My life is 50% wondering
If it’s too late to drink Coffee
And 50% wondering
If it’s is too early to drink Alcohol
What is your advice my friends?……..I remember a proverb in English ‘A Friend in need is A friend indeed’
My life is 50% wondering
If it’s too late to drink Coffee
And 50% wondering
If it’s is too early to drink Alcohol
What is your advice my friends?……..I remember a proverb in English ‘A Friend in need is A friend indeed’
Ten years ago, if someone told me to think positive, I would break eye contact and walk away. Whenever I found myself in a tough situation, either at work, college or in social life, I would be in a bad mood and push people away. My whole mindset became dark and I could only hear were my own negative thoughts. I didn’t realise the damage I was doing to myself and others around me. When I do realise, that’s when my life started to change. I wanted to change the way I think and more importantly, the way I live my life.
In those ten years, I started to read books and blogs on self-improvement and dealing with challenges. From everything that I’ve read, there is one sentence that stayed with me:
“What consumes your mind, controls yourlife.”
That’s when everything made sense to me.I know now that my negative attitude…

If you are a wife or husband and on many occasions you think you are disappointed because of the other…..and think the other is the ‘difficult spouse’…. then this article is for you.
I am thankful to you if you felt there is something wrong in either of the parties and the mistake can be rectified easily.
There are two types of marriages.( Marriages are made in heaven.Is itn’t ?)
2.Arranged marriage ( In most of the eastern countries )
Irrespective of the type of marriage,both the man and the woman of his love have to adjust with each other in order to be compatible.
In fact, post marriage life is full of challenges and it exposes the couple to myriads of issues.
But we all know the truth.
One day or other both the man & the woman have to face unpleasant situation of opposing & different opinions and views, in matters of their day-to-day ‘living together’
The reality of the so-called colourful future has to show its fangs,since it is waiting to strike first !
Once the misunderstanding happens and prolongs….There are two options available
Why to quarrel at all in the first place ?
Now it’s time to think.
1.Realize that ‘ married happily ever after ‘ is an illusion ( Maya )
2.Understand that Wife & Husband belong to the same team and they have to work
together for the success of their married life.
“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.
3.We often hurt our spouse knowingly or unknowingly.Do you know the solution ? Ask for ‘forgiveness’ whole heartedly.
4.When Anger or Helplessness happens to one of you…just take a deep breath and allow the heated moment to pass.Don’t forget.. time’s the greatest healer.
5.Remember marriage is a vow,before God.
Now it’s time to put the following into action.
Don’t allow discord to remain ,not more than one minute,and your anger not more than a second.
Don’t be bossy and do not take one another for granted.
Respect individual feelings & make mutual adjustments
Make sincere effort to avoid jealousy and Ego & revenge,be the first to make the other win the argument.( small trick I tell you…remember whoever does most talking is the one at fault )
Don’t deprive each other of your needs just to take the revenge
Keep communicating,by which I mean try to find where exactly things are going wrong.
Constantly tell to yourself….
Forget & forgive,
I can go also wrong,
live & let live,
let us make best,out of the difficult situation,
I trust you.
I asked an old man “which is more important? To love or to be loved?”
Old man replied “which is more important to a bird, the left wing or the right wing?” – MarriageHumor, Instagram
A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers – Robert Quillen
A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.-yourtango.com
A marriage is a like a house. When a light bulb goes out, you do not go and buy a new house, you fix the light bulb. – Happy Wives Club
Marriage is meant to keep people together, not just when things are good, but particularly when they are not. That’s why we take marriage vows, not wishes. – Ngina Otiende
Any thoughts on being the Difficult Spouse ?
which of the above quotes ,you thing sends the perfect message ?
Thanks for being a patient reader and reaching this point.
Destiny…..I believe, it is because of our thoughts
Thought process is the cause & Effect of which is Destiny.
I am sure you would have never given a thought or two about this !
“Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words.
Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions.
Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits.
Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character“.
Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.
– Chinese proverb, author unknown
Once you are aware of the destiny...take the challenge
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and
willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that
nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not
wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide
whether or not to accept our destiny.”
– Paulo Coelho, Quotes from The Devil and Miss Prym
Now coming to Fate……
Fate is a power that some people believe controls and decides everything that happens,in a way that cannot be prevented or changed.
