When nature calls you!



The first that could have ever come into existence was nature and hopefully that would be the last thing that would remain and obviously in the most unnatural form. Whatever we see around us that had been there much before we started breathing is slowly being replaced by man-made pandemonium, malls and skylines. Work is worship motto has been replaced by the motto work is obsession and this obsession is forcing the people not to concentrate on the nature that still exists.
We should feel privileged for being one of the last generation to witness the beauty of the last remnants of the nature.

People are so much engrossed in their day to day activities that they do not find time to pay heed to the beautiful and large yet minute activities going around them. Large yet minute, why? If we take an example of the sun rise, how many people do you think experience the thrill of watching the rising sun? Most of them don't do, either most of the people sleep or the remaining are in a rush of going to the offices. This rush and unwanted phobia of punctuality has killed the interest of people in discovering the beauty of nature.

Beauty lies everywhere, have you ever noticed the rising sun on a wintry morning? It seems as if  the sun is coming out of the blanket of clouds as it is warm enough, and the spreading lights are like the arms stretching just as we do after we wake up. There is so much to relate and so much to learn from the nature yet we choose to confine ourselves and our thoughts to a computer screen.

Homesick !



Hunger is what keeps the food chain active. The corporate world somewhat resembles the food chain, the only difference is that no one slays or eats anyone. Today it is all about survival of the wittiest, stomach is what drives the motivation and determination of a person. Why food chain? Everyone waits for a job, either someone quits his job and someone replaces him or there are new vacancies, which result in the migration of the youth.

India is among those countries which has got a huge population within the age range of twenty five to twenty eight and that group has got the power of the pen and we all are well aware of the fact that a pen is mightier than a sword. Youngsters leave their home for better job opportunities and in that process they neither get the taste of the home made food nor a glimpse of their parents for years. Yes, internet does bridge the gap but a virtual presence can never beat the warmth of a hug from one's mother.

Evolution is inevitable and so is change. This is what determines the constant migration of the youngsters irrespective of caste and gender. They frequently keep on moving to the booming industrial places or cities in India and all round the world. Adapting to the new lifestyle, the food and a completely new culture seems nothing to them, but somewhere they remember and bear in mind the memories of their hometown and as soon as they come across similar kind of people, happiness knows no limit. Soon as they leave their places, they try to be at home wherever they move to but homesickness is the only thing that hovers around. One thing that comes to their rescue is the selfish and exaggerated discussion about the native food and the mouth-watering experiences at the best food stations. 'The way to a man's heart is through his stomach', the quote says it all and this is the first thing that can overpower homesickness, being homesick despite having good food is something which one can experience in Hyderabad.

Resources are limited, time too !


Resources and time go parallely with you, when you divert your path to catch time you lose hold of the resources and when you try to use the resources near you, time walks ahead. 'You come alone' and you have been listening to this phrase ever since your childhood when you did not even have the conscience to understand the difference between nothing and everything. When you finally start realizing the importance and the benefits of the resources around you, time has already gained so much speed that you start giving up.

Now, if you be with yourself, appreciating and applauding all the things that you already have and all the time that you have without even trying to explore new things; resources will not wait for you. When you finally wake up from the appreciation sleep, new resources will replace the old ones and you will consume more time to adapt to those new aliens.

The best possible way, not to regret about anything later in our lives is to try to keep a balance between time and the consumption of time to utilize the resources at the right time.

Getting into a routine.


Getting into a routine, doesn't it sound like getting inside a cage? The good thing about this cage is that you have got the keys. In order to be a recognized personality, one has to follow a routine or one can say that a person has to become a prisoner of time. The continuously ticking seconds and minutes become the bars of the cage and once a person is imprisoned, he can unleash himself only when his mind and soul has either given up or has dissolved in the continuous turmoil of the routine.The truth is that routine is necessary but if you have got the keys then why keep yourself locked 24 x 7. Every now and then one should choose to come out of the isolation(virtually created) and try to fly, swim and even crawl for a change.

