For My Friend

( From my friend )

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.

And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.

And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.

"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.

Around the corner, yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir," "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.

Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.
Seize the day. Never have regrets.
And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family,
for they have helped make you the person that you are today.

Save Inidan Economy

SAVE INDIA   !!!
U CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE INDIAN ECONOMY BY FOLLOWING FEW SIMPLE STEPS.

Small example,
Before 5 months!              1 CAN $ = INDRs 32
After  5 months. Now it is  1 CAN $ = IND Rs 37

I don't think so, Canadian Economy is booming, but Indian Economy is Going Down ..

Our Economy is in our hands
Do u know this, INDIAN economy is in a crisis - As you are all aware ! INDIAlike many other ASIAN countries, INDIAis undergoing a severe economic crunch. Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation.   More than 30000 crore rupees of foreign ex! change are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages...etc which are grown, produced and consumed here .

A cold drink that costs only 70/80 paise to produce is sold for NINE rupees, and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy.

Did you know that " COCA COLA " and " SPRITE " belong to the same multinational company, "COCA COLA " ?  

On one hand coke advertisements say that ' JO CHAHO HOJAYE, COCACOLA ENJOY' (i.e . whatever the hell, let it happen, you drink coke) ; and on the other hand,

Sprite says that ' BHUJAO ONLY PYAS, BAKI ALL BAKWAS' (i.e. drinks can just quench thirst all other claims are false).

What can you do ?
You can consider some of the better alternatives to aerated drinks.

For that matter PEPSI is also the same

you can drink LEMON JUICE, FRESH FRUIT JUICES, CHILLED LASSI (SWEET OR SOUR), BUTTER MILK, CO! CONUT WATER, JALJEERA, ENERJEE, MASALA MILK..........

Everyone deserves a healthy drink, including you!
Over and above all this, economic sanctions have been imposed on us. We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our! r own interests we request everybody to use

INDIAN products only for next two years.
With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not do this, the rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much more for the same products in the near future.  

What you can do about it?

1. Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.
2. ENROLL as many people as possible for this cause.


Each individual should become a leader for this awareness.  
This is the only way to save our country from severe economic crisis.
You don't need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate product.

All categories of products are available from WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.

Do you know! That the cotton is produced in the INDIAN villages, threads are produced in the INDIAN towns, dresses are stitched in INDIAN cities and clothes are purchased by INDIAN customers?  

But it is BRANDED as MANUFACTURED BY A MULTINATIONAL COMPANY for which we LOSE PRECIOUS FOREIGN EXCHANGE.

THE POINT TO NOTE:
THE MONEY IS GOING TO SOME DEVELOPEDCOUNTRIES. It is TRUE.

PLEASE go to the remote areas of cities AND SEE FOR YOURSELF THE TRUTH.  

Thousands of poor innocent INDIANS are working as tailors for stitching the

WORLD'S POPULAR READYMADE CLOTHES (ALAN PAINE, PETER ENGLAND ETC.....)
, . BUT THEY ARE PAID A POOR AMOUNT.

THIS IS HAPPENING BECUSE OF OUR IGNORANCE.   INDIAIS ONE OF THE MAJOR TEXTILE EXPORTER IN THE WORLD.
OUR TAILORS ARE FAMOUS EVEN IN COUNTRIES LIKE US AND
UK.
THEN WHY SHOULD WE BLINDLY GIVE IN TO THE ATTRACTION OF FOREIGN BRANDS?
PLEASE THINK ABOUT IT.

Every INDIAN product you buy makes a big difference. It saves
INDIA.
Let us take a firm decision today.

BUY INDIAN TO BE INDIAN

we are not against of foreign products.
WE ARE NOT ANTI-MULTINATIONAL.

WE ARE TRYING TO SAVE OUR NATION.
EVERY DAY IS A STRUGGLE FOR A REAL FREEDOM.  


WE ACHIEVED OUR INDEPENDENCEAFTER LOSING MANY LIVES.
THEYDIED PAINFULLY TO ENSURE THAT WE LIVE PEACEFULLY. THE CURRENT TREND IS VERY THREATENING.


MULTINATIONALS CALL IT GLOBALISATION OF INDIAN ECONOMY. FOR INDIANS LIKE YOU AND ME IT IS RECOLONISATION OF
INDIA.  

THE COLONIST'S LEFT INDIATHEN. BUT THIS TIME THEY WILL MAKE SURE THEY DON'T MAKE ANY MISTAKES.

WHO WOULD LIKE TO LET A"GOOSE THAT LAYS GOLDEN EGGS" SLIP AWAY.


PLEASE REMEMBER: POLITICAL FREEDOM IS USELESS WITHOUT ECONOMIC
INDEPENDENCE.

RUSSIA , S.KOREA , MEXICO........THE LIST IS VERY LONG!!
LET US LEARN FROM THEIR EXPERIENCE AND FROM OUR HISTORY.

LET US DO THE DUTY OF EVERY TRUE INDIAN.



FINALLY
: IT'S OBVIOUS THAT U CAN'T GIVE UP ALL OF THE ITEMS MENTIONED ABOVE,
SO GIVE UP ATLEAST ONE ITEM TO FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY.LITTLE DROPS MAKE A GREATOCEAN.  


Jai Hind...............

No Excuses...

Don't you just hate it when people make excuses for their failures? So do I. But do you know what I hate even more? Finding myself making excuses for my failures! I have a policy that I try to live by: No excuses.

Here are some thoughts on a "No Excuses" policy.

People will respect you. When you say that there are no excuses, that you blew it, and that you take full responsibility to make the situation right, people will be astounded (since very few people make no excuses) and they will come to a greater respect of you.

You will find yourself taking greater responsibility. When you know that your policy is to have no excuses, there will be less room for error because you will be doing everything that you can to make sure the job gets done!

You will become the "go to" person. When someone wants something done, they will turn to you because they know that they can count on you to perform. And they know they won't get any excuses! This will improve your level of success, and that is exactly what you are aiming for, right?

Practice up: "You're right. There is no excuse for that. I will fix it immediately."

Bend, but don't break...

One of my fondest memories as a child is going by the river and sitting idly on the bank.

There I would enjoy the peace and quiet, watch the water rush downstream, and listen to the chirps of birds and the rustling of leaves in the trees. I would also watch the bamboo trees bend under pressure from the wind and watch them return gracefully to their upright or original position after the wind had died down.

When I think about the bamboo tree's ability to bounce back or return to it's original position, the word resilience comes to mind. When used in reference to a person this word means the ability to readily recover from shock, depression or any other situation that stretches the limits of a person's emotions.

Have you ever felt like you are about to snap? Have you ever felt like you are at your breaking point?

Thankfully, you have survived the experience to live to talk about it.

During the experience you probably felt a mix of emotions that threatened your health. You felt emotionally drained, mentally exhausted and you most likely endured unpleasant physical symptoms.

Life is a mixture of good times and bad times, happy moments and unhappy moments. The next time you are experiencing one of those bad times or unhappy moments that take you close to your breaking point, bend but don't break. Try your best not to let the situation get the best of you.

A measure of hope will take you through the unpleasant ordeal. With hope for a better tomorrow or a better situation, things may not be as bad as they seem to be. The unpleasant ordeal may be easier to deal with if the end result is worth having.

If the going gets tough and you are at your breaking point, show resilience.

Like the bamboo tree, bend, but don't break.