“Fate doesn’t ask you what you want,fate knows what is best,even if you don’t know”
‘Quotegram.com’“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fatebrings you together, but do so with all your heart”.Marcus Aurelius
What is your take on this ?
Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you
Men over there……. simply accept the fate and keep quite…Shh…tell not anybody,specially your girl friends !!
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones
Be frank.We all indulge in blame game,whatever may be the nature of the problem we face, because we don’t wish to take the responsibility .We even argue that we are always correct,and the other is at fault.( remember the rules…the king is always correct ! )
Very rare to find people,who blame themselves.
The unlaid rule is I can never go wrong !
Why it is so ? Let us think.
We all lie,and learnt the art during childhood and fine tune it as we grow, and to escape the situation,’lie’ comes handy.
By blaming others, you are in a defensive mood,and can pass the buck easily.
“Blame is a beautiful thing, baby. Blame keeps this whole planet spinning. You can point your finger at the next man, you can shift the weight onto him, you don’t have to carry that shit around yourself. You can slide into bed and get a good night’s nap. Yeah, right”.
Narrator Augustus Hill ( played by Harold Perrineau) from Oz tv series
Blame is fascinating –
“it shapes our lives. It can be a benign way of positioning ourselves, a gentle joust or banter, or it can be poisonous, hurtful or devastating for its victims. It can tear apart marriages and fracture work relationships; it can disable major social programmes; it can inflict damage on powerful corporations; it can bring down governments; it can start wars and justify genocides”.
Stephen Fineman, The Blame Business: The Uses and Misuses of Accountability
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” Wayne Dyer
Any thoughts on how not to get trapped by the Blame game ?
Please share your views.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Don’t you agree that,We have to leave things to the decision of the Almighty instead of questioning His wisdom ?
“What have you lost that you cry for?
What did you bring, that you have lost?
What did you create that was destroyed?
What you have taken has been from here, what you gave has been given here.
What belongs to you today belonged to someone yesterday and will be someone else’s tomorrow.
Change is the law of the universe”.
What has to happen will happen for good or bad and let us accept things with folded hands by surrendering to His wishes. And His Wishes can not be explained or questioned or analyzed as to the logic. I mean if something bad/good happening……just leave things to His wisdom.
If you think I am crazy….it’s OK
As per Bob Morley’s Wisdom, Everybody is going to hurt you.
I think he is correct because we expect too much from the ones ,we love ( a bit selfish attitude ,I say ) and in turn feel hurt if they are not up to our expectation. (again a selfish motive)
“To love is to suffer.
To avoid suffering one must not love.
But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer.
To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy.
Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.” — Woody Allen
Are you confused ? Is too much happiness also a suffering ?
I know you don’t have an answer.Neither I have !
How can L O V E have dual power…. ie adorable & destructive ?
What is your take ? Please share your thoughts .Have you ever suffered because of LOVE?
English language is as simple as tough.
One is proud that,it’s an international language and people from different parts of the world can communicate with each other easily.
But the language is also funny,in sense derogatory words not only used but also accepted as a norm.
Take the Example of the word ‘BITCH’
Oxford dictionary defines Bitch as
1.A female dog,wolf,fox or otter
2.Unpleasant woman,offensive woman.
Commonly used as a slang word.
But why use it with KARMA ?
‘Karma’ is a religious concept,where as ‘Bitch’ is a derogatory word.
I can’t explain why ,but I am not comfortable,whenever somebody combines religious words with slang stuff.
Is KARMA is really bitchy ?
My feeling is KARMA is not a bitch.
My guess is people use this word whenever they think that the person is suffering because his or her bad Karma
Suppose the person is enjoying his life because of his or her good Karma……can we still say Karma is a bitch ?
You can’t escape karma … It is what it is.
It doesn’t judge, it’s neither good nor bad like most people think.
It’s the result of all the actions, positive and negative–a constant balancing act of events–cause and effect–tit for tat–reaping and sowing–what goes around comes around … However you phrase it, it’s the same in the end.
– Alyson Noel, Shadowland
Any thoughts ? Do you believe in KARMA ?
We are humans and we keep a separate identity from animals,because of our super brain.Surprisingly we lack basic sense…….ie. Common sense.
