Woman, her career & other things.

As an adult child of the early-mid '20s(not supposed to know on which group I'm more suitable), I almost can feel the pressure on the air. And it's definitely greater than the regular atmospheric pressure. In our genre, a woman( sometimes a girl) has to be either of these two types - one is the brilliant star kid who always comes first (because she has to be way ahead of Sharma Ji ki ladki) in the class or the other homely type who has specialized in household works (or more precisely the winner and the looser). sometimes these two types get overlapped in people's expectations(for better!!)

Turned out to be one of the best purchases of my life. No, I'm not here for imparting wisdom. I have perceived the 5 life lessons practised by Japanese people, especially by the centenarians living in Okinawa island. Here, without any further ado, let's dive into directly, what I've learnt so far, and what we should all be practising, even a little bit. Wabi-Sabi (侘寂): The Beauty of Imperfection This specific concept is entirely based on the imperfections of things, and the beauty lies with it. It tells us about the impermanence and everchanging nature of life. Thus, people living in Japan emphasize placing value to even the smallest of things, imperfect th
