Unexpected Visitor

What is your reaction when an unexpected guest visits you?

Just think.

Elementary my dear Watson!

Either you are excited or you become dull. Is it not so ??

Of course, I am not talking about the guests/strangers/relatives/friends…visiting you!

Surprised??

Then what?

My dear friend, have patience.

Read on…..

I can think of 5 things that happen or happening or happened in your life.

And all of them come to you uninvited!

1.Love

Love is the most unexpected visitor in the form of Amnesia. It lets you forget about more than 6 billion other people in this world” Unknown

How was your first feeling of you falling in love?

And may I have the pleasure of listening from your mouth?

2.Again Love…..

Love never tells you as it is leaving and you struggle to understand!!

“Love is an uninvited visitor. It never tells when it’s coming and when it’s leaving” Hammodie Ali

3.Old age

” Old Age is the most unexpected of all things that happened to a person”. Leon Trotsky

I understand that majority of the old people refuse to believe that they have reached old age.

Surprisingly others have to remind them!!

I’m glad. It’s good for their health!

Don’t you agree my old pals?

4.Death

Of course, each one of us is aware that ‘death’ comes as an unexpected visitor. But fortunately, we are not alive to express our reaction!

Isn’t it a good feeling that we can’t react to our own death?

And the death of a loved one at an unexpected time gives you a Shock followed by depression, followed by adjustment, and then acceptance and your life goes on…

5.Expect the unexpected

This is what everybody says. Do you agree?

“If someone says to expect the unexpected, slap them in the face and say “I bet you did not expect that” unknown

Just watch the reaction!!

Take home message

“Being human is a guest house.

A joy, a depression, meanness, or some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…

Welcome and entertain them all.

Treat each guest honorably.

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond”

Jalaluddin Rumi

Which unexpected visitor do you love to welcome?

And why?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Zero Discrimination day March 1 st

Zero Discrimination day

At the end of the game,the king and the pawn go back in the same box      Italian Proverb.

Remember the above quote forever.

‘Zero Discrimination day’ is celebrated internationally on 1 st March,every year by UN & other international organisations.

Zero Discrimination Day 2020 Theme is “Zero Discrimination against Women and Girls” Source-Unique2brilliance.com

The symbol of Zero Discrimination day is a Butterfly,which is widely recognized as a sign of transformation.

We are all different.There is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the mill human being,but we share the same human spirit.   Stephen Hawking

The Zero Discrimination Day is a UNAIDS campaign of solidarity that stands up to racism, discrimination at work, discrimination at school, and other activities that reduce people’s ability to participate fully and meaningfully in society.

Around the world, this movement has garnered the support of many celebrities and prominent figures who want a world free of stigma and discrimination.  Source-Vercalandario.inf

Is Culture responsible for the discrimination?

Looks like it has to take some share.

Sexual,racial,gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture can’t be eliminated  without changing culture  Charlotte Bunch

Zero discrimination day also aims to bring awareness of AIDS & HIV positive people,who are discriminated at every stage including medical help.

“Only people who have been discriminated against can really know how much it hurts. Each person feels the pain in his own way, each has his own scars. So I think I’m as concerned about fairness and justice as anybody. But what disgusts me even more are people who have no imagination. The kind T. S. Elliot calls ‘hollow men’. People who fill up that lack of imagination with heartless bits of straw, not even aware of what they’re doing. Callous people who throw a lot of empty words at you, trying to force you to do what you don’t want to”.       Haruki Murakami

Wishing a   ‘Happy Zero Discrimination Day’  to all my WP friends.

Thank you.
