The legendary Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam lived and died with a dream of a nation homing a developed population. He dreamt of a future with people like us, the youth having all the best resources is making the planet a better home. We’re a mere 30% of the population today but we’re the 100% of the tomorrow which is yet to come.
You were in love with a boy
His love was like the beginning and the end of everything
He bled sunshine and you saw him as the brightest thing in the room
He made your heart stink into your stomach everytime he said goodbye
He was golden although you faded into amber;
You were nothing compared to him
And here’s the best part
You loved him more than your life.
You jumped into the wells of his eyes as though they were beds of roses
Oh, little did you know
That there were monsters swimming just below the surface
That the dustiest attics of his minds were filled with ghosts
He was drowning in the lake of his dark miseries;
He was pulling himself apart at the seams
With trembling fingers, you tried to sew him back
You offered your shaking hand to pull him back up to the surface
You did everything just so he could have hid first breath after the long dive
Darling, how didn’t you realise?
He never wanted to be saved
And even less, never by your hand
But here’s the worst-
You still loved him so much more than your own life.
Is it its uniqueness, its practicality or its power? According to me, the greatness of an Idea can be measured by the challenges it has to overcome. In other words, an idea isn’t good if no one want to challenge it.
And people (smart people) only challenge those ideas which have something in them. The only ideas that are challenged are the ones which can create the history of the future. The idea that was once thought about 30 years ago by a patient of Dyslexia (learning disorder) about a box of wires that can accompany us in most of our daily tasks sounded way stupid to people and was challenged, of course a hundred times by a million people, but created history when overcoming these challenges, this idea gave birth to first ever Mac computer launched by the Dyslexic man, Steve Jobs.
Actually, these challenges are designed to help our ideas to improve & develop. They are like our reminders for the minor parts that our ideas need to run but are missing them. An idea’s existence depends on 3 main ingredients i.e. passion, hard work and opposition. 2 of these (hard work and passion) automatically increase when we try to reduce the third one.
This whole challenge thing may work perfectly, but we don’t have many examples in real life to prove it. The reason behind this is the lack of braveness and power of acceptance. We need to be brave enough to accept a criticism, examine it and then learn from it. But we do exactly opposite, we choose to deny every criticism, curse it and run from it. This needs to be stopped right now only then the good ideas can survive.
So, how many challenges does your big idea have? Tell me in the comments. Don’t forget to like, share & subscribe for more stuff like this. And follow us on Facebook to keep yourself updated by all our work.
Being a non-native English speaker makes people like me cautious of grammar and spelling when writing anything in English. So today I’m going to share a bit about the friend who saved me from this problem. The program is called Grammarly, I immediately decided to give it a go when I found out about it. Continue reading →
Once there was a girl
Who plucked a rose from her garden every time she started loving someone
As though they were tiny parts of her heart
One for the little kid with his red ball and kites
One for the old lady who lived down the lane
One for her best friend whom she had planned a sleepover with Continue reading →
We’re taught to work and study hard since our childhood for a better tomorrow, but I feel that it’s the time for me at least, to stop and reflect how it works and if it’s the right way to live.
People around the globe, most of them, think it’s worth their while to work hard today for wealthy years of retirement in distant future. But is the ability to have fun received in the age when one can’t barely walk by himself is worth it? These people usually end up losing joyful stuff to only realize that good times aren’t ever materialized.
