What is the right order?

Understand- listen- judge… trust…? no.. no.. no…

Trust..Judge.. understand.. listen…??? (Does not seem right?)

Wait, let me explain 🙂

We have all been brought up in the environment of respecting elders, which is imbibed in our culture.

Okay, agreed!

We shall respect not just elders but even our younger ones. Does that mean that you should not correct a fellow human being (elders nor younger ones) from doing mistakes which can lead them to lose relationships and career?

That is not called as giving respect.

Here comes different perspectives: [All that I have sadly witnessed and heard from my peers and mentees]

  1. If I respect my elders, I should not correct them when they make mistakes. (Good and bad is derived from their gyan in to our heads) Still, no.. you are not supposed to tell even with due respect that their deeds can hurt someone
  2. Using technology is a crime, just because they don’t use it (Why do u fiddle with your phone?? 24/7??). When you do not use a particular technology, how difficult it becomes to explain what I am doing (The user’s mind voice)
  3. When you make a valid statement (suggestion), which by chance sounds better than what the elders have told, you are a arrogant child!! What an atrocious behavior?!!

Today, the world’s youngest CEO is a 12 year old with the grit and knowledge to develop mobile applications and runs his own firm.

TWIST NUMBER 1:

The saddest part of this trend is, parents fail to build something fundamental in their lives, towards their children- THE TRUST

Putting their life and soul, sacrificing day and night, compromising their small and big wishes for the little soul they had brought to this Earth, ultimately comes one day, parents tend to become narrow minded and judgmental to assess that their child can be only THIS (whatever opinion is on mind). You see, that is very easy.

Parents take great effort in building a child’s character. The child is brought up in certain surroundings. We can only mold the child. But it is always easy to understand without being judgmental. Why are we complicating this gifted bond?

TWIST NUMBER 2:

Parent tends to emphasize their decisions on their children which again is to simply sacrifice their children’ dreams and ambitions. Be it career or relationship. Is it for this reason that so much effort was put in to nurture a young soul?

Solution??

It is simple 🙂

Avoid being judgmental. Life becomes easy. Then you tend to listen. Then build trust. Then you have the rights to understand someone. (Yes, in that order only! ) 🙂 Please do not bring Ego in to any relationship.

Listen to human beings- be it young or old. After all, each one is Unique! 😉 

Now do not think how old I should be… That is what you were reading all this while that it is not a matter of fact 🙂

POLLUTION – the new chimneys and cooling towers on wheels

Dedication from scooldudes for Earth Day

Neck pain for a 12 year old, knee pain for a 15 year old, headaches and asthma for a 6 year old. Muscles are already tired and exhausted.

There was a time when kids and youngsters were strong and as they grew older while crossing teenage, it was a scenario they always felt proud of being young, strong and healthy.

Today we get anything and everything with more than enough adulteration as food and supplements for the livelihood. And still they are expected to be Hemans and supermans, also superwomen,

Health is Wealth. This pollution that we live in today with, is deteriorating the stamina along with dreams, aspirations and some noble thoughts which can make the universe better.

Simple things can make the world better.

  • When you find an auto or a truck, or any vehicle for that instance, which can change your fabric color and alters your breathing process through its smoke, pick your sixth finger (Mobile phone) and dial to the pollution control authority and leave a message about the HIGH EMISSION/ Chimney vehicle. I suppose it was a silencer that was originally fixed.. Anyways!

         

  • Another tip, turn off your vehicle at signal and ensure that you save fuel and contribute less to the pollution rate. Also, please do service your vehicles.

Lets save our Mother Earth for our future generation to live happily and healthily!

Vacation time!! When kids ask…”what else to do? ” :) :)

This article is going to talk about a very small activity, which we think is to pass time, but benefits beyond our understanding

With video games and the attractive “good guys saving the universe” serials queuing the idiot box, its sad to know that children and teenagers are just  becoming couch potatoes.

Quiz them and pat… comes the answer “what else to do? “

Here is one simple yet engrossing activity that can be more intensive to mind than we understand 🙂

JIGSAW PUZZLES

Working on puzzles and solving them provides us with very many helpful benefits.

  • First of all it makes us alert, increases our concentration, expands our creativity.
  • On the other hand, looking at the images constantly helps us practice visualization, which is again good aid for any physical activity that succeeds mental activity.
  • It also affects our physical health by lowering our breath rate, reducing heart rate and blood pressure too.
  • Working on jigsaw puzzles and focusing on the same image for longer periods can actually turn out more like meditations and induce a certain calmness and peace in the mind. Mind will now be focused only visualizing the image in front and will concentrate on this alone in exclusion to everything else around him.
  • Thereby he arrives at a meditative and peaceful stage where no other thoughts occur to disturb his tranquility.

Bhuvana says, these days we also have 10 feet long puzzles which occupies the whole room. Kids and parents together can have fun by solving that! Why not the Jigsaw instead of TV??
