Perception : good or bad ?

Standard

​That person is gonna create so much of trouble, you know. Reason ?? Dude, he is a bihari. You know how they are.
What do you call this ? You call this intuition ? Prediction? Foresight?? Nah. This is a simple and flat case of wrong perception. 
Perception, the way in which something is regarded, understood, or interpreted. Why does one have a perception? Is it because, someone is forced to have one ? What happens is that if a certain action is repeated by a certain set of individual or a person, that becomes the identity of that individual or group. These actions may be good or bad, based on which people make a good or bad perception respectively.
But, the bigger aspect to this is that, if one person does one thing, how does it determine that, every other individual related to him or her will do the same ? I do not see any sense in this logic. Do you ? If one person is a nuisance, then may be he or she is the rotten egg in the basket, and not that the entire basket is rotten. Same way, a person being good never determine that everyone related will be good. At least, not always.
What do we do then ? Question is not worth being asked. Because, answer is simple. Do not create perception. Do not bound a person’s identity to a certain act or behavior. He/she may have done that out of some reasons, which you might not be aware of. And, may be, that action would have been correct, just that you failed to decipher that properly.
Impact of perception in people’s mind is real tragic guys. It makes many suffer a lot. Despite, them being very different from that perception.
Also, to everyone else, who are victim of this perception tragedy, pls be real real careful with what you do, what you speak and how you act, coz somewhere, someone might be creating a perception of it. Be careful.
Be natural, be good and be genuine. Perception never helps. All it does is, it hurts. Either you or the other. Refrain from it.
Tata. Bbye !!

The Nation : Love for it

Standard

​Pride, Galore, Patriotism, etc. were all the words and feelings, the lady in tears were being told about. These were the feelings that every single person around the tri-colour wrapped martyr was having right then. Life of the martyr seem to be such a big inspiration for every one in the country, the day this happened. Every one was in tears, but at the same time, they all felt their chest puffed up with pride. The Lady, his wife, she was in tears and in almost unconscious state. She somewhere knew the fact that, her husband is martyred fighting for the lovely land of mother India, which he considered as closest to his heart and his supreme duty was only to protect it. But, also she knew that, getting same respect and dedication back from the other, who will handle the proceedings of further formalities, is a distant hope.
The lady, in sorrow of demise, of her loving husband, was uncertain whether to mourn the death, or to be proud of the sacrifice, or start thinking about the time ahead. She, no doubt, was proud of what her husband has achieved, but she also knew that, taking care of time that was to come, will be equally brutal and tough. She is the one, whom the children will look to, whenever they need anything – emotions,care, or literally anything.
Then she saw, a pool of people gathered around and were talking about the courage and dedication of the tri-colour wrapped martyr. This gave her a sense of assurance that things are not gonna be as though as she once thought of. But, alas ! This assurance vanished pretty immediately, as she looked over to the other side where two kids, completely mixed with mud and dust, playing in their own world, and unaware of what has happened. They didn’t know, that they have lost someone whom they have called “Papa” for whatever time they have been together. She immediately realised that, these kids are now, the sole responsibility of hers. She has to act as father and the mother both for her entire life.
Few days passed by, she happened to watch TV and hear some news. She came across an announcement, where they said, her family will be awarded with cash, to look after the needs of the family. She somewhere knew that these are nothing but, a publicity stunt for the politicians. Still, she tried approaching the officials for it, only to get a response that the things take time and she will get the cash award, as it comes to them, sooner or later. She was disappointed as she was walking out of the official’s cabin, someone told her, give them something and you’ll get ur money. Hearing this she said, my husband gave his life to protect the nation, let me do my share by not bribing, no matter i get the award or not. Salute to the lady !! Salute to the soldiers !! Salute to the Nation !! Jai Hind !!

A blind race to spoil our lives

Standard

What we all have seen throughout our lives is that, our parents, grandparents and all elders in the family has always stressed upon doing things at right time. They never were in favor of delaying things or for that matter doing things before they are supposed to happen. What this has done or made sure is that – things did happen in ideal way, if not better. This logic for them applied to each and every single aspect of life. They never broke those traditions that was being followed since ages and many levels of ancestors. This tradition got inherited from the long standing family bloodlines, without exceptions. This was ever neither questioned nor broken by anyone. More or less, this has always been proved correct.

One aspect of this tradition was/is the institution of marriage. There was an age decided and for both genders to get married and go on with their social duties. Except for few, they all followed it and I do not remember a single instances reported in history where this has backfired or been proved wrong. So, can we call it correct tradition? Or should be called just another tradition which can be discarded at ease by calling ourselves modern?

