These digits might look trivial but they mean a lot and lot and lot to me. A year of blogging and a year that added a very special feather in my cap.
On 07/11/2019 when I created my Blog I had no idea that what’s going to happen next. I wasn’t even sure that people will read it or not, forget liking it. Honestly speaking I was like “it’s going to be just my hobby kind of a thing to post a thing or two” but look here I am because of all you lovely people who have been such outstanding readers through this 1 year and have read my blogs no matter even if sometimes they weren’t not that good.
♥️Today I’ll also take a moment to thank my Family for always, literally always supporting me and encouraging me to try something new and follow my dreams & passios(s). And a special thank you to my Mumma for always inspiring me . Also a big thank you to my friends (can’t miss this out 😅).
And obviously I would thank you to you guys for reading my blogs, liking them, for all the appreciation I get through comments. Thank you so much, because I really don’t have enough words today. I want to write a lot but also I am speechless. I have really got more than what I expected.
And at last but not the least thank you God for making me believe in myself and giving me the best of people in my life.
Also today my one more bucket-list dream came true, i.e. to deliver a “thank you speech”😂.
And yes most importantly to everyone reading it out “Nothing is impossible”, Follow your dreams BUT also follow your passion. Even start giving importance to your hobbies (like I did).
You’ve got only one life so do everything, everything that comes to your mind. Some people might call you “unfocused” but remember it’s not the sense of being unfocused BUT it’s all about being alive and being versatile. They aren’t having that element of versatility doesn’t mean you’ll not express yours.
So my amiable readers hope you all are doing well and great. And thank you for giving this post a read. Stay safe. Have a good day !
Cheers to many more years, touchwood🤞🏻.
Keep reading. Keep supporting. Till then Namaste, Allah Hafiz, Rab Rakha, See you🙂 !
So my amiable readers I hope you all are doing well and great. As in the last post I mentioned that soon I’ll be posting about “The self-taught morale”.So here I am, keeping my promise.
So let’s start with an example and that example is a very common one, from my School days. I experienced it when I was in class 7th. And your experience can surely be different than mine.
So when we ( me and some of my friends) were in class 7th, we noticed that some people around us are indulged in “not-so normal” activities. No I am not talking about drug addiction or anything serious like that but at that age (13 years) even abusing somebody was a big deal, right ?
Even today it is a big-deal or it should be a big-deal but people around have made it a fancy thing to show-off (I don’t know how), anyways. So that was the situation, when we found that okay people around us are indulged in all this so we ourselves made a distance from them. And even when everyone was together (unfortunately) we didn’t spoke the way they did because we knewed our “self-morale”. Neither their not our Parents were there with us everytime but some of us self-realised and self-taught ourselves that no matter if no one is watching us, our Parents are not watching us, our Teachers are not watching us BUT still we need to behave and groom ourselves in a correct way.
So as we already discussed in our previous post about the “today’s generation” so let’s clearify the situation.
A generation of broken people, with incomplete dreams, shattered moral values and full of self- disappoinments .
What else are we “as a generation” ?
Tell me if you have a better introduction, anyone ?
This pandemic gave all of us a chance to self-realise, self-examine and self-explore but what we did ? We took it as a vacation, WOAH !
So what’s the problem with the people around and what’s lacking ?
The answer is THE SELF-TAUGHT MORALE.
Every second person here is choking in a way or other because we, the puppets of today’s generation “fear”. We fear of dreaming, we fear of continuing what we have initiated, we fear of the outcomes of our own acts. And most importantly we fear of “responsibilities”. A responsibility to be committed towards our dreams.
We fear of the phrase “how will I focus”. How could you fear of outcomes until you haven’t started ? How would you focus when you don’t know what you want to focus on ?
And for over-coming this you need to set your own standards. Set-up a standard, a standard that who you are, what you should be. A standard that whatever you do you are able to handle it in future, you have courage to accept it in front of “your people” (others should really not matter).
This self-standard setting is very important because
IF YOU THINK THE WORLD AROUND IS ALREADY UNKIND AND FULL OF HATRED THEN YOU, “YOU BETTER DON’T BECOME LIKE THEM”.
There were a lot of “?” in this post. So self-realise, think, “take your time” and answer them.
“Move in line” yes that was exactly our favourite phrase when we were given the responsibility of being prefects in our School (really wanna relive those golden days❤️). As I was also one of the prefect so it was same with me as well. Our first and foremost duty was to stand in corridors at our fixed places after assembly/ recess/lunch and to look out after the discipline. So that’s the reason I choosed the title as it is.
