Messages and Songs: The Nobel-pious Flowing Offerings
01 – 28 May 2019 / 20

And Narad slowly answered to the queen:
“What help is in prevision to the driven?
Safe doors cry opening near, the doomed pass on.
A future knowledge is an added pain,
A torturing burden and a fruitless light
On the enormous scene that Fate has built.”

01 May is observed as Better Speech and Hearing Month. Narada is the messenger amongst gods and divine beings. He is mentioned in Mahabharata, written by Vyasa who lived in Haridwar.

Narada recited Srimad Bhagavatam on the banks of the Ganges, near the sacred place — Haridwar. Great sages like Bhrigu, Vasistha, Gautama, Medhatithi, Markandeya, Dattatreya and Pippalada came to Haridwar to listen to the Srimad Bhagavatam being recited. Sacred rivers were present too, as were mountains like the Himalayas.

Rabindranath Tagore received the Nobel Prize for literature for his work 'Gitanjali' that was partly composed in the Uttarakhand state to which Haridwar belongs. He was the first non-European to receive this prize.

Ganga Dussehra also known as Gangavataran, is the day when Ganges descended from heaven to earth, just near Haridwar. This has influenced the culture of India. The first sound picture in India 'Gangavataran', was made on this theme, about a decade after Hollywood.
