In 1969, Bill started his high school studies, this was the period when humans first went to the moon.

This mission was accomplished with the help of computer. At the same time, a company called Seattle gave Lakeside School. Its computer for students to learn and know about it.

Bill was a curious student, eager to know anything. And that’s why he got his admission in computer class, and soon Bill’s interest in computers started growing.

He was always curious to know how this computer works. So he started spending more and more time in computer class.

When Bill met Paul Allen – Magical Journey

One day Bill Gates met Paul Allen, Allen was two years older than him. There behavior was different from each other. Where Alan was very shy and very calm, Bill’s nature was unlike him. But they both became friends, as their ideas and perceptions were matched regards to computers.

And at that time no one could think that one day these two will change this world. By bringing a revolution in the computer world.

In 1972, when Bill Gates was 17 years old. He co-created a computer program called Traf-o-Data on the Intel 8008 processor with Paul Allen. Which measured traffic flow in Seattle city. And for this they got $ 20,000, which was their first earning. And with this, Bill entered the world of technology.

In 1972, when Bill was only 17 years old, he started thinking about opening his own company with Alan.

But Bill’s parents insisted him to get admitted in college after finishing his high school. His father was a prominent lawyer and wanted Bill also to study law.

In 1973 bills completed his high school. He scored 1590 out of 1600 on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT). On which his parents were very happy and they got the bill admitted to Harvard University in  1973.

His parents wanted him to study Law, but Bill Gates had a different dream.

Nevertheless, he thought very carefully about making a career in law. But he did not find any such subject in it, as much as interested as computer. And that’s why he used to spend more and more of his time at Harvard Computer Center.

In December 1974 , Allen saw the cover page of Popular Electronics magazine. In which the world’s first mini-computer kit, the MITS Altair 8800 was announced.

Alan went to Bill and told him everything. After this, both of them were very happy. Because they knew that if this computer will enter into the market. Then every person in the world would be able to use it to make their work easier.

The Altair 8800 was built in New Mexico by an Ed Roberts company.

Robbers the owner of the company. Was looking for such a person who could make such software that could run this computer.

Now these two had a great opportunity to shine their fortunes, and this is the reason they contacted with this company.

They  make sure that they are working as a program of basic software that will run the Altair computer. And after that they both worked day and night at Harvard Computer Center for two months and made a software.

In 1975 Paul Allen went to test the software. The software started working when it was installed in the Altair 8800.

And this was the best moment of their life. Which had a historical impact on the computer world, after that he decided not to stop.

Microsoft Company

On April 4th, 1975 at the age of just 19, Bill Gates together with Paul Allen founded the Microsoft company. And started working together with Mr. Roberts Company.

Allen named their partnership “Micro-Soft”, a combination of “microcomputer” and “software“, and their first office was in Albuquerque. The first employee Gates and Allen hired was their high school collaborator Ric Weiland. They dropped the hyphen within a year and officially registered the trade name “Microsoft“. With the Secretary of the State of New Mexico on November 26, 1976. Gates never returned to Harvard to complete his studies.

And soon after, the consumption of digital computers increased so much that Bill Gates decided to left his studies before the final years. He had talked over this decision with his parents, who were supportive of him after seeing how much he wanted to start his own company.

He explained his decision to leave Harvard: “if things hadn’t worked out, I could always go back to school. I was officially on leave.”

But in the initial stages, Bill and Allen had to face a lot of trouble, a culture started to become popular with the computer purchaser.

In which people were buying personal computer but used to share information and software with each other.

And that’s why no one had any interest in buying software.
But Bill and Alan were very much involved in making this software so they felt bad about it.

Bill’s Request Letter to Users

In 1976, Bill wrote a letter to people interested in computers. Saying that without buying any software using it will to stop the new software to come in the market.

But it had no effect on the people, which disappointed Bill Gate. But his sharpness was not only in making software. He was also very smart, he knows how to grow the business and take the company to the top.

He used to manually check the code created by the employee and remove the error from it.

