65 کی پاک بھارت جنگ چل رہی تھی
ٹرین کا زمانہ تھا
اک ہائیکورٹ کے جج کو کسی دوسرے شہر جانا پڑگیا
درجہ اول میں سیٹ نہ ملی بحالت مجبوری درجہ دوم میں بیٹھ گیا
درجہ دوم میں مسافر بہت جذباتی اندازمیں جنگ کی باتیں کررہے تھے
سب اس بات پر قائل تھے انڈیا کی درگت بننے والی ہے
کسی نے جج صاحب کی طرف دیکھ کرکہا
صاحب پڑھے لکھے ہیں ,ان سے رائے پوچھتے ہیں
جج صاحب نے جواب دیا کہ چونکہ انڈیا اک بڑا /طاقتور ملک ہے جبکہ پاکستان چھوٹا
اسلئے ہم زیادہ دنوں تک لڑ نہیں سکتے
یہ سننا تھا کہ مجمعےنے جج صاحب کو "انڈین ایجنٹ" کہتے ہوئے پھینٹی لگادی

بڑی مشکل سے جج صاحب کو وہاں سے نکالا گیا
بعد میں کسی نے جج صاحب سے پوچھا کہ آپ نے اس سفر سے کیا سبق حاصل کیا؟
جج صاحب نے کہا میں نے اک بنیادی سبق سیکھا
وہ یہ کہ "فرسٹ کلاس کی باتیں سیکنڈ کلاس میں نہیں کرنی چاہئیے" 🤠😜

Don't remember who suggested this, but finally it's here & I'll share my thoughts

The Laws of Human Nature by @RobertGreene

"If only we understood the roots of human behaviour" @RobertGreene
in Laws of Human Nature

Do you think we would have more protection? Against falling down or being plowed over?

An interesting argument to understand our human nature before we as a race struggle to communicate

In 1888, in Curacao......

A bridge was built to connect two parts of the city. A toll tax was proposed but officials wanted it to be a "progressive" tax. They decided rich people will pay more to cross.

So how to identify rich and poor quickly?
They had an idea, rich people wear shoes ( it's 1888 remember), so they decided to charge a tax based on that. If you cross the bridge wearing shoes, you pay a tax, but if you are barefoot, you cross for free.

Difficult to avoid
Brilliant idea
But it failed.

The rich simply took off their shoes and crossed the bridge. (Tax Avoidance)

The poor?

They did not want to be seen as poor, so they would wear shoes or borrow shoes to cross the bridge.

This is a true story.

So what are the lessons?

1. Poverty is hidden yet visible.

1. It was #Holi on 11th March 1990 when I travelled from Jammu to Delhi. I’d unfamiliar faces, smells, sights, behaviours, language&environment around me.

I was traveling but I was not on a vacation. This was the second phase in my #Exodus journey #KashmiriHindu #MyStory
2. As we neared Delhi, some people started to lower the glass windows which I found puzzling as the weather was nice and breezy. But I soon realised it when I saw water balloons bursting on the window with coloured water designing the glass temporarily.
#Memories #LostChildhood
3. This was my 1st tryst with Holi celebrations. It was celebrated in Jammu but never in #Kashmir & it seemed fascinating to me as a kid. Since Jan 1990, we like lakhs of #Hindus from Kashmir had undergone immense mental, financial&psychological turmoil due to #IslamicTerrorism

एक बार अर्जुन ने कृष्ण से पूछा
"माधव,ये 'सफल जीवन' क्या होता है ?"
कृष्ण अर्जुन को पतंग उड़ाने ले गए।अर्जुन कृष्ण को ध्यान से पतंग उड़ाते देख रहा था।
थोड़ी देर बाद अर्जुन बोला-
माधव..ये धागे की वजह से पतंग अपनी आजादी से और ऊपर की ओर नहीं जा पा रही है,क्या हम इसे तोड़ दें?
ये और ऊपर चली जाएगी|
कृष्ण ने धागा तोड़ दिया ..
पतंग थोड़ा सा और ऊपर गई और उसके बाद लहरा कर नीचे आयी और दूर अनजान जगह पर जा कर गिर गई...
तब कृष्ण ने अर्जुन को जीवन का दर्शन समझाया,पार्थ..'जिंदगी में हम जिस ऊंचाई पर हैं,
हमें अक्सर लगता की कुछ चीजें, जिनसे हम बंधे हैं वे हमें और ऊपर जाने से रोक रही हैं; जैसे
घर परिवार
गुरू और
और हम उनसे आजाद होना चाहते हैं।

Heard Pullela Gopichand speak at #ARIA #ASPIRE event few hours ago.

One of the most heart warming and soulful sessions i have personally witnessed. Definitely we got much more than what we expected. Here are a few highlights from the session. #LifeLessons 0/n
1. Take good care of yourself - eat well, sleep well… think well. Do your journey well. Enjoy the process/journey. Be happy wherever the journey takes you - to success or failure. It really does not matter.
2. Be hungry at work, and happy at home. Dont mix the two. Learn to be happy and satisfied at home no matter what happens at work.

This MBA student from the US came for his summer vacation, with a plan to go back soon. But his dad sent him to Cochin to earn a living with 3 very stringent conditions.

1. He could only carry 3 pairs of clothes, and ₹7,000 (only for emergency use, not for expenses).
2. He could only work for a week at a place.

