I seem to be bugging perfect strangers (yes, I am talking about you, my blogging friend!) with my constant rants about my first trip outside my country. But I can’t seem to get over the tourist syndrome I feel for Prague. In the picture, there are several beautiful monuments that describe the scenic beauty of Prague City like the Charles Bridge, and the National Theatre. But that’s not what I want to talk about today. I managed to catch up with some very pleasant young women journos on the trip and a young and dynamic Czech lawyer, and I realised that when we look at these buildings as a tourist, they seem more important, and magical. In hindsight, don’t all our problems get solutions when looked at from a neutral stand point? OK, this post is about to get both emotional and philosophical, so you can stop right here if you’re not into that, especially on a photo blog. For the others, thank you for reading on!

I have been in a corporate set up for well over six-and-a-half years, and it has taught me new things about the human mind. While most of it amazes, and at times baffles me, there are times when it shakes me up quite badly. (I am a part of the same eco-system, being a human, right?) Shit happens all the time and mostly it happen to others, but do we really learn from mistakes of another? If you think about it long and hard, you generally get a cautious attitude at the most, but for the learning you need to know why the mistake was made and only then you can fix it. However how many of us reflect and realise our own mistakes? Do we really make an effort to rectify and avoid them, or do we refuse to acknowledge the something went wrong and look for scapegoats to pin the blame, instead?

Guess not all of us use hindsight to our advantage, but what is saddening is how others pay a price for your denial instead. As you guessed its been a professionally and emotionally rough week for me (I write for a living and I am very passionate about my work). While a lot of friendly advice some sympathetic, some brutally honest have come my way, I want a neutral stand point from you. Share your pearls of wisdom with me, I not only appreciate it, but look forward to it with eagerness and enthusiasm. Thanks for your time. Love and peace be with you!
