    Losing a Couple of Clothes from Your Wardrobe

    No, not as a reason to buy new ones, but to give them to the homeless and poor! If you haven’t ever felt the magical happiness of giving, you must try at least this once and see for yourself how beguiled it makes you feel to make the world a better place for somebody needy.

    Losing Your Voice after a Long Antakshari Session with Your Family

    Antakshari should be declared the national game for Indian weddings because it is something we can’t do without.

    Losing Your Ego and Making Up with a Friend

    Even if you think the stupid fight their fault, the ego isn’t worth losing a dear friend. It is natural even for best friends to disagree over certain things, but holding on to your point and losing the person it is no macho thing. If you will initiate to sort out the fight once, they will do it the next time for you.

    Losing Your Fear of Something and Trying It Out Openly

    Courage, confidence and even so called fearlessness are the results of facing, embracing and finally, dancing with your fears. Did you read what Nelson Mandela had to say? He had said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Okay, only reading his won’t suffice; go on to lose your fears and conquer your dreams.
