Make Hay While the Sun Shines: Date: 29th Jan, 2012
Time Duration: Five Minutes
(The Beginning)
Honorable personalities on the Chair, very much Respected and cherished authorities on to the dais, esteemed decision maker judges, dear intellectual thoughtful orators and my all very much awakened mighty listeners, please accept the best wishes and greetings from this Anubhav Jain standing before you all today. Dear all, before you start listening to my words today, let me guide you that they all, the words, are to be attached or annexed with the so much kindling topic MAKE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES. And let me warn you, all, that, if any of my words makes you think of your very own life, then it is not just the sheer coincidence, but the very objective of these next a few minutes. Do feel about yourself, if you can. I will be more than honored.
(The Body)
Make hay while the Sun Shines, the line motivates us to do work while there is sunshine… The audience should not infer the much tempting meaning of the same: “Don’t work in the night, while the Sun is not shining”…
So what is hay for us? What do we want to be, a qualified professional, CA, Doctor or MBA? A rich man, family man etc. etc. Why? It gives us pleasure? We want happiness, ultimate objective & desire. So how do we get it? Make Hay While the Sun Shines – they answer us.
So what is it about? Doing hard work… Doing the best until there is time, with all dedication, sincerity… right? How many of you think hard-work always pay?
Barbara Kingsolver quotes in her book Animal Dreams– “Why does a person even get up in the morning? You have breakfast, you floss your teeth so you'll have healthy gums in your old age, and then you get in your car and drive down and die. Life is so stupid I can't stand it.”
Does hard work really pay?
NO. Then why do they say make Hay while the sun shines? Is it wrong?
No… may be, what we took from it is wrong… The deception we have made with this line. May be, the man who wrote it had something else in his mind.
It actually says get ready, be prepared for what is to come… And what it is which is going to come?
Death… People call me young man, they say you have so much time… I wonder how they know how much I am going to live… The death is so much unpredictable, so is life…
Whatever we do is for a purpose, our hay to be made to fulfill that purpose, to be happy. How will that purpose be fulfilled? Shall we not concentrate on the other possibilities too?
We have to make HAY, stay happy, enjoy every moment, until the sun is shining, that is, death is far. We cannot loose hearts to failures; we cannot shut life with all time working. We have to live life, fully in what we do. It doesn’t negate hard work, but it negates the NOT being happy in doing hard work.
Mitch Albom in his bestselling novel “Tuesdays with Morrey” says “Everyone knows they are going to die but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently. We kid ourselves about death but there is better approach. To be prepared for it anytime. That way you can actually be MORE involved in your life while you’re living.”
“The truth is: Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
(The Ending)
The life through this simple line “make Hay While the Sun shines” simply but silently warns: Hey man, wake up before you won’t be able to rise without other’s help. And do what is needed to be done, for others, for your this world, and for your upcoming, very much curious other world.
Dear all, allow me to stop here and order your own hearts to start “Self Introspecting”… let’s make life purposeful, unlike animals, dear awakened human souls… let’s make life purposeful.
Live it, love it…

Thank You All…

Anubhav Jain…...

The Sun

...“SUN” The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is almost perfectly spherical and consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields. The Sun is a G-type main-sequence star comprising about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. The Sun consists of plasma and is not solid. It rotates faster at its equator than at its poles. This behavior is known as differential rotation, and is caused by convection in the Sun and the movement of mass. The Sun is a Population I or heavy element-rich star.  The formation of the Sun may have been triggered by shockwaves from one or more supernovas. The Sun does not have a definite boundary as rocky planets do. Through most of the Sun's life, energy is produced by nuclear fusion through a series of steps called the proton–proton chain. This process converts hydrogen into helium. The Sun is a magnetically active star that supports a strong, changing magnetic field that varies year to year and reverses direction about every eleven years around solar maximum. The Sun's magnetic field leads to many effects that are called solar activity which carries material through the Solar System. Solar activity changes the structure of Earth's outer atmosphere. All matter in the Sun is in the form of gas and plasma because of its high temperatures. This makes it possible for the Sun to rotate faster at its equator than it does at higher latitudes. The Sun was formed about 4.57 billion years ago from the......

