  1. The best thing to learn is to learn how to learn

One of the biggest mistakes we make in life is the way we approach education. We start learning new concepts without even learning how to actually learn. The sad thing about the education system today is that students are taught what to learn and not how to learn. This is a major loophole in the current education system which needs to be fixed for the prosperity of the world.

  1. Things are not as tough as they seem

You may often feel that life is not easy.  There are times when you are overwhelmed by the events and things unfolding around you. It may seem to you that things are getting difficult and you are not strong enough to deal with them. But, eventually, you start realizing that things are not as hard as they seem in the beginning.

  1. Your hobbies are not a waste of time

You are a unique person and you have certain things that you love doing which you called hobbies. It is good to have hobbies. They play a role in the growth and development of an individual.

If you observe the stereotypical way out society thinks, you will find that hobbies are labeled as acceptable and unacceptable. The acceptable ones are those which has something to do with art or literature. Anything else is a waste of time.

This is what is taught to us during our childhood days. As we grow up, we realize that those hobbies that were thought to be a waste of time were actually the things that made you happy. And, there is nothing more important than the things that make you truly happy.

My hobby is to collect information about any topic and make a list out of it. I love doing that. The recent list I have made is that of the best mobile phones under 25000 you can find in India. This list of best mobile phones under 25000 can help you figure out which phones suit your needs and buy it.

  1. The best things in life are free

The world is driven by riches. Flashy cars and fancy houses are what most people dream of and chase after. All these things come with a huge price tag which people pay. The question here is – do these things bring any happiness? Are they the best things in life. No, they are not. The best things in life are not cars and houses or any other material things. The best things in life are the moments you spend with your loved ones, the places you see, the fresh air you breathe, the conversation with friends and the feeling of being loved. All these are the best things in life and they come without a price tag.

Of rainbows and sunshine

There are times in life when you come across incidents which touch the deepest parts of your soul and make you a different person. One such incident happened to me on the 31st of December 2017. This was the time when I was in the final semester of my graduation.

Everyone in the hostel was in a party mood that night. It was the last day of the year and there was no reason not to celebrate that night. We were a bunch of crazy hostelers and there was no limit to the fun we were having.

While it was close to midnight and the world was ready to welcome the new year, there was a loud noise coming from the street. The noise seemed like the collision of vehicles. Just out of curiosity, we went out into the street to find out what was going on.

On reaching the spot where the commotion was happening, we saw a car turned upside down. There was a girl inside the car strapped to the seat belt. A few meters ahead, there were two teenagers lying beside a bike. People were trying to help them while they were crying in pain. The girl in the car was quiet. I couldn’t see her face.

Someone from the crowd came forward and tried to help her. It was then that I saw her face. It was Shreya. Shreya Jaiswal, my school time crush. She was one of the most beautiful girls I had seen. Seeing her in this condition was not easy. I moved ahead and offered to help.

Minutes later, I was inside the ambulance with her. I was there with her in the hospital. It was new year already. I had never had a new year event like that. I held her hand and kept looking at her face. She had the same baby face which made me fall in love with her in my school days. Only this time there were cuts on it.

Pieces of glass from the car dashboard had gotten into her face. I had the fear that her eyes got hurt. My fears came true when the doctors gave their reports after the initial first aid and examination. She had lost her eyesight.

I was in utter shock to know this. I couldn’t even think of the pain she would go through when she gets to realize that she has lost her vision. This was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life.

Days passed on. Her parents came and took her home. They thanked me for the help. I asked them if I could come to visit her sometimes. They said I could do that if she wanted to. I gave them my number and asked them to call me if there was something I could help them with.

A month later, I got a call from an unknown number. It was Shreya. She wanted to thank me personally. I went there and she was glad to know who I actually was.

After that, I started visiting her whenever I could. I would read books to her and share jokes to make her laugh. I even tried to convince her to learn braille. She listened to me and started taking classes. I helped her read internet articles by using a free online braille translator. This was how I was trying to be helpful to her.

Through these meetings, I started realizing that Shreya was not just beautiful from the outside, she was beautiful from the inside too. There was soon a time when we couldn’t remain far from each other. I was falling in love with her once again.

I didn’t know what she felt for me then but she did say something that really touched my heart and made me hopeful. She said that I was the sunshine in her life. I just smiled and held her hand that day.

My life before her was not bad, but there was something that was missing. She was the missing piece from my life. She made me feel complete.

Between that day and this day, many things have happened. My life has changed in a good way. She has become a beautiful part of my life now. She has come like a rainbow into my life and made my life beautiful and I intend to be the sunshine of her life forever.
