The category for my today’s quote will be Patriotism :

Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.

George Bernard Shaw(1856-1950) Irish writer.

There might be many countries superior to yours but instead of complaining, accept all the flaws and work to overcome them.

Who saves his country violates no law.

Napoleon I(1769-1821) Napoleon Bonaparte. French general.

Rules for the betterment should never be violated. They are made not only for the country but also for you too!

If yet your blood does not rage, then it is water that flows in your veins. For what is the flush of youth, if it is not of service to the motherland.

Chandra Shekhar Azad (freedom fighter,India)

Patriotism doesn’t need to be shown, it is a feeling that needs to be felt!

A battle should never be left unfought!

Standard

Realizations are always sudden! And during teen age we realize a hell lot of things! About life, society, people and more important about our-selves!

31525_20131109_143511_motivational02

So, one day you wake up and suddenly realize that the world, in which you have been living in was just an illusion, and this realization leaves you shocked! Like a giant wave that comes to your footsteps, looks into your eyes (everything normal and beautiful) and the moment you extend your hands for a warm welcome, it slaps you hard and drags you along. You are trying, struggling to not to get swiped away by using your arms, legs and lungs to the fullest. But everything seems waste. It’s like the wave has come with a motive, to get you drowned. To see you completely submerged in water. Sometimes no matter how much you think that you will swim out, all by yourself. But before fighting we consider our self a loser. But what we forget is that every problem has a solution. We forget that even water pushes you up a few times. It gives you fair chances to fight back. But to rescue yourself, you need to fight. We just need to have patience and keep working towards our goals. Everything will eventually fall in place!:)

5 THINGS AVERAGE INDIAN CAN’T BE TAUGHT-

Standard

When I say an average Indian, it includes most of the us! Not only the common people, who don’t have major aspirations or ambitions, living only for roti, kapda aur makan but also those who have more than they deserve. Who are living only for their Instagram. Here average isn’t referred to the status one holds in society or how much money he makes. Here average is referred to the mental status of most of us.
1. You can’t teach them using resources in a sustainable manner
Reading this category you might think that, “oh, I don’t fall in this. I am a responsible person”or “I am a true Shaktiman fan, and do obey all lessons that he taught”, but please, honestly tell me, while your way from school/work to home how many leaking taps you saw and tried to close or report about it. Since you are in India, you will find many such taps but you definitely can’t stop at every nukkad for this Nobel cause. But my point is that even if you do it once, or at-least spread the word, it will make a huge difference. Even though I, myself miserably failed teaching the importance of resources to my maid, but this never made me stop. Few days later when I found her daughter in my “Sarva Shiksha” class, where I taught different subjects to students as a volunteer, I realized that my hard-work didn’t go in vain. Not to mother, but I was able to teach her daughter the same lesson. Later when her mother told me about her daughter saving water and food, I really felt good!

2. You can’t teach them healthy eating
The perk of being an Indian is that not only you get awesome food but also different types of food. And it’s a huge advantage,you see. After all, it was the masale which invited 200 years of slavery. Anyways, today, our mothers and grandmothers have learned the lesson that “use it all, before someone else claims on it”. And they use us as for safekeeping! They don’t have to do anything with proper diet and health. For them the food is healthy till it “has love”, which in Indian homes mean “homemade food”. Feeding on the fat loaded, spicy meals,six times a day does no harm but a burger is a poisonous! And if she is a non-vegetarian then, the fruits and vegetables are not more than grassto her!

3. You can’t teach them to follow rules
Rules!! You must have read that “rules are mead to be broken” and I am sure it must have come from a person with desi mindset. Honestly, as soon as we get some rules, we want to break them. It’s like, as soon as we get bubble wrap, we want to burst all the bubbles. If we are bound by the rules, we feel our very freedom is snatched away from us. And we also aren’t afraid of facing the later consequences. Call it being a daredevil or stupid, whatever you want, but that’s how our brains work!

