'AS YOU SOW ,SO SHALL YOU REAP'



 Linked to abc wednesday
There is a need to stop and ponder over the generosity of nature in making our lives worth living.


'S' is for SOW as used in the above saying which is universally acclaimed for its significance over many millennia.

As i contemplate over the profundity of these words, an appraisal of my own journey of life, comes to the fore. Whether as a college teacher i was able to sow seeds of kindness, through encouraging  words, good counseling, sympathetic  attitude, character building and discipline. Was  i able to imbibe enduring qualities of head and heart which had the potential of making  the students  lead a fulfilling and purposeful life. Looking back i can certainly assert that i tried sincerely and there were good results too. 
Harmony, patience, positive orientation, charity, selflessness, sum up the basic principles of the  concept of 'service before self'.

Trying to create harmony in whatever role we play in life is of utmost importance.This healthy approach leads to  happiness, positive vibes and greater  productivity. Discord on the other hand is counter productive. It expends energy and causes hordes of problems and tensions.

As parents we should inculcate the importance of being doers of good actions among our children. Success and joy flow in life, even in small gestures of goodwill.

Sowing seeds of love, forgiveness, imparting education to the needy, sharing grief, showing compassion and offering help in adversity is like reaping the harvest of wellness and cheer. 

Nature in all its avatars is an inspiring example of benevolence and magnanimity. 

At the end of the day it is a good idea to self audit the activities of the day and learn lessons for the future.


 “Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
Robert Louis Stevenson