Due to his hard work, the company’s growth was increasing equally as compared to other hardware making companies like Apple, Intel and IBM.

Microsoft started expanded the new software into different languages ​​and started selling its products to other computer manufacturers.

By the end of 1978, sales of these software would have exceeded 1 million,

And between 1978 and 1981, there was astonishing development and in a very short time, the company’s employees increased from 13 to 128 employees.

Microsoft with IBM

In November 1980, an opportunity came to the Microsoft company that changed it’s fortunes, the world’s largest computer maker, IBM, offered them to make software for its new computer.

This was a great opportunity for Bill and Alan and then they made a Ms-Dos, a new computer software for IBM. They (IBM company) wanted to buy the source code of this software for 50,000 dollars. But Bill Gate was a very clever businessman, he did not accept this proposal of IBM.

Because they wanted to earn from each & every sales of computer which has installed Microsoft’s software in it. And that’s why IBM had to pay Microsoft a license fee on every computer sale.

The press quickly identified Microsoft as being very influential on the IBM PC. PC Magazine asked if Gates was “the man behind the machine?”.

Unfortunate Separation from Paul Allen

Bill became the sole face of Microsoft, In 1984. And with his persistent efforts and perseverance, in 1985 his company did the business more than $140 million.

In 22 May 1990, Microsoft launched a new software, Ms Window 3.0 and at the same time, Bill also reduced the rate of Microsoft products.

His only motive behind this was that no other company could stand in front of him, and that is was the reason that IBM’S OS/2 software became a failure in the market. Microsoft Wind 3.0 became the best-selling window software.

More Bad moments & struggle of Microsoft

In 1993 bad times still did not end with Microsoft because the same year the Microsoft company was subjected to some legal investigation by the Department of Audit.

Subedar Yogendra Singh Yadav, the youngest Indian Army soldier to receive the Paramveer Chakra at the age of 19, he was born on 10 May 1980 in Ahir village of Bulandshahar district, U.P. Patriotism was in his blood because of his father, Mr. Karan Singh Yadav, who served the Kumaon Regiment by participating in the 1965 and 1971 wars, Yogendra Singh Yadav was enlisted in the Indian army only at the age of 16 years and 5 months.

वैसे तो भारत का हर एक सिपाही बहादुर और जांबाज है जो अपनी जान की परवाह किए बिना देश के रक्षा में अपना सर्वस्व न्योछावर कर देता है हम सभी उन वीर सिपाहियों को शत-शत नमन करते हैं, परंतु कुछ सिपाही कुछ ऐसा कर जाते हैं जो मानव कल्पना के परे होते है,  कुछ ऐसा अविश्वसनीय कर जाते हैं जो सजा के लिए अमर हो जाते हैं ।

By the way, every soldier of Indian Army is brave and brave who, regardless of his life, surrenders himself in defense of the country, we all salute those brave soldiers, but some soldiers do something that are beyond the humans imagination, and they do something incredible that make them  become immortal in our memories.

ऐसा ही कुछ सूबेदार योगेंद्र सिंह के साथ हुआ , यह बात कारगिल युद्ध की है 1999 में हुई कारगिल में युद्ध में सबसे महत्वपूर्ण स्थान टाइगर हिल का था जहां पाकिस्तानियों का कब्जा था , पाकिस्तानियों के पास पहाड़ के ऊंचाई पर होने का फायदा था वह आसानी से नीचे से आने वाले विरोधियों को मार सकते थे ।

The same thing happened with Subedar Yogendra Singh, this is of Kargil war. The most important place in the war of  Kargil in 1999 was Tiger Hill where the Pakistanis were in possession, Pakistanis had the advantage of being at the height of the mountain. They could easily  kill their opponents who coming from below.

