Can't I change?





One hazy morning, with a cup of tea in hand
I thought, why I can't 'change' the world?

I am not a philosopher,
so can't argue about good or bad
I am not an actor,
so can't pretend to smile when sad

I am not a politician,
so can't redefine the truth
I am not an astrologer,
so can't try to make lives smooth

I am not a reporter,
so can't fabricate a truth and cook
I am not a painter,
so can't give world a 'paradise look'

But, why do I need any recognition?
I can simply 'change' myself and 'inspire' few others,
won't it be 'great' if people treat 'the others' as 'brothers'?

Dear Deependra,

You have presented a great idea in a simple way. Until the last verse the reader has the curiosity, "really, can't I change the world?". But in the last verse you have nicely presented that we don't need to think far beyond our capacities rather than simply changing our selves to treat each other as brothers. Yes...that is our responsibility. That is social harmony. It should start at the individual level. then...Yes, we can change the world...at least someday.

Dear Friend,
Thanks for this nice post. Now I think I can catch it. LOL. I also agree with the sort of "internal change" -- as Roshan said "start at the individual level" -- that later this change can SPREAD NATURALLY (I guess) to others towards a better world.
Cheers, Mate!

गम्भिर चिन्तन राख्नुभएको रहेछ दिपेन्द्रजीले। निश्चयनै आफैंलाई बदल्न सक्नुनै दुनियाँलाई बदल्नु हो। "अप्प दीपो भव" भनेर बुद्धले पनि त्यहि भन्नुभएको हो शायद।

सुन्दर विचार पढ्ने मौका दिनुभएकोमा धन्यबाद!

Good thoughts. If everyone starts thinking your way then the world will be a better place for everyone to live.
I wish that one day your thought becomes reality.

This is not a comment related your post...however, I hope reader will like the following write-up:
*********************************
2008 New Employees Rules and regulations

Dress Code

It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary.

If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore do not need a raise.

Sick Days

We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

Toilet Use

Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of the three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open and a picture will be taken.

After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offenders" category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company's Mental Health Policy!

Lunch Breaks

Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Fat people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a slim fast.

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints,frustrations, irritations,aggravations,insinuations,allegations, accusations, contemplation's,consternation
and input should be directed elsewhere.

Great thoughts using perfect verses. This is exactly what was going on my mind, trying to change myself first and then looking out through the changed lens.

I am more than happy to exchange blog links with you.

I wanted to add something to Mukesh's write up:

Days Off

As we are very strict about the sick leave, but we however are very considerate about the deaths. You can have off for your death, but make sure you give 2 weeks advance notice :)
