A program on ‘All is Well-Despite you Fail”’ by Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO- Mumbai) is going to be held on 28th Jan 2010 to address the recent suicide tragedies happened in India. This program will be addressed by prominent psychiatrics and many other academicians will share their views on the root cause of these suicides and the ways & means to stop them.
“Year 2010 started with a very bad note for student community in Mumbai with a catastrophe of 33 suicides in the month of Jan due to stress or social (family) pressure”, Mohd Abdul Qadeer (SIO Mumbai President) moaned.
“Killing self is totally against the basic objective of education itself. The recent 33 suicides in one India is really alarm for the every student, parent and everyone. How come a small innocent 10 year old girl can hang herself? What’s the actual root cause for such a drastic step of ending their beautiful lives? If you score above 90’s then only you are successful. If you pass the some ABC exam then you are wonderful. If you get into some of elite institutes (like IITs) then only you are successful. If you score more than Mr. Gupta’s son or daughter then only your parents will be in heaven. Having 6 digit salary or having branded cloths, cars, etc are the symbols of success? Who taught such kind of thinking to us? Is there any problem in our education system which made up to think this? This is million dollar question we need to answer”, added Abdul Qadeer.
“None other than materialistic approach towards life is behind this. People check the success of an individual against percentages or percentiles or entry to some of the elite institutes or so-called reality shows or 5-6 digit salaries. If one part of machine fails then whole machine fails. Are our children are like some kind of machines working for their teachers, parents to get the best percentages? This show-off and materialistic attitude is forcing our innocent boys and girls to loose their innocence and burden of competition in school or college, show-off expectations of the parents forcing them to take the drastic step of ending their lives” He explained.
“We can understand if a grown up man does a suicide as he has some kind of thought process. But what about these buds which were busted before blooming? Isn’t our value system, education system or parents or teachers actual murderer of these buds?” questioned Abdul Qadeer.
“Almighty Allah has created this beautiful universe and the human beings are the symbols of His excellence. It’s prohibited to do suicide in Islam as an individual should totally believe in the Almighty and seek his guidance and help whenever there is any problem in and around his life. Prophet Mohammed said “Don’t kill yourself” and even “Don’t say ‘Oh God, kill me’ when you are totally hopeless. Pray to almighty “Provide me better way to get out of this trouble”.
“We should ponder over the present education system of creating “skilled knowledge workers” and try to change to create human-beings. This program will provide that opportunity. So, please be part of it and understand the intensity of the situation so that we can keep the flame of life burning in the many more innocent lives” Abdul Qadeer urged.

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
