Miserable Puppies...

Last weekend I came across a bunch of three small puppies beside our boundary wall. There was no trace of their mother, though! The puppies were visibly ill, immovable and sick. Bugs and pests found their body a good place to inhabit. I couldn’t have much to do for them except shifting them a little so that they got enough sunlight to keep themselves warm. Winter has already set in here the northern part of India. The season is equally troublesome to the poor people and the inferior animals. Anyway, I forgot the puppies’ presence altogether until when in the evening I heard their cries. I and my brother took the searchlight promptly and rushed only to discover that two puppies were lying the same way on the ground.

Experience @ Howrah station

What I saw yesterday at Howrah station was one of the gory pictures the ‘shining’ India still paints. There are small mal-nourished children who make the platforms their home in almost all big railway stations. They smoke thrown out cigarette butts. They suck dendrite tubes. Passengers try to keep safe distance from these dirty kids. They sometimes broom the rail compartments in the hope of earning a few rupees. They also go begging sometimes putting a sorrow face and telling you that he/she has not eaten anything through out day. They grow up to be goons. What else one can be who has such a pathetic childhood?

They need a BREAK

Yesterday I witnessed a mention-worthy paradox – one of my friends who was working in a Multinational Company(MNC) for 2 years wants a break from the daily boring uninteresting unsatisfying scores while my another friend who has just passed out from college desperately needs a break, an opportunity to push himself into a good-paying BPO(Business Process Outsourcing) company! To further clarify what my first friend actually meant when he said he needed a break, I asked him whether he needed more money. He said that he wanted a change. He was becoming stagnant in his present job. There was no job satisfaction. And sometimes there was no job (task) at all! My second friend is traveling to another city to find a job. His parent has retired. He has now the responsibility of looking after the family. That’s why he needs a job as soon as possible.

Mind's weired way of working

Our mind works so weirdly that sometimes it becomes very difficult to understand why it reacts in particular ways in certain situations. Though, I believe, as for every other happening there is a cause behind our mind’s peculiar act - a certain pre-conditioning so to say. As everybody probably observed that if your mind is deeply engrossed in some thoughts or if you are worried about or overjoyed over something your mind reacts to certain events differently than it would have responded in other times. Let me tell you one incident.
