Do You Love Your Dog? Or Yourself?

Many people who keep dog(s) as pets are more concerned with what they are getting out of their companionship with the dogs, rather than thinking about their dogs as a sentient beings with genuine requirements.

See, if a person is a dog-hater, that explains a lot of things and we know what to expect from him. But what about people who profess a love for their dogs, only till it is convenient, they are being entertained, or their house does not need remodeling (example 1, example 2).

Relationships are a two-way street, and our dogs may have needs which inconvenience us, cost us money, our time. And this is where you have to ask yourself - you love your dog, or yourself?

Frankly, if someone can unload their dog like this, then for me, they do not have a true relation with anyone.

Doing My Bit for Financial Inclusion by Guiding and Encouraging

Inspired by Dhirendra Kumar's article on Value Research encouraging us financially literate Indians to do our bit for financial inclusion, especially in the light of initiatives taken by government, I encourage and guide people whenever I see fit.

For example, recently when I was early to work, I chatted with office boy, who's a young unmarried boy. Besides the small talk, I encouraged him to take up a second job, as he doesn't have the responsibility of another person on his shoulders yet. Also, I asked him if he had a bank account. He said no. I encouraged him to open a bank account, save money, take Prime Minister insurance schemes (for Rs 12 and 330). He nodded.

Come On Mother, I Don't Have Whole Day - Cutting In Line By Some Devotees When Paying Obeisance (Darshan)

People try to game the system, advise you to follow the rules, while they themselves bend the same rules for disproportionate personal benefit. But what about when you are going to pay obeisance (darshan) to God?