Honestly speaking if you ask me about that one attribute or that one quality that I look out for, in a person, then my answer would be “discipline”.
Whatever you want to be in your life; you want to become a Doctor, an Engineer, an Entrepreneur, Army officer, a Footballer, a Teacher, an IAS officer or may be a successful Blogger, but that one streak that is common in all these professions or I should say in every possible profession is DISCIPLINE.
Without discipline there can be no “wise” achievement. The discipline might seem boring for a particular time but when results are in front of you than you’re surely gonna experience it’s worth.
Discipline should be the backbone for anything and everything. And yes sometimes people might call you old-fashioned, boring, an old crap, also you may get the title of being rude (my personal experience 😅) but instead of taking it seriously you should take it lightly and even in a rather funny way (my personal experience again). Don’t care about what others will say because the other person knows only the one side not the other one, right ?
So coming back from my personal experiences to “The Discipline”, it’s that one major trait that is important to be taught to a person while he is a child. The growth of a child into an adult doesn’t only happens physically or mentally but it majorly depends upon our etiquettes, our morals and of course our manners.
Also I wanna include a very important* point. Let’s talk about the present generation’s scenario or the so-called today’s generation. “This generation is just so ____” (fill-out it with whatever negative remark you’ve listened yourself because I am sure you’ve listened one or the other). And what I feel like is that the major drawback of this generation’s present situation is “lack of discipline” or lack of the “self- taught morale” (will write a post on it for sure).
People are just trying to pull the other one down (literally not everyone), people are just ever-ready to judge others on the basis they themselves aren’t capable of. So why these things are happening ? The crimes, the miss-happenings, the fights, the hatred-spreading game and why the younger generation is a major part of all this.
The answer is lack-of-discipline.
It’s not like they were not taught the etiquettes, the morals or the manners but the problem is, they themselves didn’t have enough courage to drive themselves away from these negative traits or negative people. Or I should directly say that they don’t have enough guts to stand up for the “Truth” and find it easy to be a part of the “Adverse”.
No I am not blaming these people but yes I am suggesting them that let let and let discipline be your basic establishment, just for once, and you can win every race.
So my amiable readers hope you all are doing well and great. And thank you for giving this post a read. Stay safe. Have a good day !
Not known as the God of Cricket. Is neither the no.1 batsman in the world. But this world will never be enough lucky again to get another legend like M.S. Dhoni. Bow down to the coolest man in the history of world cricket.
From the helicopter shot to the DRS decisions, this man is just unbeatable.
We all miss miss him on the field. Hope we’ll get to see him soon🤞. #Jerseyno7💙 #HappyBdayMahi
So my amiable readers hope you all are doing well and great.
First and foremost really sorry for posting it so late. So I’ve been nominated for 3 more prestigious awards by some really amazing bloggers.

The way he portrayed Dhoni Sir is one of the finest performance that this world cinema could ever had.
All India Rank 7 in AIEEE but still left his academic career and entered bollywood. The man with a 440 volt smile, amazing acting skills and above all a heart of gold.
Still shocked to hear about it. We lost a gem today. But now it’s lesson, a life lesson to be taken. Life is precious don’t let your emotions trigger you and take you on a way that you can never come back from. Every sunset is followed by a sunrise so don’t let the dark nights scare you. Sometimes we don’t know what the other person is going through. The prettiest smiles carry the scariest things behind them. So “Talk to others”. Talk to your Family, Friends and solve it out. Yes sometimes people will not understand you but still they’ll try to atleast listen you. And at last pray, because God has every solution.

2. I am just a decent, sober and focused girl who is always ready to help and give advices “if needed”.
3. I am the biggest ever fan of Mr. Virat Kohli. His talent, looks and of course his straight drives are seriously hypnotic. I eagerly wish to meet him one day.
4. You have to try really very hard to beat my humour !

5. What sports do you do?
I love playing Badminton but I am a die-heart cricket fan too.
(I would like to ask same questions to the people I m nominating)
Take a break from your schedule and look around yourself. You’ll end up observing that the people (not all of course) are all ready to pull you down, to criticize you, and to demotivate you.
Everyone wants to win the rat-race no matter how.
