Driving In Kuwait

Driving in Kuwait can at best be described as an adventure

People seem to think of their cars as an extension of their own ego’s and therefore it takes very little to get their fragile ego’s bruised.

Today morning was no exception-, as I left home for work, bright and chirpy listening to my “Yippe it’s a new day- Music Mix”, I came across an accident. From the looks of it the guy had reversed his car on to the road while leaving his building (presumably at great speed) and got rear ended by a bus. As I waited for the traffic to move – I realized that it was the attitude of the people passing by that was causing the chaos – the habit of rubbernecking  just leads to more traffic build up. If you can’t help then don’t hinder – move on and if the emergency services are required then they can come in faster! Anyway so while trying to traverse this anarchy I met the second cause of the chaos – people who need to get somewhere before anyone else. 20 minutes of listening to someone honking away because he needed to get ahead of me lead me from being bright and chirpy to moody and grumpy. So it got me thinking, I really didn’t need this first thing in the morning. – Why can’t people be more pleasant? All that is required is a smile or a hand wave to make everything go smoothly instead of this early morning aggression.

So people of Kuwait be safe – drive safe, be kind and smile. You can make or break someone else’s day with your actions!!

Each Day is a Little Life

They is so much we can say about mornings.. They can be a Good Morning and they can be a not a very Good Morning… Do you believe in the saying that it also depends on from which side of the bed you wake up from..

Well, not to forget they can be all sorts of Adjective mornings too.. like sunny / cold / gloomly / happy / sad / busy / exotic or peaceful (if you are on a holiday).. and if you happen to be Pregrant then it could start with Morning sickness and the list can go on forever..

But what if you woke up to a perfectly normal morning and thanks to your mom, dad, spouse, child, boss, boyfriend, girlfriend, colleague or even the guy parked next to you at a traffic light or someone tries to take you over on the road, just becox he/she thinks it will be the end of the world if they dont rush in the morning..

I guess what matters most, how you see it .. if you let it bug the daylights out of you, you are doomed for the whole day and also depending on who it is.. Is it someone that important to ruin a whole day of your precious life.. cox you only Live Once!! In the end it all depends in the order of the occurence and by who… you cant let some stranger mess up your day not realising what he/she did and here you are swearing / sulking and have already started to say ‘Oh, I am having a bad day!’ On the other hand, if its becox of work or a loved one, then I think you should let them have it… Cox its just not fair.. After all it could be a beautiful Morning !! But then thats my take on it… Also Did You Know?

The ability of a person to wake up effectively in the morning may be influenced by a gene called “Period 3” also known as the Clock Gene. The same gene dictates if someone is an “owl” or a “lark”. This gene comes in two forms, a “short” and a “long” variant. It seems to affect the person’s preference for mornings or evenings. People who carry the long variant were over-represented as morning people, while the ones carrying the short variant were evening preference people.

I would love to find out my type of variant.. so coming back to ‘Mornings’, if you want to have a Good Morning it is very essential to have a Good Night’s sleep hence avoiding any health problems or accidents while dreaming and driving!!

” When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive -to breathe, to think, to enjoy and to love, who YOU want to love and what YOU want to love.”
