FLYING HOPES

WORD POWER

“You can do it.”, “It happens…don’t worry…everything will be alright”, “Sab thik ho jayega.”,Lagey raho” ,and so on….
All these phrases are not mere words, they reflect some energy and enthusiasm if said by the right person at the right time. I believe that our regular small worries are also more or less related to the “said” or “unsaid” words by our family, friend, boss or colleague.
These words have so much power that even kids get affected by them. They make a huge impact on them too..
I would like to share this incident… Once my little daughter fell down while playing and had scratches on both of her knees.
She came crying to me.. I did the needful and as it was one of those regular stuff which happens to kids..I was back to my work.
She came to me again (still crying) and said “aap bolo ye thik ho jayega.” (“you have to say that it will be alright”)..I was surprised that more than anything else she wanted to hear those words from me!! She needed words from me with the ointment!!
One more incident- My daughter gets ‘good’ in her maths notebook quite frequently but she is desperate to get it in her history notebook. Her history teacher is reluctant to use that word, so one ‘good’ in history notebook gives her more pleasure than several of them in maths..
It happens to us adults too..as in my case.. I get appreciation for my cooking almost everyday from my father in law who is kind enough to say “ achcha khana banaya hai”.
But those words give me more pleasure when my husband says so…once in a blue moon!
(Don’t get it wrong!! I do cook well everyday!)

And thanks to the kind words of kind people (whom I know only by their words!), I am at ‘blogs’, well and writing!!

So ‘words’ can make us happy or sad, they can encourage us to do well in our lives!! We have plenty of examples when we hear from successful people that some ‘words’ from some people changed their lives for ever!

But at times our mind is occupied with prejudice and it refuses to think otherwise..that time words don’t impress us much…even wise quotes have no impact ..here are some examples (with due respect to ‘quote’ writers)….

“God is everywhere, He can see all,He has all the powers.”
*Then what he is doing when the innocent people are being killed brutally all over the world? *

“Create an idealized image of yourself and try to resemble it.”
*But ideal things are not suppose to be achieved by human beings!*

“Practice what you preach.”
*Preachers do nothing..they only practice to preach.*

“You are as old as you think!”
*This phrase is used only by 40 something people!*

“Money is not everything.”
*Ask the son whose mother died of illness because he had no money to afford a specialist doctor for her.*


"Reality bites!"
* And honesty beats!!*

Enough of my words…now it’s your turn!!!

    it is absolutely true that words make an impact in each and everyones life. we donot know who we are chatting with, yet it makes us feel great,just because of their kind words or encouraging thoughts.

  • Good post !! True !! The same experience with cooking. I love cooking and a simple word of appreciation from my husband matters to me more than a silk saree ;-).

    Sometimes, when there is some problem in the house and everyone hold me responsible for no fault of mine, I just want to hear " I know you did ur best" or " Forget it" from him. Simple words but does a lot of magic !!

  • hi Rachna,
    I saw your blog just by chance while surfing on the net, although I am a hindi blogger, but the title WORD POWER has attracted me, It was amazing the way you have discribed both , the magic of good words and when words fail, both.
    Being a Hindi poetess, i could say,

    BAHUT TAQAT HOTI HAI HAR OOS LAFZ MEY,
    JO DIL KI BAAT TAH-E-DIL TAK KEH JAAYE,

    BAHUT NAZAAKQT BHI BHI HOTI HAI HAR OOS LAFZ MEY
    JO ANDAZON KO, ADAA KEH KAR SAMJHAAYE,

    YE LAFZON KI HI TAAQAT KAA KHEL HAI,
    KI KISEE BEGAANEY KO BHI APNAA BANAA JAAYE.

    Rachana, you write really good, best wishes.
    Renu.
