How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry. I will expl

Why do some people end up doing nothing?

From the beginning, they have a tendency to not settle for less. They prefer sitting idle to working somewhere. In the pursuit of not settling for less, they end up settling for nothing. Sometimes they succeed too if they don't emotionally break down in the process. They consider it futile to work 9 to 5 for someone who pays a meager salary in return.

The lift may or may not get repaired within a stipulated period. What would you do?

Most of us will say that the guy loves the girl unconditionally and his love is immaculate. But if you carefully look at the reply of the boy, he deems to love her based on a condition, that is, she is extremely charismatic. Love nowadays is not a complex word/thing - you see a girl or a boy from a distance and you fall in love. But according to me, love is not just a bodily attraction. It’s way way more than that. I won’t join hands with someone who is just physically attractive or dresses nicely. Do you happen to like everybody you meet? No, right. And what forms the basis of your liking? Well, you look for a certain set of qualities in the other person and if you happen to find such a set, you start admiring that person. You make him/her your go-to companio
