Frnds, Last month while travelling back to my home from Bhubaneshwar, I boarded my train at about 11.30 PM. Fortunately it was a lower birth for me( my favorite one ), and when I got  myself settled, there comes a lady, smiling at me and telling " Can you plz go to my upper birth?" 
No doubt her smile was good, but at that moment my lower birth was much more relaxing to me than her smile, so I turned down her request politely. After a few moment again she started telling " I am a lady, so can't you compromise for me plz ?" ........ and finally to make her comfortable, I had to compromise with my comfort.

Now frnds, purpose of narrating this story is to come to the subject i.e."Compromise".....
I just hate this word, bcoz this is what I have been doing through out life...... in fact not only me, as and when all of you do this In your life.

What you think ?... Forget about that, just listen to others thought, life will be smooth.

What You like ?... Just don't care about that, Compromise, Smile and tolerate, you will become a favorite.

What you want ?... Don't bother about that, make some compromises, you will sail smoothly in life.

Frnds, after a lot of compromises for the sake of life, relations, Love, respect etc.etc., I forgotten who I am ?

After making all these adjustments and compromises, I may be a nice guy in the eyes of family and friends, but in the long run, I feel, I lost myself. Because of my compromises I may be the favorite person, but that does not bring back the loss of my own personality.

Some times you may console yourself that because of the compromises or adjustments you made, in return you got a loving family or a satisfactory career , but over all you will find you lost the race.

You may say that, to win some you have to loose some. No doubt we all do compromises, and you must do, but only if it is necessary and not just for the sake of others satisfaction.

MAKING COMPROMISE.... Do you know what it means literally ?
so never endanger the reputation while making compromises.

  1. Its really true that compromise makes a person favorite of all but he forgets himself....and i totally agree that compromise only when it is necessary....but to lead a happy life we have to compromise

  2. @srt... thnx for reading the stuff...u r rite 4 happy life we hav to the question is "how much nd how long one should do that???"

  3. We all want a perfect life...but in the end we all have to compromise with life,family,love,friends and career...i believe its an ongoing things as long as one lives on mother earth....only thing i will add that while making compromise the practicality of the adjustment in today's world should be kept in mind...but if making some concessions can help our family / friends then one should definitely do that...however it should neevr be on self respect....we can be on a high or low while making adjustemnts but i believe life itself is adjustments and everybody does it....but we should definetely do someting to pursue our dreams....

    bhyia someting on significane of education and religion in our life if you get time..

  4. @zahid.....very analytical & clear u r on this...i totally agree wid u here... bt sometime wht happens, in the process we just neglect ourself and get distracted 4m our own dreams.... will try to post one on ur suggesion.... TAKE CARE.

  5. wow..grt bablu bhaiya ur NEXT CHETAN BHAGAT.ur writing skill is 2 gud.
    i think if v want a perfect or smooth life v hv 2 compromise at d very stage of life....wid family.friends,or wid ur life partner nd i didnt seen its wrong.coz wid little compromise v lead our life smoothly,widout create ne tension.if v dont compromise,life 'll be miserable,nd its difficult 2 lead.
    ya but sumtime its difficult 2 compromise or adjust....but wat v do ,v hv 2...its life nd life itself is compromise

  6. @Rahila..."Life itself is compromise..." hhmmmm..
