There is popular song in gujarati. Its lyrics goes like this:
“દીકરો મારો લાડકવાયો દેવ નો દીધેલ છે..” (My son/daughter is blessing of Deva).
do we realize what the word देव/Deva mean here? What are the qualities of Deva?
देव is derived form of दिवु धातु. So देव’s characteristics are tapped in meanings of दिवु dhatu.
As per Panini’s grammar, दिवु is क्रीडाविजिगीषाव्यवहारद्युतिस्तुतिमोदमदस्वप्नकान्तिगतिषु
1) क्रीडा – The one who consider life as a play is DEVA
2) विजिगीषा – The one who has winning attitude is DEVA
3) व्यवहार – The one who is excelled in communication, conducts, commerce, customs, civility is DEVA
4) द्युति – The one whose life is bright is DEVA
5) स्तुति – The one who can praise others(humans, animals, nature) genuinely is DEVA (Genuine praise is very vital part of positive psychology! Those who have studied HR subjects, must be knowing this)
6) मोद – The one who is constantly working for establishing delight in society/ecosystem
7) मद – The one who is able to take pride of self and at the same time can sacrifice it.
8) स्वप्न – The one who has dream/a lofty selfless goal to be meditated on for betterment of mankind
9) कान्ति – The one from whose life, spiritual splendor is constantly radiating.
10) गति – The one who is constantly changing, गमनशील.
The first character of Deva is क्रीडा . If we wish our next generation being blessed by Deva, playing sports and doing exercise is very critical before child planning! Then only it will justify the song lyrics! 🙂 Think about it! Share with teens and newly wedded couples planning for child!
We wish strong Bharat but we hardly work on it. Our present youth is trapped in web of delusion. For them, physical activity matters but as a passion. And it comes with all vices that consumes their body and mind. Many of them even stay away from any form of physical activities and are stuck in gadgets and entertainment obsession. This results into catastrophe, not only in their life but also in all upcoming generations.

May be, that is how decay of genes and strength happens in Kaliyuga.

If you wish your traits to be saved and pass on to next generation, play. Play and exercise for the sake of worship of your body. Not as passion or show-off or status-symbol. For the sake of selfless worship of body that matters not only for your existence but also for well-being of future generations!

Why bother about future generations!

Because they are the custodians of dharma! They are the ones who will protect dharma! And sustain life here and otherwise!


RNA-Dependent Intergenerational Inheritance of Enhanced Synaptic Plasticity after Environmental Enrichment


  • Exercising male mice pass a cognitive benefit to their offspring

  • This phenomenon is mediated by altered expression of sperm RNA

  • Levels of miR212/132 in sperm play a key role in this intergenerational effect


Physical exercise in combination with cognitive training is known to enhance synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory and lower the risk for various complex diseases including Alzheimer’s disease. Here, we show that exposure of adult male mice to an environmental enrichment paradigm leads to enhancement of synaptic plasticity and cognition also in the next generation. We show that this effect is mediated through sperm RNA and especially miRs 212/132. In conclusion, our study reports intergenerational inheritance of an acquired cognitive benefit and points to specific miRs as candidates mechanistically involved in this type of transmission.

Does physical activity influence the health of future offspring?

Study finds an intergenerational benefit

Physical and mental exercise is not only beneficial for your own brain, but can also affect the learning ability of future offspring – at least in mice. This particular form of inheritance is mediated by certain RNA molecules that influence gene activity. These molecules accumulate in both the brain and germ cells following physical and mental activity. Prof. André Fischer and colleagues from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Goettingen and Munich and the University Medical Center Goettingen (UMG) report these findings in the journal Cell Reports.
