Tourist Places :

Govardhan Hill :

Govardhan Hill is situated at a distance of 22 km from Mathura. It has been stated in the Holy Bhagwat Gita that according to Lord Krishna, Govardhan Parvat is not different from him. Therefore, all his worshipers worship the pure rocks of the hill just like they worship his idol. The hill is made up of sandstone and stands 80 ft tall with a circumference of 38 km. Some interesting places one gets to visit the hills including Mansi Ganga, Mukharvind, and Daan Ghati.

History says that Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan Hill during his childhood on one finger to save his village of Mathura from fierce rains and thunderstorm. This hill is thereby considered holy and is visited by worshipers on Guru Purnima, Govardhan Puja in devotion by walking 23 km barefoot around the mountain. After Lord Krishna had saved his village, he told everyone to worship the hill which is why Govardhan Puja is a day after Diwali. It is a serene place, and definitely, a must visit!

Dwarkadheesh Temple :

The temple was constructed in the year 1814 by the treasurer of the Estate of Gwalior, Seth Gokul Das Parikh. The temple lies nearby Vishram Ghat. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna. Since Lord Krishna is also referred to as ‘King of Dwarka’, hence the temple got its name. Lord Krishna and Radha are the primary deities in the main shrine of the temple. The temple has paintings and carvings inside which give an ethereal look to the temple. Visitors from all over visit the place especially during the festival of Janmashtmi.

Kurukshetra District of Haryana at a Glance

About Kurukshetra District :

In the very first verse of Bhagwad-Gita (धर्मक्षेत्रे कुरुक्षेत्रे समवेता युयुत्सवः | मामकाः पाण्डवाश्चैव किम् अकुर्वत संजय ||), Kurukshetra is described as DHARAMKSHETRA i.e. ‘Region of righteousness’. Kurukshetra is a place of great historical and religious importance, revered all over the country for its sacred association with the Vedas and the Vedic Culture. It was here that the battle of Mahabharat was fought and Lord Krishna preached His Philosophy of ‘KARMA’ as enshrined in the Holy Bhagwad-Gita, to Arjuna at Jyotisar. According to Hindu mythology, the Kurukshetra is spread over, a circuit of about 48 KOS which includes a large number of holy places, temples and Sacred tanks connected with the religious events/rituals, Mahabharat War and Kurus, the ancestor of Kouravas and Pandavs. Kurukshetra is intimately related to the Aryan civilization and its growth all along the sacred river Saraswati.

It is believed that all the holy waters of all sacred rivers flow/converge into Kurukshetra’s Sannehit Sarovar, at the time of Somavati Amavasya & Solar eclipse. It is believed that those who visit this area reside here, take bath in the tanks, or die in Kurukshetra go to heaven after death. The Mahabharata states that one who dies at Kurukshetra attains salvation after death. It is said that the Almighty God after having perfomed, divine, yajnas created the universe here.
It is the land where the sage Manu penned his ‘Manusmriti’ and where learned ‘rishis’ compiled the Rig Veda and Sama Veda.Kurukshetra is named after King Kuru, who also performed a supreme sacrifice to bring prosperity to the land and his people.

The Right Time to Prepare for JEE 2015 is NOW!

Sometimes despite preparing well in time for the exam we feel unsure about it. But at times though we might start late, we feel much confidant. So it is basically not about how much time we put into the preparations, but how focussed we are and what kind of methodology we follow. This whole idea is to imply that it is still not late to start preparing for JEE 2015!

  •  Understand Syllabus and Pattern 

p-1

 If you are still thinking about beginning your preparations, then understanding the syllabus and pattern of JEE 2015 is best way to strategize your preparation. Find your strong and weak points, then accordingly plan how to go about it.

 

  • JEE and Boards – Prepare Simultaneously

p2

The new selection system gives importance to the Class XII board marks as well, so you must prepare for both the exams together! Start with the NCERT problems as your 12th class boards depend on it. Also, they are the building blocks (basics) for the JEE syllabus. Thus, thorough the NCERT syllabus. 

  •  Managing Time 

p3

Exam pressure takes a toll on everyone and as the clock goes on ticking away, the confusion starts getting deeper and deeper. So in the beginning itself, devote time equally to all the 3 subjects. Map your strengths and weaknesses. Devote time accordingly. Also, try and finish topic by topic and not in a haphazard way.

 

  •  Find the Right Resources

p4

There are numerous books and material available for JEE preparation in the market. But you just can’t buy everything, right? Even if you buy ten books, there would be many others with problems of different types. So instead of going behind too many resources, stick to your textbooks, class notes and coaching class study material. A thorough preparation of these with a strong command over the basics is enough to do the trick! 

  • Month- wise Planning

p5

Apart from the time management, make a monthly time table to track your progress. As you would go on finishing topic, you will start feeling more and more confident about your preparations. You can finish the course ideally by Feb and in the month of Feb you can do a thorough revision for the Board exams falling in March 2015. And in April and May 2015 you devote all the time for revision of your JEE study material, revision of concepts, theories and formulae and for solving mock tests and practice papers.

  •  Don’t Fall for Selective Studying

p6

If you have prepared well and if you would know the seriousness of JEE 2015, you would not tend to go to the important topics. But one thing is rather important to understand that all the 3 subjects are important and have to be completed simultaneously. Also, the syllabus for Class 11 and 12 contribute about 45% and 55% respectively of IIT- JEE question papers. So prepare accordingly.

  •  Stay Away from Negative Influence

p7

There might be relatives or acquaintances who would try to demotivate you or pull you down. Do not listen to them. They would just make it difficult for you. At the end it is just your will-power and confidence which will take you to places. There are students who clear competitive exams despite lack of any resources. So just listen to your heart and be amongst those who support you and believe in you.
