Feel of Joy- Small actions can bring!

Sometimes small actions can bring big difference in someone’s life, belonging to any religion, cast or life standard. One action of bliss can fetch a full bucket of happiness and love for each other. It helps in building the bridges  of harmony and peace among  people, and we feel pretty much equal as Human beings. Few days back I’ve come by such an experience which was quite ordinary but turned out into an extraordinary feeling of joy for me. Let me share my little story of bliss 😀 Few days back, as of my daily routine, I was buying some snacks and drinks from a general store nearby my house. A slum kid stood beside me, and kept on watching me buying variety of snacks. It seemed like he badly wants one of them. I was intrigued to ask the kid if he had any problem. He didn’t answer but gave a shy look. I asked again politely, he said my mum didn’t offered me food the whole day and I’m very hungry. His innocence caught my attention me and I gave him some snacks and bought him some candies. The kid smiled and his face bloomed like he got everything that he had wished. His emotions made me feel like I’ve provided him with the best moments he ever had in his life. The boy thanked and departed but left me with greatest feeling of joy. It felt amazing to make someone. It releases frustrations and anxieties aswell 😀 That day I learned the fact that sometimes ordinary things are also so special for someone. We didn’t expect that action to turn out worthy because it doesn’t affect us. But it do leave a great impact on other’s life. Like all I did is just bought some snacks to a kid, which was nothing for me but the kid reacted like he had the best meal of his life. I believe that in these tough times, we should spread happiness by making people smile around us, like I did :D. It wont be worthy but the feeling of joy you’ll left with, will last forever in your heart, and that little action of bliss will touch the soul of whom you’ve helped.

I know this little story of bliss may not seem special to many of you but it was very special for me because it thought me that when we help others, we actually help ourselves, by getting rid of  frustrations and tensions we’re dealing daily by being selfish. The reason for sharing this story is to uplift the spirit the socialism and harmony of my readers. Today we’re being encircled by the most complex problems, we actually created them ourselves by thinking about our personal benefits and not of others. If one small action can bring a smile of hope then why millions of us can’t bring hope and happiness? why we’re being wrapped up in oneself? Some of questions driving us back. We should think that we all are equal in-terms of rights and purpose. We must change ORDINARY into EXTRAORDINARY.

Human Rights Day- What actually Human rights are?

Standard

The basic rights we posses

On 10 December 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed “the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. The theme of this year is ‘Celebrate Human Rights’ against abuse and violations of human values. Human rights provide a foundation for building a just and peaceful world. Every human being on the planet has the right to dignity, respect, and freedom – whatever their race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, wealth or other status. Its celebrated in Pakistan and all around the world.

When different people around the world being asked “What Human Rights Are?”. They find this question extremely difficult. Some say its a freedom of religion, the right to live, we all are equal. Human Rights are the rights you have simply because your human. Its how you instinctively expect and deserve to be treated as person. Its like the rights to live freely, to speak your mind and to be treated as an equal. There are many kinds of rights, most applied to a certain group, but Human rights are the only one’s that are absolutely applied to everyone, everywhere. That means men, women, kids, old people, poor people, sportsmen, singers, dancers, teachers, Europeans, Asians, Africans, Jews, Christians, Muslims, you mom and dad, your neighbour next door and at-last you yourself. All have the exact same rights, they are called Universal. But the questions stands “What are human rights?”

According to UN( United Nations) there are 30 human rights. They all are listed in “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights” which is the world most widely accepted document on the subject. But it took long time to reform. From “Cyrus the Great” till “Mahatma Gandhi” many battles and treaties took place among the Greeks, Indians, Romans, English, Americans, French. After all these years of struggle finally in 1945, the Nations of the world bonded and formed United Nations. Their basic purpose was “To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the and worth of a human person”. The French concept of “Natural rights” finally became human rights later on.

Under the Supervision of Ellenor Roswell, all the nations finally agreed to set of rights that are applicable to everyone “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights”, and they all lived happily ever after, except one little problem. If people have the right to food and shelter, then why 16 thousand people are dying daily due to starvation. If they have the right to speech, why are thousands are in prisons for speaking their minds out. If they have they right of education, why billions are unable to study. If slavery is completely finished, then why millions are still slaves. The fact is that when  “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights” was signed, the law was optional. Its worth was just the words on page. But the question is who will make these words a reality.

Those who today fighting against torture, poverty and discrimination and not giants and superheroes  “they are people”, who refused to be silent, who realized that human rights are not history lessons, commercials, words on page or speeches. They are the choices that we make daily as Human beings, they are the responsibilies we all share, to respect each other, to help each other, and to protect those in need. We all are equal and born for the same purpose. Share the love and happiness around…..Peace !
