Every person in this world gets a chance to get even with those who have hurt them in one or the other way… This is not an exclusive property but is available to all of them once in their lifetime.

This is not a revenge case; not a rivalry case and not even a plunge to make things right in your mindset. But it only takes some early feelings of the mind taking place on the ground.

It is an individual’s attitude to another which decides what action/reaction he will give to another in a situation and the attitude being the resultant of all the interactions among them.

When even God does not propose to judge a person till the doomsday then who are we to judge him so harsh now?

Five Lessons About How To Treat People

1. First Important Lesson – “Know The Cleaning Lady”

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: “What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?”

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

“Absolutely,” said the professor. “In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say “hello.”

I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

2. Second Important Lesson – “Pickup In The Rain”

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.

A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man’s door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home.

A special note was attached. It read: “Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband’s bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.”

Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.

3. Third Important Lesson – “Remember Those Who Serve”

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him. “How much is an ice cream sundae?” he asked. “50¢,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.

“Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?” he inquired. By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient. “35¢!” she brusquely replied.

The little boy again counted his coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said. The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left.

When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies. You see, he couldn’t have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.

4. Fourth Important Lesson – “The Obstacles In Our Path”

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand – “Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.”

5. Fifth Important Lesson – “Giving When It Counts”

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year-old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, “Yes, I’ll do it if it will save her.”

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, “Will I start to die right away?”.

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her.

This case happened in a hospital’s Intensive care ward where patients always died in the same bed and on all Sunday morning at 11a.m, regardless of their medical condition.
This puzzled the doctors and some even thought that it had something to
do with the supernatural.
No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths took place at 11 AM.
So a world-wide expert team was constituted and they decided to go down
to the ward to investigate the cause of the incidents. So on next Sunday
morning few minutes before 11 a.m.
all doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for
themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding
wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off
Just when the! clock struck 11…
and then……













Santa Singh, the part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and
Unplugged the life support system & plugged in the vacuum cleaner 🙂

Come september/october; a fresh air of fun and joy is spread out everywhere… Everybody is happy and elated.


There are lights; decorations & cheer spread out everywhere…


Seems like god has bestowed his blessings on humanity


And came to meet the humanity himself….


Way to Eternity…

Last sunday we went on an excursion trip in which we also visited the famous ISCKON temple in south delhi. This was my second visit to such temple; first one being to the ISCKON Vrindavan.


ISCKON – International Society for Krishna Consciousness

An aura of magic and frangrance flowed into our bloodstream the moment we entrered the main temple space. The chanting of the bhajans; the surroundings and the light breeze of the evening filled our minds with new spirit.

I remembered my school-days when we were taught about not doing the “murti-puja” (not worshipping deity’s idol) as it was an arya samaj* school.

*Arya Samaj (Sanskrit ārya samāja आर्य समाज “Noble Society”) is a Hindu reform movement founded in India by Swami Dayananda in 1875. He was a sannyasi (renouncer) who believed in the infallible authority of the Vedas. Dayananda advocated the doctrine of karma and reincarnation, and emphasized the ideals of brahmacharya (chastity) and sanyasa (renunciation). There are approximately 3-4 million followers of Arya Samaj worldwide.

But then suddenly the doors to the deity’s section opened and we cherished a beautiful moment that cannot be expressed in words.


“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama

Rama Rama Hare Hare “

No Path, No Way And No Destination!

Sometimes timid, sometimes fast, we all walk on the same lanes with the similar kinda thoughts and attitudes. Cool may it seem but sometimes hinders our growth in one or the other manner. We all know this but still… in a persuasion with ourselves and in a juggle with the world we walk on and on and on….

Reminds me of the endless songs and phrases we’ve heard since our childhood to keep going inspite of failures, keep going inspite of blockages and so on…

To create niche and walk into a lane never explored requires the courage of a soldier who keeps on going what he thinks is right and what he feels is the way and not on the passage many have passed by.

This thought never ends and will never end…
After all, we all know just this…

“Ruk jaana nahi tu kahin haar ke kaanton pe hi chal ke milenge saaye bahar ke…”

“Friendship” most beautiful relationship existing on earth…

A Laugh to share…
A Reason to care…
A Never Ending journey…

Many endless words and phrases have been written for this but since ages it remains undefined in any of the manner. Everytime a new person we meet and is well-suited for being our good friend we end up laughing, crying and enjoying together.

But ever thought of how do we define “Non-Friendship“; we define it instantly that it is the person whom we don’t like and don’t like and don’t like….
It is the person with whom we’d never like to have any relationship with and so on…
But the irony is that……
