#TonisArmy will not let this be buried.

If this case is not addressed, we will not and #DoNotComply with whatever @ukhomeoffice or @WHO has to tell.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai
(He gave a speech in only 60 seconds) He said:

Imagine life is a game of 5 balls that you manipulate in the air trying not to fall these balls. One of them is rubber, and the rest is glass.

The five balls are:
Work, family, health, friends, soul.
It will not be long before you realize that (work) is a rubber ball. Whenever you fall, you will jump again, while the other balls are made of glass. If one of them falls, it will not return to its previous form.

It will either be damaged, bruised, cracked or even scattered.
You have to be aware of that and strive for it.

Manage your work efficiently during working hours, take the time to be assured of your sincerity, give the necessary time to your family and friends, take appropriate rest, and take care of your health.

*त्रासांचं ओझं; सुखी राहण्याचा मार्ग*🌷🌷

तथागत गौतम बुद्ध आपल्याकडे येणाऱ्या प्रत्येकाचे शंका निरसन करत असत. समस्येतून उपाय सांगत असत. त्यांच्याकडे आलेला कोणीही विन्मुख होऊन परतत नसे. त्यामुळे प्रत्येक जण आपल्या दुःखाची उकल करण्यासाठी तथागत बुध्दांकडे येत असे..
एक दिवस एक व्यक्ती एक प्रश्न घेऊन भगवान बुद्धांच्या भेटीस आली. भगवान बुद्धांच्या नुसत्या दर्शनाने त्या व्यक्तीचे मन शांत झाले.

ही मनःशांती सातत्याने अनुभवता यावी, म्हणून त्या व्यक्तीने भगवान बुद्धांना प्रश्न विचारला, 'भगवान,आम्ही संसारी माणसं छोट्या गोष्टींनी त्रासून जातो.

#WeeklyShortStories based on my Learnings.
If you like them , do share them ! :))

Whilst distributing goodies to our children , Dhriti ran upto me & whispered in my ear.

"Didi, can I get 2 more bags ?"
"What for ?" I asked a tad unhappily thinking she was being greedy.
" I need to give them to Ashok & Pushpa - my friends. They haven't eaten such sweets ever ! " she stated.

"But I have just 1extra bag !" I lied.

She thought deeply momentarily & replied , "It's okay didi. I shall give my bag to Pushpa."

Shocked I questioned her ,
" Don't YOU wish to eat these yummy sweets? "

To which the 6yr old smiled & said , " You gave them last Diwali as well . I enjoyed it back then.
This time let THEM enjoy it ."

I held back my tears.....

What an important lesson she had unknowingly imparted!

Last night, I was reading part of a thread where @liminal_warmth was putting together a new clan // guild // whatever on classic WoW. I almost jumped on it, but then I remembered my previous WoW experience.
I started playing during Lich King, because the people I knew started playing then. They played on a heavy RP server. I spun up an undead rogue named Qaddafi. And off I went into the world.
At this time, I played through all the story stuff. The world was amazing, and I applaud the writers for building it. However, since everyone else was already an 80, I didn't get to do dungeons. They only had the rando dungeons once you hit a high enough level.

The 10 most important things I've learned in 2020.

10. Be very careful where you put your teeth when carrying balloons. It's also probably not a good idea to carry eggs if you can't carry a balloon.

#DogsOfTwitter #yegdog #CanadianDogs #LifeLessons
9. Humans should order more dog treats and less of these bags of air. Don't they know they don't need to get air shipped to them?
8. I would make a stunning statue!

Happy Birthday Richard Pryor! Here’s a story in memory of him, my father and Mitzi Shore owner of @TheComedyStore. My father was a projectionist, owned a drive-in movie theater for some years, and for a spell worked at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood when I was a kid.

I didn’t spend a lot of time with him growing up. But the little time I did, it involved running around the basement of the Chinese Theater, learning how to splice and glue reels together, and picking up garbage at the drive-in during the day...
as people always liked to clean out the inside of their cars before leaving; popcorn containers, whiskey bottles, spent roaches, and dirty diapers. Gear was always being upgraded, fixed, or changed out. Eventually, my dad worked at a chain of theaters where he did just that.

You can have the best medicines, the best doctors, the best trainers and coaches, the best sleep, the best organic foods, but it’s all really useless with the wrong attitude! Attitude is everything! Choose well.
The biggest disability in the world is a bad attitude. I’ll say that again! The biggest disability in the world is a bad attitude. It affects our health, relationships, personal growth, career, friendships, the way we treat our planet and ourselves.
It affects our capabilities to be happy, our kids see this and emulate us. Nothing can work for you if your attitude is poor. Change your attitude and you change your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, experience and life!

I have been at a certain point where I was feeling puzzled at the turn of events in our world of narratives

There is a famous TV news anchor, famous more for a theatrical presentation of his take on and choice of narratives


He took on the high, mighty, corrupt, murderous, execrable & monstrous folks – no doubt.

He raised the voice on matters that other news media refused to even acknowledge.


