ALWAYS REMEMBER TO PUT THE GLASS DOWN.
FELT LIKE WRITING - We have become so reactive as a society that before knowing the facts we want to respond. I dont know what this race is and where it is going to take us. Noticed this only on social media in the past a few years. Our attention Span is ZERO I feel. We have to be a little more Attentive and wise with the words we put out(write, say or share). There is so much noise around and so much to feed your mind. Choose wisely. Be quick to laugh and celebrate life not quick to judge. Be quick to unlearn and learn don't consume mindlessly. Be open to love not hate. Don't just read positive quotes LIVE them in daily life. Always have a room to improve, learn, unlearn and be a student all over again. और हां , इस बात को समझिए कि हम सब एक लिमिटेड समय लेकर यहां आए है। हम आए जीने के लिए। उससे ज्यादा कुछ नहीं। तो फालतू की बातों में मत पढ़िए किसी से घृणा मत कीजिए ना ही घृणा फैलाइए । औरों की लाईफ छोड़िए देखिए कि क्या आप वो दोस्त, क्लासमेट , सह- कर्मचारी , भाई, बहन , पति, पत्नी है जैसा आप चाहते है ? आप ज़िन्दगी में जहां भी हो कभी दूसरों को देखकर उनसे तुलना करके अपनी लाईफ स्पोइल मत कीजिए । जहां है वहां रहकर ज़िन्दगी को सेलिब्रेट करना सीखिए और कीजिए । और अंत में हर किसी की लाईफ का नॉर्मल और फन की परिभाषा अलग होती है। ये बात हमेशा याद रखिए। प्यार कीजिए और प्यार करना सिखाईए 😊 हमेशा एक उत्सुक विद्यार्थी बने रहिए, नकारात्मकता को अपने ऊपर हावी मत होने दीजिए।
It is not only about UP, caste system exists very much in my Home state Himachal as well. But nodbody wants to talk about it. I had to unlearn so many things which knowingly or unknowingly society had taught me since childhood. We can't slove a problem by not talking about it or rather by ignoring it. We need to talk about it. We as a society need to accept it first that there is a problem. An issue that is always being ignored. Some feel threatened because their so called upper catse previledge will be taken away if they talk or let others talk about caste system in India. A book by Om Prakash Valmiki #joothan Shook me to the core. We never talk about such literature and people who tried to share their stories. Stories that will make you feel small and miserable because of the conditioning you had so far is far away from what it should be. There is so much to talk about caste system in India but I am also educating myself more and I feel we all should do that. #Repost @borges.andre • • • • • • A Dalit boy in Uttar Pradesh's Amroha district was allegedly shot dead by some upper caste youth after they objected to him praying at the local temple — India Today

In the of Time Social Distancing I feel more connected than ever before. A few days back Baal Manch Shimla contacted me for a live session. I had to say yes. Baal Manch is basically a platform for promoting joy of learning among school kids. It is an initiative taken back in 90s by Non profitable organisation, but later govt also adopted this method and introduced in schools. What we know as fun and learn method. Baal Manch Shimla is doing great job in encouraging younger generation to find their talents and it is also a way to release stress. I am so glad I get to be part of this initiative in some way. Kids are coordinating all these events, making posters and doing what we hardly expect them to do. Younger generation is much more wiser and Future seems brighter by seeing these Young minds doing wonders. #BaalManchShimla 😊
*Long Post Alert* Words cant define the feeling that's creeping me everyday. Heart goes out for those lakhs of people struggling because of the lockdown. Walking on the roads, from Mumbai to Bihar and from Bangalore to Uttar Pradesh. I thought, the best side of us will come out after this lockdown. Guess what? it is the worst of us that we see around. labourers (the most hard working people) are walking on the roads to go to their States (Homes) back. Why would they go ? Well they don't have the choice to work from home like you and I. They don't have money. People sitting in the car asking labourers how can you go? Well, the people asking them are the previledged ones. Labourers simply responding saying Aapko Nahi Samajh Ayega Lekin hume to jana hai (You won't get it but we have to go and we are going home). I read The Builders are making them stay because then who is gonna make huge buildings for them. They will earn millions from that right ? but i did'nt read The Buidders Feeding the labourers, making sure they have enough money during lockdown. Sad but bitter truth - We are becoming greedy and Emotionless (May be less human) . This is going to lead us to a dark place. Looking at these huge buidlings made by the hard working labourers with their blood and sweat. I am thinking what kind of society are we building now? Why so much greed and selfishness ? Why ? P.S- The only people who are and will suffer the most because of this pandemic are the ones who built the houses we sleep- in peacefully. We sleep without worrying about the food or train crossing over our bodies. So, what about them ? Well, who cares?