I believe that animals have common sense.( as you can see in the above photograph,how well they are disciplined ).
Let us be frank ,we lack this (conveniently) at times when the situation demands.
One particular answer in ‘Yahoo answers’ by LM S is interesting.He says,
“Animals are not wired like us. We internalize things and complicate things by thinking about things too much. Also, animals do not have mental disorders like people do. Animals respond really well to behavioral interventions (like food as a reward) and humans don’t because we think too much and complicate the situation more”.
Yes we unnecessarily complicate simple things and claim that we are super smart by solving these man-made ‘complicated stuff’
What is Queue ?
According to Oxford Dictionary
1.British –A line or sequence of people or vehicles awaiting their turn to be attended to or to proceed.
A list of data items, commands, etc., stored so as to be retrievable in a definite order, usually the order of insertion.
3.Archaic –A plait of hair worn at the back.
Why do we Queue ? ( Standing in the line )
Because it is polite to wait for your turn.Without Queue,there will be a total chaos,resulting in further increase in waiting time.
But still why some people jump the queue ? ( cutting the line )
May be they lack discipline or not keeping well or arrogant or they may miss the appointment in some other place,may be carrying a sick child….. I can go on and on…and surely at least 90% of the times these jumpers face wrath of others.
Psychology in forming the queue humorously explained below
Thanks for reaching this point. Any thoughts ? Feedback ?
By this time,you must have read the news that An American was killed by an isolated tribe in the sentinel Island of Andaman.Our sympathies and prayers are for the young boy and his family.
The sentinelese people resist any attempt by outsiders to reach them.They are also protected by the Indians laws where in, it is illegal to approach them,since the government wants to protect the tribe against outside diseases spreading to them and wiping out the entire tribe of 100- 200 people.( since these people have no immunity for diseases)
Andaman & Nicobar Islands is one of the union territories of India and are scattered group of islands in the bay of Bengal.
The Sentinelese people violently resist any contact with outsiders.
It is said that this young American wanted to reach this tribe to spread the Message of Jesus & Christianity and Love.
Now my point is who is correct & who is wrong ?
Is the tribe is correct in killing this young boy for reaching them (against their set of rules) ?
Is this young boy correct in reaching the tribe (against Indian laws) to spread the message since he believes in certain faith ?
Who is to Judge and what will be his or her Judgment ?
I remember the following quote….. that No body is wrong.
“Genuine tragedies in the world are not conflicts between the right & wrong.They are conflicts between two rights”. George Hegel
What are your thoughts ?
When an obnoxious and aggressive world displays its nuttiness just say to yourself, “I have
nothing to say to that.”
The world cries, “Give me your agreement or your disagreement but
whatever you do, don’t ignore me!”
Intelligently notice both outer and inner darkness then quietly ignore it. Switch your
attention back to the present moment with this powerful self-talk statement. You have
higher things to think about and darkness’s anguish is not your concern. Every “success”
darkness has is based on convincing you that its anguish is your concern. It wants you
involved with it, fighting it, trying to help it. Dare to reply instead, “I have nothing to say to
As The Daily Guru said once, “The resistance to the disturbance IS the disturbance.” Work
with this exercise this week. Notice how good you start to feel as you cease throwing fuel
on the initial disturbances – all those tiny little outer and inner fires that are very
significant until you react to them.

One day, someone showed me a
glass of water that was half full.
And he said, “Is it half full or half
empty?” So I drank the water. No
Joke apart some of my favorite quotes
1.“Whether your cup is half-full or half-empty, remind yourself there are others without one.”
2.The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose – Kahlil Gibran
3.The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection – Thomas Paine
4.A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them – Leonard Louis Levinson
5.“The optimist sees the glass as half full, the pessimist as half empty. What I see is water that can save someone’s life.” –
6.The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true – James Branch Cabell
7.Optimism is the foundation of courage – Nicholas Murray Butler
8.A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties – Harry Truman
Philosophy derives from Two Greek words,Philos (love) & Sophia(wisdom).
Philosophy sheds light on the causes of various situations happening in this world and when you start asking questions in the form of ‘Why’…. remember,you start thinking like a philosopher.
“An unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates
By celebrating World Philosophy Day each year, on the third Thursday of November,UNESCO underlines the enduring value of philosophy for the development of human thought, for each culture and for each individual
“Philosophy is an inspiring discipline as well as an everyday practice that can transform societies. By enabling us to discover the diversity of the intellectual currents in the world, philosophy stimulates intercultural dialogue. By awakening minds to the exercise of thinking and the reasoned confrontation of opinions, philosophy helps to build a more tolerant, more respectful society. For UNESCO, it is also the way to unleash humanity’s creative potential and generate new ideas. Philosophy creates the intellectual conditions for change, sustainable development and peace. ”
It is a day for people to share thoughts, openly explore and discuss new ideas and inspire public debate or discussion on society’s challenges.(timeanddate.com)
Do you know This day also includes
1.Clean your Refrigerator day and
2.Use less stuff day.
Oh ! My Refrigerator !
Have you ever thought of giving your fridge some official leave ? I know you wouldn’t and you dare not ,Because Fridge is one item,which never supposed to ask rest or leave.
When was the last time you cleaned your Fridge ?
How is modern life possible without refrigerator in the kitchen ? It this not part of our life ?
But strangely, all of us take this one appliance for granted.And don’t even give a glance !
But you become restless once you realize that it failed to work or you are getting an unpleasant odor ,the moment you open its door.
So maintenance of our beloved refrigerator is important
No body is sure why November 15 th is selected every year( Some say Whirlpool started this ),but one way it is good,since Thanksgiving Day is going to come shortly.
You need not wait till next November 2019 to clean again,it is good if you clean it once in 3 months.
Why should you care to clean the refrigerator ?

Are you going to clean your fridge after reading this post ?
If you could make a 30 second speech, what would you say?
One particular 30 second speech is inspiring.
“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the Air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”
Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest.
Value has a value only if its values is valued.
The above 30 second speech is by Bryan Dyson-Former CEO of Coca-cola
I felt it is really tough job to prepare instant 30 second speech.
Every one has to face some problem or other.
Describing somebody that ‘the fellow is born with silver spoon’ is utter rubbish.
Everybody has to undergo suffering.
Whether the person suffers from cancer or just mild fever,or any other reason doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is rich or poor,doesn’t matter.
Good or bad doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is pious or unholy ,doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is criminal or law-abiding doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is moral or immoral doesn’t matter.
Whether a new born suffers or a 100+ old person suffers doesn’t matter.
I can go on and on….
The point I am trying to stress is ,there is no escape from suffering once you are born.
The only difference is , some suffer more and some suffer less.
Again I don’t have an answer.
Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. Isaac Asimov
When one suffers,the first question one puts invariable is “Oh God ! why me ?” as if one is pure (at heart on par with Almighty), and rest of the population deserves to suffer.
Remember there are others in this world,whose suffering is more than yours.
Instead,why can’t one boldly say ” why not me ?”
By saying so, Are we not gaining confidence in ourselves to face the eventuality ?
To be frank, why should one get exemption from suffering in one’s life ?
Is this not God’s way of telling us to be
Search for solutions( inventions,science etc)
Improve inner strength,
Understand the meaning of life ( philosophy),
Know the value of time.
So we are thankful to the Almighty for giving us an opportunity to survive and gain strength from sufferings.
So our thoughts should be

‘There are two reasons for drinking.
One is ,when you are thirsty,to cure it.
The other when you are not thirsty, to prevent it ……’
With advanced science,excellent reasearch and invention of sophisticated tools,we are supposed to be confusion free.
Ironically the same science is giving us contradictory findings.
1.Laughing vs crying
It is generally said ,Laughter is the best medicine give your body booster with laughter
Now a few researchers came out with opposite thought …..ie. you must cry to ease out your
stress and even set the time frame as to how often you should cry.
For a strees free life you must cry once a week
2. More sex vs Limited sex

3. Tea Vs Coffee
Which drink is better for you ?.The school of thoughts for each, give us confusing signals.
The less said the better.
All of us need not be health freaks,but we are conscious about the food we eat,more so with sugar,salt and fat.Regarding these three important food constituents…..lot of confusing things are said by researchers.
Earlier it was said eating eggs and nuts are bad due to high fat.Now they say they are the best.
Earlier they said eating sweets bad for diabetics,now they say diabetics can have equivalent of sugar ( sweeteners ).God only knows any side effects they can cause.
