Style like “Stars” but better be “Stars”

“Attitude is not what you wear … is what you are…….”

During my college days ……attitude was one word which we all use to laugh at because it was so extensively used by my professors that we were very tired of hearing that word …but trust me ….they were always right when they said “Attitude is not what you wear, It is what you are”. Though this was a very popular quote I heard it for the first time and many times in my college for various reasons…..hmmmmm certain facts might sound stupid, some might sound humorous some might be bitter …but Facts are Facts…..thats reality isn’t it? 

This was during my starting days in the college….. one of the popular public personalities in India had gifted me 3 to 4 small books about freedom fighters and true heroes (Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, Savarkar, Rani lakshmibai) on an occasion of Raksha bandhan (Indian festival). It was at the same time we had a presentation in our class where we could choose any Indian personality to speak about for 5 to 10 minutes…..

I had chosen to speak about “Bhagat singh” and if am not wrong there was this guy in our class who had chosen “Chandrashekar azad”as his topic of the day. What is special here is that this guy was a look alike of chandrashekar azad….He had grown mustache just like the one which great Azad had…

of course he spoke very well about freedom fight, army , role of Azad etc……..friends you might be wondering with what connection am talking about this guy , attitude, Great heroes …isn’t it?

Here it is …..

Many of us watch movies —> admire movie stars
—> wear what they wear —>That’s it
–>The End
Many of us read about great personalities —>admire their intelligence
—>Style like they style —>That’s it
—>The End
Many of us talk about great leaders —> admire their struggle
—> Enact like they act —>That’s it
–> The End

All that I need you to do is ask this question to yourself……

Is just admiration?? Wearing what a movie star wears?? Styling your hair like that of a famous person?? Buying what some star endorses??Talking fantastically without anything truly inside you is  allllllllllll that we call as an ATTITUDE   ??? Are these the only things which we are able to see in great personalities      ?????

Why don’t we take one step ahead and listen to the subtle messages of what these great personalities have told us without openly telling…

Their struggle, their hard work, their dedication, their learnings in life, and mainly their own and unique ATTITUDE have made them great and that’s the reason why they are role models, trend setters for us….

So I wish you wear your unique attitude (with good virtues) and you can set your own trend……..

At the end …for that person who was a look alike of Chandrashekar azad in my college class …whichever corner of the world you are ….you will be a simply great person if you have really dedicated your life in army or any other activities connected to social benefit because “Long back you styled like a star and today we wish you to be a star” …..its okay you can do it with that stylish mustache……..:-) 🙂

Cimplicityrockss 3 – Best Gift

 This is about that person who taught me a great lesson just in 1 sentence

There is a festival called ” Gowri habba” celebrated in south India during which brothers gift their sisters with bangles, saree (Indian traditional dress), flowers, fruits or any gifts which they can afford to. This custom has been followed as it symbolises prosperity and wishing good to sisters…just the way “raksha bandhan” is followed with respect to wishing good to brothers……Our family also follows this custom without fail every year……

Just like past years last year also I and my sister bought a saree and few other things to our aunt in place of our dad…. We were worried if she would like the saree colour or not ….with this doubt in our mind we kept an option open for exchange with the shop keeper and visited our aunt’s house…After our casual talks and coffee chats we took out the flowers, fruits and saree and gifted it to our aunt and told her….”please tell us if you liked this saree or not , if you want any other colour /or some other design then we can exchange it and get whichever saree you like”. Before even she saw the saree she told us

” It does not matter to me what design/colour the gift is , all that I see is while buying this gift you have kept me in your heart , I can see only your love towards me so whatever you gift me will be the best gift…..”

This is one beautiful lesson which I learnt from her as in our life we always expect expensive gifts , unique gifts , imported, branded ….the list goes on…..but friends have we ever thought that the person gifting us has so much love towards us and definitely would have gifted us with all that affection…how does it matter if the colour /design / brand is of our taste or not ? at the end of the day love and affection is the best gift. 

From the day i learnt this lesson ..I am able to see only the affection when some one gifts me and this has made me to respect everyone for their precious love and not just precious gifts….

I learnt about the best gift from her simplicity did you?
