Kuch dhyaan nahi rehta,
Insaan mohabbat mein,

We get so bogged down by the drudgery of everyday life that we do not find the time to nurture the relationships that mean the most to us. We get carried away with our own idea of success and happiness and forget what matters the most are our relationships. We work hard to make life more comfortable and stress all week about work. But we're not robots; everybody needs a breather to recharge and to relax. That is what Sundays are for. It is the day to refuel your soul and be grateful for your blessings, to take a deep breath and enjoy your family and friends. A well-spent Sunday with loved ones will give a week on contentment. Know somebody that needs reminding of this simple thought? Gift them our bamboo notebook engraved with this beautiful shayari.
Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah Tat Savitur Vareniyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat
Gayatri Mantra is a universal prayer enshrined in the Rigveda (Mandala 3.62.10). It is a prayer to the Sun Deity. In the mantra, the Divine (Sun deity) is praised, and then meditated upon in reverence and finally an appeal is made to awaken and strengthen the intellect, the discriminating faculty of man, as the Sun enlightens all realms (physical, mental and spiritual). The Gayatri is considered the essence of the Vedas. She bestows pure thoughts on anyone who worships Her. She is the embodiment of all Goddesses. Mother Gayatri nourishes and protects every being and channelizes our senses in the proper direction. Thus, Gayatri Mantra is a complete prayer for protection, nourishment and finally, liberation.

Amar surguli paay choron, ami pai ne tomare.
Batash bohe mori mori, ar bendhe rekho na tori
Esho esho paar hoye, mor hridoy maajhare.

Anondomoy nirob raater nibir andhare.

Gaane gaane niechile churi kore.
Samayo je taar halo gato
Nisiseser taarar mato
Ses kore dao siuliphuler maron sathe.
