The 'calls' you MUST TAKE

Since many days I have been fighting with myself for taking some calls which I had to take but still I strongly feel I could have avoided those. 

Often, as individuals we take calls every single day every moment . It can be as simple as what to wear and what to pair it up with , which route to take to work every single day or as is typical in Indian households what to make for tomorrow in terms of the food itinerary . 

There are some easy calls that you need to take and they do not impact much in life . Then there are some not so easy calls that you need to take and they may have an impact on your life . Lastly, there are some must take hard calls which definitely impact your life. It also depends how you see things and what is the heart-mind combination you follow up with.

My chance meeting with a flower seller aged 11 years made me understand that these calls are usually choices we make . These calls are usually linked back to who we are as persons and what we are as individuals.



The flower seller named Arsh took up to selling flowers at Delhi crossing way back when he was 6 . He said he has a simple funda in life . He likes to see people happy and smiling at him when persistently knocks on their car windows . For him , for those 10 seconds everyone is the car thinks about him , everyone who can see him sell the flowers also thinks about him .

He occupies mind space and for those seconds he blocks everyone's thinking . May be good and may be bad which we as humans might be thinking .  

Flowers make you smile and so do kids . There are some which roll their windows down and their are some which just don't.  Its a call which we take . 

When you as individuals take these calls be sure , very sure that its linked to something larger . Something which make you develop as a human and complete as an individual . Something which makes to at peace , happy at face and calms you.

Its hard to take calls but then life was never meant to be an easy walk .  Right from choosing a new smartphone , to making plan to your most wanted destination or for that matter picking up the right one you would want to marry - calls are all what we take in life. 

Look back and think in the weeks , months or may be years gone by the calls that you have taken may have changed you in more than one way. You may have not realized this but yes you did take a call . 
  
Next time ,remember me when you take calls . Remember , that you took a call to read what I wanted to share :)

On a lighter note,  I watched the first day show of the movie HIGHWAY  . Not many people would know , its based on something called as the Stockholm syndrome.  A tough watch but worth a watch . 

Also, you need to listen to the song - Patakha  Guddi sung very well by the talented Nooran sisters.
