Send me the link :-)


Remembering the initial days of blogging, I remember one of the most common excuses given by most of my friends was , “Send me the link of your blog post I will see it… ” However, this has not yet changed and remains intact meaning that if I ask them to look in to my blog post, the same excuse comes. 🙂 For more than six years I came across this excuse. If you will ask whether they really read your post, the answer will most of the time, “Arey, I forgot. Please send me the link again.”  Have you been through such response? 😛

Interestingly, one person told me to send link to all my blog posts. I responded in saying that I will send you my blog link where you can read all the posts (obviously my blog will contain all the posts… 😛 ). But he kept on insisting to send all the links separately so that he will read when he is free and is in relaxed mood. I was wondering what to respond.  I thought there are more than 100 posts, meaning I need to send 100 links to him. LOl… 😛  Obviously these memories make me laugh and I really enjoy facing them. 😛 What about you all? Did you come across such incidents? Do share your experience which will make me and others to laugh more. Hahaha… 😛

What is good and bad ?


There are times when we are not able to distinguish between the good and the bad. How do we come to a conclusion whether this is good or that is bad ? Is there a parameter for the same ? Well… this is an open debate and will remain as everyone has its own way to distinguish between the two. One thing can be good for someone and the same can be bad for others. This happens for sure. This article discusses about the goodness and badness.

In the fast moving world, we often come to circumstances where we are  not in a condition to come to a conclusion. A dilemma surrounds us. How do we call something is good ? If somebody helps you in trying condition, is that good ? When you are forced to do what you don’t want to do, is that good ? The normal answer is yes and no respectively.  There is also a time when we take some startling decisions hoping to have good impact in future but reverse happens. Life is full of twists and turns. Every individual has its own way to distinguish between the two.

Let me give some practical examples. Suppose a boy and a girl are in love with each other. The girl suddenly thinks that he is not a perfect match for her and decides to call an end to the relationship. When the boy comes to know the same he will be in shock for sometime for sure. Boy will definitely have  a kind of negativity and darkness at that time and in general he will say the girl did very bad to me. Ladki ne mere sath bahut ganda kiya… bla, bla etc… 😦  The reverse can also happen.  The thing is the boy thinks that the girl had done bad to him and at the same time the girl will think its good that I decided to dump him…. Now have a look at a different perspective. Suppose there are two friends who are having good friendship for a long time. First one has never been in bad doings and the second had done some bad in the past but not to his friend.  Both are having equal trust on each other. Suddenly there is a U turn taken by the second one due to greed or some other reason and he did something to his best friend which the later had never expected which ultimately lands his friend in no mans land. Now with this kind of betrayal the one who had never done bad in his life seems to have totally gone out of his goodness. He starts doing things which is totally out of his domain and range indulging in nuisance activities and ultimately harming others as well. Here betrayal made a good man finally coming in to a bad man now.  Is it right to become bad from good ?

The question what is good and what is bad has no answer in general. This is also a question which was running in my mind for many years. So I thought of raising this uncommon question in the form of this article. At the end, I would like to share one of the quotes of one of the greatest son of India, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati  who in this quote had given a strong message which makes this quote one of my favorite.

When bad does not leave their badness why does the good leave there goodness.

            – Maharshi Dayand Saraswati 

 

So what according to you is good and bad ? Share your views… 🙂

* Mention the person who tagged you.
* Answer the questions in full.
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end.

Here are the questions and their answers:

How did you get into blogging?  

I wrote my first poem which was in Hindi when I was in class IX and again a Hindi poem in class X but unfortunately I lost both of the poem which I was unable to preserve. Due to that anger I stopped writing for two years. 🙂 But there was always a voice coming from inside to write. So I started writing again when I entered college for persuading engineering and initially I wrote in notes on facebook for few months and was getting reviews there. I created my blog in February 2011 from one of my friend suggestion without knowing what a blog is. I posted my first post in April. 😦  My  Hello World post which is default is still active and have preserved it yet and will be preserved in future too. 🙂  I was not posting frequently and there have been big gaps of 6 months also but slowly and slowly I learnt what is blogging and how to use it and  I am here and just want to continue this journey as much as  I can. 🙂

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

I don’t consider myself in a position to give advice to novice blogger’s as I am not a veteran. I am a novice and still in learning phase, just learning from many prominent bloggers.

What would be your dream campaign?

Spreading awareness regarding your  own inner strength which people usually fail to recognise.

Do you have a plan for your blog?

I don’t have any specific plan as of now. Just wanted to keep going and share among you all the wonderful and respected bloggers.

What do you think about rankings?

I think every literary piece is having something special in it. Writing is a creativity and every literary piece is unique and has something to offer.

FEW QUOTES – IX


Quotations are very powerful and strong way to convey big and deep things in few lines. So here sharing few of my quotations which I hope will be liked by you. Writing quotations always gives me pleasure as it one of the few things which doesn’t take much time to write and read and at the same time has the capability to convey strong messages. Here I am sharing my 9th post of FEW QUOTES… series. Do read and share what is your views on these quotes of mine. 🙂

  • The most obscene thing mankind can do in his/her life is to break the trust. Its like a foul substance in the glass of clear water which makes water unsuitable to drink.                                                                                                              
  • Its easy to commit the mistakes but it requires courage to rectify the same.
  •  There are two types of knowledge – bookish knowledge and behavioural knowledge. Its difficult to find both at the same time. Having the combination of both makes one unique, different and perfect.
