Some of the kindest acts are often done in silence.

So I know this kid, he is my childhood friend’s son. He likes to play with a close relative’s dog, Bounce, who lives down the same street. He goes to visit Bounce nearly daily. They both go crazy seeing each other.

However, one day he did not want to go meet Bounce. The reason he gave his mum … “When ever I have to return home, Bounce feels sad. He becomes quite and very sad. I cannot see him sad. I feel very bad for him, so, I won’t go see him today.” He eventually went to see Bounce the next day.

Hearing his mom tell me about such a young kid’s ’empathy’ and feelings, I thought, ‘He is a such a kind and mature heart at just 9, suppressing his own joy of being with friend Bounce, so that Bounce not suffer the sadness of their eventual parting. A really special soul.’ 💙

About being radically honest.

Some of us ‘fight’ (argue/differences of opinions) with our spouses, siblings and parents more than with our close friends, perhaps because we can be more radically honest to them about them than we can be even with our close friends. However, I think, most of us are more honest about ourselves with our close friends. So I am grateful for the family and close friends balance in life.

I think, nearly every day we attempt to build and add floors to the high-rise of our dreams.

 

 

Our family, they are the roof of every floor; a few of our friends, they become pillars between the floors; and those who support our non-profit endeavours, they are the beams.

Collectively, so many people support the architecture of our aims & ambitions and happiness.

Thank you for supporting our collective effort and aim – computer literacy (IT course) for a few differently abled & or visually impaired (blind) from this beautiful diwali to the next. 🙏

Happy Diwali

It’s important to say Sorry, most often.

It’s important to say Sorry, most often.
 
I sometimes make mistakes, as I act and react immediately out of intense emotion and, then, rightly and naturally so, I sometimes say sorry. to the person opposite… and then, I am told by them, my family or dear friends ‘”.. bro, chill, it’s okay ya, you don’t have to say ‘sorry’ for your action”’; maybe because they understand my deed or habit is unintentional and it’s not a big deal; yet I am glad they care enough to point out my improper action. Which I can explain but cannot possibly defend because what is wrong is wrong, period Thank you.
 
I believe, it’s very important to say ‘sorry’ even between very close friends, only because, if you are willing to say ‘sorry’ it conveys your humility in admitting you are wrong or have hurt someone’s feelings, moreover, it conveys you have empathy – that you have the sensibility of being able to put yourself in the shoes of another person for a moment and you felt how your improper/hurtful action/words/deed/ felt to that person.
 
Just saying, as it’s a lovely weekend. 🙂 Love.
