Beautiful Mind is better than Fair Complexion
Beauty is not the face, but it is the light in the heart. There is much difference between looking beautiful and feeling beautiful. The term ‘beauty’ refers to the inner beauty. Inner beauty is based on personality traits such as attitude and the behaviour. Fair complexion is about the look, about the colour that brings difference in people.
The sale of fairness cream makes it clear that to have fair complexion is an obsession of our society, some people want fair complexion as it has become a parameter to judge a person’s beauty. The trend is ruling our mind as well as the TV shows. There is a clear discrimination being carried across our country, society, between relationship and friendship etc.
For the progress of the country, we have to get rid of all these narrow-minded attitude and focus on building a society where each individual is beautiful from inside.
मेरी मम्मी सबसे प्यारी
बातें उनकी बड़ी निराली।
सुबह सवेरे मुझे जगाती,
व्यायाम वो मुझे कराती।
कभी तो मुझको खूब दुलारती,
कभी वो मुझको डांट लगाती।
मुझको आँखों का तारा वो कहती,
गलती पर वो आँख दिखाती।
कभी प्यार से वो समझाती,
तो कभी सख्ती भी दिखलाती।
सारा काम वे संभालती,
सबका ख्याल भी वे रखतीं।
सदा अच्छी बातें सिखलाती,
अनुशासन में रहने को कहती।
मेरी मम्मी सबसे अच्छी,
दिल की हैं बिल्कुल सच्ची।
काश.. मैं पंछी होता
चींचीं चींचीं करता रहता,
काश अगर मैं पंछी होता।
खुले गगन में मस्ती करता,
पंख पसारे उड़ता रहता।
दाना चुगता, पानी पीता,
घर आकर चैन से सोता।
पिंजरे में मैं कभी न रहता,
सारा नभ मेरा घर होता।
चारों दिशाओं में मैं भले घूमता,
पर शाम होते घोंसले में लौटता।
छोटा होता पर हिम्मत रखता,
हर कठिनाई से खुद लड़ लेता।
चींचीं चींचीं करता रहता,
काश अगर मैं पंछी होता।
Chutki and the kind fairy
There was a little girl whose name was Chutki. She was very poor. One day she told her mother that she wants to go to school like other children. But her mother had no money to send Chutki to school. She was very upset. She told Chutki, “I don’t have money to fulfil your dreams. We are very poor. But dear daughter, someday one fairy will come and give us a lot of money. And from that money I will surely send you to school.”
Chutki wondered when that fairy will come. Whole day she kept waiting for that kind fairy.
That night Chutki fell asleep thinking about the fairy and school. In her dream, a beautiful fairy appeared before her. She hold her hand and took her inside a beautiful palace. In that palace there were many chocolates, candies, toys, ice creams etc. She asked Chutki to take any of these things.
Chutki said, “Dear fairy, I don’t want chocolates or candies. I want to study like other children. I wish to go to school.”
Fairy was very happy to hear what Chutki said. Fairy said, “Chutki, you are not like other children. Even after seeing these things you focused on what actually you wanted. I am happy. Your wish will come true.”
Saying this the fairy disappeared. Chutki opened her eyes and to her surprise she found that her small hut has been turned into a big house and beside her a bag full of gold coins was kept. She woke up her mother and told everything to her.
Her mother thanked the fairy. The next day Chutki got admission in a big school. Chutki started to go to school every day. She studied very hard and scored good marks. Chutki completed her studies and now she is the Principal in a big school.
My Idea of Freedom
Freedom seems to be just a simple word; but no, this word cannot be given a specific meaning. Its meaning differs in every culture, city and people. If we ask what is freedom, everybody will give a different answer. Bookish meaning of freedom means, ‘state of mind in which we are free to act according to ourselves.’ But if we wonder what freedom is; we see birds flying in the sky, animals freely roaming around the fields, children playing in the park. We see that they all are free but maybe according to them they are not free.
According to me, real freedom is to live freely on Earth. Every human being lives on Earth with love and prosperity with the other living things. There should be no fight between humans based on religion, caste and creed. There should be no killing and violence. Everybody should be treated equally. Today humans are in danger because of their own fellow beings. No one is safe, neither animals nor humans. Children cannot move freely, women are not at all safe. So when we change these differences, then only we should know that we are actually free. It is important that you do not just have right to do but can choose happiness over adjustments. Freedom means free state of mind and heart.

FIGHT UNTIL YOU REACH THE GOAL……
“ If fate is out to defeat you, if fate is out to dishearten you, never give up, do not loose faith and importantly heart, set up a good fight until you defeat fate”.
Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting. Such is the positive thinking that great men have given to the rest of the fellow human beings. The great scientist A.P.J.ABDUL KALAM, who dared to spell out a vision for a country, was a person who fought his way from the streets of Rameshwar , Tamil Naidu to the top of Scientific community in India. He worked as a newspaper vendor and he even had to sell his sister’s ornaments for his education. His mind was ignited with dreams for India’s development not only in technology, but also in the development of it’s teeming millions. It is this dream that kept him going till his last breath. King Bruce, who drew inspiration from the spider when he was defeated in his seventh successive battle and had taken refuge in a cave, is an inspiration for all of us. These people never allowed fate or failure to overtake them. At the end , I would like to remind everyone about the message which Swami Vivekananda gave to young men and women “ Arise, awake and stop not until the goal is reached “.
