LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS: When light is knowledge;darkness is ignorance

BookRix

Since my childhood, I always believed knowledge is power. Even today when I write a book or any blog, I make sure it should invariably be knowledgeable and useful. This book is different; it is a collection of many different topics which makes it interesting and above all knowledge gaining. Some of the information here are purely my very own thoughts and never available elsewhere. You may enjoy reading this book over and over again to retain all what you may find interesting.

Do keep reading my books while finding new information with each one of them. I believe, my readers should benefit in reading my books; the time and money they spend on buying and reading the books should never go wasted; I may never excuse myself for that.

People with a determined mind and physical fitness, should trek at high altitude sometime in their life. Trekking is one grade difficult to walking in the hilly terrains and one grade easier than negotiating the mountain passes. Whatever it may be, trekking seem to be a simple adventure sport, but many a times it turns out to be hazardous and life threatening. From the time, you finish your breakfast and leave the hamlet to start the trek, until the time you return back to the same spot or to any other rest house; you are always at a risk of injury, threat to your life, or at least in a situation of SOS.

I have trekked at high altitudes in India and Nepal with my children, aged 41⁄2, and 8 1⁄2 year olds. They did not take a piggyback to the base camps but trekked at 9000, 13000 and 19000 ft altitudes themselves along with us and other trekkers en-routes. Taking such small children at high altitudes were extremely risky and against the views of most trekkers and even our family elders.

We do love our children and we are concerned about their safety. It is only a good planning and a careful strategy each time you start your trek, that keeps you safe and accident free. In order to ensure almost 100% safety, my wife and I read several books on trekking, before starting out on our first trek in the Nepal Himalayas; unfortunately many vital information were lacking on safety in all these books. Myself being in fitness since childhood, decided to jot down points that were necessary for a good and safe trek. This was necessary for us to come back home safe and sound after enjoying over a fortnight of bone breaking arduous journeys in the mountain trails of Indian as well as Nepal Himalayas, with a baby and a child, both of whom walked steadily, keeping pace with adult trekkers in the trail.

When you leave home until you are back with the experience of trekking, you are prone to many hazards, in the journey as well as in the trails. To ensure that you are safe and well equipped with all the necessities, the same way your grandma or your mom would like you to be in, you need to read this book and carry it along when you start your journey the next time you plan a trek. This small guidebook has endless valuable information which many people and books on trekking, unfortunately, do not provide you with. This is why it is called “God’s guide to safe trekking”, meaning the advice and suggestions here are genuine and sincere which only the Almighty God could provide in such instances, for your safety. The advise in this book is non-commercial and non-biased, not seeking to advertise any specific product or service.

This little book on safe trekking is handy and your friend in need. During your trek, you may go through it every evening, while you relax in one of those hamlets in the trails, tucked in your sleeping bag, against the quiet flowing streams and the crackling sound of the candles.

Have a pleasant and safe trek now and always, God bless you!

One of the great fears many of us face is that despite all our effort and striving, we will discover at the end that we have wasted our life. In A Guide to the Good Life, William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives. In A Guide to the Good Life, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life. Using the psychological insights and the practical techniques of the Stoics, Irvine offers a roadmap for anyone seeking to avoid the feelings of chronic dissatisfaction that plague so many of us. Irvine looks at various Stoic techniques for attaining tranquility and shows how to put these techniques to work in our own life. As he does so, he describes his own experiences practicing Stoicism and offers valuable first-hand advice for anyone wishing to live better by following in the footsteps of these ancient philosophers. Readers learn how to minimize worry, how to let go of the past and focus our efforts on the things we can control, and how to deal with insults, grief, old age, and the distracting temptations of fame and fortune. We learn from Marcus Aurelius the importance of prizing only things of true value, and from Epictetus we learn how to be more content with what we have. Finally, A Guide to the Good Life shows readers how to become thoughtful observers of their own lives. If we watch ourselves as we go about our daily business and later reflect on what we saw, we can better identify the sources of distress and eventually avoid that pain in our life. By doing this, the Stoics thought, we can hope to attain a truly joyful life.
