I have a confession to make..

Few days ago, I returned from Office to find my Shared room locked with a different lock than the usual. And, I did not have the key to unlock it. This happened, when I was already exhausted with 2 hours of sleep the previous night, then 6 hours of travel in the morning and then, a full day in Office.
My first reaction: Panic. OMG!! I have to stay outside the room in this hot weather. Will have to wait helplessly until my roommate arrives with the key. What am I gonna do!!
The Second reaction: Anger. How could you do this to me? Didn’t you know that, I might reach the room before you do. And in that case, I will have to wait outside. Poor me 😦
The Third reaction: A general negative impression about the world. About how inconsiderate the people are. And, what shall I do next.
Although this reaction, gave way to more clarity about what action needs to be taken. As I was pondering over these thoughts, I went upstairs to see if by any chance, my roommate had given the key to our House help to hand over to me. And then, I got a call from her, finally. On the call, I went on: blah blah blah. She asked me to calm down and listen to her.:D She told me where she hid the key. Awwww. She had strategically placed it away from direct limelight and I would know where to look for the key on contacting her.
This incident made me think, how quickly do we jump to negative conclusions. If only, we could pause to think clearly about the next course of action. Why do we always think negative about others? Obviously, my first assumption was wrong. She was not inconsiderate as I made her out to be in my mind. Instead, she was concerned to have thought about where to place the key for me. People are generally good. It’s our own negative lens, which makes us think otherwise.
Staying calm in stressful situations and giving people our benefit of doubt is the lesson I would take from this slice from my Life.

Keep Smiling and Stay Inspired 🙂

I Feel Trapped..



Let me spread my wings,

Let me feel the freedom it brings,

This cage makes me want to scream out loud,

Your orders for me I want to flout,

Let me fly,

I feel trapped..

Why Am I Here

Hello everyone, I am Pushpinder from India. I am a Software Engineer by Profession and want to explore my writing abilities. I love reading whatever I could lay my hands on. This love for reading gave way to the desire of writing a book. So, this blog is an endeavor in seeing that dream come true one day. For which, I want to develop the writing habit which otherwise gets sidelined when a full-time job has to be taken care of along with it.

I am a Positive person by nature, and want my writings to reflect that. I feel inspirations are available everywhere around us, if only we would pause to see. Our lives and the people we interact with can teach us alot. There is something or the other to learn from even small incidents which happen to us.

Slices from Life, I promise would bring you such incidents or the things I feel passionate about or the lessons i learn on my life’s journey. I want each one of you who read my posts to leave this blog feeling inspired and content in their lives.

Thanks for stopping by.
