Blessing in Disguise

Hello Dear, I am back sorry for the delay. Life some times takes uneven turns, some drive safely but some stumble on their way. But what life would be without these expeditions? We need little jerks in our lives as it makes our belief more stronger on God.
OMG (this what I learnt from FB) I am getting too philosophical, thanks to unlimited hours of load shedding you tend to become philosopher, thinker, intellectual and all those persons which you never imagined you would be !
If we all think positively its high time that we should salute and appreciate our forefathers. Why can't we live them? Come on!!! there was no electricity, life was so simple "Early to bed and early to rise".
This used to be the motto of our elders. This is required these days. Why can't we follow this routine? We can go to our respective jobs two hour early for instance office should start at 7 am instead of 9am in the same way pack time should be 3pm instead of 5pm!! Working parents can spend more time with their families plus they will have plenty of time for outdoor activities. They can leave their congested houses as there is plenty of load shedding and can enjoy nature!! Trust me friends we can save electricity in this way. Early super and dinner and off to bed! Wedding and shopping malls, markets timing can be replaced in the same way. Infact 10pm is the dead line for the marriage halls and hotels and fine of 5 lakh is enough to make people punctual.
Guys don't give fatwa or prize money on my head BUT load shedding is blessing in some way IF we take it positively! Admit it, our kids our glued to TV, PSPs, computers etc and it is so difficult to control them in fact it is non ending war with them! Let us make a deal with them. If we are able to fix timing on all their electronic gadgets plus they should be encouraged to play indoor games like monopoly, scrabble, lodoo, playing cards etc, kids will sleep early and with unstoppable load shedding kids will spent less time on these games…Pretty smart huh!! I know even you are smiling…
We have to set examples in front of them so that our kids could follow them blindly. I know it is difficult to live without TV and computers but at least we can try. Only if we follow the rule of "Early to bed and…".
Take care until next time…
