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.

  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.

The Story of My Daughter's Birth

The pregnancy was a surprise. We hadn't really planned on having a baby yet and suddenly there it was those most wanted "two lines" on the home pregnancy test! I was shocked at first. I wasn't ready. But, eventually the mom instinct took over and it was love.

You get a variety of advice from everybody. Everybody is a well-wisher in the traditional indian society. For the same question you will get thousand different answers. None of it is right or wrong. What works for you is what is right.

I never did any walking. Only a little, just running errands and stuff. I did not sit up in bed every time I needed to turn during sleep. That would have made it even worse. The hardships during pregnancy is nothing close to what happens during labor. Mine is not one of those easy peasy the baby just slipped right out stories! I know why though I did not do anything to facilitate that!

I was in my 38th week. It was a thursday, I was visiting my gynec for a routine now weekly chec…

What does love mean to me?

When I hit puberty I thought love was all about kissing and having butterflies in your stomach.When I grew up a little I replaced kissing with sex and the butterflies remained.Now the definition has changed in all ways possible. I've learned that there isn't just the romantic Love there is more to it.It could be the heart swelling when you see your child do something or the smile you have when you think of your parent. This year I've decided that my daughter is my valentine. Sleepless nights and the constant anxiety are all totally worth it. The sloppy kisses that I get on rare mornings are my greatest motivator.To me love is all about the level of comfort I have with a person. You really love each other if you can fart and burp to your heart's content in each other's company. If you can have conversations about that then you are in the next level, haha!Everybody sees love differently but most would agree on the comfort part. My friend Srilakshmi and I see things d…

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…
