We have an irony. Jug Surairya in TOI has rightly said that the moment we start teaching, we stop learning. When we were in colleges, we used to think that we will be doing the unthinkable and we will be conquering the impossible. But after getting our jobs, we tend to vegetate and in a sense stop living our dreams. It becomes same bloody monotonous routine, and we hardly find time for introspection and inner overhauling. We stop chasing our goals. That is a vicious circle which actually drains all our ideological aspirations and means to an end actually becomes end itself.
But there are few who keeps thirst for knowledge (or their dreams) alive and thus contribute not only to society, but to themselves also. They don’t let circumstances or sluggishness to overpower their ambitions. Rather tough time makes them even tougher. So, if you have penchant for something and you make efforts for that, then it is certain that you are going to become master of that field and ultimately going to find contentment in that, which is and should be the ultimate goal of any individual in this earthly life.

I like the idea of Gandhigiri, as shown in movie...Lage Raho Munna bhai. During national struggle we had seen that 'Doves' or peace loving people agitated in a style of which even britishers didn't has any answer. it was such a beautiful yet effective weapon that world is looking it as one of greatest tool to discover peace and tranquility. But in this modern era we have also seen people, nation, idealogies and groups who does not understand the language of love. Here even Gandism may fail. So here we need reciprocal altruism(I read of this in TOI in Gurcharan Das's article). Recciprocal altruism is a middle path between the philosophy of Hawks(Extremists) and Doves. Its like treating not only good but evil with compassion and genuity, but then if person acts against, then reciprocate it with full force. I think terrorists organizations and nations who harbour and encourages terrorisom need to be reciprocated like this. Ready to fail yourself unless the opponent is playing within rules, but strike hard when he deserves so and then succeed with all honour and respect.

I fear from failure and therefore alwyas takes one step backward whenever its about taking to new ventures. Pathetic........if I ever think like this, because it actually stops me to grow. If I am too scared of failure, then I will always be away from the success. Mahatama Gandhi's biggest strenght was to try new things and then stick to his covictions. He also failed.....rather failed many times. But every failure give him new insights and give him a sort of experience which otherwise he couldn's have gained. That means great men are no different...They all are same....but the thing which makes them different is their dedication and curiosity to learn new things. Bottom line remains the same.....keep on trying, don't get discouraged from failure and then one day, in this process you will find your calling which will lead you to awaited destination.

That change is possible and extraordinary could happen; all you need is perseverance of efforts. You will fall, you will lose, but you have courage to learn from these, then nothing could actually stops you from becoming a winner. Igniting to your curiosity and then constantly thinking for your goal will certainly make destiny works for you. The theme is clear, crystal clear that change will happen and will make life beautiful; all you need is to listen to your heart and create a wonderful balance between your body, mind and soul.
