Have You Done your Good Deed for The Day?

The mobile phone was created with a definite purpose. But now, we don't just talk, we listen to music, take pictures, set reminders, use it as a wake-up alarm. And now the iPhone has a app that can make you DoGood.

Each day you get a message that urges you to do a good deed - like thank an old teacher, make someone laugh and so on.

I thought we had a conscience for the very purpose, but apparently these days you need a reminder ...

If it does indeed succeed in what it hopes to ... that is to motivate at least a thousand people to do an act of kindness, even with a little nudge, I guess it is a job well done.

We could even gift an iPhone ( of course, from public funds) to each of the 545 members of Parliament and to the MLAs of different states with DoGood messages.

Visit your constituency today. Do not take that bribe. Provide drinking water to the village. Attend the session. 365 messages. What a world of good.

It would be money well spent!


  1. Greetings from Turkey.Have a nice day.

  2. Wow...that was such a great post..absolutely loved it.

  3. Nice one ma!!! You could think it is slightly foolish to set a reminder to do good. I think most of us may not intentionally do bad but to consciously do good makes you feel really good... Does it make sense??? I might be rambling.

  4. Radha, hello! At last....finally I'm able to comment after 3 wks of not being able to!

    Actually now that I think of it, there are many who won't be happy about that....

  5. Great idea! Definitely we should gift each MP and MLA an iPhone if it will serve as their conscience!

  6. Great post, simple, yet with a strong message.

    I was seeing your other posts, I like your thoughts. And the bird post well... again so well conveyed. :)

  7. Thank you for the nice comments

  8. Well...isn't that something. I so agree...that one would need a reminder to do good. On the other hand...perhaps it is good in this busy world to have something make us stop and take stock of what our priorities are. Do unto others etc....


Would love to know what you have to say:
