Thought for the day – Curious?

image

I have often been the kids in pink in the poster..bored by the doubts and curiosity of others, sometimes even mocking the curious. But taking up chartered accountancy changed the way I have viewed many things and one of them is the ability, courage, and want to ask.

Ask, like your life depends on it
Ask, because it broadens the horizon of the asker and the asked
Ask, because no doubt is silly enough to go unasked
Ask, before its too late
Ask, because there is no such thing as too late
Ask, so that you can ask more
Ask, so that you can do the answering some day
Ask, because you will not know now, but someday you ll know it was worth it πŸ™‚

I pledge to ask and be the curious one henceforth. Do you? πŸ˜€

Keep kalm and wear kalamkari!

Happy Sunday folks πŸ™‚ Hope your weekend plans are up and on in full swing! So my tacky title says it all about my next staple fable. Its my undying love for this light, breezy and oh-so-comfy material which has made me an ardent worshipper of the beautiful kalamkari. For people living in tropical climates such as myself this material is such a relief.
Wear it as a kurta with a plain single colored bottom, or as a pyjama/palazzo (check them out here) or you can even decide to go kalamkari krazy like me and go in for kalamkari jackets like these :

You get these cool jackets and lots of other pretty awesome stuff at hands of india. (Pst…pst.. There is a sale going on on that website currently…hurry πŸ˜› )
Hope you enjoyed this kalamkari segment. Let the heat not get to you, keep kalm with kalamkari! πŸ˜€

Giving Back, its essential!

“Should you return your t-shirts back to your company?”

“No, why do you ask?”

“Because it says ‘Giving Back is essential’ on them”

That was the level of smartness of the kids I spent timeΒ with today πŸ˜€ . So as a CSR initiative of our company, a group of 20 of us got to interact it with a group of 50 kids from a nearby slum. And the result of this, PURE MAGIC! πŸ™‚ It was so encouraging to see these kids being so informed and enthusiastic. And then there was me at that age, :

16954-When-I-Was-A-Kid

So a couple of friends and I did a presentation on health and hygiene (which they received quite well, except for the fact that they pointed out that

  1. We had grown our nails and painted them hideously
  2. We never seemed to be oiling and plaiting our hair
  3. Thank God there wasn’t a third! πŸ˜› )

And then there were a couple of group activities like pot painting, and tower building out of straw to teach them the basic qualities of team work and having a strong foundation (education, family values, etc). And the day ended with lunch!

In total I felt it was a day well-spent and I sure hope the kids felt the same too πŸ™‚

Happy morning!

Yes! This thought is definitely the need of the hour for people like me! I have the tacky knack to worry about several things like work, love, studies, relationships at the same time and put myself and everyone around me in a bad mood.! 😦 Dint do that consciously for a couple of days though (already bragging about it to everyone I know πŸ˜› ) and believe it or not we land ourselves in this dreamy orchard when we stop worrying and start living after all! πŸ˜€
Love!!!
