తెంగ్లీష్ భాష గురించి విన్నారా ఎప్పుడైనా?

మీరు తెలుగు భాష గురించి వినుంటారు, ఇంగ్లీష్ భాష గురించి వినుంటారు కానీ తెంగ్లీష్ భాష గురించి విన్నారా?  వినే ఉంటారు. ఎందుకంటే ఇప్పుడు అందరు తెలుగు బదులు అదే ఎక్కువ వాడుతున్నారు కాబట్టి. తెంగ్లీష్ బాషా ఎలా మాట్లాడాలి అంటారా? ఏమి లేదండి ఒక ఆంగ్ల పదం తీసుకొని దానికి కాస్త తెలుగుతనం ఇచ్చామనుకోండి అది తెంగ్లీష్ పదం అయిపోతుంది. ఈ భాష గురించి నా అభిప్రాయం తెలుసుకోవాలని ఉందా? అయితే momspresso లో నేను వ్రాసింది చదవండి :

ఆత్మ సంతృప్తి

There is a saying in Telugu which goes "manava seve madhava seva" which means if you serve mankind it is equivalent to serving god. I wrote a Telugu short story on those lines with a little bit of humor attached to it. I published it in momspresso so please click on the link below to read the story.


Hope you like my attempt at writing stories. Please leave a feedback for me so I can improve.

Bullying vs leadership

Bullying is a very serious issue in schools these days. Kids don't know even know they are turning into bullies because they are never corrected. Parents often ignore this quality in their children thinking that it is just a phase which will go away. But if this is not corrected then this bullying will continue to college and offices too.

Parents who brag too much

As parents we get carried away sometimes when we are talking about children and we start bragging.

Marraige is not the solution to all problems

This is my telugu post in Momspresso about how Indian parents sometimes think that marriage is the solution to change their spoilt sons. What they don't realize is that they are putting a girl's life is at stake in this gamble. Clink on the link to read more about my opinion on this topic:

What should shape our identity?

The other website that I write blogs on, has started a campaign where moms are asked to define their identity. Some bloggers wrote that their profession is their identity. Some wrote how their identity changed from a daughter to a wife to a mom. Some wrote that their gender is their identity. I didn't contribute there yet. But that topic created so many questions in my mind like why are there so many layers to our identities? What actually shapes our identity? Which layer will we use most often to identify ourselves? Why our name is just not enough to identify ourselves? These questions motivated me to think/research/write my views on the concept of identity.

Generally when we introduce ourselves to someone by saying our name, most of the times, some of these questions will be asked after that:

What is your ethnicity?
Which country are you from?
Which part of India?
Where in south?
Which city/town from Andhra?
What is your religion?
What is your caste?
What is your sub caste?
What is your education?
Do you work?
How much do you earn?
Are you single or married?
What is your social status?
etc etc

See, just like an onion, we have so many layers to our identity. Based on our answers we will be categorized and moved to a group where we will find people who have more things in common with us. This way so many groups will be created and one group will look down upon the other because they cannot identify themselves with the others. Our identity will decide how we are going to experience life. For example how we will be treated, who will be our friends etc is all based on which group you belong to.

So is it good to have so many layers?May be. If we all have same identities then it gets boring. Variety is always good. The problem comes when this variety leads to racism, discrimination and oppression. This happens because we are clueless about anyone who looks or behaves different from us. We don't ask questions but just make assumptions and try to separate people. Instead why don't we accept our differences, strive to learn about others and make this world a peaceful place to live.

All these layers are our external identities which are decided by how others perceive us. Sometimes we don't have any control on those identities. For example we cannot control where we will be born, who we will be born to, which religion we will be born into etc and some of these identities can also be subjected to change. For example I can go from a richest person to a pauper or from an atheist to a theist etc. Unfortunately our self worth is decided by these external identities and I feel that is not correct. There is one more identity beneath all these layers and that is our self identity or internal identity.

 Now what shapes our internal identity? Our actions, our emotional strength and our ideologies will shape that. This is what should matter to our identity. We want people to remember us for our good deeds even when we are not here. May be that is the reason why people still remember Mother Theresa because she was so kindhearted and dedicated her whole life in serving people.

To conclude, our identity should be shaped by our personal values and qualities and we all should work on improving those to create a meaningful and purposeful life.

Of course we cannot ignore the external factors because we need some of those for survival but let us not stress so much on something that can be subjected to change.
