If There Is Hope, There Is Life.

If There Is Hope, There Is Life.

Life is nothing if there is no hope. A hope for the better future, a hope for a better home, a hope for a better car, a hope for a better life helps us to keep going without fail. We even overcome our failures if we have hope. Hope maintains optimism which in turn make life easier and spread positiveness in it not only for ourselves but also for those connected to us. 

Often in life we lose up if some misfortune happens in life and it sometimes becomes difficult to keep alive the hope in us. Once in such a situation I too was dejected and hopeless for some of my decisions which brought loss to me. It was the time when I felt solitary confinement for myself better than to face the world and people. I used to sit in parks or on benches around roads observing children playing, people talking and moving, cars coming and going but found nothing in these things for myself. All world appeared useless to me in those circumstances.

On one such day when I was lamenting my decisions sitting on a bench along the road which was also the pickup point for construction labors. People or contractors came there for masons or labors for the work on their construction sites or homes, they negotiated with few and select one according to their requirement and budget. I saw one labor negotiating for himself and when the deal was done, he insisted to take another labor whom he was suggesting in his place. The man found nothing wrong in it as both labors had same built. He took that labor instead with whom he had negotiated. I sat there for hours and observed that the labor who left his work for another one found no other work that day. As he was going back I stopped him and I asked whether he was repenting his decision of giving his work to someone else. He smiled and said that he was happy than sad because another labor for whom he left his job was his neighbor whose mother was ill and for whose medicine he didn't have money. He said that he could mange for that day but if his friend would not get that job than his friend wouldn't able to buy medicine for his mother.

After hearing him I realized that some of our decision if not beneficial to us were helpful for someone else. There is always a good in every bad and instead of finding that good we started cursing our bad luck. We must not lose hope for such decision and should not waste ourselves in repenting them but to learn from them and start again anew. An unknown stranger filled me with optimism and hope for a better future. It is this hope which runs this world , it is this hope which keep us alive.

World is full of hope and positiveness but only when we see it. Housing envisions a world filled with positivity. As elusive as it may seem, optimism can be found all around - in the laughter of children, in the excitement on your pet's face when you get back after a long day, and in the smile of your loved ones when you go back home after months of being away. Housing are bringing homes spreading optimism in the world.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Burning Bengal

Burning Bengal 
When the nation is in a fix with its relations with China the home is also not right as Bengal is burning from two sides. You can say that I am picking the topic late but I don’t want to spread the rumor without confirming all the sources which is giving news information. Here I should mention that don’t overreact on social media hypes until news are coming from authentic news agencies.
Basirhat communal violence which triggered with a controversial Facebook post by a class 11th student took an ugly turn when Muslim mobs started vandalizing properties of the Hindus but this is only the half story. The calm which prevailed after Thursday is revealing the story that many Muslims saved their Hindu friends and neighbors by confronting the mob. Hindu-Muslim groups are now helping those who have financial losses in shops/business to stand again by helping them with money (Read Indian Express front page of 9th July 2017). Locals knew that mob that attacked in their area were …

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
