STOP WASTING TIME

The only thing that everyone has unlimited is time. Every person born on this earth comes with a gift called time and everyone has ample of it. Some manage to do wonders in the same given time and some are, well, just breathing. It’s passing, every day, every minute, and every second, this time is slipping right out of our hands and we don’t even realize it. Time stands for the most ironical example of being the most important and precious gift and yet not valued as much. Continue reading

Motivational Monday – NEVER QUIT

One day I was sitting,

When my result came out.

Crying, I was thinking about quitting.

My abilities; I doubt.

 

I looked down at the floor.

To me, life seemed bored.

But then I saw an ant,

Who was trying to climb a plant.

 

I saw how it slipped again and again,

It tried hard and hard, but all in vain.

It over powered all the pain and tried once again,

Tried and tried till it changed all the losses into gains.

 

Rising up is a trait of strong,

Weak tend to give up.

Your future will always be bleak,

But never stop looking up.

 

Don’t give up because you can’t do something.

Don’t give up just because you couldn’t achieve it now.

You have it in you, just find the right way.

The time will come soon,

When in front of you, the world will bow.

Love all around

I never knew I could love someone so dearly,

Coz once betrayed, feelings affected me barely.

But when you walked into my life,

You made me look on the brighter side,

Where things could be better than just fine,

Where I felt the warmth of the sunshine,

And everything in me was complete for the first time.

 

From the moment I saw you, I knew it was true;

Coz I couldn’t stop smiling nor thinking of you.

Now, I know you feel the same way too,

This feeling is so wonderful, like a dream come true.

 

I love you with everything in me; my soul and heart,

I love you with a calm belief that we’ll never part.

I love you more with each moment that passes by,

Forever I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine.

 

Coz you’re the brightest star in my life,

Coz you’re the luckiest charm in my life.

I just can’t imagine my life without you,

And I know you feel the same way too,

This feeling is so wonderful, like a dream come true.

Many Shades Darker

Unbeatable fairness-see the results in just 7 days.” The jingle of a certain fairness cream, which I am sure you might have guessed, played before the video on Youtube – ‘How to get self-tanned correctly’. Do you see the irony?

Fairness has always been a subject of beauty and social status, especially for Indians. If you are an owner of a dark skin, you might be confused as poor or ugly, no matter how beautiful features you own. Whereas, in the western part of the world, people make efforts to get tanned and fall in love with it. So, the question here is, why can’t Indians love and live with what they have already been blessed? Why do they have to be so obsessed about fairness?

The origin of this obsession lies back in the roots of history, in the era of Shakespeare. If you read his creations, you will find an obvious inclination towards the women with fair skin. He equated ‘Fair’ with ‘Beauty’. And right from that period, fair skin has become a fascination. The advertising of skin whitening products has encouraged it. And the most pathetic version of this obsession came when a certain intimate cream emphasised on whitening those areas of a female body. This is plain annoying, to say the least. Continue reading

An unforgettable interview

More than 24 hours and I can’t stop thinking about it! Probably because it was the most interesting thing that happened to me in the past few weeks, eh, months. Yes, I have a pretty boring life. Now before curiosity kills you, let me tell you that I am talking about the interview I attended yesterday, exactly 24 hours and 53 minutes ago.

Interview? Interesting? What are you talking about girl?

Well, the presence of a clumsy version of me can make the most boring and menacing thing like an interview, a laughing exercise. Everyone had a good laugh in that room. The only difference was that they were laughing at me, on my face and I was laughing at myself, after leaving the room. I was embarrassed at my performance. Continue reading

Motivational Monday Episode 1 – UNPLUG

Those complex mathematical problems that never seem to solve, logical reasoning that doesn’t make logic to you anymore, English that almost seems like French and that never ending pile of current affairs. Have all these started haunting you in your dreams? And you have spent days studying and nights awake revising but still didn’t get any success? Do you feel that you have put in so many efforts but you are still far from placement? Are you unable to find where you are lagging behind?

If all the questions above have a yes as an answer then you need to relax and take a deep breath!!!

The bottleneck competition has led us to study continuously for hours and hours. It is good to put in so many efforts to achieve your goals. But it sometimes takes a toll on your physical as well as mental health. Your mind is a part of your body and it requires rest too. So take a break and give the most important organ of your body some time-out.

Now, by taking a break here does not at all means completely ignoring your studies. It only means to slow down a bit. Don’t exhaust yourself with long study hours. Instead, just analyse yourself. Analyse your study routine and modify it to something better. Because let’s face it, monotonous routines can give you a seriously boring personality and none of us wants that. The motive is to enjoy the whole learning process. Burdening yourself will make you anxious and anxiety leads to irritation and less productivity. Whereas we need to be as much as productive as one can be.

The IBPS schedule will take a high gear in August. So, this is the perfect time to rejuvenate yourself so that you can get back with full determination and mental readiness to face the challenges that await.

Give yourself time to breathe a little. Let your brain and heart rest a little. The world won’t stop for you but you will catch up. Listen to some of your favourite music or dance your heart out. Basically, do anything that makes you feel happy. Free your mind from the stress of competition.

Plan your strategy in a fresh way. Find out your strongest and weakest sections and scheme out your time table accordingly and you will be back with new energy ready to face the tests. Always keep in mind that your ultimate goal is to achieve the success that gives you happiness more than any monetary support. This will help you put your heart into whatever you are doing. And of course, the mind leads you to achievement but the combination of mind and heart lead you to make yourself better at it with each passing day.

To sum this up, we need to understand that rest is as important as activeness for your mind and body so never underestimate the power of rest.
