Crazy Cards

Updated on April 30, 2014

Simple and Stylish

A pack of cards never ceases to amaze me. I will tell you why. There are a lot of games that can be played using a simple deck of cards. Most of these games have different versions according to different countries. They are easy to play and can be taken anywhere to drive away boredom. They bring lots of people together and is an easy game for lazy afternoons. This page is not about the different games that can be played using cards. Rather it is focusing on the take away from this simple game that has an amazing reach all over the world.

One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.

— Oscar Wilde

You may be the king but you still need a queen to win the game.

Never underestimate your partner.

Love your Queen

Game: For a rummy to happen with a face card, a king alone will not suffice. A queen is needed along with the king to complete the set.

Reality: In real life too, never under estimate the people who love you and live with you. You have accomplished what you have accomplished only with their support, especially your wife's.

It is important to understand what you have.

Only then can you know what you want.

Know Your Assets

Game: Analyzing your cards is half way to victory. Though cards is a game of chance , there are still strategies to make you win.

Reality: Know yourself. Being happy and knowing your assets gives you a clear focus of life. Before long you will set your next goal and keep flying high.

Know your priority.

A triplet has no meaning when there is no rummy.


Game: The card game has certain ground rules. For example, even if you have two triplets and two jokers, there is no use to any of it as long as there is no proper rummy.

Reality: Organizing tasks according to priority will in fact avoid a lot or rework and unnecessary mess later in life.

Let go of things which might be a burden in the long run.

Ditch burdens

Game: Throwing away a useless card is very important to make way for a new opportunity, in this case a better card.

Reality: Carrying your burdens for a long time will not only bog you down but also prevent you from looking at fresh opportunities. Prune unwanted thoughts and deeds and allow some fresh air into your life.

There are no permanent winners or losers.

A game of chance

Game: Change is the permanent part of this game. Numerous factors influence the game most of which are beyond the capacity of control.

Reality: Never lose the trust factor about life even when things are constantly changing. Change is the greatest opportunity for trying out things you have never even considered before.
