It was a rainy Sunday and besides
having a liking for rains I also appreciate having an off on Sunday . And when
I say off means complete freedom to do what I want to do.
A call from a friend sitting seven
seas apart made me put on my thinking hat and do some thought matches . This friend of mine was just back after doing
a community service for a full day .Community service as in helping or doing things
for the needy that matter. They do this regularly. If you ask the exact reason
why they may not give you an appropriate correct answer .
This made me think two things –
Spoiling a Sunday for this service and what is it in for a person.
I was thinking like a corporate and
hence the line of thought. First thought is invalid since majority of us on
Sunday’s do anything but relaxing .
Second one is the key here.
If you have ever been to a blind
school you would realize the gravity of a situation and the magnitude of
difference that YOU can create. These
people may be different or as I call , special . They may have a problem or as
I see an opportunity.
You may not feel all this at once but over a period of
time you will come to think that next time when you see your kid cribbing over
a chocolate ice-cream or your wife insisting to buy the new designer clutch or
you thinking why in the world you only work so hard or why is God partial to
you and gives you so much of pain think and sit back and reflect these people
and the way they battle or as I say live it out.
All of these are extremely talented
people in some way or the other. They have accepted the way life is and are not
in any battle of sorts. They have also thought through what exactly life would
be like and are at complete peace with its way of working. Its not what we want from life but what we
are willing to give it back.
Everyone comes here and moves on.
It’s the time you spend creating a difference in someone’s life that changes
Whenever I visit a place like this
or come across anyone like them , I just thank God for being kind to me and I
imbibe the positive these people have . At least some rub off effect will
Try to plug into your fast moving
digital life this connect. It has the power to change you as a person ,
professional and as a human being.
PS - Have a great weekend and a happy holi . Stay safe & special. BTW - I have my own personal FaceBook page now and may I request you to ' like' / 'comment' / 'share' , in case you like my writing or me :) .
Often in life , whenever we have free time , we actually end up wasting it . And once , wasted we think we never really get 'free time ' these days.
We all are the same . Genuinely , by working hard on myself , I try whenever I have so called 'free time ' I take look at things / people / surroundings / nature , around us.
And it's in these I find and learn so many small things and stories . You know at certain places of high altitude you can actually see a star -studded sky . What's more . You can see ' shooting stars' .
I remember way back in my engineering college days , we used to wake up till late ( not necessary closing our engineering drawing projects , but to find a shooting star ) and we did , a couple of times.
The open space ( since the campus was close 100 acres ) far from the city , used to be an easy sight.
It was a sight so beautiful . You see and want to capture it but its long gone even before you can blink. Science says they are jus…
I always appreciate places and people where both vibe and sync in , with each other . More so , when in today's day and age you have new places mushrooming every nook and corner and at the same place shutting down.
Whenever I am visiting a place which I am 100% sure that I'll review , I love to do my reading / background check , if you call so as to better understand the 'brains' behind the venture and see how does the entire ecosystem works henceforth.
: Did you know:
The beehive's internal structure is a densely packed group of hexagonal cells made of beeswax, called a honeycomb.
: Hive :
The hexagonal beehive motif, used extensively in the decor of the restaurant, represents community bonding.
Hive Kitchen & Bar seeks to actively promote such a way of life with food promotions, regular musical recitals and performances, giving its diners and visitors to the bar something more to come together for.
After all , like we say , dine-in ; in a group an…
This may be easy to relate like other things in life but hard to implement like many things in life. On one of my recent visits to Shimla ( yes, I do visit this place when I am not in Jaipur ) I came across a beautiful couple whom I have been seeing for years now but never really got a chance to meet or know them . Shimla as we know is crowded so Mashobra is the place for people like me who appreciate serenity . They live in this beautiful area atop a hill with a home ( I am not allowed to call a house ) designed and done beautifully by the two of them . You meet them ( though they don’t like to be discussed or talked about and prefer living peacefully ) and you will know what it takes to be in a relationship , be married , raise kids and more importantly be with that one person all throughout thick and thin and yet everything stays afresh . Whenever I used to go to Mashobra all we did was to exchange some smiles and hand waving . Bad on my part , I never even said a hello or a go…
