I must tell you this one @narendramodi Ji,

My Domestic Help this time flew back to Mumbai from his village in Madhubani in Bihar.

His logic, "saab 2 din time train me barbaad hota, flight ki ticket ka daam train ticket + 2 din ke salary jitna hi hai."

Vikas poore samaj ka!🙏
India is raising velocity of action in the life of those at the bottom of the wealth pyramid too now and across the board, @narendramodi Ji. Jahan Vaqt ki raftaar badal jaaye, growth will be mind-boggling. The purchasing power that is getting created will propel us unimaginably!
This tweet going #viral proves to me:

a. The utmost #virility in human perception, of all ideas is the idea of progress!

b. We humans at our core feel #gratitude #happiness in seeing any other human being progress & make his life convenient.

I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?

When Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola in a telephone interview, was asked by the radio presenter, "Sir what can you remember made you a happiest man in life?"
Femi said:
"I have gone through four stages of happiness in life and finally I understood the meaning of true happiness.

“The first stage was to accumulate wealth and means. But at this stage I did not get the happiness I wanted.
“Then came the second stage of collecting valuables and items. But I realised that the effect of this thing is also temporary and the lustre of valuable things does not last long.

Day 2 of #TurkeyJewishRoadtrip:

On the road from Bursa to Çeşme

While on road lets talk😊

Did you know that #Turkey is an important source of #Kosher food? Hundreds of manufacturers all over the country produce anything from raw material to ready to eat products.
By the way: Kosher food does not mean food that is blessed by a rabbi!

Rather it is food that has been prepared according to Jewish law - there are no mixtures of meat/milk, it is insect free, meat or chicken have to be prepared properly according to Jewish law and more...
The Turkish Jewish community @tyahuditoplumu through @DenetGida which certifies hundreds of plants, as well as the @OrthodoxUnion and @OKKosher have their field representatives inspect plants to assure they are fit for the kosher consumer.

Happy Story :

My Househelp didi,on Friday,came to us with 35000 in cash(she had saved in months),and told us to get a laptop for her daughter. As she is not much educated she has no idea abt laptops and all. Yesterday we went out and bought the laptop a bit higher than 35K (1/n)
We thought we would compensate her for the extra amount . Today when she came , the expression on her face was so pure , honest & innocent . Apparently her daughter has no idea . She wants to surprise her with this gift as she is taking up classes for Air hostess (2/n)
And when she came to know about Price , she says , "Bhaiya mere salary me se ek ek hazaar har mahine kaat lena" ...We told her not to worry about it but she insisted. She has just one daughter and she wants to give her best education & opportunities.... How lovely (3/n)

" Zen and the Art of Happiness "

It's a simple book but it makes you think .

Few of my takeaways ( with random 2 min doodles).
What is Zen ?

#Zen is a Japanese word that is derived from the Sanskrit word Dhyana meaning "Meditation" .
Zen is a journey of exploration & a way of living that , in and of itself doesn't belong to any one religion or tradition as such.

Zen doesn't teach. It merely
points, enabling us to wake up & become aware.

Ever noticed how zen stories rarely have predefined morals? 🤓

The zen of doing anything is doing it with a concentration of mind , a calmness & simplicity of mind, that brings the experience of enlightenment and, through that experience , happiness.

It could be something as mundane as sweeping or peeling potatoes !

We delivered 50 Khichdi Dabbas today. It was a Palak khichdi. Used the Matta rice which is easier to digest and was made in ghee so that it is mild on the stomach. Our initial plan was to give food to policemen on duty & ambulance drivers. #Update (1)
On our way to Sasoon Hospital we have to policemen and to rag pickers. As we reached Sasoon compound we realized the family members of the patient been treated at Sasoon also needs food desperately. #Update (2)
The family members of the patients are usually found in & around this place. From tomorrow we are also providing food to these families in Sasoon & other govt hospitals in Pune. #Update (3) Image

Been a while since I finished a book in one sitting but #ThinkAgain by @AdamMGrant was that good. A thread with some of my key takeaways:
#Confidence is a measure of how much you believe in yourself versus your methods. You can be confident in your ability to achieve a goal in the future while maintaining the humility to question whether you have the right tools in the present. That's the sweet spot of confidence.
We should strive to attain confident humility: having faith in our capability while appreciating that we may not have the right solution or even be addressing the right problem - giving us enough doubt to re-examine our old knowledge and enough confidence to pursue new insights.

Being a Cinematographer is the best job on the planet (It’s true. Don’t make me fight you). A thread of some of my favorite Female + Trans DPs.