टाइगर हिल पर कब्जा करना भारत के लिए अति आवश्यक था पाकिस्तानियों को धूल चटाने के लिए सूबेदार योगेंद्र सिंह ने 16000 फीट की खड़ी पहाड़ी पर चढ़ने का साहस पूर्वक निर्णय लिया उस समय में केवल 19 वर्ष के थे परंतु बहादुरी तो उन्हें अपने पिता से विरासत में मिली थी उस समय टाइगर हिल पर पाकिस्तानियों के तीन बंकर थे जिन्हें खत्म करना अति आवश्यक था ।

It was very important for India to capture Tiger Hill. Subedar Yogendra Singh took the courageous decision to climb the 16000 feet steep hill, at that time he was only 19 years old but bravely inherited it from his father. At that time, there were three bunkers of Pakistanis on Tiger Hill which was necessary to destroy.

योगेंद्र सिंह अट्ठारह ग्रेनेडियर्स के साथ कार्यरत कमांडो प्लाटून घातक का हिस्सा थे, 4 जुलाई 1999 में उन्होंने टाइगर हिल के पिछले भाग से चढ़ाई करनी शुरू की ताकि पाकिस्तानियों को उसका पता ना चल सके, उन्होंने स्वेच्छा से चढ़ाई शुरू की और पीछे से आने वाले सैनिकों के लिए रास्ता बनाने लगे, पाकिस्तानियों को भ्रमित करने के लिए भारतीय सेना ने सामने से गोलीबारी शुरू की गई ।

Yogendra Singh was part of a deadly commando platoon “GHATAK”with eighteen grenadiers, on 4 July 1999 he started climbing from the rear of Tiger Hill so that the Pakistanis could not find it, he started voluntarily and started making ways for  the troops coming from behind. The Indian Army opened fire from the front to confuse the Pakistanis.

परंतु जब योगेंद्र टाइगर हिल पर चढ़ने ही वाले थे वह केवल 60 फीट का फासला तय करना ही रह गया था तभी पाकिस्तानियों ने इनको ऊपर आते हुए देख लिया और अपने बंकर से इन पर हमला कर दिया, इस हमले में इनके पीछे के दो सिपाही शहीद हो गए और इन्हें कंधे पर 3 गोलियां लगी लेकिन यह फिर भी डटे रहे पूरी रात कड़ाके की सर्दी में खुद को जीवित रखा और धीरे-धीरे ऊपर की बची हुई चढ़ाई को पूरी करने लगे ।

But when Yogendra was about to climb Tiger Hill, it was left only to cover the distance of 60 feet, when the Pakistanis saw them coming up and attacked on them from their bunker, in this attack, the two soldiers behind them were martyred. And he was hit by 3 bullets on his shoulder, but he still kept himself alive for the whole night in the harsh winter and slowly started to complete the remaining climb.

पाकिस्तानियों को लगा कि वह वीरगति को प्राप्त हो चुके हैं परंतु अंततः इतने गंभीर हालत में भी टाइगर हिल पर चढ़े और चढ़ते के साथ ही इन्होंने गिरने से पाकिस्तानियों के बंकर में घुस गए और उन पर हमला कर दिया और देखते ही देखते उनके चार सिपाही मार दिए यह देख बाकी के पाकिस्तानी हैरान रह गए उसके बाद भी वे  ना रुके और  दुश्मन के दूसरे बनकर में भी घुस गए जहां उन्होंने हाथापाई कर उनके 4 सैनिक मार दिए ।

The Pakistanis felt that he had attained Virgati but eventually in such a critical condition, he climbed the Tiger Hill and as they climbed, he entered into the bunker of Pakistanis and attacked them and killed their four soldiers within a matter of time. After seeing this, the rest of the Pakistanis were surprised even after that he did not stop and entered into another bunker of enemies where he killed their 4 soldiers.

