Smart Girls be like

Published

on

When I think of a smart girl, the first thing that come to my brain is a happy face, with happy tone, a class in her demeanor and charm in her personality with a blend of wit and intelligence in her speech and perspectives.  She does not necessarily to be HR manager or lawyer or socialites.  She can also be a tea-staller or a road-side vendor selling vegetables.  To me, smartness isn’t defined by profession or college certificates or grades or major subject, but the quality in her, that just spending a couple of minutes with her, I can say, “She is a smart girl.”

So, here are the things that I consciously/subconsciously observe before I call her “Smart girl.’

1.  She does not act needy

Nothing turns off a man than a needy girl.  They are like “bhallu ko kumpat,” neither you can leave them nor want to hold them — this sense of “I am stuck with this waste of life” sucks.  So, a smart guy never dates a needy girl.  What is needy? One that cannot do anything without her man.  Who needs a constant attention and love and affection.  Such girls can’t pay their bills, can’t do anything on their own, can’t fix anything on their own.  They need her man 24/7 loving her, caring her, doing her things, pampering her…if her man goes away, she cries, she begs, she nags, and what not.  Smart girl does not act needy.  She seeks help only when she truly needs.  She knows lack of testosterone does not make her weak and worthless.

2.  She is not negativistic

Being concerned about bad things happening around and passing comments on those isn’t about being negativisitic.  Being negativisitc to me is having very dark perspective towards everything and anything or being very hopeless on everything.  Also, always in mood to blame someone or others if anything goes wrong.  The “dukhi aatma.”  If nothing, a self-pity one.  Smart girls are positive by nature.  They pass constructive criticism if she thinks is wrong but does not lose her mind or emotion  — she believes whatsoever everything gonna be alright.  Likewise, if someone harms her, she does not blame her but take it as a lesson on how to not let such things happen again and she moves on with positive outlook.

3.  She is not judgmental 

Having opinion towards a person or thing is one thing, being judgmental is totally different.  Being judgmental means constructing a belief without deep understanding or analysis of subject. Judgmental people are very fallacious, stereotypical, and holds shallow and black and white perspectives,  Smart girls don’t pass judgment or act shallow.  She just may have opinion and she knows she is flexible and ready to change her opinion if she is proven wrong.  Whatsoever, she knows she is not passing judgment or holds shallow view towards anyone or anything without deep understanding and analysis of the subject.  Did I say, she respects differences?  Add that too.  Unlike others, who live in an ideal world and anything that doen’t meet the ideal, is bad and wrong.

4.  She knows what means what

There are many things in this world to learn but it all falls into these simple things — politics, literature, science, or history.  Smart girls know somehow what is politics, the popular political terms and their meanings, their essence in a society, their role and responsibilities, their limitations.  Same way, she knows what is art, what is creativity, how not to mix it with reality.  Likewise, she knows basic paradigm of modern science.  She knows history to manageable level, knows how world and lives were evolved overtime, lessons that are drawn, etc.  It does not necessarily mean one needs to have in-depth knowledge on every subject.  One just needs to know what means what and rest will go with flow.  All smart girls are constantly in search of knowledge and information to outsmart the “regulars.’

5.  She is witty

Being funny, bubbly, jovial are traits of extrovert which introvert may not pose precisely, but both kinds can show good sense of wit.  Being witty means ability to give clever response or answers in a conversation that amuse others.  Being witty is a sign of good IQ and broader perspectives.

6.  She knows what she wants to do with her life

This is the most remarkable trait of a smart girl, be it tea staller or MBA student from Harvard — they all know what they want, they are pretty clear on how to achieve them.  They are in-charge of their life and they play God, everyone they talk, everything they do, is all a part of game of making themselves, the person that she wants to be known as.  They know what it meant when someone says “be somebody and not somebody’s.”   It’s not necessary that one needs to become a leader or famous personality or CEO.  Just can dream of a normal life, marriage and kid and graceful death, and still be known for smartness.  Smart girl, even if wants just a normal life of wife and mother role, she is pretty clear what kind of wife she gonna be, what kind of mom she gonna be, how she gonna up-bring her kids and make them better human.  In short, any smart girl knows what she is up to and how she gonna get that and what she gonna do.  They don’t start their day with horoscope.

So, how to be a smart girl?

Figure it out, yourself.

The Chhath Puja is a 4-day long ritual specially offered to the solar deity, Surya, to show thankfulness for good health, good life and to request the granting of some certain wishes.

Day 1: On the first day, the devotees after bathing clean their house and eat the food that is offered to the god to protect the mind from the vengeful tendency.

Day 2: On the second day, the devotees are not allowed to drink even a single drop of water but, in the evening, they eat kheer made up of jaggery, fruits.

Day 3: The evening of the third day which is also known as sandhya ‘arghya’ day where a bamboo basket is decorated with various puja materials, fruits, thekuwa, and laddus which are offered as an ‘argya’ to the Sun. Also, the Chhathi Maiya is worshipped.

Day 4: On the last day of Chhath puja again an arghya is offered to the Sun God but this time in the morning. The devotees go to the riverbank to offer arghya to the rising sun and break their fast and conclude their four-day long worship.

Happy Chhath to everyone! Don’t forget to enjoy some thekuwas!!

World Keratoconus Day:

Every year on November 10, World Keratoconus Day is celebrated to focus global attention on keratoconus and ectatic corneal disorders. The day was first celebrated by National Keratoconus Foundation.

Keratoconus is a disease that causes the cornea to become weak, leading to the thinning and stretching of the cornea, which may result in the loss of vision. Keratoconus is degeneration of the structure of the cornea. The shape of the cornea slowly changes from the normal round shape to a cone shape which affects the vision. The keratoconus mainly develops in teenagers and young adults and the disease keeps on growing, if not diagnosed in time.  

The disease has no prevention and no treatment. With early diagnosis, the disease can be managed and further damage can be protected. In Nepal, the prevalence of Keratoconus is 1 in 2000 according to the recent journal. So, this world keratoconus day, make a commitment to visit an eye doctor once a year for the early diagnosis of keratoconus as well as other eye diseases.