Researchers have not spared the meat eaters.People are confused further by the terms meat’, ‘low fat meat’ etc.
What about these health trends ?
implants( better implants vs best implants ),crazy diets,diet beverages,
weight reduction pills,libido pills,alternate medicines,
Deceptive new technologies,spa therapies,oxygen kiosks,
Decisions based on friendly neighbourhood health advises,
Pantsdrunk,lagom and hygge ( scandinavian wellness trend )
7.Hot coffee vs cold brew
Earlier they said cold brew is better than Hot coffee.Now research claims opposite.
The above are some of the examples.
Dear fellow blogger,what are your thoughts ?Did you come across these types of contradictory research findings ?
Have we to really take these reasearch/friendly neighbour advises seriously ? or Do we have to continue our life style ..as it is ?
Or switch back to Ancient Wisdom ?
What is that Stanislaus trying to convey ?
He says, to be certain you have to be doubtful !
First of all if you decided to believe in something ,why should you be doubtful or apprehensive ? Are you not sure of yourself ?
Is this a contradictory statement or it is a perfect statement ?
Readers please enlighten me further with your thoughts.
In the recent discussion in blog articles about ‘Truth’ and meaning of ‘Absolute truth’ and ‘Relative truth, I realized that we forgot to discuss the role of ‘Maya’ ( illusion). Recently I came across an article in op ed of Deccan Chronicle,and thought it’s apt to understand the meaning of Maya (illusion),in our day to day life’ by sharing the same .
Before we proceed further, you should know that Sudama, is a childhood friend of Hindu Deity Lord Krishna.
One day Sudama wished to have a glimpse of God’s Maya (illusion). He had heard a lot about Maya but never understood what it was as he was always surrendered to God.
One day, he finally asked Lord Krishna, “What is Maya? What is the form of Maya? How does Maya untangle a man?” He directly sought answers of these questions from Lord Krishna and kept requesting him to show a glimpse of Maya.
Lord Krishna replied that when time comes he shall give him the answers and also show him Maya.
Then he said, “Let us go to Yamuna to take bath.” Both of them came to the banks of Yamuna to take bath. After taking bath, Lord Krishna started dressing in Yellow and in the meantime Sudama went to take a dip in water.
At the time of taking dip, Sudama felt that the river was flooded and he was being washed away in it. With great difficulty, by taking the help of a small Rock he came out of the river.
Perplexed and hungry, Sudama was roaming about and finally reached a village. There, an elephant garlanded him. People informed him that their King had died and it is their country’s rule that after the death of their king, whosoever is garlanded by the elephant would be the next king.
The coronation ceremony of Sudama was done.
After sometime, he got married and had two sons during the twelve years of his married life.
Thereafter, one day his wife passed away. Sudama started weeping in sorrow. People tried to console him.
They informed him that it was Mayapuri’s rule that he too would be sent wherever his wife went. He too would have to enter his wife’s funeral pyre.
Sudama was shell shocked to hear this. Now, he forgot mourning the demise of his wife and started weeping for himself. He said that since he was a foreigner, this rule should not be applicable to him.
When people did not listen to him and were making him sit in the pyre, he requested for permission to worship the river once last time. People allowed him to do that and sent four people to keep an eye on him.
Sudama could see death approaching him and in this fear, chanting Lord Krishna’s name, he took a dip in the river and came out crying. Just then, he saw Lord Krishna Standing and getting dressed in yellow. Lord Krishna asked Sudama as to why was he weeping.
Sudama was already stunned and when he saw Lord Krishna he was astonished too. He asked Krishna “Where did all that vanish? What all is happening? I am not able to understand anything.”
Lord Krishna said, “This is my Maya.” Maya means “forgetfulness”. Illusion, unreal, myth, ignorance, etc. are Maya. One who forgets me, the God, and thinks that the world is the only truth and is always engrossed in it, he is entrapped in Maya. Deeming the unrealistic world as real and considering Paramatma and self as to dual entities is Maya.
Despite living in the materialistic world, Maya could not touch Sudama till he was devoted or surrendered towards God but as soon as he forgot the God, he was trapped in Maya . In the same manner, worldly man forgetting God, gets entangled in Maya and spends the whole life experiencing joys and sorrows.