इन सब के दौरान उन्हें 15 गोलियां लगी पूरा शरीर छल्ली हो गया, परंतु भारत माता का ये वीर  फिर भी नहीं हरा , मातृभूमि की रक्षा हेतु वह मौत से भी लड़ गए और मौत को भी उन्होंने हराया इन सब के दौरान बाकी के भारतीय सिपाहियों को ऊपर चढ़ने का मौका मिल गया और उन्होंने दुश्मनों के बाकि के बंकरो को  तहस-नहस कर दिया, अंततः भारत ने सूबेदार के बहादुरी के कारण टाइगर हिल पर तिरंगा लहराया ।

During all this, he got shot with 15 bullets, the whole body became cuticle, but this hero of Bharat Mata was not defeated yet, he also fought to the death to protect the motherland and he also defeated the death, the remaining Indian Army soldiers got the chance to climb up and they bravely destroy the rest of the enemy’s bunkers. Finally, India hoisted the tricolor (Tiranga) on Tiger Hill due to the bravery of the Subedar.

अचंभे की बात तो यह है कि उन्हें  मरणोपरांत परमवीर चक्र की घोषणा की गई थी, परंतु यह वीर लड़ाका हस्पताल में भी मौत से लड़ा और वहां भी वह विजई रहे और उनके स्वास्थ्य में सुधार आने लगा और वे  सबसे कम उम्र में परमवीर चक्र पाने वाले भारत के पहले सैनिक बने ।

Surprisingly, he was posthumously announced the Param Vir Chakra, but this brave fighter fought to the death in the hospital too and he remained victorious there and his health started improving and he became the first youngest  soldier of India to get the Param Vir Chakra.

Ian cardozo गोरखा रेजीमेंट के बहादुर लड़ाका , होनहार तथा साहसी ,कभी ना हार मानने वाले, कभी ना विचलित होने वाले, जी हां दोस्तों इनकी प्रशंसा जितनी भी की जाए उतनी कम है आइए जानते हैं यह कौन है-

Ian cardozo brave warriors of the Gorkha regiment, promising and courageous, who never gave up, never being distracted. Let’s know who is he.

कई असाधारण युद्ध कथाएँ निस्संदेह सिलहट की लड़ाई से उभरी हैं । भारतीय और बांग्लादेशी दोनों मोर्चों से। हालांकि, मेजर जनरल इयान कार्डोज़ो के जैसा कोई भी नहीं होगा, जिन्होंने बारूदी सुरंग पर कदम रखने के बाद अपना ही पैर काट दिया।

Many extraordinary war stories have undoubtedly emerged from the Battle of Sylhet. From both Indian and Bangladeshi fronts. However, there will be none like Major General Ian Cardozo, who cut his own leg after stepping on a landmine.

सिलहट की लड़ाई में पाकिस्तानियों के छक्के छुड़ाने वाले, 1971 के हीरो, 1971 में जब भारत और पाकिस्तान का युद्ध हुआ इस युद्ध में भारतीय सैनिकों ने अदम साहस का परिचय देते हुए पाकिस्तान को हथियार डालने पर  मजबूर कर दिया, यह अब तक का किसी भी युद्ध में सबसे बड़ा सरेंडर था ।

The 1971 hero who defeated Pakistanis badly in the Battle of Sylhet, when India and Pakistan fought in 1971, in this war, Indian soldiers showed immense courage and forced Pakistan to lay down arms. It was the biggest surrender in any war that ever happened.

पाकिस्तान को बुरी तरह मुंह की खानी पड़ी थी,  सरेंडर करने के बाद भी भारतीय जवानों को शक था कि अभी भी खतरा टला नहीं है खोजबीन करने के दौरान अचानक एक जमीनी सुरंग में धमाका हुआ उसी दौरान मेजर जनरल यान कार्डोजो का एक पैर धमाके में फट गया, पाँव फटने के दौरान उस समय वहां कोई इमरजेंसी सुविधा नहीं थी , जिसके  कारण इन्होंने अपनी खुकरी उठाई और उसी खुकरी से उन्होंने अपने पांव काट डालें ।

            

Pakistan had to face a worst ever defeat, even after surrendering, the Indian soldiers suspected that the danger was still not averted. During the search, a sudden explosion occurred in a ground tunnel, while Major General Yan Cardozo’s leg exploded in a blast, there was no emergency facility at that time when the leg exploded, due to which he raised his foot and he cut his foot with his Khukri.

