Want to Secure Your Job?

It was time for a quarterly business review in our office. One by one, the members of our team were going to meet the manager in his cabin to discuss their performance during the last quarter. His cabin is right in front of my seat and I could clearly see through the glass and get a hint of how the review of others was going. Rahul, my friend from the team, was the next one to go inside the cabin for his review. We all knew that Rahul’s performance during the last quarter wasn’t good at all. All of us could, therefore, anticipate the scenario in the boss’s cabin. After his review got over, the door of the cabin opened. Just when Rahul was about to come out, the Manager made his final remark in a frightening voice-“Rahul, if you can’t do your job well then start looking for another. I will hire someone else.” Though the words were uttered for Rahul, but they had almost an equal impact on all of us sitting outside the cabin. Rahul started to think as to what would happen if he had to leave. How would he be able to carry out the responsibilities of his family? After thinking about it for a long time, he realised the value and importance of his job. Just three days later, I came across a story which somehow reminded me of my colleague Rahul. It was a story of a gardener and the owner of the house. Once, a young boy went to a nearby telephone booth and made a call to apply for a job. While the boy was making a call, the booth owner was quietly…

Tattoo Making: Building your identity or Ruining It?

Hello Friends, welcome to this ever-trending talk show-‘Make way to stay’. Here is your host Elina Oberoi bringing today an exclusive subject or in fact, one of the trending topics of the contemporary times- ‘Tattoo Making’. Now when we say tattoos, the first thing that comes to our mind is youth. With youngsters going crazy over this fad, it seems tattoos are an inevitable part of their lives, something they can’t afford to miss. Maybe it represents their state of emotions or is just a major life ingredient that defines or completes their personality. But, as we are familiar with the fact that everything has its pros and cons, let’s bring our thoughts to a healthy discussion and kick-start today’s special show on ‘To what extent tattooing is favourable for youth?’  First, let me introduce to you our three panelists present in the studio-Mr. David Treasurywala, a Medical Practitioner; Ms. Stella Fernandes, a Social Analyst and Mr. Robin Khanna, a Tattoo Expert. We extend a very warm welcome to all our guests. Our Reporter Shrey Deol is already present at the CBC University Campus and is among the happening crowd of youth to take their views on the subject. Host- Shrey, let’s start with you. You are amid a bustling atmosphere at the university and I guess, the youth around you must have got a fair idea of what your agenda is going to be. Well, let’s connect with them and begin with the conversation. R…

Assess the Basis of Your Relationship

 There can be three basis supporting man-woman relationships: Physical and Emotional Basis Intellectual Basis Spiritual Basis Physical and Emotional Basis Physical Basis can be entirely based on just the physical intimacy between a man and woman, wherein the only support which keeps the relationship ignited is sensual gratification. This kind of relationship is bound to fall apart as soon as over-familiarity with the other person is attained, so to say when the other body stops tingling the senses; giving way to boredom. This is where the majority of youngsters stand today- people go out to the pubs/ discos just to find partners for one night stand, where the tickle of a new person brings back spark and excitement in life. This is a very volatile state- every new touch is like a print on the fabric of the body-memory. It’s like you get a  tattoo done, it looks great; then you get another tattoo on top of it, then another one and then another, until the skin starts to wear out. In the same manner, imprint after imprint on the fabric of the body-memory disillusions the body. Just like over-tattooing is abusing the skin; likewise, proximity with multiple partners is abusing the senses. ...Look at the society today- people are not even leaving 2 to 3 years old kids, they are molesting them! Is this because they have a need to get intimate? No. It is because of their compulsive nature. It is a bad circuit in the brain which has been used over and …

नई सोच की हरियाली!

अब रचनात्मकता का ज़माना है। हर क्षेत्र में नई सोच नए झण्डे फहरा रही है। नवीन विचारों में ही सृजनात्मकता है। लेकिन यह हमारे हाथ में है कि अपनी नई सोच  को हम कहाँ और किस क्षेत्र में लगाते हैं! पहनावे और खान-पान में लगाते हैं, तो यही नई सोच ' फैशन' बन कर छा जाती है। वैज्ञानिक या तकनीकी क्षेत्र में यह आविष्कार के रूप में उभर कर आती है। कॉर्पोरेट जगत में यह नये प्रोडक्ट्स और नए मुकामों की सीढ़ी बन जाती है। पर इस दुनिया में कुछ लोग ऐसे भी हैं, जिन्होंने अपने रचनात्मकता के परों से स्वार्थ के परे उड़ान भर कर दिखाई है। उनकी यह उड़ान आधुनिकता की चमक-दमक से दूर प्रकृति के आँचल की ओर है। अपन…

साधकों, धैर्य बनाए रखना!

सोचो, कैसा होता अगर हम आज स्कूल में दाखिला लेते और कल ही डॉक्टर या इंजीनियर बन जाते! आज बीज बोते और कल ही खेतों में बड़ी-बड़ी फसल लहलहाने लगती। घर से निकलते और निकलते ही ऑफिस पहुँच जाते... रास्ते में कोई लाल बत्ती न होती! सचमुच, तब ज़िन्दगी कितनी सुपरफास्ट होती! पर हकीकत में ऐसा नहीं होता! धैर्य, सब्र इंतज़ार- ये ज़िन्दगी के अटूट हिस्से हैं। आप चाहें तो भी इन शब्दों को अपने जीवन के शब्दकोश से हटा या मिटा नहीं सकते। मज़िल की ओर बढ़ेंगे, तो रास्ते में लाल बत्तियाँ तो आएँगी ही और हमें उन पर रुकना भी पड़ेगा। ठहरेंगे नहीं, हरी बत्ती होने तक का सब्र नहीं रखेंगे, तो फिर दुर्घटना के अंजाम को भी भुग…
