“We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness”

Isn’t this true? I guess we all go through this…when you analyze certain things which you never thought of and now when you see things happening in certain way, you just believe in miracle!"The miracle of friendship can be spoken without words...hearing unspoken needs, recognizing secret dreams, understanding the silent things that only true friend know."
Where as sometimes it’s the other way ;)A point to ponder! What my friends say about this?"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." ~ Buddha

“Everyone has a "best friend" during each stage of life-only a precious few have the same one.”

It was like yesterday when I was talking to someone called Carol Daniel about her Zellers Credit Card, how she can benefit if she ties it with our bank CIBC ;)
Carol, for me a white woman who from the other end asks me where I am from and that she loves my English :D…!
When she came to know about India and the costumes of South Asians she got so excited and she said my husband loves Indian women and the saree too! I would love to buy one but here you don’t get it!
To this I jumped and said, well you do get sarees if you visit Gerard Street – the Indian markets in Toronto and she said well they are very expensive.
This made me think, big deal I can get it for her cheaper that too from India ;) it was the mid month of November and I thought let it be a Christmas gift from my end to her :D

“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.” ~ Henry Ford

I really don’t know what made me think so and I just said this to her without thinking! But I made sure I have her favorite color etc.…

It was morning 10:00 a.m. and the doctor seemed so tired when I looked into her eyes.Just that I couldn’t stop myself I asked her – Dr what happened you look very tired and its only 10, seems like you had a late night!
"These days you must be feeling tired and your legs must be paining...Don't worry,...Its only because you've running in my mind day and night!!"
She said oh yes! Around 2:00 a.m. there was a delivery case and it lasted for 2 hours as it was normal delivery. It just struck to me, oh! Yeah, if it was cesarean then one doesn’t have to go at such odd hours. That’s when she shared another incident where she said, I have this girl who is scheduled for cesarean and somehow I tried to fit it as per the date that she wants it to be done however she is not happy and is crying and begging to operate her at certain time, which is totally not in the hands of the doctor.

I was a bit confused wh…

“Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.”

Manish, Many Happy Returns Of The Day…:D
I know this day is special for many Indians too due to Makarsankranti, Pongal and so on :D so
Happy Makarsankranti To All
I still remember the time when your critic nature attracted me and I started following your posts on the Urdu site :D…and always used to wonder when this guy will read my poetry and comment…:D, as it was not only your sincere critic but also the taste of music that was similar to my choice and the thinking aspect…yes we match in so many aspect and that made us what we are today :D!
You had tested my patience I guess, as I had to remind you that you have to visit to amateur section to read my poetry.
I am not sure but its been almost 5-6 years to our friendship and I can say we do share the silence together as well :D

Happy Birthday Dost and I do cherish our fri…

Who takes the child by the hand, takes the mother by the heart

She is always very cautious and society fearing yet she has a very strong willpower.Once she decided she is bound to do it, strive and achieve was her motto.That’s how she completed her studies and moved to a different city, as she was determined to get a job specially when people used to talk about marriages for her :D
Though she was cautious her teaching was always to stand on your feet! Be independent as one never know what may happen in future. I kind of took this so seriously in life that…study and then career became my motto but I was the black sheep in the family who always questioned and looked for a logical/scientific reasoning for most of her myths/teachings which she got from her mother.I have troubled her so much that many times she used to get angry saying you and your scientific reasoning…it was fun though but in reality I was trying to find my own answers, trying to justify my beliefs and thoughts!
Out of all her strict nature, she was a good friend always wanted me to lo…

“Now it seems to me that love of some kind is the only possible explanation of the extraordinary amount of suffering that there is in the world.”

This morning when I got up a word stuck into my mind…’suffering’! When I looked outside my bedroom window, I saw its dark and cloudy and its raining!My well known friends here must be very well aware that how much I love rain :DAnd imagine the suffering of not getting into it and enjoy the showering of natures love :D
Besides all this even after taking flu-shots I have been stuck with cold so that adds another restriction for not being in the rain ….:D! All this made me think, is it really suffering? As something that is suffering for one person could be pleasure to others!"To become a spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life."~ Oscar Wilde

I tried to justify myself, such as a drug addict, he will inject himself and when we see its so painful but ask that person and he will describe the pleasure of it! There can be ample of examples…a would be mother she suffers everything for the baby who is in her womb…if she is sick she will bear the pain but not e…

It was holiday season and really how time flew away being with friends…I just couldn’t make out about that :DI thought I will start new year with some cool topics…but what happened while 2006 was ending…it makes me feel as if as the years are passing by we as human are getting worse!I am talking about Saddam’s execution! I literally felt very bad for what was done…! I know he did crime on humanity but and still when they showed in the news about Saddam in my heart and mind I felt sad…and am proud to feel so as that shows I am still a human…I do have that element of humanism in me!“Death is terrifying because it is so ordinary. It happens all the time.”
MK Gandhi had said if you take an eye for eye then this world will be full of blind people…and I don’t think what he said was wrong!!!
I think we are getting worse as the years are passing by, human element is getting eradicated and I believe no matter whose death it is but death not something which should be celebrated.“Love is stronger…
