Debt Kills !

We may not realise until it kills us. First it kills our pride, then it kills us completely.
We have to learn to live with our ability. Not everyone is born equal. Everyone is different. We can be motivated by others' success, not depressed. Piling up riches for future is going on , on one side.. Debt-ridden 'proud' people are killing themselves on other side. We have to learn to live in the NOW. Everyone is a genius in some way or other. We have to identify our power. If we dont realise our power, and try to imitate other successful persons, we become mediocres.
Why should we borrow money for the marriage of our children?
Why dont we live with what we have?
Even in the midst of poverty, one can be grateful to the Almighty that he has good health-physical and mental. What is the use of money for a person who has no health- unable to consume anything but bread and water !!!
We can find positive thoughts in any emergency. What the farmers need is counselling. The Govt should not 'cheat' anyone by false promises. The people should not live by seeing the money in others' pocket.
Debt is very very dangerous. All the loans look 'sweeter' in the beginning. You'll find the real 'taste' when you are short of money to pay the installments.
Those who are rich, spend your money wisely. Those who are financially poor, dont borrow money for living.. and life is always fair.

Are you scared? You are IN.

First there were those life insurance agents. They remind us that our life is precious . We have to take care our family even after death. So we buy a Life Insurance Policy. Our family is secured.
Then they reminded us about our health. We should have some money for our treatments when our health deteriorates all of a sudden. If all our fortunes made by us are used to treat our ailment, we are made to understand that our family will secretely first and openly then disapprove it. So inorder to save from that embarassment, we take a Health Insurance Policy. Now they reminds us about the 'extra' money we must have save oursleves from the embarassment of begging our own money from our kids. So we opted for a Pension Plan. Our life is pleasant.
Now I came to know that there are two options: either live healthy or live unhealthy. They told me that if we live with our current diet, we will soon be short of nutrients. So they helped me to stay healthy by using their food suppliments. All the protein I need a day is available in a capsule!!!
God knows what comes next!!

Independence Day musings

Lemme start with an ol' joke.
"A foreign delegation comes to India . Meets the MPs.
One: We are the Single Largest Party. We are in opposition.
Two: We are the Second Largest Party. We support the Govt from outside.
Three: We are the Third Largest Bloc. We also support the Govt from outside.
Four: I am the only MP of our party. I am a cabinet minister.
Five: I didn't win the election. I am the Prime Minister"

So Independent. Any Independent can be a Cabinet Minister !!!

Is winning a Panchayat seat a credit?
It is, if it is won as an Independent.
When will we get freedom from fear?
Hey, I'm not afraid of anything. Aiyyo !!!!

They say that the entire script of our life is already written . So what is our role ? Why we are taught about right and wrong ? If the events are to happen according to a written script, why should we bother? I think many of us will share this concern.
What I believe now is that, though many "milestones" or "keyframes" of our life are fixed, the path to attain those solely depends on us. We are programmed to move according to paths we chose to reach the same destination. Some paths may be curved so that we might not see the milestone directly and through the shortcut it may be very near. So I believe, this is our role in our life - to choose the right path. There are many "helpbooks" available. Occassional inputs are given by The Almighty himself. We have to listen to our heart.Though this interpretation might seem simple, it could be made even simpler by any other person. We need not believe that the "solutions" of life is entirely complex and can be understood only by "masters".
Believe in yourself and be ready to get the "inputs" from The Creator !!!

Who is Rich ?

The person who can afford to spare his richness to others is rich. A billionaire is not rich if he thinks that he is not rich enough and that he cannot afford to help the poor. The richness is applicable to every walk of life, not only limited to money. You can be rich in happiness if you can make others happy. You can be rich in politeness, arrogance, love, hatred, anything you name it.
I like to be rich in good feelings and to be a nil in hatred and hypocrisy. Not that I'm not an hypocrat. Not that I dont have hatred. Its my wish.
If we want to enjoy all the good riches for ourselves, are we rich? No. If we are able to share and spare our riches to others, then we are rich.
Let the whole world be rich in love and care..........

Friendship is a very precious relationship.It spans across gender, religion, beliefs, countries, color, age and what not.I am fortunate to have atleast a small set of friends, my wife being one of those.Friends always help in need.No false excuses will be made.I can't forget the timely motivation of my friend to complete my studies successfully.I can't forget my friend who taught me the difference between love, lust and infatuation.Friends are really very essential to get the right advice at the right time.
May be because I come from God's own country, The Almighty is a friend of mine. He gives me invaluable inputs at innumerable occasions.
Be friendly to yourself and enjoy!!!

We are very keen about the amount of pesticide content in Pepsi and Coke. Some say its 20 times the approved minimum, some say its more than 200 times!!! The debate goes on. There are movements against these "imperialist" companies. Our leaders are even requesting our celebrities not to "pose" for these companies. All that said, are we so keen about the smoking, drugs and alocoholics? No. Because, these are the main revenue generators. Also they help to contain the population explosion. The excise duty on the liquors contribute the lion's share in the revenue of many of the states. The exorbitant tax on the cigarettes contributes another big sum.Though "banned", we have seen recently the easy availability and "abuse" of cocaine, heroine etc, as these things are becoming the essentials in "partying".Only if the Indian public is not healthy, the multi speciality hospitals will have "business".Otherwise how the doctors who pay more than 60 lakhs to become doctors, get their money back!! "Enjoy your life tension free, but dont forget to take this medcine" was the advice of an ayurvedic product.Its like "Go and kill someone and come back to me, I'll save you" advice by an advocate.Our agonies and sorrows are "sold" and "marketed" in the media.Disaster relief funds end up as 'ChiefMinister's" or "PrimeMinister's" relief funds.
Still, I am optimistic. Instead of going afetr non-issues, we should take part actively in the nation building. We need not distance ourselves away from anything..We should not shy away from politics.First of all lets DeAddict ourselves from our greed.. Lets share our fortunes.Lets DeAddict ourselves from intoxication..Lets be humans.
DeAddict ourselves from Smoking , Drugs and Alcoholics!!! A bright future awaits us.

Marriage - Beginning of a new Life!!!

Its the end of another life as well... the stringless life. in an age in which we feel we can change the world.. friends, humor,ecstasy,thrills...
Atleast most of the women will lose all these after marriage. and gets a new batch of things...Strings from society, house... commitments, responsibility..
Its not bad, but its a different world altogether. Husband/wife, kids, household, job, school, food, shopping....Only a minority continue their pre-marital friendships..Men are more fortunate. They are mostly free to maintain the friendships. But women take it their responsibility to avoid the friends..But the love between the couples can dilute all the other losses. Its really wonderful..Love and trust goes together. Parenting is another wonderful experience, though its not very essential to make the life beautiful. Children take us back to our childhood. They remind us the duties to our parents.

Six wonderful years and counting!!!

Why cant I be the Prime Minister?

Man, are you crazy? This post is reserved to politicians.
Then how Manmohanji became the PM?
Oh, he was posted by politicians..
I heard he was posted by Soniaji, she was not an active politician.
She was the wife of our late Prime Minister, so she is a politician.
Sorry for being dumb, can educated persons become politicians?
As a matter of fact, yes. But the general trend is not that.
Can you make it more clear, please?
We all want to become professionals and make our children also professionals. ie the jobs with social status. eg. engineer, doctor,mbas, software professional, civil service and like...there are more.. We teach our children that politics is for the unprivileged. Let them strike and you study..
So we study and become professionals. The unprivileged dont study and become politicians. And they become our leaders . They represent us to become MLAs, MPs and ministers. Is that clear?
No comments, sir. If I do they will deny me a ticket.
