Thoughts For Life

A Fantastic Talk Given by MR MURTHY today at IIT.

What do we all seek ?

Indeed it is SUCESS but what is success to you ?

Is it to gain millions and buy a Ferrari ? or is it to happily run your family just for daily means by running your small scale business?

Maybe you have a family business and you are growing it and expanding it.

But what is success ?

Is it gaining lots of knowledge ? Is it gaining lots of money ? Is it having a lot of stuff in your house or work ?
Is it having a lot of money in your bank or more Jewellery and Gold in your locker ?

What is more ? What is Enough ? What is more to you may be less to the other . So how do you define magnitude ?

What do you Define yourself as ? and what do you let other people see you as ? Do you accept the personality that is held of yourself ? If not , are you taking the right steps to change that personality of yours in the eyes of the world ? .

Remember that none of us know our Death Date . We just know our BIRTH DATE . Death is Definite but Stages in Life aren’t . So Work as if it is like the last day of your life . Do not delay because the last you know ;Your Eyes Will Shut & You may be dead before you materialise your plans into action. Think & Act now This Moment . Make the most of it . Do not regret as it is worst than a bullet hitting you hard on your chest . Time Once Passed Can Never Be brought Back.

Be creative . Be distinctive . Be Different. If People Call You Crazy, You are on the Right path, If you are not different you will not stand out. If you do not stand out , nobody will observe you. Do Not Be a trend ; Start a trend . Do not follow a trend and be a sheep. Fill that void. Be A Leader .

Remove the word “TRY” from your dictionary. It is either YES or No . When you say TRY it is the midway .

I am not what I am . I am evolving . We need to evolve . Daily . By saying that you are wrong . I am not right .

By saying I am tired and need to slow down , the world will not slow down for you. Time is running fast and it is you who needs to cope up with it , If I am weak I should immediately hand over the baton to the next proven in line to carry on the legacy and continue with something else which gives me peace . World has seen many Kings and Queens come and Go & I am just a Human and soon I too will Perish .Keeping things to myself will not make me great but weaken my legacy.

Distribution of tasks is very necessary to the right people or else your biggest a plans & Empire will fall down like a pack of cards and your years of efforts will drain in Vain and you will not even have time to Cry about it .

Gain Enough Experience in life in the task you you wish you Excel and then prove your skills by innovating it to a better level.

Do not hinder in others work or let them down due to jealously. Life will slap you right at your face & you will not even realise that . Why do I say so ? You will see it clearly with your own eyes . Last you know it is whom you think to be against you will teach you the most through his/ her actions. Keep Your Eyes Open to learn from LIFE , it will teach you more than your school teachers.

Be Empathetic , Give , Donate and Open A Charitable trust Life is better when you give to others and not when you BUY , BUY & BUY for yourself , GIVE , DONATE and do not look back for results Lord will reward you , Have a clean heart .

LISTEN , just don’t keep blabbering & act as a MR KNOW IT ALL , the person who talks the most is not the wisest one but who listens and grasps to what others have to say and acts correctly goes far ahead than the one who keeps yapping.

Do not Underestimate Anybody . You may never know you may land up doing business with the one you considered a looser in life & he will be the more successful one.

Do not believe in any work to be small I still do a lot of daily chores on my own even sweeping on my own if needed . It does not make me a sweeper but it makes my sweeper believe that he was slow for his work when he watches his boss sweeping .

It is very important to learn from people’s Actions . Sociology is a key player in business .

The Key point is , do not just think about making money , yes money is a vital part for surviving in a society . Think about how you can use your money for the benefit for not just your family but for your society too . Do not just live for yourself but live a life which others inspire to live like . Be an Inspiration not just an abbreviation , Be a motivation and not just a simple God’s Creation . We all breathe , eat and sleep daily that is normal but doing something unique is what makes us special . Do Something Which Leaves a Legacy Behind for your Name to Be Remembered.

