Astounding Yourself

Thomas Edison once said-'If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we will literally astound ourselves'. A brilliant insight. It has been observed that the biggest obstacle faced by a person in his/her journey towards self-development is not the obstacles thrown at him/her by the family, peers or society. These are something which we can easily overcome, provided that we are willing to fight our way through it. The problem is that one doesn't believe in oneself.

If you are going to achieve anything in your life, you have to convince a person that you have what it takes to get what you want. You have to convince  a person that no matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets, you are not gonna throw in the towel quickly. If you are able to convince that person all this, wonders will start happening in your life.

Well that person is not a sage or an opulent guy, but he is the person whom you see everyday in the mirror. Yes, it's you. Nobody else needs to convinced about your abilities other that you. You are not powerless, on the contrary, you are powerful beyond measure. The problem is that one does what he thinks he can do, not the things which he really can. Nobody is going to believe in you, until you start believing yourself.Surely, if you do it, the result which you will produce would definitely astound 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.

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 …
