11th july...7/11

this day comes every yr....n will keep coming every yr...we cannot erase from the calender even if we wished....i just hope not many dates join the fatal date list....it is a reminder of what happened 3 yrs back...reminder of what the world is turning into....

on this day almost 200 hundred innocent people lost their lives in 7 MUMBAI LOCAL TRAIN BOMB BLASTS...destinies of 200 families changed in a fraction of second....

let us remember the victims and their families in our prayers....

also this day is a reminder of how unpredictable life is...your loved one who goes to office or college might not turn up in the evening....let us learn to appreciate our life, our family and friends....

let us live life completely...
let us learn to set right priorities....
let us not get disappointed easily...
let us be thankful to god for giving us each new beautiful day....
let us learn to be happy...
let us smile more often and make others smile :)
lets see the silver lining...
lets see the glass half full...
let us live each day such that we wud not regret our actions....
lets learn to see all the good things happened to us and be thankful for it...
lets not lose hope in ourselves and in goodness of others...
let us celebrate life...

song of the day....I HOPE U DANCE.

Excerpt from the Speech given by Chetan Bhagat at Symbiosis.


Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same with life, where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.


One thing about nurturing the spark - don't take life seriously. Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends.Do we really need to get so worked up? It's ok, bunk a few classes, goof up a few interviews, fall in love. We are people, not programmed devices.


Start Enjoying from this moment......
good quote : Its A Beginning!
Don't be Serious, Be Sincere!

love and marriage...

A student asks a teacher, "What is love?"

The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back.

But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."

The student went to the field, go thru first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders....may be there is a bigger one later.

Then he saw another bigger one... But may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.

Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he start to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted.

So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand.

The teacher told him, "...this is love... You keep looking for a better one, but when later you realise, you have already miss the person...."


"What is marriage then?" the student asked.

The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."

The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reach the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he feel satisfy, and come back to the teacher.

The teacher told him, "this time you bring back a corn.... You look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get.... This is marriage."*
