The Power of Being Good

Since a couple of days a question has been revolving in my mind. The question is-What happened to 'good'? During my childhood days, I used to hear a lot about the word 'good'. Whenever a person asked me the question regarding what kind of a person I am, I would always reply in a boastful manner to him that I am a good boy. We were all born and bought up in a place where 'good' manners were given the utmost priority in our lives. We always had a desire to become 'good' citizens of our respective countries. But now, after all these years, I feel that somewhere along the line, the word 'good' is losing it's significance. The word which was once considered as one of the best words, is slowly being replaced by words like'cool', 'great', 'amazing', etc. Now having said that, I don't mean that the replaced words are not decent. It's just that those words are being used more frequently than it should have, given the kind of magnitude it holds.
Now in the next 30-45 seconds, let me tell you what a good person actually means

  • It means that he is a person who values his relationships and remains true to his words.
  • It means that he is a person who does not run away from hard times, but rather embraces it, since he acknowledges the fact that it will only make him stronger from the inside.
  • It means that he is a person who seeks more growth, and not more things.
  • It means that he is a person who behaves in a graceful manner.
  • It means that he is a person who always has the hunger to improve himself in a comprehensive manner.
  • It means that he is a person who gives nothing but his very best in the work he does and delivers more than is expected.
  • It means that he is a person who will not be brainwashed in believing in the status quo.
  • It means that he is a person who reaches out to others and tries to strike a constructive conversation with others to make new friends and increase his circle of influence.
Hope I have been of help to you. Share this message to all the good people around you to make them realise how important they are. Thank you.

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.
