Humanity vs Brutality: The Battle.

Hello everyone!!

So, it's been quite a while and I'm back to blogging after long! I've made a mental note now to be more frequent with my posts here.
 Sharing with all of you a poem on humanity and it's battle with brutality.

........

"When people fight over petty issues
Humanity cries
When people support the wrong
Humanity is astonished
When there are wars
where people kill
in the name of religion
when they masscare the other
without a care
Brutality is filled with smugness of it's victory
While in the corner, Humanity bleeds...


When innocent children are harmed
when young girls are maimed
when injustice is done
Brutality gloats in glory
and slowly strangles
Humanity with it's bare hands..

When the cloud of brutality
overtakes the morals and ethics of people
when there are hidden agendas
and selfsh motives
behind harming others
through words or actions
Humanity struggles to breath
she struggles to survive..
she struggles to break free
and wants a chance to live again..

Whilst Humanity is dying a slow death,
in her battle with brutality and cruelty..
don't you want to know,
what could keep her alive and thriving?
what could keep her happy and carefree?

'You' my friend can keep her breathing..
 you can help her survive through your gentleness
Through willingness to listen
with an open mind
through accepting people
irrespective of their caste, culture or creed
through speaking up when it's due
and standing up for what's right

Just a small gesture
a small act of kindness
a tiny bit of help
makes Humanity shine in all gloriousness

Humanity thrives on justice
She'll flourish on forgiveness
and glow when there's compassion..



Humanity, the essence.. binding us all
without which we will all fall
It's upto us to make Humanity live
and help her defeat brutality with all might
by standing by what's right..





Only we can aid her in keeping her spirit

Because no matter where we are
and what we do
we simply are
HUMAN... "






...











So there you go. Hope you all liked this one. and see you all soonest with a new blog post.

Till then

Dream. Imagine. Be Crazy. Be You.

Au revoir.

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 life, and help in giving you enriching experiences.


1. Go out and eat alone.
Yes, you heard that right. It may sound simple or bizzare or unimportant, until you actually go out and do it. In a country like India where going out with company is a norm,eating solo can make you feel embarassed or as if you are doing something inappropriate. Especially we women are totally so used to being surrounded by people and we always need someone to go out with, whether it's your friends, family or someone special, we are constantly in company. Having company is great. It is the thing I crave for love the most in fact. But what if you went out alone to eat? Sounds weird?? That's exactly why you should do it then. You know what, if you really want to get a unique experience, the best thing is to go out to an eatery/ restaurant/ mall/ cafe, sit there and eat alone. Trust me, as an Indian woman, even someone who has lived in the cities, it was tough and awkward for me when I did it, but the liberating experience was definitely worth it.



2. Smile More.
This one seems to be very easy, but when you try it, you actually realise how less you have been smiling. Try smiling at that co-worker you don't like. Try smiling at the homeless kid on the street or a stranger on your way back home. Do you smile often enough at your family, friends and the special
people in your life? Do you smile when you look at yourself in the mirror?? Most of the times, we forget to do that. I forget it as well. So just smile looking at them and yourself and see the difference. Not only are the people around you happy, but you'll be happier as a result. Initially it seems difficult, it seems so to me many times as well. You would have to force a smile in the beginning but later on it just happens naturally on most occasions. You feel different inside and of course appear much more pleasant.

3. Modify your routine.
Perhaps you keep doing the same old routine, like some people. And that's okay. It's good. Routine is a necessity for all of us. But if you want to expand your horizons and bring a change in your lifestyle changing  tiny things in your routine can be good and make you feel better about following it. It can be as small a change as trying different clothes for work, or changing the road you take to travel your destinations or simply going out and meeting an old friend. Or just change the position of your dining table in the kitchen or put that vase in a different corner. Small little things. Whatever you feel can bring about a change in your current schedule or in the way your current life seems to be.



4. Travel.
Of course, this one doesn't need an introduction. It is already my favourite thing to read about and write as well, so I'll keep it short. Much has already been written about traveling by so many people out there. That's because it does add value to the way you perceive things in life.Traveling doesn't
mean taking exotic trips and expensive vacations. If you want an enriching experience while traveling, make sure you learn about the history or culture of that place, interact with a few locals and learn how things work there. It's not just about the destinations, but the effort you make to understand and enjoy the journey. You can even travel to various places in or just outside your own city or town which you havent explored before just for a different experience. Go out with your friends, family or your significant other, or the much talked about solo traveling way.  Doesn't matter what, but when you come back, remember to carry a new piece of experience with you which will enrich your life.





These were a few of the ways which I find simple enough to help me broaden my horizons. Hope atleast one of them appeals to you all.

There are 100s of ideas out there. Find what suits you the best. Perhaps you can invent a different concept yourself!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Au Revoir!
