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…

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar & Wagah Border Trip

Amritsar is the city of Golden Temple the sacred pilgrimage for Sikhs. The area around is recently developed beautifully to promote tourism by renovating it with related themes and including some modern day structures which compliment the place nicely. Historical Jalianwala Bagh where Britishers fired mercilessly on innocent Indians also lies in that area and it now has a monument as a remembrance to those who killed in that massacre. Another important thing in the area is Partition Museum build inside Town Hall which encloses memories of partition with having things donated by people effected by the tragedy along with the historical accounts of that time. But photography is not allowed inside the museum. 

I also visited Ranjit Singh Panorama Museum which housed weapons of Ranjit Singh army and has some depictions of Raja Ranjit Singh's life through painting and models. There is also Gobindgarh Fort which you must visit for the 7D film on life of R…

My Brother,My Role Model

My Brother,My Role Model

In the course of life it is not the one man or one moment which inspires to be better and the best but anyone you come across in your life teaches you something valuable. These lessons we learn from them improves our lives and make us better making these men our role model whom we tries to imitate.

When I was a child my families financial condition was not very good. My father suffered a huge loss in his business. One or the other borrower queues daily at our door for their money while we didn't have enough money to afford even food. My father was shattered, it was at that time my mother and brother stood for him. My brother leaved his study and started learning some work. He learned machine embroidery work in only four months for which others took a year or so to learn and then he started his own work with some financial support from my parents who at that time opened a grocery shop.

I was very young at that time but I still remembered that my brother ha…
