Marilyn Monroe says……

in What's Viral by

Do you know who Marilyn Monroe is? If not then this picture of hers ought to remind you.

She was an American actress who is one of the most influential people from the past. Here are some of her quotes to know what a diva thinks about:

  1. “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
  2. “Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.”
  3. “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
  4. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
  5. “If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.”
  6. “When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them.”
  7. “We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”
  8. “Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.”
  9. “When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you’re gonna look up and say I lost a good friend.”
  10. “How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.”

 

Lost art of letter-writing

in What's Viral by

One of the interesting facts we were taught as children was pigeons used as carriers. But in today’s evolutionary world, gone are the days when we need to make deliberate efforts in order to make something happen. Technology reaches to new pinnacle points everyday. Text messages, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, E-mail has left no scope for the lost art of letter-writing. Have you ever written a letter to someone? Or received a letter?

Letters which connected people on emotional level who were separated by distance. The mother writing a letter to her son who studied in a school miles away and expecting a reply. A soldier at post surviving each day by reading, and then re-reading letters sent to him by a lover and tracing the alphabets with his finger to remember the shape of his lover’s affection. A grandparent to find a desired disruption from a monotonous life to find an ‘I love you’ letter by their grandchild and pins the painting sent by the child along with the letter on door of his refrigerator longing for another to stick beside this one. Can you fathom the agony of a teenager who waits for her birthday letters just to affirm her faith in the fact that she is still loved?

They are more that words written by hand on a piece of paper. They are an expression of personal thoughts and significance for the recipient. Meaningful efforts to strengthen relationships as well as the sincere outpour of feelings of a person who took their time to write. The familiar form of genuine words fill the recipient up with comfort on receiving a letter after a painful wait.

Try writing a letter and post it to someone you care about and see the effects by yourself. I know for sure that I would certainly love to get a letter.

Immortality: leave a legacy

No noble soul is left to live in peace. The envious want to see their downfall and go to such extents to disrupt their lives, to destroy their worth which is humiliating but they cannot be stopped. Amidst all this chaos flourishes humility, experiences, knowledge and other such appreciable qualities which can never cease to exist.

Noble people leave behind a legacy, abundant amount of ways in which they touch fellow lives cannot be forgotten. Like an inevitable fact, actions, memories, the consequences of their bold deeds linger for a long time. It is passed onto descendants as a token of love and wisdom which withstands the torture of time. Their immortality does not lie in their physical selves but in words they speak, actions as well as reactions to various situations, in what they write. Noble lives are so many kinds which inspire the whole of human race. They maybe writers, freedom fighters, teachers, artists, philosophers, thinkers, inventors etc they all have something immortal to bestow upon all which survives.

The struggles, the fights, the wins go down in history books, in pride of civilians, in foundation of a country. India owes to Gandhi’s efforts in obtaining Independence and no newborn would live without learning about this crusade. An 18-year-old girl left to fend for her state Jhansi with a baby boy on her back, Rani Lakshmibai won’t be wiped off our memory. Or that person no one has a clue about exists to this date in Shakespeare’s sonnet 55, must have been one good person. Rabindranath Tagore’s contribution won’t go unheeded.

Immortality lies in selfless deeds and help offered to needy. The lives made easier with some contribution. When people want to be like someone they idolize, those noble souls live in those people. It is true that ‘In the wreck of noble lives, Something immortal still survives.’ Live on with the best of you overcoming the best of time.
