Such activities are called ‘hobbies.’ Hobbies are activities which help us escape the daily grind of life and work and give us pleasure and peace of mind.
Well, I have many other hobbies like playing chess, flying kites, cycling, etc. Apart from my school books, I have many books related to science, history, biography and etc. He also learns the value of neatness not only in respect of gardening but all other matters.Every day after school it is my habit to check on my garden and look after the plants.The garden has to be kept under a strict check, mowed punctually as the grass grows at a speedy rate during the rainy season, and cleaned at least twice a week.I inherited the love for gardening from my mother and now with her help and interest; I have prepared a small garden in front of our porch.It is a thing of beauty with a grassy carpet and trimmed hedges.I have developed a habit of regularly reading the verses of the Gita'. It instead gives me the knowledge and improves my standard.I want to be a Karmayogi in my life, and go on with my actions without worrying about their fruit. It is true that one can not afford to buy so many books for one's hobby, and so can't I. So it is no more a problem for me to pursue my hobby. For instance, hobbies like stamp collecting, bird watching, photography, sports and music make our time worthwhile and give us information about different things. The joy of witnessing blooming flowers and leaves fills my heart with a sense of achievement and realizing the fact that the work of my own hands is bearing fruit definitely gives me pleasure.Gardening also helps to keep me fit, strong and healthy for working away in my garden results in the beneficial kind of exercise that is good for both mind and body. Through the course of our lives, we bide our time doing particular tasks that may either help us to earn our living or build the staircases to our futures and careers.However, amidst these compulsory tasks, most of us also do things which we enjoy doing.
