You are the brand

Some are so conscious of everything they wear and some just not bothered.

While both extremes are not good, what I would like to say is:

People are crazy of brands and some save up to own that brand

What is important is not the brand but what you look in them

No one is going to run to you and turn the label, what is important is the way the garment fits and the colour that coordinates with your complexion and how you carry it

Be the brand and flaunt your attitude and the brands will want you to wear them

Pity them

We come across people of all sorts, some good m, some bad and some extremely ugly by nature.

Some treat us well and some just hate the sight of us

Met few people who are really harsh and insulting and arrogant who expect each one to bow to them.

While it is so easy to hate them, I also thought of having a closer look at them and their life.

I realised that such people themselves are very very disturbed in their personal life. They don’t have a full family or something in their personal life is not pleasant

When they other enjoy simple pleasures and travel, they internally feel deprived and that leads to a lot of irritation and anger without reason

They are not respected by people whom they care about that they try to cover up for that respect from others specially those who are inferior to them either by designation or class

Such people are like a thorn to many and harm others personal life and try to ensure that everyone is as restless and unhappy as them

Their heart goes out to you when you share your problems and sorrows and they feel pleasure within, a feeling that someone else is as unhappy as them

They like people who glorify them without reason, they are blinded and cannot differentiate between fake and real as they heart craves to be wanted by someone somewhere

I feel that when we hire people in our organisation, a deeper look in one’s personal life is important especially if hiring is done in senior designations as such people can only harm many others and affect families in an adverse way

Things we didn’t learn in school

There are many things that are taught by our parents and school.

We are educated on all aspects like history geography, moral science etc.

What happens once we start working, when jobs get competitive and one can get ahead of you at your cost.

What’s the decision we can follow all the values or most importantly should we?

I know of many nice honest people and I see that that they are living a life of compromise and sometimes poverty.

I can’t even see contentment… but regret.I see people without attachments and emotions travel and prosper travel the world while there are some who sacrifice their life for their family. I know of people who are not married just because they don’t know who will take care of their family

Where is this school that teaches us to live life the right way and be happy.I see so many people wasted and indecisive.

Thoughts always cross my mind that 90% of our life we live by the lessons taught by life … only that by the time you are wise it’s just too late!!!

Who have never been there for me

Since last year I have been living minimalistic life.

Need based purchases, replacing new things and donating old things and limiting unnecessary purchase.

Same with relationships … three years back I was hit my personal crisis and I felt stuck with nowhere go and nothing to do.

In reached out to all I knew, I requested, pleaded and begged

Some ignored, some pretended to hear and help and some just rejoiced.

I have cleared the last shelf … I have friends but family is there to stay and they will be by my side no matter what

I have no time for formalities and therefore no time for people and have not kept them for name sake

I am sure they will never miss me and I am sure that when I see them again they will refresh the wounds

So goodbye and stay happy wherever you are

Time precious time

As I live each day I only believe more and more on the essence of time.

We postpone things, we have reasons to not go for invites and we sometimes we are just lazy

Think of once again before estranging people and feeling offended and closing relationships

Don’t close doors open new ones each day …. networking can increase your horizon … knowledge and new ideas enlighten you

As what you have today is precious and the same set of things or people might not be there tomorrow

I feel life is just meant to enjoy… there will be hurdles and if you look back, each phase has had its challenges that seem so small today.

Meet as many people attend as many parties and look your best each day

Live your life …. Accept people the way they are …. Give and share … time is precious guys and it’s is passing as you read this as well

Discipline at the cost of your life

I was a very disciplined person sometime back, I had a schedule and I would stick to it at any cost.

I loved the respect and at ration and each praise made me more and more perfect to set more and more rules

I was firm confident and un moveable on the targets set by me, while I was very proud of myself …. Then one day something struck me

Many a times I missed important events to be regular at a class I had enrolled, many a times walked out on guests, sometimes ignored family

When I think back those moments would be much more cherishable than a class attended

Discipline sometimes is an ego a stubbornness and selfish

Define discipline for your own self, it is good to be regular it is good to follow something and to be passionate but don’t do it at the cost of things that are presihable

The same moment and same people will never be there at the same time and give you the same experience

Don’t take me wrong, discipline is mandatory when it comes to studies, your job and other things that facilitating your family and their comforts

But discipline that is uncompromisable and at the cost of the needs and wishes of your near and dear ones is just not worth it

Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

Like almost many of us I feel like I have been there done that, seen so many ups and downs and sometimes feel like more downs than ups

My life has been quite a roller coaster and the journey has been quite bumpy with some crashes

Each time I experience these things, time seems to stop and life stagnates, each day is a living hell

Worries haunt and we fabricate and imagine of things that can never happen to us

The tunnel guys is really dark and long and while we are there it feels cold inside

I often wonder is there any hope at all, will I survive this or is it a road to disaster, a road to compromise and permanent downfall

I must assure you that there is light at the end of the tunnel …. Yes it is there

While some of us are so stubborn to even accept that probably today might be better than yesterday

What we expect is a replica of what happened previously and things to be the same before the day of disaster

Every moment is the perishable and each new moment is new, we need to let go of the past to keep our hands to pull the reins and control the future

There is hope for each one living and the faster and harder you try you will see the ray of hope and eventually blossom under direct sunlight

Don’t lose hope just try try and try and trust me you will have a success story to share one day….

तू सुल्लाज जा

तू सुल्लाज जा

जीवन के इस सफ़र में बहुत से लोग मिल जएँगे

कोई तुम्हारी तारीफ़ करके कोई तुमको ऊल्झा जाएँगे

निडर रहने तुम हमेशा क्यूँकि तुमको अपना साथ भी निभाना है

मत भूलना कि तूम भी कुछ हो और तुमको आगे ही आगे कदमबढ़ाना है

बहुत से सपने पूरे करने की है दिल में है तमन्ना फिर क्या मतलब है यूँ अचानक से ठम जाना

हिमालय की चोटी पर हम जैसा ही कोई पहुँच पाया है

तुज मैं भी है वो क़ाबिलियत फिर तू अपने आप से क्यूँ टकराया है

हाथ पकड़ के तुमने चलना सीखा, अब तो अपने बल पे जीना है

मत संक़ोच कर हिम्मत कर और चल आगे करके अपना सीना है

कितनो को तू इल्ज़ाम देगा अगर कोई नाकामी है

कभी तो समाज के इस चीज क़ा इसका ज़िम्मेदार हुन मैं

जब तक अपनी गलती को ना अपना पाएगा

तू बस उसी चीज को दुबारा दोहरायें गा

दूसरों को सूलझाने से पहले , खुद को पहले सुलजाना है

फिर तुम देखो ज़मीन और आसमान डोनो पे क़ाबू पाना है

My passion does not pay the bills

I envy people you have a passion career , they pursue their dreams and they live each day like a vacation

I wonder that when your passion becomes your job does it remain as relaxing does it not give you stresss like any other job

My passion is writing, counselling, helping people both by listening to their problems and also providing monetary support according to my minimum capacity

My passion cannot pay my bills nor take care of my family at the moment.

I am currently at a job that is monotonous and stressful and target oriented.

I derive my passion Through my job, I draft impressive emails which caters to my writing skills and the team counts on me … feels good

I listen to people in trouble and patiently counselling them whenever possible and the salary I get is often shared with people who are in dire need

While my dream is still to try to open a counselling clinic where I can counsel and help people in need, cater to the masses not only the classes. Also charge them a nominal fee, so that a person already in trouble does not have a additional burden of huge counselling fees.

I wanted to write this article to address the people who currently can’t follow their passion, please note there is always a way to live your dreams and include your passion in your current job and if that is totally impossible the salary can always allow you to enroll for something on weekends till you are confident that ….. your passion will pay your bills

Do write back with your views and thoughts … Will help me too : )

End of an Era

We live and we grow under the guidance of many at different points of time.

Every period a different mentor, parents then teacher, then friends and then bosses.

I was fortunate to have a boss who was great and someone unmatchable, mighty, strong and profound.

I grew under his leadership and shared his glory, being with him I was shielded from the evils, his power protected me.

My family was prospering, my life was full with abundance of all sorts. In the lap of luxury and happiness and smiles were a part of me.

But the truth is I never realised then and I when I realised that ,even the worst times I faced during those times were the best where i compare to the current times.

Visionaries and great men are born and they have an aura that surrounds them and it pulls everyone attached to them upwards in life.

When life attaches you to these people you also become fortunate and gain with the tide.

Today given his absence I work with people who are much inferior in thoughts and action and I feel defamed.

It is difficult to respect and appreciate their thoughts, their best thoughts seem so petty and pettier are people who surround and support them.

When it’s an end of an era …… it’s an end of an era
