Happy Mother’s Day !!!!

Every child says that his mother is the best mother in the world and for them she will be, but I have some different reasons for saying this. I lost my father in an accident when I was 10 years old. My mother was a housewife at that time, completely unknown to the all odds of the world. When my father was alive, she never wanted to work outside home, all she loves to do household work. But after my father’s death, she decided to do the job although elders of our family didn’t want her to go outside for a job but she did it only for us. She fought with everyone for us.

The woman who was not confident enough to talk with the strangers, gathered the courage to settle down in a new city, completely unknown to her. She had to deal with a lots of unknown people daily as she is working in public dealing section of a govt. office. The woman who has always done whatever others decided for her is taking major decisions of not only her life but for us also. Her one decision impacted my life, decision of doing job. The moment she decided to work, she has put a step forward for our bright future (me and my brother).

She wanted us to be independent after whatever happened to her, she didn’t want the same situation for us thus gave us freedom for taking our own decisions whether it’s a decision of choosing a career or a life partner. What I learnt from her “Life always gives us choices and our decisions creates our own destiny.”

The best part about her is all these problem she faced with the smile, I never able to find out how she can manage to smile in the difficult situations. I still have to grasp this quality from her. At the end, I want to say that “I have not achieved much, but whatever I have achieved because of her love and guidance”. This post is dedicated to my friend, philosopher and guide “My Mother”.



Are You Supporting a Right Person?

Salman Khan’s blind fan following always surprises me. I can digest that his fans can make an illogical movie “Blockbuster” but they are supporting him for committing a homicide. Homicide means killing a human being and for your information a human being was killed in Bandra incident. Even after committing this serious crime the actor (so-called founder of “Being human” organization) did not have the decency to accept it but he is putting all the blame on his driver.

More surprising and embarrassing part is the whole bollywood fraternity is supporting him. They are the same people who made touching movies on under privileged people and law manipulations. Can’t they see how Salman khan tried to manipulate the witnesses? Some witnesses have also complained that they got the threat calls.

These are the lines from Times of India :

“We watch his movies, but hate him”: Bakery worker (Victim)

“Stories that Salman helps poor are myth” : Victim

Initially, Abdulla had the feeling of punishing Salman for running the bakery workers lives. “But gradually I accepted the reality.He is big man, we cannot harm him,” said Abdulla. (Victim)

In 2007, after the court’s direction, four injured victims got compensation of Rs 3 lakh each. Abdulla said that they actually got only Rs 1.8 lakh, as each of them had paid Rs 1.2 lakh as legal charges. Abdulla said that he paid his creditors after receiving the compensation.

(May be no money was left in the “Being Human” organisation’s account)

Still, you want to support him, then there is a big question mark on the India’s youth mentality.

The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side !!!

If someone asks me, “what is the most difficult thing in the world?” I would say, “Being happy” why? because we always compare our current situation with others. 90% people do 90% of the things in daily life because others are doing the same thing. May be we think if a certain things are making them happy they will make us also happy. Some people force their children to pursue engineering because “Pados wala ladka” got a good job in MNC. It doesn’t matter whether their children want to do it or not.

There is one incidence that always makes me laugh related to the same situation, 2 years back when we got our appraisal letter one of my colleague was very happy as the hike was greater than his expectation but after sometime his happiness was vanished as he came to know that his friend got a bit more hike than him.

We always found other people task easier and better. If India loses match everyone start blaming the players even I have heard some people saying like the captain should not allow this player to play matches. We often give judgement to other’s situations also “You have behaved stupidly in that situation” or “This is not such a big task you have taken lots of time” or “You have lot of money, then why you are upset?” Everyone has their own challenges you have no rights to judge them. Even when a child starts walking, its big challenge for him but it is an easy task
for you.

There are some moments in life when we look others and think “How lucky they are?” at that time we are actually insulting our blessings. If you think your neighbor’s life is better than yours then please go and cross-check with them may be they also think in the way because for everyone the grass is greener on the other side 🙂

Grass is Greener
