But one day it will wither away
Expect a glass to never break,
But one day ,it will break into pieces
Expect your dog to stay with you forever
But one day ,it has to go away
Every thing in life has a lifecycle,it has to grow mature and die one day.
But still we expect people to respond the way we want, things to stay the way they are.
Expectations are a heavy burden to carry. The more we expect out of something or someone, the higher our chances of disappointment become.
Nobody likes disappointment. A way to avoid it is to shift our mentality from that of having expectations to one of looking for possibilities.
Looking for possibilities instead of having expectations allows us to adjust our goals and maintain a positive outlook on what the future holds.
It allows us to look at life in an entirely different way: If great things happen, it’s wonderful; but if our interactions and work don’t bring immediate rewards, everything is fine regardless because the possibility of reaping them down the road is still there.
Doesn’t this mentality make life much more enjoyable? Much less stressful?

Life is like a boat.
It travels from shore to shore.
At times ,its you who decides your destination.
And at times ,its the direction of the wind that compels you to reach a terminus.
And Your stay depends upon the weather there.
If the weather is suitable,you leave your footprints on the shore.
But if its not......then you have to MOVE ON.
From one shore to another!!

Now, I have become an aunty scrooge :P-a big penny pincher :).Even if I feel like having an ice-cream,I avoid it-just to save a 10 rupee note(Mumma always used to say that you will realise the value of money once you will start earning yourself.Now I realised what she actually wanted to say).
I never valued the fruits that were kept in the refrigerator by mumma but now I will do, once I will go back home .I never knew that an apple kept in the refrigerator could cost Rs 15/- and a glass of milk Rs 12/-(Itni mehngai...huhh!).
I even learnt to travel by local buses and metros.Now I know the routes of 392 and 543.And I can reach any place in South Delhi on my own.(Its like my second home:) ).
Life and People out here are different.People are running to make their ways out of the traffic jams to reach their offices on time.And then the heat.Earlier I used to laugh at girls who covered their full faces and looked like the talibans but now ,even I am a part of them(garmi hi itni hai...)
But nonetheless ,my experience with a metro has been quite good.
Hats off to Delhi!!
And pa ma ,I grew up finally (though a bit but I did)

And then ,in the third week of februrary ,I got my CAT results.I had scored a decent 94 percentile.The result didnt bother me much, as I was enjoying my stint as a web designer but then came a shocker -my TCS joining.I loved my work but realised that ,payslips do have some value. It was time for me to move out of my hometown,to start a new life,a life -all mine!!
Now ,I am at TCS ,Noida for the past one and a half month.

While searing for an answer to the question that :how is a human being formed?",I got the following answer.
This is what I got ,a zygote that is that came
into existence after the mitosis and meiosis of cells
Well wait wait...I am not going to discuss biology
here but I need an answer to my simple question
that if humans are made up of cells then where from
this religion came into existence.
A little child doesnt know anything at all,all the lessons
of life he gets are from his/her parents or from the society.
Then is it not possible that the lessons that we got were wrong...
I dont know about you but I feel that there is a possibilty
of this to happen.Then if a few wrong people divided us on the
basis of caste ,creed,religion,language then can we not correct this mess.
Yes we can...I lately heard of an example where two people
fell in love,the guy was a muslim and the girl was a hindu.
They both got married and were blessed with a baby.
And when the authorities asked them to fill the column of religion
in the baby's birth certificate they simply refused saying that
they dont want their child to be bound by a single faith.
It was an hour of revelation for me....I think this society
will actually be a good place if we consider each other
as humans and nothing else.
And to be true ,that is what we are.......Then.........
Lets us all stay united
And live our lives happily
Let us concentrate on the constructive things
And Let us work together, for the mankind
How many of us know the religion of Albert Einstein or Isaac Newton
All that we know is, they were great minds who worked for the MANKIND
Think what may have happened
Had they only worked for a particular religion.
P.S : Happy Republic Day guys!

To begin with ,lets see what HAPPINESS actually is.We all love to be happy but where is this happiness sold? Had someone been selling it, in these markets , I am sure everyone would have been happy. But that is not the case. We all look for happiness in things that satiate us and that includes trivial things like shopping, hanging out with friends, getting good gifts and loads of money. But I have often found that the moment I enter my home after shopping loads of stuff I start thinking about the money I spent, and whether the dress suits to the tee or not. And hence this kind of happiness is momentary, hence it isn't happiness at all. It flies as soon as we satiate our desires.
Now you must be wondering why am I blabbering about happiness and what is true happiness if its not satiating your own self.
Well guys I am writing on this because today I found the real happiness. And you wont believe it came from the most ordinary of things.
I found my happiness in teaching students, in giving them just a small part of what I have learnt in these two decades of my life. Frankly speaking I started this for money but within a day itself my view changed. Now I am doing this just to enlighten the lives of a few, not for any monetary benefits. Believe me this inner satisfaction is divine. The jetlag of teaching students for 3-4 hours is infact the real comfort for me. And when a student solves a question on a topic taught by you, You actually feel you are in empyream.
Thats why I say to give unconditionally is divine because it holds the secret to the inner satisfaction and true happiness.
"Only when we give joyfully without hesitation or thought of gain,
can we truely know what true happiness means."
