A short story

It was a very busy office. The sound of typewriters and printers filled with the murmuring of a huge 100 people staff on the 5th floor. A new joinnee in the finance department was excited about his work, it was his first day and he had the chance to meet the CEO.
During his interviews he had known from his manager that the company ideology is personally prepared by the CEO himself. He had already read a lot about him. He wondered how lucky he must be! A man in his 50s, who was as rich as Croesus, was once a school dropout and owned a company of employees who are far more learned in terms of academics.

His heart pounced and the beats were faster as he reached the 11th floor.. the CEO's cabin. All he had to get is a signature on the cheque. In one corner in front of a huge desk sat the CEO's PA. A beautiful young girl dressed in a pink salwar kameez. She looked at him and smiled, "how may I help you?". He asked her if he could meet him, "I need his signature, I won't take long" he said it quickly. The girl confirmed it on the phone and asked him to proceed.

There he was seated in a chair or you may say a throne. He was talking over the phone and was interrupted by his presence so he asked "yes, young man.. show me the papers!" After a few glance the CEO signed it. But whats this.. there was some mismatch in the signature. The trainee was alarmed! How do I tell him that the sign is incorrect! It was only his first day.. what impact will he have on his seniors! He was reluctant but didn't have the courage to move out. "Whats it!" the CEO barged in. "S..s..sir! the sign! Its..." "You think it doesn't match?" "uh.. yes" "Don't worry young man! The signature has to do nothing much to get the papers pass.. Its my destiny that will do the needful."

He silently moved out. After few days he saw a confirmation on his email list that the paper work is done, he was amazed. He wondered if destiny seem to be more powerful than any other thing!

Being Critical and Comparative about my ride

I don't want to sound too critical.. But am just wondering if any1 out there in city of Mumbai, face the menace of this black rushing cockroach... the auto rickshaw. (Spare me if I did!)
No doubt, its the quickest was to reach in the nick of the time to your office..your home..a function.. when there is no public transport! The problem is.. there are more issues to travelling by an auto then there are advantages!
First of all, its next to impossible to get an empty auto in the city of mumbai and if you still manage to plead a driver with your innocent looks you should think thats an angel hailed from heaven on a god-forbid road.

Kshamapna: Forgiveness

The 8days Jain festival called "Paryushan" has a very thoughtful message to give. It inspires you to forgive and forget the past grievances. "Michhami Dukkadam" is what you tell everyone, not only humans but every single soul in the universe. It is a prakrit phrase meaning 'to be forgiven' or 'may all evil that has been done be forgiven'.

Why do we forgive some one?
1. Because he can be harmful
2. Because you owe him
3. Because of some religious reason like God says we must forgive and forget
4. Because that is what you call as dignity
There can be many reasons. Be it. But the calmness you feel after forgiving wholeheartedly is inexpressible. Like we bath daily... our soul should also be cleaned at-least on a yearly basis!

As humans we tend to have some or the other feel of grievances, hatred, enmity, jealousy etc towards others. Slowly & gradually this ill feelings give rise to feelings of revenge which ultimately is a destructive process &…

Strong Mental Health

How to be Mentally Strong?  Ami Morin is a therapist and has written the bestseller "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do". I haven't read the book but I have heard her tedx talk. Here is the guidance by Amy Morin and my notes on them.

 Believe in yourselfWe usually have certain beliefs about ourselves that are developed during our childhood. Like I am lazy to finish any task, I am an angry person, I am only good to people for certain amount of time etc. These are the statements usually by my key person, my guardian or my mom. I do feel offended when she says so but I accept it like a blind faith.If I try to say good things about myself and prove with incidences I can regain faith in my efforts, in myself. That will make me HAPPY.Daily Gratification is a good habit I will cultivate. It will surely make me feel special and thankful for what i have.Achieving my goals will elevate my faith in myself. Dont Compare yourselfWe find ourselves comparing with our friends…
