Looking forward to a new positive beginning
This thought has been brewing in my mind since the day of the earthquake and the destructive tsunami in Japan on March 11, 2011. A few days prior to this, New Zealand suffered a severe earthquake too. Both these events resulted in huge loss of lives and properties. After these two devastating events, I have observed that the only obvious reaction amongst people of different age, size and genre has been “Is this the end” “the end of the world has started”, “2012 predictions are going to be true” and so on and so forth. Till recently, to be precise, till the day of release of the movie 2012 , nobody even thought in these ultimate lines. The movie has had a great impact on peoples’ minds. People are tweeting about these above-mentioned events on twitter and people are expressing their concern/fear/survival strategies on the day when the planet Earth will just crumble and vanish in the vastness of the universe. I could not believe my own eyes when I saw websites dedicated on dreams people dream about 2012 and as how everything is going to end! Are they kidding me? I am disgusted and amused at the same time.
You must have heard of the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. I have read the book and have also seen the video made on that book. I totally agree with the formula and I have experienced the effects of visualising in my own life. Hence, my point here is, since many people are actually visualising the end of the world and they believe that it is going to happen in 2012; this way, these people actually want it to happen by asking for it to happen. All the negative and destructive thinking of people around the globe is actually creating the negative event in the same pace it is being imagined, talked about and feared. I believe that if you think of one thing a lot and visualise it in your head/mind repeatedly, you end up having it. My belief is not baseless I know. This belief has been quoted many times in many forms before. Some of these include, “imagination is the life’s coming attractions” and “be careful what you wish for, lest it come true”.

Whatever happened in Japan and New Zealand and in India in 2004 were absolute natural phenomena. If you think rationally, it does not predict the end of the world or the beginning of the end of world as well. I really pity those who are so petrified anticipating, contemplating the end of the world or are scared to die. Death is also an absolute natural phenomenon. People will die and that is the only truth, regardless of the 2012 predictions coming to reality or not. So, my point here is, why panic so much and waste our time over something so unimportant? Yes, “unimportant” because even if it was to be true, we, mere human beings cannot do anything about it. So, instead, we can resolve to live a happy and healthy life and think of wonderful things that can happen in the future. Instead of worrying on “can-happen-negatives” we all can dream/visualise about what we wish to happen and want to happen. You would love to know that when right-minded and well-balanced people together in communion and consensus think good and positive, the extremes warned about can be warded off making good things to happen instead.

51 more reasons...... why it's great to be a woman

  1. Working / Earning is not mandatory.
  2. We always get place to sit when using public transport.
  3. We don't have to stand on the queue to get tickets.

  12. We don't worry about receding hairline.
  13. We can easily show our disappointments or disapprovals (sometimes without even saying a word!)
  14. Even strangers show care if we are in trouble. Men have to manage themselves

  17. Sweat is sexy on us
  18. We get candies, flowers and jewellery all the time because men screw up so often
  19. Women are cleaner

  21. When women get upset, we don't destroy property or hurt people - we just take it out on the world in general because we can
  22. It’s easy for us to make friends
  23. We can do makeup anywhere
  24. If we do heavy purchase we don't have to carry those things. Men are there
  25. We have a higher tolerance to pain
  26. Most women actually look good in short shorts – men DON'T.
  27. Women who don't wear underwear are considered sexy and wild, when men do it, it's rather disgusting
  28. We have mastered civilized eating - we don't embarrass our friends or make loud bodily noises in public
  29. We don't have excessive amounts of body hair
  30. We don't spend 45 minutes in the toilet

  42. We don't have to drive when on a date
  43. An ugly woman can use makeup and get a new hairdo to become presentable - ugly men are just ugly
  44. Women look better naked
  45. We know that rhythm doesn't only pertain to dancing
  46. When women are short, we're petite.  When men are short, they're just short
  47. There are many hands to lift us when we slip on the ground. Poor men they have to get up on their own
  48. And we don't have to feel shy about falling down
  49. Women's conversations generally consist of more than just "uh huh, yep, ok, then – bye"
  50. Women don't need an excuse to be in a bad mood
  51. The remote control is not an extension of ourselves 
To my male readers: No hard feelings guys! Just having fun with this one! :) 

International Women's Day

Today, on International Women's Day, I felt like uploading one of my articles that I wrote during my tenure in The Asian Age as a Sub-Editor. I am yet to find the article on my laptop. So, here's sharing the scanned copy of the newspaper publication. :) I sincerely hope you'd like it.
