A drink a day keeps the shrink away

Its celebration time isn't it? Everywhere I see people enjoying the festivities...irrespective of what cast, religion or creed...thats what it is called the fever ...in the air...its so contagious....that no one remains out of its catch ;)

“Enthusiasm is contagious. Be a carrier.”

One thing mostly I found...and that is....this picture will tell you everything :)

"Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul" ~The Koran

People were enjoying....giving gifts and were trying to be with there loved ones...whether they were near or far....communication isnt tough these days :)


"Marriage is like a phone call in the night: first the ring, and then you wake up"

So you wine,dine and shine on the phone like a star ;)

"They are not long,
the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while,
then closesWithin a dream"

Christmas isn't a season. It's a feeling

The two aspects that I believe when its Christmas.... :)

"One of the nice things about Christmas is that you can make people forget the past with a present"

I was wondering...what is tough...to read ??? OR to make one read????

“For a tree to become tall it must grow tough roots among the rocks.”

Tough I guess its like the never ending story of the chicken and the egg :)
I really admire the teacher...the guru...the professor...Guide....and what not...the more we respect ..the more names we have...but ever thought how tough it would be???

"He who opens a school door, closes a prison" ~ Victor Hugo



I always think and that is what I plan...that I should end my retirement age by teaching poor needy kids...give my knowledge or I must say at least teach something that I have learn through out my life. When I go away from this world I want...to give something...there is always happiness in that. “It's important to give it all you have while you have the chance.”But when I see ...how tough and difficult it is to teach a kid..what can on think of many kids...in school...!!! Its a nightmare...I wonder...how these teachers do it. I am sure…

I have read history in school and I am pretty sure so many of you may have too. Getting interested in history subject is more or less an art of the teacher who is teaching you...as that teacher's tacts of teaching make one interesting and curious about what is history and to explore it further deep down to know the reality.

"A teacher affects eternity he can never tell where his influence stops" ~ Henry Adams

But more than reading true history and what is taught as history is two different aspect and I dont blame this on teacher..instead it could be the syllabus or so...

"The true aim of everyone who aspires to be a teacher should be, not to impart his own opinions, but to kindle minds" ~ Frederick W. Robertson

All I want to say is reading the true history and watching history is really a discovery in itself..!!!
I had read so many stories of world war I & II and the catostrophy that used to take place and the inhumane bloody incidents...but I could never imagin…

"It is generally agreed that "Hello" is an appropriate greeting because if you entered a room and said "Goodbye," it could confuse a lot of people" ;-)

As my last post says ...how the holiday season is spreading the fever of celebration...so is the busy period for the postal authorities as well..with so many greeting cards :)
As a kid I had stamps, coins and different kinds of pencil erasers collections...as well...that reminds me I had a classmate-friend Uma -she had plenty of scented erasers in a nice little jewellery box...and all she used to share it with was ME :).....we were not together for a long time though in that grades of 1st and 2nd...that was the journey or time I spent with her but some people's affection and sensitivity remains in your heart forever...:)

"We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish."

Its so strange I started writing something on a topic of my collection... hobby and I remembered this fri…

Everywhere its holiday time...everywhere you hear pplsaying..I did all my x'mas shopping...or I hv still to shop...and what not..:)

"To many people holidays are not voyages of discovery, but a ritual of reassurance."

Sometimes...I feel the talk itself distracts my mind from work...lol...:)

"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!"

Yes..its beautiful to look around...I guess the atmosphere itself brings cheerness and celebrating moods in ppl's mind and heart..:)

"Happiness is more a state of health than of wealth." Frank Tyger
I also look forward for these holidays...as it brings everyone together irrespective of your differences..yet when one is happy they smile..enjoy and celebrate :)...so much of similarities...in our smiles :)

"Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so."

So my dear friends.…

My week days were so terrific...with meeting deadlines...but this quote always kept me motivated... :)...may be it will do to you too ;)

"You can eat an elphant if you do it one bite at a time. "-Robert Riley

and so....I finished my deadlines..by the end of friday...I could only think of watching a peaceful movie and relax at home ...:) isn't that strange for a person like me ...that too on a friday evening hahaah ...

"Self love, my liege, is not so vile a sin as self-neglecting."- William Shakespear

Well...I decided to watch 'In Custody' starring all great actors..Shashi Kapoor, Om Puri, Shabana Azmi, and the list goes on...its actually based on a novel written by Anita Desai.

"Language exerts hidden power, like a moon on the tides"~ Rita Mae Brown

But this movie really touched the cord of my heart...how 'Urdu' is fading away...in todays era...infact I always loved this language for its politeness and sweetness...and the poetry...!!!

Symmetry is what we see at a glance

I was on my way to park near the Fisherman's wharf when I saw these symmetrical yet so beautiful...really I wonder sometimes...God's creativity... :)

"Even the greatest of creations start from small seeds"

I wonder sometimes..if I am really in US... lol...yes this part it doesnt look as part of US...its...more or less desert place or Mexico... :)But I must say weather is cool and so the scenes too ..!!! Life gives so much of excitement and happiness ...mere by admiring at them....this palm tree doesnt have much yet has so much to attract anyone :)
So...as one of my friend today sent me a quote...

"You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, she is beautiful because you love her "

Isnt that an awesome quote...so guys its not that love is blind hahahahaah ...oops am I opening another can of worm....;)

But all I know is............

"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who …

"The time to relax is when you don't have time for it."

Ever thought how it is when you feel someone really cares for you and makes you feel so carefree about life...how it would be...???

"Men who love humanity have all dreamed at least once during their lives of bringing all their fellow men together in a state of carefree happiness. And only the world of the theater ever really succeeds in doing this."

Well...with me its so true..as I experience...!!! Its my nature to be extra precautious in everything that I am like 'man with the plan' kind and sometimes I think its too stressful too...to be over prepared....!!!

"The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time." ~ Mark Twain

But then many times being prepared and over cautiousness is also not good...I suppose...as sometimes one need to face surprises too ...:) isnt it?

"People only see what they are prepared to see." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

And someone really makes me feel so stressfree about everything.…