उस समय जो वहां जूनियर डॉक्टर थे वह सक्षम नहीं थे सर्जरी में इसलिए उन्होंने कुछ करने में असमर्थता दिखाई , साहस दिखते हुए उन्होंने अपना पैर  खुद ही काट डाला, उस कटे हुए पैर को वहीं जमीन में गाड़ दिया गया, उसके बाद उनके साथी उन्हें उठाकर वहां से ले गए ।

At that time those who were junior doctors there were not able to do surgery so they showed inability to do anything, showing courage, he cut his own feet themselves, that severed leg was buried in the ground, then their partner soldiers picked them up and took him from their.

उनके इलाज के लिए एक पाकिस्तानी surgen मोहम्मद बशीर को आदेश मिला, पहले तो उन्होंने मना कर दिया परंतु जब उन्हें पता चला कि उनके उपचार के लिए वहां और कोई डॉक्टर उपलब्ध नहीं है तो उन्होंने मानवता का परिचय देते हुए उनका इलाज किया, इस घटना के बाद उन्हें हॉस्पिटल ले जाया गया जहां उन्हें एक लकड़ी का पैर लगाया गया ।

A Pakistani surgeon, Mohammed Bashir, received an order for his treatment, at first he refused but when he came to know that there was no other doctor available for his treatment, he treated him by introducing humanity, of this incident. Later he was taken to the hospital where he was put on a wooden leg.

जबकि अब वह विकलांग हो चुके थे तो इन्हें आर्मी में जगह नहीं मिल सकती थी, ना ही इन्हें आगे प्रमोट किया जा सकता था, इन्हें कहा गया कि आपका एक पाव नहीं है आप आर्मी में अब नहीं रह सकते ,परंतु IAN CARDOZO कहां रुकने वाले थे उन्होंने कभी भी खुद को विकलांग नहीं समझा और खुद को और बेहतर बनाने के लिए लकड़ी का एक पाव लेकर खुद को दुरुस्त करने में लग गए ।

While he was now handicapped, he could not get a place in the Indian Army, nor could he be promoted further, he was told thatas he  do not have a leg, you can no longer live in the Army,  but Ian cardozo was no longer in mood to gave up. He never considered himself to be handicapped and took a leg of wood to improve himself and started to fix himself.

एक्सरसाइज करना स्टार्ट किया लकड़ी के पैर से  दौड़ने का अभ्यास करने लगे, खुद को TRAIN करने लगे, इन्होंने खुद को इतना ताकतवर बना लिया कि अब तैयार थे चुनौतियों से लड़ने के लिए ,उन्होंने कहा कि वे तैयार है किसी से भी रेस लगाने के लिए, उनको विश्वास था कि वे किसी भी 2 पैर वाले इंसान को आसानी से हरा सकते हैं, और लकड़ी के एक पैर से इतना तेज भागे कि जो मेडिकली फिट थे उनको उनको भी  दौड़ में पीछे छोड़ दिया, इसके बाद  उन्होंने  फिजिकल फिटनेस टेस्ट (Physical Fitness Test) पास किया ।

He started exercising, started running with wooden legs, started training himself, he made himself so strong that he was ready to fight the challenges, he said that he is ready to race anyone , he believed that he could beat any 2-legged human easily, and ran so fast with one leg of wood that even those who were medically fit were beaten him in the race, After that he passed the Physical Fitness Test.

