Its all about your outlook..HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL..

All of us are surrounded by people with myriad of emotions, countless expressions and limitless mannerisms..but on the whole, we can distinctively divide them into Euphoric, Elated and Happy or Depressed, Sad or Melancholic..

and this art of being happy/elated or Sad/melancholic does not specifically depend upon presence or absence of any person or object, but most of the times, it depends upon our outlook towards the situation..A person can be happy and another sad in the similar situations and with similar possessions and assets..

some examples i saw in near past about how a persons perspective and way of thinking can alter their state of mind from positive to negative and the other way around..

One of my friend was going on a holiday vacation with his family, somewhere in India..while whole of his family enjoyed the vacations, he was thinking all time about his colleague being on an international spot for his holidays..WHAT A WASTE OF VACATIONS!!!…Holidays are means of getting rid of your routines and enjoy your free time. you can be jealous of your colleague at your daily office routines!!!

one other person i know, got his son admitted to nursery class in a well known school with a good reputation..he liked almost everything about the school but for one, and he shifted his ward to another school at double the distance from their home, due to this..and what was that..He felt that his son was not speaking good English..even he was not sure whether this is the fault of the school or not!!…C’mmon…only a NURSERY KID..The same person had once slapped his son Because He was not willing to go to DANCE class..overall his son had not started mixing with other kids with ease…BUT HEY..SLAPPING, SCOLDING…A NURSERY KID!!….GIVE ME A BREAK..

Some persons have stopped frequenting to Facebook as they felt depressed after using Facebook..they did not feel at ease when t hey saw their friends update about a new car, a new house or a long vacations at exotic places..JEALOUSY AT ITS BEST!!..

these were only a few examples and it was just a tip of iceberg..i know that no body including me is spared by these kind of thoughts, some more and some less…but we can minimise our agony, our depressions and our sorrows if we care about the things which we can change…and that too with a reasonable efforts and practicality..and keep our-self positive about the life!!..

THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO LOOK AT OTHERS…TO THINK OF OTHERS AS POSITIVE(GOOD) UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE, AND, TO THINK OF OTHERS AS NEGATIVE (BAD, NOT GOOD) UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE..AND THIS WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE….

where is the education in schools?..

This time of the year, every year, the race begins, the race for the parents to various schools, their neighbours, internet and whatever sources available to search for the best schools and apply for NURSERY admissions for them..and more often than not, the school which emerges the best is the school which they considered best before the rush began..as everybody is on the same boat and asking others for directions…

but what is a best school nevertheless?..i am asking this question to myself for so long now as i am one RAT of this race to school…An answer from me would have been: the best school is the one which not only imparts fundamental knowledge but also makes my kid learn INCLUSIVENESS and SENSE of BELONGING..

but is this what schools are imparting now a days?..most of the school forms i filled wanted information about my education, my status in society, my salary and many other questions about my child upbringing and blah blah..for example, few question left me bemused and really confused that how these question will judge me? aren’t these questions to be answered ideally every time..

for example what could a father answer a question like :how would you contribute to growth of your child? i wanted to answer: really, i thought an admission at your school was good enough!!!

another Gem of the question: as parents, our aspirations for our child are…
i again stopped short of writing : i want my child to be the BEST GOON of my Society so that nobody dares to poke into my matter.

one more: what values do you want to inculcate in your child?..
i wanted to scream really..what values does any parent want in his/her child…is;nt the answer to this question known to you already, or will you impart only that value which i want and keep others for other kids.

and the best one..how would you handle if your child cannot cope-up with school work?? WHOA!! so there are great chances that they turn my child an IMBECILE..I am still thinking of the answer..what will i do?.

jokes apart, on a serious note,whatever i say, whatever i feel and whatever i want my child to imbibe from d school, the truth is this and my kid will be a part of this education system sooner…

and i end this with these lines from SADHGURU:..

“Right now, the whole education process is just about survival. Education should not be about survival. It should be about broadening your horizons. Because people have become so mad about their economic status, we have twisted education into a way of milking money from the world. This has to change. If one keeps his intelligence uncluttered, wherever you put him he will survive. We want to produce not just loving, wonderful adults, but very resilient adults. Even if you put him in hell, he should slowly convert it into heaven”
