Here are 5 life learning lessons from Bhagavad Gita which will surely guide you:

Everything happens, it happens for a reason

One should always remember that everything which has happened in the past was for a reason, what is happening in present is for a reason and what will happen in the future is also for a reason. Every action you take, every work you do is always related to a reason. The above-stated lesson emphasizes the continuance of accepting the ups and downs of life. Don’t repent of the past or worry about the future. Be optimistic and have faith.

Understand that change is the universal law

The best illustration of the fact that change is the universal law, and nothing is permanent is the example of day turning into the night and into the day again. Nothing is permanent, never expect what you have today will always be there with you. People, surroundings, society everything changes with time. One should always embrace the changes and should always try to accept them.

You are born empty-handed and will go empty-handed

Nothing in this world belongs to me or you. The whole universe and everything which lies in between is of almighty. People tend to get attached to materialistic things so much that they forget that they can not take those things with them to their grave. You should always be satisfied with whatever you have and should always try to do good deeds. There is no use in doing evil things.

Be fearless

Fear is one of the basic emotions that everyone has with them. Fear can be related to anything like it can be for materialistic things and can also be in your mind. Fear in other words is known as the doubts in your ability. Never Shrink in fear, fight to the last, and stand your ground. Being fearless not only helps you to concentrate on your goal but also helps you bring success.

Manage your anger

Anger causes delusion. It is one of the three main gates to hell. Anger destroys our ability to reason leading to chaos. It no longer serves a good purpose it decreases the clarity of thoughts and distracts from our goals. One must try to stay calm and handle the situation.

Bhagavad Gita has always guided the lost, have answered the confused, and has provided wisdom to all.

Diwali is known for gifting and jewellery tops the list, with the focus on buying gold and diamonds.

Diwali is known for gifting and jewellery tops the list, with the focus on buying gold and diamonds. ORRA jewellery, a trusted diamond jewellery brand is gearing up for the festive and bridal season. As they open their 50th store in the country, IANSlife caught up with Dipu Mehta, Managing Director, ORRA, to find out how the company plans to ramp up its now 50 company-owned and operated stores, expanding its retail presence in Tier-1 and 2 cities and target the millennial segment.

Read Excerpts:

Q: The brand is expanding in tier-2 and tier-3 cities, is brick and mortar the way forward to create a presence in this segment?

A: ORRA currently is expanding in metros plus tier-2 cities. But we aren't opening stores in any new markets. We are only opening in markets where we are already present. We are increasing the number of stores within cities as the demand for jewellery buying has also increased. Currently, we are present in 25 cities with 50 stores, and by the end of the month, we would be launching another seven stores.
Also with a category like jewellery, it is important to have brick and mortar stores as the customers like to see and hold higher value jewellery before purchasing. Jewellery buying is an important decision to the customers and having a store gives them that assurance.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting.