Shine & Kung Fu Hustle

...into his wonderful creations. Some attributes of Hicks directorial style demonstrated in my chosen visual text Shine include camera work, music, and the terrifyingly subtle use of lighting to develop the atmosphere and create apprehension in the audience. On the contrary, Stephen Chow’s ostentatious special effects, camera work, lighting and sound in Kung Fu Hustle in no way waned to present the same ideas and rivet the audience on to the end of their seats to witness the anticipated metamorphosis of antagonist to protagonist. In Shine, Hicks’ concoction of multiple cinematic techniques effectively portray the idea of the change and the transition from the suppression of the individual to the strength of the individual. Hicks’ use of specific techniques helps the audience learn more about Peters Authoritarian mindset and further develops the oppression felt by David’s character whilst portraying the idea of change. This enables the audience to understand the more complex underlying themes in the film and makes the audience more aware to the specific role of each character in the film and how they are all intertwined with each other at a deeper level. Consequently, it successfully challenges us, the audience, to consider how we might have felt in David’s situation and helps us draw conclusions about the nature of relationships and family dynamics. A scene, in Shine, that Hicks uses cinematic techniques, lighting, music/sound, symbolism and dialogue is scene ten where......

Essay on Shine

...Question: A successful visual or oral text is one in which a director seeks to create new realities and/or fresh perspectives for old ideas. Undeniably, the visual text Shine is successful because the director, Scott Hicks, seeks to create new realities and fresh perspectives for old ideas such as love. Through his astute concoction of visual techniques such as: lighting and camerawork amidst verbal techniques such as dialogue and music Hicks portrays “…the power of love – both to destroy and to redeem.” Shine follows the story of a piano virtuoso David Helfgott in his struggle to overcome the adversities caused by his father Peter in order to achieve his own dreams and ambitions of becoming a well-established musician by attending The Royal Academy of Music. Shine is successful in the sense that the director, Scott Hicks, creates new realities for old ideas such as love by presenting the power of love to destroy. This is an interesting alteration to the old idea because it contravenes our superficial conception that love is completely constructive. The idea of the power of love to destroy is presented through the character of Peter. Peter is a very harsh and abrasive character: he is a Polish immigrant who now lives in Australia and has lived through the atrocities of the Holocaust. As a child he had his family taken away from him and the psychological after-effects of this horrid experiences is evident in his character. Peter is very over-protective of his family......

Some may not know it, but most of these photos have been edited and retouched. This research paper attempted to determine the majority opinion of what types of photo editing was above the tolerable limit, as well as the public awareness of media manipulation. The different levels of photo editing included changing the contrast, removal of blemishes and dust, addition/removal of objects, and addition/removal of main subjects. The results revealed that most people are aware of photoshopping in the media and they suspected there was more photo editing in magazines and advertisements than newspapers. 3 Chapter 1 In every publication there are most likely photos accompanying articles, advertisements, or exist as an article by themselves. Pictures help support an article, promote a product, tell a story, and bring the viewer in. Nowadays there are an abundance of software programs that help edit photos. These programs are also continuously improving, making editing much easier. Artists and photographers enjoy using this software because of all the opportunities they have to make their pictures even better.

