Darkness is what many of us are afraid of. We are used to live in an environment full of brightness. That is the Sun. Almost 12 hours of the day are bright. The other hours are known as darkness. Because we are afraid to live in dark we have invented artificial lighting’s to brighten our lives. Due to this we can go all 24 hours in brightness.
The only time when we are with darkness is when we are in sleep. We are not working then. It’s the rest time. So in other words we are sleeping in darkness. Somewhere inside us there is a fear while we sleep. The cause is once again the darkness. Irrelevant of any other things that trouble your life, darkness is what you are afraid of most.
What is the main source of light? Sun in our case. It is a star of course. (Well I am not teaching you Physics or part of Geography. I am not good at teaching someone.) In 12 hours of our life we see one star that lightens up the world. Actually we cannot look at that star with naked eye. It is too bright and our eyes cannot handle it.
Now when it is dark, There is no Sun. Go to your terrace or get out of the house and look up in the sky. What you see? Stars. Many of them. Zillions of them. What we miss is this. We like the light, the bright side which is when we are unable to see the one star above us and we don’t like darkness, which shows us many stars at once.
Our life is brightened up with moments of success, joy, happiness and it darkens up when we fail or when we are sad. But actually we are missing a lot of opportunities that we cannot see while there is light. We cannot see the stars we can reach to. The unnecessary fear of dark entities make us fallback. Instead of watching the stars in the darkness we close our eyes and wait till it’s bright. We don’t even bother to think of question like “What if we open our eyes in darkness?” We hibernate and when we are out of hibernation we found ourselves weaker than what we were.
Don’t fear of dark. Face it. The next time you are in dark just remember “When it’s dark enough you can see the stars.”
Till it’s dark…
This question often stands in front of me. He looks at me. I look at him. He laughs and goes away only to come back again and repeat the process. This question is What is the price of Happyness? This is not a businessman asking the question. It’s common man(with uncommon thinking) for whom money is last priority. Evey time I think I found answer it proves to be wrong. It’s something different.
That was just another day. I was waiting for bus. Of course at bus stop. With earphones plugged into my ear, I was listening to some love song(Love was in the air). At that very moment I heard someone crying. She was a cute little girl crying for god only knows reason. She was disturbing me. Not for what I was listening to but I could not see her crying. Her mother(I guess) was trying to make her quiet. Failure. I started checking my pockets. Usually I keep a toffee as a sleep killer. I found two of them. I gave those toffees to that little girl. Silence… She looked at me.. Silence continues..And she smiles. Her mother also smiled. And deep within I had a great feeling of making someone laugh. So the price of Happyness is just two toffees?
Then a couple of days back this happened. There was concrete for slab. This usually lasts long. No time limits. There are labors who work all day to get things done. They don’t have good clothes. Always smell bad. No good place to sleep. They eat a lot in spite of all these. It was 7pm and nothing stopping concrete. A small break for labors. One guy from contractors side brings them Mirchi-Pav. Mirchi is chillies cooked in gram-flour and Pav is bread. All rush towards this guy. You should see them smiling, laughing, cheering. Nothing like that. So the price of Happyness is just a Mirchi-Pav?
There is not a single person in this world who knows the price of Happyness. Well, I don’t know all the peoples in this world . But it’s a guess which is sure to work. Above incidents always try to tell me that Happyness doesn’t cost much but the moment you are happy is Priceless. The next time when this question comes to me I’ll answer him..You are just another variable entity.
Till you find Happyness in Mirchi-Pav…
P.S:- Happyness is not mispelled.
I laugh. You laugh. We laugh. And probably everybody laughs. This is because most of us love to laugh. We like to enjoy. We love happiness. Add to this all good things(and may be bad things) that put a smile on your face. Just ask one question to yourself. Do you think over the humor? This is tricky question and may sound foolish. Give a try and ask this question. Very few will return with “Yes”.
There is humor which makes you think. I like that type of humor. The one which makes you laugh for some seconds and then makes you think for minutes. The best example of such humor is the cartoon that comes in everyday newspaper. There is always some thought behind that cartoon and it makes you think for a while apart from making you laugh.
