Tell Me Now What Should I Do?

#Tell me

This is a small write-up in Malayalam appeared today on the pages of Google+ and the notification came in and I found it a worthy note and translated it into the English language under the title ” Tell me now what should I do” This is purely a free translation of the original version. Thanks, Sajith Kumar for this wonderful and thought-provoking piece! Keep writing!

        ചിരിച്ചപ്പോൾ ഭ്രാന്തെന്ന് 
                             കരഞ്ഞപ്പോൾ നാണമില്ലേയെന്ന് 
                    അഭിപ്രായം നടത്തിയപ്പോൾ 
അഹങ്കാരമാണത്രെ 
                    മൗനം പാലിച്ചപ്പോഴല്ലേ രസം 
                     ഒന്നിനും കൊള്ളാത്തതെന്നു 
          ഇനിയെന്താണ് ചെയ്യുക?

When laughed out loud they labeled me mental!

When cried out loud they labeled me shameless!

When commented out loud they labeled me proud!

When silent, they labeled me useless!

Tell me now, what should I do?

 

When silent, they labeled me useless! ... now, what should I do? Click To Tweet

    • Hey Yogesh,
      Nice to see you here again!
      Thanks for your relentless support to this page!
      Yes, I fully agree with you, we should not give much importance to what people say against us!
      but at the same time if it is a constructive one we need to look into it seriously and if required we need to change it too!
      But here in this notes, the allegations are senseless or meaningless!
      Thanks for your valuable insight into this post!
      Keep visiting!
      Keep writing!
      Have a great day

  1. Hi Philip, how very powerful this statement is. It shows just how people can affect us and how they can use our own personalities against us. Shame on them!

    Enjoy the journey!

    Hi Philip

    LOL. This is an interesting quote. It is a reminder that you really cannot satisfy everyone and it is best to be yourself.

    Remember that there will always be critiques no matter what you do.

    Thanks for sharing. Take care

  4. What others say and think is just a reference to make your own decision and not a default action
    by itself.

    • വളരെ തിരക്കിനിടയിലും കുറിപ്പ് വായിക്കാൻ സമയം കണ്ടെത്തിയതിൽ നന്ദി ടീച്ചർ,
      കാനഡ വിശേഷങ്ങൾ വായിച്ചിരുന്നു ബ്ലോഗിൽ അതു ചേർക്കുക.
      നമസ്‌കാരം.

    Philip,
    Good to be here again after a bit gap.
    This is really a thought provoking piece.
    As someone said, it is nearly impossible to please all the people with our actions.
    Only possible way is to ignore such unpleasant treatment or reactions.
    Thanks for the great reminder.
    Keep writing.
    All the best.

    I am here for the first time.
    Well crafted posts.
    This is indeed amazing blog with a lot o of variety of information.
    Thanks for the best blog
    Thanks for sharing this.
    I will visit again and share my feedback for more back links, as per your comment policy one need to wait for some more time.
    This is really an acceptable rule.
    There are people who visit and drop one word or one line comments to get a back link.
    This should be discouraged by all bloggers.
    Very acceptable comment rules.
    I appreciate your decision in this regard, and for the easy visibility you add this note along with all your published posts.
    Great going.
    All the best.

  8. ഫിലിപ്പ് സാർ, ഇതു വായിച്ചപ്പോൾ അച്ഛനും മകനും കൂടി ഒരു കഴുതയെ കൊണ്ടുപോയ പണ്ടത്തെ ആ കഥയാണ് ഓർമവന്നത്. ആറുപേർക്ക് നൂറഭിപ്രായമുള്ള നാടല്ലേ…. നമുക്ക് ശരിയെന്നുതോന്നുന്നത് ചെയ്തു മുന്നോട്ടുപോകുക എന്നുമാത്രമേ സാധിക്കൂ :-)

    കമന്റ് ബോക്സിൽ ബ്ലോഗ് ലിങ്ക് ചേർക്കണമെന്ന് സാർ Whatsapp ഗ്രൂപ്പിൽ പറഞ്ഞെങ്കിലും സാറിന്റെ തന്നെ പണ്ടത്തെ പോസ്റ്റിൽ പറഞ്ഞതനുസരിച്ച് അതിലൊരു ഭംഗികേടുണ്ട് അതുകൊണ്ടു ചെയ്യുന്നില്ല :-)

    Very interesting question!
    You don’t worry go on doing the things mentioned in those four lines.
    Don’t bother what others say about it!
    Your life actions will be an example to them and they too slowly follow suit.
    Nicely presented.
    Thanks for the translation in English.
    I really like your writing style.
    Keep writing

  10. Hi Philip,
    I say do all four. We all have different moods and if people don’t understand us, they are pretty useless in our lives. If they give negative connotations to our moods, it is their problem and not ours.
    I do have to add that I like your comment rules you have put up. No one words! they will end up in the spam folder lol.
