Either on the chest of the teacher or outside the field

“You need to make it to 30 plus to avail the discount”

And I ordered 30 copies hoping for a discount…I overlooked it to be 30 or more as the limit for discount….

………………..

“The venue is at Kottakkal Ayurveda college”

And she thought it to be Kottakal Aryavydyasala and reached at wrong place. Another instance of oversight or familiarity blindness

………………..

“Approximately 2 liters of water collected since yesterday morning”

And on hearing the same, he thought it to be since today morning, as it was already feeded into his brain

…………………..

With very few people only I have found that attitude to decode exactly what is heard or read. Many a times most people assume things in their favor or in the common way or according to what’s feeded in their brain already. Sometimes they don’t have a second thought at all to think it differently, just assume it’s like that only.

My decoding lies in a 50-50 margin ;). With each instance, I hope to improve next time though instances only keep on repeating. And sometimes it decodes the most common thing in the most strange way and thus making myself weird. The poor brain is dabbling in extremes “ Onnukil Aashante nenjath, allenkil Kalarikku purath.” ( Its a Malayalam proverb literally meaning “Throwing oneself either onto the chest of the teacher or outside the arena”)

The power of questioning

All the symbols were living happily in their joint happily. They were all doing their jobs peacefully without creating nay noise. And it was a world of monotonicity in a way. No curiosity, no challenges and no questions too.  But the people [symbols] never realized it as they never know the other world of curiosity. So one day a ? (question mark) was pushed out of heaven[or was it from hell] to the joint family of symbols.

Ahh… the miracle started from that moment. People started to question things.. new discoveries were made..the life changed totally..

Questioning is always an effective tool. In fact a question can catch the attention of even a wandering mind completely as our brain always works in the direction of a question it heard.

And yes, “asking a question is a good way to catch your crush’s attention too”

Do you take advantage of every situation?

Both of them were confused.

One asked “Which one should we opt?” The other replied “Actually I wish to learn both. Learning a new thing is always challenging. But I am ready to accept the challenge and move on”

The first girl “But we don’t have a chance to opt both, we can take only one of them. It’s difficult to identify the better one”

The second girl was still in her thoughts on learning both.

Then one of their favourite teacher appeared on their way. Both of them greeted her and had some casual talks. The first girl used the chance to share their confusion with her. And the teacher could add some new perspectives to their problem and obviously it helped the girls. And finally they could come up with a solution for their problem.


In fact in different ways, we are all surrounded with tons of information. But rarely do we pay attention to those signals around us or rarely we collect something out of it. Here the information appeared in the form of teacher and the first girl could use it to her advantage.

The second girl was not completely unobservant about the world around her. But the point is she couldn’t take advantage of the situation.


So are you able to take advantage of every situation whenever possible?

I took a day of me

You always prioritise things in your life.

You are well organized to manage your daily routine.

You have a clear cut plan to achieve your long term targets.

Everything is well scheduled in your time planner.

Now, let me just ask “ Do you have a time for your soul, do you have that ‘me-time’ planned, if you can schedule even for the smallest thing in your life, why is there no planned time for your own self?

Don’t be guilty of the time spend in solitude. It’s always worth as it can cherish your inner soul and thereby spreading the warmth of energy all around you. So give yourself permission to have a little me-time.

Me- time doesn’t necessarily mean being alone. Do whatever makes your soul energised even if it is for a few minutes as posted in waves

He is doing, so I too?

“When people are running, you should run in the middle”

It’s a proverb actually meaning ‘one must strive to assimilate to the norm’.

Maybe it’s another prejudice wall built in the minds of people asking to change yourself when everyone around you is changing. And people easily fall in to that just to avoid that “awkward” state of being odd.

But,

Why do you need to go with the normal flow? You are living in your priorities and comfort. Of course, sometimes your priorities may overrule your comfort. But as long as you are only setting up your priorities and defining your comfort, why should you run in the middle of the crowd and make yourself less creative?

Okay, if you still wish to run in the middle ( as you are afraid of oddness or uniqueness) while people around you are running, better not to let your feet run faster than your shoes and make yourself fall.

Rest mode is on

“Oh finally it’s over. It’s time to enjoy.. I am free now…I am gonna watch a few movies, then sleep, then what.. Okay, an outing….”

The wishes go on..

We often fall into a false state of mind after the mission accomplishment. The non-ending relaxed mode.

The mission could be an exam, an interview or a tedious project or anything demanded one’s hard work.

Yes, Room for rest is very much important. But usually we have a tendency to fall into the non-ending rest mode. There needs to be an end for this rest mode to enter into the work mode.

Normally one will be having a well set plan till the last day of the mission. But what about after that?

Planning is essential not only for implementation, but also for sustenance. So don’t just stop planning once the work is over. Better to plan not only for ‘mission hours’ but also for ‘after mission hours’. Or plan at least on the very first day of the rest mode. Otherwise days are going to be out of control and very lately only one could realize how he/she wasted the days.

Also, don’t get too caught up in the plan making oneself stressed and ruining a good vacation. Sit back and take a deep breath if things aren’t going as planned. After all it’s all about making oneself refreshed after a heavy work.

So what’s your plan for the holidays, vacation..? Don’t let someone else drive you, making you lazy. Never make yourself in a sorry state to your own mind after the rest period.

Lifeless soul, how sad!

He never cared what is happening around him. Never he looked over shoulders. Never he was seen indulged in loose talks. What to say more, rarely he smiled too….he was not even found showing any gesture of social interactions.

“What a life less soul , he is”, his colleagues pitied him.

“Seems one of his screws is loosely connected”, people sympathized. “How can he be a human without any blah blah chats in life”

But he was least bothered on all such sympathies and gossips

He thought, “Silly people, what do they know about me? Simply wasting their life in all those gossips. When will they understand the worth of what they are losing? Just living if the wind is favourable in their path, spending time peeping over the window of their neighbors. Never you people will understand what I am thinking. So start living, stop cursing me and laughing at me”

After thought: Sometimes  we feel pity for othes thinking about their poor life conditions or unhappiness in life or anything like that. But actually we are fooled in a way. Those people understand everything including our thoughts. And in fact they are feeling pity for us..how ironic!
