An Indirect Prose on Spiritual Leaders nowadays

From last many days, I was having problems in seeing things clearly. I went to an optometrist he gave me a pair of glasses.

I try those on. Still, the problem remains. I told my problem to the guy who gave me those. “I still can’t see a thing” I said.

“Bro, you have to think positive. You have to believe in the glasses. Those glasses worked for me perfectly well. You know why they worked on me because I believed. I knew they would work. The guy who gave it to me is a true genius. He can’t do anything wrong to me. I believe in him also.” He replied

“Well, I am positively sure that I can’t see a thing. I am trying too. I still am not able to see anything.” I stated, feeling confused

“I have done so much for you, still you are not thanking me. You are not ready to see clearly. You have to introspect first to see things clearly.” He said in a loud voice.

“You think I am not trying. Maybe it is not meant for me.” I replied feeling dumb

“This is where you are wrong, I gave those to millions of people all are satisfied because they didn’t question. I know what’s the problem. You are just being pessimistic and bleak. Stop doing that you will start seeing with clarity.” He chides.

I stopped talking and went out. I was still wondering; how could I have improved myself in seeing clearly with those bad glasses. If it is in my power to see clearly, then I would not have needed the glasses. I would have introspected earlier and seen things the way I wanted to. What is the point going to an optometrist??

 

P.S. I wrote this prose after discussing with an ardent follower of India’s one of the many spiritual leaders. The thing I tried to explain in this prose is what those people (Spiritual Leaders) are doing, they are trying to give the same medicine to all of their followers. Even a real medical doctor can’t do that… He knows the same medicine can react to someone and can work wonders for others. After thinking this I stopped feling dumb and start living life in present but not in life after that.

I don’t want to believe in one Idea.

I don’t want to believe in one Idea.

The idea which is supposed to be the only truth
The idea which seems to revolve the earth

The idea which people use to explain all the stuff
The idea which is bizarre enough to be called a bluff

The idea which inhibits the fear in you
The idea which don’t let you to be you

The idea which promise you some sort of salvation
The idea which doesn’t solve but complicate the situation

The idea which threatens you to do different things
The idea which cut away before you can spread your wings

The idea in which you can be killed on disagreeing
The idea which makes you believe in some kind of supernatural being.

I will never believe in that Idea.

“The reason I don’t want to believe is not because I have known the truth every other person is talking about… but because I don’t want that truth. I don’t even know that there is some kind of truth.”

Because truth can be relative.
Your truth can be someone else’s lie.

“If there is any truth, I don’t want it to be heard from you. I want to struggle for my own truth. Because struggle is the attribute of the strong.”

Weak people just die.
They either kill themselves..
or believe in somebody else or something else
and are waiting to die.

“By believing in someone else you are physically or mentally dead. I can never want to be one of those people.”

I want to live…
Not only for myself but for others around me.
Not only to earn but to return.
Not only to succeed but also to fail trying.
Not only to rise above the rest but also to fall down and get back up.

“Because you know what… The earth is not that far.”
“If you ever fell down, just get back up, remove the dust and start working again and repeat the process till you get what you want.”

Take the Leap for Future.

In life, time and again you will find yourself in the situation in which you will feel stuck between the devil and the deep sea. This article will help you at that particular moment. At that time everything seems far and you can’t think of anything to get yourself out of the situation. At that time, what you need to do is just take a few seconds of calmness, think clearly and then take the leap of faith with the faith in your dream. Because you are what your dream is, you are what you want to be. Think about that for a moment.

To achieve that something you have always cherished in your lived life to do in your life to come, you only have one option ahead of you. What you have to do is create your space, turn your ship in the direction you want it to go. Fight those tides, those adverse conditions and most importantly your emotions. Most of the people during the time of making their own way, go with the flow. But they didn’t realize that the flow is not going where you want to go. The flow will move you towards a more difficult direction and from that direction, your destination will seem farther than it ever was.

Never ever listen to others, sometimes not even your elders or the most experienced ones, if you don’t feel like it. Take the wisdom from them, utilize their knowledge and listen to their experience, but you don’t have to follow their experience. Because they and you are different and they don’t realize that now, they will once you show them. To succeed, you have to have your experiences. You have to have your own share of failures and disappointments. You have to learn things yourself. Figure out yourself what can you do more and what more is needed to reach the ultimate goal you are trying to achieve. That’s the best way and that’s the only way.

Make your own destiny. Only you can. Nobody else is going to move your ship, but you. You have to understand what works for you and what doesn’t. What I am trying to say is that we all have something special in us, we just have to find it, we just have to realize it.

