A Great History

Do you use Google or another search engine using the Internet Explorer browser and noticed that past searches you’ve performed were displayed below the search box? Don’t blame the search engine. It’s your browser that’s keeping the record.

Fortunately, deleting your past searches is easy. To understand, let’s first know how to access the past searches or search history list, use Google as an example.

For example, One person who looked up the word “Cheat Codes or dating” on Google. He was then concerned that when he went back to Google, this word appeared in his past searches list. That means anyone using his computer would see that this was something he’d searched in past.
Assuming you’ve got Internet Explorer and have searched at Google before, you should be able to click once in the Google search box and get a “drop down” box to appear, listing all the things you’ve searched for in the past at Google and you can start typing a query, and you’ll be shown any queries that contain the first letters that you’ve typed.

If you want to remove all your past searches, in one go. Of course, if you do this, you’ll also delete any other form-based information that Internet Explorer may have saved. To do this, in Internet Explorer 5 or higher, select Tools from the menu and then Internet Options and then choose the Content tab. Then, look for the button that is AutoComplete. Click on the button which will make the AutoComplete Settings window appear. In this, click on the Clear Forms button to delete all your stored form entries.

If you want to delete a particular query from drop down list of past searches. Use the arrow keys on your computer keyboard to select or highlight the particular entry. Then, highlight the entry using your mouse but don’t click on it. Once the entry has been highlighted, press the Delete button on your computer keyboard.

If you use Google Toolbar for search then the techniques above won’t work to remove your past searches from the toolbar. You will need to click on the Google logo next to the Google Toolbar’s search box, then select Clear Search History from the drop-down box that appears.

Raksha Bandhan
August 7, 2006, 2:59 pm
Filed under: Festivals

Our Hindu festivals are mostly based on legends and aim at propitiating deities who are believed to be endowed with supernatural powers. Rakhi Purnima or Raksha Bandhan is one of the most popular festivals in the country and is celebrated with lot of zest and enthusiasm.

Sravani is an ancient Vedic festival traditionally associated with the Brahmins on which day they change their sacred thread. Both Raksha Bandhan and Sravani are celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Shravan (August).Rakshabandhan or Rakhi the more popular of the two festivals is a Hindu sister’s day when brothers and sisters reaffirm their bonds of affections.Sisters tie colourful threads or rakhis on their brother’s wrists. The brothers in turn promise to protect their sisters and give them gifts. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in different forms in different areas and it is also known by the names like rakhi, rakhri and saluno.

Rakshabandhan is a very special Indian festival, the celebration of the special bond between a brother and a sister. Sisters tie a special band on their brothers’ wrist on the day of Rakhi as a mark of affection. This thread, which pulsates with sisterly love and sublime sentiments, is rightly called the ‘Rakhi’.

It is a way of telling your brother that you’ll never forget how he teased you about everything, yet fought with those who spoke a single word against you and how you bid him farewell with a smile, and only he saw those tear drops in your eyes.

Around mid-August, on Shravan Purnima, Hindus all over celebrate Raksha Bandhan. “Raksha” means protection, “bandhan” means bound or binding. The festival is also known as Balev.

As per the traditions, the sister on this day prepares the pooja thali with diya, roli, chawal and rakhis. She worships the deities, ties Rakhi to the brother(s) and wishes for their well-being. The brother in turn acknowledges the love with a promise to be by the sisters’ side through the thick and thin and gives her a token gift. Raksha Bandhan tightens the bong of love between the sister and brother.

The practice of tying thread was prevalent among the Rajputs and our history is full of instances related to the significance of this tradition. At the time of war when the brave Rajput soldiers prepared to go to the battlefield, the women folk followed the ritual of tying a thread around their wrist after applying a dash of vermilion powder on their forehead. This was considered a sign of good omen and the ladies believed that it would protect their men from the enemy’s blow and bring them victory. Today children and women all around the country filling the soilders with the zest to protect them against the dangers of the enemy tie Rakhi on the wrists of soldiers.

Rakshabandhan if taken in true sense has a much broader perspective; the festival encompasses true sense of peace and brotherhood. The values propagated by the occasion if inculcated by all human beings can bring the much-needed relief from the ongoing violence and mistrust.The rich Indian Mythology provides a religious reason to celebrate the day in a specific way. Many epics are related to the day and the origin of Raksha Bandhan. The festival finds a mention in most of the epics and its origin can be traced back to the mythological Pouranik times.

Raksha-bandhan symbolises the deep love between brothers and sisters. The sanctity of this festival is acknowledged right from the vedic times to this our modern times, when we are living in thoroughly industrialised times in which our age-old and precious values of life are falling apart. Even if a girl ties Rakhi around the wrist of a stranger, both of them from the auspicious moment, look upon each other as brother and sister and become closer in this pure relationship than other blood relations.

During the Freedom Struggle, many young women tied rakhis around the wrists of young men and made them pledge their lives, their youth, their careers, their ambitions and even their dreams to the struggle for the freedom of their motherland from the shackles of slavery of British imperialism. It is probably for this very season that the great leader of Bengal, Surendranath Bannerji endeavoured to elevate this important festival of Raksha-Bhandhan to the status of a National Festival.

The Friendship Day is celebrated every year on the first Sunday in August. It has not much history behind except the fact that the US Congress proclaimed this day as the Friendship Day in the year 1935.

It gives a day to be with friends and celebrate together…amidst of our busy schedules.

How important friendship is, this can be demonstrated from the following quotes from history :

  • In the epic ‘Mahabharata’, the Indian mythological hero Krishna demonstrates the many colors of friendship—affection, romance, brotherhood, guidance, protection, intimacy and even teasing. Friendship is all about these and much more.

  • Thus speaks The Bible about the warmest of all bonds—friendship. The Bible, the most primary text of the western civilization, reflects upon friendship as the bond that forms the foundation to human faith, trust and companionship. There are innumerable tales from the Old Testament as well as the New Testament about the value of friendship and how true friendship is a treasure to unearth. Both the versions make a difference between the two broad meanings of friendship—one is a mere acquaintance, the other is a more affectionate relation. These stories and examples have passed into western literary and cultural realms.

  • In the US especially, the gradual disintegration of the family structures has been replaced by the indispensability of friendship—friends are there not only in need but really for all seasons.
