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.

DP Daily Prompt: Freedom Of Facebook Posted By Ranu

I do not know anything about facebook. Freedom is a word I believe can be misused. Facebook has come under attack? I’m glad the users or non users are taking steps to have some guidelines. I don’t think it’s  a place for hate speech or violent imagery. Having guidelines can help all those who use this to talk about themselves. It’s perfectly all right,but when it is used for a negative purpose,it should be controlled.

I sometimes see comments made by people when they watch YouTube distasteful to say the least.If users are not comfortable to watch,read whatever the case maybe,the best thing is to move on.There is no need to use swear words,it shows disrespect and also doesn’t say much about the person who is doing it.
