Farewell teenage!

Yes you guessed it right, your boy is turning 20 this month. Can I still call myself a boy? I don’t really feel any different mentally or physically but I guess that so is the concept of age. Today you’re 19. Tomorrow you’re 20. Okay that maybe didn’t come off as cool as I wished.

The blog that I am writing is especially aimed at early teenagers. Plus it’s also meant for people who are older as I want to know things they would’ve told to their 20 year old self.

Moving on, here are a few very important things that I through experience have learned and realized and and I want to comprehensively share with you guys. I’ll keep these as original as I can.


1) Specialize 

Be good at something. It’s as simple as that. The age that you are in now is the best to polish yourself. Your mind is swift, your body can adapt plus you learn easily and much quicker, needless to say the ample time of practice that you have. Why did I put this on number 1 you ask? Because life is a race, you got to make your value. You can’t be “average” and expect miracles. So my dear young energetic fellows, dont waste all your time on random stuff. Just find your passion or your interest and get better at it, be it any sport, art, music or anything. You can do it. Because this is your time to groom.

2) It’s not the end of the world. 

“When you’re young everything feels like the end of the world. But it’s not; it’s just the beginning.”

You are just getting started. You have way more ahead of you. So trust me when I say this, that girl or boy that just seems out of reach is not worth it anyway. There is no point crying over them because a year later, you wont be the same person. That’s the thing about early teenage. And that exam that you didn’t score good in, it doesn’t really matter. You just have to make sure that you develop the habbit of hardwork and that’s all. You tried your best. Make this habbit of working hard. The results right now do not matter that much.

It’s okay not to score good, not to fit in, to be different. It’s all okay because in a few years time everything will be better.

3) Enjoy this time

This time will not come again. Love it or hate it(though I prefer the former) you’ll never be this weird semi-adult again. The highschool charm, the lack of responsibilities and comparitively easier studies. You better enjoy it because life in college can get a little messy to be honest but they get more open and fun too. That’s a different debate though.

Love your parents. Show them gratitude for what they do for you and be thankful for every good person that comes through for you. Do not pay attention to the naysayers, to the haters because they DO NOT MATTER.


And that’s it. 

I’ve attempted to make it original and a little less mainstream. Plus it’s a blog after a really long time so apologies for the not-so-good style or any errors.

And finally, I’ll write it again requesting the 20+ fellows to comment the most important thing they would’ve told to their past 20 year old self. Enlighten me.

Thanks a lot for your time and attention.



More generous than Hatim al-Tai

via Daily Prompt: Generous

Hatim al-Tai. The name is familiar. An Arab poet who is famous throughout history due to his unparalleled generosity. The word generosity is synonymous with Hatim al-Tai in many cultures. We think of him as the most generous human being but he himself thought otherwise.

One day, a companion inquired him about the most generous person Hatim al-Tai had ever met. He replied that once a man fed him and his forty other companions some camel meat, he was the most generous person he has ever came across. Surprised the companion added about the little magnitude of this favour compared to what Hatim al-Tai had been doing his entire life. To this, Hatim al-Tai explained that the man served them liver of one of his camel and upon being praised for the delicious food, he kept on bringing more. After the large group of people had eaten they inquired about where the meat had come from and found out that the man had slaughtered his entire herd of camel just for the liver part so that he could so graciously feed the people. The man sacrificed his entire herd just to feed fellow humans.

This teaches us a simple thing, we can all be generous. It doesn’t matter about how much we possess, it’s all about the intention to bring good, it’s all about the heart that wants to make this world a better place.

Story: Lost Bicycle.

Hey there! So this is a very bewildering yet interesting thing that happened to me. Wind back the clocks to 2011. I was a kid, 14 years of age. I had to get something from the plaza about 50 meters from my house. I took my bicycle and set off.

As a kid always day dreaming, I reached the Plaza, purchased whatever I had to and came back home ON FOOT. Can you believe it? Went on bicycle, forgot I had gone there on my bicycle, came back home walking. As I reached my house, someone from my family inquired about my bicycle. Mini heart attack haha.

I rushed back to the Plaza only to find nothing. The bicycle wasn’t there. After quite some time of looking, I came back home disappointed, accepting that my foolishness had cost me my beloved bicycle.

Now I had nothing to ride on but I finally accepted it, I have no choice other than to just forget about it. Unfortunately.

Fast forward two months. I had some work that happened to be in the same Plaza. I entered the building, went to the shop and when I was about to exit the building, I saw something. A RED BICYCLE tied to the staircase that looked exactly like mine. But it was all polished and decorated with stickers that made me question whether it was mine or not. As I was looking at it, a man from the opposite shop came inquiring. “Is this bike yours?” I asked. He said “Yes.” I wasn’t convinced. I told him that it looked exactly like my bike that I had lost.

At this point he started laughing. He admitted that this bike is not his. He found it outside the Plaza where it was there for about a week after that he decided to just take it home and clean it. This confusion is still there in my mind as I checked the entire building perimeters when I had lost it. Things didn’t match up. This question still remains.

Now with this thing that it was indeed my bike that I had LOST. I asked, “Can I take it?”. That’s when he said “You’ll have to pay for it”. After a short pause he said “with a box of sweets” and gave me a cheerful smile.

I took my bike. Went to the sweet shop. Got him sweets, which we ate in a cheerful way. That man was one of the best people I have ever met and this Act of KINDNESS still inspires me and teaches me to be a better person and to be compassionate towards those who are in need.

So this was one very confusing yet bright story of my life.

Stay safe and lots of love!

Starting at a new place

Hi everyone! So you guys know that it’s September already which means the end of summer holidays and the start of schools, colleges and universities.

And for some of us, it’s extra special because we are joining a new institution.  I am going to start university. Now what to expect? From my past experience of joing a new place I will try to get some key information to you guys.

Yes, we all tend to forget this but things can not be the same. However, it’s not something to freak out about. The change is for good and only when you decide to change is when you start to learn and grow as a person. Moreover, within a few weeks you will adjust and the new place will no longer be the NEW place, it will be where you belong.

It is okay that you are not making tons of friends right away. After all it is a new place and you need to give yourself time. Just stay confident, wear a smile and don’t slouch!

Making new friends does not mean forgetting the old ones, stay in contact!


Once again, I wish you all the best for your new journeys. Remember God is with you, and everything will be fine!

“And suddenly you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
