What Do I Need In Life?



In the low and high tides of life, the question really concerns us what is to be needed most in life. Our needs are of individual but at very fundamental, the nature of our soul is same. so I think ,it needs same nutrition. Let me tell you what I feel about the greatest need of our life.



LOVE- For me, Love is not a word that can be so easily defined by Bollywood songs. Love can be felt, not instantly, but in complete awareness.Love completes us and fills the terrible void of loneliness. Well, I cannot define love but yet I can say what cannot be love. If anyone say his emotion ‘Love’ which is cuddled with envy, competition, distrust, expectation of receiving some thing, possessiveness and distortions of other’s individuality, I can definitely say, he/she is faking. I don’t how many person will be agree with my utopian thinking or ever feel such type of Love, But you know, hypothesis are basic steps of search. 

KNOWLEDGE- I remember, in childhood, how a small green leaf of a mango tree, filled me with amazement. The round marbles, we used to play enthralled us. Slowly- Slowly as I explored these things, the amazement died out and new things substituted them. Knowledge, I feel, is residual of our exploration. An instinct, to explore, is shared by everyone. Nature has infinite capacity for exploration and so our journey to attain knowledge is never ending. We reveal mysteries; we invent new things; we discover new dimension. This is all result of our undying thirst of exploration.


COMPASSION FOR HUMAN BEING- Well, I feel, it is the best way to use your attained knowledge. The significance of our life reflects from the radiating eyes and happy smile, which we bring out to human being through our knowledge, in the journey of our life. This is something which connects our soul and gives a significant purpose to attain knowledge. Peace and serenity are gift for our compassionate nature.

 One thing is evident is that all the three things, put above, are mental or emotional need. One need bread, cloth and shelter. But I think, somehow the fulfilment of these three will bring a more lovable, more humane and more intellectual being where bread, butter and shelter will not be a bigger issue..
Bertrand Russell truly says,
Life should be inspired by Love and guided by knowledge”

dunno abt others bt yeah I du believe in ur Uthopian theory of love .... I have once read... a fake lover talks abt hw much he loves you 2000 tyms but you will not feel it and a true lover convey his feelin jus once n u will go mad after him ... I dunno y ... I have alwaz felt n experienced it... n thus I believe it :)
"Inspired by love, guided by knowledge." seems like a famous tag line. :)
Wishing you that you find all the three in your journey,

very nice post amit!!
I got reminded of a quote said by buddha, "If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change"
This seems to be nothing but if we analyse it,we will understand what is life...
About love, its like,pi - natural, irrational, and very important (Engineer brain!! :P)

Thanks a lot.. :)

glad that u liked it.. :)

well, Love and compassion are very similar in nature.. But some how I feel there is subtle difference between two..
I think, compassion is emotion which emerges by seeing the pain and sufferings of people. There is subtle sense of superiority for which u r grateful to existence and want to help others as a basic duty towards others...It is more a sympathetic feeling due to human's empathetic nature.

Love is subtly different from compassion as it is emotion you feel to see your girl friend, or ur parents, in which there is no hirearchy, no sense of duty,but a emotion that makes you to be with them forever....I feel it is somewhat biological and a gift given by existence to everyone....

I can say for a very spiritual person like Buddha, these two emotions would be entwined into one..
But as a rational ground, We can differentiate the two....

thanks for the beautiful comment.. I have tried my best two differentiate the two..
May be, it is not perfect..
But any how..
cheers!!!

Women-Empowerment (A Short Story)

Her spectacle ridden red eyes were trying to run away from the crowd as soon as possible. Every person was looking so alien, so dreadful.  Her heart was pounding so fast, it felt it could come out anytime. She closed her eyes; took a long-breath; chanted a prayer, perhaps to stabilize her trembling soul. But it was of no use. In the high decibel of the noise she had already lost her ability to hear her own words. Somewhere at some meters away she found a corner.  She moved towards the corner with her shuddering legs but alas! Her blurring eyes were proving too difficult to keep open. She fell down and in a few hours she was laying against white bed-sheet in the government hospital. She didn’t know who took her there.  She moved her eyes everywhere to search some known faces. But there was no one. Finally she closed her eyes. So how are you feeling now? She heard a male, soothing yet concerned voice, but not sure if it was for her or someone else. She opened her eyes slightly...As the ima…

LAKSHMEE- A short story (Guest Post)

Many years have passed since she left this imperfect and unjust world, but still she floats around in my memories time to time. Today I have decided to tell the story of Lakshmee as was perceived through my eyes. Lakshmee was born as a first child in a family which had seen a girl child after two generations. Although a boy would have been more welcome in this case also, Her arrival in this world was tolerated or I dare say welcomed in much better way than many of other girls had in my village. At that time you could guess by the silence and gloom at home that a girls had arrived or by noise of celebration that a boy had been born. A feast was arranged as celebration for her birth which was generally reserved for boys. Her grandfather christened her Lakshmee, consoling his son that she will bring prosperity, material and money as well as many boys to family.
She was a very lovely child with plenty of smiles and comfortable with anyone wishing to carry her in his/her arms. Since she wa…

Begging Future

Scientists believe that after a certain period especially childhood, our mind does not develop; it just gathers knowledge, makes it experiences and learns new things.Freud, the father of psychology claims that till that age, the way our mind gets shaped; it lasts for our whole life and defines our behaviour and character. So, the important point which I want to draw is that childhood is the most crucial period which decides and defines our future.
To grow a child, is an art, the most beautiful living art of existence. But unfortunately, everyone doesn’t want to reveal his art as they have never felt the joy of this art Or maybe they would have work more prior to this. So their creation is not perfect. A child needs care, love, humbleness, spontaneity; which most of people would be mistaken by fulfilment of economic needs. Well, a good school can substitute the role of parents to an extent but not completely.
In case of India where good schools and perfect parents are a distant fantasy f…
