For those who are reading this:
Most of us might have felt at some point of time in our lives that we could have been or could be doing much more.
Might have felt that the true potential has not been realized.
Might have had been haunted by thoughts and questions: what if I would have taken some other course?
A thing that we don’t realize is:
After all, whatever we have achieved is nothing short of a feat.
What we have in our possession is not that everyone has a privilege of claiming.
Be it the:
Other material possessions,
This feeling of disappointment,
This constant need to prove to the world,
This inability of being able to appreciate and praise others for so called small things in life.
Does it even register:
Just few words of genuine praise can change or even save someone’s life,
Just few words of courtesy can make someone’s day,
Jadoo ki jhappi (an affectionate hug) of Munna Bhai does work,
Considering we are maintaining social distancing in these times,
Considering people are getting depressed for so many reasons,
What’s stopping us from offering something that doesn’t take a lot of effort and could indeed impact lives in the real sense!
So, my dear friends, please don’t stop yourself from offering this genuine praise,
Whosoever comes in contact with you in these challenging times.
Might even act as a life saving fresh breath of air to the affected and the depressed.
Wondering what this G is for?
To begin with alive in these times,
Getting those all important meals,
The health of our loved ones, family and friends,
There is still hope,
Enabling us to take a break from mindless and senseless lives,
Being able to connect and communicate, courtesy social medial platforms and calling apps,
If these are not enough for one to be grateful,
I wonder what will be!
