A Message for the Indian Youth!

Consider this a rant for all you fellow Indians out there. What are we doing with our lives? We are living a lie, a life tied to the expectations of society and our families. Trapped by the dogma to choose a career based on other people’s expectations of us. The number of students literally ‘trapped’ in the engineering, medical, chartered accountancy courses is too damm high.

Its a part of our culture to take up only serious professions and dump our intuition, our own calling, what we always wanted to do, all the time. The society has made us believe that we are good for nothing but serious professional courses involving large amounts of knowledge which is totally not required.

Listen to me – We are behind in sports, our films suck, we need entrepreneurs and what everyone is after – Engineering. Who will win the medals at olympics, who will lift up the society if you my fellow Indians are taking a career choice which is never your calling and then take up a boring 9-5. Depression thrives when you have to do what you never intended to do.

There’s plenty of money everywhere, you gotta make a choice. Break the barrier and ask yourself today what is your calling, the thing you always want to do. Lets bring in a new culture of self choice of the path of life in the developing India.

Do what’s right for you, because doing the right thing is always the right thing. Staying driven all the time is only possible if you are doing what you love. Else you are making a fool out of yourself.

In the end it does’nt matter how much you make, its how do you make it.


Birthday ideas for you! (Read this before your next birthday)

(This is the first blog of my career.)

Yes. You read it right. If your birthday is about to come in a month or a week or less than that, this blog’s more relevant to you then anyone else. Birthday’s a moment of celebration for successfully completing a round of 365 days from your previous birthday. Its funny how humans have accepted this particular chain of 365 days as a benchmark for celebration. I celebrate my birthday every 30 days, yes! Keeping aside the analytics on why 365 days lets dwell into the purpose of having a birthday.

To the modern men and women of this era its a moment of happiness because of the countless number of wishes coming from all around, thanks to social media. Birthday celebrations all over the gram & snapchat – comments, likes and together with it a sense of happiness. Often it has been observed that birthdays come and go but we tend to forget to take time and look in retrospect to see how we have grown and changed over years. The celebrations, wishes, parties often makes us forget the very reason of having a birthday.

A good way to actually feel the vibe is by being gratitous and compassionate on your birthday. The feeling of gratitude beats all the feelings in the world. You may have tons of friends, followers and well wishers but nothing compares to the great satisfaction of helping the needy on your birthday. A practical way is by offering food to the roadside beggars, taking them to the McDonald’s and KFC’s, talking to them, listening their story, fuck it; take selfies with them.

Lets practice gratitude & compassion and motivate others to do the same. Just like any other trend make this very thing a trend a part of the global culture and spread happiness.

As the saying goes ” There are two most important days in a person’s life. The day they are born and the day they find out why?”
