Charity is not Enough!

It is quite easy to live life by ignoring problems around you which are not directly related to you. However, it is not the best way tolive. Indeed it is very insensitive way to live your life. By closing your eyes,reality will not change. Quantum physics does not work at this level.

I am talking about poor and underprivileged peoples. There is no end to their suffering. Every winter people die because of extreme cold as they do not have shelter and woollen cloth to keep them warm. In summer they die because of extreme hot temperature. In between they die because of hunger, malnutrition and due to non-availability of medicine and healthcare.

All this happens around us. We read in newspapers, watch inTV and sometimes saw from our own eyes. But instead of doing something, we gossip about it and move on! As if someone else has to do something for them. Manypeople hold government responsible as if someone else elected government forthem. In democracy, it is responsibility of every citizen to be politicallyactive and caste vote to right candidate. Blaming government is futile. As blame come back to us.

It is not that no one is doing anything for them, there are many NGO’s doing remarkable work to help needy people. The main problem is at individual level. We have time for everything except to help someone to live life better. You might consider yourself nice person because you regularly give charity. But did you ever enquire whether your charity is reaching to right hand or it is consumed before by others?  According to one Hindustan Times report:

 “The Delhi high court has called for toughening of licensing norms for NGOs observing that 99% of them are “fraud” and “merely money making devices”.

In such scenario, giving charity is not enough. On contrary, it may happen that your charity is being used for wrong purposes. The best way out is to check personally where your money is going or find needy people around you and help them in whatever way you can. Your little time and effort can bring huge change in someone’s life.

Charity is not the only way to help. Sometimes your kind words, a smile and little time can make bigger impact then money. It is not always the poor who need help, sometimes well to do peoples stuck in such situation that they are on mercy of poor peoples. Surprisingly, they never let you down. Thus, do not think yourself superior and other inferior if you are helping them. We all are human and we all are equal. It is our responsibility to help those who left behind because of various reasons. Love all, help others and hate none.

Live for Today

 

 

“Life is like an Ice cream, enjoy it before it melts!”

 

When there is night in the west, there is a day in the East. Therefore, earth remain bright all the time. Similarly, in our life every situation has bright side and a dull side. We just need to try to see the bright side.

To live a happy life stop making detailed long-term planning. Live in today, care for today and do today’s work today. Future is very unpredictable, so do not plan much about future. You do not know what tomorrow will bring for you. Do not spent today, dreaming about tomorrow.

As we grow older, even in our 40’s, our perception about world and life change. What we thought as important, no longer remain important for us after just twenty years. You will be different you after every years. If you have to enjoy, enjoy today. If you have to work, work today. If you have to live, live today.

“Life is short, make it sweet. Do not put all the flowers for your grave.”

 

Never give up!

We all face difficulties in our life at some point of time; however, different people handle such situation differently. How you tackle your problems determine what kind of person you are! Different approach can work for different people, but one who never gives up always succeeds.

Life is the best thing we have; however, that does not mean life is simple or fair. Very few things are simple in life. Life is unpredictable and it is not necessary that good deeds results in good return. Most often, you are not rewarded for your good deeds, on the contrary sometimes you face worst results after helping someone. For example: you saw someone standing on lonely road in hot summer afternoon for lift, you stopped your car and let him in. As he sits inside your car he took out his gun and asked you to step out of car and handover all your  expensive things to him. Not only he robbed everything from you but also, left you alone on a highway in hot afternoon.

Let me give you a real life example of Dr. Kafeel Khan from UP, India. Dr. Kafeel, a paediatrician at Gorakhpur’s BRD Medical College saved life of several babies who would have died due to the scarcity of oxygen cylinders in hospital. He called everyone and arranged as many oxygen cylinders as he could for babies. Still 30 children died due to insufficient supply of oxygen. He was booked for the oxygen supply tragedy just because he was a Muslim and sent to Jail. He has been released on bail by the high court only recently, after the court found no evidence to prove medical negligence on part of Dr Kafeel Khan in dispelling his duties to save the children. Story does not end here. When he came out of Jail, his younger brother was shot and hospitalize. A saviour became victim of politics.

Do not do good in expectation of good return. If you are God fearing person, do good for your lord, if you are non religious, do good for your own happiness. However, do not expect from others, rewards of your goodness. You will always be disappointed. In short term, life is not fair. But in long term it might be preparing you for bigger challenges. So, Never give up. Think what life is asking from you? How you can change situation upside down. Where there is a will there is a way.

