Harnessing the vibrant energy in youth towards constructive activities: Part 1

  x I believe that each and every human being possesses immense potential and this is unique to every human. The saddest part is we neither are aware of our own talent nor do we try to understand the hidden talent in us. Very few realize this and go on to become the great achievers in life and history stands a testimony to this. I strongly feel that this tapping our potential must happen at a very young age, particularly in the formative years when we have not yet reached adulthood. India is one country which has got the best demographic dividend , as in, the number of people who are below the age of 35 is very high.

So the bottom line is whatever you feed the mind and if done repeatedly several times, the m

What is Life - Part 3

  I would like to continue my comparison of life with another metaphor. This time I would like to compare with a vehicle. By vehicle, I mean it can be a two-wheeler, three wheeler , four wheeler any vehicle in which a human can travel from point A to point B. Let me consider a four wheeler. Now the body of the four wheeler can be compared to the human body. The driver of the vehicle is like the soul of the body. Just like the driver and the vehicle are different, similarly the soul and the body are different. However the vehicle is used to move from one point to the other. Similarly we can consider life as a journey and move from place to place. Now let us see how a vehicle can be compared to life in more depth. As I said, the body of the vehicle is like our human body. The steering of the vehicle can be rotated as per our desire, following which the vehicle tends to   move in that direction. Similarly, our intellect is like the steering. Based on what decisions the intellect makes
