Different but Same


It is a beautiful Sunday Morning at Melbourne, Australia. Everyone at my house are in the weekend mood and here I am , sitting in one corner thinking about what should I write. It’s almost 3 months for me in this multi-cultural ‘world no. 1 best city to live in‘ city. When I first stepped in to this country, I was quite unsure about whether I will be able to adjust with Australian People even though I did some reading online about Australian people and culture. Initially I was very quite in talking to people thinking I might hurt their feelings considering my open nature. From my reading, my impression was that people over here will be very different. It is true in some sense but not true in absolute sense. People over here are quite different in terms of language they speak, the kind of food they like to eat, the kind of clothes they wear and the way they live. I think that difference is because of the past history and environments. Over the past three months, I had many opportunities to talk to many local people. I spend almost  40 minutes daily in commutation and that is blessings in disguise as during that time, I have opportunity to closely observe and understand local people. As I mentioned before, people are quite different in one sense but on the other side we are all same. “The way we think about our partner”, “the way we think about our children”, “our love for children”, “emotional attachment with some of friends and family members” and “respect for our parents” are all same. Stephen Hawking has rightly said :

We Are All Different, But We Share The Same Human Spirit. Perhaps It’S Human Nature That We Adapt And Survive. – Stephen Hawking

I have traveled a lot in different parts if India and had similar observation.

Alone or Lonely? What’s the Difference?


In English dectionary , Alone and Lonely are synonyms but acording to me they are completely different. Being Lonely means you don’t have someone with you to share something. It can be considered as one of “those” sad moments. While on the other hand I define being Alone as “Enjoying with soul”. Loneliness may kill you but being alone will build you.  From my limited experience , I came to know that most of the people hate “Being Lonely” because they don’t know the power of “Being Alone”. It will help you to heal many problems/difficulties of your life. Okay. I am convinced that by being alone I can build better me but to be frank I don’t have time.I have family[responsibility] , I have job[tension/pressure] , I could not even meet my old friends and there are many more.. But my dear friend “Being Alone” for few minutes is going to help you in all these things. I am not asking for more than 5 minutes daily of your so called “busy” schedule. Okay. I will find time but what to do in these 5-10 minutes What do I get?. Hmm. That’s the problem. We want something from whatever we do. But sometimes best things in the world are free for example what do get by “Smile”. [I will write more about best things in the world in the upcoming post.] In this 5-10 minutes you can:

– Read your diary if you have one

– Check your pictures library [It will make you realize how your life has changed]

– Observe nature [My Favourite]

– Talk to your parents if they are not living with you.

– Think about yourself [Where were you before 5-10 years ago.]

– Do Nothing. [Yes really]

It is not an Experience if you can not learn from it.


We all have heard that “Experience makes man perfect”. “Experience is the best teacher”. But do we know the inside story. Recently I realized that  all the proverb/thoughts are right but not always. It is true that experience is the best teacher but only if you are ready to learn. For example you are working on some project/ somewhere and if you can not learn from your mistake then it is not worth. In this case you had experience of working on project/somewhere but you have not learnt anything. So my point is experience and learning is not same. If you have great experience on something then you can not be sure of learning aspect. But instead if you learnt something then it is for sure that you have great experience. And for learning it does not matter for how much duration you have worked. The only thing that count is “What you have learnt”.

Always look for learning factor in whatever you do. Experience will automatically come. 

Live the Best and Leave the Rest.

Generally people are more concerned about what other may think about him/herself when they want

-To do something

-To wear something

-To behave different way

-To eat something

-To speak something

My dear friend what others are thinking about you is not at all your concern. “Do what you love otherwise you are forced to love what you do.”  If  you fall under categories mentioned above then remember If you wait today, you will wait forever. Your excuse may be we have to live in our society so we can not behave/think the way we want. So here is one story

Many years ago Marconi told his friends that he want to communicate wireless. He wants to send radio wave as wireless signal. After listening to Marconi’s thought his friend took him to psychiatrist . But he sticks to what he want to do (has thought). After many experiments  he invented Wireless Communication and today he is known as “Father” of  Wireless Communication. He was awarded with Nobel Prize in 1909.What if Marconi surrendered to his friends and behaved accordingly. If he surrendered ,

-No Wireless Communication.

-No WiFi(Internet)

-No Mobile

-No Radio

Can you imagine world without wireless communication? No. Right.

So be yourself.

Achievement and Success are not Same

Posted on

Most of the people in this world are using achievement and Success interchangeably. But it is not the case. There is a difference between Achievement and Success. There are people who have number of achievement but they could not succeed. The reason is they are more self   centered.Although everyone in today’s world are self centered only the “radius” that matters. People who got something in life by stealing others Idea are called achievers but they did not get success. There are people who don’t have any achievements but they get success because of their thought process. So according to me we all should keep one thing in mind “Treat others the way you want others to treat you.” If we keep it in our mind we surely get Success along with Achievements. And also you can enjoy your achievements.
