It's just amazing to see people who take time out to care about other people.

Jack said...


Watching TV is fine but one should not get addicted to it or as a matter of fact to anything. Take care


A very old old song had made an impact on me when I was young. It goes something like this "APNE LIYE JIYE TO KYA JIYE, TU JI AYE DIL ZAMANE KE LIYE." Which I feel implies that do something for the society and each individual is part of society, isn't it?
Take care