And how will we find it?? By believing in ourselves and when you do, just follow your gut wherever it takes you. And trust me on this, it will not lead you to nowhere, it also needs food so it will never let you sleep hungry.

“We were born liberated, don’t put yourself in shackles now.”

Just make the jump, take the leap and do something for yourself different from others. Mark my words, you will be successful one day and happiness will always be there during the process and after. You just have to do what you desire the most. And you can do just by moving in the different direction and just by realizing your true inner passion.

It’s not going to be easy.

Most people start doing things with this notion in their mind that it is going to be easy. They will achieve what they want with the minimal efforts. Well, if you think like those people that you can fly through turbulence or sail through harsh waters without trying hard. Then my friend just ‘Forget about it.’ Don’t even think that it will come to you easily. What you have to do is feel the struggle, toil hard, get injured in the process, endure everything which is between you and your goal. This period of pain will be replaced by happiness one day. This period of turmoil will be replaced by success one day.

To realize your dream which you have dreamt sleeping last night, last month or last year; you have to change your mindset today, tomorrow and every day. Just make yourself believe that if it was easy, everyone will do it, everyone will reach the top. But you have to think that the top position is not reserved for everyone, it is for the people who grind, who make themselves believe that they have the courage enough to go for it and make it happen.

Without enduring the pain, you will not gain. But I can guarantee you that if you outlast every hurdle, every hardship and every blockage that comes your way; you will, one day, see the world from the top. And trust me on this, it is beautiful out there. It’s just one extra push, one extra problem, one extra step to go. Just keep pressing, just keep pushing yourself, just keep going forward. One day at a time, one step at a time. It was never going to be easy, it was supposed to be challenging. Embrace the pain. Don’t shy away from it. Then guess what… One day it will be your day. You will reach the point where you always wanted to reach.

Stop Caring ‘What They Think’

I usually don’t care about what people think of me (how I look, how I walk and how I talk) I don’t do things for them. I do things for me. I only care how much the decision I am going to make will affect me. If it is going to improve my level and help me grow in any way. Then and only then I will be taking that decision or making that choice.

I don’t know why people put others feelings before themselves. I just can’t do that. I have my own priority list. For me, my nation always comes first after that my family and then my close friends who I admire as my family. No one else matters to me.
When you don’t care about others, your productivity and your happiness level will automatically increase.

The three reasons to stop caring are:

  1. First, You will always be doing the right thing because you will only be doing it for you.
  2. Second, when you do things for yourself, you do it with your heart. And when you do it with your heart, the quality will be foremost always. Also, in the end, you will feel contended and happy.
  3. Third, even if the outcome or the quality is not as you expected it, you will not even care about it. Because you didn’t do it to prove something to anyone. You did that only for your reasons.

So, try this once even for one small thing in your life, don’t care about others (their feelings or their opinion). Do that thing for yourself. Change Yourself You will feel the difference.

The leaders we need.

Though I am pessimistic and bleak most of the time, but I still feel optimistic about my country’s future. I still think that there is hope. As the saying goes, “Where there is a will, there is a way” But whose WILL?? Ours? Or our Leader’s??
The answer to that question will be: first we have feel and fulfil our responsibility then and only then we can question others. We have no right to blame others without doing our part. And after doing what you are supposed to do, you gain for yourself the right to ask questions. And it’s not only your right, it’s your responsibility. You should demand what is rightfully yours.
But demand from whom? These leaders who are so selfish that they only think about themselves. Well, you elected them and you have this right to demand the right thing till the time it is accepted. We can demand them to take us where we want to go. But the problem, as it seems to me, begin when they don’t. When they lead us to the place where they want us to go. Where things do not improve and we feel cheated to vote them. Sill they want us to keep coming back and board the same train of which they are only drivers. When they start feeling that they can easily deceive people and those same people will always come back to them again and again. This is when the leaders become something else, they become politicians.

From now on, people should start differentiating leaders from politicians and stop giving power to politicians and start empowering leaders.

I have noticed a thing that might help you

I have noticed a thing about myself that I am not that kind of person who believes in one idea. I keep on changing my views, my thoughts and my beliefs. And I now think that it’s a really good trait to have because if you are not changing then you are not growing, you are only standing still. It’s just a simple, natural phenomenon that still water started to stink after some time. Having only one thought for life, one idea for life is like still water, microorganisms will grow in it and it will become unsuitable to use.

So, try new things every day. Grow some experience about things, people and places. Meet new people. Travel around the world while you still can. If you ever feel stuck anywhere, move on, you are not a tree.

‘What I think’ about ‘What People Think’

People don’t know what you are feeling, how you are feeling or why you are feeling something. But all of them will have different-different analogies of the situation they think you are in. They think that they know you very well, actually more than you know yourself. Still, they feel that you are faking it.

