Emotions are what our life is made up of. Among all the emotions love and hatred are dominating. Let’s forget about love because it’s very difficult to love someone. The vice verse is true. It’s very easy to get angry or hate someone. You don’t believe this? Most of you do. But for those who don’t, I’ll give an example.
A typical situation. Husband and wife. It’s morning and he is in hurry. He is getting ready to go to office. Wife is busy making breakfast and his lunchbox. At the same time preparing the kids for school. The husband cannot find his hanky. His first reaction is he shouts. Get’s angry on his wife. Wife searches for hanky, finds it and gives to her husband. Husband takes it and shoots away for office.
Here a simple thing could have cooled down the things. A simple bye or hug or may be a kiss. That doesn’t cost much.(It doesn’t cost a cent!!) But anger doesn’t let us to think from heart. In fact it doesn’t allow us to think. The wind of anger blows away the lamp inside our mind. A simple solution is what needed in such situation and we cannot think of such solution.
Anger management must be hot business. When everyone is in anger, there are lot’s of potential clients. The first step of anger management is known to all. Just count from 1 to 10 or 10 to 1. And when you are very much angry, count to 100. Another thing you should know is that anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind. It’s better you carve this in your mind when you are not angry. Anger makes us strong, but that strength doesn’t last long.
So calm yourself and don’t get angry. Anger will not solve any problem but will lead to some more.
Till you are not angry…
Time is the most precious thing in today’s world. This time gets more important to those who work and are professionals. Time is a question of life and death when someone is about to die. Someone is dying and ambulance is taking time to come. Time is important for those who don’t have time. That is what I think about time. But the question for today is whether it’s good to be late or not?
Getting late is a part of life. There won’t be a single person in this world who is never late for anything. There will be at least one occasion where he is late. In a country like India, getting late is very common. Very very common. Especially in the government offices. I heard of an employee who comes to work by 12 noon, gets refreshed. By the time it’s lunch time. She goes for lunch. Works for an hour and half. Then leaves office as she have limited buses to go back home. Hardly works for two hours. Most of the offices start at 10 o’clock. One hour late.
I can understand if it’s traffic problem. They are getting worse and worse. But hey… they don’t happen everyday in my city. I have been late many times during my job life. In my personal life not much. I try to be punctual. Often the transport hits me. I never got fired for getting late though. Being punctual always puts you in respected position. That also helps you to go ahead far more than other. On a job, you’ll earn some appreciation from your boss. That may in turn help in promotion. You see. Lots of benefits of being punctual and not late.
What happens when you are late? Is it always bad? Everything has it’s own flips and flops. So do this “Getting late” thing. There are these moments when a person was late and his life was saved. This has happened in many bomb blasts that are now regular. Getting late to a sale may often give you things cheaper than what they sold out a minute before. This list may not be a big list. But definitely not to be ignored.
I’ll stop here. I am getting late for something.. 😆 After all The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
Way back when school was school and not a way to earn money, there was a lot discipline in the schools. I remember my school days. I studied in a christian school where discipline injected in our bloodstream. You can compare that with the military training. Schools too can discipline as effectively as the cadets or soldiers in military. The dumb students or those sitting at the back of the class surely think school as military camp.
Being late in school was never allowed. I hardly saw anyone coming late to school. When there was someone then that student has to take a long walk towards the principals office. To be frank, Our school was in discipline just because of our principal. There was a fear for him in my mind till my last year in school when he taught us maths. He always asked me for the answers and my answers clicked often. And throughout the school life I never heard that question.. “Why are you late??” Continue reading →
What is Cricket??
You have two sides one out in the field and one in.
Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out.
When they are all out the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When both sides have been in and out including the not outs,
Thats the end of the game.
I hope you understood what cricket is. Now to the topic title. Is Cricket a religion?? In India they say,
If Cricket is religion, Sachin*** is God.
Certainly here peoples are crazy about Cricket. They Eat Cricket, Sleep Cricket, Think Cricket, Talk Cricket. Whenever there is India’s match you’ll find Government offices empty. Or near a TV or transistor. Crowd gathered on street outside TV shops. As an Indian this dangerous disease once affected me. But thanks to 2003 World Cup Final. It’s perfectly cured and I’m fit now. But for Cricket fan’s I should be admitted to Mental Hospital. (I still wonder why I’m not there). But the problem with that disease is that its infectious. So in order to stay away from infection, I sometime watch matches which are on Sundays. So far so good.
You see. I just got away from the topic. But reading all the above thing, It is a Religion. Its a religion which unites whole India together. This religion is very powerful. You hit this sweet spot, cleverly of course, Then name and fame are your’s. Everything has its Pro’s and Con’s. Cricket is no exception.
I don’t want you to feel bored. Will continue this Nonsense some other day.
*** = If you don’t know who is Sachin, Welcome to planet Earth.
A lady manager of a big reputed office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into her office.
” What is your name?” was the first thing she asked the new guy.
“John ,” the new guy replied.
She scowled, “Look… I don’t know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don’t call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority.
I refer to my employees by their last name only … Smith, Jones, Baker …that’s all.
I am to be referred to only as Mrs. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?”
The new guy sighed, “Darling………… My name is John Darling.”
” Okay John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . “
