Was it all futile?

It took me some time to finally settle down with the reality that 2015 has come to an end. It was indeed a beautiful year. It was a wonderful shift from the graduate portfolio to the postgraduate one. It was the year when my dream of getting associated with National Law University came true, where I got an opportunity to pursue Legum Magister and hone my legal skills. My parents were delighted as I cleared the LLM entrances of most of the Universities in India and on top of that, I graduated with a 90% plus from my last attended university. We even started 2015 with a beautiful family trip to Gangtok, the capital and the largest town of the Indian state Sikkim and ended 2015 by visiting Jaipur and Jodhpur, referred to as the pink city and the blue city respectively, the two most beautiful cities of Rajasthan.

But personally speaking, climbing on these stepping stones of success did not give me much of pleasure. It is great to be good in academics and score good marks, but then, deep down I knew, I am not able to gather much of knowledge. Attending classes, giving semester exams, scoring good is not the ultimate aim of life. Moreover, I wanted to do something more than being a book worm, something, that could add to my personality and my skills. But then, I could not even complete most of the items in the to-do list prepared by me in the beginning of the year 2015. I wonder where did I go wrong? Blaming the paucity of time, as I was involved with so many other commitments will be the most common excuse anyone would make. But then, time wasted will never come back and repenting over the mistakes already committed will make me feel no better.

I don’t know how most of the people would go about in such a situation. But it is already the 9th day of the year 2016, and I am willing to make a change. I am willing to compensate for my own losses. I am willing to start all over. I am sure there would be many of you like me. DON’T REGRET PEOPLE. Just chalk out a new strategy and  a new set of beautiful agendas including the ones missed last year and the ones not executed. And never forget, we are human beings and we tend to make mistakes, but rectifying and learning from those mistakes is the most important in a human life!!

Stop Acid Attacks

It is surprising that India lags behind Pakistan and Bangladesh in terms of rules and regulations pertaining to acid attacks. The number of instances of acid attacks is rising continuously. In India, most of the attacks are targeted on the females on grounds of ego clashes with a man or rejection of a love proposal or sexual rejections.  One will be surprised that in India, property and land disputes also become a cause of acid attacks on a person. I wonder what an ego clash it is, that forces a man to depict such an inhumane behavior towards a female? Is rejection of the love proposal more painful as compared to the pain one inflicted on a lady by pouring some acids on her? What if, she is ready to marry the acid attacker and is ready to accept his proposal after the acid attack. Would the attacker accept her with a disfigured face? You loved her, right? This is the harsh reality of the world. It will be wrong on my part if i say, that acid attacks are common only in India. Today, acid attacks is one of the major crime all over the world. Even, the developed nations like United States has reported rising instances of acid attacks.

The acid attack not only disfigures a person’s face or other body parts, but it eats away their soul. The acid attack survivors suffer extensive medical, psychological and social trauma and rejection throughout their lives. Most of the victims in India belong to poor families who do not have sufficient money even for the victim’s treatment. But the truth is, most of the victims are disowned by their parents and are forced to live a secluded life. Around 90% of acid attack victims are women and most of them survive to those attacks.

In the year 2013, the Criminal Amendment Act, recognized acid attack as a crime and prescribed minimum imprisonment of 10 years which may extend to life sentence along with fine. But, legislation is not sufficient to stop such a heinous crime. More and more people have to come forward and fight for the cause. It is not the victims who has to suffer the social stigma, but the perpetrators who move freely in our nation. There has been a strict ban on the counter sale of acids in India as pronounced by the Supreme Court in 2013, but the open sale of acids stills continues even in the capital city, Delhi. The acids are freely available in the market which is regularly used by the people for cleaning their toilets. Thus, the perpetrators have easy availability of the acids. Their are NGO’s working in India to stop acid attacks, but initiatives has to be taken from each and every citizen to stop buying acids and even file a complaint to the concerned authority, if we come across a person selling acids freely. We all have a smart phone? Right? Just click a picture of the seller, so that he doesn’t disappear and file a complaint of the seller and make him popular.


Life is beautiful !!

Why do we worry so much? How can we make our lives peaceful and happy? Why do we feel gloomy at times, without any reason? Why are we caught in a web of contrasting thoughts at times? Why life seems to be so meaningless and useless? Will termination of life, erase all the pains? The number of questions is infinite but the end results are somewhat same. There is something or someone due to which we ain’t feeling happy.

