    World Intellectual property rights day

    Each year, on 26 April, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) celebrates 'World Intellectual Property Day to discuss the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity.

    This year, World Intellectual Property Day 2022’s theme focuses on IP and Youth innovating for a Better Future.

    What is Intellectual Property?
    Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; symbols, names, and images used in commerce.

    IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright, and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.

    About World IP Day
    In 2000, WIPO's member states designated April 26 – the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970 – as World IP Day to increase general understanding of IP.
    Since then, World IP Day has offered a unique opportunity each year to join with others around the globe to consider how IP contributes to the flourishing of music and the arts and to driving the technological innovation that helps shape our world.

    Baruthini Ekadashi

    Varuthini Ekadashi described by Vasudeva Lord Krishna

    Upon the quest of Yudhisthira, Vasudeva answers by elaborating on Vaisakha Ekadashi (Dark Fortnight) and includes its merits and influence in his words.

     Lord Krishna defines this Varuthini Ekadashi as a holy Ekadashi with a magnanimous impact upon its observers. He links this world and the next one in explaining this holy marking. Fasting this Ekadashi brings fortunes and washes away sins, it bestows material enjoyment in this life and grants a liberation after the death of this present body. This Ekadashi is peculiar because it also liberates from the misery of repetitive birth. Lord Vasudeva also links the liberation of ancient King Mandata with the mercy of this Ekadashi.

     King Dhumdhumara from the Ikshvaku dynasty was cursed by Lord Shiva and he had leprosy which was later cured by observing fasting in Varuthini Ekadashi. These stories are alive by "Shruti" which means a listener says a story to others and thus these stories transfer from generation to generation for thousands of years. Bringing a disease as a curse and giving it a straight remedy by just one day of fasting sounds more like an effect of the Chinese whisper game but logically explanations prove this Ekadashi as a very holy and auspicious day to observe fast, perform rituals and dedicate offerings and commitments to god. Ekadashis are a discipline that leads to a pure and spiritual life. Donating grains is the highest form of donating, this day people donate grains to the needy and offer food to the hungry and homeless. Summarizing this Ekadashi description by presenting words of Lord Vasudeva himself,

     Therefore, Oh king Yudhisthira, who is frightened of his accumulated sins and their attendant reactions, and thus of death itself, must observe Varuthini Ekadasi by fasting very strictly.

     "Finally, Oh noble Yudhisthira, he who hears or reads this glorification of the sacred Varuthini Ekadasi obtains the merit earned by donating one thousand cows in charity, and at last, he returns home, to the supreme abode of Lord Vishnu in the Vaikuntha.
