Our heart wants an ideal world, one in which there is enough possibilities to fetch us anything. And our expectations from that kind of a world doesn’t have any space for displeasure or pain. That’s because human nature always hopes and does ‘justuju’ for the best things in life.

Justuju – which means quest, search, desire – is always associated with a plan of action.

So, for example, if you want to have a better world around you, if you want to be healthy, if you want to be happy, then no one else is going to make this possible for you. It's you who will have to work for it.

For this, you cannot get angry over the smallest things, judge people unnecessarily, feel the need to announce your feelings all the time. You’ll try to be more patient and more understanding. And finally, after all these things, when you start feeling the change within, you’ll have achieved your justuju for a better world.

But sometimes, our justuju is for material things, like a house, or a big car. And poet Altaf Hussain Hali has written about this thought in this beautiful couplet.

‘Hai justuju ke khoob se hai khoob-tar kahan, ab theherti hai dekhiye jaakar nazar kahan’
Altaf Hussain Hali

The first line says that the heart is always on the quest to find the best of the best things. We always have another desire even before having achieved the one we have now.

The second line says that the heart wonders when it might say, "That's it, I’ve got everything. Now, full stop."

But will this ever happen? No.
