KEEP MOVING FORWARD

The amount of hard work you did in your previous exam, the crazy amount of time you spent learning all the formulae, and the sacrifices you made for grabbing this opportunity; but the result was still not in your favor. Now what? What should be your next step? Will you stop practicing anymore? Are you almost ready to give up? Have you almost made up your mind? Will you never appear in any exam in future because you think you have had enough? NO. A big fat no! Continue reading

Motivational Monday

Have you ever watched a ‘Hurdle Race’ on TV or in person? The one in which the athlete has to jump over several barriers to complete the race and reach the winning point. Our life is exactly like that with just one exception – Not one but all who jump over all the hurdles are winners unlike in the race. The person who came up with the idea of such race for the first time must have had a clear vision of how and what life actually is – full of hurdles. Every opportunity comes with new hurdles and you need to jump over them in order to reach your goal. Continue reading

SUCCESS DEMANDS SACRIFICES

What makes successful people different from the normal ones? They seem to have it all – job, money, power. They possess everything that we possibly can imagine. They look all happy, can buy anything they desire in this world, and go anywhere they want to spend their holidays. The grass is always greener on the other side but we forget how much effort the neighbors have put in there.

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