When Winston Churchill, who served as the prime minister of Great Britain from 1940 to 1945 and from 1951 to 1955, was asked to give speech in a university, he gave a speech containing most powerful message for everyone. He said Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

 

Work hard, party harder

Life is beautiful. To make it more beautiful you need to organise your professional life properly. Always keep your personal and professional life separate. Unfortunately, in Indian subcontinent, this is not the case. Employees will bring tension and work to home. Instead of focussing on work during office hours and pleasure during holidays, most of the employees mix work and pleasure and achieve no good result.

Most of us spent around half hour in travelling from home to office and same time in returning from office to home. This time can be utilising for transition from home mode to office mode provided you are not driving. If you are driving, then probably best thing is to focus on the road. However, if you are not driving, start thinking and planning for your work. While returning, do the same thing about the home. In office, avoid taking personal call or keep them short. Your full focus should be on work. No unnecessary chatting, no videos, no social media, just work. Similarly, when you are at home do not take calls from office, until it is damn important. When you go on holidays, switch off your company mobile. Focus of enjoying. Have party. Do not even think about any work. Refresh yourself. Spend quality time with your family and friends. Do what you like the most.

In this way, not only you will be able to perform well in your work but also will be able to live a more fulfilling life. Always remember your priorities. Initially, we start earning for our family, for living a better life but somewhere in the middle we forget our priorities and reason why we wanted to have money. Working hard is good; however, mixing work with personal life is not a good idea. Do not sacrifice happiness of your family and your health for your promotion.

There is no point in achieving success, if there is no one to celebrate it.

A Journey to the Land of Bliss…

Please read till the end to find meaning of the post.

Once upon a time, there was a nomad tribe. Their leader had a book of guidance and a map to reach the ultimate place of bounty, pleasure and tranquility. On his deathbed, tribal leader gave book of guidance to his son and commanded him to live by the code of book and follow the right part as shown in the book and continue journey towered place of ultimate bliss! After the Leader of tribe died, his son become new leader. He buried his father and after few days of mourning, he continues the journey towards unknown and unseen world.

New leader also had an 18 years old son; he himself was 50 years old. There were around 200 more people flowing them. While travelling, they stop at some location for few weeks and perform different types of juggling and magic acts to earn living and then again move on in search of Place of Bliss!

Twenty years passed, they cover 90% of the journey, the new leader on his deathbed instructed his son same thing which his father instructed him. On that Rex-the son of new leader asked politely “ Father I will surely follow your instruction, but my loving father just tell me if we have any proof or evidence that the book we are following and the path which we are traversing is correct?” On his question father get angry and shouted on the son “Since the time of our forefather we are following this book, do you think they were wrong? Only you are intelligent.  He continued, “This is a true book wherein there is nothing wrong written. We must take all peoples to that place of eternal bliss.” Son replied, “Father I believe you, please do not be angry. I promise you that I will go to that place.

After death of his father, Rex continued journey towards blessed place. He was ambitious and in hurry to reach there. Without taking any stopover, moved day and night. Few people leave him, but he was confident about his destination. On the way, some people stopped him and asked where he is going. He told them and asked them to come with him. However, those people laughed and told him there is no such place in the vicinity. Determined, Rex continued his journey.

Finally, he reached near to the destination. The same location as shown in map as blessed place. In his joy and delight, he started running towards it. There was a cliff and it was not possible to see beyond it. While running, he started dreaming about blessed place. Book mentioned it as most beautiful and wonderful place where no one will die or become old. Everything will be in abundance. There will not be any suffering and….

All of a sudden, he realized that there is no ground below his feel! He tried to make balance but it was too late. He was falling in the deep valley. He shouted-Save me! However, there was no one to save him. Many of those who follow him blindly also fell down with him. It was a very deep valley. While falling down he was cursing his father and that out dated book, which his ancestors were following. He was too late to realize all this. He though if he would have given heed to those passerby who told him not to follow this path he might not be in this condition. All his hard work go in vain. He saw pointed rocky ground beneath. He struck the ground, his body divided in to pieces, and he died.

This is a fake story. However, it contain a very important and powerful message. That message is:

Do not follow even your Parents Blindly. They can be wrong! At the end, you receive what you believe. You have time until your death to find and follow true path. Choose wisely not blindly!