Most of the times when we comes across such depressing and gloomy moments, we lose hope, which undoubtedly is the worst decision we take.

Firstly, what we need to understand is, that life is what we make it. It can never be the same. To achieve what we desire, we have to deal with the hurdles. We need to be strong, both physically and mentally. We need to have a positive mindset. We need to start believing in ourselves.

Secondly, we should never hold our pains. Share it with your closed ones, who may help you in finding a solution to your problems. Don’t worry, if you find yourself alone and you don’t have anyone with whom you can share your problem. Simply, write down your worries in a piece of paper. You will feel light. Try it out, it actually works.

Thirdly, instead of cribbing over something again and again, try to find a solution. Nothing is impossible in this world. Don’t forget what has always been taught to us, the word impossible also says, I-M-POSSIBLE. Still, if after putting so much of effort, things doesn’t get sorted, accept it as a part of life, because life can never be a bowl of colorful berries. But keep putting efforts. Effortless tasks gives zero result.

And lastly, have faith in yourself. The day you will lose faith from your own self, you can never make a change in your life. Every problem we come across is a part and parcel of life, which makes us sturdy to deal with the life in a better way. Believe in God and in your parents. Your parents will give the best piece of advice based on their experience. Don’t let troubles kill you. Kill the troubles.


Nothing can stop you..from being happy..

For many of us, the world turns into a bitter place due to number of reasons. Heart breaks, betrayal, losing our loved ones, failures and innumerable other reasons. At times, our mood swings haunts us to such an extent that it is really difficult to deduce the real cause of our pains. We keep struggling to find reasons. We become depressed. We lose hope and find ourselves in a gloomy state. But we don’t realize, that the reason is not as complicated as much we have made it. It’s just that things ain’t going according to our way and we presume that it is the end.

I won’t lie, even i am an extremely emotional person who gets attached to humans and things very easily and i have been betrayed most of the times. But when i sit back, relax and analyze, it’s not the people or things that is bad, but it is the connection or the spark that fades with times. Real people will stick to you through your thicks and thins. But the fake ones won’t. So, in a way, it is good that i realized their real ugly face before suffering more pain and losing myself. Moreover, we learn from our own experiences and that makes us a strong person.

Life is not a bowl of colorful berries. We all have to face the black and white situation, and, the real test in human life is in finding colors in the black and white scenario. Never forget, you are your own master. No one can help you to get out of the web in which you are stuck. Your own judgment and strength will help you in carving a path which will ultimately lead to success. People will come, and people will go. This is the blunt reality of life. When someone leaves you intentionally, be it your best friend or your lover, with our without reason, never blame yourself or your fate. Just thank God, that he saved you. You are beautiful, you are strong. Positivity is the key to happy and successful life. Never let any situation or any person break you.


End of innocence

Undoubtedly, technology made our lives much easier. It made the world a global village. It made the functionality of our lives easier. It served as a boon for people of each and every age group. The modifications in the technology from telephone, fax, computers to mobile phones, tablets, Apple gadgets, Laptops further eased our lives. But do we realize the problems which followed the technology?

When my parents share their life experiences and their childhood stories, i could not actually relate to what i am seeing these days or to some extent what i have experienced. Recently, in a family function, all my relatives and their children of different age groups gathered at my place. We were singing and dancing to the tune of Bollywood music.

But on the other hand, it was so depressing to see the kids fiddling with their parents phone and few even owned their own phones, and their eyes were fixed on the screen of the phones and the tablets. They were busy messaging or chatting or playing games on the phone and they had no interest in playing games like hide-n-seek or chess or ludo or any other games which can be played in a group. I wonder why technology is snatching away the innocence of the kids and why the parents are not able to keep a check on their kids activities. Why kids are being exposed to content which is not suitable for their age. Why they are not being educated about the necessity of playing outdoor games, involving themselves with other kids.

But seriously, i am not trying to elucidate the banes of technology. It is ones personal choice to stick or not to stick to their phones throughout the day. Don’t let the real life fade away in the purview of technology.

(Even i am struggling to get rid of the habit of peeping into my phone to check if i have received any messages or mails)
