Hind hai, hind hi rahenge!

Having lived outside the country for over 14 months, I have realized that our language is sweeter than most. When you hear two people converse in Hindi, it seldom sounds like a catfight or like scratching surfaces. While I wouldn’t like to degrade other languages, neither is that an intention, and there would be an obvious bias, it does sound pleasant and non-offensive.

I sincerely believe a mind should explore in order to expand. Travels and adventures teach you a multitude of things whose presence/knowledge might have been previously ignored. I never thought I’d smell an envelope, which traveled all the way from home like they show in the movies and actually relish that smell!

the process of being an observer surely expands one's horizon.

the small gestures, brief meetings, little things, new born babies, a blossoming flower, a short poem do sometimes brings you far more happiness than your big big achievements.

sorry, if i forgot to mention, it was a nice article. :)