He took a contra position against the MSM presentations and garnered market leadership through his channels – both in English & Hindi

Clearly, his agenda worked with the masses & his audience size too grew.

First year of psychiatry residency teaches some valuable life lessons.

Here is a real life story about fighting delusions and living with them as it applies to today.
I worked in a municipal hospital during my urban internship stint. There was once a week Psychiatry OPD started by resident medical officer Dr Shirole and visiting consultant Dr Thombare (unfortunately, both have now passed away). I had already expressed my interest in Psychiatry
So I was allowed attend this OPD.
Dr Thombare wanted me to learn about symptoms of mind so he asked to talk a patient in detail. He allocated a middle aged man as my patient.
He was on treatment for years and was considered a "stable" patient.

* #Gratitude*
I keep a "memory jar" for each year wherein I write in brief the best moments of my life & lessons learnt. Even a small event which taught me something goes in it .
I strongly believe in " No regrets, only lessons learnt ".
( That's handpainted by me! :) )
Occasionally when I have a rough day or when I am elated , I go through the chits one by one savouring the lessons learnt . It keeps me grounded. Makes me realise I am blessed to have had so many #memories & grown as a person and that life is beautiful !! 😇
Things that happen to us, just happen. It is we who perceive it to be good or bad as per our emotions at play. It is then that practising gratitude becomes of utmost importance for we need to realign our thoughts towards #positivity& #contentment & steer away from negativity.

Was reading upon #Biases & learnt a lot. Thought of sharing a few pointers .
Simply put Bias is a disproportionate weight in favour of or against any idea/thing in all aspects of life.
Few types of Biases ( out of the many) with not so random images. :)
The #DunningKruger effect now is fairly well known , wherein people with limited knowledge overestimate their competence, whilst the actually knowledgeable question themselves often .
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge".
A very interesting bias wherein we credit our successes to purely ourselves, but when things go awry we cite luck & external forces .
Rings any bells?
Basically a defence mechanism to protect our self esteem & eventually from personal responsibility.

A thread on lessons I have learnt in life-
#life #learning #LifeLessons

1- Never disrespect/hurt your parents. Never!
2- Never disrespect food.
3- Never trust the same person twice.
4- If you can't keep your secret, don't expect others to keep it for you.
5- Be loyal to the ones you love. But don't be foolish.
6- People don't like to hear the truth they don't like. But don't lie to please them. At the end you have to face yourself, not people.
7- We haven't seen God, but if you are respecting your parents and helping the 'poor' people, you are doing God's work
8- When you are in deep trouble, only your family will be there. Don't believe ? Try asking a friend for a kidney for your kidney transplant.

Women have been taught the concept of silencing for centuries. Women were not allowed to make decisions about their own bodies and were ultimately subjected to oppression...especially women of color! #silencingvsspeaking #njcurj #oppression
This issue still exists today! Women deserve to have their voices heard. Reproductive justice cannot be accomplished because women continue to be silenced. #njcurj #unheardvoices #endsilencing
Women have been hindered from adequate healthcare, abortion rights, and reproductive care as a result of being silenced. Women not having access is an indirect way to silence women. Women deserve to be free from oppression. #njcurj #reproductivecare #abortion #healthcare

A real life Case Study - The Roller Coaster journey from being a servant to a King


Someone I know...

He was given an admin job in a small company. The promoter new his father. So, gave him the job & a place to live. He was totally indebted to the promoter (P) and dedicated his work & life for him. His job was to do whatever P asked him to do...
Over the years, he started having a feeling of non achiever...someone who was totally dependent on P. His life & profession was fragile. He wasn't in control of his & his family's destiny...he wanted to get free and take control of his life.

How did he do it!

Missed Chances

Have you had opportunities that you wasted or better still Chances that slipped through your fingers.
Stay tuned for my own experiences of missed Chance.

In 2016, during my service year, I was linked up with a friend's friend who had loose cash and wanted where he could invest his cash with just a meagre percentage after a duration. So we got talking and he was fascinated by my idea and the line
of business I was into at the time.
Date and location was set up and on the D day for the official business, I was no where to be found,my phones were switched off and my lame excuse then was I had to travel for Pv signing.

Feel free to make this a guiding tool to wade through your life. This certainly is my guiding light. It's a religion, a way of life for me...cast in stone on my pschye and my Twitter profile.
My guiding philosophy:

#Life is an perpetual flow of opportunities....I keep taking them without any inhibitions!

I am in full control of my life. I do everything in my life (even not doing anything) with full intent. I identify my areas of interests & passion. I evaluate whatever paths I can see at a given point of time and proceed towards what appears to be best as per my understanding...

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

1050 days, since I quit corporate slavery (English translation of Naukri). Here are some immediate thoughts and #lifelessons:

1) Wealth is not about having a lot of money, it's about having a lot of options. - Chris Rock
2) Just look around you... your boss, his boss, his Boss..they're all slogging for money which they are never ever going to use in this life.
3) One who has Rs.1 Cr, thinks 5 Cr should be nice to have, one who has 5, thinks 20 should be nice, one who has 20 is gunning for 100 crs and so onand so forth!
