World’s Most Powerful People 2013

In this photo taken on Saturday, July 20, 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin fishes during a mini-break in the Siberian Tyva region (also referred to as Tuva), Russia.
Russian President Vladimir Putin outpaced his American counterpart President Barack Obama in the 2013 Forbes ranking of the World’s Most Powerful People. Russian and foreign experts try to account for this shift and explain its meaning.

Forbes ranked Russian President Vladimir Putin first and U.S. President Barack Obama second in its ranking of the World’s most powerful people in 2013, reflecting the perception that Russia’s credentials on the international stage are improving.

“Putin has solidified his control over Russia while Obama’s lame duck period has seemingly set in earlier than usual for a two-term president — latest example: the government shutdown mess,” Forbes wrote. “Anyone watching this year’s chess match over Syria and NSA leakshas a clear idea of the shifting individual power dynamics.”

The invitations are being sent to the winners of a contest conducted a month ago. Google asked U.S. residents to submit applications through Twitter or its Plus service to explain in 50 words or less how they would use a technology that is being hailed as the next breakthrough in mobile computing.

Mother


In the human experience, the relationship between a mother and her child is the closest to compassion. People call it love but it should not be called love. It is more like compassion than love because it has no passion in it. A mother's love for the child is closest to compassion. Why? Because the mother has known the child in herself; he was a member of her being. She has known the child as part of herself and even if the child is born and is growing the mother goes on feeling a subtle rhythm with the child.

If the child feels ill, a thousand miles away the mother will immediately feel it. She may not be aware of what has happened but she will become depressed; she may not be aware that her child is suffering but she will start suffering. She will make some rationalization about why she is suffering - her stomach is not okay, she has a headache, or something or other - but now depth psychology says that the mother and the child always remain joined together with subtle energy, waves, because they go on vibrating on the same wavelength.

The telepathy is easier between a mother and the child than between anybody else. Or, between twins - between twins telepathy is very easy.

Imam Hussein

No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as
provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Husayn in the battle of Karbala.
What renowned persons have said about Imam Hussain.

Thomas Carlyle (Scottish historian and essayist): “The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Cerebella is that Husain and his companions were rigid believers in God. They illustrated that the numerical superiority does not count when it comes to the truth and the falsehood. The victory of Husain, despite his minority, marvels me!”

Edward Gibbon (English historian and member of parliament): “In a distant age and climate, the tragic scene of the death of Hosein will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.”
(The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, London, 1911, volume 5, p. 391-392)

Mahatma Gandhi (Indian political and spiritual leader): “I learnt from Hussein how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”

Charles Dickens (English novelist): “If Husain had fought to quench his worldly desires…then I do not understand why his sister, wife, and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore, that he sacrificed purely for Islam.”