Hay Fever

...Hay Fever A runny nose, stuffed nose, wheezing, facial pressure and pain, coughing, watery, itchy and swelling eyes are all symptoms of this yearly burden. Breathing difficulties at night, violent sneezing, and constant rubbing of the eyes are what this allergy is feared for. Although it is better known for only haunting victims during the early spring till late summer, this horrible problem can be around nearly all year long. Depending on one’s surroundings and when certain plants pollinate, Hay Fever causes a huge inconvenience for 26.9 million people in America, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Hay Fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, causes cold like symptoms due to an allergic reaction to various plants, mold and dust particles. Effects may be felt almost immediately after exposure and can even develop to an extreme state causing Asthma or Eczema. Though a common and not so deadly allergy, this affliction has plagued my family through the generations. Merriam-Webster defines Hay Fever as an allergic reaction to pollen. However, Hay Fever is not just a simple reaction and it is caused by so much more than just pollen. These outdoor allergies are caused by grass, tree and weed pollens, dust mites, cat dander, certain molds and stinging insects. Because there are so many different types of activators, outdoor allergies can last through every season. Most pollen from trees pollinate during the early spring. Grass pollinates during the late......

Commentary of Sun Rising by John Donne

...“The Sun Rising” written by John Donne is a poem about two lovers and the invasion of the sun. In this poem, the sun symbolizes an intruder that is constantly disturbing the two lovers. The speaker expresses his annoyance by the sun’s routinely invasion, and also the beauty of his love. Furthermore, this dramatic love poem takes place in the bed of the two lovers, which is the central image the poem is focused around. Donne uses literary devices such as hyperbole, personification, and apostrophe in correlation to the sun to express how he really feels about this intruder and how much his lover means to him. In the first stanza, Donne uses personification and accuses the sun of being a “busy old fool” that does nothing but interrupt the “lovers motions.” This accusing and whining tone sets the stage for this poem as well as the attitude the speaker has towards the sun. The speaker goes on to further insult the sun by mocking the sun and calling it a “saucy pedantic wretch.” All of these descriptive adjectives allow the reader to have a better understanding of the way the speaker feels about the sun. In likes 7 and 8, the speaker uses apostrophe as well as personification and tells the sun to go call to country ants and court-huntsmen. This is significant because almost all things on earth depend on time with the sun rising and setting, unlike love. Donne uses juxtaposition by comparing earthly things such as ants harvesting, which depends all on time, to love which is......

A Thousand Splendid Suns

...Alefa Chowdhury 12-09-13 7th Hour A Thousand Splendid Suns A Thousand Splendid Suns, written by Khaled Hosseini, is a story that is set place in modern-day Afghanistan. It is a story of two particular women who live under the control of a persecuting husband and the infamous rule of the Taliban. In A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini shifts the narrative perspective throughout the different sections. Overall, the story is told from an omniscient third person. The external character shows the reader world events as they happen and how it affects the main characters, Mariam and Laila, with a factual, unbiased perspective. As the story progressed, we switch to third person limited to understand Mariam and Laila’s individual struggles and experiences, yet we never know what any of the other characters are thinking unless it is said. By shifting narrative perspectives, Hosseini demonstrates how women help each other achieve a shared goal in a time of civil war and social inequality. And through these two women (Laila and Mariam), Hosseini creates a mind-blowing, adventure of regret, despair, tragedy, and more importantly, redemption. The book begins with separate perspectives of each woman, and how they consequently come together in the same household. Mariam, to start with, is actually a result of the shameful act that her father, Jalil Khan, a wealthy business man of Herat, committed when he impregnated one of his servants. As a result of this...

The Hays Essay

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY The Hays Essay Submitted to Dr. John Mclean, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of the course OBST 515– D03 Applying Old Testament Laws Today by Derrick Burney November 6, 2014 Christian and the Old Testament Laws (1) J. Daniel Hays approach is to give a principle factor to the Old Covenant laws which makes them practical for today’s believers. Hay’s believes that the New Covenant takes believers up from under the rules of the Old Covenant Laws (Romans 7:1-6), except when the laws have been restated by Jesus. One of the laws Hays gives from the Old Covenant laws which he use as an principle in today’s practical purpose is “Thou shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Hay’s believes when Jesus stated “You have heard the commandment that says, you should not commit adultery”. But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mathew 5: 27-28 NLT). Hay’s believes since Jesus restated this law in the New Testament that makes it a practical law for today’s purposes. My understanding of the article is we have to understand the differences between the Old Covenant laws and the New Covenant laws. Believers must understand through Jesus teaching which ones are to be practical for today’s living purposes. Reconciliation of the Old Testament (2) When you look at the scripture Jesus states,......

