Cause we all pay the dues


So obviously I cannot study, and have taken probably my 100th break right now. So why not write something?

I don't know why, but for some reason today I feel like going into the concept of karma and all of us paying our dues. 

"what goes around, comes around"
"be good, do good"

These sayings we all have heard but very few seem to understand this. I am a strong believer of karma. I do believe that our actions result into the consequences of our life. Even Newton established this fact with his law "every action has an equal and opposite reaction". 

The biggest reason that I believe in this is because I have seen it happen all around me. Personal experience here is my biggest example. People who hurt others, pass mean comments, judge all the time, and deliberately demean people, for some reason I always see that they end up paying for it. It can be in the smallest way to the biggest ever thing. But it happens. They really crash and burn. It can be as small as someone hurting them back, or them losing something very valuable or sometimes something big and worse. 

So many people, when going through pain or tough times ask themselves "why me?", maybe they should introspect. There is always a reason for everything that happens in your life. I am not saying just cause you did something bad you become a very bad human. But we all should introspect and understand as to why certain things are happening to us. May be because you judged and insulted someones relationship, you don't have a good one. May be you laughed at someone's failure and now you are failing too. Maybe you hurt someone close purposely and now you have some unnecessary hiccups in the life. You never know why something may be happening to you. All you can probably do is learn from it and make sure you are good in the future.

We should judge each day by the seeds we plant. Yes some days are very bad, maybe we too are paying the dues. We should be conscious and make sure that we are good people. We have one life, with so much to see and do. So why spend it judging, passing comments and hurting other people. What are we going to get. On what basis can we hate someone and cause them pain.

I know people who have judged so much, passed horrible comments, been mean, spread rumors and now when I see how their life is, I just feel sorry for them. Because for everything you do, the good and bad, there are consequences. I don't want to get personal and specify the examples I have seen, but karma truly is a bitch. I have seen where all these people end up and I never want to be there. 

No matter where we are, all we need to do is "be good", how hard is that.

Stop hurting others! First step to clear your karma. Be grateful, and don't put somebody down just so that you can uplift yourself for a few minutes. Many people out there are just waiting to dull your sparkle. They thrive on your problems, they like it when you are average, just like them. So they comment, judge, hurt. Even we do that sometimes. Its very natural. I do it too, not like I am some amazing human.So many times I hurt the people I love, use harsh words, lose my temper. And yes, I  get the returns in my own ways. So I just become conscious, keep my faith and make sure I don't let it happen again. It's a process, takes time to be aware. 

 So I guess we should just....

Smile, read a book, compliment someone, help people, be loving...there is so much pain and hatred in this world, so at least some of us can strive to make this place a little better, so that we ourselves can be happy too.

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
