Perspective

Sharing is important in life. Why? (a question that immediately arises in our minds). The answer lies in our Geography lesson. Many of us (almost everyone) must have heard about the Dead Sea. It’s so high in salt content that the human body can float easily. You can almost lie down and read a book! The salt in the Dead Sea is as high as 35% - almost 10 times the normal ocean water. And all that saltiness has meant that there is no life at all in the Dead Sea. No fish. No vegetation. No sea animals. Nothing lives in there.

Unlike Dead Sea we don’t seem to recall learning about the Sea of Galilee. The Sea of Galilee is just north of the Dead Sea. Both the seas receive their water from river Jordan. And yet, they are very, very different. The Sea of Galilee is pretty, resplendent with rich, colorful marine life. There are lots of plants and lots of fish too. In fact, the Sea of Galilee is home to over twenty different types of fishes.

Same region, same source of water, and yet while one sea is full of life, the other is dead.. How?

Here apparently is why. The River Jordan flows into the Sea of Galilee and then flows out that keeps the Sea healthy and vibrant, teeming with marine life.

But the Dead Sea is so far below the mean sea level, that it has no outlet. It is estimated that over a million tons of water evaporate from the Dead Sea every day.

The Dead Sea takes water from the River Jordan, and holds it. It does not give. Result? No life at all.

NOW, Think about it.......

Life is not just about getting. It’s about giving. We all need to be a bit like the Sea of Galilee.

We are fortunate to get wealth, knowledge, love and respect. But if we don't learn to give, we could all end up like the Dead Sea. The love and the respect, the wealth and the knowledge could all evaporate. Like the water in the Dead Sea.

If we get the Dead Sea mentality of merely taking in more water, more money, more everything the results can be disastrous.
Good idea is to make sure that in the sea of your own life, you have outlets. Make sure you don't just get, you give too. Open the taps. And you'll open the floodgates to happiness.

Make that a habit: to share - to give - and experience life. Experience the magic!

“WORK LIFE BALANCE IN TODAY’S ERA "

Work life balance is the biggest concern of an individual in today’s era. Blooming economy, advancement of Information Technology has resulted in opportunities like better jobs, good pay package and growth prospects, on the other hand long work schedules, spending more time in office, dealing with clients, increasing competition and the pressures of job results with very little time to balance their work and life. This can have serious implications on the life of an individual which can affect person’s health both physiologically and psychologically.

A person should focus towards time management in order to reduce the imbalance between the work and life. Should also prioritize the task, should take out time for leisure activities, spending time with family to beat the stress. Share the responsibilities, should not commit anything which is not possible at all.

It is high time for a person to maintain a healthy balance between work and their private lives. This will not only help them achieve their personal and professional goals but also the organization they are working for.

Counter Point
(Book Review)

Title         :

The Immortals of Meluha

Author    : Amish Tripathi
Category: Mythological - Fiction

It’s the first part of Shiva trilogy by Amish Tripathi. This book tells the story of 1900 B.C. based empire Meluha and uses the characters, places and names associated with Lord Shiva. The book is based on the belief that perhaps the actions, the deeds and karma are the only deciding factors in transforming an ordinary man to Mahadev - God of Gods. The author’s writing is honest and powerful. Through this book he himself has tried to understand 'righteousness' without being prejudiced by any religious or philosophical outlook, which is an admirable feat.

The book is not about Hinduism but about humanism. It is not about what is 'right' or 'good' but what should be right AND good...in any time and in any world.

It clearly describes places and situations which helps the readers in understanding the story and moving along with it. It’s a brilliant mix of mythology, history and fiction.
