This is Life...!

Gone all the days
When we used to be for hours with our friends
Now we don’t have time to say HI…!

Gone all the days
When we used to chat with friends on grounds
Now we rarely chat in the chat rooms…!

Gone all the days
When we used to study just to pass
Now we study to save our jobs…!

Gone all the days
When we used to have no money in our pockets & still fun filled our hearts
Now we have tons which are of no use…!

Gone all the days
When we shouted on the roads
Now we rarely speak…!

Gone all the days
But not the Memories
This will be lingering in our heart forever and ever…!


There is no point in being grow up if u can’t be childish sometimes

Thats why I am saying that- Always make time to say HI….
When you find any one
Without smile
Smile and Spread Smiles…!
Why worry and have wrinkles
When you can smile and have Dimples…!

Its my Birthday...

Today is 11 October, my birthday. Happy birthday to me I am now 21. Usually I do not celebrate my birthday. I would always keep it in my heart and never expose that today is my birthday.

Today my friends celebrated my birthday very nicely with sweet, yummy, lovely birthday cake. Lots of bumps and full on masti. When they wish me I do feel happy or persuade to be happy but some thinking always knocks me in my heart. I try to think why is birthday treated as a happy day? Maybe we know our life is very short and birthday means we lost a year from our life and we want to forget it by celebrating birthday or we want to live our life with full of joy and birthday gives us a special day or we can say that we have grown 1 year more and this is the reason to celebrate a birthday. I know there maybe a lot of answers.
In the whole year, I just forget that I have already passed many time in my life but birthday reminds me that. Then I start to calculate what I have done so far and what I should do within the remaining time. I know this calculation is useless but I can’t control myself to release from thinking. My birthday becomes meaningless when I think about the orphan boy in the street; my birthday wish kills me when I see a hungry street boy is crying for food. Yes, my birthday will become a perfectly tensionless celebrating birthday, when these problems will be no longer and that day will come very soon then I’ll celebrate my Birthday with full of Happiness. It doesn’t mean that I am not happy today I am happy but not completely because something is missing.
Missing parents and some special friends during birthday celebration.
The most inspiring lines I have ever heard, “There are two great days in a human’s life- one is when he/she is born and second is the day he/she proves why he/she is born.

Pearl of wisdom- Believe in your self

One day two children were born in the same local hospital. Both of them received excellent care. They went to the same school and, unlike many of their generation, lived their whole life in the same area.
Both had parents who read to them, checked on their homework, and came to their afterschool activities. They both had afterschool jobs in high school and both attended the same well regarded state college. Graduation came four years later and then entrance into the job world.
If you compared their transcripts and test scores side by side, these two individuals would appear remarkably the same.
Yet, ten years later they came to their high school reunion, one was on the fast track to upper management and making $200,000 a year minimum. There other had two lateral job changes with little change in salary or responsibilities.
Why would these two similar people be in such different places in their lives?
If you had been a fly on the wall in their growing up years, you would have seen and heard the difference.
One of them grew up with the belief that anything could be accomplished. A problem was just a temporary impediment, a puzzle to be solved. And that one knew the solution would be found.
The other grew up with the belief that life was a constant struggle that would prevent anyone from achieving their goals.
In short, one believed that for every problem, there was a solution. The other believed that problems kept you from what you wanted to accomplish.
These two very different beliefs about difficulties in life, determined what would happen when there were bumps and barriers in the road.
The belief that there is always a solution allowed the subconscious mind to search for solutions. There were only temporary set-backs. You can almost see an SUV commercial with the vehicle finding a way around obstructions or barreling through rough terrain.
When programmed with "Problems keep you from what you want," there is no searching for solutions. Hopes and dreams come to a halt.
Your thoughts and self-talk are signs of what you believe. If you continually cheer yourself on, you believe you will find a solution. If you tear yourself apart, you believe obstacles become immovable forces.
If you are one of the folks who feel others have all the luck, it is time to look at your beliefs about yourself, others and the problems that face you. When you believe that a solution is present, you just have to find it, your inner resources open up to find that solution.
“If you wish others to believe in you, you must first convince them that you believe in them”

