My Hobby

‘An idle mind is a devil’s workshop, is a well known saying and is really true even to this day. A man who has no pleasant occupation for his leisure hours, is likely to fall into some mischief. So it is important to cultivate some hobby.

A hobby is what we do in our leisure hours. There is a well known proverb : “All work and no play make jack a dull boy.” It stresses the value of leisure and recreation. So, a hobby is more of an amusement than that one has to do to earn money. Our life will become dull if we are always busy in doing the same work. leisure saves us from dullness and boredom of life. Hobby is the best use of leisure. By hobby we mean a favourite pursuit which one follows during leisure time for the sake of pleasure with no consideration for monetary return. It gives us a sense of satisfaction and content.

The word hobby is taken from Hobby House which is a wooden horse on which small children ride for fun and pleasure. In it ‘H’ stands for happiness, ‘0’ for occupation, ‘B’ for best and Y for ‘Your’. This analysis tell us that a Hobby is the best and beneficial occupation which gives you happiness.” A hobby makes a man fresh and happy while enhancing his interest in life. It keeps him joyfully busy in his leisure and provides him recreation.

Hobby increases our efficiency to work by giving us healthy entertainment. It gives us an opportunity to think on different aspects of the literary world such as composing poems, writing stories, fiction and host of other non literary activities. All the great people had their hobbies. The hobby of late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was that of writing. Hence, he could produce great work like Glimpses of the world history. The hobby of Muluk Raj Anand, is that of drawing and painting.

A hobby which becomes a source of income is not a hobby. Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb who made copies of the Holy Quran which fetched some money to him, was not pursuing a hobby in the true sense of the term. As a devout Muslim he believed in earning his honest bread.

Every body must have some hobby. My hobby is collecting quotations of great personalities like Gandhiji, Abhram Lincoln, Kalidas, Napoleon, Chankya etc. I collect quotations while reading books, newspapers and magazines in my leisure. I feel relief and more zeal after reading the quotations.

Quotations give a disappointed person a lot of inspiration and courage and help him to prepare himself for doing something new. In my opinion, when a boy or girl passes the age of 18 to 25 he or she has to build up his or her career. As many difficulties crop up in his/her way. He/she loses hope and gets discouraged. These qualities playing a great role in inspiring him/ her to try and try again until he/she achieves his/her goal. The quotations play a great role in inspiring him/her to try and try and try again until he/she achieves his/her goal. The quotations are the experiences of great personalities. A man who follows them, can not fail in any field of life.

Whenever any of my companions suffers from despondency. I advise him or her to read Gita Saar of Lord Krishna. Because after reading it, man thinks that whatever has happened with him, is for his welfare, God does every thing for our welfare. Quotations inspire me whenever I am in trouble. Collecting of quotations has really become a great hobby for me. I think after reading my views you do well also start collecting the sayings of great personalities.

Hobby gives us mental peace which in turn gives an internal peace which in return gives us health and wealth. It is that point of the work in which we takes interest and derives pleasure without any lust for profit or petty gains. The main aim of hobbies is to lighten the burden of our life and our free time in the best possible way by keeping ourselves busy and happy. But we should not devote too much time to hobbies because it might destruct our daily routine. We should divide our day in different segments and there should be a segment for leisure in which we can indulge in our hobby.

If we indulge in our hobby in most parts of the day, we will disturb our daily routine. So we should follow this quotation which provides an essence of life.

“Work while you work

Play while you play

For that is the way

To be happy and gay.”
