Are you leading a boring life?

It is not me who is asking this question but its was one of the headlines in TOI two days back. Now what do I say. I mean what I like you may find boring and vice versa right. I read scriptural texts. I attend temple programs, I listen to relevant audios. I don’t like watching movies and similarly I hardly have time to read random books or blogs. So am I bore? Maybe for some, for myself I enjoy to the hilt πŸ˜€


We hold an annual one week summer camp in March for kids aged 7-15. I met an acquaintance and told about it. She asked for the course summary, I told her that there will be personality development courses, art & craft, activities and some scriptural studies too.Β  Nothing heavy, small stories etc. Her face changed as if she had smelled rotten potatoes. Maybe she felt, what a bore it is. Once upon a time, I would have been angry at her behavior, now I don’t bother. Who am I to be judgmental.


My parents used to tell us that teaching is a good profession especially for ladies. Which other profession allows you to go along with and return with your kids, isn’t it? We sisters always used to shrug off. Teaching… that is such a bore.

Now my sister is a well know coaching teacher and …..I am on the path of being a teacher preacher πŸ™‚ I take a weekly class for kids in the temple

Many a times the parents of kids come and ask a remedy for problems or ask for some references on texts. And I feel so humbled. I am after all just like them, a student who teaches part-time.

But is it a bore, oh no, not at all, it is a wonderful journey where in we all learn together.

  3. Life is too short to be spent in boredom….So each needs to do what he or she enjoys…But as you rightly pointed out, perceptions and interests vary from person to person and its not fair getting judgemental….And whatever you have said you are doing does not seem to be boring at all to me πŸ˜€

    • That is sweet of you Jaish. But I tell u everyday I meet someone who crinkles his/her nose at what I do πŸ™‚ But then again it is their right to do so πŸ˜€

  4. To each his own.. that’s the funda that one should live with. I agree what is boring to you might be interesting to me and vice-versa πŸ™‚

  5. That’s all that matters at the end of the day, right, Bhagya? Do what each wants and be happy…and trust me, teaching is not an easy job at all..That too with kids. All the more difficult πŸ™‚

    • Oh yes Latha. 15-20 kids of age ranging from 4 to 10, it is difficult to hold the attention of all at the same trying to make the class interesting in an informal setting.
      Thanks Latha
