Karma Code Style

Dear Readers,

Is the law of karma which says that everything comes back precise? To know more, here I introduce my friend to you; yes you are right, the same friend who gifted me the beautiful and useful Karma diary. I promised my readers in the last blog that I would introduce my interesting friend with whom I witnessed the boomerang effect of Karma and what happened with her was life-altering!

Till over a year ago my friend was living a life struggling to become an actress. She worked with a broadcasting unit but knew that she had to chase her dream.

She would often say when she saw her kind of people, young boys and girls hoping to get that big break, it would keep her going. Even if one day she wouldn’t make it, she wouldn’t give the dream up! After all, for her life was all about making the choices she wanted to make.

Though she was a full time struggling actress for a year, the curvaceous brunette was determined to make it. No one knew how until being an out-of-work aspiring actress, she arrived at a book store to buy a book. As she was parking her car she accidentally backed into a new brand Porsche. It was a turning point in her life. Not the dent on the car but the impression she was about to leave on the owner of the expensive car!

Being sensible and wise, rather than just driving away unnoticed, she left her details on the other person’s car so that she could pay for the damages she had caused.

On her way back home, she kept thinking that how last year when she was in a hurry to meet someone from a casting team and was assured that she would get a call in a day or two, she never got one in fact. While brooding further she, all of a sudden, recalled a similar incident when someone had rammed her writer friend‘s car a few years ago and how beautifully her friend had shown composure and grace in dealing with the situation that eventually landed her to receive the compensation without much ado!

 “Truly, what goes around comes around”. She kept thinking.

In the meantime, the owner of the car, when he arrived was amazed at someone’s honesty. He also happened to be a casting agent! She was surprised when he called her and asked her out to dinner. Little did she know that moment her dream chased her in return and she ended up making a great connection. The next moment, he offered her a role to work with a famous director’s production house. She was thrilled as the role was that of a protagonist!

She is a successful woman now who has her own Karma story to tell. In the next blog, she will narrate her own Karmic pattern. After all, good deeds bring good feeling and good feeling is the threshold from where good fortune begins!

As a silent observer, most of the time when I would witness people and situations ,I never thought of weaving a story out of it until the other day when my  friend  brought me a beautiful ‘Karma diary and asked me to keep my informal musings documented. All she wanted was to help me become a writer and give wings to my imagination. Her one thoughtful gesture prompted me to write and nurture my creative thoughts. Not only this, it also helped me value the little acts of kindness which are though small, can influence us to a great extent.

Redefine Altruism

Unexpected acts of kindness like giving a word of appreciation to your relatives, friends and acquaintances or reaching a helping hand to someone in trouble are a timeless reminder that simply doing something nice for the sake of it are some of the most heart-warming and fulfilling things we can do for others!

Spread Smiles

In fact, by just watching someone else do a good deed inspires us to help out too. Researches show that witnessing kindness not only makes us happy but also help us become more selfless. Well, isn’t the best way to spread smiles is to be more generous? Yes indeed it is!

Be Generous!

You don’t have to wait for a situation to begin with a good deed. The acts of kindness that you do onto others come back to you in some form or the other! Little joys can come in the form of small but handy things and here is to choose something useful from a broad variety of Karma Stationery through the

— The Silent Observer

Leather is one of the most enduring materials. A leather notebook can be relied up to look like a ‘classic’ from the moment you acquire it. But there are many more reasons we love leather notebooks.

1. A leather notebook ages well

Leather is one of the few ‘fabrics’ that will often genuinely look better with age…ahhh, If only that were true for all of us! Leather really does develop character over time. It can soften, it can take a scrape, it can vary in color…and have it all add to its unique personality! So your notebook will look like, well, your notebook. Not someone else’s.

2. A leather notebook is durable

For many of us, a notebook doesn’t live on a desk, but in a handbag, backpack or briefcase. Which is why a leather notebook can be such a perfect choice if you’re looking for durability – the heavier cover of leather means it’s less likely to get bent or damaged. Leather is pretty impossible to destroy (well, we’re sure you could do it if you tried, but we don’t recommend it!).

3. A leather notebook looks more expensive

If you’re giving a notebook as a gift, you don’t want to look cheap! So whilst leather notebooks can still be purchased affordably, they often simply look more expensive. And, to quote Cody Chesnutt, “You look good in leather”.

4. A leather notebook feels great

Leather is a material that delivers a true tactile experience. It feels great to handle – you can even give it a little pat every now and then if you feel like it.

5. A leather notebook is often refillable

Many leather notebooks are really an outer sleeve with a notebook that can slide in. This means you can replace the paper interior once it’s filled, without loosing your lovely, worn-in-just-right cover.

6. They’re a little romantic

Leather is such an ‘old’ material – it’s been around so long, binding books, that it just has a sense of history, gravitas. You are writing in the sort of book people have been writing in for a century or two. Call us romantics, but this has a certain appeal in a modern age.

7. There are so many colors of leather notebook available

Yes, you have your classic blacks and browns. But you can find leather notebooks in all the colours of the rainbow – red, orange, green – why not?!

8. A leather notebook is usually handmade

Not all, but many, leather notebooks are hand made. It’s rare to own a handmade item and there’s something special about it. It means it has been handled with the care of an artisan and is more likely to have a unique look immediately.

9. A leather notebook looks great filed on a shelf

If you use a series of leather notebooks, and fill them with your ideas, your creative writing, your sketches, then you can store them on a shelf and they still look fantastic. And they invite you to later pick them up, thumb through them and see what wonder you filled them with once upon a time.

10. Leather notebooks are usually filled with high quality paper

Whilst we’ve talked a lot about the cover, of course the paper is critical. As a leather notebook is often more of an investment, the designers ensure the paper they use is high quality. It’s usually thicker and more fountain pen friendly than is found in many paper notebooks.
