Give up or Not ?

The night sky promised another bright day once the black carpet gave way to its ego alterer.She gazed up to have the final look and closed the window.


She closed her eyes. She hoped things would go the way she had mapped them out. She had put in a lot of efforts and was sure of her victory. Still, the worry did not let her sleep.

She tossed and turned on her bed. No! Her dream was just a few hours away and it wouldn’t let her sleep. What if she didn’t see her dream come true? She would know it within a few hours from now. She was confident, but scared. Too many things had kept her away from realising her dream. But she didn’t give up. But what if her dreams come crashing down? Simple! Try again. Fall, but get up. Do not give up. Come what may, I will not give up, she thought and had sound sleep.

Knowledge

It is said that pen is mightier than the sword. The words penned down on a piece of paper are enough to stir a revolutions. Knowledge can be passed by explaining in words, but to pass it on to distant places, you do need it to be stored somewhere which can be passed to places where the teacher cannot reach. Pen and paper, printing helped in transferring knowledge to lands where the original writer couldn’t reach.

Technology improved over time and the modern time has turned to internet which provides information about everything and anything. It has become easy for anyone who wish to learn about anything. It has surpassed all boundaries The courses which were once unknown or not within reach have been made available in the remotest corner of the world.

Knowledge transfer need not be in just form. As long as the knowledge is transferred from person to person, and from generation to generation, the media need not matter. Pass the knowledge, learn the good things, know the meaning of life.

When Hunger strikes

Often the fortunate ones do not realise the meaning of hunger until they face it. The less fortunate ones who have gone through the tough phase of hunger realise the value of food.

Most often we see people wasting ample food while in some other part of the corner people are seen "skipping" meals due to no availability of food.

Most often in the name of following diet or losing weight, we skip and starve even though ample food is available infront of us. Solution for losing weight is not starving, but eating the right quantity of food and the right kind of food.

One should value the food that he has in his plate and try and not to waste it. And it isn't just us, there are ample places and ways where food is wasted in great quantities; the amount of wastage is alarming.

This post was born out of realisation that even though there is ample food around, it doesn't reach people who are in dire need.