Let them think that. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. You know you are trying. You know that you are trying your ass off to get yourself out of the situation that you have put yourself in.
You only need to change your behavior. You may not know more things than the other guys, but you have known yourself more than everyone else. And you know that you are learning. You will always be learning, this will every day make you closer to your goal till the day you achieve it.

You desperately want to be there from where you can inspire people, from where you can touch lives, from where you can make your surroundings and your country a better place to live in. You might not have all the resources even as many as others might have, but you have your will power and you are willing to work hard for your goal. This and only this will help. This and only this will make you a better human being. You just have to know that you can.

Writing The Talk..II..

Howdy Readers,
I am back on the fourteenth day of continuous blogging. One more week left and after that, I will come occasionally.

Today I will be writing another discussion with my believer friend.
Without wasting much of your time I should start writing:

He was telling me that to experience God, I first have to believe in him. He said you can’t see GOD without believing in him.

My Reply:
First of all, why are you saying that it’s a HE? Why not SHE or IT?

Now about what you said, I will answer that with an example:
There are a lot of things which we can’t see, but there are other senses also…
Like we cannot see air, but we can feel it. Air contains Oxygen we cannot see it either, but we can test it and we can even find out how much percentage of which gas is there in the air.

To which he said, “We knew oxygen is there… That’s why we tested it.”

Well, Well, Well My friend…

Let’s look at another example: We go to another planet, we don’t know anything about the composition of its atmosphere. We take the sample of it and then tested it. After that, we know most of the things about its composition. I am not saying everything because I cannot say that. Why would I say that? It’s next to impossible to cover every aspect and everything.

But, coming to the topic…
You are saying I have to have faith or believe first that it/she/he exists…
1. I can never do that…
2. If you want me to do that first bring the slightest proof that he exists.

Just like what you are saying, I can also say that dinosaurs are still roaming on this earth or that superman is real, but if you can’t believe in them you can’t see them or even feel them around you.

I was reading a research paper the other day, in that it was written that your mind can work in any way you want it to. If you first believe, then want to see you will see it, but it would be hallucinating. And hallucinations are not real.

I will also see superman one day if I started to believe that it exists. That’s how the mind works. Just like Rancho said in 3 idiots, “Your mind can be easily fooled, just say to yourself that ‘All is Well’, it will believe that everything is indeed well.”

So, think for yourself what you want to believe. Don’t fool your mind to believe in something which doesn’t exist and even if it exist it doesn’t care enough about you.

P.S. I don’t want you to believe in me. I just want people to think for themselves. Every single person is strong enough to solve his/her problems. So, rather than believing in someone else, something else; first believe in yourself. Because you and only you can bring yourself out of that situation.

I have been thinking lately…

I have been thinking lately…
The journey I have had.
The times which were happy,
And those when I was sad.

The list is in the billions…
Of the roles, I have played.
With the choices, I was given…
And decisions I have made.

Some were out of fear,
Which I want you to hear.
So that you will never repeat,
And save yourself one defeat.

Some were out of pride,
Their outcomes were satisfied.
But I was still vilified…
Because that’s how people decide.

Some because I was told to…
Actually, those were only a few,
Because deep down I always knew,
That those will never let me grew.

Some out of shame,
Because of the confidence I couldn’t attain.
For those only I am to blame.

Some of them stayed with me,
Either briefly or permanently.
But not a single one I regret…
I think that should be my epithet.

If I were ever given a chance…
I will repeat all those things again,
Because it’s not about the ending,
But the struggle and the pain.
It’s not about the happiness,
It’s about having contentedness.

All of this was about ‘being who you are’…
Without worrying about the scar, you got in the war.

Don’t ever listen to others…

They will never let you believe,
The things you badly want to achieve.
Never ever quench the fire inside of you…
Because that will always make you stand out of the queue.

I should Change Myself.

Howdy Readers,

This post is for me. The things I am going to change in me. From the past 12 days, I have been meditating daily for at least 20-30 minutes and that has done wonders for me. Before I started this blog, I was a different person. Now I can feel that I have changed a bit. But to maximize the change and improve my behavior and thought process, I have decided to do some more things.

I will not let anyone decide anything for me.

I will not share my views with anyone.

I will not share my feelings.

I was strong before, I can become strong now, I will be stronger from now on…

I don’t care what people think of me, even those whom I call friends.

I want to be left alone. I don’t want many people in my life but I have to be with some because I can never be rude, even if it costs me my peace of mind. I should think of a way in which I can stay away without being disturbed.