इसके बाद उन्होंने उस समय के सेनाध्यक्ष जनरल तपिश्वर नारायण रैना के सामने अपना मामला रखा, जिसने तब कार्डोजो को लद्दाख जाने के लिए कहा। यह देखने के बाद कि कार्डोज़ो अभी भी बर्फ और बर्फ के माध्यम से पहाड़ों में चल सकता है, जनरल रैना ने उसे एक बटालियन की कमान संभालने की अनुमति दी। इसी तरह की स्थिति तब हुई जब उन्हें एक ब्रिगेड की कमान लेनी थी। वे हर मुसीबतों से लड़ते गए और अपनी विकलांगता को अपनी ताकत बनाया , अंततः उन्हें 1 मार्च 1984 को ब्रिगेडियर में पदोन्नत किया गया था।

 

He then presented his case in front of the then Indian Army Chief General Tapishwar Narayana Raina, who then asked Cardozo to go to Laddakh. After seeing that Cardozo could still walk in the mountains through snow and ice, General Raina allowed him to command a battalion. A similar situation occurred when he was to command a brigade. He fought through all the troubles and made his disability his strength and finally he was promoted to the rank of  Brigadier on 1 March 1984.

IAN CARDOZO देश  में केवल एक मात्र ऐसे व्यक्ति थे जो विकलांग होने के बाद भी उन्हें मेजर जनरल के रैंक से सम्मानित किया गया यह सब उन्होंने आत्मबल और इच्छाशक्ति के दम पर हासिल किया ।

IAN CARDOZO was the only person in the country who was awarded the rank of Major General in Indian Army even though he was disabled, he achieved this on the strength of self-will.

दोस्तों आशा करता हूँ आपको  इन दो  भारत माता की वीर पुत्रो की बहादुरी से ,प्रेरणा मिली होगी। आपको ये एहसास हो गया होगा  की  लक्ष्य चाहे कितना ही बड़ा क्यों न हो , मनुष्य की  इच्छा शक्ति से कभी बड़ी नहीं हो सकती।  एक प्रबल इच्छा सकती और अनुशाशन से भरा जीवन हमेशा आपको सकारात्मकता  की ओर लेकर जाएगी और  सकारात्मकता  आपको आपके लक्ष्य के और भी करीब। और अन्ततः आप आप अपने लक्ष्य को  पा लोगे, जिस्के लिए आपने दिन रात संघर्ष किया।

 

Friends, I hope you have been inspired by the bravery of these two sons of Mother India. You must have realized that no matter how big the goal is, it can never be the greater than the will power of yours. A strong desire and a life full of discipline will always take you towards positivity and positivity will make you even closer to your goal. And finally you will achieve your goal, for which you struggled day and night.

जय हिन्द !!!

Brave Indian Army

It is not necessary that the person who stays awake all night maybe a lover, he may be a soldier who is always prepared to sacrifice his life for his country. Friends, our country has given birth to many brave sons, who are engaged in selfless service of our country and countrymen on the border, who Lives, without caring about his life. So friends, today I am going to bring to you the saga of one of the bravest son of Mother India, about whom you will feel more proud and will know more closely the sacrifice and bravery of our soldiers. 

HERO OF NATHULA – BABA HARBHAJAN SINGH

 Friends, today’s article is only on that brave son of the country, who is engaged in protecting the country even after being martyred. It’s a bit strange to hear, but if people are to be believed, there is complete truth in this matter. I am talking about Baba Harbhajan Singh, who is martyred for the country, who is also known as “Hero of Nathula”.

The early life of Baba Harbhajan Singh

Baba Harbhajan Singh was born into a Sikh family on 30 August in the village of Sadhana in district Gujranwala (now in Pakistan). The whole country was immersed in devotion at the time when he was born. And maybe that’s why he already had the urge to do something for his country, His family shifted to  India after the partition. In India, he completed his preliminary education at a village school, and then matriculated from DAV High School in Patti, Punjab, in March 1965.

Baba Harbhajan Singh IN INDIAN ARMY

He enlisted as a soldier in Amritsar and joined the Punjab regiment.

And on 30 July 1965, he was posted with 14 Rajput Regiment, He participated in the India-Pakistan war in 1965. This was the first time in his life when he participated in any war.

Later, he was transferred to 18 Rajput Regiment, and he worked very hard for the next 3 years in this regiment.

