Women in India

In the West the wife governs the home. In an Indian home it is the mother who controls.
In the West the woman is wife. In India she is the mother. The mother is worshipped as the goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of prosperity) of the house.
According to Manu Smriti: "From the point of view of reverence due, a teacher is ten fold superior to a mere lecturer, a father a hundredfold to a teacher, and a mother a thousandfold to a father."

On Abortion

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: 'Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I'm pregnant again. I don't want kids so close together.

So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'

She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.' She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrifie…

Dalai Lama on most surprising thing about humanity

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered 
"Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

10 things to learn from JAPAN

The Calm - Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.The Dignity - Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.The Ability - The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn't fall.The Grace – People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.The Order – No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.The Sacrifice – Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?The Tenderness – Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.The Training – The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.The Media – They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.The Conscience – When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

Boss Vs Wife

Two things in life that are difficult to achieve: 

To plant your idea in someone's head. To plant someone's money in your own pocket. 
The one who succeeds in the former- is a 'teacher'.
The one who succeeds in the latter- is a 'boss'.
The one who succeeds in both is a 'wife'.  
The one who fails in both is a 'husband'

Customer

A customer is the most important visitor to our premises.
He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him.
He is not an interruption on our work. He is the purpose of it.
He is not an outsider on our business. He is a part of it.
We are not doing him a favor by serving him.
He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.
