Kamada Ekadashi l International Day of Human Space Flight

Kamada means something that grants all desires, Kamada ekadashi is believed to grant desires and wishes of them who observe this auspicious Ekadashi.

Ekadashi, which dates to the Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi (11th day of the waxing moon), is called Kamada Ekadashi. On this day, it is a religious belief to get fruits according to the wishes of people who are purely devout.

Kamada means something that grants all desires, Kamada ekadashi is believed to grant desires and wishes of them who observe this auspicious Ekadashi. The brief study of this Ekadashi mahatma depicts that the significance of this Ekadashi is derived from an ancient incident which happened in a village named "Ratnapura". One day Yudhisthira asks with Krishna to narrate the story behind Kamada Ekadashi, Krishna tells the ancient incident of Ratnapura where King Pundarik ruled from a golden palace.

Ratnapura was also a village where king descendants of serpent kingdom lived, these serpents and several other beautiful Apsaras danced in King Pundarik's palace. Once when a dancer named "Lalit" couldn't perform up to the expectation because of his distraction due to his love affair with another dancer "Lalita", King cursed him to be a demon. Lalit's beloved was Lalita, she later observed this Kamada Ekadashi and freed her beloved from the curse, after that Kamada Ekadashi was widely observed and will always be observed till the eternity.

Precisely, this was it about the Kamada Ekadashi, this year and its months on the final edge, a series of Ekadashis for this year is concluded. See you again on a new year's commencing Ekadashi.

International Day of Human Space Flight

That was some 61 years ago. In 1961, astronaut Yuri Gagarin made a 108-minute orbit around the Earth's orbit in a spacecraft called Vostok 1. On April 7, 2011, the 65th session of the United Nations General Assembly decided to observe April 12 of each year as the International Day of Human Space Flight.

Russia celebrates this day as Cosmetology Day, and in some states and places in the former Soviet Union, it is celebrated as Yuri Gagarin's Day.

Today, one of the milestones of human space dreams has been uncovered. In the case of Nepal, this year's Human Space Flight Day has a new significance. This year, Nepali students have successfully tested the launch of a Nepali rocket called Garuda. Along with the launch and development achievements of this rocket, a group of Nepali scientists will also participate in the SpaceSport America Cup in the United States.

The sky is one of the five elements of Panchatatwa that remains to be explored. Sky and space have aroused a lot of curiosity and questions in the human brain. The desire to touch the moon, the curiosity of the sky and the clouds, and the motions of the movement of the constellations, are always being sought by human beings.

In the same way, space is a mystery and a part to be explored. With the help of science and technology, human beings today have been able to acquire knowledge of Mars, the moon, and other astronomical things and reach there. Much more remains to be done. Today, it discusses the achievements of human space exploration as well as the challenges.

Best wishes on this day.
