Life is Priceless

Image Courtesy:

Every life on this earth is doing every small thing to struggle for life. Why we always say our life is Priceless?
Spiritually, When anyone take birth on this earth he is coming through a very long jorney.He have to complete 84 births of each and every creature available on this earth means, if today you are taking birth as a human being then it is coming after 84 births. Isn’t it amazing...?
So if we are getting such a wonderful precious life after so many birth then I think our life is really very very priceless.
Any alive thing can feel, can do anything than any lifeless thing. As we are human, we can do each and every thing that is available on this earth.
So we should take our life very positively and achieve targets rather than just giving up for failure. I don’t understand why people use their so precious lives for human bomb and just destroy it, why they don’t understand the value of their lives, why people suicide themselves? Everybody should take life positively, and get the most out of it. They will not get 100% of their life but will defiantly get 30% rather than just ending their priceless and precious lives.

Rains In Roha

Beautiful river, down from the sky
Beauty, as the clouds do cry
The sacred bringer of all life
Water does calm all strife
Rain, quencher of the flame
Rain, Rain, I shout the name
Rain Rain, Beautiful rain.

-Aidan Ross
Everybody, 90 % people likes Rainy season among all the seasons. Beauty of real nature, you can feel in rains. Nature shows real colors from its palette. Poets write paeans in praise of the beauty of the rainy scene.

Rainy season in Roha is the real beauty .You can not just stop yourself to come again and again to Roha for feeling the beauty of rain, once you visit Roha in rains. And this rainy season I felt the same magic of rains.

Roha is small town surrounded by hills. So during rainy season it seems a real green.Mostly in July it rains heavily in Roha, like cats and dogs. This kind of rains falls continuously 2-3 days without break.

But still routine of Rohekars never stops. People goto the offices, Children goto the schools, markets are open and you will find same picture while raining heavily as in other seasons.and here i find the real spirit of Rohekars. They are used to heavily rains and clouds busting .Clouds busting is very common here.

Another most beautiful thing i find in Roha is Kundalika river, river is full of water through out year. :) Beauty of kundalika differs in seasons to seasons, but in monsoon river looks awesome.

And the another thing i would like to write is the waterfall that flows behind KES High school ,at foot of kalasgiri hill.i know that each and every Rohekar have been played in that waterfall once of his/her life . :)) And they are having some sweet memories with that waterfall.

(Isn't it Awesom!!)

But after all every things in the world have 2 sides.Nature is nature.Nature also shows its danger face when rains falls continuously for 2 days.Rohekars always face flood in roha in every july or august. Always every year they faces 3-4 times flood in Roha.

(Water everywhere...)

River kundalika flows from the heart of Roha city, two parts of city is connected by bridge. It goes under water of kundalika in flood.Kundalika crosses danger level 2-3 times every year in rains. This river flows towards Arabian see 28 Km away from Roha. So high tide and low tide plays very important role in flood.

I think if you visit Roha in Rains, you don’t have to go anywhere else. I always used to come Roha to enjoy and remind monsoon that i left behind. I wish, if I born on earth again, it would be in Roha.
