काही कथा - 11

नेटवर वाचलेल्या काही प्रेरणा देणारया , नितिकथा तुमच्यासाठी !

अ‍ॅडॉल्फ हिटलरच्या नावाने एक गोष्ट सांगितली जाते. एकदा हिटलर आपल्या कार्यालयाच्या ग्रंथालयात काही पुस्तकं चाळत होता. एका उंच कपाटाच्या वरच्या कप्प्यातील एका पुस्तकानं त्याचं लक्ष वेधलं आणि ते काढण्यासाठी त्यानं टाचा वर केल्या, पण त्याचा हात पुस्तकापर्यंत पोहोचतच नव्हता. 

त्याचे प्रयत्न सुरूच होते. 

त्याच्यासोबतचा एक अधिकारी ते पाहून नम्रपणे म्हणाला, ‘‘थांबा सर, मी काढून देतो ते पुस्तक. मी तुमच्यापेक्षा मोठा आहे!’’ 

हिटलरने ते शब्द ऐकले. त्याच्या चेहऱ्यावर तुच्छतेची एक रेषा गडद झाली. डोळ्यांत काहीसा संताप उतरला आणि तो रागाने त्या अधिकाऱ्याला म्हणाला, 

‘‘उंच म्हण, मोठा नव्हे!’’

एकदा गांधीजिंना विचारले "बापू आपणास अस का वाटते कि आपण इंग्रजांशी यशस्वी लढा देवू शकाल ?" 

गांधीजी हसले आणि म्हणाले "आपण जिंकूच कारण आपण आपल्या चार टप्प्यांच्या लढाईच्या तिसऱ्या टप्प्यात आहोत." 

" चार टप्प्यांची लढाई ? " 

" हो, प्रथम ते तुमच्याकडे दुर्लक्ष करतात. 
मग ते तुम्हाला हसण्यावारी नेतात. 
तिसऱ्या टप्प्यात ते तुमच्याशी युद्ध पुकारतात. 

चौथा टप्पा - तुम्ही लढाई जिंकता. "

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c." Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replased with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replased by "f". This will make words like fotograf" 20 persent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by " v".

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

Wandering Destination : Koilighugar waterfall

Wandering Destination : Koilighughar waterfall

Koilighughar is one of the serene and tranquil location of a waterfall, lesser known spot which is hidden in the Chhuikhanch' forest dominated by Mahua and Saal trees near Lakhanpur. Koilighughar waterfall is around 100 ft on the river Ahiraj later to merge into the Mahanadi river. It is said that Inside the fall there is a Shivalingam known as Maheswarnath. 

The lingam is submerged in water and is not ordinarily visible. For the benefit of the pilgrims, another Shivalingam has been created just outside the waterfall. Worshippers, in plenty, come here to praise the lords. The place of lingam is unique due to its location. Perhaps the most scenic I have ever seen. Beware of the monkeys who are daring enough to snatch anything from your hand, particularly bags.

To enjoy the front view of this beautiful little beast, one should cross the river, go left and climb down a shallow cut through the boulders. The best season to enjoy the thick forest and water flow is from October to December. Koilighugar has an annual fair on the occasion of Sivaratri.

An ashram of Soham swami is located on the premises where the priests of the temples live.

Driving from Gobindpur to Koilighugar through forest


How to reach:

On driving from Jharsuguda, drive towards Raigarh on SH 49. From Gobindpur, located at about 20 Km from Belpahar, take a right turn and drive for about 6 km through the forest to reach Koilighugar Waterfall.

Road from Jharsuguda till Gobindpur is newly built in 2016 and is very wide and smooth. At Belpahar railway crossing chokes the traffic especially due to the heavy transport vehicles. While returning to Jharsuguda make sure that you cross the railway crossing before 3.30 PM. After 3.30 PM, all the trucks are released and will make the drive difficult. 

Raigarh is about 40 Km if continued on same highway 49.