The Event of My Inspiration
This memory has embedded deep inside my heart. We all have our insecurities but being bullied about your insecurities is horrific. When we hear people saying bad things about us we start to feel insecure.
When I was eight, I had this obsession of makeup. Well I would basically wear it every morning; even in online classes! This was just because I was insecure about myself. Each time I tried to build myself confidence, my head would be flooded with questions like, ‘Am I good enough?’, ‘What if I’m not?’, ‘What if I mess this up?’ since in second grade I would get bullied because of not being pretty enough.
Everyone used to say that I would not be able to achieve anything in life. After six months of suffering this finally broke me. I used to wake up at 5:30 a.m just to do my makeup. Now that I think about this, I feel sick. How did I let others treat me like that!
The moral of the story is- don’t pay attention to judgment. People’s job is to judge the insecure and break them. Feel good about yourself no matter what and as the saying goes, ‘You may still lose when everyone believes you, but you will win if you believe in yourself.’
– Bhavya Kumari
“We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” —Marie Curie
Self confidence is a super power. Once you start to believe in yourself, magic starts happening. Having a healthy level of self-confidence can help you become more successful in your personal and professional life.
Self-confidence is an attitude about your skills and abilities. It means you accept and trust yourself and have a sense of control in your life. You know your strengths and weakness well, and have a positive view of yourself. You set realistic expectations and goals, communicate assertively, and can handle criticism.
On the other hand, low self-confidence might make you feel full of self-doubt, be passive or submissive, or have difficulty trusting others. You may feel inferior or be sensitive to criticism. Feeling confident in yourself might depend on the situation. For instance, you can feel very confident in some areas, such as academics, but lack confidence in others, like co- Curricular activities.
Having high or low self-confidence is rarely related to your actual abilities, and mostly based on your perceptions. Perceptions are the way your think about yourself and these thoughts can be flawed.
Low self-confidence might stem from different experiences, such as growing up in an unsupportive and critical environment, judging yourself too harshly, or being afraid of failure. People with low self-confidence often have errors in their thinking.
So there are certain ways by which one can increase confidence in oneself-
*Recognize and emphasize your strengths. Reward and praise yourself for your efforts and progress.
*When you stumble on an obstacle, treat yourself with kindness and compassion.
*Set realistic and achievable goals. Do not expect perfection; it is impossible to be perfect in every aspect of life.
*Slow down when you are feeling intense emotions and think logically about the situation.
*Recognize that past negative life experiences do not dictate your future.
*Express your feelings, beliefs and needs directly and respectfully
*Learn to say no to unreasonable requests.

Tolerance and Patience –Important Ingredients of a beautiful life
“How patience and tolerance, be positive about everything. At the end, you will be the winner.”
We always tend to say that Life has become very difficult today. But, if we analyze, we will find that life was always like this and the survival of the fittest is the perennial mantra. It is imperative that in pursuit of our efforts to reach our destination, we may get enchanted, bewildered and disoriented and then our inbuilt attributes come to our rescue. These attributes are our sheer strength, which help us in bringing us back to our journey path to achieve our goal. Patience and Tolerance are two such traits, which are two of the most important ingredients of a peaceful, successful and beautiful life. But we often get confused with these two words and tend to consider them as synonyms of each other. Patience is synonymous with words such as understanding, endurance, composure, and restraint. Patience helps in moving towards our goal with perseverance, diligence and tenacity. This indicates about our inner strength of dealing with all obstacles. Patience is the outcome of confidence, proper planning, coordination of resources and time management. Whereas, Tolerance gives you strength to accept facts during the journey to goal. It is not about losing confidence, rather it may be termed as Plan-B, when the pursuit of reaching goal is getting jerky and is losing track. The virtue of tolerance includes all moral values, ensures the development of a progressive society and embodies the meanings of humanity. Learning to be tolerant helps us to build endurance and confidence by facing and overcoming obstacles. Nature is a great teacher. The tolerance of the Earth gives us days and nights in the span of 24 hours every day, and the tolerance of the flowers before they bloom ultimately helps in pollination, which provides us with delicious fruits to savor and also gives nectar to the bees to produce honey. And this is why we also need to be tolerant because only then we can understand our true nature and work accordingly on our goals. It also means you accept that others are different and have different abilities. If you can appreciate these differences, you are said to be tolerant. Patience is the ability to keep cool under trying conditions and not letting self to fly off the handle. A positive attitude while hustling helps us go the extra mile, which can make a huge difference. Had the ant not been patient and tolerant of the obstacles, it would have given up after the first try itself, but its tolerance to accept the obstacles and ultimately patience pays the dividend in reaching it goal. Tolerance is the ability to accept and live with people who are different from us, treating them with respect and dignity. On the other hand, patience is the attribute of waiting calmly for your turn in a queue. We can develop tolerance and patience by becoming aware of the situation, journey, knowledge and the goals. Let us all try to inculcate these attributes and make our life peaceful, purposeful and beautiful.
