Jiah Khan's story

Jiah Khan is making headlines again but sadly for something nobody is happy about.Such young life wasted away for reasons unknown. But what saddens me more the way people are discussing the whole subject from suicide to depression to love failure. I wish people will leave her alone. Why torture that soul  ?

 I see every body discussing Jiah  Khan's life and her alleged boyfriend Suraj as if both were some public property .There are at least four articles printed in media mostly discussing  whether Suraj is in the wrong/Jiah was depressed/Was it love failure? etc. etc. Please give them a break .Stop judging both of them! Firstly we have no idea what happened between them .Only Jiah and Suraj will know the truth .And one of them is not in this world anymore . Its up to the law now .Whatever course of action is taken will be based on  evidences ,testimonies and rest of the technical jargon. That's the only way to treat this case .Jiah's family and Suraj's family should only be the parties involved. It would be best if the rest of media doesn't judge,pass comments and keep playing the guessing game and start endless discussions on suicide.This is such  a personal matter ,kindly keep it personal.

I really hope and pray that the truth comes out and Jiah's soul will truly rest in peace!

Education vs "Education"

I always wondered what educating someone meant. When I was young I  thought it was studying well and scoring good marks.How wrong can one be! I have grown now :). But I still see many viewing education with the same view of marks and degrees. But what truly is education?

According to me ,you are truly educated :

- When you are sensitive enough to make sure that you don't hurt others.

- When you have the compassion in you to realize that your actions indeed have consequences.

- When you respect elders for their age if not for anything else!(Like giving them your seat in the bus!)

- When you have conversations with people instead of arguments

- When you know that Winning always doesn't mean success

- When you are positive and optimistic in dealing every  situation

- When  you accept pain and happiness with same equanimity

- When integrity,honesty are part of your soul and reflect in every work you do.

- When you know how to conduct yourself in public

 - When you don't break queues by cheating to get your work done faster.

-  When you don't litter your surroundings and make and effort to keep it clean.

- When you do not waste natural resources and make an effort to save it or use it judiciously at every opportunity.

- When you can assimilate a good thought and implement it .

- When you know status ,titles are mere words and they itself do not signify anything about you.

- When you understand dignity of every profession and do not run any one profession down.

- and last but not the least ,when you know "education" is continuous and has not duration(like your degree).

Am I right?  :)

Everybody has the right to live

Everybody in this world deserves to live as they want to as long as they are not coming in between principles of others. But world is such a strange place,we are constantly advising people around us,always telling them what needs to be done ,what wrongs were done in the past and what wrongs they are doing now. I think it is best that the person himself learns from his mistakes and gain experience and then realise that what they had was not correct indeed. That way they will repeat the mistake or understand how to deal better. Of course the whole world is full of "I told you so" category but what to do? If we do not want advise then it is better to make mistakes and bear the digs at you.

I just want freedom for everybody.Everybody should feel so free that they can speak their mind without thinking so much about the other persons perception of us. This live and let live policy is the best policy I have ever come across.Please try it! :)