PARYUSHAN PARVA a Jain festival

Generally, festivals are celebrations and jubilations characterized by excitement, enthusiasm, enjoyments and entertainments; but in the Jain Religion ( one of the oldest religion in the world, has its own significance and is widely known for its Non-Violence- Ahims Parmo Dharma-- live and let live) festivals are characterized by renunciation, austerities, study of the scriptures, repetition of holy hymns, meditation, and expressing devotion for the Paramatma.The Jain community like other communities throughout the world celebrates many social and religious functions annually. The superb Jain festival popularly known as ‘Paryushan Parva’ organized every year.
• festival of self friendship and realization of soul
• Festival of sacrifice, penance & endurance
• Festival of soul purification & self search
• The time to make the enemy a friend & increase the love and kindness
The Paryushan parva is the most important festival among the Jain festivals. Paryushan is a festival of self-discipline through fasting, reading of scriptures, observing silence and other ascetic practices. It is compared with water works through which one can clean one's soul from the dirt of Karmas. Men, women and children as well as monks and nuns undertake fasts with varying strictness. In Jainism, fasting is considered as a spiritual activity, that purify our souls, improve morality, spiritual power, increase knowledge and strengthen relationships. Jain festivals are not meant for eating, drinking and to make merry. Jain festivals are celebrated by penance, Jap (recitation of Mantra) prayer, worship and friendship. The most important part of Paryushan is daily meditation and prayer.The purpose is to purify our souls by staying closer to our own souls, looking at our faults and asking for forgiveness for the mistakes and taking vows to minimize our faults. Also a time when Jains will review their action towards their animals, environment and every kind of soul. Forgiveness in as important aspect of the celebration. All will ask for forgiveness for any violence or wrongdoings they may have imposed previous year. The practice of forgiving transcends religious boundaries.
Last day of paryushan maha parva, known as Samvatsari. Old quarrels are forgotten and friendships and relationships renewed as they fold their hands and say Michhami Dukkadam or Please forgive me. Samvatsari Parva “The festival which is celebrated annually to subdue all passions and lustful desires. To ask for forgiveness is the toughest thing to do. Therefore, our great Acharyas have said:
"Kshama Viram Bhushanam, Kshamavani Michchha Mi Dukkadam"
- To ask for forgiveness is a great quality of the brave ones and if I have committed any mistake, knowingly or unknowingly, I ask for your forgiveness.

The real purpose of the Paryushan is to purify our soul by staying closer to our own soul, to look at our own faults, to ask for forgiveness for the mistakes we have committed, and take vows to minimize our faults.

Silence is Golden

A woman goes to the doctor, beaten black and blue.

Doctor: “What happened?”

Woman: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every time my husband comes home drunk he beats me to a pulp.”

Doctor: “I have a real good medicine for that. When your husband comes home drunk, just take a glass of chamomile tea and start gargling with it. Just gargle and gargle.”

Two weeks later the woman comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

Woman: “Doctor, that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband came home drunk, I gargled with chamomile tea. I gargled and gargled, and nothing happened!”

Doctor: “You see how keeping your mouth shut helps?”

Organisation of 51th century

You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary:-
If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.
If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.
If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Sick Days:-
We will no longer accept a doctor’s statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days:-:
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturdays and Sundays.

Bathroom Breaks:-
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the ‘Chronic Offenders’ category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company’s mental health policy.

Think out of the box - A funny story

One afternoon a wealthy lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.

Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate. He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"

"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them all, as well," the lawyer answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."

The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place; the grass is almost a foot high!"

Its time for Quick Service Retailers in India

Many people who are in a hurry or too tired to do the regular day to day shopping would have wished for a comfortable drive thru shopping experience like they buy their meal from McDonald's.
But supermarket or grocery stores unlike burger joints stocks hundreds of items. And hence it would be very difficult to service customers as and when they arrive with their shopping list.
The next best thing that these retailers can do is to give option to their regular customers to call or SMS their shopping list and then later drive through the shop to pay and collect their items.
Well, additional facilities like these might not bring big revenues to the retailers but it will certainly enhance their brand value, as there is a genuine need from customers for such service. Will Indian retail giants like Reliance Retail, Future group, Bharti or Aditya Birla Retail think about it.

The trends to follow in the future for quick service:
The Indian Organized retail sector will grow up to 10% of total retailing by 2010.
No one single format can be assumed as there is a huge difference in cultures regionally.
The most encouraging format now would be the hypermarts.
The hypermart format would be further encouraged with the entry of the TNCs.

