My grandpa died before 4 years at the age of 97+. He lost memory during his last few days. But whenever he was able to recollect his thoughts & was able to understand what’s going on, he used to talk about his involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi movement during India’s freedom struggle. Khadi means hand woven cotton fabric. He used to preach few things till the day he was alive;
1. Saying/wishing/greeting RAM RAM is not a religious thing, even though LORD RAM is the highest celebrated deity in Hindu religion. It’s about seeing divine in other human life & exchanging equal amounts of respect for that reason.
2. The biggest sinners in this world go to church/temple/mosque very often. Because they have to keep reminding god to wash their sins.
3. 10% of your wealth/income must go towards DANA (in Sanskrit it means DONATION), donation towards helping underprivileged & upliftment of society.
Not a secret, i own a small health supplement business since September-2017. And now that business enjoys a loyal customer base because of good quality products & quick customer query resolution. With those fitness enthusiasts in mind, i started an athleisure clothing brand in August-2019.
Like every other human, i am not perfect & my business is also not perfect all the time. Especially the atheleisure clothing brand i am talking about, not talking about profit or loss. My operation is small and we never made a loss. I am talking about clothes not being perfect sometimes. While manufacturing/stitching/printing, in few cases there’s a misplaced logo or a packaging label mishap, a stitching at wrong part of the clothing material or short hoodie strings, so we reject few clothes while passing it through quality testing. But even those quality reject clothes are completely usable, sometimes even i use them as my layer-1 clothes during winter. Like previous year, this year too we will go to a nearby orphanage & a refugee shelter to donate some winter clothes/blanket/woolen socks. There’s an amazing feeling of fulfillment while giving it back. I am forever grateful to almighty for giving me little more than i can consume.
(In case anyone wants to join, i have updated the address in our CMU university group. Please don’t try to overcrowd the place, 12-13 people are enough. It bums my mood to see people roaming around without mask, so please wear a mask while coming.)
The average life span of a human is approximately 80 years. That’s equal to about 29,200 days. About 8030 of those are school days & university, leaving you with 21,170 days left. Let’s say you work for 40 years, that’s 14,600 days, leaving you with 6570 days. By the time you retire, you’ll be too weak to do as much as you could’ve. Almost 70% of your life is spent in school and work. So stop waiting until Friday, stop sleeping until 1:00 pm on weekends, stop telling yourself that the week will be over soon because that week might be your dream week. Spend every day like it’s your last & it’s your best. So go out with your friends, pull the all nighter, tell them how you feel, travel around the world, get your hair wet in pool, buy that expensive watch you desire, let go of toxic friendships, fix your GOALS and fetch them, do what your heart desires without hurting others. Don’t wait. Live a life you’d want to relive, or ur just cheating urself.
(Now that you read the entire post, calm the fuck down till this pandemic calms down. Follow rules of lockdown & get vaccinated when it’s your turn.)
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.
This video has nothing to do with the post above. Canadian premier’s message for christmas with warnings about current COVID-19 pandemic situation & it’s restrictions. See it & you will find some worth in it irrespective of your geographic location. Stay home stay safe.
First of all; you are & you will be fine. I am just wondering what a weird phenomena of this pandemic. It effects everyone. Someone in Wuhan-China first got effected by this. Then it’s bothering everyone of us at every corner of world. No flights in sky & bus drivers using mask to drive an empty bus from one spot to another, it’s weird af. So many are gonna suffer financially because of this. Not gonna put weak/poor/good/bad/rich/strong on it. Everyone of us need to stay calm quiet apart & together in it to get over this situation.
Don’t empty toilet paper, breads or any such kinda stupid things from your supermarket aisles. Shops are open & they will be. Don’t get frightened with shitty WhatsApp forwards. Please don’t rush to church or temple to seek your god’s blessings. It’s the dumbest idea at current moment to overcrowd any kinda public spot. As hard as it may sound, you staying home & you staying apart from people even inside home is the only solution to stop the contamination. At the end 50-60% population will get effected by this somehow before July-August time. To most of us, it’s just gonna be a small flu or cold which will heal itself by our body’s immunity or it might need a small amount of medication from healthcare services. You might have tons of doubts about what’s coming. Watch these two informative videos I am tagging below.
Second video is in Hindi only for people in India. & This guy DHRUV RATHEE does a tremendous job explaining about every mess even staying away from India.
This paragraph is for all young bloods including me, who usually feel offended when suggestions come like warnings that too from government. Please don’t try to behave oversmart. You might risk your & others life too with that irresponsible behaviour. I completely understand how important it is to flex being a outgoing person. I am one exactly like you. For me, there is no other better ways to enjoy singlehood without little socializing, swimming & gym. I am also struggling to keep my ass stuck in same GPS coordinate for more than a day. Let’s do one thing, learn a new game or language. Maybe take a lesson from skillshare about your interest/hobbies. Killing time is a tough task if your mind is not ready to learn something new. Don’t be just another lazyass binging Netflix whole day. Follow a good diet with enough wholesome grains & greens. Do little bodyweight workouts at home to keep yourself active. Both these diet & workout will help your body’s immunity getting stronger to deal with any such situations in days to come.
FOLLOW the instructions from healthcare providers, your government & WHO. Again; Stay home & avoid people.
