Positive Attitude towards learning

Whenever I come online, I see one or two posts with a flood of comments, I check the post and see what?People are fighting over the wrong usage of sentence, making fun of the person who uploaded the status, pasting links and debasing each other and a few more related status updates addressing to anonymous.Why don't people have an attitude of learning and sharing? It is good if you know better than others but the more you're educated the more polite you should be.Mostly these people are the young bloods. Elder people never care to correct, which is equally wrong..If seniors won't correct and guide us, we will entangle the small threads of wrong/lacked knowledge and keep fighting.I understand nobody has got time to correct others, even if you try to correct somebody, you're misunderstood for insulting (because you correct publicly)Whenever I make mistakes most of the times I get inbox messages from English professors of different university to correct myself.I feel no shame to ask even a single word and most of the people I ping, know it. (now she will eat brains on a particular thing).Sometimes, my juniors correct me, I find no shame or embarrassment into it. I find no shame to learn from anybody.When it comes to English, we must understand and accept it is our second language acquisition and we can be wrong at any stage.Or in any field, Modeling/photography/Films, Music and arts/ technical/ academic/professional.When you've chosen a particular field, you research about it. It is not necessary that from whatever source you have learnt is correct.No matter whatever we've achieved in life, we will be learners.Yes,this must be kept in mind that the way you point out mistakes or have a good faith of correcting someone, please be polite and provide your statement with reasonsAnd supports.Use the social platform to learn and share instead of showing yourself to be superior than others.Why are we so much into self proclamation and portraying 'being perfectionist'?Why don't we have a positive attitude towards learning?Arrogance and the nature of not accepting mistakes can lead you to the valley of doom..Have an open mind and kind heart.Remember,If you ask questions, you can be considered a fool for once,but If you don't ask, you will be a fool for lifetime.Rest is up to your way of perceiving and understanding the things.. :)

The Fame

"Fame is the responsibility, the perennial discipline, the concubine who solicits and imbibes, bit by bit, the love, the relations, the serenity, and the soul, leaving behind the subaqueous plaudits that pinch to the core.. "
- Himmilicious

Explanation: The name and Fame has nothing good in it, just a huge crowd.. Popularity is not the luxury of life but a continuous effort, the hard work. It is like the prostitute who demands and engulfs more and more, the love from your life, the relations, the peace and you soul.. What do you get? the sound of deep round of applause that pinches your ears and aches the core of your heart.. yet, the most desired thing, we want..

Tulsi Banerji

"Tulsi Banerji"
A very beautiful girl of twenty five years. She has big grey eyes and light brown long hair. Short height and chubby cheeks. Around two and a half years back, she got married to my uncle's son. (A friend of my father). Love marriage it was, after five years of love courtship.
Tulsi belongs to a poor bengali family, her father is a painter. My uncle's son married her because of her beauty- I think so, what else could be the reason to fall in love.
My Uncle's son, did not complete his higher secondary(that Tulsi came to know after marriage) and Tulsi failed her tenth class as well. My uncle and late aunt were working with supreme court of India.

I accosted Tulsi a day before yesterday. she comes to my place to learn classical music from my mother. I was aware of the classes my mother giving her, but we never interacted personally except formal "namaste".
She came to me and asked for some help regarding National Open School to complete 10th and 12th. I guided her to go for some vocational courses along with.
She started praising my helpful nature and I took it as the token of gratitude. Then she praised my beauty and my achievements, then moved to my lifestyle and the money I'm earning, she admired my indulgence with books and the support of my parents.
By now I could figure out that it's not the admiration but the envy and her pain of spoiling her life, but I didn't take it in ill manner and understood her present mental situation.
I was right, after a while she started crying and regretting what she had done to her life. she asked me if I can arrange a job of minimum five thousand rupees for her survival because she wants to leave her husband.

I could but I didn't.

She further explained a few afflictions that whacked the feminist inside me.
~ She is beaten brutally at no point by her husband.
~ she is not given money, neither allowed to work and pursue further studies.
~ Her husband doesn't give her money to buy lingerie but bought himself a samsung note. (I was aware of this nature because his father - my uncle complaints about it to my father)
~ They don't have physical relationship but Tulsi's husband has no extramarital affair as well.He is not willing to have baby with Tulsi.
~ My late aunt was a patient of paralysis. My uncle's son married tulsi to have a "permanent nurse", No doubts, Tulsi served her duties, my mother saw her cleaning the waste of the patient.

And many more tortures of the same fashion that I cannot write because of extreme abuses and sickness. I will take a long to write about her miseries.Today she lives with her husband and father in law. She can take legal actions but do not belong to a financially and socially sound family background. Many legal aids and actions could be taken but she is not aware of it and scared because she has nowhere to go and survive.

I cannot help her because of the family relations, but I am teaching her English.
I have provided her with some books and stationaries, paid her 1500 Rs to fill exam form and complete her studies and my mother is teaching her knitting and music.
I did my best possible and motivated her to complete her studies in an year and look for a beautiful life ahead.
It was a love marriage of today's generation. people do not concentrate on their career and ruin their lives in the hormonal web of relationships. I am not against these relationship. The girl is the reason of her own miseries. 90% mistakes are done by her but she paid enough and still paying for it.

I am bound by family relationship else I'd have called the women's cell by now and taken some serious legal action against the monster-duo. Just waiting for the day to have an eye contact with the "man" I used to play with in my childhood. He seriously going to listen 'something' in Hindi till his ears bleed.(unofficially)

I did the best possible I could at the present situation and I am teaching her. Education is the only power you have in this cruel world. I am sad for her, but trying to make her smile and build the confidence. :)

Love..

I don't regret what you have said and done..
Because that is you...
I regret what I have replied and become..
Because that was never me..
I hurt you, You hurt me,
I love you baby, I am sorry,
Some things are meant to set apart,
Our souls are connected by heart,
I may never hear you again,
I promise, I will never cry in pain,
The marks of your pecks on my chubby cheeks
Days don't smile and nights are weak,
I wish to close my eyes 
and your arms around my neck,
I wish I could say,
Baby,
please come back..

Literary literal

Respected Authors and Poets.
Don't write anything and everything you see, experience, feel, percept, prejudice, suffer, conclude, inherit about..
I tell you, after decades, if you will be read and studied, students will curse you for writing such stuff.
Please don't write 'How you used toilet paper to wipe your tears when you were crying alone in sulabh shauchalaya after breakup'
Avoid writing about that dog who was scratching his ears and inspired you to metaphorically write about the itch you have for writing..
No more cuckoo bird's descriptions, pooping on a bald man's head.
No more of your sexual desires with the god you worship..
I'm warning you.. don't get your poor soul cursed after a couple of decade of your death..
Sincerely
Literature students suffering
Just for the sake of degree who have technically and practically nothing to do with your imaginary character Mr.Godot or How you romance with Hari and How you feel when you don't get him..

Your Name On My Wrist



"Your name on my wrist"



Walking down the streets of gold,
The touch of Midas on each hold,
Your memories spread the lashes,
Our love was like a phoenix, to burn into ashes..

Plucking the roses from the garden of shadows,
Looking at the sunset, walking the meadows,
Humming birds swinging, relishing the mist,
The anecdotes of our love are written on my wrist..

Breezeway spacing the sky and stars,
twinkling, mingling like the toss in the bars,
Gazing at the mist over the tumblers,
Intoxicated people, leaned, and mumblers..

Back to home walking, lurching feet,
Spread bed sheet , the warmth and the heat,
Missing that humming bird, meadow and mist,
Looked at your name written on my wrist..