Despite living in the materialistic world, if we think of God at every moment (which is possible) then along with enjoying the bliss of God, we can live our worldly life too to the fullest.

“In the world of relative truths and opinions, many opinions, viewpoints, possibilities and probabilities can coexist, and each can stand on its own merits in particular contexts and conditions. This is the truth of Truth. Every truth or principle is a possibility in some context, condition or situation. Sometimes you may find it worth fighting for and sometime not. Truth is an undulating wave on the surface of impermanence. You may call it by any name, but we consider it to be Maya, the deluding power of existence which hides in the play of light and shadow to create the illusion of something or the other. You will find it only in the unstable currents of life just as the sun light that reflects upon the waters of an ocean, but you cannot truly grasp its brilliance or immensity until you cross those waters and stand on the shore. ” Jayaram V.
Is truth single or multiple ?
No two individuals see the challenges and situations in the sameway.
Hence there is no one truth. But many truths.
“In a rapidly ascending balloon, were two men.One watched the earth getting farther and farther away.
One watched the stars getting nearer and nearer and nearer.”
Interesting facts about the ‘Carpenter Bee’
They got their name from their ability to drill a hole in the wood.
Can ‘tunnel’ upto 10 feet long.
Long time back the Great Scientist predicted….
“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.”

Every bad situation will have something positive.
Even a dead clock shows correct time ,twice a day.
During the difficult time in life, develop the habit of having immense faith that situations will improve and soon your life will be on the right track.
To be frank ,this is what happens if you have a little patience and sooner the dark clouds get cleared and you get a perfect vision to see things and get ideas how best to come out of the situation in a positive way.
Don’t ask me how much time it will take,remember,these are testing times and have faith and patience.
Ultimately you are the winner !
Some say the above unknow quote is nothing but Height of OPTIMISM or even go to the extent of telling us it’s Height of IDIOSY.

Don’t you agree that proverbs give us that extra knowledge and wonderful wisdom ??
Or you think proverbs are nothing but impossibilities or sometimes even absurdities,outdated sometimes contradictory … in context of modern word’s thinking prowess ?
I was not getting a proper and quick answer for the above proverb from the internet search and finally I was successful and I felt one answer applies perfectly.
Your thoughts on Proverbs ?
The paradox of our time in history is
We have taller buildings, but
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger
houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, yet more problems;
More medicine, but more ailments.
We drink too much,
Smoke too much,
Spend too recklessly,
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get angry too quickly,
Stay up too late,
Wake up too tired,
Read too little,
Watch television too
And pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but
reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often.
We have learnt how to make a living,
but not a life.
We have added years to life, not life to years.
We have been all
the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We have conquered outer space, but not
We have done larger
things, but not better things.
We have cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We have split the atom, but not
We write more, but
We plan more, but
We have learnt to
rush, but not to wait.
We build more
computers to hold more information,
To produce more copies than ever,
But we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and
Big men, and small
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;
Fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips,
One night stands,
And pills that do everything
From cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when
there is much in the show window,
And nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you
can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Spend some time with
your loved ones,
Because they are
not going to be around forever.
Remember to say a kind word to
someone who looks up to you in awe,
Because that little person soon will
grow up and leave your side.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment
For someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love,
Give time to speak,
And give time to share the precious
thoughts in your mind.
And always remember that life is not measured by the number of breathes we take,
But by the moments that take our breath away.
Snake’s poison is life to the snake. It is in relation to the man that it means death
That’s the irony of life ( I always get confused between Irony & Paradox,Not sure when to use, English pundits can help me )

Am I witness to a miracle…..I am not sure.
Life just keeps presenting us with tough choices. Should I accept this new job? Should I ask her out? Should I tell him how I feel? Should I start my own business? Should we launch this month? Should I travel alone? Should I post this video? Should we get married? Should we have kids?
Every choice we make, either big or small, easy or difficult, daily or rarely, has potential benefits and risks attached to it. Often, we know what it is we want to do, but we still don’t do it. Why is that?
According to Margie Warrell, author of the book ‘Brave’ and international speaker, we humans are naturally afraid of putting our vulnerability on the line. The current situation, even if we don’t enjoy it, can appear like an easier, tolerable and saver option. With the development of brain imaging…
