Life’s Different Experiences

Change is always hard. We all like the status quo. For me, the past couple months have been a different sort of ride — working on various activities as part of the Friends of BJP team. I had not given it much thought when I started off on it — it just seemed an interesting sort of thing to do, and one had to move quickly since it was a “limited-time” opportunity given that elections were due in April-May.

The experience of working with different people in an absolutely new space has been very good. There are lots of things I am learning — about India, about working in groups, about people, and about politics. Change, every once in a while, is good.

Life gives us opportunities to do different things, but many times we let these pass by because we are fearful of the unknown. We don’t know what we don’t know. And so, we stick to the tried and tested routine.

I think it is important – even necessary – for us to put ourselves through different experiences, because that is where learning happens in step functions. Not all of it may be good, but it adds to enriching us in different ways. So, my recommendation: next time there is an opportunity to do or try something different, give it a shot. The joy of learning new things can do wonders for us!

  1. I fully agree with you! The real tough part is pushing yourself to actually try new things. Thinking about doing something new is easy but executing is much tougher.

    Frankreich krise

    Aus Protest gegen geplante Entlassungen haben Arbeiter in Frankreich erneut einen Firmenchef in ihre Gewalt gebracht: Der Leiter eines Werks für Medizinprodukte des US-Konzerns 3M im zentralfranzösischen Pithiviers wurde in der Nacht zum Mittwoch in der Fabrik festgehalten.

    Das teilte die Polizei am Morgen mit. Gewerkschaftsvertreter gaben als Grund die Unzufriedenheit der Beschäftigten mit Abfindungen bei ihrer Entlassung an.

    Die Arbeiter hielten die ganze Nacht lang Wache vor dem Büro des Firmenchefs. “Wir verlangen eine Neuverhandlung der Abfindungen und eine Umzugsprämie”, sagte Gewerkschaftsvertreter Jean-François Caparros. In der Nacht seien darüber Verhandlungen geführt worden, die aber nicht zum Erfolg geführt hätten. Am Vormittag sollten sie wiederaufgenommen werden. “Alle sind sehr motiviert”, sagte Caparros. “Diese Aktion ist unser einziges Druckmittel.” Zu gewalttätigen Auseinandersetzungen sei es nicht gekommen.