I will only focus on one thing in my life. And will try my very best to achieve that thing.

Fuck everyone who is coming in the way.

I will regularly say a few things to myself – “I am strong. I have to do this. I can do this. And I will never let anyone disturb my inner peace.”

I can do things myself. I just have to realize my potential. The other person I am relying on has only known me for few years, months, days or minutes. I have known myself since birth. I can change and I will change myself.

Why should one be Kind to Others??

Well, it is a rhetorical question to ask. But still, I am trying to answer it to the best of my ability. Before moving towards the ‘why-part’ of this article, I should first write about the ‘what and how part’.

An act of kindness is a gesture of goodwill towards someone irrespective of your and their financial state, mental state and physical state. Random act of kindness can be performed anywhere and at any time.

It can be as simple as waving to someone you see regularly, talking to them or even smiling at them once in a while. It is the way in which you connect to people even for a second or two. Although you are not supposed to spend your money to be kind but you can go out of your way and spend some of your money to make someone else’s day.

Even though every other religion encouraged kindness as the investment of some sort from salvation and every culture in one way or other recognized it as one of the most important traits of human personality. But still in some points of our life, feels easier to be unkind. Life is not easy, it has its own ups and downs and when we are not in our great state when we feel the world is working against us, that time we often tend to be unkind.

It is true, we all are vulnerable in one way or another. As Plato once said, “Be kind, because everyone you meet is fighting their own battle.” Don’t be rude to others because you had a long day. Never used that as an excuse to behave badly.

I don’t feel that people should look for reasons to be kind. But I have formulated what I feel should be the reasons for the people to opt kindness. They are:

  • Be Kind, because an act of caring starts a ripple that comes back to you.
  • Be Kind, because it is the rational thing to do. It makes sense to be kind.
  • Be Kind, because it takes courage to be kind. It is challenging to hold your tongue and speak positively to others.
  • Be Kind, because it is difficult to maintain the level you have reached and with the unkind behavior you are going to other person’s level. Try to bring them to your level instead.
  • Be Kind, because being unkind doesn’t solve anything. That sure as hell complicates the things more.
  • Be Kind, because it feels good to be kind, it is the right thing to do and it reflects who you actually are.

Kindness is something we can all engage in anytime and anywhere. Kindness is a choice. Choose it. An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind. But kindness for rudeness will spread honor and happiness. Kindness not only makes you feel good but also it makes others feel good too. And in making others feel good, you inspire them to want to do something kind for someone else.

Kindness is contagious, choose it and try it once in a while.

A great experience filled with kindness.

Howdy Readers,

Today I want to write something on kindness. It’s not actually a topic it’s just my views on what I saw today…

First of all, let me begin with what I saw today. I was walking down the road just to change my mood and relax my nerves a few minutes ago. I was completely mesmerised with what I saw. Someone came from the opposite side and gave the rickshaw puller, who was sleeping on his rickshaw, some food to eat. I was not shocked to see that because in India, some people don’t like to waste the food and when some food is left they gave it to the needy. I feel it’s a good thing to do for those people who want to help others, but couldn’t because their financial conditions doesn’t allow them to do it. In order make the ends meet, they can’t do what they really want to do.

Anyways, this story is not about the person who gave the food to the rickshaw puller this is about the rickshaw puller himself. He received the food and thanked the person who gave it to him, when that person is gone, he looked around and saw another rickshaw puller sleeping just like him. He, with the food in his one hand, approached the sleeping fellow, wake him up and asked him if he was hungry. The other man replied in the affirmative. He then offered him half of the food given to him and came back and started eating his share in silence.

When he was done, as he didn’t have much left for himself, I approached him and asked him, “Weren’t you hungry, pal?”
“I was… I haven’t had anything from the morning” he replied.
I then asked him again, “Is he your friend? You guys always share food with each other.”
To which he replied, “He just came in this town a few days back and never knew anyone here.”
“I know why are you asking all these questions from me? You want to know why I gave him the food,” he added.
Well, I was curious to know why??
He then said, “I don’t know that he too was hungry, I asked him and he said yes so I shared the food with him. He was here before me. It’s his spot to pick up the travelers in this locality. I am new here. If I hadn’t been here today that guy would have given the food to him. I accepted the help because I was hungry and I just thought he would be hungry too.”

I was astounded with the answer. I had no reply. I was in tears, but I tried not to show him, I shook hands with the man with some sort of pride in his actions and moved on thinking about the lesson I just learned from him. He taught me a lesson today. I had everything I can dream of yet I don’t share it with my own family, but that rickshaw puller who had so little to offer and he didn’t think once before sharing it with others.