Do Not Be A BEGGAR in FRONT OF ALMIGHTY GOD. DO NOT SAY , WHY CAN’T I HAVE THIS , WHY DID THIS HAPPEN, I WANT THIS I WANT THAT. PLEASE THANK HIM, HE HAS GIVEN YOU MORE THAN ENOUGH. THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE DEPRIVED OF THE LITTLE THINGS WHAT YOU HAVE WHICH YOU OFTEN NEGLECT & DO NOT OBSERVE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE .

Have Faith , Believe and Keep Patience . Pray , be religious and be righteous .

Health is Wealth. If you SMOKE stop smoking , If you DRINK stop drinking If you chew Tobacco Stop Chewing it . It is not difficult , your Brain is stronger than you think, Wrong vices will kill you in not just health but wealth too and not forgetting to mention , these vices WILL KILL YOUR FAMILY TOO.

WHY IS INDIA DEVELOPING ?

IT IS BECAUSE OF US. WE ARE TO BE BLAMED. NOT HIM, NOT HER NOT THE POLITICIANS , NOT THOSE CORRUPT Bureaucrats. IT IS US.

WHY US ? BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARE. IF YOU NEED THE CHANGE BE THE CHANGE DO NOT BLAME HIM OR HER OR ANYBODY THAT BECAUSE OF HIM THIS HAPPENED OR THIS COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.

DO IT ! DO IT NOW ! DO IT YOURSELF ! AND PROVE THE OTHERS WRONG !

WE INDIANS TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED VERY EASILY. “ SAB KUCH CHALEGA”

WHY “CHALEGA”

WHY ARE SO MANY INDIANS LEAVING INDIA AND SETTLING OVERSEAS FOR A BETTER LIFE ?.

WHY DO WE DANCE AT EVERY FESTIVAL AND BURN THE MONEY AS IF IT IS ETHICAL TO DO SO ? WHEN THAT SAME MONEY CAN BE CONTRIBUTED TOWARDS HEALTH AND EDUCATION ?

LOOK AT THE STATE OF OUR COUNTRY ! JUST LOOK AT US! ARE WE PROUD TO BE INDIANS ? ARE WE ?

SPENDING HOURS IN TRAFFIC IN ALL METRO CITIES, POOR UNPLANNED CITIES , ALL BECAUSE OF SELFISH REASONS OF MULTIPLE POWERFUL PEOPLE THAT CO-EXIST WITH US IN THIS SOCIETY.

YOU CANNOT GET YOUR RATION CARD ON TIME, YOU CANNOT GET YOUR VOTER’S I.D CARD ON TIME , YOU CANNOT GET YOUR AADHAR CARD ON TIME. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CLEANLINESS IN OUR COUNTRY , THE GOVERNMENT HOSPITALS AND INSTITUTIONS ARE WORSE THAN TOILETS .

INDIAN RAILWAYS ONE OF THE LARGEST RAILWAY NETWORKS IN THE WORLD IS ONE OF THE WORST I MAY SAY. I THINK ONE IN TEN OF THE PASSENGERS COME OUT INFECTED FROM THE TRAIN THEY TRAVEL IN INDIA . THERE IS ABSOLUTE NO SANITY.

AND WE EXPECT OUR BRIGHT YOUNG MINDS TO WASTE THEIR TALENT IN THIS FILTHY COUNTRY ! WHERE POLITICIANS JUST LIVE IN THE LIMELIGHT AND DRIVE THE PUBLIC CRAZY. TILL YESTERDAY IT WAS GANDHI AND MODI NOW SUDDENLY IT IS MR KEJRIWAL NEXT YOU KNOW IT WILL BE SOMEBODY ELSE. BUT WEATHER IT IS ANYBODY TO COME , WE NEED A LEADER WHO CAN BE INSPIRED FROM AND WHO JUST DOES NOT TALK, BUT DOES WHAT HE SAY. AS I SAID EARLIER , PEOPLE LOVE TO TALK, BUT WHO DOES AND PRODUCES RESULTS IS THE WINNER !

