Names are like a wonder-world in themselves. They are just like stories, or more precisely like blogs: some blogs are just fascinating, some are beautifully embedded with thoughts. Powerful enough, names can make you fall in love with a person sometimes.
Except, as in my culture of religious beliefs and beliefs in priests, the initial of the name is
suggested decided by the priest after some spiritual calculations and meditations. The Initial letter of the name is supposed to be lucky for the child. As for these beliefs, most parents prefer to choose a name from the given initial. Sometimes these superstitions are so at a peak that parents tend to get the name of the child changed just because they feel he is having a bad luck.
Still, I am happy as to what my name is, for I believe that The name doesn’t build up a personality; It’s the personality that builds up a name. At the time of my birth, I received the initial P. My grandfather, being a man of strict personality, took two names and my parents had to choose one. So, I don’t know whom to give the complete credit for the name.
The meaning of my name is : “Symbol”
Well yes, I do think it suits me for I have this ambition of being an idol for others, and one day I would inspire many, as today I am inspired by many.
As for my children’s name, well I myself am not an adult yet so I have to build up a reputation for my name, before I can decide names for my children. For a conclusion, I love my name.
One world, seven continents, hundreds of countries, thousands of cities, and millions of people to meet. But roam around the world and you won’t find a place as comfortable as Home Sweet Home. The only thing that makes a place ‘home’ is family, especially Mother.
If I were in a world of barter system, and were given a choice as to trade whatever I wish, I’d trade emotions. If I could, I would take all the sadness and depressions of the world, and give away my happiness in return. The only reason for making this uncommon trade is that making the world happy, and putting a biiiiigggg smile on the depressed faces is what I always have intended to do. And yes, making them smile would give me more happiness to overcome the pain of the world I took in exchange, so yes I’ll smile seeing them smile.
“The best way to cheer up is to try to cheer someone else up.” – Mark Twain
With a feeling of respect to everyone’s individual thoughts and beliefs, I write this thought of mine.
If I had a choice and the power of banning a word, and not only banning its use but erasing its meaning from all the minds – weak and feeble, it would be the world ‘religion’.
Well yes, I know it’s a very controversial topic this ‘religion’ as to why I would choose such a pure and divine word to ban. Religion means worship in the most disciplined way, prayers in the most sincere way and fraternity in the most lovable way. It’s sad how I stand here against this devotional word, but I do oppose it with a spark of wisdom in my heart. If you had asked me the definition of religion maybe two to three centuries ago, I’d have answered with an expression of happiness and respect towards it. But sadly, this is the 21st century that has changed my opinion and perspective of Religion. Its astonishing how something as peaceful as Religion could be turned into a weapon with time. I don’t need to explain and exemplify you all as to how Religion stood not as a belief that there is just one God to all prayers, and that he’s the only umbrella to bar us from the showers of devil; but it stands now in this century to divide our brotherhood. I don’t say Religion is bad, for it teaches us to hate. No, Religion does not teach us to hate. It’s just that we do not perceive the teachings of Religion in its purest form. And I do feel a need of erasing the meaning of religion from the feeble minds, only till the time they are strong enough to believe in and receive the true meaning of Religion. And so I end with a beautiful quote in a bollywood film Oh My God –
Dharm aadmi ki zindagi mein ek hi kaam karta hai : Ya toh woh insaan ko bebas banata hai, ya fir aatankvaadi.”
(Religion works in the life of a human in just one way : Either it makes him helpless, or it makes him a terrorist.)
