारी समस्या खत्म हो जाएंगी।जब हम थोड़े और बड़े होते है तो लगता है की बस अच्छी सी नौकरी लग जाए फिर तो जीवन में कोई समस्या ही नहीं रहेगी , पर नौकरी लग जाने के बाद सोचते है की बस अपने मन पसंद व्यक्ति से विवाह हो जाए तो जीवन परेशानियों से मुक्त हो जायेगा । फिर विवाह पश्चात सोचने लगते है की बच्चे अच्छे से पढ़े, उनकी नौकरी लग जाए , अच्छे घर में शादी हो जाए तो सभी समस्यों का हाल हो जायेगा । इसी उधेड़ बुन में ना जाने…

A First Nation in southern Saskatchewan said Wednesday that it has discovered hundreds of unmarked graves at the site of another former residential school for Indigenous children.

Scholars on LinkedIn Are Being Blocked in China ‘Without Telling Them Why’ – Slashdot (Me: LinkedIn plays with China on censorship)

Affected users say social-networking site owned by Microsoft is obstructing them over ‘prohibited content’ without further explanation. From a report: Eyck Freymann, an Oxford University doctoral student, was surprised to get a notice from LinkedIn this month telling him his account had been blocked in China. The “Experience” section of his profile, which detailed his career history, contained “prohibited” content, he was informed. The social-networking site owned by Microsoft didn’t explain more, but Mr. Freymann said he thought it was because he had included the words “Tiananmen Square massacre” in the entry for his two-year stint as a research assistant for a book in 2015.  Source: Scholars on LinkedIn Are Being Blocked in China ‘Without Telling Them Why’ – Slashdot

Alltagsszenen im Iran

Senioren um die Welt

“Welcome to Iran” ! Mit solch einer Begrüßung hatten wir nicht gerechnet, als wir vor zwei Jahren den Iran besuchten. Egal wo wir hinkamen, überall wurden wir mit einer großen Warmherzigkeit, Gastfreundschaft und Neugier empfangen, wie wir uns das vorher nicht vorstellen konnten. Wir hatten die Reise wegen der grandiosen Kunstschätze, der Gartenkunst und vielfältigen Landschaft angetreten, und als wir zurückkamen, waren wir so überwältigt von dem Land, der Kultur und vor allem von den Menschen, dass wir am liebsten sofort wieder zurückgekehrt wären. Mit den folgenden Bildern kann ich nur einen kleinen Eindruck vom Alltagsleben der Menschen im Iran geben.

Good People Doing Good Things — Ms. Shirley Raines

Filosofa's Word

Well, well, well … we made it to another Wednesday, and I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more than ready to hear about some good people for a change!  First, though, I think it is worth noting that the pandemic brought out the goodness in at least some people, and charitable donations were up in 2020 by 5% over and above those of 2019!  Last year, an estimated $471.44 billion was donated to charities around the nation, making 2020 the highest year of charitable giving on record!  Just goes to show what I’ve been saying for a few years now – there are lots ‘n lots of good people out there.


I am focusing on just one very good person today, for her story is worth telling and hearing.  She is Ms. Shirley Raines, who is giving her all to helping the homeless in a 50-block section of…