JUST LOOK AT THOSE INTERNATIONAL CITIES, LOOK AT THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE, HERE WE ARE DANCING AT THE OPENING OF A NEW TERMINAL IN MUMBAI , BUT HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO FRANKFURT OR TO DUBAI ? JUST HOW BLIND CAN YOU BE ? WE CANNOT EVEN COMPLETE A SIMPLE FLYOVER LIKE THE SEA LINK AND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT GROWTH GROWTH GROWTH , INDIA SHINING BLAH BLAH BLAH ! WHAT INDIA SHINING, WHAT MUMBAI WILL BECOME SHANGHAI , THIS ALL IS NONSENSE. WHAT CAN BE DONE, CAN BE DONE , BUT THERE ARE REAONS ABOVE ALL TO DELAY AND DELAY TILL EVERYONE STARTS LIVING WITH THE COMPROMISE.

WE ARE LIVING IN A HYPOCRETICAL SOCIETEY WHERE PEOPLE LOVE TO FLAUNT IN THEIR ROLLS ROYCE BUT WILL THROW THEIR GARBAGE OUT OF THEIR VERY SAME WINDOWS. THERE IS A MALFUNCTION IN THE SYSTEM AND A LOT OF CLEANING NEEDS TO BE DONE.

DO NOT GET ME WRONG, INDIA IS NOT A BAD COUNTRY WE DO HAVE A LOT OF FLAVOUR AND CULTURE , BUT DO WE PRESERVE IT ? LOOK AT OUR MONUMENTS AND PLACES OF INTERESTS ? ARE THEY MAINTAINED WELL ? WHERE DOES ALL THE MONEY GO?

EVEN REPUTED INSTITUES LIKE IIT HAVE NOT BEEN MAINTAINED WELL AND CRORES OF RUPEES JUST GO IN VAIN.

WE HAVE LOST THE VALUE OF “VALUE” AND HAVE STARTED TAKING A LOT OF THINGS FOR GRANTED .

WE NEED TO CORRECT OUR NEURO SYSTEM AND LIVE LIKE HUMANS .

I REQUEST YOU ALL TO NOT BE A SHEEP AND FOLLOW THE MEDIA AND THE NEWS BUT I WANT YOU ALL TO USE YOUR MIND AND EVALUATE ,

LIFE IS MUCH MORE THAN WATCHING A CRICKET MATCH OR A TELEVISION SOAP OR A MOVIE . IT IS A WONDERFUL LEARNING EXPERIENCE.

BE WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW MORE THAN YOU AND LOVE TO SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY HAVE THIS WAY YOU WILL LEARN MORE IN LIFE. QUIT STAYING WITH NEGATIVE PERSONALITIES.

DO NOT GOSSIP , IT IS A WASTE OF TIME.

KNOWLEDGE IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE PACKED AWAY IN SOME CORNER OF OUR BRAIN BUT WHAT ENTERS INTO OUR BEING COLOURS AND EMOTIONS HAUNTS OUR SOUL AND IS AS CLOSE TO US AS LIFE ITSELF IT IS THE OVER MASTERING POWER WHICH THROUGH THE INTELLECT MOULDS THE WHOLE PERSONALITY TRAINS THE EMOTION AND DISCIPLINES THE WILL.

SO GAIN AS MUCH KNOWLEDGE AS YOU CAN AND TRAIN YOUR BRAIN !

Two Kinds of Legacy

When you die, your possessions will be distributed according to a will in which you allocated property to specific people. Objects left in a will are called a legacy.

But “legacy” also has a much deeper meaning.

In Jewish tradition, people write “ethical wills” in which they pass on to the next generation, especially their children,the gift of wisdom and good wishes. This legacy is far more profound and permanent than bequests of property.

An ethical will is often a personal letter to the most important people in our lives. It conveys our values, convictions and hopes. An ethical will is also an autobiography – not of events and dates, but of the insights and intuitions that define who we are and tell the world what we stand for and what we think is important.

These documents provide a priceless and prized source ofloving advice and can become treasured family heirlooms. Because they are about ethics, they also can become a moral compass that helps loved ones navigate their way to worthy and happy lives.

Yet no matter how highly cherished these letters can be for those who receive them, the process of writing them can change your perspective and cause you to readjust your own priorities.