Duty, what comes to your mind when you come across that word? Is it responsibility, punctuality and all the good traits? You be good and you do good but if you are not well, how can you perform? In order to be good one has to spend time on self, analyse things and ask questions to himself. That is the only way by which one can deliver. Once you start understanding yourself, getting into a routine will no more be a mundane task or a difficult one too.

Be silly not shy !




The most important thing that is missing now a days is a small smile on the faces around you, laughter can only be heard in the laughter therapy classes. Stress has taken over everything, the shares of optimism are losing their value in the stock market of mankind. If you are searching for answers, be it any, you can surely try to help reduce the stress around you just by spreading happiness. How will that provide answers to your question? It will not, but it would in the process give you a sense of satisfaction and your stress will be reduced too.
If you are humble enough and practice gratitude and sometimes if you act silly as well, people around you will surely feel good. They will get an opportunity to laugh out loud and if being silly makes you an hypocrite then you can be hypocrite for the rest of your life for the betterment of the society. If you choose to be shy, you will end up being an introvert and you will remain a spectator to the events of the society, until and unless you change your mind.

Opinion !



We are all unique and the most important thing that determines our uniqueness is our ability to have an opinion about anything or everything. This is what makes us non identical, our conscience, sub-conscious and our IQ determines our opinion. Opinion or opinions might be same but the most important factor is having one, some might be blatant enough not to have an opinion; it is for such people that having opinion is not mandatory for survival. People who blindly or willingly follow others without even having the eagerness to do something new, should never even dare to do so as their efforts would be futile. People of that kind do not have the heart to challenge the authority. Ironically, you don't have to challenge the authority always or you need not have an opposing attitude always as positive things or good things might come easily. It has become a habit to doubt, if people get things easily or at a cheap price,they doubt the quality; this kind of attitude has been instilled in our minds by the ongoing events.



Once you start having an opinion and a right conscience then you will not have to follow anybody else's footsteps, you will be the creator of the path of your own destiny. You will be a self made man, people will always have time to question your beliefs as most of them are leading a mundane and robotic life-style. What would determine the rightness of your conscience? Things which you would be doing later in your life, whether those affect the society in a positive manner at large or not, the answer is as simple as that. Determination, self-belief, confidence and blessings from all those people around you, will be the fuel and once you are up to it, no one will be able to stop you.

Note: Sorry for being so late, I will be posting regularly. Thank you for being regular readers.

YOU ARE NOT ONE!





There are thousands of people around you, you find hundred more everyday; talk or interact with fifty new characters some other day. It is really not possible to know each and every one of them, but you are one. Are you really one? Today, this world exists because of prejudice and so most people intentionally or unintentionally prove that. No, you are not one; you are equal to the number of people who notice you every day, now you will try to create an equation of your amount by putting limits and continuity. Every pair of eye which notices you is controlled by a brain which has a unique sense of prejudice and that prejudice creates a different character of you and hence you are not one.
You are travelling on a bus, you are carrying your bag as you always do and people who create different forms of you notice you mostly because of your dress, your hair and your bag. One day you hit a man with your bag, the man looks at you with disgust as if the hit was intentional. Now he was one of the thousands of people who are around you, yet he thought that the hit was intentional. When do you actually hit a person? You hit a person, either when you are really angry on someone or when you have known that person for years; but he was none of them. Still he thought that the hit was intentional as he had prejudged you, he had predetermined or he had calculated an image of you after the hit, with the help of his prejudice.
Do your friends know you, or do you know your friends? All of us judge each other by the faces and faces are not always real. You behave nicely with some, badly with a few and do not behave at all with some and respective images and impressions are created and hence you are different for different kinds of friends, yet you call them friends or family, just because you know their names and place they come from or the virtual knot that exists. If you have not yet known yourself, how can you afford to know someone else? Do you know yourself? Who are you?
