Let The Nature In....

When we spend time in the company of Nature, we feel alive, we feel refreshed. Those of us trapped in the nine-to-five are always looking for the long weekend to head out of the city limits, to get closer to a nature environment. But do we always need to travel far to get in touch with Nature? Perhaps we could embrace the nature that surrounds us all the time. May be all we need is to find some time to look for it, and let it through.  Yesterday afternoon. I know had some tasks to cover, documents to prepare, sessions to attend..... but then it started to rain. And what a beautiful rain it was! So I freed myself for this rain, from the mundane routine of work. Dear rain, I'll make time for you, any day of the week, any time of the day or night. [Full screen and headphones recommended!]

This too, will pass

Once a great Sultan called someone in his court and instructed him to craft a ring. The ring must have an inscription, a sentence, such that, whenever the Sultan would read it, it will bring him to reality. In times of prosperity, it will keep him humble; in times of despair it will keep him from sorrow and depression.  The person returned to him after a few days with a ring, which had inscribed on it :  "This too, will pass". Surely, the moments we pass, the phases of life we go through, are all very temporary and short-lived. No matter how big the achievement, or how huge the failure, or how sad the recent events, this time, will indeed pass.  So in fact, there's nothing to be carried away with. No amount of success should ever make us proud and arrogant. Because it's just a matter of time till it goes away from our life. Similarly, no grief, no loss should ever be able to depress us and send us into dark, deep despair, as surely with time, long or short

Home Office / Online Class Setup V3.0

Wherever I'm gonna put myself to work, whether at office, or at home, I absolutely have to make sure my environment is setup for my needs. My workspace needs to be effective (with just the things I need, nothing more, nothing less) and comfortable. Over the last year or so, my home office has gone through gradual changes. But the current state is something I can be very happy about.
