HAPPINESS AND POSITIVITY NOTES


Somehow this world seems to be a more beautiful place every time I listen to Coldplay . I will soon be sharing my list of hand-picked  favourite music that keeps me more alive ever week . Sometimes it really upsets me that people these days don’t stop for a moment to fix their eyes on something beautiful , or just stand still and get lost when a good music is turned . I mean why can’t people just loose themselves in beautiful things . Tyler Kent White said , ” I promise that if you keep searching for everything beautiful in this world , you will eventually become one.” Such beautiful words put together . I have grown to realise that we become what we focus on . Where our mind wanders is where we truly belong and who we truly are . In my opinion unselfconscious moments are the best . Real art is created only when one looses their mind in something infinite . Yet  people these days are so concerned about the other person’s approval to find what they want and be what they want to be . The sole purpose of our existence is to shine . Not like him or her , or that person or this person , but shine in our own way . Uniqueness definitely exists when one starts believing they are capable of producing something beautiful , not with the cheap intension to please anybody else , but to please oneself first .

Choose your medium of  Art and bring out what is there in your mind . There’s always gonna be people who are gonna trash it, but if it soothes your own soul then it is definitely worth creating . Everything honest and vulnerable is always  worth exhibiting out to the world .

I SURVIVE BECAUSE OF ART


I survive because of Art . I really do , and maybe that’s the only thing that has given me the reason to live . I live to listen to all the great music in this world , to read great literature , to get lost in  a piece of painting  , and to fall in love with beautiful minds . And my soul is obliged to create some form of art , doesn’t really matter if its good or shabby . Nobody chooses to become an artist . It’s not an option one could pick and live that way . Art hits everybody in some point of time in all our lives , some notice it , consume and choose art as their means to live , while others fail to notice it’s magic .

I have this shift in music genre for the past couple of months . I am madly in love with Indie music . It’s funny because people who make Indie music don’t get noticed much . Clear proof that there is so much beauty in this world , yet not everybody notices it . Guess I’m the lucky one . Nothing ever feels so much better than being so close to good music and the words running inside my head .

I shall keep these things close , I shall keep beautiful souls close , and I shall always dream big and beautiful no matter how many times I fall . I have a reason to live . And so do you  .

RAISE YOUR VOICE AGAINST CHILD LABOUR


I recently read an article written by Kailash Satyarthi ,( children’s rights advocate and activists who also won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize ) on the never ending issue- Child labour . If you are in India you can almost see in every single shop, starting from a tea shop to decent malls  more than one boy or a girl below the age of 18, working for very minimal wages ,when they actually should be in school studying .

In spite of all the voices raised by activists who fight against child labour , this scenario in India either keeps sustaining or growing day by day . If you think about it , a family who decides to skip school and send their children to work are in no way helping themselves or their children.  Whatever the children earn through those dog jobs are not gonna help them secure their future , they are in no way growing their skills or knowledge , and they are in no way gonna provide sufficient amount of money to their family . I see kids working in some local shops and they are treated worse than street dogs . I keep wondering , why can’t one man or woman who has enough money , going on road trips and foreign vacations pledge to educate at least one child in their lifetime . I really feel that a child is truly born only when one is given the gift of education .

It is definitely not  enough if only one man or a group of people decide to bring down child labour . This is a social responsibility , and every single person should be aware that child labour is a crime . It is like robbing one whole future from a child’s life . In what way is it gonna help the kid ?? If one kid works as a child labour , he will end up without an education , and without any education that child will grow up to become a poor adult , and that adult will have kids one day and those kids will go working for minimal wages too . This seems like a cycle .  The same thing goes around and comes back around . In india people with no education are fooled terribly by the government and even by the people they meet on a daily basis . They have no values , they have no higher perspective , they know nothing big and great to wish upon . A child without an education is still a child . But when that same child becomes an adult one day, that is when their life turns to get like a trash can . And the girls are sent to beg ?? How much worse can this get . I see their faces and they have no idea what they are doing . They grow up knowing no values and with no idea that education matters .

Said that this is a social responsibility ,nobody should hire a young kid to work for them . This is like the second biggest mistake , the first being the parents who are so willing to send them to work . But what will those parents do right ?? What do they know about education ? How will they know that education can change their child’s life ?? To make all this straight and clear , literally every single person holds the responsibility to fight against child labour . It is every single person’s responsibility to raise their voce against child labour .

I just hope all the citizens of india , starting from the parents especially realise that their child deserves an education . Issues like religion  or god , and sex identity , racism and all these crap should just be removed from the minds of every single human. What really and truly exists is just two things – Love and Education.

ART , WEEKEND LINKS AND THE ROYAL BABY


One of the best things I admire in people who belong to Art is that they literally loose themselves in their craft . And the more I get closer , and the more I indulge myself in writing , words and music , I am starting to realise what a beautiful feeling it is to completely get lost in what you love day in and day out . If it really means that much to you , bleed for your art if you have to . It is definitely worth bleeding for . Go to every extent possible to know about your craft . Breathe and live your art . And one day you will eventually become one .

ANYTHING THAT GIVES YOU PLEASURE , DO IT .


If you think about it , our time on this planet is very very limited  . Look around you , there’s always so much to learn , so much to take it with you , so much to admire , so much to love , and so much to dream about . I’ve noticed that people who are really happy with their life as a whole are the ones who are very much aware about what they should do to grow their soul . We do not live in a planet where there is very little to do.

There’s always abundance of things and moments that will either makes us happy or make us gloomy . Start choosing people , moments and things that will make you happy . You are never gonna get another time better than “NOW” to truly revel on the things that makes you happy .

Find your passion. Try your darnedest to find what you are passionate about . And without a slight hint of fear or hesitation go for it  like a psychopath. Do only the things that make you happy . You’ve got this one good life , and it is your duty , and yours alone to make is as amazing as possible . What is that you like o do?? Painting ?? Photography ?? Writing ?? Starring at a piece of painting for an unusually long time ??? Fishing ?? Reading for hours and hours ?? Having an intellectual conversation ?? Go for it and do it . If it shivers you to life , if it blows your mind away , if it makes you feel completely out of this world , then it is definitely worth doing.

Doing what you love every single day should become a part of you life , a part of your lifestyle. Things actually get beautiful once we decide to make our life beautiful .  I’ve realized that , “Nothing is more fulfilling in life than doing what you love .
