The Confident Injured Sparrow

After completing a lecture on Glaucoma, while sitting at my desk in the college I noticed a sparrow. It came and sat on one of the leaves of a coconut tree just in front of my window. It was trying hard to fly. Unfortunately, its trials were not successful. I was observing this for 10-12 minutes and was wondering why it was not able to fly. I then went near the window and saw that it was having some injury and was bleeding. I restricted myself to approach the sparrow as I never wanted to scare it away. All that I was able to do was to observe. Nothing else came to my mind. After a few minutes, with its great efforts, the sparrow successfully flew away with all the freedom!





While I was observing this scenario, one of the very old proverbs clicked my mind, “where there is a will, there is a way”. Almost all the people reading this article might have heard this earlier. I have always observed that for the things we want to happen with a very deep desire, maximum hurdles come in our ways. During such times, if we mislay our patience, our wish will never be fulfilled. One should handle the situation with patience, overcome the hurdles, and achieve their goals. I am very well aware that such theories are easy to write but equally difficult to experience. But this is the fact. There is always something good out of all the negative experiences. This is true also for achieving things after great hard work and efforts. The fruit which we get, after all the hard work, is always the sweetest one.

This situation also teaches us that self-help is the best and most reliable help. If we rely on someone for anything, we will never realize our own capabilities. There is nothing which we cannot do. Our true talent surfaces only during the most difficult times in life. There is always “all or none phenomenon” in our performance.

One should have confidence in one own self. People generally take the help from others due to two main reasons. First, lack of self-confidence. Second is the lack of interest in completing the task, in other words – the laziness. The urge we have in completing our task or the accuracy with which we do it can never be done by others. The most concerned person about one’s problem is one own self.

This sparrow made me think with a deep perspective. It gave me a great enthusiasm to complete the task taken up by myself with self-confidence. It created a sense of new strength in me. Nothing in this world happens for no reason. We always get to learn out of every good and bad thing happening to us. Good experiences build up confidence in us and bad experiences teach us new lessons in life.

Keep trying... Keep succeeding...

Absolute Reunion

“Family”.… a word we all have heard. And most of us are blessed to have the privilege to live our life with the family. All the problems can be fought off when we have the support of our family. Family helps us stay calm, confident and strong during the tough times of life; it is also the hub of happiness, and we always cherish our good moments with them. They are the people we want to go to during all our good and the bad times.


With the advancement and progression in our professional world, the physical distance is increasing between the family members. In the present scenario, we are unable to stay with our parents and siblings, which was not the case in the early world.

Life Is Unpredictable

At times, life seems to be just so simple and sometimes the face of life is very complicated. And this is the reason for life being so capricious. One struggles for achieving a lot of things in life, may it be in one’s personal life or professional well-being.

The whole of our life is just not enough to understand its real denotation, and on a contrary, sometimes just a single moment is more than enough to sense the essence of the whole life. And this depends on the company of the people we live in. I am sure that 27 years are not enough to give any bottom-line proclamation about life. But I have experienced a lot of things in the journey of my life till date. These experiences have taught me many crucial chapters of life. From a pool of all these experiences, I can articulate that life is unpredictable.

A Few Drops From A Mighty Ocean

One fine day I was staring at the cloud which was hiding the sun. Slowly the cloud was moving and some silver rays were shining. Gradually the silver rays got converted into the golden rays and the sun was again shining brightly. This is the situation very similar to our life. The seed of our life starts germinating when we come on this earth with all good things around. Then as we grow up the dark clouds of problems, worries and obstacles hurdle our way. But as we start working on them with confidence and faith, these clouds move a bit and we can see the silver rays of hope. We still work hard and finally, we can see the golden rays of success and happiness, and we again shine with all our glow and radiance like a bright sun.
