A date with life around you….

When you don’t know what is best for you, just be the best for this world.

Why is it so that we are good only for a few people? We show courtesy to only a section of people. We show our helping hand, our utmost feelings only to someone special only. It simply reflects that we have trained our mind to act nicely only to specific class of people. And actually we are not nice from our soul. Because when the world is in front of us, with its worries and challenges, we show our back to it, saying “it’s not my business”. Youth is the most outrageous blood on earth. This class of population could do wonders with its enthusiasm. But they are busy dating their girlfriends or boyfriends, or spending endless hours on smoking, drinking, hanging out with friends and getting virtual (these days). Although this youth can be humane towards this challenging earth, that could transform this wretched place into a beautiful island.

If a boy has a girl friend, and she asks for his help may be in the form of money or protection, the boy is willing to provide. But if the same goes with an old lady or a gentleman, the boy has no time to even listen to their problems. These days we can hear a number of shameless people who even don’t have time for their own parents.

Anyways, it’s not about one’s parents or kith and kin, but the homo-sapiens, as a whole. We can show our gratitude to this society as well. Buying a number of toys for your own kid is nothing much for a rich parent. But buying a single toy, even once in a year, for a poor child, is much more than we can think of. It just requires a heart that can feel other’s feelings.

Everyone thinks of his own family, own, possessions, but never beyond the relations. Why not to think for the nature as well? The street animals, the natural grass, pure river bodies, and the beautiful birds, these are also the ones who need our love and care. But when are we going to have time to think about them, except in books of environmental science? Who has the time to spend with them, have relationship with them, and get into action to do something for life around us? Let’s just make a bookmark in our memory to go on date with such valuable gifts.

READING IS CONTAGIOUS

WORLD BOOK FAIR 2015

Reading is contagious. I believe this. One of my dear ones has presented me with a pile of books. And it is of immense pleasure to me that these are not just books. It’s rejuvenation to me. I have been blessed with “diamond comics”. These tiny scriptures have taken me too my golden era of childhood. I got 7 books, and it just took a night to finish off with reading every bit of those valuable pieces of writing.  I was lost into the colourful dresses of PINKY, red turban of CHACHA CHAUDHARY, tall and bald physique of SABOO. I was going through each book as if I was in my 4- 5 standard. Today, I am mature to have a perspective to understand the terms like graphics of the book, colour theory, font setting, editing, layout and many more. But I’m missing something. I’m missing my school and neighbour friends, my pocket money that i used to receive (it was limited), with which it was not easy to purchase a large number of my favourite books like comics. Diminished are those memories when I used to wait anxiously for the next edition of the comics, and managing money to purchase it was much more annoying, I remember. When school home work became secondary most of the times, when anything else became subsidiary for me, these precious write ups were enough to add to my treasury. And today, when I am able to afford a thousand bucks worth comics or any of my favourite book, I have lost the real charm to read it, the feel to get into the character. Today I am unable to take out time to go through them. And I cannot make my rest of the tasks secondary. Times have changed. The habits have changed. Reading has become even professional. But when you see someone reading a comic and sitting in front of you, in a train, on the bench of a park or in a lobby, your eyes notice them, and you probably ask – can i just have a look to this book? Oh from where could you manage to grab it? May I have a copy of it? This is the way the reading is promoted. Reading is never old, monotonous and expensive. It can be shared.

So what are you waiting for? Go and grab a book of your taste and take out time to go through it. An if you manage to read an old and popular book of your childhood time, it could memorize your precious time and bring a smile or a wishful tear to your eyes.
