Best Things in Life – 1

Posted on

Have you ever thought “What are the best things in life?” I am sure most of us have not. Whether you are student or a working professional or an entrepreneur , just give it a thought before reading further…… What all things come to your mind? Is it money , beautiful house or nice car? My dear friend , none of these things matter after some point. Recently I came across below video and that inspired me to write this post.

What do you think ? We are happy in our small world and very small things gives us great pleasure. It may be talking to old school/college friends after long time or it may be going to your native after long time or it may be getting first round of funding (even though it is little) after lots of hard work. Isn’t it? That’s Relativity Of Life.

My Friends Have Changed !!!!!


Life is amazing. Sometimes it makes us feel like friends are everything and on the other hand sometimes it makes us feel like they are no longer my friends. They become professionals. If it is the case with you then this post is for you. However always remember Life is beautiful: Live it , Learn it , Love it.  Earlier I wrote about friendship but is specific to friendship day. If you are in university pursuing your education , you may miss your old friends from previous universities/ schools OR you are professional and you miss your friends. Some day you tried calling your friend , but before call gets connected you hung phone thinking “Why should I call him/her? He/She should call me. I was his/her close friend.” Or “He/She might be busy. He/She will call me when he/she gets time.” At initial stages it is more like I should not disturb him/her but as time passes it becomes “why should I contact first?” . But my dear friend have you ever thought what your friend is thinking ? What if he/she is thinking the same way and you both were waiting for other person to contact you first. So dear reader “Nothing has changed. You are still friends. Life is still beautiful”. Don’t wait for other to contact you first.

Is This Really My Life ?


If you are feeling like “Is this really my life?” than this post is for you. Don’t worry you are not the only person who feels the same. There are thousands of people out there in the world. Do you feel like why I have so many problems in my life?  .Always remember one thing “If you don’t have problems in your life than I am sure you are not living life.”  Life is what you make of it.

There are moments when you ask God “Why me?” But according to me you should be thankful to him because he tried you. There are thousands of people like you in the world but he chose you. There is something unique in you. So now on wards when you face problems and you feel like “Why me?” Just remember above lines and say “Try me.” . If you are not convinced yet than let me explain it it a different way. If you don’t face any problems/challenges and you don’t respond well to those challenges than you will die like an ordinary person. No one will remember you. Is it okay with you? or on the other end you want yourself to be remembered by next generation.

Still not convinced: Think of the time when you got success . It can be your school/university grade ,extra curricular activities , promotion or it can be anything else. Now ask yourself. When you got success, have you asked “Why me?”.  Answer would be “No” Right !!! Than why are you afraid now?

Friendship Day: As we grow


Every year friendship day is celebrated on first Sunday of August. We celebrate it every year ,but as we grow older ,the form of celebration changes. School student , college student and professionals celebrate it in a different way. In this post I am just writing how the way of celebration changes as we grow older.

1. As a School Student

First as a  school child we tie “Friendship belt” at every friends hand. Even we tie “Friendship belt(band)” to  aunt/neighbour if we have extra “Friendship belt”. And next day at the school we show one another our friendship belt  and boast if you have the highest number of  “Friendship belt”.

2. College Student

As we finish our school and most importantly HSC we enter into “golden” college life. College student are whose enjoy it fully. We have our group/class . We spend almost whole day together. The way college student enjoy this day is best described in below video.

3. Professional(1-2 year)

As we start working at somewhere, we are no more with our group and class. We meet new people who behave more professionally. But on this day we remember our friend and plan to meet somewhere at least for a day.(As it is on Sunday). And we have a great smile on our face.

4. Professional (More Experience)

As we gain more experience as well as we grow older we have responsibility and we turn ourselves busy into  these activities. But even on friendship day we remember our school/college friends and call some of them. Now we see our children enjoying their days and we are more concerned about their future.

5. Old Age

And finally comes the old age. Now we have our grand children and our children are living professional life. Now we become alone and some of our friends are no more on the earth. We are left with only sweet memories. We share our memories with our grandchildren and try to see ourselves in them.

Why I have so many Problems in my Life ???

Secret to problem solving: don't think too hard

Is it the question that you ask yourself almost everyday. You are tired of your daily hectic schedule. Then this post is for you. First of all everyone on this earth has problem. If you are a student you had problem with your study , your faculty, your school teacher , your tuition class teacher. If you are a profession , you had problem with your superiors/ colleagues. But my dear friend always remember you can not expect everyone to be yourself . This is one of the best quote from Swami Vivekanand

“In a day, when you don’t come across any problems – you can be sure that you are travelling in a wrong path”

And finally what I suggest is take your problem as challenges.

You can not Expect Everyone to be Yourself

Posted on

This post is for every single person on this earth. If you have not experienced it before, you will surely experience it in your life. You have experienced with your friends , colleagues , classmate , cousins , neighbor and many more. There are situations when someone make you think  “How one can behave such way? That is not fair.” But my dear friend as the title says you can not expect everyone to be like yourself. Almighty GOD has made everyone unique. Everyone has their own belief , their own culture , their own value as well as their own thinking process. Probably what you feel for others , the same feeling someone had for you at different situations.

The other situation can be “Good things always happens to others.” Then I would say “You are also “others” for someone else.” So respect each and every person you meet.

Friendship recognizes faults in friends but does not speak of them.


True friendship acknowledges imperfections, accepts them as part of our individual makeup, and focuses on our positive aspects instead of expounding upon our faults. Your friends don’t like you to comment upon their failings any more than you like them to criticize you. When your friends are discouraged or disappointed in themselves, a word of encouragement will serve much better than a sermonette. To be the kind of friend you would like to have, be a good listener, offer advice when you are asked for it, and treasure the trust that your friends have placed in you. Praise them for their achievements and sympathize when they fall short, but avoid offering “constructive criticism” or playing devil’s advocate. Most of us expect more from ourselves than anyone else ever would, and we are painfully aware of our shortcomings. We don’t need to be reminded of them by our friends.
