Missing Misha Mags....


While remembering my childhood, the first thing that appears my mind is my meek appearance with red ribbons tied on my oil-soaked black hair, a white shirt and a blue skirt as school uniform with black ballerinas. A pink birthday dress was my dream but no one gifted me that.

However, I was blessed with this excellent hobby of reading books and possessed several books and magazines. One of those gifted books was 'Misha', a 30-35 page little magazine with colorful illustrations and fascinating stories. from folk stories to sci-fis, Misha was a book full of dreams. In those days, we couldn't think of owning a book like Misha, with glossy pages and captivating language. Misha was perhaps the most favorite mag among the children across the globe in 1980s.
Few days back, I found this blog where I got few old editions of Misha. The blog link is provided below-

Leadership: A step further to the way of success


"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

_John C. Maxwell

Leading a group is a tough task to do. Not everyone has the inborn quality of leadership. However, one can develop it gradually with the relevant knowledge and experience in the field. A thorough understanding of the needs of a group can be counted as the primary virtue of a leader. Most of the times, the leadership quality is misunderstood by the people. People think leadership quality means subtly dominance, arrogance or class-distinction. The negative notion of leadership, as explained by various people, is developed by the experiences derived by various society structures & cultures. People think that the leaders need not to do anything and a mare order is all they have to do, while enjoying the power & position of the post. However, a true leader has plenty of responsibilities & jobs to be executed.

Leaders are born, not made.

Many leaders in the world’s history were born, as if they knew leading people right from their cradle. Narendranath Dutta had the leadership qualities from his very childhood which made him lead the world with his ideas and Principles as Swami Vivekananda. He was not only a brilliant scholar, but a genius leader who showed the world the path of unity & brotherhood, and a great religious & social reformer of India. The principles & ideas of Swami Vivekananda were deeply influenced by the vast knowledge he had gathered and the obvious intelligence he had. The further guidance of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa helped him to nurture his leadership skills.

Being a leader, one has to sacrifice a lot. Many a times, it can be family, friends, etc. A true leader dedicates himself for the community wellbeing and not his own. However, for few leaders-“Policies are many, principles are few, policies will change, principles never do.”

Back to My Soil

I always wanted to establish myself as a writer and a painter. Writing was (and perhaps..is) my passion. I always feel that writing, dancing, painting, etc. is a form of expression...of your inner feelings..your pains..your happiness. While you write,write for yourself. While you draw, draw any damn thing to make yourself happy. While you dance, release yourself and enjoy the moment. Do anything and everything you like to do,not to please others...but 'YOU'. It's been long I have not written a single word in my blog. Why?It's just because I was not in a very sane mental state for a while,and thought what will I write.

However,I am back to my blog and have decided to write..as I found this space can act as the best stress-buster for me. I will write for myself. Of course, I welcome all the readers and fellow bloggers who have helped me with their valuable suggestions to comment on whatever I write and motivate me.