Baba Harbhajan Singh DEATH MYSTERY

He died in Sikkim on 4 October 1968, the reason behind his death was that he was going through 14,500 feet (4,400 m) Nathu La, a mountain pass between Tibet and Sikkim where many battles took place between the Indian Army and the PLA (China’s People’s Liberation Army) during the 1965 Sino-Indian war.

But while carrying goods for the army, he was trapped in a glacier, which would lead to his death. His remains were found after a three-day search. His body was subsequently cremated with full military honors .

He was given the status of “martyr” (Shaheed) for his loss of life for the country.

MIRACULOUS DEATH STORY

Friends, this was a common thing which has often happened to our country’s patriot SiPahi. But now the story which is difficult to believe and the many  legends  further claims that the late Harbhajan  Singh helped the search party find his body .

He told his partner the location of his body in the dream and after 3 days of hard search, his body was found at the same place where he told. This was the first incident in which Harbhajan Singh, even after his death, assisted his military brothers.

INTERACTION WITH CHINESE

After Harbhajan’s death, it was interactions with the Chinese that first cemented the initial hearsay of his ghost among Indian troops. The Chinese reported seeing a figure in Indian army uniform riding a white horse on their territory.

The Chinese army wrote a letter to the Indians asking ‘Who is this person doing the horse riding every night?.

“The Indian officer had a dream in which Babi Ji told him ‘I’m not going to harm them, however, if they want to catch me they can try.’

The Chinese never caught him

As his legend developed in army circles there, Harbhajan was given a seat at flag meetings between the two countries. “Once a Chinese official tried to sit in that seat but Baba Ji threw him off,”.

INDIAN ARMY BELIEFS

Some Indian soldiers believe that in the event of a war between India and China, Baba always warn the Indian soldiers of an impending attack at least three days in advance.

As per common belief, any army official not maintaining a clean and disciplined attire is punished with a slap by Baba himself. His own attire which hangs in the display need not be cleaned by anyone as it gets cleaned by his own soul.

Leave home

Every year on 11 September, the goods of Baba Harbhajan Singh are conveyed with full respect to the railway station New Jalpaiguri. And from there, three soldiers sent his goods to their village. KUKA, in the Kapurthala district of the Indian state of Punjab.

While empty berths on any train of the Indian Railways are invariably allocated to any waitlisted passenger or on a first-come-first-served basis by the coach attendants, a special reservation for the Baba is made.

Every year a seat is left empty for the journey to his hometown and 3 soldiers chaperone the Baba to his home. A small sum of money is contributed by soldiers posted in Nathula to be sent to his mother each month.

AFTER DEATH SERVICE FOR COUNTRY

1. Baba Harbhajan Singh has been continuously performing his duty since his death. For this, he is paid a salary, he has a rank in his army, he is also promoted as per rules. He was even sent to the village on a leave of 2 months until a few years ago.

For this, seats were reserved on the train, with three soldiers, all their belongings were sent to their village and after two months, they were brought back to Sikkim. During the two months when Baba was on leave, the entire border was on high alert because the soldiers could not get Baba’s help at that time.

BABA HARBHAJAN ON LEAVE

2. Baba’s departure and return from Sikkim were taking the form of a religious event in which a large number of people started gathering. Some people considered this event as promoting superstition, so they approached the court because any kind of superstition is forbidden in the army.
So the army stopped sending Baba on leave.

Now Baba is on duty for twelve months of the year. There is also a room of Baba in the temple, in which beds are cleaned and planted daily. Baba’s army uniforms and shoes are kept. It is said that after cleaning daily, mud and salve are found in their shoes.

INDIAN ARMY BELIEFS ON BABA HARBHAJAN

3. The temple of Baba Harbhajan Singh is the centre of faith of both soldiers and people. Every new soldier who comes to this area comes first to attack Baba. A strange belief among the people about this temple is that if the water is filled in a bottle in this temple and kept for three days, then that water has miraculous medicinal properties.

