Purpose of human life....





Our life is a journey and during this entire journey one can't stop even for a while. This entire journey is not just a matter of  failure or success..... In fact it begins  with the birth and continues till one die... Does it mean that the aim of the life is to simply move on till our death.....No, it can't be....!!!

Then what is the meaning of this entire journey...???
Actually when I think about it, I find that starting from childhood...Adolescence...youth and then getting old...all is set...and at any point of time if someone try to remain in any of these stages then its just not possible...absolutely not possible.....

Now my idle mind is thinking that if every thing and every stage of our life is set by
nature then how to make our life meaningful and valuable...??? Because simply living the whole span of life is in no way an achievement, In fact its a natural process and every living thing on this earth lives its span of life....So what we as a human should do to make this journey valuable...???

At times, for fulfilling our dreams and getting our ambitions achieved, we just keep on running behind the goal and while running blindly into this race, we just don't notice that when n how our VALUES...MORALS and IDEALS have started losing its breath.....

So, can there be an end of our dreams....our ambitions...???

Well, I personally feel that its always necessary to have some control over our ambitions....Now one may argue that to succeed one should have ambitions and i do agree that one must be ambitious butttttttt my point is he/she should never be overambitious.

Actually one must learn the technique to resist him/herself from entering into the blind race of  life kn this materialistic age because our life is precious and its not at all to simply run behind goals blindly.... In fact during this entire journey there has to be some space for satisfaction, so that our VALUES....MORAL and IDEALS remain intact and at no stage of life they start feeling breathlessness......


So in my view the purpose of life(apart from different beliefs or religious explanations)  is to complete this journey with integrity without damaging our Values, Morality and Ideals.

Old vs Youth....



While going through the newspaper I found it surprising and difficult to believe, that someone like Mr. Digvijay Singh is talking about active participation of youth in Indian politics by replacing older lot of politicians. After further going into the news it was clear that his statement came in a function where he was trying to establish his own son into politics. So in a way he was pleading in favour of his son and not for the entire youth of the country. However this is a separate debate because this post is not about dynastic politics rather its about the "Youth vs Old in Indian politics". So for the moment his statement regarding active participation of youth into governance needs to be taken as face value.

If you look at the current Lok Sabha its average age is 53yrs and this is a matter of concern because such leadership can hardly be expected to address the aspirations of a country which has got the largest youth population in the world.

Let me make it clear here that neither I am against these oldies nor I am questioning their administrative qualities and abilities, undoubtedly most of them are well experienced and highly qualified. In fact we should not forget that these people have the biggest thing to provide to the youngsters and that is their experience but what they lack is the desire to change attitude, where as our youth's biggest strength is their desire to change attitude.

Now if there are only youth in politics then things are going to suffer from lack of experience and hence repeating same mistakes that had been made earlier..... On the other hand if there are only old people then we may have to face a "No Action" like situation where lot of ideas may dwell upon problems rather than taking action with full of energy and determination.

Hence instead of arguing for youth or old, it has to be both...... The plus point in proper combination of both into governance can have two kinds of people working together.....i.e

1 ) YOUTH : Full of energy and enthusiasm to take any action with full determination.
2 )  OLD     : Having heaps of experience from past events.

Therefore for the upliftment of the nation, the old age people as well as youth should work together. They should co-operate and understand one another.

In fact its not only the Lok Sabha but we should have a right mix of young people in every department of the government organisations, because the old people can provide inputs and give feedback on how exactly the system works and the young can implement the same and take risks as they have age on their side.

Moreover by having proper blend of both, at least a signal would be sent across the youth of this country to come forward and take steps in the right direction to lead the country.

After the break.....

Hello Friends,

It is more than three months that I am posting something here at my blog. In fact yesterday when I logged into my blog, I found my lonely blog screaming for some attention.

Actually it was not that i was very busy doing some important assignments or I didn't wanted to write anything....To be honest after each exhausting day when I was lying down in bed, I used to think about writing something....Something about ongoing events around me, but couldn't do so, and the lone reason for this long break from blogging was that I didn't feel like writing..... 
I felt out of groove.....
Out of touch with reality.....

Just to let you all know that the only thing I did during this break is "moved into a new house".... And you all may agree that "moving can be and in most cases is a big step for most of us"..... It is a change in the environment around us..... Almost everyone love to move into a new house. Its exciting to meet new friends and neighbors, add fresh paints and create some do it yourself decorations......

Butttttttt moving is also one of the hardest thing to do....You get a strange feeling when you are about to leave a place because you will not only miss the people around you but you will also miss the person you are now at this place.....because you will never be this way ever again.....

Heyyyy....Are you still there with me...??? I know this post has become all about me and probably little boring as well. But at times we can choose to be little self indulgent....isn't it..???  
Moreover I didn't know how to start after this long break......

To be honest, I am scared to look at my blog, fearing all the fellow bloggers to have given up on me...And there is nothing more scary than a blogger without supportive and kind fellow bloggers, who actually give their valuable time to read and comment.... 

I just wish n pray that you all are still there with me and reading "Apniboli" same way as you were doing before this unusual break.......

Will be back soon...
Take Care....
