A Friend’s love Story and it’s Side effects: The Story Of My Best Friend Aman!

​”Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. “

― Bob Marley [Find this and more such quotes here.]

For one of my school friends, the quote has never been truer. Aman Kumar Singh. No other friend (or probably no one knows him better than I do. As I thought so at least.) I remember the day. A December morning it was, he called myself and another friend, Akash, and ordered each of us to meet him at Jubilee park (A famous park, holiday spot in our city of Jamshedpur) at 9 am. Akash and I reached the spot on time. Neither of us have been too interested in the happenings of the world. Akash and I’ve almost lost all materialistic desires except we both have monetary interests, that too, just enough to keep us happy, and a lot more stuff, but we don’t have desires. Okay, sorry. Aman is a dear friend to both of us, and while we never are too excited to meet people in parks, we couldn’t say NO to our friend. He arrived 20 minutes late, as always, but not alone. He arrived with a girl. A girl who he introduced to us as Aanchal. 

While, the reader would probably except me to describe in depth – that day, Aanchal, Aman, and their relationship. I don’t care about that part, you shouldn’t too. But, I’d tell you things which are most interesting. The best of which is that Aman is going to get married, that too, soon, with a GIRL, the SAME girl, Aanchal. Being a best friend to someone is not that easy, you got to listen to secrets, keep secrets, and not share your own secrets. Aman played it really well. I couldn’t have guessed it. He had told us his wishes about living a bachelor’s life in New York. Never having a family, being cool, and then one day, he introduced his girlfriend to us. Akash and I were shocked. So shocked that Akash almost died of laughing right away.

That wasn’t all, Aman – a Bill Gates wannabe, who dreamt of building a brand greater than Apple, who dreamt of having holidays in the sexiest places of the world now just wishes to have a family with one person. He wishes to just take care of his parents as they age. Damn he even wishes to raise kids with his “soulmate”. All of you who know Aman, I understand it’s surprising to you, but don’t be surprised to get an invitation to a friend’s marriage pretty soon. Yes, it’s true. The talks are done. They both have jobs, apparently matured enough. Their parents are ready. Yes, Aman did have the guts to tell his and then Aanchal’s dad about their relationship, and he’s still alive.

However, the story has a little sad side as well. Aman regrets all his flirting. So, being his best friend. I offer my deepest regrets and apologies to all you beautiful girls he’s met on Social Media. All of you he said, ‘baby, I love you,’ to. He’s not going to show up in your messages anymore. To that girl, he promised to travel to Paris with – I am sorry, ma’am, but my friend lies well – he’s got someone else, he’ll travel to Uttrakhand with every year for the rest of his life. Your heart must be broken I know. My deepest condolences. Aman has been the same since childhood. His first crush was on a primary teacher. Seriously.

However, don’t think I am just having fun at Aman’s cost. I really appreciate the changes I’ve seen. I hope my friend can beat his p*rn and alcohol addiction now. I hope he learns a bit of grammar. I deeply hope he would remember all of his friends after marriage. We care for him. I will keep his summer trip to Dehradun with Aanchal a secret. Don’t worry, my friend. I wish him great luck in life. If you’re Aman reading this: Stop staring at girls like you’ll eat them. And, never again utter “Gorgeous” when you pass a “beautiful” girl. You may get a good mob beating someday. Lastly, I’d never tell that friend about your crush on his girlfriend. Aanchal wouldn’t even know what jokes you tell on her, behind her backs. What was that girl’s name? Aneesha? Shreya? Anyways, Akash is proud of you.

And, hello reader, if you’ve come thus far, and you have read everything about my friend till now, there’s this thing you need to know, you’ve been fooled. Of course, I was lying, and my special apologies to all the Aanchals alive. I had to take a name. Wishing you fool a good day. Do comment if you’ve something to say. Make Aman great again, but he’s already a great man, who isn’t a p*rn or alcohol addict. Take care. Write to you again.

Things A Single Should Do Over Social Media

Social Media can be “not so great” if you’ve not got another person you can share your problems with. It can be a best friend too, but then friendships aren’t as exciting these days. While, I am a single myself I can relate to every person who wants to fast forward through February. Don’t worry people, I stand with you and am proud of you for getting past this extremely torturous month. The very little I can do, I will do. Give you ideas about being a lot cooler. One is to not drag introductions. So, here we go.

1. Troll couples on Social Media. 

This is an extremely cool way to pass time. If you’re unhappy, make everyone else feel the pain. There are lots of ridiculous, atrocious, head paining, horribly offensive stuff on the web. You just need to choose ‘em one by one and share them through your various Social Media accounts. Something like, “There’s life, there’s death, and then there’s getting into a relationship with someone who hates sex” is a good start. You can only make your posts worse from here.

It’d be a huge hit, especially on Twitter! Nobody would realize your pain. So what are you waiting for? Ah, 5 more points … I see.

2. Brag about being single!

If you see the glass “half full” even when it’s empty. I am apologetic for my previous point. You don’t need to change yourself, but what you can do is as effortless, and as annoying – to everyone else. It’s all about you. Why care about people!? So, start bragging about how cool being single is. Tell everyone you don’t need anyone in life. None to complete you because you’re a solved Algebraic expression. As clear as it gets. Start with: “India’s Prime minister is ‘single’. India’s greatest President was single. Salman Khan is virgin. Patrakar PopatLal is too and I am the coolest thing since the ‘Ice age’. Priceless.

3. Advice: Nothing beats a Single giving Relationship advices!

Find happiness sadistically. Don’t mind hearts being shattered or relationships being broken to make yourself laugh. Lots of people come to me for relationship advises, and I on almost all instances spend hours trying to get people to “walk out” of their relationship. If you’re to tell me how your boyfriend and girlfriend didn’t pick up a call of yours, I’d give up my life trying to prove how big an unpardonable CRIME that is, and why you should dump that ignorant, mean idiot! 

Example: 

Friend: Buddy, I think he might be cheating on me.

Your advice should be: Ah, according to the University of Oxford if you think your partner is cheating on you, dump them. History suggests that 99. 9% times they are cheating. Having known your boyfriend he has nothing in him to suggest he’d be in the 0.1%. Spice it up!

4. Disgrace Tinder, TrulyMad and ALL dating sites!

Nothing makes you look cooler than everyone knowing you’re single and you don’t have a Tinder account! It’s okay if you’ve one, but that girl or boy you’re tweeting to doesn’t need to know that. Go a step further and start posting about how dating sites are ruining the essence of relationships. How you’ve lost trust in relationships because everyone is selfish. Probably add up a fake High school love story for extra flavours. Tell everyone how your partner cheated on you. How you’ve kept people who’ve loved you at one hand distance. Let them know that you don’t care about what people think and say. (Wo)Man, you’re in for being a total bad@ss!

5.) Flirt!

If everything else is hard, and you can’t stop yourself, and being single is as difficult as “being human” for you. Add that Tinder ain’t working as well. Flirt. Twitter is a great place to start. Everyone understands your pain. Start with posting about being “friendzoned” or “brozoned” or maybe tweet a simple “Ah, I am so lonely. I don’t want to live anymore.” Something like a “Truth or Dare” game where you just tell them how good you feel about them and how they are like sneezing – do clarify that they too stop your heartbeat and they are as awesome as the next Avengers movie. Say anything you like and think to be convenient. Of course, you don’t have to pay anything. Flatter the next person till they say, “Baby, I love you. You sound better than my gramophone“. Destiny could work wonders. Things like “I know I am not good enough for you” and “Bae, you make me cry” are even better. Good luck.

6. Meditate! Exercise! Gain!

Not everything needs to be about Social Media. If you’re not on any Social Media, which has minimal possibility. You can do better things than just killing your time on the web.Not that it’s lame, I do it 24×7. Still you can do boring stuff outside it. One of ‘em is getting healthier. Health is wealth as you know, and what better than giving your body – time. We’re living increasingly bad lifestyles and aging is due to be much worse than previous generations. So exercise! Not just your muscles, but also your brain, and if possible also your heart – Nothing philosophical, I am talking about doing cardio exercises you fool. 

Fact: Exercising makes you lot happier. I’d love to give you a link to find more about this, but I am already exhausted from my hours of Twitter Yoga. 

Here’s a WTF image to go with a WTF post! Captions needed?

Thanks for reading, waiting to hear from you, friend! Keep smiling!

Awwwwwwww…

​That awkward moment when you’re reading a sports article, scrolling down, and suddenly appears “10 movies where they really did IT!” With sponsorships and ads, one always expects these kind of stuff, but I always find it funny. Not that I’m tough to make laugh. Something as simple as “Awwwwwwww” makes me smile. This “Awwwwwwww” thing is fantastic though. So, fantastic that I’ve a joke. It’s getting old too soon, but I’ll crack it here. Hold your breath, here’s the joke:

Q.)What did the mad dog say to the man on street?

A.) Bhawwww bhawwww! 

Ain’t it an “awwwwww” inspiring joke? Letting the joke go, and being serious, I’d like to confess something. Something that I was reminded of just moments ago. Something I didn’t even have in my mind, when I started writing this post. Yes, this blog is so random. 

The confession: I met her for the last time today, or at least the second last time. The words will go unsaid. All those advises about expressing yourself, never living a life with “What IF’s,” go in vain. I have never been good with saying what I feel, and it’s unfortunate but that’s the way I am. This was probably the closest I got to what people call love, what’s even sad is that it was probably the only time I thought I would tell someone what I feel. But, life goes on, as they say. People will come and go, although I fear she’d never be replaced. The funny part is that I part with her, as unknown to her, as I was, when we met the first time even after being “friends” for so long.

This is getting a bit tough to write, so I wouldn’t describe anything, or even talk about it anymore. I wanted to confess it on the blog. To sum up, now she’s gone, gone forever. Unaware of “everything”. As this fool moves on with life.

I feel terribly sad know, even if this confession is a work of fiction. Somebody give me a tissue paper please. Have a good day friends. Waiting for your “Awwwww’s”. Thanks for reading! After this, if this is the last time you read my blog, I don’t blame you. The world is full of lies and sadistic humour. Love you all. Really. 
Awwwwwwww… 

Describe this pic below.

​#AWARENESS-WEEK: Smile more!

The Article has originally published by me (Me? Twitter: @RahulSingh_I) for the awareness week on Google Plus. You can check out more about it by visiting the page “People For People“. I and some more young people over on Google+ started the idea to create awareness on topics such as depression or Cyber bullying. At times, providing you with Life Hacks or just something to make you smile. Do check out the page, if you’re on Google Plus.
While, this has only been a humble start, it’s been a great experience for some of us working as a team. Hopefully, we can do good things. You can too. Comment your views. But, read this first. And, SMILE
There’s nothing better than seeing someone smile – a person you care for, even better if you’re the reason behind it. All of us can’t be Charlie Chaplin. Having a great sense of humor is not everybody’s cup of tea, neither all of us can be the “hero” who brings a smile to everyone’s face. But, we can all try. Presenting to you 25 very simple ways to bring a smile to a person’s face.


1.) The easiest. Crack a bad joke. Extraordinarily bad. I’d give you an example:

Q.) What did the Shirt say to the trouser?


A.) Awwwwwwww


Okay, not this bad. Moving on…


2.) Gifts. An unexpected gift is a sure shot idea to make someone happy. Gift your best friend tissue papers. Bring pizza home, gift me a million dollars. Gifts always work.


3.) Give compliments to your loved ones. Something as simple as “you’re a dear friend/sibling,” anything complementary.


4.) Smile, say hello to strangers. A random smile at a stranger can make someone’s day. People need good vibes, be the one to provide ‘em.


5.) Say “Thank you” for the little things done right. We always complain when loved ones mess something up, but never thank them for the millions of times they do it right. Be grateful. Say, “Thank you!”


6.) You’ve tons of virtual friends, if you think someone needs a smile. Give them a reason. There are lots of great GIFs, cat pics, memes and everything on the Internet. Forward something with a personal touch.


7.) One for the kids. Gift them chocolates, play games with ‘em. Tell ‘em stories, however horrible the stories are. Give a kid some time, it would just not make him happy, but give you peace and happiness as well.


8.) To add to 7, discover the kid within you. Give yourself attention and enjoy your moments. You don’t know how many people will smile just because you’re smiling.


9.) Play pranks, a successfully played prank will make everyone happy, a failed one will get people mad with laughter. Something as simple as telling people, there’s a bomb in the house will work, although you may risk being kicked out.


10.) You should never look back, buy if you do, pick a tale from the past and see the magic. Start as: “You know dad, your favorite watch you lost in 2004. You yelled at me the day before. So, I flushed it to avenge. Ain’t it funny?” Okay, next…


11.) Do a random act of kindness. There’s no greater good in the world as doing something for someone, selflessly. Be kind, the world needs it. Let someone feel good.


12.) Ask your friends over for a game on Weekend. Whatever sport you play, everyone needs a break, see to it that your pals get one.


13.) Crack jokes on your wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, or best friends, these jokes always end up in laughter. [PS: See to it that the targeted person doesn’t see it. Stay safe.] 


14.) Forgive people for their mistakes. If someone regrets it, don’t make ‘em feel down. Forgive and smile at the lesson both of you’ve learned. 


15.) Tell your significant other that you love ‘em. 


16.) More to gifts. Give an anonymous gift to someone. Something, a loved one always wanted. Keep it anonymous. Let the person live in imagination.


17.) Laugh out loud at something funny when things go quiet in a family gathering, etc. Chances are people will catch up soon.


18.) Be nice to waiters/ waitresses. Give ‘em kind words or tips. Thank them. 


19.) Write something for the people you love. A little note or anything. Draw a picture for them. Send ‘em pictures from the past. Talk/chat to people around you. Show them their worth. Make the day better for them in every little way you can.


20.) Help elder people. Whether you know them or not. Help strangers with carrying bags or holding the door. “Be remembered for good.”


21.) Lend something to a friend/sibling, they know you only share with people you trust. 


22.) “Good mornings”, “Good nights” are underrated. Everyone appreciates having people care for ‘em. Sometimes, it’s cool letting them know you’re there. 


23.) Laugh at yourself, others will follow suite. I forgot to mention, I’ve some grey hair showing up. Save me God! Don’t laugh you fool.


24.) Play along with good stories. Some tales about you are worth being incorrect. If only, they make people laugh, and don’t harm anyone involved. Go another step ahead, and tell a good lie about yourself. By the way, I found 2 gold biscuits under my bed.


25.) Tell a good joke. Example:

Q.) What’s big, round and is pretty HOT? 


A.) Sun. Okay.


Bonus. 26.) Always remember to wear a smile! 😄

100 Things I need to tell YOU – the 4th 25 about “love”

image

Life, love and more in the 4th part of this list article series. I would like to thank Google for existing and helping me shoot at war without having any first hand experience with guns. You’d understand this reference later. Now, please READ.

[You can get the third list about a “life without limits and suicides here.]

0. All the posts combined has 104 points in total. Yet, I have named it 100 things I need to tell YOU for some reason.

0.1 The theme of this “set” is love, hate and mistakes. Now we have a total of 105 points. (Don’t expect me to talk a lot about hate though.)

1. Love yourself.

2. Want your first love to not go wrong? Fall in love with yourself.

3. Love your education, career and money because they won’t get up on you one morning and decide to leave you. [This stuck on my mind from a tweet I read few days before. I apologize for not being able to give proper credit.]

4. In a survey, 88% of women said “money” to be a “very important” part of relationships, and it’s the number one cause of disputes as well. [Article: 10 fascinating facts about modern relationships.]

5. It’s okay to fall in love with your phone. Actually, it’s not okay, but I understand your trouble.

6. It’s normal to fall in love, but you should be strong enough to stand up and walk out of it.

You weren’t expecting that, were you? But, I LOVE humour. You should LOVE a good laugh as well. Makes life much easier. It reminds me that…

7. Love your life. It will stay with you till death.

8. Love and appreciate friendships.

Here’s a short incident from my own life, when I was hanging out with my 2 best friends recently.

F1 to F2: Dude, why are you so sad?
F2: ’cause she is out of town for a couple of days.

F1 (laughs): You won’t be this sad, even when I die.
F2: Honestly, yeah.

Me to F1: I think you shouldn’t have asked that, feels bad.

Myself and F1 had a good laugh about it, and F2 tried to justify his thoughts; sadly we knew he wasn’t kidding as well. It’s okay.

Thoughts: Everyone of you have a priority list, but if you’ve good friends. Appreciate them.

9. It’s easier to hate, but it kills you subtly.

10. You’ll make mistakes in life. You can fall in love with the wrong person, you may waste precious amount of time in life trying to hate somebody. The best thing is to learn and move on.

11. Never hate people who help you better yourself.

12. I read a heck lot of “love” posts on the web for this topic, like this one on Thought Catalog.

What I learnt: “love” related posts gets a good number of page views, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. It was fun reading many of ’em but at times people get a bit too “cheesy”.

13. Love bites can kill you. Here’s a recent story.

Hickey Kills Teenage Boy: Blood Clot, Stroke Caused By ‘Love Bite’ From Girlfriend

14. This is how a “cute” kid answered the question of “What is love?”

I guess my best way of explaining what I think love is would be like the solar system. There are a bunch of planets that can represent people. And then of course gravity holds them together. And gravity is sort of like love. No matter how far apart people are, love can hold them together

An excerpt from this article at The Guardian.

15. We are not the only faithful species, but Wolves, swans and many more in the animal kingdom find a mate for life.

16. Heart break is not just a metaphor.

17. Forgive loved ones for the mistakes, they’re humans too.

18. Love and appreciate diversity. Not all roses are red, but all are beautiful.

19. Loving, and being loved back are two different things completely independent of each other.

20. Smile is the most attractive feature. Bring the best smiles out of people, and never forget to smile yourself even during hard times. Your smile could be someone’s only happiness.

21. “I had a boyfriend for a week.” Not me.

An international friend recently let me know about her one week’s “virtual” relationship. This was a fun conversation lasting an hour with many a laughing “emoji”. It’s an example of love not lasting “forever” and ending without any heartbreaks.

I don’t know why I would mention this thing, but both of us found it funny. It doesn’t actually qualify as “true love” in any sense. It doesn’t qualify as love either. Naughty young people.

22. The answer to hate is not hate, it’s not love either. It’s apologizing for the inconvenience and moving on.

23. I am 22, and have always been single, and I hope that doesn’t make this whole post invalid.

I do LOVE my life, my family, friends and this universe. So, I do have a point with all this, from what I understand.

24. There’s always a voice you like to hear, a face you like to see, and some people you genuinely respect and like for who they are, and keep doing so even when they are gone from your lives, and even with the memories getting blurred with time.

25. Then you’ll also have people who’ll not enter to leave, but to stick by you through all this “drama” of life. If you’ve found yours, good luck. If you’ve haven’t – I don’t care. I haven’t either.

Thank you for reading, and this is the most fun I’ve had writing a list. I hope you have fun reading this too. If not, I would LOVE you for forgiving me.

100 Things I Need to Tell YOU – The Third 25

Life advises, inspiration and more stuff is to be served. Enjoy yourselves. I have already told you 50 things of the 100, and here are 25 more, not counting the zero.

0. Live a life without limits.

1. You’re not supposed to be right all the time.

2. All things having life will always have imperfections, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying to attain perfection.

3. If your only goal is money, you may end up unhappy most probably.

4. Don’t preach stuff you don’t know about. There’s a reason I don’t talk about making money online, even though I’ve a great desire to do so.

5. Not everyone needs to agree with you.

6. Never spend time criticizing a person, unless you are getting paid, or the person requests for it.

7. To the readers: Never judge a book by its cover. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, am repeating again.

To the content makers: A great book cover is a must.

8. Stop complaining about all the people un-following you on Social Media. By posting such stuff, you’re giving more people reasons to bid you farewell.

On a related note, I checked out all the un-follows I got on Twitter today, and it hurts, but it’s okay.

9. If you have too many people blocking you, you ain’t using Social Media in the most productive way.

10. Having a dictionary app on the phone helps.

11. It’s “Bay of Bengal” on the world map above the Indian ocean, and not the “BAE of Bengal”.

12. Be generous.

For the next 100 days, make it a point to give praise and approval to those who deserve it.

[Credit: Lifehack’s article 60 Small Ways to Improve Your Life in the Next 100 Days]

13. On the day of this post being written, a friend of mine who’s into his final year of B.Tech, met with an accident. His bike skit, and he’s got multiple injuries to boast off, and a “thrilling” moment to remember as well. In his own words, he was inches away from being run over by a bus, he saw death.

It’s an unpredictable life.

14. Life is precious, and is worth the struggle. Always.

15. “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” [Source: Internet]

16. Life can anytime get better. Have faith. Here’s an example of a person who shares the 7 things she learned after her failed suicide attempt.

I am grateful I survived. I am grateful for my second chance at life. I am content with knowing that if I die tomorrow I will do so being at peace with what I have done and accomplished. I am even more fulfilled knowing that I do not want to die tomorrow.

17. “Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?” – Albert Camus

18. Laugh at yourself, accept your flaws.

19. Crack silly jokes. Which reminds me of a question I needed to ask.

Q. What did the moon tell the Sun?

A. Baby, you’re so hot. I wish you liked night outings.

20. Ask for help. Find people who are willing to help.

21. Make it a habit to ignore negative posts/talks on Social Media. Yes, ignorance is bliss. Many people use Social Media to rant, and vomit all the trash. If there’s lesson and wisdom coming along, okay. Otherwise, push the mute button.

22. Read and hear motivational stuff, be around positive people. Fill your stock of “reasons to live”. In the darkest night, you shouldn’t struggle to find your “hope”.

23. Stay optimistic, have self respect, confidence, and wit. However, always stay humble.

24. There’s no dead person who changed the world.

25. I can go on saying, and I am not “depression proof” as well. I am not a survivor either, and no expert for sure.

Life has been kind to me, and give it a chance always, there’s every reason, it will be kind to you.

Thanks for reading. Another part to come, will see you soon with it. Till then, let me know what you feel about this set of 25.

100 Things I need to tell YOU – the second 25.

Good Little Indian has more things to say, and so they have another list. Clicking on this link takes you to the first list of 25 of the “Things I need to tell you.” Happy reading, and wishing this makes a difference to you in a good way.

0. Within you is a universe, as great as the one you live in.

1. “Globally, about one-third of food is wasted: 1.6bn tonnes of produce a year, with a value of about $1tn.” [Report: The Guardian]

2. Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day. [Report: dosomething.org]

3. A guy in his 30’s jumped off a bridge. Later a note was discovered from his apartment, where he lived alone. It said:

I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I’ll not jump.

[Report: The NewYorker]

4. Never judge or be rude to people you don’t know. You don’t know about their struggles. ~ Anonymous

5. Be a good friend, before wanting that good friend. All your friends doesn’t need to know about your problems, they have enough of their own. Sometimes, help first.

We need to share our problems with friends, and all of us do. Make sure they are doing alright before you let them know about your recent breakup. Unless of course, your friend can find that funny. Such friends do exist, all my friends know one such person.

6. “I like to think nobody cares about me, I really do. I hate that I can’t forget all those childhood memories of my mom feeding me half asleep. I hate my dad for paying for all my needs, for taking me to all those fairs. I hate my Grandpa, granny, uncles, brothers, sisters for not ignoring my existence. I hate my best friends for being so genuinely awesome, and caring, and all of my Internet buddies too. I hate everyone.”

Bizarre? Okay, I hate none of them. If you know people care about you. Great. If you think no one cares about you. My best wishes to you to find the people who do.

9. “I need to start loving myself,” a friend mentioned on Twitter today. You, yes YOU reader – love yourself.

Even after all my failures, all my flaws, every bit of negativity I have. All things I claim to not have. All fears that exist within. I would never want to be anyone else. I know, there’s just ONE me. You know that too.

10. Be the friend to people, you have always dreamt to have.

11. Respect people.

12. I will keep writing until the last person on earth tells me not to. Unfortunately, I am that last person in my list. Sorry, just can’t help.

13. When you say that you hate everyone. Keep in mind that this writer is a part of “everyone” as well, and has done absolutely nothing to deserve your hate.

The next time you say, “I hate everyone,” you better message and apologize to me. You can find me on Twitter (@RahulSingh_I) by following this link, and on G+ by following this link.

14. Appreciate the little things in life.

15. This quote I came across reading Shiv Khera’s book, You Can Win:

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the striving and tolerant of the weak and wrong. Because some time in our lives we would have been all of these ourselves.

16. This..

Last year, I was visiting Delhi and one fine day I forgot my cell phone in an auto. By the time I realized that my phone wasn’t with me, I was hyperventilating and dialing my number again and again in the hope that somebody would pick up.

Apparently, after a while, when the auto driver stopped at a red light, somebody told him that there was a phone ringing in his auto. He then picked up my call and came all the way back to where he dropped me to return the phone. It was one of the kindest things anyone had done for me.
