Success And Happiness.

*A lot of people talk about dealing with failure, but for me, dealing with success was probably the hardest time in my life*

~Shooter Abhinav Bindra~

Abhinav Bindra is the only Indian to win an individual gold in the Olympics.

He had a long career in sport, with many ups and Downs.His biggest mental crisis in life came when actually he succeeded.

Up until Beijing where he had greatest victory by winning 10m air rifle gold medal in 2008 .He had trained for 16 years of life with a singular goal and singular obsession that to win gold medal at the Olympics. But, just after that moment of celebration, he felt a “void”.He even got thoughts of quit shooting.

Nevertheless, one day his dream, the goal was fulfilled but it created lot of challenges in his life. He felt very depressed and lost. He didn’t know what to do with his life and what to do next.

But more than anything, when you are goalless, you are listless in life. The beauty of having goals in life is that it drives you and when that is lost you lose a lot of meaning in life…”

Sometimes we get lured by preconceived notion that :

Success gives you Happiness

That is false and wrong equation.

In reality, Happiness and peace in life is real success in life.

We should endeavor for those actions, goals and moments which provide maximum happiness, pleasure and satisfaction. But the point is what are those goals and actions which are means to happiness. The answer to this question lies in ones conscience and soul.

Happy Eid Ul Fitr Mubarak💖

Totally overwhelming and cherishing 🌺

This poem and artwork is for the dear friend Shahzad.. Thank you so much dear friend for your appreciation and support for me 🤗

There are blowing strong winds,

The quest to get to the destination is the real determination to walk on the rocky paths,

Life is just like rain. Sometimes it reduces the heat of the weather, sometimes it freezes but encourages to pass every test,

It feels great to stand in front of the beautiful house of the village on the soaked streets and soak in the rain,

And hope is always there that one day all the dreams in the eyes will light up like glow worm (jugnu) and all the darkness will disappear.

لَئِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ

Tayyaba Khalil

قرآن کی اس آیت میں اللہ تعالیٰ نے دنیا میں تنگی اور عسرت سے نکل کر فراوانی اور یُسر کی طرف جانے کا نسخہ ۳ لفظوں؛ (اگر تم شکر کرو گے تو میں تمہیں مزید دوں گا) میں سمو دیا ہے

قرآن میں شکر کے الفاظ والی آیات کثیر تعداد میں موجود ہیں۔ 69 آیتوں میں 75 دفعہ شکر کے الفاظ جن مطالب کے ساتھ آئے ہیں ان میں سے کچھ درج ذیل ہیں۔

تاکہ تم شکر کرو
اللہ کا شکر ادا کرو اور کفر نہ کرو
اور لوگوں میں سے اکثر لوگ شکر نہیں کرتے
جو کوئی شکر کرتا ہے تو وہ اپنے ہی فائدے کے لیے کرتا ہے اور اللہ تو غنی اور کریم ہے
اور اللہ بہت مشکور (قدر دان) ہے
کہ وہ آزمائے کہ انسان شکر کرتا ہے یا کفر

یہاں پر سوال کھڑا ہوتا ہے کہ شکر کیا ہے ؟ میرے ناقص علم کے مطابق…

Until when?

Today in my locality, a 3 year boy lost his grandfather during Cross firing between Indian Security Forces and Militants.

[The kid sitting on the dead body of slain grandfather😢😥😩..]

Tujhe kitnu ka lahu chahiye aye arz i watan,

Jo tere aariz berang ko gulnaar karein,

Kitni Aahoon Se Kaleeja Tera Thanda Hoga,

Kitne Aansoon Tere Sahraoon ko Gulzaar Karein… “

Boycotting Chinese Products…

In the aftermath of Ladakh Face-off, there has been growing clamour among various sections of Indian society for boycott of Chinese products. It is a demand to use Trade as a Blunt instrument of retaliation against China.

As a result, number of measures were taken like cancelling of order of using Chinese equipment to upgrade plans of state run BSNL .Another Chinese engineering company is loosing contract with Indian railways.

At this critical juncture, the demand for boycotting Chinese goods may make good for optics, but not for benefit of domestic economy.

The economic retaliation will have it’s own set of consequences which are summarised as follows:-

a) Trade Imbalance. As India accounts for a minuscule share of China’s export market, it will at best have limited impact on China. There is about trade deficit of USD 57billion between India and China.

b) Dependency :India is dependent on China for a wide array of goods, ranging from electronics to fertilizers.

c) Price Rise:-Any attempt to reduce imports from China, will lead to price rise for Indian consumers, due to low market price of Chinese goods compared with others.

d) Domestic manufacturing will be affected as India imports huge capital goods and intermediate products from China.

e) Issue of Chinese investment in the Indian start-ups.The Chinese firms like Alibaba and Tencet have invested in Indian Startups like paytm, Byju’s, Ola etc.This relationship will be difficult to disentangle.

Therefore government will have to carefully and meticulously think through the consequences of any policy action that it decides to pursue. Policy should flow from careful cost-benefit analysis, not driven by knee jerk reactions.

Ladakh face-off: flawed foreign policy or China’s adventurism.

The killing of atleast 20 Indian Army personnel, has brought two nuked Asian giants at the Brink of war. The face-off has vitiated and undermined the disengagement agreed upon few days ago between senior military officers on both sides and hardened the stand-off between two countries. Hence throws up new challenges in the path of de-escalation.

The massive toll, biggest since the 1967 border clash at Sikkim and the first combat casualties since 1975 strikes at the heart of every bilateral agreement and understanding to maintain peace and tranquility along the India-China border since 1993.

The clashes came after both sides had publicly stated that the situation was under control and that disengagement had begun in the Galwan area of Ladakh region..

Both Beijing and New Delhi have accused each other’s Army of violating the consensus that the two sides have arrived at to solve the skirmish.

India’s political illusions about China are becoming increasingly unsustainable and Delhi has arrived at an inflection point in it’s policies towards Beijing. If Beijing refuses to restore the status quo ante on the frontiers, it will push India irrevocably towards a comprehensive and long term political, diplomatic and military strategy of responding purposefully.

At this backdrop, it is necessary for India to introspect it’s foreign policy with regard to it’s neighbours and hence re-design it to maintain peace and tranquility in Asia in general and South Asia in particular.

In pursuit of it’s Hindutva agenda, India has meddled the Kashmir issue with it’s political adventurism. By revoking unilaterally and unconstitutionally Article 370 and 35A, India undermined and fraught the disputed nature of the state. Such political stance has provoked not only Pakistan, but also China. By making Ladakh a separate UT and making provoking statements of taking back Aksai Chin has taken the attention of Chinese leadership and military brass.

Delhi can’t ignore the profound change in Beijing’s world view and the new sense in Beijing that it can afford to take on all comers. Nor can Delhi turn a blind eye to President Xi’s political swagger, China’s growing assertiveness in the territorial disputes with it’s neighbours, it’s simmering cold war with the U. S, and the PLA’s aggressive postures on the ground.

New Delhi should activate all political lines of communication with Beijing, including the ones between the special representatives to the border negotiations and the foreign ministers, to make the point and take it forward.

In this context, the strained ties with Nepal over Lipulekh pass for Kailash Mansarovar, and then remapping of Lipulekh, Kalapani, and Limpiyadhura as it’s areas are diplomatic setback for India much to the advantage of China. In addition to the CPEC, eye-sour for India is thread of the BRI and predatory debt diplomacy.

Under these circumstances, India should continue it’s endeavours to consolidate it’s solidarity and amity among neighbours and all democratic powers of the world.
