It used to be a fortunate thing to have good children who shall keep your words and dreams; who bring pride to the family name and have a say in the world that you feel happy about. Parents used to work hard to inculcate goodness among their children. Generations used to depend on this divine bliss of having Sensible and Disciplined Children.
Swami Chinmayananda's Twitter account shared this message highlighting the importance of intuition. The followers of spirituality do trust the presence of the supreme self-soul in the body and also adhere to the notion of ‘intuition’.
Be a Rebel who knows that surrendering to the status quo will result in nothing. One who does not add to the future by bringing a change towards good, is living a life for nothing. 'Formulate your own ideas' is the call that Bhagat Singh makes and we feel he is assigning us a tough one.
Future is not a thing to be sold. But the Modern Business Model sells anything and everything. We have missed a very important aspect of our preparation for life and even after knowing the mistake, we are ignorant of that. The truth is that we have got obsessed with the branded product 'FUTURE' and have forgotten that it is the present- here and now- that we need to live.
Bookshelves are crowded with books that offer to help the readers in their time management. The claims aren’t false but the methods are vague. Motivating one to manage time and keep an eye on the watch each moment, isn’t the real thing that one should be doing to manage time.
The greatest investment you can make is in people. The people who work for you and with you are the actual drivers of progress than the profit margins you keep on counting. A Businessman has options to invest in people or papers.
Ernest Hemingway, the mythical persona of American Literature, has been a Muse to me. I invoke him whenever I need to bring something filled with emotional maturity. Hemingway fought all his life with himself. That is what we all do but give up quite early. He lived to prove things to himself and bothered least of the world's madness.
We are dying a death of indifference and absence of consideration. The things around us are not as they used to be but that does not bother us. We feel safe for now and recuse ourselves from the questions about future.
Role of Grammar in learning English has to be discussed as well as debated. Learners fear the grammar of a second language as something which shall stop them from mastering the language.
We should learn to socialise and make a community of friends and well-wishers. Sense of Saftey comes from the community. One who is part of a community can look for a reprise in times of emotional draught. Even during a professional crisis, the community comes to rescue you. Important things are to develop yourself as a community person among a sensible lot of people and maintaining the same for life.
Ask not what your country does for you; ask what you do for your country! Representing the heart of each part of the land which is free and is a sovereign nation, this quotation by Abraham Lincon is a celebration in itself.
Reciprocity is one of my favourite words that I always wish to write or speak about. To return the goodness shall definitely be something natural to a human. But, there have been things that show us the otherwise side of life.
India was not a World Leader in education because there were standardised and policy-bound selection criteria in that age. We had teachers who actually wanted to teach and they were allowed to make an impact in the lives of the disciples. Now, teachers are hired and there are more employed-individuals than teachers.
Literature defines and defies us in many ways. It recommends our lifestyle and various schools of thought and at the same time, it rejects the ways of the world as well. It might mock the world or stand for it. It may cross the line and hail someone as a superhero.
Bhagat Singh, the legend who re-defined Patriotism and Love for the Motherland in his own terms is as much unknown as he is popular among masses. What we know of him, seems to be the tip of the iceberg. I read a few pages of his works and felt that I really need to know him more.
Education has been a commodity and in recent years, we have seen it transformed into a larger business than any other service sector. Billions are going to schools and getting conditioned for the future. One wrong is to prepare a generation for the future which is unknown. Still, we love this obsession of the FUTURE.
Being futuristic is common to human. We anticipate; imagine: expect and dream. In the run to the virtual fulfilment of the mirage, we sometimes miss the punch of rationality. Once, this self-inflicted procrastination is inflicted upon education, we should be aware of the repercussions and the remedies.
Language is for sure a conspiracy between two people. It is also a medium that evolves with the people and their participation. It gets a life when we want to share experiences through language.
