Perspective ( Take Time To Think )

Today we have higher buildings and wider highways, but shorter temperments and narrower points of view.

We spend more but enjoy less,
We have bigger houses but smaller families,
We have more compromises but less time,
We have more knowledge, but less judgement,
We have more medicines but less health.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much.

We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors.
We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.

We have higher income, but less morals... 
These are times with more liberty but less joy...
We have much more food, but less nutrition.

These are days in which two salaries go home, but divorces increase.
These are times of finer houses but more broken homes.


That's why I propose that as from today,

You do not keep waiting for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion.
Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to the needs.

Pass more time with your family, eat your favorite food, visit the place you love.

Life is a chain of momentsof enjoyment; it isn't only survival.
Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it.

Take out from your vocabulary phrases like "one of these days" and "someday."
Let's write that letter we thought of writing "one of these days."

Let's tell our families and friends how much we love them.
That's why, do not delay anything adding laughter and joy to your life.
Every day, every hour, and minute are special...
and you don't know if it will be your last...

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana: आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च  सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् । धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष:  धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥ AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm | dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH|| Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals.  Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma.  Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13): रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः | राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३|| raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH | raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13 "Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world.

Microsoft moving to Live (Online sofware services)

Microsoft plans to launch Internet-based complements to its core products(Windows and Office), that create opportunities for the company to sell online subscriptions and advertising. Windows Live is a set of Internet-based personal services, such as e-mail, blogging and instant messaging. Office Live will come in both ad-based and subscription versions that augment MS' Office suite. The programs won't replace the paid software but instead seem aimed at capturing its online share. Windows Live at Live.com . From BBC The move to online software services is closely linked to the spread of high-speed access to the internet, as online software services are only as good as a user's access to the web. Mr Gates, who is Microsoft's chairman and chief software architect, said the strategic shift would change his company's approach to doing business: "We are trying to put a 'service plus software' mentality into many of the product groups inside Microsoft."
