Books.......Guiding the enlightened


Image result for books

The above title must have given you the idea about the topic which I am going to touch upon today i.e. books.I have always been a voracious reader and strongly recommend others to do the same.I have always loved to read self help books and the autobiographies of great people.Its not that I have any kind of animosity towards romantic or thriller genres,but it has never appealed me the way the above mentioned books do.

Whatever you want to become has been already written about,and guess what,its all available! Jim Rohn once said that successful people have libraries,while the average people have large TV sets.So I guess what he tried to suggest us was this-victims love entertainment whereas the leaders love education.I have always been fascinated in knowing the kind of obstacles they had to face and the undeterred will power which they mustered to conquer those challenges.

So I invite you to read some inspiring books which will push you,stretch you and mould your mindset in a positive way.It is said that the hand that puts down a great book is never the same again.The mind when stretched by a new idea finds itself difficult to go back to its original dimension.

I strongly recommend you to read the autobiographies of Mahatma Gandhi,Nelson Mandela and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam because reading those books is nothing less than having a conversation with them.And like every great conversation,you walk out being a better human being.

This Diwali, Let Us Smash The Traditional Vices

It was Sunday morning, the day most of the people look forward to. But it was not the case with Razia. She woke up heavy-heartedly. Reason- It was Diwali time, and unfortunately due to some or the other reason, she always finds herself in her hometown, Delhi, which off late has been popularly known as the 'gas chamber'. 





Being a Muslim girl never stood in her way of celebrating Diwali with fervour and zeal. She buys new clothes, embellishes her house with some of her handmade craft materials and eats those savoury sweets along with her family. She goes to the place of her Hindu friends, wish all of them and would have a blast! But the only thing with which she maintains a certain amount of distance is the firecrackers. Nearly half of Delhi's kids suffer from 'severe' lung problems due to the deteriorating air quality and Razia is one among those hugely populated children who fall in this unfortunate category. She suffers from asthma, and therefore can't stand …

A Visit to Orphanage and Old-Age home

Mere words won't be able to do justice to describe the kind of majestic experience which we had on that eventful day. A school trip is always a memorable one, but when it is to such a pious place, than it gets all the more interesting. To be honest, we went off from school in a picnic mode. We were all so excited and pumped up. We were sitting in the buses and there were mimicries being done and songs being sung.

Don't Quit- Poem

Since last few days I've been listening to various poems by the budding poets around the globe and enjoyed most of them. But then I came across this one which was so serene and motivating, that I really couldn't resist myself from sharing it with you guys. It somewhat goes like this:


When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you're trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,  Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with it's twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems low You may succeed with another blow Often the gold is nearer than, It seems to be a faint and faltering man. Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup And he learnt too late when the night slipped down, How close he …
