Give vent to Your Feelings

What do you feel when you see a soldier? Sense of security and pride. If you notice your teacher shopping in market, you first reaction as teenager would be to change the route and if he/she shows up, then greet respectfully. These are general profiles. What are general impression you have about people around when you do not know anything about them? A bespectacled girl seems intelligent and geeky. You feel need to help elderly or blind person cross street because they seem vulnerable.

Every field has an associated attitude. You cannot find a person not patriotic being an army man for long, if he gets selected somehow. Similarly, an insensitive person cannot be a social worker. These feelings are thus, important part of our life. They make us, define us.

This topic came up because nowadays, people are seeking holistic approaches such as meditation, out-of-box jobs, vacations to get rid of tension (mental and physical both). They are actually running away from the world. I do not say that gurus, especially spiritual gurus are being impractical but true guru will help you stay in the world, help fight corruption and inefficiency, impart training to inspire, stay motivated, and solve problems.

These gurus appear very balanced due to their simple yet powerful thinking. These usually happen due to being in connection with holistic world, holistic teachings, and oneself. There is strange aura about them when you see them and you think for a while to be like them. This is characteristic of their personality and cannot be of everyone else.

Being in materialistic world, it is important to feel happy, sad, angry, disgusted, fearsome, etc. You cannot exist a day without your feelings unless otherwise you are a monk. A child is taught about fire, electricity, water, wind, insects and other hazards sometimes by making them feel little pain or putting an example before them and acting like crying or showing being sick. Your body responds to hazards only because you know they are dangerous to you.

If you are scared that being tense about a problem gives you health problems then the solution is not turning back from the world. Face it. There are many ways to solve problems. First and most basic is by talking and sharing your problem with others and especially to those around the same situation. If it is richness or inundated fame that is making your back off, then indulge in some social work. 

Seek help from medical counselors to get out of situation but stop feeling negative about life. Religious places provide detox from life misery and refresh a person to accept it with more energy and faith. It is good to go there once a while but stop moaning every once in a while when challenges surface.

Practice some discipline and understanding towards life and you will see you can handle infamous remarks on your work and other incidents. Things cannot go far because even the professional environment has ethics that resemble with human virtues. Feel your best and give others a reason to smile. You might even feel light in your heart listening to complaining boss when you know certainly that you can solve the matter within reasonable time frame.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