4. You can’t teach them to pee in toilets-
Well, I don’t know whom to be blamed for this, the management for not providing and maintaining hygienic public toilets or the people, who are therefore forced to go on roads because they don’t have any alternative or they are too poor to build a proper washroom. But it is definitely embarrassing and obviously unhygienic, shopping vegetables next to someone who is peeing(my latest experience). I really find public urination the most disgusting and shameful action! Though in big cities, public urination laws are being followed in india, but the performance in small cities is dissapointing.

5. You can’t teach Indian mothers to throw away old stuffs-
Be it the bundles of old newspapers, sweet box, chocolate boxes, old dresses, which doesn’t fits to the youngest sibling, nothing can be taken away from them.They protect them like their cubs! They call it souvenir, memory or way of earning an extra penny (through kabadiwala). But, honestly, I love this habit of theirs. Though in greed of that extra buck only, something is being recycled. But also,it’s hard to convince them to donate the stuffs like old clothes, at least for my mum it is a hard task! And don’t ask why because in India you can question the government but not mum. And never even dare to question them!

When instagram ditched Log out button for iOS!

Standard

One thing that motivates me for waking up is Instagram! Every morning the first thing that I do is to go through my instagram. Because my phone is too old to lift the weight of instagram application so I decided to use it from my father’s iPhone 6. And so does my younger sister (well, she still hasn’t got her personal phone so she uses insta from papa’s phone as well). So, today when my sister went through her instagram profile and when it was finally my turn, she said she couldn’t get “log out” button. Later, when I searched for the button, it was actually not present in its usual place!  After the changes, made by instagram on 29 March, you can post longer videos but can’t log out. The log out button was diched for iOS! Well, they have said that they are working on fix but this wait is how long, no one knows.

But this definitely means two things –
1- Vidisha can’t get her regular fun and can sleep longer!
2- This also means that I can take over my sister’s account!!  Hehahaha #beingevil

ENGLISH: matter of status!

Standard

Warning: This post consist of writer’s personal thoughts, who is just wishing to share and know your opinion. No sentence intends to hurt anyone with any language(especially to English speakers).

I live in a country called India, which has 22 official languages and according to Census of India, the total number of mother tongues spoken here is 1652 and that’s the reason why we don’t have a national language. I know this must have came like “What!” even to many Indians too. But it’s true, Hindi is Rajya Bhasha not Rashtriya Bhasha! This wide difference is the beauty. A nation, comprises of 29 states and 7 union territories have their respective languages and their people are proud of it BUT somehow the language English has outshone others. Today people measure other’s level of intelligence with the number of english words they use in a sentence. The more number of English words used, the more educated he is! English language was chosen by our constitution as associate official language to avoid confusion among people who have different languages as majority of them, irrelevant of their birthplace & mother tongue, could understand English. After all they ruled on us for 200 years and that was uniform throughout! So that, they can converse properly but this language should not be imposed on anyone. I am not denying the importance of English in our country but if two people are comfortable in their own tongues then why this extra pressure of “have to speak two English words”. Why this show off? Why can’t we feel proud on our own language?  Why can’t we be confident about our mother tounge? Why the shame to speak our tongue in front of four people? Every Indian should ponder over these questions.

ps: going extreme with your language is also no option. I mean, killing others because they don’t speak your language is so dumb act. If all have to admit that except English, kaam nahi banne wala hai, but apni bhasha ko thodi izzat to deni chahiye na. This is our responsibility to stop our cultures and languages from extinction. These are our roots, our treasure that we have inherited from previous generations, we should protect it! 🙂

Problem with girls!

