Good Living...

Good places, good food, good music what else one need to spend a weekend? I wouldn't dare say that about life. With the advancement of possibly everything our tastes in every sphere has changed. Weekdays are for neck breaking work whereas weekends are meant for chilling out. Now chilling out differs at different levels.

We have barbecues, pool parties, theme parties but just spare a thought for those unfortunate ones who cannot even manage two square meals a day.In the weekend we go to watch a movie and blare our verdict the next day or the same day at social sites but there are people who cannot even sit under the humble fan to beat the heat owing to shortage of electricity, yet who cares. We teach our children 'sharing is caring' but every time the other child tries to play with our child's ball or toy in the park we give a tight smile. Each one of us are madly running after good life, money, power but do we really care about wisdom? I certainly cannot render an opinion that would be the representative of the common population.

You may be wondering what exactly on earth am i referring to? Well, recently an advertisement to remove malnutrition and fight hunger triggered my interest to think about it. Even i am also aware of the fact that simply writing 1500 words isn't going help either but sharing my thoughts can surely help spread the message. The photographs of the malnourished children prompted to think twice each time i wanted to throw any food items. My childhood was spent listening to my parents who always advised not to waste any thing but i always let the wind carry those words along. Now when i have one or two gray strands i do realize what they exactly meant!!!!

Leading a good life is every person's dream but we can always in some way contribute for those unfortunate ones who aren't blessed with the things which we take for granted. Let no child ever go hungry to bed, let no child ever cry for some milk, let every child understand the importance and appreciate what he or she gets. Comparison leads to nowhere and contentment is like sustenance.

Well without getting didactic let me watch or read some more heart melting issues so that i too can learn some invaluable lessons from life. Till then enjoy your weekend!!!!
