At last a ray of sunlight

At last a ray of sunlight, as for the last 3 days it has been overcast and the climate was london-like, with slight drizzle on saturday, and it was due to this stupid rain I was late to meet someone ,whom I was supposed to meet on time.
Yesterday an interesting astronomical phenomenon occurred when crescent shaped moon was flanked by venus and jupiter in all their shining glory.
But history interests me more than astronomy, just today I was reading about pyramids, it is fascinating. If I would have been rich, I would have been a historian. But then I like so many things, then I would have got bored being just a historian.
Sometimes I feel lonely.... I wonder why?

A Nice Article about Love by Swami Vivekananda

I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me. Once when we were
sitting at the edge of a swimming pool, she filled the palm of her hand
some water and held it before me, and said this:
"You see this water carefully contained on my hand? It symbolizes Love."

This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand caringly open and
it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you attempt to
close your fingers round it and try to posses it, it will spill through the
first cracks it finds.

This is the greatest mistake that people do when they meet love...they try
to posses it, they demand, they expect... and just like the water spilling
out of your hand, love will retrieve from you .

For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its nature. If there are
people you love, allow them to be free beings.

Give and don't expect.
Advise, but don't order.
Ask, but never demand.

It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly
practice. It is the secret to true love. To truly practice it, you must
sincerely feel no expectations from those who you love, and yet an
unconditional caring."

Passing thought... Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take;
but by the moments that take our breath away.....

Life is beautiful!!! Live it !!!

A few ideas for all Indians!!! to combat these terrorizers

A few ideas for all Indians, in the wake of rising terror attacks.

Don't fear!!!
Don't be afraid!!!
Be alert!!!
Think of this whole country, or at least your locality as your house or your kids, and keep an eye on it, as you would on your kids or your house.

Expect the government to be helpless and learn a few things like,
>first aid (things like what to do when shot, to stop bleeding,etc)
>hand to hand combat (at least!)
>increase in fitness levels (in case you have to jump or run)

It would be great if military training and military service of one year, at least, is made compulsory for every Indian (college level) .

Lets fight with power!
Lets fight as tigers!

I know all this is pointless and people who can make all this happen are not reading this,
but still I got to write it.

Jai Hind!
Bharat Mata Ki Jai!

Blank Post In Memory of Martyrs of Mumbai Attacks 26/11

After Effects of Mumbai Attacks

The after effects of a terrorist strike in any part of India (except J&K) is the same, and this time it will be no different.
All public and commercial places will have an alert security setup, which involves checking bags and cars, etc. These checks will go on for few days and then after that, its back to our good old, callous attitude. Sometimes change is inevitable, in India it is avoidable.
With all their heart all the humans in this world would like to pay tribute to all the martyrs of this attack.
Still some questions arise!
When will all this stop......it seems like a cycle...
one guy in his country has seen his family die, he thinks whole world is his enemy,
and he goes on a killing spree to avenge, then people who were killed in this have to be avenged, so what happens in the end is that everyone is avenging, its a vicious cycle, can't there be peace.
But that does not mean anybody should get soft in dealing with such atrocities.
What we can do is, in some way stop the fueling of this terror machine, which would at least slow it down.

Take Care Mumbai!!
Get Well Soon!!

Arsenal will against Chelsea!!!

Arsenal win 2-1 in an well played football match against chelsea. No chelsea player could net the ball, because the only goal they scored was an own goal by Arsenal.
Arsenal team played well, and fought to first level the score after being a goal down, and then continued the fight to get a lead and then to keep the lead. The battle was not fierce as chelsea players could hardly get on target, with only "thug" tactics of Terry being their best show.
Its all good,
>V. Persie got two goals, what more could you ask?
>Cesc and Ade played well
>Nasri and Gallas didn't dissapoint
>Clichy and Sagna are best full backs
>Song tried hard to hide the truth that he is average player
>Denilson, Djourou, tried hard to make a difference
>Almunia was solid
