100 word fiction: The rise..

100 word fiction

“You need to have the courage to follow your dreams and climb the steps to your goal. You can crib all day long about what you don’t have. Or instead, you can pursue your dream and live life on your own terms. It’s your choice.”

In a country without a history of fencing, Malti had carved out a niche for herself by winning numerous tournaments. And now, she had to move out of India for a few years to train and realize her dream of representing the country.

She knew that it was time to take the leap of faith.

Microblog Mondays: The spirit of Neerja Bhanot

I can’t really get over the experience of watching the Bollywood flick – ‘Neerja‘. It’s the story of Neerja Bhanot, a 22 year old senior flight purser who died but not until she had saved more than 340 lives when 4 terrorists hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi way back in 1986.

Though she was young, she taught all of us so much about humanity and love that even the oldies could have learnt a lesson or two. The courage and thinking which she displayed in the time of despair was unmatched.

Rather than differentiating passengers based on their caste, creed, religion, region, gender and so on, she went all out to save each and everyone. It was as though even fear got scared looking her in the eye. She could have been the first one to escape but instead chose to stay on until every passenger had been evacuated safely.

While she was awarded by India, Pakistan and USA, her legacy lives on with the Neerja Bhanot Award which is given to a woman who has fought injustice in society with determination.

We love to lie for anything and everything in our lives, don’t we? From simple lies which may not harm people to those which could actually be detrimental to individuals, lying has become part and parcel of our lives. But why do we lie? Why is it so difficult to be true to people around?

One of the primary reasons is fear. Fear from our parents, extended family, friends, peers and more. We fear on the way they would react hearing the truth. We fear having to bear the consequences of being true to the situation. Moreover, a lot of us lack the courage and the will-power to be able to handle the effects of telling the truth to people.

Why do we run away from challenges?

According to Wikipedia, ” A challenge is a general term referring to things that are imbued with a sense of difficulty and victory.” Challenges require courage, skill, presence of mind, ability to think on the spot and many more such qualities. Are people running away because they don’t have them? Are people scared to face challenges? Do people want to always take the easy path? Lets see.

A challenge could be man made or some event which may have conspired to create a particular issue as a challenge for someone. A lot many of us are ready to face challenges head-on.
