Blessed Marriage

Thursday, May 29th, 2014


Recently I wrote an article Marriage- a boon or bane. I realised through the comments I received, that I needed to touch upon more, on issues for those who are already married and are seeking to make it wonderful, or are either struggling or compromising in their marriage. This piece is for those who are peaceful about their decision to stay in their current marriage and are looking for ways and means to lead a happy married life. <aref=”″>

Attitude Is The Key To Life

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

imagesOur attitude towards life determines life’s attitude toward us, said Earl Nightingale. In life most of us usually do not grasp this simple concept – it is not other person’s action or reaction or the situation that determines our attitude. It is entirely our own personal choice. Over a period of time I discovered some of my own attitudes, and also those of other people that I am sharing here. How do we identify such attitudes in us and how do we adjust them for a fruitful life, is my humble attempt.

Our attitude can become a stumbling block

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

So many times I’ve noticed that God wants to help a particular person but because of their attitude they deride themselves from being blessed. Out of many experiences there is a very recent one when God used me to bless someone, but because of their attitude they were not able to receive what God had planned for them.

Our Foundation supports a PID patient, so we decided to support more of such patients as the mode of treatment is expensive, and even a rich person can get bogged down by the cost of treatment. There was one such child patient. So I called up and informed his parents that our foundation was interested in partial funding of their son’s medication. Though I had come to know that the father of the child had an attitude of hoarding medicine packs, I decided to give it a shot. There were some pre-requisites to be completed before we could start helping this child so I asked the father to send his child’s medical papers before we could start the medical donation. I never received the papers but in between the father asked me for an emergency help for which he lied to me. Since I thought it was the question of a child’s life I somehow managed to provide him medicine at his doorstep. Later I came to know that he had not only wrongly quoted the doctors who were treating his child but also never let me know how his son was keeping. I was shocked and decided to discontinue support from next time.

The next time when the medication was due, patient’s father called me up for the medicine. That is when I confronted him. What I didn’t understand that in spite of my voluntarily helping his child, he lied to me. But this cost him our support. All it could have taken for him was to speak straight and be apologetic about his doing.

So the lesson for us is – if we have gone through some sour situation, rather than blaming someone else for it, it’s time we check on our own attitude and make on purpose effort to change it, for it can become a blockage to receive our own good-Shalini Mehta
