Advice I would give my younger self

Have you ever thought, what would your life be if you had taken few decisions differently? Maybe you would have been a little more happier than you are now, or maybe you could have saved yourself from some trouble. Each decision that we make in our lives determines how they turn out. Sometime the decisions we make take us to the wrong path and sometime to the right path. Sometime we come across failure and sometime we enjoy the success. But once we take a decision , it cannot be flip-flopped. Once you made a bad decision in the past, it remains with you. You can’t go back in time to change things. But suppose, you get a chance to give some advice to your younger self, what would it be?

If I get this chance, I would give her 7 advices for sure.

1. DON’T LET YOUR EMOTIONS CONTROL YOU.

Over Sensitive and Emotional people tend to sympathise more with others. Although it is a boon as you can understand other’s sorrow well. But, it is a curse too. When it comes to making decisions which involve other’s sentiments, you always tend to drift towards one conclusion, i.e,  “Don’t be selfish” and you end of making decisions beneficial for them but sometimes toxic for you. So stop making decisions emotionally and start thinking rationally.

2. DON’T OVERTHINK

 There is a 5 by 5 Rule.
 “If its not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset about it.” 

3. SOCIALIZE MORE 

It’s totally okay to be an introvert, where you’re shyer and value alone time more than spending time with others, but if you’re anxious about being around others or you isolate yourself too much, it might lead to loneliness and a worsened quality of life. Also, if you don’t interact with people now, it will make you hesitant lately.

4. CHANGES ARE NOT YOUR FOE. 

Life is a series of spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only steal the joy. Although it hurts to see things or people changing over the time. But that’s all a part of life. Accept the fact- “No matter what, Life moves on”.”

5. LEARN TO SAY “NO” 

Sometimes, of course, we say yes.  We’re delighted to help out. But saying yes just because you don’t want to look rude is anything but not delightful. 
People will take advantage of you if you end up saying yes to everything. 

6. STOP LIVING IN THE PAST

As it has been said in the Popular tv series How I met your mother ( which my younger self hasn’t watched:P)
The future is scary, but you can’t just run back to the past because its familiar. Yes, it’s tempting, but, it’s a mistake.”

7. BE HAPPY

Accept the fact that everything happens for a reason. And don’t let bad experiences steal your happiness.

Mind your language


Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow. Language is an art of communicating. It allows people to communicate with great precision. 
We learn the language that we have been listening to since birth often known as our mother tongue and It helps to bind people together and promote the positive values of a culture. Now days, People learn new languages out of curiosity. Learning a new language is like becoming another person. Its like you posses a completely new soul.

As I was born in Delhi, my native language is Hindi. But, as I took admission in a Convent School I got the opportunity to learn a new language, English , which is now close to my heart. There are many reasons that English is the only language close to my heart. First reason being My school, from where I learnt it. It reminds me of the years I spent there. The morning assembly, prayers, half Indian (foreign) principal and the teachers. The church where we used to pray before exams and all the other things. It reminds me of my English teacher who made my pronunciation better.


And now made me a Grammer nazi.😅 

Another reason is that English is an official language which is predominantly spoken around the world and it is also one of the official language of India. So one can talk to strangers easily as once I met with a tourist who was asking for direction and I was not able to understand her language. But then I asked her if she knew English and then I had a good 5 minute conversation with her.

I can now watch Hollywood movies and Tv Series which have dialogue in English and I don’t need subtitles in other language as they can sometime cause the meaning of words to be lost in the translation, and they can be a distraction or can even block the action taking place on the screen. 

Yay! popcorns are ready and I can watch my favourite American tv series How I met your mother.

And I can easily read the novels written by American, British and other English speaking authors without needing the translated copy. 

^Yea! Coffee is ready and so is Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare.

Also, there is a satisfaction that comes with English. It was rewarding the first time I understood a movie in full, or read a book completely. And helped a English speaking tourist find her way.  It is also very much fun to tell my friends what exactly the new song on the YouTube is saying. 

So, yeah English is my favourite Language.

Poverty Of India

Yesterday night , when i was coming back to my home, i saw a group of poor children sleeping on footpath. I felt terribly bad for them. Then after a few metres, i saw an old lady sleeping under the roof of bus-stand. I have seen many people like this before and their condition makes me realize that i should not cry about the things i don’t have as i have so many things like family, shelter, food , water and all the basic necessities which these poor people lack. I wonder what happens to them in winters, does they get a blanket to cover their body?? In our country, India , rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. Our government rarely take some steps to remove the poverty from the country. Today i have come up with a idea that can remove poverty slowly but effectively. 30% of Indian

WORLD EARTH DAY

Today is World Earth Day, and we all know that our Earth is in danger. And the reason is human civilisation which has destroyed the most precious thing of earth – “THE NATURE“.
The scientists today should invent the gadgets or something to minimise the destruction caused , but sadly 80% of them are busy in making money or trying to visit Mars. What is the use of these so called Planetary Missions, when you can’t save your own Planet Earth??

Global Warming is increasing day by day. Two years ago, April was not this hot in India, like it is today. Scientists and Governments just talk about the Global Warming every now and then. But, they aren’t taking any steps to stop it. I know it can’t be stopped, but we can stop it from increasing, can’t we?? Plants and tress are getting destroyed for medicines and wood. I know it is important to make medicines and using woods for development of a country, but if we cut one tree, can’t we plant two.  There are more then 7 billion people living in this world and their life is all dependent on plants, either for oxygen or for food.

I wonder, what if all 7 billion people take pledge to plant 16 trees in their lifetime, will there be any rise in global warming then??

Think about it, its our planet and we have to save it to save our lives.

 Don’t think EARTH DAY has nothing to do with you. Do learn about the history of earth day and how each person plays a part.

Sorrow & Joy are two sides of a coin…

Sorrow is an inner experience. From this experience we come to feel that life has no meaning and no purpose, that we are travelling along a road that has no goal.

Joy is also an inner experience. From this experience we come to feel that life at every moment has some special meaning, that life has joy as its goal right from the beginning. Early in the morning
