Whoops !!

Whoops, moment!

Merriam Webster Dictionary says ‘To express mild apology, surprise or dismay’

What is this person doing on the pavement?


“Relax….take it easy…nothing under control”

Sure. I shall explain because I am the witness.

This is the moment when this person slipped while trying to cross the road, and others watching this person expressed ‘oops’!

The leveling on the pavement is not proper as you can notice it, and unfortunately, this person didn’t notice plus it rained a few moments ago.

Luckily no major hurt.

When you come across these ‘ whoops moment’…..what are your thoughts?

  • Will you be depressed that something bad happened?
  • Or you are busy cursing yourself for being in a great hurry just because you are missing the bus?
  • Or you are relieved that nothing major happened?
  • Or you felt anger because somebody laughed at you?
  • Or are you wondering why such things happen to you only and not others and that too so frequently?

Can one prevent Slips, Trips & Falls?

My friend, you have reached the correct point to know the answer, the exact answer.

Now proceed further…

“I believe that everything happens for a reason.

People change so that you can learn to let go

Things go wrong so that you appreciate them  when they’re right

You believe lies, so eventually learns to trust no one, but yourself

Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together.”  Marilyn Monroe

What we are supposed to do when things go out of control?

Very simple.

Let go of things, you can’t control’

If you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it.

Life is a beautiful mystery and none of us know what comes next!

Realize that your life is nothing but an entity full of twists and turns.

“Life is a mystery-every one must stand-alone”  Madonna

“Life is love-enjoy it,

Life is a mystery- know it,

Life is a promise- fulfill it”   Mother Teresa

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

“Faster is fatal,slower is safe”- Amit Kalantri


Speed is relative. You have to live it. You can’t just jump into it. You have to live it all the time Mario Andretti

Faster is fatal,slower is safe-Amit Kalantri

How fast you wish to achieve things in life?

Modern life is made for fastness and in broadband language, our modern day’s life speed ranges from Superfast to Ultrafast to Hyperfast.

You wish to accompany everything within a few minutes, forgetting the danger lurking at every corner.

Many times you don’t find time for yourself. What a sad status of leading you’re precious and short spanned life !!

You forget one thing in the process

“There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Slowing down has never been so relevant, in this fast-paced life.

One comes with the usual answer ‘ No time ‘ since we are always busy busy busy…..

We never learn lessons from Mother Nature. We even circumvent to achieve our goals thinking that we are outwitting everyone and are smarter.

Nothing more harmful than this attitude.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. Lao Tzu

What is that I am trying to impress?

For you to achieve something in life, you should have a vision, followed by strong will power and confidence in what you are doing…….then you are assured of success not in seconds but over the time, which may take years. Have patience.

Get involved with your vision, start enjoying the journey, and maintain patience for the amazing results to unfold.

“It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.” Confucius

Take it easy.

Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach. Tom Robbins

“Goodbyes make you think. They make you realize what you’ve had, what you’ve lost, and what you have taken for granted” Ritu Ghatourey

May month was the hardest and harshest so far in 2020 events and you know by now, all due to Corona .

What is the effect of Corona Virus?

“You’ve changed me forever. And I’ll never forget you.” Kiera Cass,

We are aware of the extreme suffering in all aspect of life caused by the deadly Corona Virus.

Are you scared that ‘History repeats itself ?’.No my friend,this time we will be cautious and respectful to Mother Nature

The first Five months 2020 has taught us life’s Real lessons.

Learn from the Child


“A child can teach an adult three things:

To be happy for no reason,

To always be busy with something, and

To know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”  Paulo Coelho

Instead what is happening ?

” We spend the first year of a Child’s life… teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of it’s life to shut up and sit down.There is something wrong there ”  Neil deGrasse Tyson