People’s diseases disappear by drinking this water. Therefore, the name of the bottles written in this temple is ambar. This water is used within 21 days and during this time the consumption of meat and alcohol is prohibited.

BABA HARBHAJAN BUNKER – AS A TEMPLE

4. Baba’s bunker, which is 1000 feet above the new temple, is decorated with red and yellow colours. Staircase red and pillar yellow. The bell is tied from bottom to top on both side railings of the stairs. There is a copy kept in Baba’s bunker. People write their wishes in these copies, it is believed that every wish written in them is complete.

In the same way, there is a place in the bunker where people drop coins, if they get that coin back then they are considered lucky. He is then advised to keep it in his purse or vault forever. The entire operation of both places is done by the army itself.

Every October 4 a special ceremony is organized by the Indian army out here to honour the role of Baba Harbhajan Singh as well as the mytars of Indian army who laid their lives for the safeguard of the country. Every Sunday and Tuesday throughout the year puja is observed at Baba Mandir where free meals are distributed among the devotees.

He was only 22 years old when he died, and for his bravery, he was awarded the Mahavir Chakra on 26 January 1969


So this was Baba Harbhajan, a soldier who gave his life to Mother India, But even posthumously, his patriotism did not disappear. Even today, he is motivating the remaining soldiers, to protect the country.

I hope you will be proud to read this article about this brave son of your country, who, even after death, has not forgotten his patriotism, and still serves the country today.

केजरीवाल का परिवार ।

अरविंद का बचपन ।

REALIZATION OF POWER OF INTERNET – BIRTH OF AMAZON.COM

In the 90s, there was a discovery that still has an impact on the world. Jeff Bezos, a Wall Street jobber, was watching the Internet revolution very closely. Seeing the fast-growing Internet in America, Jeff decides to quit his job and open an Internet company. Jeff’s mind then comes up with the idea of ​​online rites. Jeffs lists 20 products that can be sold online. He starts a website to sell books online, seeing the low price of books and the never-ending demand.

In late 1993, Bezos decided to establish an online bookstore. He left his well-settled job at D. E. Shaw and founded Amazon in his garage with computers and the employees on July 5, 1994, after asking 300 friends to beta test his site. In the months leading up to launch, a few employees began developing software with Bezos in his garage; they eventually expanded operations into a two-bedroom house equipped with three Sun Microstation.

Bezos initially named his new company Cadabra but later changed the name to Amazon after the Amazon River in South America, in part because the name begins with the letter A, which is at the beginning of the alphabet.

 He accepted an estimated $300,000 from his parents and invested in Amazon.

He warned many of his  investors earlier that there was a 70% chance that Amazon would fail or go bankrupt. Although Amazon was originally an online bookstore, Bezos had always planned to expand to other products.

When Amazon went Public

Three years after Bezos founded Amazon, he took it public with an initial public offering (IPO). The initial success of the company was unbelievable, without  any promotions, Amazon.com sold books across the United States and in 45 foreign countries within 30 days. In two months, sales reached $20,000 a week, growing faster than Bezos and his startup team had envisioned.

Amazon.com went public in 1997, leading many market analysts to question whether the company could hold its own when traditional retailers launched their own e-commerce sites.

Within two years  his start-up not only kept up, but also outpaced the competitors and  became an e-commerce leader.

Diversifying Amazon

Jeff Bezos continued to diversify Amazon’s offerings with the sale of CDs and videos in 1998, and, by the end of the year, he had also expanded the company’s products to include a variety of consumer goods like clothes, electronics, toys and more through major retail partnerships. 

While many dot.coms of the early ’90s went bust, but Amazon.com flourished with yearly sales that jumped from $510,000 in 1995 to over $17 billion in 2011.

As part of Bezos’ 2018 annual shareholder letter, the media tycoon said the company had surpassed 100 million paid subscribers for Amazon Prime. By September 2018, Amazon was valued at more than $1 trillion, the second company to ever hit that record just a few weeks after Apple.
