Being Happy…

We all want to be happy..I feel Happiness is contagious..Meeting others with a smiling face always has its own merits..

There are many ways to be happy – Some of them are:

  1. Being grateful – I think being grateful for what we have is the first step towards happiness – Thanking God for what we have at this stage of life really helps a lot – It is very important to enjoy the present moment instead of cribbing about what we do not have.
  2. Positive thinking – Thinking Positively and also visualizing ourselves in situation that we dream of makes us feel happy – I am not talking about day dreaming here – It is about our honest dreams which we can really achieve through hard work and sincerity.This positive thinking really helps in succeeding in our goals..
  3. Sleeping well – A good night sleep really makes us feel fresh in the morning and to face day to day challenges in life…Many of us usually think about all our worries while we try to sleep – We have to understand that worrying and not sleeping well is not going to change anything in life.
  4. Helping others – I feel that helping others can make us happy – Even a small help that we do, can make a big difference in others’ life.
  5. Less expectations & less comparisons – I know this is very difficult to practice in life, but if we follow, then we can stay happy always – Expectations & comparisons really affects our relationships a lot – We become sad if persons’ very close to us do not fulfill our expectations and then we start comparing our lives with that of others-All these lead only to road of unhappiness..So, expect less, compare less and be always happy!!!!

This & That…

  • After a long time, watched back to back 2 movies- Jungle Book & Ko-2.Jungle book movie was so enjoyable (brought back old memories ) and Ko-2 was OK.
  • Finally election is over and results are also published – Results are the same as I expected – One Party had won with absolute majority – Predictions of many Exit Polls and Opinion polls had turned out to be wrong – People had once again proven that it is very difficult to predict what they think..
  • In this election, Opposition Parties had used marketing strategies to the fullest…Everywhere there were Advertisements against the ruling party and I feel that it was overdosage..Inspite of all these, People had voted for the ruling party..
  • There was heavy rain in the city and cool climate was also enjoyable..Along with rain, power cut was also there, but it was manageable…
  • Had a good time with my family …Watched some old movies, went to many places and enjoyed a lot…

Is there any Privacy???

This post is going to be a  serious rant…Please read at your own risk…

Nowadays I am  thinking  about the below:

  • Is there any thing called PRIVACY in this society??
  • Why people are more concerned about others’ lives than theirs??
  • What they gain from hurting others??
  • Who are they to question/interrogate other persons’ personal life??

I feel intruding in others’ lives starts very early in this society..

When a baby is born, others start giving advice to parents (especially mother) on how to take care of the baby..I think it is  somewhat Ok if it comes from close family and not from all  the strangers…

Then this society starts bombarding  questions to that Kid regarding his/her education and marks secured & compares them with others…My question is “Why can’t they mind their own business?? ” They really don’t understand how bad that kid will feel due to comparison..

Ok, then if he/she completes education and is searching for Job, then again they start asking “Oh!!!!! haven’t you got any job yet?? So bad!!! You are troubling your parents a lot”

Now next stage is if he/she gets job finally & doesn’t want to marry soon, this society will start offering free advice regarding importance of marriage..

If he/she is in love with somebody and wants to marry the same person, even if their parents approve, the so called society will not let them live in peace…Many parents fear of what others’ will say to this love marriage and so are reluctant to accept their son/daughter’s wish…

Finally  he/she is married after facing many hurdles & are enjoying their life…After some days, again this society starts asking them ” When are you going to have kids???”

I seriously think is there any privacy here?? Having Kids is very personal thing and when to have them is to be decided  only by husband/wife and not by others…

If after some years, they didn’t have baby, then that wife faces numerous questions and every tom, dick & harry advice her to consult this or that doctor…They don’t even consider how bad she might feel..Whenever they see/talk with her, this is the first question that she is asked …Many blame/sympathize with her for not having baby…

I  would like to question this society “Is having kids the sole purpose of marriage??? “

I feel  kids are important, but having kids alone doesn’t make any marriage successful… I think a successful marriage is  more about true love, trust, companionship and so on…

I sincerely dream of a society where people mind their own business and let others’ live their life peacefully without intrusion…I know very well that this dream will not come true & if it comes true, it will be the eighth wonder of this world!!!!!!

One..Two..Three…

“She”Series – 4

Who is She????

  • From her schooling days, she used to interact with all of her classmates, but she wished to have only less number of friends…She was very happy with her small circle of friends and always liked to spend time with them..
  • She thinks that  she is a bit selfish in nature..Though she tries hard  that her selfishness doesn’t affect others, she can’t totally get rid of it!!!
  • She is very sensitive in nature…If she gets angry, she shouts at people close to her.. After those initial emotional moments, she will become calm..But irony is that she will not shout at everybody – Will try to control her emotions with persons not close to her & shows her anger only to her  close & best buddies!!!!
  • She is  honest and fair when she deals with others…But her problem is that she always expects others also to be like that!!!
  • She adapts to situations well and easily adjusts with others…She does not express herself to others regarding what she wants & is OK even if  she didn’t get what she wished & she would adjust well…She feels that the persons whom she is really close to, should know about her likes & dislikes even without her expressing it!!!! Many of her close family members & close friends have advised her that she should express herself, but she really couldn’t change!!!
  • She is very possessive in nature and she hates herself for that!!!
  • She takes time to believe others, but  after believing them fully, if they betray her, She neither forgives nor forgets them….
  • She likes gifting to persons whom she is very close to and is very good at surprising them..
  • She always likes to spend for others without any budget…But if she wants to buy something for herself, She will think thousand times before buying that…She is a selective miser!!!
  • She is very bad in expressing her love to her family or her close friends…She knows she loves them to the core, but never expresses that through her words…
  • She believes in poetic justice and many incidents in her life have proved that it exists..
  • She accepts her mistakes if she does anything wrong and doesn’t mind apologizing for it!!! She hates to cover up her mistakes and boldly faces the consequences!!!!