3. He could not reveal who he was.

Btw, the answer to the last part is that he is the son of a billionaire, Savji Dholakia, who owns a ₹6,000 crore diamond business.
The Surat-based business tycoon was in the news for gifting his 1200 employees with very jaw-dropping Diwali bonuses - including apartments and cars!

So, why such a harsh treatment for his son?

"I wanted him to understand life and how the poor struggle to get a job and money.

Deepika Padukone in Besharam, OH MAH..! I haven't watched it yet. But I watched Second Lt. Arun Khetarpal in Paramvir Chakra recently.

Late Second Lt. Arun Khetarpal (PVC) was 21 years old when he passed out from IMA & was commissioned into 17 Poona Horse of the Indian Army.
Just 6 months after his joining 1971 war broke out with Pakistan. He was undergoing the Young Officers’ Course at Ahmednagar at that time. He was recalled from the course and soon joined his unit to take part in the famous “Battle of Basantar” in the Shakargarh sector.
On 16 Dec that year, he had rushed to aid of his fellow soldiers, decimating several Patton tanks of Pakistan Army in his lone Centurion Mk 7 tank before he was grievously wounded. He was ordered to abandon his tank, but, realising that the enemy was still pressing forward,

Decorum is always valued and should be mandatory. Upbringing really matters. There is never any excuse for bad manners. #LifeLessons
People are not judged by their money or status. They are judged by their conduct. Money doesn’t buy class neither does success. #LifeLessons
Family is sacred. It is one’s private space. Those that diss their family in public simply exhibit bad upbringing. If one can’t be discreet, one is happy to plaster drama in public which is very distasteful.

Putting my hard-won Life Lessons into a thread

#LifeLesson #1
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.
- Maya Angelou

Often we're judgemental about people we don't know well & too willing to make excuses for those who are close to us
#LifeLesson #18
Always be a student. Always be a teacher.

True now more than ever

The old model of learning in school/univ & applying it for the rest of life won't work

We need to reinvent & relearn all thru life. Embrace it instead of resisting

Teach what YOU know.Mentor too
#LifeLesson #19
"You can't control the hand that's dealt to can only control how you deal with it"

Cribbing, crying, self-pity beyond a point, lead you nowhere

Do your best!
Look at the glass as half full

Remember: Happiness is the best revenge - on fate or people🥳

Do you know why most of us are majorly unhappy with our lives ?

Why do we constantly feel anxious or secretly envy others' life ?

Why do we feel unhappy despite having quite a few things going for us?

The answer is actually simple.... 🙂


It's because we humans constantly COMPARE ourselves to others.

Comparison gives birth majorly to all our emotions, especially the negative ones.

So why do we compare our lives with those of others' we (think) we know of?

Why do we benchmark our happiness to theirs' ?
Ever wondered why we constantly crave to equal or better our peers ?

What purpose does it truly serve ?
Isn't everything in life fleeting ?
Be it fame , beauty , money , laurels ....

So does it really matter ?
And if so, then how much ?

And at the cost of what ?

Steve Jobs dies a billionaire, with a fortune of $7 billion, at the age of 56 from pancreatic cancer, & here are some of his last words

“At this moment, lying on the bed, sick and remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition and wealth that
I have is meaningless in the face of imminent death. You can hire someone to drive a car for you, make money for you – but you can not rent someone to carry the disease for you.”

As we get older we are smarter, and we slowly realize that the watch is worth $30 or $300 –
both of which show the same time. Whether we drive a car worth $150,000, or a car worth $2000 – the road and distance are the same, we reach the same destination. If we drink a bottle worth $300 or wine worth $10 we're drunk".

1/ An ageing master, tired of the constant complaining of his disciple, sent him to fetch a handful of salt. When the disciple returned, he asked him to mix it into a glass of water and drink it. “How did it taste?” asked the master. “Bitter” said the disciple as he spat out the
2/ sip he’d taken. The master chuckled and asked him to get another handful of salt. He then walked with him, in peaceful silence, to the lake. At the lake, he asked him to pour the salt into the lake. And then said “Taste the water now.”“How did it taste?” he asked once again.
3/ “Very fresh! I couldn’t taste the salt at all” said the disciple.The master smiled at the disciple, who reminded him of his younger self, sat beside the lake and beckoned the young man to join him. “The pain of life is the salt” he said, “no more, no less. The amount of pain

#LifeLessons learnt in the last two decades as a surgeon

1. People trust you blindly or they don’t .There is no half way there. It takes time for that totality to come but,it’s worth it . The sad part about trust is once broken it hardly gets mended.The cracks remain for life
2. Your ability to convince people on anything is purely based on what they want to hear . They have made up their mind most of the times . It’s a little push they are looking for either ways . Understand this nuance
3. People have a need to blame someone if things go wrong . When it’s their mistake they blame destiny / God. But there are people who are harsh on themselves too. It’s very important that we take care of this group

Does work-life balance really exist?
ah, I feel it is always one that dominates the other.

note: the right audience should take it at an individual level

~ *thread* ~

The standard metric to measure this is figuring out what type of person are you.
I feel we all can be represented in 3 dimensions or types.

Sometimes you just need a power that lets you believe that this will all turn out worth a shot.

let's explore this power theoretically in a practical world.

~ * thread * ~

The power that keeps us going is Trust, a power that makes us say things like "In the next 2 years, I will be earning this, then I will be doing this and finally I would be happy! "
It is actually an illusion initially, but with possible calculations. Is there a guarantee? After all, it's your own intuitions. Haha!
