In this week’s episode of the Subhash Chandra Show, Shri Subhash Chandra continues from where he had left the last session on ‘The Concept of Happiness’. The session started with Subhashji interacting with Changemaker 13-year-old Disha Tiwari and her parents on how at such a young age she is making an effort to create a no smoking environment.
Providing valuable insights on ‘Understanding the Concept of Happiness’, Subhashji says, “Happiness will not come to you, it can only come from you. Happiness is a choice, not a result. While we look for happiness from external factors like material objects, relationships, achievements, fame and power, it is actually our reaction and response that creates thoughts of happiness or unhappiness and not the situations themselves. Thus, happiness irrespective of a stimulus or situation is possible, and we need to train ourselves to understand that nothing can make us happy unless we choose to be happy.”
Answering an interesting question about deriving happiness form things such as smoking, Subhashji says, “Everything that gives just pleasure after consuming it again and again and a little more quantity each time definitely has a bad final result. A little alcohol feels good, then you have a little more and some more and eventually it causes problems. Similarly, with excess of sweets or fast-food items.”
On the topic of anger Subhashji says, “Never reply to anyone in anger. Smiling and answering often mitigates the other persons anger too.”
Another motivational speaker on the show present was Shri Ranjeet Singh, Traffic Constable, who is popularly known as the Dancing Cop. Ranjeetji has been part of the Police fraternity for 19 years and was transferred to the traffic control department in 2005. He has been inspiring residents to follow traffic rules and signals just by dancing while controlling traffic since the last 12 years. He moonwalks his way through the traffic.
Speaking about his unique method he says, “To teach, one needs to come up with unique and interesting ideas. Dancing was ingrained in m we which came out in this extra-ordinary way.” He is of the opinion that life should be lived to the fullest.
Subhashji speaks about accepting consequences of ones actions. He says, “If your hard work is 100% the result will also be good. But often if it is not we do not accept an unfavourable outcome. Once you accept the outcome you can recognize what is right and what is wrong.”
