Friendship : A Beautiful Relationship !!!!

Hello Friends,

On this friendship day, I would like to dedicate this article to all my friends.

What is a Friend?

“Friend is someone who understands you, and
able to bring a smile on your Face,
no matter how bad the situation is.”

What is Friendship?

“A relation which demands nothing, but believe in
giving so much : Love, Care, Fun, Support and a lot
which can’t be expressed in words.”

Who is your “True Friend”?

“When rest of the world walks out, the one who walks
in and stands with you in every Good and Bad.
Don’t loose that friend ever.”

Why everyone should have at least a Friend?

People today, in all this new world technology and thinking have lost sight of
what a true friendship is. No way do friends have to be exactly the same,
I mean come on friends do have similarities but they also have their differences.
The key to opening up the world of friendship is not just to focus on the similarities
but to accept each others faults because true friends do not judge each other.

Friends love unconditionally”. They do have their little angry moments from time to time
but at the end of the day all is forgiven and forgotten.
Why let something that happened in the past ruin
what great friendship you could have together in the future?

You know you have a friend for life
Whenever something bad happened to you they’d be there for you,
no questions asked. When you can look at them when something is wrong and
they know it just by their eyes and all they have to do is offer a hug and
you feel a thousand times better. ūüôā

At last, Few lines dedicated to all my dear friends

“Thanks for always listening to me, supporting me, and
encouraging me. You all are Awesome and Unforgettable.”

In India, Is Education Playing a vital Role – Are we really Educated???

Hello Friends,

Now-a-Days you all must have observed that, Now Government is also
taking many steps in improving the literacy rate in India.

But Is Education really making a difference in our society? Are we really behaving as “Literates”?

A. In our Junior School itself, we have been taught about certain traffic rules to
– Save our and other’s life,
– Manage Traffic conveniently

Examples :

1. “Footpath should be used for walking, and roads for Driving Vehicles but are we following that?

2. Use “Zebra crossing for crossing road, vehicles should stop before Zebra crossing.

Unfortunately in many of our cities/villages we don’t have any Zebra Crossing yet,
but wherever¬†we have, we stop our vehicles after Zebra Crossing when signal is “Red” not before it.

3. Not park our vehicles in “No-parking“. But we generally search for some space where we
can park our vehicle, without having any concern that it’s a Parking Area or not.

4. We don’t follow Traffic rules at all, like breaking Traffic Signals, Not wearing seat belts,
not wearing helmets, Talking on Mobile phones while driving, Wrong side over take and so many things.

And still we say that we are “Literates”.

B. From last year onwards, Mr. Narendra Modi started “Cleanliness Campaign“.
In our schools also, we must have taught that we should segregate waste.
I have seen many places where Dustbins are kept with Tag as “Dry waste”
and “Wet Waste”, but what we “Educated Persons” doing, without reading or
even after reading also, we throw wet waste in dry dustbin and vice versa.

At some places, segregating waste is compulsory, otherwise Fine will be charged.
So we did segregation, but we don’t want to follow this practice, if it is not compulsory
or no fine will be charged.

C. We have so many Laws against “Child Labor” from mid 90s, but we hardly listen that
someone is punished for violating “child Labor” laws.

We must have seen many Children working for “Highly Educated” society.

Conclusion :

Just reading books and getting good marks by writing correct answers in exams wouldn’t be
suffice. We should not show our degree to prove that we are literates, our actions should show that.

Requesting you all to follow what we have learned.
Rules are meant to “Follow” not to “Break”.

Follow Rules and ask others also to do the same, instead
looking someone breaking the “rules” and starting the same.

Why We Teach : “Respect Elders”, Why Not “Younger”?

Hello Friends,

In our childhood only, our Parents taught us that¬†we should give “Respect to our Elders”.¬†It is a good thing to give respect to elders.

Nothing against this thought.

But Is there any Rule or Law which says that we will be punished,
If we will give Respect to our “Younger”?

Let me give you few instances:

1. One day I was walking with my friend around the park, She saw her younger brother smoking with his friends. She went there and started shouting at him and she slapped him.

Next day also we were walking and she saw her Father “Smoking”.¬†She ignored and left from there.
Then I asked her : “Why you reacted differently with same situation”?

She said : “I cannot say anything to him. He is my Father, He is elder to me”.
I said : “Fine”, I can understand you cannot shout at your Father.

But, Who gave you “Right” to Shout/Raise your Hand, at your brother in front of his friends?

2. On weekend, I visited one of my friend’s place.¬†My Friend’s husband was in headache that day.
Her mother-in-law¬†was listening music in high volume,¬†then he came out of his room¬†and asked politely to his Mom :¬†“Mom I am having Headache, Can you please slow down the volume” ?¬†and again he went inside the room.¬†Me and my friend was laughing on some joke (Not so loudly, but i think our voice reached him),¬†He came out in Anger and started shouting at my friend saying,¬†“Don’t you know, I am having headache, why you are laughing so loudly“?

I asked him, “Why are you shouting at her”, before two minutes you were very¬†polite with your Mom. As your “Wife” is younger to you, Does it mean you can shout at her?

Request to all my friends : 

Do respect everyone in your life!
Give Respect to Elder to Get Love, Give Respect to Younger to get Respect back“.

Don’t misbehave with anyone, only because he/she is younger to you.

In short : “Give Respect, To Get It”!
