Sea and Me

I belong to the south coast of Karnataka, in India, which means sea and beaches are the part of our life. It is bit difficult for me to explain and bit difficult for others to understand the connection that one can have with the deep blue sea and its waves.

In my early days we often use to visit this place only with family and friends but never had that connection. For me it was just a sea to have fun and the sand of the beach to play with.

But as I started growing old my perspective changed towards this place and I started enjoying going to this place all alone. Sometimes due choice and sometimes due to no options. You known how things change when we start growing most of the time\n friends get separated for various reasons and sometimes you just want to be alone and away from the daily routines.

That is how I discovered the connection between this sea and me when one weekend, tired of too many thoughts about the future, career and other things. I went alone to the beach it was evening of winter and the breeze was at it’s best I allocated my place bit far on the stone from the crowd. I thought I was alone and started thinking about my worries the more I went in-depth of my worries the sound of the sea waves started increasing and after some time I felt a strange connection between sea and my mind without the words. That day when I got up after few hours watching the sea waves the feeling I had been exactly the same that you feel when you have a long discussion with someone.

I didn’t speak a word and I didn’t hear any words, there was only the sound of the breeze and the waves but still felt like I spoke about my thoughts in my mind and those breezes and the waves had acknowledged that thought on my mind.

And now theses waves at this beach had become so familiar that almost every weekend I go to this beach and have a conversation with these waves with some hot cone or cup of a coffee. Sometimes it reciprocates and sometimes it silently acknowledges to my thoughts.  Sea inspires to deal with the ups and downs of the life the way its deals with the Tides in them.

Not sure its real or just my imagination, whatever it may be but I had felt the connection with this place called “Malpe Beach“.

When I See You

Their love was different every time he kicked her stomach she loved him more. She waited for the time to complain about the pain and the trouble she had due to his mischievous. And when she finally holds him in her arms, wrapped in the pink cloth. She said I had forgotten all the pain and forgiven you for all the trouble of 9 months just when I see you.

Wisdom of Words:

Today the world is consists of people with high intelligence and great academic knowledge. But the question is does only the intelligence and academic knowledge all it takes to succeed in life? or in difficult situations of life?. Because when the mind became good at taking calculated steps people often stop taking risks.

Either we are afraid to take risk or people around us, fill us with the negative thoughts of the consequences of taking risk. If one sees the final tally of his decisions at the end of this life on death-bed he will find that the regret of not taking the risk to achieve his dreams is more than the satisfaction of avoiding the risk.

frogs-1030278_1280
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs crowded around the pit and saw how deep it was, they told the two frogs that there was no hope left for them. However, the two frogs decided to ignore what the others were saying and they proceeded to try to jump out of the pit. Despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of the pit were still saying that they should just give up. That they would never make it out.

Eventually, one of the frogs took heed to what the others were saying and he gave up, falling down to his failure. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just give up.

He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?”. The Frog was actually deaf!!!

The frog said to them, “Thank you for encouraging the entire time”.

Words can have a big effect on other’s lives. Let’s Think about what we say before it comes out of our mouth. It might just be the difference between success & failure!!!
