The Gift of Complaining

We have been gifted with this life and what do we do? And yet the most we use is the gift of complaining. Complain about everything!! 

When will we stop complaining? We started the moment we gained consciousness about the world. Man has turned out to be far more demanding than he used to be, I think. Or is it like man was designed that way?

We hunted for animals, no clothes to wear, only caves to live. We wanted something better. We moved on to better tools, fire, we moved to villages. And then I don't know.. something like that happened.. And then something else happened.. and then here we are staring at our computer screens and living a far more sophisticated life than our forefathers.

But are you satisfied with what you have? Do you think you are gifted? The answer is probably no. Even I am going to say no. I want more. Why can't I be satisfied with what I have already? May be because I don't know the value of what I have. I am no big head yogi to give you or myself any advice about being satisfied with what is already there.

But I think I should stop complaining. I think you should stop complaining too. Whenever you feel like complaining I want you to see these two videos and think how gifted you are:

Those kids in the above videos don't have two important things that you have! There are people who don't have more than that. I know for sure that just watching these two videos is not going to make me or you stop complaining forever.

What I am aiming at is the love and compassion you are feeling for those kids right now. And the sense of peace you are feeling right now. And the fact that you appreciate that you are reading this blog with your eyes while you listen to your favorite music and you are more gifted than many other.

Stay in peace with your life for at the least a few minutes! Peace.

P.S: Thanks to Asha for mentioning one of the above videos in her blog which in turn inspired me to think this through.


  1. Have you noticed kids in the own world, they talk to themselves, move around.

    When they grow up, they just forget their world.
    Equivalent to how they perform in LKG-> 1st std. Can I even say, Ignorance is bliss :)

  2. Excellent thought kums....True!! it takes time for people to realize the truth..But are they really ready to make the change possible..????

  3. @Vinodvv I totally agree man! I still do that sometimes but being a kid is always more awesome.. so curious, so happy and so easy.. *sigh*
    @Kavitha nobody is ready to change.. im only trying to say that try to be at peace with yourself from time to time..

  4. It always takes a pinch for every one to wake up!!! >> out of this so called busy world around them >> Thanks for the pinch>>> will be awake for few mins >> [video]

  5. In a sense, they remember every slick trick that Humankind has ever devised.Trixia loathedthose pictures.The corset has been around as early as the 16th century.They have other things in common aside form what you had in mind.My first experience was when I was about 4.I told you, that one s not much of a translator.Maybe.. . . But then the old man looked up at Sammy and there was a desperate stubbornness in his stare. And the
    applause.Today, his lack of attention was not an act.He was lying in near zero gee, snug in a warm bed.. . .More important, she had Podmaster-level access.You are well placed.Rita and some of the others took to visualizing human children to go with the voices.Thank the Lord of All Trade.That disruption was not automatically revealed to the Emergent snoops.The blond was a boor and a bully, but it hadn t mattered then. More than anything, this looked like a decapitating strike but why weren t they shooting? Elno Coldhaven edged back around his desk, his
    reaching for some unseen drawer.

  7. I was very pleased to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoyed every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post.

  8. From the time a baby learns to fuss when nothing is wrong until they begin to speak and want it now. I have found the verse in the Bible that says, "I have learned in any situation to be content." is a good verse. We should be thankful for more and begin to count our blessings and not our sorrows.

Manmadhan Ambu - A Late Review

A good try by Kamal Hassan. Even if not spectacular it isn't that bad!

Loved the casting. As usual Kamal steals the show, Sangeetha and Madhavan have done a good job. Trisha looks so polished in the movie! She can confidently dub for her roles from now on.

A flock of birds fly across the sky, Kamal looks at them and that tiny tear in the eye! Perfect!

Sangeetha!! Wow!! She is too good, really really good. And all those spoonerisms.. haha.. but sadly not many catch it.. well, thats typical in Kamal movies. The kid bodyguard is sooo cute!

Missed the Kamal Kavidhai a lot. Since the song is gone, we miss the moment the hero and the heroine fall in love.

May be if the movie was shortened into an hour and a half without some sentiments and songs it would have been more fast paced.

P.S: I am a Kamal Hassan fan. So if you think the review is biased, sure it is :) :) :)

From Frogs to The Prince!

What if I wrote short open letters to all the frogs that I met in my life? Don't ask me what triggered this thought process I don't remember now, mom brains! With a toddler around it is a miracle I managed to write this blog, all credits to the notes I wrote down.

I am not going to mention names here. But if you are in this list you will know its you.

Frog #1

I knew you weren't interested in me and that you were too good for me. But then, you were perfect for my adolescent hormones, thank you for that. But the way I turned out, you might regret letting me go unnoticed.

Frog #2

Man, I was bowled over by the brains and the intelligent banter. I was quite disappointed with the looks department but then was matured enough to let it go, until one fine day you turned out to be some psycho blah blah blah stalker types. I have absolutely no regrets.

Frog #3

This was a classic case of peer pressure. I liked you but crushing on you was a side effect of having mutual friends who tho…

To the fussy maiden!

I recently took part in a woman's forum meeting at work. The issue that was mostly discussed was men staring at women for their looks, their clothes etc etc etc.
I don't know how long it will take women to realize that when we dress up all glam, we are surely going to get some "appreciative" glances every now and then. Making a fuss about it is a waste of time! You could do that when you want to show off that you are getting some attention.
Women dress up, and men get attracted. Thats basic human nature. The animal instinct. You shouldn't be complaining about it!
The pervs do the wolf whistles and stuff to get attention. You should not react to them, react as in get angry, flirty, upset, happy, everything counts. That means that they win! This is one valuable lesson to remember: learn to ignore.
Nothing can rebuff them like being ignored.
I don't know how many ladies are going to get upset about this post, and I frankly think I am right.
If you do not have e…
