"Ram Chandra Ji Kh Gye Siya Se, Aisa Kaliyug Ayega Hans Chugega Dana Dun ka, Kauwa Moti Khayega."
A well Composed Song by Rajendra Krishna ji in 1970, When i wasn't even born. It is a song in Hindi, considered to be a bhajan due to religious subtext. In the landscape of the Hindu religion, Rama is one of the central Characters, while Sita is his companion. The Lyrics of this song describes some of the immoral human behaviors that one expects to see during the Kaliyug (Present Days). This is a special time that has been prophesized, and marks the coming of the next avatar of Kalyug i.e. Kalki. During this time mankind and civilization will have become devoid of all moral values and Ethics. The Return of God was also Repeated during the time of Krishna and the details can be found in Chapter 4 verse 8 of Shree Bhagawad Gita as below. paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge "In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I advent myself millennium after millennium."

What Being Human actually is?
It all depends on our Mindset. Mindset is who you really are at your core. It’s your habitual way of thinking. While it’s not easy to change, the purpose of life is to evolve and become better a human being. So you should think about these human qualities from time to time and always endeavor to do better. Your mindset is what really differentiates you from your peers. If you work hard at developing what your human qualities, you’ll set yourself up for success in work and in life. it’s much more likely that a person with the right mindset will be able to develop the required skillset than that a person with all the hard skills would develop the right mindset.
Following are the basic Qualities that a human must hold-
Having empathy—whether for colleagues, family, or friends—comes from focusing on someone else’s needs, struggles, and feelings. It requires that you open your heart to them and put their needs before your own. That you be fully with them in the moment. That you look deeply into their eyes and really see them for who they are. You need to be open to many different types of people from many different cultures. But you can’t connect with people when you’re feeling worried, defensive, angry, frightened, or ashamed. Being empathetic lets you look at things from different people’s perspectives and internalize what you see.
“Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place.”-Daniel H. Pink
“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle, as well as from your own.”-Henry Ford
2. Responsible & Kind
Being responsible of things you do makes you more of a human because here you don’t blame the consequences over to someone else, rather you yourself make up your mind to boldly face both of the positive and negative consequences which build others trust in you. Be responsible for every action you take affecting any life on this Earth. Being Kind is to be friendly, generous and considerate towards any living creature living on this earth feeling there pain like it pains to us. Just keep yourself in there shows every time you are going to act anything for or against them.

“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”-Albert Einstein

Honesty is the quality of being honest or free of deceit and untruthfulness. And such persons are Sincere of there surroundings and everyone near him. and Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Being honest means telling the truth and being straightforward and open with people. A very wise man once said, “Tell the truth, but never a harsh truth.” People with personal integrity always try to do the right thing, regardless of whether anyone would ever know what they’ve done. They have a strong moral compass. It takes courage to do the right thing whatever the consequences. Integrity is a valuable quality in everyone, but it’s vital in leaders. Your honesty and integrity will engender trust in others.
“In people you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.”-Warren buffet
4. Self Aware Human
Being Self Aware is having Conscious Knowledge of one’s own Character, Feelings, Motives and Desires. Self-awareness—knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are and acknowledging what you have yet to learn requires mindfulness and deep reflection on your thoughts, your emotions, your motives in your interactions with others, and what is happening in your life. It is a valuable quality that everyone should cultivate. When you don’t know the answer to a question or the right solution for a problem, or you’ve made a mistake, don’t be afraid to admit it. Other people are usually aware of your ignorance, weakness, or mistake anyway, so trying to hide your deficiencies just shows a lack of integrity and inevitably results in the loss of their trust and respect. In contrast, admitting your weaknesses increases your credibility and engenders trust.
Being Self Aware is not the absence of mistakes, but the ability to learn and correct them.-Daniel Chidiac
