Akshaya Tritiya: The Sattu Day

Welcome to the Akshaya Tritiya of this year, the auspicious day for the Hindu and Jain community. Utmost wishes that everyone may cultivate spiritual strength on this auspicious day, this day is also commemorated by the reading of scriptures, special pujas, the family deity worship (Ishta Deb), charities, offering homage to one's ancestors, associated with devotees, feeding Brahmins and poor by organizing Bhandara (Community fiesta) and watering and planting trees. All these activities result in the endurance of material opulence and spiritual awakening. Akshaya Tritiya falls in the Tritiya Tithi of Sukla Paksha of Baishakha month, Baisakha translates to a churning stick, every festival which falls in this month advocates for the purity and spiritual awakening.

Akshaya means something that is beyond the process of eroding, which cannot be destructed, results of the activities performed in this day do not diminish, and good works commenced on this day will summon manifold divine results.

Normally Akshaya Tritiya also marks the birthday of Lord Parshuram as Chiranjeevi Tritiya but this year Parshuram Jayanti and Akshaya Tritiya arrived in consecutive days.  Akshaya Tritiya has a peculiar tradition in Nepal, this is called a Sattu day too. Well, let me explain this ancient beverage today, this is a nutritious mix of ground pulses and cereals. Literally, anything roasted and ground into a fine powder is called Sattu, this typical Sattu is made of barley, chickpea, and other grains and mixed with sugar and water. This is an easy to carry, easy to digest and sturdy food, from the context of Krishna and Sudama to the ancient times and various stages of human civilization, it has been customary to take Sattu on a journey.

The Satya Yuga was formally started from today's Tithi, while the Dwapar Yuga ended immediately after the end of the Mahabharata Yuga and the Treta Yuga also began in this Tithi. This is such an auspicious day that Lord Mahadeva and mother Parwati also got married in this holy day, writer VedaVyas also started to write "Mahabharata" from this day, if you also have any plans to start with, manifest an eternal commitment and give a power punch starting to it.

Inexhaustible love of Patro Patro to its users in Akshay Tritiya.

World Intellectual property day

Nepali society has been growing over the years by considering many physical things like two pieces of land, two tolas of gold, and a pair of oxen as assets. This is how the world has come to this point, the world has fought for the landline from the seeds of pepper, and history stands as a shred of evidence.

Even in our own society, the arguments and the environment can be understood in the incidents and fights where the cows ate the rice plants and the goats ate the vegetable plants at courtyards.

Where is the definition of wealth now only in material things?
Now words, ideas, and various other intellectual elements are being compared and weighed as more intense assets. Now, poets have started carrying the same value as a farmer's plow carries, the lyrics of the lyricist, the lines of the columnist, the voice of the singer, the composition of the musician, the recipe of the food, the mixture of spices are also the exclusive property of the creator. Innovations and creativity must be encouraged, every year April 26th marks World Intellectual Property Right Day when thousands of people around the globe celebrate the role of intellectual property. This day was established by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2000 to raise awareness on how patents, copyrights, trademarks, and designs impact on daily lives and to celebrate creativity and contributions of contributors and creators.

In the creation of the mind, there is both originality and professionalism of the creator and the institutional practice of its protection is discussed today. In today's digital age, the world is flooded with the same stream of ideas and intellect, without the protection of this intellectual right, the value of the creator's creation cannot sustain.

May every story writers sustain from their stories and characters, may every poet find their livings from their stanzas and every creator find the real value of their creation.  Respect both the creator and the creator. Let there be an environment where trade, society, and technology know-how intellectual property is protected.

Meaningful wishes
