From the very ancient times, people in the great land of India have inspired to realize and witness the divine power of supreme god. A rich and refined culture is a witness that there have been many manifestations of the divine on this land in various forms. It is clear that happiness and prosperity of a nation are not possible without the blessings of the divine. Human birth will time and again get deluded in the darkness of ignorance. Crooked, violent, and evil forces will regularly try to pose dangers of humanity and religion. To stop inhuman and incest forces on earth, goddess Durga has incarnated nine times already to save the world from the danger of evil. The third form of the goddess is known as Chandraghanta who is worshiped as the third manifestation of Durga and who is the dispeller of pain and fear. She fulfills the wishes of devotees with her generous blessings. She had incarnated on the third day of Navratri. She is the giver of desires and boons. She controls the transmission of various sound forms across the world. With her worship, the hearing energy is enriched and one can get connected to the celestial sounds. She is the slayer of demons and savior of devas, humans, and many other living creatures. In her bell (gong) she is holding many astonishing sounds and hence known as “Chandra-ghanta” because she holds the moon on her forehead. Goddess Chandraghanta is famous amongst devotee, she has a golden complexion and is very bright. Many groups of asuras get killed with the horrifying sounds of her gong. She has ten arms, of which, she holds (from upper arm) in her right arms, lotus, arrow, bow, rosary, respectively. In the left arms, trishula, sword, gadaa, kamandalu, and gesture of fight. She rides a lion and saves the world from the demonic beings by killing them. This form of goddess Durga is ever ready to save the world from evil forces and enemies.
According to legends, when Sati burned her body in the yagya agni, she took rebirth as Parvati to Parvatraj Himalaya. Parvati married Lord Shiva. On the day of their marriage, Lord Shiva arrived with all his Aghoris and Ghosts to take Devi Parvati along with him. On seeing this form of Shiva, her parents and all the guests were horrified.
Looking at all this, Parvati transformed herself into Goddess Chandraghanta and approached Lord Shiva. She requested him to reappear in the form of a charming prince. In the mean time, she revived her family from the shock and erased all their unpleasant memories. Since then, Devi Parvati is worshiped in her Chandraghanta avatar as the goddess of peace and forgiveness.
Legend of Goddess Sri Chandraghanta
Goddess Chandraghanta incarnated as the third form of goddess Durga in order to kill the demons. Goddess did justice to devas by destroying the great army of demons in the heavens. As she is a kind goddess for the whole world, she takes care of all devotees and removes their pain. She is the inherent intellect of people which allow them to gain wisdom and understand the scriptures. You are the one and only who saves those drowning in the ocean of samsara. Her face is glowing as a bright moon and she has a smiling expression on her face. But on the contrary, her face became fierce and red in color like the rising moon, her eyebrows frowned when looked at the demon Mahishasura. After seeing such a terrifying face, demons died instantly. None can ever stay in front of such a ferocious energy. O, Devi! Bless us with your affection. Because of your affectionate aspect, the whole world survives, and your terrifying form is the reason of the destruction of many of races/clans. This was evident when the might army of Mahishasura was destroyed in moments due to your fierce aspect. As soon as the goddess took her bow to kill the demons, the whole universe resonated with the might sounds of the bow. At the same time, the great lion of goddess also started roaring loudly. These terrifying sounds weakened the hearts of demons and killed most of them instantly.

While we talk about the leadership, the persona having capabilities to transform the vision, in reality, taking all teams along with him, becoming a guiding light, motivator all the time to reach the final goals. We never thought earlier about the comparing and taking an example of leadership qualities before on Whatsapp Group Administrator. The following write-up is inspired by few WhatsApp group where I am an admin as well as my day to day experience of being an Entrepreneur.
Vision: Creating a group on a certain theme and make it successful is a vision of the Group Admin, and he or she makes it happen by having a thought in mind first. Certain people create a group on the theme of School members, college students, certain company members or some industry altogether. Some groups are of special interest or like-minded people who wish to exchange ideas on very prompt medium. Have read somewhere that the first ingredient of success is to dream a great dream and if you can dream it, you can do it. Our leaders are also visionary and they led us to some goals and achievements.
Establishment: People need courage and a strong commitment to establishing something new, on which they are not sure about the clear-cut goals and guidelines. Group admin creates a group by having certain thoughts in mind, like from what will be a theme, first conversation, who will be group members, from where he or she will get those number and etc etc. The small things matter, micro-planning required, even if you are at top level being a leader. The planning while and before establishment makes the leaders confident and makes him aware of the potential problems lie in the path. The foresight will help teams to find a solution.
Selection / Recruitment :
Selection of members in Whatsapp group is also a very important task since the activeness of group and members lies on this criteria. Even in some cases where the count of members increases above 50, Admin needs to select some inactive members to remove and add new aspirants in the group. What exactly the Admin does in this process. Selection of suitable member and add them in a Group, Monitoring of Performance ( Activeness, effectiveness, and Value) of the group members. Take the decision to remove and add new members. Same is happening in the Corporate world. In today’s scenario, the Corporate is totally Performance driven and an employee is rated, graded, awarded and terminated based on the performance.
Whatsapp group Admin admin generally makes and helps others to break the rules either way. I have seen certain Admin, who restrict members by posting unwanted material, photos or contents on racism which may not generate a healthy discussion. It is a leader who decides how his group will behave. In certain groups there are only light contents will be forwarded whereas some groups are so active where they discuss technology, job opportunities, current affairs which adds value to your knowledge.
Conflict Resolution :
Many members have a difference of opinion with others still they are active participants and who make the group alive, it is a leader who keeps them alive and encourages them to talk and share their views whereas applicable. In some of the cases, Admin becomes intermediator to resolve the difference of opinion and drive the discussion to some other fruitful directions.
We never notice such leadership skill but it is everywhere in each individual if a person starts looking at that angle.
Note: Not all WhatsApp admin are leaders! Not every admin is successful in managing the group. A success of a WhatsApp group can be measured with the content and discussion happening in the group. You can ask questions like: Is the purpose of the group still intact? Purpose can expand, Vision can get larger, but it cannot dilute! 🙂 Happy Whatsapping.