The Hays Code

...The Hays Code How Did it Cause the Movie, A Streetcar Named Desire, to be Changed From the Play Abstract This paper will address changes from the play, A Streetcar Named Desire, that were made in the production of the movie due to the regulations of the Hays Code. Specific changes will be discussed. The conclusion of the paper will address if the changes still allowed the movie to effectively convey the original theme of the play. The Hays Code How Did it Cause the Movie, A Streetcar Named Desire, to be Changed From the Play In the early 1900’s, movie producers began shocking audiences by portraying themes that were socially unacceptable to discuss in public at that time. Films of this era were not censored, but state and local boards made the determination of whether a film could be shown or not. If they deemed a film as “inappropriate”, they simply banned it. The film The Birth of a Nation was a catalyst to changes in this. This film was banned in the state of Ohio. The company that handled the distribution of this film sued the state claiming it was a violation of the due process clause and the First Amendment. This suit went to the United States Supreme Court as the case Mutual Film Corporation v. Industrial Commission of Ohio (1915). In simple terms, the court ruled that films did not carry the same protections as books and other types of speech. (The Hays Code) This led to the creation of The Production Code of 1930, by Will H. Hays. This code became......

...public on whether on the whole grade repetition is beneficial to students and the society at large. On the one hand, there is a widespread view among psychologists and part of the pedagogical profession that early grade failure does not lead to any improvement in school achievement (McCoy and Reynolds (1999)), while raising drop out (Jimerson et al. (2002)), with negative - or at least nonpositive - effects on socio-emotional adjustment (Jimerson et al. (1997)).3 Low self-esteem - possibly due to a student being disenfranchised or stigmatized by peers, teachers or family -, lower expectations on the part of the student or the environment around him, or the cost of having to readjust to a new class (and possibly a new teacher) as a result of repetition, might worsen a student's school outcomes. This might even result in a student dropping out of school if he is older than compulsory schooling age (or above compulsory schooling level), or even before it when enforcement of compulsory schooling laws is lax, as in many developing countries. Whether due to disenfranchisement, stigmatization or pure rational calculation,4 the potential effect of grade failure on drop out makes the problem of grade repetition less apparent - if drop out happens immediately after grade failure - but the consequences of grade failure not less serious. A different view emphasizes the benefits of grade repetition. Grade retention might reinforce a student's knowledge or discipline, with potential......

About the Sun - Summary

...ABOUT THE SUN The Sun is our nearest star. Its light and heat make life on Earth possible. When did the Sun form?  Scientists calculate the Sun and solar system formed at approximately the same time, 4.55 billion years ago. This is based on the ages of the oldest objects that we have sampled from our solar system, meteorites. How did the Sun form? The solar nebula theory describes how most scientists think the Sun formed. A cloud of hydrogen and helium gas and dust existed in space. It began to compress and eventually gravitational forces pulled the gas and dust together and the cloud collapsed. The collapsing cloud began spinning and flattening into a disk. Much of the material was concentrated in the center of the spinning mass, where compression resulted in a “protosun” of increasing density and temperature. Eventually the heat and pressure increased to the point where nuclear fusion of hydrogen occurred and the Sun ignited. By exploring our universe with tools such as the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have discovered stars in various stages of formation predicted by the solar nebular theory. How much longer will the Sun shine?  Scientists predict the Sun will shine for another 7 billion years! They arrive at this estimate by calculating how fast the hydrogen in the Sun's core is being converted to helium. Approximately 37% of the Sun's hydrogen has been used since the time of its formaton, 4.55 billion years ago. (Lang, 1999) How big is the Sun?  The Sun's diameter......
