চরিত্র-গঠন ও মানসিক উন্নতি-সুভাষচন্দ্র বসু (1926)

ভয় জয় করার উপায় শক্তিসাধনা। দুর্গা, কালী প্রভৃতি মূর্ত্তি শক্তির রূপবিশেষ। শক্তির যে কোন রূপ মনে মনে কল্পনা করিয়া তাঁহার নিকট শক্তি প্রার্থনা করিলে এবং তাঁহার চরণে মনের দুর্ব্বলতাও মলিনতা বালস্বরূপ প্রদান করিলে মানুষ শক্তিলাভ করিতে পারে। আমাদের মধ্যে অনন্ত শক্তি নিহিত হইয়াছে, সেই শক্তির বোধন করিতে হইবে। পূজার উদ্দেশ্য—মনের মধ্যে শক্তির বোধন করা। প্রত্যহ শক্তিরূপ ধ্যান করিয়া শক্তিকে প্রার্থনা করিবে এবং পঞ্চেন্দ্রিয় ও সকল রিপুকে তাঁহার চরণে নিবেদন করিবে। পঞ্চপ্রদীপ অর্থ পঞ্চেন্দ্রিয়। এই পঞ্চেন্দ্রিয়ের সাহায্যে মায়ের পূজা হইয়া থাকে। আমাদের চক্ষু আছে তাই আমরা ধূপ, গুগ্‌গুল প্রভৃতি সুগন্ধি জিনিষ দিয়া পূজা করি ইত্যাদি।

When to Hold, When to Fold, and When to Reshuffle: The Art of Decisionmaking on a Multi-Member Court

The reasons why a judge writes separately vary, depending on whether the contemplated opinion will be a concurrence or a dissent.

Beggars in London-George Orwell-1929

How many are there in London? No-one knows exactly, probably several thousand. Perhaps ten thousand in the worst part of the year. Anyway, it is likely that among every four hundred Londoners there is one beggar who is living at the expense of the other three hundred and ninety-nine.

अर्जुन उवाच। दण्डः शास्ति प्रजाः सर्वा दण्ड एवाभिरक्षति। दण्‍डः सुप्तेषु जागर्ति दण्डं धर्मं विदुर्बुधाः।। दण्डः संरक्षते धर्मं तथैवार्यं जनाधिप। कामं संरक्षते दण्डस्त्रिवर्गो दण्ड उच्यते।। दण्डेन रक्ष्यते धान्यं धनं दण्डेन रक्ष्यते। एतद्विद्वानुपादाय स्वभावं […]

Burning of females on funeral piles of their husbands – UK Parliament Debate-20/06/1821