Customers are also looking for convenience in shopping. This would continue more strongly in the next couple of years. In future the more dual income families, the consumer’s ability to spend will increase, but at the same time it is predicted that the time available for shopping will go down, in such scenario, the retailers will have to take steps to develop shopping as an experience, though the more successful retailers will be those that will provide faster service.
Thereby to succeed in retailing, current and future retailers must be able to adopt a constantly changing environment, successfully retailers are able to anticipate and adapt to change.

Do business Idea really matters

"Wo khte hai na bade se bada business ek bade business idea se bada hota hai"

Here I am going to share a story of a man who again proved the above quote. The man about whom I am going to talk is a person who enter into beverage industry with 32 years of experience in food industry and multiple ventures. Mr. G. Srinivas Rao starts his venture into beverage industry. He launched his brand named Cane-O-La, a pioneer in branded sugarcane juice. Our desi beverage , the sugarcane which is normally sold at street venders has now a brand name because of Mr. Rao.
Launched in September 2006 as a healthy, hygienic and economical alternative to non-alcoholic beverages. The response to Cane-O-La has been more then satisfactory. “Cane juice sold by venders is not hygienic, we serve a 100 % chemical free drink” says Mr. Rao referring to his concept of branded sugarcane juice. Cane-O-La has built up a healthy set of corporate clients targeting all segments like Infosys, Toyota, Kirsolkar, Aviva, Spencers, Wipro and city’s railway station.

You need three things to create a successful startup:
• Start with good people
• Make something customers actually want
• Spend as little money as possible

Most startups that fail do it because they fail at one of these. A startup that does all three will probably succeed.
Every business starts with an IDEA whether the IDEA is original, borrowed, or bought, the IDEA is the heart of any business through all stages in its life. If there is no idea, there is no business. The IDEA is what will keep you fired up, and give you pride.
Look around having in mind some new idea or opportunity. Are there any similar businesses to the ones you want to create? If not, that should tell you something. Maybe your ideas are so cutting-edge that no one else has thought of them. That may be good later on, once you know how to start and run a new business, but the beginning of your journey isn't a good place to boldly go where no entrepreneur has gone before. Now is not the time to lead; it's the time to learn from others.

"Father's Day Special"

When I was just a tiny kid,
Do you remember when,
The time you kissed my bruises,
Or cleaned by soiled chin?

You scrambled for the balls I hit,
Yet, every time we'd play a game,
You praised the "outs" I caught.

It seems like only yesterday,
You wiped away my tears,
And late at night I called your name,
To chase away my fears.

Oh, do I thirst for years gone by,
To be that growing lad,
Re-living all of the memories,
Of growing with my dad.

Father's Day festival is considered extremely important as it help acknowledge the contribution of fathers to individual families and to societies as large. Father's Day provide children an opportunity to express love and respect for their fathers. The sentiment goes a long way in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in the emotional development of a child.
The idea of celebrating Father's Day Festival was given by Ms Sonora Dodd a loving daughter from Spokane. Her father Henry Jackson Smart single-handedly raised Sonora and five of her siblings after the death of her mother during childbirth. When Sonora attended a Mother's Day Sermon in 1909, she thought that if there is the day to honor mother then there should also be a corresponding day to honor fathers. Sonora worked relentlessly for years to ensure that the idea of Father's Day becomes a reality. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge first recognized Father's Day. In view of the massive popularity of the festival, in 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third Sunday of June.
Over the years, the concept of celebrating Father's Day spread beyond geographical boundaries. Today, millions of children across the world express gratitude for their dads as they celebrate Father's Day festival.

Significance of Father in our Lives
Many people laughed at Sonora Dodd when she gave the concept of having a Father's Day, as traditionally, only mother is regarded as the sole nurturer of a child. The role of father is often relegated to a secondary status as compared to a mother. But all of us know that father is just as important for a child as the mother is. If mothers are the heroes of child rearing, significance of father in the development and emotional well being of a child is no less. Children depend on their father for their spiritual, emotional, physical, financial and social well being. For daughters, father is the ideal man in the world (I think) and also the first man they adore, while for sons, father is an idol and the strongest man they aspire to emulate.
With most husband and wife working, fathers in present times are as involved in child rearing job as the mothers are. Today, most fathers do not shy away from changing nappy or taking the difficult task for putting the baby to sleep. This cultural change is helping in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in emotional development of a child and building of stronger family bonds.
Children must therefore take full opportunity of the day and express their gratitude for fathers with all their heart. The best way to do so is to do small things that daddy appreciates and by saying “I love you, Papa” with a gift of beautiful flower.