I will write more about kindness tomorrow….

India Since Independence

Howdy Readers,

Today is Day-8, with this I will realise my goal in 13 more days. Trust me, its really a great deal for me to write something daily.

On the 8th day of my goal I wrote about India Since Independence. What have we achieved. What more is needed and most importantly What are the blemishes we have faced in the past 7 decades.
Well, one could write a 700 page book about that (ask Bipan Chandra 🙂 ) but I tried to put my feelings in less than 400 words.

Do read and tell what you think…..

On 15 August 1947, Pt. Nehru made a tryst with destiny and with that India encountered its rendezvous with democracy. And since its inception, India has never looked back. It is on the right path and continues making the right decisions despite the hard conditions it has faced in the past.

Our forefathers wanted it to be a welfare state and they made sure that India doesn’t face the hardships it has faced for over 200 years. It was made sure by the constitution tabulated by Babasaheb and other members in the Constituent Assembly.

India has been advancing in almost every field, from literature to science. All of that is favoured by the reforms (be it land, economic or others) and policies which are made for the people by the people-elected by the people. In the economic field, we have achieved unprecedented success and most of our 5-year plans have been successfully implemented with shining results. We have also achieved success in agriculture and education sector and most significant achievement has been done in defence and space related programmes with our own indigenous missiles and space vehicles.

With the days of success, India has seen some dark days as well. These include emergency in 1975, the emergence of Naxalite groups and terror attacks which have damaged our country from within. Other than that poverty and unemployment are the menaces which are doing the most harm to the nation.

Despite these problems, India is the fastest growing economy. In the 70th year of independence, it is developing at a faster pace than it ever was. The need of the hour is to emphasise on education and youth. Because these are the one which can help India regain its old glory back. The more reforms come in the field of education, the faster India will progress not in one or two sectors but all round dream of development will be realised.

To conclude, I must write that it the result of all the pains and hardships of our forefathers who fought for our freedom, all the leaders who lead us here with the reforms, the decision-making ability of our bureaucrats and the power given to judiciary which is leading India towards betterment and development at a rate faster than any other once-colonialized country in the world.

Is the Death Penalty Effective??

Howdy Readers,

Today, I want to write about the death penalty. Is it effective? Will it solve the problem of crime?
Let’s find out what I think 🙂

The very first thing we need to know is – What A death penalty (Capital Punishment) actually means?? It means punishing a person for the crime he had done in his past by killing him through any suitable way. And now I am quoting a brief history of death penalty via DPIC: “The first established death penalty laws date as far back as the 18th Century B.C. in the Code of King Hammurabi of Babylon, which justified and used the death penalty for 25 different types of crimes. The death penalty was also in the 17th Century B.C.’s Draconian Code of Athens, which made death the only punishment for all crimes, as well as in the 5th Century B.C.’s Roman law of the Twelve Tablets. Death sentences were carried out by means such as crucifixion, drowning, beating to death, burning alive, and impalement.”

 

Now some questions which arises in my mind and what I think about them —

Is death Penalty morally right? Is It Necessary to fight fire with fire?No killing a man is not morally right, although now it is morally accepted by the society that killing a man who kills a man is right. And fighting a fire only increases the fire; we need water to fight a fire.

Is death penalty actually reduces crime rates?

I myself along with hundreds of surveys say that nations without the death penalty have had consistently lower murder rates than those where they punish a person by hanging him, shooting him and beating him to death.

Even if the death penalty did reduce crime rates, Will it then be acceptable?

I don’t think so, I am a peace loving man and I love every human equally, but that does not mean I want that person to roam free who had done that crime, he should be punished for the crime he had done, but not by capital punishment.

Is it fair in terms of crime done by rich and poor? The death penalty targets the economically disadvantaged those who cannot afford to pay their legal bills. There is a saying in the US “Capital Punishment is for those who have no capital and gets the punishment.” And many stats show that is the truth.

How much does it cost? Is it necessary to spend taxpayers money on criminals??

The amount of work that is involved in taking the case all the way to the supreme court to try to get a stay of execution (These are called appeals) It can sometimes take years to exhaust all appeals. Most of the prisoners on death row do not have the funds to fight in court, and so we the taxpayers foot the bill. Lawyers charge for every stamp, every piece of paper, and every minute they talk about the case no matter to whom that might be. You add all this up, plus the cost of housing, feeding and keeping a prisoner for years, plus the cost of the actual death and funeral and it can add up quickly. It not only costs a bundle of money for the death penalty, it costs a bundle of money to keep a prisoner in jail for a life term. Either way, we the taxpayers foot the bill.

