Sir Muhammad Iqbal

There are quite a few things happened in my life,which I can  say are ugly or distasteful .I find solace in thinking,maybe something good will come out of it.

I spent days and months watching hideous shows.I did not learn anything from them,I only wondered why do they waste their time creating something that is teaching nothing good but everything ugly and repulsive.All these I watched on YouTube. Suddenly I saw an actor, singing a song,I loved the tune,I continued to watch it. I wanted to know who he was, I read about him and my interest in this person, led me to another famous personality,his name is Allama Mohammad Iqbal, I was able to get all the information about him through the internet. It is a tool where  you can get a lot of good and bad things.It depends on our preference. I took online courses offered through Iqbal Academy.I was delighted I was learning something useful. My time was used wisely.

I no longer watch shows to pass my time. I am actually gaining knowledge I didn’t have. From online courses I added blogging in my list.I’m having a whale of a time.I read posts by other bloggers,I get recipes posted by them,gorgeous photographs by bloggers and a whole bunch of things.Everyday I learn something new from WordPress and from bloggers. I can definitely see the silver linings now more than ever. The encouraging comments from bloggers  helps  me to keep on writing.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post.

    Yes, I agree…youtube, facebook, etc., can be time-sinks which waste away our precious life. And yet, as you point out, there is value on the internet, such as the online courses in which you and I and others participate. And then there is the beauty that manifests into this world through such things as your Sabethville blog :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert
