Family Matters

Today, I was just having a chat with my younger brother. He suddenly took up my DSLR and told me “I wanna capture a few shots of you playing the guitar.” I agreed. And so we started off.
I played a few songs that came to my mind at that instant, such as Fade to Black, Come as You Are, Lithium.
It was great fun with both of us singing, coupled with the fact the I was constantly under flashlight (no pun intended).


It made me remind of our good ol’ times together. I mean, what is there in life that could possibly mean more to you than your family, and the time spent with them? Having chats, singing together, getting photos clicked, poking each other – ah, nothing else could possibly matter more.

The Value of Happiness

What do you want from your life?

  • A big home?
  • A high-paying job?
  • A big car?
  • Lots of money to spare?

A lot of us, in fact most of us, want these things. Have you ever pondered why?

John Lennon once said-

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Is that true? Yes, it is. Mr. Lennon understood that, and had only one aim in his life – to create music, and make people happy. I mean, who hasn’t heard of The Beatles?

The goal of all endeavors in your life is one – Happiness. All the things that you genuinely want (or have ever wanted) ultimately lead you to only one answer “I want to be happy” if you ask a simple “Why?” to every question posed to yourself.

So aim high, and aim sincerely. Channel all your energies towards achieving it. Take my word, you will be happy.
