Be a Slave or Be Selfish

My nephew (Sushant) has started his new blog and he started off with a great topic - Being Slave. However, as the comments started up and we picked up the debate it left me with this thought - "Be a Slave or Be Selfish". In one of his comments, Sushant mentioned that there is nothing called "Selfless deed" and argument being - if a person chooses to be selfless and take up pain, that is for their self-satisfaction and hence it is not self-less.

Destiny!!

Well this has me confused - It is also said - "you can choose your own destiny". If Destiny does exists, then no matter what I choose to do throughout my life, all those actions nonetheless lead me to a very predetermined destiny. So where is my free will? So why do I struggle everyday with all those decisions that I make? Why do I even exist as a puppet?

Deep dive | India’s route to Test#1

What I found was a revelation of facts that a lot of is was favorable and because of Australia and SA not doing their best and India matching up their worst or just being a little better.

Overall, it clearly presents a case where India has been more conservative on their test playing strategies - playing less, playing at home, don't loose and play safe to draw.

Now, if all that was played just as I can see all of those, good strategy to be number one. It is like saying "Let the others fight and diminish their resources and we will come on top because of their losses."

Now - please tell me what did Dhoni do to take India here - it just happened. With a good team and safe strategy forces were in our favor. I am happy we are number one, but Dhoni did nothing in all this to happen. As a captain he could not do what all others in the past have struggled - improve our performance overseas. Change that - and then be called a Great Captain.

The feeling of being stuck

I dont know who to turn up to for answers that are neutral; I dont know even if anyone can come up with a neutral answer. Every person has their experience and unique situation in their life and their answers are influenced by those situations. What I am feeling is unique in its own sense and I need to find answers in those situations only. I hope I can reach out to God and seek guidance.

Importance of Pain in Life

Another quote and one of my favorites: “The secret of life is to appreciate the pleasure of being terribly, terribly deceived.” And I am thinking – can one get pleasure in that? Did that ever happen to me?. It is a secret because we dont know how can you pleasure in such a thing 🙂…

Decisions

I will not change the course of the train and let destiny play its part for the kids who are playing on the track on which the train is bound. Maybe they are aware that that track is operational and are aware; or maybe they are just being ignorant kids. Who knows why that track is not operational and I may be putting many more at risk by making that decision.