Here are many reasons to support that death penalties are ineffective–

  • There are many other alternative punishments for those who had done the crime one of them is imprisonment for life without parole, in which the prisoner should work for his living in the prison.
  • What if, Death Penalty is given to the innocent? Yes, there are many cases in which judges gave the death penalty to those who did not commit the crime. What do we say to his widow and children? Do we erect an apologetic tombstone over his grave?
  • In many cases death penalty gave criminals publicity which they don’t even deserve, and this may cause attention seeker kids to do that crime to get famous which causes harm to themselves and their family only.
  • There is something indecent in the rituals that surround executions and the excitement they provide to the public. We should worry about those who gather outside the prisons to cheer the executioners on; sometimes the crowd started chanting “KILL HIM, KILL HIM.”
  • If we abolish the death penalty in our country, we can be more effective in defending political and religious prisoners who face it abroad.
  • Death penalty costs even higher than to keep the criminal in the prison for life.
  • Death penalty may prolong sufferings of the victim’s family and close one one.
  • Capital Punishment does not reduce crime rates. So why should it be necessary?
  • The death penalty fails to recognize that guilty people have the potential to change, denying them the opportunity to ever re-join society.
  • The death penalty punishes the poor.

Many people support the death penalty as reparation for the wrong done to a victim’s family; they undergo severe trauma and loss which no one should minimize. Executions do not help these people heal nor do they end their pain; the extended process prior to executions prolongs the agony of the family. Families of murder victims would benefit far more if the funds now being used for the costly process of executions were diverted to counselling and other assistance. The harm was now already been done, but encouraging our motives of revenge and avenge which only ends in another killing, extends the chain of violence.

The death penalty is never ever acceptable. It only violates the two of the basic human rights which are right to live and no one should be subject to torture, by the giving death penalty we took away one’s right to life and also subject him to torture sometimes even psychologically by letting him wait for many years to face his death penalty and that wait seems terrifying even if he has done the crime but he is human and should be treated like one. In the end, I just want to say that death penalty should be abolished, not even from our country but from this world. If it is necessary sometimes then it should be in the rarest of the rare cases.

Writing the talk..1..

Howdy Readers,

Today is Day-6 and now I have been left with 15 more days of the daily posting schedule. 🙂

I just want to speak from my heart today on the discussion I just had with my brother.

Here it is…

Before I began I want to tell all of you that I am not a believer. But I am not telling you not to believe, I used to urge people to think, now I don’t do that either. Because people think that I am telling them not to believe.

So what happened today was that I overheard a conversation between my brother and his friend. He was telling him to fear something as his afterlife will be terrible. I was like WTF!!! I thought for a second that every religion I can think of has this same concept, in which they tell people to do good out of the fear of the afterlife. Christians tell people to do good to prevent themselves from going to hell. Hindus tell people to do good so that you are awarded either human form in the next life or getting from this carnal form. And writing about other religions will make this article longer than I could even write at a time.

Talking to him, I said that I can neither deny these claims nor support them, I mean how can I? I am alive right now and I have never seen anyone coming back from dead and sharing his/her heavenly experiences. 😉 Even if someone claims to do so, I cannot support their claim as it can never be verified with proof as my science do things generally.

I only want to write two more things before ending this prose, they are:
1. None of us can have the proof to say there is some supernatural power around us, None of us is getting out of here alive, so please stop living in your afterlife, stop treating yourself as an afterthought, stop thinking about your after future, live in the present.
Jump in the river and walk in the rain.
Be true first to yourself and then to everyone else. Be kind. Be weird.
There is no time for anything else but to work for others.

2. I read this somewhere:
i have
what I have
and I am happy.

i’ve lost
what i have lost
and i am
still happy.

So guys, be happy always.

A Step Forward Towards Being The Change!

Howdy Readers,

Day before yesterday I wrote about How I did something wrong of which I will be sorry for the rest of my life. Today I am writing about the incident which I am proud of.

Let’s began with the story:

After 2-3 drinks my friends were showing my bff’s relatives that they were happy in their happiness by dancing on the occasion of my best friend’s brother’s marriage(I don’t care if that’s sounds weird) After being exhausted all of us went to sleep, where we had a great laughter before sleeping. We all decided to leave the next morning and when we reached Bahadurgarh the nearest bus stand from the wedding house, we were heading towards Sonipat via Kharkhoda so we board a bus to Kharkhoda which started moving in a few minutes.
Bus conductor came towards us and asked for tickets, we gave him money and then to my surprise he moved towards other passengers without giving us the tickets. We waited for a while, but when we thought he was not going to give us tickets, then a friend sitting next to me called him and asked for tickets. He answered with a smile, ‘‘what is the need of tickets, If I am there’’. Then he sat with us and started influencing us with his shitty talk and told us about his salary (Rs. 8,000) which was very fucking low in this too expensive country like India. Listening him talk I suggested that he should do some part time work to support his extra expenses (In my Opinion, some of them were useless) And He replied, ‘‘Brother I have started many businesses, but not a single one of them profits, after that I bribed an officer Rs. 500,000 and got this job as a conductor in Haryana Roadways which is not even permanent. I have spent tons of money of my family on me to earn money but, I always saw losses and losses’’. He stopped for a while and then started again, ‘‘When I was about your age, I also thought of eradicating corruption from this country, but when it comes to hot food all that thoughts become cold’’.

