Celebrating the true essence of festival season

One of the most auspicious times in Hindu mythology is here. As we celebrate the victory of good over evil with Dusshera on 14th October, 2013, it will soon give way to the arrival of Lord Rama to Ayodhya during Diwali , the festival of lights. As entire country looks forward to these occasions with excitement and anticipation, these festivals also brings with them the lessons of life that lead to path of contentment and fulfilment. Here’s how:

1.       1.Planning: One cannot achieve one’s goals in life based on desires or skills alone. It requires planning at every stage of life. Lord Rama conquered Lanka and achieved victory over mighty Ravana on the basis of careful strategy, addition to tremendous skill & power.

2.       2. Teamwork: Lord Rama didn’t conquer Lanka alone. He had a team that was focused on the single goal, conquering Lanka. The team supported him at every stage of the task and provided valuable information & inputs when needed.

3.      3.  Helping others: Though Lord Rama was supreme, he always went that extra mile in helping others & expecting nothing in return. The good deeds always found a way to return to him & help him in a time of need.

4.     4.  Respect lives: Lord Rama knew he would defeat Ravana, but he first gave him many chances to mend his ways & settle the issue amicably. He knew quarrels, fights & wars are the order of last resort and should be avoided as much as possible.

5.     5.  Values: He always gave family & family values prime importance. Be it respect towards elders, women or people younger to him, he was a symbol of righteousness, which helped him achieved the greatness in life he deserved.

Hence, apart from dedicating certain days to the festivals, their essence should be celebrated on a daily basis by applying the lessons to our lives and achieving a life of contentment, peaceful harmony & co-existence.

Life wins during Cyclone Phailin

As the nation braced for Cyclone Phailin and thousands were evacuated ahead of the cyclone’s destructive intensity, ZHL staff in Odisha put their Durga Puja celebrations on hold to respond to the increased need for emergency services.

On Sunday, October 13th, 2013, ZHL crew carried 36 pregnant women from flood relief camps to hospital for further medical attention. Amidst the chaos that day, a baby born at 4:30 a.m. in the devastated Ganjam district was a silver lining for the families and crew. We named him Phailin.

ZHL is proud and grateful for our Odisha team. They are real-life heroes.
