Making Others Happy - Avni Kochhar

 Hi, My name is Avni Kochhar, and I will share my personal experience of "Making Others Happy" From the beautiful book 'Is your child ready to face the world?" by Dr Anupam Sibal

You see, Making people happy might seem difficult unless you have already done it before. My friends, Enemies, Best friends, Bff's and probably everyone has been sad at some point. So there must have been somebody that has cheered you up from those sorrowful few minutes of your life. May it be family, friends, or even anybody. 

In this story, I learned how Disney created his very own Disneyland empire and Made thousands and thousands of smiles upon Kids and even Adults! See, Disney's goal was to make smiles and not money. This should be the goal of every human in the world - To make smiles!

Making Others Happy - Rishona Chopra


Based on the chapter Making others happy from Is Your Child Ready to Face the World by Dr Anupam Sibal.

In the previous chapter, we read about Compassion. Little acts of Compassion can change someone’s life. The most beautiful act of Compassion that might look very small but is actually difficult is making someone happy. 

There are so many problems in life; I am not talking about those minor problems like a fight with someone or things like that. I am talking about significant issues like, at a very young age, a person had a severe illness and had to undergo several surgeries! That is a natural and essential problem. 

The key to making someone happy is simply hoping! In all tough times, all one needs is hope. Like in the above example, imagine what the child must be going through. What you can do is just give him hope that he can survive, and he will. If you can do that, then you are a doctor! Not one who heals people physically but one who heals people emotionally.

I have never done such a big act, but I have made a few people happy. When one of my friends got severely hurt and was crying, I helped her by giving her first aid and then giving her emotional strength as other children made fun of her for crying. I told her that it was ok; such things kept happening, making her happy.

The most significant act of kindness and Compassion can be making others happy, and the key to doing that is to give someone hope.

Compassion - Vernica

What is compassion? Is it sympathy? Or is it empathy? Is it love? Or is it sharing with others? Well, it's all of this! 

Compassion, being an abstract thing, can help change lives! Even small acts like helping someone tie shoelaces are compassion; being compassionate might take one's life to different turns, bringing success closer.

Compassion is within all of us, but it needs to be shown. The only way to show it is to start now! Let's make small moves and get better! Let's be compassionate!!! 

And this session helped me to understand this virtue of life at a greater length, and I wish to follow it more often.

Compassion - Aanya Kumar


In the reading session on 9/1/2022, I understood that compassion is essential for success. 

Take the example of Princess Diana. Princess Diana had been involved in hundreds of charity events. She learnt sign language for the deaf and actively participated in the British Deaf Association. Also, she supported the Royal Marsden Hospital and became the president of Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children. She was against those who afflicted AIDS and leprosy. 

Sadly she died in 1997. Her works of compassion are always to be remembered. We should be compassionate and help those around us.

Compassion - Rishona Chopra

Based on the chapter Compassion from Is Your Child Ready To Face The World by Dr Anupam Sibal.

As some of us might know, compassion is the feeling of caring for someone. It is to feel for someone, understand one's sense and perform a kind gesture. That little gesture can change someone's life!

All of us are born with compassion and empathy. It is our choice to continue that or go on the wrong path. It might be difficult as most people tend to go on the wrong way.

Take the example of Mother Teresa-

At the age of twelve, Mother Teresa decided to become a nun. She saw the poverty in the world and decided to help the poor. She helped those who needed it the most. 

It's similar to Princess Diana. Although she faced several obstacles, she helped several people. She talked about those who didn't care. 

It doesn't matter how big or small your act is, but compassion is essential.