Now bus stops and 2-3 more passengers came and he went towards them to ask them for their tickets and sat near them. And a loud discussion started between me and my friend about the complete scenario and the way that man was doing corruption which I felt was wrong, because I thought of minimizing the corruption in our country and I was very much obsessed with Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of ‘being the change’ but by letting him do corruption in front of my eyes I was supporting him do so which was not right. After seeing us discussing on that topic, I don’t know what changed him, but he came towards me and handed me tickets and with some anger in his eyes and said, ‘‘Take It!’’ and went towards the driver’s seat.

I was happy at that point of time that I didn’t become part of this corruption web at least for once. When we were leaving the bus, the conductor was standing on the door and He gave me a bad look and said, ‘‘Are you happy now?’’ I smiled and replied, ‘‘Very Much’’ and left the bus with a sort of proud feeling on all of us.

I considered that incident as my very first and smallest victory against corruption and people doing it.

We Are Indians! We don’t change.

Howdy Readers,

Today I am writing about how we Indians don’t want to change and how we don’t change our ways to make our very own motherland a better place to live.
Here is today’s post:

We are Indians and we will continue to spit on the no spitting sign, we will continue to smoke in a no smoking area, we will continue to listen to loud music even after 11:00 PM, we will never put waste in dustbins, we need to ‘Chain’ the glass with drinking water tanks, we need to put ‘Remove Footwear’ sign in front of temples, we need to write ‘Be In A Line’ on the walls near ticket counter, we litter near ‘No Littering’ sign and in short, ‘We will never change’

But we will always criticize the person in power because they are the one who is doing nothing other than scams and corruption.

We like things this way because we don’t want to do something.
We don’t want to go near the dustbin to throw waste because either we don’t care to find or that dustbin someplace far.
We can not keep ourselves quite in hospitals.
We can’t control for 5 more minutes to find the toilet.
We can’t stop spitting everywhere after eating paan.
We can’t find a place where we don’t irritate other persons from the smoke of the cigarette.

We don’t want to change.
I mean, if we don’t change then what difference it will make that which clown is in power.
If we, the people of this nation, don’t change for this country then why do we expect that PM, CM will change this country for us.
We need to change from within.

But How??? How Can We Change?
For this, we can start from not throwing waste on roads because this is the easiest thing which we can do.
After that start writing up for something on Facebook, Twitter and Blog
Then if you think time is right and you can change something you don’t like, come forward and speak up in public.

I want us to make me change the title of this ‘note’ from ‘we don’t change’ to ‘we can change’, then to ‘we will change’ and finally to ‘we are change’.

From My Diary….

Howdy Readers,

This is an old story which I want to share with you guys.

When you have done something wrong, just admit it and be sorry.
I am writing this because I feel sorry for something I did recently and I want to admit it.

So, what I did was the thing I want to fight in my near future, which is Corruption.

This was the evening of 22nd March, 2015; I with my 4 friends was going to visit Bhagat Singh’s Mausoleum to pay homage to the martyr on his martyrdom day (23rd March). We were going to board Punjab Mail and bought tickets for general Compartment.

The train arrived at 9:15 P.M. and we ran for the general bogie and as we expected, it was over-crowded even to put a needle in that. We didn’t even try to board that compartment and went forward to get on the bogies reserved for Indian Army soldiers. None of us expected that Indian Army can say no to civilians like this.
After getting rejected by them our bad luck started when our eyes happened to see the Ticket Checker of Punjab Mail. His name was Chamkor Singh, actually he was telling his name to fellow travellers with pride, when they were bargaining for seats in sleeper class in the name of Gurdwara Sahib (Holy Sikh Temple). But when we begged him for seats, he suddenly told us to go and sit in 3-tier (non-AC) and all of us happily and without even thinking what he was saying, moved our asses on that train.

I thought what a strange night is this?
Few minutes back we were refused by Indian Army and now this TC was trying to help us.

