Happiness Mantra that works for all

Happiness has varied dimensions and definitions. It's an amazing emotion that cannot be measured on scale, neither it has any boundary, it's not dependent on only big events, it just doubles when you share. 

 

In real sense happiness is within one and all, we only need to erase that fine line that stops us most of the time to feel the real happiness.

 

Each one of us has some reason to be happy and it absolutely doesn't matter how big or small it is. Once we start tasting happiness in every little thing we do, we start living life to the fullest. 

 

Today we also have a reason to pamper ourselves as we are penning our 500th post. This is a beautiful coincidence that the happiness post is our 500th post as our blog always focuses on spreading happiness through its aura of positivity.

We sisters Meenal & Sonal are glad that the journey till date was beautiful with memorable moments to cherish for that inspire us to reach many more milestones in future.

It was fine sunny morning, and the time when Kriti was sipping a cup of tea, while reading newspaper. She had finished her morning chores, and Kamu her helper was washing utensils, when suddenly she heard; “I want to , I want to Maa”. Kriti folded newspaper and took her cup to walk to backyard where she saw Vishnu crying and pleading to his mother.

“I will go to school today Maa, I can’t be at home.” said Vishnu in a shivering voice.

 

“Why not, I will myself drop you there; you won’t miss the school” replied Kamu with a heavy heart.

7 reasons to add Moral Education period in Schools : #EducationForAll #CauseAChatter

We have always heard about how education is very important aspect of life. You can refer our previous posts to know how education helps and has importance in us in various walks of life. Knowledge of subjects and its application does complete our education at certain level or is there something else that is being not focussed. Is there an area of development of child that is being completely neglected. Let us say for example a Robotic Engineer will have all the learnings about the design, the AI systems and physics involved in building a robot so, we can say engineer is a well-educated successful person. 

 

But can we also assume that this robotic engineer also has qualities like responsible, sensible, open minded and good human being. No we cannot, for that we also need moral education to be part of our education system.

 

Schools in the rush to complete huge syllabus and focussing on sports and extra co-curricular activities the exclusive moral science period is not added in curriculum. And due to this there are many situations in life where a topper student also fail to understand simple or sometimes misses to understand basic human behavioural traits.

Mother Earth keeps her heart out on this #MothersDay

Mother Earth is recovering, healing, evolving and gleaming with new energy. Her flora and fauna got back their long lost homes. She is safe as bad radiations will not harm her. But she is not looking happy and content, she obviously cannot be. A mother wants to see her every child happy and prosperous.

The human race is on complete turmoil so how can she ignore her child as being a mother her heart pours for everyone. She is praying to heal the sufferings fast, but she is afraid that this arrogant child of her will ever understand the importance of her creation, will respect her or will take steps to protect her. 

Nevertheless her nature is to give, give equally to all. She can only hope that this time there will be transformation in thoughts and her child will emerge as a winner who will never let her mother weep again. These poetic lines expresses what Mother Earth feels about the changes in her and in her child (humans).

3 Pillars for Right Education : #EducationForAll #CauseAChatter


Education comes to us in varying forms and styles for example through formal learnings in class rooms and informal way through experiences of life. The learning curve progresses towards positive scale and allows us the power to judge what is right for us, for our family, for our society we live and our nation. 

Gaining knowledge is not a process that has some specific time frame, it walks with us throughout our life making us little by little educated. The three step process that can clear the haze of understanding the fine line between good and bad is to Accept, Adapt and Reflect. Education gives the power to control all the these.

In the third post in the series #EducationForAll with Blogchatter under #CauseAChatter let us focus on how these 3 steps can make a smooth sail in tough times of life as an individual and as society.

What is importance of EDUCATION in life: #EducationForAll #CauseAChatter

We are taking up #EducationForAll series for #CauseAChatter campaign of Blogchatter and in first post we will discuss the importance of education in our lives. This is the first post in this series and lets begin with the basics and the intent behind this topic.

What is EDUCATION:
Education teaches us how to respond to life situations with our knowledge and experience. We all will agree to this that wisdom gained from education can be applied in life though the lessons learnt are ages old. Real education is to impart knowledge to students to lead a happy and independent life. Isn’t we all want to implement what we learn and apply the same with a collaboration of like-minded people in an organisation or as an individual.

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” ~ Albert Einstein. What a profound thought by Albert Einstein that remains true till date. What we learn in formal education is just one part of the coin, the other part is to implement it through thoughts and actions. Education fills the void and makes it for use with a purpose. Finding purpose in life with education leads to enormous gates of opportunities. You need not be educated in a stream that is popular or just because your peer are choosing it instead one should be studying the stream where he/she can relate to an use the same in future.

But before we head to what one should opt and why, lets discuss importance of the same in our lives.
