Movies like “Bawarchi”, “Anand” and “Kal Ho Na Ho” portray characters who can meet, mingle with and befriend any fellow human being on this earth. Making friends and winning confidence of people looks like the easiest thing to them. They bring a glowing smile on the face and an aura of happiness around. Are such people confined only to movies? Is it a difficult task to undertake and execute in the real world?
Do such people have some special talent to achieve this? I don’t think so! To open ourselves to meet some stranger and spread happiness around him or her is not an un-achievable feat. It requires a change. A positive vibe and a self confidence, powerful enough to reassure those around us. However, those changes have to be explored or inculcated within us. Some may find it difficult in the beginning but it shows good results. It may be acquired like a reflex with continuous practice.
People may ask about relevance of such a habit. Is it worth enough to take such pains to modify ourselves in order to improve the conditions around us. Yes! it is. It is worth and it will always be relevant, in all ages. Don’t we often complain about lack of a healthy and good environment at work-place, hostels, classrooms, societies etc. There is a lacuna which has to be filled to make the environment healthy and conducive to productivity. This rectification can be done by changing our attitude, the way we think and our approach to life. The balance in nature demands a continuous and dynamic give-and-take relationship. So if we want happiness and positive vibes, we have to take measures to begin this ourselves, from within each one of us.
Let us practice this art. As the saying goes, we get what we give, sooner or later. Lets us spread happiness and get some in return.
