Where do you think you're heading?

As i stay up one night, my head, as usual, wanders into endless thoughts. One thought strikes me real hard. What exactly am i doing with my life? This question kept lingering at the back of my head. I am quite used  to these kind of thoughts that get stuck in my head. But this one was different. I couldn't quite wrap my head around getting my way around it. 

We all live in a world where we are so caught up with getting through with each day's worries. But Hey! Slow down! Take a moment. Breathe! Where the heck do u think you're heading? 

Why do you run around taking on so much worry when you don't know where you're heading to? You might think you have your future all mapped out. oh yeah you're struggling so hard : probably trying hard to get  through school, survivng university and some others; to just get a damn job with the single motto of earning enough money to live each day in a mediocre lifestyle( cause otherwise u just might end up on the streets!).  And there are still many who want to be famous or better yet earn more they can imagine. (Find themselves in the forbe's list?)
And as the question lingers on, i question my friend. And his reply stunned me. I asked him what he thought he was gonna do with the rest of his life. My friend, like most of the others(i bet) wants to find himself in a position where he can have enough money so he would be a millionaire. Well, honestly i am so opposed to materialism so i wouldn't agree with him. Hence i further questioned him. I ask him isn't it enough to earn so much so that u can just survive life and why do u need to earn more? Well he's as brainwashed as many others about me. According to him Money talks. In his defence, he says that money can do wonders. Money can buy you things. It can get you everything you want. And most of all he says, 'it earns you respect'. Well in my opinion, this is such a big misconception in people's minds. According to him, the money one accumulates leads to the building of a certain fame. Works the same way as a brand image. It keeps getting bigger and bigger. According to him, the more money a man posesses the more respect he earns. What a crazy idea! And then i ask him what happens once you are all dead and gone. True you might be remembered for a few years down the lane but after that you're just gonna end up as the guy who lived on the street. Dead and gone to the same place he's gone. So what was the use? We all know for a fact we are gonna die. There is absolutely no way of stopping that from happening. So what's the difference if you live on as the richest man on the planet or the middle class man? There's absolutely no way a man will be satisfied with the money he has. Man always craves for more. That's how the system has been formed.The more money you have, the more desires you have.

Food for thought. 'Nough said.

Realists & Dreamers

So I came across this while watching an episode of modern family and it really got me thinking. I'm just gonna quote the lines below:
"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground."

Yea well people might be divided broadly into two categories: You are either a Realist or a Dreamer, An Optimist or a Pessimist.

I consider myself a Realist. A Realist is a person who considers every aspect to a situation before making a decision. It's not that he is afraid to dream ; just that he realises that sometimes the dreams may be too far fetching. He could be termed as a pessimist. We are those kind people who only dive into stuff after  thinking about it a million t…

Brown Family Problems #2

And continuing from my previous post..
Dowry as I said earlier is kind of like a price tag. You hit the bull's eye when you get your target right on the money. It's quite a debated topic with a lot of laws in place to abolish the practice of accepting dowry; but that's all just in paper. In order to come into effect it's gonna take a long time. It basically means changing the mindset of a chunk of society which can be quite the challenge.

Another thing about Indian marriages or so would be the qualification of the bride and groom. If the bride is a doctor then she can only get married to a doctor. Equally important is your religion or caste. Getting married to a person not from the same caste or religion is like the biggest sin anyone could commit.If  He/she proceeds with a marriage of such sort, they would bring on themselves the shun of society and family. The family would practically disown you and kick you out. Trust me I am not exaggerating when I say disown. Its v…

Fate or Destiny?

It's probably the most debated topics out  there. One always wonders whether he lives a life that is just his fate's way or is he living his destiny.
Now there is, quite a big difference between fate and destiny. Essentially they are opposite in meaning.Fate is something bad or rather negative in nature. On the other hand, Destinyis positive. Fate is what happens on its own. It's unpredictable and the course of its nature cannot be changed. It happens regardless of what you might think or do. Whereas destiny is what you make of life. Everyone can chose their destiny. It's all the result of their choices over a period of time.

I'm a staunch believer. I believe God is the reason for my existence and survival. So in between the fate and destiny, there's one big person that actually determines your life. And that is God. You might think it's karma when u start suffering.  But in fact all that wouldn't happen if God did not want it to happen in your life.
