3 Day 3 Quote Challenge.

For Day 2, my quote is from the movie Rang De Basanti.


“There are only two ways to live your life. One is to live your life the way it is, tolerate everything that is happening and let the things be that way. The other way is to take responsibility and change them.”

This dialogue from the iconic ad revolutionary movie, Rang De Basanti is so true. How often do you hear yourself whine about the condition of your life, your surroundings, your country the world? Many a times, I have heard people in India whine about how dusty it is. But do you think that we have the right to complain when we have never even picked a broom, let alone clean the compound of your apartment? Your country’s politics is a mess. Join the politics. Set things right. Your boss is a sleazy obnoxious person who bullies everyone? Complain about it, take a stand. Things change, they do, but you have to contribute to the change. Just like Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see.”

          • Haha, you guys are too entertaining! πŸ˜… On the subject of the post, I totally agree Akanksha. I love your attitude to life and I wish more young people thought like you! (Oh dear… Am I embracing grandma-hood as well?) I’ve noticed it in Pakistan, as well. People complain about how dirty the streets are and then throw casually litter out of their car windows. Makes me want to bang my head against a wall!

            • Pleasure, my lady, to be of service πŸ˜€ Dekha Anoop? Everyone knows I right πŸ˜› And no, you are far from grandmahood, fortunately πŸ˜‰
              You know, but truthfully, not to brag, but for the past one year, I and my family have the habit of not littering, like we haven’t thrown anything, apart from maybe fruit seeds and stuff on the soil, and that is to plant trees πŸ˜›
              Also, we never take the wrong side now, as it the “popular” trend here, to take the shortcut UTurn instead of going round!
              Badge of service, anyone? πŸ˜‰
              Just kidding πŸ˜›


  2. Let’s make a robot which goes around and cleans the street by itself πŸ˜‰ hehe

    It can also mean that you are so so small that 5 years ago you were still learning to walk πŸ˜› (just kidding)
