Environment and you

Today is world Environment Day.  We are so busy with our mundane life that we fail to see the flutter of the leaves, the blooming of flowers or the bend of the branches laden with fruits.  Some of us are surrounded by skyscrapers so we are left with the view of just the sunrise and…

I care…

The times when we had physical classes seems a long time ago now.  There are so many advantages of having physical classes.  The best thing is of having eye contact.  This itself speaks volumes and can convey a thousand emotions.  It is an all-powerful tool for a teacher.  Without this, one feels lost and handicapped. …

Idiosyncrasies

Every individual in this world has his or her idiosyncrasy that can unnerve the onlooker. For example, my relative finds it hard to sleep without the blanket that covers her from head to toe, whatever the season.  Another friend must have his bed tea as soon as he wakes up or else he is in…

Stress

Recently I was stressed about what to write on my next blog.  Nothing came to my mind.  I kept trying to think by sitting in front of my laptop hoping that something would click and words would flow like always.  But alas! I sat there for hours and nothing happened.  Was I having the dreaded…

Shades of love

Love is universal.  Love is for all. There are different shades of love we experience in our life.  They are unique and distinct. Love that burns between lovers is so different from the love that we have between friends. The love of a mother is different from the love that a father shows to his…

Nothing lasts forever…

All that you have, all that you see is temporary, for nothing lasts forever.  Therefore avoid getting over-attached to people or things. Relationships change owing to time and experiences.  People change with time.  Sometimes you cannot lay the blame on anyone as circumstances can also be a major cause for change of heart, mind or…

Appreciate the simple extraordinary…

Recognize the works of an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances. You will find innumerable people, ordinary, simple people who have done something extraordinary and yet have no one to applaud and appreciate. Take for example an old lady of seventy in a crazy fit ran out of her simple abode in a village and in that…

EXPERIENCE

It is so much needed by you and me.  Respect experience because it is unique to each person.  Some are rich in experience while others are a little hesitant to jump into the world to see and therefore end up poor in it. We learn to respect and acknowledge experience beginning from our parents and…

Pursuit of Knowledge

Learn new things.  It helps to build  confidence . It keeps you happy.  And it is fun being a student again knowing that this time you will definitely do better. You could try your hand in anything as long as it makes you happy.  And remember there is no age limit to learning.Sometimes a particular skill…

DREAM

I have known of so many success stories that began with a dream. Without following a dream it is difficult to reach anywhere. You will just be wandering. A dream gives you a goal to reach for. Sometimes it is a dream that can help you focus on your future and if the dream is…

TIME

What a common topic to write on! But strangely this is something that very few value. Is it because it appears to be easily available? Or is it because we are so indifferent towards it that we don’t notice it slipping away? These words “time waits for no one” is so apt. Time flies and…

CORONA VIRUS AND LOCK-DOWN

Not long ago I thought I had what is called writer’s block.  Sometimes I wonder if it is just a hypothetical idea. Does this writer’s block really exist?  Or is it that you are not inclined to the arts (as practicality takes the upper hand) so you just don’t move ahead.  I guess with me,…

ADDICTION

If you are contented with yourself then you will never drop down . No use of addictive substitutes will be required to lift you up.

HOBBIES

Pursue your dream with the help of your hobby and be assured of an inner peace – happiness will prevail….

DEATH

Joy and Sorrow, Life and Death are two sides of the same coin. Learn to live with it…..

OLD AGE & OLD HOMES

Happiness lies in sharing and caring especially when you squeeze in precious time for those whom you have taken for granted and now forgotten…..
