Welcome to VicharPravah (Flow of Thoughts)…

One can find here thoughts which might affect or change lives, society and culture. We believe that life is outcome of our thoughts. We do what we think or believe in. Our life revolves around the thoughts we have at that moment and even our destiny is usually decided by our thoughts. Thoughts also have a sound impression on our personality. Whether we realize it or not but our mind is thinking one or other thing all the time. Thoughts can be termed as good or bad depending on what action we take based on the thoughts. Irrespective of its kind, each and every thought has power to change individual life, society and cultures.

In Hindu mythology, donation of knowledge is considered as most powerful donation. It is well noted that if you give someone food, clothes, money, the person can use it for sometime but if you provide him/her knowledge then it lasts lifetime and one can use this knowledge to make his/her life financially, spiritually, and socially secure.