I believe most of us will answer the above two questions in negative for the first one and positive for the second. Now, who decides if the answers are correct ? Who ensures that what we are following today are the right thing to do ?

Today, we have become a participant of the blind race where we all are running with our eyes fixed on one thing, money. Is this what we are supposed to do? Our existence to this immortal world is to come earn and make a pile of money and depart ? Is that all we are supposed to do ? Definitely not guys, we are not here to get a pile build up of money and buy some materials which provides us with some pleasure so that we can continue our race towards being rich and then richer ? How on this earth is this justified. This definitely can not be justified. For sure not.

There is more to life than money guys.

If I say, money is not at all important. I am for sure not right. Money is important,indeed. But, ask your heart, have you not lost the zynx of life running behind what is just another element of this limited life that we have got. Money is important but not everything.

One very important thing that we have left behind in this blind rush towards getting richer is leading a life. A life is an ideal one if we have a family, a happy family. Agreed ? Yes. Then why are we leaving that very beautiful part of our lives behind. Our tradition that goes beyond written history has proved innumerable times that a happy life and family plays a great role in leading a satisfied life. Agreed, that the way world has changed an shaped in recent times has made this almost impossible to set a fixed age for someone to marry and start a family. But, then this never implies that we get to push the limits beyond limits. We as human beings need to understand that, we can not just keep pushing ourselves to be successful, because being successful does not have a definition. This can mean being a billionaire and for some it could be as small as getting 3 meals a day and a happy family. Moreover, except for the few instances, having a family has never barred someone from being successful. Examples can not be counted as they are so many, but the very relatable ones are Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad,etc.

Now one can say that, we can not expect ourselves to be in the same status as them as the world has changed. To such people I have two answers – A. Remember, they might have been in less tight situation than yours, but then they had limited resources to survive with than what we have today. B. Seriously, isn’t it we,who has worsen the situation and and it difficult for ourselves to survive in ? If you agree to what I answered, then we have one very serious problem in front of us to think of, how to correct this ?

The only way to correct this is by changing what has gone wrong, change our attitude, cut down the never ending list of commodities that we want and not need. We need to get back to the old school of thoughts where they stressed more on a happy life than a richer one. They never indulged into a gold rush, they never had a blind race to earn more and more. This helped them too maintain a hood and healthy work life balance. They never had to actually worry about not spending time with family.

Overall, we need to understand that, what has made this change that – not spending time with family was a rarity and spending time is the bigger rarity now. Unless, we debug and find the root cause of this problem, we can not be truly happy,never. This might seem to be just another article or speech on the life and maintaining pace, but this is what the truth is.

Enjoy life and not just live it. Being a human itself is a blessing, do not waste it by running behind unnecessary things. Love it, Live it the way it should be.

Music : What it does to us

Standard

When we are going thru a state of mind, may be happy, may be sad, may be frustrated, may be annoyed, may be…., etc. What we try to do when we go thru all this ? Whom we look at ? No points for guessing the right answer, we tend to share.

We tend to let others know what we are going thru. This sharing has a great thing in it. It is some sort of magic. We tend to loose stress if we are tensed and happiness just doubles, if we are happy. In short, it helps us feel better, if stressed. Wonderful, if we are feeling good. All this requires is someone by our side, to listen, to understand, to help us decipher our worries, to make us understand what we have, what we achieved should mean to us.

We all love and always wish to have some companion like this by our side, always. Don’t we ?

But, do all have some one or do we have some one every time we need ? I guess, No. Mostly no. What do we do then ? How should we approach to our situation then ? We try to find someone or something around us that can make us feel the same way as some one very close to us can, if not better. What this can be ? Food ? A walk ? It can be any thing, literally anything. Ask me, and I will answer – Music. Music is something that can take us to a different level altogether. It can accompany us in our different moods and different flavors of life.

All of us, each one of us at some point or the other, seek help of music to overcome our stress, tension or to enjoy the happiness, the joy that we feel. Music, not just help us feel better but also, help us overcome the feeling of being lonely. This can prove to be very vital, in a world that we live in today, where everyone is suffering from grave tension and stress. Irrespective of what music we hear, it is almost a guarantee of making us feel upbeat than what we were feeling.

Music, that is why is called as therapy by many scholars and thinkers. It can well may be the reason that, the proverb was coined – Her voice is Music to my ears.

Music – Happy listening friends !! 🙂
