I read these quotes recently and felt that I must share these with you all :

An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'

Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.

Delegate tasks to capable others.

Simplify and unclutter your life.

Take one day at a time.

Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.

 K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble. 

Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

 Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you GOD .'

Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).

Sit on your ego.

Talk less; listen more.

Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

 The Beauty of Life does not depend on how happy you are.
But how happy others can be...Because of You...
Today, we are together. Tomorrow, we may depart,
But the memories of our friendship will always be in our heart

Before I go any further may I wish all of you Happy Independence Day.

Today we have completed 65 years of gaining independence after having been ruled for so many centuries by outsiders. Like on every Independence Day a lot of celebrations have been done and a lot of show of patriotism claimed. Most of us, including me as I was just 2 years old at that time, are not in a position to understand the actual importance of this transition except what we gather from history books. Unfortunately even history books make a passing reference to atrocities carried out by those rulers as our present set of elected rulers are more worried about vote banks than what is good for our country. We all know how Babar could establish his dynastic rule and how East India Company pushed out the then rulers to take over.

It was all basically because of disunity or not being ONE with each other. It seems that we have not learnt this lesson as evident from what our respected leaders say and do. I know we elected the ones who rule us but is it not a fact that except a handful of voters who judge candidate by merit, rest majority is swayed by caste, religion, region and many a times by pressure of unlawful activity by goons of some candidates? Is it not time to become aware of such actions of ours and be sensible while electing our representatives? Should the ones who have ability to raise awareness about power of vote speak to those who are not so literate to understand this while casting vote?


Should we let the history repeat itself and be ruled by OUTSIDERS after  our country is split into fragments by outside influence?

Whenever a couple has disagreements and separate, temporarily or permanently, all of us think of their children. We all speak about children of broken homes. Has anyone ever given a thought about grandparents of such children? I know in many cases it is parents of either husband or wife who may be responsible for such split but there are surely some instances where it is just the EGO of the couple which plays spoilsport while parents are keen that they resolve whatever issue be by logical two way communication. Has anyone ever thought what they must be going through at fag end of their life? How much they must be missing grandchildren? I know many of you may suggest that they may indulge in some activity to occupy their mind. Some may suggest prayers and keeping busy in some religious activity or the other. But should one not have faith in God all the times? Some may feel that they could do some social service which one should do in any case and not just in such circumstances. There are some who may suggest that they may take up reading / writing, be TV addict or even socialize. Travel is yet another option, to religious places or otherwise. But has anyone ever thought that at the end of it all they have to get back to empty home some time or the other and miss the naughty pranks of grandchildren? Isn’t it tough life at final years of age? Many of them may be requesting God to recall them to end their misery. Hope and pray that no one faces such situation.
