Abyss

Every experience be it good or extremely bad has something to teach, learn from and improve on thereafter. You have certain dreams, your wishlists or expectations but things turn out to be the complete opposite. Maybe this is the abyss, maybe not. Maybe all life events are on the flat curve. Seeking happiness is the main cause of distress and unhappiness. Embrace the what is.

I hope

Andy Dufresne: You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific?
Red: No.
Andy Dufresne: They say it has no memory. That’s where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.
Red: Let me tell you something my friend.
Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.

Andy Dufresne: [in letter to Red] Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
..
[last lines]
Red: [narrating] I find I’m so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

Shawshanks Redemption is much more than just a movie. I always look to the above passage and image when I am down, clueless, hopeless. No I can’t be hopeless but hope drives me crazy, but it is necessary to keep that flame alive.

Andy taught me to make the very best of whatever situation you are in, and even when life seems to be unfair or has nothing much to offer, don’t let it steal one thing from you ‘hope’. That is why I hope.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it

An expert from The Second Himalayan Expedition, by the Scottish mountaineer W.H.Murray

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a great respect for one of Goethe’s couples:
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”

A whole stream of events … which no man could have dreamt would have come by his way

Has anyone written to the Prime Minister of India and received a reply?

Answer on @Quora by Sarvesh Singh to Has anyone written to the Prime Minister of India and received a reply?

Answer by Sarvesh Singh:

I just found this somewhere

Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to the rescue of a professor in Noida. Former Amity University professor Kavita Surbhi wrote to the Prime Minister about how the university hadn't given her gratuity when she quit.

The university reportedly owed her Rs 40,000 in gratuity. The Prime Minister's Office immediately stepped in and contacted the University.

The university apologised to the professor and gave her Rs 1.6 lakh instead of Rs 40,000.

"After resigning from my job, I kept waiting for gratuity but it never came. Then I got in touch with the PM, who assured me that they will look into the matter," said Professor Kavita.

"Within 15 days, they replied and all through the process, they kept assuring me that justice will be done," she added.

Teacher Has Students Write Letters To Themselves and Sends Them 20 Years Later

It would be so exciting to read one such .. I wish my teacher had made me write one too …

Blanc10's Blog

Found this great video from WestJet about a teacher who had his students write themselves a 10 page letter to themselves 20 years in the future. Now that 20 years have past, he “tracks down” his former students and sends them their letters. This story is amazing. I couldn’t imagine how much time and effort is spent finding out where all of the students have gone.

I agree with the fact that traditional snail mail has almost been forgotten, especially by us millennials. It’s a lost art. We don’t even see cursive handwriting taught in our schools anymore.

Kudos goes out to WestJet for making this video and to the Goulet Pen Company for featuring this story on their Facebook Page.
