Let’s make someone’s day this Christmas!

It is Christmas time and New Year’s is around the corner. How exciting right? šŸ˜€ We are leaving a whole year behind. It is time for new beginnings and I couldn’t be happier! šŸ˜€

So I see all these homeless people in front of drugstores and on the streets. Seeing them freeze in this cold weather honestly breaks my heart. Last year, around 50 people FROZE to death in Salt Lake City! šŸ˜¦

You know, one thing I have learned in life is that we should never judge anyone without knowing their story. Here are a few examples of how we are constantly judging others:

If a person is over weight, do not judge them! You do not know if they are going through a rough time in their life. May beĀ they are doing their best and starving themselves everyday! May beĀ they are hitting the gym every effin day!Ā May beĀ they are suffering from a disease. There are a million other reasons. But you do not know them or their story! SO STOP JUDGING THEM YOU IGNORANT HUMAN BEING!

DO NOT JUDGE!

If you see a homeless person on the street, do not judge them! You do not know if that lady on the street was physically assaulted and had no where to go. That man on the street might have lost a loved one. He might be mentally traumatized by the tragic incident in his life. The father of those kids might have gone through a divorce. Do you even know how much it costs to get a divorce? That old lady you see outside Walmart might have lost everything she had to a natural disaster! Look beyond what you see my friend!Ā

Look beyond what you see!

That movie star you keep judging for having a plastic surgery done, try and walk in their shoes for one day! I promise that you will never judge them ever again in your entire life! Do you realize how hard it is to be in the public eye 24/7? Do you realize how much pressure they are facing? They might have hit rock bottom in the past and this time they are not willing to take any risks whatsoever. They might be insecure about a certain part of their body. And why does it matter to you what they have done? It is their body, their money and time. It is none of YOUR business man! Stop judging them and do something in your own life!

This is the reason I always say that we need to walk in their shoes before judging them! So here is what I am doing this Christmas. Now please don’t start judging me! Haha! This video is only to encourage you guys! Please go ahead and help people who areĀ less privileged! And if you can’t help them financially, go and give them a hug! Sit with them and talk! Hugging and talking are therapeutic! Go and make someone’s day YOUĀ BEAUTIFUL SOULS! ā¤ šŸ˜€

XOXO! šŸ˜€ ā¤

Respect for Rohit Shetty movies!

So I am a typical Cancerian girl! Very sensitive, way emotional and a romantic movie buff. So because of this sensitivity, I can not stand loud noises, people fighting, yelling, hatred of any kind, blood shed and the list is never ending. And because of this weird nature, I have never been a fan of action movies. So if I am forced to go to a theater, this is how I end up watching an ACTION movie: I close my eyes with my fingers and ears with my thumbs throughout the movie. And if I am at home watching a movie, I skip all the action and blood shed.

Shah Rukh Khan
Ready, steady, po!

Everyone who knows me well enough knows one thing for a fact. I love Shah Rukh Khan! ā¤ šŸ˜€ He is someone I look up to! Working with Shah Rukh Khan is my ultimate dream. You mention his name and my face will cheer up. SoĀ in 2013, when Chennai Express came out, I had to watch it. After all, it was SRK! ā¤ I loved the entire movie. But when they started beating King Khan, I could not stand it. I skipped all of that action. It hurts when I see someone hitting SRK, even if it is not in real life. (I know it is silly! haha) So as you can see, I have a hard time admiring action in any movie.

But I came across Rohit Shetty‘s interview on Facebook this week. It was about his upcoming release Dilwale. We all know that SRK and Kajol are coming back together after years and I am super stoked about it! So I had to click on that link! Haha! šŸ˜€

Man! That video changed my entire outlook on action movies.! I felt ashamed of myself for not admiring people’s work. And here is the reason why.

Rohit Shetty talks about his stuntsmen who turn his vision into reality. They showed interviews of all those men, who risk their lives to entertain us. They have families that they need to feed. They have little kids waiting for them at home. Shankar Kotion has been working as a stuntsman since 1973 and he got burned while performing a stunt. It broke my heart when I saw his burnt hands. A big salute to him for still smiling and giving this interview.

I learned a lot of things after watching this video. I have started admiring action movies. I admire Rohit Shetty and his team’s hard work. Thank you for opening my eyes Sir! I hope and pray that Dilwale is a great success! My best wishes will always be with the love of my life, Shah Rukh Khan! ā¤ šŸ˜€

Check out this eye opening video! Stop criticizing people! Look at their hard work and dedication. And if you can not admire someone’s work, it is better to stay mum rather than spreading hate comments, or making fun of their work.

Being racist against your fellow American only because he is BROWN and wears a TURBAN?

 

 

An old friend of mine just sent me a message on FacebookĀ and told me that he was tagged in one of these pictures the other day. You ask why? Well, because he is a brown Sikh man.

