I remember the time when my principal made the whole of class 12th batch, scrub our tables with a "regmal"on which there were numerous scribbles. At that time we felt it was very thoughtless of her, an unkind act , but later when she gave us a reason , it became a lesson for life.
She said that when we commit a sin, we have to repent, because no one else can do that for us, is it logical that a robber robs a house and his poor parents pay for his deeds....in the same way when we scribble on our desks, the same desks on which we write our exams, we spend the maximum part of our day, is it fair that a carpenter works hard to rectify our mistake and then again when we come back from our vacations we damage them conviniently!
Yes, that day each one of us scrubbed our desk and found them all polished and new when we came back from our vacations....we didn't damage them again because we had learnt our lesson!
I guess some people don't feel responsible towards the property outside their homes, I'd like to ask such people, what would happen if a group of monkeys are left in their house and they tamper with their property...how would it feel? This is something one should really think about.
We are humans, God has given us something called logic and reasoning, he has asked us to use it in order to lead a good life, then why is it that sometimes our acts just don't portray us as logical beings??
Lets get back to where we began..the historical monuments...a precious part of our history...a special part of the memories related to the golden past of our land..a witness that saw a nation in making...what right do we have to engrave nonsensical stuff on our monuments and what would we get out of it??
When we enter a monument we feel like a part of history, it's a different experience and a soulful one, observing the walls we get to know about the architecture of those times, the way everything was brilliantly designed, the arches, the floor, the grand entrance, we follow the details and all of a sudden our eyes fall on a ugly engraving on one of the walls.."Seema loves Himesh"!!!! God! why does Seema have to ruin a precious piece of history to love Himesh????There are loads of such unsolved queries, I wish we could make them repair the walls, so that they learn a lesson for life, it would have made their engraved love all the more stronger ;)
If we do not think about harming our personal property, what right do we have to harm something that belongs to the nation...It's shameful and an extremely selfish behaviour and it's hightime that such people realise their mistake.
Freinds, life is a journey and each day is a lesson. It's important to learn good things and to abandon the bad ones on the last station that we've already left. We all make mistakes, but those who learn from their mistakes, are the ones who have lived life in the real sense, because it's only then can the world be made a better place.
Once someone asked me to define success..... According to me, the person whose conscience gives him/her a clean chit by the end of the day, is the one who has been most successful!
