Happy Women’s Day!!

“A woman is a full circle.  Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” Understanding a woman is a mystery and it needs lots of perseverance and knowledge. A woman is the epitome of love, sacrifice, care and ability to nurture life.

The ability to nurture life makes woman the most powerful and strongest being. She can play different roles with ease be it that of a dutiful wife, obedient daughter, caring mother or adoring sister.   

 

WISHING YOU ALL THE BEAUTIFUL LADIES “A very happy women’s day”

KEEP ON ROCKING!!

Kuch kami si hogi!!

Ho agar jahaa bhar ki Khushiyaan

Jholi mein meri

Fir bhi un khushiyon mein

Kuch Khalis si hogi

Bhar jaae bhaley taaron se

Kyun na aanchal ye mera

Fir bhi ek koney mein dil k kahin

Amaavashya si hogi

Chahey din ho jagmagatey roshni se liptey hue

Par raat toh wahi andhyaarey mein hogi

Ho jahaan bhar ki khushiyaan kyun na jholi mein meri

Fir bhi un khushiyon mein kuch kami si hogi..

An excerpt

The vital few and the trivial many:

Vilfredo pareto,the Italian economists discovered the 80/20 principle in 1897, which is now referred to as Pareto’s rule. He discovered that 80% of the output results from 20% of the input, 80% of consequences flow from 20% of causes, and 80% of results comes from 20%of effort. Joseph juran referred to this 20% as the vital few and the 80% as the trivial many. Sir Isaac Pitman, who invented shorthand, discovered that just 700 common words make up two- thirds of our conversation, He found that these words account for 80% of  common speech 

A student covers 80% of his syllabus in 20% of his study hours. About 20% of customers contribute of growth, profitability and satisfaction. 20 % of products and services account for 80% of the turnover, 20% of the employees generate 80% of productivity, the opinion of 20% defines the society, the output of 20% of the population defines the economy of the country.

80/20 thinking  is the secret of achieving more with less, Start celebrating exceptional productivity instead of trying to raise the average effort. Strive for excellence in a few things rather than good enough performance in many.

There is a tragic amount of waste everywhere, Almost four-fifth of everything that is happening in your life is yielding very little in return. Too  much focus is on the 80% which yields only 20%. Transform your thinking. Ra vamp your outlook. Reallocate your resources from the unproductive trivial many, to the productive vital few. Effectiveness is not about what happens to the 80%, but about how you manage, control and utilize the 20%.

20% OF YOUR TIME ACTUALLY DEFINES WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU WILL BE IN LIFE.

Focus on the 20% and 80% of everything in your life will be taken care of.

The cotton seed by Kajol Aikat

A reader Review:

The Cotton seed is a newly launched e-book by Mr. Kajol Aikat,a twenty years old Ranchi-based author who has done his schooling from DAV Public School, After doing BBA, he is currently pursuing his MBA in Marketing from BIT, Mesra, Ranchi.  

Prior, Aikat has three works in English literature to his name. His first novel was Unsocial Amigos (2014), second has been a short story, named Life isn’t a fairy-tale, in the anthology called- The Unbreakable You (2015), and third has been a romance fiction novel- Reason to Live (2015). All the books received overwhelming response .

This time the writer has tried his hands on a short story  titled as “The Cotton Seed”. The story has been brought from the lap of history. It reflects  the society of India in 17th century where women had to undergo a lot of traumas and were they  were considered of no use. 

The writer has portrayed a very strong  character named “Ira” in his story who is  a cotton seed  dweller, She believes in breaking the odd rules of the evil society and want justice and equal opportunity for all the women and works for uplifting  the same

 The main drama of the story relies on the fact that how this girl “Ira”  finds a way to help her village come out of misery and make a clear point for those who thought women has nothing to do with brains. The story is mainly based on a situation that arose in Dehri, a village in the state of Bihar and how Ira turns the unfavorable situation into an opportunity for herself and the villagers.

Generally In  short stories , it sometimes becomes difficult for the writer to describe each and every thing clearly for the understanding of the readers without getting dragged from the main focus point but Mr. Aikat has clearly succeeded in making the story to the point yet not leaving any stones unturned.

It is a very strong story with some good food for thoughts without any unnecessary exaggeration and extensions.

Main attraction about this story writting :

Amazing story, amazingly portrayed… Loved the way the author easily described everything and how softly the story ended just like the way In our childhood we used to hear tiny tales from grand ma 🙂

My final Verdict: Worth reading with a strong coffee and a happy face:-) Believe me this combo really works.

P.S   If you loved the plot of the story and want to know the whole of it, Please go ahead and get your copy from amazon.

Parinda!!

Khuley gagan mein jab udta hai parinda

Ho  befikr pankh wo failata hai 

Ghosley se nikal kuch paaney ki chaahat mein

Neeley aasmaan mein sair karta hai parinda

Chodh sukun ki chaadar

Anjaan aasma k neeley dhupattaey ko odh leta hai parinda

Es ummed mein ki hogi uski chhahat puri

Jee jaan laga kar udtaa rehta hai parinda

Ghosley mein tinkey hai pahuchaney

Osh girney se phle, dhaltey suraj sang lautna hai maksad uska

Yun basar kar zindagi apni

Kae nanhe pankho ko udnaa sikhata hai parinda

Pedo ki shaakho se upar uthh ucchaeyon ko chhuna sikhata hai Parinda
