It is such a waste, when people are alienated (friends, relatives, or business partners Parents vs Children,Superior vs Subordinates etc . ) from each other for days, months or even years,….all over some misunderstanding…that could have been sorted out sooner or even one of the parties had shown more Humility or Understanding.

Toughest job on the Earth

 

Image source / credit ; http://www.fancy.francy.com

Guess….What is the toughest job on Earth ?

Googling gives you billion answers in nanosecond ! Nothing to compare to what I am going to tell.

If you are eager to know , just answer the following question.

How to tell someone that their breath stinks without hurting their feelings ?

1. When. 2. Where and 3. how to say nice words at the same time stressing the point.

Many times we have seen relationship getting worse when somebody is frank.

Sadly we even avoid the person while in conversation. And even dread meeting the person.

Or you think it is rude even to give hints etc.

Or just forget everything and continue conversation with the person and just move on….

Any members aware of any Etiquette…if at all it is there.

Is the ‘Mint’ only solution to overcome this problem ?

Members suggestions/ opinions appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.

How do you differ from Rich People ?

Source-awesomequotes4u.com

Can it be too true to be true ? Because human beings can never get satisfaction what they already have…and always feel ,they could have had much more and …better life….

To what extent you think you are richer ,since present day situation demands lots of expectations etc from every corner and one is really taxed from all angles ?

J A Byrdlip, my well wisher,said

“It is because the media pounds away telling you that you always need the latest gadget, the fastest gadget, the shiniest gadget and the instant gratification that goes along with it, that you forget about the basics until it is too late. Keep the mind numb and you control the person”.

Then you have Topics in the internet like….

Are you the one trying to achieve inner peace at any cost ? Then you have come to the correct place.

” I’m passing this on because it worked for me.A doctor on T.V. said that in order to have Inner Peace in our lives,we should always finish things we start. Since we all could use more calm in our lives,I looked around my house to find things I’d started and had n’t finished.

Best Age

Best Age

What has been the ‘Best Period’ in your life ? And Why ?

Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.

Love Expression

Love Expression

“Don’t be afraid to express love to those who you love. Because sometimes loving is not enough. We have to express it.”
Anurag Prakash Ray.

What a ‘Silent’ way to express ones love !
As seen in the above photographs, the persons have expressed their love in a silent way by writing on the currency notes.

Looks like they wanted entire country to know the intensity of their love since the currency gets circulated throughout the country.

How you classify this behavior?
You call this Childish/strange/fanatic/disgusting/lovely/uncultured/dirty…. etc. etc.

Please feel free to express your opinion.

Welcome Every morning with a smile.

Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another Golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday.

Be a self starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day.

Today Will Never Happen Again. Don’t Waste it with a false start or no start at all.

Head Gear

No..No… I am not talking about the Helmet, that the Indian Lady is wearing while riding the two wheeler and the lessons regarding advantages of wearing helmet etc. etc

If you look a bit closely…you notice that the woman is wearing tightly knit jasmine flowers

why the Indian women,especially those from South India wear the flowers on their hair without fail, everyday?

One Mr. Ramdoss in ‘Yahoo Answers’ got annoyed for this question and replied like this.

‘This is a tradition in India. Just like this there are social and fashion traditions in other parts of the world also. Why don’t you question them? Why does a man wear a tie in front, not at the backside? Stupid question, is it not ? It is stupid to ask a woman in India why she wears flowers. It is stupid to ask a widow in India why she does not wear flowers or wear a red spot on her forehead. This way you can go on questioning every custom all over the world. Why do you question the customs and practices of India alone. When the other parts of the world were cavemen, India had a great civilization working’.

But I felt it would have been proper for him to explain the importance/significance/purpose of Indian women wearing flowers on their hair so that people from other Cultures/Backgrounds can appreciate the explanation given.

Every morning, the women religiously put on the flower strands on their head after a bath. These flower strands definitely make the women look beautiful (For Indians atleast, I don’t know how the westerners feel about wearing flower on the hair).

Flowers are a symbol of love, good luck, happiness and prosperity.

In Indian household , a girl is supposed to wear flowers on her hair because it brings happiness to the family and prosperity to all the members.

Wearing flowers on the hair is the symbol that Goddess Lakshmi ( Goddess of Wealth ) is residing in the house and that wealth will never leave the house.

Jasmine ,Rose and Hibiscus are common ,jasmine being the favorite.

Please enrich me further if such things are seen in the western world and if it is so…what is the idea of wearing the flowers on hair, from westerners point of view ?

Hair Style

Sikhas

Hair-Style-Hindu traditional way

The tuft of Hair known in India as sikha is a long tuft, or lock of hair left on top or on the back of the shaven head of a male Orthodox Hindu.

