Are you a Non-stop ( Big ) Talker or a Patient Listener ?

  If you re one of those,fortunate to watch any of the news channels ( especially English news channels) in India,where participants number can almost reach magic No 10, and  it won’t take much time to realize how noisy and chaotic it is.( I am not sure why in the first place,so many people are invited to participate,instead of two to three  ) 1.Here every participant including the anchor talks loudly. 2. All talk simultaneously, 3. All screaming and 4. Shouting, 5. Participants even abusing each other . The viewer is confused regarding  the topic, and not sure why participants are arguing. The issue on which discussion is happening, becomes irrelevant due to  digression,everybody going crazy, and viewer’s Blood Pressure rising at the end and helplessly the viewer moves to the next channel. Here instead of debate there is a competition as to whose decibel is strongest. May be it is the way of  Civilized Debate sans debate. I started wondering  whether one has to be a Big Talker or a good Listener. Ask anybody, whether they are good listeners,invariably they say  ‘YES’ ,contrary to the fact. Majority Love talking endlessly about themselves ( I talk-you Listen syndrome ) till the other becomes restless. “Some people believe that being the loudest in the room makes them look strong. It may appear that way to a few uninformed individuals. What they don’t know is the more they talk, the more information they reveal […]

When it comes to advice,I’m a Giver

We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain. William R Alger quotes The advice I would give to someone is to not take anyone’s advice. Eddie Murphy Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t. Erica Jong No one can give you better advice than yourself.  Marcus Tullius Cicero Don’t offer me advice; give me money. Spanish Proverb Never give advice in a crowd.  Pope Paul VI If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in eye and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me. Ann Landers At the end ………….                                                                                                                                          Thanking you Philosophy Through Photography   Credits-Title quote-unknown,pixabay.

Are you the ‘Difficult Spouse’ ?

  It’s 5.4 minute read. If you are a wife or husband and on many occasions you think you are disappointed because of the other…..and think the other is the ‘difficult spouse’…. then this article is for you. I am thankful to you if you felt there is something wrong in either of the parties and the mistake can be rectified easily. There are two types of marriages.( Marriages are made in heaven.Is itn’t ?) 1.Love marriage 2.Arranged marriage ( In most of the eastern countries ) Irrespective of the type of marriage,both the man and the woman of his love have to adjust with each other in order to be compatible. In fact, post marriage life is full of challenges and it exposes the couple to myriads of issues. But we all know the truth. One day or other both the man & the woman have to face unpleasant situation of opposing & different opinions and views, in matters of their day-to-day ‘living together’ The reality of the so-called colorful future has to show its fangs,since it is waiting to strike first ! Once the misunderstanding happens and prolongs….There are two options available You decided you are not going to adjust at all…then Apply for divorce and probably matter can come to end to the mutual satisfaction,and thus ending the very discussion I am trying to make.

Hope everyone enjoys the true spirit of Friendship… PTP : Friendship is a bond of unspoken matter, Sharing  tears and laughter, You bring sense of humour, Keeps my mood a zoomer. Anamika : When life’s troubles came calling, And when my spirit’s kept on falling, When I wished for a shoulder to lean on, You came out of the blue with arms open. PTP : You are my white house, When I am lost in storm house, You are just a ping away, In my hours of May day. Mermaid : Are you the  one I was looking for Who can give me the life to live, I kept my doors open in search of someone, Who can touch my inner soul. Wandering here and there I found a person after a long time, Who stretched the  arms for me and […]

Why You feel God never answers your prayers ?

Recently one of my friends got depressed and expressed that,the Prayers are not being answered.This made me think about Gods way of looking after His creations. You are a strong believer in God. And you know His Unlimited Powers you have not just one but many wishes to be fulfilled and you go on praying Him. You are disappointed that not all your wishes are granted ! But why ? Isaac Breece beautifully puts it while explaining, “It’s not that God didn’t answer your prayer,it’s that you did not get the response you wanted.”  Isaac Breece As a believer in God ,I know that prayers never go unnoticed or unheard by the Almighty. God gives answers in three ways. 1.He says ‘YES’ and gives you what you want. 2.He says ‘NO’  but still gives you some thing Better. 3.He says ‘WAIT’ and gives you the Best . So leave it to God and He knows when to answer your prayers Remember the ways of God are unexplained. His ways are mysterious. His blessings are miraculous. Have patience.

“Eat your food like your medicines or else you will eat your medicines like food”.

  When diet is wrong,Medicine is of no use .When Diet is correct, there is no need of Medicine. Ayurveda Proverb But sadly, many times we love to over eat, eat wrong food,and express lack of time for daily exercises. Many other  excuses are readily available. Some of my friends who are diabetic,regularly eat sweets ( which is forbidden),and they come up with statements saying that their sugar is under control since they take their diabetic medicines regularly ,as if the diabetic medicines give them the license to over eat the sweets. Some other friends with Hypertension ( High blood Pressure ) eat food rich in salt, like pickles,salt laced chips etc.( salt is restricted for hypertensive patients). They happily tell me that they are care free since medicines they take to control the BP, will also take care of their salt in the food. What is your type ? Do You eat food and medicine also like my friends ? If you ask me, yes,I find many times difficult to resist the food,over eat some times and take pancreatic enzyme tablets for better digestion,whenever I felt I overindulged. What are your thoughts on this subject ? Thank you Philosophy Through Photography

Soulmate- True or Just an Illusion ?

It’s a 3.9 minute read. I am giving you Seven theories regarding the topic ‘SOULMATE’. Which one as per you is more accurate and near to truth and a fact indeed ? Or you feel it’s unrealistic and falsehood and just bogus  and even fraud committed on the gulliable!! Please guide me. I am as confused as anybody else. 1.Soulmate does not exist.It’s for professional POETS,who love to exaggerate the existence of Soulmate in their poetic style,laced with honey traces. 2.Soulmate exists.Yes.But only in ones dreams ! It’s impossible in this world to have a mirror image personality (100% ),scientifically ! 3.Soulmates do exist because of synchronisation of the individual’s flaws. “I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ―Lisa Kleypas Source-thoughtcatalog.com 4.The following theory stresses the point that age is immaterial in soulmate relationship. “A soulmate is not necessarily a lover or your life partner. A soulmate can be anyone in your life who has a great positive influence on you. Every single person that we deem to be “significant” truly is exactly that, for their vibrational […]