#EllenKuras - 1st time I met Ellen was at a now defunct (?) Women in Film org event. I was ridiculously excited to meet her. Prob best known for #EternalSunshine but was #Unzipped that wow’d. Revolutionized how I viewed docs. Here’s Mizrahi & Eartha Kitt
#SandiSissel. We all watched #SalaamBombay. Keeping tabs on Sandi’s career introduced me to 2nd Unit DP opportunities. I admired her versatility moving from indie film to #MasterAndCommander. Two visual worlds I love to play in.

This thread is for the ones who believe the Islamic Republic's propaganda,which is pushed by the likes of @ArianeTabatabai who seems to think nothing significant happened in November2019.
@YourAnonCentral @OrlaGuerin @YasMohammedxx @EP_President @vonderleyen @USAdarFarsi @UN @hrw
Ariane Tabatabai,the newly appointed Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of State,claims that the Iranian protests of November2019 were not a "big change".In this thread,we try to remind Ariane and other like-minded people of a few of the small changes before and after Nov2019:
Mahdi Daemi with his mother before and after November 2019.
Mahdi Daemi was killed with a state force bullet in November 2019 protests.

1/ Q: This pandemic winter is dragging on … and on. I need a safe #happiness boost. Right now.

A: We feel you! Here are four research-based tips to plant the seeds of change🌱even as many of us are still buried under the (literal and figurative) snow. ❄️ ⛄️
2/ 😊 Say no more often 😊

You might call it the “yes, sure… oh, dang” problem. Academics call it hyperbolic discounting. It’s the challenge we all have where we agree to things that are in the future because we discount it – we think it’s less valuable than the present.
3/ Our to-do list for today is in front of us & we know we don’t have time to add an extra, unimportant thing, but April? Yes, sure, my April is wide open rn. And then April comes &… oh dang, I’m overwhelmed. Give your future self the gift of saying no.

(1/n) A thorough and thoughtful new report from @Happi_Research on #wellbeing in age of #covid and what we might do to look after our own #happiness. My main takeaways follow:
1) people worry more as case rates go up
2) big impacts on loneliness, particularly for single and unemployed.
3) oddly(?), among singles, living with >3 people was worse than living alone
4) meditation, speaking to friends and family, and getting outside helped w/ loneliness
5) people worried more at the start of the outbreak, and those who read more news worried more. Read less news!
6) biggest mood impacts were on anxiety (rather than e.g. sadness or boredom)

Today, we will take a break from the regular mindful moments, activities, and reminders.

Instead, we are going to tweet every hour a few thoughts, hopefully, insightful on their own and when looked at collectively as well.

Let us begin.
A life that’s fulfilling and meaningful is a life worth living; such a life can be called a 'success'.
Everyone wants to feel fulfilled, happy, blissful; they want to feel complete, but it often doesn’t happen for most people. Isn't it?

Isht Devta?

Who is my Isht Devta? Have you ever thought about this? Did this question ever pique your interest? Ever made you confused? Well, many people ask me this question, “who is my Isht Dev?” Generally, people worship whomever God they hear about or Image
depending upon the time of the year, like Janmashtami, Navratri, Shiv Ratri, Narak Chaturdashi, Adhik Maas, etc. People worship Shri Hari Vishnu with the same devotion they worship Shri Krishna or Shiv Ji or Hanuman Ji. Let me tell you this, you are not doing anything wrong.

But you must also know that for every ounce of energy, you are getting only 80% in return because worshipping your Isht Devta will yield a better result. You may follow a few easy steps to find out who is your Isht Dev. Meditate. Meditate properly for a couple of month with

By far the best book I have read in a long long time.
One can simply begin from any page,for each note makes so much sense that we get lost in them , sometimes chuckling & often amazed .

Here are MY learnings from
" A Book of Simple Living" by Ruskin Bond.
The book is enriched with life lessons . Most profound of all for me being ,

#Life is simple despite all its hardships and complexities .
For the purpose of life is to live ....

Now, how we choose to live our life makes it simple or complicated.

Do we chase #happiness by climbing infinite mountains in the quest for fame & wealth or do we savour the goodness in the little things that often come our way but go unnoticed and unappreciated by us ?
For ultimately , " It is the little things that matter the most ".

You gotta accept it first before you can fix it. Most people never accept, they find it difficult too. Ego, pride, hurt, the why me attitude etc. That’s what keeps you stuck as a victim.
When you are a victim, you can’t take action because you constantly crave for sympathy, pity, validation etc.
We must first accept what has happened. Then we rise above and do everything to fix it. You gotta accept it first before you can fix it!! It all starts with acceptance and letting or letting go …Gracefully....
