Asked if the entertainment sector needs to inculcate the teachings of the Geeta, she replied: "The Geeta is needed worldwide, not just in India or Bollywood or School". Unsplash

Actress Mouni Roy feels the Bhagwad Geeta must be made a part of academic curriculum across India. The actress adds that she turned to the Hindu scripture during lockdown and, having discovered its core value, believes it should be inculcated at school level.

“I read Bhagwad Geeta Ka Saar in childhood but didn’t understand it until now. See, one of my friends started reading the Bhagwad Geeta and I also joined the class — this is before lockdown — and I didn’t make many classes due to hectic schedule. But during lockdown, I was very religious. I think it should be a part of our school curriculum. I genuinely feel that it is more than a religious book. It is ‘life ka saar’ (crux of life), eternal knowledge, and it is basic knowledge. If you have a question in your head, the Geeta has the answer,” said Mouni.


Asked if the entertainment sector needs to inculcate the teachings of the Geeta, she replied: “The Geeta is needed worldwide, not just in India or Bollywood or School. In India, it could change the orthodox thought process in families. We talk about ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. Instead it should be ‘Beta Padhao, Beta Bachao’, I think society is in need of this knowledge or awareness.”

“We literally live in ignorance, and we actually come from a country of the Vedas and the Upanishad, yet we don’t do anything. We are sitting on a gold mine and we don’t do anything it. The entertainment industry is a stressful place, you don’t have the concept of Saturdays and Sundays, a 9-to-5 job, and we are constantly consumed in our minds and thoughts. So, for sure, the Geeta is needed here, but having said that I think (be it) the rural, the urban, and the metros, everyone is in dire need of the Bhagwad Geeta’s teachings,” added Mouni.

Mouni will be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s fantasy action adventure “Brahmastra” alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Nagarjuna, with Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo. Talking about working with such a talented cast, Mouni said: “Ayan Mukerji is a brilliant mind. He is all heart and I think he has given this project his life. If I remember it right, he told me that he has been working on this project for almost seven to eight years now. He is God’s child, for sure.”

“Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are fire on screen and they are beautiful human beings on sets. So, I feel very lucky. With Brahmastra, I got to work with Nagarjuna, and obviously Amitabh Bachchan — he is the greatest. I cannot forget the day I met Shah Rukh Khan. So, it’s like a dream you’d never thought would come true, and it has come true,” she summed up. (IANS/KR)

Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
