New Celestial Order

New Celestial Order

It has been (finally???) decided that Pluto is no longer a ‘planet’. Planets have been divided into 2 categories: Classical Planets (8) and Dwarf Planets (3..and counting).

Decision to boot out Pluto from the Planet’s category has met with stiff resistance from kids, school teachers and even from renowned ppl in the scientific community.

It took 10 days and voting at last in the recent meet of International Astronomical Union(IAU) to strip off the pluto from its planet’s tag.
If u ask me, Am I Pluto Planet Pro, or Pluto Dwarf Planet Pro, i wud say “How does it matter??”. Pluto by any name is an icy round object.

That in turn gives rise to another question. Am I ” Chetandeep”? Had i been given any other name, i wud have been the same (minus the astro and numero aspects). Even today, if my name is Chetandeep, is the “life force/soul” inside me is referred to by the name “Chetandeep”. Silly questions?? Right…

Regarding Pluto, As somebody said…

“””Everyone agrees that there’s a round object out in space that we call “Pluto.” Nothing whatsoever about Pluto will change if it gets put on a “KBO” list instead of a “planet” list, just as nothing about tomatoes changed when we realized they should be on the “fruit” list instead of the “vegetable” list. Nor would it matter if we called it “Cindy.”

It is what it is, and it will be just fine no matter what we think of it.”””

Nirgun Raakh Liya

Posted by livin on August 23, 2006

I am sure u must have listened to “Nirgun Raakh Liya” – A Shabad sung by Bollywood’s Akshay Kumar.

It’s melodious, soothing and giving peace to mind.

If u havent yet listened to it, or need to download it, plz download the same from here
For the curious, the details and meaning of the shabad are as follows:

Shabad: Nirgun Raakh Liya Santan Ka Sadka

Source: Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

Written by: Guru Arjan Dev Ji (Fifth Guru Of Sikhs, A.D. 1563 -1606)

English Translation of the shabad:

“”I am unworthy, but He has saved me, for the sake of the Saints.

The True Guru has covered by faults; I am such a sinner.

God has covered for me; He is the Giver of the soul, life and peace.

My Lord and Master is Eternal and Unchanging, Ever-present; He is the Perfect Creator, the Architect of Destiny.

Your Praise cannot be described; who can say where You are?

Slave Nanak is a sacrifice to the one who blesses him with the Lord’s Name, even for an instant.””
