Swing Ride, Mood v/s Life!

Everything in life is not constant. Some day we are happy, other day we are sad. All this is part of our mood. And its swing, change, move but it never stays constant. Why is that so? Why can’t we control it? We are always trapped in it. Either we move with it or we get upset with it or we make others upset with it. It’s so obvious. It’s written on our face what kind of mood we are having?
What makes it change? What makes us change it? However you observe yourself or surrounding, you can never figure out what’s the reason behind Mood Swings. Some of you know what is the reason behind it, but that’s not always the case. When we are ill, we are sad, when we are with our loved ones, we are happy. When we are celebrating, we are excited.

Rasheed is very brutal and violent in nature who takes out his anger on Mariam every time especially after Marian failed to give him a child. Laila on the other hand is born to modern & educated family. She is brought up in an environment where education to girl child is important. She also has love inter…

Book Review: The Prophet

The Prophet.. Sign towards the Spiritual Road !!!

Going on with my book reading I took the thinnest book I can find in my pending list of “Books to read”, THE PROPHET By Khalil Gibran. And frankly this will be the only book which I liked after “The Monk who sold his Ferrari”. The philosophy in this book is like those which you can apply in day to day life. It’s not difficult to understand life but it’s difficult to understand ourselves.
I will write different review for this book. The reason for this is,
1: this book doesn’t have any story but more like one person sharing his views on different aspect of life. 2: I want to share the knowledge of this book thru the small note on each part of life by the author. 3: I am bored of writing in my own language. Just kidding!
So it starts with the arrival of the Ship. After years of waiting, the time has come to move on & live yet another life. Is there pain to leave the place or is it joy of the ship coming? Whatever it is, the time doesn’…