Yes competition is good but let’s clarify that “healthy competition is good”.The competition that includes hatred, demotivation, humiliation is not a competition, it’s a war. A war that can be dangerous.
So what to do ?
Help others. Yes that’s the answer, “help others”. Help others because God helps those who help others. And trust me there can be no other wise-advice to achieve the so-called success. Don’t let this unhealthy competition snatch away your morale.
Be an encourager because the world is already full of plenty of critics. ~Anon
Don’t demotivate and humiliate others but on the contrary help them, to help yourself. When a person pulls someone down he doesn’t realises that he’s hurting himself. He doesn’t accepts that it will certainly cause his self-disrespect. He may not realise it at that moment but it destroys him afterwards.
And yes I admit that sometimes helping others can trouble you or can interrupt your way but remember the peace you’ll get, the peace you’ll experience after helping the other person, it will make you more happier.
As far as we consider KARMA, it also teaches us that if we’re doing good to others then ultimately the good will happen with us. And so if you do a good deed then I can bet you that God will never ever let anything wrong happen to you. You just need to wait, wait for your turn, wait for “your time”, God has planned something really special for you (touchwood).
Last but not the least with this I would also like to thank thataligboy.worpress.com for giving this inspirational idea to write about. (Bhai you’re doing a remarkable job). Go and check his blog, he has got some amazing stuff there.
Also with this I hope you all are fine and healthy. Stay home, stay safe and remember help others because because because God helps those who help others.
Fly high, until you reach the sky. Go far, and pluck the stars. People will laugh, and will raise the graph. They’ll pull you down, don’t let them snatch your crown. They’ll demotivate, they’ll hate. But don’t you listen, and go spark your glisten.

June,2018 ; There’s always something magical about family trips. And if you’re exploring mountains it emerges as the icing on the cake .
“Heyyyyy mountainssss”- I shouted on top of my voice as we entered Uttarakhand. It wasn’t first time I was visiting Uttarakhand neither it was the first time I was seeing mountains. But my love for mountains is an endless venture and it’s something I can never grow up to be excited for.
So it was a trip to Haridwar, Uttarakhand because my Aunt’s family stays there so we regularly keep visiting them. Soon we reached our destination. And everyone was excited to meet up after a whole year. We the siblings already started planning that what all we’re gonna do and where we’re gonna visit within that week. So randomly someone suggested to visit Shri Sidhbali Temple in Kotdwar city of Uttarakhand.
So the very next day we headed toward our destination. It was around 75 Kms from home. 75 Kms, 9 people, and infinite trip memories.
Kotdwar is a city situated at an altitude of 1,700m above sea level which is surrounded with thick oak and beautiful blue pine forest in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, India. Kotdwar initially originated from word “Khohdwara” meaning the gateway of river Khoh, since it is located on the bank of river Khoh.
A centre of faith and devotion Shri Sidhbali temple have been a place of meditation of many great saints( sidh). The temple is painted in deep orange colour, the favourite colour of Lord Shri Hanuman. The surrounding scenerio and hill forests at the backdrop of temple makes it more attractive for the visitors and tourists.
As we reached the temple ground we were informed that the temple is 160 steps above the ground. So basically we had to climb 160 stairs to reach the main temple. And trust me that experience was magnificent. 160 steps are very easy to climb when you have the best company and that excitement within you. So as we reached at the top. . . . . yes we took that 5 second break to look at that breathtaking view. That whole view was surrounded by river Khoh and it looked like we are sneaking through heaven to look at that particular part of earth.
That view had peace in the air. That view had a sparkle of spirituality. And of course that view do gave us all goosebumps. In one word it was panoramic.
So we entered the temple, took blessings of Shri Sidhbali. We also had our lunch there. We were in the temple for about two hours. And that two hours were seriously one of the most peaceful two hours we all experienced. The air, the atmosphere, the mountains around, the birds chirping, the sound of bhajan, everything, literally everything was so calm and quite.
We came down. Then we had “shikanji” a typical Indian drink of lemon and sugar added in water. We also had some local famous food stuff. So while moving back when we looked back at that temple from a certain distance we still had that peace, peace in our soul and in our mind. So this travel story was one of my favourite because of two reasons. Firstly because it included a sense of faith and our spiritual devotion and secondly it included mountains 😍.
Will share some more of my travel stories with you all.Keep reading. Keep supporting. See you🙂.
And most importantly stay safe and take precautions. We will get through it together very soon.
