EMOTIONAL FRUSTRATION

Hello all,
Frustration was once known as anxiety and found in disturbed people only. Those who suffered from it were treated sympathetically by normal people. These days it becomes a routine in the life of many around the world.  Though people living in developed countries face less of it still it is there with different shapes. There is a global reason for uncertainty and disturbance between countries. Global warming, race of nuclear power and Socio-economical conditions are also one of the reasons.
These big words were once meant to think tanks and superior head of countries but now media shares each and every news of the world to the public. The positive aspect of this is “awareness” i.e. requirement of the time. But the negative impact is, sometimes a little incident affects a lot of a common person.  For example, if there is a planning of coup to some country and there is the severe rift between them. In this situation, a soft-hearted people obviously take it very seriously. The reason behind it that we have seen so many wars and their destructions and a normal person is not in favor of anymore. This is all power and number game and nothing else. Such disturbing news raises the frustration and anxiety all over.
Natural disasters, oppression towards humanity and discriminations are also a part of our daily news. There is a rift of unfair distribution of boundaries, people are having financial crisis and cruelty is at the peak. Innocent people are being murdered in café, educational institutions, worship and at other public places. Selfish people are not limited to one place they spread their feet all over the world. No country is safe. Developed countries have power and they deal with all but people of developing countries are facing terrorism, target killing, uncertainty and financial crisis in their vicinity. This is also supporting frustration.
Population, pollution and poor economic situation are also affecting people in many developing countries. People are moving to urban areas for better financial chances. This situation is very alarming in the cities of such third world countries. It affects a lot where people are more and state resources are not enough to manage them all. In such circumstances, first of all, traffic is becoming a mess. We are witnessing a daily traffic jam even in side roads. Long queues are and noise pollution is a routine that increasing stress in people.  Earning opportunities are also less as compare to the population.  This environment is affecting in a way where crimes are increasing and creating more emotional frustration in the young generation.
In developed countries, life is busy and everyone has time handling problems in daily routine. People try to resolve their problems by putting their responsibilities to various service vendors. Latest technologies lead us away from our loved ones; mobile and internet (social media) is a necessity but people waste a lot of time apart from their job.  We have the day to night entertainments that weakens the binding between families. This environment allows selfish people to attract and mislead the new generation by leading them towards bad practices.
At the family level, people are away from each other; they love to meet the persons those are only favorable to them.  Sometimes we ignore our loved ones in the race of success and achievements. This ignorance is also making our young generation frustrated, illusionist and daydreamers. It is not a healthy thing for a growing kid. We should pay attention to our children in a way to develop their personality. Improving living style is not limited to good food, standard schools, brands and luxury vacations. Personality is something that makes a person good or bad in a society. No matter in what situation we are living we can educate our children to be a good citizen.

 

In my view, a change at the family level is more effective to build a sensible society. Organize your every day in a suitable routine; wake up early, spare a little for exercise, do yoga or meditation. Keep an eye on your diet plans, think positive and do not interfere in others lives. A little prayer according to your belief is also a wonderful idea for the purity of soul and mind. Of course, we all are not having equal opportunities in our lives but one thing is free of cost, i.e. positivity. This will keep you away from worries and frustration. We should not see others change but take a start at yourself, be a role model and do care about kids as they are the future of human beings.
Best regards.

SUPERSTITION

Hello all,
According to many readings and scientific readings, our illusions are due to some disorder in mental chemical levels. We overview a lot and make up our minds according to what we think often. These kind of beliefs are very common in our daily routine. These are called as superstitions and vary from area to area. Many times, they have no similarity between them in routine but the treatment of certainty is same. Another reason for these superstitions is that many clever and manipulative people spread their self-created instants between simple and illiterate people and influence them to believe them.  The worse ever I read was in stories where men or women were being burnt due to the belief that the victims are involved in witchcraft. It was a common way to take revenge from somebody.  In the subcontinent, there are many superstitions believed as true; actually, those are not because we do not have any concrete argument for their validity.
Here I want to mention few of them in a hope to get rid of them forever.
 
Black cat: If a black cat crosses your passage, you should come back and let the job undone as it will be harmful to go further. If you do not do so, the consequences will be worse.
Sneezing: Firstly, most people do not want to start their work if anybody sneeze, many takes a long pause due to it. It believed that it will not be beneficial.
Secondly, it is believed that whenever a dear to you thinks about you, you will start to sneeze or hiccup.
 
Cutting Nails: In the evening, cutting nails is thought to be a curse and old people forbid doing so.
 
Mirror cracking: Especially in India, it is strongly believed that if a mirror cracked it is the sign of worse happening.
 
Spilled milk; is also an occurrence for some bad luck.
 
Crow; is not much famous in the entire world, but whenever it caws at someone’s wall, it is believed that some unexpected guests will visit your home.
 
Crying cat; in the house is also believed as an alarm before some bad forthcoming.
 
Tongue bit by teeth; is due to when somebody abuses or says anything wrong against you in absence.
 
Eye flicking; if it is left eye then good for men and wrong for women and vice versa.
 
Shaking legs; though it is against manners to shake legs it is believed as a bad luck and reduction to income.
 
Thursday or Tuesday; both days are not believed as good to start a project between different believers. They think that work will be undone or prolonged if started in these days. Rain started on Thursdays is also presumed as it will last in a week.
This is just a glimpse, there are so many more. It is not Sub-continent but one can observe it all over the world. Number 13 is always considered as not good for all. I have seen in a movie where a pregnant woman with a band on her eyes, was led to two chairs upon one there were scissors. If she sits on an empty chair then it will be a boy and if she selects the chair with scissors then it will be a girl she is expecting.
Recently, I have seen a T.V show, in which they exposed a villager who fetched an ordinary turtle with some spots on its shell. He told others that these are holy names written on it. People started to believe and gathered to see such unique thing. The perpetrator started to call the turtle as “Baba Ji” and tried to convince others to put money in a bowl for “Baba Ji” and it will fulfill their wishes. Simple and illiterate villagers were trapped to drink the dirty pond water in which the turtle lived. They were told that it will cure their diseases. The crew and members of an investigating media team observed this all for many days and finally brought it on T.V. After being exposed, all the believers had turned into his opponents, they all started to abuse the culprit and became a part of the coverage team.
According to me, the result is that we should be able to spend our spare time in a joyous way and we do not need any logic or scientific research for it. We made our illusionary world with our own imagination and try to manipulate others to come and join us. In developed countries, there are still few with same problems but many have stopped to believe in such a waste of time. But the problem still prevails in developing countries, where education to some certain level is not common and illiterates are easy to influence and betray. Those are ready for surprises and looking forward to more miracles to be told. One can raise a question that how routine superstitions are harmful; the answer is “nip the evil in the bud”. We need to start this work from our daily life and to leave such nonsense. We have to raise our voice against such believing, as they are hurdles in developing one’s mind in a positive, good way and also harmful to a country’s growth as well.
Best regards.
