Qaisism: My Rules for Life

All of us follow some rules in our lives. Those of us who are popular for breaking rules and are often termed as 'Iconoclasts' also follow one rule. Of course, their rule is to break all rules. These rules come into being after we start learning from our failures. We need to think of our petty mistakes and mighty blunders, in order to create some rules that save us in future. There are mistakes which we tend to repeat ever after and to check some of these, we need to stick to our RULES.

Talking about myself, i try to conceptualise some theorems even from others' lives. As goes the saying,

" The best is one who learns from others' mistakes as we can't always afford to commit all of them ourselves and then, learn from them"

I have chosen a term for my theorems and axioms; Here onwards, I would call them "Qaisism". This term is inspired from a friend's life. His name is Kashif and he is an instruction designer. He faced a situation where his boss asked him to get more of "Kashifiyat" in his writings. That set him thinking and deciding his own powerful and individual style. To know more about Kashifiyat, go the post - "Why Kashifiyat?" and read the comments for that post, as well.

Moving to Individualism, one of the greatest poet cum philosopher who inspires me is - Sir Mohammad Iqbal. His concept of khudi is simply marvellous. According to him, Khudi (Ego) is the most important factor responsible for a person's development. To read more about the concept of khudi, read the translation of Sir Mohammad Iqbal's famous work - "Asrar-e-khudi".

For those who can't very well comprehend the concept of khudi, ther's a popular sher by Sir Mohammad Iqbal. The sher goes...

Khudi ko kar buland itna
ke har taqdir se pehle
Khuda banday se khud poochhe
Bataa, "teri raza kya hai?"

(Let your personality be so strong that before God apportions fortune,
He asks you, what you would like to have.)
So. coming back to my philosophy, I would want you to keep coming back to this blog to know what's there in Qaisism.

Thats great prologue to Qaisism. I hope we will be receiving regular updates on the RULES you talked about.

You righly pointed out that "The best is one who learns from others' mistakes as we can't always afford to commit all of them ourselves and then, learn from them". So the best way is to share ones experinence.

Eagerly looking forward to more on Qaisism.
