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.
The world today revolves around some shit of paper called money. Everything, well almost everything, can be bought with money. Some say emotions cannot be sold. But what about the ones we watch in movies? They are emotions. They reflect on us. We laugh, we cry, we are happy, we are sad when we watch movies. So in a sense emotions also have a price tag.
So what will happen to this world without money? Just imagine the world without money. While picturizing this you may get horrible pictures if you are a businessman or a banker. On the other side, one who is poor will be happy. There is no money and he doesn’t have to worry about money now. But will the life without money really remove poverty? That’s a question I cannot answer. Continue reading →

While watching Discovery I thought of buying an Elephant. I’ve been always fascinated by elephants. And Lord Ganesh the “Elephant God”. The huge size they posses is just pleasure to watch. But I don’t like watching animals in zoo. They are at their best in wild. And so do the elephants.
Back to the topic. I was watching this documentary on elephants “Wildlife Special – Elephants”. A very nice documentary and liked it. Elephants posses some great qualities and somehow they resemble human beings. They have a huge families. If there is danger signs are passed from on group to another group. And these signals travels kilometers.
The fact that I liked was the amount of food they eat. They eat 150Kgs per day. And the next thought made me buy the elephant. With the amount of food they eat they pass gas. And that whole lot of gas. It’s 2000 liters per day.
This is methane gas. This much amount can burn for almost 10 hours. Enough to cook my food, Boil water. The increasing price of oil and gas leads me to this alternative. For my needs I’ll require only 2-3 hours of that. So you can take the rest of it. Recently 3-4 days back gas price was hiked by Rs. 50. Thats a bit too high. We have to search for an alternate.
This gives you another reason to save elephants. Save elephants and save money.
