People write diaries. Their diaries describe their personality. I write on my blog. It describes me way too well. :D
My writing takes me places my mind never wanted to go
Everyone writes. From the ink of their thoughts, by the pen of their mind on the page of their face. Everyone writes.I love to write. It is a passion; a compulsion; something that gives me an avenue to express myself. I write when I am happy; when I am sad or when an issue touches my heart. I find inspiration to write in every aspect of life.
This blog is dedicated to anything and everything that fills my thoughts and occupies cranial space

Life is not meant to be taken seriously


Dear Friends,
Yesterday I found a very interesting speech given by the famous writer Chetan Bhagat at the Symbiosis.
Have a look-
Don't just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life.I use the word balanced before successful, Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.
There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your break-up.
There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.
"Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth.
If the marble falls, there is no point coming first.. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble.
Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.
One thing about nurturing the spark - don't take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here.We are like a prepaid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up?
It's ok, bunk a few classes, scoring low in couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love, little fights with your spouse.
We are people, not programmed devices.
"Don't be serious, be sincere."
God gave me nothing i wanted, He gave me everything I needed.

Thanks
