Learning Your Own Way

I am a person with a puny general knowledge, being a Gemini, I feel that I do not have any hold on my interests and my loyalties keep shifting. I might start with a series / season but can end up anytime due to lack of interest.  Although I would want to retain back to the place where I left and start a fresh but somehow would stay away for a while and when everything else seems too boring and I am left with no other than the only choice, then I might strike back that too “MMMight”. I am not sure, whether all other Gemini’s feel the same but this is certainly a common trait between me and my Gemini friends.

My biggest concern is to stay acquainted with the most common things and the ongoing activities as I am too conscious of my dismal general awareness and so I bank on internet surfing. The best thing about surfing is, you can switch to any topic and area of interest the moment you feel bored with the present one. Even social networking sites are a big boon for people like us, as sharing of information and discussions over current trend keeps us posted. This technological advanced world has so much for us and a smart person is considered to have a cosmic profound knowledge.

During my graduation days I was quite inspired by my teachers. Coming from an English background, they were sensitive to all the sophisticated talents and people. I always wanted to be like them but, my inability to stay over a topic for an elongated period has always been a hitch.  I too wanted to have a deep knowledge about music, dance, and painting. Even the series I watch always enclose that the upper eastsiders exhibit their interest in such talents. Presently, I am struggling to cope up with this erudite world and am bewildered do I have fellow companions who face the same?

Focused Values

Being from a Jat clan realized the immense pressure of maintaining the values.  Since the beginning of my comprehending age, the only thing I was sure and proud of was ‘my culture’. It is like breathing among the people of same clique who posses’ almost identical outlook and anticipate their future generations to act and live same. Leading a life is quite simple as your know-how is centered on rules and regulations that you happily follow. Your judgment zone is mesmerized and you enjoy your living.

However, at a particular age (adolescence) comes the sense of revolt that emerges and continues for a prolonged period. The major change comes due to easy differentiation among cultures. Mainly when a child moves out and witnesses the children of other clans he experience change and could identify it easily.  Here, the child prefers and develops new habits, as grass looks greener on the other side and that’s where the clash of mind and identity begins.

Sometimes it happens at a little later stage that is around 20’s when a child leaves home and shifts to another place for higher studies. But, some things are grounded through roots and you cannot change them. You will love the new culture initially but even then deep in your mind you will remain conscious of your own conventions with whom you strongly agree. You may not want to reveal your inner thoughts but you would prefer your own principles amongst all. Lately, when you come back to your place, among your own people, you sooner realize that it was just a surreal life and getting back to real is the need of an hour. Soon you indulge in your own world which is again highly influenced by your clan’s principles, where your heart actually is. Therefore you become pretty sure that you would certainly slot in the same values in your future generations.

What Goes Around Comes Around !!

We all have often heard of the speech mark “What goes around comes around” be it in Justin Tiberlake’s song or in any other singer's lyrics. The life is centered with karma. These calculative words hold a profound meaning that could be actually understood in Swami Vivek Anand’s words:  “We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions, so we have to know how to act”.
