Remembering The First President Of India: Dr. Rajendra Prasad

On the birth anniversary of Dr. Rajendra Prasad, we remember him through some of the historic photographs from his life.

Rajendra Prasad

More rarely than often, there comes a national leader, who leave an everlasting imprint in the history of a nation. He molds the present of the country to shape the destiny of its people. Dr. Rajendra Prasad was one such leader.

Elected as the President of India, at the dawn of Independence, he is the only person to hold the highest office twice. This extraordinary story of one of the stalwart freedom fighters started in the most ordinary circumstances. He was born on 3rd December 1884 in the Zeradei area of Bihar. A lawyer by qualification, he practiced law in Calcutta and Patna High Courts. In the backdrop of freedom struggle, he slowly entered politics as a volunteer during his college days. However, during the Champaran Satyagraha, he participated in the movement actively and also renounced his legal practice during the Non-Cooperation Movement.

Today on his birth anniversary, we remember him through some of the rarest photographs of his life.

50 Meal Pack Challenge: Our Chance To Make A Difference

Come forward to support the most vulnerable section during this crisis with the #50MealPackChallenge, in association with The Talented Indian.

50 meal pack challenge

Here is our golden opportunity to suit up as thoughtful citizens. We can make our community happier and healthier, by playing our part for those who aren’t as privileged as we are. Indeed, it is the one thing we can do as we are sitting in the comfort of our homes, for those who have been robbed of their livelihood.

While the world is battling COVID 19 pandemic, many around us are waging a brutal war against hunger. At this difficult time, we can be a part of #50MealPackChallenge, a food donation programme, geared towards the precise objective of feeding the underprivileged, the poor and the migrant workers during the current draconian period of lockdown following the outbreak of Coronavirus.

An initiative launched in collaboration with NAFED and the Delhi Police, #50MealPackChallenge, as the tag suggests, is a meal package of uncooked ingredients.

You can make donations in-kind, in the form of #50MealPacks which is a meal package that contains uncooked dry ingredients like Dry Dal Mix, Dry Khichdi Mix, Dry Daal Mix or Daal Chana Mix. You can also donate Rs. 1100, which contributes for 2 #50MealPacks, or more (in multiples of Rs 1100, like Rs 2200, 5500, 11000 and so on), directly into the account of NAFED (a nodal agency, under Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India), following which a receipt will be issued for the donation.

Of you, we ask: Can you passively behold as hunger strikes the vulnerable in the society? Let us not turn a blind eye to those who have completely identified with our land, for they too have rendered their services for our community.

Let #50MealPackChallenge be the starting point for us to level up and to become an active partner in the promotion of healthier living standard.

We, at The Talented Indian, are proud to be associated with this noble initiative, encourage everyone to participate in it wholeheartedly and celebrate the true spirit of community and humanity.

Beyond everything, life isn’t always about having it all; it is about sharing all that we have.

Corona Virus: A Short Film On This Eye Opening Pandemic

Corona – End of the world, is a thought provoking short film, it perfectly fits the current situation and provides an overview of the future.

Published

Corona Virus

Amid this unfortunate pandemic that has struck the world, many people are contemplating over the philosophical attributes of this disaster. Maybe its karma, maybe nature is restoring its peace and paying us back for the exploitation that humans have inflicted on it, maybe the real virus is not COVID 19, but the human race itself. The terror created by this microorganism has forced people to sit at their homes and think about their actions. The same is the theme of this short film titled, Corona Virus- COVID 19.

The movie, set in 2049, advocates the idea of sustainable development, of using our resources in a way that we don’t compromise the ability of our future generations to meet their needs. Written and directed by Dushyant Kapoor, the film begins with a man digging up the earth for a few drops of water. The scorching heat leaves him exhausted; his lips are parched and his throat is dry with thirst. He has visions of his friend with whom he talks about the misused and exploited state of the earth. This scene is subsequently followed by others which raise questions on the objectionable treatment of nature and environment by humans, many of whom were killed by COVID 19 and some who fled the earth to Mars.

Corona Virus, a thought provoking film, perfectly fits the current situation and provides an overview of the future, the disastrous state which might be, if things and actions are not controlled in time.

Throwback Thursday With The Tabla Maestro: Zakir Hussain

Today, on Throwback Thursday, we celebrate the legendary tabla maestro, Zakir Hussain through some of his memorable performances.

Published

Zakir Hussain

Indian classical music is believed to be one of the toughest and most challenging musical forms prevalent in the present-day world. It is very often related to ancient myths and has an element of spirituality associated with it. It is pious and holds a much more deeper meaning to it as compared to modern-day music. One of the master practitioners of Hindustani classical music is Ustad Zakir Hussain, the very famous tabla player who is also a composer, music producer and film actor.

Born to the famous tabla player Ustad Allah Rakha, he had an inclination towards music since the onset of his life and was considered a child prodigy when he gave his first performance at the age of seven. His mastery over this art, however, was attained by a lot of hard-work and commitment. As a child, he rehearsed with his father from 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM early morning. Pretty tough, isn’t it? He worked with other famous instrumentalists like sitar maestro Ravi Shankar and soon began his international tours with up to 150 concerts a year. He featured in the famous album “Planet Drum” wherein he had a chance to work with outstanding drummers from all over the world. The album won the prestigious Grammy Award twice, first for “Best World Music album” and “Best Contemporary World Music Album”. He has been honoured with awards of national importance like Padma Shree and Padma Bhushan for his remarkable work in the field of music.

Indians like Zakir Hussain manifest the beauties of Indian culture and heritage and play a key role in demonstrating it to the world. His truthfulness, loyalty and commitment towards his art makes him shine out as a great tabla artist, not just in India but around the globe.

Today, on Throwback Thursday, we celebrate this legendary tabla maestro through some of his memorable performances.

वृन्दावन की होली लठमार,

मुबारख हो होली का त्योहार|

The festival of colours is here to set the mood of life in celebration and joy. Mythologically, there are numerous legends associated with it, like the tradition of burning Holika or the ‘Holika dahan’ or celebration of the death of Ogress Pootana who tried to kill infant Krishna by feeding poisonous milk to it and many more. Eventually, it signifies the power and victory of truth, morality and goodness over evil.
