How to Make Friends While Traveling Abroad

When anyone travels abroad OR any place within their surroundings they tend to come across many different types of people, be it different religion, hence here you are exposed to their culture, experience and stories. Making friends abroad is very difficult because we come from another country.

THERE ARE SOME TIPS WHERE ONE CAN FOLLOW IT.

Before going to a new place find out from your friends, relative and ex-colleague whether they know anybody living at that place. If at all they know then get in touch with them, meet up for a coffee or a drink and have a chat.

Making new friends  when you move is a bit like dating. You have to go out of your way try and form a connection with new people.

You have already something in common with other travellers. The fact that you’re travelling it is obvious the question asked by the opposite party iswhere have you been? Where are you from?

Introduce yourself to your neighbour see who has the similar lifestyle, kids of similar age, similar professional background.  Find out about the local habits from your neighbours.

‘I’dentity

‘I’dentity
Shahjahan R
(An unfinished article written about 8-9 years back.)
It is now thirteen years since I moved to Delhi as one among the ten million. A question which haunted me in the early 1991, still continues to haunt me - who am ‘I’ and why ‘I’ should be identified by my name.
Born and brought up in Tamil Nadu in secular circumstances, I was unaware about the religious discrimination that prevailed in the north. Since our childhood we, in Tamil Nadu, were never taught to identify people by their religion or caste or status. Hindus will line up before the Masjid in the evenings of the Ramzan month to receive the ‘nonbu kanji’ (a special gruel prepared for those who break fast). Masjid is located in front of a public ground where Hindu celebrations during Pongal used to take place. We were not even aware about the term ‘communal harmony’. There was no need for such a term.
The first incident happened when I had to vacate the rented accommodation within a month of occupation, because the house-owner came to know that ‘I’am a ‘Mohammaden’ (as he referred to ‘Muslim’). The second incident was similar to the earlier one. After showing a two-room-set at Faiz Road, Karol Bagh, the house owner - a Doctor by profession - offered snacks and tea and we had a friendly chat. That gentleman was impressed by this ‘young south Indian’ and was glad to rent his house to a person who has some morals and values. But, here again came my ‘I’dentity. After finalising everything, he came to know that I was a ‘Muslim’ and he politely apologised for his inability, since it was their family decision not to rent their house to Muslims. Here ‘I’ was identified as a ‘Muslim’.

Waiting ....!

Everything is waiting in the world
Day is waiting for the night to fall
Night is waiting for the day to raise
But time never waits
A few are waiting for chances to come
Many are waiting for their fortune to be delivered
I don't mind waiting to see people
I hate to keep people waiting for me

Weight of the Human Soul is 21 grams

Experiment to Prove Human Soul has Mass – Can be Measured

A rare experiment had been conducted on April 10, 1901 in Dorchester, Massachusetts by Dr Duncan MacDougall to prove that the human soul had mass and hence could be measured. Dr MacDougall a respected physician of Haverhill as well as the head of the Research Society had been performing work in this field for around six years before the experiment.

 Though his experiment presently would be taken as unethical, it tends to be a peculiarity with plenty of disapproval ranging from methodology utilised in different religious implication. Dr MacDougall performed this experiment on six dying patients who had been placed on specially provided Fairbanks weight scales just before their death. His purpose was to weigh each body before and after death in order to determine any differences by the delicate scales.

The patients had been selected depending of their looming death. Two of the patients had been suffering from tuberculosis, one was a woman and 5 were men. Together with a team of four doctors, Dr MacDougall measured the weight of his first patient cautiously before his death. When the patient died he noticed an interesting thing. He observed that suddenly, coincident with death, the beam end dropped with an audible stroke hitting against the lower limiting bar and remaining there with no rebound.

Clear the Confusion....!

My feelings are only with me
I can't feel for what other do
But everyone has feelings
Not able to feel the feeling of others
Everyone is in his own little kingdom
Hiding in their old rock castle mind
Each step takes deep in the dungeon
Its full of darkness and no light
Full of old wines and warm dines

The Woman with Wooden Sandals

The Woman with Wooden Sandals

“The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) delivered a lengthy sermon one day covering the affairs of the world and the Hereafter. He also said: ‘Surely, the first thing that destroyed the Bani Israil were the poor and needy women who went to great lengths for their clothes and colours. They wore colourful clothes which only the wealthy women could afford.’ He then mentioned one woman of the Bani Israil who was short-statured. She got for herself wooden sandals to conceal her height and got made for herself a ring with an opening which was locked from the top. She filled it with musk. She then walked with tall or fat women. The people sent a man behind them and he recognized the tall women but not the one with wooden sandals.” [Sahih Muslim]

O my Creator....!

Until I realize 
That I can do
What I am blessed!
All the impossible
Become possible 
Why am I so ignorant!
That I am blessed 
With all the capabilities
You have bestowed!
