Best Of “BEST”

Best Of Best i.e., “BESTEST”.

This is what most of us looks forward for. It’s a general human nature that we look for the Bestest options.

Our thirst for satisfaction rarely dies, we keep yearning for “more”. Of course, this is essential for our growth also , if we don’t have desires, if we don’t have aims and targets we will just make ourselves stagnant. But, the point is , to what extent we should yearn for more? At times, we become so impatient that instead of enjoying what we already have, we start getting frustrated for what we don’t have. Instead of being thankful, satisfied and contented for 80-90% of the good things that we have, we waste time worrying about the remaining 10-20% that we don’t have?

It happens with most of us that if we are satisfied on personal front, we are dissatisfied on professional front, and vice versa. And at times if we are satisfied with everything in our life, we get dissatisfied by comparing ourselves to others.

I have came across several instances, like an employee complaining about the salary….then when salary comes to satisfactory level, they start complaining about type of work, then when they get good and more work, they start complaining they are over pressurised, then if superiors increases their team size to reduce their pressure they will complain that superiors don’t trust their abilities… and it becomes a vicious cycle which goes on and on… Please stop being a “Complaint Box” as it only messes up your own life.

The solution is very easy … Just spend some time with yourself…do your introspection….try to set your “PRIORITIES” and try to focus on things that matters more to you. Just find out what holds more significance for you- is it family, career, money, power, name or fame…..? Also it is important to be determined and committed to meet your goals and to set new goals once your defined goals are achieved but at the same time one should also learn to be patient….to move step by step – “No One Gets A Sudden RISE, Not Even The Sun..!!’

Always remember – “YOU CANNOT GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS”………

Unravelling the mystery of our existence..??


The origin of this blog is my orkut and facebook status update. As I had nothing new to update for past few months…I felt irritated and thought of describing my life in best possible one liner…”Life is so mechanical…Feeling like a ROBOT”….because my daily routine is like this.. Get up in morning, go to office, come back…read newspaper…talk on phone …have dinner and go to sleep and then comes the next day —– a NEW day with nothing NEW in it.

It’s amazing that, I have completed almost a quarter of my life and I really don’t know- WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE? What I want to accomplish or what GOD wanted me to accomplish. Of course, HE must have sent me on earth to serve some purpose…but what it is..?

Hope all of us remember our school days & of course, the most boring subject we used to have. How we used to study that? We used to study it just for the sake of passing exams & maintaining our percentage without actually understanding the real learning / motive involved in that.

I think the same is happening with my life. I am living just for the sake of living passing each day of my life without understanding the purpose of my life.

And I think not only me but most of the humans in today’s world are so busy chasing our MATERIALISTIC DREAMS that we don’t even get the time to think about the motive of our life.

Now , when we are stuck in some problem and you don’t see any solution, what is the approach? Look for other similar things / situations & observe them. This is wat I did to find answer to my questions. I m one of GOD’s creations and there are so many other creations of GOD around us : – Water , Air , Sand, Trees , Mountains …… And what is common in all of these? They are serving other creations of GOD. Now , we may think that I am doing job and serving my company. But here lies the difference. We are serving and we are earning. But all other GOD’s creations are serving unconditionally without expecting any favour in return. For instance, water is essential for humans, animals, trees & is therefore serving us but does it want anything from us in return—NO, nothing…

But most of the humans just think about “ME “ & not “WE”. Even if we serve or help someone we expect a favour in return.

All the conflicts, disapproval, jealousy, hatred in this world – be it at family , office, city, state or national level is just because of lack of cooperation, understanding & helping attitude towards others.

Though we humans have brains , thinking power, intellectual ability & I won’t say we have not used it. We are today using air and water as means of transport. We are today using trees for furniture, paper and many more things. In short, we are making “Optimal “ use of all of GOD’s creations. BUT ARE WE DOING “OPTIMAL” USE OF OUR OWN EXISTANCE ?? – NO.

Have we ever thought , what GOD wanted from us when HE created us ? What are HIS expectations from this world and all HIS creations?

Let us take an example…

All of us know about JIGSAW puzzles in which we have blocks or cardboard pieces of different shapes jumbled up. And we are supposed to join them to get some beautiful picture or image as its outcome.

Now , coming back to humans. Have you ever wondered why all humans are different? WHY GOD HAS DONE SO MUCH DISCRIMINATION? Everyone has different qualities & attributes- some are too intelligent while others are not, some are rich some are poor , some are practical , some are emotional & so on… Each and every human being is Unique.

This is because I feel all of GOD’s creations are HIS JIGSAW puzzle. Because if HE made me complete with all qualities and perfection why will I talk or cooperate with you? HE WANTED US ALL TO COOPERATE & HELP EACH OTHER & LIVE WITH UNITY TO COMPLETE HIS JIGSAW PUZZLE – TO MAKE THIS WORLD HIS PERFECT MASTERPIECE.

But unfortunately, inspite of being so brainy this world failed to understand this message.

So, I have hit one ball and the next one was ready for me i.e., How to proceed in fulfilling the purpose of my life? I am just one single entity of GOD’s Jigsaw puzzle and my efforts alone won’t be sufficient to solve this puzzle.

Can anyone help in finding out a answer for this question ?
