What to expect from your expectations

“Expectation” may look like a simple word, which we use in our day to day life. It looks even more simple, when we look at the fact that a lot of expectations die on daily basis.

Now if we google this word ‘expectation’ these are the three meanings that we come across:

• A strong belief that something will happen or be the case.

• A belief that someone will or should achieve something.

• One’s prospects of inheritance.

When we read these definitions, we realise how realism develops when we move down. The first meaning give an optimistic approach on the contrary the third one is a more realistic approach. This clearly signifies what our perspective towards expectations should be.

We all have expectations from all most everything in our life. We have expectations from our jobs, from the people that surrounds us and from our life taken as a whole. Sometimes these expectations are fulfilled, sometimes they are not.

This is the time we should stop this cycle and should reflect upon our expectations. We should better realise what we expect from ourselves rather being lost in the thoughts.

Because ultimately its what we expect from our expectations.

What do you want to be?

What do you want to be?

A question we face in our childhood. And our decision makes all the difference.

A short story on this topic, hope we all make the right choice.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the class, sister Martina spatted the duster on the table.

Sister Martina took the English lessons and was in this profession for the last fourteen years. Her wrinkled face and a streak of grey hair running down her temple could easily tell what all she has given to this profession.

The class was now silent and the students were looking at sister Martina. She started speaking in her sharp voice. “Today we will not study”, the students were surprised. “Instead we will talk, talk about what we all want to be”? There was again buzzing in the class. “So start thinking and speak for yourself”? Sister added.

The students started murmuring with sheer look of astonishment on their face.

“You get five minutes to think then you can come up voluntarily”.

Five minutes passes like the swooshing air. It was the show time now.

Nitin was brave enough to be the first one to speak. He came up in front of the class adjusting his spectacles, like any class topper would do. Addressing the class he began in his confident voice, “I want to be an engineer and want to help in the technological development of our country.”

Everyone clapped for him. Second was Neha, she came up and said, “I want to be a doctor and save life of others”. She also got a big hand of applause.

Then came Ibrahim, he said “ I want to be a lawyer and study criminal law”. He was followed by Arjun who wanted to be a politician and bring a change in the system.

In between all this sister caught the eye of young Ali. A timid boy sitting in the corner, lost in his own thoughts.

Sister threw a chalk at him. “Looks like someone is not interested in all this ‘want to be talks’” she said in a sarcastic tone.

Ali got up suddenly and immediately said sorry, knowing he wasn’t paying attention.

“So Ali tell us, what were you dreaming of, what do you want to be”? Sister asked ali who was still lost somewhere.

“I was just thinking, what is less bad that i can be”, Ali said in a low tone. Sister was curious now. So she asked Ali to elaborate his point.

“I was just thinking about all the professions my classmates just mentioned and which one can i choose and be a little less bad”.

“What do you mean? How can you be one of those and be bad?” Sister asked anxiously.

Ali tried to explain his thoughts. “I mean, I have an engineer in my neighbourhood, he is always drunk and beats his wife. And i just read about some racket of doctors that were selling organs of the patients. And the lawyers are alway into saving the criminals and delaying justice. And of course politicians these days are worst of all”.

Sister Martina was was silent as she didn’t knew what to say. Somewhere or the other Ali was right. Instead of saying anything she asked Ali what has he decided.

Ali paused for a while with a serious look on his face as if he has taken a decision that would change his life and he was right, it will change many things. After sometime he said, “Sister I think why not be a good human first. We can be all other things later on. But if we are not good humans then everything is just a waste”.

Sister was moved by this statement, there was a big smile on her face. She just stood up and started clapping for Ali and do did the whole class.

Ali was also very happy. He was satisfied with his thoughts and moreover he knew, ‘He made the right decision’.

Journal of a “Senior”

Being in the final year of graduation is a totally different state. Its like a situation where you urge for utopia but end up in vain.

Yesterday I was thinking about this transitory yet an important phase of life. And I realised that the situation is not at all a low key. Moreover there is a stipulation of vigorous hard work and dedication.

Also the superficial mentality of the society is making it even worse. For the society being affluent is much more important then being good. But the amenable fact is opposite to this. This is the ludicrous thinking our society is into.

Being the protagonist is not always important. Sometimes you should be intrepid to do what you feel like and the success always comes as a counter part.

Maybe we can understand the real meaning of education someday. May be we could come out more as educated. May be we could come out from the dilemma that we face. And may be we could build a better world tomorrow. 😊

Life consists of two days, one for you and one against you. So when it is for you don’t be proud and reckless and when it is against you be patient for both days are test for you.

– Imam Ali

Someday!

This is a short rhyme for all those surviving in the systems. Systems, we humans have developed and now face difficulties to step out of them. And moreover the fact, we cannot blame the system alone. So time to get yourself together. Time to set for that “someday”.

This is for all those hard times and what they make out of you. For all the right we stand for, making the fact clear that we are sure about it. So here it is;

SOMEDAY

Someday, people may leave you behind,

Someday, no friends you will find,

Someday, the society will ruin your mind,

Someday, you may be accused blind,

That day, will be your chance to bind,

To stand up for yourself, firm and aligned,

To come out of the odd and,

Be an example for this mankind!

Suhaib Husain

All the best!

Peace!

Vanquish The Evil

It was a sweltering afternoon. The sun was at its zenith, making me squint. The heat was so intense as if it would burn down the epidermis. There were hardly any sign of breeze or of clouds making the situation even worse.

Amidst all this i was in my train. Journey is not a good option especially in this hot and humid weather. But sometimes all you could is nothing.

The train was moving at its usual pace with the same sound of collapsing iron pieces. I was traveling along with this beautiful couple and their daughter. The daughter was about 2 and has started to speak recently, it was quite clear from the half clear words coming out of her mouth. Her voice was so sweet and it made those words even more special. I was enjoying the journey so far seeing the family playing together.

The mother was playing with the daughter and asking her questions. To every answer their was a loud laughter. But in between all this play and fun i heard something and i have been thinking about it since then.

The mother all of a sudden asked the daughter, “what is the colour of mamma” to which the daughter replied “white” and the mother again asked “ And what is the colour of papa” to which the daughter said “Black”.

The mother laughed loudly at this. The father immediately said in protest “No papa is white and mamma is black”. And they all started laughing at this.

I was left spell bound at all this. And was in utter confusion as to how should i react. The kid has got no thinking of her own. She is just beginning to learn things. And what is she being taught. That black skin colour is bad and white skin colour is good. Unknowingly we are inculcating racist ideologies in our kids. Who told her that black is bad and white is good. No one. But she is learning this from her parents and she will follow this ideology for the rest of her life. Who are we to differentiate amongst the different skin colour and spread hatred. Who are we to mark any colour as superior or inferior.

The fact is actually that we have inherited this hatred, and it lies deep within. Its time to treat all as one. Its time to respect everyone. And teach our new generation this, the sense of togetherness.

  • My name is Suhaib Husain, i am brown. No colour is superior or inferior to me. I stand against racism. Let us all join hands against racism. The evil in our lives is the ghost of racism, let us all vanquish it now.

For all those knowledgeable people out there It has correctly been stated:

“And among His wonders is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your tongues and colors.  For in this, behold, there are messages indeed for all who are possessed of innate knowledge!”

(Quran 30:22).