First of all, let me take a moment to tell you about this handsome man in the picture. His name is Darsh Preet Singh. He was born and raised in South Texas. He is your fellow American. His friend Greg Worthington wrote,”That jersey he’s wearing in this pic, it currently sits in a Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC because he made US history as the NCAA’s first turbaned Sikh American basketballĀ player for Trinity University in my hometown of San Antonio. He was co-captain of that team when he played there. He’s worked in US Intelligence with the National Security Agency in the past and currently manages financial portfolios and hedge funds for some of the most compassionate companies in the US.”Just because he wears a turban does not make him any less American than you are.Ā 

Being a brown skinned Sikh woman myself, it hurts when I see this sort of racism in the country I have called home for almost 5 years now. Ā And being a human, any kind of racism hurts. I was a Teacher’s Assistant for World Religions and Asian Religions for two years. The ignorance I saw in kids always blew my mind. College going students are the future of every country. And whenĀ those students live in a bubble, are not aware of anything else except their own traditions, it becomes a problem for the society. These are the students who are tomorrow’s leaders and we really need to take action right now if we want a peaceful society in future.

This man! :/

America is a land of immigrants. And if the so called “white” people want all the immigrants to leave this country, then my friend, we all need to leave this country except NativeĀ Indians. Men like Donald Trump are making the situation worse. His recent call to barring all Muslims from entering the United States is going to increase racial discrimination. His supporters make me feel sick to my stomach. Bible teaches,”For God shows no partiality.” Then who are we to discriminate against people? I have one thing to say which will offend many people out there.But at this point, I do not care. America, Jesus Christ was not a white man! We all know it! Let’s face the truth here. Now are you going to discriminate against him as well? He was a brown man. Would his color make you respect him any less? I don’t think so.

If a person practices Islam, it does not make him a terrorist. If a person wears a turban, it does not make him a terrorist either.”You Are More Than 7 Times As Likely To Be Killed By A Right-Wing Extremist Than By Muslim Terrorists.”

Let’s educate ourselvesĀ about other cultures and religions. Let’s start popping our bubbles. We need to stop being like a frog in a well. We can never progress if we keep on discriminatingĀ and suppressing the minorities in this country.

Darsh Preet Singh is a Sikh. We follow Sikhism.”Sikhs believe that all those that believe in One God, irrespective of their faith are devotees of God, whether he is a Sikh, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or a Muslim. Where does the name Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Christian come from? It comes from the source that inspired you. If you happen to be in this part of the world and you were lucky enough to meet Jesus, then you became Christian but you are still a devotee to God. Sikhs happen to be in a part of the world where they happen to become familiar withĀ Guru Nanak Dev Ji‘s principals.”

Let’s love one another just like what Bible teaches in John 13:34-35. At the end of the day, we all are children or creations of God. Stop being ignorant.

Here are a few links if you’d like to learn more about our faith.

Relationships

Things you need to realize before tying the knot!

So one of my closest friends called me the other day, who hadn’t talked to me a whole lot since he got married. I asked him how he was doing and he said, “Life jhand hai.Yaar kabhi shaadi ni karni chahiye.Main pachta raha hun karke.” I laughed and didn’t realize that he was not joking. He was distressed. So I sat down and tried to analyze the situation. And then decided to jot everything down so that no one else repeats the mistake he made.

  1. Can you spend your whole life with them?
    First of all, I told him to sit down somewhere and see if he can spend his whole life with this woman. I told him that right now, it has only been a year. Can you spend the next 60 years of your life with her happily?

The lesson we can all learn here is that at times in life, a month of being with someone is more than enough to know them if they are being real. Otherwise, we can be with someone for 10 years and still not know them at all. We need to make an effort,Ā get to know each other and figure out if that is what weĀ really want in life. We need to show our trueĀ selves and try not to portray something that we are not. Be open about who you are.

2. People change! Learn to love them for who they are!
This is something we all need to understand. Let’s look at ourselves. Are you the same person you were 10 years ago? I sure am not. I am a lot stronger and opinionated than I was before. Change is natural. Our circumstances change, times change, seasonsĀ change and just like that, people change.

It was hard for me to accept this fact in life. But I guess thisĀ is what we need to learn. Do you love them enough to accept the changes in them that will take placeĀ over the years? Would you still love them the same way?

3. Break-up if your partner is trying to change you!

They decided to be with you for who you were. And now if they are telling you to change the same things they liked once upon a time, it is NOT acceptable. If you force yourself to change, you will lose your ESSENCE.

While talking to my friend, this is what I I told him.”Tu ping-pong ball ke jaisa tha, aur ab hwa nikli hui football ke jaisa ho gya hai.” We both cracked up after hearing these words come out of my mouth and he said,”Baatein to tu deep kar leti hai, par examples bade ghatiya deti hai. Aise ke bande ki mardangi nikal jaye.” We laughed but he knew that I was saying the right thing.

4. Are they trying toĀ distance you from your family and friends?

Before they came in your life, you already had your family and friends. Your partner coming in your life does not mean that you will start distancing yourself from your loved ones. If that is happening, it is a red flag.

My friend said that his partner complains about all his friends and then says that nobody likes her. She tells him to stay at home and not go out with his friends. He is losing everyone in his life.

5. Listen to your friends!

Once you get into a relationship, you will instantly know if your friends like your partner or not. Your friends know you a whole lot more than your partner does. When you look at a relationship from a detached perspective, you can figure out if two people are right for each other or not. So if your friends hate your partner, you should probably think about your relationship again.

6. Is it true love?

According to me, true love is the one thatĀ never dies. The way we love our parents, siblings, grandparents and school friends, that is what pure love is. When you are willing to do anything for the ones you love. No matter how many times you fight or get into arguments, at the end of the day, you love those people with all your heart and there is nothing more meaningful in your life than those relationships. So if you can love a person with that much passion, that is true love. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time my friend!

To be continued… XOXO ā¤
