दीपावली का अर्थ है दीपों की पंक्ति। दीपावली शब्द ‘दीप’ एवं ‘आवली’ की संधि से बना है। आवली अर्थात पंक्ति। इस प्रकार दीपावली शब्द का अर्थ है, दीपों की पंक्ति। भारतवर्ष में मनाए जानेवाले सभी त्यौहारों में दीपावली का सामाजिक और धार्मिक दोनों दृष्टि से अत्यधिक महत्त्व है। इसे दीपोत्सव भी कहते हैं। ‘तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय’ अर्थात् ‘अंधेरे से ज्योति अर्थात प्रकाश की ओर गमन’।

दीप जलाने की प्रथा के पीछे अलग-अलग कारण या कहानियां हैं। हिंदू मान्यताओं में राम भक्तों के अनुसार कार्तिक अमावस्या को भगवान श्री रामचंद्रजी चौदह वर्ष का वनवास काटकर तथा असुरी वृत्तियों के प्रतीक रावणादि का संहार करके अयोध्या लौटे थे।

तब अयोध्यावासियों ने राम के राज्यारोहण पर दीपमालाएं जलाकर महोत्सव मनाया था। इसीलिए दीपावली हिंदुओं के प्रमुख त्योहारों में से एक है। कृष्ण भक्तिधारा के लोगों का मत है कि इस दिन भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने अत्याचारी राजा नरकासुर का वध किया था। इस नृशंस राक्षस के वध से जनता में अपार हर्ष फैल गया और प्रसन्नता से भरे लोगों ने घी के दीए जलाए। एक पौराणिक कथा के अनुसार विंष्णु ने नरसिंह रुप धारणकर हिरण्यकश्यप का वध किया था तथा इसी दिन समुद्रमंथन के पश्चात लक्ष्मी व धन्वंतरि प्रकट हुए।

नेपालियों के लिए यह त्योहार इसलिए महान है क्योंकि इस दिन से नेपाल संवत में नया वर्ष शुरू होता है। पंजाब में जन्मे स्वामी रामतीर्थ का जन्म व महाप्रयाण दोनों दीपावली के दिन ही हुआ। इन्होंने दीपावली के दिन गंगातट पर स्नान करते समय 'ओम' कहते हुए समाधि ले ली। महर्षि दयानन्द ने भारतीय संस्कृति के महान जननायक बनकर दीपावली के दिन अजमेर के निकट अवसान लिया। इन्होंने आर्य समाज की स्थापना…...

...accepting another Indian language for the purposes of inter-stale and state-centre-communications, they were not prepared to submit to the hegemony of another Indian language. In that context, the word 'official' in the expression 'official language' snacked for imposition and they were not prepared to brook any imposition whatsoever. Hence 'official' had to yield place to 'link' which was found to be more in accord with the spirit of the times. The context in which the problem has to be considered has radically changed since 1950 when the founding fathers laid down official policy in the matter. At that time, the problem did not appear to be so intractable. The leaders of the national movement had almost unanimously endorsed the choice of Hindi as the official language of India. They were not, however, unmindful of the diffi­culties involved in a sudden change-over. Therefore, they made provision that English should continue to be used for all official purposes for 15 years after the introduction of the constitution, i.e. up to 1965. Even after that, the Parliament was given the option to extend the period, if necessary. All these precautions were designed to cushion the shock of change by making it a gradual process. Even then, within a few years, the proposed change became the subject of nation-wide debate which has several time assumed the proportions of a law and order problem. In the main, it was a direct consequence of the ruling party's disproportionate......

The two patterns are congregation who came together for the ritual performed by the Pundits( priests) and the book that priest themselves distributed to the people.

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing.

Homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema

...HS-404 Homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema Abstract:India is a country with vibrant popular culture. Nowhere is the collective consciousness of the nation probably better essayed than in the cinema, which is viewed with passionate enthusiasm. Taking Popular Hindi Cinema as a mainstay of Indian culture, this article tries to create a link between the depiction of homosexuality in Popular Hindi Cinema and the society.
