Go on till you reach the end!


‘Begin at the beginning’, the king said gravely,

‘and go on till you come to the end;then stop.’

– Alice’s adventures in wonderland, Lewis Carroll

These are some words well said. We all start of with a dream, make efforts,devote time and energy but how many of us reach the end? Do we have the patience to reach the end?  Do you realize how near you were when you gave up?

Its not just about the end,Sometimes it can be the beginning which is the toughest. But once we take those first steps towards our goal, be determined and committed to an unrelenting pursuit of our dreams, then nobody can stop us from reaching the stars other than ourselves.

We need to have a positive outlook,an ability to introspect and set goals, follow the path to our goal with commitment and achieve ones’s desire. It’s alright to start small than never start!

Most importantly,mere reading and agreeing with this would not help, so go ahead, infuse your life with action and WAKE UP to make those dreams come true !

WORDS CRUSH WEDNESDAY!


Today’s qoute for words crush Wednesday:

 “so kyon manda aakheye jit jamme rajan”

which means, ‘why call a woman inferior? It is her who gives birth to great kings’

Challenge accepted!

This verse is  by Guru Nanak Dev Ji from ‘Asa di Var’ hymn composed by him.

This is a powerful qoute relevant even today. It was composed at a time when woman faced prejudice and were given unequal status as compared to men.

In medieval India, condition of woman deteriorated highly, and  a widowed woman wasn’t allowed to wear coloured clothes or remarry, and in a ritual called ‘sati’ she was thrown in the pyre burning her husband’s body. The reason? Because what would she do on earth, when her husband isn’t there? She should go with him.

Moreover,female feticide was rampant. (it still is, but the situation has improved highly).The condition was such that sometimes people remarried just because the first wife couldn’t give birth to a son.

Even today, a woman faces discrimination in some form or the other, she has to prove her worth everywhere. But from then to now, things have changed for the better.

 Now I ask you, what is your opinion on the issue? We all come from varied societies, and it would be a lot different from your point of view. Do leave a reply in the comments section.

As I put the lid on, I leave for you the whole stanza translated in English :

From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and

married.

Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.

When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.

So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.

From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.
