I wanna be a kid again

I was reading about this entrepreneur whose partner was ten years younger to him. Although there is one obvious age difference but more precise differentiation is in the way they think. What impresses me is that the older one had an attitude to ask for business solution to the younger one without putting the curtain of ego. That helped him to think with a new perspective.
With experience, usually what happens is, we try to bind ourselves. Restrict to think beyond the possibilities of what our past has taught us. Thus the basic requirement of, being creative and innovative in problem solving, is lost.

This very experience that we are all proud of becomes the outcome of our fears. A child that has seen fire for the first time, may feel like touching it. But as soon as it burns its hand, the fearsome experience takes the form of lesson 'not to be repeated'

There is a folk tale where the villagers are worried due to delayed rains in the season. So everyone decides to visit a temple at the hill and pray god for rains. Except everyone a little girl comes along with an umbrella. This is not just a power of belief but also how differently a child may think. Without boundaries!

I wanna be a child again to have that innocent creativity and positivism to all the situations in my life.

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!)

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 &…

 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…
