The Power of Life


My thoughts on the recent increase in the number of suicide. I am actually shocked that off late there has been a huge increase in the number of people committing suicides. The reasons vary right from dowry harassment to scoring fewer marks in exams or a love failure. You open the newspaper and everyday there is at least 1 story on a suicidal case. It’s sad to know that there are so many people who don’t really value life. I being a person who loves life and consider it a gift to live this beautiful journey called life find that it’s very weak on the part of the person who indulges in such acts. It’s disheartening to see people give up on their lives so easily. Why and from where do such thoughts come into the person’s mind?I personally feel we have no right to take our lives it is a gift given to us to live not to take away. There is no problem in the world for which on has to give up their life. Every problem has a solution, it may take a long time to overcome but every problem has to come to an end eventually. Life cannot be rosy all the time. We need to experience ups and downs to grow strong mentally and physically. Everybody has their own share of problems some express it some don’t some pass it off with a smile on their face.We need to have a mix and blend of everything in life else it gets very boring. Life without challenges is like a river without water.

Smile and you will have a million well-wishers


This weekend the most awaited and anticipated film “Seethama Vakkitllo Sirimalle Chettu” released. I have been waiting for the release of this film with bated breath. I am a complete family person and I love watching films which revolve around families. Basically I am a sucker for clean, nice family entertainers.

So finally yesterday the husband and I went to watch the film. The excitement was building up and I was counting hours before the show time. As usual we were running late and we reached the theater when they just started viewing the film. I was happy cuz they had only started displaying the titles of the film. The film began with a very beautiful description of the family members and slowly the story unfolded.
Am not here to review the film which everybody does but I would just like to put down a few feelings I felt after watching this beautiful film. The film conveys a very beautiful message “Smile and the world will smile with you”. It also tells us money, arrogance, fame, status in society all these things are secondary and really don’t matter in the broader perspective of life. I mean come to think of it today you may be a millionaire but is there any guarantee that you will remain one for the rest of your life. Let’s take the case of beauty we put in so much effort to look beautiful all the time but when we grow old are we going to look the same way we did when we were 20 years old? No of course not, we would have wrinkles (of course there’s Botox but for how long?), our skin would be sagging etc). So likewise nothing is permanent people may remember you for your pretty face for a few seconds but after that they wouldn’t even be bothered. Even in life you are not going to be remembered for your money or status in society but for your goodwill. The film also conveys that family is everything and it’s so true. People walk in and out of our lives every day but family is the one who will stick by us at all the times.

Isn’t it so true? When you smile you would have an ocean of well wishers but when you are grumpy who would even want to come near you? When we smile it reflects the beauty within us. It gives out so much of warmth, love and togetherness. When you smile you can make another person happy.
In our fast paced lives due to the immense pressure of reaching to the top and earning big bucks we often forget to smile. Have you ever noticed when was the last time you had a wonderful smile on your face or when you greeted somebody with a genuine smile?

So let’s forget about how much we have or what we are let’s just try to remember to smile. More than anything else is sure all of us would like to be remembered as a nice person. In your hardest times its your goodwill and niceness which will earn you brownie points:-)

So yeah do go watch the film am sure you will love it as much as I did.

P.S: Am watching it again today:-)
