Teresa, Mother Teresa is for T of atozchallenge
When I was at middle school, the non-detailed studies were mandated as part of English language courses – looking back, i realize how it helped me a lot to get a glimpse of wide world than I could imagine – Mother Teresa’s stories was one of the non-detailed study as part of my curriculum in middle school – while there is no real grades attached to non-detailed studies, my dad was encouraging us to read them during the summer vacation even before the school started. In the era of no internet, books were the best bet to entertain us during vacations.
That is how i read about Mother Teresa and then started dreaming that I may also get enlightened one day like her if i continue to do the good deeds she recommends – ok, that is a cliche!! but that is what i thought when I was in middle school – I was obsessing on being a good soul and fancying secretly the greatness of being a christian missionary nun – I anyways already had a great impression about the christian nuns in their pure white habits – this is a result of going to a Christian convent for my junior school. Ofcourse, later when i read more about multiple religions, this fancy fad faded when I realized every religion is a framework with its own styles helping the humanity to attain the final goal of self realization!
So, here goes my memory on one of the greatest soul who was of an Albanian descendant but made a sea change to the people of India and then the world. More about Mother in the below links
L is for Love in atozchallenge.
GOD is LOVE / LOVE is GOD
This is the eternal truth preached by all religions and cultures across the world. So, when you get disillusioned about the way the world is going inhumane, we start looking for the reaffirmations through facts/data.
The recent one which I happened to come across was the Rice experiment conducted by onlysuccess team.
Some of the beautiful quotes of Mother Teresa on Love ….
Let me declare that am still a novice on fashion and I continue to work on the mission to better my wardrobe …..!!So, what I am jotting down here are the three basic principles of smart dressing which work in IT industry in India (ideally, it should work globally for other industries also?)
Here goes the three basic principles of smart dressing
• What is the IMAGE you want to project about yourself in your official environment? Mostly, it goes with your value systems is my observation. For me, it is DIGNITY • Dress for your next desk! – Just means that you got to dress for the highest role you are aspiring to reach in your career! If you plan to be the CEO, think how a CEO will dress! • Think what dress you are comfortable with – when you go shopping remember the advice from Sandra Bullock in ‘The blind side’ – “before you choose something, ask yourself IS THIS ME?”
Once you have firmed up the above three, then you are already smartly dressed. While there are many opinions on “how deep the neckline can be ? “to what is the right perfume to wear at work, I strongly feel if you are clear on the above three, you can carry yourself well!
Some of the women who have mastered these are – Priyanka Gandhi (Politics), Indira Nooyi (Business), Bipasha Basu (Entertainment), Mother Theresa (Social), Arundathi Roy (Arts), Sania Mirza (Sports) and Kamala Selvaraj (Medicine)……..
