When I was entitled as mean …

This is probably the second time in this week when i am granted with the title of a selfish,mean,impossible,rock hard and cold hearted person.
Firstly by my mother and secondly by a dear friend.
Well the interesting part is that deep inside somewhere they know that i am not this way, and deep inside somewhere in my mind I also know that it’s all because of my reluctance in speaking.

Speaking my mind and my heart out has always been one of the most difficult and uncomfortable thing known to me.The reasons are not clear but the fact still remains there.

Moving on to the story… A week ago I had an argument with my mom, although I always try my level best not to misbehave but still i was rude. I did not talk to her after that because i knew she’s angry with me. She didn’t seem bothered by my silence but i wanted to converse with her the way we always used to.
Two days passed and i would always see her laughing and giggling with my other siblings,giving them goodbye hugs on their way to school,greeting them whenever they come back home,scolding them with humorous comments,making fun of the way they dance,the way they eat. I waited and hoped that she would notice me on one corner of the room but she didn’t.
4 days passed and we were not in talking terms with each other.
Now my thoughts started wandering here and there. I began to think
Whether my mother really needs me or not??
When she is perfect and happy with all of her other kids then what is the point of me being here??
Am i really that worthless??
She never gets angry with anybody like this,then why only me??
Nobody even tried convincing her for me??

While I was in the midst of all my exaggerations somebody from behind me patted on my shoulder.
Yes!!! It was mum.
“O mariyaah! How cold hearted can you ever be.” she exclaimed loudly “You haven’t talked to me since 4 days. I do agree that people have differences at home but does that mean that they stop talking to each other??? “

I was left with no reasons and no answers. “I could never tell you or anybody how unwanted actually I felt.. But i wish i could discern” I thought to myself since i could not tell her how i looked forward to her to show up every minute. Silence is not an ultimate righteous attribute at times but i couldn’t say a word because i knew if i try then i would start crying right away.

She leaned forward and hugged me and I did the same. The most perfect and safe place a person can ever be.


What is actually a noble profession??

ImageLast week i had an opportunity to attend a medical seminar and so I availed that.After several hours of introductory speeches the Worthy Speaker raised a question:

Is Health Care a noble profession??

The crowd replied: YES.

And when they were asked for the reasons they were like:

Because we are dealing with human lives,because we are imposed with a responsibility,because innocent beings are looking forward to us,because you have the whole world of a person in your hands,because you serve as an angel,a life savior,a philanthropist,and through you they are blessed with one of the virtues of God and that is Giving life to a being.

Now the Speaker asked:

If Health Care is a noble one than which profession is not a noble one??(except robbery etc)

Is Engineering,Marketing,Teaching etc a non-noble profession??

Is the Sweeper working outside, not noble??

So , everybody claims of his/her profession as being noble.But the question remains the same.

Which profession is not a noble one???

What actually does noble mean??

Firstly the word NOBLE means:

having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals,righteous,virtuous,honorable,decent,upright ,moral,ethical etc.

So can nobility be associated with a profession??

If yes,then

Isn’t nobility a human virtue???


Yes, nobility is only a human virtue.

A profession can never be noble.It’s the person which makes it noble,reliable and may be not noble.

You make and govern your own way,your own habits,your own dignity,your own qualities,and your own virtues and then you transfer the relative qualities to your profession as well.

Nothing be … but a good listener

“Nothing be, but a good listener”

“A good listener is always a silent flatterer”

  “A good listener does not mean that he has nothing to say,a good listener is a good talker with a sore throat”

“Great leaders are always good listeners”

Apart from all of these things they are various pros and cons of being a listener.

  • PROS:

People may think of you as:

• patient

• understanding

• trustworthy and innocent

• may be sympathetic

• and your words are valued

             It is an important factor in any relationship any friendship.It brings a certain level of comfort whenever the thing is about sharing your problems and personal issues.Obviously nobody would like to highlight his personal issues in front of a person who doesn’t even give him a chance to talk or to explain.I have always experienced this lackness when sharing my issues.

  • CONS:

On the other hand,there is an opposite side to it as well.

People might not understand you completely as you are not loud like others.

When it comes to social behaviors , people may think of you as deaf or dumb and may try to trespass you.

When it comes to normal relations, In any misunderstanding it is quite difficult for a listener to clarify himself as compared to a loud person.
