What is Heaven or Hell?

Most of the religions which exist today believes in a concept of Heaven or Hell. Some believe that if we live a life of goodness, then we will go to Heaven or else to Hell. Some one else believes if we do what is prescribed in holy texts we go to Heaven.

But what is the Heaven or Hell in reality? Is there some place outside this earth where we will travel once dead? Stories intended to fantasize believes so. Even if anybody believes this way, they are guided by immature thoughts of childhood or they have not seriously thought about it. After all all religions have come to existence to make our lives more meaningful which science could not always answer.

Based on Upanishads and some reasoning I am writing this. I may err in my reasoning but I believe that Upanishads can't err just because it is time tested approach to illuminate oneself. The role of Upanishads has been to spread thought to everybody who have not thought otherwise. For instance the Katha Upanishad (Pronounced Katoupanishad) talks about a boy talking to death god (Yama) and understanding what the fuzz is all about. Every Upanishad talks about certain aspects of life.

Condensed Ramayana

Ayodhya, now in Uttar Pradesh was ruled by a King named Dasharatha centuries ago. He did not have any children. Sage Rishyashringa performed Purtrakameshti for the king. He had three queens and all of them gave birth to 4 children, Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrugnan.

After their education in gurukul Sage Viswamitra took Rama and Lakshmana with him. Rama killed demon Tadaka who was disturbing Sage Viswamitras prayers. Sage Viswamitra took Rama and Lakshmana to Kingdom of Janaka. There Rama was married to Sita, Lakshmana married to Urmila. Bharata and Shatrugna was married to Maandavi and Shrutakeerthi who were daughters of younger brother of King Janaka.

Kaikeyi was mother of Bharata. Manthara, her servant convinced her if Bharatha was to be made king Rama had to be sent to forest. Kaikeyi demanded the same with Dasharatha, and he had no option but to sent Rama to forest for 14 years.

Our emails are safe, but what about...

We live in a strange world. We see lot of surprises, we live among such surprises, till one day we realize it.

Well here is the surprise for you. Our email accounts be it Yahoo or Gmail offers 2 step authentication to prevent somebody just knowing our username or password can hack in and destroy our digital presence. But do your bank offers the same privilege?

Most of the banks don't do. Well at least not for logging in. Only when RBI mandated the same, the banks without willingness implemented the 2-Step authentication for the transactions that you do.
