Whatever we do and whatever we don’t, It’s our decisions which paint the picture of our future. Decisions are often very difficult. There are times when you are unable to decide. There are times when you have to take a quick decision. No time to think and there is no situation like “unable to decide“. In such situation, humans have mysterious and spontaneous reactions to the situation. We call it our instinct. Someone inside you (Not in your clothes) guides you to mark a way ahead. Your role is to listen to this “Someone” inside.
Very often we listen to what others say. Parents excluded because hardly any child listen to their parents. If you do, then your parents are lucky. So the “others” include your friends mostly who themselves are in a situation where they cannot take any decision. But they influence you to take yours. The results of this…. No guessing needed.
Why don’t you listen to the inner self? The instincts which always guide you to a safe path for the journey. Take example of childrens. While studying, they know what they are capable of. But if the parents are Lawyers, Doctors, Engineers then often they want their childrens to be the same. They don’t give a chance to their child to express himself. You don’t listen to them, but you are forced to. As I said earlier we have instincts which guide us. We don’t need anyone else to decide about us. Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.
It’s your life, It’s your destiny and not theirs. This doesn’t mean that ignore everyone else and do whatever you want. Listen to them but don’t let your decision fluctuate as you get advice one after another. The final decision should be yours and it should be influenced by your instinct.
Remember, Your mind knows only some things. Your inner voice, your instinct, knows everything. If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will always lead you down the right path.
By my previous post you know that I have plenty of free time. So I thought of using this time for good. Using this time to explore some places where I haven’t been and always wanted to go. I chose to visit Bangalore, The IT city. Since I am much interested in that field and also heard a lot about the beauty of Bangalore.
There are lots of places to visit in Bangalore. So I created a list of places of my interest and the places which I’ll be visitng this time.
- Lalbagh Gardens : One of India’s most beautiful botanical gardens. It was laid out by Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan in the 18th century.
- Cubbon Park : This beautiful park, which spreads over 300 acres in the heart of the city, serves as the lung space of the evergrowing Banglore city. Designed by Lt. General Sir Mark Cubbon, in 1864, is dotted with beautiful statues, flowering trees, fountains and a library its midst.
- Aquarium : A variety of exotic fishes are the attraction in this diamond shaped Aquarium, which is at the enterance of the Cubbon Park.
- Dodda Basavanna Temple : The gigantic image of the celestial bull, Nandi, which stands at 4.57 meters. in height, is a classic example of Dravidian architecture.
- Dodda Ganapathi Temple : Since I have a lot of faith in Lord Ganesha this is must for me. A huge monolithic statue of Gapnapati, which attracts thousands of devotees every day. One of the oldest temples of Bangalore.
- Musical Fountain : Another attraction opposite the planetarium is the musical fountain and its dancing waters. The Bangalore Palace: Modeled after the Windsor Palace, this beautiful granite palace was built by the Wodeyars, the erstwhile rulers of Mysore.
Now that I made the plan, I thought of searching for Hotels in Bangalore. At this point I stumbled upon Accor Hotels City Super Sale. I am damn lucky that they have a sale going on. Travellers will be able to take advantage of savings of up to 60% when they book on-line between 23 – 29 June, for stays between July 10 and September 30, 2009. You can select Hotels from 27 cities across 10 conutries. I have selected Mercure Homestead Residences. So I got what I wanted. Now time to pack my bags. 🙂
Honesty is the best policy. Remember this quote? When I was in my school, back in fifth standard I was thought this. It’s not just me but the whole class. Some followed this way and others didn’t. I am among the ones who followed the honest path. Those who are honest by now know that it’s very difficult to be honest. For me it’s creating not just problems but troubles.
I see peoples choosing the “other path” for the sake of success. And success for them is merely measured in terms of the green color. The more they have it the more successful they are. The “other path” you take may seem smooth at start but as you proceed it will get difficult. This is very opposite to the honest path.
When you work on honest path you get troubles and admirers too. This comes from my job experience. I worked hard. Everyday I had sweat bath. I lost my sleep. I lost my interests. I was distanced from my friends. All for the sake of this job. I kept telling myself.. “Just for another few days and things will get easy.” When that time came, I was accused of taking bribe.
This was the first time in my life someone said like this to me. I couldn’t stand it. I decided to quit the job. To my goodness, I got a suspension before quitting the job. I should have quit at the moment I was accused. Though I was given an option to work on another site by my employer, I didn’t. I lost my faith and trust in him.
Later on I found out that he recruited three freshers for the salary he used to pay me. Three for the price of one?? I was happy with my decision then. He is not the person whom you can trust. He doesn’t want to build a team but wants workers whom he can use and throw. He wants peoples who can dance the way he wants. I am surely not one of such.
Though happy with my decision, I felt very bad on losing the job. This was my best performance ever throughout my career. I wanted to work more here and learn more. It was not written in my faith. Sometimes I get a question, Is it worth working hard? The next moment the question disappears with answer “it is”. I look back and see myself working hard in tough conditions in a hope for better tomorrow. I end up jobless and being called as workaholic fool.
Good things to take were the good peoples who worked around me. I got many admirers who appreciated my work. I loved working with these people who worked hard. I wish to work with them again. With that hope I look forward…Who knows!!! Something great is waiting for me as I already have tasted goodness. 🙂
