A Guide To Space

Space is a huge void where our earth and all the other planets live, including everything in the universe beyond the top of the Earth’s atmosphere – moon, sun, stars, milky way, black holes, etc.

The Sun is over 300000 times larger than earth and the only source of solar energy on earth. Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system. Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are the gaseous planets, with rings on them, while earth is the only planet that supports life on it. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Earth have moons.

The ISS, International Space Station, is an artificial satellite orbiting the Earth. This satellite is commanded by the United States, Russia, Japan and Canada and it is the largest artificial body in the orbit that can often be seen with the naked eye from Earth.

USA, Russia, Canada, Japan, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania and India have space stations where all space activities are monitored and regulated.

Astronauts are the scientists who study and visit space in rockets. They wear a special space suit which protects them from the harsh environment of outer space. The first person to travel in space was Yuri Gagarin in 1961.While the first person on moon was Neil Armstrong in 1969. Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to step on moon in 1984.

Space science is continuously developing as the universe is so huge that it has yet not been explored completely.

Musical Therapy

There is no doubt that music has the ability to impact the human body. After all, we respond to a beat by tapping to the rhythm, more than we respond to a flashing light or image.
Music therapy benefits patients of all ages: from using lullabies to help the development of premature babies to playing big band songs to boost elderly Alzheimer patients’ spirits and appetites. It really does not matter what music is used, although classical music is thought to be more relaxing to the human body.
Music, both vocal and instrumental, is considered to be of divine origin and is closely identified with the Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The Goddess Saraswati, depicted with Veena in hand, is venerated by all students and performers of Indian music as the divine patron of music and learning.
Similarly in the Hindu mythology, Krishna, by means of his flute, fills himself and the universe with bliss. He distracts everyone and everything from normal activity and enchants them to revel in ecstasy. His music explodes upon the world and society insisting that all else be forgotten. It is time, it proclaims, to join in his symphony of joy, to frolic in the forest, to scamper in play, to realize every dream that one has ever dreamed in his world of infinite possibility.

Krishna and Radha,
Rama and Sita,
They are our tradition,
And preserving it is our mission.
We should respect it,
We should honour it,
We should protect it,
And we should follow it.
Many generations have passed,
But we must remember mythology till last,
Our tradition is fading,
So we must start it’s mending.
Ramayana and Mahabharata,
Vishnu Puran and Gita,
They are our traditional books,
And are more spiritual than they look.
With technology and science,
India has taken rise,
We have forgotten mythology,
In this world of technology.
