Some snippets of July 4th, 2006

My friend from Assam was feeling very bad about the news coverage by the so called news channels. She was telling me that there was not even a mention of the bomb blasts that have been happenning in Assam but the Rakhi Sawant-Mika news made the headlines everywhere!!!!!!!!So are the news channels listening???????

**********************************

People in the I.T industry atleast have been busy making their lives more luxurious. But does happiness follow these comforts? Why is this word "stress" becoming so prominent? I am sure that our elders would not even have heard of this word "stress". Life is getting more and more complicated. And most of the times we find ourselves entangled in the webs that we weave. It looks like we are all searching for that "something" for our life. But then haven't the wise people told us that all the answers lie within us? Haven't they told us that all the peace and happiness rest in our souls?

**********************************

My latest crush is "Mitwa" from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. When I heard this album for the first time, I had missed out on this song. I did not like this album at all because I really had lot fo expectations from Shankar, Ehasaan and Loy. But then I listened to "Mitwa" due to my friend's reccomendation. The singer is Shafqat aamanat Ali from Fuzon. I had heard him before. But in this song, his voice touches your soul. The music directors have done a good job by choosing him for this song. No one would have sung this like him.

************************************

I saw Fanaah sometime back. Few people told me that the movie was nothing extraordinary and that I should not really take the trouble of watching it. But then how could I afford to miss the movie with Aamir and Kajol [they are my favourites:)]!!!

Well, the story is nothing new. But the performances by the lead actors are worth watching. I wonder why Aamir and Kajol have never been paired before! I think they share a very good on screen chemistry and complement each other.

Well we earn more to relish more; but to earn more we work more; so when do we relish; thats the paradox of our age.

And as you would have heared "money doesnt buy happiness, but it does buy some interesting substitutes" and people are happy with the subsi only

I was reading up on a happyness research study yesterday. Some revealing factors -
(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/happiness_formula/4783836.stm)

-they concluded that standard of living has increased dramatically and happiness has increased not at all

-once you have a home, food and clothes, then extra money does not seem to make people much happier.

-According to happiness research, friendship has a much bigger effect on average on happiness than a typical person's income itself.

but... you are already in the rat race. the question is how can you get out? It takes extraordinary effort to do so, because you are trapped in a big system and everyone seem to be running fine with it and getting good at it!!

@rebus: Ya, true. Happiness has never been dependent on money. But then we realise that late.:)

@krupesh: Thanks so much for that link. I think we need to find happiness amidst this rat race. We need to find ourselves before we lose our identities.:)