What would you put in your ethical will? When you can, begin writing down everything you might want to pass on tothe people you love. But know this: Once you start, it will be hard to stop as you’ll experience a surge of thoughts that will engulf you with all the subconscious beliefs that make you who you are and what you will be.

According to Socrates, the touchstone of wisdom is to first know thyself. Try it, and you’ll see why.

 

Flobots- Handlebars (Diving in to the inner meaning of this song)

Referring to my last post “Are we all Insane to just believe what you say? “ , I had said that I will be posting some more articles reflecting on how I feel powerful nations just like to dominate the other nations through their mediums, and one song which i heard around a year ago , by flobots -handlebars, shows what I intend to say. Have a look at the video below.

I am sure most of you have understood the inner meaning of this song , and agree with this bigger picture that USA is just dominating other small nations by using its power.

Do we all keep seeking Spice in our lives ?

Just switch on your television set, and scroll down to any news channel on the planet, it will for at least 15 minutes offer you one piece of BREAKING NEWS.

Often , most of this news is repetative, and makes no point, but most of us want that Spice. We want to learn about a new WAR, about new Tragedies, Murder, Gossip, & much more.

DO WE SEEK MORE & MORE SPICE IN OUR LIVES , & KEEP SEEKING FOR GOSSIP ALL THE TIME ?

I just log on to the internet and get the highlights of the daily news, because watching the news on television is like watching a set of hypnotists trying to brainwash you about a certain product, or a community or a whole country.

Still there are numerous news channels born each day , challenging to offer the most updated news, and the fastest news, well I am sure most of it is just made up news to sell the SPICE!

What are your comments and opinions about this ?

– Mustafa Mun

Please stop judging me ! I am not what you think I am !

There are all kinds of people in this world. There are one kind whom I do not like interacting much are those who go around giving their opinion on the basis of faith, culture,religion,money,ethics and various factors , terming someone as a good or a bad person.

Nobody in this world can be categorised as good or bad completely according to my opinion. Nobody.  Even a person who is a thief cannot be categorised as a bad person , just because he has stolen your stuff. Well of course he is a bad person for stealing your valuables and running away, but he has done that for his family , maybe ; or some other reason , but the underlying point of this debate is that you just cannot  come to a conclusion saying someone is evil or bad. I am not talking on behalf of all the thieves in the world or all “bad” , “evil ” people . I am saying this because I undergo this feeling while having debate about religion with people, and it comes to a point where I just keep my mouth shut and listen to what they say or else just leave the room.

People in my opinion do not go to heaven or hell just because of following the prophets or the holy books teachings, nor by visiting the holy places of worship. I am not an Atheist, but I am just an ordinary person who has a strong faith, and I believe that a person can be both just simple and not religious but still be worthy enough to step on the floors of heaven.

People often argue by saying that if you do not pray on time , or visit your holy places of worship you do not communicate to God , and you do not make him happy. A lot of arguments have been on that one. Well I just ask myself , does God fix appointments to listen to your prayers? Why specific moments or specific holy places to hear our voices? Why Pilgrimages to affirm your faith and make sure he listens to you. He listens to you anyway. Everywhere.

When I was a kid , my teacher told me that you can pray anywhere you like son, on the bus, while climbing the stairs to school, in the class, before going to sleep, just anywhere you want, he listens to you , & its true. He does listen to you , and is there helping you at each step, you just have to realise and feel His presence.

People do get upset and often have a huge argument about this topic, which lasts for hours and sometimes days , even months. All I say is do not judge people on the basis of culture , religion or any other beliefs. A human being is too complex to judge or understand.

I have seen people change , people who the whole world termed good turn bad and the bad turn good, for some reason they do change. People who people term as bad, do a lot of things for charity , but nobody knows. People who do a lot of good, are bad behind the curtains of society. It is very hard to judge, very hard.

Just one advice to all , do not generalise, judge , or comment on anybody untill you know them 100% , and even if you do , and do make up your mind about them, I request you to think twice before making that thought permanent , this world and we humans are more wierd and unique than you can imagine. 🙂