Though traditionally all Hindus were required to wear a śikhā, today it is seen mainly among Brahmachari, ‘celibate monks’ and temple priests

The śikhā is tied back or knotted to perform religious rites. Only funerals and death anniversaries are performed with the śikhā untied or with dishevelled hair. Dishevelled hair is considered inauspicious, and represents times of great sorrow or calamity.

In his autobiography, Mohandas K. Gandhi ( Popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi,Indians proudly describe him as Father of the Nation) writes about his encounter with an orthodox Hindu:
He was pained to miss the shikha (tuft of hair) on my head and the sacred thread about my neck and said: ‘It pains me to see you, a believing Hindu, going without a sacred thread and the shikha. These are the two external symbols of Hinduism and every Hindu ought to wear them.’ … [T]he shikha was considered obligatory by elders. On the eve of my going to England, however, I got rid of the shikha, lest when I was bareheaded it should expose me to ridicule and make me look, as I then thought, a barbarian in the eyes of the Englishmen. In fact this cowardly feeling carried me so far that in South Africa I got my cousin Chhaganlal Gandhi, who was religiously wearing the shikha, to do away with it. I feared that it might come in the way of his public work and so, even at the risk of paining him, I made him get rid of it.

The śikhā was one of the few symbols of Hindus that transcended caste, language or regional barriers. Although there were variations of the style of sikha amongst communities, it was obligatory for all males.

I have seen similar but slightly different hairstyles ,Chinese having in some of the Chinese Movies.

In India I have come across Westerners who are followers of ‘ ISKCON’ ( International Society For Krishna Consciousness),having ‘tuft of hair’

MONKEY LESSONS

Taming my Monkey mind is a full-time jobTaming my Monkey mind is a full-time job

Don’t think of yourself as an ugly person,

Think of yourself as a Beautiful Monkey -Soojie

Always I wonder How we are different from Animals.

As you can see in the above photo ,the big monkey( I presume ,the teacher ) with its back facing us, seems to be busy teaching its first morning lesson to the students. You can also notice that three student monkeys are very attentive & disciplined and one monkey is a bit unhappy & restless .The baby monkey of course has a long time to go to learn the ropes.

This one reminded me of my school days ,where some students gel well with some teachers and not too happy with some other teachers even name calling etc.
I feel the whole thing depends on to what extent the teacher can ‘inspire’ his/her students.

CASTLE IN THE SAND

CASTLE IN THE 'SAND'
CASTLE IN THE ‘SAND’

“We are like children building a sand castle. We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of colored glass. The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.”
Pema Chodron

Anyhow castles in the sand reminds me of the popular number in 2005 by the band ‘Philosopher Kings’

Philosopher kings -Lyrics to ‘Castles In The Sand’

Built a perfect house in a perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down
We held on tight like hungry lovers
Watched the day break from beneath the covers
Had to know for sure what it’s all about

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

I saw the naked light and it burned my eyes
Couldn’t look away no matter how I tried
I watched you explode when you think it’s over
And I burst in comin’ like a supernova
Had to track you down, had to find you out

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

And tides roll in, and waves get closer
The night was over
But we get stronger every time
We build our castles in the sand

Built a perfect house in perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down

Oh, just tell me we’re happy,
Just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

Oh, just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

What is ‘ Peace Of Mind ?’

Thesaurus Dictionary says- it is the absence of mental stress or anxiety.

Wikipedia talks of Inner Peace,referring to a state of being Mentally & Spiritually at peace with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress

Being at peace is considered by many to be healthy Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss,happiness,and contentment.

But the question is how do you get the Peace Of Mind ?

Crystal Balls are famous for Crystal Gazing ,a methodology used by ‘Readers’ or ‘Seers’ in predicting the future, to tell fortunes even making the clients decide about solving the current problems.

Are not current problems are your own making ?

Do you believe in planning your future based on the fortune teller ?

In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it !' Douglas Adams This is such a powerful idea that - as the Sun rises in the sky & the Air heats up and as the Puddle gets smaller & smaller ,it still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything is going to be alright, because the world is meant have him in it, mind you it was built to have him in it....so the moment he disappears.....catches him rather by surprise. What way our Life is different from Puddle thoughts ? We always thing we are eternal & think that our death is million years away and go on with our mundane activites,fighting with neighbours, harbouring jealousy, busy with gossip, enjoy hatred, even disrespect our elders including kith & kin, behave arrogantly ....forgetting that our life can end ...next millisecond and thus wasting our precious time . So let us start enjoining every second of our life ! #puddle #reflection #thoughts #streetphotography #chennai #photowalk