Standard

gabourey-sidibe-beauty-redefinedjpg-1024x967

I am a girl and I am super proud of that fact, but there are  few reasons about us that derives me nuts! Like-

  1. We give ourselves too much of importance! We think that the world is just busy noticing our dress (that if we have worn it before or not), our shoes ( if it’s going with the dress or not), or our make-up. Honestly girl, no one gives a damn about all these things until you are natural. Don’t be an “it girl” by wardrobe, be by your good behaviour! B)
  2. We don’t want to be “Ourselves”! I don’t know if majority of girls will admit it or not but the fact is that girls always want to be like someone else and this someone can be anyone. It can be your classmate who gets a lot of attention or your pretty cousin or an actress. If she is slim, you want that shape, if she has good hair, you spent on hair treatments to get that and the list goes on. Girls you need to understand that you are born goddess and goddess are pretty in every shape, size and colour. If someone do rejects you for this reason then remember that there is someone who will love the natural you. So say tata to jerks and wait for right people. 🙂
  3. We are filter lovers! I, personally know many girls who are just not ready to accept their real pictures. I mean, when you will look at their instagram  profile you will hardly find a picture filter free. Some pictures are so much edited that you can’t even spot a nose on the face and that really makes girl look like they have come from Venus! I am not completely against filters, in fact I use them too, but using it to make yourself look someone else is wrong. Accept yourself! Love your imperfections!  ❤
  4. Frame of girl! Come on, we all know that there is a stupid frame which asks girls to behave in a certain way.  But if you are not of that kind then don’t be ashamed for that. In fact, it’s good if you break that frame for future generations. It’s okay if you feel more comfortable in shirts and can’t be tip-top all the time. Just don’t change or try to fit yourself into that frame for the sake of few people how only show up to criticise you.
  5. Accept every fact about yourself! You are a girl, you wear a bra, you bleed once in a month, you give birth to a life. You don’t have to feel shy about admitting these stuffs. It’s how it is so just accept it. Stop creating a fuss or hiding it! You are special and remember this! 😀

Committing Suicide!

Standard

image

Auh! Topic seems to be of one of those boring passage writing books with the cover having a classic pen and paper. But I promise that it won’t be full of statitics and messages from parents, teachers or councelers, rather it will have more of emotional aspects. More important, it will highlight the view point if a student. Student because mostly it’s the youngsters who commit suicide due to many problems. I’ve been thinking about blogging on this topic from a long time but the recent suicidal of a young girl from my school just forced me to type down my thoughts.

image

Auhh! I feel the pain! I heard someone blaming the only girl of the family. They said that what kind of girl was she, didn’t cared about her parents.”Just because she failed in Maths exam and her parents scolded, she committed suicide!!” Every one in school has been talking about this. But those, who have been talking don’t know the real story. No one knows how many sleepless nights she had spent, how much she had cried or walked on sharp, pointed pieces of taunts.

image

Every night, the thought of living another day and bearing people who only showed up to criticize must have been no less than a noose in anyway. She was dying, every day, every second and living in the hope that her parents will understand her. But their rudeness, must have killed her two – forth. The thought of her dull future and ignorance of friends must have killed her three – forth and her remaining life, that
Dupatta had taken away! No one understands, not even I can understand the intensity of pressure exerted on her every    single veins. If she or any one took such a drastic step then there must be any serious reason behind. The situation must have been pushing her to take this step. She must have thought that may be in future no one will remember about her failure but then thought that will others allow her to forget her. Most important, will they let her parents to forget about this. When she was being breathless and remembered her happy times with family and threw her hands to save herself but with  the instant thought of shaming her family, she must have closed her eyes. Lets be real, everyone, at some point of life feels like taking their life but only brave ones can do it. It was the mistake of her parents. They should have calmly taken this situation. Encouraged her to study well for the retest. If they would have said her it’s OK, then things might  have been different. A child totally depends on his /her parents. But her parents, before taking up the situation, showed her the list of  “No. of ways she had offended them”.  But still, after all this I think that she had taken a wrong decision. I mean just going away without letting her story to be known by anyone is just so unfair! She should have yelled at people and told what was she going through. There are always two ways of dealing a situation – Face it or Back it. If she would have faced it maybe the story would have been different! But destiny had other plans! Horrible plans!
