Happiness is....???????????

Happiness!
where art thou found?


The most difficult thing to define is 'happiness'

All our lives we want only one thing. To be happy.
Kids, adults, old people, good and bad people, sane and insane people, all everyone wants, is to be happy, isn't it?
We have been told that "If you do this" you will be happy. If you "Get that" you will be happy.
We have some fixed concepts in our minds about what happiness really is.
We study, we struggle, we work and do so many things, all in the pursuit of happiness.
We spend our entire lives chasing the ever-elusive happiness.
Even at times when we are happy, does it really last? Just a small word from someone or just a small thing going wrong somewhere is enough to fade our happiness.

These days on  the social networking site - Facebook, you'll find 'The Happy Page' one of the most sought after and popular pages. Reason?? I don't need to tell you do I?

Well if you ask me, happiness is just a state of mind. It is like air, you can only just feel it. Nothing else. It depends entirely on us whether to be happy or not.
Yeah yeah, I know you'll think "that's easy to write but difficult to follow" Of course! I agree with you! It is difficult to follow, but not impossible right???
I feel that if we stop conditioning our minds to think "if" , then a lot of problems will be solved.

Just drop the "if" and be happy that's what I would say. Happiness doesn't depend upon outer things.
I think in today's times, it has become essential for us to be happy and especially be happy without any reason. There is greed, violence, corruption, pain and suffering all around us.. When we realize that happiness is an inner thing and that we ourselves govern it, the world might become a better place to live in.

After all if nothing can take away our pain, then nothing should be able to take away our happiness either!!!!

So yes, it's okay to be unhappy once in a while so that we understand the value of happiness because the true value of happiness cannot be understood without a tiny bit of sadness.

Put your self out there in the world, do whatever it takes to achieve your goals, but  do remember to ponder upon this, remember to be happy, will you??




Like I always say- Dream. Imagine. Be. Crazy. You. now I would like to modify it a little. Dream. Imagine. Be Crazy. Be happy. Be You.
                                               
Au Revoir!!

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Gaurav Ghatnekar - A candid interview with a gifted actor!

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-


Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.


  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
