Keep Doing Great Work: My Thoughts

©Chitrangadasharan

One week (8 days to be precise) is already over in the new year.

All of us make plans and schedules and resolutions, as the new year commences.

As I looked at the calendar today, I was surprised to find that one week has already passed away.

But, still we have 51 weeks left. 👍👍

So, I am thinking of speeding up my work, finishing those plans, which I had promised to myself.

No more excuses, about weather, about visitors, about any other things.

Hope all of you are keeping your word (to yourself)!

Keep working hard, keep doing great.

👍🌹👍

To The New Beginnings: 2023

The new year has already begun, with today being the first working day of 2023.

Times have changed, and the ways to celebrate the New Year has also changed.

During my childhood days, new year eve meant, staying at home with family, lots of yummy food, and the good old Doordarshan.

Since winter season is at it’s peak, we stayed in our cozy homes, wrapped in warm clothes, and watched each and every program of Doordarshan.

Nowadays, no one wants to stay at home. They want to spend this fabulous last week of the year at a beautiful holiday destination, or an organised terrace party, or a community club and so on.

No complaints whatsoever— I have enjoyed it then, and enjoy it now. One must move according to the changing times.

So, we spent our new year eve at Nainital, a beautiful hill station in Uttarakhand state of India.

Nainital is worth visiting, with it’s vast lakes, amazing Mall Road, fascinating restaurants and hotels, and of course the breathtakingly and gorgeous Nature.

Sharing some pictures with the best wishes for a —

Happy, Joyful, and Prosperous New Year 2023 to everyone

Weekend Thoughts: Self Care

Relax and rejuvenate amidst Nature, Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

You will never speak to anyone, as much as, you speak to yourself, in your head.

So, please be kind to yourself, and spend sometime amidst ‘Nature.’

Nature is the ultimate healer, the real place to de-stress, to rejuvenate, to recharge, with positive vibes.

It’s indeed the best place to be for physical and psychological well being.

Having some ‘Me’ time is essential, and what better place to be, than ‘Mother Nature!’

Weekend Thoughts: Patience and Perseverance

My Thoughts, Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

Life is a journey with many ups and downs, pleasure and pain, some successes and many failures.

Sometimes, we get stuck up in life. Nothing seems to work, even though we put our sincere and best efforts, and we are on the verge of giving up.

Then, somehow we gather the broken pieces together— start again, fail again, then start again— and the process goes on and on.

But, it’s an established fact that, those who don’t give up, do succeed, at some point of time.

I am sure, people have such stories to share with others.

Sharing those stories, might give others hope, and confidence, and we should often do that.

Try to be someone’s motivation, in their trying times. It is a satisfying experience.

It’s That Time of The Year

Enthusiasm and positive vibes all around,

People busy in decorating their homes,

With renewed hopes and dreams,

Glittering with coloured lights,

Decorated streets and markets,

Busy roads and malls,

Distributing happiness with sweets,

Exchanging positivity with each other,

As The countdown for Diwali,

The Festival of Lights, hopes,

And dreams is close and around.

Self Belief: My Thoughts

Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

Our mind is so powerful, that what we believe in, we can manifest in our lives.

If we believe that we are worthy, and valuable— Others will also perceive the same.

If we believe that we are brave, strong and powerful, we can succeed in our endeavours.

If we believe that we are loved by everyone, we will be joyful and happy, and everyone will treat us in the same way.

One should not wait that after all the troubles (of life) are over, I will be happy.

Be happy and positive, and all your troubles will seem insignificant.

What’s the Significance of Celebrating Festivals?

India is known for celebrating many festivals, all with the same enthusiasm.

One might ask— So many festivals throughout the year?

Yes, it’s true— Besides the big festivals, such as Holi, Diwali, Dussehra and others, each day has some significance, and the fact remains that Indians love to celebrate.

The reason is very simple— To be joyful, to spread happiness, and to celebrate life.

Besides all this, festivals are the best ways to maintain our culture, traditions and rich heritage.

Festivals are an amazing way to have social harmony and brotherhood among the citizens of a country.

It’s perhaps the best way to spread positivity, where people forget all their differences, their personal struggles.

Life is not always easy. There are challenges almost everyday. But, we have to carry on, and win our battles— big or small.

Where do we get the inner strength for all this??

Festivals fills us up with hope and belief, to be strong, to start afresh.

The above picture is from a Durga Puja pandal, as the festival of Navratri and Dussehra is being celebrated throughout the length and breath of India.

The whole community works in coordination with each other, to make the festivals enjoyable for everyone.

It’s all a very pleasant sight to watch people together— and Happy!

Happy Navratri and Happy Dussehra!