After sometime when we made ourselves comfortable in that coach and started playing cards, he came to check our tickets in a hurry. We show him our tickets and he demanded Rs. 200 each, thinking about our budget, we asked him to lower the price and to our surprise he did reduced Rs. 200 and took Rs. 800 for all 5 of us, marked our tickets checked, gave us 4 seats and left.
When he was marking the tickets, I thought he was going to write seat number and give us receipt of the money he took from us. But there is no receipt for a bribe. All that happened in a hurry and by the time he provided us with seats, we reached Rohtak. I went out to grab something to eat and then I started thinking about what just happened, Was that corruption?
And suddenly my inner soul replied, “Yes, that was”. I came back without buying anything and Chamkor was nowhere to be found in that coach.

That was the time, I started feeling worse about myself because I want to fight corruption at some time in my life and for the first I was directly connected with the crime.

Like every human -In my thoughts- I started to rationalize the whole scenario in a way that I was helpless and I was not wrong and all that shit. But it took me much less time to realize that I was the one who is responsible for that crime.

I admit it and I will be sorry for the rest of my life. Because no one ever died choking, trying to swallow his pride down the throat.

When I met a Soldier.

Howdy Readers,

I have promised myself to be back again at least for the next 20 more days. 😊 So Here I am….

Let’s Start with today’s topic.

Today I will talk about Soldiers. The persons who are ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of their country. I feel they are one of the most selfless Indians you will ever meet.

They don’t care about how they look, they don’t care about the politics going on (sometimes that politics involve them directly), they don’t care about their social lives, themselves and their family. The things they care about is their country, their country’s prestige, and their country’s safety.

Today I met a soldier while talking to him I tried to understand the condition they are living in. How they have to suffer due to the politics going on around them. Today’s post may be titled as “When I met a Soldier” but it’s not about how and when, it’s about the problems they face now and then. And how they overcome those problems with minimal resources without demanding much from the authorities.

Talking to that person I found out that they are certain irregularities and mismanagement in the Army. For example:

  • India can easily buy better weaponry and equipment including lighter bulletproof jackets, but due to corruption in the highest places we are not doing anything and letting those terrorists and enemies kill our soldiers.
  • Even the clothing given to the soldiers are not up to the mark. The jackets are big and noisy and when you have to carry ammo pouches your enemy can hear you from a long distance. The quality of shoes and helmets are even worse. I want to quote him, “The less I say about these things are the better.”
  • The most severe problem is the local support. In areas like Kashmir, the army doesn’t have any local support. People are throwing rocks and abusing every time we are on duty. Sometimes it feels like what is the point of protecting these people. But then we remember Indian map. The army is there not to protect those inconsiderate people, but to save this country’s pride.

Then I questioned him why is he there even with the problems they face.

His answer shook me completely.

He replied, “Sahab, paisa jitna yahan milta hai utna to hum kahin bhi kama lete. Ye desh ki seva karna, wo uniform pehanna; uske baad raat ko jo nind aati hai wo boht sukoon ki hoti hai.”

Even writing this gave me goosebumps again.

I think these politicians only want to be glued to their seats they use soldiers’ names and always promise to do this and that, but when they come in power but in the end, nothing is done and achieved.

And to improve the situation of the soldiers and armed forces the internal and external corruption should be eradicated. Politicians should take armed forces more seriously and voluntary services should be added to the armed forces. This will make this our youth more disciplined and more aware about the actual scenario.

Starting a new life…

Howdy Readers,

I am Proud Indian. I have started this blog with a view to improving myself. Lately, I have observed that I am quite overdependent on my friends, which I was not used to a year back. I can’t take a decision without consulting them. I always overthink which is never a good thing for anybody.

The things I am trying to achieve are:

  • My mental Stability. (It’s not that I am mentally ill or something, it’s just that I want to live a stable life and that too alone)
  • My will power
  • The determination towards the ultimate goal of my life.
  • And to decrease the overdependent attitude.

How will I try to do all this?

  • I am getting off the social networks. (Initial target 21 days)
  • I have turned off all the messaging services like WhatsApp and Messenger etc.
  • I have turned my phone off.
  • I will start meditating again with a target of 30 minutes per day and then gradually increase the time to 1 hour…. In that manner, further.

To achieve the goals, I will get out of my house and try to meet a person daily and learn something new daily. I will also write my experience to get the most out of that. I will be helping others as well, but my foremost priority is to help myself. I believe people should always help themselves to help others. Now, as this my first post I will write daily for next 21 days.

So guys, fasten your seatbelts for the reading experience with me and share this with as many people as you can. I hope you will like what I am doing and trying to achieve.

Jai Hind 🇮🇳
