Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf-  Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

 

I ask myself ‘ which book would be the first one you would like to reread ?’

Tough question as my bookcase has all my favorite books which I purchased with  money I saved and spent on books instead of cloths. Osho, Paulo Coelho, Deepak Chopra, Dale Carnegie, Robin Sharma, Brian Tracy and many more have accompanied me for many years. I never get bored reading anyone from these. I have some light comedy, suspense, detective novels also which I purchased with clear intention that they are not just one time read. Read and throw away time. I never waste money on them. Sorry, I’m drifting away.

My first purchase was ‘ STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING’ . I stumbled upon this book in my friends place and got hooked to it.

I never believe in asking solutions for my problems to others. I believe every problem comes with a solution.

I got this book at a time when my son joined Indian Navy, my daughter got married, my husband is somewhat workaholic and I was suffering from chronic some diseases and was very depressed, always worrying.

This book came as a boon to me. There are not only causes and analysis for worries but simple solutions and stories of other sufferer and how they could come over their worries.

When you read about others problems then only you realise that how tiny or petty are your problems.

Little understanding, not running away from problems, facing them, trying to find a solution, little exercise and meditation all helps.

So when I find time I reread this and one more ‘Maximum Achievement’ by Brian Tracy and recommend to others also.

Daily Prompt- Gone with the Windfall

You just inherited $1,000,000 from an aunt you didn’t even know existed. What’s the first thing you buy (or otherwise use the money for)?
So much money !
Just multiply it with 59.17to convert it to Indian currency.. It’s a huge amount of money.
Just think how many books I can by now.
 I have small needs. I don’t need much except for medicines and monthly expenditure. So much of it will go to help others for I believe that

Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.

Les Brown

I will distribute one-quarter of it among my relatives with a clause that each will invest some amount of it in the charity, whatever they believe in. Otherwise they don’t get it.
Some of it will be distributed among my children and their spouses with the same clause as above.
Actually this clause is to infuse good habit of doing something for underprivileged people.
I truly believe that one must enjoy life but never forget deprived one and share one’s wealth with them.
Remaining one-fourth I will keep for me.
First thing I want to buy is my dream house on the hilltop.
I will settle there with my husband, my lots of pets and people who will help me live there comfortably as this age one do everything on own.
There will still be lot of money left for which I will appoint someone to advise me to invest it wisely.
These are my plans in theory but frankly I don’t know what I’ll do if I will lay my hands on such a huge amount. I hope I will not go mad with the news itself.

Things we take for granted 

The alarming rate at which the RK Beach, Visakhapatnam is vanishing due to rapid erosion, is threatening to wash out the Union tourism minister K Chiranjeevi’s ambitious Rs 48 crore Bheemili-Visakhapatnam Beach Corridor project which has in any case been facing flak for trying to damage the delicate coastal ecology in the name of garish development.( click for full report.)
