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

The Kind Of Person You Are

Your mouth says a lot about the kind of person you are. If you prefer speaking less, people will say that you are an introvert or you possess the qualities of a reticent/taciturn. Some may say that you are a wise/very sagacious person and you conserve your energy for more important issues. If you like shooting from the hip, people will say that you are a babbler. The way you speak and the words you say can have a lot of impact on people. They may talk to you again or they may not. In today's society, people prefer talking to those who keep their problems aside or to themselves and greet you with a smiley face. Nobody would listen to your problems if they don't like discussing theirs coz that will only make the situation worse. People go out of their homes to dump all their negativity and start afresh. Don't be a bin or perceive the other person as a bin. In simple words, don't let others dump their negativity on you and vice versa. What better it can get if we keep on d

Win hearts and Gain success with the Right Attitude

     Attitude is a windowpane with which you see the outer world. If that windowpane is clean, everything will appear clear to you. Problems will not stay on that glass for long. You will see everything with a positive outlook. But if it is dirty, everything will appear blurry to you. The dirt will become your problems, which will eventually land you in deep water. It will breed a sense of negativity in you that will last forever until you you wipe off your windowpane and remove the dirt. Someone with a positive attitude will seize every opportunity as it comes whereas someone with a negative attitude will miss out on opportunities. To exemplify, if a glass half-filled with water is kept in front of a person having a positive mindset, he will say it's half full and it will be enough to quench his thirst whereas if it is kept in front of someone having a totally opposite mindset, he will start complaining. It will appear half empty to him. He will not drink it until it's full a

Being an Optimist

    Every one of us has friends, right? Of course, we do. There’s this friend of mine who’s doing something worth eulogizing. Her name is Richa. What is the first thing that we do when we see a stray dog approaching our way? Do we feed him? Certainly Not. Do we hug him and shelter him from scorching heat/chilling cold? We don’t do that, right? We would shoo him away by tossing a stone in his vicinity or by pelting him with stones. But that’s not how she lives by. She is modest and humble in every aspect. She is an animal lover and is currently looking after the dogs of her locality by providing them food, clothes, and shelter. One day I was conversing with her and upon being asked what was her ultimate goal in life, she replied, “I want to open an NGO for animals, where they could be fed and taken care of but due to lack of funds I want to secure myself a job first. My only and only dream is to help animals.” I was so pleased to hear that and wished her luck on her journey. She told m
