A story of integrity….

In the wake of numerous chain snatching events throughout India in the past few years, this story comes as a refreshing one…Humanity still exists, a heart warming story this one… 🙂

Youth returns gold chain found on road

Kolar: In a case of display of honesty, a youth has returned a gold ‘mangalasutra’ which he found on the road to its owner here.

Mala, a resident of Karanjikatte locality, lost her mangalasutra on Wednesday when she went out for shopping. Even after a frantic search, she could not find the chain, and later gave up her effort.

Tabarez, a mechanic working in a garage in Rajanagar area, found the mangalasutra while he was returning to his house. He decided to trace its owner and explained his intention to some of his friends.

Among his friends were residents of Karanjikatte who were aware about Ms. Mala losing the chain. They took Mr. Tabarez to Ms. Mala’s house and returned the chain to her.

A relieved Ms. Mala expressed deep gratitude to Mr. Tabarez and praised his integrity.

‘The Paradox of our time.’

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,
but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our
possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and
hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to
life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but
have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer
space but not inner space.

We’ve done larger things, but not better things. We’ve cleaned up the air,
but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less.

We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold
more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less
and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one
night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer,
to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the
stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time
when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your
side.

Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you because that is the only
treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent. Remember,
to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all
mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep
inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday
that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak
and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

New Year!.. New Hope!.. New Life!

So here we are again!…Stepping into another brand new year!.. With a lot of hope and aspiration in our hearts :)… To me this part of the year is very very exciting… It’s that time of the year when I actually analyse the previous year and how it has gone for me…The highs and the lows…The victories as well as failures..I also make a blueprint of the coming year.. How am I going to navigate through 2013! 🙂

January 1st might be just another day in our life. But there is something about the new year. It gives us freshness. It makes us want to turn things around. It might be a physical goal, a financial goal, a spiritual goal, a psychological goal..the list goes on…The collective soul of this world is reaching out to become bigger, better & stronger than what it was the previous year.

There in lies the beauty of us humans. We might be hit by the worst of hurricanes, tsunamis or earthquakes..We might wake up to hear gruesome stories that happen in and around us…We might have been hurt,cheated and broken by our near and dear ones…

But we still have the strength to hope for a better tomorrow..We still are determined to turn things around..And as long as this indomitable spirit is within us we will prevail over all darkness.

So this coming year let us all hope :)..Lets make every dream of ours become a reality. Let us be fighters who are not afraid of losing…Let us be hard-workers in our workplaces and institutions.  Let us be people who are not afraid of loving or trusting.. Let us be compassionate to the poor and also help them out keeping in mind that inflation hits beggars too!…Let us cherish each moment we spend with friends and family… Let us be responsible individuals and realise that what we do has the power to make or break another person’s life… Let us search for honour and integrity more than money or fame.. Let us respect our elders and give them the place they deserve in our lives… Let us be bold in times of doubt and uncertainty…

I can go on and on like this. It’s coz I believe that we are all children of God and we have the potential to move mountains. 🙂 Hope the positivity spreads into your minds and hearts as you read this. 😀

‘My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

Happy New Year 2013 in advance,

Challenging The Conventional…

Just stumbled upon this video while I was ‘Youtubing’ tonight. Dr. Benny Prasad holds the world record for being the youngest person to travel the whole world in the shortest period of time. He also is also the inventor of an instrument called the ‘Bentar’.
He has an awesome message about never giving up in life no matter what and also living a life of integrity. Listen to this video carefully as it has potential to change your entire life this very moment :)…Enjoy :)…Cheers!!
